RE: Daytime side trips without the 5th

X2 the ask and leave a contact number. We've been all over the country, and have found no problems in doing this. Always ask first. It is simply amazing just how nice people can be when you demonstrate just a little respect and courtesy. This same thing applies to over-nighting in a Wal-Mart lot. We always find the Manager on Duty and ask if it's ok, and if so, his preference where we should park. (ah, yes, and we do use a pin lock) Today's obsession with texting and social media has left far to many people without skills needed to talk to someone face-to-face.

RE: Financing your RV

I used State Farm, for financing and insurance. Great rates and great coverage.

RE: Hauling a Harley

I've carried 2 Ultra's cross country several times. Before I started I double checked all the factory tie-downs. They were predominantly wood screws and not gonna cut it. I replaced them with through bolts, large washers and lock-nuts. I used thread-locker on all. I figured it was my bike and my responsibility and the best insurance was a good defense. To date, no issues. Take a little time to go the extra mile. You'll be a lot more relaxed if you know how things are tied down and to what. Happy Camping!!

RE: Any Point On Heating

X2. Mine's over 4 years old now and I've never heated it in the winter. We've already been down to nearly zero. I keep mine in an enclosed storage unit, so I leave slides out, door open (screens closed) and roof vent open (with a piece of tape on hitch reminding me to close it). Never had a problem. We also remove all food, so, knock on wood, no mice.

RE: Added Sewer Hose Storage Tubes Under Belly

Awesome. I like the fact that the hose will fit with the connectors on it. I fell victim to the purchased version, round tube, but to narrow to hold the hose with the fittings on it. They are stored in the pass through storage. I'll be redoing mine come spring!

RE: 5th wheel hitch question

X2 from BB_TX, I've a Reese Signature Series, 24k hitch. Can move by myself, but it's a chore. There's also a faction on this board who release the hitch from the bed and raise the fiver up. (Thus lifting the hitch from the bed). I don't, but I would assume if the fiver can withstand all that stress from towing, a 120# hitch hanging from it shouldn't be a problem.

RE: MOR Ryde vs Dexter EZ Flex suspension

We've got the Dexter EZ Flex system and have had no problems at all. We've had it going on 4 years now, and with over 20,000 miles on the rig, it still does its job.

RE: Gas springs for fuzion doors

Camping World. Take your old one with you if you visit the store. If you order online, you'll need either the weight of the door (approx) or the part number from the side of your old lift (and length of lift). I've had very good luck with theirs and they are a little more reasonably priced.

RE: Advice needed to haul Can-Am Spyder on back of 5er

I would get a Toyhauler and load it. We pull a TH with a Spyder and an HD Unltra. We still get upwards of 26' of living space, bath and a half, and when we unload we have tons of room inside.

RE: portable air compressor

I have the same Porter Cable unit pictured above and will attest to the durability of it. Our garage flooded in August, after over 8" of rain in 2 hours. We had over 2 feet of water in the garage for over an hour. The compressor floated (upside down of course, with motor submerged) and after a few days of drying out, works fine. A little slower to get to pressure and sounds a little muffled, but still chuggs along. I figured it would be toast and was surprised when it fired up.

RE: MOR/ryde pin box

I have it on a 40' toyhauler, I love it. We went the first year without it and you feel every jerk from the rig. Added the new pin box and it got a whole lot smoother. It's money I'd spend again.

RE: Teflon disc attachment ideas?

What I was told, was that if the disc falls off, it's worn out. Replace it. For the cost of less than 3 gallons of fuel, it's a bah-gan!

RE: Having to be towed with 5ver. Has it happened to you?

This happened to me last summer on Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado. I was/am a Good Sam's member, they sent a flatbed for truck and another dually for the camper, and as mentioned above they towed the fiver to a nearby KOA campground and the truck to a Chevy dealer. (I have a toyhauler, so just unloaded the bikes and rode around while they worked on the truck. It was what I woiuld call, 'an excellant response' from Good Sam's. I'll be a member for life!

RE: New to TH and looking for advice on backing it up

As far as the tires scrubbing, they are designed for that. Couple of things, tire pressure is critical, I check mine before every trip. If you're going to back into tight places (and you never know when that may happen) the tires should be at the proper pressure (not to mention all of the other reasons). When backing in a tight turn (where the front and rear axles are dragging the tires, go slowwwwwly. The axles should flex a bit, and the tires will look really funny, but will be fine. And as mentioned above, I used a Orschlen parking lot when they were closed, cut up a dozen tennis balls (cut in half) and created 'situations' I had to get into and out of. Take your time and be patient. Helps to have a partner with a walkie-talkie so you can communicate easier. Have fun!

RE: Questions for Those Pulling 43ft TH with DRW Truck

I pull a 3950 Cyclone with (initially a 2009 Chevy DRW) now have a 2013 GMC Denali DRW. The GMC beats the Chevy. Neither had any real problem, and we use state parks in the Midwest with no problem, just have to be careful about site selection.

RE: Towing with gen running??

I've run mine from Missouri to Sturgis SD. 2 days, with 2 AC's and garage fridge on. I guess I am missing the concern?

RE: Attaching etrack to floor

I used similar inserts as gmc6000 did for my chocks in my TH, that way I can easily pull them out. Didn't use etrack in my TH, but did in my car hauler. I mixed up lag bolts with 1/4 inch washers/bolt/nyloc nuts where-ever I could gain access to them from underneath. And for the lags also added gorilla glue to the pre-drilled holes. In my TH, I replaced the factory supplied lags with washers/bolt/nyloc nuts for all my tie-downs. A 1000 lb bike is a lot of stress on little lag bolts. And yeah, I'm probably guilty of over-engineering the solutions but nothing ever moves....
