RE: new toy!

My wife has one. I have an Ultra. I've ridden the Spyder several times, and you can bet that when it comes time for my next purchase it will say Can-Am on the side. I love Harley's, but their trikes are a bear to ride and the Spyder is like sliding on greased glass..... (smoooooth & EZ). Love my HD, and have a million dollars (exaggeration) in gear and accessories, but, you got to do what you got to do! And the transition is a breeze, just forget you need to grab a-hold of it and man-handle it. A soft, gentle touch is all that's required!

RE: 4200D Cyclone toy hauler

I've had a Cyclone 3950 for about 5 years. Had some issues with it and had to work with the dealer quite a bit to get Heartland to stand behind it, but we dotted i's and crossed t's and they came through and it was all resolved. I think the trick is to find a dealer who is committed to supporting the product they sell. And, if you follow these forums you will find lovers and haters for every brand. Hard luck stories and miraculous stories as well. Find a good dealer and a floor play you like. Then be prepared to do some maintenance yourself and go enjoy yourself....

RE: Oil Change Interval Thoughts

It never ceases to amaze me, how people assume everyone in the world is privvy to their set of acronyms. I know it sounds stupid, but what is an OLM & an OE?

RE: one year with a 40' fifth wheel and dually

We tried the radios, and almost without exception forgot to charge them prior to needing them. We now use the DW's cell phone. She calls mine, it connects via the hands free in the cab and we can just talk. Works great! (ok, you'll be limited to where you can get a cell signal, but that is becoming more rare these days, especially in major parks).

RE: RV GPS and TPMS...yes or no

Lots of opinions. I like the TPMS system, and use it on my trailer. Not the truck. I moved up to 'good' tires last year, so it's not really as important now. As for the GPS, well, everyone's right, there's lots of GPS info available, on phones, built in to new trucks, but push come to shove, mine has saved my AC unit more than once. If you venture off the Interstate highways, you either need to do some serious research first, or just roll the dice. My RV is over 13' tall. (13' 4" at last measurement), I'm sure it varies by half an inch or more based on weight distribution, etc. I travel to Austin TX on a regular basis and there is a spot, some 90 miles north of Austin where the right lane is 13' 6". Yes, I might make it but Garmin reminds me in time to shift over to the left lane where it's over 14'. And I know an inch is as good as a mile, but, I figure just one good bounce as I go under that overpass and I lose an A/C unit and who knows what else. I bought the Garmin 465 Truckers version. I keep the maps current and it's done quite well by me. Paper maps still work, phone GPS units work, my new truck has a built in Nav system (just short of worthless in my book. Not sure who does the research for GM on these, but jeeze, take a look at the Industry leader and get a clue), but at the end of the day, when you can program how long, wide and tall you are and it takes that into account when routing you it's just that much less stress when you're driving. Enjoy!!!
