RE: No heat in northern home all winter.

Hmmmm maybe you should sell the 5000 sq ft home with the 10 bedrooms and get a smaller house?????? Holy Crp $4000 is a lot even for the bad winter y'all just had especially if set at 50 degrees. Maybe you left a window open?? But for real houses don't fare well with no heat at all. Drywall gets damp, paneling warps, tile will pop off etc. Maybe spend some money and winterize your home better to get the heat bill down. Or since you are only living in it part time it may be time to sell and downsize to a smaller home.

RE: Voltage owners. Wood under the slide outs?

I agree run away from it. When we went looking for a new to us 5er we liked the Big Horn. But they also did not use plastic under the slides. Every used Big Horn we looked at had floor rot in the slides or had the floor in the slides already replaced. I think they have since changed and now have plastic under the slides....

RE: tires for fiver

I really hate it when manufactures put 15 inch tires on a 5th wheel....that's a whole lot worse then putting Marathons on it.....

RE: MiFi vs Jetpack - strictly GB usage question ...

We have the Jetpack now and I kinda wish we had stayed with the 3g just using the phone as a hotspot and unlimited usage. Now we pay $20 a month for the Jetpack + the monthly amount for the usage. We try to keep usage down by not downloading big files, movies and pics etc. You can switch the usage package back and forth depending on if we are at home base or on the road. But it was nice to not worry about our usage and now I don't use the internet radio like I use to.....

RE: tires for fiver

Ditto on jimnlin's post...you would be crazy to put ST tires back on....any one of the LT tires he listed would be fine. I have had Goodyear Wrangler BF Goodrich's and now Michelins. I travel cross country and average 70 mph and have never had a tire problem.

RE: Good Soap To Wash An RV?

Most any of the wash/wax soaps will do. I have used everything from Blue Corral to Mothers. Something as big as an RV and usually white I have not noticed much if any difference in any of them. Now they will not get the black streaks off so you need something stronger for those.

RE: 2014 Dodge Ram Fifth Wheel Prep Option?

I wouldn't call the adapter reasonable at $313 which is the cheapest one I have seen. It's not much less then having rails mounted. Cost me $450 to have the rails moved to my new to me truck. I agree Dodge should have had their ducks in a row.....

RE: Towing Heavy 5er with SRW Truck

I would rather talk dry weights first since that is the only constant firm number. Unless you weigh your rig every time you go out you never know the exact weight. Mine is 10.6 dry but loaded I vary between 12k if just going out for the week to 12.5+ when going out for a month or 2 or 3.....Plus depending on the trailer depends on how much over dry the GVW will be. My gross is 14K lbs but my trailer never sees that kind of weight.... . But my take is I have towed mine with a single wheel and it was fine. Do I prefer my dually, heck yeah cause it is finer lol lol just like I had a 2wd dually but this 4wd dually handles even better.

RE: Winter in the Valley

LOL LOL LOL I love it when Yankees come to Texas lol lol......Surely y'all read in the brochure that we will switch from heat to AC and back to heat all in one day. Or that the weather here changes every 15 minutes sometimes. Some get fooled because it is soooo dang hot here in the summer that they think it surely can't get cold here... But then too I never thought 40 degrees could feel sooo dang cold. But for real we are setting records this winter....but then we may set a heat record this summer,,,hey it's Texas you can't predict the weather here.

RE: Black Tank Explosion

The tanks themselves are not very expensive but the labor to install is. The bill to replace my gray tank was $1000 but I think the tank was like $165, Extended warranty handled it. Since Montana's are know for their tanks bursting here is what a lot of folks use and claim it holds up very well Plasti-mend

RE: Bed in a Box Mattress Advice

That's all we have done for the past 6 years is get a good topper for the cheapo mattress in the rig. Makes it very comfortable...

RE: Dodge 2006 5.9L Issues

I had an 07 5.9 and it towed a lot of miles with no problems. As was said the weak link in I think the 03-06 was the tranny. Never heard a lot of problems with the lift pump. But if I had one that went I would put an aftermarket one in, problem solved.

RE: Bed in a Box Mattress Advice

Was gonna say, I saw them at Sams Club the other day. Buy it there and try it out, if it don't seem to be what you want then return it. You may have trouble getting it back in the box though lol lol lol.......

RE: Dallas,TX

Treetops, Grapevine and the RV park at Trader's Village are about your best choices. Grapevine is like being in a state park but not from from DFW. Traffic going into Dallas can be a bear from there. Treetops in Arlington is nice but in a congested area a high retail area, but still not too far from I-20. Trader's is close to I-20 and also 360 which gets you to I-30. I usually stay there since it is easier to get in and is easier to get on and off all major hwys that take me somewhere. The flea market on the weekends are a plus. Nice park with a pool and all concrete pads and roads and not bad price.

RE: Water Filter Advise

Hmmmmm go to Lowe's and get the whole house filter cost $25 for filter and fittings needed. Filters for it are also cheap so change them couple times a year. A lot of campgrounds are on wells, and you'll get lots of sediment from them. Plus if you go to the shore most times the water on the ocean tastes terrible along with the sand. A good filter can make it taste lots better...

RE: Walmart overnight stays allowed or not allowed

Here's a link that you can get all the different stores and truck stops that allow boondocking over night. If you play with it you will see you can look by list or by map for each state. There is also an app for your cell phone. There is a pro version that they charge for but I don't know the difference cause I just use the free version as a guide. So far it has been fairly accurate but you still need to call or talk to the mgr to verify, it does give you the address and the telephone number of the store you are looking at....... Allstays

RE: Forest river cardinal vs keystone Montana ?

One is Keystone's top RV and the other is Forest River's. Both are comparable companies and the RV's are comparable too. Probably boil it down to price and the colors you want. If you are worried about decals get the full body paint with a Big Sky. Worried about the slide floors rotting then just check them after heavy rains. They both will have problems as all RV's do. They are on the same level, if you want better look at the Landmarks, Mobile Suite or even Redwoods etc. Of course the price goes up..........

RE: Question on camp chairs

Same here, dang zero gravity chairs are comfortable but they are heavy and bulky so rarely get used lol lol. We are looking at those Club chairs now since we sat in one at an RV show and they are very comfortable. Bag chairs are no problem to carry and need them for guests.....
