RE: First RV show

This was a decent RV show years ago https://www.chicagorvshow.com/ haven't I been there in 6 years. We're in Florida :) that time of year and the only show we've been to lately is Tampa.

RE: Dometic dm2852 help

It seems to early for a 2014 refrigerator for the tubing to leak but you never can tell. It should be cooling if the gas is heating the boiler unless there is a leak in the tubing. You want to check if there is any yellow powder in the back of the fridge which would indicate a leak.

RE: Rear Living Room with only 2 slides?

There is no perfect 5th wheel and anyway there are no 2 RVers that have the same requirements. We scratched one of our "needs" and found that it hasn't hindered or made less enjoyable for the 6 years we've been fulltime.

RE: Best Route from LaSalle, IL to Dawson Creek, B.C.

I suggest a copy of The Milepost Or if low on cash which is a little silly if you plan on a trip to Dawson Creek BC and on to Alaska, Google the route. Are you in a hurry or just want to meander along and see some other sites along the way. Maybe you want to add a couple Ca Provinces to your travel map or take a more western route through the states and hit the Badlands, Custer SP, and Little Bighorn?

RE: First time with the camper on the dually...amazed so far.

Congrats on the new truck. Tire pressure should be on the door/pillar sticker.

RE: Taking an RV to Alaska

The only bad section of the Alaska highway was between Destruction Bay and Beaver Creek. It was bad going up in May of 2015 and worse coming back down in late August. As far as flagged and unflagged frost heaves, your view from a pickup or MH, decent vision and following the speed limit you should have no problem. There were several areas of road construction on the Alaska road system that were more of a slowdown than a real problem.

RE: B&W 3400 Slider. Does it Clunk...work in Ram Puck system?

I'm not sure what the model is but I'm getting an 18K B/W Companion hitch installed in my 2014 2500 Ram tomorrow. They are using the single hole in the middle of the bed in conjunction with the support that runs under the bed. So, I have no rails or anything other than the single connection point in the middle of the bed. Is this single attachment point considered the "puck" system being talked about or is the puck system the 4 attachment points? I sure hope I don't end up with some annoying clunk considering this thing cost north of $2000 installed. The single attachment is the way it was before the truck manufactures started offering the puck system. I've had the single B&W attachment for close to 6 years and 50,000 miles towing without a problem.

RE: Canadian Travel

We have both passports and the passport auto cards, the card is convenient and easy to carry in your wallet. I think some of the replies to your post misunderstand what a Passport Card is.

RE: 4 lights stopped working

Thank you for that and it seems there is a problem in the fixture. I did find a blown fuse and replaced it but then blew the replacement when changing the bulb. Something the light fixture seems to be shorting it out so will look to see about a replacement fixture and see if that does solve the problem We had the same problem four 12 volt lights and bathroom fan not working. After a half dozen fuses it turned out to be the last light on the line and it was the bulb that was causing the short. New bulb and good to go.

RE: Towing capacity guide?

I agree, you should be able to get info online. Another idea, is go to some area dealerships and look at actual trucks. They will have door panel stickers with actual ratings for the given truck. IMO, you will need a 350/3500 SRW diesel, as a minimum. With nearly 40' length, a DRW would likely be the better tool. If you don't want DRW, look closely at SRW ratings, payload, axles, and max tire ratings. Jerry The problem with just checking the door stickers is that most dealer stock have the lower gvw. Dealers rather have flash on the floor to sell than utility.

RE: New to workamping, looking for tax advice

Your self employment tax won't be any different, in the long run better to both get credit for future SS benefits.

RE: Cooler Unit Replacement - New or Refurbished?

When mine went, there was no doubt in my mind; new unit. If I'm going to put in all that labor, I'm putting in a new unit. +1

RE: New 5th Wheel ------ Do I pay sales tax in Ohio???

We purchased our 5er in Kansas had to sign a waiver statement that the rig was NOT going to be registered in Kansas. Had to pay sales tax in Illinois before they would title it there.

RE: Core of Engineers camping

We've stayed at several USACE parks we're over 53' and usually don't unhook the TV. Most have been west of Mississippi but not all.

RE: Changing oil and engine idling after long trips?

Let see I pull in late in the afternoon, site is level, drop landing gear, hookup, have a cool one. Next morning, unhook, raise landing gear, start engine, buckle seat belt, idle out to highway and hit the road.
