RE: Pulling Power

He said it works for him, bet he never ran it across the scales.

RE: Dometic refrigerator issues

If the fridge is in good condition I would replace the cooling unit. I did on mine Dometic 2862, less than half the cost of new.

RE: First time 5er needs advice

As others have mentioned you will be limited by the F250 GVW. I assume you will get either a SC or CC and depending whether 2x4 or 4x4 the Truck gets heavy real quick. If you look at Ford tow ratings it may look like you have more than enough carrying capacity but you will go over the GVW. My '09' F350 CC DRW has a GVW of 13000 a rated 4094 capacity and GCWR of 23500 and maximum fifth wheel of 15200. The problem is the truck weighs 8900 with full fuel and me, 9300 with me DW and fifthwheel hitch. If you subtract loaded truck from GCWR of 23500 you wind up with 14200 or 1000 less than Ford max fifthwheel weigh. My suggestion is order yourself an F350 and get the max GVW package of 11400. If you ever upgrade your fiver you'll be happy you did.

RE: one night stops

If it's nose down I'll lower the landing legs but leave it hooked up. I can raise it a good 4 inches before it's off the hitch plate. If it's really low I can use my leveling boards under the truck or just move around the site sometimes works.

RE: Heating Trailer While Driving

What I do in either hot or cold weather is turn on the AC or the furnace without opening the slides while I'm hooking up water, sewer and other outside stuff.

RE: Missing VIN Number

Ours has the VIN stamped above the pin box, its a typical problem with all trailers the side VIN sticker fades out. If you contact the manufacturer they will probably send you a sticker. I have done it with my flat & box trailers. X2! Mine is stamped in the pin box. X3

RE: RV park in GA

High Falls State Park is about 40 miles south of Atlanta and just a few miles off the interstate.There are 2 campgrounds but the Riverside Campground is much better for large rigs.They have a choice of back ins of pull throughs. Water and electric and nice bath houses. This is our favorite stop on the way south and back north.

RE: Camp Host sites - typical size rigs that fit

We're 35 ft 5th wheel there are a few host sites we've found that we would not fit but on the other hand they usually are not FHU's so we don't bother with them anyway.

RE: May not want to swap tire sizes on that Ram just yet..

If just for the speedo get a cheap GPS that gives speed, ours is right on with our F350 but shows our Focus to be 2 MPH off at 60.

RE: Dog Crap

We always carry extra poo bags and offer them to those that don't have their own. That way if their excuse is they forget one they have one now.

RE: 110 volt water heater switch does no light.

I read somewhere because of the limited capacity RV water heaters are set at a higher temp. Easy fix mix cold with the hot to get lukewarm.

RE: question on cleaning old sealant before applying new

Get a caulk removal tool, remove old caulk, clean area with denatured alcohol, apply new caulk. Caulking over old caulk is like lipstick on a pig.

RE: (Lippert) Rear Electric Stabilizer

terrykidwell, My comment, "It's a throwaway world" was that these companies want us to buy a replacement instead of supplying repair parts.
