RE: TX RV and trailer owners are in trouble.

North Carolina has long required inspection of trailers with GWR of 4000 lbs or greater. Every couple of years, our state legislature introduces a bill to repeal the inspection requirements. I think vehicle inspection requirement is a good idea. According the AAA, "In states that still have the mandated inspections, as opposed to those that don't, accidents are about 27 percent less," In NC, I don't see how one can argue that the inspection requirement is a state money grab. The state get $0.85 for a vehicle inspection; the inspection station receives $12.75. The state's 85¢ is distributed as follows: 55¢ to highway fund, 18¢ to Volunteer Rescue/EMS Fund, 12¢ to Rescue Squad Workers' Relief Fund. There is a different fee structure if an emission test is required but, in NC, motorhomes (and trailers, of course) are exempt from the emission requirement. Tom I have lived in North Carolina for over 40 years and never had a trailer inspected. I wouldn't even know where to take a trailer to have it inspected. :hTo my knowledge, there is no state requirement for trailer inspections in NC.

RE: 5" or 7" GPS display

Thank you so much for all of the helpful replies. This forum is a great place to get information from those who know what they are talking about. Keep the replies coming. I'm sue that others are wrestling with this decision. Bill

5" or 7" GPS display

I tow a 5ver with a RAM 2500. I like the features of the Garmin RV RV760 GPS but I don't know if the 7" display will block my vision too much. The Rand McNally is my second choice since they offer a 5" screen. What are the thoughts of those who are driving a pickup.

RE: Valterra Dominator Sewer Hoses - are they worth the money?

I used the Rhinoflex hose for five years with no hose problems. The problem I had was with the gaskets splitting. I have now had the Dominator hose for two years with no problems at all. I'm going to stay with the Dominator. Bill

RE: Cable driven slideouts mechanism

Thank you to all who replied to my question. I feel much better about the cable slide system having heard about your experience with them. It seems that some issues do pop up as with anything mechanical. But overall, these systems appear to have improved greatly over time. Thanks again. Happy travels. Bill

RE: Cable driven slideouts mechanism

Thanks for the input, Paul. That is exactly what I was afraid might happen. I have heard of this before but the salesman I spoke with indicated this was a problem that's been successfully addressed. Let's see what other have to say.

Cable driven slideouts mechanism

I am considering the purchase of a Montana High Country with the cable drive slideouts. I would like some feedback from owners who have experience with these systems. Are they as reliable as the salesman says? This is the only thing about this brand that gives me pause. Thanks for any feedback you have to offer. Bill Borst

RE: Pros & Cons: Humidity Switch for a Fantastic Fan?

Check out the Air King DH55 de humidistat from Amazon.com. It is less than $20 and does not use any power. It is just a switch that closes if the relative humidity goes above the set point. Then opens when it falls below the set point. Mope this helps.

RE: Have you had new carpet put in your 5th wheel?

We had our carpet replaced last year in the down stairs area and the steps. We had it done by a local flooring company. They did the slideouts also. It turned out great and less expensive than I thought it would be.

RE: Which exhaust brake would you recommend

The PacBrake kit does include a 12 volt air compressor. As I recall I paid about $1200 for the kit and my son and I installed it ourselves in about a day. This was money and time well spent if ou are going to be towing in mountains or over hilly country. I also installed a set of air horns at the same time since I had air available. You also get a kit to mount an air coupling o you truck to inflate tires, beach balls, air mattresses, etc. This also came in handy.

RE: Which exhaust brake would you recommend

I just completed a 3800 mile trip pulling my 1200 pound camper with the PacBrake Exhaust Brake. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! We went through the Ozark Mountains in Missouri and never had to use the service brakes while traveling the interstate. The exhaust brake did a fantastic job maintaining my cruise setting going down hill. I would HIGHLY recommend this device to anyone who tows a heavy trailer. It was money well spent. :B
