RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

We like the table a lot. If you make sure all 3 locks are on tight it will really tighten the table up. It feels much looser when they are undone and the table slides around. The double couch with the high/low table was a must have option for us.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

That was one of the reasons I didn't order the tray. I had 2 of them in my Zephyr DP and didn't really like them so I took them out. I find I have more space to use with out it and in the mammoth, less weight. I will be adding some of my own mods that are heavy. 6 6 volt batts and a 4k pure sine wave inverter.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

The fireplace has a high and low setting. All electric. You can just turn it on , high or low, or you can set a thermostat to a certain temp. You can also set it to run for so long. It also has a remote that controls all of this. It does heat the living area and the bed room. It does take a little longer for the heat to get to the bedroom though. We love it. Sounds like there are 2 more of these coming. Can't wait to see pics of both. CONGRATS

RE: Air bag wireless air compressors

I had wireless on my 2011. I used it once and then sold the truck. I really liked having them. I removed it from the truck thinking I would put it on my new one. I got factory air on the new Ram so now the wireless kit is for sale cheap.

RE: Stealth Camping or Layovering

The phone call to the police is going to start like this..................Creepy homeless guy living in van is outside my house, my wife and kids are scared................When over nighting some where on the road, just stay at a rest area. They are built for this purpose with tax payer dollars. Stop, park, sleep, get up and go. I have done it 100's of times. I can't understand why anyone would stay any where else. To each his own

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

The ones at the RV show came rolled up in a box. Unrolled easy and were very comfortable. I don't remember the name but they were about $500 each. They were very easy to move around. I laid on one for about 10 minutes much to my wifes chagrin.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Looks like a thin mattress they give with the Host. How was it for sleeping comfort? Going to add a memory foam topper? You guys really notice details. I thought it was great but my wife said maybe a topper or maybe a new mattress like the ones we saw at the Hershey RV show. We would then move it back and forth from the TC to 5th wheel. I believe the same size bed is in both.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

It's great that you guys are taking the time to basically do a tutorial of how everything works. From weights to slides and all that. Thank you. Your very welcome, I also appreciate the help here, including bedlam getting all the pics up. I have had a lot of questions answered here over the years.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Curious as to what the COG is on that unit. I really thought your Ram would squat, a lot, w/that big house on there!! Any real world weights yet? Thanks! Not exactly sure where the COG is but the water and gray tanks are in basement all the way up front. I weighed it basically empty,little water and 1/2 propane, truck full fuel and 2 people. 13660 front axle 5150 back 8510. I suspect with the water full the front weight will go up. My Gross axle ratings are Ft 6k and rear 9750. My stock tire ratings are higher than that with the 2 in the front and the 4 in the rear. I also have a 20K TL super hitch on it. Not sure I will tow anything, maybe flat tow a jeep. I measured and a 36 inch stinger will work great.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

How is the before and after height with your air assist? Maybe an inch or so of squat after it levels off? Looks great by the way! Thank you, we love it. With the air assist you have 2 heights you can adjust to. Reg and alternative. Reg def sits high in the back, so I run alt all the time. It rides basically level in that mode. After i load the TC it does settle an inch or 2, but then the air kicks in and brings it up to normal so it rides level. Very little sway etc.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

The entrance door is a little narrow compared to others, I noticed that myself. I will try to get pics inside and with bedlams help get them posted. The truck is bone stock. Rubber mat in bed. Thinking about a Backstop bumper and a back up camera. Truck handles it fine, way more power than I need, but I like it. 900 lb feet of torque. Exhaust brake works AWESOME and is even better when the ASIN tranny is in tow haul mode.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I will be putting 4 6 volt batts in the gen compartment and 2 6 volts in the batt compartment. The 4k inverter will go in the main basement. It has a auto transfer switch built in so the 120 volt will run thru it. It is a pure sine wave and will run the whole coach. I will still carry one of the Hondas for hours of use with the AC or FP. I've mentioned it before, but I wish Host would relocate the exterior shower to a non-electrical bay or dedicated cutout. Also, I found having a quick disconnect at the shower is much handier than a fixed hose. I agree, in another compartment would be best. The hose on mine was hand tight so I already un screwed it and took it off. I will carry it if I need it. I will just screw it back on. I took that panel off to look at the incoming 120v line. There is room under there to make the compartment taller, but it would be close as to whether you could get a Honda in there or not, prob be easier to extend the bottom down a few inches. Have I mentioned how quick the slides are. All 3 slides can be opened or closed in about 9 or 10 seconds. Doing 1 at a time. Way quicker than any MH I ever had.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Bedlam, is this leather or ultra leather? ultra leather on both. Yes it has AC, just didn't get it in the pics.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I was also crawling around in the basement and this TC came with a auto transfer switch already. I do not know why. Because the inverter has one I will be removing it.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Spare cash, My wife takes care of that. I took the pic of the Honda because I got more than a few questions on whether it would fit there or not. It wouldn't without mods. It fits fine in the huge basement. I took a few panels out or off because I was checking on where I would run wires for the TV's and inverter. I will be putting 4 6 volt batts in the gen compartment and 2 6 volts in the batt compartment. The 4k inverter will go in the main basement. It has a auto transfer switch built in so the 120 volt will run thru it. It is a pure sine wave and will run the whole coach. I will still carry one of the Hondas for hours of use with the AC or FP. Thank you for posting the pics, I lack certain skills. I also like the comments you added to the pics. The dealership gave me the TL add ons because my FG would not reach. I bought those a few years ago.
