RE: From 5er to class A, why?

Once you get used to a big truck, it's really not that hard to find parking. I used to work downtown Detroit and parked the F250 there all the time. . first I don't care if you are comfortable driving a semi in downtown DC, San Juan, NYC, etc. I prefer something smaller my self. I am just pointing out to folks here to consider whether they will enjoy doing it if they haven't thought about that. I wouldn't enjoy it. bumpy I think your name should be grumpy. And for the record, Monster trucks are used in the entertainment industry, I know your old but try to keep up.

RE: Where to fill air in dually rear wheels?

Except the FLY J in Rapid City, SD. I was told by management to leave along with 4 other RV's. They said the place was privately owned and the owner did not want RV's on the property. I asked if this was a change in policy for FLY J. He said no. Just this one. This employee actually drove a pick up out to my rig and the others to tell us to leave. I had just filled my tank at there pump about 20 minutes earlier. This happened in July of this year. I have had a FLY J RV card for over 20 years. As a life member of Good Sam I can charge fuel at the pump while getting 8 cents off the cash price of diesel. I go there a lot. You can get access to an air chuck at the semi islands. They may have an air chuck at the RV islands also. I have more experience with the semi islands.

RE: From 5er to class A, why?

I have never seen a monster truck pulling a FW. I think it would sit way to high to even hitch up. Also they are not street legal in my state. I have had 4MH and now have a FW. They both will work fine. You have to figure out how you travel. They both have good and bad. Figure out what is important to you and take the one that is better in those areas.

RE: Host Mammoth, any bad experiences?

Well, my LP alarm went off a few times and I didn't think it should. They sent me another one after I called them. problem solved. I had my awning out a few feet and it would not go back. Long story short, it was not getting power. I checked manual, this event was foreseen. I followed instructions. I pulled the 2 wire disconnects and hooked them to my truck battery with extra wire. Plus and minus, one way powers it out and other way powers it in. Simple. Host has told me twice to take it wherever I want and they will pay the bill. I don't trust my local RV place. I will do it myself. I just need to run a new power line to the switch. They have been very helpful. Have sent me pics and diagrams of electrical.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Just ordered my shut off valve for the shower.....

RE: Where to fill air in dually rear wheels?

The air at fly J is indeed in the semi truck fuel lanes. I would go thru there with my gas class A and fill with water. You will not have a problem with your truck in there.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Although Host does not supply a shower head with a shut off valve on their newer models, we bought a brass, nickel-plated shut off valve from Amazon for about $9. It took only a few minutes to install between the flex hose and the shower head. Our first Mammoth was factory-equipped by Host with a shut-off. We were surprised that the 2017 model wasn't so equipped. Regardless, it was a very good $9 investment...... Don't buy the one at Home Depot. If you don't use it for a few weeks, it will corrode internally and seize up. Bought the one on amazon that has a thumb lever and works great. Good to know, thanks.

RE: Mammoth ordered! And now in production!

We're definitely forming a Mammoth group on this forum. I wonder if we can get these Mammoths together sometime? I may be making a 5800 mile round trip to NC next Spring which will burn most of my vacation time early in the year. Im in west pa if you want to stop for a night. I have free full hookups for you. Also a nice local micro brew if your interested.

RE: National Eagle Cap dealer list? Don't ask manufactuer :/

Why waste money on a dealer? Buy used, save a ton, and move on. Why pay depreciation.... Because I am not willing to spend that much without it being what exactly what I want... This, I order everything so I get exactly what I want. I am amazed when people buy a car or truck on the spot, off of a lot. I don't mind waiting a year to get what I want. Out of state, you bet. I live in west Pa. I flew to CA to buy my Tiffin Zephyr DP. Drove it home, great time. I went to IA to buy my 40' DP. I went to MI to buy my AF TC. Ordered my Host from NC, he was the closest dealer although TC warehouse was about the same and we also drove up there and looked. He didn't want to deal. A road trip to buy something is just plain fun. Host lists all there dealers on there web site. I think I talked to most of them when I was looking to order one.

RE: Host Mammoth camper

Coincidentally Randall from Host just called. We should be picking up on Monday. Congrats.................. I ordered mine with the 9k AC. I had no issues running it with a single 2k honda genset Now that I installed my 6 6volt batts and a 4k PSW inverter. It runs with no issues with or without the genset. My inverter is wired to run the entire camper. It is also a smart 3 stage charger. I leave my fridge on LP all the time, although I did test it and it runs just fine off the inverter. If we were plugged in for a few days I would change it back to electric, but we don't do that very often. Enjoy your new TC, they are nice............

RE: Host Mammoth camper

Wait, you're planning on running your A/C on a 3000-watt inverter? Where will the inverter get all that power? LiFePo4 battery bank with 600 usable Ah. May increase from there if needed. Plenty of room in the basement. Are those 12v batts. How many will you use?

RE: 2019 Arctic Fox 1150 deposit made

I've always like the AF 1150 dry bath. The 1150 is an old model that's been around for a long time. In 2005 we almost bought one but instead opted for the Eagle Cap 1150 (now discontinued) which was lighter in weight. Do you know what the newest 1150 will weigh? I'm sure close to the 5k or 5,500 fully loaded up for camping. Our current setup is hard to keep under the 14k GVW of the truck. But always under the axle ratings.... But note my truck has 85 gallons of diesel under the bed if fully topped off thanks to Titan Tanks. Titan has a 85 gal replacement tank?? awesome...I want one.
