RE: Fleetwood Bounder engine troubles - need advice please

I lost a tranny in FL once, 454 and 4L80E tranny I think. I lost the engine in that one also. Put in a new long block in my back yard. Might as well go over the tranny at this point.

RE: Better TC hauler- F350 or F450??

It is very easy to order a new 3500 RAM 4x4 cummins that can carry 5k plus pounds and still be under the 14K GVW with 2 people in the cab. It is a matter of ordering the right truck. Many people are carrying triple slide TC on 3500 trucks. Some are over there GVW and some are not. Everybody is different. It can and is being done.

RE: Better TC hauler- F350 or F450??

My understanding is that the 450 is designed to pull a lot more weight not carry it. I think the 450 goes after the large 5th wheel crowd.

RE: Florida to Yellowstone 2017

I have been to YS 7 times from west PA. It's 2k miles for me 1 way. First time was in a 1982 class c at 60mph. We did the whole trip in 9 days when our oldest kid was 2(now23 in grad school) It can be done. Sounds like your used to long distance driving. Don't let the retired people get you down, they have all the time in the world. We will to, someday. Go for it. A lot of good stuff out there, Bad Lands, Wall Drug, Tetons etc. When I'm just driving, I stay in rest areas, pull in about 10pm and leave at 5am. A lot less traffic early in the morning. Sometimes when I'm excited and can't sleep I get up at 3am and drive. Your going to have a great time.

RE: Class C motorhomes, Do they all leak?

We've been looking for a used Class C motorhome. Every one that we've inspected, has had visible signs of water leakage/damage specially over the cab area. Can't manufacturers find a way to build these without having leakage issues? Frustrating! No......................

RE: TC + extended hitch

No need to remove factory hitch, get the D1104 Torklift hitch This is correct. The super hitch works WITH your factory hitch. NOT complicated at all. Buy quality once and never worry about it.

RE: eagle cap versus host

I think it depends on how you pack etc. My 2016 RAM has a 14K GVW. Both axles add up to 15750K. The tires are above that. But even at 14K with my wife and I in the truck with full fuel we have a payload of 5700lbs. I agree that if you pack heavy with one of these big campers you will be over 5700. Of course you could make the truck a new 2016 reg cab, 2wd, gasser and now your payload just went up to around 7K Just some thoughts.

RE: How much truck do I need for a 23K 5th wheel?

RAMs also have an awesome exhaust brake. It works VERY well. I often don't even touch the service brakes on mountain descents in the rockies.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

I tried to get a charter in Homer. The captain said " The weather is pretty rough out there, I don't recommend it"

RE: Used RV Help

Even if you buy brand new, you WILL be taking it back to the dealer many times to fix many things. This is very common in the RV industry. Or you fix these items yourself. Better to buy a used one where all the nit noid things have been done.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

We are sort of circling the kenai now. Spent two nights in Valdez. A night in Kenai. Now coming out of our third night in Seward. Heading to homer today, then Ninilchik before pressing on to Denali. This "gravel lot camping" in AK takes some getting used to. I don't think we've ever vacuumed the MH so much. However, the waterfront RV park in Seward is great! Thanks for the update. Your going to love Homer. I thought the spit was great and the whole town was very nice. My wife and I said we could live there. All the eagles are fun also. Got some great pics.
