RE: Dogs in TT's

Well, to be legal but not popular here, you could get a 5th wheel toy hauler, cameras with sound, and set it up to run the AC with a gen while going down the road. Even have a remote temp gauge in there. It is legal for a human to ride in a 5th wheel if there is communication to the cab in calif. The Saints could travel in crates, strapped to the floor in the cooled toy area. I've seen that type of setup at shows, not sure they rode back there on the road. Plan B is a class A motor home towing a Jeep Unlimited Rubicon. Guess which plan I like the best.

RE: New Trailer Hitch

I have the same old round bar Draw-tite with one friction sway and 1000 lb bars. The holes the bars go into are getting a little egg shaped but have had no issues. I have a 250RDSW OutdoorsRV, 31 ft, and a Ram 2500 diesel. I am thinking about the Blue-ox but just cant see how the sway control really works and I have watched all the video's. Really not interested in the Hensley or PP. I have yet to hear anything bad about the Blue-ox.

RE: Pomona RV Shows, April vs October

The problem is the show rules. It is a Mfg show with Mfg reps there. In order for a Mfg to be there they have to be there with a dealer. It costs $$$ for the spot and more $$$ to get the RV's there. Plus having people there. It's a matter of who pays, the dealers or the Mfg's. Some Mfg's have few if any dealers in the So Cal area, ie OutdoorsRV and Northwood Mfg were not at the big Oct show for those reasons.

RE: Dogs in TT's

I found that heat was a big problem back there for the pups. It's hard to get AC back there when it's hot. I would have a remote temp gauge back there. If your dogs get stressed and hot, you've got a big problem. The noise level is also high. I have a Bed-rug in mine. You should have gotten a Megga-cab.

RE: Dogs in TT's

Congrats Dvitale300, Showing a Saint is not easy. I have a show Bernese and he travels with me in the cab of my new Ram Laramie, fold flat floor in the rear. I would not travel with him in the TT because I need someone to talk to on the long drives. Not being able to lower the tailgate is also a bummer. Is there room to move the tanks back and then move the tongue jack back enough to clear the tailgate? Might need to do some welding to make it work. Think outside the box. How close is it to clearing? To help with the dog hair some I cover the entire back seat area with a sheet and take a few along on longer trips. Use the dog blower to blow out the truck. If you have too much dog for the cab you'll just have to get a class A MH like all the big dogs at the shows. Do you have your X-pens mounted on the back bumper yet?

RE: Hemi 6.4

If you want to know about the 6.4 vs the Cummins, there is a thread with lots of info about the 6.4 on the Cummins Diesel Forum. I have the 2014 Cummins and love it but the 6.4 hemi would work for me. I would go with the 4.10's for sure. I have herd they have less issues where the temps get <0 deg than the diesel. I tow 31 ft TT and about 7500 pounds. I get 12-13 towing and 21 bare on the hwy. Only get the diesel if you want or need the power cuz it does not pencil out in savings. The jury is still out on the resale values.

RE: Proposed law affecting rv'er'sz in Canada

Just like most of the US, Canada is a nice place to visit but I would not want to live there.

RE: Tesla device

If you have a "smart meter" on your house, look for the meter reads on the bill. Gone. Only shows usage in KWH. Thats because the meter does not transmit a read, only usage in the form of data.

Highway 4x4 03/22/15 06:30pm Travel Trailers

I have a Wind River, one step down, same mfg. Outdoors RV is a cousin of Arctic Fox and is a great unit. There is going to be a Mfg rally in Oregon this summer and is talked about in length on IRV2 in the TT section that is dominated by ORV people. You'll see me there. Bottom line, it's a top line, well built, and really great looking trailer that will last for years. Lots of room in that unit, interior is the best. If you buy it and don't like it, I'll trade ya straight across. what dealer are you using?

RE: Wheel Bearing Question

A bearing buddy is a spring loaded device that puts the greese to the front bearing first and then out the back. There is usually no brakes on a small boat trailer. The EZ lube puts the grease to the rear bearing first then out the front. Dexter said do not use the power grease guns on them. Yes if the rear seal leaks, big problems. The Dexter Never Lube bearing are good for 100K or 5 years so why are the EZ lubes have to be inspected and repacked every year? Don't get me started on that Never Lube bearing, not a good system as the inner and outer bearings are next to each other and they have to be pressed out and in. EZ lube is better and stronger. Catching a bad bearing on the yearly inspection is rare as when they go bad, the go quick and just eat everythig up quick. That's why I have a TPMS system that also tells me the temp. Just one more hope of catching it before it turns the dust. My TT is a year old with < 10K miles on it so a pump or two this year then a tear-down next year. I really think under normal conditions the bearings should go for 3-4 years easy.

RE: Hint and vent to guy laying in the road

We all are missing the most important point. Where was that flat tire that could cost lives made? Another IED made in China?

RE: Hint and vent to guy laying in the road

If he did become a splat, at least he would go out doing what he loved, being on vacation with his RV.

RE: Tesla device

Electric meters are my life and I can tell you that if you have a "Smart Meter" on your house, playing games with the power Co is over for you. What that meter can tell the power co is really everything. Stealing power is really serious and it can cost you big time. If you have a fire, count on your ins co to look into it. As far as reactive power goes, residential single phase has little affect on the bill, big 3 phase it does. The killer for us domestic rate people will be when TOU (time of use) hits us. I know, this is TMI.

RE: Blue Ox Sway Pro

I really like the Blue ox system and as soon as my old round bar and friction sway is worn out, only 12 years old, that's the one I am getting.

RE: Camping World Quality

Don't look at a purchase as "buying" something. You are just renting it till it breaks. Time for us all to "drink the cool-aid" and join the disposable society. If you fix it, you're slowing down the economy.

RE: Traveling With the Propane On

At 63, 6 ft 0, 165 pounds, I eat ice cream, pizza, cookies, and all the garbage I did in high school. I take it on vacation and don't want it to spoil so I run with the fridge on. Yep, it's going to kill me some day.

RE: Traveling With the Propane On

in an accident, if something ruptures the tank, it's all over. Valve on or off.

RE: Advice on driving Oregon's coast road?

Fort Stevens is so nice I could stay there for a week.

RE: Traveling With the Propane On

Unless you want the inside of your fridge the same as it is outside, you have the propane on.
