RE: Did I just buy a 5th wheel?!?!?! What did I get into?

Why is my truck not enough? Unloaded its 8300. Hitch weight is 1300. Last time I weighed our gear we were under 1000lbs. advertised pin weight is 1300# DRY... ADD your 1000# = 2300# . . Noe add your hitch #, and your family . . NOW look on your door sticker and see what your allowable payload is?

RE: Grand Design Support Disappointing

Ok , IK you only had the trailer for 2 weeks , HOW did you-- "communicated 18 times, for over a month with three different head office service personnel, including two regional service mangers (Tippett, DeWayne). I was ignored" .. With that said, glad the dealer got you fixed or figured out.. I believe this may be the first cad report I heard about GD ??

RE: I-95 Fredericksburg to DCA tolls?

None, so long as you use the regular right lanes on I-95/I-395. Express Lanes in the middle require EZPass. DC area highways, typically referred to as DMV, tends to be traffic prone through-out the day, among the worst in the country. STAY OUT of the EZ Pass/Express lanes.. they have restrictions, such as 2 axle vehicles only... I found this out the hard way 2 years ago... $211.00 later and I will never tow my trailer in those lanes again.. Yes, I learnt my lesson.. Yet as I was on the side of the lanes pleading my worthless case with the LEO, no less than 3 or 4 commercial tractor trailers and or trucks and boats passed me going ways...

RE: Harbor Freight/Honda smackdown....

MY concern would be hat ANYTHING that I , or someone I know buys from HF that is NOT a hand tool breaks shortly after purchasing.. They are great for gloves, wrenches, hammers, ect... but for me, I would be hesitant . . That's just me,based on my experience.. But if a few folks got them and they worked as advertised, GREAT ! !

RE: Verizon VM skip/delete message

Before I try digging through the Verizon support on this, I thought I'd ask here. Google isn't cooperating either. When I know the VM is spam, and I don't want to listen to 2 minutes of ****, I'd like to simply jump to the end where I can then press 7 to delete. All I know now is to push 6 a bunch of times to speed it up. That's not real fast. I am guessing you don't have a IPhone . . . With that, you have a choice to delete without listening at all... just slide it sideways, and hit delete..

RE: Electric over hydraulic brakes

Our 2016 has setting for Elec and Elec over Hyd. and low med high braking effort as well as the 0-10 If you have 3 axles with Dexter disc (large pistons) brakes a second or larger pump maybe needed. Also check to see if the brake were bled properly. ^^^ What they said ^^^ Our "15" has 2 separate settings in the dash menu . . . 1 is for Electric . . or Electric/Hydraulic 1 is for brake intensity . low-Medium-High then there is the 0-9 on the on board controller . . I have my settings at: Electric/Hydraulic - MEDIUM - 6.5

RE: Jayco ceiling fan

I have an ONBOARD 1000 watt pure Sine Wave Inverter that is just for the Fridge.. It only runs 1 outlet, and gets it's power from the battery bank. I have a feeling that you may be confusing what I have, with a portable inverter/Generator like the Yamaha, or Honda EU2000. The kind you set on the ground, start, and plug your camper into??

RE: Jayco ceiling fan

My onboard inverter ONLY powers the residential fridge.. IF your talking about plugging into an inverter/genny, like a Honda EU2000, then it should work just fine.. Mine did. The ceiling fan should only work of AC power..

RE: Level Up Auto Hitch

In week three of the 201 course on the level up system they cover things like this. AND I still have to keep a cheat sheet next to the control panel. Maybe after the 301 course this fall when we head South I will do better. BTW the same courses apply to the systems on all brands of 5th wheel trailers with the Level Up System. Enroll now. Chris Chris, what are these courses? they sound like something that would benefit a bunch of people

RE: Level Up Auto Hitch

On my 6 point system, the front landing gear goes up AND the rear legs move to compensate, so when ready all 6 legs are still on the ground..

RE: need ideas for strange problem

The photo of the red/black/yellow snake looks like a King Snake that eats other snakes. If you can find on put it in the FW to eat the rattlesnake. I believe it's a Tx coral snake. Red meets yellow = dead fellow. . . red meets black - man will be back . ..
