RE: KYB Mono Max Shocks

For those of you that liked KYB's, what did you like? Better handling in corners, more stability, how about ride comfort over those expansion joints? Would like to hear your thoughts. Thanks, Stu *** AND TO ADD **** If buying again, would it be the KYB's or Bilstein's ??

RE: I bought a 2017...but its actually a 2016

I purchased my fifth wheel in July of 2015 . .It was labeled as a 2016.. I NEW there would be updates coming in September, buy I choose to not wait. Most of the manufacturers will roll out CHANGES that correspond with the big Hershey show. I knew that ,and do not feel taken advantage of.

RE: Trailer Weight vs Truck Capacity (I know, I know....)

Just look at the PAYLOAD capacities of each truck.... You will see that what you can carry in the 150 is much less than the 250.. That is what will limit your trailering capabilities . .

RE: New 5th Wheel & New Truck - Running nose high - UGH!!

As stated, the Sub frame " BOXING" is very common.. In fact, when you to go Morryde and have the IS installed that's the first measurement they take. At that point, they create a sub frame to allow the trailer to tow level... mine is a 2" high sub frame..

Thanks Bpounds, was looking at the bottom version, maybe on steroids.. I have a 3' x 5' flag that I want to be above my roof line... not sure if those will be beefy enough?

Flag pole mounts for the pinbox

I am looking to fly my flag from my pinbox and am looking for a mount. It looks like I may have to fabricate one myself, before I do I want to see and here what you all are using.. I did a search but was only able to find a very few threads on the subject, with 1 possibility .. Joe

RE: GM pickups, no 2500HD or 3500 Markings????

The problem I see is kicking tires on the dealers lot. One does not know which tires to kick, therefore you have to enlist a sales person, who may or may not know the there are 2500HD and 3500 SRW trucks. And ask stupid questions like why do you want a 3500, I have all these 2500HD according to my inventory sheet. Chris I love Truck shopping on a Sunday ! Nobody to bother me.. Once I have ALL my info, I then start talking

RE: Propane smell when furnace is running - Suburban SF-30F

You said the trailer is only ABOUT a year old. . . Find out how old, and IF your the original owner you may be able to get it replaced under warranty if it needs to be... Call the dealer, or manufacturer. Don't mess with possible propane leak, or smell

RE: Suspension upgrade

Well I am not a mechanic, but have been running the Firestones on the rear of my F 250's for eons. Last one was a 99, this one is a 12. Nary a problem. BTW, don't ya feel better after being jumped on by the weight police? :B Not necessarily the weight police, more along the lines of knowing what your truck's limitations are. I think most would agree that is somewhat important... I tow a large fifth wheel with my "15" SRW, so I and NOT in the weight police, but I do know all my weights and that I am within all of them... some just barely, but in.... And back to the OP... I run an airlift system ( set to 30#) on mine to level it out with zero issues... some really like timbres, some like stable loads... knowing where you need to be Is half the battle

RE: Suspension upgrade

The FIRST thing I would do is run over a scale.... depending on what size fifth wheel you are probably over on your ratings.. the 250's are rated to TOW a lot, buy NOT rated to haul (payload in bed of truck) nearly enough to handle a larger fifth wheel, and the pin weights they have. Tell us what make and model fifth wheel you are towing, perhaps someone here has the same set up and can toss in their thoughts.. ADDING air bags will only raise the truck to level... it WILLNOT add payload capacity,thus making stay over weight if there to start.

RE: Central Pennsylvania to Disney's Fort Wilderness

From Lewisburg , I would go : 81 south into southern VA , than hop onto 77 south.. Take 77 south into NC, either go around Charlotte ( 485 ), or straight down the middle depending on your timing.. cross into SC, Stay on 77 towards Columbia SC.. Hop onto 26 east.. Follow 26 East towards Charleston, and hop onto 95.. stay on 95 through GA.. into FLA.. again, depending on the time of day, either go directly through Jacksonville, or around 295.. take 95 S to 4 West to Disney - - Once in Florida, you could either take 295-10-301-75-to the FL turnpike and miss Orlando, but I never go that way except for once.. Huge hassle , in my opinion, not to mention a GREATER risk of speeding tickets...

Big Rig Camping in the Florida Keys

We have been to the keys a few times, last year we stayed at Point of View in Key Largo ,and 2 years ago it was Blue Water Key down in Key West.. We want to return this summer and DW wants to try something different, we have a list of BIG RIG friendly places there, but cannot find it. Each of our trips, we have driven through a few and wrote notes on the sites... We were surprised at just how small some of the sites were.. So, that leaves me to the pro's here . . We are looking for 50amp - full hook up - that will have ample room for a 42' fifth wheel with 4 slides and 2 awnings ( so it should be wide also) .. Jolly Rodger ?? Geiger Key ??

RE: Dining plan or not at Disney

***** JUST A LITTLE TIP ****** We never buy water in the parks . . . just go to any place that sells fountain soda and ask for a CUP of ice water.... They are not allowed to say NO, or charge you. . . some will give you small 10oz -12oz cups, some larger.. we did not believe that either , until we tried it, been doing it that way ever since

RE: Dining plan or not at Disney

We have been visiting the Fort almost every year for the past 25 years or so and have never had the dining plan. To Us , the plan works for those that have no means of cooking, or taking food of any type in and storing it. We usually will visit either Sams Club, or Costco and stock up for the trip once there. We will plan a few meals out each trip, with usually a breakfast at the Fort, and a couple dinners at one or 2 of the hotels, but the rest is at the camper.. For those that like fried chicken, we found that the take out down at Crockets tavern can't be beat ! We enjoy either taking it down to the beach and eating, or at the table back at the site.
