RE: Let's talk about Lifeline Batteries

OP here , I ordered the 2 Lifeline GPL-31XT batteries yesterday.. Said it would be about a week , and after tax ,I am just shy of $330.00 ea. Spoke to the good folks at Lifeline, AND at Magnum were Lifeline has a great reputation.. Between all the folks on here , the guy I know at the bat store , and magnum ,nobody could state a good case why NOT to buy them other than the cost.. Looking at the cost , compared to other BETTER group 31 agm's , they are in the same price range.. or close Thanks for all the info

RE: Disney (FL) campgrounds???

There is also Tropical Palms located by Old Town only a short drive to Disney and a favorable choice for many after Fort Wilderness. But keep checking the Fort as people cancel. X2 on Tropical Palms... we have stayed there a few times when the Fort was all full . . . Would stay there again if we can't get the fort..

RE: Towing with a company truck?

I used my company truck ( F-350 ) for many years while towing , I decided to put that truck in my own name for liability reasons... In the event of a catastrophic issue , I did not want any links back to the business..

RE: Good installer for Disc Brakes ?

Nice. I decided I'm going to be ordering from him and doing a DIY install. Just need to run down to the storage lot and find if I have 1/2" or 9/16" studs and then I'll get them ordered. You will not be disappointed !! As far as a DIY job , as long as you have the basic skills and knowledge , along with a decent driveway or area to do it , you will be fine... the job is straight forward , I did not do mine , but I also had several reasons , medical and time that did not allow me to do so.. Fire up YouTube . . . There are a ton of install videos on there , watch one or 2... Keep the iPad/laptop close while doing the job for reference . .

RE: Good installer for Disc Brakes ?

Titan is the Hydraulic pump assembly, Kodiak are the calipers and rotors. No, Titan makes calipers and rotors as well. ***Link Removed*** We're looking at the Titan Premier 13" and the Kodiak 13" E-Coats. Edit: apparently I'm not allowed to post links, but you can search for TT12015_BrakeCatalog_F_Reduced.pdf to see what Titan offers. The Titan and Kodiak parts are completely interchangeable... ,, The Titan PUMP is supposed to be the fastest reacting , with no lag... I went with the Titan kit because of Ron and thier installation... They make it easy.. I just had the MORRyde IS installed , while driving back from Indiana , I developed a lot of brake dust and heat on 1 wheel.... Ron sent his installers to my house in PA , turns out I needed a spacer on the IS ... MorRyde should have seen this...

Let's talk about Lifeline Batteries

Looking to swap out the 2 group 31 deep cells for 2 new group 31 AGM's . . The name Lifeline came up, and I am looking at them.... Are they worth the extra $$$ ??? I see they also carry a 5 year warranty, that says a lot about them... Who uses them ? Would you do it again ? There is a place near me that has a special right now , $300 ea.... Joe

RE: from Eastern PA to Burlington VT

That route is the 'truck route' up the western side of Vermont. Even though it's single lane paved roads, you should be fine. Just keep an eye out for low clearances. Will DO . thx

RE: from Eastern PA to Burlington VT

I've driven that basic route (well, at least the part from Albany north) many, many times. You'll have no problems. You will get the opportunity to help refill the NY state highway fund coffers on I-87 south of Albany. I-81 to I-88 has no tolls and may be preferable for that reason. There are a couple of good gas stations/small truck stops on 22A just south of route 4 that usually have pretty good prices (at least for gasoline; I don't have any reason to pay attention to diesel prices). If you're thinking of staying in a campground and don't have reservations, I'd suggest making them as soon as possible. There isn't a whole lot available too close to UVM (North Beach is probably the closest), and I suspect it's a fairly popular time of year to be camping just before schools start up again. Thanks , we made reservations back in the spring... Was looking on street view and saw the stations at 22A... they are truck stops and will do just fine. Thanks for the responses...

RE: Best Non-Pet Loop at Fort Wilderness

Our first trip, we stayed in the 209. 100 and 200 loops are cool but that was when we had our TT. Larger units would probably be really difficult to get in there. Second trip, we were in 533. The 500 loop is beside the 1400 loop and can handle larger rigs better. What does everyone think about those loops on the other side of the road? 700-1100 loops? We're heading back down there this December. Its been a long time since we were there last. The 700 loop is our all time favorite.... large sites , close to the water , and not far from the middle store and bus stop . . . Plus there are no tight turns inside it , makes wheeling around a larger fifth wheel or class A easier . .

RE: TrailAir TriGlide

I just replaced my Tri Glide with the new Flex Air... I had some clunking , I have greased all " 9 " grease zerks, and still had it... Over on the Redwood forum, we had a guy with a complete failure, those were the early warning signs. I did not want to be like him , so before issues started, I just sucked it up, and purchased the Flex Air... Like stated. , the Triglide is no longer in production, BUT, there are a lot still made, and on standby for installation on new builds... Once they are gone, that will be the end of them. By th way , the Flex Air is so much smoother than the Triglide!!!

RE: 30 amp with a/c units?

Can we run both a/c units (15 &13.5) on 30 power? It is 100 degres where we're at and one a/c is barely keeping up. I may be wrong , but I say No.. You would need 50 amps..

RE: 2016-17 Cedar Creek RE

I own a CC, not just say this because of that, but I heard a couple other mgr's had some fading cap issues also Every manufacturer that uses color infused gelcoat has fading issues... No matter how high of a price they carry . . . By no means is it only a CC issue... My last fiver ( KZ ) had it... I see a ton of trailers, and fivers that just look bad with the top fade...

RE: Need a 5er hitch that'll work with the TC

You have my same truck... I have the Pullrite Superglide with the hidden rails.. When I take the hitch out , I just twist the 4 anchor mounts, and I have a completely flat truck bed... I used to keep a rubber truck mat for when I take the hitch out , I would lay it down so water would not spray in the 4 holes..
