RE: traveling on 74

74 is a good highway and good choice. Problem is around Charlotte. Once you get past Charlotte, Matthews, Monroe it will not be bad. Try to do it non rush hour. Not good anytime, but worse then obviously. Other option is 77 to Columbia, 20 to 95, then N on 95 to 327. 327 will take you to 76, 501 and MB. I would bite the bullet and take 74. Not bad at all when get away from Charlotte THX . . I will be leaving Carowinds around 10:00A - 10:30A.. With me starting south of Charlotte , I will just be on 485 for a short time before exiting....

RE: Can we travel with fresh tank full? We lose half on the way.

I put a ball valve on my over flow tube . .as soon as I get to the campground , it gets opened up with no loss of water.. Once that siphon starts , its hard to stop it.

traveling on 74

Traveling form Fort Mill SC to Myrtle Beadh ( NORTH ) will be traveling Thursday from Carowinds to Myrtle Beach Travel Park and wondering if 74 is the best way ? We usually go from PA and get off 95 onto 74 in Lumberton , how is 74 closer to Charlotte ? 2 lane , 4 lane , traffic lights ??

It almost happened

A little back story - I own and routinely drive 2 vehicles.. a 2016 5.0 F-150.. and a 2015 6.7 F-350 Diesel... Going to visit one of our other offices the other day , traffic was really bothering me.. I pulled into the rest stop , got a cup of coffee and rolled to the fuel pumps... As I opened the fuel door , with the green nozzle in my hand , I WOKE UP and remembered I was in my F-150 THAT WAS CLOSE ! Too close for comfort to be truthful

RE: Bridge Heights

MOST US Highways are to be 13'6"... we rarely travel off the highway.. You will need to be careful once you exit , and head towards your destination... I am careful not to use a mapping program , such as Waze when towing.. Also , watch out pulling into regular fuel stops...we have been pulling a 13'5" fiver since 2008 with no worries...

Picking up the new 5er Saturday morning. Will do PDI, hitch up and adjust if needed and spend two night's at the dealers campground to make sure everything is ok...Will follow up with report and pictures. Will be home Monday. Jim Jim , that's a great idea to stay for 2 days . . We'll be in the area Tuesday ! Keep the sunny weather going ... Will leave Monday, but might stay one more day. Let me know where you'll be just in case?? Jim You got it Jim... We will probably be making that decision over the weekend... Our plans were to roll out of PA Tuesday AM.. BUT with the DNC in town , all the major roadways have a truck and RV bans on them all week.... We may roll out Monday night with less traffic.. Either way , I need to be in the office in Stanley NC Wednesday 7AM

RE: My camper is in the river now or the river is to my camper

I would not hire a PA until you feel as though you are not being treated fair... You may leave money on the table if you hire one before knowing the settlement offer.

RE: Tappan Zee Bridge Closed Indefinitely

It looks like traffic just got a whole lot worse around that area.. That is , if it could get worse... I traveled down to Eastern PA from Rhode Island yesterday... had the choice of either 287 across the Tapp , or the GW Bridge.. I figured that since it would be around 11am . I would be fine . . WRONG ! ! 3 hours to go 4 miles.... what a disgrace ! That will teach me ... I can only imagine how bad it will be now?

RE: stopping distance, disk vs drum

seems to be a solid consensus on the disks being worth the money. Any recommendations on brand? Actuator? Will it work with existing brake controller from 2011 Ford King Ranch or do I have to install something on the dash? Thanks. I got mine installed by Ron Russell from Performance Trailer Braking.. While at MORryde in June getting my IS Installed , they told me that they were starting to handle the Titan actuator , as it is faster then the others... in regards to the system , The Kodiak's and Titan's are exactly a like.. all parts are interchangeable.. Depending on your schedule and where you arte , Ron will have his installers go directly to you , if they are close to the area.

RE: Survey: How often do you chock your wheels?

I chock every time I unhook... For the time it takes to do so , it's NOT WORTH the chance.. At a very early age of camping , I took a short cut and did not chock on a mostly flat site.. while hooking back up , the trailer slid backwards , off the blocks on the front landing gear .and on the wet grass ,as the pin was a bit lower.. That was an eye opener for me.. No damage ,just to my ego...

RE: KZ Escalade 41CKS?

I had a 2008 KZ Montego Bay , that was the sister unit to the Escalade .. My friend had an 08 Escalade 41 CKS.. We both loved our trailers , and had almost no problems with them , other than the small basic stuff... Back then , KZ was a different company to deal with, you could do a lot directly with them.. NOW they are part of THOR and things have changed... But that wont matter to you on that .. Watch the roof.. neither my friend or I had the issue , but I met 2 people that did have the problem... Best to go up and walk the rook... They are good solid units , Good Luck Joe

RE: Good installer for Disc Brakes ?

I would highly recommend Performance Trailer Braking, and the Titan system Ron Russell is the owner and he is a camper... Here is a post that he wrote for another --- "ronald73072 wrote: Leon, There are several possibilities. I am with Performance Trailer Braking and install 100+ of the Titan System a year. Call me at 405-626-7009 if you still have a problem." He did mine , and I love them... He and his installers travel around the country
