RE: What size 5th wheel plate should I get?

I have a 18,000 pound rated hitch , for my 16,500 pound fifth wheel.. Like stated , as long as the Hitch is rated for MORE than the trailer , your good.

RE: Richmond VA Raceway

Why would you have to out by noon on Sunday if it was a Sunday day race? Did you mean Mon for those races and Sun for the Sat night race? Up till last week , for the past 10 years or so it has been Saturday night race twice a year... This April race was the first to go back to Sunday... Spring - Sunday afternoon - leave by noon Monday Fall - Saturday Night - leave by noon Sunday

RE: Onan install... 5.5 or 6.5

RPM will stay the same at 3600 rpm How many A/C units do you have, will have? The 6500w silk give you a few more amps , if you need too run two A/C's I would get the 6500 2 @ 15K AC's . . Not so sure we would run both all the time... My thinking is that the 6.5 may help with fuel consumption.. they are both rated the same at half load ( .8 ).. Thinking I can get more usage out of half the 6.5 load.?

Onan install... 5.5 or 6.5

I have been quoted to have an Onan 5.5 installed in my genny compartment... What are the pro's and con's of a 6.5 - vs - 5.5 ? Is the extra KW's and rpm worth the $800.00 up charge?

RE: Richmond VA Raceway

Anyone have any knowledge or know anything about camping at the Raceway during non event weekends? We are looking for a spot closer to downtown Richmond for an overnight stopover. Thanks! I believe that they are closed , except for race weekends.. Too much cost involved with little or no revenue at the time... When i camp there for both races , we are only allowed to enter on the Tueday of race week, no earlier...and MUST be out by noon on Sunday. All gates close

RE: Popping spark plugs V10

I had a 2000 F-250 with the V-10 and it blew a plug . . I waited 3 months for a fix , they could not fix them fast enough... I too thought the issue has been long since fixed....

RE: What truck do we need to haul this 5er?

Looking at a 5er with these specs: Length: 32'4" Height: 12'8" Dry axle weight: 9,215 Hitch weight: 2,090 Dry weight: 11,305 Average load capacity: 3,694 What truck would we need to safely navigate mountains, like Yosemite? It seems like if we want 4 season, it always gets heavier! Thanks for your help! What is the GVW of that trailer ? 15K ? If so, take your pick of any of the new generation big 3 SRW with the diesel... I am assuming that the GCW would be adding the dry weight with the load capacity? If so, 14,999.....basically 15,000. Is this considered to be an overly heavy rig? It is a good size one,,, BUT it seems that the weight are off... For a trailer that is only 32'4" , 15K seems to be on the high side.my last trailer was 40' and had a GVW of 15K... My present trailer is 41'5" and has a 16K GVW.... But any way , like I stated before , if your buying new , the 1 ton SRW will handle that load,,, if buying used , depending on he year , you may have to go to the DRW . .

RE: Rear kitchens = porpoising?

Dont eliminate a plan because the fridge is blocked.In most cases in less than 10 sec your in there.Your on holidays and not in a race. Good thought , but it's not always about the time.... MOST of the time , the fridge that is not accessable is on the street side... I am NOT ready to put my street side slide out ( into traffic) just to get drinks if on the side of the road.... Been traveling with kids for a long time, it happens..

RE: What truck to fit 6 people and fifth wheel?

If you go with any of the big 3, as long as you get the crew cab with 40/20/40 split bench up front.. That is what we have and have had a few 6 people trips (2 adults & 4 early teens) from PA to Disney with all comfortable

RE: Rear kitchens = porpoising?

Porpusing should not be an issue in a fifth wheel due to a RK.. When I was upgrading to my current fiver I was at a dealer and he said "you don't want hydraulic slides or level system".. His reasoning was that hydraulic systems are weak... I said ok, let me compare the 2, .. He couldn't.... What a surprise, only cable slides and electric 4 point level..walk away if they can't be truthful

RE: Dark front end cap owners

Ask the dealer if the front and rear caps are either color infused gelcoat , or painted and clear coated.. IF they are painted and cleared, you are better off than the other.. If they are color infused gelcoat, you will have to really stay on top of them with wax in hopes to keep them from fading...

RE: Ya think this is too close...

Man, that is my worst nightmare when towing....Mine too. I will fill up even if at 3/4 tank, if I'm already stopped for something else, and it's convenient. Waiting until you absolutely have to is really scary! I also top off whenever we stop for something else.... And when running somewhere I have never been before , I start looking at 1/2 . With a 51 gallon tank , that leaves me PLENTY of padding. I was always taught NOT to let the tank get that low as it would suck up all the debris from the bottom ( if any )
