RE: NASCAR new deal!

It may help on the super speedways. Hopefully more drivers will be trying to move to the front in the first 2 segments instead of playing "follow the leader."

RE: Senior Citizens or Soon to be

I already have a Senior Pass. Does DW need one also?

RE: Detachable Side Mirrors for auto

+++ McKesh. Had them on my Explorer, then Envoy.

RE: Route 3 in New York

We take RT3 all the time but we only go to Tupper Lake, Saranac, or Placid. If you do take RT3, Harrisville speed limits are strictly enforced.

RE: Think I found the right trailer but could use some advise.

Look at the paperwork for the specific 2150 you have in mind. GD lists the actual weights, including left side, right side, and tongue weight. Your truck should be just fine. Equalizer is the standard by which all other hitches are compared to. Lots of people are running Blue Ox too. I have a Reese dual cam, 10 years old that I got heavier bars for the new TT.

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

Memory's a bit fuzzy, but wasn't the Ford Mustang introduced as a 1964-1/2? Or an early '65?

RE: Garmin RV 770 LMT-S

DW got me a Garmin RV 660 for Christmas. In RV mode it routes you on a longer trip for the sake of keeping you on a 4-lane highway longer. I'll use it, but will also use GS's trip planner and Google maps for pre-trip planning.

RE: Building & Installing my BBQ Table

Dang, that's slick! I thought about doing something similar using a 2" trailer receiver bolted to the bottom of the frame rail facing out, and fabbing a right-angle mount out of 2" square tubing.

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

Hey Rin, I'm in the same situation. My "2017" GD 2650 (bought Aug 2016) is really a 2016. It doesn't have any of the 2017 upgrades. But the standard disclaimer still applies. Yeah, the GD Kool-Aid tastes a little funny..... On another note, we had a Heartland previously. They made a running change to a deeper, flush slide instead of the shallow step-up one, still the same model year. I held out to find one with the new slide.

RE: pros & cons of waste pumps with macerators

If you camp with full hookups, no - you don't need a macerator pump. We camp up to 2 weeks at a time w/o hookups. I have a macerator pump and a 30-gallon barrel w/ dump valve in the truck bed. Fill it, then run to the dump station. If we camp over a holiday weekend I'll empty the the tanks the night before we leave and avoid the dump station traffic jam. And rather than string 30' of sewer hose at home, I'll run the pump while rinsing the black tank.

RE: New 2017 Winnie design features

Interesting, since Winnebago now owns Grand Design. There was speculation that Winnebago would phase out their TT's in favor of the GD badge.

RE: Black Tank Flush

Until the water runs clear. I find that a toilet wand does a better job, though. I'll get more "stuff" out of the tank using a wand even after I use the tank flush.

RE: Experience with Solaire

We looked at a Solaire and thought it was a nice looking trailer. You do realize the F150 isn't going to cut it unless you have the max payload package, right?

RE: 2016 Silverado heads up

Ditto. My '04 GMC battery line was always hot. The F150 required me to install a fuse and relay (included) and the 12V line is dead when the vehicle is off.

RE: Carl Edwards To Retire

Yeah, I hope it's not a serious personal or family issue that's forcing him to retire. Carl was DW's favorite driver.

RE: TT recommendations

And before you put the cart before the horse - what do you plan to tow it with?

RE: Does costco give discount off of posted fuel price.

A bit OT, but BJ's offers $.10 a gallon discount if you use their MasterCard. No rewards, it's taken off right at the pump.

RE: Can you use 1# LP bottle to feed gas system?

Been there - done that. I bungi-corded the 1# cylinder to the trailer frame and ran the fridge on it. I found an outdated, old-style valved 10# propane tank in somebody's trash. I had it re-valved and re-certified and use it on my big 3-burner Coleman stove.

RE: Inverter Generator Help Please

For 4 days four-6V batteries sounds like overkill, I can go 2 days on dual G29 batteries and that's with a fridge vent fan running. If you have a WFCO converter your money may be better spent on upgrading it to a PD or IOTA. What's your power useage? Do you have LED lighting in the trailer? 10 years ago I bought a Honda 2000i and never looked back. It runs everything except the AC.
