RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

What are recommended tire manufactures these days for 5th wheels?You can search 'tires' in the Subject, in 5th wheels, and have lots of reading. Use Advanced search. If that's a wise ass answer, sorry, but tires are discussed almost daily here. Electra makes a bicycle tire.. maybe that's your problem! hahaha As far as your particular problems other than tires, maybe somebody knows about that.

RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

You've told us pretty much everything except the brand of tires.

RE: Solar Tax Credits

If you own a house and a RV, good luck on passing an audit.I have taken a solar deduction twice, online,no paper. No audit yet. The gov't loves it when you file online, because it's so much less work for them, and you.

RE: Surprise for hubby, help with numbers.

I don't know what their opinion is on if they are throwing away money or not. It is not my business.ok. I must have misunderstood your second post.

RE: Surprise for hubby, help with numbers.

No. Does anyone know the condition of the tt? So throwing money away is ok in this hhousehold?

RE: HD DVR dedicated inverter

I think it is more about negotiating an adjustment or settlement in private.Interesting concept. Then they should have asked me to call them, or called me as they did to recommend this product. This discussion isn't exactly private.
2oldman 07/27/14 09:55am Tech Issues

I drove by it this morning and stopped to look at before they opened.Post pics? Is it listed online somewhere?

RE: HD DVR dedicated inverter

Yeah. Many businesses choose to ignore email when it's not a sale. I thought this business was better than that.

RE: HD DVR dedicated inverter

Already did..no response. I'm at least going to tell them to not recommend this inverter to anyone.

RE: HD DVR dedicated inverter

.. a very quiet GoPower 150w 24 volt sine wave inverter..At 6lbs it's probably very good, but I need 12v. I'll mess around with this pos for awhile.

RE: HD DVR dedicated inverter

Randy ask if I wanted the SSW350 told me I would say a few buck. I went for it, might be sorry on that move?Here's another problem for you... This inverter imparts a very noticeable low (60hz?) hum into the bass speaker of a set of computer speakers I use for TV audio. Only a very careful positioning of the audio input wires to the amp box will have any effect on it. It gets quieter, but always there. Rats.

RE: Liability Insurance on travel trailers

It's not a concern I would have.
2oldman 07/25/14 09:05pm Travel Trailers

GCame up on this one with 35k miles and they asking $59,000. Seems pricey but unsure where find their value..... It's hard to find a book value. You may want to check with your state licensing agency as to what they think its value is. That seems reasonable to me, maybe a bit high, but that's also very low miles. Are they a pulling machine over my current '12 F-450? Compared my 03 f450 PSD, yeah. Compared to yours, maybe not. I know they're starting to pack some real punch in these smaller diesels. My PST was 550ft-lb. My 2008 Cummins ISC 8.3 is 800ft-lb. Big difference. How is the ride? Amazing. If yours has air springs, air cab and air seat (and maybe air hitch), it'll be whole new world on the road. My 450 was really uncomfortable. Fuel mileage not towing? 11.5 Reliability? Can't complain. Maintenance history availability unknown. Take it to a diesel shop and have them hook it up to the ECM computer to determine its current health. I should have done that before buying mine, but I was inexperienced. I had to have $800 worth of work done on it within a few months of purchase, but she's good as new now. Anything to watch out for being 11 years old? Oil leaks. Air leaks. The ECM will tell you everything you need to know about the engine. I am of course assuming that year did have computer controls. I've read maneuverability is better with these any personal experiences? The wheel cut is much better than my F450. I never could get used to how much radius it needed to make U turn Fuel tank capacity-I fuel filler on each side? Mine are 50 gallons per side. The fuel gauge doesn't work real well, so I use the trip odometer. When the fuel gauge reads 1/4 I'm at about 1/2. It's fun to pull into the big-rig diesel pumps and hook up a hose to each side and let 'er rip! Looks like it has an auxiliary air conditioner control...? Don't know about that. Mine has an inverter, drop down TV screen and a kick-butt audio system. And a really crappy Pioneer in-dash GPS, XM/AM/FM radio. That's the only thing I find really cheesy about my truck. It looks like something out of the 80s. Air brakes? No. Air ride? Oh yeah. Drives like a cloud. Brake life expectancy as a very general guideline (I know lots of variables) Don't know. You'll learn to use your engine brake (or exhaust brake) way more than your service brakes. Those brakes should be huge. I did like that about my 450. Big disc brakes I never had to replace in 120k miles. Will I be looking at a change in pinbox adjustment over what my 450 currently rides at...? I did. I had to raise my 5ers pin box a few inches to get level. No adjustments on the truck. A lot of engine/road noise?? There is some annoying wind noise on the driver door. Haven't tackled that yet. Engine noise? No. Just a nice rumbling purr of a real big heavy 6-cylinder diesel engine. I wouldn't call it real quiet in the cab. Newer pickups may have it beat on that issue. It looks really nice and would appreciate a larger rig that matches the trailer and maybe doesn't get pushed around so much by a large heavy DRV. I want to do more research on this as I plan to see it/drive it this weekend. Good luck with it. As I said, it's a whole new world of towing for you. Huge steering wheel, gauges all over the place, transmission buttons on the dash, 22.5 tires that feel as if they're not rolling at all, and weight. These trucks are heavy, and that makes a big difference when you don't want to feel your trailer pushing you around. You won't be taking this truck to your local diesel mechanic for repairs. Depending on its engine, you'll look for a certified shop specializing in that brand. There are Freightliner shops all over the US, so it's not a big deal. These places are designed to get you fixed and on the road, and I find them a real nice experience over a regular shop. A regular FL60 "work truck" will be considerably cheaper, and for good reason. The Sportchassis is a real snazzy looking rig, hence, more money.

RE: Quiet Water Pumps

Why the fuss over the sound that the pump makes? I like to hear it.Not everybody does. Have you guys ever heard a flojet? They do not sound like Shurflo pumps.

RE: Antique battery?

It appears it was an 8v battery, with only 2 of the 4 original cells remaing. WAG.
