RE: Reciever size

I have yet to see a hitch-bar at the larger size.... just p/u a sleeve for less than $20, and go with it.

RE: Suggestions for Roof Rack to Haul 2 Kayaks on Quad Cab Truck

I use a pair of Thule cross-racks, each with three kayak cradles on them. The RAM doesn't have "gutters", but the racks clamp tightly on the upper inside lip of the door opening, and they don't interfere with the door or rain seal.

RE: backing on wrong side

Until you get your "markers" set, so that you know when to cut the wheel, put a small orange cone on the corners of the driveway, this should help some.

RE: backing on wrong side

If you cannot see it, I'd suggest that your right side mirror is likely too small, or improperly aligned.

RE: Crazy inverter question

I run my converter, with the fridge on propane and the inverter breaker off, exactly as described. I have a pair of 150w panels, and four 6v golf cart batteries for my battery bank.

Anyone using "Sniff and Stop" as a mouse preventative?

My wife was told that this is a great product for helping to keep mice out during the off-season. Anyone have any positive or negative comments/experiences? And please, no lectures on cleaning the RV before storing. It's thoroughly vacuumed and everything washed with Pinesol before storing....

RE: Screws for solar panels?

I spent a few extra $$$ and used only stainless steel wood screws.

RE: Route 90 through Cleveland

Yes, we went to Watkins Glen state park a few years ago and we are going back. The waterfalls there are beautiful! With this years drought, there is barely any water going over the Falls.....

RE: Maxxair vents covers-worth it?

I installed a MaxAir cover over my automatic FantasticFan, and had to take it off. The lid on the fantastic fan hit the underside of the MaxAir dome and wouldn't allow it to completely open. Since it wouldn't completely open, the limit switch on the fan wouldn't allow the fan to run. Removed the MaxAir dome and replaced it with a FantasticFan dome, and it works fine.

RE: Adirondack Rte 28

The route is good, some beautiful scenery along the way, but it's a climb! Lake Placid is in the middle of the Adirondack "High Peaks" region, so expect some long uphill pulls! That said, my work continually puts me all across NYS, and Lake Placid is BY FAR my favorite Village to get an assignment in. SO MUCH to do and see there!

RE: Stored groceries while traveling

Some stuff we plan on lasting an entire trip, some things, like fresh vegetables, we like to buy at local roadside stands. One of the places that we go on an annual basis is Dover , DE for the Fall NA$CAR race. We travel down with a nearly EMPTY freezer, because there is an Amish Market in Dover that we stock-up on specialty meats that lasts us through much of the next year. Otherwise, grocery store stops are a regular (every second or third day) occurrence for us....

RE: recommendations on tire pressure monitors

I bought the TST flow-through system at the beginning of the season for the new 5'er, and I'm very pleased with it. I've got a 10-sensor system.

RE: 2017 2500HD versus 3500HD SRW

How long is that combo in total? It's gotta be a handful once you pull off the highway. Just over 65', but since the tag axle wheels turn opposite the steer-wheels, it actually kicks the nose of the trailer OUT rather than hugging the turn direction. It has the effect of actually SHORTENING the trailer. I've pulled this trailer with both the ASH and a bed mounted Superglide hitch (which I will likely soon be selling), and it turns better with the ASH. I still need more practice backing, but I'll get out this Fall, and again in the Spring with some cones in an empty parking lot. Watch the videos on the ASH website,a nd you'll see how it maneuvers....

RE: 2017 2500HD versus 3500HD SRW

I tow a 42' 5'er, with a gross weight of 16,500# and a pin weight of 2900# with my RAM 2500 SRW.... But before any of the duly sworn Weight Police Officers arrest me or even scold me about the carnage and death that I could cause, I do it with an Automated Safety Hitch. Check out their website. Watch their videos. I'm VERY happy with mine, this far, and once the season is over, I intent to write-up and share a full product review. It's an expensive alternative, but I now have 4 tires running day to day, vs the 6 that I'd have with a dually, plus I don't have the fender extensions to deal with in parking lots... Additionally, the ASH gives me an extra 6000# axle with another full set of truck brakes that are as strong as the truck's rear brakes.....

RE: Firs time in the RV with hookups

On number 1, get a simple pressure regulature for the water pressure. And a disposable inline filter, if you aren't positive of the quality of the CG water lines....

RE: which GPS????

Just bought a Garmin RV760LMT, but have only used it around town to get used to it. Seems to get consistently better ratings than the Rand McNally, and I like it so far, but haven't used it enough in "real world" RV use to give it a two-thumbs up (or down) yet....

RE: Buying new truck, hitch question

Note that the frame system that attaches to the pucks raises your 5'er hitch by almost 2.5". This may or may not be critical, depending on your bed-height and the 5'er design height.

RE: Solar question

All but the very simple 12v output panels do. My 300W of panels output at 34.4v, so that needs to be converted to 13V+/- by the controller.
