RE: RV Entrance Door

I saw a unit in a CG a few years ago, where the owner had a second door custom added, because they couldn't make the turn in the factory door with a wheelchair, needed for spouse. Incredibly expensive modification, but doable...

RE: xm/sirus Roadie receiver

You still need a clear view of the sky for the Sat signal to hit the receiver. The receiver just then "rebroadcasts" the signal for your car radio to receive it.

RE: xm/sirus Roadie receiver

Isn't there supposed to be some kind of powered adaptor between the fm radio and the antenna plug for that system to work? I had that in a previous vehicle, so that I could receive the XM through the car's sound system.

Nicely done! It's on my to-do list...

RE: Basement Storage Mod

Looks great! I need to do the same! It looks like plywood? What thickness?

RE: Towing with 2014 Ram

When I was setting-up my previous WD hitch, I was missing a part from the kit, so I called Reese. In the phone call with the tech, he mentioned that it sounded like I had the correct weight bars, but that (like most people) I wasn't putting enough torque on them. He had me increase the tilt of the bar a bit, and use the power-jack to actually lift a bit to connect the dual-cam sway chains. This greatly increased torque, further reduced sway, and kept the truck level. The Timbrens helped KEEP it level, once I put the kayaks on the roof, and loaded the back of the truck with all of the "extra" stuff that we all seem to carry.

RE: Towing with 2014 Ram

Timbren's Check out installing a pair of Timbren's. Much less maintenance than the air suspension. I had them in my 2007 RAM 1500, and it the first modification that I made to my 2014 RAM 2500.

RE: Need input on tow vehicle

A 3500 gasser with the 4.10 is more than enough truck for the trailer that you described.

RE: a reminder to be careful out there

Deceiving title on article. The wind didn't blow them over, it caused some drift or sway, driver over-corrected, snd then flipped it. Gotta wonder what kind of hitch, was it properly adjusted, and was the TV /TT weight proportionately safe? Also, how fast were they moving when it happened? The faster you are moving, the less tire to roadway contact there is, so a lateral force, like wind, can cause a lot of sway.

RE: To Incorporate or not to Incorporate

I purchased my 5er in PA and paid no PA sales tax. Picked it up Thanksgiving weekend, and brought it back to NYS. Didn't register it here until after Jan 1, so the sales tax that I had to pay to register the trailer will be a deduction in 2016. I started a new business in 2015, and with start-up costs, I really didn't need any more deductions. The extra deduction in 2016 will be benificial.

RE: short bed hitch and pin requirements

I was in a Toyota dealership last weekend looking at a new RAV4 for the wife to drive during the week. They must have had 5 or 6 signs hung bragging about the Tundra pulling the space shuttle, but when you look at the "pull", that's all it was. No pin or tongue weight, other than the tow-bar.

RE: Easy way to see Long Island, NY?

Depending on where you are coming from, you can avoid much of what you would consider to be "NYC traffic". Yes, you have to drive in NYC to get to LI, but coming down I-95 from New England or the Hutchenson River Parkway (no trailers on the Hutch) you can hit ether the Throgs Neck Bridge or the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, and then it's an easy run down the Cross Island Expressway to the LIE. Now if you want to drive an RV or pull a trailer onto LI, that limits your route options more... PM me if you want more detail. I travel from Upstate NY to LI usually monthly, and I've figured out most of the good routes and times to travel....

RE: Question for Solar Experts

Not without panels or a steady DC power source, as the controller only accepts a DC input, then optimizes the charge to the battery. You mentioned "battery", singularly. Most solar panel system, other than the simple ones for just keeping the battery charge up during storage, have multiple batteries. My system depends on four 6v golf cart batteries, wired in series, then parallel, so that they act as two big 12v batteries.

RE: AIR HORN

While checking in at the Pearly Gates.... "Yes, St. Peter, I remember pushing the button on that air horn, and that REALLY seemed to anger that grizzly..... That's all I remember...." Seriously, black bears will scare out of camp by just banging some pans together. That is, unless they have focussed on a clear source of food. You leave food out, and forget about trying to scare them away..... No personal experience with grizzly's (and I prefer it that way!).

RE: 5th wheel vs tt

It's all determined by the capacity of his tow vehicle. Having towed a 28' TT, and now a 42' 5'er, I'd rather tow the extra 14' on a fifth wheel, then another pull-behind.

California Maximum 5th Wheel Length

I got into a discussion with someone on another forum (a FB page), who pointed me to a AAA website that clearly shows that multiple states, including California, limit 2-axle 5th wheel trailers to a max length of 40'. Is this accurate? I thought that I've seen posts from folks IN California, with longer rigs.... Why would the manufacturers build a trailer that you can't take to certain states? here's the link that started the discussion: AAA Driving Laws

RE: Fire Extinguishers

You don't need to "pound it". A few gentle raps on the bottom edge, working around the edge, the shake it. You should be able to feel the power "sloshing" inside the cylinder. That lets kyou know that it hasn't compacted at the bottom.

RE: I finally made the change

Made similar upgrade almost two years ago, and haven't looked back once! We really like the power and towing stability that the RAM 2500 Cummins combination provides.

RE: Best way to deal with 50A cable with a TT

My solution is a cord reel.

RE: Did your truck cost more than the house you live in now

Yes. House price (1979) was $25,500.... Put more than that as a down payment with my trade, and cash on current truck.....
