RE: How important is it to access the bed with slides closed?

Slide in access priority. Bath #1' Bed #2, Fridge #3. No access to bath is a deal breaker for me. Bed and fridge are not necessarily deal breakers

RE: How do you like our rear-entry, rear-living FP?

Do you find that there is enough room in a rig like this for fulltiming? First deal breaker. Not enough counter space for full time living. TV needs to be closer more directly in front of chairs,. Lastly is bathroom accessible with slides in?

RE: Best bunkhouse with bathroom entry

Try the passport elite 29BH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kW27ZSAsUnc Jayco has power jacks as an option on their White Hawk series....but I would be careful with those. They are kind of slow, way slower than using a cordless drill with a bit. Also often you need to be near the stabilizers to position jack pads, and if you have to hold a button somewhere it could be inconvenient. I love electric stuff, but stabilizer jacks aren't something I would ever get. On fifth wheels they have self leveling systems....those are different, I don't know any TTrailers that have that. Check this out. Auto Level for TT's is now available New Lippert Auto level for TT's Ground control for TT video. Watch new system in action

RE: Are you plugged in all of the time?

Plugged in at home 24/7 365 I will check levels 2-3 time a year Spring or beginning of season, August middle of season, December end of season. I may add a few ounces of water her and there but really no issues. I have been taking this approach about 8 years now

RE: One 30 lb and one 20 lb propane tank for versatility?

Sounds lioke a bad idea to me. If you had the additional 10 pound capacity of 30 vs. 20 you would not run out and need to exchange the tank

RE: Light vs heavier 5ers

A heavier unit will more than likely have more features and a higher payload capacity (ability to carry more weight). A heavier unit will require a more capable truck. Durability and longevity are not necessarily a related to weight Initially you can shop all trailers and decide which you truly like, however at some point you will also need to determine how big a truck you want. Are you prepared to purchase a 1 ton dually pick up? The truck and trailer are a matched combo, as you narrow down your 5'er choices and sizes you will begin to figure out how much truck is required to haul it.

RE: Thermometer remote monitoring

It depends WHERE you are. If you have never traveled to Florida you can't make dangerous comments that it is OK to leave pets in a closed up RV in the Florida sun with an AC malfunction. :R When In Florida. Air goes out in an RV and you have a dead dog. I'm hear to tell from experience the temp goes from 70 or 80 to well 'over' 100 in just minutes when the AC or power to it fails. Remember all the windows are closed. It's a death trap.How did dogs survive before air conditioning? I assume there were no dogs in Fl. before A/C was invented. We are not talking about a car with all the windows closed. We are talking an RV. I'm sure it can reach 100. But I think a dog can survive in 100 weather for a few hours

RE: How we empty our RV waste tanks at a dump station

My hope is that there is no one in line at the dump station if/when you are back flushing your tanks. If there is a line dump and move on. Cleaning tanks is not important enough to hold up the line. I'm not sure why some obsess over getting there tanks spotless only to fill it with poo next week

RE: Thermometer remote monitoring

My dog stays home 8 hours per day while I'm at work. He will also stay in the RV all day if we are out sightseeing. I do not monitor the temperature in either case. I don't think he is going to perish if there is a power failure? Does anyone personally know of a pet that perished at a CG in a hot RV?

RE: Garmin backup camera

Lantley you have the 7" do you ever think it is to much, that is big. my older Garmin is 5. and it fits good in the spot. 7 would be great if it doesn't look out of place I guess you get used to it . 7" screen is great. easy to see. The larger screen is a real plus when in camera mode

RE: Solid counters

I would prefer solid surface vs. Laminate, especially if you gain an undermount sink. Laminate with an undermount sink would be a deal breaker for me

RE: Garmin backup camera

I have the Garmin 760LMT and BC-20 back up camera. Works well. Beware you will most likely need extension cable if camera is mounted at rear of 35' fiver

RE: Visiting Washington DC - Cherry Hill Camp ground

THere are other CG options in the DC area but none of them cater to the tourist site seeing crowd like Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill is king of the hill when it comes to touring DC

RE: Theft: the bad, the bad, and the really bad

CG are for the most part safe. Leave your worries and anxiety back in the city. There is nothing really valuable in my storage bins. Yes I have chairs Weber Grill and the usual stuff, but I'm not going to spend a lot of time worrying about it. I take reasonable precaution but where does it end. I find it funny many of us have cameras rigged up to watch our house when we are on the road. It's hard to be happy and carefree when we are constantly concerned and monitoring our stuff. It's just stuff, let it go. I'm not sleeping with one eye open, to protect my stuff cause it can all be replaced. But time spent worrying about your stuff is gone forever!

RE: Not being part of the PDI?

I would not sweat it as long as you are given a chance and ample time to do your own PDI. For the record the buyer is generally not present during home inspections.

RE: Full time residences in RV Parks

We stayed at a campground near Atlanta Motor Speedway as a whim (didn't feel up to the last 8 hours home). The front of the campground was clearly folks moving through. The back of it had mostly folks that had made this their home for quite some time, non-mobile additions and such. We lived in our RV for over a year (with 3 kids and 2 dogs) at the same campground trying to sell a house when the rich folks and the goverment crashed the economy a few years back. We did have a few more items than a normal weekend camper (mostly our Chiminea fire pit and our ice maker, so we could have margaritas outside while the little ones were going to sleep), but we didn't look like a Beverly Hillbillies yard sale. Campground management wouldn't allow it. Permanent campers does not have to mean junky cluttered campsites unless management allows it to be that way.

RE: New truck, New trailer, TONS of sway!

Before I join the too much trailer band wagon what is the GVW of your truck? What type tires are on the truck. What is the actual TW of the trailer? There needs to be some base line info before hitting the panic button

RE: Country Haven now KOA near Lancaster PA area?

Thanks Blangen for the heads up on the Philly Park and Ride CG. Could be useful info to me one day. Country Acres is my go to place in Lancaster. Old Mill is great if you have young kids and can take advantage of Dutch Wonderland the adjacent amusement park. Otherwise Old Mill is well run but the sites are a little tight and some are a bit unlevel. Not terrible, but they may require a little maneuvering. I have never had any issues with Country Acres management. They have a nice new section with easy to negotiate pull through sites.

RE: Towing a mid-profile vs a full-profile 5er?

Curious why you wouldn't lower the 5th by adjusting the pin box? Picture appears you have a ton of room between 5th and truck rails. Because it is sitting level and has never been a problem in the 5,000 miles we have pulled it in the last year. It's like I said before, anyone with these high profile trailers need to watch what they go under. Several of the campgrounds we have been to seem to care less about low branches and that does not mix well with a rubber roof. We have also seen some service station canopies with 13 foot clearance. It's your dice and your dime, but if my rig were taller than 13'6" which is the federal standard. I would make some adjustments. Frankly 5K miles is not a lot of miles in the grand scheme of things. The risk is just not worth it. Hitting an overpass would be disastrous.
