RE: Fifth wheel hitch

I have truck in my sig towing TH in my sig..It's almost 45' long and has a GVW of 20K..I have the B&W RVK3600 Companion Hitch..WORKS GREAT! Dropped right into Ram puck system and there is no chucking or bounce....One of the best investments I've made:) Jim

RE: Montana 3160 RL

What G rated tires are you getting that will only cost you $700, and not be Chinese made? Oh I'm not. I'm getting Sailun S637's for closer to $600. That being said I was quoted G614's for $1080 and will be selling my Trailer Kings for $400. Hence the figure I posted. The Sailun is a most excellent, quality built tire..I will be replacing my Westlake tires also with the S637's...very, very reasonably priced.

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

We're heading back up to our camp Thursday afternoon and will come home Sunday..Kathy is getting a hip replacement as soon as she can get it set up..I'm still fighting the weak leg and left arm....they're coming along, but it's a painful, frustrating process. Hope all of you are well and having a great day. Jim

RE: Montana 3160 RL

3160RL Owner checking in. Picked our unit up in February after trading in our troublefree Bristol Bay fiver. I was worried that a new RV would not be as troublefree. Our 3160 has been great so far. We are changing out the tires but that is going to set me back a whopping $700 to go G-rated and I had to do it with our Bristol Bay as well. Definitely not Montana specific as the entire RV industry is plagued with China bomb tires. That's easily demonstrable amongst the various rv forums. It's cheap insurance basically to go G-rated. We are hitting the 90-day mark soon and the only thing I will be asking to have worked on is a very minute hydraulic leak on one of the front landing gear. In fact I need to just go check to see if the fittings are tight. Might be as simple as that! That's not bad and frankly I was surprised that there were no fit/finish issues considering how nice and intricate these new units are. We love the floorplan and it feels especially roomy for it's length. We also really love the second awning on the door side as we spend a good chunck of time there. Very few floorplans out there with that second awning over the outdoor entertainment center. Makes for a nice second area to set up the Weber grill at the TV! Basement is huge. We liked the theater seats actually being directly across from the tv also. A downside to the floorplan is that there is a tight spot in the hallway at the bathroom door. The door swings out into the hallway and you really need to open the bedroom door to get in comfortably. It's not a big deal for us but it's something I would point out for you to try when walking through it. If I had to do it again I may have looked harder for a Legacy package 3160 as the price on a few I've seen lately really isn't that far apart from the non-legacy version. I used that as a bargaining chip also though to get a few more bucks off. To each their own. :) What G rated tires are you getting that will only cost you $700, and not be Chinese made?

RE: Ordered new Ram truck

I went from my 2013 to the 16' because this is my retirement truck, (July 22nd, I turn 66).Wanted the truck for the newer updates, i.e. the extra TQ, (900), and the rear air assist..which works great...Also like the cargo camera..I'ts an excellent tool when hooking 5er up. The auto headlights and auto windshield wipers REALLY work...Nice touch. The leather is high grade, and all the amenities really wrap you in the "lap of luxury". whether cruising or towing....The truck towed the new TH effortlessly through the mountains of TN, VA,NC and WV...The EB is awesome..and the truck is smoother than my 13'..The medium duty Aisin tranny strapped to the medium duty Cummins is a great combination in a TV. The Pearl White color really looks good with all the chrome accents..(I'm old school...I like chrome:B) Jim I like bling too buddy. You can look at any of my trucks and tell that. I wish Ram would come out with a better looking wheel for the duallys though. LOL I like the aluminum alloy wheels..look, "snazzy":B

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Hard to believe that Jon and I, with several others got this thread going as a joke going on 11 years ago...W-O-W..Good to see we have some new friends showing up..hope all of you decide to stick around and be a part of this little thread of our's. ...for quite some time, Jon, rosie and myself kept it going...Good to see new friends showing up. Kathy and I towed our new TH up to our camp in WV Sunday, the 10th....a 300 mile tow with the new truck...we stopped more than several times because I was getting a little stiff and upper back muscles bothered me..That's first time I'd towed any distance since Aug 10th of last year...Still working on my leg and arm/hand strength..better, but STILL a work in progress.. Truck towed great..love the rear air assist..The TH is all we hoped it would be..we have no toy's but have a lot of storage now...We plan on selling the house in August and moving to our camp in WV and heading west, south west when temps grow colder... I'm in a "training mode" at work, training people called Setters, who run manufacturing lines...keeps me busy.. rosie, hope you and Art are better and go camping soon...Jon, hope the finger is better and hope your better half is doing well. I don't know that much about our new friends, but feel free to share:) Just mowed the yard and going to get cleaned up...Take care out there. Jim

RE: First pull with new truck

Same here in 99' had a 1/2 ton truck towing a TT, truck did great, oh, and was new...purchased a 5er...lost big time when I traded the 1/2 ton for a 3/4 ton which did a better job towing in the mountains...live and learn...sometimes it'll really cost you. Jim

RE: chicken or the egg? question

Actually.... God created... THEN he said, "Be fruitful and multiply." The egg is a product of reproduction. The animal was created first, then he told them "be fruitful and multiply". So, since the egg is a product of reproduction for the chicken, the chicken came first! How did chickens & eggs turn into dog stories? I have another explanation: A chicken and an egg are lying in bed. The chicken is leaning against the headboard smoking a cigarette, with a satisfied smile on it's face. The egg, looking a bit p_ _ _ _d off, grabs the sheet, rolls over, and says, . . . "Well, I guess we finally answered THAT question. DutchmenSport answered correctly and in good taste...but he believes as I do, which isn't politically correct or popular in today's time and world...sad. You may want to ask the OP why they titled the thread the way they did, then talked about pets...

RE: chicken or the egg? question

After raising 2 children & living with all of the restrictions that goes with being resonsible for in raising children we throughly enjoy the irresponsible life of not having to worry about pets on the road. We go where we want, stay as long as we want all day & don't have to worry about if the little dear is barking annoying the neighbours of having to modify what we go see one at a time because somebody has to babysit the dog. A dog lives in our home but neither it nor the cats are ours. Beats me why anyone would want to travel with furry children after decades of dealing with the 2 legged variety. Raised 3 children, helped raise two of our grandchildren for about 3 years...our two boxers travels better than any of our children or grandchildren did. I guess it's different strokes for different folks...I don't condemn anyone for having a dog or not having a dog..I don't like incessant barking, ( ours don't), and I get ticked off at people too lazy to clean up after their pets...(we always clean up after ours and control where they go). So you don't understand any of this.?..that's good....we won't have to worry about your dogs barking or messing around where I or others camp. We enjoyed raising our 3 kids and also in helping raise two of our four grandkids, and we love our dogs and are responsible pet owners...quite easy to understand really.

RE: Ordered new Ram truck

Let me know when you come through Ky Jim. Will do buddy... Just got finished mowing yard up here.. Push mowed a 1/2 acre or so... I'm whupped and very sore. But feel good about having done it Jim

RE: Ordered new Ram truck

I pulled several 7% grades on I 77 and I 64 and the truck really towed the TH quiet easily.. Never got out of the mountains, so 8.3 mpg with only, at the time, around 1,000 miles on the truck, was pretty good I thought. So I see I need to get with my buddies in here to see where I need to stay when in your "neck of the woods":) Have a good day y'all Jim

RE: Ordered new Ram truck

Sounds like a nice trip! 8.anything isn't bad at all for mountain driving towing that much weight. When I was younger I used to drive all day. Now 300-350 miles in a day is plenty. Then I'm ready to stretch out with a cold Margarita and burn a steak on the WeberQ. Wishing you the best! I'm going with the 300-350 miles a day..if I can handle it...I'm still getting sore in my neck and upper back...just hoping some of the pain will eventually go away, and I get my left arm "mostly" back Take care buddy Jim

RE: Ordered new Ram truck

Good job Jim. A similar setup as you have just pulled beside us in Idaho. Sites are 75 ft long . wow I would think when you waxed yours it would tire you out. Don't over do. Chevman I've waxed the back garage door , entire curbside and bottom, as high as I could reach on the drivers side..it IS a long trailer..site we stayed at in TN were 75' long pull throughs..pretty nice Yeah, I'm sore:)

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

RE: Ordered new Ram truck

Got to admit I'm tired...been pretty up here on theGreenbriar River...love the mountains..will leave camper here till after I retire and head, south, south west or west come October, November...looking forward to putting a face to some of my friends out there.. Everyone have a great day. Hope the mileage will be better, but at 44' 7" long and loaded now to a little over 17K and all towing in the mountains, didn't think 8.3 was that bad...it's more uphill going from TN to WV...I'd do better going back. Later, Jim

RE: Ordered new Ram truck

Alright... Left TN a little after 6 am, drove 300.5 miles and averaged 8.3 mpg... I ran 62-65 mph, all in the mountains..mpg was hand calc...EVIC said 8.4, so it is very close to being accurate... Truck towed 5er with very little effort...even the wife was impressed towing up 7% grades at time and the truck keeping speed down when descending 7% grades...I'm really impressed... The air leveling system is the cats meow...and the TH has everything working..., so though I'm really tired and sore...weather was beautiful and all went well... I'm gonna take a nap

RE: Ordered new Ram truck

This weekend I plan on making about a 300 mile tow from Sevierville TN to our camp in Pence Springs WV, (if I can make it that far)...That's the plan...Will be my first long tow, all in the mountains..looking forward to see how the truck and camper do on a longer trip. Jim You'll do fine! Set a comfortable pace and enjoy the trip. Wishing you a fun trip and good health! Thanks buddy:)
