RE: New Cummins Question

I’ve always filled up at the pump. Cost from $2.55-$2.75 a gallon. It’s usually Blue DEF. Jim

Got down to 24 last night.. but no wind and it was sunny all day, though high temp was only 48.. supposed to get down 28 tonight with a high of about 52 tomorrow. I hope you and Your better half are doing well. Kathy and I are fine as is our family in NC and TX... take care and have a great rest of this weekend!! Jim

RE: Direct TV Won’t Work on my 2018 Montana?

Don't use Direct TV you will regret it. Have had DIRECTV for close to 25 yrs, never had an issue that wasn’t easily fixed. Full timing got over a year with auto satellite on roof and a Genie in the living room and slave in bedroom. Never had a problem. Have never regretted it and enjoy it everyday.. as stated zero issues.. works every time. Jim

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

We’re going to get some cool temps als, but not as low as yours. Saturday morning, supposed to hit a low of 24 and a high of 54... that’s the coldest we’ve seen once last year later in Nov.. when it was in the teens. Thursfay and Friday, lows in 30’s.. so, two full 40 gallon tanks of propane, plus heaters ought to be fine. Hope you have a great day and all is well with you and your family Later buddy Jim

RE: 3M Crystaline Window film vs Double Pane Windows

I forgot to mention that our house has the "strongest" gas filled double pane windows. We get 110F summers here. I found that even with these "heavy duty" double pane windows, the hot sun still just streams through STRONGLY. It wasn't until we put the mesh sun screen material mounted outside of the windows that we could tolerate the amount of heat transmitted through the glass. I've seen the Huper Optik window film demonstration where they put a heat lamp on the other side of a coated piece of glass. The amount of heat that it cuts down is most impressive. I understand about the noise issue with double panes. But with double panes, window film will void the warranty because the heat rejection of the film will expand the gas between the panes and blow the seals. Being that I'm primarily interested in managing the heat from the hot summers, I'm leaning towards single pane windows and the solar film. I'm just not confident that double panes will do that much for heat control given my experience with relatively expensive double pane residential windows. Why even bother with *opinions* on a forum, especially when "facts" are hard to come by? ..:@ Results can go either way depending on the number of respondents, which is a very, VERY small fraction of the "users"...:S Think you had already made your decision anyway - So choose what YOU believe is best for YOU and go for it..:C ~ Agree with you ol Bombero, sounds like he wanted to know about double pane versus single pane, but in reality had already made up his mind and didn’t really need to post about double pane windows at all. Didn’t make a lot of sense. Jim

RE: My friend claims he has never needed more than 3000

Not all fridges are gas/electric, we have a residential fridge. We also have a 5500 propane gen in 5er in my sig and it’s more than enough to run all we need to have if power were to go out. The hot water heater will run on propane and we also have an inverter to help out if needed. Jim

RE: 3M Crystaline Window film vs Double Pane Windows

There are more benefits than just stopping condensation. They help with keeping noise out, and noise in. They aren’t that heavy , on my 5er weight added was 65#. They help cool in summertime and help with keeping warm in fall, spring and winter. Ours is dual pane and darkly tinted. I had them in a 2006 Holiday Rambler Presidential Suite. Had the unit almost 10 years, NEVER had an issue with the windows...nothing went wrong with them, never lost a seal, no condensation between the panes. I won’t own a 5er without them. Weight is a non issue , pros outweight the cons and I’m going on 12 years of having them . Jim

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

Hey Jon, so far we’ve dodged any bad weather.. it’s frosted once so far! Cloudy right now, 40 degrees this morning and supposed to hit upper 60’s.. Not bad for Nov. 3rd in WV. Hope all is well with you and your family.. Going to head outside and do a little work in the yard.. Y’all take care and have a great day. Jim

RE: bridgestone or michelin

Yep - my factory supplied wheels are/were rated for 80 psi. Works for RIBS, and? *If* I needed to replace wheels (I don't) - 17.5 rims & tires would be my choice. Something to consider.. ~ And R250 BS Duravis. 50 dollars per tire cheaper and just as good or better than Ribs. I have used both. Chris Agree.

RE: Ram quality & company and dealer response

Sounds like a troll with zero information on the truck he supposedly owns...

RE: Ram quality & company and dealer response

I'm not towing near the weight of the OP, but 5er weights in at 18,250#. Ive towed in the mountains and flat land. I have 17.000 miles and zero issues thus far. What truck are you towing with? What transmission and gearing? Jim

RE: bridgestone or michelin

Haven’t seen a bad review on Sailun tires since I first read about them 4 years ago. I will look at them to replace my 5er tires when it comes time. High quality tires and very affordable. Jim Jim (and/or others); I have seen all the good reports on Sailuns!! However, it appears that 110psi is the pressure requirement. (yeah realize you can/could run less) Is the indicated 110 psi correct? If so, most/some of us who switched to Ribs back when, only needed 80psi rated wheels (which in most cases didn't require new wheels). :@..:h ~ Believe you're right...Don't think they have an 80psi E rated tire. If not wanting to pay for wheels, I'd go with the RIBS. Thanks Buddy, Jim

RE: bridgestone or michelin

They are both very good . I went with The Michelin RIBS when I had a 5er that used E rated tires. Jim

RE: Quality getting any better?

I wonder why Airstream won't make a high-quality large RV? I guess because it would cost a million dollars. Don't forget that about half of what you pay for an Airstream is for the name alone. $60k for a 30' TT with NO slide? What a joke, especially for something that's not much better than the next brand. Lyle Agree. Having been through quite a few Airstreams over the years and I believe they are well made, but WAYYYYY over priced for no more than they offer. Even if a little better quality, the pricing is ridiculous. I almost believe Airstream has hyped the brand SOO much, that some people figure the higher price means its worth every penny.. I personally think they are over priced for what they give you. Jim.

RE: Quality getting any better?

Dan, you’re right... Quality would improve with the right competition. .. or some of these businesses/ manufacturers would go out of business because they don’t understand the meaning of incorporating quality processes and checks into the manufacturing process. Jim

RE: Quality getting any better?

I have a new 2018 GD and no, the quality is not getting better. Not in my book anyway. You are correct, sad to say.
