RE: Found it somewhat rude.

Enough of this. Every day another post complaining about everyday life. It happens, move on. X2, I so agree. gets old fast. All the 'poor old me'--some 'all about me' person got in MY 'all about me' way :( ahhhh they were doing their thing, you just happened to be behind it :) get over it definitely. If you think it gets old. Again. You don't have to read or respond. Stop your whining. Get over it.

RE: Benefits of purchasing RV from Camping World

Actually. the only benefit is the Good Sam membership. but it is only as good as the number of GCs in your area that accept it, and they are getting fewer, and fewer. So in reality, there are no extra benefits to buying from camping world, other than you will pay more.

RE: Found it somewhat rude.

Enough of this. Every day another post complaining about everyday life. It happens, move on. you, and your fellow cry babies didn't have to read it. You didn't have to post on it. so WHY are YOU on here complaining about everyday life. Deal with it and go on. Could be his telling about a rude stupid camper would cause some one else to NOT be so rude and stupid.

RE: Double Towing in NC

does anyone know if there are restrictions in the state of NC about towing doubles, im looking at hooking up a jet ski trailer behind the 5th wheel and don't seem to see anything about it being a law. you could check with your local RV dealer as well. Most have a copy of the towing laws as they apply to RVs/. The dealer I used, looked in his book, and told us NC did not allow it.

RE: KOA Myrtle Beach, SC?

Just so you will know. It is NOT on the beach. It is several blocks, and a busy 6 lane highway back.

Mequire's cleaner wax should take care of it.

RE: Newbie - confused about hitch weight

Yes you need a new WD hitch and remove the Ford one if its not.... Ford only supplies the receiver, NOT the WDH. It is a class III/IV. A heavier receiver may be needed

RE: Newbie - confused about hitch weight

Terryallan Sorry, its a 5.4L. Hit the wrong #. My GVWR is 7050 and the only payload in the truck will be myself and the tongue weight. OK. so you might be OK on the GVWR. But you may just need to upgrade the receiver. However. Before you do. Load the TT for camping, and weigh the tongue to be sure. Also while the WDH does distribute the tongue weight across all axles. It is still technically on the ball. So the receiver has to have the capacity to carry it. BTW. My APEX has a dry weight of 4811LB, and sleeps 10. Loaded ready to camp it is in the 6000lb range.

RE: Newbie - confused about hitch weight

While I seriously doubt you will add 1700lbs to your TT. You will prolly be over on your GVWR. Are you going to carry any people? , such, as spouse, or children. Remember their weight counts toward the GVWR of the truck, and the GCVWR, meaning your weight over 150lb and their weight takes away from the towing capacity of the truck. So you really don't have a max tow cap of 8600lb once you get in the truck. Another question that jumped right out at me. What style F150 has a 5.8 V8? Never seen one. Except in the older 150s. Been wrong befor

RE: Stick with truck camper or go for RV?

Remember. Your truck camper is also an RV / recreational vehicle. Actually ALL campers are RVs. Motorhomes are just a different kind of RV.

RE: Ram takes the lead.

You're not going to catch me in a light duty truck with a 30K trailer behind me with friction style brakes. You're talking an area that requires a medium size truck with air brakes-- . UH. Maybe you want to re phrase that. The air activates the FRICTION brakes to stop a vehicle. Still off a bit ,air keeps the brake shoes away from the drums. Spring activated- air released. BUT. they are still FRICTION. That was my point. And I did know that about the losing air thing. when the buzzer goes off. it stops.

RE: Does my 2014 ford f250 need an isolator?

You need to install the fuse and the relay under the hood. The relay shuts off the power to the 7pin when you turn the key off. Actually the relay provides charging to the camper battery while the key is on, but only while the key is on.

RE: No RV'er wave?

Many of them are too sacred to let go of the wheel, or to look across the lane. It's all they can do to hold on.:E

RE: So all of you 1500 haters

Any trailer set up incorrectly can sway, regardless of tow vehicle. Exactly.

RE: So all of you 1500 haters

We were driving up 321 earlier running 70 MPH. A 3500 with what looked like a 28' toy hauler passed us. We watched it as it SWAYED, wiggled, wondered around on the road, and nearly went in the ditch. So you see, It does not matter what you tow with. If not done correctly. It will sway. Having a 2500, or 3500 is NO magic elixir. My 30' TT is dead still behind my F150. I would not be in that 3500 with that TT hooked to it. It was too scary You IMHO have too much tail for the dog! I truly hope you don't ever have to say "you were right". It's not a pretty picture when you come to a stop and you have just rolled over and are idling towards the traffic that was just behind you, I know from personal experience it scares the he!! out of you. Really think so. I'm 2000lbs under my tow capacity, In fact I'm under ALL my weights. My TT does not sway in any conditions, Like when passing, or being passed by large trucks. Yes I can feel it in a strong wind, but so can everyone else. Maybe it doesn't sway because it is setup correctly. That is the answer. Appears maybe yours was not. I hope you learned to do it right after your accident.

RE: WD hitch

Sh410 & everyone else thanks so much for the great info. I will have to work on the WD hitch and get it level.No, don't try to get it level. As previously stated -- try to get the front end back to the unhitched height. Get the front end right, and the rear end will take care of itself -- perhaps about 1" below the unhitched height. Ron Yep. that is how you do it. However IF after you adjust the hitch. The trailer sits pretty high or low in the front. You may need to raise or lower the ball on the shank. You do want the TT to run reasonably level.
