RE: Help moving trailer

You could buy AAA membership with RV coverage (if it is offered in your area) and have them tow it for ya. Not necessarily. Not all of the tow companies that AAA contracts have capability for fifth wheels. I was stuck on I294 in Chicago and after 2 1/2 hours AAA called me back and said they didn't have anybody with the equipment.

RE: EZ pass

There is a federal law that requires all states to honor other state passes by I think the end of this year. Do you know where I can find information on this? I have both I-Pass and Sunpass on my truck and I want to stay ahead of this and not get charged twice.

RE: 5th wheel hitch rails vs. camper

I use a sheet of 3/4" plywood with 2 X 4 spacers underneath. The 2 X 4 s are the same hieght as the hitch rails.

RE: Yuma: Shangrila La vs Las Quintas Oasis or?

Never been to Shanggrial but have visited friends at Las Quintas. Las Quintas is also a nice park, our friends have returned to it several times. They have a 36' fifth wheel and they always had enough room.

RE: Short bed with no slider hitch

I have a slider but can't use it. The pin box is too long and tears up the tailagte if Ido.

RE: Montana 5th wheel

We bought a Montana High Country in 2012 and have been very disappointed in the interior quality. Cabinet door panels fell out, blind tensions were incorrect and had to be adjusted by me. The list goes on and on. And then to aggravate the situation, we parked the unit for 2 1/2 months after we bought it (not camping situation after all) and then when we took it in to get things fixed, the dealer told us that Keystone only reimbursed them for fit and finish problems for 90 days and they really didn't want to fix those problems at their cost. We were told by friends not to get a Montana because the workmanship was second rate. I wished we would have listened.

RE: Safety Gas Cans

I just loved the venting method. Solves a lot of problems. Sort of off topic but it was my understanding that the EPA required all those changes not for your safety but because they have fixed so many sources of air pollution that gas cans without pour caps and open vents became a leading cause of air pollution. )Just how much pollution can gas cans cause?)

We stayed at the Fort Beale RV park 5 years ago.

RE: Replacing the Towing Mirrors?

I don't know about the top mirror but to replace the bottom mirror you have to break the mirror to get to the mounting screw. Have you considered talking the local Chevy dealer? I got more help from the parts department that the service center.

RE: Paint Issues With Grey 5th Wheels.

Mine is a 2011, I spend most winters in AZ and I have no problems with my cap fading. The front decal is starting to show its age though.

RE: Propane and battery locks

Just for the record, I don't lock up either. The propane may be vulnerable but the batteries are so hard to get to I can't imagine anyone trying.

RE: I've lost my love of camping with the pop-up

I agree with the delegation - at 13, 13, and 10, there is no reason that the kids can't be helping. Heck, they should be able to do it all while you sit back with a beer... :) I remember camping with a pop up as a kid. We would pull into a campground and Dad would pay for the site and then disappear, visiting up and down the row. He would reappear after we kids had the camper set up and unpacked and Mom had supper on the table.

RE: Internet on the road

It's been suggested several times already, but I think a prepaid hot spot plan similar to a prepaid phone is the way to go. I got a thing called "Internet on the Go" at Walmart several years ago. The device was around $80 and I pay about $20 a year for all the data I need. I don't see the exact same device anymore but I think that Walmart still has similar plans available.

RE: I've lost my love of camping with the pop-up

I agree with delegation, but it sounds like you main beef is the bikes. The method you described for hauling them seems awkward. Maybe leave the bikes home. Or how about one of those bike racks that hold the bikes upright on the popup. A fairly common method of hauling them.

RE: Restricted propane Flow

Just so everyone knows, I found the problem. By switching leads into the cross over regulator, I figured the problem was somewhere in the feed from the right tank. After "throwing some parts at the problem," I found the crossover pipe has a small adapter / check valve leading into the main regulator. It was partially blocked. Everything works now. Thanks for the help.

Restricted propane Flow

I am having trouble with the flow from the right hand side propane tank in my fifth wheel. (This is when the left tank is empty.)Everything will work off of the right tank except the furnace. When the furnace comes on the system shuts down as if the tank were empty. I can shut down the furnace, wait for system pressure to build up and everything will work, except the furnace. The system has a small red regulator on the right tank side and I know the tank pigtails have some type of leak restriction built in. So my question is what is the likely culprit, the pigtail of the little regulator? Obviously I have no idea why the system has the little red extra regulator.

When I asked the factory about a schematic for mine, they said no way they would give me one. From what I have seem inside a typical construction, there probably isn't a written schematic per se. They throw these things together willy nilly and no two are exactly alike. If there were a standard schematic, why would they hand write the circuit labels on the breaker panel?

RE: Mountaineers versus Montana's by Keystone

We have a 38' Montana High Country and have been severely disappointed in the workmanship. The dealer had to re-caulk all of the interior cabinet door panels because they fell out. The cable slides needed several adjustments, just a lot of little aggravating things. What year build? 2012 Model Year

RE: Do you have more than 1 ??

Our primary RV is a 38' Montana High Country fifth wheel. This fall we bought a used 6 1/2' Sunlite truck camper for our trip to Alaska next summer. I couldn't see dragging that behemoth 9,000 miles just to have something to sleep in. Who knows, when we get home next summer we may decide we like it so much we keep it for similar adventures.
