RE: Replace Thetford Aqua Magic Style II with Dometic 320?

I upgraded the JUNK Thetford in our 2012 Montana 2 years ago to the Dometic 320 w/sprayer and last Fall after negotiating our 2018 Montana purchase I told dealer OK if he would install Dometic 320 w/sprayer in new unit. Best place to purchase 2 years ago was PPL Motorhomes. $198.00 no tax and no shipping cost.

RE: Backing-In from SINGLE Lane Road

Why not investigate buying the adjoining property and putting in an RV pad?

RE: Exhaust brake thoughts

Some of you installed the Pac Brake yourself ?? Was this difficult? A local shop quoted me $650 labor charge and I don't know if it's worth this much to have it done. I'm not helpless or clueless when it comes to mechanical and electrical issues and may just do it myself. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I did install mine myself but was 10 years younger and had access to a friend's shop with a good lift. Would not want to do it without the lift myself. Took about 6 hours if I recall correctly working by myself. Not difficult at all.

RE: 4 years 6.7Powerstroke update

webe...curious what the issues were, how many miles and what type of driving conditions? I'm a big believer that new diesels don't do well if driven on short trips around town, mine is straight highway driving and been rock solid. First one was the EGR Cooler Core clogged and the second was the DEF Pump.

RE: Wanted: Wastewater Tote Opinions/Critiques

I have a 32 gallon Barker that is 10 years old and 7.5 of those years are full timing and at least 75% of time in parks with no sewer connection. It doesn't still look new but it does work as good as new. I have friends that have gone through 3 or 4 Thetfords in that amount of time. I upgraded the tires to pneumatic when I bought it and have had to replace them 3 times due to weather aging and had to replace the discharge valve 1 time.

RE: Exhaust brake thoughts

On my previous 2007 Ram 5.9 CTD I installed the PacBrake PRXD and was VERY happy with it and it worked flawlessly for 5 years. Truck was a 4 speed auto. Bought off e-bay from a guy called chucksahunter and he is a good e-bayer.

RE: Dish Pay as you go

DISH Network uses three satellites. True if you are using a Western Arc LNB for 110, 119, & 129 but if using Eastern Arc LNB like I am there are only 2 (61.5 & 72).

RE: 2500HD or 3500HD

When you have a choice ALWAYS chose a 1 ton over a 3/4 ton regardless your brand of choice!

RE: Record high price for used 2018 Ram 2500?

I would consider letting my 2012 F350 PSD go for just $74k! :E

RE: 4 years 6.7Powerstroke update

Over the past 8 months or so my 2012 6.7 has had out of warranty emissions issues to the tune of $1800.00 for 2 issues. Had the first one corrected for 1000.00 and when the second came up I decided to make it shed some weight and had a pacemaker implanted. She is now VERY healthy and doesn't eat as much either!

RE: deezee aux fuel tank

Something is not right with yours. I have had a 40 gal Dee Zee gravity flow in my 2012 F350 PSD for 3 years with no problems. I can tow our 16,800 lb Montana with the valve open and the flow will keep up with trucks consumption which is 11.5 mpg average.

RE: Leveling with 6 point leveling system

Less strain on the entire unit if you level first.

RE: Question 4 those with Auto Leveling System

Will your new fiver have hydraulic or electric levelers? Mine has hydraulic and is very stable as it came from factory. Have talked with a few friends who have the electric and aren't as happy with theirs. The electric is also much slower extending and retracting.

RE: Which B&W Hitch?

I pull our 2018 Montana 3791RD with a 2012 F350 with short bed without a slider and have no problems. I think the factory will tell you that you need one to avoid any liability issues should you make contact between the truck and fiver AND the fact that they should make more $ because the sliders sell for more. Do what you are comfortable with.

RE: Good Canopy for rainy days

All of them will allow water to pool right out of the box. This modification has worked for me on 2 or 3 of them. 1. Set the canopy up and determine where the water will pool on it. 2. Go to Harbor Freight or good hardware store and purchase a brass grommet kit. 3. Install small (1/4 or 1/2") grommets where the water pools. Should take only 1 or 2 on each of the 4 sides. This will allow the water to drain and not collapse the canopy. The grommet kits are very inexpensive.

RE: Anyone own a Everest and replaced the Tail lights with LED

why spend the time and money? a 1157 bulb was designed for your tailight and the present light meets DOT standards It's not like you need to save power or the fixture makes too much heat. Now if it was interior lighting, thats a differant story, where you can save battery power and get much needed light. Forgetaboutit. Totally agree. I trucked for 20 years and worked at night most of that time. Rarely saw campers traveling at night. Why change them out if you are parked somewhere at night anyway?

RE: Samsung RF18 leaking - fixed

I know a lot of us motorhome owners have swapped out our Norcold's for Samsung RF18 refrigerators. I have had my Samsung for a couple of years now and noticed water leaking into the bottom of the fridge compartment under the crisper drawers and freezing. I searched the internet and found this was a common problem with french door Samsung refrigerators and there are several YouTube videos on how to curtail the problem. I won't bore you with details put I performed the easy fix and so far so good. Now to fix the sticks and bricks fridge. YouTube Video I wasn't aware you had to be a motorhome owner to have a Samsung RF18 refrigerator. I guess I'm in serious trouble since my Montana fiver came from the factory with one!? :W

RE: Nomadland by Jessica Bruder

Nomadland by Jessica Bruder is on sale by Audible, today only, at $3.95. I don't know anything about it but it is apparently about Workampers: "From the beet fields of North Dakota to the wilderness campgrounds of California to an Amazon warehouse in Texas, people who once might have kicked back to enjoy their sunset years are hard at work. Underwater on mortgages or finding that Social Security comes up short, they're hitting the road in astonishing numbers, forming a new community of nomads: RV and van-dwelling migrant laborers, or "workampers". " I haven't heard about any beet pickers on the forum tho, heh. Audible-audio book We have been retired and full timers since Sep 2010 and never done ANY workkamping but many have to include beet harvesting. Google is your friend. LOL.
