RE: Toileting and the overnight stay

Keep a gallon of water in the bathroom and use it to flush. Don't need to turn on water pump and wake up your partner. Do you also put your foot into the toilet and pee down your leg so the "tinkle" sound won't wake your partner?

RE: Difference between 2 surge protectors?

A big YES for the EMS that protects against both low and high voltage and gives constant readouts. Expensive but worth it as inverters and other electronics are even more expensive to either repair or replace. Have used the high end EMS for several years and really like it. Agreed! I have had mine for 8 years and it has saved my bacon at least 6 times. Mostly low voltage issues. Progressive Industries 50 amp with remote display.

RE: Wiggle

Yep you read that right,, wiggle..we just got into our new big fifth wheel and find that it wiggles alot more than our little one did.. It has the 6 pt leveling system, but the back has the slide outs..so wondering if all of you owners have any ideas on how to get some of that out.. we tried extra jacks under that back, but that didnt help.. we are open to suggestions that have worked for you.. thank you.. Just another thought..........Is your 6 pt system hydraulic or electric? Lippert makes them both and from what I understand the hydraulic is much better.

RE: Wiggle

I do hear from the newer fifths owners with the auto systems complain of the wiggle they were excepting to not have and not as level as they thought the result would be. Sometimes I can see they are not level. chevman If "they" are so far off-level that you can see it something IS definitely wrong. The owner should be proactive and manually level the fiver and then recalibrate the leveling system electronics. That is what I did when system was new and it hasn't failed in 4 years to be within 0.1 degrees level both side-to-side and front-to-back. I check it each time with a bubble level and the system's built-in display. So far as wiggle goes it is almost eliminated by using 2" boards under each leveling pad as I stated in my previous reply to this thread. I feel it is totally unnecessary to add additional hardware such as JTs or scissors jacks to the factory system if it is properly used.

RE: Wiggle

We are full timers and have the 6 point system. I have had great success by placing 2x10x12" treated boards under each stabilizer regardless of the surface we are setting up on. We have been doing this for 4 years and although it does not eliminate ALL movement it is very effective. Only adds about 1 minute to set up time and have only had to replace them 1 time in the 4 years. Home Depot will cut them to any length for you for only the cost of the board.

RE: Best Way to Change Tire

Use your standard 6 point level up to raise it and change tire.

RE: Pruning Saw Extension

I recently got caught pruning some small limbs at a county owned/operated RV park. I thought they were going to put the cuffs on me! After the dust settled I was happy that I only got a VERY THOROUGH butt chewing. Won't do that again! :E

RE: Parking a Class A within 4" of a wooden fence

Maybe you shouldn't make the change. Stay with the one you are capable of handling.

RE: Montana vs. High Country

He is NOT %100 correct , Now You got the Big Sky as a Top of the line Montana that is now in the last 2-3 years a separate model now with a 100in wide body frame and it USED to be a option pkg on the Montana with Full body paint etc..,Now it is Montana Legacy that you can get full body paint as a option and then you have the regular NON Legacy Montana which used to be the Mountanier THEN you have the High Country which is ALOT lighter than the Big Sky and the Legacy and NON legacy Montana'sI believe now the Montana actually took the Big Sky's place and the High Country took the Montana's place. I believe the Big Sky is a package that you get on the Montana now like full paint. That is 100% incorrect. There is the Montana The Montana legacy package The Big Sky is a separate build The High Country is a separate build. Go to the Keystone website to look at the models and get the correct information. Re-read what Richfaa said. He said 100% INCORRECT....not 100% CORRECT. For full timing I would choose the Montana over the HC. We have been full timing in a Montana for 5 + years with no problems. I would be more concerned with selecting the correct dealer. Some will take care of you and others will leave you high and dry.

RE: Interesting Montana Concept - Huge Window on Front Cap

A TT that I had for over 10 years had a front kitchen with a window across the front. Had a shield that raised up and down. Loved it !!! Never had a leak ever anywhere on that TT. You can't hardly find a front kitchen now. Sucks !! Montana is also coming out with a front kitchen model. Was at rally and plant just last week and they showed us the floor plan. Would consider it but NO WINDSHIELD!

RE: Fulltimers....what's your favorite 5er?

Drv, Excel, Jayco, Travel Supreme I'm sure Jayco is a good unit in it's class, but it DOES NOT fit into the sale class as the others in that statement! :h

RE: Dish Network Chat

I have a coax feed from my batwing to my VIP722 DVR receiver. I then do a scan for local channels on the 722 when arriving at new location and getting dish online. Locals are then on the guide and can be recorded just like the others. I do not have to contact Dish Network this way and works just as good.

RE: RV or camping manners....

Believe it or not I've had this happen in REVERSE ! Was dumping into portable and it was close to neighbors grill (they set it up there). Right in the middle of the dumping the neighbor came out and started grilling steaks. I think I would have waited to start cooking. If he had been cooking first I would have waited. :E :R

RE: Laundry room ethics

If a person doesn't have the time to tend to their clothes they should wait until another time when they do. One person's time is just as important as another's. :E

RE: Traveling thru Alabama to Florida

This is a very pleasant drive. I have done it several times towing our 13' 3" fiver and also in a big rig 13' 6" before I retired. Have fun. Another vote for Deer Run CG.
