RE: Do you level under only one axle?

It depends on how far off is the level. Boards under two axles raises the rig one bubble and under one axle only half a bubble. Half a bubble means I level enough. Full bubble means adding a board.

RE: Do you level under only one axle?

Both axles, same side.

RE: Bought a new 2014 Silverado 1500 w/max tow pkg

The one I ordered is with the 5.3 liter motor. It does seem to be scarce.

Bought a new 2014 Silverado 1500 w/max tow pkg

The truck in my signature has been costing me $ in repairs & expensive maintanance for too long now. 16 spark plugs every 30K miles, many tie-rod ends (& I don't crank the wheels while standing still), 20" tires, power steering leaks, A short in the dash making the lights flicker, replaced original fog lights because original mounts broke..... Never owned a GM truck, but everything I see about the 2014 Silverados looks promising including better fuel mileage. My Dodge only ever gives me a mixed driving non-towing MPG of about 11. Towing about 8 mpg. Non-towing hwy was a solid 16mpg. I still only expect around 9-10 towing but that would be better than the 8 I get now & I never tow faster than 63 mph. When I go camping it's time to relax & that includes the drive to my destination. New truck is still 500 miles from my dealer but there are only 5 w/max tow pkg within 500 miles of here so I must wait a few days. Any words of wisdom from any other 2014 Silverado owners?

RE: What jack do you use in case of a flat?

12 ton bottle jack. I know, a little overkill.

More new alum skinned campers than fiberglass

Went to an RV show last week & noticed the majority of these new campers are aluminum skinned rather than fiberglass/filon skinned. Has anyone else noticed this trend in new TT's?

RE: Who will buy the old pickups in a few years?

I doubt they'll get much smaller unless you're happy pulling a 30'TT with a truck the size of the Chevy Colorado. Adequate power or not, you still need the weight & size of a full size truck for anything more than a small TT. Ok, who will be the first to upload the picture of that 5er with it attached to the roof of a VW Bug?

RE: Ran my Batteries Dry

Upgrade your battery while you're at it. A longer box will house a Group 29 battery. I just did & went from a 100 min reserve capacity to a 212 min reserve capacity battery.

Update on stolen battery

Recap: Last week some #*!"^!# decided he needed my camper battery more than I did & stole it along with the battery box. They also cut the battery cables as well as my power tongue cable. Spent Sat morning getting a new battery & box as well as a few other items needed to replace it. Due to rain Sat afternoon, I didn't do anymore with it. Sun morning I started working on splicing in additional cable & connectors. The old box was held in place with 4' lg HD zip ties. The new box will be bolted down. Sat night I did some looking on the internet for some type of locking device. Found what looked like a nice locking device by B&D RV. Ordered it Sat night. It was shipped from Salt Lake City, UT to Niagara Falls, NY & was delivered to my door Monday. I just finished test fitting it & this thing is GREAT. Perfect fit. When replacing my Group 24 battery, I upgraded it to a Group 29 battery (Interstate Battery). The battery box is longer but the distance around it, top to bottom didn't change. Yes there are better devices out there, but Im just a poor working slob that just can't afford to spend $300 for this. We currently have lots of medical bills that need to be dealt with first. Just trying to get by.......

RE: Now this is downsizing!

My brother & sister in law have one that they pull with a 3 wheeled Can-Am Spider. They love it.

RE: Someone just stole my battery

May also just opt to remove the battery when not in use. Thieves can't steal what isn't there to steal.

RE: Someone just stole my battery

You're lucky it was just the battery. A local here went to the storage yard to retrieve his nearly new C for a family trip only to find it sitting on blocks missing all 6 tires and wheels. After the tire service showed up and installed his new rubber he discovered the propane tank was gone too. The propane tanks were already locked on with a lock thru the T handle to the bracket so it can't be unscrewed without first removing the lock. maybe time for a better lock tho. Off to buy replacements.

RE: Someone just stole my battery

Four words...... Torklift Power Armor Box. LINK Thieves are cowards and skulking opportunists......make it tough for them and they scurry away. As nice & secure as it may be, it's just not in the budget. I will put a B&D locking bracket on it. This happened in my driveway, not some storage facility where it's out of sight & mind.

Someone just stole my battery

They cut all the cables including the power tongue jack, & took the entire battery box. Tomorrow I get replacements but won't install until I get the B&D battery strap lock that I also just ordered. People are scum... present company excluded.
