RE: tv hook up

Hook it to what? Roof top antenna? Get a short piece of coax cable and connect it to antenna in on the back of the TV. The other engd goes to the powered antenna port. Raise the antenna turn on the amplifier and start searching for q signal

RE: 2006 5vr Low or No Road Use would you buy

Buy the second one. Brake and bearing service, new tires and spring bushings should take care of the running gear. How it was stored and maintained are key.

On a refer shelf. That is the most important thing

RE: sat tv

Just be aware there is no domes that can receive Direct HD. So with that you will be saddled with older SD equipment

RE: Hot water pressure issue

Sticky or stuck check valve. Which should be located at or near the hot out port of the HW tank

RE: Kelso to Cannon Beach

Cross the longview bridge and take 30 west 101 south. Acceptable route, but the last time I was on 30 it was pretty rough in spots

RE: Tuner or Performance Chips - Do they work?

Basically NO. Intake and exhaust mods might help a little but you will never recover the cost of parts in fuel savings

RE: Can someone explain in lamens term

Before you start looking load it up like your going camping and go to the scales. To that add 250 pounds for hitch 350 if its a short bed. Subtract that from the trucks GVWR found on the drivers door post. Now you have what you need to know.

RE: Sierra Wireless Gateway

You dont need a wireless gateway. All you need is some method of getting your internet. Either via something like a Verizon air card or wifi enabled smart phone. Either will become a wifi router for your devices.

RE: New to 5th Wheel and looking for information

That old of a truck get a dually. The older trucks did not have the payload capacities that newer ones have so you really need to upsize more than say if you got a 2004 or newer model. If you were to end up in the Dodge camp be sure to get the manual transmission. If you go Ford, avoid the 6.0L diesel like the plague. If you go GM do not look at diesels. The older ones were terrible. Instead look for a big block gas motor. Of course those will eat you alive in gas bills.

RE: towing poundage//correct??

GVW is more than the sum of its parts. To correctly determine how much you can safely load/tow you need to load the vehicle up like your going on a trip and drive across a set of scales. Look on the drivers door post, take the rated GVWR and subtract scaled weight from that. More than likely you will find that your available payload will be around 800 pounds or possible even less.

RE: 5th Wheel Reliability

Arctic Fox seems to get high ratings. Personally my Cedar Creek has been extremely reliable in the nine years of its life. Your going to get lots of "mine is best" comments from people with questions like this.

RE: Redmond OR to Portland OR - US26??

26 is the best option into portland area. Especially if your going to the east side. If your going to the west side 22/I5 might be a better option. 26 is an easy climb. Remember your only climbing maybe 1500 feet in elevation

RE: Why should I switch to golf cart 6v batteries

Depends. Do you dry camp a lot? If not stick with the cheaper 12 volt combination battery you have. And quit listening to others.

RE: Bend, Oregon.... where to stay?

Tumalo state park is just west of town. But this time of year getting into any state park without reservations is next to impossible. There is a privare park ysed to be KOA east of Sisters that is pretty nice. As for shat to do? Search the forums. There are lots of duscussions on things to places to see already.

RE: Battery Shut Off Switch

Smoke alarms are generally powered by a 9 volt battery not your house battery
