RE: Very early planning to full time for a yr or less - Help!

Do it. As long as both of you want it and healthy go.

RE: What is the distance from back of cab to center of hitch?

Hitch location should always be directly over the axle. Look at any class 6,7, or 8 truck and thats where they are placed.

RE: Is this enough truck?

Power wagons are not the best towing platform. They were setup as factory off road vehicles for little boys with too much money wanting factory setup. Get a standard 2500 and depending on configuration you would be good for either trailer

RE: Towing on 2010 ram 6.7 diesel

10s are good as long as the PO did all the updates. You need to drive it like you stole it

RE: Higher end brands?

Lance and,Arctic Fox are two that come to mind. Airstream of course. But who wants to pay their prices.

RE: Directv receiver settings

On the road you simply go to setup page and follow the instructions. You should practice at home first to be sure of how to do it. At home the receiver automatically finds the dish. BTW what receiver model?

RE: No power from shore

If you have a volt meter and know how to use it, you should easily be able to trace power. Just be careful, but following power to the point there is no power is pretty simple.

RE: Snow on the way for the west

4 inches of Snow on the ground south of Bend last night caused numerous accidents.

RE: Siding question?

My guess he is referring to Frilon. If you have delamination, you have serious problems. Frilon is pressure glued to a substraight, usually plywood, which is then bonded to the frame. What has probably happened is water got in, causing delamination between the plywood and frilon. There is no cheap easy fix. Wood rot, and serious mold are only your first problems. You will need serious skills to attempt a fix. Hope you did not spend much for this trailer.

RE: Towing Capacity

Mcwr? Thats a new one. What is that? As for add ons? There is absolutely NOTHING that will alter or increase the manufacturers ratings. If you choose to try stuff, air bags are probably the best. But then you have to be careful not to overload the tires or axles. Modifying them could work, but then you next worries would be wheels followed by frame strength. Where does it all end? Transmission rebuild, then front end build, then drive shaft. By that time you will have thousands invested when probably for less money you could have simply bought a newer truck with more load carrying capacity.

RE: Ford RV seat covers

Why would you look to Ford seat covers? Thry probsbly did not make the seats. Look around them a bit and find a mfg tag.

RE: Getting new 5th wheel Lots of questions!

Surge protector? Never used one, but we usually are in places with good power. Wax? McGuires RV/Marine is what many use. I like Collinite fleet wax just as well. Roof treatment? Sure why not Cover? I found it to be a pain in the arse, so never again. Auto level? None Refer? Mine is in the slide and it has always worked perfectly without fans.

RE: Short vs. Long Bed F350 SRW

Either will work. The big issue for me is bed storage. I usually carry a good bit of stuff up ahead of the hitch. With a short bed that storage space is gone. BTW I also have a folding bed cover that protects stuff up front when traveling, and covers the hitch when not.

RE: Jacking up my 5er to R/R equalizers

Believe me, attempting to do one side at a time is tough. What happens is everything goes out of alignment and trying to get the shackle bolts back in is not for the faint of heart. Your better off supporting the whole trailer, get all wheels off, then you can drop one axle at a time. Dont forget wet bolts and bronze bushings. If you have the plastic bushings they likely will already have failed.

RE: Rear Kitchen

Does your SB have shocks on the axles? If not add them.

RE: oregon 140

Last year they were rebuilding part of the hiway east of KFalls. So there could still be some delays. Other than that its a nice drive. Mostly higher elevations with two passes. The first part is sort of congested, but opens up nicely. From Lakeview which way are you headed? Goose Lake state park is a great place to stay for a night or or. Only 20A power, but nice quiet park.

RE: Looking for travel trailer for full time use

That weight your looking at is going to make for a really small or a really light weight trailer. You might consider upgrading to a 2500 series truck. At least doing that you open yourself up to the trailer you really want. As for trailers, I would look at either Northwood or Outdoors RV. Both family owned companies with a good reputation for quality and durability.

RE: Ram 2500 bed size????

Possibly. The only way around it would be a fiver cut for short bed trucks. The loss of 2 feet of bed space to me would be a deal killer
