RE: Anyone have a car topper boat or kayak when towing a 5er?

Portaboat is a great option.

RE: Maxxis Tires Report

I've owned two sets of Maxxis tires and they were both fantastic. Any tire manufacturer can fail...my last set of Michelin tires were the worst set of tires I have ever owned on my car. Lots of folks swear by them though so surely my experience was unique. Maxxis is no different. The warranty is pretty good and they will stand behind the product. For me, the Maxxis M8008 is the only ST trailer tire I will put on my trailers. I would probably step up to LT tires before I did anything else. I do not think folks really understand how much of a beating trailer tires take. Curbing, sidewall srubbing from turning too tight... unbalanced loads....overloaded tires...too much speed...old age...great lack of use followed by a sudden demand to roll at 65-75 MPH for 10-12 hours or more...life is rough for a trailer tire Thanks!

RE: Wireless proportional brake controllers

Some TV's can't have a traditionally brake controller installed. Something like he BMW X5 or something like that. The Prodigy RF is one of the only controllers you can use. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Looking at 2017 Silverado 1500, your opinion?

My friend has a similar truck..2014 NHT with the 5.3...it has just a few lbs under 2000 lbs of payload. He doesn't tow or haul but it's really a fantastic truck. I would have no problem pulling a 8k lb trailer with that truck. I overtrucked when I upgraded from a F150 to a CC Dually for my 7,700 GVWR TT...I have sworn to myself to only get what I need because too much truck is a PITA most of the time...especially the LB CC Dually I had. Matter of fact I am leaning hard towards a heavy half like the truck you are looking at or a F150 with the Max Tow and max payload features... I want a truck I can live with day in and day out and not just every now and the ...I'm not to the point in my life where a dedicated TV works...I simply do not have enough money to afford a 45k vehicle I drive 3-4 times per year JMHO based on experience. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: New tow vehicle

My .04.5 5.9L Cummins has only had one engine item go bad in the last almost 13 years and 199K miles. That was a water pump. Pretty cheap if you ask me. My dad has put about 4-5k in 03 Ram Cummins this year. 250k ish mikes. Probably about 10k total in this truck that he has owned for about 10 years. Excluding purchase price. They all need some $$ after a while and the Cummins is not immune. OP..congrats! And please post pics when you can! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: iPad mini 2 0r 4

I just went from an IPad Mini 1 to an iPad Air 2 and I am very happy with the switch. I bought a Samsung Tab 4 and was plain disasatisfied with it. I gave it to my son. While apps may physically load on it you need the horsepower to run them smooth. Also the expandable memory is not what you think...yea you can get a micro SD card on SOME android tabs to "expand the memory" but what is not always up front is that some apps will only let you download to the device memory and not the SD card. Plus my SD card corrupted and I lost all my apps data and my pics that were on the SD card...real bummer. Some apps for android are good but there are a lot that don't work very well. I'm back with my "restrictive"...mobile computer that works great and has a ton of memory...I bought the 64 GB version... BTW split screen multitasking is fantastic on iOS 10 for the Air 2, slide over is great, the widgets are great and customizable. I've heard that argument before about android being more customizable...I guess so, not really sure what that means...you can put a google search bar in the middle of the screen and a fancy clock in the middle of the screen...not a deal breakers IMHO My IPad Mini was supported by the parent company for four years with regular updates...hard to find another mobile device company to do that for that long. Android has its place for sure and is very popular...it's just not for me. Between the iPad mini 2 and the iPad mini 4 I would spend the extra $$ on the Mini 4. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Is it ok to use Spray Nine to clean Gray Water tank?

Just fill it up with water...dump it...pour some antifreeze in the tank when you winterize (maybe half a gallon?) and be done. No need for all that other stuff... JMHO Jeremiah

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

Try posting through the Woodalls.com portal. Sometimes RV.net has issues with special characters that the Woodall portal doesn't have. Can't remember what the exact issue was...I think it's an exclamation point or something like that. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2016 ram 3500 dully??? gaser or diesel???

Post a CL add for a three or four year old dually gasser and see how many calls you get. Chris I bought my 99 Gasser V10 CC Dually for a song because of that gas motor. I'm very happy to save 15k on a gas truck :B Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Andersen Ultimate with Lippert 1621 HD Pin Box

I'm not satisfied that the pin box the OP had would not have deflected with a standard Fifth wheel hitch either. It seems very weakly built. Maybe not for the entire model but for that particular Pin Box...seems really weak. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Crack spreading

How do they repair fiberglass siding like that? Isn't the wall one piece?

RE: Crack spreading

I agree with the frame failure..time for a trip back to the factory.

RE: Curt 5th wheel adapter

There are a lot of positive reviews on Amazon and Etrailer. I believe it's rated for 20k lbs so use it and enjoy your rig. Do you have the B&W Turnover ball or the Curt gooseneck hitch in the bed? You will need to know the brand of your Gooseneck hitch before you order your X5 adaptor. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: weight distribution hitch opinion

I prefer to get my spring bars as close to the actual loaded tongue weight of the camper as possible. The reason is shock loading (not sure what the proper term is here) but as you go over bumps and dips in the road the spring bar tends to load and unload depending on the circumstance. Remember we set our hitches up on a level ground but when we drive it's hardly ever level. A closely matched spring bar will give a better ride than a bar that is too stiff for the loaded tongue weight. I also prefer round bar WD hitches...I like how they ride compared to my trunnion hitches. Thanks! Jeremiah
