RE: No heat

Were you trying to run the heat to make sure it worked even though it was warm inside? In other words, was the fan set to "lo" or "hi" so the fan ran non-stop but the heat did not ignite because it was set at 72 but it was much warmer in the camper. Just checking the simple things first.

Tire Shine

I ask this question here on the RV forum because so many seem to have experience with the 303 protectant stuff. Plus, I want to make sure the reliability of my truck and RV tires is priority. That being said, I'm sort of stuck on something. I like my wheels and tires looking good. To me, dirty tires is like wearing a nice suit with dirty, faded shoes. It just takes away from everything. When I was a young teenager (early 80's) who washed his Z-28 almost everyday, I used a product called Westley's Silicone Tire Shine. It was a silicone based tire shine that came in a can. It was awesome. It would shine the tires really well without any sling-off to the rest of the car. But the best part was, the more you used it, the more it would penetrate the surface of the tire so when you washed your tires again, they would look really dark with no fade but they didn't have that glossy look. Just a nice, deep semi-gloss look. But I guess when Black Magic took over Bleche-White tire cleaner, they dropped the Silicone Tire Shine. I have some product I bought at the auto detail supplier but one makes it super glossy and it slings off bad. The other called Mr. Natural looks good but the first time you wash the tires after, it comes right off and the tires are very dull and faded looking. I have the OEM Michelins on my F-350 and G614s on the Vengeance. As I said, I want to maintain reliability first and foremost. So I worry about trying some experiment such as a straight silicone spray like Liquid Wrench makes. I see multiple 303 products on Amazon. Is one preferable for tires? Is there something better?

RE: East Coast Gas Shortage

Several stations in the Raleigh area are completely out of gas.

RE: GREAT Mysteries of RV'n

8. How in the world we still have rotted floors because of a slow roof leak? This should have been solved decades ago.

RE: Ram Box Creating a Problem

Quick update. Looks to be a Sidewinder pin box. Wild looking set-up. I've heard of them but never knew much about them. Any negatives?

Ram Box Creating a Problem

I have a friend who is supposed to pick up his Grand Design 388M tomorrow. They were installing his slider hitch in the bed of his Ram today. But he got a call and they said since he has a Ram Box, they have to install a set-up where the pivot point is at the connection of the pin box and the camper itself instead of down at the hitch. I have never heard of this. Does this sound legit. I didn't know a Ram box existed and I certainly have never heard of this type of hitch.

RE: Trailer Life Article about GCWR...etc.

Can you imagine if Trailer Life told people how to exceed their GCWR safely? They'd take practically every bit of blame for any crash, whether or not it had anything to do with the exceeded GCW. GCWR is exceeded every day by a lot of people. I do it with my set-up. But for a publication to say its OK would be crazy. All it would take was one wreck. Side note. Mods may as well go ahead and shut this one down. We know where its going.

RE: Keeping Resridential Refrigerator Doors Closed

I use two zip ties around both handles. So far, six trips and 1500 miles and they haven't opened up yet. Cheap and easy.

RE: Feedback on XLR and Fuzion

I own neither one. When we were shopping this past winter, it came down to the Fuzion, XLR, and Vengeance. We went with Vengeance. Not because its any better but it had some things the other two didn't regarding the floorplan we wanted. But we loved all three. I'm a big Forest River fan. Been very happy with their campers. I love XLRs; especially with the full body paint. FR also will give you a second year of warranty for $250. But the shop of the big toy hauler dealer we usually work with recommends the Fuzions when it comes to service. They said they're easier to work with on warranty stuff. Also, I assume all Fuzions typically come with G rated Sailun tires. A nice addition.

RE: Does anyone know if a 2011 Palomino Sabre is a good 5er

Like zackyboys, we too had a Sabre TT. I believe it was a 2010 model and it had the rear master bedroom. If I didn't prefer a toy hauler so much and was going to just a regular 5th wheel, a Sabre would absolutely be one I would consider.

RE: Heartland vs. Montana

One more opinion. Hands down a Montana before any model Heartland offers. Just my .02.

RE: Rear Suspension Air Bags for my truck

I'm a fan of air bags. Had them on my last three Super Duties; including the one I have now. I was actually able to get my Ford dealer to install the ones I have now. I love them. Air Lift 5000s is what I've used. 4 Wheel Parts carries them and if you prefer, they can also install. As for the compressor, I recommend that as well. They're making them wireless nowadays so its easier to install because you don't have to run the gauge and stuff into the cab. They use a remote control.

RE: Difference between 4.30 & 3.55 gears

The F450 will be able to hold 6th with the heavy load in tow, while the F350 will be in 5th gear most of the time. The F350 DRW does tend to have a better payload than the F450, when otherwise comparing apples to apples. Actually, I haven't seen this. I can set the cruise at 70 mph and it rarely ever leaves 6th. Makes traveling nice. In all honesty, my 2011 F450 and my 2015 F350 tow just about the same.

RE: Looking at Fort Wilderness for Thanksgiving

I don't think there's a waiting list. As they said, just keep calling or by internet. Ocean Lakes is booked solid for the weekends of October because they do Halloween weekends. I started a month ago checking every morning for reservations the weekend of October 22. Nothing for weeks. Then last Monday morning I went on and a spot popped up. Evidently, someone had just cancelled. You just have to be persistent and have a little bit of luck.

That sounds absolutely awesome. I have ten years and two months to go. Then we're traveling the country. Have a great time. Congrats to your wife.

RE: Towing over trucks max tow

Funny how many people post about tire failures with their RVs but we really never hear about a truck failure because someone exceeded some of the truck's ratings. Let's agree to disagree and let this one go.
