RE: Verizon 4G mifi GB useage

RV net uses next to nothing. Video eats it up fast, even ads. Install a data monitor on your devices so you can track usage. Maybe you had some operating system updates installed.

RE: Health Care Costs

Yep .... the time has finally come for the insurance companies to pick up the tab for the newly insured health needs instead of hospital emergency rooms. I'm not sure which approach is going to cost society more in the long run. Health insurance companies profits have never been higher, as well as their stock prices. Look at the Humana buyout at $230 per share. This stock broke $100 for the first time ever less than 18 months and now is worth $230?

RE: Travel trailer Trade-in - what to do?

You must have a really long term loan to pay down so little in 4 years. Your best bet is trying to sell it yourself, pay off the shortfall (probably 4K) and start over. As for a 'special unit' that is saleman fluff talking. We bought our 2011 34 foot trailer with all the bells and whistels (power everything plus 2 slides, raised panel cabinetry, grill, flat screen, DVD, outside speakers, etc. etc) in 2010 for 25K. MSRP was 36K. We bought ours in Indiana where they are cheaper, but at 33K it sounds like you overpaid for your unit.

RE: Elevation and Routing

I use the $5 app called Topo Profiler on my IPad. Well worth the money and you can save up to 10 routes.

RE: Just got some bad news, could use some perspective.

Groover, 7-8 months to build you a new truck if you order now? What in holy heck is Ford doing?

RE: Scangauge vs Ultragauge for trans temp.

Golden, my Scangauge does everything you mentioned and more.

RE: Just got some bad news, could use some perspective.

And I just told you the 5.3l couldn't handle my 6k lb trailer. Seems to me you're asking questions that you don't want honest answers to.. Define 'couldn't handle' and maybe someone will take you seriously. My 5.4L handles my 9000 lb load just fine and my truck is heavier to boot.

RE: Just got some bad news, could use some perspective.

The Chevy 5.3 with 3.42 gears mated to the six speed tranny should work fine for you. It would be nice though if GM offered the truck with 3.73 gears. Then it would be even better. The 5.3 is considered a bullet proof engine and has been around a long time. I had one 15 years ago.

RE: Just got some bad news, could use some perspective.

I'd say goodbye and change brands. I have no patience for that kind of nonsense. Lot's of people are doing just that.

RE: equal-i-zer can't hitch with more spacer washers

Haven't looked at my manual in years, but thought it said to use 4-8 washers. I apologize if this was incorrect.

RE: Gm trucks really selling strong !!

Can't argue with the numbers. GM is smoking Ford this year.

RE: Just got some bad news, could use some perspective.

I think your only problem is that payload is always less than the brochure rating.

RE: equal-i-zer can't hitch with more spacer washers

Four washers is the minimum according to the manual.

RE: Maxxis Load D To E - Bouncy Ride

I went from C to E rated tire last year. I run them at 65 which is the max pressure for my rim. My rational is the E has two extra belts over the D and hence a stronger tire. You don't gain any load capability (which I don't need, a D tire would give be me plenty of reserve capacity) with the E at 65 vs the D at 65, but you do have a stronger tire. I have put 8000 miles on these tires and noticed no difference in ride at all.

RE: Leaking pressure release valve

Is your water heater on? Maybe it is just doing its job.

RE: Watch out for cost of Michigan State Parks

Spend tens of thousands of $ on an RV, TV and supplies. Complaining on the internet about $5 - $10 extra a night for an out-of-state charge = priceless Agreed. I grew up in Illinois and this original poster made me embarrsed to say that.

RE: The Value of a Friendly Staff - V 2.0

I checked in to a campground last year. No one in the office, please call this number. 6-7 minutes later an elderly couple comes out of the adjoining house. Had to boot the computer, probably took 10 minutes to check in. Then the gentleman shows us to our pull through site and INSISTS on helping me into the site. I said no thanks, I got it and he got all huffy and wasn't listening to me. He was literally standing 2-3 feet in front of my truck so I could hardly look into my mirrors without fear of hitting him. I stopped and yelled to him, please move out of the way and he screamed at me that this was his job. That was the most stressful check in I have had in 150 campgrounds. I like a campground with as little human interaction as possible. Be in the office, show me where my site is on a map and accept my money. That's all I need and you won't see me again.

RE: How to shift weight off front end

Seems like your weights are impossible. Steer and drive reversed somehow? The gross combined is a peformance based number, not a legal based number. You would be under gross combined with 4.10 gears.

RE: Best time to buy an RV?

The best time to buy an RV is when you find exactly what you want at a price you can live with. If you purchase strictly on price, not getting exactly what you want, you are going to be out in the long run either by not be as happy as you could be with your unit or losing money trading in the unit after a year or two.
