RE: Tires dont line up

Different rims? May have a different offset which would make it look weird.

RE: Backing Into A Fresh Camp Spot

I cut the rack off of the cougar I had. Only holds 200+- and the tire and rack is probably over 80. Not much left. Got an adjustable width hitch which worked great although to use it I needed a drop pinbox. Looks like you were a couple loads of rock short too. Also looks to be clean rock. Get some with lime in it. It helps lock the bigger pieces in place.

RE: Directv Winegard Issues

Glad I read these posts. I too have been having a hard time getting locked up sat signal with dish. Seems to be getting super finicky. I was going to to spider hunting, figuring there was probably one building webs inside the dome and somehow fouling it up.but, if parts can move around a little making it work harder to get the job done then there's more reason to do some investigating. Otherwise there isn't really any turning to a Winegard dome dish, is there?

RE: Blown in insulation?

A product like retro foam professional services may work. It's a low expansion foam and doesn't stick like the iso foam that is used to spray around doors and windows. I had the company come out and redo the insulation in my house. Pulled off a strip of siding, drilled a hole and pushed the hose down to fill bottom half and then up to fill the top half. This is between each stud. Seems to make a difference.

RE: Need advice on which generator to go with

Just got two Yamaha ef2000is and a parallel cord online for 1800 and change. (Free three day air shipping too) Used them this weekend for the fist time and was very satisfied with their output. Easier to move around than the ef2400is I just sold. And yes, with Yamaha, both generators are the same.

RE: Need help choosing my next 5th wheel please.

I'm sure Open Range has an owners forum. Find it and look for the same complaints you have seen on regular sites. It may be just one or two people who post the problems you keep reading about. A satisfied person tell an average of row people. A dissatisfied person tells an average of eleven people. Quote from a GM rep from when I worked at an auto dealership.

RE: Truxedo lo pro QT or TruXport

I have the companion and the low pro. No problems at all that are what in would call normal use. I was backing out of a drive last Saturday and had it jacked Around and at an weird angle and the wiring box on the back side of the hitch came into contact with one of the rails. Guaranteed I will be mob the box and or replacing it with something else. (I hate how cheap it looks anyway) if it wasn't the there would never have been any contact.

RE: I am stupid, I am stupid, I am stupid.........

Time to trade it in for a nicer unit. One without a split water heater. Was that an option?

RE: Generators for 5th wheel power

Just got my two ef2000is gen sets last night via UPS. Sold my2400is last week thinking I needed more power. Going to set them up this morning and see what's what. I did like the idea of two smaller generators (lighter). My wife is shorter and has difficulties helping me carry heavier things.

RE: Kitchen with Island pros and cons

We have a BC 3251ts which comes with a movable island so getting to the fridge is easy when slides are in. Also sink and bathroom and non issues. 42" TV is set directly across from theatre seating which I really like.

RE: TowMax Tires

Got rid of mine before it even came home. Had just gotten LTs on the trade in earlier last year and I said trade the tires out or no deal last fall. Done deal. Happy camper.

RE: Dually vs Straight

I've got both and would rather pull the camper with the new one, (SRW) especially for getting in tight spaces. Tows just fine, better mileage than the 08 too. Haven't noticed any weird driving quirks either. And most DEF problems are all gone. But if ya like extra wide turns, not fitting into parking spots, buy a couple extra tires etc then I guess the dually is your truck.

RE: Open ranger roam 337 vs keystone cougar

Need to be a darn short pontoon, or short camper. Don't let the tail wag the dog. Traded my Cougar last far after a little over a year ownership. Got tired of fixing everything. Replaced all the smaller gadgets that were installed from the factory. I figured I was gonna have to start replacing bigger stuff like fridge stove or the whole water heater and I didn't care for the frame flex at the hitch.

RE: Must Have, Don't Need

We also have a nice island with a sink which is nice some of the time but folks these islands take up a lot of space and also shuts off the back of trailer when slides are in our next trailer will not have and island We have a moveable island which is nice because it allows for access to refrigerator when slides are in. The only down fall is that the island is stored at the back of the trailer between the two slides during travel. As everyone knows, the back of the trailer takes the most bounce. The island, although it stays in place, tends to bounce up and has caused slight damage to the slide wall trim. Had I not noticed a gouge on both sides near floor, I wouldn't have known. It is very minor and only sticks out if you know it's there but I KNOW it's there so it is bothersome to me. They should have designed some way to anchor it to the floor in the back so this couldn't happen. My wheels are still spinning on this one...I'm determined to figure something out! That is my only disappointment with a moveable island. I love the extra counter space it makes when set up plus it provides extra storage in the kitchen. We have a moveable island in our Heartland and it has locking wheels and three tie downs as well. They are basically the same ones you see being used for tying down chairs to the floor. Just have to remember to unhook two of them in the front before sliding out the slides. Keeps it in place.

RE: oversized 60ft +towing a car

OK, how high is up? Up is about four henweigh.

RE: Made the first leap

Another vote for Heartland and B&W hitches. Love my Big Country and Companion hitch. Personally I think their owners forum could be condensed as it has way too many categories and several haven't had activity for months or sometimes years.

RE: 2015 Silverado 3500HD-Gooseneck Hitch Package

B and W hitch for the 2015 is the same as older models. Just did a change over last week from a 2012 to a 15. Wiring too. Part numbers for my truxedo cover were different although the dimensions are the same. Only thing I could see is the front stake pockets weren't exposed. I changed out the clamps for some from an old cover I had and everything is perfect.
