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

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.

RE: More GM recalls.

Looks like another whoop de doo recall. Floor mats slipping or the possibility of hitting the key with your knee and shutting down the vehicle are the kinds of recalls that bleed of trying to protect us from ourselves.

RE: Proper Hitch for Big Country

Have a Big Country and haven't needed a slider yet. I have never been in a position to need to turn as sharp as 88% . Hope I never am in that position either. Put a lot of strain on the suspension of the camper to be in that tight of a turn.

RE: New TV

Congrats! We just looked at a new 2015 3500hd today. Dealership was closed but my friend is a manager and we went through numbers yesterday so I wanted to get a look at it today. Took it for a drive and said yeah, let's do it. Absolutely loaded and love the fact I get to start over with four miles on the ticker. Will trade a 2012 3500hd identical but an lt instead. Lots of miles but still lots of life yet too. And yeah, the exhaust brake is a great addition.

RE: GMC 2500HD - Road Warrior 410 - Airbags?

Find a different truck. Lifts usually ruin towing capacity. Been there, done that. Tires aren't heavy enough and very few rims are either. All made for looks. Shocks are made to hold up a cool looking truck and take rugged terrain, not to tow anything. I determined they were a huge waste of time and money long ago. That trailer needs something heavy to pull it with.

RE: New truck.....now what?

Don't know about the newer trucks but on the older one I had I pulled a spacer block out that was under the spring pack and put it on the top which lowered the rear of the truck almost two inches. Was great cause it was easier to work out of and was at no cost to me.

RE: Door County & Green Bay Hall of Fame

Craig7h... Would you happen to be going to the Amanas this weekend to camp? Ketelsens spring camp out is this weekend.

RE: Door County & Green Bay Hall of Fame

Hmm... It seems the message I sent you was lost on my end too. Was simply asking if there was a spot you would recommend in your area as we are coming up this summer for a few days before heading to New Richmond. Told the DW we should tour Lambeau Field and then just wander around for a while. Need somewhere to land though. Any suggestions?
