RE: Got a Durango Gold 380FLF?

Did you make the leap? Hope you did, you won't be sorry. We picked ours up in Oct. and love it. The reasons we chose the Durango Gold 380FLF are: 1. Huge front room. Great for entertaining when there's weather. 2. Great kitchen setup. Big fridge and lots of storage. 3. Large bathroom and biggest shower we found. 4. Bedroom is awesome. With King bed, still biggest bedroom we found. 5. Access from drivers side was a plus for us. 6. Storage, storage, storage. Wife is still trying fill it up. :-) 7. Outdoor entertainment. TV and small fridge. 8. Fold-down rear bumper storage with bike rack. Enjoy! You should relay to your DW that just because there are cupboards and storage everywhere doesn't mean it need something in it. Lol. Wish I could convince my mother of that. So many things fall in the category of might use. Might is a day that apparently is long time waiting.

RE: Keeping a stationary 5th wheel movable

Concrete blocks would do the trick. They are inexpensive as well. It's what all those mobile homes are sitting on.

RE: Levi Jackson & All Other Kentucky SPs; Never Again!

The only real issue would be the apparent water leak that the park should need to address. I can guesstimate you drove in on the wrong path if you did indeed back into your spot. Or you were just trying to have front doors face each other. As far as your friends electric requirements, it says what's available when reserving the campsite. Did you miss that? The difference really is rving vs camping. This is no rving spot! Try some places with at least double or triple the price. That would be a start on what your accustomed to. Happy rving.

RE: Campgrounds near Yellowstone

We stayed at a KOA in Dubois Wy. this year and drove to the park. There was also a ace called Fireside rv park I think that isn't far from the park enterance/turn to go south towards Grand Teton. Dubois was a bit of a drive though it is however a nice little coyboy town and we were backed right up to the bank of the Wind River. Beautiful view out the back window!

RE: Pullright Superlite Hitch

First I've seen of it. Looks like it would be real nice. I don't like all the pieces on the super rails. Lots of parts for me to lose.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Winterized it. Bummer.

RE: Winterizing Atwood water heater

Is this task accomplished in the area where you hook up your water hose? My last camper and this one too just have a bypass or winterization valve in the water closet. No need to climb into the belly of the beast looking for valves.

I saw that ad too. Do some price comparisons on your unit and other Silverbacks and price accordingly. Then ad your truck as something that can go with for an extra cost. The high dollar for a Silverback will scare most away.

RE: Landing gear failure and zero gravity problems

I would certainly be in the dealers face to get something done about this long before 63 days have gone by. Better find someone high up in the dealership and get their phone number and call every day to something happens. I keep the dealer owners cell phone number as well as his wife's number handy! Works pretty good!

RE: Air-conditioning

If you are thinking about trading go try some of the new ones with the A/C on. The difference in noise between our new Cedar Creek and our 2011 Big Country is amazing..No longer do we have to turn the Television way up whenever the air comes on. Never had any idea there could be this much difference.. B.O. X2 Went from a 2013 Big Country to our new Venom and the difference is amazing. Old ones were Norcold and new camper has Coleman ac's that are off ducted to the sides of the ceiling so the noise is cut way down. And the air flow is much better too. I can actually feel a breeze when they are on.

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

Buffalo Campground in North Dakota. Very Private. $6 per night! (no hookups, showers were locked). Plans only had us here for one night. http://i.imgur.com/JcWG19ml.jpg Rafter J Bar in the Black Hills. Lots of space, very pricey, wifi never worked for a second. http://i.imgur.com/loPTjtUl.jpg I think I camped right across the path from your Rafter J spot this summer. The scenery looks familiar. That or you were up on the island.

RE: LCI Remote System + Auto Level

I figure I'm probably doing something wrong on mine. I tried a couple of times and nothing. Suppose I fat fingered it and hit something I shouldn't seems to me it wanted to raise the front without releasing pressure off the rear jacks. That idea didn't sit well with me.

RE: Towing over trucks max tow

I guess for me it's always on my mind as to how much we have in the camper and in the truck. The max weight limit is totally loaded and I can guarantee I'll never be fully loaded. Never haul full tanks or even half full tanks for that matter. We have empty cupboards all over the place. Eat off of paper plates instead of glass. In fact I don't think we have any glass kitchen ware in the camper. Don't over pack groceries either. I like to support the local community wherever we are going rather than pack for three meals a day for however long were gone. Just the two of us and our dogs. Sure we can haul a toy now and it's either a kayak or a ranger which rings in at around 1250 if that. Just cause there's space to store stuff doesn't mean we have to carry it along and then not use it!

RE: Tire Issue

Simpletire.com sells Sailun tires reasonably. I think the last two I got were around 126 a piece plus some shipping.

RE: Venom

Search for LCI onecontrol. I came up with one app that is just instructions on how to use it and then the other is the control app.

RE: Venom

Have you downloaded the app to you phone yet? Does make a few things a bit more easy but I would still like some switches for lights.

RE: New guy need help picking a TH

The Venom 4114 is 13' 7" garage equipped. I think my pin is 3110 lbs. I have the same track as you and haven't noticed any real issues yet. Pulls great. Do have some warranty issues to get taken care of but they all can't be perfect I guess.

RE: Fridge WOES......Again

If there is a fan it should be attached to a thermostat on the cooling fins directing the fan to come on at 130 degrees or at least around there. If it's not then the heat can't rise and escape so the freezer will work but not the fridge. Thermistor should read between 8-10000 ohms after about ten minutes in the ice. To make sure the board works just unplug the the thermistor from the circuit board and over about a day at most the fridge should become a freezer. That will prove the circuit board is functioning. Just went through this on my parents fridge last month. These instruction were in the dometic book and online for troubleshooting. There are checks for the heating elements but I never got that far. Replaced the fan with two, (the factory bracket will accommodate two in my parents) and works really good now. Oh and double check the door gaskets too. Unbelievable how much cold air you lose when the door opens.

RE: Fridge WOES......Again

Does it have assist fan or fans in the back outside of the fridge to move air? If they burn out it can breathe and while freezer will be cold the fridge will not. Just a thought.
