RE: Snow anybody???

Wish we had some snow here in Iowa. I'd like to use my snowmobile.

RE: Big Country sewer system schematic

Thanks Tim. I was thinking he meant they went to the same tank. Wonder if this is something I should be concerned with. Although I have never had this problem yet.

RE: Big Country sewer system schematic

The shower and the toilet drain into the same tank? Interesting. I figured the shower went into a grey tank and toilet had its own.

RE: What's the word on 5er + GN combo hitches these days?

There are four large set screws that keep the coupler from rotating on the kingpin. If the set screws are properly torqued there is no way that thing should ever rotate. After working maintaining heavy equipment for several years I have replaced several things that should never have failed. I appreciate the sturdiness of the B&W ball in both my trucks. Neither rattles and height doesn't need to be adjusted on my big GN trailer for hitch up either. As far as the companion, install and removal is easy, the jaws lock around pin so visual inspection tells me it's hitched. One inch solid jaws give me assurance that it's heavy duty and will probably hold up well should there be an emergency and stopping or wreck occurs. I feel comfortable it's not the weak point in my truck and camper setup. Not hard to install either. Measure and measure again before drilling those holes!

RE: Chevrolet Factory Hitch

I'm sorry, I was thinking about the bumper hitch. My bad.

RE: Chevrolet Factory Hitch

Probably the one thing I don't like about my new truck.

RE: Pickup bed step

I have the Amp bed steps for my work truck and I do have a few reservations about them. While they are nice to have I think the rear step under the corner of the bumper comes down too much. The difference between the first step and the bumper corner or tailgate is a huge difference. The bed step2 is almost useless in a dually application. Sure, I can get into the tool box, but accessing the bed for parts or hooking up the goose neck trailer is out of the question as the step mounts too far forward. Too bad too cause they got some good ideas. Just a little too generic for every truck. It needs to be designed for the dually and somehow mounted farther back for better access to the bed. On a short bed it may work better though.

RE: No hot water in bathroom

Outside shower is on. Did that myself this spring. Same result.

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.
