RE: 1st TT for winter... Starcraft, Northwood, or Outdoors RV?

I've owned two Northwoods... For winter camping at Trout lake expect to use a -lot- of propane

RE: Ford F250 ? F350? Or GMC 3500?

I've been a Ford truck guy, well, for ever. That being said, it's my understanding that due to the new frame on the 2017 F350 it stands considerably taller then the GM or Dodge IMO it makes the 2017 Fords less of a contender for RV use

RE: Need Help picking a 5th wheel

While I can't argue against the Fox (we are on our 2nd one) How deep are your pockets? New Horizons will build exactly what you want (custom floor plans). But they start at ~$100,000 and quickly pass $150,000.

RE: Best GPS for a motorhome

The 760 Tom recommended has been discontinued and replaced with the 770 Both the 660 and 760 have higher resolution then the 760 They also include an improved general data-base and a display of the upcoming road profile (grade) With the higher resolution the 660 may do you fine.

RE: Looking for a new GPS

Some general thoughts.... The cell-phone apps (Google Maps, etc) do -not- include things like low overhead (overpasses) and propane restrictions (tunnels, etc). CoPilot general aps sound good, but I heard nothing good from a beta-tester of their RV version. The Rand RV-GPS family has the best built in campground directory, but after market POI can easily over come that. The Garmin series has a solid rep for the best user-interface, plus a good campground directory (which we supplemented with some 3rd party POIs) The current Garmin's have an option to display the upcoming road grade. Models with live "traffic" can be very useful in Metro areas. Mine have rerouted me around really bad traffic issues a couple times

RE: 5th Airborne Pressure

Testing with mine I know that roughly 30 lbs will be close to a little much. I will often air it when I am doing the pre-trip tire pressure. Then check it again when I hitch. I usually don't have to add more air.

RE: Does anyone tow a 5th wheel with a Andersen Ultimate hitch?

Did you install the 5th AirBorne to correct a "chucking" condition? If so, did it smooth out your ride? It depends on who you ask, but some manufacturers do not recommend using a air bag or rubber pin box with a Andersen Hitch. I don't get it. Many of them consider a AU hitch as a gooseneck adapter, which it is NOT. The AU hitch is NOT A GOOSENECK. It simply adapts the pin with a ball at the pin box. I don't see why a MORryde or Demco, or TrailAir wouldn't work any differently than with a regular 5th wheel hitch. I got tired of the effort to take a 300 lb hitch in and out. The Andersen is easy

RE: Montana LLC

The lawyer in question runs the largest firm the does these LLCs. So of course he's against it, it would effect his personal bottom line. Montana has been under pressure by a number of states to "fix" the LLC "problem". This looks like an answer, make it less lucrative for people from say Calf to license their rig in Montana but doesn't ban the practice.

RE: Is your favorite OTA TV Station going away ?

Link is gone, I smell a government conspiracy! Not Found The requested object does not exist on this server. The link you followed is either outdated, inaccurate, or the server has been instructed not to let you have it. Please inform the site administrator of the referring page. The link is still working for me... I get a PDF file with the list. Rob It gone now, I check with three different programs, then went to the FCC web-site and up to the April 13 orders, the only one there now is an on an FM radio station in Ocean City Maryland.

RE: RV Parks with 10 Years Old requirement

While we've never been turned away (when we owned a 10+ year old rig) friends have. But, ours was parked under cover, clean and well maintained. Theirs had moss and mildew. Also the main awning had been torn off. The "age" rule is a way to turn away poorly maintained rigs.

RE: Oregon regestration fees?

One guy I know has his $300,000 DP registered via a Montana LLC To keep California off his back it's stored in Ashland and he never takes it through Calf. I thought going from Sac to Ashland, to eastern OR, to Nevada to Phoenix was not worth what he was saving in taxes

RE: Garmin RV770 LMT S

Just got my RV770 LMT-S yesterday. Still getting used to how it works, but so far I like it. Won't know for sure for a couple months yet, but I like the integration to my iPhone via bluetooth. Again haven't had much time to play with it yet, but I like the size of the screen and the thinness of the whole device. Time will tell. Found out why I would not want the 770, it does it's "live traffic" via your cell phone. While the 760 and 660 use a built in FM radio

RE: Garmin RV770 LMT S

Hey 760 owners, is there a way to read out my elevation on the main map screen? My ancient Nuvi has this feature and I miss it on the big 760. Yes tap the "time" display and you can change that display to: elevation, sun rise/sun-set, etc

RE: Garmin RV770 LMT S

A lot of us own the 760 :W It's a great GPS. The auto-re-route for traffic has saved me a couple times Improvements in the 770 * Better general data-base of "points of interest" * Up coming road profile (grades) * Improved propane travel restrictions * better screen resolution * built in wifi for updates (I'd hate to do a map update on a campgrounds wifi, or my cell-phones)

RE: Road closed for Winter

If a road has a barricade on it, saying "Road Closed for Winter", and the date is April 3rd, which is officially part of the Spring season in the Northern Hemisphere... shouldn't whoever placed that barricade either open the road, or update the sign?? One of our highways will not reopen until mid June, yes it was closed for the "winter".

RE: Garmin RV770 and propane restricted tunnels

I'm running firmware 3.05 (software 5.4) I could find no separate firmware update and per Garmin Express the GPS is "up to date"
