RE: 5ver Comparison

Some of my info is dated: Jayco was bought by THOR and the quality appears to have declined a lot. GD was bought by Winnie and the quality appears to a declined a little. I was never impressed with OpenRange Of the three I would be the most serious about a GD

They have a great magazine, tire discounts, roadside assistance, and several other benefits. They also put on rally’s around the country and have many local chapters. Traditionally the tire were motorhome and truck only, maybe it will expand to ST tires Their road-side is among the nest out there

Maybe, haven't decided yet

RE: Problem with T-Mobile Internet

It's certainly possible a booster on a push-up mast will do the trick. Back in the working years we put a repeater at about 70 ft above the water line and could hit cell-towers 50+ miles at sea. Today, yes Verizon gives better coverage. BUT, T-Mobile has a new band they are currently deploying. Since this band is -lower- in frequency the coverage area will be improved both in rural areas and in buildings. BUT this change is at least a year from being anything like full coverage.

RE: anderson ultimate hitch

Look at the PullRite automatic slider--have used one for ten years and would not give it up!!!! I've owned both (plus other 5er hitches in 25 years and 10's of thousands of miles towing) The PullRite SuperGlide requires more maintenance then any hitch I have ever owned. It's also the most finicky about trailer hitch height for hitching/unhitching of any hitch I've owned. It's also the heaviest hitch I've ever owned, to remove it from the truck I had to "hitch" then pull the bed-pins and pull the hitch that way. To re-install took me from 15 to 60 min to get the truck and hitch lined up. But it does exactly what it is intended to The biggest down side I have found with the Andersen is how high I have to raise the trailer to hitch/un-hitch. I have about 3 inches of clearance in my RV port at that point. Due to the geometry of my trailer I can't open the "generator" bay when connected to the Andersen, this was a problem my first time out as that was where I had my leveling blocks. But it also does exactly what it is intended to and is the quietest hitch I have owned in years.

RE: How to tell dual pane/thermal pane windows on Arctic Fox?

AF has typically made two options available, factory-installed, for thermal window performance. One is typical dual-pane or thermal-pane windows and the other is storm windows, the removable interior pane. Which ones are or were offered depend on the model and year. AF has always offered factory options of some kind for that need. As others have noted, some dealers in harsher climates never order units without them and the factory will tell you that about 80% of all units produced include a thermal window option of some kind. In 2011 the production manager for Northwoods told me that 90% ship with either dual pane or storm. At that time both were "options"

RE: driving the I15 in febuary

.. There is one RV park off I-15 in great falls open year round. go by it quite often when we are in Great Falls. Quick place to stay overnight, but from the looks, that's about it. I thinks it's Dicks RV park or similar, off I-15 and 10th ave south exit. Yup Dicks is open year around. I'm fairly certain Helena RV Park is open year around I think Butte KOA is open year around

RE: driving the I15 in febuary

You are going to find few parks open, plan your over night stops well ahead. Don't be afraid to stop in places like Great Falls, Helena, Butte, Idaho Falls, etc an extra night if it means waiting for weather or day-light. DON'T plan on doing that trip on a short schedule

RE: Anderson goose neck adaptor hitch.

I've owned something like 4 different hitches in the 25 odd years I've been towing 5th wheels, the Andersen is one of them. The biggest down side for me is how high I have to jack the trailer to hitch/un-hitch. This is because at home I just have about 6 inches in clearance between the rigs roof and the roof of the RV-Port. I've seen photos of two different "failures", one was a clear failure of the attachment of the hitch to the truck, it appeared to me that the rails were not properly attached to the truck frame (clearly not a failure of the hitch) The other appeared to be a failure of the hitch structure, not certain how it happened. Unlike any other hitch we've had the DW can remove it by herself

RE: Beachwood resort--diamond membership

I think that's one of the "grades' above our membership (Platinum) K&M resorts have more levels then I understand. But ours suits us. Beachwood is "associated" with K&M, it's actually owned by one of the McCloud family, but I forget which one (McCloud's own K&M) In general the K&M family of resorts is run better then most membership campgrounds around (eg Thousand Trails, etc). They aren't deeply in debt, their maintenance is usually done on time, etc. The only suit I am aware of is one where some people with the Park Models were upset about the terms of their lease and how long they could (or couldn't) stay in their rigs. Would it make sense for you to upgrade? I have no idea.

RE: Witch dehumidifer to purchase?

The small cheap ones (EvaDry2200) can only lower the humidity in our rig to about 60%. While the expensive ones (that use a compressor) can lower the humidity in our basement to 40%. We have it set to 1/2 way and it keeps the humidity around 50%

RE: Yellowstone in mid May

Expect snow, at least still sitting around. Depending on the winter not all of the park might be open. The plan is to have Fishing Bridge Campground open by then. But it might not. Not all of the campgrounds will be open by then. They don't plan to have everything open by then, so there will be limits on what you can do. I'm not certain the Fishing Bridge will hold your rigs, but I am fairly certain none of the others will. In fact you might want to stay outside the park.

Traps, and sealing (I also use barn cats) I don't like poison as the beasts will die and stink up the rig Neither soap nor dryer sheets work, the same is true of home made herbal or oil

RE: HD TV Antena

Just want better reception than i normaly get in a c.g NO indoor (window) antenna is going to work better then a roof mounted one. I'm going to guess you have a Winegard crank-up, probably the Sensor-III. If so, get the Winegard Wingman add on. It improves UHF a great deal

RE: How many of you tow doubles?

If I remember correctly about 10 or 15 years ago it was legal in Oregon I know for a fact that recreational doubles was illegal 25 years ago, and am unaware of any period when it was legal.

RE: Furnace working intermittently

While it might be a loose wire, checking isn't going to hurt. It's quite possible it's the control board inside the furnace.

RE: Furnace working intermittently

What exactly is happening? Is the furnace starting, including heat? Is the blower just running? Do you need to turn the thermostat off to restart the heat?
