RE: How late in the year is to late for Monument Valley

Yellowstone, it really depends on the year. I've seen the roads 100% open by mid-April, I've seen it snow in mid-July Most years the roads are all open by mid-May. Not all campgrounds are open until June. Personally I would start south and work north, rather then the other way around

RE: Closed Trailers

Total size is the issue a friend has. He tows his SmartCar inside the cargo trailer that is also his shop.

RE: Where to buy good semi-cheap ratchet socket set in USA?

Stick with a good brand such as Sears Craftsman tools. Harbor Freight is pure junk made in the Far East. A real waste of money. Remember you get what you pay for .... haven't bought any Craftsman since K-Mart bought them have you?

RE: Xantrex Inverter Question?

Well, I bought that inverter from the same source... Yes it is a true-sinewave inverter. I also bought the wired remote and relay. I hard wired it into one of the 120V circuits.

RE: Arctic Fox travel trailers

That's wonderful for you but you'll notice I did not make the comment on NW trailers in general. I was specific to the new model the OP is looking at. I never said it was some sort of historic issue with them. A close friend of mine bought a new 25P (same chassis) and his did as I describe. The dealer said it had become a common issue. We looked at some newer arrivals at the dealership and they had been built in a similar manor and only time will tell if they still fail. This is why I commented and I think the point is important. Sorry Scott, but 1) the neither the 25P nor 25R are not "new" the 25P goes back to 2007 and the 25R goes back to 2005 2) There are no Fox dealers in Florida, the closest is something like 400 or 500 miles away The combination makes me think he is looking at a used 25R

RE: Arctic Fox travel trailers

...mcsandman New Horizons 19' 5er. FYI, I put them at a slightly lower quality then New Horizon, which I think are the best made RV

RE: Arctic Fox travel trailers

They are better than avg. but still have problems. If you buy that model be sure to check the rollers for the slide from time to time especially when new. When the slide is out, lift the carpet flap and check the plastic rollers. They have a poor mounting method and tend to collapse into the floor. The slide will still work but it will labor. This would not keep me from buying one but just be aware of the problem. Never had that happen in 12 years of owning two units. Also never have seen that complaint on the Northwoods products forum.

RE: Riverbend RV Park in Washington

Power and phone have been out to many rural areas for over a week. The towns just got limited power back. The PUD estimates it will require many hundreds, if not thousands of new poles to get power/phone back to all customers (who's homes still exist)

RE: Arctic Fox travel trailers

I was impressed by the Arctic Fox and looked hard for one when I was in the market for our first fiver. But they are very very rare in Florida, about as rare as the critter they are named after. Some friends in Texas drove to Florida to buy their used 29-5T

RE: Arctic Fox travel trailers

FYI Find out of the rig was made at the (old-closed) eastern plant vrs the main Oregon plant. While the basic quality would still be there, the eastern plant used 3rd party frames, vrs making their own. Yes the frames were made to Northwoods specs, but they aren't Northwood frames. Some rigs made in between 2002 and 2006 had delamination issues. Northwoods fixed this with tighter environmental controls in the factory. These may effect your final choice on this rig. Both of our last two rigs, the 1999 24-5N we had from 2001 to 2011 and the 2012 29-9E were made in the Oregon plant. Obviously we think well of them. Northwoods rigs are heavy, they are built to stand up to off-road use. They generally have a large cargo capacity, both of our rigs had a 4000 lb cargo rating. They are built tight, both of our rigs are tight enough that if you leave the entry door ajar and move the main slide, the air pressure will move the door. They are well insulated (for an RV) most come with Thermo-pane windows (it's an option, the factory tells me that 90% of them ship with Thermo-pane windows)

RE: Is the left side of my trailer heavier?

It's possible, wheel by wheel weight (most closed highway truck weigh-stations leave the scale one)

RE: Strange Radio

Does the radio have an alarm feature? Our Jenson does, on the right hand side of the radio, guess how I know this :B

RE: 2015 Ford Expedition towing Northwood Snow River 234 RBS

You need to check with Ford on the tow ratings, they can sometimes change radically between model years. The 2014 2WD varies between 6000 and 9200 lbs, depending on equipment (the 4WD 6000 to 9000) But, yes it's unlikely you would load 4000 lbs, but unless you skip water though it's likely to be closer to 2000 lbs then 1000 (yes, both of my Northwoods have had similar CC ratings)

RE: Electric awning question?

Brand and model? Mine does not have a limit switch, if you keep pushing the extend button, it will unfurl to the end, then start rolling back in, backwards

RE: Ford E450 V-10. Problems with #10 cylinder

The splitting problem was fixed by the 2001/2002 model year.

RE: HELP!!! Rotted floor in fifth wheel bedroom slide!

If the rot is confined to the floor, the usual source is the under-side seal. Replacing a rotted floor is tough and expensive...everything including the walls rests on the floor.

RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

Never blown an tire in 20 (plus) years of pulling a 5er. Covered most of the western US and Canada in that time, of that hundreds of miles was on dirt roads. I would certainly check to the alignment, and everything else again.

RE: Solar Tax Credits

I asked my tax lady about solar in my second home and was told it applies to primary residence only. all I get to do is deduct interest, etc. from my taxes bumpy Well this morons tax guy says it is legal in this state since the motorhome is considered a second home, so the solar was deducted. As far as batteries are concerned... Don't push it... Wether or not you can tie those together, I doubt you will find an auditor that understands the story you whipped up. Looks like two "experts" have different opinions.

RE: Solar Tax Credits

Personally I would find a Tax expert on Solar Credits and ask them, not us morons in a forum, I would -not- be surprised that RVs are excluded.
