RE: Vancouver/Victoria, BC 5er travel

Be advised, not one of the routes is "cheap" for a large rig

RE: Arctic Fox 27T solar ready, what does this mean exactly?

The wires you found are to connect to meter, there should be other wires, maybe at the refer vent what would connect to the panel. Theses should (?) be connected to the battery via the meter. Personally I would call/e-mail customer service at Northwoods, they should be able to give you exact locations.

RE: Camping world thief

Most RV service firms have a similar policy, if this policy would actually get them off in a court test may be another questions

RE: Shop Labor Rate. Survey.

NO. Of course you have a great service place right there, who also just happens to be a member of this forum

RE: Shop Labor Rate. Survey.

Ah no The place where I go gets a 9 to 10 out of 10, has a lower labor rate then it's regional competitors and charges fractional hours. A friends repair took 15 min, so they charged him 1/4 hour. Of course they have a long waiting list, and you can't bring your rig by until the night before your appointment. They don't advertise (they don't need to)

RE: Any brands out there you would totally avoid?

I'd shy away from anything made by Thor Industries only because they're suffering from money problems and disharmony at the top. :h money problems??? Disharmony at the top??? :h any backup information to support what you are saying, or what really appears to be only a string of words put together without supporting evidence… I pay a certain amount of attention to RV industry news, gossip, etc and have heard nothing about "disharmony" in the upper levels of THOR. Not saying it's not true, just that it's not apparent if it is. From the investor/stockholder/finance point of view THOR appears to be among the best operated firms in the RV industry.

RE: Any brands out there you would totally avoid?

In the final years, Fleetwood products got a lot of bad press. That's because they were making crap.

RE: Do You Travel With a Solo Siamese?

Actually no, we travel with two, and yes they do "comment" when they realize we are hitting the road again.

RE: New to 5th Wheel and looking for information

I understand wanting to have use the truck as your daily vehicle. A certain caution must be advised though, think about traffic, parking and fuel economy and make certain it's worth it. If you are driving say a couple miles to a lot around PSNS, maybe it's not too bad. But if you are driving around to Seattle (as one friend was), it quickly becomes a killer. At some point the fuel cost would justify getting an econo-car also. The previous owner to our truck tried it as a daily, and learned the fuel costs were killing him.

RE: 5th Wheel Reliability

You get what you pay for. Expensive ones are almost always better quality than the less expensive. The one's your looking at are mid-range and the quality is about the same. What he said If quality is the most important, buy a New Horizon. Of course it will cost you on the order of $100,000. Just a bit down from that (in price and reliability) is Excel by Peterson, DRV and NuWa (although the last gets a small question mark, they are no longer "building their own", but have contracted out to an un-named firm) Used to be that Sunnybrook was right close there too, but I've heard unsettling things about their quality since Winnie bought them and I couldn't say if they are, or are not, as good as they used to be. One thing to remember is the "sub-systems" (refer, oven, water-heater, etc) tend to be the same makers from the top end RV to the low end RV. Traditionally I believe that Northwoods (Arctic Fox, Nash, Fox Mountain, etc) gives of the best value for the dollar spent.

RE: A/C service ports

I have not seen a window AC with a schrader valve in probably 20 years. I have inspected maybe eight roof RV ACs, and none had a service port of any kind. I think the little sealed pigtail is where they they add refrigerant during the manufacturing. Matt B That is also my understanding, few (if any) are made to receive "easy" recharges. That may not be true for the basement mounted A/C found on some high-end DPs

RE: thousand trails explained

One of the things to remember with TT, is you should be able to use your plan for 10+ years (which is probably long enough), not necessarily "forever". There are really two companies, one (the one you deal with) "owns" the memberships that allow you to camp. The other owns the campgrounds and gives the membership company a long term lease to allow camping. The current agreement is good for about another 15 years. So far they have just kept extending the agreement, but there is no requirement that this continue. They set it up this way to allow the TT membership company to go bankrupt without effecting the land-holding company. Not that I'm saying this is likely, but it's their business plan to protect the land in a bankruptcy situation.

RE: 12V Portable air compressor

The "Slime" works well. I've seen tire shops (good ones) refuse to attempt to repair tires that have been slimed I do use Green Slime in my cart, wheel-barrel, lawn-tractor and bicycle tires though. I echo the "buy a good one". I did and it will pump my 80 psi tires in less then an hour :B

RE: banks system for 1995 ford motorhome

Banks is a solid add-on for the 460 Banks Trans-Command for the E4OD or 4R100 is even more important. It reduces the heavy-load failure rate of these transmissions. It is sorta a "tow-haul" idea.

RE: Pulling a "Toad" on a Trailer?

2011 Coachmen Mirada Your CGVW rating is between 23,000 and 30,000 lbs. Weigh the rig (loaded) and check the following chart

RE: Pulling a "Toad" on a Trailer?

What year MH? The ratings (CGVW and Tow-rating) varies a bit across the years, ie a 1999 is different then a 2014
