RE: Bringing kayak with you...

I had a 14' tandem yak and an F150 with a 5-1/2' bed. I bought a Darby Extend-a-Rack that can be used with a front receiver or on the regular rear receiver. It can be used horizontally or vertically on the rear.

RE: Do you like towing?

If I didn't like to tow I'd have a Class A instead of a FW. My 13,000lb FW tows easier than my boat which is probably less than 5,000lbs.

RE: Youtube video / tow anything

I can think of lots of camping spaces in FL state parks where the additional 10' or so of length would make it impossible to back in my FW. Otherwise I can see where it might be a good device. I'll bet it's rather expensive.

RE: Forest River Product

Go over to forestriverforums.com for lots of complaints (but some folks have good experiences). We're sick of our 8-month old Wildcat. Going to look for a new FW tomorrow, not FR.

RE: waxing to increase mpg

It would perhaps help with a 200 mph NASCAR vehicle, but don't think it will help with your RV.

RE: Toad vehicle turn signals not working

Look also for a bad ground. Using a voltmeter can occasionally be difficult. I've found using a single wire with alligator clips at each end can be used as a test jumper to bypass components, providing a ground alternate. Just used one today to jump a bad tail light ground to my trailer, tail light lit right up telling me the ground wire needed to be cleaned and reattached more securely.

RE: Receiver shank pin destroyer..?

I've never had a pin get damaged in any manner.

RE: Awnings...how windy is too windy?

With the wind in the right direction an unstayed awning starts flapping and stressing the mounts at 15-17mph. When I hear it, I stow it.

RE: Backing 5th wheel vs Travel trailer

I've towed lots of trailers of different sizes. I can't say that a FW is more or less difficult than anything else, it's just different and you'll get used to it after a while. Having a good spotter is very important, and using walkie-talkie can really help.

RE: Gas Below $2

I'm surprised at some of your high prices. I double-checked your posting dates to make sure they were new posts. Only $2.349 locally. Last week I bought diesel for the same price but it's about $.05 higher this week.

RE: When do the snow birds hit the Gulf coast?

They seem to start to trickle in October. This past year in FL has shown increases in lodging and tourists. I'd bet that RV resorts CGs, and state parks visits have increased, too.

RE: Win 10 data update costs, you thinkk its bad Here

I think because the folks with windows 8 hate it so much they're desperate.

RE: Another tire question - one going bald on side

I agree that the axle/spindle is bent, or, the bearing set is loose or just bad. Get it aligned first with the spare on it to determine the actual cause before buying tires.

I'm in the every two year category.

RE: Question on sewer at full hook-up site

I've only used my slinky a couple of times when the CG Sewer receiver protruded more than 6".

RE: Is a long bed a requirement for pulling a 5th wheel?

May or may not need a slider, especially not if the FW has the newer front corner reliefs. If I tried to go a full 90 degrees with my signature rig I'd have to slide, even though my corners are relieved.

RE: Pullrite Superslide 5th Wheel Hitch

All good suggestions so far. Used to have the 12k model and it was occasionally balky, but it always came off using the suggestions here, without removing the head.

Best Cost-effective FW Dealer in the East

A few months ago I saw a post about a high volume FW Dealer in, I think, Kentucky or Tennessee. The dealership might have advertised that it's Christian - based and supposedly has the best prices, too. I cannot find it in a search. Does anyone know of what I speak?

RE: Is this a good deal?

Sounds like a good price off the top of my head, but go over to NADA for RVs for a comparison check.
