RE: Use Shark Bite connectors in RV?

RE: blank tank wont seal

Is it a FR 327CK by any chance? Mine went in for the same problem. Service tech said the valve couldn't close fully because of lots of "stuff jammed in there, thus blaming it on us. We've only been RVing for 30 years now and have never had that problem in the past, just saying. I think the tank can't fully drain properly. They had to remove the underbelly material and said the install looks correct. I'll know next time I remove the drain cap, and I'll be holding a bucket, too.

RE: What is this valve for?

I know, I know, it's a, a, a.....damn, senior moment.

RE: RV Parks Near Alexandria VA. or DC.

Have stayed at Pohick many times. Nice and convenient to DC if you must.

RE: Where best place to post Toad for sale

Not sure it's the best place but hitchtrader.com is a good site.

RE: Are you happy with the size?

Went from a 30' to 38' FW. It's still not big enough for me although my DW is perfectly happy in it.

RE: Base Rail Bent

I looked at my same hitch and rails and can visualize the possibility of bending a rail if it slammed back hard enough. Perhaps I should have shelled out the additional dollars for a Pullrite Superglide. I'm going to be very careful to slide more gently in the future.

RE: People ask about mosquitos....17 trillion

I just killed one of Florida's 3,554,287,668 mosquitoes. Only 3,554,287,667 to go.

Add Bike Rack to Forest River 327CK?

Has anyone added a bike rack to their FR 327CK rear bumper, and if so, how was it done? FR tells me the bumper needs to be reinforced even for a 2-bike rack. I carried up to 4 bikes on the bumper of my old Cougar and it was plenty strong so this FR must be sorely lacking.

RE: Debris on roof of bumpouts

Darned good idea and I put it on my list for purchase.

RE: Class A MH vs 5th wheel/pu truck

We've had/have both. It comes down to personal preferences, floor plans, needing a truck for other than pulling a FW, not wanting another engine/chassis to maintain, yada yada.

RE: 2002 F350

The 7.3 motors were great and are still in high demand. But, the transmissions were the weak link and capacity was not near the newer ones.

RE: Weight Police

My FR 327CK is only a bit heavier than a 313RE. Had to get an F350; sold my F150 that easily pulled an 8400lb (loaded) FW. There's no way that F150 should be matched with that FR. I believe the weight police go a bit overboard at times but this time they'd be right, but it certainly doesn't require a dually.

RE: Do you winterize your Blue Ox tab holes?

You can avoid the problem by wintering in warmer climes.

RE: Base Rail Bent

That's not good but agree, two bolts on each end and one in the middle, minimum.

RE: New to me 5er....hitch recs needed

Those rails look like what I call standard Reese rails. The mounting parts that are truck-specific are attached to the truck frame under the bed and the rails attach to them. The hitch is probably fine for continued use, but since it's old and for your peace of mind, it might be best to have a hitch installer check it over for worn parts.

RE: New Brakes for 2010 Montana

If all else fails pull a wheel and hub and do a direct measurement of the shoes (length and width). They'll be something like 10x2" or 12x2-1/2. I've found the folks at e-trailer.com very knowledgeable and their website is loaded with info.

RE: Dumb question concerning on board water tank

Find the tank fill and use a hose and funnel for the bleach as others suggested. Put in about 20 gallons of water and go for a drive so the water\bleach sloshes all around the tank. Drain and fill your tank normally. If you can still smell the bleach do another fill and drain. While I won't drink straight water from my tank, I will use it to make coffee. Can't say I've ever been sick from the tank's water.

RE: Second AC Size

To me they're all loud, ducted or not, but my cool is more important. Since you have a 15, a 13.5 should be enough.
