RE: Hitch ball grease

I never grease my balls.

RE: Can this be removed?

Yes, its supposed to drag (and protect) when you get into a situation like your driveway. Perhaps placing 2x8s in the valley between the road and your drive will lift the wheels enough to raise the rear. It's possible to replace the skids with small wheels if necessary.

RE: Tires.... Keep for awhile or get them off???

Perhaps you can make tires part of your negotiation with the dealer

RE: Ongoing saga of the motorhome

If you really want the RV I suggest you try again to work with the dealer, but on your terms. So what if the RV is nine years old, you still need to know all the systems are okay.

RE: Ram 2500 5.7 hemi mpg.....a bit disappointed

That's a big truck with 3.73 gears and driven in winter with who knows what in the gas formula so I'm not surprised.

RE: Battery replacement

Generally the batts you get at auto parts stores advertised as "marine" are combination cranking/deepcycle. They're okay for most applications (I have two each in my FW and boat), but they're not, for example, like golf cart batts. They should suffice unless you go off the grid for days at a time.

RE: fifth wheel hitch

Have a simple Reese 16k slider; operates easily and light enough to remove from the bed as necessary.

RE: We are out of here!!!!

Sorry, I'd risk the ticket. Haven't you ever followed a semi with sheets of snow, or worse, ice, flying off the top? I think it's expected up that way and people know to follow at a good distance.

RE: Washer/Dryer Combo??

Can't recommend one brand over the other, but suggest you get the vented model of whichever you choose.

RE: On-line reservation timing

I've discovered that with reserveamerica.com a lot depends on when a particular CG "releases" unused spaces. For example, I was trying to get into Bahia Honda in the Keys for just a couple of nights during high season, and I lucked out because one reservation cancellation occurred just minutes before I went on line. Similar thing happened at Oscar Scherer when they released six spaces at once. Of course, this was only in FL and I don't know if the same thing happens in other states using the same reservation system.

RE: RVing if you don't like to drive?

Don't know your travel plans or time management. One way is to limit overnite stops to, say, no more than 300 miles each day until you get to your destination. There are some companies or "hot shot" drivers who will move fifth wheels or trailers. Don't know about Class A rigs because then you'd have to pay for the driver's return trip whereas hot shots may find a return tow paid by the next person.

RE: generator transfer switch

Possibly above the fridge or next to the circuit breaker panel.

RE: 32 vs 38

I went from a 30' to a 38' and have no regrets, but I knew from the get-go I would not fit into a few CGs. The bedroom and bathroom in the 30' was miserable for me so my decision was easy.

RE: NewBe Fifth Wheel Questions

To give you some perspective, my signature truck unloaded is 37-1/4" and 57-1/2" measured at the back of the bed and top of the tailgate, respectively. I have a 16k Reese hitch (nothing special) that is at its lowest setting. My signature FW rides slightly nose high (maybe 1"), and I have 5-6" above the bed rails. Perhaps this info will help you. I had a FW dealer tell me there's no way to know for sure that a particular truck/FW combo will work until they're hooked up, and I tend to believe him.

RE: honda eu 3000is

I have one and used it for three weeks at a time dry camping in Key West. No problems running a 15k AC, but not much else. Had to turn off the AC to use the MW.

RE: 1/2 ton truck buyer's log, day 4 - happy endings (pictures!)

Congrats. I reluctantly gave up my '04 F150 and if you have as good an experience as I did you'll be a happy camper indeed.

RE: Cabinet Repair

I'm guessing it was stapled from the backside and you can't figure out how to hold it while you attach it to the face frame. I don't think a suction cup would hold on the wood grain. I would drill a tiny hole near each end of the panel and thread a fine wire through the front of one side, across the back and out through the front of the other side. Put a few dabs of hot glue in strategic places and hold the wire in your hands and pull the panel towards you while the glue cools. A wax pencil would disguise the holes.

RE: Is my 16K Reese ok for the job?

Think you'll be fine until you hit 16k.

RE: Anyone Know Why The Michelin XPS Is Not Intended for Winter?

I don't know for sure but you're not using them as drive or steer tires on a MH so I wouldn't worry about it since you're using them as trailer tires. Plus, you wouldn't be using them during a snow or ice event, correct?
