RE: Realilistic mileage with a fifthwheel.

It depends (lawyer speak), but it depends on your towed weight, grade and wind factor. Ten mph seems to be a good average.

RE: Another tire question

Minor cracking is normal. I think Michelin has a chart used to assess the amount of cracking. Five-six years is the time to start looking for new tires for Class As, although some folks report getting many more years from their tires.

RE: How to secure a residential drop-in bathroom sink?

A sealer/adhesive should be able to hold it in just fine. Remember to wait 24 hours before attaching the plumbing.

RE: FL park for this Jan-Mar? (stop laughing!)

I've never had a problem finding a space for a short while, but long-term is problematic. All you can do, unless you luck into a cancellation, is call around till you find something. Don't ignore the county and state parks, either.

RE: Fifth-wheel Questions.

1. How hard will it be to find camping sites in or near National parks with this 42 ft camper? Most National and State Parks were designed years ago for small RVs. Staying below 36' would help in that regard. 2. At what point do you say I need a DRW not a SRW truck? Start to think about DRW at 14,000-16,000lbs. 3. What difficulties will I have with this size fifth-wheel that I would not have with a 35 fter? I have to believe that 42 footer is way too much for your 2500. We have a 40 footer and were not able to use a few CGs during our summer trip to NY.

RE: Weekend travel MA to FL

Baltimore south as far as Richmond VA can be a crapshoot on 95, even Sat-Sun.

RE: 3M 5200 Adhesive caulk for solar mount with screws

If you use 5200 you'll for sure never get it apart. There is a solvent for it but it might damage the RV parts or roof.

RE: Replacement mattress?

First thing we did was trash the "super" mattress that came with our FW. Got a reasonably priced one at a mattress store and we lucked out; as comfortableable as our home mattress.

RE: Pulling a Car behind 38fk Columbus 5’er

Its not "fear mongering" to state that double-towing is prohibited in some states. Likewise, it's best for the OP to check with Columbus about frame limitations before hooking up a car.

RE: Interstate speeds

Cruise at 65 and pass up to 70.

RE: Myakka River State Park

You may luck out seizing a cancellation if you check the website every day. Might also want to check out Oscar Scherer.

RE: Slider or not for 2011 F350 srw 7ft bed

All Ford short beds are 6.5' as far as I know. I have an auto slider and the front corner of the Montana still gets rather close to the truck cab. OTOH, the 2014 Wildcat didn't need a slider, so you never know till you hook up.

RE: Does owning a camper make you rich or a cheap tightwad?

I was rich until I bought an RV; now I'm RV poor.

RE: Sailun tires

Simple Tire drop shipped mine to a local installer I found on their website.

RE: How do you carry Kayaks on your 5er

Front hitch receiver with T and roof rack more than enough support. There have been threads on this before try search. /\This/\ I carried a 14' Hobie.

RE: Conversion Vans not allowed at some RV Parks?

Reality - They have the right to refuse you a spot. Practicality - Not likely to happen. /\This/\

RE: Wheel grease escaping?

I'd suspect a problem with a bad seal, too much grease, bad and overheating brake or overheating bearing. Drive it and check all four wheel hubs with a temp gun, looking for a higher reading from the suspect wheel. Or, just tear it down looking for the problem.

RE: Wondering about impact of Harvey and Irma

My best guess is it will be months before the Keys will be available. Perhaps better around Naples and Ft Myers.

RE: Brakes

I've noticed all trailer brake shoes are thin compared to auto and truck shoes.

RE: slide outs

If you can hear the motor operating it appears it's a mechanical problem. May be as simple as a broken shear pin. If you have the skill set you need to observe the slide mechanism while someone operates the switch. Depending how it's built, you may have to drop some underbelly first.
