2015 Black Tank Issue, what did I do wrong?

This is our second 5'er had the first one for 10 years, with no tank problems, the new trailer is one year old now and already developed a problem with the black and gray tank valves. My procedure when I dump the tanks is to flush several bowels full of water while the black tank drains, rise the tank for 20 to 30 minutes till return is clear, then add a good amount of black tank blue stuff. Then I prime the empty tank with 3 to 4 bowels full of fresh water and away we go. On the new trailer I just had to have the both gray and black valves rebuilt. Luckily I reported this several time during the warranty period and finally they dropped the belly and did some serious repairs at no cost to me. Can anyone see anything I am doing wrong or change and do differently? What I did notice, is that our new trailer has a dropped frame as compared to the older style, the older fiver would really flow hard and fast because Z think it sat higher and maybe clear itself better? Thanks!

RE: Geico RV insurance

After 10 years with AARP, I dropped them and went to Geico. The trailer has its own policy but overlaps the truck so it is very inexpensive for us.

RE: 110 PSI Air While on the Road

Certainly didn't want to start another tire debate. Just trying to focus on the logistical issue of finding reliable sources of air at 110 PSI. You should be focusing on NOT doing something that will potentially be dangerous to you and others on the road. You should NOT put 110 psi in your tires just because you CAN. As mentioned, many RVs intended to use 80 have rims that are not designed to go to 110......and doing so can be dangerous. There is no debate about that. If you need the higher rated tires because of added weight AND you have the proper rims to do that, just say so and we can move on. The cold inflation pressure for the G14 is 110. I prefer to listen to the manufacturer. I have had three sets of these ALWAYS at the suggested cold inflation pressure with no problems.

RE: Route Suggestion Glacier NP USA to Cassiar Hwy BC

Thank you this is what I was considering too. Is the Cassiar as amazing as I have heard?

Route Suggestion Glacier NP USA to Cassiar Hwy BC

We are returning to Alaska next year and I am struggling with the portion of our route from Montana, probably around Glacier National Park, heading north to hit TCH16 to the Cassiar, I just can't nail it, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Suggestions Please for first Snow Birding to Arizona

This finally could be the first winter we try to escape to the warmth of Arizona for the winter. I have never done this before that is booking a place for 3-4 months in one area. Can some of you experienced Snow Birds suggest a few places to check out? We would be looking for more of a resort type property with the usual amenities. When you folks go down to Arizona do you normally stay at one place for the duration or do you move around? I would like to stay more rural if possible rather than being in a busy urban area. If anyone can help us with some suggestions to begin to explore I would greatly appreciate it. Happy Camping!

GoodSam GPS exclusive at Camping World

Does anyone have any experience with the Good Sam (Rand McNally) GPS unit exclusive from Camping World? GPS 7735 is the model number. What I like about in theory you can route yourself based on the type of RV, in our case a Montana at 13' 5", anything that could help us avoid low clearance situations would help for our trips. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Any route suggestions for entering Canada from Montana heading directly to Dawson Creek,BC? I would prefer to bypass the larger cities like Edmonton and Calgary. Thanks!

RE: Pull tests

We have been 5th wheeling for 12 years with one of the best hitches on the market, Pullrite. This hitch features positive pin locking, do I still do a "pull test", hell yes! Just my opinion.

RE: Auto Levelers, Wheels off ground on one side

Lots of comments and ideas here, I am not going to debate wheels up or not, but I do have a question for anyone who has more experience with the 6 point LevelUp system. One of the thread here answered a question for me how you would use the LevelUp to change a tire. I was told that if you press the right arrow, the curb side jacks operate, and the same for the left arrow. Ok, got that. If you are hooked up to the truck say for an emergency tire change for example on the left side, you press the left arrow and the left rear jacks operate, does the landing gear on the left also move? Just trying to understand this system, thanks!

RE: Auto Levelers, Wheels off ground on one side

Great info. Say I am new to the Lippert Level Up system, just got it last summer. Using the touchpad how do would you lift one side to change a tire? I would think you are in the manual mode, then what do you do? Thanks!

Good Sam GPS from Camping World

Does anyone have any experience with the Good Sam GPS that is sold only by CW? I have tries several GPS units in the last 6 months and have returned them all because of bizarre routing instructions on a test run to the town that is 9 miles from where we live. In theory the Good Sam GPS sounds great, apparently you define your RV and it gives the best routes available. Anyone using this right now and could comment. Thanks

I'm Growing Up

Today I had our dealer remove our Superglide Hitch from our 2011 truck we are trading it in, we should have the new truck in about a week. Moving from a 2011 3500CC SB Silverado to a 2016 GMC 3500 Denali full bed. Our Superglide served us well over 10 years across two different trucks. Now it is time to move on but we will stay with Pullrite, a Super Fifth 20K hitch with ISR (industry standard rails. The reason we are staying with Pullrite is the locking mechanism on the hitch. We just love it. After 10 years of use our dealer is actually buying it back for some $$ to put on the new Super Fifth 20K hitch. Its like saying goodbye to a good friend!

RE: Pullrite Super 5th Hitch and Lube Plate

That's why I posted this, one tech at Pullrite said it was OK, still on a different call another tech stated that they don't recommend it, that's why I wanted some real world experience. Thanks

Pullrite Super 5th Hitch and Lube Plate

Does anyone who uses a Pullrite Super 5th (not the slider hitch) use a lube plate between the pin box and the face plate of the hitch? We are moving to the Super 5th from a Superglide because of a different tow vehicle. When I asked customer service at Pullrite one person said yes it was OK another guys says no they don't recommend it. They can't have it both ways.

Removal of SuperGlide Capture Plate from Morryde Pin Box

Has anyone remove the special capture plate that is used on the Morryde Pin box to work with the Superglide hitch? The reason I ask is we are moving from a short bed to a full bed with a new Pullrite Super Fifth Hitch that does not require it anymore. Looks like the four corner bolts are removed two in front and two in back and the capture plate drops off. The four bolts look like they screw into the larger rod, one on each side. When you remove the four external bolts does that rod become free or spin or what? Just wondering what to expect if I tackle it myself. Any info would be appreciated.

Looking dor someone with 2015/16 GMC Sierra Long Box

Want to talk to anyone who has a 2015/2016 GMC Sierra long box with a 20K or larger Pullrite Super 5th hitch (not a Super Glide) for a few questions. Thanks

RE: Moving from Short bed to Long be tow vwhicle.

I consider myself a pretty good driver, so the dealer and I brought the dully home. Mathematically I should have been able to get it in with only 2 inches on each side. Got it in took about 10 minutes. I was very nervous about doing this, got it out with a scratch. Next we repeated the experiment with the Denali full bed. Went in as easy as my short bed. Had enough room in front and back, needless to say I was very pleased. If this would have not worked we wouldn't have bothered to upgrade. If we fulltimed I would most definitely have a dully. This was the first time I had ever driven a dully, what a great feeling of stability in the back (I am not saying our SRW isn't good our Alaska trip proved this!). Merry Christmas to all!

RE: Moving from Short bed to Long be tow vwhicle.

I cannot fit a dully in my garage and we thought it was time to upgrade. We are moving from a 2011 3500 SB CC Silverado to a 2016 GMC Denali full bed CC. More space in the bed will be nice. Do we have to no, but since we spend about 4 to 5 months on the road why not enjoy it as much as possible. Merry Christmas to all!
