Branson, Mo Suggestions Please

For those of you who actually have camped in or around Branson, MO can you suggest a CG that can handle a 40' fifth wheel safely? We will passing through the area this spring and thought we would stop if I could find a CG that is acceptable. A nice big pull through would be great. Any ideas? Thanks

RE: leveling systems for fifth wheelers

Our 2005 Montana did not have the Lippert LevelUp system, but our 2015 does. It is amazing to watch the trailer dance from front to back and then side to side leveling itself. This came standard on our new Montana.

Best Way to Change Tire

I found that on our new 5'er we have some fancy Morryde suspension on the trailer that allows for more up and down movement or something like that. My question has two parts. If you need to change the tire can it be done while still connected to the truck? And second am I correct that you want to get the jack as close to the axle hopefully on the frame rail but not on the axle itself? Am I correct? I was told that when I would jack the trailer for the tire change my suspension will hang a little more causing me to raise the trailer more than usual. Can anyone give me some background on this subject. I do have a 20ton jack and some extra boards to get elevation of the trailer. Thanks

Lippert 6 point LevelUp System and cold weather storage

I am new to this system, my 05 5'er did not have the LevelUp System which is really amazing. That being said I called Lippert about cold weather storage this morning and they said to exercise it periodically thought the winter. I was surprised at this because you don't operate the slides during the winter. I already have the battery out and said good night to the trailer till spring. Would like to hear from folks who lives in the northern areas of the country if they do this on their LevelUp system? Thanks!

RE: Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

Can anyone recommend a real good trickle charger for my trailer battery. Thanks

RE: Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

So do I understand this right, the best is to disconnect the battery and use a battery tender while the battery is still in the trailer? Thanks

RE: Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

This is my first trailer with a battery cut off switch. Does it totally isolate the battery from the converter and any 12 volt circuits?

Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

We have our trailer all winterized and parked next to our garage all ready for the cold Wisconsin winter that is fast approaching. Right now it is plugged into a 30 amp outlet. Is it ok to leave the battery in all winter as long as it is being charged by the trailer? Thanks

Winter Storage Flat Panel TV's in 5th wheel

Going to have to store the new 2015 for the winter. There are two Samsung flat panel TV's in the trailer. Do I need to remove them because of the cold temps in Northern Wisconsin? What do most folks do who need to store their trailers for the winter do? Thanks

RE: 6 point leveling question

Main AC Froze up last night-what to do now?

We have a 2015 fifth wheel with two AC units. Our 2005 had only one and I never froze it up in 10 years use. On the thermostat I press the inside temp for Zone 1 (main) and it says 32 degrees F. If I run it I think the compressor is not cycling on because it is not blowing cold air. We are running on the smaller bedroom AC and it is doing its best. Besides turning off the main AC and hope it defrosts, anything else I can do till it melts? Is there a trick to make two AC's play good together? Any advice from your experiences will be appreciated.

Possibly Covering Fifth Wheeler this Winter

We are considering covering our new 5th wheel this winter. Does anyone have any experience in the northern upper Midwest area where we get snow as to what kind of cover is the best to consider? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

RE: 2015 5th Wheelers with Furrion Backup Camera

Update on backup camera. I cannot believe it but Furrion sent me a complete replacement observation camera and monitor for the new trailer. It took about 5 minutes to replace camera on the back of the trailer and a minute to establish the "pair". The bandwidth of this signal is so good I could see individual rain drops falling. And I don't understand how or why but it is OK for this type of camera to be wired on all the time.

RE: Winter in South Texas?

Thinking about Galveston, Corpus Christie and Victoria, Texas, for about 4 to 5 weeks each. Can anyone recommend some good parks in these areas? Thanks!

2015 5th Wheelers with Furrion Backup Camera

Looking to talk to folks who have a 2015 Keystone 5th wheeler for sure (mine is a Montana)that came with a factory installed Furrion (that is the manufacturer) backup camera. Apparently what has happened is that Keystone for sure and some other companies have installed the backup cameras wrong on some of the 2015 trailers that came with this camera as standard equipment. There is no switch and no fuse that can turn it off, it is hotwired permanently on. When you talk to the Furrion tech service they acknowledge that many of their backup cameras are wired wrong. My camera is on ALL THE TIME whether connected to the truck or simply parked. As long as there is power it is on. It was supposed to be active only when connected to the truck and in reverse gear! It will burn out. This camera was never designed to be on constantly. Anyone have this issue?
