Very New to Snowbirding Florida Question Please

We are trying to go south for our first winter. I have spent many hours on the internet researching out rv resorts for Florida. Today I received a call from a rv resort around Navarre, Florida in the panhandle area. I was surprised that the average temps are around the mid 50's for Dec, Feb and March. Is this what I can expect for the whole state? I sure thought that it was much warmer down there. How far south in Florida must you go for 60' to 70's? Any suggestions for a good place to go with a 40' 5th wheel trailer that is worth the price as far as amenities and weather. If I can't get this put together soon, I may be using the snow shovel again this year! :-)

paint protection question please

You folks are the pros when it comes to paint protection. I am getting a new 5th wheel trailer that will have the front and back cap painted. Can you recommend good product to begin using to protect our in investment? Anyone hear of a product called Insulator Wax 845? Thank you for any help!

RE: New 5er with painted front and rear cap

I honestly never heard of the Insulator Wax, but on line at Amazon the reviews are marvelous, anyone else ever hear of this product?

New 5er with painted front and rear cap

Looking for some information and suggestions on what to do with a brand new 5er that has painted front and back cap. Would you be proactive and get some wax on it right away? The sides won't take a beating from bugs as the front cap will. Any tips or tricks will be appreciated.

RE: Any Tips or Tricks for our New 5th wheel trailer?

I have learned a lot about my 2005 Montana from this forum and others. You are so right about tires. I am on my second set of G614 that I upgraded too. I was happy to be able to order the new Montana with the Goodyear G614 it in my opinion is worth every penny for the extra load capacity, it is a G rated tire and actually built for heavy towing. We took our 2005 Montana to Alaska in 2013 and both the tires and trailer performed flawlessly. I thought it was interesting that after the 10,000 mile trip you could hardly see any additional wear on the trailer from the Alcan Highway, but the truck tires had very noticeable wear. The only thing between your trailer and the road, is a piece of rubber I want the best right there for me and the wife.

Any Tips or Tricks for our New 5th wheel trailer?

Just wondering if there are any tips the group could offer on anything we could do to our new 5'er when it comes in next month to help keep it healthy and or avoid any issues down the road? For example is it worth it to get on the new room and apply some type of protectant right away? Anything special to add to the tanks so the sensors last longer? Should we wax it right away? Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated. Happy Camping!

Snowbirding first time in 2015

Just traded in our 2005 5th wheel for a 2015 and we think that this will be the year we go south for the winter. Remember we never did this before so my questions may sound dumb. 1. When do you normally leave for the south, we live in Northern Wisconsin? 2. We would like to see as much as possible. Thinking of 3 or 4 different parks and spent 4-6 weeks at each and move on to a new location. Thinking Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and maybe ending up in Mississippi or Florida. 3. Can anyone offer some nice places that they could recommend? Thank you, any advice or comments will be appreciated.

2015 Montana 3440RL Owner

Would like to find any owner of the 2015 Montana 3440RL, we have some questions before we buy. Thanks!

Your Valued Opinion Please

Thinking about buying a new 2015 fifth wheel. The brand does not matter what matters is that the way they built this trailer it is impossible to add, either at the factory or dealer install, a slider awning on the curb side slide that houses the kitchen/fireplace and entertainment center. The other two slides on the street side are not a problem. As you can see we have a 2005 with two slides that came with slider awning, and we have never had an water leakage issues of any kind. Am I being too anal about this uncovered slide? I am to the point that it could be a deal breaker unless I can convince myself that I am over reacting. What does this community think?

Towing 2015 Montana with 2011 3500 SRW CC D/A Combo

We currently pull a 2005 29' Montana with our 2011 3500 SRW D/A CC and no matter what the adjustment it always rides slightly nose high, which I can live with , we had no problems with our 10000 mile Alaska trip in 2013. We are considering upgrading to a 37 to 39' 2015 Montana but I am concerned how level it will tow. In 2011 Chevy raised the sidewalls up a little and with the enhanced rear suspension that caused the SRW trucks to ride higher in back. Pullrite suggested adding the 3" raised to clear the bed rails and that gave us adequate clearance there. We raised the pin box up to the maximum setting to bring the nose down and the rear up, it helped just a little. I want to talk to some one with the identical tow vehicle (2011 SRW CC D/A and Superglide hitch combination) and a current Keystone product either a 37-39' Montana or Mountaineer to understand if this combination can be towed level. Thanks for the help!

5th Wheel Guy going to Class C General Questions

I never thought I would be doing this but because of some health issues we may need to down size and make RV'ing a little easier for the wife and I. I love my diesel tow vehicle for the 5th wheel, any suggestions on a diesel or gas chassis to start with. We may tow a toad. I am familiar with sliders on the 5th wheel, are they a must for the Class C, and are they reliable, hydraulic or electric? What size to consider, and I don't want to start a posting fight, what are some good names to begin to look at for the Class C. Thanks

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

When we did our Alaska trip in 2013 I also carried 15 gallons of diesel just in case. Never used it, but I would do it again for our 2015 trip, you just never know if the remote places run out at the wrong time. In 2013 we needed to fuel around the Pink Mountain area, here is where we paid when you changed from liters to gallons over $9.00 per gallon. We met many folks from the lower 48 at the various campgrounds that were very upset with prices in general for everything from food to fuel who swore they would not spend a dime in Canada that didn't have to. Considering that many of the business in NW Alberta to Northern British Columbia and definitely the Yukon depend on the tourist trade they sure try to wring out every cent they can from you. But you know all that said the trip to our 49th state is worth every cent, I didn't let this ruin our trip in 2013 and will not be surprised in 2015. We also carried 4 spare tires, 2 for the truck and 2 for the trailer and I thank the Lord we never used any of them. On a paved road around Laird Hot Springs we took a rock in the windshield, just a nick, I consider it my free souvenir from the trip. The wife and I were talking on what we would do different in 2015 and basically we would slow the trip down a little, maybe stay at our favorite campgrounds a little longer. The major highlights for 2015 include only returning to one place that I just fell in love with and that is Homer. So two weeks in Homer, 2 weeks in Fairbanks, 2 weeks in Haines. In each of these stays there are many opportunities for tours and side trips and some fishing. In 2013 we left NW Wisconsin on May 15 and returned August 15, in 2015 we will leave May 1 from Wisconsin and head to St Mary, MT where we turn north into Alberta, and be back around September 1. What we did learn last year after all the planning was not to book ourselves so tight on the trip plan, always have some built in wiggle time. This became pretty important when my wife had a dental emergency on a Friday afternoon in Glasgow, Montana. Hopefully we will be able to come back down the Cassiar Highway and do a side trip to Stewart/Hyder area. It was exciting just to write about this this morning! Happy Camping to all!

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

I carried my own supply. If you can find it chances are that you will pay big bucks for it and not be assured of the quality and age of the DEF

2015 Trip Planning Question road between Tok and Dawson City

This will be our return trip to Alaska in 2015. This time we want to make sure we see Dawson City. Thinking about leaving the trailer in Tok and driving north to Dawson City for a night, then return to Tok. For you folks who have driven this route just what are the conditions, I think from what I have read that after a distance north you loose the paved road. We have a 4 wheel drive 1 ton truck, can we make it to Dawson City taking our time? I have heard that sometimes buses make this trip, I really don't want to drag the 5th wheel on that type of road. Any comments or suggestions about this? Thanks

RE: Alberta Friends help me with this route please
