RE: TC + extended hitch

No need to remove factory hitch, get the D1104 Torklift hitch This is correct. The super hitch works WITH your factory hitch. NOT complicated at all. Buy quality once and never worry about it.

RE: Trip Report: Rocky Mountain High in CO and WY

Looks like somebody is a GREAT grandfather taking the time and having fun with the kids. Looks like it was a great trip. Thanks for posting the pics. It brought back a lot of memories.

RE: eagle cap versus host

I think it depends on how you pack etc. My 2016 RAM has a 14K GVW. Both axles add up to 15750K. The tires are above that. But even at 14K with my wife and I in the truck with full fuel we have a payload of 5700lbs. I agree that if you pack heavy with one of these big campers you will be over 5700. Of course you could make the truck a new 2016 reg cab, 2wd, gasser and now your payload just went up to around 7K Just some thoughts.

RE: How much truck do I need for a 23K 5th wheel?

RAMs also have an awesome exhaust brake. It works VERY well. I often don't even touch the service brakes on mountain descents in the rockies.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

I tried to get a charter in Homer. The captain said " The weather is pretty rough out there, I don't recommend it"

RE: Used RV Help

Even if you buy brand new, you WILL be taking it back to the dealer many times to fix many things. This is very common in the RV industry. Or you fix these items yourself. Better to buy a used one where all the nit noid things have been done.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

We are sort of circling the kenai now. Spent two nights in Valdez. A night in Kenai. Now coming out of our third night in Seward. Heading to homer today, then Ninilchik before pressing on to Denali. This "gravel lot camping" in AK takes some getting used to. I don't think we've ever vacuumed the MH so much. However, the waterfront RV park in Seward is great! Thanks for the update. Your going to love Homer. I thought the spit was great and the whole town was very nice. My wife and I said we could live there. All the eagles are fun also. Got some great pics.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

OK, where r u at and what r u doing??? Those of us at work want to know. Throw us a bone now and then. I'm sitting here in the office and the most exciting thing is the rain outside.

OP, looks like a newer 3500 dually will handle it just fine.

RE: A/C question to ponder

OK, you can get a lot of heat from the engine in the rear bedroom when driving and for a few hours after stoping. When my kids were in the back bedroom watching movies while I drove we always ran the AC because it was hot. Of course we were always traveling in the summer also. I also ran the front one for my wife and I while driving. I also had the dash air on to. I don't like to be hot. I almost never ran the middle one, maybe if it was very hot. All 3 ran great on the 10K genet. or on the 50 amp when plugged in. I loved the genet it was a 3 cylinder kubota engine. 10K Onan quiet diesel. Awesome.
