RE: We altering mattress size

Go buy a queen mattress that you like and replace the king. Easier, les hassles, might be cheaper in the long run. Unless it is an all foam mattress, there will be metal springs that need to be cut down plus the padding.

RE: RIP Propane

Dont know where you go, but i see propane everywhere. All electric coaches? A big joke for people who like to camping. It is intended for those that love the RV resorts and what goes along with that.

RE: 2015 3500 Ram

Love my 4.10 rear end. Personally I would not get any less than a 3.72, but you have to understand ratios, torque, and load handling further to see my point. The 3.42 will work, but he might be towing in 5th when I tow easily in 6thOD.

RE: Gun safe for RV

Lot of weight. Most larger gun safes are going to weigh at least 600 pounds. Bolting that to one side might throw your weight balance out of kilter.

RE: Ram recommended tire pressure

Towing I run my dually tires at 80. Anything less reduces their load carrying capacity.

RE: Troubleshooting Electric Nash 22H

Please define anything? AC, ceiling fan, microwave or lights, furnace, refer. Refer is dual fuel, but always reauires 12VDC for anything to work. Also refer will need anout 24 hours cool down time.

RE: Truck/Trailer Capabilities/safety - Newb here....

Tow? Sure, no problem. Safely tow? I wouldnt, but I an not you. Been there, done that with much less. It is no fun arriving after a day of fighting to keep the load coralled. Really honestly you need to decide on what you need, then decide on a truck sufficiently large to comfortably handle the intended load. Anything else, you will simply be fooling yourself. Others will argue, but I feel anything over about 14K loaded should have a dually.

RE: Mass AIr Flow Sensor on a Chevy 454 engine with P30 chassis

Follow the air intake. Should be pretty self explanatory.

RE: SW Oregon to Wisconsin in November

SW where? Shortest would probsbly be 140 east to 395 south to I80. But weather this time of year is going to dictate travel.

RE: Axle issue

20% of 10,500 works out to 2100 pounds. 10,5 minus 2100 equals 8400. Your axles can carry 8800. I dont see a problem?

RE: Installation of Winegard Traveler on rubber roof

Get a couple of tubes of Dicor Lap Seal. The roof is likely made hy Dicor, so that is the correct product to use.

RE: How much does your dealer location matter in a purchase?

A lot in the first year if they have a decent service department. Otherwise nothing.

RE: Emergency with DW Computer

Get a Mac book! Seriously, I have read nothing but complaints about win10 eating up bad width. My win7 laptop will be my last laptop. Tablets now days are so powerful it is almost silly to have a laptop.

RE: What would you do differently "next time"?

There are a few changes since we bought ours. But overall I guess I would have to say we are pleased with our choice. Afterall we have had it for close to 12 years now.

RE: Cedar Creek Owners

Silverback has always been the low price version. Generally speaking there are a few less frills, and lower grade cabinet finishes. What is optional on the SB can usually be found as standard on regular CCs. Both are built on the same assembly line using the same techniques. Either will serve you well, so pick which one YOU feel most comfortable with and go.

RE: Brakes - Electric or Surge?

Can it be flat towed?

RE: Camp host rant

Depends. Typically volunteer camp host positions as for a set number of hours a day, usually 5 days a week. Medical emergencies, days off, things happen. We are generally around all day, but there has been times when we had to go to the store or something. We try to leave a note. We also have a sign stating on or off duty.

RE: Another question for the weight police!!

(Which I guarantee we will never reach) Am I good or way off base? Famous last words. It is very easy to wond up with 2500 pounds worth of stuff. How much does your truck weigh loaded ready to travel? Subtract that from the GVWR will give you payload capacity. The pin weight is also a dry number and not really worthwhile. 20% of the trailers GVWR would be far more realistic. Will it work? Run the numbers again using more realistic stats and see.
