RE: 40 or 45 ft 5fer, any difference

Moving down the highway, length is not a problem. The challenge is fueling (have to stick to truck stops or a very open stations), entrance roads to rv parks and maneuvering within the rv park. My rig is 42’ and pulling with a SRW CC short box Ram 3500. So I have a decent radius. My problem is I have nearly 16” of rear overhang. Tail swing on my rig is horrendous, as is many of the larger rigs in this size range. Even though I realize it is present, it has still bitten me in the @ss three times now. So, look for the shortest rear over hang as possible no matter how long you are. If I could do it over again, I would look in the 10-12 overhang area. Even a 53’ box van big rig only has about 10’ of overhang with about a 72’ overall length. King pin to rear axle length is also a consideration. The longer that measurement is, the more room you need to turn that combo. Larger rigs are challenging to say the least, and some rv parks are a bit unforgiving. I drive a 63’ transfer truck for a living and don’t have as much trouble with it as I do my 57’ of rv and truck. Good luck on your quest. And safe travels.

RE: manual retraction of slides

On a hydraulic system there is a manual override mechanism you attach a drill/driver to and run it in. Same for the stabilizers as well. Got big problems if you are there however.

RE: Batteries not holding charge ???

My last set of Costco (interstate) batteries lasted 8 years. Try a hard charge for 3 hours and cook em off at 15-16v. May help de-sulfate them. Put a kill switch in for storage and put a charge on them every few months. The electronics and propane detectors will draw them down to a low level which causes your problem. Those are very good batteries for what they are. And the price is right. Here is a chart that gives you an idea of charge state. Keep in mind you don’t want to go below 50% of a charge on a flooded battery. Good luck..... https://i.imgur.com/sm8LhKHl.gif

RE: Stuck Caliper Piston

I always use the old brake pad to center the pistons to push in. Works every time....
