RE: Would you plug in here.

It looks like that wall outlet in "A Christmas Story". Yep, it's just one to many!

RE: Just repllaced TV tires

Took these pics last night at 32k. Truck tows at FULL RAWR of 9,750# and a bit more for at least 1/3 of those miles. https://i.imgur.com/ZzlN32Il.jpg https://i.imgur.com/J8WG6nOl.jpg Hey Cummins, you better stay off those curbs....lol

RE: Registration Rant

$58.89 for the Ram 3500 here in Washington County Arkansas. $35 of that goes for my special state park tag. No smog test either. Don't think we will be moving to Cali any time soon.

RE: HUGE Propane tanks on new Backcountry models from ORV

Last week I was wandering around the local Northwood / Outdoors RV dealer. A model caught my eye because it had graphics I hadn't see on other ORV models. I went over and took a look at it. It's the Backcountry model 20BD, which a new model for the mid 2020 model year. It used to be called the 20SK. The new mid year changes across the Backcountry series include HUGE 40 gallon propane tanks, solid surface counter tops, flush mount range, a generate delete option, which still makes them "generator ready". 8" I-beam frame, cap on the front instead of Filon and Diamond plate. 16" Goodyear Endurance tires, plus a few other things I probably don't remember. Here's a short video tour I did. Overall, I'm impressed with the changes. Those are 40 lb tanks that hold 9.4 gallons not 40 gallon tanks. They are nice though so you don't have to refill as often, I have them on my Montana and they are heavy when full (about 72 lbs each).

RE: New truck batteries

OP here and I did go ahead and buy 2 of the Duracell AGM batteries from Sam's. I believe this was a good choice based on all the comments. I know the truck spins over a lot faster than it had been. Thank you to all those who replied and especially Big Toe. I found this post to be very informative.

RE: how do dey do dat ?

Multi cameras and the right software can do some slick stuff. My question would be what kind of camera do you have to mount on the trailer and is it hard wired or wireless? What do you do if its a boat, flatbed, drop down rear door, ect? Might be fine on a rv but I pull several different kinds of trailers.

RE: Camping World Holdings Fiscal Health

I was very surprised a month ago when I was looking for a Sleep Number R5 King bed to replace the mattress in our Montana that Camping World online had the best price I could find by $300. It arrived on time in great condition. I also found a few small things that had better prices also. Now saying that I have never used them for service and was totally put off by the local store's sales department when we wanted to buy our last new camper 5 years ago. I agree with the above statement about them leaving a bad taste with the long term camping crowd.

RE: Any Night Stands?

I have seen several with small night stands on each side of the bed but not many that had 120 volt power in the bedroom slides. That was a must when we bought our Montana. It has two smaller shelves on each side of the bed and a 120 volt outlet on each side.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

Been running my B&W for 5 years now and it's been flawless. Had a Pullrite slider in my shortbed Ram before that and it did well but I like the B&W better.

New truck batteries

My 2014 Ram 3500 Cummins is starting a little slower now days and I know it's time to replace the original batteries. I have been using Walmart batteries for years and have had fairly good results. I decided to check at Sam's to see what they have and the Duracell brand is what they carry. After some reading it seems they have a good rating and I can get the AMG version for only a little more than the flooded cell. I am not looking to put Optima's or any super high dollar batteries in. Are any of you running the Duracell and if so what do you think about it?

RE: Truck bed plug or just use plug in bumper for 5th wheel

Added in bed sockets on my two previous trucks and my current one came with one. I find it makes for better cord management. Your results may vary.

RE: Keystone Montana for fulltiming??

Our 3100RL with a washer and dryer in the front closet loaded for a weekend trip comes in at 3,400 lbs on the pin. The 3100 is a shorter Montana with a 16,000 lb GVWR with a little over 4k CCC. After playing the 3/4 ton truck game with our last 5th wheel and watching every pound we decided to go with a dually and never give weight a second thought.

RE: Washer/Dryer worth it?

We don't full time but have separate washer dryer units in our Montana and love them. The only trade off for us is some space but it is not a problem. DW would not be without them in any unit we have in the future so that puts us in the 50% that like them.

RE: RV Crushes Truck

Hundred thousand dollar camper and a hundred dollar used hitch. No real surprise here. I agree with the above about it feeling staged.

RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

I bet there's a little bit of slop in all those parts also.

RE: New Tires - too many options

Need to look at something for my 14 Ram dually and the best deal I have found is the Sailun Terra Max HT. They seem to be very highly rated. Lots of good reviews about their trailer tires so I might give them a try.

RE: Light switch

Our 2007 Laredo had one of those and it was a 120 volt switch. Since the camper had 30 amp service it would select between the microwave or fireplace but not both at the same time.

RE: Am I missing something?

You at least got 5 minutes with a salesperson. I walked into Camping World in Lowell Arkansas with an appointment and sat for an hour before I went out on the lot myself to look around and then left (along with my $75,000 check in my pocket). Salesman calls me two days later wanting to know why I left after only an hour, really? I get how someone can get busy but he could have taken 1 minute to come out and say he was tied up and would be a while. That I can deal with but not totally ignored. Another dealer down the road was very happy to see me and my check, even bought me lunch. Guess who gets my business from now on?

RE: Furrion Observation Camera Wiring

Question: How does your camera get to the dashboard. Through the Bergman 7 pin , wireless or independent connector. Wireless.

RE: Furrion Observation Camera Wiring

Our 16 Montana came wired hot all the time and the camera died in about 8 months. When I called Furrion to see about warranty they ask if it was powered all the time, and I said yes. The lady told me they don't specify it but it should not run 24/7. They sent me a new one, I sent them the bad one and I changed it to run off the marker lights with no more issues. Don't know if Montana still wires them that way but the manufacture does not recommend it.
