RE: Best Wheel Chocks

I was trying to kill two birds with one stone which was keeping the trailer stabilized and also keeping it from moving. I liked the fact that the rotochocks kept it from moving front to back when walking around inside the trailer. But your right, you cant sue a rock lol

RE: Best Wheel Chocks

What size wedges do you have on your rotos? What do you think you need? I have an extra set that is 5" / 7" width. That is the size that I currently have, and they turned out to be too narrow for the new trailer :(

Best Wheel Chocks

So today while trying to get our new fifth wheel ready and loading up our gear into the new trailer, I noticed that the gap between the wheels was considerably wider than our old trailer. I took out our rotochocks and verified that indeed they were not wide enough to fit between the wheels. (i guess that's another item that I'm going to give to the new owners of our old trailer). While looking in to purchase a new set of rotochocks, I discovered that I couldn't find them online anywhere. In fact, they don't even appear when entering the name in the search engine. The closest thing i have found, is the BAL wheel stabilizer. Just wondering what the best chock is out there on the market or what most people are using? Sad to see rotochock go away, I really liked them and were easy to use.

Thanks ROBWNY, I just looked underneath the rig and saw that there was a factory sewer hose storage underneath. I didn't see it because it was way under the rig by the axle and doesn't come to the edge of the trailer. I actually had to get on my hands and knees to see it, which means im gonna have to do the same when using it :(. My Rhinoflex hose barely fits inside, but I can't have the attachments on the hose because they wont fit in the tube. Also, I can only fit one 10' length of hose inside so I'm going to have to build another tube. I really like Barney's design. Which brings up a question for Barney, how did you attach it to the bottom of the rig?

Here is what I did for mine. I made three of them. One for myself, and one for each my two sons who also have RV's. Got all the supplies at Lowe's The far end of the trough is open so it can be used as a hose support if needed. Barney https://i.imgur.com/HEcAcfDl.jpg Man that's a beautiful job you did! I think I'm gonna do that for the second length of hose. I can't tell what the mats you used are though.

On our previous fifth wheel, we stored our sewer hose inside the rear bumper which kept it away from the other items that we had. When we bought our new Reflection RV by Grand Design, I noticed that it does not have a rear bumper. The storage compartment is kinda small and I'm not fond of storing the sewer hose along with our other items. I was wondering what other folks do who don't have a rear bumper, where do you store your sewer hose?

RE: Sad state of national parks and public lands.

On our way to Lassen Volcanic National Park. On a national forest rest stop and vista point, wifey went to the rest room. But it was posted "Closed due to lack of funding." And down on these national forest roads are trucks barreling down with full loads of logged timbers on the national forest. It's not hard to do the math that one of those trucks can. pay for the maintenance of that entire rest stop and the rest rooms. Bigly sad! Interesting, I live near Lassen National Park, and all UFSF land on the Lassen National Forest is closed due to COVID. I'm curious why the sign would say due to lack of funds. Which National Forest was that? Lassen NF? or Shasta NF? they both have boundaries near the park. The latest update on opening is through June 11, 2020, so we'll see what happens. They've already extended the closure twice.

RE: RV roof collapse covered by insurance?

Results might vary by insurance company. A couple of years ago we had a pretty good windstorm come through our area and it peeled back the front cap of my 5th wheel at the time. My insurance company National General at the time denied my claim stating that it was a maintenance issue (or lack of). When I took it in for repairs, there was another trailer which had the same thing happen to them, however, they had another company that covered their claim. I have since cancelled any and all ties with National General. They were also the insurance company on my homeowners policy through Allstate. My thinking was that if they denied a 2k claim, more than likely they would deny any homeowners claim that would most likely be substantial.

Thank you Alan, can that adapter plug into a surge protector or do I need another adapter to plug into that? Or do i need to buy a 30 amp surge protector instead of a 50 amp one? I am hearing alot of good things about the progressive industries one.

RE: Buying tires? Check the DOT codes...

How do you decipher the code to determine when the tire was made? This is good to know. So the Endurance tires are the latest and greatest? Glad my new trailer came with them. I was wondering why I haven't seen Maxxis on any trailer and haven't really seen them online anymore. They were great tires. Sounds like i need to re educate myself on these things. One thing I did notice when we were shopping for a new trailer was that none of them had Carlisle tires on them.

We recently sold our 2005 Keystone Outback fifth wheel and purchased a brand new 2021 Grand Design Reflection fifth wheel. The new amenities and functionality between the two are light years apart. The new Reflection is a 50 amp trailer so i am not sure on what i can and can't use when hooked up to 30 amp power. what adapters do i need and can they be used with a surge protector? Which surge protector should i use? Since i cant use my gear from the old trailer, I feel like I am starting all over again with all the new gear out on the market with all the new styles, functionality and designs out there. Thanks in advance for any suggestions
