RE: New Truck and 5th wheel

Went from a sgl. rear wheel to a dually one ton. No comparison. I drive the dually almost every day. Never had any issues with where I can go except through a car wash. Don't even notice it's a dually most of the time. The towing experience has to tried to believe the difference, plus the bigger brakes and towing ability. I would never go back. This one is a Chev. Last one was a Ram. This has been much more reliable. Maybe the new Rams are better?? B.O.

RE: Anti roll bars for fifth wheel with air ride.

I would disconnect the hoses between them and install individual fillers for each side so the pressure can no longer transfer. B.O. I'd just put a valve in the crossover line. Open to fill then close. Good answer. Keep it simple. B.O.

RE: Mixing Michelin tires

Shouldn't make any difference at all. I'd go with the ribs, myself. Who would know better than the tire manufacturer. B.O.

RE: 2020 Crusader anniversary edition

If it has colored gelcoat caps and not painted, count on it to fade and turn white in a couple years. I'd get some kind of guaranty in writing, that when that happens they will paint them and replace the decals at no charge. B.O.

RE: 2010 5th Wheel with a broken frame at Pin Box

Can't imagine many if any RV dealers employ a genuine certified welder. I would take it apart myself and have a mobile welder fabricator come out and fix it right up. Once you get it apart down to what needs to be repaired I can't imagine it would take more than a few hours of their time to fix it right. B.O.

RE: Thinking about project 5ver

When it's all done you will have a 2002 trailer that some campgrounds will not let in based on its age. Depends on what you want to do with it. It still won't have much if any resale value but if are fixing it up to use it for your self then you have to be the judge of that.

RE: Trouble with Winnebago warranty repair.

I had the same leaking problem with my Cedar Creek. I fixed it myself by adding some self-sticking foam weather strip along the outer edge of the cargo door. Problem solved in about 15 minutes. If you aren't prepared to do some of these small repairs yourself, maybe an RV isn't for you. B.O.

RE: broken springs

I just replaced all four springs on my Cedar Creek. Not that big of a job. Replaced all the hardware, u-bolts etc. to make it easier to work with. Did one spring at a time only taking off one wheel at a time. Not a bad job and it took about four hours to complete. B.O.

RE: Sink covers on or off

Don't really know what they are good for. Usually just in the way. We have plenty of counter space and don't need the. Ours are stored away for the next owner, I guess. B.O.

RE: Best tankless water heaters (LP) 2.5gph or higher

Don't forget, as soon as you plumb in propane, 120 volt electric, potable water and or wastewater plumbing you may have problems finding camping spots unless the unit is certified to meet the appropriate standards, I.E. NFPA 1192 / ANSI 119.2. If you only ever boondock on private land it will likely never be an issue, but elsewhere it's a legal requirement. You may also have insurance issues without it. Really like someone is going to check ????? B.O.

RE: Best tankless water heaters (LP) 2.5gph or higher

I have yet to hear of anyone really happy with an RV tankless water heater. Maybe there are some people I haven't heard of yet; I am certainly not all-knowing. But they seem to have trouble with maintaining anything like an even temperature with the rather widely varying flow rates that are common in an RV. I believe you mean 2.5 gpm, not 2.5 gph; 2.5 gph is a small trickle, a third of a cup per minute. We have a Suburban in our Cedar Creek. Very happy with it. Comes with a learning curve. Turn the hot open all the way and regulate the temp with the cold. Otherwise it will cycle on and off. No complaints here. B.O.

RE: What options?

Dual Pane windows, hydraulic Level-up, auxiliary fuel tank, dually pickup. thumbs down on the lousy central vac. B.O.

RE: Steps recommendations

I think the entry steps are the least of it, what about the steps on the inside every time you have to go to the bathroom? I have trouble with mine also. Need to look at what it will take to add one more step. B.O.

RE: How big a pain to sell a 17 year old Alpha Gold?

Take whatever you can get and move on. A consignment dealer isn't going to let it sit on their lot if it is way overpriced. A few thousand dollars isn't much in the grand scheme of things. My experience has been that these are not easy to sell. B.O.

RE: Camping on my lot against zoning law

Don't poke the bear. Sure way to be moving. Depends on the neighborhood, but if no complaints from neighbors you may be ok, not legal but ok. You can always research penalties online or in person, they are public records, or ask an attorney. I agree. Leave well enough alone. If they chose to do something it will most likely be to put an end to it. keep the place neat and tidy, don't give neighbors cause to complain and enjoy it while you can. B.O.

RE: Any Advice on buying a used 2012 Silverback 33REA?

Rot in floor...run, run, run. Probably also has rot in walls and possibly mold. There are plenty of good sound trailers around, don't buy a project. Bike rack doesn't work just bolted to the back "bumper". That's just a lightweight hose carrier, it will fall off with bikes attached to it. Sounds like it might have flood damage...STAY AWAY!. Sounds like it is pretty bad shape for a 2012. I wouldn't touch it... B.O.

RE: Slide seal protectant

Haven't ever done mine. No problems. If I did it would be 303 never Armor All. "Tech" doesn't know squat in my opinion. B.O.

RE: Question for ZEP (RMP) users?

I did all the prep work then used the Zep. Looked great for a few months. Then it started to crack and flake off. What a mess. Had to use stripper and scrub several times to clean it off. Finally had it painted and never looked back. In my opinion the only real solution is paint. RV dealers are not usually equipped to do this and farm it out, then mark it up. Shop some truck and equipment shops that will have a big enough paint booth. B.O.

RE: Roof freckles

It matters plenty. Road soot collects on the roof, gets wet &washes down the sides as black streaks. Fine if you don't particularly care about the appearance of your rig & what that eventually has to do with its value. Did the roof of mine today giving it a good going over after a 3 1/2 month seven thousand mile trip. Followed the cleaning with a good application of 303. Mine has rain gutters that work real good. I get no streaks down the sides. As far as resale....last two I traded in and the price I got was sight unseen. Dealers never laid eyes on them until I showed up to do the deal. In all honesty I would put the condition of mine up against anybody's. After a few years there is no resale value anyway. B.O.
