RE: Keystone Outback tire wear

A good big truck trailer suspension shop can get it aligned for way less than what some RV dealer will charge to replace the axle. Won't have a 2 month wait either. B.O.

First time I ever saw a post where someone didn't swear that dryer sheets are the answer, not just dryer sheets but Bounce dryer sheets. Could it be that people finally realize that traps, poison or a mean old cat are the only real answer? B.O.

RE: Tailgater

Do you pay for the locals as part of your package with Dish? they are optional. Call them back and talk to someone else. I had a problem after I put my service on hold thinking we would have cable at the RV park. I called and told them to turn it back on and that my receiver would need to be re-flashed as I hadn't used it in months. Couldn't get it to work. Three days later after many calls and ordering a new Tailgater I asked them if they were sure they had turned it back on. Answer was "Oh yes"...funny, after that call it started to work. I would call King Controls and run it by them if you have any questions. B.O.

RE: 5th Wheel Hitches 101

I am also a big fan of B&W hitches. All American made in Kansas with all American raw materials. I use one and it is by far the smoothest and easiest to hitch and unhitch that I have used. No reason to look and farther. B.O.

RE: 2019 Heartland NorthTrail Dual AC Units v Upgrade to 15k

$900.00 is a lot. $1400 is even more. Shop for a new unit online and you can probably find one in the $600.00 range. Very easy to install if you are replacing a unit. Hardest part will be getting them on and off the roof. I don't think it will make a very big difference. I would try it the way it is, you might be surprised. If you really want to do this look for another dealer with more reasonable prices. B.O.

RE: Magnetic Cam Locks???

If you ever loose your key for those cheap locks all you need to open them is a flat blade screwdriver. Don't place too much trust in those cheap locks. B.O.

RE: dded a new toy to the RV fun equation...

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, and hopefully this isn't, but you might want to bring your Rzr in for an inspection and recall check. Over the past handful of years, Polaris has had a lot of different recalls, some being very serious and "Stop Ride" notices. I do not recall the 570 having the serious fire issues... but be safe and make sure everything is checked out first. Should also be fairly easy for you to have your exact model/VIN researched to know if there are any missing recalls. Again, sorry if this seems like I'm raining on your parade as it's not meant to, just be safe!Why would this be bad news? You bring it to a dealer, they fix it, no charge end of story. Wouldn't stop me from buying one. B.O.

RE: Tire Experts Weigh in: Run these or replace them?

There are lots of private label tires sold at various tire chain stores that are American made and budget priced. I would put on a set of them. Found some for my wife's old 2006 Mercury that doesn't get used much. They are some odd brand but made by Cooper. Less than 1/2 the price of the major name brands and feel they are much safer than the 8 year old Michelins they replaced. B.O.

RE: Tire Covers and X-Chocks

I do this all the time but I use double tire covers. B.O.

RE: Cracking paint

If it is cracking, nothing will help. It doesn't matter if water gets in behind it so don't worry about sealing it up. Sounds like they did a poor repair job under the paint. B.O.

RE: FCA Proposes a Merger with Renault

Hopefully a merger would mean a return of Renault to the US market. A LeCar or a Fuego makes a great gift to give to your enemies. Not a better paperweight anywhere. AMEN! They can combine all their junk with the other ones junk. This will be a boon for the scrap metal industry. B.O.

RE: What are your yearly registration costs for your truck?

Minnesota, around $500.00 on my previous 3/4 ton based on vehicle value same way they charge for cars/ Traded it on a new dually 1 ton. Plates are now charged according to weight as it's a truck. Cost around $150.00 per year. We make up for it by having high property taxes, high State income taxes, sales tax on almost everything and taxes on anything else they can think of. B.O.

RE: New mattress recommendations for not petite people?

We replaced ours with a Zinus 12" foam. If we did it again would get the 10". It would be a little more firm. Tried the mattress topper made it too soft. Wasted our money. Live and learn. B.O.

RE: Auto level leg lift?

I only put blocks under the legs if they don't hit the ground. You can raise the rears to put in a block but I don't think I would try the fronts unless it's hitched. In my opinion using blocks under the legs if not needed defeats the purpose of a Level up. B.O. I use blocks under the legs every trip. It allows me to avoid dropping the inner leg, which makes the legs more rigid. Ultimately the larger outer leg is more substantial and carries the weight better. In the end the blocks make the entire set up more stable simply because the legs are more solid and they are not extended as far. I agree with you, I used to do the same. But my hydraulic Level Up doesn't have inner and outer legs. They work just fine. B.O.

RE: Purchasing a new RV

Ooooooh lala. The Glacier Package. That implies you can park it next to a glacier in January somewhere above the Artic circle and it will be more comfortable than the trailer that does not have the package. Good luck. Nothing but marketing smoke and mirrors. Marketing hype. There is no industry standard for any of these packages. Meaningless. Might not be more than a decal. Will they guaranty in writing that it will work in a specific cold temp.? I think not. B.O.

RE: Need an opinion

A single Champion 3k would likely be cheaper, especially if you sold the Honda. Give you a lot more capacity. Lyle Will also be 3X louder..... signed, the guy camping next to you :) Not true. The Champion invertor type gennies are very close to a Honda in decibles, much quieter than two Hondas running at the same time. B.O.

RE: Carlisle CSL16 235/85R16 G

Maybe they're okay but why take a chance when the Sailuns are well proven and readily available both online and at dealers? B.O.

RE: Storing Your RV

I would love to keep mine at home, but it just won't work. Not enough room. My storage facility is very nice, about 10 miles away. Fenced, in a good area, security cameras, alarms, coded gate not just a padlock, on site security. No junk laying around, pest control comes in monthly, nothing torn apart or being worked on. Most of the rigs are newer and well kept. It has worked very well for us for the past 9 years. B.O.
