RE: RV cover vs shed?

An RV carport type cover is the simplest and easiest. And no struggles with a cover when returning from a trip or putting it away for the winter. More expensive but nice looking is a raised center aisle barn type structure. And gives you lots of room for other storage, but may be too large for your lot.

RE: portable washer and dryer with a twist.

I have a Splendide 2100XC ... I do recommend you use dryer balls and do not use dryer sheets.Why? 2X ????? From the Splendide consumer tips, "NEVER use fabric softener sheets." My wife has always been happy with our now 14 year old Splendide vented combo. One potential problem I can see with the slide out shelf is vibration. Spin with an uneven load can really shake.

RE: Montana Front Living question...does the bumper hit often

I would suggest you go over to the Montana Owners Club forum and ask the question. I know there have been a few that have had a problem with rear end drag on very uneven surfaces. Some have added skid plates or rollers. But I don't know what floorplans those were. But I don't know that it is any more of a problem on Montana than other 40' 5ers with long rear overhangs.

RE: Fredericksburg Tx

The Fredericksburg RV Park is the most convenient to downtown. And it gets good reviews. Many people say they like the KOA about 3 miles or so east of town, and it also gets good reviews. There is a Jellystone RV park a little farther east and is relatively new. Lady Bird park also gets good reviews and is also convenient to downtown. Lots of choices. Check campgroundreviews.com and look at each, read the reviews, look on google maps for location, and pick one.

RE: Newer 5ers, Slider Hitch Required For Short Beds?

Good friend busted his back window with his short bed, no slider, and older 5er with squared front corners. Traded that for a newer 5er with contoured front corners and no more problem. BUT. He was also more careful on tight back in turns.

RE: Another Ford that needs to be bagged - or a dually?

......... Maybe if you got some new prescription glasses you would have then realized this is a new GMC truck. :B

RE: Vaccinations

Texas is pretty hectic right now. The waiting lists far exceed the supply.

RE: What can you expect off MSRP?

I don't know if RV sales work anything like auto/truck sales, but the 3rd best time to buy a car or truck is the last day of the month as the dealer is trying to make monthly sales quotas. 2nd best is the last day of a quarter for quarterly quotas. And the best is the last day of the year for yearly quotas. Has to do with incentives paid to the dealer from the manufacturers.

RE: 2020 new truck sales

If Chevy and GM combined out sell Ford than GM outsells Ford. Ford claiming they are the top selling truck is kind of a farce. Semantics. Ford says they are the best selling "brand", and they are. Chevrolet is a brand, and GMC is a brand. Chevy and GMC combined is not a "brand". Same as every truck brand saying they have the "best towing in their class", or "highest payload rating in their class", or best "..........". Every wonder how they can all be the best at the same things? They all define what their specific class is.

RE: 2020 new truck sales

Seems like all you see around here are Rams, I would have thought their numbers would be higher. It is highly regional. Saw a state by state map once showing which trucks are more popular by state. Forgot now which states leaned toward which trucks. In this area, there are definitely more Ford. Ram and GM seem pretty even. And I agree with above. Ram trucks are far more likely to have loud (sometimes incredibly loud) exhaust systems. And Ford seem to have more lifted trucks to insane levels. Still trying to wrap my head around both of those.

RE: Towing with a dually or single?need help please

The tow and payload ratings of the trucks keep going up almost yearly. New trucks, SRW and DRW, are far more capable than just a few years ago. A newer single rear wheel (SRW) will be fine for that trailer. But check the ratings for the truck you are looking at. Depending on configuration the ratings can vary a lot for the same year, same model truck depending on cab, bed, engine, drive train, etc. As far as brand, what YOU like best. All three are great, dependable, and capable trucks.

RE: Going back to gasser based on needs (need advice)

I also believe either of those gassers will work for you. With the higher horsepowers and torques of newer engines and the 8 and 10 speed transmissions they are far more capable than just a few years ago. And you were apparently unlucky on the Ford. Except for a bad high exhaust temp sensor (replaced under warranty) my 2012 F350 6.7 with 75,800 miles has been great. But once burned, it is hard to forgive and forget. I get regular emails from my dealer with coupons for $89.95 diesel oil change and $9.95 gasser oil change for DWs Expedition. Significant cost difference. And diesel fuel filter changes are nothing to sneeze at either. Plus adding DEF. And two batteries when time for replacement. Plus the initial $6,000 or so for the diesel. Some good economic reasons for a gasser.

RE: Lost two local TV channels, options?

If you are within 30-40 miles of the broadcast towers (maybe a little farther on flat terrain, or less if hilly/mountainous) just buy an amplified indoor antenna. Did that last time Dish fight over our locals.

RE: Converting a travel trailer to all 120/240 volt electric

Are you planning to get rid of propane also? If not, remember the water heater on propane uses 12 vdc for control board and solenoid and the furnace runs on 12 vdc.

RE: Washer/Dryer combos

I think Splendide is by far the most common unit. And well liked. We have had our Splendide combo 13 years and still works fine. But we are not full timers.
