RE: Hate being followed around

When I walk into the store and look around at how expansive the showroom is I think to myself "wow the markup must be huge to afford this" Just food for thought. On the other hand, walk into a store that is shabby and unkempt and think, this place has no idea of quality and probably not a good place to do business. It's all about appearances.

RE: Heating element?

Pull the old out, take it to a good hardware store or home improvement store, and ask for an exact replacement. They come in different wattages, different voltages, and different lengths.

RE: Can I tow this?

Is your truck rated to tow 7800 lbs and support a hitch weight of 832 lbs?

RE: Allison Transmission

RE: Hate being followed around

No two of either are alike. At some they will be there constantly. At some you can’t find help when you need it. A cr@p shoot. Shop at the location with the best selection of what you are looking for. You only have to deal with the salesman a short time. But you are taking the RV home to stay.

RE: Allison Transmission

Have you tried googling that transmission rebuilt? Lots of options pop up.

RE: Diodes between (-) terminals on parallel batteries. Why?

Never seen or heard of anything like that. How many other wires are on those terminals?

RE: Hot weather towing

As long as you have good tires, I would not worry about it. We used to make annual trips from DFW area to Colorado every July towing our 35' 5er behind our F350, traveling from about 7-8 am, reaching Texas panhandle mid afternoon, and usually stopping in stopping somewhere in New Mexico late in the day. Around 10 hours or more depending on where we stopped. Mid day temps across north TX and the TX panhandle were usually 100+ and as high as 106. Truck temperature never went above the normal temp range. Even stopped on a remote section of I-40 for 45 minutes one time due to highway closed for an accident. Michelin tires on both the truck and 5er and tire temps were never overly high as shown on both my TPMS and an infrared thermometer. Relax and enjoy the trip.

First time poster is not allowed to post web links. Does that apply to pictures also?

RE: directions

I use google maps from point A to point B for fastest time. Gives 2 or 3 options. Then I use google maps satellite view and street view to see the actual highway, 2 lane, shoulders or not, 4 lane-not divided, 4 lane divided, thru middle of towns, bypass towns, etc. Then choose the road I like best.

RE: Is this normal?

Tow truck drivers, the good, the bad, the ugly. Generally pretty good. But I had one ugly. My truck needed a tow to dealer. I have a side entry garage and my truck was backed up to the garage, 90 degrees to the driveway. Driver said he would have to hook to the front of my truck and drag it sideways to get lined up with driveway! :E. NO, NO, NO. You will not drag my truck sideways. I will put in neutral and push it by hand down the driveway, I said. Yeah, that might work, he said. :S

RE: Going longer

Depending on where you typically stay, that extra 7’ may be significant or not. Large commercial RV parks will rarely make any difference. Local, COE, state, and national parks along with forest service campgrounds and other remote campgrounds could be a challenge depending on that specific location. And that challenge will depend a lot on your towing and backing skills.

RE: 5th wheel emergency tow Leavenworth In/ Louisville Ky

I agree with googling. A number of years ago my truck stalled on the side of I-40 near OKC. I googled, then called, a couple of towing companies and explained I had a 35' 5er behind my stalled truck. One said no problem, they could be there in 30 minutes. They brought a roll back tow truck for my truck and a pickup with 5th wheel hitch for my 5er. Tow truck took my wife and two granddaughters to a dealer service department. Pickup took me and 5er to nearby KOA, parked the 5er in my assigned site, waited until I hooked up electric and turned on A/C (it was hot), and then took me to the dealer. Dealer provided a rent car under warranty, promised to have my truck ready by the next day, and we had only minor disruptions to our travels.

RE: all breakers blowing

Very hard to believe "all" breakers are tripping. Sounds like the friend is not really aware of what is happening and getting vague long distance info like that is not very helpful in guessing a cause. A mobile RV repair should be called right away before the friend starts trying to troubleshoot it.

RE: Camping World no longer supports Good Sam membership

Haven’t been in a CW since they screwed up an air conditioner install over 10 years ago. No apology. No thank you for your patience. No sorry for the extra 70 mile round trip for 2nd visit to correct the tech incompetence of 1st visit. Just “here’s your bill”.

RE: Financing New Travel Trailer - All I Should Know?

I have never heard of Travel Easy Roadside Assistance. May be good. But do your own checking for reviews. When we bought our 5er years ago it came with a "complimentary" roadside assistance. Don't remember the name. I tried using it once and it was less than useless. Even though I repeatedly told the phone rep exactly in detail where I was located (in a rest area a few miles west of Santa Rosa, NM) she could not figure out where that was and kept asking for an address of the rest area I was stopped in. I finally hung up and started calling around myself. If you want ERS I suggest getting a well known name.

RE: Concerns about golf cart roof in back of pick up

I agree with a couple of ratchet straps front to back. I haven't hauled a golf cart, but have towed a tractor on a utility trailer. The tractor had a fiberglass top that was only attached at the rear to the roll bar and just cantilevered over the front. But two ratchet straps attached to the steering wheel, run up and over the front of the top (one each side), and down the back and secured to the frame of the tractor and the top would ride fine at highway speeds. Since a golf cart top is attached at the front and rear it should be even more secure. Can't comment on the solar panels.

RE: Add washer and dryer

There are several brands of 120 vac RV washers and dryers and washer/dryer combo units. We had a Splendide washer/dryer combo in our 5er for 14 years. Wife loved it. If your TT has washer/dryer hookups, it is easy. If not then you will need first to find a place for it. (RVs that are washer/dryer ready have a closet with plumbing and electrical already installed.) After finding a place you will need to plumb water and sewer to it and electrical. Not a simple task.

RE: 2024 Super Duty Order Banks

I ordered an F150 on July 31, 2021 thinking I was ordering a 2022 model. Got an email mid October from dealer saying Ford had completed 2021 builds and my order was changed to a 2022. I thought 2021 orders had long been closed when I ordered. Got it December 30. Oh well, got a year newer model at about the same time they had said I would get the original order.

And the idiots who keep trying to pose with or even pet the bison. :S
