RE: Standby Sams

What's the point of this post? This was a multi-page thread the last time you asked it: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29934766/srt/pa/pging/1/page/1.cfm beemerphile1 on 08/22/19 08:23pm You asked essentially the same thing a month ago and got no official response. I would suggest you ask it in the "Good Sam Club" section rather than "General RVing Issues". The staff seems to monitor that section although you'll likely only get a canned answer. This post was directed to Ella a "Good Sam Care Team Member" Thought was that I would get a response from a "Care Team Member" Obviously I was wrong. Posted By: azdryheat on 08/22/19 12:36pm Actually, I do everything I can prior to a trip to make sure there are no problems. One thing that happens a lot to trailers is tire failure. On my 5th wheels I've put truck tires on and in seven years and many cross-country trips I've never had a tire failure. Just one example of how I plan ahead. Truck had a full DOT inspection,grease,oil,filter,antifreeze flush and fill, a week before trip. Like you I run LT tires on truck and trailer and had not had a breakdown in 16 years. C.B.

Standby Sams

This post is directed to Ella Good Sam Care Team Administrator. In 2017 I madea trip to Dallas,TX and back to Appleton,WI. For that trip I printed out the Standby Sams in the states I would be traveling through just in case trouble arose. On Aug 6th I left for Pensacola,FL. I could not find Standby Sams to print out states like I had previously done. After inquiring found out the program had been dropped supposedly due to "lack of use". On the way home from Pensacola I broke down in Memphis,TN. It sure would have been nice to have had some Standby Sams available. "Lack of use" of the Standby Sam program I think would be a good thing. How did you determine whether it was being used or not? Good Sam has never inquired whether I've been called by a member or if I have ever called a member. C.B.

RE: Good Sam Standby Sams

I agree with you to a degree. BUT. This is also a perk which helps keep me as a member, buy from Camping World, and staying at Good Sam RV parks. (Which I'm going to be using to Florida & back.) C.B.

Good Sam Standby Sams

I was told yesterday that the Good Sam board of directors have cancelled the "Standby Sams" program. Was told it was cancelled due to lack of use. #1 I would think lack of use in this circumstance is a GOOD thing! #2 I'm sure most members wouldn't think of reporting to the club that they used it. Two years ago we made a run to Dallas TX. I printed out the Standby Sams in the states I was going thru knowing help from people with knowledge about rv's was a phone call away. I for one feel the board should rethink their position on this and reinstate the program. I'm in the planning process for a trip to Florida and would sure like to have a list again. If you agree. Please contact Good Sam Club and let them know. C.B.

RE: Pullrite Superglide or Demco Hijacker?

Pullrite seems to have hitch/unhitching issues, needs separate plate on kingpin, can't tow other 5vr's without plate. What are your recommendations or thoughts? :h Been towing with Pullrite 16K Superglide for 16 years. I have not had a problem hooking up or unhooking. I modified my wedge plate so it is removable in minutes so any 5th wheel hitch can be used to tow my unit.. Two bolts in wedge plate holds plate on pin box. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/9625690/152158540.jpg Pin holds plate in front. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/9625690/151964217.jpg Pullrite now makes wedge plates that are easily removed. With these new plates it isn't even an issue anymore. As far as pulling someone else's unit without wedge plate on their pin box. I use this. Slides in between base rails. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/9016224/124686915.jpg Tightened in and jam nutted to keep slid from moving. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/9016224/124686924.jpg With slide disabled I can tow any 5th wheel.

RE: Generator Obsrevations.

As a contactractor, I can tell you that the inverter Hondas are not only quiet, but they burn about half the fuel of a normal non inverter generator. The price tag is high, but if you use them a lot, the fuel savings will add up quick. A normal generator for building uses five gallons a day. The same sized inverter generator will go two days on the same fuel. You may be right about the Honda but your spelling sucks big time...:D Nothing wrong with spelling. Contac-tractor He's the guy you contact to get a tractor. Generator is optional. Op is right Honda 6500 is one nice unit. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/24736965/412779525.jpg C.B.

RE: storing power cord on new f'ver

My 50A cable is stored on a reel in the pass thru compartment. Dragging that thing out is a chore and is very seldom used. Unless the second AC is needed everything runs on a 50 to 30 amp dog bone with a 25' 30A cable. 30 amp cable is coiled up along with water hose and lay just inside pass thru door. Carry both 30 & 50 amp extension cables in "Little Creeker" trailer. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/24732595/412615161.jpg C.B.

RE: Pullrite or Demco Superslide for a short bed.

The tow issue is easily resolved. The capture plate is easily removed. Having said that, if for whatever reason, you have to use your truck/hitch to tow someone else's 5er, that could be a problem for sure. Mike+ Here's how I resolved the issue using the my Superglide to tow someone else's 5th wheel Made a Slide Stop Adapter so I can tow other 5ers that don't have wedge plate. Front end is notched to fit against Turn table cam arm assembly. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/9016224/152156957.jpg Adapter fits in between slide rails. then is tightened and jam nutted in position to stop slide from working. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/9016224/124686924.jpg Now I can tow any fifth wheel. Someone else towing my 5th wheel. Modified wedge plate for quick install and removal. Drilled holes inside of the wedge of the wedge plate. drilled matching holes in pin box and welded nuts inside of pin box. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/9625690/152158540.jpg Made a pin set up on front of pin box and wedge plate. http://pic80.picturetrail.com/VOL992/4288072/9625690/151964217.jpg If my 5er needs to be towed by someone else,pull pin, take out 2- bolts, good to go.

RE: Pullrite or Demco Superslide for a short bed.

Going into 16th year with 16K Pullrite Superglide. Great hitch, no regrets. I do have Demco's Glide Ride pin box. Very happy with it. C.B.

RE: residential refrigerator vs normal RV fridge/freezer

Residential fridge adds a lot of weight to an RV. I have to respectfully disagree with the above statement. Dometic RM1350S RV Refrig. 13.5 cu.ft. 231 lbs. Samsung RT21M6213SG/AA Res. Refrig 21 cu.ft. 198.4 lbs. There are alot of reasons to have one or the other but added weight of the residential is not one of them. I switched from the Dometic to the Samsung last year. No way would I go back to an gas absorption RV refrigerator. C.B.
