RE: Slide Out Toppers ???

Broke camp yesterday am. Was parked in the trees, lots of leaves had fallen and were on top of the slides. Also it was raining so the leaves were lightly adhered to the surface. Went up on the roof in 5 minutes had the 3 slides swept off. Point is under the same conditions there would have been leaves stuck to the toppers if I had them and they would have been rolled up when retracting the slide unless I went up there and swept the toppers off. I had toppers on one RV thought they were great! BUT, two rigs later neither with toppers I DON'T MISS THEM ONE BIT!!!

RE: Water hose

Bought this 90 and quality hose from company mentioned earlier. They also sell quality water filters. Also bought a Watts regulator from them. None of it's cheap but will last many years. http://i.imgur.com/sU5ML9ol.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/gFck8tJl.jpg

RE: Water hose

Make sure these are installed in each end... http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31D%2BqHzdTKL.jpg width=250 That could be the problem they only go on one end.;) Well, just because I'm bored..The OP did state, "The fittings on each end leak" So, yes, there is only 1 on the hose, but probably the washer on the inlet side is also missing - so technically he does need to make sure that he has one on each end. Sorry I could not resist! Yes when connected there should be a washer at each end!

RE: Got new TV

Congrats on the new truck! Should tow that like it's not there! Based on the picture I would raise the hitch 2". The truck is a tad low on the rear and RV is for sure nose low.

RE: Water hose

Camco water hoses are cheap, returned everyone I bought, both white and blue. best hose I ever bought, and well worth the price LINK TO GOOD HOSES Newbies and people sick and tired of stiff hard to roll hoses get these! I personally don't think SS is worth the money. The brass ends are very nice!

RE: Test drove a Cummins last night.

Who gives a darn whose is best? The fact of the matter is that all three manufacturers now incorporate a diesel exhaust brake, making them all safer tow machines. Maybe Ford or GM are better, I don't know, I don't care. I know my exhaust brake is great, especially cause I only have about 9000 lbs behind it. This bickering and brand loyalty is annoying... You have what you like, I have what I like. Can't everyone just get on with their lives? You just need to join the party! This is FUN!

RE: Reciprocating Saw... opinions?

My retirement gift from where I worked was a Dewalt cordless tool kit. It's the 20 volt Li-ion battery set. It came with the hammer drill, 7" circular saw, sawzall, flashlight, 2 batteries, and charger. And I have since bought a 3/8" cordless impact to go with it. I love 'em all!! I used almost everything in the kit when I was tearing down and rebuilding our privacy fence. The sawzall worked great for cutting the fence into lengths that were easier to work with. The circular saw was great for zipping through the 4x4 posts, and never lacked for power. It was so nice to pick up the tool and not have to worry about running an extension cord for power. They're only a little over 3 years old now, but still going strong, including the batteries. The 20V DeWalt tools are awesome! What is also nice about them they are starting to make a lot of them in the US again!

RE: Tow limit concern

I read the OP's post a lot differently than everyone else on here. I read the first line that said they're new to the RV world, then skipped down to the line about the trailer they're looking at. IMO, I would not begin my RV life by going straight to such a large trailer. Start smaller, get it figured out, and work your way up to something larger. I don't want to be sharing the road with someone who's first experience pulling an RV is a 36' fifth wheel. Proper tow vehicle to begin with makes a huge difference. Starting out with a marginal setup I totally agree!

RE: Disc Brake Actuator

To compare actuators, one must have used 2 or more. I can't imagine that many have done that. I have the Titan and it's just fine. No need to compare. The kit was supplied with it. And as far as brake pads, even the worst will be a vast improvement over the cheap c**p drum brakes they pass off as brakes. I will agree on the with **** pads being a vast improvement over electric brakes! But once you experience better braking it's hard to accept good.

RE: Newbie question: Flying J pump menu

Fly J takes my card at the pump and gives me 8 cents off the cash price. I have no issues with spilling. To clarify, you can PAY and pump in the truck lanes at the truck stops without going inside?

RE: Mud Flaps/Rock Guards

Depends on where you are going. Installed serious rear flaps before first trip to Alaska knowing there would be plenty of gravel roads along the way. For lower 48, hardly necessary except to minimise well, um, mud & dirt from wet highway driving on the trailer. Just had to show this http://i.imgur.com/dm9NYgel.jpg

RE: Mountain RVing advice.

The fact is out in the Mountains you will have your foot mashed to the floor going up the Passes. Transmission will pick the gear. Just sit back and watch the fuel gage drop like a rock. Have fun!

RE: Pantry Door / Drawers

We installed these from Home Depot on ours a couple of years ago and they work perfect: http://pic100.picturetrail.com/VOL1523/6528899/12657597/408297788.jpg You can get them to match your other hardware - surface bolt Stanley. Just make sure the throw is long enough, as there are several different brands and type. Nice job, looks OE!

RE: Mud Flaps/Rock Guards

DuraFlap makes some nice HD flaps. Lots of design options. Keeps the truck and RV protected. http://i.imgur.com/4d74GiWl.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/HNy7uEgl.jpg

RE: Disc Brake Actuator

I talked to Kevin at Kodiak when doing the brakes on my 97.5 MS and asked about his "BEST" pads he said people would not pay for them so they only offer good and SoSo. He then suggested the NAPA BEST Semi Metallic. Randu that's a lot of wear in 10K but if the pads work well who cares!

RE: Test drove a Cummins last night.

That video was a joke at best. Let's see a test with real results! Here you go. From the Pickuptrucks.com heavy duty challenge. Eisenhower Pass Davis Dam On both challenges the Ram had more brake touches going down than the competition. What were the gear ratios of the three trucks. GM 3:73 Ford? RAM? All 3 trucks had 3.73's. Thanks!

So cummins what say you? :B I say they still do have the BEST EB but they need to improve the programing. I place my trans in the same gear going downhill I came up the other side set cruise at 55 and let it roll. Holds 32K no problem on 6% grades.
