RE: Closet walls pulling away from structure

Heat is a funny thing here in the west. I have wallpaper that is wrinkling on the upper section of my 5th wheel in the bedrooms. It is not leaking but sliding down the wall just a bit from the heat. Took it in for some inspection and they said it is not unheard of for them to do it here with the heat. They said to change the direction of how we park it to change where the heat is hitting the trailer. Curly

Tucson to Depoe Bay, Oregon

Looking for the best way to get from Tucson next year to Depoe Bay, Oregon avoiding going through Las Vegas or Los Angeles. Pulling a 5th wheel and would like a good route with some campgrounds along the way. Not wanting to drive more than about 400 miles per day. Thanks in advance, Curly

RE: Power awning if fabric tears

Thanks all!!

Power awning if fabric tears

I have not seen this question asked but then again, I may have missed it. When we were on a trip with an older trailer with a manual pull out awning, we were on the road so the awning was retracted when a passer by wanted us to pull over. We did and found the top of the fabric on the awning was tearing and the brackets were starting to fall down on the side of the trailer. I had some plastic tie wraps and good old duct tape and secured the brackets after I cut off all the fabric so we could continue on with our trip. My question is...on the new power awnings, there are no holes through the support arms so if the fabric holding the awning next to the trailer starts to come apart, how do we secure the arms against the trailer? I know, a lot of words for a simple question but I sure would like to know what to do if this happens. Much thanks, Curly

RE: Wheel Bearings

I know this has been asked or said before but I am old and can't remember .....why can't they use regular automotive style wheel bearings like in our cars and trucks? I had a truck that had 165,000 miles on it and never had to replace/pack either front or rear bearings. Here goes the can of worms..... Thanks, Curly

best 5th wheel hitch for std. bed 2500HD Chevy

Can I please get some opinions on the best 5th wheel hitch for a Chevy 2500HD double cab with a standard bed? Trailer weight is under 10,000 lbs. Prefer a slider just in case. Have a Reese pro 15 on my old truck and will be trading it in for a new one. Thanks in advance, Curly

RE: What happened to all the posts

This was good for general questions and to a point some more specific regarding coach and tow vehicle manufacturing issues/problems. Got some good tire info from here as well as general maintenance tips, too. Hated to see the usual gas/diesel truck fights. I suppose as winter visitors come south we may see more banter here. Curly

RE: New Tires - too many options

I am guessing you had Michelin on your truck as original? Curly

RE: Different kind of Jack-knife

I don't understand why the truck manufacturers are going with such large wheels and tires. I have 16" on my good 'ole truck and when I started looking for new trucks, the wheels range from 17" to 20" for 2500HD trucks. That 3" can really through you off with your bed rail to trailer spacing. Hard to find new trucks with smaller wheels.

What happened to all the posts

Is it me or are the number of posts declining here? Do I need to adjust my settings or is everyone doing something else? Thanks, Curly

RE: Seam sealant

Thanks very much!

Seam sealant

I have an older 5th wheel that needs to have the seams sealed along the outside of the fiberglass where the plastic or outside metal trim is attached. What is a good sealer to use where the factory sealer is now falling out or dissolving? Would Dicor lap sealant be a good choice or should I use something else? I want to keep the new seam as narrow as possible. Thanks, Curly

RE: Beef up (fish plate) ā€œIā€ beam frame

That doesn't say much for the manufacturers if they do "under spec" the frames and other components to save money,although it is much the same with auto manufacturers. Even if you think "you get with you pay for", that really doesn't mean anything anymore. Manufacturers will still use the cheapest **** they can get away with like putting lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig even though it is pretty. Curly

RE: 2020 Chevy 2500HD Gas

You can tell the difference on a long pull for sure. The standard six speed trans was a blessing but it is really good with the 4.10.

RE: 2020 Chevy 2500HD Gas

I did see the 6 speed but can't grasp why the 3.73 and not the 4.10. Love the 4.10 in old faithful and don't want to go backwards. The truck before this one had the 3.73 and was not fun towing with it. Thanks, Curly

2020 Chevy 2500HD Gas

Have been doing some research on new Chevy 2500HD gas trucks and have noticed the rear end ratio seems be 3.73 now, not 4.10, in most dealer inventory. I think I would still like the 4.10 unless there are reasons that I am not aware of with the new engine. Any thoughts? Thanks, Curly
