RE: Picking up our new rig

We are picking up our new rig in a day or so. Post photos when you get it home.

RE: Class A stuck next to house!

We laugh now, but it wasn't too funny while it was happening. If only we humans could fix that . . .

RE: Husband/wife Audio of Parking our 44' toy hauler

I get the hands held apart and then slapped together all at once too... Ah, there's 2 of us.

RE: Class A stuck next to house!

The video was fun to watch. I thought the tow would pull you right into its rear end for a moment.

RE: Husband/wife Audio of Parking our 44' toy hauler

My wife, however does an amazing job spotting for me. She parks the trailer by voice and I just try to make the truck/trailer do it. We’ve learned a lot over the years in our communication with each other. Same here actually - we're getting better at it. My comment was just that compared to the lack of conflict with the original poster, We've had troubles.

RE: Husband/wife Audio of Parking our 44' toy hauler

I wish I had my dash cam on the last time I backed in at home. It is a narrow, tricky, right-angle turn. The GF was watching my TT tires near the cement landing to our stairwell so intently that I hit the roof gutter. I had to remind her to look around while the rig was going backwards. The other sweet thing she does is hold her hands apart the way one does to show how much more room there is to go, and then she abruptly slaps them together at the last minute. I love her. http://www.winecountrystarparty.com/images/ttscope.jpg height=500 There it is all tucked away. The cement landing is at the base of the stairs. The rain gutter is the brown/rust colored feature above. Some of our interactions while backing in here are "colorful". I need one of those shirts that reads, "I am sorry for the things I said while backing up the trailer".

RE: Does this qualify as "sway"?

That's, literally, a 10 second video with no detail, no background, no nothing, so how can a person comment on anything other than "Wow, a wreck". Agreed (3 seconds of action)

RE: Stove fan

I have replaced the fan motor a couple times... During my repair, I removed the entire hood. Obviously not required now that I have done it once. I was looking for a thermal fuse, but never found one.

RE: Stove fan

Finally got it replaced. The amperage rating on the "new" motor was higher than the dead unit, so I was/am a little wary. Runs strong. This is the 6th repair I've done on my trailer. internal trim piecetongue jack groundwater heater control boardexternal trim piecefan motorpropane fittings

RE: Difficulty getting the tow ball to release from hitch

:E Oh my gudness, it is the Intern net Spull chuck sundrom... Get a life.. My wife once got an email from her medical director (an MD) with a couple of misspelled words. In her response, she corrected his spelling. Her next email from him, a couple of days later, had EVERY WORD misspelled. She said it probably took him an hour to compose. Whut?

When you need water and a waste dump . . .

Perhaps it is just that my favorite spot is not near a convenient place to get water or dump my tanks, I wonder what process you use to find a dump station while on the go. Do you just look online? Do you plan your trips around knowing where the next dump station is? I'd like to start using my trailer where I stay 3 nights, move, dump, stay 3 more nights, move, dump, etc. Do you tend to "wing it" or know what facilities are on your route?

RE: I need a large 5th wheel but am I looking too large?

Do yourself a favor and find and visit an RV show. Look at many units and eventually you will find what you are looking for. Exactly. I went to a show convinced I wanted a toy hauler travel trailer (bumper pull), and wound up buying a bunkhouse.

RE: I need a large 5th wheel but am I looking too large?

I gassed up next to a triple axle 5th wheel that I'd guess was 45 feet long. I told the owner that my trailer wanted to be his trailer someday when it grew up. He took that as an invitation to tell me that he regrets such a large rig, mostly when choosing the wrong street or pulling into a gas station that isn't really right for him.

RE: RV Ovens

The height of our oven is so narrow we can't hardly fit anything in there. Browning bread in such a narrow space is completely uneven.

RE: Miles per day.

Towing with the rig in my signature, 250-300 miles per day. Last trip was just over 300 miles and it took us 8 hours including rest stops. As a kid, my brother and I drove to Montana from San Francisco, non-stop. 1000 miles in 24 hours. I was 17 then.

RE: CW False Advertising, Marcus should be p,ssed

And why does Camping World email me saying the item I've reviewed has had its price lowered? Are they that desperate?

RE: RV lifestyle...

We do enjoy seeing the folks that have pink flamingos and palm trees. No judgement - just not us. Ditto. I watched a guy set up his whirly-gig wind toys and flamingo-like ornaments. He did it really fast. He was skilled and experienced in setting up all the ornaments quickly. In a way I envied him since it seemed he was productive, but on the other hand, I knew I would never put up such stuff.

RE: Truck with 5ver towing a boat

I doubt hardly anyone carries flares, and few carry reflectors. I carry flares.

RE: tounge jack not working

Mine "failed" a year ago, and it was just the ground wire in the jack motor housing.
