RE: Banks Electronic Exhaust Brake

Anyone should be able to do the install. It is a matter of routing a couple of wiring harnesses and plugging them in. The hardest part is getting to the plug on the transmission. It’s not that hard to install at all . I installed the banks speedbrake on my 2007 Chevy D\A myself but that said look out for your transmission to start leaking transmission fluid at the connector after the banks harness is installed , the internal side of that connector leaks around the pins and the internal harness has to be replaced to stop the leak , not a huge job but you do have to drop the pan to replace the harness if the pins start leaking after they are disturbed. In my research at the time I learned that it was very common for the fluid to leak past the pins after pulling the connector and reinstalling the banks harness. once the internal harness was replaced the leak stoped and the banks brake worked great for towing a 16k fifth wheel however depending on the settings you use the brake can be very aggressive , Mike

RE: Considering GoodSam Roadside...Questions

Just a note, AAA does not tow RVs in the my area , the northeast, , not sure if that’s a nation wide thing or not?

RE: Good Sam RA Leap!

Double the price, a reward for being a member renewing with them it’s cheaper to join another service and they all use the same contractors, you would think they would offer some incentives to keep the members coming back rather than charge more and have you jump ship ?

RE: Another Reason To Not Have Airbags

Sumo springs work well for us , no air lines and ours are fully disengaged when there is no load in the truck also fairly easy install as well .

RE: Refinancing an RV

We refinanced for a lower interest rate on a 1 1/2 year old fifth wheel back in 2009. We used the financial services that the good sams club offered at the time and the service was poor communication was awful and it took forever but we did get the lower interest rate same term which made a big difference back then not sure how difference you will see currently but good luck

RE: Winhall Brook COE campground VT

Last summer we saw a large DP crease three of his storage compartments trying to get over the bridge . That bridge has a lot of scars and victims but I have seen some very large DP’s and fifth wheels make it with no problem it’s all in the approach too the bridge coming down the hill ! Mike

RE: Winhall Brook COE campground VT

We go there often , all the water and electric sites are on the south side which is across the narrow bridge there are 28 sites with water and electric in a loop on the south side. There are some water and electric sites that are close to the river like across the street from the river but none right on it. The north side has some river side sites but No water or electric the complete north side is dry camping with one water supply a bathroom with showers and a pavilion. This place is still one of our favorite places to camp. You should be able to get over the bridge to the south loop with no problem with your 31 foot rig I used to get a 36 foot 5th wheel over it but it was a bit nerve racking. There is now a dump station on both the south and north sides and the roads have been paved. Mike

RE: Portable suitcase solar panels

Fixed panels are good out in the open but the suitcase setup lets you find the sun if your parked under trees ! Both have benefits .

RE: Best GPS or trip planner to avoid low bridges

Low clearance poi’s adds low clearance locations to your gps as poi’s you pay for the database and the copilot app allows you to create a profile using your own weight and heights and routes accordingly.

RE: Any Return on Investment?

Your repairs which are regular maintenance items may make a marketing difference but after trying to sell a mint condition 5th wheel a few years ago with all sorts of extras and maintenance records it did not seem to make much difference with potential buyers. The floor plan and the trailers weights had a larger impact . Just figure your investing in a safe trip for yourself and your family and hope for the best at resale.

RE: Ram 6.4L 8 speed vs Ford 7.3 to carry truck camper

I really like the the Ford purpose built 7.3 gas, the RAM 6.4 had been around a while but I personally am not fond of of the cylinder deactivation on a HD truck. I did not like the cylinder deactivation at first either but it grows on you after a while and it’s not in play in tow haul mode or if you go to manual and put it in sixth , the newer trucks would 8th .

RE: Ram 6.4L 8 speed vs Ford 7.3 to carry truck camper

I have a ram 3500 drw 2 wheel drive crew with the 6.4 and carry a host mammonth TC over 5k , have no problem with the 6.4 plenty of power and in my configuration just short of 7k payload with the 410”s . if you go with the ram 6.4 and feel you need a rear sway bar there is only the road master available now and there were none in 2018 when I bought my truck due to the 6.4 exhaust configuration I used sumo springs to help reduce sway . Can’t speak on the fords motor . Mike

RE: Newbie Pre Purchase Questions

Chances are pretty good you will have some sort of warranty work at some point with any of the current manufacturers. But buying a tt your not really liking because it’s close isn’t a good idea either .All of our RV’s have been purchased out of state and have had a few warranty issues we just brought them back to dealers for the work . Find the floor plan and manufacturer’s you like.

RE: Electric Fire Places

our is very useful we use it in cold weather whenever we are in a campground with hookups, we do a lot of boondocking , it heats the camper without the use of the propane furnace, and is built in so it’s out of the way and no cords to trip over. Mike
Devocamper 02/09/20 06:51am Fifth-Wheels

We towed our last fifth wheel , gwvr 16000 with both a SRW and then a DRW . The DRW diesel was by far the better tow vehicle hands down . No need to worry about extra weight or carrying water or any of the issues trying to stay under the SRW rawr . The Use of the DRW for daily use was not a big deal for us but we did have a small beater car for when we were home for running errands. Either truck was always parked out of the crowd at stores or restaurants. Never heard anyone complain about having to much truck!

RE: Roadside assist

I just received a notice for renewal of my FMCA roadside plan and was told the price was 129 for 1 year Last year when I signed up I think it was 69 dollars for a year am I wrong has it gone up that much! it’s always cheaper to be a new member than to renew with any of the services seems you get a better deal as a new customer than being a loyal returning customer !
