RE: Size Matters???

36ft 13,000 SRW F350 with the 6.7 diesel. The gas F350 shouldn't be a problem, your more interested in how much weight it can carry, what it can pull is useless. https://i.imgur.com/gbHNKGDl.jpg

RE: Should I Throw In the Towel?

Good to know that KZ uses OSB for the roof deck. That's a pretty low budget build, which means I will cross them off my list. https://www.kz-rv.com KZ's 24-month hitch-to-bumper limited warranty umbrella is the best 2-year warranty in the business, covering more than 1,500 operations codes for a full two years, and protects your investment while you enjoy your new RV. OSB? nope. https://www.kz-rv.com/products/durango-fifth-wheels/construction.html

RE: do LED interior lights have bulbs that can be replaced?

Some of the lenses just snap off, some take about 1/16 of a turn left or right and come off. The ones I have with the center on/off button switch just pop off. https://i.imgur.com/HxOuRuUl.gif

This mount is close enough to the 5W electric in outlet a 25ft cord reaches, I do not have to move the generator to use it.

RE: Running the generator all night

Doesn't Harvest Host have a generator policy? Maybe all or individual, most places I have been say no generators after 10PM.

RE: Can you buy in one state and register in another

I'll keep this as simple as I can, bought in AZ from a WA dealer, signed papers in CA and live in NM. Registration & plates were not an issue, NO ONE wanted to do warranty work. Did you buy from us? No sorry we can't help you, that was an issue, I should haul it 1800 miles one way to get something done.

RE: Roadside Assistance

Road side assistance is my tow vehicle just broke down and I need help. Truck to shop, RV to an RV park. Two tow vehicle on for the truck & a 1 ton dully for the RV. You needed a mobile RV repair or a call to the builders of the levelers for help with the issue.

RE: Electric over hydraulic - anyone using them ?

I did my own install of Performance brakes, round numbers 2K for the kit 1k for 2 day install if you have it done. I did mine in two days at home, had a question during install, called an had my answer from the first one answered the phone. BTW: 7K axle upgraded to 8K for $65.00 (Larger outer bearing 9/16" studs vs 1/2" and lug nuts) Not any one here that has not been cut off or had to stand on brakes hoping you'll get stopped before you hit some idiot. 36ft 5W 13,500lbs best upgrade and I'll never go back to drums. https://i.imgur.com/kHuXcscl.jpg

RE: Satalite tv

We have a 2015 tifton and on extended trip where cable and tv is very limited So my husband not happy Any ideas how to get satalite tv without direct tv or dish Thank you You CANNOT get satellite TV without paying a satellite TV provider. i.e. DirecTV or DISH. DISH does offer a month to month contract. You buy the dome antenna and receiver and then setup an Outdoor account. If you mean you just want to be able to watch cable TV channels then your OTA TV antenna can get you many and streaming can get you the rest, Dish portable then get the Dish anywhere app. Anything I have at home is available on other devices away from home, you do need the home receiver connected to the net. Dish at home the travelers $7 a month add on when I got mine.

RE: F250 or F350 to Haul a 5th Wheel???

With that weighty out will need a one ton vehicle. If you insist on a Ford, a 450 would be a better option. Check out a RAM 3500, when a truck gets picked as “car of the year”, they are trying to tell you something!, RAM car of the year,your not serious are you? Drive through any RV park and count, Ford will out number any other brand. My 1st SD was a 1999 and I still drive them. I try to stay in SRW weights as I do not want the dully and extra tires. At 16K he will need a dully and the F450 would be a good choice for better turning that the F350's http://www.trucktrend.com/features/best-1-ton-pickup-trucks/

RE: Fifth wheel Hitch troubleshooting

Just a thought...are you backing under the kingpin and then lowering it? Or are you backing into the kingpin, lowered so that your TV raises the 5er slightly when you back? I found that backing into the kingpin will cause the hitch to completely snap shut securely. Think about it...that is how truckers do it. I would back until the pin was about to engage, hook up my power connector and set the brake on the 5er, along with wheel chocks to hold it steady while engaging the kingpin. Hope this helps. Works well but just lock the trailer brakes by hand and go for it.

RE: Driving people to boondock by calling themselves a "Resort"

If it has resort in the title I'm out, they are all over priced and all I need is working hookup to explore the area.

RE: RV parking in Reno and Las Vegas

A lot of Nevada casinos have overnight lots where they allow RVs, but that's not a thing in Vegas. Or at least I've never seen it. Your choices are: * Circus Circus RV Park on the strip. It's pretty nasty, but so is the rest of Circus Circus. The only plus is that it's right on the strip. It's a long walk to the nicer casinos though. * The Oasis RV Park at the south end of the strip. It's actually pretty nice, but it's too far to walk to the casinos and you either need to take their shuttle or an Uber/Lyft. * Sam's Town KOA. It's in Sam's Town and not on the strip, but it's actually halfway decent. The KOA itself is just a big sweltering parking lot, but at least it isn't as nasty as Circus Circus. There are two decent casinos on either side of it, or it's a pretty short drive to the strip from there. We've done the overnight boondocking thing in Mesquite on the way to Zion, and it was actually pretty decent. You just need to get there early enough to secure a spot. They also have a FHU RV area, but it's not free and it's harder to find availability. The vibe in Mesquite is very different from Vegas though. It all depends on what you're looking for. Add Clark County Shooting range, off strip but very nice view of the city nights. As a side that is the nicest range I have seen in my life, RV park is by the skeet range. Call ahead for entry & site assignment.

Tried to use an ice ream maker but could not get the 5W freezer cold enough, I had milk shakes.
