RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

We're not changing any of our plans. We're just being careful and wear a mask when in public, keep our distance, and use hand sanitizer upon returning.

RE: Dutchman Grand Junction vs DRV Mobile Suitea

Ditto DRV especially since you're looking at model years well before they were bought out by Thor/Heartland.

RE: I need new Tires

Tire was sent to GY and received a check for a replacement.

RE: I need new Tires

Not arguing that, the post was talking about Endurance which doesn't come in 17.5" size. Yes I was running GY G114s until one exploded, approx 4 1/2 years old. Plan was to replace prior to the 5 year mark, but didn't make it.

RE: I need new Tires

They appear to be a Great Tire for mid-weight units, but they offer nothing for heavier unit and nothing in the 17.5 size.

RE: Best Built 5er?

If you get a New Horizon unit, you better get a Sport Chassis or Semi Tractor to haul it as they are HEAVY.

RE: Residential W/D?

What you're looking for are Apartment size units, typically only about 24" wide. They're out there, but many end up switching to the Splendide units.

RE: 5th wheel adapter for goose neck

I think if you research a little deeper, you will find that a lot more states than just Texas require chains. It's considered a "Ball Hitch" and a majority of states require chains with ball hitches.

The SWM 3 requires one coax and one control cable to operate the disk mech. I would pull that plate and see what's there. Redwood installed the control cable and two coaxes, one for living room and one for bedroom from the Factory.

RE: X-chocks and 6 point levelers

You can use X-Chocks with Auto Leveling, BUT you have to re-tighten after leveled then REMEMBER to remove them before retracting the Jacks, if you don't you'll have a HARD time getting them out. Don't ask how I know.

RE: 5th wheel adapter for goose neck

Lippert has approved the Reese Goose Box for use with their Frames.

RE: EGR Deletes

Actually in 2005 there wasn't very much extra junk on the engine. My 2005 Duramax didn't have a DPF and certainly didn't use DEF, so probably the only thing it did have was the EGR.

RE: Fuel mileage 5th wheel vs travel trailer

I pulled a 24' TT, a 30' TT, and a 35' Fifthwheel all with the same truck, a 2005 Chevy Extended Cab Dually with the Duramax and got almost the same mileage with all three, at least not enough difference that you could really tell.

RE: How much do you really need?

Okay, maybe 50 to 60 percent overweight came from Escapee's Smart Weigh Folks in an article they published a while back.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

All I can say is that I put 115K on my last truck and used mainly Walmart DEF and had no problems, so why do I want to pay more because it says "Platinum"

RE: How much do you really need?

It depends on what you mean by "Dry Weight". Are you talking Brochure weights or actual scaled weight as it leaves the Factory?? Our current unit left the Factory 1000 Lbs more than the Brochure weight and on one of the RV Sales shows recently they had a question about the average cargo people carry, and the answer was 2000 Lbs, it really adds up quick. I think using the GVWR is still the best number to use, especially when you consider the like 60 per cent are overloaded.

RE: Real-life experience blocks to aid 6-point leveling system

I carry some blocks to put under the Jack Pads when needed to prevent an out of stroke error. Haven't pulled the wheels up on any blocks in years. When setting up for long term stays, I add blocks under each of the six jacks to minimum stroke, the shorter the jack is extended the less inside movement is felt.

RE: 2014 Keystone - Montana 3100RL -- Chev 2500HD Diesel

Just to give you an example, our Redwood left the Factory at a 1000 Lbs heavier than the listed Dry in the Brochure. I have no idea how they come up with the numbers they put in those Brochures, maybe a random number generator.

Way to many Me, Me, Me people and those that say it's their right to spread Covid by not social distancing or wearing a mask. If you don't want to follow the rules, fine but stay with the rest of you're non-mask wearing friends, BUT stay away from those of us trying our best to not get sick with Covid.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

We're leaving in a week and a half for Florida. Haven't been North for a winter in the past 10 years and don't plan to start this winter. Our Home Base here in Western NY (Rochester/Buffalo area) no longer has any central heat as we sold our wood furnace shortly after starting to winter in Florida. We have a large lot in Florida and won't be confined to our 43' Fifth Wheel, but we'll pretty much stay on our lot reading, gardening, and relaxing during the day.
