RE: Inverter location

My inverter is mounted on the Front Bulkhead of the Front storage area, right on the opposite the batteries. So just a short jumper through the bulkhead to the batteries.

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

And probably has all those items to increase your milage from the 70's Friends had an F250 with the V10, pulled his 5er great, but couldn't get past a gas station.

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

My issue with the RV Lanes I've seen at Flying J is that fact that they are the one farthest in from the entrance and with all the cars parked in front of the store making it difficult to get into an out of. We've had trouble when we only had a 25' TT and standard cab long bed TV. Wouldn't even thing about trying it with our 43' 5er and long bed crew cab dually.

RE: ? Have you purchased from Walnut Ridge or Modern Trailer Rv

I would bet those two rear hitches are the same, just advertised differently, one with the 300 Lb Tongue weight, the other with 3000 Lb pull capacity. Which are the same hitch used any many fifthwheels, 300 Lb tongue/3000 Lb pull cap. And I would take the Hydraulic Leveling system over the electric any day.

RE: Shower drain clog.

Be careful with a coat hanger or snake in an RV because of the use of the HepvOĀ® valve in place of a P or S Trap. Using a coat hanger of snake will destroy that valve and allow orders into your unit.

RE: Load Range G Tires

Date code was 4914 and did send the tire to GY and they sent a check for the value of a replacement. We ended up replacing all tires and rims, since we had several OEM rims that developed pin hole leaks, so we lost faith in those wheels. Got a great deal on 5 Sailuns mounted and balanced on new wheels. Sailun and new rim were less than a G114 alone.

RE: Load Range G Tires

Well I was running the even more expensive H G114 tires. Running on the Western end of the Ohio Turnpike at 65 MPH, all four tires were running closely for both pressure and temp when a shotgun went off and pieces to tire were flying. Totally threw the tread right down to the steel cord. Tire was 4 1/2 years old and was planning on replacing all during our Winter Down Time in FLA. Morale of the story, even the best tires can self destruct.

RE: problem with electric water heater-Fixed but new problem

Just recently went through this, water just wasn't as hot as usual and over the next few days even less so. Ordered and replaced the AC T-stat and now nice hot water on AC.

RE: Load Range G Tires

If I had G614s on my rig, I'd be comfortable running them for 10 years. I was running the 17.5" G114s and thought I could get 5 years, will last summer one blew like a shotgun going off. Lucky, min damage and GY did cover the replacement tire cost, but opt'd to give the Sailun's a try.

RE: can someone please explain this for me?

With Fifthwheels, it's not so much "How Much You can Pull', but "How Much can You Carry". A 12.5K 5er would have a typical pin of approx 2500 Lbs, which in may cases would exceed you carrying capacity, while that 10.6 would have a typical pin of just over 2K that would most likely be within your specs.

RE: asking for suggestions/opinions

I will actually answer your question: Yes we had two TT, a 24 Ft and then a 30 Ft before we upgraded to a 5er. Pulled both TTs with a 1500 Chevy long bed, it did the job but after a long days travel I was beat. Up graded to a 3500 Dually (got a better deal than ordering a 2500) in prep for a 5er. Now it handled the TT with ease and now where as beat at the end of a days travel. Then came the 5er, BIG difference in towing and handling, but a learning curve in backing. But now would never go back to a TT after towing close to 100K miles with a 5er.

RE: Question regarding residential refrigerators

Just be advised that while Generators in Toy Haulers are Gas, most in standard 5ers run off Propane. A 5500 Onan will run just about everything in the unit, but it will burn through a 40# propane tank in approx 10 hours.

RE: Washer/Dryer worth it?

After our first Snow Bird attempt of 3 months, we order a Combo Unit on our why back North. That was after a few things were ruined because of grease in the CG machines. Put another Combo in our next unit and now have the two individual units and wouldn't be without them. Do a small load every couple of days, no keeping dirty clothes for a week or more before going to the laundry mat.

RE: F450 vs F350 SRW payload

Have a question: If both the 350 and 450 have the same GVWR of 14000 Lbs and the 450 is a heavier truck, don't know by how much, but doesn't it stand to reason that the 350 can carry more pin weight, thus a bigger Fifthwheel??

RE: potty without the rv

When we were pulling a Pop-up we always had a Cap on out Truck with a Port-a-Potty. Got a lot of use. Once we moved up to a TT we just used the facilities with-in.

RE: Flying J and Pilot moving toward B20 diesel?

Actually straight Diesel is getting harder and harder to find. Stations can sell up to 5% Bio and don't have to have a label on the pump. So while you may think you're getting Grade A #2 Diesel you may well be getting 5% Bio.

RE: Heated Mattress Pad

We've been using a heated mattress pad on our Sleep Number for the past 10 years.

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

In our Home State of New York any combo over 26K requires an "R" endorsement, but I don't know a single friend who has it an just about all are over that mark.

RE: Trailer upgrade

I agree with Lady RVer, if you go with the Montana and have even the slightest of issues you will hear about it from the DW.

RE: Questions about pulling a fifth-wheel with a half ton TV

D. Steiner, I agree. Watched some folks pull out from the CG we're at with a Cadillac Escalade EXT Pickup. Fairly large TT, no Equalizer Bars or Sway Control, rear bumper of TV almost dragging the ground and headlights pointed at the stars. Would not want to be anywhere near that on the highway.
