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.

RE: Can't find black and grey tanks.

Is it possible the unit was setup on a seasonal site and the previous owner was plumbed directly and removed the holding tanks??

RE: ST Tires ???

I have seen Sailuns from three different Countries: China, VietNam, and Thailand. I had planned to replace my G-114 with the same come this spring, but the blow out moved that schedule up, and with the issues we had with the rims and the deal that was offered on the Sailuns with rims, just couldn't pass up the deal.

RE: ST Tires ???

cummins2014: Yes it would have been on both the Montana and Redwood Forums. Part of the reason for the switch: We had two Rim failures, I.E. pin hole in the casting, one which didn't show up for 3 years, so we had no faith in the wheels them selves. A new Distributor in Elkhart was offering an H rated 17.5 Sailun on a new rim, mounted, balanced, and delivered to the Campground for less than the cost of just a GY G-114 and with all the good reports I thought I'ld take a gamble.

RE: ST Tires ???

I might well be the one mentioned a few post back about a blown G-114, it was actually 4 1/2 years old with approx 40K miles on it. Were doing 65 on the Ohio Turnpike, all tires running within a couple of degrees of each other and also within a couple of pounds. Just suddenly "Boom" a pieces of rubber flying. Only took out the plastic fender skirt which I got replaced for free at the Rally we were headed to. Tire was sent to GY, who upon checking sent a check for a replacement. Mean time we installed all new Sailun H rated tires and new wheels.

RE: ST Tires ???

That looks like one of the Bolts that goes up through the Slide Out Frame into the Silde Side Wall.

RE: Experience towing w/ 2WD F250, 2500 or other 3/4 ton

I've used 4 wheel drive more times getting into a tight camping site than I have for getting unstuck. 4 wheel low will get you into almost any site at an idle, nice an slow with full control.

RE: What Size RV is Right for Full-Timing

Our 1st fifth wheel was our 2955RL Monty, thought it was perfect, only 2 slides and could be used with the slides in if needed. First Winter Snowbirding we found a problem with lack of sufficient counter space for preparing meals. So we went bigger with three slides and much more counter space.

RE: anyone else had this happen to them

Quick question: Was it a carbon monoxide detector or the propane gas detector? Either way a problem, maybe the wind was blowing the flame out allowing gas to flow.

RE: Let's talk generators - again.

I wonder if using Non-Ethanol fuel would help. I try to use only non-ethanol fuel in my lawn mowers, chain saws, weed wackers etc. Had to replace a fuel line in a chain saw because of the ethanol.

RE: Service, landing gear down, or while still hooked to truck?

I feel better with the RV connected to the TV while servicing the suspension. While not likely there is always the possibility of the landing gear failing, no chance of the TV failing.

RE: Honda 3000eu issue using a bonding plug

OK, let me understand: The Generator was running and then you plugged in your RV using the Neutral/Ground bonded plug? If that is correct, are you sure there wasn't something on in the RV that caused a surge of current when the plug made contact with the Generator outlet?

RE: Looking to upgrade to a fifth wheel.

Your Wife, Kids, and Dogs aren't going Camping with you?? Since you're only adding your weight.

RE: Let's talk generators - again.

Not really. Per the Onan specs at full load the Propane drinks 1.1 gal per hour, while a gas powered of the same model drinks .9 gal of gas per hour. We don't have to carry Gasoline and find a place for the Gas Tank, and don't plan to run ours for extended periods, like just recently we've had several power failures lasting several hours. Go to the RV and make supper running the Genny.

RE: Let's talk generators - again.

I don't know about some of you Guys. I'm a 71 year old Female and I just had one of my 40Lb tanks refilled and I installed it back into it's compartment, heavy YES, but doable.

RE: Let's talk generators - again.

We have the on board Onan 5500 and when running both ACs (15K units) we will go thru a 40Lb tank in about 10 hours.

RE: Another generator thread? yea, want your ideas, please?

The few times we've stayed overnite at Wal-Mart, it cost us more shopping in Wal-Mart than a Campground would have cost. But back on subject: We have the on-board Onan 5500 which will run just about everything. Don't use it alot, but really nice when you do, just push the button and you have power.

RE: Hitch choice

If you keep the King Pin just a fraction below the hitch plate and let the King Pin ride up as you back into it, you'll never "High Hitch".

RE: A/C flipping breaker

Before changing the Breaker, pull the panel off the Distribution Box where all the Breakers are, and with AC power removed from the unit, check the tightness of the wire connections on the breaker that's tripping, and while in there check all the other Breakers too. Had the same exact problem with a Dryer in a Mobile Home and that was all the problem was, just loose connection causing excessive current and tripping the breaker.

RE: Short Beds w/out Sliding Hitch

Generally turning while on flat ground isn't a problem, what creates the problem is when you're backing into a spot that isn't level with the road, so when the TV twist one way, while the RV twist the other is when you run the greatest risk of contact.
