RE: First Cat Scale Weigh In

There you go 4619 for your max cargo capacity, sounds a little better.

RE: First Cat Scale Weigh In

Sorry, but there should still be another door label with the wording: "Total weight of passengers and cargo should not exceed XXXX Lbs"

RE: Best Fiver these days

The best RV is the floor plan that suits your needs and is in your price range. The all have issues some more that others, but even the Top Top of the line units still have their problems. There was a Luxe in a recent Trailer Life that was over $200K MSRP.

RE: First Cat Scale Weigh In

Doesn't look like there was a question from the OP, just posting numbers from his first weigh. I questioned why his 2018 3500 Dually had a cargo cap over 1000 Lbs lighter than mine. And some others questions some of the other numbers.

RE: First Cat Scale Weigh In

allen8106, I have to ask where did you get the 3,719 - Max Cargo?? I have a 2018 High Country 3500 Dually and right from the door pillar mine is Payload 4930 Lbs.

RE: Residential Refrig

When we first got our current unit with Res Whirlpool fridge and 2 no-name 12V Batts, I did a test: Ran the Fridge for 36 hours without shore power, but using no other 12V items and Batts were still at 12.5V. Our Fridge draws 11 amps from the Batteries when running, but only on for a short period per hour.

RE: Question on Lippert 3 Auto leveling system

There is a fault in the Lippert software for their Auto Leveling systems. We've had it happen to our Hydraulic system, it will let the legs go down and level, but when you go to retract it will start that give an error that the angle is to great. Talked to the Lippert Hydraulic expert and he told me to put the system into the Calibrate mode and I could retract the legs. So if your 3.0 Electric system has a Calibration mode you could try it.

RE: Suspension & Shocks: doing maintenance & upgrades. Suggestions?

I have read many, many posts where folks add this, then add that, and even more and when they get done they have spent almost as much as it would have cost for the IS in the beginning. Now if you're camping is mainly local and low mileage, yes IS is overkill, but if you plan on lots of miles and long distance you can't beat the IS.

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.
Michelle.S 02/18/20 07:29pm Fifth-Wheels
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.
