RE: retained fumes in garage?

Two different toy haulers over 8 years, 6 different ATVs and never had fuel smell from any of them over thousands of miles.

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. ^^This Many a truck owner with a busted window and dented cab did the safety check in the parking lot thing. What you cannot account for is one of the tires being lifted by uneven ground and the cap of the trailer tilting into the back of the truck. I'm not throwing shade at the whole idea of going without a slider... just pointing out the limitations of a test. Basically, even if you think you're in the clear you still must pay attention. Yep, what they said. This is exactly what happened to me.

RE: Hubodometer

You would think with all the tech they are putting in newer trucks they could log trailer mileage. My '17 F250 has that capability. If you have more than one trailer, it logs mileage info for each, you select what trailer you happen to be pulling that trip.

RE: 04 FS3000

From what I remember most of the frame issues were in the lightweight line. I had an FS 2600 and had zero issues with the frame. I had several friends with FS3000's and they did OK as well.

RE: Bedroom AC?

Yep, we have common ducting. When running only one at a time BR A/C is felt more in L/R than L/R A/C is felt in the BR.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

While you do lose bed space with a 5W, even with the hitch, I still have room for an aux fuel tank / tool box, a 2nd spare & other stuff. The other advantage of a 5W-truck is once you unhook, you can find cheaper fuel, with a large MH getting into smaller fuel retailers can be difficult.

RE: Spinning lug nut.....how can this be possible?

Same thing happened to me. The sheet metal cover was spinning. I was lucky, this happened to be home & I have a large selection of sockets (metric/ SAE/ 6-12 point) I managed to drive a socket (took a couple of trys) over the whole mess that allowed me to get the lug loose. Now, getting the lug nut out of the socket was another story. And even after all that, it still looked pretty good. I replaced all the lugs on my 5th wheel with solid one piece lug nuts after that experience.

RE: How long to return to camping after open heart surgery

I haven't had heart surgery, but had a surprise surgery for an arterial clot in my leg. That kept me down for a bit. It can be hard to deal with what feels like a slow recovery, I dealt with that during chemo for chronic leukemia. My advice is look at your recovery like eating an elephant- one bite at a time. Set reasonable goals that you can accomplish so you can see your improvement. And you will see improvement.

RE: Purchased TT (undisclosed salvage title came in the mail)

All of you forget that insurance companies also insure for theft, so it is entirely possible that an insurance company can get a vehicle as a theft recovery with no damage. Just because an insurance company has possession doesn't mean it was "totaled".

RE: FDA lists brands of dog food linked to DCM

Good idea to get this info out there, as it doesn't seem to have made the news. Our vet told me about this a couple of months ago when we were discussing high protein levels that showed up in my elderly dog's blood test. End result was the premium food we had switched to was the cause. Went back to an "average" food and things returned to normal. What we need to remember is dogs are designed to be scavengers and eat everything they can catch / find, so unless your vet tells you your dog needs to be "grain free" or on something special, feed them normal food.

RE: Is the EV transformation of the market over hyped ?

All hype. I recently had the chance to talk EV with a Tesla owner. He is mixed, driving back and forth to his office is fine. Driving to CO from Los Angeles was a PITA due to the need to charge. He also told me the reported range is nowhere near actual range. Kinda like the estimated EPA gas mileage VS real life. With all that being said, when the wife's current vehicle is due for replacement, we will consider an EV, as her weekly mileage is very predictable, and if we take any trips, it's on the F250, so range isn't a big issue. EVs have a way to go before they replace ICE vehicles.

RE: Kz Durango 2500

I have a 2018 Durango 2500. Taken it on several trips, about 9K miles. No real issues, very happy with our our purchase. Not a lot of gingerbread, but its put together well. Check out the KZ owners forum, http://kzfamilyforum.com/ as well as the FB page. Both have straight answers, not full of "fan boys".

RE: Free 1996 35’ Gulfstream Innsbrook.. worth it?

Everything is obsolete, so parts for the appliances / A/C are non existent. Much as I like to see vintage stuff, No reason to save it, as it's to far gone.

RE: RV reviews.

Try doing a search for owner's sites for each manufacturer. While each has its cheerleaders there will undoubtedly be complaints, issues and honest opinions from owners.

RE: Warranty service disaster, please help!

Hire a lawyer and things will grind to a halt because everyone goes into defensive mode. lawyers have no desire (or financial incentive) to end things unless there is a big payday at the end and really, unless we are talking about a $2M DP I don't see a big payday. Have you contacted the manufacturer and detailed your problems with the dealer? Perhaps they can send you to another dealer. For what a lawyer would cost, you could probably take it to the factory yourself and have everything fixed.

RE: Slide out adjustment

I have seen slides that are adjusted like that. I agree, not the best, but it happens. Lots of variables with slide rooms, the installation of the rails, the room itself, the RV's walls. I assume you know, be careful adjust slides, an adjustment here can cause issues somewhere else. My questions are: How does it look / seal up when closed? Did this just happen or do you think you just happened to notice it now?

RE: Newbie question about touring with 5th wheel

I have a 35 as well, and while it can be inconvenient, it sure beats the 20' we previously had.

RE: First RV Purchase - Need Advice - Venture RV Stratus

I have a Durango 5th wheel (built by KZ) very happy with it. While I haven't had any issues, others on the KZ owners site have had great support from KZ. I feel KZ delivers a lot for the money. They are a smaller manufacturer, although they have been bought by Thor, (who seems to be leaving them alone). Lots of Texans on the KZ site, so you should feel right at home. http://kzfamilyforum.com/

RE: What is the problem with Camping World?

I have never bought an RV from CW, but when we were looking, they were they only ones who made a follow up call when they found what we wanted. But we had already found and bought what we wanted. In regard to parts, during my last visits to three different locations I noticed a lot of empty spaces and if there was something there, there didn't seem to be lot of it. For example, my buying 2 propane pigtails and 2 adapter fittings exhausted their supply. Only having minimal inventory makes me wonder about C/W. My local RV dealer has a much deeper inventory, and their prices are better, so even if I had a C/W close, I doubt I would go there.

RE: Electrical Issue

Short answer is yes you do. Assuming you have a good 30-20 adapter, experience has taught me that 90% of the time it is a water heater element that has failed, next is the electric element in the refrigerator. Quick troubleshooting is to turn the water heater breaker off and unplug the refrigerator, then plug the coach back into the GFI and see if it trips. If the GFI trips with refrigerator unplugged & WH breaker off time to look at power cord / adapter & overall wiring. If not, turn on the WH breaker and see if the GFI trips. If not plug the refrigerator in and again see if the GFI trips.
