RE: Is it legal to get use?

Z, Good observation, no one took notice of that before dispensing "legal" advice.

RE: AA battery life

If you are near a Costco go buy their jumbo pack of Kirkland batteries. Made by Duracell. The go to batteries for high drain devices are Duracell and Energizer, you get what you pay for. The Costco stores here don't have their Kirkland batteries anymore. They have Duracell.

RE: Hitch longevity

My 20000lb Reese is 22 years old and still works fine. I lube the jaw faces and trailer pin 2-3 times a year. I take the head apart every other year and clean and lube all parts. I only use wheel bearing grease. The 2 springs were replaced at 10 years old. I have no plans to replace the hitch anytime soon. We travel from April to November from our home base, usually 5-6000 miles on average per year to many destinations.

RE: GVWR, AXLE Ratings, and Tire Load Range???

Look on the back side of the wheel, you may have to remove it. The weight capacity should be stamped in the metal.

RE: Exhaust Brake Buying...

I had a US Gear D-Celerator on a ‘95 F350 and loved it. Never had a problem with it. In some respects I liked it better than the type of exhaust brake/tow-haul mode on my F450. :):) Had one on my `99 7.3l and it held back okay. My issue with it was it would not open at times at the bottom of the grade. Had to pull over and wait. A second, larger size brake did the same thing. I eventually traded the truck in so someone else had to deal with it.

RE: Is this legal???

I wonder where the OP went, probably scared off by all this "legal" talk. :h

RE: Glacier NP red bus tours

We did a 4 hour tour on the west side and really enjoyed it. The price is worth not having to drive or deal with all the traffic.

RE: Anyone using Sailuns

Thanks for the info guys, think I'll try the Sailuns and see how they do. I know it will be some time but keep us informed.

RE: Camco RV vent covers

I had an older style Camco that opened from the front for cleaning. It lasted 2 seasons and fell apart. I am trying one like your picture now. My other 2 are Maxx Air and have lasted a long time but are cracking at the bolt holes so it won't be long. Our sun is tough on plastics.

RE: Tire replacement

Had to get the Michelin LTX's off as the cracking was terrible. They had 42000 miles out of a 70000 mile warranty. Dealer and Michelin were no help. After a lot of research I bought Toyo Open Country HT's. Good price online, shipped to a close by dealer who did a great job. This was my first online purchase outside of Costco and I am very satisfied. Price was around $900 total with a lifetime alignment plan included.

RE: Cold temp question....just in case

IMO you are good. We have had mid 20's some nights when our trailer was not winterized. I did what you have done and it was fine. Make sure all cabinet doors and inside doors are open.

RE: Towing capacities aren't realistic, completely unachievable

This forum has a better understanding now, than when I became a member. The weight police were not to be disputed!! The sticker police were, and still are very active, but are at least now better informed, as to how these stickers are figured, and how it pertains to actual capability. So many were told they were unsafe, especially concerning the 3/4 tons, with their class 2 restricting GVWR, when in fact, they were the exact same truck, as the class 3 they were told was needed. Yes, a few actually traded, paid the high price, not knowing they just bought higher rated stickers. In any case, common sense, using good judgement, when towing heavy, can keep most of us safe! Just having a huge truck, medium size trailer, does not make it safe, if over driving the conditions, in traffic, bad weather, mountains, etc. I have noticed some of our most infamous WP have left the building, been gone for a while. I wish them well, hope they just moved on, but still in good health! :) Jerry ^^^^^ This! ^^^^^ Totally agree!

RE: Honda Generator EU2000

Their web site states that Seaform stabilizes fuel for up to 2 years. I have gone a year plus without an issue. ??

RE: Television storage and cold temperatures

We have a 32" Visio flat screen that has been in the trailer for 5 years without any issues. We store the trailer outside without any cover and temps. here can go well below 0. I believe that most name brand televisions would give the same results.

RE: Is Directv stopping SD and what to do?

My 2004 5th wheel came with a tube type television when new. It now has a digital Visio. Quite a chore hauling the old one out. Us old timers scratch our heads at a statement like that, obviously you mean cathode ray tube but tube type TVs went away decades before 2004. :) A cathode ray tube is a tube type TV isn't it old timer. Don't scratch too hard. ??

RE: Is Directv stopping SD and what to do?

A 2004 rig should have a digital TV. Direct TV has been sending me emails to send at no charge new receivers. My problem is they cannot tell me which receivers need to be upgraded to receive the new signals from the satelites. My 2004 5th wheel came with a tube type television when new.

RE: West Yellowstone

We stayed at Mountainside KOA last September. It is about 10 miles west of town and has sections with larger sites. Nice views and good management. And it is close to Idaho for side trips. And we had the same problem with Grizzly-- almost full and we would have had to move each night.

RE: GM Certified Pre Owned 2016

Just be aware that not all shops report to Car Fax. A person still has to have a car inspected IMO.
