RE: TV tire life

Generally speaking, tires should be replace every 5 - 7 years due to age, regardless of tread wear. I have the Michelin Defenders on our truck and I'm very happy with them. My only complaint is that the tread is a little more open that the OEM Cooper tires so they pick up gravel more on gravel surfaces (like in campgrounds, etc.). My BIL who is a veterinarian/farmer/RVer/truck rebuilder won't use anything but the Michelins on his truck, either. Rob

RE: Help Ram 2500 6.4 gas vs diesel

A TT only has 10-15% of it's weight on the tongue, a 5er has 20-25% of its weight on the pin, so the same payload on the truck gets you a bigger TT than 5er. You've got too many plates spinning here....first figure out what size trailer you want and whether TT or 5er, then figure out if you need to upgrade the truck. You said the truck did fine with the TT you rented, if you buy one that's similar there's no need to upgrade the truck. If you decide that you like a 5er better, then decide which one you want to buy and from there you can decide SRW/DRW and gas/diesel based on the specs of the trailer. This^^. I wish I had stated it that clearly. Rob

RE: Help Ram 2500 6.4 gas vs diesel

Skip the 3/4-ton trucks if you're going diesel. The diesel drivetrain, though a joy to tow with, is heavy and really eats into the payload of a 3/4-ton truck. As suggested, go straight for a SRW 1-ton with the diesel if you do trade. Towing larger RVs - especially fifth wheels - it's all about payload. Rob

RE: need 411 on Winegard Pathway X2 PA6002R Wally Receiver

We are full-timers and have used that combo for years. Great set-up. As stated, the Pathway X2 is the best of the automatic portables for Dish Network. Rob

RE: El Paso, TX

RVParky.com I don't know how close you need to be to El Paso, but we spend a lot of time in Las Cruces, which is about 45 minutes north of ELP. Rob

RE: Solidtude 390RK

I can't answer your question specifically but we really like our new to us 2018 Solitude 310GK. Grand Design owners have a very active forum here: Grand Design Owners Forum You'll probably get more specific answers to your particular model there. We're on our Second Grand Design fifth wheel and will echo Ron's sentiments on our Solitude. Ron - time to change your signature?... Rob

RE: Adding washer and dryer to FW

What makes a washer or dryer "RV-specific?" They operate on 120VAC and will fit in the space you have. We have Whirlpool stackables (vented dryer) since our fiver has a dedicated W/D closet designed for that configuration (and it's on the opposite side from the heaviest slides). Rob

RE: Air lift to 5th wheel with Mor-Ryde

There are several different flavors of MORryde suspension. Are you talking about the independent suspension or the CRE3000 or SRE4000 equalizer systems? If independent suspension (which we have), I don't see any way of adding air bags to the trailing link suspension geometry. Rob

RE: Route 209 PA thru Delaware Water gap

We have pulled that route several times with a 36 ft. fifth wheel. All the signs and postings pertain to commercial vehicles. Our height was 13'2" and gross combined weight over 22K. No issues at all. It's a beautiful drive with good roads. There are several campgrounds within the recreational area, so people go there with their campers all the time. Rob

RE: Evacuation Insurance

We have FMCAssist through our FMCA membership: "FMCAssist is emergency medical evacuation and repatriation coverage available to members worldwide as long as you are more than 75 miles from home. If you are a full-time RVer, you are always considered 75 miles from home. FMCAssist services are also available to members when traveling abroad. Some exclusions and limitation amounts pertain to these benefits." Rob

RE: How to Reply to an individual

I recently posted my first post on this forum. It was a question. I have received several replies - with several asking me specific questions. I see where I can reply to the thread in general - but how would I reply to an individual's question without having to do a private reply? I have nothing against replying privately but I think letting people see my responses will add to the discussion. Use the "Quote" function - as I have done here. Rob

RE: RV Mattress

We have a Tuft & Needle in our fifth wheel, but it's a standard queen - not sure they make RV sizes. (We like it so much, we put one in the guest room at the kids for when we stay there, too). A lot of full-timers in the Escapees club have been happy with the RV mattresses from this business: Mattress Insider We're also firm believers in preventing moisture and mold and use this product under the mattress in the RV: Aire-Flow Hypervent Rob

RE: Best place to post

If you're a member of the Escapees forums, they have a For Sale section for Tow'ds, etc. Otherwise, I would go with Facebook Marketplace. We sold a Corolla there a few years ago and it went well. Rob

RE: Wifi and Cell Phone Extenders

If you're talking about signal boosters for campground wi-fi, you would usually be boosting a signal with poor bandwidth. Save your money on that. Cell boosters are a different story and can be quite useful. You can research here: RVMobileInternet.com Rob

RE: Blocked Caller Question

It depends on what function or app you've used to block the caller and who your carrier is. With some, they hear nothing as they are immediately disconnected. In other situations, the call goes straight to your voicemail. Some apps send spam calls to lengthy, rather humorous recorded messages intended to waste the spammers time (usually apps you pay for).
