RE: Likely to regret

I'll have to agree with everyone above. I've always coveted a Freightliner SportChassis (quite a bit smaller than your truck), but even it would be overkill for our 15K fiver. The F350 dually does the job just fine. You also don't say what state you live in and getting the truck to where you can register it as an RV (if your state allows it) is extra trouble. Rob

RE: How do I know what kind of heating is in the caravan?

Truma makes tankless water heaters. The main heating systems in RVs are LP/Propane furnaces. The heat source is the LP and the fan and thermostat operate on 12VDC from the battery. Rob

RE: Good potable water hose?

@Second, I choked on the price of that winter hose. Still getting used to this. Thanks to all. I agree - pretty steep. But the cheaper (think Camco and others) typically don't last more than a couple of winters and often have a terrible plastic taste. If you are full-time, as we are, and don't run from winter and very cold temps, it's more than worth it. Rob

RE: Good potable water hose?

I use a Camco EvoFlex 35 ft. during warm weather (filter is inside the heated service bay) and this during the winter: NoFreezeWaterHose Both work well. Rob

RE: Route 89A in utah

I highly recommend purchasing and downloading a digital copy of The Mountain Directory: The Mountain Directory It will tell you everything you need to know - not just about that route, but any others you may travel in the future. Rob

RE: Winterizing tankless water heater

There have been reports on other forums that instructions in the Furrion manual are in error and have lead to cracked heat exchangers. You might search YouTube and find someone (a good RV tech) who has uploaded a video on how to winterize one of these water heaters properly. I don't understand why manufacturers (not just Forest River) thought the Furrion on-demand WH was a good idea in an RV... Rob

RE: Western slopes of Colorado

I never travel in places like Colorado or northern New Mexico without checking my route(s) in The Mountain Directory (I use the downloadable version on a Windows laptop). It tells you almost everything you need to know about routes you are considering. The Mountain Directory The cost is reasonable - I highly recommend it. Rob

RE: Lippert leveling system touch pad problem

Sounds like the switch is kaput. I have found Lipper/LCI customer service to be very helpful. Give them a call at 432-547-7378 tomorrow. Rob

RE: Pet Insurance

Our son and daughter-in-law are both veterinarians (he's board certified in internal medicine, she in oncology). They even carry pet insurance. I just asked him what they have and here's his reply: "We currently have Embrace and like them. Also had good experiences with Trupanion." Rob

Good Sam membership and Pilot/Flying J RV fuel card

Does anyone know if letting my GS membership lapse would affect my GS Pilot/Flying J fuel card (credit card paid from checking) account status? Thanks, Rob

We use something like this and it keeps the hanging files in place very well during travel: Hanging file box If you have a lot of files, you may need several. Rob

RE: Full-time RVing proof of residence?

The Escapees RV Club offers domicile and mail services. Their main hub is in Texas, but you can get addresses in Florida and South Dakota, as well (the three most common states used by full-time RVers). Search for "Escapees RV Club domicile" and read their educational materials on the subject. There's more to it than a physical address if you want to avoid legal trouble down the road. Rob

RE: Observation--newer trucks tow fivers a bit nose high

Yep - all the time. We had MORryde add several inches to the height of our previous fiver so it would sit level with adequate rail clearance... and that was with a 2013 model truck. They just keep making them taller. Rob

RE: towing hitch for new trailer

Those weights are all empty weights - pretty useless numbers and should not be used for determining an appropriate tow vehicle or hitch. The GVWR of that trailer (fully loaded) is 6,500 lbs. which will yield a tongue weight around 780 lbs. Rob
