RE: Bedroom door

Our bed slides in and blocks the door from opening very wide in the event it should pop open. Our bathroom door is a pocket door and has a nice latch to keep it closed. The shower door also has a firm latch, but for extra protection we wedge a pool fun noodle in the track. Our bedroom closet doors have 2 very strong latches at the bottom which really keep them from sliding open. So far no issues.

RE: Tire life

I got 9 years out of my XPS Ribs....until 1 blew out sitting in my driveway....no damage. I kept them covered, inflated a few PSI higher over the winter months, and applied 303 protectant quite often.

RE: Changed the rear springs

The Firestone airbags that I had on my old GMC 2500 worked great leveling my Cedar Creek Silverback....and I was way over the truck's GVWR....I did add wider wheels and tires to support the weight. The airbag alone configuration worked well for 9 years. The airbags were installed when I bought the 5ver, which also came with a compressor. It was installed in the truck's engine compartment and with a switch I was able to add/subtract air on the fly. I only had the wider wheels the last 3 years before I bought my current dually.

RE: Just bought a new 5th wheel

Sounds like you made the right decision for you....and that's what counts. Good luck & safe travels.

RE: Camper Cover

The ADCO cover we are using on our 38' 5Ver fits very well, and has held up great.....considering it is now 13 years old....now, it was used first year on our 2009, then we stored it away....until we put it on the first year with our 2019.....it was always big on our 34-ft 5ver (which is why we stored it), but fits very nicely on current trailer - doesn't flap to much in the wind. It also has alot of straps to keep it snug and zippers so that we can still get inside or open storage doors. We protect the gutter spouts and King antenna to avoid tears. IMO, the key is to have a good fit. I hope this helps. Mike

RE: Six-point leveling system -- reduce rocking

I used 6 x 6s about a foot long. I also added nice sturdy handles that make it very easy to carry them to and from my truck bed. I use these in order to reduce the chance of getting 6 pt leveling stoke error.

RE: General 5th Wheel Brand Question

I would consider Montana and Cedar Creek as high MID-level units.

RE: Rving coming to an end

Best wishes for your wife Ken. Don't ever give up, the power of prayers works. Sure hope you get to continue RVing, even if this just delays your adventures. Hang in there.

RE: Real-life experience blocks to aid 6-point leveling system

I have always used 6x6 blocks under the leveling pads to avoid getting a stroke error. I went to Lowes and bought nice large handles, which makes carrying and grabbing the blocks much easier. They go in the bed of my truck for easy access and are the first thing we do when setting up. Only on a few occasions did one side of the wheels lift off the ground.

RE: Winter cover for 5th wheel

I also use an ADCO cover because we park under some trees and they are dirty. WE cover in mid to late Nov and uncover late March early April....all depends on our schedule. Ours is about 13 yrs old, but has only been used 3 times. We used it in 2018 & 2019 on our current signature RV. WE used it once on our 2009. It is still in good shape. When not in use, we store it in a gigantic wheeled/covered garbage can.

RE: Sunday in Kansas City unusual site

I thought it was an interesting response....initially thought it was kind of mocking the OP...but I see the humor behind it also.

RE: Two features a must in a fifth. Who builds them

The only stops we make are for bathroom breaks....we carry snacks and sandwiches in the truck to eat on the fly...so no need to open a slide until we reach our destination. When at home its no big deal opening the slides....and we really only need to open one of them if we have to. To each his own.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

I love my 18K Patriot which works very well with our signature 5ver. Very easy to adjust the height if needed.

RE: Tow vehicle in the shop

To make 2 long stories short, let me just say never again will we consider GS ERS.....we have Coach Net. In both cases, the GS operator was not much help and in the 2nd time she was totally incompetent. The second time we needed them we had found a local repair tech that was working on our trailer's issue for 2 hours before we got a call back from GS.

RE: advice on 5th wheel hitch option

I had a 2008 GMC2500 D/A with the 6.5' bed. We towed a Cedar Creek Silverback for 10 years using a Husky manual slider. I NEVER had to use the slider and my trailer was very close to 90 deg. I will add, that the corners were "cut" out which provided more turning room, but I was never worried. It was comforting to know that if I needed it, I had it. Good Luck.

RE: Pin Box with Air

Rob - I have a trailair and the B&W Patriot....and as been said, I put some weight on the plate and let her slide up and in....she locks with no problems. I also leave the airbag inflated, but usually add some air before I head out - especially if she sits for a few weeks.

RE: Tires

I totally agree with Cummins2014.....how heavy your trailer weighs makes all the difference in tire choice. I love my Westlake G rated tires....when time to replace it will either be them again, or Sailun 637s.

RE: Your Rig

That's two heck of upgrades! I bet you are amazed by the improvements time made. Enjoy & have fun! Mike

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

Our Tractor Supply sells propane by the gallon.....I think I paid $2.29 or $2.59/gal.....I can't remember...I topped both 30lb tanks off...one took 3.1Gal and the other 2.3Gal...getting ready for colder weather. When full they both weighed 54 lbs.
