RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

They are being touted as a Luxury Full Time RV. From the photos, videos and plans and specs on Face Book and their site, I do not consider them either Full Time or Luxury. They appear to be putting large windows and few overhead cabinets. As a full time RVer, I value my cabinet space. Ken

RE: Small flys/ gnats coming out of commode.

What it took to get the drain flies out of the black and gray tank was to pour about quart of Pin-sol in the tank and fill with water. Let it set overnight, drain and flush. The little buggers were gone then. Ken

RE: Break away cable

Frankly, if the hitch comes out of the bed, you've got a lot bigger problem and I seriously doubt the e-brake on the trailer is going to make a hill o' beans difference. Lyle But even the slightest difference can mean the difference between an accident and a disaster. Ken

RE: Washer/Dryer worth it?

Love our Slindide2100XC combo. Fulltime 6.5 years and would not be without it. We find that most of the people that bad mouth the combo units are guilty of not reading and following the instruction manual and/or overloading them. They are not the same as the larger home size units but they do a great job and we don't waste time at the laundry room and filthy machines. If you boondock, don't use your machine, go to a laundry mat. Ken

RE: Double Towing vs Toyhauler

Be careful with double towing. Some states prohibit a double tow. Even if you are licensed and can tow in your home state, you have to abide by the laws of the state you travel through. Next is the hitch rating on the trailer and the load allowed by the manufacturer. The frame on most trailers is very light and cannot take much load. Ken

RE: "Lite" 5th wheels

LITE generally means CHEAP and lower quality on construction. Ken

RE: double towing

This old horse has been beat to death more than once. Your drivers license is recognized and accepted by other states and that is where it stops. You MUST abide by the laws for weight, height, length, speed and towing for the state that you are traveling through. Yes, some of you have towed illegally in states and did not get pulled over or be involved in an accident. That does not make it right, just means you are lucky.

RE: New 5th Wheel Manufacturer

If they truly want to shake up the RV market and build a higher end RV, they need to go to a Young's Welding powder coated frame and Mor/Ryde IS suspension, upgrade insulation, dual pane windows, real leather furniture and better flooring. I an so thankful that we got one of the last HitchHiker Champagnes built...a solid true full time rated trailer. Ken What currently produced 5th wheels use a Young's frame? Sad to say...NONE. But Young's is still in Chanute, KS Ken

RE: RV Crushes Truck

Love my nice well built and heavy TrailerSAver TS3 with the Binkley-Holland hitch head. Very solid and positive locking of the jaws. But is cost a lot more than the Reese. You pays your money and you takes your chances. I tell folks to stay away from the sliding-bar hitches. Ken Ken

RE: RV Crushes Truck

No tug test w/ legs still down! I said lift the front legs about ONE INCH off the ground. This way if it lets go, it only drops an inch and not on the truck. Ken

RE: RV Crushes Truck

Look closely at the point he thinks he is hitched...he is slightly high hitched, no matter what hit little white indicator shows. He should also with that hitch, raise the font jacks about an 1/2 in, put the truck in drive and manually trip the trailer brakes and do a good test tug to insure the hitch is actually latched. After the tug test, finish raising the front jacks. Next is the break away cable is NEVER looped over the hitch latch handle. It is clipped to the bed of the truck. I hope he has learned a lesson.

RE: freezer have ice flakes

To help a gasket reseat, you can take a hair drier to it. Get it warm enough to pluu out a bit and let it cool before closing the door. Often, this will help the gasket realign and seat. Ken

RE: Chucking....is it the trailer or the truck?

Have you weighed the rig and checked you pin weight and your trucks GAWR and GVWR? Either light on the pin or too heavy for the truck can often be a problem.

RE: Dutchmen Atlas or Keystone Cougar

Thor Dutchman or Keystone. Neither one has a good reputation for customer relations or service. If you go with one of these, you need to have an extremely good dealer. I would look at Vanleigh, grand Design or Arctic Fox. Ken

RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

No safety chains, yep that is wrong. Wonder if they have trailer brakes? Ken

RE: Questions about pulling a fifth-wheel with a half ton TV

First, I don't like short bed trucks for pulling a 5er. Next with a 1/2 ton truck, you need to make sure the loaded pin weight of the trailer, plus other cargo in the truck does not exceed the trucks payload capacity. Ken

RE: What happened to all the posts

Another reason for a downturn. The ones that have been on here for a while, simply get tired of the same questions year after year. The new folks think they are the first to ask a particular question and never think to use the search function. I know that I am guilty of scanning over the new post and don't bother to answer a lot of the post, especially if it has already been answered by several people. Another issue is the 3 month new RVers that answer questions as if they are the new self proclaimed expert. Ken

RE: What happened to all the posts

I think a lot of folks are migrating over to group or pages on FaceBook and Instagram. Ken I know I'm migrating to message boards that actually work. The number of error messages and general problems here is ridiculous. For example? Lyle Look at 5th Wheels, all the various manufacturers group... Ken
