RE: 2500 Chevy Duramax vs 2500 Ram Cummins on the Ike Gauntlet

Almost all of the comments here come down to the same old Chevy vs Ram debate. There are millions of these trucks out there towing trailers with no problems and nearly identical results so it still comes down to a matter of brand preference. That being said I see no reason to put a 10 speed trans behind the Cummins engine because it works just fine the way it is.

RE: Hartland TIres

Discount tire doesn't list a G rater GY tire in the size I use but the OP didn't say what size he needs. In my size 238/80/16 E rated tires there is only $18 difference in price between the Hartland and the Good Year. That's a no brainer for me GY every time.

RE: A Quick Question

I'm with those that open only one valve because I want to know when the first tank is empty. If it runs out during the night it's no big deal.

RE: 30 to 50 amp adapter

Do you mean one of these? Adapter That's exactly what I'm looking for thank you.

30 to 50 amp adapter

I've been looking for an adapter to plug my 5th wheel which has a 50 amp power cord into my generator that has a 30 amp twist-lock outlet and can't seem to find one. So the adapter needs to have a male end for the 30A twist-lock outlet on one end and a female end on the 50A side. Any ideas?

RE: Removing one side tires

I’ve got a joke…. How many RV.netters does it take to change a tire? https://i.imgur.com/FOqIJjGm.jpg

RE: Hope this is OK for this forum - DEF question

I've never had any leaking problems when adding DEF and I usually use the cheapo 2.5 gal wallyworld stuff. The cheap spout works just fine.

RE: Interesting new EV travel trailer from Airstream.

I see it as more gimmicky than anything. They are already overpriced in my opinion and this will just boost the price up more. Just more junk to break. ^^This^^ Airstreams are very overpriced for the cramped space they have inside. Would the battery bank power the furnace, water heater and stove as long as 2 30lb propane tanks? I seriously doubt it. We had a vintage 1963 Airstream Globetrotter and it was very cramped inside. We recently looked at a $90,000+ Airstream at an RV show and they are still just as cramped inside, though more luxuriously cramped.

RE: Actual federal weight law rules, some questions and answers

Perhaps someone will post the citation they received after being pulled over, inspected and weighed in their recreational vehicle, be it travel trailer or 5th wheel. I'm going to guess it doesn't happen.

RE: Ram 6.7 fuel filters

What ever you do, don't use a Fram oil filter. They are known to kill these engines and Ram even has a TSB to identify the damage they cause. https://i.imgur.com/mUDEHAlm.jpg

RE: Fridge light

Your fridge came without a light? Ha ha, it has a light but for some reason there is no power to the light fixture and there is no power to the switches that send power to the light fixture when the doors are opened. The fridge works just fine otherwise whether on propane or shore power.

Fridge light

Alright guys, I'm looking for a battery powered fridge light to put in our RV fridge. Have any of you found one that works pretty good? I saw a Sensor Brite Polar Brite LED light on Amazon but it has some pretty poor reviews as far as battery life. It's supposed to last up to 20,000 hours on one set of batteries but apparently that is not the case. Any suggestions?

RE: New Rig!

Congratulations! Agreed that you will love the rear living room layout with the chairs and rear window; we love ours too! You will love how your truck tows it too! He's exactly right about the extra room in LR portion. As our kids were getting bigger and 1 left the nest, the other wasn't far behind. We knew that we wanted a rear LR (and even now w/ DD/SIL/and g-son come we think" Would a TH be better"?), but we come back to "No" as this is for "Us" and guests will have to make do. So when looking, DW sat in theatre seats and saw they had everything, plus the FP, she yelled out "ThIs Is It!". Told her not to look at the bling. Course at that time she didn't know about the FP in BR. Anyways, we've been very happy w/ our Big Country and rear LR and slide in slide BR. ONLY downside, well ok 2, is 1 main slide blocks access to bathroom when in and 2nd is that we had to get a new truck (DRW) due to weight. Not that in itself is a bad thing, but I was really liking the SRW we just got couple years before thinking that would be our last truck. So enjoy it man!! How funny that she was so excited about the fireplace. When we were looking and comparing Bighorns to Montana's, we went with the Bighorm due to it have many more ammenities than the Montana, including the fireplace. I was not thrilled about it and figured it was useless and more a bling thing. Well, I sure did change my mind on our first trip to the Yellowstone area. We used that fireplace while enjoying our recliners and lo and behold - it warmed up our little area! How nice to use that heat rather than running the propane onboard heater. I agree, I thought those so called "fireplaces" were a waste of space but we are amazed at just how much heat they will produce in the liviing-room area of our 5er where the recliners are.

RE: Idaho Campgrounds

Just be aware that Idaho State Parks charges non-residents double for campsites, at a numner of their campgrounds. We went to Farragut State Park and had to pay twice the price for a W/E campsite. We could have stayed at a waterfront full hookups site on Lake Coeur d'Alene, for less money. Interesting, thanks for bringing this up.

RE: 12v to 120v inverter

Along with the "coffee outlet" check the televisions, often they are on an inverter circuit. Thanks, I didn't think to check the tv.

RE: 12v to 120v inverter

I can only find 1 outlet that shows 120 volts. It's right next to the stove like for a coffee maker or such.That sounds about right, although having your entire coach on inverter is much handier. How "new to us" is this coach? It's a used 2021 we bought last Oct. We figure someone bought it during this covid thing and lived in it for a couple of months, it is like brand new.

12v to 120v inverter

So I discovered that our new to us 5th wheel has an inverter. It also has a factory installed 170 watt solar panel. I'm sure the tech told me about it but we went over so much that I must have forgotten. Anyway when I turn the switch to battery power I can only find 1 outlet that shows 120 volts. It's right next to the stove like for a coffee maker or such. Does it sound right that there would only be 1 outlet with 120?

RE: Is all DEF the same?

To my surprise, another clerk said not to buy the FRAM brand that it can cause issues? I know nothing about DEF. But I love the way FRAM always gets kicked about like everything they make is bad. They used to produce quality products once upon a time. Now they rely on their name and make cheap stuff. They bought a lot of Cummins engines in the 90's with their oil filters coming apart and clogging the cooling nozzles. ^^^This is absolute BS^^^ Nothing but repeating what was heard of on the web with ZERO documentation.

RE: 5th wheel hitch security

5th wheel rail lock Thanks, that will work just fine. I don't mind spending $50 to keep my $2000+ hitch safe. :) What hitch are you running that's 2k and rides on rails? It's PullRite Superglide 20k. Parts were just over $2300 but Campingworld wanted over $1600 labor for installation so I did it myself with help from my son. I must say it was not an easy job.
