RE: Oops, Dodge just threw you under the bus...

^ We get it, you like your Ridgeline. They are cute. Nice mid size pickup. Bit lighter duty than say a Colorado but very usable for commuting, light towing/hauling. Payload discussions here always go sideways thanks to the the folks who don't understand and those that refuse to and that's exactly where this is at. Thought your first post was more in jest, but appears that your over justification for the Ridgeline has persisted. This is akin to the 1/2T payload/towing vs 3/4 ton payload/towing. Believe whatever makes you sleep well at night, but the Ridgeline is nowhere near as capable overall as a well equipped 1/2 ton and a 1/2 ton is not as capable as a 3/4 ton regardless of some "overlap" in ratings.EXACTLY! Well spoken.

RE: Lock for generator

I wish they had that lockdown plate for my Champ 3400! I've been patiently waiting. I purchased a length of hardened chain that's over 1/2" thick and a big fat hardened lock to secure it. They say that bolt cutters can't cut the chain, but I'm sure with some time, a grinder will. It's a work out just lifting the chain. :)

RE: Digital to Analog Converter: CLAIMED

I still use one in my garage. I'm too cheap to mount a newer TV out there. Works great!

RE: Is a cover necessary ?

I paid under $10k for my trailer brand new in 2004. I maintained it and enjoyed it for years, but I never covered it. I can share photos of it under several feet of snow, and relate tales of the freeze/thaw cycles it's been through, etc. It's never leaked or let me down in that regard. I've been planning on replacing it for a few years now, but just haven't gotten around to it. It still suits my needs nicely. However, the rubber roof was shedding the protective white coating, and showing its age. I re-coated it a couple years ago, and am now in the practice of covering it in the winter. As far as I am concerned, even if I purchase a new cover every year, it's a good, even frugal, decision.

RE: Is a cover necessary ?

As I indicated before, I am pro-cover but I wouldn't spend $400+ on a cover for a $3500 trailer.Why not?

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

I think I'm going to take the 6.4 badge off my Ram so I don't look like a fool while towing with it. Thanks for the heads up.:B

RE: RV Cover

Here's mine. The other side is right up against a fence, so I don't have room for a permanent enclosure unfortunately. It is shrink wrapped with a peaked structure added for run off. I've also added ventilation so I can occupy it as necessary. https://i.imgur.com/0Ic0DTel.jpg

RE: Keep using Eternabond until entire roof is covered?

Clean the roof and coat it with something like Heng's Rubber Roof Coating. I restored the roof on our 1996 Southwind. After applying Eternabond to the seams and roof edges, it took 2 1/2 gallons of Heng's to coat 30' of roof with two light coats. It's easy to apply and does not need a primer. Ditto on the Hengs. Probably not a permanent fix but good for several years anyway. I used it on our old fiver, it went on easily after I cleaned the roof. I think I used 2 gallons on a 35 ft fiver and that was for two coats. You get a nice smooth white finish no brush or roller marks.X3

RE: EcoDiesel vs Hemi up IKE

Looks like the GM product is the only one with an exhaust brake. However, the video demonstrated that the Eco-diesel handled the downhill portion pretty well.

RE: Quiet generators

I think even the Honda is a Chinese engine now. Some Buicks are Chinese now too. Generator tech is pretty mature.

RE: Sealing underside edge of counter top

The underside of my counters is mdf, and has been exposed for the last 15 years (with kids for the first 8). Zero issues. Now, I could understand if water got past the sink edge on a continuous basis... Maybe the quality of the mdf has changed? I dunno.

RE: Roku in motorhome

Mine works fine when my RV is connected to my home wifi, but won't show local channels when connected to wifi just 3 blocks away.

RE: New to me: Flex mend

The first time I had to cut the darco, an RV dealer repair shop manager gave me a section of that. Nice stuff, but I think I would try Gorilla Tape first now. I've also successfully used Eternabond in places that I knew I would never have to return to. Yeah it's white, but who's gonna notice.

RE: Organized Obie Installs

I've used small screws all over the place in my trailer. In the 15 years I've had it, one or two screw holes are now showing because the product that lived there is history. There are fillers available that are very close to the same color as most trailer interiors. You couldn't even see the screw holes in mine unless you knew where to look. I'm a recent convert to the cargo net form of storage too. LOVE IT!

RE: New Winnebago trailer line coming out?

The exterior bedroom door would be real handy if you're in a location where you can't extend the slide but need access to the bedroom. As for the interior bedroom door, that's a major feature for me. We don't keep the same hours and I would like to be able to make a little noise in the morning without waking her, likewise at night when I'm snoozed and she's not.

RE: Havent camped in 2 years

As people mention weight distributing hitches, it occurs to me that the Equal-I-zer brand doesn't have to be removed. The bars can be pushed up close to the rear bumper of the tow vehicle to be out of the way, and you can drive all over with them still attached. I've done it quite a bit. I swapped out the small cotter pins that hold them on for small locks typically used on luggage. That way they don't grow legs unless somebody is dedicated to the cause. Good luck with what ever you choose. Growin' old ain't for wimps!

New Winnebago trailer line coming out?

I've been a bit of a Grand Design fan since they first came out, and thought some of their floor plans were pretty ground breaking. Apparently so did much of the industry, as they have been copied by many. I'm also a fan of slightly smaller trailers that still offer a nice travelling experience. One of those was the Imagine 2150, which was one of their first, and I though one of their best. Well it has disappeared from their website for the new model year. At some point recently, I read a comment from somebody around here, disliking the Imagine line, but also really liking the Winnebago products. As it happens, Winnebago owns Grand Design. I perused their website and noticed they have a new line of trailers named Voyage. Low and behold their first product, a 2427RB, is that same floor plan, but spruced up and a bit larger. It also has a significantly higher payload rating. I think it looks pretty nice, and now have a new line to window shop. Almost the perfect couples rig, for my way of thinking.

RE: Storage Compartment Theft

I like that idea. And maybe a few well placed mouse traps.

RE: 5th wheel cover selection help

I had mine shrink wrapped for about $300. I was careful when removing and think I could use it again.
