RE: Forest River RV Cedar Creek Silverback 29RW - feeback

2350 is your dry pin weight. Loaded you might be up to or close to 3000 I wouldn't tow a 14K 5er with a 3/4 ton. I'd stick to finding a 1 ton personally. Mike

RE: Pet Peeves long road trip

Don't forget the ones that slow down even more when you slow down. I don't know how many times I have eased off to allow a car to merge in front of me, only to have them slow down and match my slower speed. My general rule of thumb is if the car is even with my tow vehicle, I back off in an attempt to let said vehicle merge ahead of me. Some get it, many do not. Mike

Back to the OP's question, this thread yet again proves there is no consensus. Mike

RE: New Ram is awsome!

My 2017 Ram CTD gets about 11-11.5MPG towing my 5er. Gets over 20 not towing (freeway). Im sure the big sail has alot to do with it. I would be interested in what you achieve loaded up. Mike
Walaby 07/10/20 12:56pm Tow Vehicles

Hmmm... you joined 4 years ago. I suspect you know already there is far from any consensus. Cargo capacity is generally speaking the least forgiving number and the one that is generally reached or exceeded first. Length - there are some recommended formula's out there that take into consideration a tow vehicle's wheelspan, but that's even subjective. I have a 40 ft 5th wheel I pull with a one ton SRW. Im within all my weight capacities and have no issues towing it. Mike

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

I've gone just over 400 miles a couple of times and really don't like to do that, unless I have to. My max is more in the 350 range. After that, I really start getting irritable and tired. It's not like driving a car. You are much more focused, and while driving 60-65 is what most of us do, everyone around you are doing 75-80... so you are constantly watching, looking, reacting etc... It can be a grind... Mike

RE: Lacrosse quality?

Lacrosse quality is pretty good. As good as most, not necessarily better than any others. I had a 2016 Lacrosse 324RST. I did have a few issues with it, but mostly with standard components. A/C was replaced under warranty. Control board on the Dometic fridge went out.. also warranty. I did experience the dreaded cap fade, and that was out of the regular warranty period. Primetime paid to have my cap painted. The wall for the bathroom was warped and also rebuilt under warranty. Friend of mine is on his third PrimeTime RV and he's been very happy with all three. Mike

RE: Slide Topper Awnings Will Not Fit

I personally like the slide toppers. Never ever had any issue with them with water or debris under them. Only issue is on some of the longer ones, they will pool some water on top. Bringing slide in gets rid of the water. This is one of those items that you either see a benefit and like them, or you don't. Mike

RE: Possible CCC Upgrade

I don't think anything you do will change the stickers. So, if the mods you propose doing make it more capable in your mind, then I say just do it. Mike

RE: Buy Register A Car While Traveling?

Between yesterday when you posted and today, you could have been there, taken care of it, and returned and be drinking a beer right now. Mike

RE: Equal weights??

Tell him yes, and watch him try to figure out how to make that work. Mike

RE: Harbor Freight Predator 3500W question

I think OP has already written this thread (and the Predator) off because it doesn't satisfy 1/100%th of a requirement (12v). Silly to buy a generator, or discount a generator for a trivial issue that they all have. Mike

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

Im going camping in North Georgia mountains in two weeks. Mike

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

I tell you what.. I'll go camping where I can easily meet or exceed all social distancing norms and y'all just go ahead and stay home. That way we will both be happy. Mike

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

Makes perfect sense to me, and really reflects the feelings that many of us have. The virus is real... no doubt. The hoax is the changing and moving of the goal posts, inflating the number of deaths and the ridiculous implementation of nonsensical restrictions. Just a few examples. You can jog on a beach, but the trails used for jogging are closed ... You can go to Walmart with no restriction on number of personnel, but get thrown in jail if you go out in a boat with more than 4 people, even if they are all your family members (thank you Illinois Gov). Hard to believe people who make up this nonsense actually get a paycheck. Mike

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

Not to mention the 5000 cases in NY where the GOV mandated that assisted living homes must take COVID patients, and as a result, 5000 people died. Mike

RE: Anyone traveling yet

This discussion/argument has gone on in an untold number of threads, and neither side is going to convince the other to change. There's one side that is unwilling to venture outside of home unless absolutely necessary and don't want to open up anything until the virus is eradicated and there is a vaccine. Regardless of what we learn along the way that might enlighten people and should cause some to rethink. Then there's the group that looks at things a little more objectively, and don't apply a one size fits all solution. It's not that folks on this side don't care, or don't have any concerns, it's just that you can't freeze everything in time and hide inside until this thing goes away. It's pretty telling when over half of the deaths occur in the highest population areas, despite the direction to stay at home. 5000 deaths alone based on a decision to direct assisted living homes that they must, by law, admit COVID patients. Talk about criminal! For those of you who feel that the only way people on the other side will believe is if something happens to someone close to them, well, I view that as lashing out because we don't agree with you. It has nothing to do with whether or not we believe this virus is real, but again, there's not a one size fits all approach. No one yet has made a single convincing argument about why it's dangerous or selfish to go camping in a state park that is open, and more than ample space to exceed all social distancing requirements. The argument about contact along the way is a ridiculous one, especially when you can make it to your destination on one tank of fuel. And I am quite sure the same people who don't want to go anywhere do fuel up locally (although clearly not as much. In the end, each side is right in their mind, and each one is wrong in the others mind. Mike

TSD Fuel Program Update

Got an email this morning from TSD Logistics Good evening TSD Fuel card holders. We have some great news. TA/Petro has come back to us with some great rates. They will likely be the lowest price out of all of our vendors. We have also added Kwik Trip and Kwik Star to our discount program with 10 cents off per gallon. We are reaching out to others now to see if we can increase to some of the smaller chains. Our current discount network is TA, Petro, Loves, Road Ranger, SAAP Brothers, Ambest, Kwik Trip and Kwik Star. Just thought I'd share Mike

RE: Another sad sign of the times.

Think we need a bail-out plan to take care of the bugs. After all, bugs have feelings too. Mike

RE: Anyone traveling yet

If one leaves the city, and heads out camping, while maintaining social distancing requirements, are you helping your fellow city citizens? Seems to me answer is yes Mike
