RE: Raleigh to Charlottesville, VA advice

Thanks. Taking US29 N out of Greensboro never occurred to me. Think we’ll plan our route back home that way. On the way there we’ll take the 288 bypass around Richmond.

Raleigh to Charlottesville, VA advice

Heading up I-95 to attend graduation ceremonies at University of Virginia towing a 37’ fiver. Need advice around Richmond. Should I stay on I-95 through town to I-64 West? OR take 288 by-pass to I-64? Should make it to Richmond before 3:00 pm.

RE: Building a Fifth Wheel

Would be more interesting to know whey they can't come up with common wire harnesses and conduit/channels to run them through, instead of the spaghetti-thrown-against-the-wall mess most have. :-/ Seriously, 12v harness and 110v harness for rigs 20-25', 25-30', 30-35' and > 35'. Could easily be pre-made by a vendor; main conduit/channel down the centerline with wiring branching off. I suggested this while visiting the Sabre factory back in 2011. The plant manager told me wiring consumed the greatest man hours during assembly. I even offered to help design one as I’ve built harnesses in a former life. Obviously not interested in 21st Century production processes.

RE: Negative/Ground wire

My battery is grounded to the frame with a self tapping bolt. I removed it, cleaned the contact surfaces with a wire brush, installed the screw then painted it to maintain a corrosion free connection. Has worked fine since 2013.

RE: Selecting new TT Tires

Maxxis makes a Load Range E in that size. I’m on my 2nd set. They’re a proven quality tire. Make sure they’re balanced. Click here:Maxxis M8008 ST tires

RE: Sloppy socket fit on lug nuts

Why not have the tires balanced and install new quality lug nuts at that time?

RE: Leveling help

I also use 2x8 boards that are 4’ long. I installed handles on the edges to make it easy to move. I’ve used them on both my fivers since 2007. I place a 9” long level door way to check level. The jacks on the rear are not leveling jacks just for stabilizing. I was too cheap to order them on my Columbus. Rarely have I had to use both 2x8’s on top of each other.

RE: Apex 251RBK Towing

We towed a Jayco TT with our 2007 Tacoma Pre Runner with the long wheelbase. We made it one season before switching to our current TV. You will definitely know it’s back there. Make sure you have a good hitch setup and don’t plan on getting up to speed very quickly as the V-6 will be working hard and revving high. The engine can handle the revving, though you might be a bit nervous. I strongly recommend towing the rig once loaded and see how much you weigh.

RE: Front Bike Rack

I installed a Curt hitch on the front of our 2500 and use this carrier by Thule: Thule 2 bike carrier I shimmed the hitch to cause it to tilt back a bit allowing greater road clearance when the carrier is installed.

RE: Anyone use insect (tick) yard spray before they set up camp?

We keep a few cans of Raid yard gaurd spray and before setting up camp, I will spray the area. Not only ticks & fleas, but mosquitoes and gnats are taken care of.

RE: Front Ends - Especially Dodge

As already mentioned get a second opinion before replacing anything. If you do have to replace items like ball joints, tie rod ends, control arm bushings, etc, Moog suspension parts have a limited lifetime warranty. They’re a little more pricy than generic parts, but you get what you pay for.

RE: Falls Lake State Park, NC

Many NC State Parks lock the gates at night. There are campground hosts that have keys and in case of emergency will open up the gates. You can also call park rangers that often cruise the grounds. We’ve never had a security problem at any of the state park campgrounds.

RE: Wheel Bearing Question

As long as the ambient temps have been below 200-250 degrees... I don’t think I’d want to RV when it’s that hot outside, even in Florida.

I installed KYB MonoMax on my RAM 2500. They work well with my airbags and were less expensive than Billsteins. KYB MonoMax shocks
