RE: Questions on using a Dutch Oven

+1 on the charcoal chimney and lid lifter. I got a pair of heavy duty gloves too that helps. I haven’t done a lot besides cobblers in mine recently but when I was a kid we did a lot of baking in them on camping trips...pizza, biscuits, cinnamon rolls...

RE: riding nose high

I had an issue with tire clearance on my 5er and it also rode nose high...Forest River’s solution to address the clearance was to install a Lippert Correct Track which added about 2” lift. Resolved the clearance issue and rides a lot more level now. And I can adjust the tow in alignment a lot better too.

RE: Water Pump

Anytime I've removed a pump I just have a couple of old towels handy to soak up any residual water. I may actually be able to do this without removing (fingers/toes crossed) the pump itself. So just residual water? Nothing pouring out in torrents? Should be no torrents if you’re level (fresh tank not uphill) and open a couple faucets to relieve any pressure in the lines. If you’re hooked up to water I’d also turn it off and release the pressure just in case...depends on how things are plumbed, but better to release all pressure. Agree with comment above to have a couple towels ready. Replaced our pump a while back and just a little residual spill.

RE: Does Your Bed Cover, Cover Your 5'ver Hitch

While searching for info on Bakflip F1 on a 6 1/2 foot bed I saw your post and I'm wondering about how much room you have between the folded cover and the 5th wheel hitch if you don't fold it up against the window? Wanting to order one but not sure the folded cover will interfere with the hitch. Not sure the dimensions are same, but I have the Bakflip MX4 on my 2011 Ram with B&W Companion hitch. I haven’t measured, but I have a couple inches clearance between cover and hitch with the cover folded but not against the cab. After I installed it I jack-knifed the trailer with the hitch in towing position and still had plenty of clearance. Amazon link

RE: Spare Tire Rack Failure - Third trip out with new RV.

Thanks for sharing. I have same setup on my Cherokee 235b...one more thing to keep an eye on. I too don't really like the design due to clearance of the tire when the cargo shelf is down, but will be watching the bracket now too.

RE: Water Heater

On when plugged in to electric...never even turn on the propane switch unless quick recovery needed between showers. Our electric on/off switch is on the heater itself, so it’s easy to set and forget. I did learn (almost the hard way) that I need to remember to turn it off before draining the water heater if I’m plugged in (usually at home after a trip prepping for storage)

RE: How to Set up a two person TENT.

wow like watching grass grow. I can put up my Instant Up by Coleman in 3 minutes. Its a tent I can walk around in! Car camping only, it's a beast that weighs about 15 lbs but an awesome tent! BTW did your troop have the Eureka Timberline tents? They were great tents but were tricky to set up the first time. Good old Timberline...great tents, but yeah there were a couple of tricks to setting them up efficiently.

RE: Huge damage award - posted without comment

Anyone else picturing Clark Griswold in Christmas Vacation? Sad though...stupid actions with a sad outcome.

RE: Drinking Campground Water...

I'd like to know how the forum feels about general campground water. Do you buy gallons of water for coffee, or use what comes out of the faucet? It doesn't matter how the forum members feel about CG water. Your wife wants bottled water. Buy her the water. You're not going to win this one. ;) FWIW. I can drink CG water. My DW wants bottled water. So I carry a couple cases of water. I do recycle my plastic and we quit using plastic straws. I agree with this. My wife prefers bottles so we usually take a couple 1.5 gallon jugs to refill Nalgene or Hydroflask type bottles. We use campground water or water from our tank for coffee and cooking.

RE: Leveling and turning on your refrigerator?

We have a bullseye level inside our fridge. I glance at it to make sure things are close to level, but have never really worried about it. Turn it on when I want it to cool (usually overnight to pre-cool it before loading it for a trip), and drive with it on. I too prefer iced drinks out of a cooler and especially with the kids to cut down on the traffic in and out of the trailer.
