RV roof UV coating. Worth it?

An accident has our 5er in the shop. They are trying to sell me roof UV coating while it's there. My research tells me the stuff is cheap, way cheaper than they are wanting and doable by me. Feedback would be appreciated. TIA

RE: wheel balancers

Have any of us used beads and these at different times and if so is there any difference?

RE: Long Road trip

We've tented, had 5 TTs, and are now on our second 5er. What keeps us from the diesel MH we would want is that a lot of the possible issues require a shop. There is very little on a TT/5er I can't fix. Each one has their benefits and issues. A trunk camper could be a good alternative as well in certain cases.

RE: Portable Generator

I think DB meant that he posted in the wrong place, not the OP. I always just use a . when I mess up.

RE: Black Tanks Won’t Flush

Google isn't always correct due to the info it receives. Our FR 5er lists one grey at 60 gallons. It really is 2 30 gallon tanks with one pull handle behind a round cosmetic port 4 feet from the wet bay and the other in the wet bay beside the black tank pull. One grey is bath, the other is kitchen. Looking at the 5er specs you might want to find a scale so that you know what you are dealing with truck spec wise.

RE: Benson, AZ area RV parks?

Kartchner Caverns State Park. Very new and if I remember right they are all or mostly pull thru with very wide spacing. Caverns on site also. Go see the Forever Home donkey rescue, Tombstone, and the gold mine in Bisbee. Nice tour of the mine and it's a cute little town. Border patrol everywhere so don't get spooked. It gets blazing hot by April/May so plan accordingly.

RE: Nascar Follies

Last years field was 18 cars, so 6 of the 16 Chase drivers were already in by some other method. I wouldn't care if they were running Neons, I'd still watch.

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

My experience with diesels in general from my dealership background is that the engines themselves are fine. That oil bath v belt is a bit wonky admittedly but 90 percent of the problems are from the emissions systems. The early FCA 3.0s did have some mechanical issues but they worked them out. If someone is in that market I would recommend the 5.0 Cummins Nissan.

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

I heard that they were spectacular. If they are so spectacular, do they have a cloaking device? I've asked others around the area and no one has seen one yet. Fish, it's a play on words. Read the OP carefully. Pretty sure spell check got him and he meant spectators.

RE: New mall crawler!

It should fit in the garage if you remove the yellow ball cap off the roof. Congratulations. I didn't know w t f you were talking about until I went back and looked at the pic. That's funny! It fits in the shop, but shop = mine. Truck = wifes. I need the space...lol. Although I don't think it's ever going under a 7' door even if I ditch the headache rack and drop to 35s. https://i.imgur.com/QGDiU1rl.jpg It's the new Napa delivery vehicle model.

Check this if you've bought a used RV recently

I was putting the dog out yesterday and heard the infamous beep from the 5er. Ah, the old dead battery in the dinner is ready alarm. I go find and test a 9V battery and pull down the alarm. There wasn't even a battery in the thing. The beep was the LP/propane alarm near the floor. My fault for not testing the alarm in January when we bought it but it never crossed my mind. Go check yours today.

RE: will a flat tire cause my fifth wheel to lean

Looking at the join date this is just another in a long string of such things. The best PDI in the world is worthless in the face of the RVing buying onslaught.

RE: are my truck leaf springs shot? f350 2001 srw 4x4

Along with the pin weight some info on the truck would be helpful.

RE: Thor or Forest River - Warranty and reputation

RE: This is why you never buy a house on land you don't own

The crime rate in MB may be in play to some degree. Go on Realtor.com, Zillow, or one of the others. Oceanfront condos less than $100K in the city limits. Lots of them.

RE: settle an arguement

To the OP. Please forward a resume in case this turns out bad. No pic needed. ;)

This is why you never buy a house on land you don't own

read here this is the latest article, the other one was a year old. This would apply to RV sites as well and fairly common in Florida.

RE: Opinion on a campground?

To the OP you aren't trashing the campground? The heck you aren't! What's the big deal about naming them?
