RE: 2020 Freightliner vs 3500 GMC Dually at the Ike

Howdy! When I purchased my 3500 Chevorlet Custom Hauler the uplifted stated he did not get truck and chassis because they are detuned. I went from a 2003 4400 International Custom Hauler to 2018 Chevorlet Duramax/Allison towing a 18,000 lb 44’ Toy Hauler 5er. This new Chevrolet I believes out towed the MDT. I was impressed when I recently towed to in the Smokey Mountains. It did great going up which I m not as concerned with as going down which I felt more comfortable in this truck on the downgrades than in the 4400 international. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: 2010 5th Wheel with a broken frame at Pin Box

Howdy! I can recommend someone to fix it but they are in Goshen, Indiana, Affinity RV Group. I’m there now have delamination on a sidewall and a slideout repaired. They are well up to the task as I’ve watch the work they are doing while here. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: 5th wheel hitches

Howdy! Have you considered using a Reece Goose Box? When I purchase our new 3500 DRW Chevorlet recently I decided now to go back to using a 5er hitch. I purchased a Reece Goose Box 20,000 lb pin box and use the goose neck ball on the truck. I really like not having to deal with the 5er hitch and now having a clean truck bed if needed. The goose neck ball is easily removed compared to the 5er hitch. We fulltime and the Goose Box makes for a smooth comfortable ride with the shocks and airbags within it.

RE: Rails vs pucks vs gooseneck mount

Howdy! When I recently purchased my new truck I decided to do away with the 5er hitch and go with a Reese Goose Box. I like that the Goose Box has it has air bag and shocks in it. Nice part is I now have a clean bed with goose neck ball that is easily removed if needed. Reese Goose Box “Happy Trails’ Chiefneon

RE: Anything to know using OEM brake controller v. aftermarket?

Howdy! I recently went from a MDT 4400 International to a new Chevrolet 3500 DRW with EOM break controller. This my first time with a truck that has a OEM controller I’ve always used a Prodigy controller before. We are fulltimers and just before leaving out with our need truck our 5er was in to have new drum brakes on all three axles. When I hooked up for our first pull with this truck and the OEM controller even with the gain set at the highest level 10 I don’t seem to have much breaking. Not sure if it’s the controller or or what. Never had this problem when using our Prodigy controller. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon New brakes need to go thru a burnishing process, report back after that has been completed. Howdy! I got over a thousand miles on them from Texas to Florida. You think that’s enough? “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: Sidewinder vs Goosebox vs BD3+1621

Any reason you went with the 4" offset ball? I ordered everything today - including a zero offset ball. Howdy! I have a Custom Hauler bed on my truck a needed the 4” offset to clear the front of the trough for the Goose Box. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: Sidewinder vs Goosebox vs BD3+1621

Howdy! When I purchased our new Chevrolet 3500 DRW a few months back I did a lot of research on the Reese Goose Box. I don’t consider it a “glorified gooseneck adapter”. The Reece Goose Box has airbag, dual shocks and rubber bumpers provide multi-directional shock absorption I purchased the 20,000 lb Goose Box and I’m very happy with it. As for its construction it is very heavy and well built. Much more so than and pin box that came with the RV. Towing with it is smooth and a comfortable ride. I have a rear camera mouthed on the back of my cab so connecting is not a problem. The only extra things needed is to connect the safety chains which are required. I did also opt to use a 4” offset goose neck ball. I wouldn’t think twice about going back to a 5er hitch after using the Goose Box. The link below has quite a few others that are using the Reece Goose Box. irv2.com discussion regarding Reece Goose Box “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: 3500 truck towing HT 5th wheel - Workable?

Howdy! What’s that saying “You can never have to much truck”. I use to get flax when I towed our 28’ Air Stream trailer with our MDT. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: Camping or Glamping?

Howdy! Before we started fulltiming over 12 years ago family and friends asked how we liked camping? I would simply reply “it’s not Camping, it’s RVing”. The biggest problem we run into was having to close between 30 and 50amp. The next question was how many people will that sleep? Answer was two comfortably. “Happy Trails “ Chiefneon

RE: Snap pads

Howdy! I’ve had them on my 5er a couple of years now. Great investment, I no longer have to deal with jack pads in areas that the jacks may sink into the ground or paving. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: Duramax L5P Fuel Mileage

What’s it getting when not towing? Howdy! I don’t know, we tow with it and use the Smart Car we carry in the toy hauler to get around in. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: Duramax L5P Fuel Mileage

Howdy! I recently purchased a new Chevy 3500 DRW Duranax Custom 2L Hauler. Did our first long pull today towing a 18,000lb plus 44’ Cyclone Toy Hauler. The computer show 8.8 mpg. Truck did a great job towing considering I down sized from a 4400 International Custom 2L Hauler. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon
