RE: National General Rate Increases

Howdy! I’ve had the same problems withNG insurance. I refused to renew with them after have multiple problems with them over my first and only claim involving a simple windshield replacement. I switched back to USAA and should have never left. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: About to GO Full Time

Howdy! We have a 2014 Heartland Cyclone 4000 we fulltime In. If I had it to do over today I would be looking at a DRV Fullhouse at the very least. The next step would be to spend the money on a custom one from New Horizon. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: Goose box vs Andersen

Howdy! I’ve been using the Goose Box on my RV for a few months now. Personally I would not go back to a 5er hitch unless I exceed the weight limit. I also use a 4” offset ball. My truck has a custom hauler bed with a trough and the 4” offset ball is needed to fit inside the trough. I have a camera in the headache rack of my truck which helps and that along with my wife we’ve gotten pretty good at hitching up. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Howdy! Just had mine done at Walmart. Shell Rotella T6, filter and lube $80.00. In and out in about 30 minutes. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon They put $75 worth of juice and parts (on sale) into your truck for $80? I’ll take everything I own there! Howdy! Actually I was very surprised when I got the bill to pay them. They sale Rotella T6 for $9.14 a quart and $19.97 a gallon. My 2018 Chevorlet 3500 takes 10 quarts at and oil change. So yea I’m happy with that

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Get Fumoto valve and you will smile each time you drain the oil. Howdy! Those are great if you change your oil yourself. I had one in my truck when we first started fulltiming and had places refuse to do the work with it installed are I’ed go back to using one. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: Recommendations for Receiving Mail while Full Timing?

Howdy! We’ve been using Escapees Mail Service for over 13 years and they have provided us with great service. It’s my understanding they now provide mail service for not only Texas but also South Dakota and Florida Escapees mail service “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

RE: AT&T TV

Howdy! I don’t know anything about the new bundles for AT&T TV, but we’ve been using it for over a year and started when it was Dierctv Now. The only thing that has changed for us is the name. We’ve had great service as fulltimers and as stated we cut the cord over a year ago and stopped using satellite. We do have unlimited data service with AT&T and Verizon so that does help. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon

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
