RE: Disc Brakes

Man! Those kits are expensive. I would love to put them on my fifthwheel, but at $1,300, I'll pass for now. Yea, I said that.... then . . . . I saw the light ! there is truly no comparison,,, NONE... I too have seen the light :B This all reminds me of when I first EXPERIENCED using a B&W hitch. ;) Why did I somehow think you were going to spoil this thread , no not really :B You fan boys have finally worn me down , besides there is more important things going on right now, unfortunately. I started this thread actually for a little distraction ,we all need that right now .

RE: Disc Brakes

Congratulations on the new rig!!! Thanks, its a bit of an upgrade from our old 2008 Montana fifth wheel. This has the level up, better suspension supposedly :) It sure tows well, I guess thats all that counts. Disc brakes , I assume not DISK, as some refer too :B The larger double door fridge. The side bathroom ,with everything in the one room, with two doors one too the bedroom, and one to the hallway, thats pretty nice . 50" TV, probably a 40" in the bedroom, overall just a nicer fifth wheel . Lost a closest near the entry door, that we will have to get used too not having .Pullout desk under the TV instead of a built in one on the Montana, can still have a place to tie fly's , just not as convenient . The nicest thing my wife likes is the stand alone island that you can walk around , the Montana did not have that We really had no intentions of getting a new one ,the old Montana was good enough for what we do in traveling , but could not pass up the deal . I was surprised the Montana sold so quick, it was in pretty good shape for going on 13 years old. But people are pretty distracted right now . Well ??? your killing us here ! !! ! What kind is it ? model ? floorpan ?? Anyway., Good Luck with it ! Happy Camping ! Its a 2015 Big Country 3150 RL . Awesome, Hope it brings you years of trouble free miles ! ! I can only by what the friend told me, he had it traded , it made no difference to him if I bought it or not. He told me it had been a pretty good one, with no major issues. But its a 5 year old used fifth wheel . I have no illusions that things can't go wrong, although it is in great shape . Being full timers they decided they wanted something a bit bigger, so they went to a modest sized fifth wheel to nearly as long as you can get at 42' Big Horn 3925 MLP

RE: Disc Brakes

Man! Those kits are expensive. I would love to put them on my fifthwheel, but at $1,300, I'll pass for now. Definitely not cheap. All I can say is , if you are talking about the suspension . I can only go by what the previous owner told me, being a friend I trust what he said. He is a full timer , tows a lot of miles. . He told me the improvement was worth it to him, the disc brakes ,those speak for themselves . Obviously I never towed his fifth wheel with the OE suspension ,so as said I can only go by what he said. Short of putting on IS suspension , MorRyde , Comfort ride or similar are probably the best to upgrade too .

RE: Disc Brakes

Exciting, isn't it !! !! I was floored the first tie I towed with discs back on my 08 KZ fifth Wheel... I had no idea. The fifth wheel seems to be able to stop the truck. I set the truck to the heavy electric hydraulic setting ,and had the gain at about 8 on heavy electric for my old Montana. I had to set the gain down to 4. I would of locked up those disc brakes pretty easily set at 8. Im pretty sure they will lock up anyway on a panic stop set at 4 .

RE: Disc Brakes

Pics??? What upgrade??? MORryde??? NOTHING better than Disk Brakes. Anyone saying Drums are just as good, well...... Your buddy did get scrued as he did not get the trade in value removed from his total cost so he could have saved Sales Tax on the trade amount. I had a friend sell me his 98 12V for what Dave Smith would have paid him on trade. I asked what about the sales tax he would have saved??? He said I would rather you have it! Good Friend!!!As I have stated before, unless you check with your state DMV, you don't know that you couldn't have applied the money you received to lower the sales tax. That is the way it works in Missouri which I didn't know for quite a few years. You have to fill out the forms as to how much you received when you sold it, and that applies to the price that was paid for the new unit. Sales tax is reduced accordingly. No forms here in Utah , you trade in a vehicle ,they subtract the trade in value , you pay the sales tax on the difference not the purchase price of the new vehicle , thats done right at the dealer, and you are done ,and licensed .

Have not heard of a place that charges sales tax not crediting the trade value. But it's possible I could be wrong. You are not wrong, it applies in Texas ,and Utah, Now the in ,and out in Utah not sure that works anymore here, it was years ago I did it .

What we did was the dealer suggested an in and out, and I would buy from the dealer for the agreed price , it didn't dawn on either of us, and I had done that once before selling a truck to a friend, and did an in ,and out with a dealer for the agreed price . I payed the agreed price to the dealer where he traded it in , in Texas , it did cost me a couple hundred extra for their processing fee's , not a problem there. It was a great deal on the fifth wheel, and the savings on taxes to the friend. The suspension upgrade was the Comfort Ride by Roadmaster, with shocks. I don't know much about it, this friend belongs to a Heartland group. I actually helped him in Arizona last winter install it on another members fifth wheel, a bunch of them went to it. I do know its a slip spring leaf spring suspension with shocks. The fifth wheel rides ,and takes the bumps ,and overpasses much better then my old Montana with the MorRyde . They are both nearly the same dry weight ,with the same GVWR 15,500 When this deal got started in early March we were together in Arizona, he was headed to Texas on the 16th of March to get his new one ,he is a full timer ,and I was going home to Utah, and put mine up for sale. If I got mine sold in a reasonable time I would go to Texas to buy his old one. Mine sold pretty quick, but with whats going on I didn't want to go all the way to Texas. So I had it transported to Cheyenne , Wy, that was as close as I could get them to come from Texas , then he headed to Indiana to pick up a new fifth to deliver to the dealer we were dealing with ,it worked out pretty well. Still a 900mile round trip for me ,not bad . It would of been nearly 3000 miles .

Disc Brakes

Bought a new fifth wheel ,new to us anyway. Bought from a friend , he had negotiated a trade in for a new 2020, and of course they were not giving him anything near what it was worth, I offered to buy it for that, and he said why not. Only thing was he was going to remove the upgraded suspension ,and put the stock one back on, and the upgraded one on his new fifth wheel, I agreed to pay him the extra, and leave it on ,and he could buy a new upgrade for his . The upgrade on it was pretty new. Anyway to the disc brakes that are on this one I bought from him, this is our four fifth wheel, never towed with disc brakes ( no I didn't have to pay him extra for that upgrade, he ate that :) ) Never dreamed how nice they are, between that upgraded suspension ,and disc brakes ,it was an absolute pleasure to tow. I thought my old Montana with the MorRyde suspension , and pin box towed pretty good , but not as good as this one. And this one has the standard pin box, but smooth as glass. I will have to say anyone that is considering disc brakes ,and have never towed with them, you have no idea what you are missing, and would highly recommend them. Sure convinced me how effect they are. Can't say I was skeptical, just didn't have any experience with them on a fifth wheel. Thought about it on my Montana ,but just never got around to it, and the older it got the less money I wanted to spend on it.

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

My wife and I talk about going Full Time in a few years, but in all honesty, we will most likely be snowbirds. We love our house and enjoy Northwest Montana, but to be able to leave the snow to travel around exploring other parts of the country for several months out of the year would be heaven. I don't think a FT lifestyle would suit us. The longest experience in our TT was 6 weeks and we looked forward to a home without wheels. Six weeks is about it for us ,even southwestern Montana for six weeks fly fishing in the summer, in about six weeks its time to be home. Same in Arizona in the winter ,much less appeal , just warmer then home 4-6 weeks same thing, time to be home.

RE: 2011 Ram HD 3500 DRW Cummins 68RFE 523k miles!

The only thing in our snowbird park that came close to winning the noise contest over my mildly tuned 24V was the garbage truck and the 7.3 PS's, I still hear a couple 7.3's in the park along with early 5.9 Cummins. The 7.3's do require more maintenance than the early 5.9's. Yes , my early 99 Superduty was as loud as any I've heard ,IMO there were a lot of them more quiet then mine . It finally wore its welcome out after nearly 16 years, great truck, but no power compared to the new ones, one of the reason, plus as said the maintenance n cooling system , additive etc. to finally trade it in .

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

They should have a chart, based on time, how many people are still in denial! What I am reading in this thread is pretty remarkable.Sobering, isn't it? My home borders a small city park . You don’t know the half of it . I see it daily from my patio window , and I can guarantee there is no social distancing going on with many , and I only see a small sampling .

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

I believe that nearly everyone will be fine. That's agreed to by almost all the people involved. The numbers usually thrown around that I've seen is over 90%, and around 80% of the people who show symptoms will be mild cases. IOW, if people had ignored the hype from the media, stayed at home if they were feeling sick, stayed at home unless they really needed to go out, and stayed away from crowds, we wouldn't be having the hysteria fanned by the media. Most people will be able to do their jobs, most people will be able to get things to the grocery stores, shops and such. Closing sporting events, slowing mass crowd convergences is a good thing. No one, and I me NO ONE knows positively what will happen over the coming months, but acting like the depression is around the corner and acting like it's the end of civilization is simply asinine. Stay home, chill out, and self-medicate, with the drug of choice. Mine is beer, just not any of that lite stuff that calls itself beer. Dark ales, all the way. What I believe this is real , and I agree we need to chill and stay home . But until “ALL” take this seriously , we are in for some bad shi!! and a long haul . We are a free society that a lot of us think that we are free to do what we want. We had a 24 year test positive a couple days ago here in our county in Utah . Went skiing with his buddies to Colorado . At least one of his buddies tested positive also . They interviewed him and one of his comments were , I wished I had listened . There lies our biggest enemy with this fight , not listening to the warnings . We need to think people
