And then there are some things so foolish they scream to be deleted

RE: Please help me figure out your capacity

Any tow vehicle is an engineered system with manufacturer rated parts. Each component of the system has ratings and to do it safely you should not exceed any of the numerous ratings of the vehicle. Learn more about the various ratings before making a decision.

RE: Crossing state lines laws

Your dogs and birds will be no issue; traveling with a primate can be an issue according to: http://www.monkeypro.com/primatelegalandregulations.asp http://www.petmonkeyinfo.com/laws.html Good Links, especially monkeypro.com, lays it out clearly by state. I find it funny that Florida has restrictions, we have large colonies of monkeys living in the wild. It seems that a week doesn't go by with out a newspaper/TV article about a monkey in someone's neighborhood. :) The monkeys in Florida are non native which is the very reason for the restriction

RE: keystone 'hideout' vs cougar??

Trim level and price only, otherwise they use the same basic components and are made on the same production lines. Fluff is the only difference

Those locks are a standard set up on most TT's. Don't worry, you won't do it more than once if you learn from mistakes. I now only use the deadbolt and I have spare sets of keys in the TV. I will never be locked out again.

RE: Need advice on choosing a TT/TV

They seem like reasonable options on paper but you need to learn some more about payload of TV's as well. With 3-4 kids in the mix it can limit your choices. You should also be prepared for how a 30' trailer will affect the vehicles stability and performance. Keep reading the forums for a better understanding of what you're getting into. I think you're on the right track to some great memories but it's not cheap and there is a learning curve to reach a comfort level you can tolerate.

RE: Basic XL Super Duty Question

I know the split bench (40/20/40) was available from 2003 on. I ordered my 2009 XL with bucket seats and added a center console from the higher trim levels.

he would rather pummel CW over and over than get the manufacturer who made that junk fix it, seems to be his favorite pastime.

RE: winterize fresh water tank??

Thanks guys, all good advice and I have done all of the things you guys have described and they do work, I guess. Dutchmen your advice is the best. I have had so many issues with this camptastrophy that I have parked it behind my barn on the other side of my farm and just forgotten about it. I'll find another retirement hobby. I'm just on here venting and hoping I can prevent someone else from going thru what I have been thru with this nightmare. You really should find another pastime. Most of us do this for relaxation.

RE: Tongue Weight

Your tongue weight will be in the neighborhood of 800 lbs (the rating for the receiver is stamped on it) and should not be a concern unless you want to go full blown psycho and weigh every possible combination of factors affecting the truck/trailer wheel spot by wheel spot. I know some people do but I have better things to do.

RE: front door lock broke,,NOW WHAT???{{{{UPDATE}}}}}}

UPDATE}}}}}} UPDATE}}}}}} OK, when I got up this Am i contacted my car ins. company (Geico), they also insure our trailer and explained the problem with my lock and he stated that we are covered for a locksmith to come out up to 100.00 per incident. So they contacted a locksmith in our area and they found one that would do the job for 55.00. So 2 hours later he showed up and stuck a lock picking pick in the cylinder and popped open the lock. he said that on these FIC locks a pin inside sometimes slips making the lock think its locked and somehow will not let the key to be inserted. He stated that it happens sometimes as the lock gets older and the parts start to wear down inside. He said it may not ever happen again but advised to replace the lock since they are fairly a cheap insurance . So I will look for one on line and replace it this weekend. So all in all everything worked out fine with no damage being caused to anything and best of all no cost to me. Want to thank everyone for all the help, suggestions and advise that was offered. As usual, everyone on here is always ready to help out when ever a problem arises. This is my first place to come to to see what can be done no matter what goes wrong. THANK YOU ALL AGAIN. Sanity wins and no travel trailers were harmed in the process. Nice work. Even if you would have had to pay for the locksmith it was always a better choice over cutting up your RV.

RE: So Long

Maybe he decided not to participate any more and left. We may never know. While being critical of CW is tolerated some of the more recent stuff borders on bashing by some and is completely out of bounds and uncalled for. If he did get banned he wouldn't be the first or last. I've come close a few times myself.

RE: Power Issue in my 2014 Rockwood Travel Trailer

Found the issue. I hooked the battery up wrong and it caused the 2 fuses behind the converter to blow. Actually Camping World found the issue. They were nice enough to get me in ahead of everyone else so I can come home and pack up to go. Thanks for all the advice! You should go to the CW service forum and post your experience there. It seems that a regular contingent over there feel CW is the most inept incompetent service provider that ever surfaced on the planet in spite of their stunning success as a company. I say well done.

RE: Shopping for a trailer to pull with a van...

Pop up under 3500 lbs is the best option
