RE: Anyone with Good Year G614s G rated can Help?

Thanks Ron... This is my 5 season on them and hope to get threw till next spring before I think about swapping them out.. That just gives me something else to worry about being a week from your tire troubles.. Perhaps with my being lighter than you, that will help me get by?? . That is what my GY G614 looked like, but mine tossed the entire tread and stayed aired up..

RE: Much of a difference between 13,500 or 15,000 BTU A/C?

My thinking would be to go with the 15k... When 2 are not needed, you could alternate which one is used to possibly prolong the life... If cost is not an issue, thats my choice

RE: Pin Weight

Went to pickup our new truck last night. The cargo rating according to Chevrolet’s website is almost #3100. I looked at the sticker on the door jamb and it said not to exceed #2750. I just lost another #350. So I pissed off the salesman and backed out of the deal. We are now looking for a one ton. All the salesman kept saying was you’ll be fine. I new all he wanted to do was sell a truck. Now I’m at square one again. I have a new fifth wheel at the dealer and no way to get it home. lol EXAMPLE- 2019 Ford F-350-SRW-4X4-176" WB-6.7-Platinum trim has a payload rating of 4450# on paper... AFTER all options are added and truck is shipped, the stickers I saw on the lot are 3105#... its not what you can tow... its what you can carry

RE: Anyone with Good Year G614s G rated can Help?

Ron, I had that happen on my G614's.. darn tire was still aired up with no tread on it as I was changing it.. That was 2012.. I lost 2 of the G614's on 1 trip from PA to FL .. replaced them ALL on the road because the Tire dealer in Darlington SC was awesome.. gave me a killer deal on all

RE: Anyone with Good Year G614s G rated can Help?

Well,, while I agree with the above statement, I kinda like the the way Goodyear stands behind their product in the event of a failure.. That said, my G614's were looking like that and Goodyear told me that was normal tire wear.... The tire guy told me there was nothing wrong with them.. I sold them for $800.00 and put that cash into my Goodyear 114's.. What is the production date on your GY "H" tires? I BELIEVE there are 0315.... 3rd week 2015....But have to verify,,, may be off a few weeks..

RE: Water hose

I already have the Watts saved into my cart on their site, just was not sure about the hoses... My Watts that I use now has an issue with the screen, I forgot to remove it for the winter and it froze ... darn me... Check with RV Water Filter Store, they might be able to replace just the gauge. I had to do that a few years ago. In fact, I could probably do it again- mine is showing way low (like 20psi) when I know the pressure is higher. If I recall, it was something like $20-25. Gonna try that... It's on my to-do list for now....:)

RE: question on on hitches on the back of fifth wheels

The receiver hitch on my fifth wheel is rated for 300# carrying capacity, OR 3,000# towing capacity.. I have seen people talking about swivel trailers... and or double towing..

RE: firearm question

If you have your LTC, and would feel better carrying, go ahead.... I have never felt that I was in danger, but want to be pre paired if that ever happens. Urban jungle, or not, things could happen anywhere at any point, and some see RV'ers as poor old defenseless travelers, easy for the pickens.... I can only hope the situation never presents itself.....

RE: Water hose

Not "CHEAP" but it will be the last hose you will ever buy! They have several lengths along with SS and Brass ends. rvwaterfilterstore.com They sell fittings, valves and pressure regulators and more. Going on 4 years of full time use. https://i.imgur.com/EfKZqcXl.jpg here is a clicky Ron, are they flexible? I too would like a hose that does not fight back when rolling up in cooler weather

RE: Disney World area campgrounds with shuttle to Disney

Call Hilda. I'm willing to wager she will find a site for you. OP Here, Who is Hilda and how do I get ahold of her? Dave Hilda lives in the Fort Wilderness with her daughter, We first met her when we rented a golf cart off of her.

RE: Disney World area campgrounds with shuttle to Disney

Hello, My daughter has asked us to go to Disney with them this November. I tried Fort Wilderness and it is booked solid. When talking to them they stated November and December are their busiest times. Our daughter wants to go then to see the Christmas decorations. We have dogs so taking the RV is the best for us and them. What I am looking for is a decent campground close to Disney that perhaps has a shuttle to Disney. My daughter and her family will be staying at Port Orleans. Any advice is appreciated! Dave Dave, The trick is to go on every day and try to book.... I am a Disney agent and when they are showing full, they usually are . not.. What is the date you want to go in, and how long do you want to stay..let me look into it I sent a Private message but the dates are 11/8 through the 17th. We can arrive a day late and leave a day early if need be. Thanks for any help! Dave I received the PM.... looking into it now.. As of now I tried the following: arrive 8th, depart 17th.. nothing.. I also tried arriving a day before and or after, along with departing a day earlier and later and nothing.. That will change, I'll PM you again once I see something open up. Joe

RE: Dewinterization in Campground

It can be done.....though I prefer to do at home, if possible! If an issue arises, we’re at home to better fix the problem....tools, parts, local hardware store, etc.! What possible issues could you possibly come across from rv’s?. These things are rigorously tested to withstand any environment and then meticulously assembled using the finest craftsman and parts known to mankind. Strict quality control is adhered too along the entire process and then when finally assembled gone through with a fine toothed comb to look for the slightest of imperfections or defects. Only then is it shipped to the dealer who will do another detailed inspection before being put up for sale. I dont think I have ever heard of any manufacturer issues....sounds made up to me! This is one of the funniest posts I’ve read in a while! Good job! X2... After the first couple of words I was like, what the heck??,:B :B

Keep calling, I am sure they will open more sites..

RE: 2020 Ford F350 - XLT or Lariat / options guidance?

If you get the new sync, it will include Apple Cap Play... On my 2019, I can pug my phone into the USB and the contents will show on the screen, including WAZE, and Maps.. As far as options..... Camper Package, Heavy Service front package, I love B.L.I.S., adaptive cruise is awesome, heated and cooled seats are nice. I enjoy the twin panel moon roof, but for $1,200.00, it's on the if possible list.. Quad Beam LED lights are also real nice..
