RE: level on level ground and towing

I agree with Lynnmor, I would be focusing on the spring packs.... especially if you had the axles replaced .. Why were they replaced anyway?

RE: Tires and their pressures

"Ideally you should know your weight loaded and unloaded on your truck axles, and air them to the tire manufacturers load chart" For God's sake Margaret, you really should not be spewing all that cannon sense nonsense. :B :B :B :B :B

RE: Trying to beat the rain... Air Up.. Best of the best

Am I safe to ASSUME your at Assateague ? I do not recognize that access point? Blowing NE makes for a tough fishing day there, been there many times in that weather... BUT you know what they say..... A BAD day of fishing beats a GOOD day at work... :B

RE: belly liner repair

Wow, so many that have an Eternabond as the save all fix all. I have had great results with gorilla tape. I always cut a three sided flap, once work is done, apply tape to the three sides of the flap. Then push the flap up and seal to the cleaned surface around the opening, hinge side always forward. My black Gorilla tape pealed after 1 year on the 3 sided flap I had.... I figured I would try the eternabond to see the difference. I just added it 2 weeks ago, so we shall see

RE: belly liner repair

RE: New vehicle - MSRP?

OK guys - just want to know what to expect with prices - we've never (I mean never) bought a brand new vehicle, so want to get ideas on how it works. As we're getting older we are thinking of buying a new SUV - mainly for reliability and ease of someone else servicing it. So - when I see the MSRP on a website - is that the real price? Can I expect them to go down 30% like I hear they do with RVs? Help us figure out how it works before we go shopping. :) RIGHT NOW.... with the Supply and Demand the way it is, I would NOT expect anything close to 30%... perhaps start there with an offer and settle for less.... **. OR ** Hold of for things to get back to "Normal" and go from there

RE: S.E. Pennsylvania to North Myrtle Beach

Thank You, that is exactly what I was figuring.... Now I just need to figure out my fuel stops... Will look for places large enough to get a 41'/13'5" tall fiver into for diesel... I know Royal Farms along 113 and 13 have started to build their newer stations with truck islands so I would keep a eye out for them, below the CBBT I could not tell you what to watch for. THX.. I saw last night that Royal Farms has a few South on 113/13 with a newer one with truck lanes a few miles before the CBBT... Thats good, now for the lower portion !

RE: S.E. Pennsylvania to North Myrtle Beach

13 south to The Ches Bay Bridge Tunnel, Rt 13 to I 64 east to Chesapeake Va and then US 17 south. Scenic Non Interstate highway all the way down to Myrtle beach. Google directions Chincoteague Va to Myrtle Beach. directions either Rt 13 or Rt 17 from Chesapeake to Wilmington can be a nice drive, personally I prefer 17. So long as you are not going through Va Bch on a weekday rush hour time, it wont be that bad. Certainly better than getting around Philthy and Wilmington De. Is it large fifth wheel friendly route? I've driven all of it, but not in one trip with my A. Rt 13 from the Md line to the CBBT is a standard 4 lane divided highway, the CBBT is I believe 11' wide lanes with a 13'6" overhead clearance. Rt 13 to I-64 is again standard 4 or 6 lane divided highway, can be busy but just stay in the center/right lanes and you will be fine and basically a straight shot, no turns until you enter I 64, which will be via a right cloverleaf. Rt 17 in Chesapeake is 2 lane for about 16 miles in the Great dismal swamp, (May be all 4 lane now, been 20 years since I drove that part) once you hit NC all 4 lane divided and a nice easy drive. to Wilmington area. Thank You, that is exactly what I was figuring.... Now I just need to figure out my fuel stops... Will look for places large enough to get a 41'/13'5" tall fiver into for diesel...

RE: S.E. Pennsylvania to North Myrtle Beach

If you really just want to stay off 95. Take 81 south to 64 east. Avoids beach traffic and Balto.,DC, VA chaos. Puts you back on 95 in Richmond thought about that but can't see going 2-1/4 hours west ( that's what it takes for me to get to 81 ) to go south and then East again....... We are located north of Philly about 15 minutes off 95 so staying on the East side is just easier

RE: S.E. Pennsylvania to North Myrtle Beach

Lots of traffic around the Va Beach area on the weekend. Same thing with going down 13/113. You will be dealing with beach traffic all the way through Delaware and Maryland. YUP.... told her that.. BUT, we all know how wives listen when they have something in their heads ..:B We travel RT 1 from Wilmington to Dewey Beach 4 times a year and she hates the ride, along with our old days of OC MD when we would do 1/ 13/113 .... She is bent om staying off of 95...

S.E. Pennsylvania to North Myrtle Beach

Looking for input on a possible route change for me. We have been going to Myrtle Beach for years and have always used 95 to Lumberton. 74 East and so on..... Wife told me she wanted a change in 2 weeks.. possibly taking Rt1 in DE to 113/13 into VA Beach.. from there, either staying closer to the coast by using 11/111/41/40/140/17... - OR - taking 58 back out to 95 in Emporia VA and 95 s from there.... Anybody have any GOOD insight on these, or any suggestions .... We will be leaving on a Saturday Morning, probably around 6:00 AM or so..

RE: B&W Companion Hitch Shock replacement

Jerry, really?? You want Ron to report you to the B&W club?? Did you know there is 1 single grease zerk as well? There =should= be 3. Should be a 90 zerk to grease the head pivots so you can grease without having to take the head off to do so. Been wanting to drill and tap these for years, but have never gotten roundtuit. :-) Lyle I only have 1... The bushings are accessible once the head is removed... HITCH MAINTENANCE Grease the saddle through the grease zerk approximately every six months with multipurpose grease. This allows the coupler to pivot freely. As needed, grease the polyurethane bushings with high-grade lithium grease. Spread a thin layer of multi-purpose grease around the inside surface of the jaws where they grasp the kingpin. On page #24 is the maintenance - B & W maintenance - Companion Ford Puck

RE: BATTERIES PLUS BULBS

Huh..... I have use that company ( different locations) many times with good results... I hope you get that issue resolved without too much more aggravation. It sounds like they need some additional managerial training there !

RE: How many strokes??

Some have reported having grease on the brakes without ever having used the zerks. Apparently the assembler didn’t follow instructions either. Back in 2016 I had my brand new fifth wheel at a local shop to have the drums replaced with disc brakes.... The trailer was a few months old at best, 3 of the 4 drums had grease on them from assembly.

RE: time to renew

All I can say is my experience. 3 years ago we had a neighbors tree fall and total our 4 year old Redwood Fifth wheel. We had Progressive and boy were they awesome to deal with.... Within 3 weeks, we had a check in hand with ZERO arguments... Well worth it. Considering how clear the damage, and fault, was, it was a slam-dunk claim. Paying quickly was in their best interests... It was a legitimate claim Not 100% true.. The adjuster at one point told me he was having issues getting it to the totaled point.... They have to get a number of what it would cost to replace it, get a buyer for it, and add the repair costs... the repair cost has to get to a certain percentage in order for it to be totaled. With a higher cost RV, getting to that percentage was not easy, but his take was that he could not inspect the frame due to the condition, but "ASSUMED" it was bent.. that put our numbers over the top.
