RE: Great Service at RV repair facility

One by us as well. Smaller independent shop that does excellent work, does what he says he will and does it on time. My experience is, the bigger the facility the poorer the work ethic is. He was a service tech many years ago for the place I purchased my NEW 1996 Wilderness TT from... then he was the lead service tech at the place I purchased my 1998 Prowler TT from.. they both closed and I just assumed he went away... Was looking for someone to do the mod on my fifth wheel and ran across the name, stopped in to see him and memory started to kick in..

Great Service at RV repair facility

Let me start of by saying that I AM NOT associated with Greg's RV Repair and Service in anyway... I needed someone to install a tilting bed lift custom into my new Fifth wheel, didn't want to deal with the dealer 3-1/2 HRS away so I dropped over and chatted with Greg at - Greg's RV repair & Service I am glad I did... He did fantastic work, ontime, and as promised... He also did some extra items while the RV was there.. I know its hard to find GOOD, HONEST RV repair anywhere so I thought I would share this.. If your local to SE Pennsylvania and need service, give them a call and tell them Joe sent you... Great People !

RE: Help!!! Frame broke

You should be able to haul a trailer WITH ALL of the tanks full.. fresh - black - grey. NOW, IF you were way overloaded elsewhere AND had 100% full fluids, that's an issue...

RE: Jacking up a Fifth Wheel

I go to a bunch of industrial auctions for work, I picked up a 20 ton pneumatic jack, and 2 10 ton Industrial jack stands.. Now I use my 6 point system to do that work for me...

RE: Air Ride Pin Box

I had the tri-glide and it was ok until it was close to failure.... I routinely greased all 9 points and started getting a ton of slop... They (Lippert) replaced it with the Flex-Air and that was a real nice ride... My new 5er has the Morryde pinbox and so far I really like it! Time will tell if I like it as much as the trailair

RE: need new tires

OVER 2.5 years on the market with stellar reviews and no failures that I have seen mentioned. Go to Discount Tire, they have good pricing. GY ENDURANCE are TOP Quality and US Made. Run 75mph if you choose also! I was just checking out tires for my bro-in law's Jayco TT... the 225/75/R15 Endurance has a sped rating of N - or 87 ! ! !! Thats BAD NEWS for my sister in law :B

RE: New style entry steps

y'all can say what you want but . they are the best step I have used in an RV since I started camping close to 30 years ago.... It looks like people that have never used them are the most critical of them??? Tomato - Tomato I am critical of them because I believe they are a bad idea. There are people who own them that don't realize the shortcomings of the steps until they already have them. Some just assume because they are a new idea,they must be good without ever questioning how they operate. I was initially interested in more stable steps. However I was immediately turned off by the debris scoop effect that occurs when you flip the stairs up into the trailer. To me that was an obvious flaw when I first saw them. My next issues is they block the doorway. I keep my RV at home and often just sit things inside the door that need to go in the RV. Having the doorway blocked by the steps looked like a hinderance vs. just opening the door a setting items inside. I could see both of these shortcomings without actually owning the Mor Ryde steps Now what I was not aware of, that actual owners have posted about is the issue of the steps keeping the door from closing when the patio is higher than the driveway. :S. I have also read of those having doorway threshold issues as a result of the Mor Ryde steps attachment points. I have Glow Steps by Torxlift they are just as stable as the Mor Ryde without any of the negatives. For those that a are satisfied with there Mor Ryde steps you may find my comments invalid. For those considering Mor Ryde steps there are other options. Those new fangled steps you see on the new RV's are not necessarily an improvement. Don't take my word for it. Examine them closely. and decide for yourself. I apologize if you believe I was talking about you... I was not... It was a general statement... I realize that there are a lot of people who think they are a bad idea because they already know the limitations, thats fine..... then there are people that think they are a bad idea because they don't have them, or don't understand them..

RE: Who has a good RV oven

**UPDATE** Sent pics to Redwood ( now Keystone) and they agreed it was bad, sent a new oven and had it installed Friday... set to 350 and it is actually 350, what a great thing !

RE: 6 people in an F350

Back in 2015 I picked up my F-350 and the first camping trip was 1200 mile 1 way with me, DW, our 2 kids 15 and 20 and our 2 nieces also 15 and 20... I have the 40-20-40 up front with the 3rd belt in the middle... Stick with as many belts as you have.....

RE: New style entry steps

has anybody considered having to make a quick emergency exit in case of fire etc. with the steps in/up? bumpy I do not think they are in motorhomes..... I have only seen them in trailers.... AND if used in a trailer, they would not be UP while people are in the RV . .

RE: New style entry steps

is there a video of these in use anywhere? from looking at the pictures it seems that this "step ladder" is hinged up into the door opening and then the door is closed. bumpy Here - You Tube

RE: New style entry steps

I have had them on my last 2 campers and really love them...They are 100% fully adjustable and you can also adjust each foot by itself for side to side adjustment... I have NOT had a problem yet using them.. As far as the dirt inside the camper..... I have a hand whisk broom as i am folding them Up I give them a fast sweep... ** So it sounds to me that we can add the new steps into the same category as : Slide toppers, trip pod stabilizers, brands, trucks, and the list goes on.. It's all personal preference . . TO ME the stability they give are second to none !
