RE: New Truck and 5th wheel

My Redwood had a published DRY pin at 2600#.. Loaded an camp ready I am at 3460# with a GVW of 16,500.. My SRW is within MOST of the numbers, well at least the important numbers that is.. My axle rating is 7100# and I am at 6960.. my tires are rated at 3750# each which gives me 7500# capacity on each axle.. I am over my trucks GVW by 320# but that does not bother me as I am under the 2 big numbers.. My Rv has disc brakes, so no added stopping to the truck, and tows like a dream.. When I start towing more than a weekend warrior it will be a DRW for sure...

RE: Assateague Island

I have not stayed there over that time, but have been there in the spring-summer and fall... The one concern I would have ( if its even a concern? ) would be the temps and wind... with it being right on the Atlantic, the wind typically is higher, and at that time of year it would be blowing cold air... possibly That's all fine if that's what you want, I am not so sure there are any other negatives???

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

"There are no reasonable plans on how to decommission the nuclear plants at end of life. (3 Mile Island is one)" We can't even agree on plans for plastic straws and grocery bags. Save the Sea Turtles, to heck with everyone else

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Only thing holding back electric vehicles, including trucks and RVs, is a significant step up in battery technology for more range. Power is a non issue. And electric motors are far more efficient than internal combustion engines. agreed..... I know a couple people with Tesla's... great vehicle, but the range as of now would not work for towing... TFL truck ( I think ) did a special on electric towing.. very interesting to see just how fast that battery dropped as soon as they started towing... find that thread, or link and check it out... on edit- here is that link -electric car tows trailer

RE: Back hurting from bed in travel trailer - need advice please

I'd like to avoid spending $450 on a new mattress if I can... (shrug) Getting rid of back pain is worth way more than $450 to me. X2

RE: Out of the blue....

That's awesome Gary ! ! ! ! I have a great friend that I met here on RV.net.. in fact he has helped me become a better person, and got me through some difficult times in my life... He is now considered as one of my best friends... Funny story, back after chatting for some time here, I found out that he was going to be within 20 minutes of the house.. We chatted and agreed for me to go visit him and his wife at their RV... I did and they were awesome, my DW would not go, as she said I could be going to meet a serial killer :B Anyway, all 4 of us are now very close and I thank God for them ! that was 11 years ago, and now we camp together every chance we get Way to go Gary !

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

I wish we ONLY made it to the teens here... Back in the day I used to just blow the lines out... then I got a newer trailer ( 1997 Holiday ) and found out on the first trip of the season that the toilet valve had broken. Started the pink stuff later that year and never went back.. I live in the North East, it can get cold , and stay cold for days/weeks in the winter here... for the cost, it's just not worth it in my eyes...

RE: Stuck along a fence

I was in a truck stop last year and saw a guy pulling a brand new camper about 2" off the wall, the wrong way.... I said to my wife " I hope he doesn't plan on turning into a spot there".... With that he turned a hard left into the spot...... It was sad watching and listening to the crunch... I was jogging to them, but did not make it in time... Always know your position.. go to an empty lot and PRACTICE

RE: Least mountainous route to Myrtle Beach

MOST if not ALL of us East Coast people AVOID 95 up here like the plague... From Detroit to Myrtle Beach, I WOULD NOT come to the Phila area, that is exactly what you described as the proposed route. ....... I would rather pull the mountains then deal with Phila, Wilmington, Baltimore, Washington DC, Richmond.. ALL of which would be on your route.. I usually use 301 and avoid as much city traffic as possible

RE: Florida turnpike or I-95??

a few years back we went to the Keys and before we did, we asked a lot of questions... EVERYONE who answered told me to jump off 95 aroundFt. Pierce and run the turnpike... sometimes you have to pay a little to save a lot... this time, that savings would be time in the long run..

RE: Terrible Trucks

I buy what I want, when I want and make sure I can afford it before I sign on the line... My goal is that If I can pay it off in 2 years, Im in... And the best part is..... I really don't care what others say or do... it's their money, their decisions.. You wanna play, you gotta pay.... :B

RE: Electric slide outs

I remember when I was RV shopping back in "14-15".. The 1st RV dealership told me that Hydraulic slides were the only type to get.. And by the way, they happen to have those on the floor.. The 2nd dealership told me that electric were the only type to get, and wow, they also had them on the lot. And the LAST dealership swore by cable slides, yup, you guessed it, thats what they sold ! Anyway, I have had basically all 3 ( including Schwintek ) and really can't complain about any of them.... Just like anything else.. show them some TLC and they will thank you by running

RE: Anti roll bars for fifth wheel with air ride.

I know a guy who installed the Centerpoint on his Redwood Fifth Wheel, he never once complained about it. In fact, he commented whenever anyone was discussing the expense of installing the Morryde IS....
