RE: What does having an appointment mean?

Here’s what “appointment “ actually means with RV dealer service centers; 1. You have an appointment for April1: you bring it in and they will look at it to see what work needs to be done. Then you pick it up and, 2. You make another appointment while parts are being ordered and a few weeks later you bring it back and, 3. Then your RV is “in line” to be worked on and several weeks or months later it’s ready but when you pick it up you find they didn’t do a repair right or missed something, or one part didn’t come in yet. Or the tech broke something unrelated. So you go back to #1! Then, you determine you’d rather learn to do things yourself or hire a mobile mechanic and have a lot less stress on your life!

RE: How much would YOU offer?

I don't buy new because I don't want to pay more than what its actually worth. Seems like those you listed are the same; price is more than they're worth. Like others said, make an offer you are willing to pay and see what they are willing to sell it for. If it is just listed, then expect a "no thanks". If it has been on the market a while, hopefully they counter.

RE: getting trapped inside a park

Wasn’t a park but GPS took us under the freeway thinking we could enter there but we couldn’t. Down a long gravel road until I found a narrow ranch driveway. Had to backup the TT into the yard and had only 1/2” on each side of the metal poles to maneuver.

RE: Working in California

Register as a Ca resident since you're living and working there. Why take a chance. If you get stopped by a cop expect a ticket otherwise.

RE: Passport America

What the others have said is true. I will add that I have used PA parks and have found some that were outstanding. Others, not so good-but better than staying next to running 18 wheeler at a noisy truck stop or rest area. With a little research on your way to the next stop you can usually find a PA park that can be OK or better.

RE: Mattress Size & Thickness Recommendations (Bigfoot 2500)

We just bought a memory foam topper on top of the stick mattress and it was great. Much cheaper and less hassle. I’d suggest you try that first. Look at about a 3 or 4” good memory foam topper.

RE: 2019 Chevy 2500 and Sundance XLT with new hitch too high

I’m a few inches nose high but I think having the 6 inches clearance is more important. I’ve been towing like this for 7 years and have had no problems. Upgrading to a higher load range tire helps with any tire concerns about the weight distribution nose high may cause.

RE: Looking at new better tires, need advice.

1. look at the side of the tire and look for numbers like "122/05" that is the week and year the tire was manufactured. Many RVers keep tires for about 5 years and then replace them. 2. Look at the possibility of switching to 15" rims for more tire capacity and stability. 3. I prefer to have the highest rated tire that will fit on my trailer i.e. G rated tires on my 15th. wheel.. . This! Go to the highest load rating you can; I’ve gone through several brands of tires and it wasn’t until I went up two load ranges (now with G rates on my 5th wheel too) that I’m comfortable with my tires! This is the best advice you’ll get.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

BW makes one of the best hitches for 5th wheels. I did a lot of research and decided on BW and luckily my dealer only sold them with their trailers.

RE: 5th wheel tires

G rated tires! take your pick on which one, it's the load range that will help you. I can't believe I didn't change over years ago!

RE: Rearview camera hardwired on fifth wheel

I mounted my camera on a rung of the back ladder with hose clamps then ran the wires down and under my 5th wheel zip tied all the way up to the front. From there I ran the wire into my front compartment and out and up to my pin box where I had another wire from my truck's rear door (I had a cig plug power and ran it under the floor mats then shut the rear door on the wire) to my pin box where the wires plugged into each other. I had one wire that was an extension and everything plugged in easy. When I stop I just unplug one wire, roll it up and place it under the rear floormat of my truck; then reverse when I'm ready to hit the road. Everything including camera and monitor cost me $60 and works great. PM me if you want details on the purchase.

RE: RV repossession question

I hope you had a written contract. If not, then they could say they bought it from you or anything else. As above, time for a lawyer! Good luck

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

What protection do you think a bank will provide you!? They only know you who will be on the hook once you sign their finance agreement. They probably won’t care what happens to the dealership once they have you financed for the loan. If you think the bank will help you if the dealer goes bankrupt, you’ve got a lot more research to do! As many others have said, use a credit card for a deposit and do a thorough PDI before giving any other money. Other dealers can do any warranty work if needed. And you’re better off doing any minor repairs yourself. Good luck

RE: Double Towing Length Laws

I'd be surprised if someone actually admits to illegally towing over the length. If they were to have a bad accident it would be easy for law enforcement or a civil attorney to find this thread where they admitted they knew they were over the limit but towed anyway. You're actually asking who breaks the law? Just because someone else does it will you feel better towing over the limit? Sorry, just not smart to do. Good luck though.

RE: Make An Offer

Good advice above - all of it. Frankly for me it just wouldn't be worth taking achance and dealing with CW. You can go to just about any dealership and simply make an offer. That's how I've bought all mine. This! Before doing business with any company do a search and see how your'e treated AFTER the sale; meaning warranty issues. This will tell a lot. (research this site too). I saved $5,000 just by driving a little farther. I can do most maintenance myself so warranty wasn't a concern. Good luck; and did I say research the company!?

RE: Best truck for Northern Lite 10-2

Dually diesel for when you decide to change to another TC or 5th wheel trailer. Eventually most change.

RE: Selling my RV advice

I have sold three RVs on Craigslist and done well. If your rig is clean and maintained, take a LOT of photos that show it and it will sell for a reasonable price. The key is reasonable; don't think you will get what you think it is worth to you; but what it is actually worth (see similar rigs online). If it is in good or great shape then take your time for someone who knows what they are getting. You will most likely get lowball offers so don't waste your time with them. Either the buyer is serious or they're not. Most consignments benefit the company more than the seller; unless your'e not interested in meeting other RVrs. Good luck

RE: ST Tires ???

After having tire problems I ended moving up to G load range, Hartland tires from Discount Tires. Great tires and good price.
