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.

RE: Ideas for a truck to pull 6500lb trailer?

Just go ahead an get a 2500 / f250 diesel and you won't have to worry about weights, and can still tow a heavier trailer WHEN the need arises,,,and it will. This. Because many (not all, but many) RV'rs end up months or a year later coming back to the forum asking about upgrading a truck because now they want a 5th wheel or a truck camper. Getting a bigger truck first allows you to tow the current TT easily and safely without worry. New diesel trucks are very easy to maintain, just like gas trucks. DEF is like filling windshield fluid; very easy to do. The power and towing capacity of diesel, and especially the exhaust brake systems, are overwhelmingly beneficial. But, a lot of people can not afford the additional costs of diesel (3500 is minimal cost difference to 2500 but definitely worth it). I was given this advice and got a 3500 even though I didn't need it at the time. After getting a 5th wheel I additionally bought a truck camper so I could camp and tow my boat. I have a choice I didn't think about when I first bought my truck. Good luck whatever you decide.

RE: New trailer (almost)

T and that your going to contact an attorney, see what that does to the conversation. Jay D. My advice is against saying you'll get an attorney involved. In my business if someone says either of the "A" words (one being attorney) then I quit speaking to them and let my attorney get involved if/when we get a letter. Once you elevate the conversation to attorney then they may just sit back and not do anything. More flys with honey, as they say. Be polite, firm and respectful is my motto. Good luck

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Look at Cavaliers, they were bred to be lap dogs. Small and easy to please disposition. With any dog you decide on, get a professional trainer and it’ll make a world of difference!

RE: Camping World Terrible Customer Service

Be aware, it may be in the fine print that any refund from cancellation could be posted at the back end of the loan (if you did a loan). Meaning, you won't see a refund as it just lowers the final payment(s) by the amount of the contracts.

RE: Kidde Fire Extinguisher recall

A couple of years ago when the recall first came out they replaced two of mine and both came with mount and straps.
