RE: Smaller Propane Tanks

I ditched the big tanks years ago when they were going out of date. I swap the smaller ones out when they are getting close to expiration date and get ones with a better date. Never had a problem. I also carry a few extras in the truck bed.

RE: Upgrade to 5th wheel

I always go with the gvw and not the built weight. You will slowly start adding more things when you start using it and will find out you will start getting close to your gvw before you know it. Just like tires always fill to the max air, I go by the GVW. Just my 2 cents. That is how I do it. Good luck on your new fiver.

RE: RV wind deflectors do they work we will see

Here is a side view that shows how far away from the trailer they are. I don't think it is too effective though. I think it needs to be closer.I think it would be closer on a short bed truck. https://i.imgur.com/qVz6Ufal.jpg

RE: Repair Price

I had a 95 Chevy Astro van that the compressor failed. I did the work myself except for the evac. It cost 1100.00 back in 2006 so that price is not too far out of range for 2022. Good luck.

RE: How many of you own an EV?

None for me thanks, The most battery operated things for me are my Ryobi tools. I have a 2007 Sonata with 303,000 miles and is still going strong, My 2017 Sonata has 113,000 and hope to get the milage of the 2007 one, my 2002 Ford F-350 dually is turning 38,000 so I don't think I will be worried about having to get a high priced ev. I will suffer with the gas vehicles.

RE: Stops Catalytic Converter thefts! (inexpensive method)

My brother moved just recently to Fallon Nevada. Small little town 6 hours north of Las Vegas. While his truck and trailer were in a RV storage lot loaded and ready to go away for the week, when they arrived to leave he started up the truck and the cat was missing. they were unable to go. These thieves are everywhere.

Mini Split A.C. in their fiver

I was wondering if anyone has put a mini split a.c. in their fiver or trailer and if so how do they like it and how does it work especially if you have 2 rooms like a fifth wheel. I have seen a lot of you tube videos but never heard first hand from anyone. Just curious.

RE: RV wind deflectors do they work we will see

I have one,though it looks good but it really does not save me any fuel. it is too far away from the trailer to do any good, but it does help with the bugs.https://i.imgur.com/cG7axBFl.jpg

RE: Your Rig

Here is my old goat. 2002 Ford F-350 Dually V-10 and 2005 Keystone Challenger 34TBH. They are both old but still going. Truck is not a race horse but it gets us there. She only has 38,000 miles on her so she still has some life left in her. https://i.imgur.com/PCjQMx1l.jpg

RE: Pleated Blind Peg

Same as way2roll said. Use toothpicks with wood glue and when dry screw back into it.

RE: ALWAYS something!

Unfortunately things are not made to last anymore. I still have a 2005 tv in my trailer that is 26 inch and is heavier then **** but still works and my manual awning is still working but this year needs a replacement fabric,anything I bought in the last 5-6 years gives me trouble one way or another. My truck is a 2002 and has 38000 miles on it and the only problem I had was a bad fuel pump and that is why I will keep it until it won't go anymore.

RE: Does Anybody??

I just looked it up and they say about 50-125 watts depending on the size of the printer.

RE: RV registration in SD

I would check your states codes. I work for Coca Cola and all their trucks and trailers were registered in Illinois for many years then one day they came with all new Calif. plates for all the vehicles. I think you have to be out of the state for a certain amount of time to do it.

Easy startup for A.C.

I was recently scrolling you tube for info on A.C. easy starts and came across easy startup plug in version. It was pretty interesting that it is a plug in at the post and is blue tooth so you can watch what is going on and is also a surge protector and will monitor you voltage spikes. A little pricey but if you sell your trailer you can take it with you. I was just wondering if anyone has bought one yet and your thoughts.

RE: Replacement Awning Fabric

Get a new replacement fabric with the aluminum sheild. They protect from the sun. I replaced one on my last trailer before I sold it to my brother 20 years ago. Mine is gone with no sheild ,his still is going strong. I also have used eternabond on the tops of my replacment slideout awnings to protect the exposed tops when roll up and it has been working great for 5 years now and still is working.

RE: Fifth wheel length question

I have a 38 ft.and am too big at a few places I think 32 - 36 would be ideal for me.

RE: Is It Worth It?

I own a gas F 350 crewcab dually. I bought it in 2005 used with 18500 miles on it for 25,000. I now have 37000 on it. It is just to camp and small chores around the house. It does what I need and no it won't due 70 up a big hill, more like 40- 50 but I get their. I can't justify the cost of a new truck at 70,80,000 so I will struggle a little. I can buy a whole lot of gas for that much. She is old but still in good condition so I am keeping it.

RE: 5th wheel front tripod

They do take the wiggle out of the front of the trailer. I now use the JT stabilizers on the landing gear now. They are much easier to use. I did have a 30 ft. Fiver and had the landing gear switch get stuck and I had the 2 leg pin stabilizer and by the time I noticed the switch was stuck the landing gear was 8 inches off the ground. It held the front of that trailer up until I got the feet back on the ground and they were not even bent.

RE: Baggage Door Catch

I just switched my main compartment door to 2 magnetic ones and I love them. They are very strong and holds my big door just fine.

RE: Champion Dual Fuel 4500w Generator---$825

I have been looking too but would have to buy one more expensive because I live in the great state of Calif. and they won't ship it here. I would have to have it shipped to my brothers house in Vegas and drive to get it which would cost a 100.00 in fuel to get it so I would have to order from someone who will ship it here.I found one site that will ship it here but 100.00 more. Was checking out the difference from the 200991 and 200998 and 200998 has slightly higher running amps and 200991 has automotive 12v plug. I did a comparison on champion site.
