LED RV Awning Party Light with Mounting Channel

Has anyone mounted LED rope lights under their awning on a 5th wheel trailer? As an aftermarket product how did you power it?

RE: US 12 Lolo MT to Kooskia Id

You should be fine on that stretch. I've ridden it numerous times, usually on the motorcycle, but a semi could travel that road so you shouldn't have any trouble at all. It is a beautiful area, enjoy.

Route 160 in Colorado

Has anyone pulled a 5th wheel from Walsenburg, Colorado to Cortez? We will head from Minnesota to Sequoia NP in September of 2022. On that trip Route 160 would work well provided it doesn't have hairpin turns and severe switchbacks. Thanks.

RE: Pocket door

We have decided to cut a rectangular hole (about 6x14) in the wall of the bathroom up near the top. With the hole we'll be able to get tools and our hands in there to place screws in the channel and up into the ceiling. Once the door is repaired we'll cover up the hole with a decorative panel of some sort that will look attractive. Thanks everyone for all your help.

RE: Carrying a 500 lb motorcycle on the back of a Solitude 5er

Thanks everyone, your comments are much appreciated. I'm going to check out a small enclosed all-aluminum trailer pulled behind the 5th wheel. It does have limitations, but won't hurt the 5er.

Carrying a 500 lb motorcycle on the back of a Solitude 5er

Has anyone carried a 500 lb motorcycle on the back of a Solitude 5th wheel? Did you reinforce the receiver hitch on the trailer? Any negative pin weight consequences? Please tell me about the pros and cons of doing such a thing.

RE: Upgrade from 2500 to 3500 Question

When the trailer weight gets up around 12-13,000 lbs. it is time for a diesel IMO. Also, at that weight a DRW is so much better than SRW it is amazing and so very much more pleasant to tow.

RE: Pocket door

We've now found two screws on the floor down in the pocket area. We think these two screws were used to hold the channel to the ceiling. When the door is fully in the wall/the pocket area and we just begin to close it, the bottom of the door moves first. This is because the full weight of the door is hanging from the channel under the part of the channel where the screws fell out. So not much is holding the door up at that point. So the solution seems to be to remove the door and replace the screws that held the channel to the ceiling. The problem is that I don't think I can get my hand and arm into the pocket opening far enough to replace those screws. Do you all have some good ideas here?

Pocket door

The bathroom pocket door on our 369RL Solitude has suddenly become loose and positioned at an angle to the way it has been. DW found a 1/2 inch long screw lying on the floor nearby, but we can't find where it came from. When we pull the door out of the wall to close it now, it twists like a parallagram in the doorway opening. Once the door is half-way out, it straightens out. But the initial tug on the open door feels like the door will fall off. Can anyone help us out here. What adjustments are possible here?

RE: Tires again

We currently have Samson tires on our trailer that could be up to 7 years old. The 5er is a 2014, we bought it in 2018 so we don't know for sure how old the tires are. We have traveled about 15,000 miles with these tires. I have always kept the tires aired up to 110 lbs. Now I'm wondering if we should just put the same tires back on. The blow out did put a hole in the sidewall about the diameter of a baseball. But is it possible that these current tires are at the end of their useful life span?

Is there an I-pad APP especially made for RV application that would provide a warning for any given road as far as low bridge height, too curvy for a long trailer etc.?

RE: Tires again

We are currently in Boone, NC and will find new tires while we are here. I just called a local truck tire place and they are recommending Carlisle tires over Hercules. Do any of you have experience with Carlisle tires?

Tires again

Today, while driving on a freeway, we blew out aST235/80R16 with a G load rating. This tire was mounted on a 16,000 lb 5er. The tire brand was Samson and yes, that tire is mfg. in China. We will be purchasing 4 new tires in the next day or two. Can you recommend a better tire than the one that blew? We don't mind paying for quality, in fact we would much rather pay for quality than experience again what happened today.

Hanging pictures

We tried hanging some pictures with 3M command strips which worked for several months, but eventually the pictures fell off the wall. We think the command strip didn't work well with the textured wallpaper in the 5er. Do you all know of a better way of hanging pictures in the RV?

Wine Country north of San Francisco

Can anyone recommend some nice wineries out in the country north of San Francisco? We don't know that area at all. On this trip we'll see the giant General Sherman Sequoia tree, Yosemite NP, San Francisco and north of there some. Not sure how far we'll go north of that area yet. DW wants to see the wine country and take a tour or two.

RE: General Sherman Giant Tree

I guess we'll have to keep an eye on the weather as we near the giant tree. I do what to see the whole tree and stand in the vicinity of many similar trees etc. Due to the fires we have decided to take this trip in Sept. of 22. So we have plenty of time to plan. Thanks for the help with that.

RV campgrounds near Yosemite NP

Does anyone know of campgrounds near Yosemite, but outside of the park that have full hook ups?

RE: General Sherman Giant Tree

Thanks everyone for the many good ideas. We have as much time as we need to do this trip right and see what is there to see. I really appreciate your ideas so far. We might not make it out that way again so we'd prefer to see it all on this trip, or at least most of it. We are open to any type of camping, have a generator and can boondock, but the wife prefers RV parks. However, she has liked state parks too.

RE: 2016-2021 with Island Kitchen floor plans

We have a Grand Design Solitude 369RL with island and pantry and can get to the refrigerator with the slides in. In addition, this is the best trailer and Grand Design offers the best service we have ever had. Good luck. Hope you find a good one.

General Sherman Giant Tree

In about a month we'll be leaving MN and heading to the General Sherman giant Sequoia tree in California. Our route will travel south out of MN on I35 until we intersect I80 in Iowa where we'll head west on I80. We'll travel west to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in Colorado near Alamosa. Next we'll head west to drive through Monument Valley in Utah and head south to the Grand Canyon in AZ. The route is flexible. Please advise us on places to camp along the way, RV parks, campgrounds etc. and things to see and do. After visiting the giant tree we'll head for the wine country north of San Francisco. All of your recommendations will be carefully considered. Thank you.
