RE: What do you do with cat at Campgrounds

Since cats are notoriously fickle and/or stubborn, it's difficult to tell how they will react. One of our three will stay on our lanai at home all day if we let him, the other two not so much. Yet, the one travels well in the TV, and seems okay inside the FW once we stop. We never take them outside because we feel it would train them to go to the door and dash outside given the opportunity, and its hard to corral cats. We've thought of hanging an enclosure off a window so they can at least get some fresh air, but I'm still designing it in my head.

RE: parking on hill

I used to park my Class A and C, and FW trailer on a similar angle for several years; no issues.

RE: Tire Replacement Question

If doable for you, take off two at a time and take them for mounting/balancing.

RE: Navigation

I just use the Google Maps app on my cell phone. I always look at each turn photo to see if there are any impediments. Also, the Park Advisor app shows low bridges so I avoid those routes. I go to great extremes to avoid metro areas for safety and routing issues.

RE: Window fog

Inside fogging has been a problem since dual pane windows were developed.

RE: Max Payload Question

thanks guys , i already got myself a firestone ride right air kit , i wonder if upgrading the real leaf springs would also be good?...... Adding the air kit doesn't change your load rating. It merely allows you to level out the truck when you're hauling. Closest thing I've got to you, and I don't think the specs changed in 2006, is my 2005 F350 SW, short bed. At the scale, with me (210lbs) and 10gal of diesel, was 8280lbs total, and rear axle 3440lbs. Tires are 3640lbs, limiting rear axle weight to 7280lbs, leaving 3840 for the trailer, minus whatever else I put in the truck, some of which goes slightly to the front axle.

RE: Travel Restrictions Coming

Let's all hope, as the vaccines are rolled out, this scourge of humanity gets under control, and we can live our lives normally again.

RE: Removable 5th wheel hitch?

I'm not aware of any lightweight sliding hitch.

RE: East Coast Road Trip????? Pandemic?

I've checked from FL to VA for a potential trip and most CGs are open for business.

RE: SD Address, yay or nay?

Go over to the Escapees forum and investigate their mail services to SD, TX and FL residents. You need to divorce your current domicile and obtain drivers licenses, insurances, professional connections, pay taxes if any, doctors, banking, etc., in the new state. No state can hold you hostage, but you have to be a resident somewhere. The MT LLC has been around for years, but last I heard, aggressive tax states like CA, NY, MI, will try to collect if you spend more than x days in-state with your MT-registered RV.

RE: Another Ford that needs to be bagged - or a dually?

Hard to tell, but the pin seems to be on a hitch too far aft. Also, the TV has to be way overloaded for that FW.

RE: Conflicting information tow dolly

If it were me, I'd ignore Ford's guidance and securely tie down the steering wheel to prevent turning.

Wait, what? I read a novel about geostorms. We all died!

RE: inspection

I haven't seen much at all about hiring paid inspectors here or on the other two RV sites I visit. If you can be your own handyman around your house, I'd suggest you pull up one of the PDI checklists here and do your own inspection.

RE: Tow Haul Mode

I activate tow/haul when accelerating and decelerating, but I find I can deactivate it at speed on level ground with no headwind. If the trans shifts out of OD I know it's time to activate it again.

RE: Broken Leaf Springs

I know from this and other forums that spring packs fail, but I don't think it's a frequent problem. I would probably carry one spare pack and a set of shackles and bolts with me if I went to Alaska, but I don't in the lower 38.

RE: Burnt wires in power distribution panel

I found similar in the main panel and transfer switch in my old Bounder. It was also a rats nest of extra wire. I must have taken out three feet of excessive wire in bits and pieces, and it all needed tightening. Amazing there was no fire.

RE: 1/2 ton towing

I looked at the trailer specs and I think you'd be maxed out, even if you load lightly. You might want to take a look at a fifthwheel.

RE: SW Florida Campgrounds

Rambler's Rest, Venice Royal Coachman, Nokomis Riverside RV Resort, Arcadia Encore Gulfview RV Resort, Punta Gorda I've found the Park Advisor app helps locate campgrounds and you can drill down from there. It's not always up to date, however.
