RE: Can ordered MH cost more upon delivery?

Whatever is stated in the signed contract is controlling. Additionally, the deposit should be linked or specified in the contract terms. The dealership doesn't get to keep your deposit if it can't comply with the contract terms. The dealership doesn't get to charge you more unilaterally if it's costs are higher. Of course, you may have to, gasp, get a lawyer involved.

RE: Generator and Ethanol

If all you can get is ethanol laced fuel, you're stuck with it. If you have a shutoff valve between the tank and genset carb, it's best to shut it off and let the genset use up the fuel on the carb. I use that approach with all small engines when possible. If there's no shutoff, next best thing is to use Stabil or Seafoam in any fuel that sits for extended periods, to avoid potential phase-separation.

RE: Looking for opinions, good or bad, on Forest River Wildcats

Ours has officially reached POC (piece of crap) status.

AV Ducting Condensation Problem

Had this new (12/2014) Wildcat 327CK in for warranty work in 4/2015 for multiple issues including no AC airflow to the front BR. The dealer service rep told me the ceiling ducting between the one AC and the BR was "messed up." FR's solution was to install a second AC in the front BR.  We've used the RV for the past week and a half. I noticed a lot of condensation on the bathroom ceiling below the ducting going to the BR. We have not used the BR air during this period. Now, the condensation shows on the ceiling over a five foot length, right below the ducting path to the BR. Since the ducting passes over the wall between the kitchen cabinets and the bathroom, I am of the opinion it will always be wet in that area when running the AC, potentially causing water damage to the wall and ceiling.  We're very disappointed overall with this RV, anyway, and ready to go to war with FR over this obviously defective/damaged ceiling ducting. Since the ducting is integral to the roof assembly I'm envisioning a real fix would involve removing the roof.  I suppose I'm looking for opinions for potential damage and also validation of my thoughts on repair, and I don't want to overact, either. Thank you.

RE: Story about Goodyear Motorhome Tire Failure.

Big company, lots of lawyers, playing games with discovery, yes. Problem with tires is they can be damaged by contributory negligence, like failing to check tire pressure before crossing a hot desert.

RE: setting out landing gear while still hooked up to truck

I too agree with rusty.

RE: 89 tioga arrow ford exhaust leak

Best bet is a Banks (or similar) header system. Putting stock manifolds on guarantees the same problem returning.

RE: Shore power cord stuck in the compartment.

When mine was tangled and stuck, I just kept twisting and pulling, one direction, and another. I could have broken the seal around inlet, after removing the screws, but I got it without, just took a while. I then took it all the way out, laid it in the sun until warm. I coated it with 303 protectant, put it back in by coiling it into hole. No problem since. Jerry This.

RE: 1/2 ton pickup + 6000 lb TT on 5000 mi western trip

An F150 with a 5.0 probably has less than a 3.73 axle so you may be at the top end of the truck's ability to pull in the mountains. I'm not the weight police having towed an 8,400lb FW for a few years with an '04 F150, 5.4, 3.73 axle, but I never tried the mountains. Just be very careful and use your gears accordingly.

RE: Tire Pressure

If your rear axle weight is correct, you're over 26,000lb on a 22,000lb chassis. Are you carrying a smart car in a rear storage bin? Think you need to re-weigh to confirm then start to drive with empty tanks and maybe leave DW at home LOL.

Yellow Lynx Blocks work for me.

RE: Dropped 5er with Pullrite SuperGlide?

I did, once. Wife said "I don't think it latched." I should have listened!

RE: Waving

In my experience boaters and motorcyclists wave; most RV'ers don't.

RE: Selling Trailer with Expired Tag

You should remove your tag and the buyer should take care of his own tag, temporary or other.

RE: Forest River Sunseeker 3010DS Workmanship

Our 2014 FR FW is not well made, either. We also had an AC problem, and the dealer service told us the ducting in the ceiling was "messed up." FR'S solution was to install a 2nd AC. We can now cool the RV but that doesn't excuse the error(s).

RE: difference in forest river 5th wheels?

There is a difference between a Wildcat and a Cedar Creek. They're built in different factories, but I don't know about the others.

RE: 2WD vs 4WD tow vehicle

I thought it was okay to have a 2wd to pull a FW, until I need to get out of a turning jam one time. I was glad I had 4wd.

RE: Do you compensate for slides-outs when leveling first?

Whatever the mfgr. sez. If they don't say, I recommend getting level first then operate the slides.
