RE: Dry camping with furnace on

You need two or more typical 12v hybrid batts, or a couple of 6v golf cart batts to keep your furnace running longer than 8 hours.

RE: Onan Gen Removal

My Onan just dropped out the bottom. I used a floor jack under it, and had raised that side of the RV a bit.

RE: Windows 10 - Anniversary Edition?

The update changed my log in and I can't use my pin, and have to go thru a PITA process to change it back. Windows appears, by design, to make my life more difficult.

RE: Looking at 2 fifth wheels ?

I bought a 2014 Wildcat 327CK and traded it in one year later. My sense is that Jayco makes a better product, but having never owned one my opinion means nothing. We did look at them before buying the Montana

RE: Key West

Get off 95 as soon as you can in FL by taking the toll road to avoid Miami.

RE: Need 5th wheel hitch advice

I have a 6-1/2' bed and corner cutouts on the FW and I still need a slider. Pullrite and Demco both make good auto sliders, and the Demco Is height adjustable.

RE: Selling unneeded parts

If you have stuff like hitches, supplental braking and the like, hitchtrader.com provides a good market.

RE: So, we had our first flat, and second, yesterday

If you have space to go bigger, and your wheel width is adequate for the new that's what I recommend.

RE: Looking for Opinions on Keystone Montana for Full Timing

Well, Keystone states "4 season living," and ours is certainly better than any previous RV we've owned, but I seriously doubt deep-freeze winters would be very comfortable. Nothing in the Keystone literature says FT invalidates your warranty. It has no problem cooling in near 100 degree and high humidity conditions in FL. The front LR stays cool. Take a look at the lack of storage if you're considering FT. We knew up front but we pack fairly light and it hasn't been a problem although I don't consider us true full-timers. There are higher quality makes for FT, but you'll pay a high price for one.

RE: Video Hurricane Hermine: We "rode" out the storm...

Winds forecast over 50Mph = get out of the trailer and go to a safer location, or take the trailer to a safer location.

Lazy Days FL - Good Service Report

After hearing LD is good with selling but forgets you when you get service, I have a good report to share. Scheduled the Montana for a handful of warranty work. Told them I would be staying for the duration of the repairs but changed my mind since we live relatively close by. Checked in by service writer Samantha and the FW was in the bay two hours later. Some things could not be repaired in one day. RV tech Steve thoroughly explained what he needed to do, and one repair part had to be ordered. The part didn't arrive till the second week but I don't think that was LD's fault. The FW will have to go back to replace the cracked Corian counter because it, by itself, is a 10hr job and the countertop must be ordered. Overall, I give LD an A- so I'm very pleased. They could have gotten an A if they had given me a couple of calls to let me know the repair status rather than me having to call them. Regardless, I did NOT experience what others have complained about WRT being forgotten after the sale

RE: New truck, trailer height..

You look closer to perfect than most setups I've seen, including my own.

RE: Busted Leaf Spring

Now, I'm going to make a rather broad statement here based on mostly anecdotal evidence. The guy who replaced my boat trailer springs told me not to expect to get more than three years out of the new pair in a salt water environment as they were Chinese steel, and if I opted for American steel, he could get springs from another source and they would last much longer but at much greater cost, and with a shipping delay. He went on to say we ship our steel scrap to the Chinese and they returned to us steel products that are not mfgrd. to American standards. I've researched this a bit and I suspect he told the truth. So, does anyone here think RV mfgrs. are using Chinese or American steel on our RVs?

RE: Possible hub failure

If it's one of the stamped pound in dust caps, sometimes they don't like to be replaced and you have to use a new one. Have you checked to make sure there is no wear on the axle, castle nut and inside of the dust cap that would indicate a hard part pushing the dust cap off? This.

RE: inspection

Buyer pays for inspection, similar to buying a house or boat.

RE: Getting New Tires -- Jack Up Points For Installers To Use?

I can't recall ever seeing a tire shop jack anywhere other than under the axle u-bolts. I've never done any damage or had a mishap doing the same.

RE: Front receiver

I've never seen the type you've described. I assume you know there is probably a standard hitch receiver available for your truck?

RE: RV Quality

If they built higher quality units they'd probably price many of us out of the market.
