RE: How long can 5th wheel stayed hooked up...

No issues in my opinion. If it makes you feel better, extend the landing legs to take the weight off the TV.

RE: Electric awning - Don't like the durned thing! Rant!

I have a Dometic 9100 electric awning. I can't say it's better than my old manual and it's so high I'd need a ladder to attach lights or a patio shade to it. Yes, I can lower one arm a bit to dump water, but I'm limited since I have a slide directly under the awning that would chafe against the awning fabric. But, I knew all that before we purchased the FW so I'm not complaining.

RE: Morryde Pinbox with Pullrite or Demco Hijacker Hitch

Okay, thanks for the replies. I was getting ready to order one of those two auto sliders and I certainly didn't want to give up the Morryde advanyage.

RE: Dometic toilet blocking in the down tube

It might just be a paper backup. I've had a similar problem twice now with the new Montana, and I've never used RV TP. Without a proper "tool" on hand, I turned off the water and found a convenient tree branch with a slight curve and stirred it around till I softened the mess, then ran a lot of water thru the toilet and it cleared. The first time I thought the pipe took a sharp bend and that was the scene of the blockage, but I think what I have is as RoyB showed. The second time I had three gurls, two women and me in the RV, and the TP just built up till it filled the downpipe. I obviously have to retrain the gurls (haha) or me keep a closer eye on it (yuck). I'm still not giving in to the RV TP "requirement" because I'm stubborn like that.

RE: I think I made a mistake.

Everyone has different reactions. I will admit I sometimes get stressed finding a good fuel stop, and recently when my 4-yr old granddaughter had to go and there was no where convenient to stop. But, I felt the same with a 36' Class A with a toad. I don't think anyone else can say what's best for you.

Morryde Pinbox with Pullrite or Demco Hijacker Hitch

For those using a Pullrite Superglide or Demco Hijacker hitch with their respective capture plate, does the capture plate immobilize the Morryde anti-chucking feature, thus rendering it useless? I've looked at the installation guides for both plates and it sure looks like I'd have to install nylon blocks that "jam" or prevent movement in the pinbox.

RE: LT 285/75R16 Michelin LTX Tires on stock GM Rims

If Michelin really requires a 7.5" wheel for that size tire, I think you've found the answer. There should be a spec on the Michigan website to help you.

RE: What do you do with the grill grease?

Paper towels and into the trash. Occasionally into the fire pit.

RE: Are all Sailin tires great?

I don't know. All I can say is I've never heard, anyplace or anytime, a single complaint about Sailun tires. Of course, it could well be possible that's because there are fewer of them on the road to complain about. Who knows?

RE: Prescription Costs

Yes, nothing has been done to control prescription prices. The high cost of medical care in general is the problem. The Aoordable Care Act did not fix nor can it fix costs.

RE: Do the people that build them ever use them?

RV designers should be forced to live in the RV and use every piece of equipment for no less than a week.

RE: Audience at the dump station

I'm not a shy dumper. Heck, I'd have probably held the little tank a bit higher than normal so the looky-loos could have seen my stuff go into the drain!

RE: Tire Blowout

I'm leaning towards you being overweight on the tires. Getting weighed would be a good idea. Load range C tires are lightweights. If you can, upgrade to 15" wheels and LR D tires if they will fit inside your wheel wells and there's no less than 3" between the tires. I don't think you can find load range E tires unless you go to 16" wheels which may be overkill for your trailer. NEVER reduce tire pressure. It's almost always recommended to use the maximum tire pressure (on the sidewall) in trailer tires. Also, if your tires are speed rated to 65mph, don't drive faster than 65 because you'll overheat them quickly.

RE: Electric brake controller needed?

Most states require trailer braking when the trailer is over 3000lbs, so yes, you'll need a controller.

RE: Ballpark cost of Brake Job on F53 Gasser

I'm estimating (on the high side) two rotors at $200 each, and two sets of pads at $150 each. $1500 sounds awfully high to me but I haven't done a brake job on an F53 since 2001 on a 1996 chassis. I don't know about the sensor(s).

RE: replace spare at same time as tires?

I don't, if I have to use the spare I will drive as short a distance as possible and slowly. This.

RE: Brakes

1/4" is plenty as long as it's even across the shoe. I recommend e-trailer.com as an excellent source for brake components. Definitely don't go to Lippert.

You're a lucky man, indeed.

RE: Layout of campgrounds

And, some of those CGs are from a time when RVs were smaller, and often have electric, water and sewer issues.

RE: Aluminum wheel blow out

I've never seen it, or heard of it happening. OTOH, a few people have posted about cracked aluminum wheels, but I think they indicated the cracks were a defect.
