RE: Texas Boys! Last Call To Winterize!!!!!!!

At 6am it is 22 here in Gilmer. Heck, my peach trees were starting to make buds. Yesterday I did go out to the farm & get the 5er ready. Drained & blew out water lines, drained water heater, antifreeze in traps,plug up all my heat tapes on outside faucets, hookup the extra propane bottles, & set heat at 55 ..

RE: 5th wheel purchase advise - Solitude or Jayco

We've had our Jayco Eagle for 10 years now and nearly trouble free. To me it's boils down to the dealer I think will give the best service. My buddy bought a GD about 2 years ago & had lots of problems the dealer should have fixed before saying it was ready to be picked up. Took forever to get all resolved. My dealer had our 5er ready to go & the one issue we had later with a slide motor was resolved in a week. On the Jayco , Northpoints are really close to thier top of line and Pinnacles are the #1.. our Eagle is middle line. But still nice.

RE: hydraulics in cold weather

"What would you do in a state park?" Clean what I could and throw it in a dumpster then kick gravel over it. What do you do every place your auto drips fluids on the ground? You can't make this **** up ! My friend owns a sawmill/treating plant and during one state environmental inspection the lady inspector fined him because she found a millwright replacing a bad hydraulic hose that had ruptured and fluid was on the ground where he was working. She then tells him he could better control the dust on his plants dirt drives by spraying oil. The environment folks can be abserd

RE: Generators: Cummins 4500 vs Westinghouse vs. ?????

Ive had a 4000 Champion open frame for 10 years now. I use it pretty often and it's never failed to start. Yes it's heavy & loud as it's not one of these new enclosed Inverter types . Just saying my Champion experience has been really great. Our "genny" needs are changing so I'm probably going with 2 duel fuel Inverter Champions as soon as I solve my golf car towing issue.

RE: Who is using swivel wheel/Idaho Tote type carriers ?

If you are looking at tame riding, why not an inexpensive chinese unit. a small trike maybe? Or if a bicycle styled unit would work electric fat wheel trike these are made for off road or sand usage and should be light enough to still go in the truck bed, or on a carrier either on the truck front or the 5er rear. She can't do the pedaling required of the trikes. Good idea tho It =is= electric. Lyle Per thier literature the motor only " assists " your pedalling

RE: Who is using swivel wheel/Idaho Tote type carriers ?

What size utility trailers are you dbl tow folks using ? DWs golf car will go on a 5/10 but if I go this route would like a bit bigger such as 6/12 ( gotta measure my total length now to be sure how long can I go ). Also does the 2nd trailer track behind the 5er or to the inside during a turn ?

RE: Who is using swivel wheel/Idaho Tote type carriers ?

I pulled a Smart Trailer for a few years with two motorcycles on it. It's a swivel-wheel type trailer and worked great. You had to watch your tail swing, but the fact that you can back up with no problems is worth it. FWIW I pulled through and stayed in several of those red states with no issues. Never even rated a second look. But of course YMMV. I actually just found a used one over in Louisiana but he wants more than new one but also found a place just south of DFW that sales & installs the Cruiserlift brand.

RE: Who is using swivel wheel/Idaho Tote type carriers ?

Would towing a pickup with a scooter of some sort on its back behind a class a motorhome be a consideration? I absolutely have no desire to go back to a MH. We've had 2 and I just don't like haveing one. DW just needs something that is more " off road " than her mobility scooter plus She has a lifted golf cart for our farm now. The scooter doesn't do well at our Arkansas hideaway or on the Tx beaches. Looking more like the small trailer is easiest right now. There is a guy in our town that builds a hitch that replaces the entire thin bumper & ties it back into the frame. Another route is I can rent a UTV from United in Rogers Ar & they deliver . Golf cart rental on the coast is a little pricey but maybe worth it instead of all this towing complications.

Who is using swivel wheel/Idaho Tote type carriers ?

I'm in a delima on how to safely haul a golf cart/UTV . I have been looking at the swivel wheel trailers , using a 2nd trailer ( double tow ), or on the extreme side just throwing in the towel & getting a toy hauler or TT with cart in pickup bed. It's not any of the above I want to do but DW's mobility getting really bad. Looked at all-terrainn scooters but even broken down for transport I just can't pickup one of the parts ( 180+-). So my question is what are the folks in my situation doing ?

RE: Replacement keys

I replaced the door lock with a keypad from RVLock and replaced all the storage locks to the round key style.

RE: Work-anywhere towing assistance?

Let me add one important point about road side asst/emergency services & your cell phone. There are still lots of areas that have ZERO cell service no matter what provider you use. We have been in such a place with a blowout on the 5er but I can still change one but I'm 72 & see the day will be really tough !

RE: Jacked your to house batteries

As many rv forums as I visit, never ever seen " jackery " used in a conversation. Sounds like what my Aussie friend might call a bumper jack. All of us unknowing beg forgiveness

RE: Garmin gps / used with good Sam trip planner

I also can't get the trip planner to pair a trip to my 760. GS acts like it's as easy as falling off a log to work with a Garmin
