RE: Euerka Springs AR to Branson MO

21 gets real twisty north of Berryville but it's a good road. At Blue Eye,Mo there is a really good Mexican food place . If it was me pulling my 5er I would stay on 62 to Alpena then 412 to 65. We have a small tract of land south of Berryville we have been camping at since 1969.

RE: No Spare tire correct

I have allways had a puncture kit on board but my concern is a complete failure. Been there done that twice since our 1st camper back in 79. I just can't wrap my head around no spare so may be rethinking this idea of the Boss wanting to go back to a MH. Her thing is she won't drive the dually/5er and wants to give me some relief on the driving . She can drive it but won't plus to be legal here in Tx our gvwr requires an A class DL which she won't do. Oh the things we do to keep 'em happy.

No Spare tire correct

Looking at the Mercedes Sprinter based MH's and have yet to find one with a spare tire . Is there a model with a spare included. I looked up the receiver hitch carrier and not a fan. What are you folks doing ? I know about roadside assistance plans but have had a blowout on my 5er where there was no cell service so I have a concern.

RE: Add leveling jacks

I paid just under 4500 installed in the factory shop for the 6pt hydraulic Equalizer System . That was 3yrs ago this Septemberso probably a bit more today. A lot of $ yes but for the setup ease and when I had a blowout & just raised it up, worth it to me, we had decided to hang on to this rv but if I was thinking upgrading that would be the way to go.

RE: Add leveling jacks

Thanks sayoung. I did reach out to them and got the response below. If I can't integrate into their auto-level system, I'd prefer to go electric instead of adding another hydrolic system. From their support: I have a question first, are you wanting to integrate the rear jacks and the front jacks and run them all from one control system? If so then you will have to purchase a full 4 point leveling system from us. We can’t integrate with jacks from another system. If you are good with what you have and only want to replace the rear 2 jacks and are ok with just running those off of a control system, then we do have 2 point systems that we could sell you. It maybe the travel length of your existing piston . Your or their shop can change the existing jacks and go a complete 4 or 6 pt. System. Our rv is 35 ft and I went with 6pt and glad I spent the difference. We drove from Tx to Elkhart and they installed in their shop. We r retired so it was a nice trip. I can pick the entire rv off the ground. You can raise/lower front individually and control side to side or front to back.

RE: Add leveling jacks

Call the folks at Equalizer Systems in Elkhart, Ia. They installed their 6pt hydraulic system on our rv. I bet they can add 2or 4 more jacks & a controller to make system "autolevel ". Bullfrog makes some electric levelors you could add to the frame at the back.

Extremely pet friendly

Anyone know any campgrounds in Colorado that are extremely dog friendly ? Our delima. Is our dogs are all getting very old and we seem to have become a pet nursing home. They all have to have Med's daily for various ailments so our normal pet sitter just can't deal with medicating 5 dogs

RE: Any RV transport recommendation?

Ask a friend or relative to go get it & pay the expenses. Did I understand it's both truck & rv ?

RE: Chisos Basin, Big Bend

The web site clearly states that RVs greater than 20+ feet not recommended due to grade, twists and turns on the way up to Chisos. Has anyone done it, and if so, how closely should the recommendation be followed? The description doesn't let you know how really twisty it is. I have seen a camp host get a 35 ft 5er up the mountain BUT traffic was halted and a lot of backing to make some of the worst turns.

RE: Switch to houseboat?

We were at Denton Ferry RV Parkon the White River 2nd week of June and a couple set up across the drive from us were in a cabin cruiser type boat. They just had a 3step folding ladder on the back to enter/exit and by the way they setup/closedup they camp in the boat often. First time I have seen this but may be more common along coast or Great Lakes area When I was in business had a customer had a luxury houseboat on Lake O'Pines they lived full time in tied to a marina dock. This thing was huge, house AC system, beautiful boat. They just had dock rent & electric. Marina on CoE land so they didnt pay any property or school tax on this thing either.

RE: De-coding wheel/rim stamp on my 5th wheel

I just had to replace one of my Sendell aluminum wheels and ALL of the info was stamped around the inside : date code , size , max psi, max weight, etc. May just be an aluminum thing .

RE: Insurance- Needing Commercial if Used as Office?

Gdetrailer, Any vehicle used for any commercial operation that crosses state lines are subject federal rules. I will never say everyone using their rv for a working operation is following the rules . If they have no advertising easy to get away with, but a wrap is a billboard to enforcement that your commercial. Believe what you want, wasted toooooo much time on you already.. I opologize to the Californians, the all knowing is from Pa I see.

RE: Insurance- Needing Commercial if Used as Office?

We had dinner tonight with our good friend that's a Tx commercial vehicle safety compliance auditor. She says as to the wrap, if below 26000lbs combined and you DONOT travel out of your state you are ok unless California law , But if you cross state line at any weight it's CDL & DOT numbers. Hmm, let me get this straight.. You say that you have talked to a TEXAS "commercial vehicle safety auditor" about this matter which is not taking place in Texas? Then you say that the TX auditor says it is OK as long as they stay inside CA? That is "hearsay".. The TX auditor has no connection or jurisdiction in CA and therefore is not the final "Authority" on this matter. Once again, this thread IS an example as to why the OP NEEDS to consult their LOCAL DMV Authorities to get the REAL scoop instead of the remote armchair ones. The TX auditor could be correct about crossing state lines, however, once again, the OP NEEDS to consult with their proper Authorities in order to make sure they have ALL of the legal possibilities covered. I wish the OP good luck to your adventure. I will type real slow this time so Californians Might understand. If you CROSS any state line with commercial signage on the rv you are now subject to FEDERAL commercial rules. DoT number & CDL will be required. If he stays in Kali & stays under 26000 gvwr he is ok unless kalifornicate has rules on this that differ greatly from most states.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash Weathershield aaplication

I use Blue Beacon washes and always get the Rain-X rinse. Makes the trailer look like it has been waxed. X2

RE: Insurance- Needing Commercial if Used as Office?

I would think any commercial underwriter could get you business liability/comp. I am thinking your gonna have way more problems with possible DOT, Drivers License needed in your state, having to now stop at weigh stations, etc , , but I don't know just thinking as a former business owner.

RE: Texas?!? I'm shocked.

My two cargo trailers are no longer required to get inspections in Texas. Don't know about RV's though. Just change 2 years ago I think. My buddy over at TxDPS says the boat industries lobbiests got the inspection raised to 7700lbs gvwr minimum before inspection needed.
