RE: Collapsible ladder?

I have a 10.5 Ft collapsible ladder for our 5th wheel. I would recommend the 12.5 ft or taller.

RE: New 5th wheel hitch.

This is not a which hitch is the best question. I've got a 16K Husky slider hitch that I've been using for 12 years. Since I keep my truck in the garage, it still looks pretty good, but it's obviously aging (like me). I'm wondering what the life span on these hitches are? I really can't find any points on the hitch to service. Even though I have a short bed Dodge truck, I have never once needed to engage the slider, but I've had to put up with the slop associated with it. If I bought a new hitch I'd probably go with a B&W. So I guess the question is "how long should one go without updating a hitch" ? I had a Reese slider that was about 10 years old. It too was sloppy and noisy. This spring I bought a 4 year old B&W Patriot for $300 and sold the Reese for $160. So for $140 I got a solid hitch. I am definitely a B&W convert now. The B&W is solid and quiet. Best move I have made in a while. Good luck.

Slide toppers

I have a question for those of you who might have slide toppers. On our main slide we only have 2.5 inches between the slide out flange and the arm of the awning when deploying the awning. Am I going to be able to get a slide topper to work on this slide out? I really want to add the slide toppers as I don't enjoy climbing on the roof to sweep the slides off. Thanks in advance.

RE: Lippert screen door opener to Dexter screen door UPDATE

Well I got my door mod done. It really wasn't all that difficult. Hardest part was finding something to extend the post that actually engages the screen door opener, Ended up using part of a ink pen that I had laying around. I should have placed some tape over the Plexiglas as I got a few scratches on it from the table saw. Here are a couple of pics. https://i.imgur.com/XZsgXYBl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/qPvut1Ul.jpg

RE: Lippert screen door opener to Dexter screen door UPDATE

Yes, the round sliding thingy!!! I bought the lippert one and it is to small for my door. I am going to try to adapt it to my door. I did find some similar posts on the Forest River forums. I will let you know how it works out. Thanks.

Lippert screen door opener to Dexter screen door UPDATE

Hey guys, I have been searching for anyone who might have done this mod. I bought one of the plastic sliding Lippert screen door openers. I want to adapt this to my Dexter screen door. I seem to remember someone talking about doing this in the past. I have searched and can't find anything about it. Maybe I am remembering wrong or just using the wrong search term. Wouldn't be the first time. Thanks, John

RE: Coachmen Chaparral 5th Wheels

We are on our 2nd fifth wheel, third Coachmen. We belong to the Coachmen Owners Association. All ours have been used and for the most part they have been good. Have many friends who have bought new and none of them have had any major problems. They have pretty good owner factory support with a factory sponsored rally each year. But they aren't any better or any worse than any other manufacturer. I whole heartedly recommend them.

RE: Roof Damage - Need Repair

Search Ebay for your Eternabond tape. Don't mess with the Flexseal. The Eternabond tape in my opinion is the best there is. If you have insurance you might consider filing a claim. I would bet they would replace the whole roof. Good luck.

Home made 50 amp power cord.

I have been looking to make my own 15-20 foot power cord. My 5th wheel uses a Marinco twist and lock. I haven't been able to find any right angle Male plugs. Plenty of the straight on plugs. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Salvage title???? update with pics

We went camping last weekend. Friday afternoon while driving to the campground, drove through a little storm. Only lasted a couple of miles. But the headwinds were ferocious. Anyway, insurance guy came out today and looks like they are going to total it. Repair estimate was $9700+. I know that exceeds the value of the trailer. I do have a couple of questions though. Has anyone bought a salvage title trailer? We are going to look at a replacement trailer tomorrow. The guy said it had a salvage title because of a theft. By looking at the pictures online, you can tell that the furniture in the unit is not original. Other than that the trailer looks awesome. And it is $6-7000 below retail. Can a trailer with a salvage title be insured? https://i.imgur.com/qTmXStkl.jpg Here is the new trailer. https://i.imgur.com/uTBGevxl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/cyyjR6nl.jpg And this is what I aquired today. Am I now in the club??? LOL https://i.imgur.com/wJ9ITS5l.jpg
