RE: Underframe Storage

I have seen some pics of the Bal spare tire carrier that also held a waste water tote and the spare tire. Something like that would work well I would think. Good luck. Bal carrier.

RE: Rec Pro RV furniture

About a year ago we ordered the double wall hugger with console from REC PRO. Was easy to bring into 5th wheel and assemble. So far it's holding up well. The only issue I have is the cup holders are two small in diameter for my favorite coffee cup. Also the chrome looking finish on top of the cup holder is peeling off. They are not the biggest of recliners but are ok for me at 6'. Good luck. Thanks Smokey. That is what we have been looking at. Are the cup holders large enough to hold a soda can in a cooler insulator? Also did you get cloth or leather? We are leaning toward the Mahogany leather.

Rec Pro RV furniture

Just curious if anyone has bought any of Rec Pro's RV furniture? We are considering purchasing either 2 recliners or a loveseat. Don't think we want the power option. What happens if the power goes out? Anyway thought I would ask here. A little bit apprehensive about buying something without trying them. Thanks all.

RE: Have You Installed Your Own Slide Topper?

Are you saying your current awning will cover your slide out? If my awning covered my slide out I don't think I would bother with a topper. I would either deploy the awning just enough to cover the Slide out or completely. No, I don't have a slide out awning currently. When I deploy my electric awning the awning arm clears the upper corner of the slide out by 1.5 inches. Not sure if I can even use a slide out awning with those close dimensions.

Prostate cancer

Hey guys, I know this is probably the wrong place to post this but since this is where I usually go and post when I do, here it is. I just wanted to encourage you guys to have your PSA score checked yearly. I had a yearly physical in August of 2020 and my PSA score came back high. Had it rechecked a month later and it was even higher. So to make a long story short I had my prostate removed Jan. 26th. Fortunately the Dr. said it looked like since we caught it early that it was confined to the prostate and they got it all. Five days since surgery and I am feeling well just sore. Only stayed 1 night in the hospital fortunately and have a great wife to take care of me at home. So guys if you haven't been checked lately, get er done!!!! I have alot more camping to do yet!!!Don't want to be slowed down by the big C.

RE: Have You Installed Your Own Slide Topper?

I have been thinking of doing this myself also. One thing though, on our door side slide when the awning is deployed I only have 1.5 inches of clearance. The main slide is 152 inches. What size should I use? Thanks.

RE: tranny temp got to 250!! yikes,, troubling questions

I agree with Bucky, it is probably a sending unit problem. How are you monitoring the temp? I use a Scan GuageII to monitor mine and it seems to run warmer than monitoring through the pan like my previous truck. I would go ahead and change the fluid and just keep an eye on it. Just got my 2003 7.3L F350 back from getting new injectors installed yesterday. Ran great on the way home. Good luck, I think you will be fine. As far as changing the fluid, I just changed mine a couple of months ago following:here If you go to Guzzle's page and look around, he has a good how to on changing the transmission fluid.

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: Your Rig

Here are a couple of pics of our new to us 2015 Coachmen Chaparral 324 TSRK. These are on the way home from picking it up. We have had it about 3 months now .https://i.imgur.com/b0mIxzbl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6jtcOhil.jpg

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.
