RE: Rec Pro RV furniture

Well things didn't go as planned. Only got one of the swivel recliners and ended up paying $50 for it. It will work for awhile. I believe we will end up with the Rec Pro in the end. Thanks guys.

RE: Replacing front landing gear box and motor.

Hey guys, just wanted to touch base you all. I did change out the gear box and motor and the fiver didn't fall. It turned out to be the switch was bad. Glad I did it myself as now I have a spare gear box and motor. Thanks, for all the replies. John

Replacing front landing gear box and motor.

Hey guys, got a question. I am replacing my front landing gear box and motor. The 5er is in my driveway and is raised fairly high. I have a sloping drive and I can walk under the pin. I am 5'7". My question is can I remove the motor and gear box without lowering the trailer? Will it fall if I pull those two item? I would like to do this without hooking to the truck if possible. Thanks, John.

RE: Rec Pro RV furniture

Thanks for all the replies. However, we have friends who are upgrading their rocker recliners in their 5th wheel and have graciously offered their recliners at no charge!!! Woohoo!!! Hasn't actually happened yet so we shall see. If not the RecPro dual recliners are in our future.

RE: Replacement axles

I would check with Etrailer.com. They have always been very helpful when I have used them. Good luck.

RE: Front Landing Gear

I use the a dry lube on the drop legs and the electric part has grease zerks on them so I just use what ever I have in my grease gun.

RE: 5th Wheel entry steps

We replaced our 3 step foldout steps last year with a 4 step Tork lift Glow step. Best thing I have done for our set up. Used our stimulus money. Woohoo!!!!

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.
