RE: Any 1st time pickup TC out there to give their thoughts

I was hoping to keep the 5er as i use the TC, until we find which fits us the best and my dream of TC camping can be experienced..Ive talked about it for years and Im ready...Thank you all, for with your experiences I'll be able to show my wife that Im not crazy for wanting to camp in a smaller RV..For other reasons besides a dream!

Any 1st time pickup TC out there to give their thoughts

Ive camped in a tent since a child until back surgery had me needing a mattress, as it goes by a TT for a yr and then upgrade to a 5th wheel. After wearing that one out bought a Montana 3400L in 2011 and I enjoy camping with my wife, But when I want to goto a Nascar event or on a solo camping trip,I find that size of a RV is Too much..Now I've wanted to buy a used slide in TC to use for my solo adventures, Now for years dreamed of traveling with a TC but she has no desire to travel in anything that small, me it would be cool-I Think?? Here what Im asking has anyone with a larger RV bought a TC to use for ease of the trip or just be able to go where most cant go...I also travel out west to the Rockies every other or 3rd year for a month or 2...Explain your thought's on this the good and bad.....As for TC cost is a factor so used in the age of 2009 to 2012, watching for water damage price of 12 to 18K$....Ive got 2005 Dodge Dually with CTD,4.1gears and I modified the trans and truck to tow Heavy...Plus to pull my MC along with me would be the icing on my cake....Thanks

RE: Keeping fridge cool in high 90s temps

living in NJ and traveling a few of the area Nascar tracks your in the open field and the afternoon sun always was on my Frig side... So I ordered 2x 3" computer fans and 2x 4" computer fans..and the reflective bubble stuff for windows from camping world, I install one of the 4" fans inside the lower panel outside the RV,pushing air up..the 2nd fan pulling the air up and out the upper vent..all connected to the 12v power feed to the frig by the lower vent with a switch coming out of the lower vent to control the 2x-4"fans..then using the reflective bubble stuff made and panel that when between the upper and lower vents and attached it with small S-hooks from a hardware store....The 3" Fans I installed inside my frig and you need to get power from the back of the frig in the lower vent panel and feed the wires to the inside by way of the inside drain tube from the coils inside the frig..With a switch inside the Frig to control the 3" fans, one was pointed to the cooling coils and the other on the upper shelf pointed down to move the cool air...Taking your time about 3hrs..once done I now have Rock hard ice cream and a 40* frig Temp..On a trip out west we experienced 100* temps and frig stayed cold...the wires used can be a 18awg or even smaller for fans only draw .33amps@12v each...My wife just loves it now nothing spoils our beers are ice cold..

RE: Cleaning Question

I start on the roof of our RV waxing the front cap on my belly using my DA polisher, then onto a ladder in our PU bed, then moving the ladder on the ground and boy is it tiring work even with my machine

RE: 5th Wheel upper Shock Mount

I would have a welder come to your house a reweld the upper shock mounts and see if he could even and a tab to give it a little extra strength, just look in your phone book or google it looking for a local welder....enjoy your summer...and yes it happened to my Cedar Creek many years ago, but I welded it myself.. also for got I would replace that shock in case the shock is damaged,

RE: Rancho 9000's or Bilsteins?

Bilsteins on front, RanchoXL and have on the rear so while towing I'm able to set on setting #8 on a range of 1-9, while towing with my airbags at 30lbs and shocks at #8 I've got nice ride and control on the interstate especially going over the joints between the highway and a bridge or frost heave. On the front I'm using Bilsteins in the front...for steering stabilizer and as front shocks....I just like the control I get from firming the ride while Towing and my wife notices a big difference when she drives...

RE: Price per mile

someone you know then I would go and do it, but a Craigslist add would make me nervous to even think of doing it..
