RE: gas shortages along Interstates

At least two of em have managed to set their vehicles on fire. (One while fleeing LEOs on a stolen tag).

RE: Replacement axles

Dexter axles have a serial number stamped (or on a tag) in the center-rear of the axle. The number is the same for all (2 or 3) axles in a set. Dexter customer service can take that number and give you the exact specifications of the original axle/spring set and/or determine what upgrades will fit your installation. Their customer service is, by the way, excellent. A

For those suffering from early Summer heat or late Spring storms: It is snowing tonight in the Upper Basin at Yellowstone!

RE: Best Cell Phone App

Yeah, but you and I are the Grumpy-Old-Men in residence. A

RE: Best Cell Phone App

I am sure I'll catch a bunch of flak over this, but based on 15 years of pulling a fiver and having used everything from a Garmin hand-held to a Rand-McNaly RVND (backed up with cell phones and/or laptops): 99.75 percent of the time a stand-alone navigation specific device with lifetime updates is more accurate and faster than any app or software. If it can see the sky it works! A PS - Always carry a fairly recent print copy of the Trucker's Road Atlas.

RE: What do you use for local travel once camped up?

As soon as you open the door they float like rocks!

It is a Ford!

RE: Best time to buy new?

I agree with "right after school starts" but remember that NEW loses half its price (not value to you, but resale price) in the first 15 months. Gently used??

RE: no lights

I don't like to sound too negative, but from your posts I get a feeling that you are in way over your head. A friend with automotive electrical experience (or a mobile RV tech) needs to "cold trace" your wiring harness. A wrong connection usually just annoying, but it CAN be dangerous to the batteries and other electronics in both the trailer and the truck. A degree of caution is a good idea. A

RE: Navigation

In 8 years we have never had a failure with Rand-McNally's RVND (Recreational Vehicle Navigation Device) Although it has missed a couple of low clearances. I do also carry the most recent edition of The R-M spiral bound Trucker's Road Atlas.

RE: surge protector and water filters

Water filtering is a personal choice. We do on the theory that it can't hurt. but only once or twice in 12 years have we run into really bad water. Death Valley, anyone? We carry 5 or 6 gallon jugs of good, city, water to use for cooking and drinking if necessary and refill them whenever we are at a big-city source. Anything that meets EPA public water source guidelines is as good as you will get through a filter short of RO. A pressure regulator is required. Watts makes good ones that are adjustable. I feel that an EMS from Progressive is a necessary investment. Mine has kicked out due to low voltage several times (particularly in Canada) and once when the guy next to me backed over my pedestal and ripped the ground side loose.

RE: Looking for New Fifth Wheel with Bigger Windows

Keep in mind that a certain amount of "non-window" wall area is necessary to provide structural rigidity to the box. Engineer talk for "there are limits".

RE: Ghost Towns

For a curated town we agree with Bannock or Bodie. The road back into Bodie can be badly washboarded depending on weather and whether the County has run a grader over it recently. For a truly abandoned town try Anamas Forks, above Silverton, CO. With your "C" you won't be able to go on up Mastadon Gulch to the mine camps, but AF itself is neat. Check out the San Francisco newspapers glued to the inside of the walls in the "bay window" house as insulation. Caution! The floor is rotten near the door. There are two seasons in that part of Cololrado, Winter and August.

FLY!! Sorry, couldn't resist.

RE: Extended warranty

Put the money in an interest bearing account (online??) and plan to add $20 per month. You will be ready with a lot less hassel than any of the EW companies give you. Remember: it is a business. They are in it to take in more cash than they have to put out.

RE: DRV height

You can gain about two inches by deflating tires on the trailer. Pump them back up after you are under the header.

RE: Insurance on a 2021 Fifth Wheel

The phone agents for Good Sam's RV Insurance (which is really General American) are very well versed in what coverages you need depending on what you have and how you use it. They also have a feature that lets you put the trailer in "storage" for months when you are not on the road. Due to medical issues and then COVID, my fiver had been in storage for almost two years now at a significantly reduced cost.
