RE: New Tire Question

I can't say I noticed any difference in towing performance.

RE: New Tire Question

I have run the Cooper Discoverer AT3 and I'm currently running the Michelin Defender LTX MS. Both were/are of the E rated variety. I have no complaints about the Coopers, they timed out before the tread was worn too far. I replaced them with the Michelin's about 4K miles ago and the biggest difference has been a noticeably smoother ride and less road noise with the Michelin's. Some of that can be expected since the Michelin's have a less aggressive tread, however it's quite a bit better. The Coopers were average in the snow and ice here, but after the wint'ry mix we got here earlier today, the Michelin's will get there chance soon enough.

RE: Rear Bumper Storage - how bad is it?

These Lippert under chassis storage boxes cost a pretty penny, but they offer a solution other than the rear bumper.

RE: Buying a new 25ft, 4 season TT - Are these high quality?

Like mine, Shadow Cruiser is a Heartland product. I noticed many similarities in the VR tour of this model to my TT. I'd say overall it's about average for quality. If it’s average build quality for the price, that’s not too bad at all. Because the price is pretty decent. Is there anything on yours that was not up to par that you changed? Things I should take into account? I agree the price for the features and level of quality is fair. So far we are happy with the purchase. As with a lot of RVs the mattress was the first thing to go. Otherwise I've added 400w of solar, fantastic fan and a clear bathroom skylight in place of the smoked one. Besides the solar the additions are pretty minor personal things. I will add that I called Heartland technical support and a human answered my call and supplied me with an answer on the spot. Not unique to Heartland, but it was a nice first impression.

RE: 20' KeyStone Hideout Mach15 dripping inside...

For what it’s worth my TT didn’t come with a ladder either. I had heard the theory it meant my roof couldn’t be walked on. I called Heartland directly and asked about walking on my roof. The tech replied it was no problem. He also offered there is no such thing as a “no walk on roof.” If there were, no RVs would have AC or vents up top. Also roofs needed to be walked on to perform preventative maintenance. Some RVs just don’t come with ladders. After the phone call I proceeded to install 400W of solar, a fantastic fan and a skylight while walking on my roof.

RE: Altitude and appiances.

Our driveway starts off at 6500 feet and most our destinations go up from there. Never had an LP appliance problem across several campers. I've even used the AC with my Honda 2200 converted to propane without issue.

RE: Some questions on using solar.

We boondock about 99% of the time. Whether short or long trips we tend to stay in forest service, BLM or state parks with little to no amenities. Because of this, solar is our go to source for power in our rig. In those instances where A/C is required I run the Honda 2200 as needed. I’m on my third solar install and chose a lithium battery this time for its deeper reserve and zero service requirements. With its longer life expectancy the initial higher cost should level out over time. We’ll see how it goes. Here’s an excellent site to get smart on solar with in-depth assessments on practical RV installs, products and appropriate sizing for just about any need.

RE: Roof Replacement

I would say it has less to do with the holes in the roof (unavoidable), and more to do with the proper maintenance and sealing of said holes.

RE: Murphy bed pros/cons?

We looked at a Keystone Passport SL 221BH today just for S&G and it had the murphy bed design up front. Just curious as to people's thoughts that have or had them - how do/did you like it, how does/did it work for you, do/did you leave it down and not use the couch, etc. In this model it seems like it could be down and get the slide in, but we couldn't tell for sure, but that could be a factor as well. We're not the kind of family that stays in the trailer 24/7 and needs the couch to stare at a tv. In this particular model it seems like with the bed down it would restrict access to the rest of the trailer or at least make it tight, so in essence one would HAVE to put it up and down each day - not my idea of a good time. How does the mattress hold up? Can it be replaced by a foam mattress type or because it bends, that's not possible? Does it mess up one's bedding where that needs to be removed daily? Just trying to get an idea. Typically I've found that the murphy bed design keeps the trailer a touch shorter which I really like, but at what expense? Ours has a similar design with a Murphy bed. The mattress that came with it was hot garbage and I replaced it immediately. The bed/sofa can be used with the slide in, but we haven’t had to do that yet. When looking for a compact design, a Murphy bed was a good solution in a small space that gave a seating option beyond the dinette. We also pretty much are in the camper just long enough to sleep, eat, shower and leave but it’s nice to have something comfy for rainy days. The bed is put away as soon as we’re up and moving. It literally takes no time at all. I would estimate that when I fold the bed back down and adjust the sheets, it takes about two minutes to situate everything. If needed we could leave the bed down since it has the same foot print as the sofa and doesn’t take up any extra floor space.

RE: Cool Mods Search

Hey thanks for the reply. I guess since it's a sub board it doesn't show up in normal forum searches.
