RE: Gray Tank Insulation

I thought AF would have done a better job. The craftsmanship you described is pretty sad. You did a great job insulating---

RE: Tongue Wt and Wt Distribution Question

Congratulations!!! I think you're among the first to actually have a rig set up correctly asking if he had it set up correctly. Enjoy the ride, and see ya out there.

RE: Tow Vehicle

I'm possibly wrong on this---the vehicle capacity includes gas??? IF so, add the weight of passengers and gas into vehicle capacity. Are the tow vehicle tires highly weight rated? Your call, but IMHO, the tow vehicle is a little light to use with this trailer. Most of us on this forum are RVers and have pretty good knowledge. For God's sake, don't listen to a salesperson telling you that "your rig will pull it." Remember that a Toyota pickup pulled the space shuttle.

RE: Keystone Outback tire wear

Welcome to the world of Keystone's 'we don't cover that.' As mentioned on here; a good spring/axle shop can fix you up. You might check the capacity of the springs---Keystone plays the numbers pretty weak and the axle could be rated for less. Not saying this might be the case, but "curbing the tires" could lead to bent axles also.

RE: Zephyr Cove Charging $75 a night!

Well, it IS Lake Tahoe. The neighbors have a copper roof on their vacation home. Having lived Reno/Tahoe for decades, we realized we couldn't afford the area any longer. $75.00 is a bit much, but consider the cost of a day at Disney. See ya out there......

RE: One Piece Fiberglass/Plastic Front Cap Protection

We had a LineX spray liner put on the lower portion of our fifth wheel. Worked great and was in a matching color. The cost was $415.00.

RE: Ram tire size

Our Firestones are just about to the wear bars at under 28,000 miles. I suspected they were short lived due to the trailer towing we've done. Thanks to all that came back to this. Time to go shopping....

Ram tire size

It's time to buy new tires for our 2016 Ram 2500. Currently, the size is 275/70/18 Firestone with a street tread. I wanted to jump up one size in width, but was told a 285 is really expensive. Anyone on here running 295/70/18 on their Ram with stock rims?

RE: Travel Trailer Shopping - Newbie

Well, when I was a young one---I spent a lot of money on campers that sat along side the house because we worked full time and didn't have spare time to play. Keep that in mind when shopping. Someone on here suggested renting a trailer for a trip or two. Very good advice. What you think will work for you might not be the case. Also brought up here was construction, tanks sizes, tow vehicle, etc. Possibly buying a slightly used unit for awhile will give you ideas about what's important to you without spending a whole lot of money. See ya out there.....................

RE: Quick fix for a Norcold...

We had an issue with a gas water heater at over 7500 feet elevation once. I fiddled around, cleaned the heater jet, pondered, drank beer---- the next morning, the thing worked just fine. Later that day, I discovered that the propane tank had changed over sometime in the last 24 hours. HMMMMM........... Whatever happened? No clue.

RE: Ram truck 426 hemi

Our 6.4 seems to be a good engine. However, the trans does lag. Wouldn't it be great if Ram could supercharge or turbo a 6.4 easily. I had the money to afford a diesel, but the past few years have proven the diesel engines to be more problems then I wanted to put up with, so a gasser ended up in the garage.

RE: Readying TT for ALASKA Trip

Our 2017 Alaska trip was a breeze. We pulled a fifth wheel and had a LineX spray (like Rhino liner) in a matching color on the lower front. The truck had Rock Tamers. I did place a piece of screening behind the grill (in front of the radiator), but didn't seem to need it. All in all, we get more damage from the road junk in North Idaho in winter then we encountered in Canada and Alaska. The comments on here are all pretty on point, be careful and enjoy the trip. Oh, when you get to the Salty Dawg in Homer, look for our dollar bill on the wall.

RE: Ram 2500 6.4 Hemi

We have pulled a 10,300 lb. fifth wheel several thousand miles, and now tow a 10,000 travel trailer with a 2016 2500 6.4... No problem at all. The miles were in the West, Canada, and Alaska. 8.5 to 9.5 mpg with a 373 rear end. Enjoy....

RE: Look for small dual axle TT, no more than 25ft

Craiglist is a great place to shop from your sofa. Once in a while, a real gem pops up.

Water hoses

Have any of you on this forum found RV water hoses that you can roll up after use? The ones we see at RV stores all seem to be the same as we have--can not roll them up when under 75 degrees. The regular garden hoses usually roll up when we're finished, but folks in the know state that we shouldn't use them for human us. I'm over 70 y/o and have slept in cribs with lead paint, stood up in the 56 Ford while moving, and drank gallons from a garden hose, but I can't use one to fill the tank (the rubber taste is character). Any ideas?

RE: Truck trailering packages

First off-congratulations on coming here before you bring out the wallet and possibly make a mistake. We're all pretty knowledgeable about RVing (just ask us). We drive a Ram 3/4 Hemi 6.4, and pull a 30 ft. 9995 lb trailer. Money well spent on the tow vehicle! Most 1/2 ton trucks just don't have the "guts" in most cases to safely get under a longer unit. They have the power, but tires, brakes, and suspension is usually light weight. It seems the majority on here are making the case for more truck, and I have to agree. One last note; don't always believe the sales person!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They're job is to move units.

RE: Polishing diamond plate

After visiting the auto store, I polished a portion of the diamond plate today. Whatever they used on the highway for ice melt actually etched the metal. I can feel the depression in the finish. Anyway, it looks better - like a 20/20 job - 20 feet away and 20 miles per hour. Thanks to all that answered.
