RE: 2nd AC size

Both our prior 40 ft. 5th wheel and our current 27 ft. TT have/had dual ACs. In both, the front or bedroom AC is/was 13.5k. If you're having it added, you could go with 15k but probably overkill for the space. Quieter? Because the space is smaller and it is right over your head, I would say not really.

RE: i-5 san diego thru LA rest stops?

There's a rest area northbound I5 in between Oceanside (north San Diego) and San Clemente. Next one I believe isn't until the Grape Vine as you drop down into the central valley. Once you get out of the LA area though, lot's of truck stops with plenty of space to take a break.

RE: Anyone use a water meter?

I have something like this. https://www.amazon.com/Rainwave-RW-9FM-Digital-Water-Meter/dp/B007NHS9M4/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3TE0GGYK91RP4&dchild=1&keywords=garden+hose+water+flow+meter&qid=1616440300&sprefix=garden+hose+water+flo%2Caps%2C322&sr=8-5

RE: Where to stay near Johnson City TX?

You don't mention when you will be in the area so be forewarned, the Fredericksburg area can be very busy especially on weekends. Lot's of places to camp, the question will be can you get a reservation when you want. I will throw out Pedernales State Park as an option near Johnson City. Again, if you can get a reservation.

RE: Firman Generator

I purchased a Firman gen through Costco not to long ago as well. While reading through the reviews, someone had commented they had done exactly that and the gen fired up 8 months later without any issues. My only concern would if there was a problem. I'd hate to find out when I really need the gen.

RE: Direct TV Challenge

HDMI port on a laptop is HDMI out only. Try looking into a HDMI video capture device that plugs into USB. You can then view the video using an app that works with the video capture device. Just a thought.

RE: Can this weight be right?!?!

That's about what my 2011 - F450 weighs so I would say it isn't unrealistic.

RE: Portable Satellite Cable Storage..ideas??

I've used this one for years for my dish cable. No problems at all. https://www.homedepot.com/p/HDX-150-ft-16-3-Extension-Cord-Storage-Reel-HD-130PDQ/205038360 https://images.homedepot-static.com/productImages/442858a0-b0ba-4809-83f0-d1ec7669a2f2/svn/hdx-extension-cord-reels-hd-130pdq-a0_145.jpg X2

RE: Texas Hwy. 21 from San Marcos to Sommerville

Thanks for all the feedback. Just got back last night. No issues. TX21 was mostly two lanes each way except for occasional areas where it would drop down to one lane for a short distance. I would not hesitate doing it again.

Texas Hwy. 21 from San Marcos to Sommerville

Will be taking our first trip out to Lake Sommerville this weekend towing a 27ft. TT. Maps say to take Hwy. 21 but I'm not familiar with it. How's it for towing? Any other suggestions? I'm starting out in New Braunfels. Thanks in advance.

RE: 5th week hitches

You will also want to make sure your hitch is rated high enough to accommodate the weight of you friends 5th wheel.

RE: Material I need to move Travel Trailer

I see that you live in El Cajon. Drop by Rick's RV Center on Main Street and talk to them about your situation. Good people there that should be able to help. They set me up with my first fifth wheel hitch way back when I still used to live in the area. Good luck.

RE: Laura evacuation.

Most counties in the impacted areas ordered mandatory evacuations starting yesterday morning. Last night on the news they said if you hadn't left already, it's probably too late. Safe travels to those on the road.

RE: Accepting our fate....perhaps a TH after all

Check out Heartland Fuel or Cruiser Strykers. Both start at 23ft. and go up from there. King size beds in front and queen size beds in the back if equipped with the Happi-Jac beds. As mentioned, towing with a 150 might be challenging as TH's without toys in the back an be very tongue heavy.

RE: Toyhauler bumper pull for polaris ranger

Heartland Fuel/Cruiser Stryker both start at about 23 feet and go up from there. Both claim to be able to accommodate 4 seater SxSs. We have the Stryker 2313 and haul a RZR 800 in it easily.

RE: Who do you use for Insurance?

Kind of depends on where you're located. Had Progressive on my prior FW while living in California but switched to Texas Farm Bureau when we moved to Texas. I've read that there are some who disable their insurance while in storage but I don't know what companies allow that. Being financed, I would think the bank would want it insured 100% of the time just in case it gets broken into or something worse. Good luck in your search.
