RE: Looking at 2013 Cougar 28sgs 5th wheel

Hi Duke-44, We have had good luck with the Cougar line (we have two). A few common complaints which I addressed with the dealer before delivery and had no problem once I brought it back for warranty. But again we have a great dealer. i)front cap fading (repaired 100% warranty) ii) on board electronic panel (100% warranty) Where I would be cautious is the lite vs. standard model, to get to the lite (1500 series units) you need to be prepared to sacrifice something. Check the wall thickness, lite tend to be thinner = less insulation hotter in the summer, colder in the fall. Some have complained that the front cap bed models get very hot for sleeping at night. Check for framing (this is difficult, look at the specs) but lite models tend to have less framing, we had an awning tear out because it was bolted only in the wall skin, not anchored in a stud. Often framing is around windows, door and spread far apart along the length of the box. Check interior cupboards, lite models tend to have shallow cupboards sometimes less are installed again because of the structural design. Check the size of your basement and access to it. Although most are still pass-through, many are restricted in height. Good news/Bad news lite models often are lower profile to the ground (smaller tire size etc.) however this sometimes is an issue when trying to combine with a late model truck which tends to be higher profile. So bottom line is "it depends" on what you want to do. Weekend vs. long distance traveling; cost/benefit; tow vehicle; long term plans etc. Good luck, whatever you purchase it will likely be your pride and joy. GPG from Canada EH!

RE: Raising my 5th wheel

If you are looking for a few inches only, you may want to consider LIPPERT Correct Trackā„¢ Suspension Alignment Kit; SKU: CORRECT-TRACK , Starting At $260.95 it is a shackle kit originally designed to help align axles, but does give you 2" lift by default. GPG52

RE: AC easy start.

Sorry, I'm a layman especially when it comes to electricity. QUESTION: Would it not be just as easy to start up as follows 1- turn your AC Temp knob all the way to a point where the ambient temperature would not trigger the AC to run. i.e. if the ambient temperature was 70 then turn the AC to 80 degrees then 2- start your AC fan only... wait a few minutes with the fan only running 3- then turn your temperature knob down until the AC kicks in. This way you have a two stage draw on the generator, would that work???? GPG

RE: Anyone have Keystone cougar 30RLS?

We love our Cougar(s), I consider them mid line, not sure they would stand the rigours of full timing but certainly meets our needs. We did some research before purchasing, some issues were: front cap fading and on board electronic mother board, so I addressed these with the dealer before taking possession. Net result, as expected both did fail, but dealer was awesome and no hassle completed the repairs under other real issues. PS: like grand children yours is always the best... so I expect same bias applies to everyone else rigs.

RE: FIC entry lock problems

Thank you to all our RV enthusiast who responded. Special thank you to "ME AGAIN" who suggested "Maybe the latch is just under pressure on the striking plate on the door jam." Also found a U-Tube posting who also had the same explanation... in his case his dealer was also stumped. PROBLEM: As noted above, "... the latch is just under pressure on the striking plate on the door jam" RESOLUTION: Put inward pressure on the door beside the door handle, this releases the latch pressure on the striker plate and allows the handle move freely. Counter intuitive in that your asked to push the door inward before being able to open it outward. Many thanks from CANADA !!!! GPG52!!

RE: Anyone have a 2018 Keystone Cougar 29 series 5er?

Sorry I do not have the exact measurements but... We have a 2014 Ford F250, Heavy Duty, Snow plow package and new BF Goodrich AT snow tires... these specs tends to raise the truck box height. We tow two separate i) Cougar 2014, 327 RES and a ii) Cougar 2005, 285 EFS. We had two separate dealers check our measurement and after a slight pin box extension adjustment (raised it by two adjustment holes) on the 285 EFS we determined that we were only 1/4 inch nose high. Not enough to warrant a lift kit. We also weight the trailer with only 86 pounds difference between front and rear axle. I have also noticed that a few late model Cougars are now coming out with the Lippert axle alignments kits as factory standard equipment. These kits tend to raise the trailer uP to 2 inch. So to answer to your question, DEPENDS... only way to find out is to do a physical comparison.
