RE: Surge Guard Overdose

Perhaps the one installed isn't an EMS. If it's not, then you need an EMS.

RE: We camped without George for the first time.

We had our solar system installed on March 9th this year while in Quartzsite. That morning was the last time we ran our Champion generator (except to run the gas out once we got home). We've brought it along since "just in case" but the real test will be next week when we go to the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in the Wisconsin north woods. JK

RE: Pin Box with Air

I've had the AirRide pinbox for almost a year now leave it inflated all the time. I've found it's a little trickier to unhitch mine compared to a standard pinbox because of the pin's angle when it's inflated. Perhaps if you start with the trailer a little lower so that it can ride up onto the saddle(?) a bit. JK

RE: Setting up my solar system

I like your periodic table. Oh, nice panels!

RE: 2018 Ram 3/4 Diesel PU max pin weight?

That's the wrong trailer for that truck. I have a 2018 1-Ton RAM and with a 2800 lb. pin weight plus a generator in the bed and a few things in the back seat. My rear axle weight is 6780 lbs. at the CAT scale. That's barely under the 1-Ton axle rating. JK

RE: Weird noise! I know. I know but need help!

Looking at the floorplan, that's right around the right rear tire. I can hear the pitch change with your speed. Sounds like something rubbing on a tire.

RE: Finding DIY car/truck wash locations north of Dallas?

I went to the Blue Beacon just west of Fort Worth about 6 months ago. They did a good job except my Furrion camera stopped working shortly after. My bad, for not telling them to avoid spraying it when the guy asked me what to be careful of. And it looks like they have one in Denton. JK

RE: Ram Short Bed best slideer hitch

Pullrite and Demco seem to be the top 2 automatic sliders. I have the Demco and it's been great. JK

RE: Mississippi Coast campgrounds

We like Davis Bayou Campground. It's a National Seashore campground with electric and water. Just outside Biloxi. We were there 2 years ago and were supposed to be there in late March but they closed it and canceled our reservation. It appears they have nothing available until October. JK

RE: Is there a difference between Flex-air and Air-ride hitches?

My's the Tri Glide that was discontinued. The Flexair is its replacement.

RE: Is there a difference between Flex-air and Air-ride hitches?

Trailair is the brand name. AirRide is the current model air bladder / shock absorber pinbox. FlexAir was an air bladder pinbox as well, but also had a rubber cushion, I guess, similar to the morryde pinbox. I think this model has been discontinued. JK PS.... if you're looking to buy, prices do change daily. I paid $939 including tax and shipping last August from Camping World. They had the best price.

RE: Remote Door Lock?

I installed ours over a year ago and it still has the original batteries in it. RVLock's best sale is on one day Thanksgiving weekend-- don't remember if it's on Friday or Saturday-- for 40% off. They had just sent me an email recently for 30% off. JK

RE: Slide out awning?

Our fifth wheel is only 31 feet long and the awning covers a good portion of the side, including the entire dinette slide. It doesn't touch the slide when extending it and in the hot sun does help keep the heat at bay. JK On edit, I'll add that on a breezy hot day I'll partially extend it to cover the slide but not totally expose the awning to the wind.

RE: Exclusive: Utterly Unique Fifth Wheel

It's nice to see outside the box thinking, but one downside to me is a lot of wasted space with the long hallways, especially with the mid bunk model. That's why I like split bath floorplans, or even master suites. JK

RE: Gatlinberg, TN and Ashville, NC

Just watched this new YouTube video, just west of Gatlinburg, but looks like a nice place near Wears Valley:

RE: Mnnesota and Wisconsin

If you hit Wisconsin on a weekend without reservations you will probably have a hard time finding a site. A guy I know just had to spend Friday night at a truckstop because of no open sites near Wisconsin Dells. Wasn't finding anything for Saturday night north of Milwaukee, last I heard. During the week should be fine. JK JK

RE: What type of hitch do I need?

I do not trust etrailer. Last fall I bought an AirRide pinbox from them online. It said 'in stock' and 'ships today'. The next day I checked the Tracking with no results so I called them and they said it would ship that day. So the next day I checked the tracking again with no results, so I called them again and they said it was on back order. I looked at it online again and their website still says 'in stock', so I canceled my order and got it from Camping World for $150 less and it arrived at my house a few days later. Way better experience. JK

RE: Unleaded vs. Premium gas, does it make a differnce?

I am into muscle cars and as mentioned above, higher octane is for one thing: to prevent pre-ignition (pinging) by burning slower and cooler. Lower octane gas burns faster and hotter. I use to think that higher octane made more power, but not now. JK

RE: Winegard® Connect™ 2.0 WiFi & 4G LTE

We've had the Winegard unit for 1.5 years now and generally like it. It usually improves campground wifi and when boondocking love the 4G. The data from Winegard is expensive and have bought the 10 gig plan at least 10 times. We use the data for our phones and laptop, and have a Sony smart blueray player that has wifi built in to watch YouTube on the TV. And this unit only needs 12 volts to operate. I'm not a really a geek and this thing can get quirky for me sometimes but there's a little learning curve. JK
