RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dale, So sorry to hear of you Mom's passing. My condolences.

RE: remote temperature monitoring

We use Waggle pet monitor. You can set temp and humidity ranges and it will check every 10 minutes. Notifies you instantly if settings go out of range, by text and/or e-mail. It will also notify you if RV power goes out and/or comes on. As long as you can get cell service at the RV it works great. I noted that the battery lasts about a week (checked while in storage) and charges back up again pretty quickly. I turn off notifications when it is storage or we are on the road! Can't recommend this enough.

RE: Tires...I know, tired subject

Go with the Carlisle HD tire and update to an E rated if available. They are doing well for many of us. You don't need to go to 16" tires IMO. Ditto - that's what I did.

RE: Denver area in Winter??

Lived in Denver area for 30 years. Much of the advice above is good. I would not do it. As suggested, board dogs and get hotel.

RE: 5th wheel Hitch recommendations

I have RAM 2500 Short bed and installed a DEMCO 18K Autoslider. Never have to worry about hitting the cab with the 5er. :)

RE: Rv locks install

I installed one earlier this week. Took 5 minutes. Excellent mod to the trailer.

RE: Towing My Boat Behind My Fiver'

Lawyers got rich on this one!! I doubt it, as it is legal in Colorado. I towed like this for years. Even had a State Patrol officer stop and help me with a tire change on I-225.

RE: Propane tank level monitor

I just installed Mopeka tank sensors on my tanks. Seem to work very well. Here it is on Amazon. I bought two. You can label them in the app so you know which side they are on if you have two tanks.

RE: Hauling bicycles

We use this bike cover for our two electric bikes and then cover that with this cargo net to prevent any flapping.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard posted on FB that the latest stroke may cost him his sight in the one sighted eye he has left. Very concerning. Suggest even if Richard can no longer post, we do not let the Old Fella thread die. Totally agree. I have looked for Richard's FB page but am unable find the right one..... As for us, we are taking new truck and trailer on a trip up to the Mark Twain Natl Forest (near St Louis in about 10 days. 800 miles - friends/former neighbours in Colorado are bringing three 5ers up to meet us (about 800 for them too! Really looking forward to it. Wanderlost - if I cannot get on Richard's FB page can you please give him our best. We met at the OF Rally in Colorado a few years ago.

RE: Continental Trailer Tires

Carlisle Radial Trail HD (ST225-75R-15E on mine) are rated for 81 mph. Not that I'd ever tow that fast!!

RE: US 36 in Colorado

If you stay on I-25 you won't get to Estes Park. He means 36 from Denver to Lyons v I-25 to Loveland and then to Lyons. (but I'm sure you knew that.........) As a prior 30 year resident of Denver area do the I-25 to Loveland route if you want quicker, or 36 if you want slower, more hilly and much prettier. Having done both, towing a 28ft 5er, I actually prefer the 36 route. :)

RE: Yellowstone Next Week - Freezing Temps Concern

Forecasted low temps look to be around 30-35. Am I worrying too much? Yes. :)

RE: 50 amp in a 30

Our TT ran on 30 amp and we used our AC and electric water heater. We ran everything electric. We would turn off the AC when using the microwave. Now we have a 2016 FW that runs on 50 amp. When 30 amp is all that is available, we only run one AC, the residential fridge and the electric water heater. I don’t know why people are saying don’t run the electric water heater. I have not seen anything in the owner’s manual of either RV I have owned that says you can’t use the electric water heater when on 30 amp shore power. Check your manual to see if your unit has this restriction. Exactly the same here. I wonder if some folks who have 50 amp units have ever owned a 30 amp unit. When we had our 30amp 5er we thought that folks only had 50 amps so they could have a 2nd a/c. Now we have a 50amp 5er with 2 a/cs we still think the same!!

RE: 5th wheel tailgate

I have been happy with Custom Flow I had a Custom Flow on the 2001 Ram just as strong as the OEM. With the 2016 Ram I don’t want to loose the backup camera. Same here - loved my Custom Flow on my 2004 RAM, but with my 2019 RAM I like the backup camera too much! :)

RE: DVD and Blu Ray being discontinued?

When we go camping I download whatever we want to watch from Prime or Netflix onto my iPhone. For Prime you can keep a program at least 72 hours after you have started watching it, but you can keep them up to 30 days if you haven't watched them yet. I bought an adapter for the iPhone that has an HDMI cable socket. iPhone adaptor. There are cheaper ones on Amazon but a lot of reviews say they don't work. This one is from Apple and works fine for me. You start watching the downloaded/saved program on the phone and it can be watched on the TV once the HDMI is selected. I found that if you try to start watching with the cable already connected it gives an error message, but if you start it on the phone and then plug in the cable it works great! The only limitation is how much space you have available on your phone.
