RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Everyone says the unplug for the night. Is that because it drains the battery if you don’t?

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Thanks Barney, I agree with you. And to unhook when gas is needed, although not preferred, is certainly doable. At times we don’t know what we have until we get there. I’d rather unhook and get gas instead of going on down the road. And maybe have to unhook anyway. There are also times it seems like car owners just want to mess with us! Most are happy to oblige however.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Hey BarneyS, What Coach do you have that allows you so much access? It’s interesting when most do fifth wheel reviews they almost never shown with slides in. Knowing now there is no specific reason to unhook. I don’t quite understand why someone would? If there’s someplace you need to go sure. But otherwise I don’t see the reason for it. Barney, Do you find the unhitch and re-hitch for gas a big deal? I know you’d prefer not to, but is it that big a deal? And what hitch do you use?

RE: Anybody know what a rainbay/PDI facility is?

I know PDI… What is rainbay?

Anybody know what a rainbay/PDI facility is?

Hi guys, Is that a place where they check to make sure the Coach is water tight? That’s the only thing I can think of?

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Yah Cummins12V98, Why make us look bad parking like that? Thanks for pointing that out Jerry, kind of mean spirited of him! :)

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Hey Cummins12V98, nice paint job on your coach. I ordered my coach with full body paint. Anything as purdy as a fifth wheel needs to show out! I was looking at Alliance and decided against it because they didn’t offer it. I understand they do now. Thanks for joining in.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Yes I was responding the the previous poster. And the reason I mentioned about opening slides, especially a large slide. Is it May require the jacks extended to keep level and not put pressure on the frame.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Yes, I wish I could access our bed and salon without slides. No problem with bathroom. But everything else requires a slide.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Thanks guys, I’m glad I asked the question and good reply’s as always.

Do you unhook for the night?

I’m curious, When you stop for the night at Walmart, Park etc do you unhook? With my fifth wheel I have to open a small bedroom slide with the dresser and a large slide with the kitchen table and theater seating. Both on the park side of the Coach. What do you guys do? Do you stay hitched and deploy the jacks?

RE: first trip with new rigg

That 9.9 is terrific MPG. What are you pulling and great news on a good trip… That’s always good news.

RE: Curiosity of RV Park parking?

“I’m never going to that park, with trucks all over the place!” Funny and you’re right of course! Who’d of ever thought of pulling a fifth wheel with a truck? :) I was just surprised how many hung over the road. The sites at Valley River RV Resort in Murphy, NC are narrow the way it is. They have great management and really take care off the place though.

RE: Curiosity of RV Park parking?

Hi guys, I thought about the hookups etc but didn’t consider the sprinkle system or killing the grass. I was in the office the other day where a guy was complaining that two trucks on two different sites had to move so he could make the curve with his 40’ motorhome. Plus it makes the park look junky. Great park but I don’t know about all these trucks hang out over the park road.

A man of few words Mr. Bird, I like it!

Curiosity of RV Park parking?

Hi guys, I’m here at a very nice RV park in the mountains of NC. I’ve been surprised at the number of trucks over parked EVERYWHERE! Many sites the trucks are hanging over the road a little. Some are even parked horizontally across the front of the site. It looks like this could be solved by the fifth wheel hanging over the grass a little instead of 100% over the concrete pad. Not the wheels of course, just maybe 4 to 5 feet of the body. Is there a reason why a fifth wheel should not hang over grass?

RE: What is J-Wrap?

Hi Doug, I’m not sure I understand your post? Is it you’re not happy that I’m happy. Or you’re not happy because I’m happy because many others aren’t? I’ve gone through a bunch of stuff to get to a point of feeling good about my coach's future. Unless the folks told me bare faced lies, my coach is being fixed and are putting beefier metal on all their coaches. I believe the builder is doing everything they can to deliver me “as close to perfect coach” they can. They’ve not given me a run-around and have answered all of my questions? If they didn’t know or weren’t sure, they told me that. And then got back to me when they said they would with an answer. I don’t know how to ask a company to do anymore!

RE: What is J-Wrap?

Ok we’re getting there. I spoke with the senior tech who inspected my coach. He told me there is NOTHING wrong with the Coach structure and there are NO safety issues. The J-wrap problem was due to the medal supporting the the J-Wrap was too thin allowing flexing when the Coach was sitting uneven. It should not have happened and is being reinforced so it never happens again. They also took all basement doors off the Coach and reinforced their frames with a stronger metal. They guarantee it for the life of the Coach in writing! Can’t get much better than that. They will also perform a full PDI and will bring an independent inspector when their PDI is completed. I’m going on five (5) months without my coach but it sounds like once I get it it should be 100%! It’s been a “Long and Winding Road” (hey there may be a song in there somewhere?) Everything looks like it’s coming to a positive end.

RE: What is J-Wrap?

The Coach builder has had my coach since last week. I believe they will take a look at my coach this week. My hope is they will tell me honestly what caused the problem with 36’ of J-wrap on both sides of the Coach? I’ll let you know when I do!
Mondooker 05/03/22 07:54pm Fifth-Wheels
RE: What is J-Wrap?

Hi Ford truck guy, You guys knew what happened and what was being done to fix it. My concern is no one seems to know anything! The Coach builder should have it by the end of the week and I hope to know then what happened?
