RE: Touch Up Paint

As previously mentioned a good body shop or paintless repair service should be able to match and blend the paint.

RE: Is all DEF the same?

I think the bigger story is the shortage of DEF due to Urea and China holding back shipments of this raw material. The next big story will be a shortage of fertilizer. Shortage is in S Korea and Australia. Spreading "shortage" stories like this only creates panic buying. No one on several other forums I frequent has reported not being able to find DEF. Even the poorly stocked Wal Mart near me has 3 different brands of DEF available.

RE: Truck of the Year

Every time I think M/T has sunk to a new low regarding truck/car of the year they manage to lower the bar even more. By my measurements they are near the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

RE: Generator to run three RV's?

Back in the ATV riding days we camped with 5-8 other toy haulers, rather than having 5-8 gensets roaring we rented one large towable generator that you you barely hear running. Worked out quite well and we didn't all burst into flames.

RE: Tongue/Hitch Weight Conundrum

My opinion is you will be overloaded, as RV manufacturers tend to underestimate their products weight, much the same as users underestimate how much stuff they load in their RVs. With that being said, unless you want to weigh the trailer and tongue weight then carefully load everything to make sure you are "within range" I would find a different unit, because the real issue here is the razor thin margin of error, as you can end up with a combination that is not only dangerous, but a real chore to drive.

RE: Memory seats

Yes the use will wear things out, but in the grand scheme it's not something worth worrying about.

RE: No ship to store

I believe there is not an official company Camping World store in Reno. I use Amazon Hub lockers for fast delivery of small packages. They are everywhere and one is very close to my location. Also use UPS store for delivery of larger packages. Sierra RV Sales on south Virginia street list themselves as a Camping World on their website but street signs show only Sierra RV and no mention of camping World. More dealer trickery that is almost everywhere. They have changed the signage to Camping World and set up an actual parts store, that despite being rather small, is fairly well stocked.

No ship to store

I wanted to buy a combo LP /CO detector. I found what I wanted on the Camping World site. So far so good. Then it came time to close the deal. Only I found there is no "Ship to store" for the Reno NV location, nor did the store have any in stock. Since I couldn't get what I wanted without paying for shipping, I went to Amazon. I have no idea why store pickup isn't available, but if the purpose is to push sales to Amazon it's working.

RE: Indian Reservations

As previously mentioned follow traffic laws closely, especially speed, no allowance there. And they have their own fine schedule.

RE: Observations from the road

We just wrapped up a couple of months on the road. From the west to the midwest, then south, across the southwest & home. Found most CGs filled up with overnighters, So I was glad I had made reservations. We didn't hit any real touristy places like amusement parks, but things did seem busy at the places we did stop, but when compared to last year, attendance has increased. To me the truck count seemed about the same as previous trips. Fuel prices were higher in the west, lowest in the south. Despite what the media (both social and other) wants you to think, this country still has a lot of good people. All in all a good trip. As soon as we can, we will be back out there.

RE: Let’s hear your best MPG and driving style ?

'20 F350 6.7, 35' fifth wheel. 13 MPG in Indiana, 9.6 MPG bucking a big headwind in Texas. Averaged 11.5 over 7500 or so miles at 65-68 MPH.

RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

If one wants to wear out their equipment and get poor mileage running at 80, go for it. But don't complain when things prematurely wear out or tires fail. Me? I run 65-68 which nets me good MPG.

RE: Fan Plans

For Drag Racing fans I recommend The Don Garlits museum in Ocala FL Motorcycle fans (and folks who appreciate fine machinery) need to visit the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham AL Of course there is the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green KY

RE: Flying J frustrations - Alternatives?

This is exactly why I invested in an in bed fuel tank. We get to the CG, unhook and buy reasonably priced fuel where I can pay at the pump without waiting in line or doing the back and forth walk.

RE: need key help

There was an industry change from Trimark (typically roundish key head) to FIC then to Global (both square heads) over the years. Most likely your coach will have either FIC or Global. Your entry door key will either say FIC or have Global lock molded into the plastic. Good chance the compartment locks are the same brand. The RV biz is notorious for using the same/ common (generic) locks for the compartments so your dealer should have some of the common (generic) compartment keys lying around as every coach comes from the factory with lots of extra compartment keys. If not, order either FIC or Global keys from the sites linked in earlier posts.

RE: Electrical layout in fifthwheel

6FT sure looks like scribbled GFI. Outdoor, kitchen and bathroom receptacles are typically GFCI protected.

RE: Duramax Turbo adventure conclusion

When I was doing maintenance purchasing for a trucking company, we had one tractor that would randomly lose power. No codes, no cel..just a complete lack of power. After several tows, lots of checking and rechecking, an ECM replacement we finally put our technical director in the truck with a laptop so he could monitor all the various sensors. Turned out the boost sensor would randomly drop out, so the ECM would cut fuel- resulting in no power. This taught me the value of a "flight recorder" so every sensor output can be reviewed.
