RE: Bridge height apps

I have park advisor and yes it does show the rest stops and stuff. I wasn’t aware that it did low clearance. I can’t figure out how to put in for trip planning on it.

RE: Bridge height apps

Thank you for the replies I found a app called truckers map it has things for clearance as well as location of truck stops. May try that one out also.

Bridge height apps

I was wondering what is a good app that lets you know the height of bridges on roads across our great country. Thanks for the help.

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

When I said I rest the meters I to only use the miles towing to figure it up and what the on board mpg meter says. It is not a mix of towing vs non towing. I just said what I see when I figure it and what my on board meter shows while towing. Op had ask about fuel stops so I answered with what I see and have done and everyone wants to think that I do it wrong or don’t believe it. Everyone have safe travels and the main thing is to get about and enjoy there rv and the beautiful country that God has created.

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

For what it is worth my truck doesn’t have all the bells and whistles in it. It is basically a work truck no carpet vinyl seats and floor , no electric locks or windows . Just a plain ole truck.

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

I hand calculate it and compare it to what the onboard computer says. I don’t pull over 70 mph, try to stay around 65 mph.But also the highest elevations I have pulled is in the Smokies. Fifth wheel is around 10500 fully loaded . I don’t carry anything in my tanks except fresh water tank a 1/3 full.

RE: fifth wheel gas stops

I pull my 32 foot fifth wheel with 2016 6.2L F-250. I get about 12-13 miles to the gallon and I use park advisor when planning trips. It shows gas stations and has reviews and you can also view the station by satellite view.

RE: I-10 in Louisiana

Thank you for the detailed reply. I take it that there are good gas stations to pull into with a 32’ fifth wheel

RE: I-10 in Louisiana

Thank you for the replies.We will be leaving Florida end of next June heading towards Colorado Springs. I’m trying to figure out which interstate to take until outside of Dallas and then cut though to Amirillo. I had thought about taking I-10 then I-12 until Baton Rouge then go up to Shreveport, then go towards Dallas.

I-10 in Louisiana

I was wondering what the condition of I-10 is in Louisiana . Does it beat you to death while towing? I will be towing a fifth wheel.

RE: pulling fifth wheel with f250 supercab 6.2L engine

You will be fine. I pull our fifth wheel with same truck. Yes it does pull a lot better than travel trailer does. We had only travel trailers for years and got our fifth wheel a year and half ago and will not even think about going back to travel trailer. We have pulled it in smokies and no problems

RE: Slide out awnings

I use the big noodles and cut one in half and tape it to the top of a whole one. It takes 3 of them and I use a small ladder to get up on to slide them under the awning. One has a 3/4 inch of pvc pipe in it that is longer than the Noles to help reach it to get out from middle of awning. I use it on the big slide my short closet slide it is to high up and don’t use one.

RE: Slide out awnings

Yes for all the reasons previously stated. I did however take the big swim noodles and use them to slide under the topper when it rains to help let the water run off and not cause it to sage in a bad down pour. The reason I did this was because I was in a bad downpour and the awnings sages enough to cause the water to run off on top of slide .

I-20 in Mississippi

In the process of planning a trip out west to Colorado was wondering what the condition of I-20 though Mississippi, Louisiana is like. It is mostly smooth or will it beat you to death. I’m pulling a 32 foot fifth wheel.
