RE: Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge

Not sure if the first few are aware of the all the illegals crossing into the US from remote areas like this. Panama caught 38 illegals and all had terrorist backgrounds and were headed to the US. Over 110 countries have been documented crossing or trying to cross into the US from Mexico. These facts can be easily googled. The close proximity to a remote border crossing is of concern to me. Add in the drug mules to that mix. That's why I was hoping to hear from someone who was actually there and can give me and my wife first hand information. I'd also like to know the condition of the roads. Thanks for your help.

Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge

Anyone camp at Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge near Sasabe, AZ? I was wondering in the access is good enough to get my 26 ft tt into and whether the area is safe.

Which Hitch do I buy?

My Truck: 2018 Ram 2500 diesel 4X4. Crew, short bed. I'm working with a Dealer for the purchase of a new 26' Grand Design TT that weighs around 5000lbs and 7000 GVWR. I need a recommendation for the hitch. I heard Reese was a good one. I would also like to have a little overkill in the event that we trade up to a larger trailer in the future. Thanks for you help.

GFI keeps tripping

GFI keeps tripping

The GFI in the kitchen of my 5th wheel pops every few hours. I noticed the wires were wrongly attached. It should be white on one side and black on the other. It also was a 20 amp whereas my breaker switch calls for a 15 amp. I went out and bought a 15 and hooked it up and now I'm not getting anything out of the outlet. I'm thinking that the wiring is all wrong with the house wiring. Or is there something I'm not getting right?

Which tire do I buy?

Hi, I'd like to buy new tires with more weight carrying capacity for my truck to pull an 11,000lb 5th wheel. The ones that came with the 2018 Ram 2500 are size : LT275/70r18 125/122s. I'm not sure if that means they are E rated or D. The brand I'm looking to buy are from Westlake. the ones I have are Transforce and well worn. Thanks for your help.

RE: love the truck hate the ride

I didn't mention the truck I'm interested in is a reg cab dually. Crew cabs ride better due to a longer wheel base.

love the truck hate the ride

I think a lot of us have seen that phrase more than once. Is there an air seat out there in the commercial market that worked for you or another solution that works as well or better. Thanks for your help.

50 amp in a 30

If I plug into 30 amp service at the RV Park, what can I run. Obviously, I wouldn't attempt to run both a/c's, but if I can get by with one, the park would be convenient for us. Thanks.

RE: Wildcat 5th wheel

You can also check on Tweeties. https://tweetys.com/ I also saw covers on Amazon for Dometic and Coleman for around $22.00

cost of Morryde suspension.

The suspension hardware on my 34ft, 9000lb 5th wheel look flimsily built and we travel extensively throughout the lower 48's. I'd like to have the MorRyde Cre 3000 installed. Can anyone give me an idea of the total cost including installation. Thanks.

Changed the rear springs

(My 2018 diesel Ram 4x4 2500 has coil springs front and back. I'm overloaded on my 5th wheel (2000lb hitch weight) and total GVWR by 800 lbs after everything is loaded up for travel. My local spring guy claims a heavier duty coil spring upgrade would solve the overload problem, since everything else on the 2500 is heavy duty. I would like to know if anyone else did the same to their similar truck and recommend it. Thanks.) That was my last post. Today, I got my truck back from the local spring shop with new heavier duty rear springs. They ride great, if not better than the worn in originals. The next thing is to test the load from the fiver, but have to wait for some snow and ice to melt in the storage lot. Hopefully, the lights in the faces of oncoming traffic will be fixed. If not, then I'll have to install a pair of airbags.

ram 2500 vs 3500

Was wondering what, besides the suspension, is the difference between a Ram 3500 and 2500 i.e.; brakes, axles and are bearing loads in both trucks the same? Do both have the same frame?

RE: Ram 2500 only carries 2300 lbs.

(Somethings not right with your numbers) I weighed my rig at a truck scale for all axles. I'm over 800lbs. Wife, hitch weight and anything you add up front of the 5th wheel which includes storage, batteries, propane and what ever is in the front wardrobe and under the bed storage, adds a percentage to weight transferred to the hitch weight on the bed of the truck. I think you should get your rig weighed again for all axles for a real world weight.

RE: Ram 2500 only carries 2300 lbs.

I'm nose high with headlights in the oncoming traffic's windshields. I get a lot of flicking lights at night because they think I have my high beams on. Okay, I decided to go ahead with the heavier springs. If she still sags I'll install air bags. I'm told they ride good, since the heavy-duty part is at the bottom of the springs. Thanks.

1 ton ride quality

For those who have the air suspension option in the Ram 3500, does it improve ride quality when empty?

RE: Gray tank cleaner

Bleach. But be careful not to mix it with commercial additives. I put bleach in the traps occasionally to keep out odors. Nothing else.
