RE: Group 24 Flooded to Group 31 AGM

Well, we went to sign. Of course they tried to sell us GAP and extended warranties, which we declined. They honored their agreed upon pricing and we will receive it on Tuesday. T I'll just upgrade the batteries myself at some point, but for now we'll try to make the 2 24's work. Thanks all for the help! Two 24s will be fine for now. When you get your bigger batteries you'll need bigger battery boxes if they are in boxes. Then simply note how the old batteries are connected and connect the new ones the same way. Only reason you would have to change the way the batteries are connected is if you go with two 6 volt batteries. That will be $250 please. Cash accepted :)

RE: TPMS valve stems issue

Many tire stores have metal stems: Discount Tire, for example. X2 They put metal stems on my trailer rims. Rubber stems can Crack from tpms use

RE: 5th wheel Hitch recommendations

Andersen hitch all the way , with your setup it’s a no brainer .Quietest , lightest hitch on the market . Ideal for short beds , no need for those heavy manual or automatic sliding hitches . Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the Turning point swivel pin box that the OP’s trailer has requires a conventional hitch? You could be correct. The Andersen does not work with some pinboxes The Andersen site would have that information

RE: Towing a 42 footer… What do you think?

Hi folks, Found the perfect 5th wheel and it’s 42 feet. Started out looking for a 38 but it’s the 42 footer that best handles our needs. Not concerned about state parks etc. We will use an occasional parking lot on travel days but mostly RV park pull thru. When all is said and done does the extra 4 feet make that big of difference towing and in general? We go between Georgia and Montana most summers but pretty much stay in one place. So not a lot of traveling around with the Coach once we arrive at our destination. Thanks guys You should be fine with that setup. Generally every private campground we've stayed at can easily accommodate that size rig. Really nothing to worry about imo

RE: Battery Replacement?

I'm still running the J.C PENNY battery with the lifetime warranty from 1972. :) How many times has it been replaced? Cummins, you must be as old as I am if you remember the infamous "J.C.PENNEY BATTERY" with the lifetime warranty!

RE: Hot water in new 5er Montana

Tell her to join the Montana Owners Club forum. A very large active Montana only forum with lots of great helpful folks there. This is the best advice. The Montana owners forum will have a greater concentration of Montana owners obviously and you'll get a much greater volume of answers on point.

RE: Forest River

You should have a warranty sheet in your large packet of instructions describing the type of roof material used. That sheet should have the info you seek

RE: How many strokes??

...and there's about 500 YouTube videos on the topic. No need to make it more complicated than it is.

RE: How many strokes??

To the OP and as noted above and in my prior answer there is no set number of strokes. Follow the instructions

RE: Walmart selling LiFePo4 batteries $539

Gdetrailer, Yes, I thought it was being backed up by Walmart. GD is basically correct, they kind of operate like Amazon. But, every once in a while they have a great deal I can't pass up and I just have it shipped to the local store for free. Don't know what their return policy is but it's assume it's pretty liberal like their in store returns. Never had to return anything. I think you can do returns at the store but somebody should check me on that. They had a smoking deal on the Carlisle Radial Trailer tires I purchased for my old trailer a couple years ago. Discount Tire is right next door so they matched the price.

RE: Size Matters???

Buy what you like. The truck won't know any difference.

RE: How many strokes??

The center hub on the ez lube hubs is normally dry initially so it takes A LOT OF GREASE the first time. Easily half a tube. You pump the grease in until you see clean fresh grease come out the end. I use the red grease to see this easier. The next time you'll use much less grease because the center of the hub is now full. There is no set number of pumps. Plenty of YouTube videos to show you how. Rotating the wheel while you're doing it is a must.

RE: Question on Hydraulic Fluid

Make sure all your hydraulics are retracted...slides in and leveling system is up. Then check level. Our Lippert system uses auto trans fluid. X2 Makes a big difference in the level in the reservoir.

RE: Max Air Vent Cover Maintenance

That's why I like the Maxx Air II that has the quick release pins so you can easily check the condition of the vent base caulk. The vent cover itself is never caulked as noted above.
