RE: Six-point leveling system -- reduce rocking

I used 6 x 6s about a foot long. I also added nice sturdy handles that make it very easy to carry them to and from my truck bed. I use these in order to reduce the chance of getting 6 pt leveling stoke error.

RE: General 5th Wheel Brand Question

I would consider Montana and Cedar Creek as high MID-level units.

RE: Rving coming to an end

Best wishes for your wife Ken. Don't ever give up, the power of prayers works. Sure hope you get to continue RVing, even if this just delays your adventures. Hang in there.

RE: Real-life experience blocks to aid 6-point leveling system

I have always used 6x6 blocks under the leveling pads to avoid getting a stroke error. I went to Lowes and bought nice large handles, which makes carrying and grabbing the blocks much easier. They go in the bed of my truck for easy access and are the first thing we do when setting up. Only on a few occasions did one side of the wheels lift off the ground.

RE: Winter cover for 5th wheel

I also use an ADCO cover because we park under some trees and they are dirty. WE cover in mid to late Nov and uncover late March early April....all depends on our schedule. Ours is about 13 yrs old, but has only been used 3 times. We used it in 2018 & 2019 on our current signature RV. WE used it once on our 2009. It is still in good shape. When not in use, we store it in a gigantic wheeled/covered garbage can.

RE: Sunday in Kansas City unusual site

I thought it was an interesting response....initially thought it was kind of mocking the OP...but I see the humor behind it also.

RE: Two features a must in a fifth. Who builds them

The only stops we make are for bathroom breaks....we carry snacks and sandwiches in the truck to eat on the no need to open a slide until we reach our destination. When at home its no big deal opening the slides....and we really only need to open one of them if we have to. To each his own.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

I love my 18K Patriot which works very well with our signature 5ver. Very easy to adjust the height if needed.

RE: Tow vehicle in the shop

To make 2 long stories short, let me just say never again will we consider GS ERS.....we have Coach Net. In both cases, the GS operator was not much help and in the 2nd time she was totally incompetent. The second time we needed them we had found a local repair tech that was working on our trailer's issue for 2 hours before we got a call back from GS.

RE: advice on 5th wheel hitch option

I had a 2008 GMC2500 D/A with the 6.5' bed. We towed a Cedar Creek Silverback for 10 years using a Husky manual slider. I NEVER had to use the slider and my trailer was very close to 90 deg. I will add, that the corners were "cut" out which provided more turning room, but I was never worried. It was comforting to know that if I needed it, I had it. Good Luck.

RE: Pin Box with Air

Rob - I have a trailair and the B&W Patriot....and as been said, I put some weight on the plate and let her slide up and in....she locks with no problems. I also leave the airbag inflated, but usually add some air before I head out - especially if she sits for a few weeks.

RE: Tires

I totally agree with heavy your trailer weighs makes all the difference in tire choice. I love my Westlake G rated tires....when time to replace it will either be them again, or Sailun 637s.

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

Our Tractor Supply sells propane by the gallon.....I think I paid $2.29 or $2.59/gal.....I can't remember...I topped both 30lb tanks took 3.1Gal and the other 2.3Gal...getting ready for colder weather. When full they both weighed 54 lbs.

RE: rockies or smokey's

Some of you will get a chuckle out of this, but I NEVER use my truck's cruise control when towing.....NEVER.

RE: Forest River RV Cedar Creek Silverback 29RW - feeback

We too are on our 2nd Cedar Creek (also kept first one 10 years). We took our brand new 2019 unit straight to Orvan from the dealership....and he found and made some adjustments & repairs now for future issues that might arise. He was fantastic...showed us a few tricks. WE pulled our 2009 32WRL Silverback, 14K GVW, with our 2008 GMC 2500 D/A. We were well over the trucks GVWR - I had added airbags when I bought the trailer and after about 5 years I added wider wheels and tires to increase that capacity. At times the trailer was pushing the truck - but I never had that "white Knuckle" feeling. I could feel some improvement when I added the wider tire/wheel combo. The truck had no problems stopping the trailer. Our current CC Hathaway is much heavier (GVW is 16.3K), hence we have a 2017 GMC Dually D/A. Big improvement as far as stability goes. I also added disk brakes on this the trailer can stop the truck. I hope this helps. Good Luck, Mike

RE: Storage space vs phoney fireplace.

We love our fireplace too. It heats the main room, and is MUCH more quiet than the furnace...there is a wall unit which adequately heats our we rarely need the furnace - saving propane.

RE: Smart Locks

We love our RVLock….the remote is very convenient when you have an arm full. Replacing the batteries was easy.
