RE: Landing Gear

I've also never seen anybody with a 5th wheel remove them.

RE: King pin stabilizer ?

With our first 5ver we only used the KP tripod if we were staying more than just the weekend....otherwise took it out of the basement. With our current 5ver, which has 6 pt leveling, the KP tripod is NEVER even loaded in the basement. It sits in our home's basement. I agree with a previous poster, with auto-leveling, if you use a KP stabilizer, you are asking for trouble - at a minimum, you are creating extra work for yourself.

RE: Water heater question

I flush my HW tank at the end of each season. This year, there was a high amount of calcium deposits in the tank bottom.....I spent a long time flushing a lot of it out. After seeing the previous poster's picture of the self draining anode, I can see it easily clogging - especially with all the particles I had this year. I'll pass.

RE: do you do this

I never have lifted tires, however, I do inflate a few pounds over their limit. I like the idea of moving the trailer a bit. I also re-inflate as winter wears on and tire pressure drops.

RE: winterizing black tank flush with air

Me too, I've never blown out my black tank flush in over 12 yrs. I do hope it just drains into the tank when driving down the road. Knock on wood, I've never had a problem either.

RE: Weighing Fifth Wheel at CAT Scale with Weigh My Truck App

I had my both the truck's and hitched trailer's tires individually weighed, which is even better than having the axles weighed (which I have also done). I would recommend this if the situation ever presents itself. The guy then pulled out the tire manufacturer's weight vs tire pressure chart and told me what tire pressures I could safely run instead of the max tire pressure (in my case 110PSI) given the tire weights. Safety should be a priority and Knowledge is always good.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

WE Love our 18K Patriot and although it is not the slider version, I will say that it is easy to remove....because it comes off in 2 pieces, neither which is heavy. I only assume the slider version also comes apart in 2 pieces. Good Luck.

RE: Disinfecting water lines

We use 2 separate hoses also....white & green. Sometimes I hook the splitter up, but not usually.

RE: Backup camera

My 38' Signature 5th wheel came with the Furrion Observation camera. I have the antenna signal booster in my front basement and have had no dropouts or frame freezes......which I did have before buying this. I'm very happy with my system. Good Luck.

Tire Pressure Accuracy

When measuring my RV tire pressure I have the TST TPMS, but when checking my tires before each trip, I also use one of those pressure measuring "sticks" (the kind in which you push on the stem and the measurer pops out the bottom telling you what your pressure is). The stick is much easier to use when adding air and with the TST, I have to repeatedly screw on/off...you guys know what I mean. My quantry - the two systems are about 7-8 pounds different (across each tire, 111/112 vs 104/5). Which system would you trust as being closer to the real tire pressure? My tires are 110 PSI rated. The stick is one of the bigger models, over a foot long, not sure if that means its better than a small style. Thanks for your help, Mike

RE: Your experience with a Dually vs SRW hauling 5ver

For 9 yrs I towed my 14K GVW Cedar Creek (about 12.6K actual) with our 2008 GMC 2500 CC Short bed SRW D/A. The trailer definitely pushed the truck around at times. When we knew we were going to be upgrading to a heavier trailer, we bought a 2017 GMC 3500 DRW D/A CC long bed. WOW, what a total difference. I barely knew the Creek was back there. The Stability was so much better. Now that we have a much heavier rig, we'll always tow with a dually and I won't be trading back down until I give up RVing.

RE: Duramax L5P Fuel Mileage

MY signature TV gets between 9.5 - 10.5 hauling my signature 5ver. I don't use it that much other than towing.

RE: AUXILiARY FUEL TANK

I had a 40G Titan aux tank added in the bed of my truck. I had a local diesel truck mod business install it. After some initial bugs (air in the line) it works great! It has LEDs which indicate the fuel level. The controller is inside the cab next to my steering column. I press the button and it adds fuel at a rate of 5 Gals in about 10 minutes...at which time it shuts off. I hit the button and the process starts again. The folks at Titan are OUTSTANDING. Good Luck.
