RE: Propane tanks 10 years old, what is best choice ???

Propane tanks are good for 12 years from date of first certification (aka manufacture) then must be re-certified every 5 years. If you have the standard 20# gas grill size then just exchange them. If you have the 30# size then I'm not aware of an exchange program for them so likely you'll have to get them re-certified or buy new ones. Recertification is like $10-$12.

Grand Canyon north Rim

Looking to spend a couple nights at/near the Grand Canyon North Rim in early May. North Rim Campground doesn't usually open until May 15th. So we are looking at alternatives. Not even sure it's possible that time of year due to the possibility of snow. We have a 34 foot 5th wheel and a 2018 GMC 3500 Crew Cab DRW 4X4. Any thoughts on ANY place to camp that's open that time of year near the North rim area and I can get my 5th wheel in to?

Tire Chains

Planning a summer 2022 trip to Alaska. Expect to enter Canada around the middle of May, enter Alaska around the first week of June, exit Alaska around the middle of August, exit Canada around the middle of September. Any need for tire chains for this trip?

RE: Headlights aiming up when towing?

I just put Firestone airbags on my GMC 3500 for the very same reason. Looking forward to trying them out.

RE: Best bang for the buck Golf Cart battery

Go with Crown batteries. Best in the U.S. and U.S. made.

RE: Can worn kingpins be refurbished?

I had mine welded. It had a groove worn in it about 1/4" deep. Works pretty well.

RE: Worn inside Tires

Verify my suspicions. I have worn tires on the rear axle tires on the inside. Very worn to a point I saw steel showing. The other tires are fine. Im guessing I don't have enough camber on the rear axle? What do you guys think? Jason You need an alignment. I get mine aligned every two years as part of my regular maintenance.

RE: Tires

I installed Endurance on my 5th wheel back in early January and immediately took a 2500 mile round trip to Arizona and back traveling at 70-75 mph with no issues.

RE: Wheel Bearing Repack

Costs me about $155 for two axles in the Wichita, KS area.

RE: should i raise tires off the ground for long storage

Not necessary. Only if you have old bias ply tires as they will tend to get flat spots, radial tires won't.

RE: Flag pole buddy

I built an aluminum plate mounted with two square end u-bolts to the bumper then cut a 12" piece of 3 inch PVC pipe and used 3" u-bolts to mount that to the aluminum plate. The flag pole sets nicely down into the PVC pipe.

RE: Different tire question ( I think)

I currently have Endurance on my 5ver and boat trailer but have only had them for less than 3 months. Previously on the 5ver I've run U.S. made Marathons and unknown origin Maxxis without any issues but I've had a TPMS since 2012 on the 5ver.

RE: Hitch and Pin Box Replacement

I've welded much more critical parts for suspension and steering linkage for some hot rod junkie friends so I know how I would fix your hitch and pin. Craig Discussed this with my welder friend. He welds anything and everything for a living. He said this is an easy acceptable weld fix for this application. He'll be doing the welding next week.

RE: First Cat Scale Weigh In

Sorry, but there should still be another door label with the wording: "Total weight of passengers and cargo should not exceed XXXX Lbs" Found this sticker, didn't originally see the print stating the capacity. Thought it just mentioned tires and pressures. I have updated my original numbers.

RE: What is this piece called?

Hey all, I am going to try to make this question as easy to understand as possible. It does t seem that I can post a picture here to get any assistance but I’ll do my best. In the center of my fifth wheel hitch there is a piece of metal that runs diagonal , just under where the kingpin would be sitting. What is that for and what is it called? Feel free to email me at: [email protected] and I’ll be able to send a picture of what I am talking about, just in case I’m not making this easy to understand. Thank you. Have no clue without a picture. Look in the forum help and support link top right for how to post pictures.

RE: First Cat Scale Weigh In

Doesn't look like there was a question from the OP, just posting numbers from his first weigh. I questioned why his 2018 3500 Dually had a cargo cap over 1000 Lbs lighter than mine. And some others questions some of the other numbers. The numbers are off the placards/stickers placed by GM.

RE: Hitch and Pin Box Replacement

Where did you see this? I just looked at Reese's website and they are still showing it as being avail/made. I have the 5th AB and love it. Oh, have a B&W Patriot as well and love it too. I called Reese and was inquiring about the hitch and they told me it was no longer being produced in an effort to reduce the number of sku's. None in stock and only a couple in Canada.
