RE: 2014 Keystone - Montana 3100RL -- Chev 2500HD Diesel

Legally carry? Weight police don't care about RV's To the OP, my first towing truck was your make and model in 2009. My 5th wheel was the same weight as yours and I never had an issue towing all over the country. Have fun.

RE: Class C Pros and Cons

I drive all types of motorhomes at work. What I find about Class C's is they lack leg room and I feel cramped with the slide behind my seat.

RE: Orlando to Los Angeles Good Sam Trip Planner

We always take detour around Phoenix. Going east-I 10 to Buckeye, Az.-85 to Gila Bend-I 8 to I 10. Really easy, relaxing drive. Our daughter and family live in Vail, Az. S. of Tucson. If you need cheap place to overnight in that area-Good Sam-Pima County Fairground Rv Park just off I 10 and we always stay overnight in Quartzsite, Az at-Good Sam-Holiday Palms.Pima County Fairgrounds might not be a good stop. The exit at Houghton Rd. is under construction (construction of a 6 lane bridge) and the westbound off-ramp is closed as is the eastbound on-ramp. The next off-ramp is Rita Rd and it is closed southbound for bridge repairs. Only good route is to get off at Rita and go north through the neighborhood and loop around to south-bound Houghton to cross I-10 ta gain access to the fairgrounds. Also, you can now bypass most of Phoenix by taking the 202 Loop west at the casino and it ties into I-10 well west of downtown Phoenix.

RE: tire pressure

Just so everyone knows: The burst pressure of a tire is many times the max pressure. Unless a tire is on fire, there is no risk of the tire bursting on its own without it being damaged by some object - even in Death Valley!Disagree. I've seen tires burst while mounted as a spare and never been on the road. One was mounted on the rear of a trailer, under a vinyl cover, and it blew a hole in the cover. Saw another one burst that was mounted under the trailer as a spare. Cheap Chinese tires. On topic, I never run max pressure in any tire. Tire pressure is a function of the weight being carried. If you're not at max weight there is no reason to be at max psi. My truck tires says 80 max psi. I'd be a fool to run my tires at that pressure. I run 70 front and 65 rear per the door sticker and the scaled weight that I carry. My trailer is at 70 psi.

RE: Weighing at Cat Scales

Go inside, tell the clerk it's your first time and you'll be taken care of.

RE: Thought on suspension equalizers

I had Equa Flex. I now have EZ Flex and like it much better.

RE: RPMs dropping uphill, Ford f-450

I recently got some bad diesel and couldn't climb grades. Once I got better fuel it was back to pulling great. Maybe it's your fuel.

RE: Poor roadside assistance

I try not to depend on anyone for help, these RSA outfits are a huge disappointment. When I get to where I can't change my own tires I'll stop 5th wheeling and do something else. On the plus side I've never had a tire failure on my trailer but then I use truck tires that are much better made than trailer tires.

RE: What software are RV parks using to keep track of things?

My former son-in-law built a small RV park and learned there are many software packages out there for sale. He picked one that lets the camper pick the spot. That's the kind of software I like. Our go-to park in San Diego is Chula Vista. For years you were at the mercy of whoever was working the desk at check-in. Not what you'd expect for a $100 a night park. They have new owners now and have gone to the pick-your-space software, which is absolutely terrific.

RE: Is it a good time to sell?

I work for a multi-state dealer and inventory has been flying out the door. Here in Tucson it's mostly trailers, Class C's, and used motorhomes. We're setting up our show for Thursday and have around 65 total units when we should be well over 200 (thank you Covid). There isn't much inventory any where. Now seems a prime time to sell - lots of demand, little inventory.

RE: Klamath Falls Oregon to Lakeview Oregon

Get yourself a Motor Carrier's Atlas. Highlights the roads approved for 18 wheelers. If they can go there so can you.

RE: Goodyear Marathon tires- Ever get reimbursed?

I had a boat trailer with Marathons. Had a blow out but GoodYear denied my claim because there wasn't anything left of the tire, they say, to identify it as a GoodYear tire. I wouldn't buy anything from GoodYear for the way they treat some of their employees recently.

RE: New 5th Wheel Driver

Doesn't matter what you do to your truck when you drive onto a bridge and hit the bump - you're gonna bounce. There's been some bumps I thought the pin was going to come out of the hitch. Your 5th wheel, unlike an 18 wheeler, has the wheels towards the middle of the trailer making you like a kids teeter-totter, your gone bounce on the bumps.

RE: Turning pivot points for 40’ RV class A

I drive all lengths of motorhomes at work and I just go around half way into the second lane on a right turn and the back tires clear fine. Sounds like you just need to get out and drive and gain some experience points. Just keep an eye on your back tires going through the turn. Lasydays RV has training videos for you to watch.

RE: Hooking up 30A at home

I did 30 amp at my house. Home Depot had the RV 30amp plug receptacle and I used 10 gauge wire, as I recall.

RE: Windows on drivers side?

You may have to wait a bit finding what you want. Most dealers have really low inventory due to lack of production and record sales.
