RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

It's just the DEMAND for pickups that drive their price. It's crazy that you can buy a Class C motorhome for close to the same price as a fully dressed pickup. Since we keep buying them the price will keep getting higher. I have a 2005 GMC Duramax with 43000 miles on it. Sure do like the new ones but with an average of less than 3000 miles a year I just can't justify it.

RE: water pressure regulators

I needed a new gauge for my Watts and was shocked at the price of them today. Watts is the best but be prepared to pay $$$! I think I might be tempted to try the Valterra adjustable for under $60 on Amazon. You can buy a gauge at any hardware store. That's exactly what I did but you may be surprised at the lack of availability at any hardware store. Back mounted are harder to find but can be had online. It was in my search for the gauge that I saw the prices for a new one. A cheap gauge replacement was the answer for me and a lesson to store my regulator right side up so the oil doesn't drain out of it.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

I thought the Carlisle HD 15" had the new tread cap that improved them significantly? I still like the Maxxis 8008 and the GY Endurance.

RE: What 50 amp surge protector do you recommend, and why?

You want an EMS not a surge protector. I have and like the Progressive Industries EMS units. Mine is right after my autoformer before going into trailer. A rising star is the Hughes Power Watchdog combined with the Hughes Autoformer. The combination protects from low voltage as well as all the benefits of an EMS.

RE: RTIC Softside Cooler

So you did not open it until after 3 days and there was not ice? Because that is what those ratings typically mean. Ice test has you open lid once a day for 30 seconds. It was water long before that. Not much of a "real world" test. Now I'm told to fill with ice night before to cool down. I will try that. I'll live with whatever I get, it's just not what I had hoped for. Just a heads up for anyone mistakenly expecting more like I was.

RE: Arkansas SP $40 Dog Fee - REALLY ??

Seeing this more often. We just left a campground on the Parker Strip of the Colorado River and it was $30. It's because of all the bad dog owners who are too lazy to pick up after their dogs. Blame bad dog owners not the park operators.

RE: RTIC Softside Cooler

My Yeti softside cooler kept ice for about 48 hours while in my car (so not direct sun). I had a Yeti ice pack in the bottom, then cold drinks were added, then topped off with loose ice. I imagine a similar set up would work for the RTIC. I will give that a try. I'm sure it will help to use the correct method. Thanks.

RE: RTIC Softside Cooler

I'm not really trying to get 3 days out of it but 12-15 hours would be nice. I will try pre-cooling it and see if that helps. Not sure if RTIC actually makes a 3 day claim or if I was misled by reviews. Just not what I expected for $100.+

RTIC Softside Cooler

My BIL has an RTIC hardside cooler and it performs well. I needed a new softside cooler for my 10 day trip we just returned from. I purchased a 30 qt. softside directly from RTIC. They advertise that it keeps ice for 3 days. Don't be fooled! This is a day cooler. It hardly keeps ice for 12-15 hours. A styrofoam cooler would perform as well. We kept it in the air conditioned trailer with pre-chilled sodas and it was a joke. RTIC told me I was too late to return it but could try a warranty claim. They had me do a 3 day "ice test" which it failed completely. I was then told I could send it back at my expense and they would do an "ice test". Are you kidding me?... I guess I have a new $110. day cooler :M Don't waste your money!!!

RE: Flagstaff 26fwbs

I don't have one but we have been looking at the "sister" model by Rockwood. 2608 I like them both.

RE: 2020 vs 2021 Model

I would knock 35% off MSRP and make that offer. Then be prepared to increase but I would not go beyond 31 or 32% off MSRP. Sounds like you are dealing for a fifth wheel. Dealer #2 is already at 33.2% off but it's a year older. I would want a 2021 model if it were me.

RE: New truck - but its lifted and towing

If you like the lift then keep it and get a hitch with a larger drop on it.

RE: Marshall changeover regulator doesn’t indicate empty tank

It could be oil in the propane. Mine does similar but it does not show red nor green. It does switch over.

RE: Flashing rope light

You are probably looking for "Fairy Rope Lights". I don't care where you use them. If you like them, use them. Too many people on this forum with the attitude that "If I don't like them no one should have them". SAD....
