RE: Things to do in Biloxi/Gulfport MS

Thanks everyone. we are staying at Gulf Beach RV Resort. definitely doing the National Seashore. I remember looking somewhere online there was a maritime museum with buoys and stuff outside along with indoor exhibits, but have not been able to find it. I mentioned this in my post..maybe it's what you are referring to. Gulfport has the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies..dolphins, sea turtles, seals...I think you need to make reservations online. Thanks. I did look at that, but I didn't see what I was looking for. We will check it out.

RE: Travel Trailer Newb question RE: WDH

5k lbs dry weight will end up around 6k lbs ready to travel. proper tongue weight should be around 12%. that would put you at 750lbs give or take a few. you will need a WD hitch for 800/8000lbs.

RE: Time for new tires?

Well tell all this to our friends parents. They were in there way back from a 3 week trip and had a tire blowout on the tollway about 30 miles from home. The LR inner dual blew. Took out the black tank and drain, fuel filler neck and really tore up the wheel well as well as one of the storage compartments. The MH was down for 3 months while they tried to locate parts and find a place willing to do the repairs! All this because they too thought their tires “looked good” $1000 in tires and that would’ve gave them no headaches as well the possibility of losing control!

RE: Air Ride System - I need an education

I thought Ram offered rear air ride. The 1500`s have a full air ride option. the 2500/3500 have a leaf spring with an air bag that supports the weight. the leaf spring is basically there to keep the axle located and to provide some support when unloaded.

RE: Time for new tires?

Run em as long as the tread is good. Reading this post and then seeing your signature makes me shake my head! OH please explain. All that money you've got tied up in your truck/5th wheel and you`d risk a blowout because they still look good!

RE: Air Ride System - I need an education

You have air ride systems which completely replace the rear leaf springs and front on a complete system, with new links and then air bags. Expensive but rides nice and you can adjust ride height. Then you have air assist which is a bolt on system that helps the OEM springs. This is cheaper and easier to install and will help level out the rear of the truck when towing a heavier trailer.

RE: Niagara - campgrounds on the Canadian side

We stayed at the Jellystone in Canada. It was a decent campground. Basically anything on he Canadian side is developed. I know there is a KOA but we didn't drive by it. He Jellystone offered free shuttles to the falls. It worked out perfect for us. We were there in 2013.

RE: Galveston area things to do

Thanks. We are taken the ferry over. We are leaving from New Orleans in the morning and heading to Galveston (Jamaica Beach). What about in Houston?

Galveston area things to do

Hello. Looking for things to do in the areas mentioned. will be there the 2nd weekend of July. I have found stuff to do, but looking for other recommendations. Ive tried looking up visitor guides, but haven't found anything with any real good info. most states/areas have gone away from printed guides. And their online guides are average at best? looking for attractions and good food (BBQ and such). Ideas?

Things to do in Biloxi/Gulfport MS

Hello. Looking for things to do in the areas mentioned. will be there the 1st week of July. I have found stuff to do, but looking for other recommendations. have plans on the National sea shore, maybe the maritime museum. will probably do a canoe ride on the wolf river. Ive tried looking up visitor guides, but haven't found anything with any real good info. most states/areas have gone away from printed guides. And their online guides are average at best? looking for attractions and good food. Ideas?

RE: Weight Distribution Hitch

Boy did you go backwards! F250 V-10 and a tent trailer to an F150 and a 7k lb TT! Yes do some proper lubing and all should be good!

RE: 3x3" receiver hitch!

Great. A bigger adapter to dodge on the road when they forget to remove them.

RE: Increasing towing capacity

What we are talking about here is strengthening the coach frame and adding a receiver. We don't need to be PE's to know how to increase that. In fact look next any RV, MH or Trailer and you can see that what the manuf designed is questionable. If I add extra supports or fish plates at is not going to cause a failure. Now if we were saying to install a class III receiver and tow 10k lbs with it then yes that's a problem. Or if someone installs smaller brakes than what was designed.

RE: Weight Distribution Hitch

On the hitch size. A 7800lb dry trailer will weigh at least 9500lbs loaded for a trip. That would give a properly loaded tongue weight of 1200+ lbs. the 1200/12,000 lb hitch is necessary. At that weight no hitch is going to be quiet. You will get some popping and screeching! Not familiar with your hitch either. I ran a Reese 1200/12,000lb Dual Cam (centerline) hitch. It made noise but wasn't bad. My suspension was far noisier than he hitch until I rebuilt the springs with bronze sleeves and wet bolts. After that I could pull into a campground with the WD still engaged and it was quiet.

RE: Dishwasher install issues on 2016 Fleetwood Excursion

It shouldn't be hard. The biggest line is the drain and that is about 1" in diameter. I'm sure the drawer don't go flush up against the wall. There should be a couple inches or more behind he drawers when they are closed. Sounds like the shop didn't want to do the work.

RE: agm battery life

AGM’s can last along time if charged correctly. I had one in my Excursion. It was 9 years old when I sold it. Still in good shape. If your using them for a trolling motor I would consider them. As long as you have the required paddle on board I would use them.

RE: The Verdic is in, New Ford 7.3 V-8 Gas mpg not so Great

Why would anyone expect an engine, although newer, with 2 less cylinders but a larger displacement, to get noticeably better fuel efficiency? Especially so in something with the aerodynamics of a brick like a heavy motorhome. No such thing as a free lunch. Yeah, that was kind of my thought as well. I had a chevy 454 in a 3500 Savanna Van back a few years ago, and my gas mileage never was above 10mpg. It went down to 7-8 when I was towing my 12,000 pound trailer. There is no free lunch. As someone in an earlier post said, good gas mileage and RV should never be used in the same sentence. Al It's called technology. Replacing a 20 year old motor with something new should get better mileage. Just like when the V-10 replaced the 460, more power and better mileage. Otherwise all it is, is a new motor with nothing to be said for it. Hopefully we get some real world reports and not some information from a couple guys I wouldn't trust driving a pedal car.

RE: Splendide XC Combo oiling our clothes?

We have been concerned about the oil spots on our lighter colored clothes and wondering where we got them. Our latest wash cycle oil spotted the back of my favorite white shirt and I know it had to be from the washer. Any ideas? Bob We have found that fabric softener often leaves a deposit on the clothes. We got tired of having to rewash clothes so we stopped using Downey or anything and just use some dryer balls for static control, if necessary. PS We have been using our Splendide for 5 years now. I have also found the fabric softener will leave spots. It's not all the time. I think it d pendant on how the clothes are laying in the machine?
