RE: window next to door

I want to do something similar, but it’s for an outside TV. I will need to figure out where the studs are.One of the first things I do with a new rig is on a cool morning take pictures of the outside condensation patterns - ie the studs. Smart man. Yep, I was going to do that last year, but never got out there right away. I’m going to try that this year.

RE: Rochelle, IL

There are a few in Amboy IL and Shabona Lake state park. And Blackhawk Valley campground in Rockford. All are within 20-30 minutes from Rochelle.

RE: Wanting to install Ceiling Fan in Bedroom

Had one in our TT. With the low ceilings the fan will be too close to the ceiling to move any air. I never used it because of that reason. It was 12V and quiet. I wouldn’t waste my money. Get a free standing unit.

RE: dinging towing

Same here. Didn’t renew. Anything I want to read about I find on online forums or on you tube.

RE: 3.31 gears at 40,000 lbs gross.

Yes but the engine and trans are working harder in each of the gears with wrong gearing! No, they are not. They are working the same. Same input engine RPM. Same output wheel RPM. How it gets from A to B does not matter. What does matter is having 9 and 10 available when NOT TOWING for efficient cruising. You guys who are still adamant that 3 gears are plenty, are complaining about using "only 8?" You have to understand physics and how the transmission and rear end gearing work with each other. It’s more than just running the trans one gear lower.

RE: 3.31 gears at 40,000 lbs gross.

If it worked the way you said then the manuf would recommend that to tow a certain amount of weight you would lock out Ome of the top gears for that particular weight rating! Effectively, that's what they are doing. They just do it automatically. If the truck can only hold 8th gear, it won't use 9 and 10. You are seeing fewer rear end ratios available and they tend to be lower (numerically). The main reason to consider a higher (numerically) ratio is if the lower ratio doesn't have a tow rating sufficient for your trailer. If it's within the tow rating, the transmission will effectively lock out a gear or two so the overall gear ratio keeps the engine happy. Yes but the engine and trans are working harder in each of the gears with wrong gearing!

RE: Inflatable Kayaks

I have 2 of the Intex 2 man inflatable Kayaks. They work good for what they are. I’ve used them in the Tetons on Jackson Lake and down in the Gulf in Navarre FL. They are heavy and bulky, so when packing and storing them they take some work to move. Now that we have the MH and I tow our Explorer I’m thinking about getting a decent hard surface Kayak and putting them on the roof of the Explorer.

RE: Want to replace incandescent bulbs with brighter LED

I used similar daylight (5000k) LEDs in mine. Haven’t had any issues.

RE: 3.31 gears at 40,000 lbs gross.

You do know that the final drive ratio effectively changes each of the gears in the transmission, lower gears will make each gear more efficient. And then you could use the gears that you made unusable with the higher gearing! If it worked the way you said then the manuf would recommend that to tow a certain amount of weight you would lock out Ome of the top gears for that particular weight rating!

RE: Most scenic rv campground in Glacier

I haven’t been there, but been by it and my buddy stayed last year. The West Glacier KOA is amazing.

RE: Tried towing after new tires & algnment...it did not go well

I really hope by now the tires have a had a chance to firm up from the heat cycles.

RE: Iginuity at it best

An even better solution is an Idaho Tote or swivel wheel trailer.

RE: Buying a new class A

Anything later with the V-10 and 6 speed will work great. The new V-8 and 6 speeds are reporting to be very good with better fuel mileage. With a budget of $250k you should be able to find a very nice used diesel that will be better quality than almost any high end gas MH. With that said and in your position I would go diesel. The ride will be much better and so will the power and mileage.

RE: Rubber bumper suspension stops

Those aren't stops. they are suspension bumpstops. and will compress when under load. is the 5`er hooked up? The pic is with a gooseneck trailer hooked up ..... about 5k lbs of pin weight. Then that’s exactly where they should be.

RE: H44 recall

I wouldn’t worry about after all this time. In fact because it hasn’t been done is probably why it’s not having issues. I wouldn’t bother with it.

RE: If you bought your RV on payments from General RV.

Ok people. The numbers (payments months) were changed after the people signed. They signed for 240 months and then after the customer left they changed it to 120 months with a balloon payment after the 120 months. To me it sounds like a salesman and the finance guy had something going. Not sure if General RV is involved, but they cut their own throat when they said “we didn’t do anything wrong”! Sorry, but your name is at the top of the paper work, so you definitely have a big part in it. Hopefully General RV steps up and figures it out and makes it right for their customers. It looks like the contract was altered after it was executed. I am just confused on the end game. Are these cases where the finance department could not get approval without a big balloon payment? Maybe a bigger kick back if it is not a straight amortizing loan. Just curious what the motive was. Are you sure it was altered? The customer's copies show the 119 and 1 payment. Indeed it is stamped over the 240, but why didn't the customers question this? Like I said they changed it after they signed. So they never went back and checked.

RE: Holes in exhaust

Are these he holes where a small heat shield was welded at one time? if so then I would take it somewhere and have them weld up the holes. the factory pipe is far better than any aftermarket garbage you can buy. My V-10 Excursion did the same thing. I welded up the small holes and never had a problem.

RE: Tongue jack grinding

Not sure if it’s the same issue, but my Atwood started making sounds (grinding) which progressively got louder. Took it apart and found the screws mounting the motor were loose reinstalled with LP tire and never had the problem again.
