RE: Andersen and 6'4" Ram

When I am not towing the tonneau cover is hiding the hitch, although if they want it ,they will get it, but with a locked tailgate they will have to cut the tonneau cover out of the way or break open the tailgate. It won't be easy. As far as the adapter, I suppose someone will steal anything , but I can't imagine those adapter being in high demand. Taking the time ,and having the allen wrench ,and wrenches to remove just doesn't sound likely. I think that lock is mostly to prevent the theft of the fifth wheel, and here again I like my odds they don't have an Andersen hitch . Agreed again, however, having had a theft or two, I feel better knowing the "house" and related "stuff" will be there when I get back. Perceived security is worth it. To me. As for the "hijacker" I'll bet he can't get that big heavy hitch out of his truck bed and re-installed in 15 minutes. I can. Tools/equipment required is, as you know, a torque wrench. One of the reasons I bought an AUH. I've got a short bed with tool box and I can use it easily. I have the same hitch but the 20k version.... 153# ... 2 slip pins to remove the head at 75#... 4 slip pins to un hook the lower portion 78#... possibly 10-15 minutes total IF I have a beer in between removing the top and bottom portions

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

your limiting factor will be the PIN WEIGHT.... The amount of weight you can legally carry in the bed compared to the pounds you can legally tow behind you. like stated, check the sticker on your pillar/door jamb to see what the payload is

RE: Andersen and 6'4" Ram

"Secret Squirrel" :B NOW your showing your age.... the LAST episode of the aired in 1966! I actually think that I may still have a comic book with Secrete Squirrel ? I was graduating from high school that year, had other things on my mind, but it was not comic books :B I WAS 2 !

RE: 5th week hitches

YES.. ** As long as the trailer does not have a capture plate for a Superglide... The "King Pin " is standard and can be towed by a commercial truck as well.

RE: Hughes autoformers

I use the Hughes that also has the surge protection ( RV220-50SP )... I added the hard wire hit as well so I did not have to wrestle that during set up and break down... they are NOT exactly light... ** AND ** less I have to worry about walking away

RE: Fed up with tire blow outs!!!

Here's the 2 options I can get: Get 14" D load rated tires - Approx $500.00 Get 15" D load rated tires, new rims - $900.00 These would be the Goodyear Endurance tires.Goodyear has Endurance ST205/75R14 D load. 2040 lbs @65psi if you don't want to upgrade to 15" I was told this morning that Goodyear no longer makes the Endurance in the 14" My daughter just purchased a new 2021 TT and it came with the cheap China 14" Tire... I just got her 4 of the Endurance at 14"... 100% improvement over any stock tire the manufacturers are dishing out....

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

I just drove a 150 mile trip with the Redwood... 1st part was somewhat light traffic with 65 mph zone.... went with the flow at 65.. middle part was heavy, jut below the city, I did 55-60 in the right lane Last part was moderate to light, again, stayed with the flow which was around 60-65 depending ... For me, it all depends on the traffic flow, road surface, and weather conditions. Properly equipped that is....

RE: Generator storage for travel trailer

Get one of these - Lock And Load If your TT does not have a rear hitch, fabricate one, or add one on the front of your vehicle..

RE: 2020 F350 with 6.7 diesel

I now have 3500 miles on my 2020 F-350/SRW/Long Bed/4X4/6.7/10 speed I have a gvw of 12,400 and a payload of 4562# I tow a 16,500# Fifth Wheel with a smile on my face! The combo of the improved 6.7 along with the 10 speed is NIGHT and DAY better than my old 2015 6.7..... I am averaging right around 11 now with my trailer in tow, where I was at 8.5 to possibly 9.... Without hills, I am averaging 12 if I keep it under 65 on the flats. ** UPDATE ** Just took a 175 mile trip and averaged 11.5.. that included all the secondary streets and highway... I had the cruise set at 64
