RE: Need hitch advice please.

You talked about sway then about your weight distribution; two different things. Get the trailer level and you want weight distributed to the front. Use sway control bars to control sway. You should have someone knowledgeable help you because if you get sway and there’s not enough weight to the front of your truck you’ll have problems. You’ll also need to know how to control the sway from your brake controller without losing control. Get someone from your local dealer to show you how to set everything up properly.

RE: Personal property ins.

If you belong to a special musicians FB group ask them. Usually they have great information that can help.

RE: Open Range slide issue

The popping you hear is either the gear teeth breaking or the chain slipping on the missing teeth. You will need to change out the gear motor. I had to have the main slide motor changed two years ago. You could do it yourself via YouTube. The tech that changed mine said just make sure you mark the chain where the teeth sit to make sure it is set exactly the way it should. He suggested using white-out. I have an extra motor in case it goes out where i can't get a tech. Good luck

RE: AC leak, help!

YouTube how to replace (just want to remove) the AC. It should just be two pieces with 4 bolts. Very easy to remove the top half so it can be resealed. That’s the easy part. Rot will be your worst.

RE: New 5th Wheel Driver

I'd recommend you do nothing to the truck. But, you might want an Airborne pin on the 5th wheel. I've heard it does good for the ride of the trailer.

RE: Buying from private party in California

California is beyond weird when it comes to taxation on vehicles. Not sure how it works for private sales, but if you buy from a California dealer and want to title it out of state the dealer has to have an employee drive the vehicle to a neighboring state before you take possession, otherwise you are on the hook for state sales tax and the dealers aren't going to risk their licenses buy winking and nodding that you took delivery out of state. I have done it twice since California is the best place to get high end sports cars and I have a home in a no sales tax state. One time, the dealer even took a picture of me and their driver swapping keys under the "Welcome to Nevada" sign (I drove a dealer car and their driver drove my car) The savings are came close to 5 figures each time. If it was me, and the seller either didn't know or didn't care, I would get the title and a bill of sale from them and high tail it out of the People's Republic being careful to not attract undo attention by testing the performance limits of the new RV. Arizona couldn't care less about how you got the vehicle, they just want their ounces of flesh when you get your Arizona registration and plates. If you get permission from the owner to drive the rig until you get home then have him cash the purchase check you’ll be good. Cops won’t care; it’s the DMV that’s trying to get the fees.

RE: Dually towing TT

In an emergency if the trailer is swaying you can just tap the brake controller to bring it back in line as you slow down. I'd recommend the sway control.

RE: Security Camera needs replacement

Look at Amcrest cameras. $80 each, wireless except for electrical. Scan the barcode on the back and it downloads to your phone.

RE: Trailer brake advice

Another option is to ask your RV dealer if there is one you could borrow. When I got my 5th wheel in my new truck I had the old Prodigy and gave it to the owner and asked if he would give it to a young couple buying their first RV. Two years later I had work done and the tech mentioned putting in a Prodigy that an owner had given. Doesn't hurt to ask to just borrow one.

RE: Jury Duty

We retired and moved to a small town in Texas. They sent me a jury summons while we were RV'ing so when we got home I called them and explained we travel quite a bit. Their reply, "I'll just take you off the list so you'll never have to worry". God, I love small Texas towns!

RE: Hauling generator on upcoming trip

I keep my generators (2 Honda's 2200) and the extended tank in my truck bed because I didn't want a generator bouncing down the road. As mentioned it will make the back end of the trailer heavier and whip up and down. Mine are fairly easy to get to for starting and I have bicycle locks and a tonneau cover to keep them from walking away.

RE: Sticky situation

You could try a eraser wheel (from Amazon). I used one to get decals off my new to me boat fiberglass. It did great without any damage to the boat.

RE: Slide out

It could be a piece of rubber or something got caught under it when it was closing.

RE: BEWARE Keystone Hideout

Might be worth a few dollars to have an attorney send them a letter. Unseen defects are usually covered for an additional time period. Good luck.

RE: Buying from out of state

The biggest problem with buying out of state is if you need warrantee work done, and you try to get it done from a local dealer, you'll go to the bottom of the work - and stay there Guy Not really. We went from CA to TX and bought our 5th wheel. Found it for a great price and awesome dealer. He held it a month until we made it there to look at it and without any deposit. We brought it back to CA and have had warranty work done, no problem. Dealer service centers understand work comes from anywhere and as long as the manufacturer is paying, they will repair. We had no problem with the purchase or warranty work.

RE: Truck Camper Jacks

I replaced mine with refurbished motors. I then took mine apart and lubed the inside (there’s instructions online). Never had a problem after that.

RE: Life is just Peachie!

Congratulations on retirement (I retired 4 times). Good choice on the FW and truck. Now your work will be all the RV maintenance we have to do to keep these things rolling.
