RE: Rear View with ? Camera ?

Good luck then. I use mine between my TC and 5th wheel trailer. Paid $60 for all the equipment on Amazon. Ya gotta link to that $60 camera from Amazon? That would be very helpful. PM me; I have a screenshot of the items I can send to you.

RE: Rear View with ? Camera ?

PM me if you want a list of what I had a camera mounted on the back of my TC and a monitor with removable wire. All bought off Amazon. Thanks very much, but I think I want a wireless one. I want to be able to shift it over between the TC and the Class C easily. This one is on sale locally, would it be any good? I see you connect it to your reverse light. To have it on while driving, would any 12v source work instead? (In US dollars that would be about 3/4 of what it costs in Can money) It seems to be similar to what is in our car with the lines and the beeping. It says its range is 10m (30 ft and a bit) so the Class C is almost that long. Would it work from the back of the C to the dash? It says it has a 5" display and also says 3.5" screen size. What does that mean? I just want a live picture out the back while driving (including while backing up). I see some of these have "loops" and they record. Don't think I need that. It says to mount it by your licence plate. Would it be easy for somebody to steal? Comments please! (They have one for a bit more (not on sale) that has wires. Not sure if enough wire or how I would route a wire.) Good luck then. I use mine between my TC and 5th wheel trailer. Paid $60 for all the equipment on Amazon.

RE: Tire Pressure

So, if they add an additional camp chair or another flat of water bottles, do they weigh the trailer and inflate accordingly? Why make it so difficult? Just inflate to max cold recommendation and be done.

RE: 1/2 ton truck towing question

Why be unsafe and uncomfortable/stressed towing? As you already experienced, buy a truck for your next RV, not the current one. I ended up getting a one ton for my 5th wheel then later added a truck camper. Glad I did because I didn't have to upgrade trucks.

RE: Incline and dips - determining clearance

A good rule of thumb is 6" of clearance between the truck bed rail and bottom of the trailer. I have 7" and have never had a problem. Be careful and go slow.

RE: Purchasing to know if it is stolen or not?

When you go look at the camper just take a picture of the serial number then call you local police department and ask them to run it to see if its stolen; When I was a cop we did this all the time. We just wouldn't give any information other than that. Then if you buy it, do up a bill of sale with the seller's information. Very easy to do.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

you don't say what you're putting the tires on but another thing most people don't think about is load rating. I moved up two load ranges and have much better peace of mind towing my 5th wheel.

RE: Trailer Backup Camera & Tow Mirrors

I installed a rear camera for my 5th wheel and it is good when passing another truck or car; if I see it in that camera I know I'm clear to move over. When I back into a site I can see if there is something I need to avoid. When on the freeway I can see if any vehicles are coming up behind me.

RE: Tow King Tires

Also look at the load range of those tires and upgrade higher if you can.

RE: LED Awning light failed

When my trailer was in for warranty repairs a tech turned the awning light on while it was rolled up. Drained my battery and I didn't know why. Burned out the lights too. By the time I found it I was out of warranty and didn't want to wait on the dealer 6 months to replace. I can't remember the strip but I have a different make than yours. Good luck

RE: Accident with tow vehicle right before big camping trip?

My buddy hit a deer a week before a big family vacation. I loaned him my truck so he could still take his 5th wheel. It’s good to have friends.

RE: Truck Campers and Boating?

I either dropped off the camper or launched with the camper on, depending on how long I was camping. I put a camera on the back of my camper so I could launch with the camper on. Never had a problem.

RE: Sleeping on air mattress equipped sofa bed ??????

For their comfort I'd suggest the foam mattress topper (3" or 4") and store it each morning. After about two nights they will regret the air mattress convenience for the comfort. Their backs will appreciate it.

RE: New RV delivery walk-through

Look online for a list to ask learn about. I’d suggest video recording the tech showing you everything.

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.
