RE: Tire Replacement Question

Instead of buying by name look at load ranges and go up a rating or two.

RE: 5th wheel tire review

Notice how many comments mention “load”. Upgrade to a higher load range tires and you’ll notice a big difference. I have G rated tires on my 5th wheel and have had great luck with them.

RE: Biting Insects

By far the best insect repellent is Ultrathon from Amazon. Until I found that my wife wanted to leave Texas

RE: Long distance purchase

If you think you’ll get better service because you bought there you might want to search this and other forums. 95% of RV’rs found they got crappy service no matter where they bought. And I’m speaking from experience. Better to get the best deal you can. I drove 2,000 miles to save several thousand dollars. A good mobile RV repair guy is worth it.

RE: Outdoor speakers leaks, 2nd toy hauler same problem

Should’ve had marine speakers all along for any outdoor speakers. Replace and use plumbers putty behind for the seating. Easy peasy.

RE: Removable 5th wheel hitch?

My BW came off but left the rails. I just used some 2x4”s then a 4’ plywood and put my camper on top. Never had any problems.

RE: Newer 5ers, Slider Hitch Required For Short Beds?

It depends on your truck and trailer. I had a short bed and did fine with my 5th wheel but had to be very careful when turning. I never had a problem but also didn’t turn a few times because I knew I’d have a problem.

RE: Denial on claim - need someone from GS to contact me

Of all th horror stories we read on RV forums I’m surprised people are still wasting their money on extended warranties. Good luck

RE: BedRug with hitch

I cut out around the rails and you really need to Velcro it down so the wind doesn’t make it flap and it could tear. I love my bed rug though.

Email replied. Good luck

RE: Backup cam - not sure what to do with it

I use one of those on my 36’ fifth wheel trailer with a few inexpensive add ones. Pm me if you want the list and include your email. I have a pic of all the items needed I can send you.

RE: Good Sam annual inspection

When I was young and our first TT the salesman conned us into a “extended warranty “ and we had to let the dealer do an annual inspection. The came back and said there’s a few spots on the roof needing caulking (8 months after purchase) and wanted $300! Two months later I got refunded the “warranty” and have been doing my own inspections and maintenance. Those are rip-offs.

RE: Extended Service Plan while under warranty

Those are great questions that probably should have been asked before deciding. Hopefully you’ll come back later to update everyone who may be thinking of buying a service plan for their RV.

RE: Rear View Camera - Cell Phone Hotspot as Wifi Booster?

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 Camera - Cell Phone Hotspot as Wifi Booster?

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? https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/type-s-backup-camera-with-distanceaudio-alert-5-in-0350160p.html#srp (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.) https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/reload-wired-backup-camera-with-parking-assist-system-pas-4-3-in-0354065p.html#srp 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 used...how 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.
