RE: Bedroom AC?

The bedroom A/C is attached to a 'race track' ducting system. However, if we open the vent on the A/C unit itself, then the cold are just comes directly out of the A/C unit and into the bedroom.

RE: proper hook up procedure?

We just use light weight plastic chocks on the 5er. We chock the tires every time.

Mud Flaps

We seem to splash mud onto the front of the 5er even when we are only driving on pavement. What kind of mud flaps can all you experts recommend that will prevent this? Thanks.

RE: storing power cord on new f'ver

We just lay the power cord in the bed of the pickup. It is the last thing we stow in preparation to travel and it is the first thing we plug in once we arrive at the new campsite. Putting it in the truck bed simplifies everything.

RE: Damaged RV on roads on way home from Florida, anyone else?.

We are from Minnesota and last winter we spent 6 months in our 5er. We travelled through the Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. This was our first extended stay as we recently retired. And we were totally shocked at the condition of roads in other states. Texas seemed the worst of the bunch, but they were all bad. The height difference between the road surface and any bridge seemed to be 6 inches at times. We couldn't understand how it could be so difficult to have a road and bridge end up with their surfaces even with each other. It didn't take long to realize we had to have any loose items sitting on the floor while travelling. And we worried about breaking suspension parts every time we hit one of those bridges.

RE: Hauling a motorcycle behind a 5er.

Thanks everyone. I didn't think it was a good idea either, but thought I'd check. We spent the winter in Texas hill country this past winter and we'll be heading down there next winter too. I'd sure like to figure out a way to get my bike down there.

Hauling a motorcycle behind a 5er.

Has anyone used a device such as the Slick Willy Motorcycle Hauler? My concern is that the pressure/tension would be in the opposite direction that the bike is designed to deal with. What do all you bikers out there think of this setup for hauling a Goldwing motorcycle?

RE: Ford Diesel trucks

Thanks everyone. This gives me good information with which to get started.

Ford Diesel trucks

We are in the market for a Ford Super Duty F350. And, I'm afraid the V10 gasser is going to retire. I have really enjoyed our current truck, but we just bought a GD Solitude which weighs 2500 lbs. more than our Cruiser did. We are looking for a used truck and my question is if there are any years of diesel Fords that I ought to avoid?

Washington DC area

This coming fall DW and I will travel to the Washington DC area, park our trailer and stay there until we have seen EVERYTHING. Well, perhaps not everything, but pretty dang close. We would like to find an RV park on the edge of DC that is in some proximity to rapid transit of some sort. In other words, we'll be going into to DC every day, but we don't want to drive there and try to park that big truck. Some type of commuter rail near the RV park would be ideal. Does anyone know of such a place to stay in the DC area?

RE: FL to Yellowstone 10 weeks out west what to do?

Park the trailer for this one; Bear Tooth Pass. Begin in Red Lodge, Montana and head towards Yellowstone NP. In addition to being an RVer, I'm also a biker and this road is ALWAYS listed in the top 10 biker roads in the country. I try to go over it every year.

RE: Samson Tires

Guess I should have included this information from the beginning. The tires are ST235/80R16 and GL285T. It looks like these tires were manufactured in 2016 or 2017.

RE: Samson Tires

So are you saying that these tires are worthless from the moment they are new and forever there after? And I should just get rid of them immediately if not sooner?

RE: Samson Tires

Well there are two dates based on my limited experience. One is 1716 and the other is 14-17. How can I tell which one is "the" one?

Samson Tires

We just bought a used Grand Design Solitude 5er (369RL) that has Samson tires on it. The original owner pulled the trailer from the dealer's lot to a place on a lake nearby. It remained there until we bought it and the tires were kept out of the sun. So the tires look like new, but they are made in China. All I have heard about tires made in China is that I ought to get rid of them as soon as possible. Has anyone had positive experiences with this brand of tire? What is the advice of all you experts?

RE: Picking up a new 5er

We would prefer any complete list as opposed to a short, quick list. We want to check out every detail about the 5er and prefer not to trust our memory in order to do that. So, if you have a check list, we'd like to see it. Thanks.

Picking up a new 5er

Does anyone have a decent checklist for use when picking up a new trailer. We have one, but a few heads are better than one etc. I know I'll forget a few things if I do it by myself. Thanks in advance.

RE: Roaming Rvers McKinney Rally Sept. 13-15

How do I get information on what Roaming Rvers is? I googled it and nothing but dog stories came up.

RE: 6 Point Self-Leveling Systems

Thanks everyone. This helps with some decisions we will be making soon.

RE: Honda Generator EU2000

With ECO off the generator runs smoothly, but much faster and louder. I ended up putting an entire container of Seafoam in the gas tank, not all at the same time, but over a 4 hour period, and some more gas. It still isn't perfect, but it is so very much better. I'm good to go here. Thanks for your help.
