RE: CPAP Battery for Boondocking

Bipap machine user for many years. Insurance doesn't cover battery power. You can't use just any battery either. The machines are very touchy. If you damage them from hooking them up to a non approved power source, you own a paperweight they won't replace. They sell battery powered machine you can buy on your own, $700-$1000+. Or you buy their battery packs from the medical supply company. Read your contract you signed with them. Very important.

RE: Good Sam Tire and Wheel insurance

I think you might be misunderstanding the insurance. It pays you an amount AFTER you replace a blown tire. It doesn't send someone to you when you are on the side of the road. It was given to me when I purchased my 5th wheel new. 9 months later, I had 3 of the china bombs go on me on a long trip. They sent me checks for the replacement tires I put on (which were much better tires than the unit came with). So my experience was they were responsive, paid in a reasonable amount of time, etc. But if you buy good tires, probably not worth the money....

RE: NH has closed all lodging facilities

In the article I read, the Gov said this order does not apply to campgrounds in NH. Below is from WMUR "Sununu said the restrictions are another step in trying to slow the spread of COVID-19, particularly from other states. The restrictions include rentals from services such as Airbnb but does not include campgrounds."

RE: Interstate 91 to NH White Mountains

When going north/south, no problem. But you will find going east/west in VT/NH there's no great routes.

RE: Tire pressure monitors

I've had them for 5 years and love them. A couple pounds at the begining of the season and no problems after.

RE: Moose Hillock, NH

Not that it's a big deal, but you should at least know, it's a religous campground. Have a couple rules other campgrounds don't. Like no booze outside of your campsite.

RE: Southeast Massachusetts to Nashville TN

Done the north south trip 3 times now. Went 95 (over the George Washington) whole way once, NEVER DO THAT AGAI!. Went over the Tappen Zee the second time. Went all the way out to 81 and skipped the Tappen Zee the third. Skipping the Tappen Zee with the 5th wheel was WAY better!

RE: 5th wheel hitches

Ok, Ok, now I'm confused. I thought these goose neck type hitches were causing structural damage to 5th wheel trailers???????

Electrical Question

On my last trip this year, when I got to the campground, I noticed my C02 alarm chirping. I had already plugged in to shore power when I noticed it. Thought nothing of it. I got home, plugged in, and same thing. Again, wasn't sure why that was happening. Went out yesterday to move the trailer for winter storage. Hooked up to my truck, plugged into my truck, and no power in unit to raise the landing gear. I re-plugged into shore power and landing gear raised with no problem. (also, noticed c02 alarm chirping again.) Could this be because of a dead battery? Was thinking last night and it is the original battery that came with the unit. Any help is appreciated!

RE: Hooking up Fifth Wheel

If you do have trouble unhitching, try putting your tv in nuetral and keeping the trailer brake engaged. I never have trouble hitching, but at times when not level, unhitching can be problomatic.

RE: ATC 5th Wheel MSRP vs Purchase Price

Take the make and model number. Just do a simple internet search on it. You will find the prices all over the place for the same model. It's crazy!

RE: Recent Good Sam Roadside Assistance Experience

MDKMDK, I disagree they would try to get you to a safe location first. A couple years ago, I had a tire snap all the lug nuts on a tire and fly off my 5th wheel. I called and they asked if I was in a safe location. I told them definatly not! I was just outside of New Haven CT, 0730 (Rush Hour), where the highway went from 4 lanes down to 3. GS told me I had to get the unit to a safe place. Not them! They suggested I chain the axle with the missing tire up before I tried to move the trailer. Don't know about your mechanical ability, but way above my paygrade! I was lucky that a Conn Highway Dept safety assist vehicle with the employee of the year showed up to get us out of that very dangerous location.

RE: Help a Newbie, question about gas vs. diesel

I pulled a 10K 5th wheel with a 2012 F250 gasser for 2 years. Upgraded to a 2017 F350 diesel and will never look back! The F250 had air bags in it, but it was outright scarey whenever we went over a bridge. Both units woulds start to porpoise. Up hills, it would wind in lower gears. Once pulling with the 350, it all went away!

RE: Bangor ME to Franconia NH to Freeport ME

Rte 2 isn't the best route for an RV. But your only other choice is to go all the way down 95, take 101 over to 93, then north on 93. Obviously longer, but much friendlier when pulling a trailer, especially a bigger one.

RE: Basic 5th wheel towing questions.

Just a quick point about the 150-250 ride versus the 350-450. I first started towing our 11k pound 5th wheel with a F250 with air bags. It pulled alright, but when we went over some bridges at highway speeds, both units would start to porpus. A few times at scary points. Switched to a f350 dually, not a problem now....
