RE: Hook up those safety chains

This is very hard to believe, Some one was looking out for them that day. Speedy recovery to the couple.

RE: Converter replacement

Best Converter without a doubt. Plug and play, excellent customer service . Call them, tell them what you need. fixed my issues with my batteries boiling in my Class C. Totally agree Best Converter is the way to go, very simple lower portion replacement of your WFCO. Did it myself and it works well. Randy at Best is the “Best” very helpful and will answer all of your questions if you have any. No more boiled batteries for me now also.

RE: Getting started on our new RV

In Canada there is a company in Ottawa, Ontario with outlets all across the country that sells all kinds of net hardware items, drawer slides, closet stuff, etc. You probably have the same type of think in the US. You can built your own drawers, sliders, etc. I built my on battery pull out trays. While Moreryde stuff is pretty cool it is also a bit expensive. Building your stuff to suit your conditions is quite satisfying and makes your space more functional

RE: How to run exterior cable for wired backup camera?

I know you are specifically looking for a wired backup camera, but I can't help but throw this out there..... You can get a wireless backup camera and monitor for ~$150. Since you probably want to mount the camera up high, you likely (right??) have rear upper running lights. You can tap off power from those and mount the camera right under the running lights. Then, to "turn on the camera" from up in the cab, all you need to do is have your running lights on. (Personally, I always drive with the lights on just for extra safety/visibility). Time to complete the job...less than 1 hour. -Chris This is exactly how we did it on our unit also and it works fine, camera just below centre light on the fifth wheel back wired into running light above, on and off with truck running lights. Excellent positioning for rear views, backing up etc. Only time camera is less effective is if you are backing into the shadows in a site. With the camera aimed properly we can even see our bike rack on the rear of the trailer while travelling.

RE: Fantastic fan or maxxair ?

We installed a Maaxair 0-6200K fan in our 5er last year. We did not get the remote control model as there was talk that the remote had to be right in line with the fan to operate it. Also the automatic rain cover closing option is supposedly not good if you were to leave your pet in the unit on a hot day and rain would automatically shut the vent and allow no air or cooling for the pet. We like our fan and it works very efficiently with its 10:speeds, you can set it at a certain temperature to automatically come on and shut off, it can be used as ceiling type fan even if the rain cover is closed. While a bit of versatility is lost by having to manual operate the push button controls on the fan for fan speed and opening and closing the rain cover as opposed to a remote, to date this has not bothered us at all. One of the disappointing items for us was the roof vent frame on our unit was metal and the Maxxair replacement one is plastic that was a bit of a bummer. But overall the fan and cover quality, ease of installation, good performance make it a good choice. We are very happy with it so far.

RE: Oregon Coast Camping

As previously stated the sites listed at Beachside are awesome but even with early bookings are hard to get because of their popularity. Get the Oregon Coast Mile by Mile book and check out the areas that you might be most interested in. The Oregon state park reservation system works well and you can see actual pictures and descriptions of most sites at any particular park. We have been to the Oregon coast 3 different times and if you would like some more particular info please feel free to PM me.

RE: Vortex II fans

We installed one in the bathroom of our fiver last year(Vortexll) and it definitely works much better than the tiny fans that are installed in most bathrooms. They have went up in price quite sharply since we installed ours last year. The three speeds work well, we usually just run at medium and the Vortex ll is also reversible. Easy to install and can run off the same power source that supplied your original fan.. Ours has performed well so far.

RE: MORryde sliding cargo tray in the front pass-through bay

My 5er came with this sliding tray option and it is something that now I would not be without. Ours slides out the same amount on both sides which makes it very simple to load and unload any stored item. Our basement also has space under the sliding tray approx. 8 inches deep which is handy for storing items that are not so frequently used. I built an area in the dead centre of the sliding tray and carry my Honda 2000 generator in there. The sliding tray when purchasing a unitmay seem like too expensive an item, Definitely It Is Not.

Well it Finally Happened

After over 10 years of great service the Adco cover for our 5er succumbed to an unbelievable wind storm we had this Wednesday night past. The front of the cover got badly torn (it was starting to get pretty thin already) Looking for your suggestions on which model, brand of cover would be the best to purchase. We cover our 5er for the winter months from End of October to mid March each year. We want something that will last hopefully as long as our current one did. Thanks for your thoughts.

RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

Had a Webber Q now for 2 years, really like it so far. Removed the regulator (very simple) so that I could attach it to the propane connection on my fiver.

RE: 2021 Chevy Steps up the Max Tow Rating

Sure doesn’t look like my 2009 Silverado. It is very different front end look for sure. With the big CHEVROLET across the front not hard to mistake it for something else. maybe ?? maybe?? Who knows?
