RE: Morryde Step Above

The MoRyde steps are a case of the manufacturers doing something for their benefit and getting the customers to think it's done for theirs. I totally agree! Easier to install and no cut out in the side for the folding steps. However, the manufactures haven't taken advantage of the opportunity to place an entrance door anyplace which may offer up some new, innovative floor plans.

RE: Slide topper for full wall slide

I have the same rig. Never felt the need for slide toppers on the LS. The top lack of a flange across the top and the seal will allow water and debris to fall off upon retracting the slide. Congrats on the rig. We love ours. They are quality, well built units.

RE: Pledge

Interesting. Check out the list of ingredients and what each does:

RE: Living Room Ceiling Lights

ITC is a huge manufacturer of RV lights. I got exact replacements on Ebay.

RE: Living Room Ceiling Lights

Most likely, the lenses just rotate not even a quarter turn from the base. If like the led lights I've seen, the entire assembly has to be replaced. No bulb depending on the brand of light.

RE: Evergreen RV records

I have a 2014 Lifestyle fifth wheel. Evergreen was the parent company. Anyway, inside a kitchen cabinet door is a build list including colors specific to my fiver.

RE: Any Night Stands?

Check out Lifestyle and some Carriage models. Our LS has a full night stand with drawers on one side and a cut out in the wall for small items on the other side.

RE: Fifth wheel suspension maintenance

I have had the heavy duty wet bolt kit since 2011. I grease it before every trip. Most my trips are under 400 miles round trip. On longer trips, I grease it again before the return. I'm amazed how dirty the old grease is that gets pushed out in such a short time. Just goes to show you how much movement is going on in the shackles.

RE: Carriage 5 th who roof reseal

I invested in the RV Flex Armor roof for my 2014 fiver. It is a very tough, maintenance free roof and I felt worth for a rig I plan to keep.

RE: 5th wheel tires

If you are running full 110 inflation on a rig that only needs 80 it is overkill. If airing based on weight carry on. If I recall, GY says to run a tire at max speed rating it must be run at max sidewall pressure. Yes???

RE: New 5th Wheel Manufacturer

So far many RV's like Hartland products are glitz and glammor with inadequate engineering incorporated for travel and endurance. It is difficult to "polish a turd". I fully support entreprenureship if it enhances things that would contribute to a better and improved product. I will sit back and evaluate this new company as they progress. I really hope they come up with a product that moves the RV industry forward. BTY many management folks in the RV industry have been quoted in the past that the reason that past RV manufacturers go out of business was because they put too much quality into the product that diminished the profitability. They felt the public wanted inexpensive rather than quality. I totally agree. We have seen it before. Theres nothing special about their engineering, frame, or otherwise. Just another cookie cutter like all the others. Since the demise of NuWa, Carriage/Lifestyle, Excel they are all built the same. That goes for Vanleigh, too. Throw a beautiful pint job on it and it's the icing on the cake for the typical American buyer.

RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

JK, I think they are very well built. Its a carry-over from Carriage with some improvements. They built their own frames, are hung wall construction and fit and finish is excellent. I ordered this one and it will be 6 years old in March. I invested over $6k in the RV Flex Armor maintenance free forever roof knowing I plan to keep this rig. It's never been in the shop from day one. This is the first year we have NOT attended the Tampa RV Super Show. We have gone for years just for fun and always walked away feeling good about our LS fiver. Yes, there will always be trends in interiors, etc., but I want a solid foundation.

RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

Luxury would include a rear cap! I would put them right there with the Solitude by GD. Close but no cigar. Owning a Grand Design Solitude I can confirm it is far from Luxury, built the same with the same cheap parts as most everything else. Although its advertised as "full time ready" or something I would not want to full time in it. I suspect the OP was looking at one off prototypes built taking more care and time than units that will be built on a line by pieceworkers. I also suspect Alliance will be more of the same old mass produced, slapped together and shoved out the door product based on the owners background, just like the folks that started Grand Design had done. Get it off the ground, build up a base using creative marketing then sell out. That is Alliance's intent IMO. Time will tell. I totally agree. Why do the creators of Alliance RV think they will earn buyers trust when they have come from companies riddled with complaints. While I have no intentions of getting rid of by 2014, I still closely follow the market. I do not see one thing done differently or special about Alliance.

RE: 5th wheel tires

My 17.5 GY g114 are about to age out. For more than half the price the Sailuns have at least as good a reputation for service and longevity as the GY. I'm going Sailun this Spring.

RE: Coleman Airxcel 48000 series 15KHP

Thanks. I ordered that part number right from the manual. It came but it does not have enough terminals. The one in the unit says 06x13 at the bottom. The one sent says 03x18 and does not have enough terminals. So odd but then again, not really. LOL

RE: Coleman Airxcel 48000 series 15KHP

Heres a pic of the relay that I cannot find anywhere on line. I ordered the part number list in the Airxcel parts list, however, it does not have enough terminals.

RE: Coleman Airxcel 48000 series 15KHP

Thanks Doug. I replaced the entire control board and run capacitor. I ordered the relay but its is not the correct one nor can I find it. I have not replaced the thermostat but I do hear the thermostat click when the unit comes on and sends the temperature set-point. Thanks.

RE: Coleman Airxcel 48000 series 15KHP

Its a single unit/zone Coleman HP thermostat. Slider fan switch auto/on, a slider switch for cool - off - gas heat - elec HP heat. The thermostat is turning on the system in every mode including the gas heat but it is not turning on the compressor in cool or HP mode.

RE: Coleman Airxcel 48000 series 15KHP

Hi Doug, thanks for the response. I just went out and got on the roof. The only sounds coming from it is the fan running. No change in pitch, load, any clicking, etc. I noticed back at the end of October, while it was heating, I was not hearing it go into the reverse/defrost mode like I have heard it do in the past. Upon arrival at out next stop, it was no longer producing heat. Phil

RE: Coleman Airxcel 48000 series 15KHP

Yep, we have tried that in either mode and we do not hear any change in sound....just the fan running.
