RE: Quality control?

When I was referring to high end, I was referencing what the industry considers high end at $100K+ 5th wheels. That is a big laugh. High End has shifted to considerable higher in price. To truly get high end you need to be in the $150,000 to $200,000 range. $100,000 is now a upper-medium cost 5th wheel. And having been in sales I found you had to know as much about your competitor's equipment as you did your own in order to do your job. Ken Regardless of what you, I, or the industry considers "high end" these shouldn't be on display having issues that are being seen in my opinion. At the end of the day it is still a considerable amount of money being spent even on a $100,000 RV.

RE: Quality control?

The one prefaced it prior to us going in, saying they had issues they still needed to work on. The other said it shouldn't have been like that, however would be repaired prior to being sold.

RE: Quality control?

Very True...It should start with sales reps learning their products.

RE: Quality control?

I'm sure there were more issues. One of the brands we looked at 3 units, and all 3 had issues. When I was referring to high end, I was referencing what the industry considers high end at $100K+ 5th wheels.

Quality control?

We spent last 2 weekends looking at new 5th wheels. Both brands we were looking at had numerous issues, from slides not working to torn vinyl flooring, seals on slides and trim hanging, to valances that had fallen. I would think the manufacturers would want things being gone over before either leaving the factory or before being shown at dealerships. Both were higher end RVs...I don't get it. I would estimate that out all of the RVs we looked at, more then half had issues.

Cedar Creek GM / President info

Looking to see if anyone has updated contact info for GM / President of Cedar Creek. The contact I had is a now a generic voicemail.

The wheels are 16," and are required to run at 110 psi per the manufacturer. I will probably just continue to use my aftermarket TPMS on the 5th wheel if I can't set them to the correct pressure in the truck. Silliest thing I’ve heard in a while. You really want your TPMS to alarm you at 109 psi? 1 psi under what you think it should be? ROFL No, he does NOT want it setting off the alarm constantly because the tires are 10PSI over pressure. Exactly...

I just watched a video showing how to set up factory TPMS for trailer on GM trucks. It says you can program (in the truck) tire pressures between 50 psi - 100 psi. My 5th wheel tires require 110 psi. Has anyone experienced a higher pressure beyond the 100 psi?

RE: Bed cover for 2022 F350 8" when NOT towing

I previously had a Pace Edwards Full Metal on my 2008 truck and it worked well. Just took delivery of my 2022, spoke to an accessory dealer that informed me that basically there are 2 companies that bought up all independent bed cover companies including Pace Edwards. This go around I went with Roll N Lock, as Pace Edwards didn't show any inventory would have to be built when ordered. My fear was if needing parts may be difficult to get, also went with Roll N Lock as recommended from 2 different accessary shops. Also there were limited options for an 8 foot bed. So far so good with Roll N Lock.

RE: Cedar Creek rear cap cracks

Shadows4 - I called the repair guy that originally did the repair for my dealership. He basically told me, he can't be responsible for anything beyond 1 year. I also called someone I was put in contact with that does fiberglass / body work. He told me the issue was caused by not prepping the area properly, which would cause the fade and clear coat to peel. I haven't decided if I'm going to have it repaired yet or not, but one thing is for sure, I will not be taking it back to the guy the dealership uses...

RE: Portable Hitches

Truck is a 2006 Dodge Heavy 2500 with the Cummins diesel. Thanks. Long bed Pullrite Super Fifth. Short bed Pullrite Super Glide. For both Pullrite under bed mount gives you a clean bed when hitch is out. C.B. Agreed. For your truck there are not that many clean bed options. I had a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 with the short bed and a Pullrite Superglide. At the end of the year I pulled 8 pins and lifted the hitch out of the bed. It is easiest if you have a hoist as the hitch is not light. If no hoist it may cost you a beer for your helper. Not that heavy for two people. X3

RE: Fifth wheel length question

I went from a 28' Travel trailer, to a 38' 5th wheel, now have a 40' 5th wheel. I liked the 38'er over what I have now...would even consider a 36'.

GMC 3500 DRW

Anyone make any modifications to the tire valves on a GMC / Chevy 3500 DRW? Outer and inner wheel I find are difficult to air up and check do the location of valves on aluminum wheels. I am planning on adding extensions to inner wheels, but outer valve faces inward making access somewhat awkward.

RE: Small piece of gasket coming loose on frameless window

Do you know the brand of the window? You will probably get further contacting the window manufacturer rather then the RV manufacturer.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

We do not unhook for overnight stops when traveling long distance. One of the other reasons we went with a dually. We too unplug from the truck.

RE: New couch ideas ???

We purchased recliners at Costco. They were small enough to fit in place of the couch and the backs also come off.

RE: Cedar Creek rear cap cracks

When it was originally repaired, I presumed the repair would be good to go. If it was repaired properly, I shouldn't have to determine a warranty period at all.

RE: Cedar Creek rear cap cracks

Doug - You explained the exact procedure on how to repair from someone else I spoke too. What is the expectancy of the repair in your mine if the repair is done correctly should last as long as the rest of the cap. Also, not sure I'm following you with the paper trail, when I noticed it out of the gate, I brought it to dealer's attention, they made arrangements to repair. Bottom line is, it was not done properly and here I am.
