RE: Ram 2500 6.4 Hemi Towing a Fifth Wheel

I towed my current 12K GD 303RLS with a 2017 Ram 2500, 6.4 L Hemi. It did the job, but always at high revs, and drank A LOT of gas. Upgraded to to 2018 RAM 3500 CTD which also serves as my daily driver and am as happy as a pig in mud. Way better towing experience, uses less fuel, and don't have to listen to the engine screaming all the time. I am more relaxed while towing, and not constantly having to be thinking of how far the next gas station is located. If you have the means to go the diesel route as you mentioned, my advice would be to do it.

RE: Best Place to Sell Tow Vehicle

I'd put it on Craigslist. Yes, you may get some scam email, but so what? You know the ones to ignore. There is no more scammers on CL that there is FB. You can also try CarGurus.com, or take it to CarMax and have them give you an offer on it. An RV forum that has a for sale section would also be a good bet - I'd post it there just to see what if any interest it sparks. In the end, put it on multiple sites - like going fishing. I fish with multiple rods so there is a better chance of catching something.

RE: RV awning cleaning

I use Mold Armor on everything that gets moldy - awning, gaskets around cargo doors, propane tank cover. I spray it on and let it sit then rinse - no rolling the awning up, but suppose that doesn't hurt. Walmart, Lowes. https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/3570f1aa-bcd2-4821-b794-86c89801fc2f_1.9fec06cc3b21fa58a2e891075f250f30.jpeg?odnHeight=450&odnWidth=450&odnBg=FFFFFF

RE: Modern 1/2 ton tow vehicle question

Thank you all, for confirming what I thought. I'll be shopping for a 250 or 350 instead of a 150. Used prices are OK for what I'm looking for, so no worries on this end. Thanks! GregI had a 2500 Ram with the coil spring suspension in the rear - was not a bad ride at all.

RE: Air conditioning in new 5th Wheel

It may be as simple as looking at you thermostat - is it set to fan, or cool high auto?

RE: Ram 2500 Short Bed question

I have a 2018 Ram 3500 short bed - use the B&W Companion slider with the puck system. The kingpin does not contact my tailgate when slid back, nor do I get any contact with the bed rails. Yes - the camper will contact the cab when backing into tight places - I have to make a 90 backing into my driveway - ask me how I know... https://i.imgur.com/yfQFd7Cl.jpg height=480 width=640

RE: Fifth Wheel hitch question

You don't state what your truck is, but does your it have the factory installed puck system for a fifth wheel hitch? BTW, that hitch looks like a piece of junk to me. Maybe usable, but a newer one would perform better. And with that front end, you are more than likely to have contact with the cab if you don't have and use a slider - you state you have a short bed. I'd look into a B&W Companion slider - heavy, but no chucking. Yes it is manual, but doesn't come with a lot of the issues with an auto slider - do your research. Or you can look into the Anderson hitch which places the trailer almost a foot back and is very light weight. And people who say that they never used the slider function don't have a tight radius to make when backing. I don't use mine when backing into my storage space - but only because it a straight shot into it, and I only have to maneuver slightly. Good luck

RE: Remember the bike box?

Looks great - I have a Giant Talon mountain bike - not sure which model you have - but I'd love to have this setup. Looks like room to add a shelf above.

RE: People sure are getting petty with their park reviews

Those review sites are a total waste of my time. We go to North Beach Resort a lot - which is on the beach, and people complain about the sand getting in their camper, or the sand in general. Why spend minutes/hours of your life that you won't get back reading that?

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

So the guy working on your roof falls off and want's to sue your homeowners policy for his injuries - you avoid this by making sure he has the correct credentials and insurance since why would you want to pay for this? Campground is doing the same thing - not sure why it is an imposition to sign it. Would you sue the CG if you got hurt there? Or would your insurance cover it?

RE: Should I connect my sewer line when camping?

I usually don't hook it up until I need to, then leave it hooked up. But IMO, it's not a good idea to leave the gray water valve open. Why? Because even though you may be wiping dishes/pans out with paper towels before washing in the sink, there is still food waste that will sit on the bottom of your tank when the water runs out. Better to let it sit/float in water - besides, how big of a deal is it to open a dump valve when the tank is full? We use paper plates a lot but still use paper towels to wipe out pans before washing. Secondly, when leaving camp, it is a good idea to dump the black tank first, then the gray which will rinse the hose of any particles that will be left behind.

RE: Tacoma for an F150

We found a 2018 F150 in really good shape with integrated trailer brakes and trailer backup assist. We had enough value in the tacoma to put down a decent down payment and my payments will be less than what I'm paying now for the smaller truck. So we'll have a solid and safe tow vehicle. I really appreciate everyone taking the time to help me out with this. Missed this - good deal - happy camping!

RE: RV Dealers on Florida and Southern Georgia

I purchased from General RV in Orange Park FL. Had a great no pressure salesman who happily took us around to visit any unit we mentioned an interest in - gave us bottled water, and didn't strand us in the middle of nowhere. His name is David Joiner - still works there AFAIK. I believe there is a General RV in Ocala. I'm overall satisfied with the sale and service after the sale. Unfortunately they don't seem to deal in anything that is over a couple years old. I might go and talk with them, though.I checked their website - seems like a few options you may find interesting - didn't include Ocala and Tampa - check those too.
