RE: Does RV antifreeze go bad?

Sealed Yes. Unsealed, I wouldn't trust it. Whatever you do, don't dump it on your lawn unless you want a big dead grass area. Don't ask me how I know.

RE: New tires for my 16K fifth wheel

What I've learned over the years is that when you start to question whether you should replace something that very well could cause damage if it failed, then replace it. The peace of mind alone is worth it. I try to never start a sentence with "I should have......." and that's what you would be doing if you experience a failure with those tires.

RE: Multiple blowouts in short time

Our trailer weighs roughly 12,000 fully loaded and we drive 65 - 70 tops. They didn't mention replacing rims, only bearings and hubs. How do you know your trailer weighs roughly 12,000 fully loaded? Have you taken it to a CAT scale or some other scale to have a good idea of the weight? How do you know you aren't way over weight?

RE: Battery question

Are you unplugging shore power, then waiting several hours so the batteries can rest before testing the voltage using both the RV system and handheld meter?

RE: Solar

I have the same situation. I have a 200W suitcase solar and my new 5th wheel has solar prep on the roof. I just don't use the roof prep and I connect to the battery like I always did although I really should put a wall mounted plug rather than feeding the cord through the front storage door where my battery is. The wall plugs are cheap and it would be easy enough to install one.

RE: tires

Goodyear Endurance 16" E rated tires are on my new 2021 Grand Design Reflection 5th wheel. I know Jayco has been putting them on even their single axle trailers for the past 3 years at least. My buddy bought a little 2017 Jayco and it has the Goodyear Endurance 15" D rated tires.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

My local LOWES has regular Blue DEF for $12.98 and Platinum Blue DEF for $19.98 in the 2.5 Gallon box

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

It sounds good. I'm interested in learning what the cost will be and it would be nice if the shelf life was greater than the 18 months regular Blue DEF provides.

RE: Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers

I don't have a bumper on my RV. That's why I will be using a hitch clamp and keeping the weight down. My receiver is only rated for 300 lbs. so with the weight of the cargo carrier, that leaves me with 150-200 lbs. max availability.

RE: Question on Jayco cargo carrying capacity

FWIW, our Big Country weighs 14,000 dry w/ max weight of 16,000. Fully loaded, we have 1,980 lbs of "stuff" for a road ready weight of 15,980! Whew!! Don't pack a lunch and thermos of coffee. You'll be maxed out! :)

RE: Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers

I'd think you'll get a LOT of side to side wobble on such a wide carrier...... be prepared for that. I plan on using a hitch clamp which should eliminate that wobble.

RE: Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers

500 lbs on a hitch? I won't have more than 150-200 lbs on the carrier.

RE: Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers

I'm ok with the weight limit. I just want the extra width.

Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers

Does anyone know who sells 72" cargo carriers that mount on the hitch on the back of RV's? Doing a Google search, the biggest I can find is 60".

RE: Rancho Shocks

Rancho shocks are part of the Z71 package on Silverado's. I had them on my 2015 and I have them on my 2020

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

Snip... If AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon wanted to provide truly unlimited data with no caps, no throttling, no anything, at a reasonable price, they would do it themselves. They don't need resellers to sell their product. They already have! Check out Visible by Verizon. I have been on their network for the past year and have had no place that was not covered. Unlimited minutes, texts, and data with no speed cap ever. $40/month all in. No extra charges at all. Barney Except according to the Visible website there can be restrictions. In very small print it says.... *In times of traffic, your data may be temporarily slower than other traffic. **WiFi calling available on select devices. +Mobile hotspot speeds capped at 5 Mbps and limited to one tethered device at a time. I'm sure it's a very good plan but it not truly unlimited. There's always a catch.

RE: Border closure extended

I have a neighbor who is Canadian with dual citizenship. His two sisters live in the Toronto area. The word on the street up there is that the border won't open until after the new year sometime. I can't confirm any of that. It's just what my neighbors sisters told him they were hearing. Take it for what it's worth.

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

In my opinion, all of these so called "unlimited" third party resellers are doing something shady. It might not be illegal but the real providers figure out what these resellers are doing and either cancel their ability to sell the plans or make it too expensive. Then the resellers find some other avenue or loophole to continue their business. Then it's Rinse and Repeat. If AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon wanted to provide truly unlimited data with no caps, no throttling, no anything, at a reasonable price, they would do it themselves. They don't need resellers to sell their product.

RE: Real-life experience blocks to aid 6-point leveling system

I found that I would lift my tires off the ground on many occasions when on uneven ground without using the leveling blocks. I don't want my tires off the ground EVER!
