RE: aluminum flat bed

Not a very good idea on a short bed truck....all the farmers around here have the aluminum flat beds with goose neck hitches---don't know if they are 1/2 ton or larger but all say a short bed is to close to the cab and rides rougher also.

KD4 Said it well consider this also the DRW has 50% more rubber on the ground. How is that not be better? I bought my first DRW in 1985 and never went back. Same with the 3 axel trailer, once I had one I can't imagine looking back. That set up is so much more stable than a SRW and I don't understand the difference in daily use as other than being a little wider. You get used to that.

RE: Locked out of RV

Good Sam or Coach Net would take care of it OR call a lock smith

RE: New Mexico 'Quarantine" Requirements

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure......if everyone would cooperate we would have a lot less cases. People with the attitude of that person above are a big part of the problem.

RE: Step not retracting completely "jackhammering"

Pardon me for intruding on your post. Mine is working fine but the warning light on the dash don't go out. Step works fine and the light underneath goes out but the dash warning light stays on. Your situation can be cured with a new motor assembly that is about $40 from Auto Zone

RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

First you got a top shelf DP---Did you get the books with it? You got a lousy lock smith---he should have just picked the lock. I downsized from 40 to 36 2 years ago and have been doing this for over 50 years and trust me you will never know it all, never. I always get high end units like you have, current one is a Monaco. You have a lot to learn.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

I am 79 and drove my DP 400mi yesterday like nothing. I have always drove longer distances at times than others thought reasonable. Drove many times from Baltimore to Tampa--Clearwater only stopping once. Last long trip I drove a 45ft DP from CA to lower FL in 3 days and 2 nights.....Like said above it depends on you.

RE: GM HD Trucks Many with AWD instead of 4WD

I did away with the 4X4 F350 when I moved South. If it snows here it can sit but I do have a 4X4 F150 if I need to go that has got used very little. I agree it that 1% of the time when you need it

RE: Thoughts on this Truck

In 1999 I bought a new f350 drw that had come from Canada. I don't remember why I had to pull the instrument cluster exactly but something did not work and found a whole remanufactured cluster---it went down hill from there. Bent driveshaft, lights stayed on all the time, and on and on. After a prolonged battle the dealer took it back and gave me another that was flawless for 7 years. That was my experience but I never buy from a used car only dealer as they have no idea of the real history of the unit.

RE: buy from dealer or private seller

Cash talks & BS walks. Be surprised what a deal can be made when you “show them the cash”.

RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

I bought mine for $35,000. Been kept inside since new and shines like new. I have had it 2 years and only thing I have done to it is change oil etc and everything in it works. Have driven it about 4000 mi and am sitting in it in Bristol TN right now. 1998 Monaco 36ft 8.3 Cummins 6spd trans. 1 big slide Also came with a truck load of extras. Age don’t mean squat it’s condition that counts. They are out there. I found this one in WV in a front yard. I live in NC. Previous 40footer came from Maine. I used it for 10 years and sold it for 2/3 of what I paid for it

RE: Are all RV's noisy and rattle?

RE: 15+ F150 - Breakaway Cable anchor?

Early on when these first appeared they suggested hooking it over the trailer ball. Did it that way for years then what you think never will happen did happen----the ball itself sheared off, nothing to hold the cable so the brakes didn't engage and the trailer was stopped with the tongue under my truck when I locked up the brakes to get it all stopped. So the hitch can fail......Lot more to this story but just wanted to point out that hitches can fail in one way or another.

RE: Flashlights

I buy about 10 of those $1 things at Wal Mart and toss them when they dim. Can't buy batteries that cheap

RE: 2008 Itasca catalytic converter & pipe stolen

Friend owns a auto recycle place. First thing he does when they come in is cut the converter off. I was there once when the buyer came and he got $27,000+ out of the pile he had. Each one was a different price and one of them was $640. Lowest was $50. I would bet your converter never sees another vehicle. Easy money for thieves if they can get rid of them.

RE: Fighting zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

The county I lived in up North attempted to pass a bill in the county council restricting all kinds of "driveway" storage of boats, RVs, etc. I testified at the public hearing pointing out that their description of a covered vehicle said anything with a MPV tag....MPV tags were common on Jeeps, Broncos, Blazers, vans, along with motorhomes and trailers. The bill went to sleep after the president of the county council discovered that she would be in violation. That was 20 years ago and has never been revisited to this day. I had some success there on other occasions because I always tried to come prepared and had the ability to attract attention to things.

RE: Florida Plates; How to Prove We haven't Been There Lately.

I suppose we could all ignore no smoking signs, speed limits, red lights, etc. I hate masks but if it will help I will wear one. Why would you resist something that is for your own good? Guy in the video is nothing more than an instigator trying to start some drama period.

RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

Sorry Burb didn't mean to ruffle your feathers----I in no way suggested what the OP should do only what I have done....But when you reach my age and have towed as much as I have with no accidents, tickets, etc I feel I can relate a fact---right or wrong.....And my 10 ply tires are fine at 70, did I say my trailer has 3 axels also if that means anything

RE: Florida Plates; How to Prove We haven't Been There Lately.

I believe FL was restricting people from up North at one time. Right now I can't get into a camp ground in WV because I am from another state. I guess we just take our chances, Wal Mart, rest area, truck stop, side of the road. Its the chance we take.
