RE: shopping for new fifth wheel

You may want to look at the 5ers built by Heartland. Specifically the Bighorn or the Elkridge.

RE: Sacramento to San Diego

My son and his family are moving from Las Vegas to San Diego. While it is a bit shorter to San Diego, I realize the traffic will hold us up. It was a straight shot and easier to go to Vegas. Oh Well. I am retired, and will take my time.

RE: Sacramento to San Diego

Thanks profdant. I am convinced that the way heading south is not to take I-5 through LA. You sold me. I will find another way. I think the moderator has a way by taking I-5 to the I-210 and going to the I-15 to San Diego area.

RE: Sacramento to San Diego

What is the "best" time to drive thru LA? Heading South on I-5, I would guess that the time would be afternoon, around 1 pm or no later than 3 pm. Heading North, is it around 9am?

RE: Sacramento to San Diego

The majority agrees with me. Timmac, I drove I-5 through LA one time with a older and smaller 5er. And never again. I will go to Kramer's junction and take I-15. Timeroll, no I plan on doing it in 2 days. You know I was going to Vegas all the time. My son and his family lived there. Now he is moving to San Diego. It is shorter, but I think longer in time. we will see.

Sacramento to San Diego

I want to go from Sacramento to San Diego pulling a 35 ft fifth-wheel. All the maps on the computer say to take I-5 all the way to San Diego. I would prefer not to do that. Would it be easier to get to Bakersfield, take hi-58 to Barstow then take I-15 to San Diego. Or take I-5 to Santa Clarita, then take Hi-14 to Hi-138 to I-15. Or is there another better route?

RE: Furrion Back-up Camera

I meant to write they make backup cameras and they make observation cameras.

RE: Furrion Back-up Camera

No. The backup camera merely turns on when you put the tow vehicle in Reverse. The observation camera is on when you have the trailer lights on or when you put the tow vehicle in reverse. I understand what you are saying, but they sell the observation cameras separate from the observation cameras.

RE: Furrion Back-up Camera

I just wanted to say that there is a difference between a back-up camera and the observation camera. The difference being that the camera only comes on when you are backing the unit for the back up camera. The observation camera allows you to see people come up the rear of you, in my instance, when the lights are on and when you are backing the unit. Just to make sure Dutchmen understands there is a difference.

RE: Keyless locks

Thanks. I am thinking about putting one in. The thing that holds me back is the videos that show the install. In one, they had to file the opening around the deadbolt. The other video showed the "gap" between the door and the lock. He had to fill in caulking. The other thing is, I have a screen door that has a handle allowing me to open up the main door. Will the opener fit the lock?

Keyless locks

I am sure that everyone has seen the advertising of the Keyless Entry Locks. I was wondering who has them, was it hard to install, any problems with them and why there is such a range of prices on them ($119 to $259)?

RE: tpms vs tire gauge reading

Thanks for the input. I guess the TPMS is doing what it is supposed to be doing, i.e. note a change in tire pressure. I guess I will leave it alone.

tpms vs tire gauge reading

I purchased two things for the trailer. One was a tire gauge and the other was the Tire Pressure Monitor System. First, I checked the pressure by use of the gauge (brand new). The tire pressure showed 110 PSI. After that, I installed a TPMS and noted that the Tire pressure was showing 115 psi (cold pressure). As the tire is used and the day increases in heat, the tire was showing 123 psi. what PSI should I follow? The first gauge that shows the psi to be 110 or the tpms which shows the pressure to be 115. Or should I decrease the amount of air, putting the tpms as priority, in other words putting the psi to 110 down from the reading of 115?

RE: Furrion vision s problem

Did you "pair" the camera to the monitor?

RE: 45 amp adapter-use with a gfci plug

Thanks. I was afraid of that scenario. Oh well!!!

45 amp adapter-use with a gfci plug

Camco makes an adapter which utilizes a 30 amp and a 15 amp plugs to get the user 45 amps of power. It looks like two wires coming to the 50 amp female end, which they say will allow the user to get 45 amps when there is not a 50 amp outlet. But it can't be used with a GFCI plug. Is there an adapter for the 15 amp plug which will allow the user to plug into a GFCI plug? Why does Camco not have it with a plug which would allow it already?

RE: What should the PSI be in the trailer?

Yes they are original equipment tires. I have had them on for 4 years now, and I don't remember how I heard that 90 PSI was the proper inflation for the tires. I recently got a TPMS and the guy said he would recommend 110 PSI for the G rated tires. Thus I inquired what people were doing.

What should the PSI be in the trailer?

I have a trailer which has Sailun G rated tires. The maximum PSI of air is listed as 110 PSI. I was carrying 90 PSI but recently was told that the maximum PSI, that is 110 PSI is the amount of air I need to carry. Which is the amount I should have in the tires?

RE: Rear view camera for trailer

I bought an observation camera for my fifth wheel trailer. It allows the driver to see what is happening behind them when driving as opposed to the back up camera which is only on when the vehicle is in reverse. It cost about $50 more. Furrion makes the most popular cameras, as do Voyager.

RE: tpms

I appreciate all the input. I am going to buy a tpms. Probably the Eez or the TST. Thanks for providing me with the info.
