RE: Center pin box question

IIRC correctly B&W can use the Reese Sidewinder wedge for those turning pinbox setups.

RE: hitch questions

I was useing an 18K Patriot before I went airhitch. It's a great hitch & I would just put the rails in unless you plan on getting some monster size 5er in the future. That's would be the time to switch to a heavier hitch. My opinion & worth every dollar you've paid for it,lol

RE: Sleep apnea

I've been on a CPAP since March 1997. Would I like to not have to use it, yes, but I like to sleep without the increased possibility of a stroke or heart attack. When I did the sleep study ( 25 events per hour ) they woke me & put me on a CPAP. I felt like a million bucks when I woke the next morning.. yes I was overweight but now maintain a lot lower weight. I think once you get it you got it There is an alternative device that a dentist must prescribe BUT you have to have completed a sleep study prescribed by a Doctor. Also a throats operation but I have met 3 that have done this and not one was a success.

RE: Fifth wheel chucking (practical help needed)

When I had a Reese hitch I found keeping some amount of water in the fresh water tank helped with chucking. But my 5er is heavier .. I allways thought it might of had more to do with the sloppy machining of the jaws on the standard Reese hitch?i went to a BW Patriot and ride much better but found a deal on a used airride hitch. With my AirSafe airbag hitch no chucking/bouncing etc

RE: Proper Power Receptacle For Home?

One thing is pretty much a sure thing and that is it's way cheaper now to wire up a 50/30 rv panel than it will be down the road.

RE: Financing Rates These Days

Our friend financed a used 2018 TT end of June & she was poked for 9.75 . She was going to get a better rate at her CU but let them know she was going to live in it for a few years at a job out of state. They wouldn't finance full time RV's. In this current market I would finance the 450 & not the rv. The 450 would be way easier to sale if needed than the toyhauler IMO. I would carry the notes on both for a simple 20% down, 20% interest, for 5 years ??

RE: Need advice if safe for my pickup to pull a heavy 5th wheel

Smart money is hire a rv transport company since this is a one way one time trip. Why risk it ?

RE: 2024 Chevy 3500 verses 2023 F350

about the only thing I saw worth any difference between the two was the fuel tank size. Extra 12 gallons in the ford is nice. I gotta stop way before 36 gal much less 48:o

RE: AC getting amperage spike after an hour use.

Did I not understand what breaker is tripping ? The AC is tripping only the house or genny breaker BUT not the breaker in the rv for the AC or RV main breaker ? If that's the case, I doubt it's actually an AC issue but a wireing issue such as in your shore power cord.

RE: Open Ground

You guys keep telling me I am wrong. So I will ask of all of you again. A GFCI trips because there is more current flowing from the HOT pin into a load than there is flowing from the load back to the NEU pin. That creates the required imbalance in current required to trip the GFCI. It also means that difference in current has somehow been diverted out of the normal flow path. Now where did that current go? Current can ONLY flow to/from the initial power source, i.e. the required “closed loop”. A most basic principle of electricity. That means the missing current has to have an electrically conductive path back to that power source. If the RV is not grounded to the generator, where is that required path? That current can not simply disappear. This is a simple question that no one seems to want to address. You have a frayed extension cord plugged into a RV GFCI & you have your hand in contact with a small tear in the insulation . You are now in contact with the HOT leg & you for some reason grab a metal water pipe. That's a path to gnd with you as the conductor which now is the unbalance the GFCI is there to protect you from . . I know, what are the odds of this happening ? When GFCI plugs became the requirement , was takeing a class on a product we installed & the instructor made a claim you could hold a hot wire on a GFCI circuit & jump into a swimming pool & not get hurt but we couldn't talk him into doing a demo

RE: Rocket exhaust from diesel regen

May look into a Banks exhaust system if it becomes a problem Link I haven't done the exhaust on my 2012 simply because the only benefit I got on my 2003 ( - ) was my DW gripping about how loud the truck was now. Honestly never saw any measurable performance gain.

RE: Coachma Spirit water ?

Thanks everyone She says no valves just the hose bibs & I looked at on line manual & it says just check valve. I told her to try running pump since tank has water & see if CV doesnt re seat. She is living in it 3+ hrs away so I suggested a mobile tech

Coachma Spirit water ?

Friend bought a used Forest River Coachman Spirit & no user manual. She has 2 inlets marked City & tank fill. Hooked up and useing City inlet but for some reason the tank is filling & overflowing. Does this rv have valves mot easily seen or just a bad check valve on water pump. I havent seen it just a phone conversation. Any one know this rv ?

RE: Tree Fell onto My Fifth Wheel

I really don't know about Ca but was the tree yours or your neighbors ? Was it dead or a healthy living tree. If it was a dead tree on your neighbors property then they are liable but if live it's an Act of GOD. My Daughter went thru a similar tree problem last year

RE: B&W Companion hitch removal

I used a homemade lift eye that I used my tractors loader to set in & out. I had the 18k Patriot which I could get the sections out by hand but I'm 74 so why not use the machines I have. I use this same rig to get my AirSafe hitch in/out & I won't attempt to load it by hand.

RE: RV Armor Roof Experiences

Because I thought sayoung might have some first hand experience. Every vent & skylight were replaced before they sprayed the roof. If I should need a new part I'll just go back & get them to replace and re spray the edges of what ever needs replacing. I just don't worry much about what might happen to my rv. If it happens it happens.

RE: RV Armor Roof Experiences

We have had RV FLEXARMOR put on 2 yrs ago. IMO it's the only way for a rv roof. I used DFW RV Roofs in Denton Tx do ours. It must be done in thier shop as it's a special spray application. . It's not cheap but I'm glad I did. Lifetime transferable warranty which I've never seen another rv roof product with that kind of warranty. RVarmor and RV FLEXARMOR are two very different products.
