RE: Stink Bugs

You can blame them on us. We volunteered in New Jersey in 2014 up in the NW area of the state. We didn't know anything about stink bugs then but we did have a few. Our volunteer position was over after Labor Day so we packed up and pulled in our slides and that was when we were overrun with stink bugs. Hundreds and hundreds of them. Little stinkers were everywhere on the slides. All I can say is we were chasing stinkbugs out of the 5er for the next 10 months from NJ through Chicago suburbs down to Missouri and Kansas into Texas after a winter in Texas we headed north to Alaska chasing out stinkbugs all along the way. Sorry.

RE: Frameless Dual Panes - Better or Worse?

We have frameless dual pane. No complaints, they do cutdown noise. We tend to spend most of our time where AC is needed more than heat.

RE: Help a Newbie, question about gas vs. diesel

As a full-time rver diesel is for me the way to go. If I was a weekender gas would be my choice. Last year we traveled 15,000+ miles this year will be closer to 5,000. How many miles for the weekender in a year. $9,000 can buy a lot of gas. So my choice would be a 350-3500 gasser.

RE: How High???

Made it under a 13'9" underpass, so I know it's less than that.

RE: snowbirding

We've spent several winters in Florida, Alabama and Louisana if you have any sense it's easy to avoid gators. It's the snakes you be careful of.

RE: I need a large 5th wheel but am I looking too large?

If you have the cash check out New Horizons they build custom 5th wheels. If you go over 44ft you will limit your access to most public camp grounds. You should Google 5wheel bunkhouses you may find something there, I do recall seeing some bunkhouse models that separate bunk spaces.

RE: Financing question

We purchased our first 5er out of state but financed through our credit union. All we needed was a signed contract. We put 20percent down and paid taxes, title,Ang tags. CU gave us a check made out to the dealer and me. Drove 550 the next day and picked up the 5er the following day. Our present 5er we purchased sight unseen, the one in my sig. Due to an inheritance only difference was between asking price and value of trade-in.

RE: Miles per day.

We aim for 250 miles a day, sometimes more sometimes less. We enjoy breakfast and on the road by 9:30 want to be where we want to be by 3:30. Back in the day when we called it vacation we would push it, drive all night taking turns at the wheel. ??

RE: Inverter Use

Hi All, Has anyone tried running their RV fridge on a basic inverter. In my case I have easy access to the plug on my fridge. I would disconnect the plug from the 110v outlet and plug it into an inverter. What size inverter would I need for a 3.7 size Norcold Fridge. I was thinking at least a 750W. 2012 Tacoma 2018 Prolite Plus S The question is why go to that trouble when you can run it on gas?

RE: RV lifestyle...

Why does how other people choose to set up their camp site or how long they spend doing it bother you? If they aren't infringing on your site or otherwise breaking the rules of the camp ground, why does it motivate a self proclaimed "Live and let live" guy to come on here and make fun of how they do things? It sounds like you are anything but a "Live and Let Live Guy". If they don't set up camp just like you and to your standards of camping etiquette, you think it's funny and feel it necessary to make a post on here about it. Why don't you walk over to them and tell them just how much comedic value you find in their set up and let them know you already went on line and posted about it. Then come back here and tell us all how well that went! No more than an observation. I enjoyed the replies till yours but that's life.

Start your own wireless company that's the only way you can get it.

RE: 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for Puck Systems

Any idea if there is a universal adapter that a B&W hitch would work with for a puck system? I have a 2020 Chevy HD on order and my Patriot is new; I'd hate to have to buy a new hitch. Give B&W a call.

RE: Bring beer into Canada

We've had more than the allowed duty free amount hard liquor and declared it crossing at Sweetgrass still had more than the allowed when we crossed into Alaska. I can only assume as through travelers they aren't as strict and no duty was charged.

RE: Demco Glide RIde pinbox discontinued

We had a GlideRide on our Hitchhiker and loved it. We did have some stress cracks after 50,000 miles but were sent replacement parts at no cost. Now have MorRyde pinbox on our DRV no problems yet 25,000 miles so far, but I still prefer the GlideRide . As for Demco no longer producing pinboxs they lost the 5er manufacturers that used their boxes when they closed their doors.

RE: Black tank splash shield problem

Just filling the bowl to the rim every time a flush is necessary will fill your tank quickly. Better to find out how much your bowl holds. I dump when our black tank gets to 80 percent which is 40 gallons of a 50gal tank. After dumping I fill the bowl twice and flush to prime the tank which registers 8 percent or 4 gallons. Anyone doing 2gallon flushes aren't going to be boondocking for long.
