RE: Will it be difficult to find a reliable 5er on a 20K budget

Lots of older 5ers are still in great condition. Just a matter of finding one and carefully inspecting it. I have a 2007 34’ Montana that is lightly used for its age and in very good condition. Someone will get a very good trailer a few thousand below $20k when I get ready to sell. Which may be in the near future since our travel has been severely curtailed by other factors.

RE: Fry's Electronics shutting down 30 stores in 9 states

I never really bought a lot there. But I knew that most likely I could find what I did want. Will miss just browsing their store.

RE: 2021 Yellowstone / Teton Road Trip

Have you checked Headwaters Campground at Flagg Ranch between Teton and Yellowstone?

RE: New Ford 150s Save the Day in Texas

How big are the generators in those? Different sizes? There are three different ones available depending on the engine. They have a 2.0 kw for most F150s. And a 2.4 kw or the optional much larger 7.2 kw generators on the hybrid F150s.

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

As to whether the CC&R are enforceable, you are not going to get the answer here. You will have to go to the city and find out who and if any enforcement can and will be done.

RE: Where would my LP regulator leak?

Look for a very small vent hole in the regulator. If the membrane in the regulator is leaking, the propane will escape thru that hole. My regulator was turned in a position I could not see the vent hole and could not get soapy water on it. Therefore no bubbles. Took the regulator off and there was oily residue around that vent. Replaced the regulator and all good.

RE: New Ford 150s Save the Day in Texas

Some Ford dealers were loaning out their hybrid F150s with the larger generators for homes/ with no power.

RE: Why is 5th wheel standard vs Gooseneck?

Why is a gooseneck harder on the trailer frame than a 5er? Is it because the length of the neck down to the ball is longer than a 5er? We are thinking of going from a TT to a 5er, and just trying to learn. It isn't with a modern gooseneck adaptor like a Reese Goose Box. it would have to be to maintin the trailer high while mounting in the ball in the floor of the bed. your mising the whole hight of the 5th wheel hitch it has to make up for. Steve The additional torque of a gooseneck adapter would be greatest during acceleration and deceleration. But the air bag, shock absorbers, and rubber bumpers of a Goosebox would soften that impact vs a rigid gooseneck adapter.

RE: Problems with 7 Pin Connector

Had similar problem. I have two factory 7 pin connectors on the truck, bumper and in-bed. The 7 pin trailer cord worked fine plugged into the bumper connector, but was intermittent plugged into the in-bed connector. After messing with it a long time and never getting much better, I just replace the in-bed connector and no more problem.

RE: Montana HC vs Heritage Glen 1500lb Diff?

Can't answer your question. But I guess the first thing I would compare would be the frames for that much extra weight. May be that the HC has larger I beam frame.

RE: Why is 5th wheel standard vs Gooseneck?

.......... Most of the RV's on the market have frames made by Lippert. Lippert endorses the use of the Reese Goose Box with their frames so apparently the frames don't need to be any heavier or cost anymore than they already do......... . They endorse the Goosebox because it has an air bag and shock absorber like the air ride pin boxes to reduce the road shock to the frame.

RE: Why is 5th wheel standard vs Gooseneck?

I agree with both of above. Easier hookup since it is self aligning side to side and stops and self latches when the pin is all the way inserted. And no safety chains required. And the manufacturers don’t have to build the frame as structurally strong, meaning less expensive. Broken frame welds is not uncommon even with a 5th wheel hitch. That is why some manufacturers say they will void the warranty if you use a gooseneck adapter.

RE: Ford Going All Electric in 2030 Too...

I'll be 91 if lucky and probably won't be driving anymore... Meh. You won’t have to. Autonomous driving will do that for you. Autonomous driving will allow people to stay active in their communities much longer. Or you can just key-in to your Cybertruck towing vehicle to meet you at the campground while you fly and take Uber.:B All of which will be autonomous, including the all electric airplane. :B

RE: Not a Great Week for Travel

The entire state of Texas is now under either a winter storm warning or winter storm watch. Been here all my life and can't remember that ever happening. Will not get above freezing in parts of Texas until at least Friday with lows dipping into single digits and near or below zero in far north Texas. Not a good time to travel here. At least they are predicting snow this time rather than the more dangerous freezing rain we so often get and that caused the deadly wreck in Ft Worth.

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

In the short term, it is likely RV parks will opt to have a common use charging station with multiple connections rather than one at each site. That will be cheaper to build and easy to charge per use. There are three levels of charging stations, level 1 with 120 vac, level 2 with 240 vac, and level 3 with 400+ volts. Level one is low power and takes a long time to charge an EV and maybe not reasonable for an RV park. Level 2 charges much faster and would probably work. Level 3 is more in line with a service station for fast charges for travelers.

RE: It might begin very soon

I worked in controls in a safety related field, one dedicated to preventing explosions in power plants. Ideally they will use self-testing triple redundant fault tolerant controls or something equal. Those systems are available. We will see.

RE: It might begin very soon

Ultimately they will likely be safer than human driven trucks. Will not get sleepy, distracted, driving while eating, etc. all while following driving rules and speed limits.

RE: CDL Required to Drive Class A?

The Oklahoma Drivers Manual is certainly not clear. It only shows 4 types of license. Class A, B, and C commercial. And Class D non commercial. The class D says you can operate Cars, vans trucks under 26,001 lbs. (GVWR) recreational vehicles, fire trucks. That seems to say a class D will allow you to operate an RV without regard to weight. Many states have class A, B, and C non commercial license requirements for heavier vehicles such as large RVs. But apparently not Oklahoma. Best check with your local authorities rather than take advice from people here that are not Oklahoma residents.

RE: West Glacier to Moab in 4 days?

Three 5-6 hour travel days counting stops for food/fuel/rest but with no side trips would be pretty easy. Just depends on your travel preferences as to how long you want to travel.
