RE: Hello

These fish are brought in quickly and many times the single barbless hook falls out. The fish are struggling and still very alive but for whatever reason some simply don't just swim off. I have heard this from many others. I have no idea ,no experience like that with salmon why that would happen .They are a pretty hardy fish, they have to be to be able to make their spawning run .The few silver salmon I have caught in the ocean were kept ,but that was over 30 years ago. The salmon I have caught in Alaska have been on a river, and released with out problems . I see trout that sometimes doesn't take much to get them on their side ,especially in the warm weather in the summer , but usually working them a little before letting them go, they will swim off pretty well. .

RE: Hello

I am no fisherman, never had much luck, or knowledge of the subject. Some years back, I was pretty good at catch n release, but had nothing to do with fishing. I know 2014 does fly fishing, likely in some beautiful areas. Be nice to see a couple pics! Anyway, a little activity on TV section, maybe a bit of help to advertisers? Jerry I'll look thru the archives for some pictures , I don't take many. One trout looks the same as another :) I do have several of friends , I like to have those . When I first started fishing in Montana at this place we go every summer we met these guys, and their wife's that were retired , we were not . Now we are retired , and those guys no longer go up there. They are still ALL alive , except for a couple of the wife's :( , four in their 90's , and three more that are getting there . I keep in touch with most of them. One in particular I fished with a lot over the years , he quit coming this past summer , he is only 83 . Yes there is worse places to be then Montana in the summer , and not much worse in the winter :B I was raised in northern Montana ,and it got a bit chilly there in the winter .

RE: Hello

Season was cut short for Chinooks unfortunately. Appears to be a silver , still fun to catch , especially on a fly rod . Actually it was a Pink Salmon. Its been awhile since I have fished off the coast of Washington ,and Oregon . It was silvers that we were catching . Released every Silver caught as they were "NATIVE". Over half turned belly up and drifted down into the darkness. VERY frustrating!!! Catching trout ,or salmon with gear can be difficult to release , especially treble hooks ,or if they get hooked too far down in their mouth or throat. Any bleeding at all they are usually a goner . Over playing them is tough on them, if they end up on their side coming in ,they are overplayed . It's always good to bring them in as fast as possible especially if you release them . If you are releasing them, and worked them pretty hard after you unhook them, you should work them back, and forth in the water by the tail, or gently by the body until they can swim off on their own. More or less revive them . It's rare with the fly fishing I do to hook them anywhere but in the lip or side of the mouth. I fish a lot where it's catch ,and release , and they need to be handled with care . The hooks are pretty small , very seldom anything bigger then size 12. If possible I don' handle them at all out of the water or even touch them , I can reach down ,and unhook them . If they are too big ,and squirrely I will net them . With what little salmon fishing I do these days it's the land locked Kokanee we catch , and its with a friend out of his boat . We usually keep a limit for smoking or just cooking . They are hard to beat for eating . Very seldom do I keep a trout, we do occasionally in Montana out of a lake to smoke, but it's rare , more fun to release to catch another day . :)

RE: Good Sam ERS Hung Us Out to Dry

What I want is an emergency roadside service I can count on. Good Sam Raodside Assistance is the wrong choice. Good luck! They all fail, at some ponit/time. This was a simple tire/wheel change - no towing required. Any garage that does roadside service would do the work. Maybe the GS representative misunderstood your problem? Maybe I do? Yes, this was a simple tire change on the fifth wheel and GS knew it because they asked me if I had a usable spare tire, which I did. But regardless why didn't I receive a call back or text? These are COVID times and many businesses are short of help. But that is no excuse for not calling back. They hung us out to dry, it's that simple. The one time I tried to use GS, same experience as you . I just wanted to see how well their service worked ,it didn't . After about an hour not hearing anything , I just changed the tire myself . No more GS for me. I have towing on my regular car insurance, after checking with them I am covered on the fifth wheel ,and truck for towing . Thats all I really want . I can handle the tire changes .

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

Anyone who buys a new vehicle for in excess of $50K, then proceeds to go rock crawling with it or beating it off trees in the woods somewhere has more rocks in their head than what they are craving over IMO lol. But it's your money. I don't think my wife will treat a new Bronco like that ,she seems to want that new Bronco .

RE: Hello

With all the areas that our Governor closed for Salmon fishing we did manage to catch a few. Wife finally caught her first Salmon. https://i.imgur.com/M1XQDE2l.jpg Nice ,where are the big ones . :B

RE: Replacing New Trailer King RST+ : Only Option Is Carlisle??

What do your LOADED axles weigh? Hinting around about those Endurance tires of yours are you ??? :B Being that he has OE F rated tires I wouldn’t even be thinking about Goodyear Endurance on his fifth wheel . OP needs to shop around , and get a set of Sailuns made in China , probably smart to stay away from Vietnam until it gets figured out . But doubtful even the Vietnam made are going to be a big issue . NOPE, If he knows his weights he may have other options. Seems like an odd load range, never hear of it on an OE RV. Since you brought it up he sure could go with the ENDURANCE 255/85R16 in load range "E" with 4,080# capacity. I am betting he has WAYYYYY less weight on each tire! Let's say his tire weight is 3,500#, PLEASE tell us all WHY he couldn't run the US Made ENDURANCE I list??? I took a look at the specs on the Endurance ,calls for a 7" rim, most likely he is running 6" , that leaves out those size Endurance ,unless you think he should run them on an undersized rim ? Otherwise ,maybe you have other suggestions for a tire for him .

Have never looked at the specs for that size Endurance. Yes some of the Montana High Country's have come OE F rated , from what I have read on the Montana forum .

RE: Alignment...I think!

So...brand new tires, a 3000 mile trip and this happens. Tires have worn perfect for the past 15 years. PSI and temps were all good for the entire trip. Got home and washed the rig and saw this wear on the front axle right side. Any ideas as to what the problem is? https://www.amazon.com/photos/shared/WfI83GAHQZ2Bgsc7VnncTA.nERMFiG0c0jPuBar2s_ZHY Could you tell us what brand of tire that is ,I have seen several G614's cup ,and wear like that over on the Montana forum . I ran G614's several years ago ,and they wore somewhat like that on the edges , but it was all four .

RE: Hello

I have been busy getting this setup the way I want it and getting the first 120 miles on it and first service so I can rip up a little desert. Well and missing my DW of 40 years who stepped off the Planet on July 5th. https://i.imgur.com/f6O0yJhl.jpg I'm happy to see that you're keeping busy, but very sorry to hear about your wife. Same here ,sorry to hear about your loss .

RE: Replacing New Trailer King RST+ : Only Option Is Carlisle??

It's possible that the F rated tires are all that were available at the time of the build due to the shortage of everything now.. Cummin12V98 is right, what does it weigh and what does the label say on the coach about weights and tire usage. I've run Carlisle HDs on several RVs without a single issue. I've used Firestone Transforce as well without incident. So you are suggesting to go down in rating ,possibly to an E rated tire ?? Thats what I am pretty sure 12V is alluding to , to go to a E rated Goodyear endurance. If anything I would up a rating ,not down. That means G rated . I pretty sure those labels reflect what rated tire came on it from the factory. My 2008 was labeled E rated tire 235/80/16 My 2015 was labeled G rated 235/80/16 , both fifth wheels were 15,500 GVWR. I'm guessing the OP is at least that 15,500, if not his fifth most likely would have come with E rated . Need to hear from the OP on weights .

RE: Andersen Ultimate Hitch - my observations

Possibly mixing up it up with the one I got ,which is the steel rail mount version. I can run it either way I want ,also the adapter . .

RE: Water Heater bypass valve.

Anderson makes a brass replacement valve that is a whole lot better,but not cheap. Mt fifth wheel has that brass Andersen valve that's the tank fill, winterization , and city hookup, if that's what you are referring too. The problem is in a separate bypass valve for the water heater , that's a Thetford Valve ,which I am replacing. I know if you are not careful with those Andersen valves under pressure ,and switching them back ,and forth you can blow an O ring. If say I am hooked to city water ,and want to switch that valve to tank fill, its a good idea to shut the water off first relieve the pressure , switch the valve then turn the water back on . Pretty sure there is no problem with that valve, its in the bypass valve .

RE: Water Heater bypass valve.

Shark bite fittings work very well. They are spendy, perhaps enough so that you could buy your own pex crimp tool and parts for the same money. Convenience comes with a high price. Look into that Down the road a buyer of your unit will see the right fix, not a shortcut. Other posters to my comment were correct I am wrong , about check valves the check valve in this application is to prevent flow so as a normally closed , low pressure would not be a problem. Thanks again . I ordered the replacement, one day delivery from Amazon, I saw the tool, and the clamps . I agree I’ll go that route , once I know what fittings I’ll need .

RE: Water Heater bypass valve.

Another question , what are the thoughts on using shark bite fittings to replace this valve ??

RE: Water Heater bypass valve.

There are 2 types of water heater bypass systems, the 3 valve - 1 each for in, out and bypass between the in and out. A fool proof design. The other is a 1 valve bypass to inlet that then switches flow to bypass and depends on a auto check valve at outlet to close to prevent inflow to the cold water heater tank. Failures are rare of manually operated valves, check valves do need a good slam of pressure to close. Build up your air or pump pressure to maximum before bleeding the water. When pumping the pink be certain all valves are in winterizing position ( CLOSED) Run the pump until it pressurizes the system to cut off, then go- slowly- to each tap nearest to farthest , 2 times around allowing the pump or compressor to rebuild pressure to each tap Edit, I think you pumped a/f too soon, without enough pressure to close the spring operated check valve. The check valve is spring loaded closed (closed is normal position) and does not require water pressure to close it. When there is no demand on the hot water system, water pressure is equal on both sides of the check valve and it remains closed. When a tap is opened, the pressure in the hot water side drops below the water heater tank pressure allowing it to overcome the check valve spring and allowing water to flow. They generally fail by gunking up with deposits and stick closed. However I am sure they can stick open the same way. That also makes sense , either way I am going to just replace it . As said in a previous post I have dealt with this same valve in two different fifth wheels for 13 years ,and this is the first problem I have had . Thanks
