RE: 5th wheel tires

BEST is always a figure of speech, OR personal opinion... MOST talked about here lately are: Goodyear G614 (16") --- Goodyear G114 (17.5") and the BIGGEST talker - Saliun.. that tire seems to have a TON of traction in the market now with great results

RE: Pigeon Forge and Nashville

We were in Pigeon Forge in 2017 and stayed at River Plantation, it was nice.. As far as Nashville goes. it's been 15 years or so since we were there, but the last time we did, we stayed at Nashville KOA North.. it was nice, and also close to the Opry.. They used to have lots to do, and you were able to book bus trips that picked you up right in the campground.. You could also book trip to the Opry and other places from the front desk. I would assume MOST in the area offer that as well.

RE: Mopeka Products

I think this is better: Dometic LPGC10 LP Gas Checker I had used that for years and was not thrilled with it, then I heard about these - Trauma I have had it 1 year and so far its really accurate.

RE: Mopeka Products

I tried them a few years ago but at that time they gave you rubber spacers to raise tanks to gain space for the sensors and both on my sensors got crushed over time spent bouncing around on the rubber feet. The sensors worked pretty well with the app but the remote wall mount wasn’t very accurate. I think they have since made the spacers out of metal to protect the sensors . I now use a hand held device , Truma propane tank gas lp level checker. Mike They sent me replacement feet that were machined from aluminum for free... The sensors were more trouble then they were worth in my eyes.. I removed them and started using a hand held again..

RE: Class A crash

Although it is easy to be an armchair Quaterback after the fact, I'll toss in my .02 My opinion is that the driver of the RV was not paying attention closely enough, and reacted too late. It was clear ( to me ) that the big rig was stopped with enough time for the RV to react and adapt.. Just MY opinion... Sorry for his loss, hope insurance was paid up !

RE: just saw my 1st 2020 F-350's

Russ, on my 2015, I am over my GVW, just at my RAWR, and just under my 3750# rated tires. The RAWR on the 2020 is confirmed at 7230 which is only 130# higher.. The weak links on these truck is still the tires and RAWR..

RE: just saw my 1st 2020 F-350's

I gotta say, ALL of the big 3 have come a long way in the past 10 years.. I stopped on the way home tonight to look at the 2020 Lariat, 6.7, 4x4, Long Bed sitting at the local dealer .. curb weight - 7490# GVW - 12,400 listed payload on sticker - 4514 RAWR - 8300.. I may be wrong on that, but am pretty sure I saw that listed.. just for example, those numbers are a decent jump just from a 2015... payload is 1200# higher...GVW is 1,000# higher... curb weight is 1000# lighter...RAWR is about 1000 or 1200 higher... They are ALL making it easier to justify a SRW with those numbers... Pretty sure you are wrong on the GRAWR, 8,300# would require a tire rated at 4,150# each, 7,300# likely. Russ, I may very well be completely wrong on that number...The tires were rated at 3750 ea, I am sure of that . ..thats 7500 I was impressed by the other numbers, gonna check out the Rams next... I will say that my SRW has been nothing but rock solid, BUT I am only out on weekends in the summer and 1 trip at 2 weeks... IF and WHEN I start going more, it would be a DRW for sure, without thinking about it.. I am Just wasting time now, Christmas is over and I have no to do list on the Redwood, so I will waste my time looking at things I cant buy ! ! !

RE: Camping World Virgina

I guess you do not know how to use a smart phone. I am in FL. That makes no sense... Use YOUR SMART phone and call them.. introduce yourself, tell them what your looking for... I would assume that your smart phone would work from any state to any state.. ** OR ** Do as most do on here, stay away from CW when purchasing a new trailer, all too many times things go south, fast...

RE: Camping World Virgina

Be ware and stay away from this company. Something is wrong Camping World Virgina I sent a simple request in for a picture of the yellow sticker with the vin and weights on it three times and no one has sent it back to me. Stay awake from this company. Sent email to Kendal Kmowles and and Sudie Crawford.I thought dealers wanted to sell RV's Do you really think that some is actually going to go out, take a picture of a weight sticker. scan it, and send it to someone they have no idea who they are? I see the following CW's in VA - Airstream of VA, Gander RV of Fredericksburg, Hampton Roads, Manassas, McGeorge RV, Gander RV of Roanoke, Winchester.. ALL of which are Camping Worlds... I see you named 2 girls at CW, did you call either of those 2 and ask why no response? perhaps you have a wrong email?? Maybe if your really interested, you should pop your head into the store, introduce yourself and see what happens? ** We as a society have gotten away from most personal interjection.. go old school on them, show up and be a P.I.T.A.,, they will give you almost anything you want to get rid of you..:B

RE: Fort Wilderness Trip Planned

Was able to book a week at the Fort at the end of May. Got a full hookup site and plan on splurging and renting a golf cart. Originally looked at a package deal for the site fee plus a three day multi park pass for three. Just before booking, we emptied the cart and ended up buying the park passes separate which saved over 600 bucks! Am excited to be going as this will be my first time pulling my own camper. I've searched on here, but can't find the website that I have read about - fort friends or something like that. Can someone clue me in on that? PM sent

RE: Discount on fuel if paying with cash??

I stop where convenient for me fuel up and head down the road.. we also pay our cards off in full each month... We have not paid interest on CC's in many years... It's a nice place to be and I a thankful for being able to do so. EXACTLY! I hit the Truck Stops that way I have ZERO issue entering or exiting. Towing doubles or not I still use em. Let's say I pay .25 a gallon more than the Arco down the road at 25 gallons that is only $6.25. Some will "Trip over" that amount, I sure don't! " ARCO " ????? You still have Arco stations out on that coast ? they ALL closed up around here maybe 20 years ago? I worked at the local Arco before going to the local Exxon..... hmmmmmmmm . that was 40 or so years ago...

RE: Discount on fuel if paying with cash??

Im happy for you FTG. And you manage this even though you run a Ford! Amazing:) If your serious, Thank You... worked hard to get where we both are in life.. Learned at an early age that nothing is given to you and hard work is usually rewarded, no matter what badge is on the tow vehicle.

RE: Washer/Dryer worth it?

We tossed around the idea, but storage is at a premium so DW elected to adopt the " wait and see" attitude. We are only weekend warriors with usually 1 trip for 2 weeks in the summer so it really does not make sense to me... ** BUT I will refer to the following statement - - " A HAPPY WIFE = A HAPPY LIFE" . . If and when DW decides she wants one, we'll have one. ** disclaimer.. I told her a washer and dryer will ONLY go in if a new truck is towing the added pin weight ! :B
