RE: Hooray for Shark Bite fittings...

Sharkbite (and similar style) are AWESOME. They are just expensive.

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

I don't know if I can justify the payment. I'd like to stay a half ton, but I cannot get the box/cab configuration. So, I am now looking at what will work for me. I know that Cummins recommended a more expensive 3500 with the HO CTD and Aisin, but the price difference between a 3/4 and 1 ton is negligible. I'd get a 1 ton if I could find one, but honestly there is minimal difference between most 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, other than an arbitrary class 2B distinction. In many states you can simply register a 3/4 ton for a higher weight than the 10,000 lbs Class 2B, you just have to pay for the higher weight. But if buying, might as well get the 1 ton and not deal with speculation.

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

The 2500 Ram has coils springs on the rear. Not the best for max loads. My coil springs are rated for 6500 lbs, WAY more than a 10,000 lbs class limited truck needs. Also I've noticed Fords have a saggy suspension with weight, something I haven't seen with the newer Rams. I respectfully disagree with your comment.

RE: Cummins/Tula dDSF (diesel Dynamic Skip Fire)

I don't understand the majority of what you wrote, but I like the idea of a smaller engine, similar power and better fuel economy.

RE: Cummins 6.7 Injector Codes?

How many miles? Lots of people have 150-200K miles on stock injectors with the 6.7. Its possible to have 1 bad one, but 2? Unless you are up there in miles, I would suspect the injectors are fine or you just have bad luck. The fact that something happened to cause #4 injector to throw a code, but it didn't come back makes me think its not the injector, but something else. I would start by making sure all your wiring harnesses are in good shape and securely fastened. I'm guessing that something is loose in the injector wiring harness that is causing a voltage drop somewhere that is causing the code. The wiring harness is the first place I would look. At a bare minimum I would say you need further diagnosis. Good luck!

RE: Sports chassis and similar units becoming obsolete?

Oh, then disregard. I have a bottom of the line truck and the seats are horrible. At the end of a long day of driving I feel pretty darn tired. My last truck had much more comfortable seats and I felt better at the end of the day. I'm older now, which probably isn't helping anything...

RE: Sports chassis and similar units becoming obsolete?

500 miles in one day and I'd have to be carried out of the truck. Not if you were in a truck with air-ride seats. Those things are very comfortable and you don't feel "beat up" at the end of the day.

RE: Sports chassis and similar units becoming obsolete?

Couple differences that I see... That Freightliner will still have a substantial value in 10-15 years, the pickup won't. That Freightliner has great comfort features like air-ride seats, can't get that in a pickup yet. That Freightliner likely doesn't even "need" trailer brakes, the pickup truck will need some sort of help slowing down at higher weights. But, for people that like bling, a new pickup truck offers lots of gadgets and gizmos and will haul decent weights with respectable power.

RE: Trying to decide on whether or not to purchase-DECISION

Just kind of rambling but definitely open to any thoughts, other than "if your dog is quiet no one will know if he's there". Rules are there for a reason whether or not we like them. Thanks. Not sure what you are asking. The campgrounds you want to visit don't allow dogs left unattended, you aren't open to the possibility of leaving a quiet dog in the camper. Sounds like you have answered your own question. We, on the other hand, have a small IP camera in our camper. We put our dogs in a cage while we are gone, give them comfy beds and blankets and turn the radio on for ambient noise. We have the IP camera that will give us sound alerts if the dogs bark loud enough to trigger the camera. We can then decide to speak to the dogs through the camera or return to the camper. We bought a camper to allow us to travel with our dogs. I can't take them to the beach with us, can't take them on a friends boat with us, can't take them to the grocery store, etc etc. There are times when dogs need to be left alone. We don't leave them all day, and we certainly don't leave them unattended outside.

RE: Solidifying shower floor??

How old is your camper? My Jayco had a similar issue. The plywood base only covered about 2/3's of the width of the shower pan, so if you stepped on that 1/3, it flexed and scared me. Turns out that the flexing actually allowed the drain to come loose and caused a leak at that connection. Thankfully I was under warranty. They removed the shower, installed a new piece of plywood and stiffened it right up. Fixed it 100%. Without seeing actual pictures of yours, I would imagine the fix will be the same. Remove the entire shower/tub and install the support with the correct size hole. If you have room from below, you could cut a new piece of plywood to fit the oversized hole (like a patch) and cut it in half. Slide one side in, then the other side so that the patch is flush with the floor and the plywood. Then use a larger size piece of plywood underneath the existing plywood and patch, and use a strong poly adhesive to adhere it. That would be the only way I could think of about attacking it from below, if there was enough room.

RE: How to get a loan for RV

Do you own a house? We took out a HELOC at a very low rate and used that to buy our trailer. Paid it off in less than 3 years. Rates are so stinking low right now for mortgages it's even more beneficial than it was 6 years ago when we did it.

RE: Water Heater Question

You can pop open the Water Heater T&P Relief Valve (outside compartment) but should only be done to check for water in WH Tank) Yup, this is the easiest way if you are in doubt about the bypass. Your temp and pressure relief valve is at the top of the heater, so it would have to be full of water for any to discharge from there. I'm hesitant to use correct terminology on a water heater, for fear of insulting the easily insulted, but when you say the only valves are on the "back" of the water heater, do you mean the panel on the outside of your RV? I would refer to that as the front/exterior of the heater. You should have a panel on the inside of your camper at the interior/back of the water heater to access it. Might be under a dinette seat, bed, couch, or might be in a closet. Do you know if you have an Atwood or Suburban?

Water is only COLD upon initial filling.....reheat occurs when water temp gets to 110*F....that is still considered HOT So get off the semantics Sheesh. It heats cold water, it maintains hot water. Didn't know I needed your permission to comment about someone else's post, I'll consider that moving forward.

RE: hot water rv heater

Well why would you want to heat HOT water? Beat me to it. My water heater heats my COLD water.

RE: What do you use for local travel once camped up?

We like bikes. Plenty of very nice options for electric bikes now too. A scooter is fun, but you may need to register them and likely have to insure them. An electric bike won't give you the range that a scooter will, but will allow you to use sidewalks, park for free in towns, etc.

RE: Lock em up... a long story

Pretty sure you can pull the SIM card, wipe the phone, and then it's useable. No, most manufacturers can flag the IMEI so that it is essentially a brick.

RE: Hitch height

If you are already 3.5" lower in the front, that's about as far as I'd lower it. I think its odd that they would say 1.5" above the ball prior to loading, as different vehicles have different spring packs and settle differently than others. Maybe they just recommend that as a starting point. Just curious, what truck and what trailer? If you have big enough truck combined with small enough trailer you may not even "need" WDH. Assuming you have a front compartment, you might want to load up some heavier items there to increase tongue weight. I've got my tools, a hydraulic jack, chairs, beach umbrella, wood blocks for the stab jacks, small air compressor, etc up in the front compartment. That extra weight there helps with towing stability.

RE: Lock em up... a long story

I am curious: What's the point? is there truly a market for used/stolen travel trailers? Some people steal just to steal. I remember about 15 years ago the big thing in my area was robbing people of their cell phones. There is zero market for a stolen cell phone, because the victim can report the theft and the carrier can remotely disable the phone. That didn't matter, criminals gotta criminal. They'd steal them for sport. An RV... if you have a piece of land and want a semi permanent trailer, why not steal one. Steal it, drive it 30 miles away (before the owner knows its stolen) and park it on your land and remove the tag (because its "permanent" now). The odds that a cop will take notice of it and have a legal reason to get close enough to verify the VIN are ridiculously low. When the trailer gets too decrepit, haul it out and dump it a couple miles away and steal another. I'm guessing it doesn't happen often, but it could. More likely is stealing items of value from inside (battery, fridge, AC, heater, fuel, tv, radio, etc) and selling those items. As many have mentioned, meth lab. Or, just criminals being criminals. Joy rides and what not. I've been a cop for 19+ years... I don't think I've ever run the tags of a single RV. Very few stolen in my area, so I don't even think about it.
