    • I agree as plumbing is the chore that I dislike most. 
    •   No disagreement here at all. What I was commenting on is the really large systems designed to run your a/c and all of the things you would have in a stick house, compared to the power conserving systems that are more common. I don't see the demand for is the huge systems like that Newmar one. I used to be in the "get off where nobody else is" group when I was younger and I somewhat envy some of the systems that are becoming more common. It used to be that the only way to remote places was with a tent. I'd buy that Newmar if I could afford it but I can't. What I wrote was taken wrong as my point was that I laugh when the owner of one of those rigs talks about saving money. The justification is in getting away, not saving money. 
    • So many variables. Determine your specs and do the math particularity pin weight which is part of Carry capacity. Yes the dually can be a pain in the butt but we have one because we needed one.
    • Steve, in Texas an air brake endorsement is a CDL thing. On a Class A DL (not CDL) there is no air brake restriction added. Spencer, you will be fine in your pick-up and trailer combination as long as (previously mentioned) your combination has an ACTUAL weight or  a gvwr of 26,001 lbs or greater AND the trailer has a ACTUAL weight or gvwr of 10,000lbs or more. Registered weight has no bearing on DL's. I could register my smart car for 80,000lbs but wouldn't need a Class A to drive it.
    • Mornin Al,  for the record I HATE BROCOLI  lol  but support those who do like it SUCH AS MY FIRST WIFE  Keep warm its been a bit nippy here in central Florida brrrrrrrrrrrrr  John T           Not a fan of spinach either lol and my own "personal choice" (while respecting other choices)  is that batteries be located in places OTHER THEN living space air/environment,  but feel free to put them any darn place is fine by me...........Heck just because I wouldn't "choose" to put house batteries (any type) under my bed don't mean that may not be the absolute safest place (which I doubt) possible ?????????
