  1. Anybody here know New Mexico well?

    I'll second Hidden Valley Ranch.
  2. Rim Rating on Prospective 5r

    The Westlake 17.5 H tires are only 62 mph speed rated. Sailun makes an excellent H rated tire.
  3. Air Blowout, Winterize Kit, or Both?

    If you have a black tank flush, there will probably be water trapped between the hose connection and backflow preventer valve.
  4. "This Is What Campers With Pets Want"

    I agree that vaccination certificates should be required during registration. We stayed at one site where the neighbor's dog showed many symptoms of Bordetella, and yet they let it run loose throughout the campsite. Our dog has been vaccinated for this, but many younger dogs are not. Glad to get out of there.
  5. My Life is Happy Chaos - Advice Please :D

    One thing I would do is try to change the dog's diet. A non-farting dog makes a better companion in a small trailer. Then I would spend time cruising RV dealers to figure out what you really want. If you are buying used, I'd have an inspection done before I would buy it. Watch out for dealers as they want to sell, and may tell you your Subie can tow something it can't.
  6. Guns

    Remember, hand guns and long guns are too different things and have different rules.
  7. A little late, but both compressors I own draw a lot more power when they start up.
  8. Where to buy dog food, etc?

    For high quality food, Tractor Supply is a great place to buy dog food.
  9. Unless the EPA has changed its rules, the MCLs for inorganics are based on drinking 1 liter of water every day for 60 years resulting in 1 excess case of cancer in 100,000 people. If the levels are low, except for some of the inorganics, a taste or two of the water should not harm you. Just my thoughts, take it or leave it. Best to be conservative though. ,
  10. Which propane gauge to buy?

    I'm old school. I only turn on one tank at a time. When it is empty, I switch tanks and fill the empty one. I use my IR temperature sensor to check the level on a warm day.
  11. Silicone spray on slide outs?

    My manufacturer recommends using Pledge.
  12. Broke Leaf Spring - Mobile Repair Help

    The springs on both sides of one axle broke, and Coach Net arranged a tow with a big wrecker to a spring shop. The spring bundle on my 5th wheel is pretty common, and the spring shop had them in stock. They modified the springs a bit to strengthen the spring pack, and I was on my way. The tough part was buying 2 new tires that were consumed by the broken springs.
  13. Cell phone charging?

    Is there a battery disconnect switch that needs to be turned on?
  14. H2O & Voltage Protection

    What I like about the Progressive EMS is that has a lifetime warranty, and if you call them, a tech will either talk to you right away, or return your call if the shop is closed, say for Christmas week. Excellent customer service.
  15. RV Roadside Assistance Service

    I've had to call CoachNet twice. The first call was for a tow for my tow vehicle. The rep couldn't get it into her mind that I didn't need my 5th wheel towed. I hung up and called again, explained it to the second rep and had a wrecker there in 20 minutes. Last week, the springs on my front axle snapped. I was on the edge of a busy highway. The rep asked if I was in a safe place and after a few questions put me on hold and called the State Police which dispatched a cruiser to partially block the road. The state police had called a towing service which arrived just ahead of the police. CN told me they had called a wrecker company and were talking to them about my tow. I told them the police said I had to get the trailer off the road as rush hour was about to happen. They told me if I used the wrecker service that was there, that I would have to pay and be reimbursed. The service on the scene was excellent, and blocked and secured the front axle and got me off the highway. CN, in the meantime, negotiated with the wrecking company, and they agreed to tow me to the CN recommended spring company. CN paid the company directly. I was very pleased with the CN service, and my only complaint is that they kept calling me to see if everything was going OK. Not a bad thing though. I'll keep using CN in the future
