  1. When I order my latest FW, the salesman recommended trying the OEM vs Amish built furniture. Very quickly the RV was ordered without the sofa and recliners. The mattress was replaced with the Spring Aire taken from my trade. We are very happy with the result. Clay 2016 DRV MS 38PS3

    Traveling in cold weather

    When I have my slides in 30% of my furnace outlets are covered and a 30 % is restricted. For that I reason I winterize and carry extra water for personal use and RV antifreeze for flushing. I heat the RV up when the slides are out, If the temperature are 27 or above I haven't any problems as truck seems to increase the ambient air temperature when pulling. Wind chill is more a gauge for Bare shin. Air tight winter clothes are warmer in a wind. To see the difference put a cheap plastic rain parka on other the winter clothes. That is similar the siding on the RV., it blocking air flow. Clay 2016 DRV 38PS3

    m2-106 replace batteries

    You haven't mentioned but I'm assuming you have custom truck. I to have your concern with a Sports Chassis. I haven't done the measurement s but the closest space may require dropping the step. Definitely I would want an insulted material to cover the Battery post before trying to lift or slide out out. Presently about every 10 days, I have to either drive the truck or plug in for the Battery Tender charge a day or so. The security system is enough battery drain that the pre-air heater is now dropping the voltage to about 11 volts before hitting the starter, unless the batteries are fully charged.

    Loosing memory sat receiver

    From my use of the Pathway X2, the receiver connected to the Secondary Port of the Pathway may have problems. Solution is leave the receiver connected to the Primary Port turned on.. Without power from the Primary receiver, my Pathway will move about every 15 minutes giving a chance for the Secondary receiver to loose sync.and restart on stronger signals. Clay

    From what area, I can't read the license plate. Yes the enclosed trailer even can carry more but that is the most on a open trailer. Clay

    Cummins ISL 9L Problems?

    The only problem I had with the engine was the EGR cooler leaked and plugged which was in the 2 year warranty about 23,000 miles. The Catalyst failed about 24,000 miles was in emissions warranty and that time it was found that a Engine update had never been made plus Diamer had received a bad batch id Catalyst that even was used in Dodge Pickups. My biggest complain on Cummins is their Diagnotics. I have had dash lights related to engine error but no Diagnotics errors OLD or NEW. My biggest truck problem has been going to FL service shops that sends you out the door with a problem Clay 2015 FL M-2 106 SportChassis approaching 42,000 miles

    Fifth Wheel Inspection due

    Thanks for the reply's Big5er Thanks for the Link. Now the rest of the story. My current plate expires Dec 31 and I wanted to be able to have an inspection before the anticipation parking this weekend in Kerrville TX for 4+ months. I hate to reconnect just to have an inspection so that was my intention of having an inspection Texarkana.. Little did I know that the weather would change out plans. The plans to leave Nov 26 was changed to 44 hours earlier due to pending storm storm in NW Illinois for Nov 26 . The result was I arrived in Texarkana on Wednesday instead of Friday PM so continued to Kerrville to get RV inspection today. Clay. Yes the RV passed inspection .
  9. There is a good chance I will be entering Texas Friday Nov 30. I'm looking for place to have my 40 foot Fifth wheel inspected before parking it Saturday for 4+ months.. I30 at Texarkana will be the entry point. Pending the time of day the route would continue via I30 or we would drop south to Marshall via Route 59 before heading west towards Tyler. Looking for a place in or near Texarkana lets you get in & out easily . Any suggestion for getting inspection for a combined vehicle length of nearly 60 feet would be appreciated. I have had vehicles inspected in Livingston, Kerrville and Fort Stockton but trying to find a Saturday location hadn't been a good option thus a Friday at Texarkana Clay

    Getting through St Louis

    Found I70, take I55-I70 to I255. This will take you across the Mississippi River JB bridge. Continue in Missouri on to I270 and then take I44 on to Joplin. Slow downs may happen but less construction. Clay

    Control the Federal Dept?

    I have a Historian cousin who speaks several lanuages. He says French will be the dominant (or univeral) language in his grandson's lifetime. This based on the population change in Africa compared to many other nations. He is teaching his Pre-K grandchild French. As for Kirk's post, he made a statement everyone should be concerned about. He said US Debt. to me that is, ALL DEBTORS. That is personal debt and Gov't debt. My definition of GOV'T is "Federal", "State", "County", "Local". Local is large such as School, Fire Protection, Police, Local roads, Cities and on and on. Clay.

    Pathway X2 advantage

    I have had my Pathway X2 about 15 months so I'm going into my second winter. No problem last winter ( Dec 28 we headed south) but first snow happened this morning. I changed channels requiring Sat 77. NoGo.I restarted and looked at the TV 10-15 minutes later. still on first check. I checked at the sat and no movement so tapped and sound like ice cracked and I had movemnt but not far so pulled power and now it is thawing out. A BIG disadvantage to the little Trailgater in the winter. Clay
