    Might just require adjustment. I’d call you coach manufacturer and see what they might suggest.

    Vanleigh Fifth wheels

    We’ve been looking at VanLeighs for the last year, along with GD Solitudes and Montana Legacy units. Took plant tours over the winter and made decision to order a Vilano two weeks ago. Cabinetry is the biggest differentiation in our mind, the VL stands far above the othe two here. There are other plus and minus on each but obviously we came down decidedly in favor of VL. There are many option, advertised and not advertised, that can fix low CC etc. There is a VL FB page that is very active if you want to follow up more with owners. We’ve met Leigh Tiffin a couple of times (at Tampa Show, and factory tour), he and the entire company seem VERY responsive. We can’t wait to get our new 5er!

    Another vote for Sailuns. 2+yrs and ~15k miles and am very happy with them on our 14000lb 5er

    Air Blowout, Winterize Kit, or Both?

    We winterized successfully for years in MN by blowing out lines. One spring I , had a leak in cupboards where an elbow had cracked, can't say it was definitively an issue with winterization...but switched to pink stuff and I've never heard of a failure with pink stuff. Additionally I no longer had a nagging concern about trace oil from compressor getting into water system. As MNtom stated though, I no longer worry about winterizing (moved Tom TN with an RV garage
  5. Marlindy, If you're interested in TN you should look at gardensrvvillage.com I'd recommend looking at it even if you don't know if you're interested in TN yet We lived in MN and escaped winters to TX and then found The Gardens last spring...by summer we'd purchased a lot and sold our place in MN. We're now in the process of building and hope to move in by spring next year. We love it here, and have heard the same from all the residents. I could tell you more but the website does a better job. Good luck with your decisions!

    MaximumSignal Update?

    So...if I purchased the RV unit, and mounted the outside antenna toward the rear of the 5er and the interior antenna toward the front of the fifth wheel... I could position so would always be within 20ft in 5er, and would be ~15ft away in cab of truck with fifth wheel hooked up. Could that work OK, or would car cocerage be better with mobile and trailer coverage really not be much worse with mobile? Physics always has trade offs I guess...

    MaximumSignal Update?

    Gord - I started this thread a long time ago...and still haven't purchased one of your amps We travel with a 5th wheel, would the RV version work permanently mounted in 5er and still work for us in cab of truck while driving? Or do we need to choose between 5er and truck coverage?
  8. Good luck! We're just a little ahead of you: closed on our MN house last Friday and are now full timing for 10months or so while a smaller place with an RV garage is built here in TN. We'll be back in MN in October for a wedding, but definitely not after that when it gets cold. That last month of getting rid of stuff and packing was a lot of work, I'm glad that phase is over.

    MaximumSignal Update?

    Nice video. Curious about the phone hardware distinction he mentioned at the end (not carrier if I understood correctly). Any hints on which phone hardware performs best?

    Great news Gord. Technomedia and Jack - any updates on performance?

    We actually love AZ. Lived there in the 80s. But right now we'd like to be closer to relatives in MN and OH. For the sake of completeness please also reply with known communities in AZ or FL so others may benefit from this thread in the future. Thx

    Thx bigjim. I did think Kirk was in Livingston, I guess he'll need to provide me more info so I know where to go. Regarding winterizing, I am under the impression that with a rv garage I'll be able to come and go without winterizing (maybe need a small heater on some days). This probably won't be a deal breaker either way but will have some bearing.

    Thanks 2gyps, I've enjoyed many of your posts and advice (and Kirks too). The Gardens in Crossville TN is the one I've found in TN, although I think from some comments there might be some others there too. I also understand there are a number of NOMADS there that I plan on contacting if we like what we see there. Still looking to see if there are other options...

    Thanks Kirk. We planned on swinging by Livingston in ~late March but hadn't realized there was more than rv lots there. Will add it to our list. Look forward to seeing it and meeting you in a month or so. Ron

    We're seriously thinking about downsizing some, and moving to where it might be a little warmer than MN. Plan on traveling with RV 3-4 times a year at few weeks to few months each time for a total of about half-time (DW insistent about not FT Question for group is about where we can find RV communities? Would like a RV garage/port so I don't have to winterize. A ~2bedroom house with shop for me and quilting room for DW. No exterior maintenance. And a friendly community. Looked at Retama in RGV and liked a lot but it's a long way from everything. Going to look at Lake Whitney in TX and the Gardens in TN. Don't really want to go to FL. Any other communities we should consider? Thanks in advance for all suggestions. Ron
