    X4😁 Depo Brand/deep space lighting from Dave. It was the best mod we did... worth every penny!
  3. 2X. We use 5th wheel pin that slides into Goose-neck shaft when using the HDT. The horses appreciate the air ride hitch. https://www.etrailer.com/Gooseneck-and-Fifth-Wheel-Adapters/etrailer/KPG5-R30IP.html
  4. These axles have both Caster and Camber adjustments
  5. I think it is an alignment issue. It has happened to us twice. Each time it was found to be out of alignment. The first time was the passenger side front axle, it looked similar to yours but was on the outside of the tire. The tire had 5600 miles on it and the trailer was only 5 months old. A new tire was needed and an aligned was done by MorRyde. The second time it occurred at the 21000 mile mark, it effected the drivers side front axle this time. We are lucky enough to be only one hour from MorRyde and think we are going to have an alignment every 10,000 miles along with the bearing maintenance. If there is a spring shop near you they might be able to align it for you. Good luck Bob
  6. Dave, Are there any Big Rig Truck Shows in your area where you could give your backside a test ride? The Midwest has a show in Louisville Ky (Mats) maybe there is a similar show on the West Coast. Jack Mayer or Dave from Deep Space Lighting might know of a similar show in your area. Bob
  7. Dave try looking at Seat-Specialist, they only sell seats and have a good selection. We are lucky enough to be only 30 miles from there distribution center. We tried all the truck stops and dealers to no avail. We wound up with Knoedler Air Chiefs, which are made in Canada. With the Base, leather, standard lumbar and 1 inch of memory foam they came in around 1700 with tax. Seats are like shoes they are a personal choice and not a one size fits all, make sure you sit in the seats you wind up purchasing. Good luck Bob
  8. We use a Pet loader (petloader.com) to get our 2 100lb dogs into the sleeper, it stores in the compartment behind the passengers door. There are pluses and minuses for each truck class. We hauled a 3 horse trailer with living quarters and a 38' DRV with our F series 6 speed manual transmission for years. We had a few pucker moments, one as we descended down a 5 mile 6% grade and lost our brakes. There isn't a better feeling than being able to STOP! At the end of the day, make sure the truck you choose.... will be wagging it's tail instead of the tail wagging the dog.πŸ˜€ Good Luck Bob
  9. 2X Chad and Rick Welcome Steve We were in your position a few years ago and used this forum as well as the following resources to make our decision: This forum https://www.hhrvresource.com/ http://www.jackdanmayer.com/ https://www.rvhaulers.ca/ http://www.rvhlifestyles.com/ Have fun reading and don't be afraid to ask questions, this forum is a wealth of knowledge Bob
  10. X2 Chad....NH would be our dream Coach. We are on our second Drv a 2014 and a 2018, each were 40ft or over and have never had a problem finding a spot to fit into. We have 1200 watts of solar and are close to our carrying capacity with full fresh water. A word of caution If considering the DRV 2014, if the slide outs use the Schwintec system I would pass on it.
  11. Hi Al, Did you every get your Refrigerator Running? What parts were needed and where did you get them from? Bob
  12. Argo Thanks for the advise. Our Insurance might have cover it but our deductible is $1000 and the part was $500. Bob
  13. Al, We replaced the inlet nox sensor which came with a new harness and all seem to be running fine. We have been on a rampage........ 4 WoodChucks, 1 Racoon and of course 1 Skunk, Pee-Yoo. Bob
