    I have had several RV's, all came with a generator, 4000w. Now I have a 5th wheel with NO generator. What do I look for in a portable? I have a 13,500 AC. How many decibels is reasonable? Is an inverted as good as a generator? I know folks talk about Hondas, but how about the ones we can by from Harbor Frieight, $300.00 verses $2,000 just an ol farm boy. Another question: 20 years ago the truck that I had at the time, it was easy to look out the back window into the box and see the hitch as I backed up to hook up. My new truck does not have that luxury. Does any one have a procedures took make the hooking up process easier?
  3. generator

    Thanks for the info. I think that I can mount it semi permanently on the back using the trailer hitch. Jayco says that we can handle 300#. I have decided to delay the decision till spring. WE have two trips planded that all with hookups. In the spring I hope to go west and I will need a generator.

    I just bought a 2500 Chevy 2014 with a 6.1 engine. 29' 5th wheel that weighs 10,000 empty. I don't think that I will have any problems. Thanks for all the info. ruee
  10. half ton pickup pulling fifth wheel

    Thanks, russ. I have resolved my question. I really thought that I needed a 3/4 ton truck. However, there is a lot of talk about using a 1/2 ton. The feedback has all convinced me that I need a 3/4. My next question. What is a good brand of small 5th wheel. I'm accustomed to nice things so I don't want a piece of junk. ansi want a used unit. Is there some place that I tell the world that I'm looking?
  11. Tell me about the trailer you have for sale.

    6ooo pound 30' 5th wheel 750 tung weight empty. i used to have a 38' holiday rambler that i pulled with a 3/4 ton dodge v10. that was 20 years ago. things have changed. Now folks are telling me that i can pull small 5th wheels with a 1/2 ton. i would like to know if it is true.
