  1. Hi all, I'm thinking about purchasing a folding electric bike. I still want the exercise of a bike but want a little push up hills etc. I am 5'9" and weigh 137. The one I'm looking at is under $500 and weighs about 30 pounds. I want something I can still get a workout on. Would love any input. Thanks!
  2. Thanks again for all your input! You have given us much valuable information.
  3. The printed material from MORryde has a section on determining the rubber shear spring deflection. The springs are not separating laterally. The deflection is a vertical measurement. The deflection has gone from 2.5 inches to 1inch after less than 3 months and 7000 miles. It sounds like they might not have put a strong enough shear spring based on the weight. Or the hydraulic shock is failing.
  4. It's a 2017 Ambition. We think we're just under 20k pounds loaded. It appears that the gap the rubber shear springs has narrowed from 2 1/2 inches to about 1 inch. Thanks!
  5. Hi all, We just switched from axels to MorRyde independent suspension system on our fifth wheel in April. We are very pleased with ride and stability. We are concerned after seven thousand miles that the rubber shear springs and hydraulic shocks are not preforming the way we were led to believe. We would love to hear from anyone who has done this conversion. Thanks!
  6. Hi all, Quick update- I called DirecTV (one hour on the phone!). They said to disregard the email. I told them that the email said that "federal law does not allow DNS signals in a permanent resident". They said my account didn't need to worry about it. I have already sent in all the information they requested. They assured me it won't matter. We'll see.......
  7. Hi all, My hubby and I have a sticks and bricks but are on the road at least 6 months of the year. We have been DirecTV customers for 20+ years. When we travel we take our DVR boxes from the house and transfer them to the rv. I just got an email from them saying that they needed us to provide them with vehicle registration. I plan on calling them but I thought I'd check to see if anyone else has had this request. I think they will want us to establish a second account for the rv. I think we give them enough money as it is. Thanks in advance. I'm going to post this on another forum as well.

  9. Hi all, We have spent over ten years active rving (over six months on the road a year) and had five new fifth wheels (not pre-owned). We continue to have trouble with our kitchen sink waste tank valve. We are very careful to wipe down our dishes to remove grease before we wash them. My husband has replaced the valves but we seem to end up at the same place repeatedly. I have used dishwasher detergent and hot water (a YouTube suggestion) with no luck. I know the cable from the valve to the outside has had an impact on some of the valves but ultimately the valves eventually become so clogged they won't move. So we would love to hear about a new kind of valve or a new way of cleaning/emptying that would help us. Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi, We have tile in our entire fifth wheel except on one of the living room slides. We also have a senior dog who is deaf and has a bit of doggie dementia. We are loosing the battle of preserving the carpet (of course that's the only place he likes to pee!). We want to replace the carpet with tile. We have done research, found a few Youtube videos and think it's a project we can tackle. We'd love to hear from anyone who have done it. I also have concerns about anchoring the recliner stadium seating on that side (hubby says he's got a plan but I'm dubious). Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi all, Our water pump does weird things. Most times no problem. Sometimes when you turn it on it runs without any water running. It stops by running water sometimes, by turning it off then back on sometimes, or by just turning it off. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  12. He has to have bloodwork done every time. Plus there are insurance restrictions. At this point we've had three different doctors confirm this is the best course of action.
  13. Hi all, No one has been able to find the problem with our fireplace. We have had it in the shop, taken it back to the manufacturer and contacted the fireplace company. We have an Ambition fifth wheel made by Augusta and a Greystone fireplace. It cuts out occasionally. Right now it has been running fine for two day. Then it cuts out-sometimes in an hour or two, sometimes in a day or two. When you try to restart it cuts out within a minute. Obviously one of the problems is that it doesn't cut out consistently. Augusta sent us a new a new fireplace. Greystone sent us a new motherboard thinking that the replacement might be from a bad lot Augusta might have had. Augusta also reworked the wiring to the outlet. We took the fireplace out and ran it in the house, it ran fine. We plugged two space heaters in the outlet, they ran fine. Nothing indicated that there is anything wrong. Any thoughts on this mystery? Any more diagnostics we might try? A real head scratcher! Thanks in advance!
  14. Hi all, We have been very active RVers for nine years. We do own a home but travel at least six months of the year. We've been to Alaska twice, every state in the lower 48 as well as BC, Alberta, Nova Scotia, PEI and Newfoundland. We mix volunteering with touring. It has be been such a wonderful adventure. One year ago my husband was diagnosed with mylodisplactic syndrome (MDS), what they call pre-leukemia. He is what they call low to intermediate risk right now. He has been stable since his diagnosis. At some point he may need a bone marrow transplant but for now he just requires shots every one to two weeks. Needless to say it put a crimp in our travel last year. We were able to get away for six weeks. It took lots planning and record transferring. Everything went well though. We are currently on another six week trip. The planning and record transfer has been much more difficult. His doctor says that he could stay stable like this for four or five years. Also any health decline will be slow so no risk of a sudden problem. We want to try another big trip to Alaska. I am sure that many of you have health conditions but continue to travel. I would love to hear positive stories about your experiences. Thanks in advance!
  15. Hi all, We have a 40 foot Augusta Ambition fifth wheel. We have a progressive industries power management system which has a read out of power in and out. The power is divided between two lines. Of course we keep the power output under 50 amps. Should we also try to keep each line under 25 amps? On occasion one line has gone over 25 amps with no breakers blowing but I wasn't sure it was good to do. Thanks in advance!
