Hi all, My question is, are all base RV units built with "loud and louder" AC and furnace blowers? Should we look for anything besides Dometic or Coleman brands in a used 5er? To narrow this down, our 31 foot trailer with roof unit and ducts was very loud and woke us both up at night. We were not living in it full time, and was only occasional use. Now our unit has been totaled by hurricane Mike and we are getting serious about a used fifth wheel purchase and possible full time use. I am pretty sure we will be forced to change the factory units out if we can't stand the noise. I have done some light searching of fifth wheel topics this morning, related to this subject. I see much has been discussed previously so please add any relevant links to said discussions. I have contacted some of you who have units for sale, thank you for your responses.
NEW POST: I have a 2016 DRV that has a house water filter. I always like to carry a spare of things, so I am ready for the next change. I just replaced the factory filter with the same one. They used a CMax MAXETW-975. I was looking at picking up a Culligan filter to replace it next time, https://www.amazon.com/Culligan-SCWH-5-Water-Filter-Cartridge/dp/B00KWJLCXS I connect to water at campgrounds. So my question is, what filter replacements are your using? I hope I worded the question better this time around. ORIGINAL POST: Just woundering what everyone is using for there water filter replacement. My 16 DRV came with a onboard water filter system, a Cmax MAXETW-975 filter is what is used. Are there better filters out there? I was also looking at a Culligan water filter, https://www.amazon.com/Culligan-SCWH-5-Water-Filter-Cartridge/dp/B00KWJLCXS Thanks for your feedback.
Hi folks. May I please have some opinions about whether I should replace my existing tires before going to Alaska? I'll do my own homework and the decision is mine, but help would be great. Facts on existing tires, truck and trailer: 2011 Ford F350 Lariat 4WD, DRW Existing tires: BF Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A LT 245/75R17 121/118R Manufactured August 2010 Tires have 1/4" tread depth and have been rotated, so wear is uniform Tires don't seem to have evident cracking and seem to help pressure well over long time periods Tires have 30,000 miles, about 50% towing 18,000# CarriLite 36XTRM5, balance around town not towing My camper weights 18,000#, so I'm at about 27,000# all-in (truck + trailer) as to GVWR on truck Truck spare is full sized same tire Camper spare is a smaller wheel G614 Goodyear manufactured in 2010 (what it had before I bought G114s and upsized the wheels) Trip Trip is to Alaska leaving May 2016. I'd stay over Winter (not in the RV), then leave Alaska October 2017 back to Seattle Trip is all driving, no ferry. Up shortest round: Cassier, Back: no telling. Probably drive everywhere in Alaska; gravel roads don't worry me All-in, Tampa back down to Seattle: 13,000 miles or more. Gravel and snow won't be unusual If snow, I'd throw chains or socks on Thoughts If I replace the tires now, I'd try to sell the used tires. If selling them was a hassle, then I'd either store them in my warehouse or discard them. I know absolutely zero about used tires and not much about new ones either If I roll with what I have, I'd be at 43,000 miles when I get back to Seattle I have no idea what tread will be left when I return after towing on this journey I can afford to replace them, if this is prudent, but don't want to waste money I have new Goodyear G114s on my camper Questions What should I do on the tires? What tires should I buy? (all season seems to make sense + chains or socks for snow)? Is my existing G614 Goodyear camper spare sufficient? Is having only 1 truck spare sufficient, or should I carry a second? Sorry the long post. I hope all are well.
