    Counting down to retirement in 4 years. Enjoying 5th wheeling with boss and 4 rescue Chihuahua mixes and all the chaos that comes with that.

  1. There was a late model Sabre rear entertainment 5er at the last RV park we stayed at. The door side living room slide was the deepest at probably 30 to 36" and it had factory installed supports on the outside edge of the slide indicating that the slide frame/rails weren't strong enough to support the slide on its own. It was a nice looking rig, but I don't think I'd buy one based on that.
  2. This is about the most comprehensive guide I have found and used it for my Ram 3500. Hope you find it as useful as I did. http://www.trailerlife.com/trailer-towing-guides/
  3. With your Genny rated at 49 to 60 decibels, that's impressive! And I was impressed with my Cummins onan 5500 lp rated at 67.
  4. Apparently there IS a first time for everything πŸ˜€
  5. See you solved your own problem, and I'm sure it's appreciated by many. Are you sure you weren't hearing the furnace? I haven't heard of any full-timers complaining of something so minor...campers on the other hand, apparently it is possible. Try to keep your trails happy.
  6. Have you ever had any real world complaints about propane water heaters? My point is that the complaint is rather ludicrous and if one is that sensitive to sound, maybe the dispersed type camping I mentioned before is the better option for them.
  7. Or just run your water heater on electric unless you're boondocking. Why burn your propane when you can use electricity you've already paid for? If you can hear a water heater in the site next to you cycling on gas you need to get a better tent, or ear plugs because I've never heard such a thing from my 5th wheel. Furnaces, maybe but not water heaters.
  8. It was an NFS cg that had a loop that was mixed elect and dry sites, putting both users right next to each otherπŸ€”
  9. All comes down to personal preference which is why I ultimately suggested going with a rental. If I were to do it again as I am one of those thousands of people who rented from CA and relaying my experience, I would try to get a diesel and is the reason why I bought a diesel truck to tow my 5er. That's my preference and it's personal just as yours is. Happy trails Kirk
  10. Trade-offs all the way around just be aware that to my knowledge major rental chains like Cruise America only offer gassers. If you plan on pulling any grades, a diesel is better especially with a lot of weight. We rented a 19 foot class c gasser from CA for a trip to Yellowstone. Two people, two dogs and it was a snail in the hills. You can buy a used diesel but you never know what problems you are inheriting. So, if speed is not a problem and you don't mind crawling up grades, I would probably opt for renting from a nation-wide chain, you will have the support to cover any issues in case you need it.
  11. Some people seem to just have to find any reason to complain. I've read google reviews of our favorite RV park complaining it was too quiet....go figure.πŸ™„
  12. You haven't really "camped" until you stay in a public, destination "recreation" (water, sand etc) sports park on a holiday weekend πŸ˜† I myself try to avoid such places. We prefer mom and pop owned RV parks where they have a good handle on controlling the weekend hero type partiers.
  13. We have mainly used gasbuddy, rvparky and parkadvisor. I will leave ratings and recommendations, mainly good for privately owned parks but don't for public cgs especially if they are hidden gems since I dont want digital popularity to contribute to its demise as a hidden gem.
  14. Agreed, for me, it all depends of the type of demographics of the cg I'm in. In some, I would ask myself and others I would just let the park office know.
  15. Being a good neighbor also entails minding your own business until laws or regulations are being violated and or you are in an actual (not preceived) position of being physically impacted. There seems to be an inherent prejudice against gensets. I've been to a cg where people were griping about a gennie running but nothing was said about noisy AC units running constantly even during quiet hours. People need to grow up, if they don't want what comes with being around others then they need to go to desolate dispersed campgrounds. You can hope that others are a courteous as you but don't expect it.
