Yes, I had seen that video before.

As in my sig, I have a '13 F350 supercab long bed diesel.  I also have the factory gooseneck ball, a real nice feature!  The hitch frame is about 40 inch square at the base, and is centered over the axle.  There is a couple feet or a bit more in front of the hitch, I think.  The truck has other stuff in the bed right now, so I can not measure it for you.  Visit a local camper dealer when you get home.  He should be willing to pull one out of the box and sit it in place in the bed.

One other note on buying the hitch - Andersen will not allow dealers to ADVERTISE a price below $XXX for the hitch, but they may sell them for less.  I saved about $100 buying mine from the local RV dealer rather than buying on line at the fixed ad price.

While I continue to bang my head on the wall regarding our wet bath layout and the plumbing for the shower, we did have one Sunday success: Dynamat!

I found this stuff when researching car stereo upgrades and thought it'd be a great addition to our RV cabin.  We plan to put tan automotive carpet on top of it. Should quiet the ride up substantially.

One question for y'all. I get a shudder at around 60 to 65 and again at 70ish.  I have not had the tires balanced sense I got the vehicle but I've always experienced out of balance tires to shake at most all speeds. Are there other fixes I should be aware of for the P30 chassis?

Yes that is a photo of Dynamat and a cat  8)

Not so. A "poor wire contact" would be defined as one with a greater resistance than normal.  Ohm's law states that current is equal to voltage divided by resistance. Therefore, a high resistance contact would result in decreased, rather than increased current.

I stand corrected. ;)
Seller had it for only 3 years, him and his wife always plugged in, and never used if off the battery. And I checked, plugging it in works fine, just not working off the battery.

I am getting a lot of calls from marketers (if that's what you want to call them) that have seen my RVTrader.com post and say they will place my RV on a number of websites for a "refundable" fee if they don't sell it for me in an certain amount of time.  Not sure if that is a scam or not. 

If you can find them.
How about Craig's List.

Contact the seller whether it was a private sale or through a dealership.

Yes, Jeff was talking about the Rayzar when he said he hadn't seen one in person.

I think going for the older MH is the way to go, but that's because that's what I have. TO ME a MH is much less trouble to travel in and setup than a trailer. I had a couple trailers 40 years ago but have had either a class C or a Class A for the last 35 years. There are a LOT of older coachs out there that are low mileage, and still in very good condition.  You can buy a lot of coach for 25 grand if you stay gas. My old Dolphin had right at 30,000 on the clock when I bought it last year, and it runs great.
Trailers & Fifthwheels / Re: Towing with a Chevy Tahoe

Max tongue wt WITHOUT a WD hitch is 500#.  Max trailer wt is 8600#, and with a WD hitch, it can carry the 10% of 8600# weight.

HOWEVER, that 8600# refers to the total weight of the TT, including contents, NOT dry wt that the salesman will push.  It also includes ONLY 2 passengers at 150# each and NO CARGO IN THE TAHOE.  Read the small print they do not want you to notice.

In the real world, reduce the 8600# Max Trailer Wt by 10% for safety and options on the Tahoe, leaving 7740#.  The gross weight of the fully loaded TT PLUS the weight of all passengers and cargo in the Tahoe should not exceed about 8000# (Remember the 300# allowance for passengers?)

Do some quick math and subtract the weight of the family from 8,000#.  Deduct a couple hundred pounds for the WD hitch and other misc cargo.  That is the max gross weight TT you can tow.
