I used a Andersen Ultimate for 6 years with my 3400RL and a short-bed Ram SRW, with never once an issue. I'm now on my second Ultimate hitch with a new 5th wheel. Same truck though. If backing...

I feel that way about a long bed. Yes, in my mind, it (the extra length) makes ALL the difference. For 6 years now, I've proved it makes no difference, EXCEPT for the difference in looks. I pulled a...

Sorry
to hear about the rear window. I agonized over the bed-length decision 6 years ago with my 3400RL. Because of several reasons (Biggest of which was I hate the looks of the long-beds) I chose...

Save your money!

Seriously. Save the money. There's no reason to cover your RV for the winter. If you actually want to protect your RV during outside storage, you should be covering it during the SUMMER. That's when...

If I'm camping and I can hear your music, you're bothering me. I love music in my trailer, but outside music is taboo in my mind. Unless you're positive there's NOBODY within earshot.

Care to explain why? I've done so many, many times without issue. There's no risk in using an adapted 30A pedestal. You are simply restricted to one A/C unit.

I have the Andersen Ultimate hitch, so there's zero chance of dropping the hitch on a tailgate. It serves zero purpose for me and I think they're really ugly so nope. I like being able to hide things...

Still ugly. In fact they're "fugly". But they serve a purpose. I'll just NEVER cross that weight line because of that reason. My SRW Ram diesel will pull all I'll ever want. It did my Montana 3400RL...

No, that's a legitimate reason, for sure! It's all the bantering discussion of physics and mechanical engineering opinions that make me laugh.

You mean besides the fact that it requires 2 men or a hoist to remove it, it leaves rails in your bed full time, they're noisy as heck and need greasing? Besides that? Nothing at all.

Why wouldn't the overflow simply go straight up the vent pipe to the roof and avert damage? Isn't the roof vent a direct pipe into the black tank?
