    September 5We concur with the last suggestion. Try hot water first. If it doesn't soften enough, try boiling water. If that doesn't do it, the hair dryer will but be careful that it doesn't get too soft and sag out of shape.

    August 28Newbie question-I have a 40' 5th wheel with 5 slides. Planning close to full time living in it, but only staying a month or less at any location. More boondocking than rv parks.

    What's the highest wind velocity you've experienced while camping? What ...  more

      KurtO August 28 Suzy, I too have a 40 foot fifth wheel. I have been camped (we usually use a campground) in 50-60 mph winds and we barely knew it was blowing. The biggest issue will be if you are driving and have a crosswind. Any questions pm me.
    • Suzy Compton
      Steve & Diane August 29 60+ mph while camping; gusting to 50+ while driving.  We have a 39' fifth wheel.

      Lyle & Jan Huff August 29 We carry a NOAA weather radio that alerts us about severe weather, but if you're boondocking there is no storm shelter to go to. We've spent many hours in park storm shelters and seen a lot of damage at parks. Slide in before leaving for the shelter. Some...  more

      Gary & Lynn and Scott McNeel August 29 Suzy, We have a similar 5er with 5 slides and on the Oregon Coast we have had sustained wind of over 40 mph with gusts up to 60 and other than some minor rocking, have had no damage.

    August 25We have an ac unit that leaks water into our camper,when it shuts off at temp we set. Can anyone tell me y and how we can fix this. My hubby has cleaned it. Checked everything he could. Help plz

      KurtO August 25 Did he go up on the roof and check the ac drains? Sounds like it is backing up and the overflow is getting in the ducts.
    • The Allgoods
      Big G & Lou August 25 If you’re talking about dripping after it shuts down, it’s possibly freezing up in high humidity. Then melting after it warms! I had one that would do that , in High humidity, until the coach air cools and humidity lowers
    • The Allgoods
      JVBV August 26 I agree with all the other commenters as possibilities. Easy button at this point is to call a certified technician and have he/she diagnose and repair. Continued water leakage will lead to more problems. Good luck!

    • VicTom
      JVBV August 20 I've seen lifts for motor coaches but not fifth wheels (it's even hard to find a bicycle rack certified for ,5th wheels!) Some states allow you to tow another trailer behind the 5th wheel. Worst case, ride the bike and have your wife drive the right! Good luck!
    • VicTom
      Larry and Gayla August 20 DRV has one called the “Full House” that is a toy hauler for your bike.

      Rick & Lil August 21 That bike is too big & heavy to "hang" off the back of a 5th wheel trailer. Hanging that much weight of the rear (if it would even be allowed by the manufacturer (DRV)) or structurally, would be a nightmare to modify the frame to accommodate not only the ...  more
