• Fifth Wheel Tailgates
    Having attained geezerhood, I found that I'd rather not lift heavy stuff into the back of the truck (like a generator). Several years ago I installed a lift gate, the best mod I've made. I had to choose between that and a 5th wheel gate, and I've never regretted the choice.
  • Cleaning and Waxing the Rig
    I'm with RV Solar. Take the rig to Mexico twice a year for a wash & wax. Otherwise I need 2 days recovery time.
  • Tire rotation pattern for fifth wheel
    I've long since forgotten where I learned this, but the way I do it is:
    finger tighten all of the lug nuts, use the tire iron to snug them down in a criss-cross pattern, torque them down in a criss-cross pattern. Since I have all OEM wheels, I use the torque setting in the owners manual. I'd follow Ray's suggestion for finding the torque setting.
