  • Propane leak
    One final question, where did you get the made in USA ones? Nosing around on Amazon they don't offer up just where most of them are made. Which I assume means China, short of asking the question on each listing.

    Thanks for the reply. I was surprised to see two leaks where you had them with little to no obvious hose degradation. You have convinced me in the spring when I get my 5th wheel out of storage I am going to do a quick spray test or buy a propane leak detector and keep and eye on things a bit more. Good stuff, thanks again.

    Just curious, not trying to be a critic. I know nothing about working with gas. I didn't see you wrap or coat threads with gas rated pipe seal (Teflon tape). I see you tested for leaks,and didn't have any. So is that pipe seal stuff an optional thing? Just needed if you don't get a good seal?

    One vote for Coach-Net, we have it and it covers all our vehicles plus our 5th wheel. You can purchase it for a motorhomes, travel trailer and 5th wheels. We have only used it one time in 3 years to have our SUV towed, the battery just went out with no warning out of the blue. I preferred it to be towed to the GMC dealer because it still had a warranty on it. It was a bit further then where they suggest to tow it. I offered to pay any additional charge to go to the GMC dealer, thinking if it had other issue the warranty would cover them. They said no problem and don't worry about the additional miles. They asked if my wife and I where in a safe spot and if we needed a ride to a motel or anything they would handle that too. They called the tow facility and then report back to me when the tow truck should arrive. They called back to see if he had arrived at that time. He hadn't, and they said let us call him and find out just why hes late. They did that and reported back he would be on site in 15 minutes. The tow truck arrived and 5 minutes after that they called again to make sure he arrived. Once the vehicle was towed they made one finally call just to make sure we were happy with everything that had been done. They aren't the cheapest service $179.00, but I don't believe you will find anything better. I have had AAA in the past and they were fine too. But I personally think Coach-net's service is a notch above them. But I will admit I had AAA a few years back. We just both feel when we are broke down we want the very best service you can get. I have read some negative posts on RV-Net forums on Good Sams so I just steered clear. I guess its all a personal choices.
  • Ram Factory M20 Hitch Update - Solved my Disconnect Issue
    Pulled my 5th wheel to the dealer to drop it off for some warranty work yesterday. I tried this and it made for such a positive and smother unhook. I kept looking at the handle and thinking maybe mine doesn't work the same. Since the notch was hidden in the handle where you can't see it. I was left thinking now why didn't I think to try that. Once again I tip my hat to you sir VERY NICE discovery.

    You don't lock jaws in the open position when your hooking up to tow do you? I would think locking arm in the open position would be counter productive for jaws to safely lockup for towing.
  • Ram Factory M20 Hitch Update - Solved my Disconnect Issue
    Thanks for sharing this, I have a Chevy 3500 with a Curt Q 20 which is basically the same 20K hitch. At times I have the same issue as you have been having. I have leaned to leave a little wait on the fifth wheel when unhooking and at time I just reach over the side and holds the handle in the release potion as I my wife pulls the truck forward. I did't know you could lock the handle in the released position like that. I will give that a try on my next unhook. Thanks again some good info.
