    Suggestion……pressure regulator goes on the faucet (lowers pressure in hose), filter goes on trailer using an elbow (relieves the stress on trailer water inlet), you might try Zero G hoses (Lowe’s) ….take 1/2 the space and coils like rope.

    LOVE your videos. I'm retiring in about 7 years when I turn 50 and plan on living like this with my wife. We live in the wine country north of SF CA. I have a few questions I'm going you could answer. When you first decided to live this lifestyle, what was the first place you went to? What plans did you make? How far ahead did you plan? Thank you for sharing your travels and experiences.

    In a pinch, a bottle of water will take place of your torpedo level: fill/empty water to a horizontal mark (ridge on bottle, label, etc) and set it inside on the floor or in your pass through- it’ll tell you where level is 😉

    We have our ne E-Pro BHS on order and we are ready. Its 6 long weeks away and we are excited.
    I have noticed that people talk about lug nuts coming loose. That seems unsatisfactory. Any thought given to safety wire. Drill holes through the lugs or buying safety wire lugs (I assume they are an option?) or Loctite at the least with a bead on the threads and put a bead of Loctite on the nut to the non-rotating surface to visually see if they are loose.

    I will never hear bubble level the same again.

    Excellent tip on ignoring google maps time constraints-we have a name for her the b#!÷×+ in the box because she does not allow stops! Lol

    I really like your videos. I'm what you might call a "non-bie" – not even a newbie yet, but I've been researching for a couple of years & think I'm ready to take a stab at it. I think I'll be unpacking my torque wrench after watching this.

    I used to be a long-haul trucker and what I found is the deeper you have something packed away, you won't use it. You know what you'll do is go buy a new one vs unpacking the one you have if you're lucky enough to remember you even have it.

    Hi you guys are Amazing 🙂 THANK YOU FOR SHARING… In the Past the DEALERS for Truck and RV are Not User Friendly if you know what I mean..I'm working on my 3rd Fifth wheel and Towing Truck. It's crazy how much Due Diligence you have to do. FOR example I prefer Gas version so The debate is between the New Ford 7.3 Dually CREWCAB and The GMC 6.2 Gas. Some videos say GMC gets better gas mileage and the ride is much smoother than the Ford BUT the rear seat in the GMC is uncomfortable the tow mirrors are difficult to see with etc etc. My fifth wheel choice is between Alliance 310/340 and The Grand Design Solitude 34ft/37ft

    When we started out fresh with our 5th wheel back in 2005 we were just about clueless. YouTube was just an idea. It’s so nice that mystery is gone and the community of RVing now has a place to share thoughts and idea. Tips and tricks to RVing we’re handing down through generations. It’s really great to hear everyone’s different methods to camping.

    Great advice on reality topics that the community deals with, but rarely discusses. Thanks for doing this video!

    I would add a deep-well socket or 4-6 inch extension for torque wrench it will help to clear the tire side wall if your wheel rims are deep. I would say a few hose clamps also.

    Now Also you can usually find a year old RV that is brand new and the price is significantly cheaper. I got about 10K off the price of mine buying a year old in the fall.
