RE: Vehicle Speed Sensor

On my 99 F250 it was on the rear axle. Don't know if you could change it.

RE: Sailun Tires

The Sailun S637 is a LT tire rated for trailer use only. I have had them for 2 years and am very pleased.

RE: Opinions on Lippert 6 pt. leveling system

If you can get the Lippert hydraulic 6 point Level up for $2000 you are a fool not get it. The special at the Rally is over $4000.

RE: Rebadging from Dodge to Mercedes Sprinter

Of all the things there are to spend money on, this would be at the bottom of my list. Exactly!X3. Did you get a new title too? If not, it is still a Dodge.

RE: New Tires

I see you are in KC. "Dob's tire" in Blue Springs installed Sailun S637's for me about 2 years ago. They were in a KC warehouse and they were delivered to the store the same day I bought them. Your rims will handle 110 PSI. It is stamped on the back side of the rim. I also suggest you visit the "Heartland Owners forum". There is a lot of discussion about tires there.

RE: Empty Hot Water Tank

I drain mine at the end of the season.

RE: Don't know what to do?

Pin weight is about 20% of the trailer weight. Add to this the weight of the hitch, passengers, and anything else you will be putting in the truck. With a trailer the size you stated you are definitely in the 1 ton truck size. While you can get by with a single rear wheel, a dually will give you a much more stable platform. With a dually you will not notice cross or head winds, and you will not feel a push when a semi passes you.

RE: Brakes not working, Help troubleshooting

Usually you can hear the magnets hum if they are getting current. Check the wiring connections under the trailer near the wheels. You will probably have to remove the electrical tape from the connection first. The wiring will go to one front brake first, then in another wire that goes through the axle, out the other side then into the brake. Another wire will go to the rear wheel, then through the axle like the front one did. A common problem is the wire inside the axle. It can become worn and short out the brake. I just run a wire on the outside of the axle instead of replacing it inside the axle. Secure it to the axle with wire ties. You will have to remove the hubs to check the wiring on the magnets. Many times this wire will break off the magnet. This will require new magnets to fix this. After removing the hub you can pull the break away cable and place a wrench against the magnet to see if it is working.

RE: Generator for 5th wheel RV

Most onboard generators are Onan brand. I had on in my previous 5er but I now have twin Honda's. I miss the on board generator and wish I had invested in one instead of the Hondas. It is so much hassle to get the Honda out for a lunch stop. I really enjoyed the push button convenience of the Onan.

RE: Portable Surge Protector Question

The 50 amp will work on a 30 amp circuit. It measures volts, not amps, and 30 amp and 50 amp are both 120 volts. Just use the adapter to go from 30 to 50, plug in your surge proctor and plug in your power cord. All will work fine.

RE: Visiting National Parks with dog

We volunteered for 5 years at Casa Grande Ruins National Monument in Arizona. Dogs were allowed in the ruins but not in the visitor center unless they could be carried. Their reasoning was that they did not want generators running in the parking lot to power AC's to keep the dogs cool. Not all parks are that dog friendly.

RE: Best Truck For Mountain Driving

Any of the big three will serve you fine, but get a dually diesel. Get the one you like best, not the one someone else likes best.

RE: Help me with roof project please!

New decking and rubber roof is in your immediate future. Hope you have several good friends that like restoration work.

RE: Overdrive or not?

The owners manual is a great source of information. It is based on what the manufacture recommends and not the opinion of people who may not have a clue as to the correct answer.

RE: Generator to run my RV's AC - what do I need?

Your Honda will only produce 1600 watts continously, therefore it will probably not run your AC. You will need a 3000 watt generator, or another 2000i Honda. If you get another 2000,get the Companion and parallel cables.This will have a 30 amp outlet and will give you the full 30 amp service.

RE: Looking for campground near Albuquerque

East of the city, up the canyon, there are some Forest Service campgrounds just off I-40. If you take the road up the back side of Sandia peak there are some. Also some south of I-40.

RE: Axle Self Alignment

If it is not broke, don't fix it. Often the wheels will be closer together on one side because of the tension while back into a site.

RE: Flukely tire pressure monitor

I would leave the spare over inflated. You can adjust it if and when you need it. My pressures are different from front to back so I inflate to the higher pressure. I can deflate if I need it on the lower pressure location.

RE: Tire rotation with duals

I have rotated side to side but decided it was not worth it so I have quit doing this.

RE: Water pump issue

The check value in the city water connection is stuck open. Stick your finger in and wiggle the white piece.
