RE: Where to buy good semi-cheap ratchet socket set in USA?

I hate to say it but, a lot of Craftsman Tool production has now been moved over to China and it's quality has fallen dramatically. If you have a good older set of tools that serves your needs and the only problem is the box you will be better off to just find a new box. You have to pay good money now to find good quality tools. Spend a lot of money on new tools or, get a new box, and keep the good tools you already have. I will no longer buy craftsman tool now that there made in China I'm looking at kolbolt tools from lows. And yes I know there made in China too

RE: Hubby went crazy!

Should have ask him if he could have panted the trailer to match the truck. But it still looks cool.

RE: Los Angeles law against sleeping in cars unconstitutional

This reminds me of the Ohio laws. It is against the law for me to go to sleep in my motor home on any state lands including rest areas as it is considered camping. If I am in a car or tractor trailer that is fine I can sleep undisturbed. Just RV's are prohibited except in designated camping areas. I found this out at 1:30 AM when a State trooper knocked on my door to tell me I had to move as no camping was allowed. The cars and trucks were not disturbed. Trooper was nice and told me it was a state law and he had to enforce it. I had just pulled in to sleep not cooking, chairs or other camping accoutrements just sleeping as I was tired. That's when you back into his cruiser and tell him sorry guess I was too tired to drive .

RE: Not enough truck and here is what happens

Now that's how you get to your camping spot. Did anyone else notice that the truck had 6 bolt wheels with a full floating rear axle. Too bad we can't get those types of trucks over here.

RE: Springdale 298BH 8th year owners report (long)

I'm hoping to be able to post a report like that about my new to me tt. Its 2011 Jayco 26 BH. I'm hoping that with some maintenance it will last a long time and I'm planing on having a good time in it with my family

RE: Tongue Weight

Think of your trailer like a playground teeter-todder. Tank sitting in the middle (where the wheels are - fulcrum) won't teeter or todder either way...It's nuetral and no affect on the tongue weight. If the axles were dead center of the trailer I would agree 100%. But most trailers the axles are just rear of center. So if your water tank is above our just ahead of the axles it will add some tongue weight. How much I don't know because I was never that good at math.

RE: Pushing the limits on tow vehicles

I know it's still over weight but what's wrong with 30 MPH on a hill fully loaded. My semi truck has a hard time on those hills.

RE: integrated trailer brake controller

The IBC and the Tow/Haul make for an extremely satisfying towing experience. Both a must have IMHO! 20 yes; 0 against; Seems like you have a consensus. Wow I don't think I have ever seen that

RE: rusty frames common on older Silverados?

If you think the frame looks bad just take a close look at the brake and gas lines.

RE: The nice thing about old trailers

Trailers now a days won't be around in 20(+) yrs. unless they have been parked on a permanent site. And it's not just trailers....cars, trucks etc. I hope with some maintenance My Jayco will be around in 20 years

RE: Bed Supports

If they were any thing like mine were. You could get a pice of conduit And crimp one end and cut and bent to fit. Or you find a dealer that sells that make call them up and ask them.

RE: looking at tt

I often see these as rental tt. Thus, one tough, idiot-proof trailer. You know what happens when you idiot proof something.. they just make better idiots :) Well that's all good stuff to here. I was going to take my ladder with me go look at the roof and check the seams and if ever thing looks good I will probably end up buying it.

RE: My Parent's 1984 Starcraft Starflyer 19

Unless you want to make the trip you could hire it out and have someone load it up on a flat bed and hual it out to you.

RE: I am thinking the answer will be "yes"

Maybe I'm not seeing something here. But loaded up to 11300 the hitch weight would be around 1800 pounds on the high end. You have 2700 pounds of pay load, a good WD hitch can move weight from the rear axle to the front. So why couldn't you pull this TT safely ?

RE: '15 F450 - Towing Capacity 31,200 lbs

Towing 31,000 lbs in a pickup truck is nuts.

RE: Which motor should we get.

There is no replacement for displacement. The 8.1 in the gm did have the 6 speed allys for two years. 2006 and 2007 classic
