RE: Frustration with CW

I don't get it. They can build these trailers in hours and build dozens ever day. So why does it take weeks to get one? Of corse I have never special order anything either.

RE: Hershey 2014 travel trailer follow up

I have a 2011 jayco 26 BH. So far I like it. We are currently finishing up a 2000 mile long 2 week trip with it and haven't had any problems with it. After 2 weeks it does get a bit cramped but for us the camper isn't the destination it's just a place to shower and hang our hats. The pros of the camper are it has a lot of storage. I love the fact that it carries 90 gals of fresh water but you will need to tote be case the gray and black are only 36 gal each. The bunks one our has the double bed on the bottom and single on top,but that gave us a small closet to put the kids clothing. The things I don't are the cheap plastic sinks and tolit.

RE: Question About Pontoon Axles ?

In stead of adding a second axle have you looked at maybe just replacing the current axle with a heavier one?

RE: 4,000 - 4,200 RPM?

My 6.2 in my f250 just loves to be at 4500 rpm when pulling. I have even run it up to 6000 once or twice on these little steep hills in VA and WV

RE: Andersen-3604 Camper Leveler

Something I have noticed is when I have it up on the anderson levelers I don't get as much movement in the camper. I was going to get a set of x chocks but I might not now.

RE: 2015 Chevy 2500HD 6.0L gas Ike Gauntlet

The reason they don't shift the truck manually is because there want to see how well the factory has the shift points mapped out.

RE: Restrictions on RVs in Smithtown, NY

As far as keeping an rv on your property I'm fine with that I got my parked beside my garage. But I don't like the idea of long term parking on the street. Like some else stated it could make ever harder for fire equipment to get down some streets.

RE: Coolers

Add salt to the water in the cooler in it will lower the freezing freezing point of the water and will help keep the ice a bit longer

RE: Best car for towing pop-up

The new Mazda cx5 or the cx7 with the turbo would work well.

RE: Backing up tip

The scoop our what we call in the trucking industry the 45 degree back works well. My biggest problem is were the axles are placed on the camper. I'm used to having the wheels and the very back of the trailer were campers have the wheels more towards the center so the camper cut in faster. Also with the axles in the center position you get a lot more tail swing Wich could be a problem when pulling out of a tight spot and making a hard trun. Also with a lot of rear over hang you have to be more square with a tight spot when backing in.

RE: Mico lever lock supplemental parking brake

Worked for a company that have one on a roll back tow truck. On day the one office Manger took it home to haul his show car. Well he parked the truck on aND only set the micro lock and not the truck brake e brakes. Well he went on to eat dinner and half an hour later the truck was coasting through his yard and plowed in to his dump truck. The Micon locks hold good but don't really no them form your only e brake. Also the pa state inspection law says you must have a mechanical parking brake.

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.
