RE: Fifth wheel damage

If your hydraulic front jacks are bent, being that they are fastened to the frame, be careful. A friends landing gear was bent from dropping the trailer and resulted in bending the frame. They totaled his rig. Get an expert to perform a repair estimate for your insurance company.

RE: Need new tires

Maxxis M8008 ST tires are proven and a great trailer tire. I'm on my second set and have had no problems with them. I hear Goodyear has a new ST tire coming out, but until they've been out a few years and tested in the real world, I'd stick with Maxxis. Be sure to have the balanced with new steel valve stems.

RE: Shocks which do you have and why?

Though I don't have a dually, I just installed a set of KYB MonoMax shocks on all 4 corners on my 2007 Dodge 2500 CTD. I had Bilstiens on my other truck and they are very good. However, I'm am thoroughly impressed by the KYB's ride and no bouncing of the front when stopping. They are also less expensive than the Bilstiens, which was a factor for me.

RE: Blythe Island Regional Park GA

If the odor from the pulp mill doesn't get you, the smelly water will. Sulphery. The only place I know where you smell worse after taking a shower than before. I've stayed with friends on Blythe Island, they're use to it.

RE: I bought a Fifth-Wheel

Welcome to the "fivers" gang. Good advise so far. I wouldn't check the wheel bearings, I'd replace them along with grease seals. Be sure to check not only the brakes, but the wiring to the magnets. Enjoy your trailer.

RE: Best wheel bearing grease

Lucus red is a good synthetic grease. It exceeds specs and is a quality lube. I've used Amsoil grease for years with good success, also a high quality grease. You've chosen wisely.

RE: Carlisle or Maxxis

My Maxxis M8008 are made in Thailand and I don't care. This is the second trailer I've installed them on and they are by far the best ST tires I have ever used. . Maxxis is an international company with a large variety of tire types sold in North America, from bicycles to extreme off road tires. Their ST tires have a great reputation not only on this forum, but throughout the RV community. Go with the Maxxis.

KYB Mono Max Shocks

Just ordered a set of these shocks for my 2007 Dodge 2500 CTD. I had Monroes which were too soft, especially when towing my fiver. Anyone have KYB Mono Max shocks on their TV? If so, how do you like them?

RE: Bad back-Mattress Recommendations?

The Original Mattress Factory will make a mattress to fit your RV. You can visit one of their stores and try all their models, then give them the dimensions you want and they'll make it just for you. Easy, eh?

RE: LED headlight conversion

This is the OP. Thanks for all the responses, though as usual on here, many conflicting views I agree that LED replacement bulbs vary drastically based on brand and cost, both in quality and design. After looking at the reflector in my stock headlamp housing, I can see how an LED bulb might not be focused causing problems for oncoming traffic in my low beams. At this time, I can't afford to replace the complete headlamp housing assembly with ones designed for HID or LED lamps. SO, I think I'll study the many LED bulbs and install a pair in my hi-beams as I won't have to worry about on coming traffic and I can get a good idea on how good they'll light up the road. We'll see what happens, especially at night.

LED headlight conversion

The headlights in my 2007 Dodge 2500 are very poor, especially after driving my daughter's 2016 Toyota with LED headlights. I have aimed them with my 5'er hooked up and my airbags adjusted to keep my TV level. I saw LED H13 bulbs on Amazon reasonabilily priced I am considering. Has anyone tried these LED bulbs? Do you like them?

RE: clean new style flat windows

I've used a magic eraser sponge with water to remove spots and stains on glass and windshields. Mr. Clean is one brand name. Fine enough to not scratch the glass.

RE: Heater Core Replaced, Now Blows Cold Air

Like Krusty said, very likely an air pocket is not allowing circulation through the heater core. Touch both hoses where they enter the box, after the engine reaches operating temperature, if only one is hot , apply vacuum to the nipple where the green wire is connected. Oh, that's a hose not a wire. If the hoses still aren't hot to the touch, bring it to a shop that can bleed the air from your cooling system. Also make sure your water pump is circulating the coolant. Good luck

RE: Size of Alternator

They did offer a 90A and a 120A in 1990. Take your old alternator down to your auto parts store and compare them. The 90A should be a simple swap, but I'm not sure which 120A would bolt up. Also, as mentioned, check for excessive Voltage drop between the alternator and batteries. Even cleaning the terminals and cable ends can help. Good luck.

RE: Travel trailer "vs" fith wheel --MPG to tow

I actually get better MPG towing my Columbus fiver than I did my 26' Jayco TT. I'm sure aerodynamics plays the biggest part. Towing the Jayco TT was like pulling a big square box down the road. This is with my 6.7 CTD.

Hope you had the new tires balanced!

RE: Champion generators

I've got a 7 year old Champion 3500/4000. That's a good price in today's market. I have mine on the back of my fiver. I use it in the boonies, truck stops, or in storage when working at the trailer. It's run for 8 hours straight under a good load, stopping only once for fuel. It's no Honda or Yamaha, but for $250 it can't be beat.

RE: Do not buy the bed linen at CW! RANT

CW sells bras and underwear? Since when? Think they have some for my Columbus fiver?

Trailer brake shoe wear

I'll be packing my trailer's wheel bearings, adjusting the brakes, and replacing the grease seals this weekend. Anyone have an idea what the minimum thickness should be on the brake shoes? I know they're nowhere near as thick as automotive brake shoes so I would guess the minimum suggested thickness wouldn't be that much.

RE: Travel Trailer Tires

There are only 2 brands of 14" ST tires worth considering; Maxxis and Kumho. Both are quality ST tires, neither are made in China. I've used Maxxis on my last 3 trailers. They are, in mine and many peoples' opinion, the best ST tire on the market. Be sure to have your new tires balanced, too.
