RE: Adding An Amplified Speaker Sound Bar System

I've been researching doing this myself. I'm will be going with a soundbar/subwoofer setup. Rear wireless satellite speakers would be a bonus, but I'm not holding my breath.

RE: Arctic Fox with Hensley Hitch

As said above, they offer snap up brackets to allow for clearance issues. You probably won't know until you get the trailer, though. The measurement from the center point on the coupler to the mount point with the screw jack brackets is 25-1/2", + or - 1/2". But the actually mounting points for the screw jacks is about 2" away from the edge of the frame. I've seen them mounted on v nose travel trailers before with no issues.

RE: Ecoboost is a Towing Beast

Unfortunately they don't, and that is why I am upgrading to LT tires tomorrow. Let us know how that works out. Both my dealer and the local big tire store say it can't be done because of the TPMS system. The LT tires require more air pressure, and that triggers the TPMS and it can't be re-programmed. Seems like the TPMS parameters in the computer could be reset to higher pressures, or the TPMS units on the wheels could be changed out. Either way, let us know if it really can be done or if there are TPMS issues. From what I understand, the F150 TPMS is a low pressure trigger only. It could care less about high pressure. I have seen several on F150 forums who swapped to LT without any TPMS issues at all.

RE: Hensley arrow on eBay - Worth while upgrade?

I looked at Hensleys but decide they were too expensive, even at $800 as I bought a Reese Dual Cam for 250. Just don't know the advantage when my trailer never meanders. Most of the weaving on trailers is actually cause by tires and if one has a proper anti sway hitch. We changed to Michelin 16in tires from Hercules 15s and it felt like a new TT. While I agree that the Reese DC is a good unit, I don't agree with your comment regarding sway. Loading, where the axles are on the trailer, how much tongue weight, hitch setup (to name a few) are a few of the many ways that can and do affect sway. I used the DC setup for well over a year. IMO, a fair comparison for the HH vs the DC, is much like comparing the DC to a friction sway bar WDH. It is that much better. YMMV.

RE: Hensley arrow on eBay - Worth while upgrade?

I love my Hensley. I purchased my first Hensley for $450 used. I put $100 worth of pins, paint, etc in it. Golden. Second one I purchased for my dad. $200. Not a typo. Different drop shank, plus $150 in parts. Golden. Third one, found for a friend. $800. New shank. $40 in parts. Golden. All were Craigslist finds in the past two years, all were no further than 75 miles from my house. I would say that the 800-1000 range is about right for a used one unless it is in exceptional condition.

RE: Factory installed Awning LED strip brightness.

So, there is a 1% chance that he gets the wrong dimmer. That is why I suggested putting a meter and see what it actually draws. In my case, my LED circuit also had a single (standard) light wired to it as well. So it pulled more than expected. Take thirty seconds to check the amps, or guess. I prefer to check when doing anything electrical.

RE: Factory installed Awning LED strip brightness.

Before getting any of the dimmer models, be sure to stick a volt meter on your existing setup and see what the amp draw is. Then size your dimmer accordingly...

RE: 95 Dutchmen floor rebuild

1. What type of flooring did you use? 2. What did it cost you in materials? 3. Floating Floor? 4. How did you deal with the edges around cabinets and such - quarter round trim or something? 5. How was original carpet attached to the floor?

RE: winter capable travel trailers, older models

KZ Sportsmen is a good choice. I live in East TN, and the northern part of the state sees similar temps as us (winters run maybe 5° colder than me in the valley). Basically, anything with an enclosed underbelly is a good start. He is going to have a steep learning curve at first, but he can get the hang of it if he thinks things through...

RE: Flagstaff 831FKBSS bounce when towing

x2 Are you saying the TT is bouncing, or the rear of your truck is bouncing?

RE: Smoky Mountains in July

In other words - when you go, plan to sweat. If it is cooler, then congrats, you won the lottery. We have a saying in East Tennessee - "Don't like the weather? Come back tomorrow. It will probably be different." Case in Point: Yesterday, we were in low 70's. Today, we are in the high 30s. Friday back up to 60.

RE: Air bags are not?

I use them as well. The adjustability is great for the situations you describe.

RE: Smoky Mountains in July

Even with the cooler temps up in Cades Cover/Elkmont, you are still looking at temps in low to mid 80's in July in East Tennessee. Along with a humidity level in the 50-60 percent range fairly often. The shade and running water help, of course. When we are in the area camping, we can generally make it till 2:00 or so, then we head for the ac.
