RE: Propride 3 P question

Yes, it is longer. However, you can actually turn sharper than most standard hitches. I didn't do a before/after comparison on mine, so I don't know the difference in turning radius. I do know, however, that due to the cam action in the hitch head, it might actually turn a little tighter than before. When making a turn, the hitch head shifts to the other side, which changes the angle between the trailer and TV.

RE: What happens when you lose a tire at 70-75 MPH?

A friend of mine found out the same thing. Lippert bought Dexter and quit offering the replacement parts on their axles. Dexter bearing are practically the same, but IIRC they are 4mm difference in size. A lot of people were upset about the axles being discontinued, as they were on relatively newer campers. There were no issues with them that I heard. It was most likely Lippert simply saving on manufacturing costs. He did as you did and replaced with Dexter axles and standard bearings. However, he wasn't offered the same deal that you were.

RE: New Propride

If there is still a thick coating of paint on the stinger, would be a good idea to sand it off. Can make a big difference.

RE: Traveling from WI to MA with new TT!! HELP!!

I wouldn't want to make that drive in two days. I'd allow for at least 2.5 days. 3 preferably.

RE: What happens when you lose a tire at 70-75 MPH?

I find all of these armchair experts opinions hilarious. They were not there, but they are very sure of themselves... One even said that we shou;d have smelled it!! Just how does one "smell" what is happening bhind hind them at 70MPH? One vguy says that the tire came off close to home when we did the swerve manuvuer. Another is sure that at our last fuel stopm, that a better inspection would have revealed the trouble... That was at least 150 miles prior Obviuously, at least one of these "experts" has to be wrong! Reality is they are likely both wrong. They do agree on one thing though... This incident was somehow our fault. Really? No one is saying that it's your fault. But at least for myself I can say that yes that condition probably existed for at least 150 miles to get bad enough to separate the wheel from the spindle. And it is VERY LIKELY that you would have felt a significant increase in heat on that wheel at that stop. That bearing was going bad for a long time not hours but probably months. But Something tells me you dont routinely walk around and feel each wheel at fuel stops. And if you dont want honest answers and hear what others with experience have to say probably best not to post this kind of story. If all you wanted was an echo chamber of sympathy this was a bad choice of venue to seek it in. You, sir, put a great post out there. Bravo!

RE: Please recommend a campground near I-75 south of Atlanta Ga

Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions. We have a spot reserved at Twin Oaks.

RE: What happens when you lose a tire at 70-75 MPH?

Once again, the importance of a tire pressure monitor system on a towed vehicle is illustrated. If the temp increase didn't show up (which it likely would have), I guarantee that the lack of a wheel would have caused an alarm. :-) I'm assuming on hohenwald48's post above, his TPM system wasn't installed on his jeep being towed. If it was, then something wasn't working right - lthough I have heard stories of tread separation happening but leaving the inner carcass intact. At the very least, if the TPMS had temperature monitoring I'm sure it would have alarmed.

RE: Yes you can drive 55 and 60.

55-60 for me as well. Amazing how much less stress there is when you don't have to worry about someone slamming brakes on in front of you, etc. Flick the lights to the let the semi's know it's save to come back over and all is good.

RE: x-tend a chock resilience...

I know of one guy who folded up one of chocks by forgetting it. Turned it into a pretzel and he was very lucky didn't pierce a tier. Surprising, for once it wasn't me. LOL

RE: tire pressure monitor systems

Not that I've ever heard. I think most people don't even know what they are.

RE: Bonehead move no. 251

My rule of thumb is that when I pull a pin, I keep it in my hand until it is properly secured. And before I leave, I do a final walk around, every time, looking at my hitch, the TT, windows, storage doors, entry doors, awning, etc etc. This covers for any distractions I had while hooking up.

RE: Tangled in cords

A roll of masking tape and fine tip sharpie. Cheap as dirt and works like a champ. My 14yo son stores all of them in a backpack with his playstation (for rainy days) and only pulls out what he needs.

RE: Disaster with Windjammer 2715 vs

Glad the OP is ok. On a side note, not very much information to figure out why the tire blew. Could have been bad tire. Could have been tread separation/heat/blowout. An alligator could have latched on right before leaving the gas station. In other words, we have no idea what led to the blowout. And honestly, I took from the OP that it wasn't a statement on crappy tires, it was a statement to see how her insurance claim turns out.

RE: TrackMaster grenade

Heat would likely have gone up pretty quickly in the tire, tpms would likely have given a heads up. Appears to be straight up tread separation.

I've seen it before and I still love it.

RE: awning leaking at the connection

Here's a link to a video of replacing the awning fabric. Watching it, may give you some pointers on where to look, and what to seal. My awning had a leak where there was a butt joint in the track that the fabric slides into. From the roof, I could see a bead of caulking that was supposed to seal that joint. The caulking had cracked. I cleaned it up and recaulked (non leveling dicor lap sealant). All is good. x2 - mine had the same joint above the door that wasn't sealed well.

RE: Hensley Arrow Maintenance Parts

Squirt some motor oil in at the top access hole and spin them a bit. Works like a champ. Makes a mess. I live with it.

RE: Hensley Arrow Maintenance Parts

When you buy the kit, go ahead and add two addtional zerk fittings to your order. They will fit in the same box and it will save you some shipping. I always keep a couple on hand, as they are a wear item. IMO, it is one of the few weaknesses of the HA - I would rather have a separate retention pin for the bars and then a standard grease fitting.

RE: Honest feedback on fuel

You can figure on an easy 500/axle to swap gears out. And then the speedo has to be reprogrammed as well.

RE: Blowing out water lines?

Once season starts, I never drain. However, we rarely if ever drink from the faucet. Cleaning and showers only...
