RE: BOY I REALLY DID IT NOW!!

Regardless of how or what is stripped, it's not something the OP needs to deal with in the case of a flat on the road. Get it fixed now, or pay a lot more to get it fixed on the highway...

RE: AC vents modification

Considered cutting my vent stacks, just haven't done it yet. And if you haven't opening the grill on the AC unit and looked how it is sealed hot side to cold side, you probably should. I gained a tone of volume just sealing the unit like it should have been sealed. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Good ole BlowMax tires

The link I posted earlier was a D rated tire. And it had nothing to do with what weight it was carrying. It was a manufacturing defect, as the belts were not adhered to the rubber properly... Of course, in the fifth wheel forum, most are indeed likely E rated. The link posted was a travel trailer.

RE: Question for Glowstep owners

Mine are getting stiffer as well. Debated on a dry lube or the bolt loosening. Be advised, do VERY little on the bolt loosening. One member went to far and they extended very fast on him...

RE: Good ole BlowMax tires

To the OP - looks eerily familiar to this one. Tire Engineer Forum My suggestion would be to email your pics to him and he will tell you the probable cause (assuming pics are good enough). My guess is a straight up tread separation. Which, by the way, isn't called a "blowout" in the tire world. FYI, a TPMS WILL NOT usually give a prewarning on such a failure. Why? A tread separation doesn't generate enough heat to show on the TPMS. And pressure generally stays pretty close until the actual failure, of course. I sure does look like seam that came apart. The seam happened after the fact. Tread separation occurred causing the failure. The seam occurred when the brakes were hit, dragging the deflated tire on the road and ripping it.

RE: Load Range E tire pressure: how do you keep them up?

Even better - get a TPMS so you aren't losing all that air checking them...

RE: Used/2014 Grey Wolf 26DBH - Insulation in AC vents

Most of the ones I've seen have the directional vent going through a hole cut into the ductwork, as opposed to simply a hole that hopes to hit the vent. Very odd there...

RE: Used/2014 Grey Wolf 26DBH - Insulation in AC vents

Well, that's a first for me. Never seen that before. Time to get creative with some sheet styrofoam and duck tape, it seems. If you can't shift the ducting, that's the only choice other than dropping the ceiling. You MIGHT get luck by bringing it to the attention of a dealer who sells grey wolf. Even though out of warranty, you might get lucky as it's obviously a misbuild or bad product quality.

RE: Load Range E tire pressure: how do you keep them up?

I fill my once a year. A few pounds over so they last for a year. Never have to add inbetween. Weigh your trailer then go by the tire chart for the correct amount. 80 may be too high.???I'm finding this hard to believe. I air up my Maxxis 8008 tires using my air compressor. I check them every 3-4 weeks, and they are always 5-10 lbs low. Do you run a TPMS? If so, the sensors may be flexing enough (while driving) to cause the stems to leak. Especially if you don't have metal stems. Otherwise, something is wrong, as that is WAY to much loss in 3-4 weeks. I typically hit mine at the beginning of the season and it lasts the rest of the season until colder weather hits.

RE: ST225/75R15 Trailer Tires

It is actually 10 ply and 8 ply. The ten is E rated, and the 8 is D rated.

RE: ST225/75R15 Trailer Tires

The issues with taking counts on forums and such is that we don't know how much of the trailer tire business each manufacturer has. If Maxxis has 75% of the business, it would stand to reason that they would have more incidents occur because more of their tires are on the road. If we knew production data of the various brands, and then could get a count of issues, that would be a better way for us to know the percentage of failures. Myself, I put several thousand miles on my old trailer with maxxis with zero issues. Just put a set on my new trailer and expect the same. I personally know of a set with over 80,000 on a car hauler. Trouble free. I have 100% confidence in my Maxxis STs.

RE: Glowsteps $50.00 off

X2! Appears the aluminum is simply acting as a giant heat sink. Which it should. Very interesting indeed.

RE: Anyone ever broke a chain hook-up on WD hitch?

Have heard of them bending in the case of reese dual cam setups, but never heard of one breaking. Carry a spare and I guarantee it will never break.

RE: Recommendation for Tow Vehicle Bed Cover

Regarding the Bakflip VP, I would install this over a in-bed tool box. I see from the various youtube videos that the cover, where it is hinged extends out into the bed a few inches to give the cover enough room to fold up against the cab. The reason I ask, is I wonder if there is enough room for the lid of the toolbox to open and not hit the cover when the cover is completly opened and resting up against the back of the cab. The toolbox would need to be moved a bit to clear the bedcover when opened. It's at least 3", maybe 4" that stays flat on the bed. Bakflip also makes the "BakBox". Made to sit on the bakflip rails, but slide underneath the cover when not in use. Pretty darn neat, although I have never gotten one. Bakbox

RE: Making a 30A extension cord.

x2 on Golden HVACs idea. However, if you would still prefer the 30a version, you can always work a bit of the very outer layer of the #8 wire (basically grab a few strands at a time, fold away from the end) until it is small enough to get into ends. You will still have plenty of wire to carry 30a current. But, I used the camco connectors and it was a miserable time even with 30a cable stuffing everything in there. Heaven forbid they make everything just a touch bigger.

RE: Awning Sun Protection

I had a fair amount of aging Eternabond 4" wide tape that needed to be used up. I ran two strips across the awning's top section that's always exposed. It's been two or three years now and it's held up better than I could have dreamed. My awning was beginning to fall apart up there, but appears to be holding its own now. I expected the rolling, unrolling and flexing to make short work of the tape. I'm pleasantly surprised. That's supposed to be be one of the good things about EB, flexibility and ability to reseal itself. Darn good idea to put it up there, as it will easily outlast the awning material.

RE: How bad is this? (urgent) Roof

1. Wash roof as discussed above. 2. The spray is a great cleaner. I use acetone because of less cost involved. 3. Plan/map out how you want to lay it down. In my case, I trimmed and removed excess dicor so I could get a complete adhesion on both sides of the joint. I used 4" wide tape, and lapped over joint all the way into the gutter. You either had a bad batch of tape, or improper/incomplete surface prep, or just didn't lay it down/adhere it properly (requires a roller to make sure it is adhered). Assuming all tape laid down at same time, and that's the only place where it's peeling, I'm going to go with improper surface prep or not adhering it properly after applied. Stuff is crazy sticky when adhered properly. I also tried to avoid having short pieces when covering side seams. I ran one piece the entire length from front to back, and one piece side to side on each end. I would remove the peeling tape to the point where it is adhered good, and replace. Look for soft spots in roof, or soft spots inside, moldy smells, water staining in corners, at floor or at ceiling. Hope this helps.

RE: How bad is this? (urgent) Roof

You don't want to eternabond the whole roof. Way to expensive. Those pics are proof that some people should stay away from eternabond. It was either a bad batch, or terrible surface prep. Looking at how sloppy it was applied, I lean toward terrible surface prep. Pic two, is that a hole in the rubber, or is it a drip of dicor or? A short piece of eternabond over that and it will be fine. Remove as much of the loose EB and reseal with dicor or more EB. Or, if that is white peeling off the black rubber of the roof, you may as well plan on having a new roof installed.

RE: Outdoor Shower Door Flew Off

I'd get the door only, rest of the stuff in there is pretty durable unless you let it freeze.
