RE: Glow Step Revolution by Torklift: Pros & Cons for Trailers

Nice write up!

RE: Question about TT suspension

Surprised you aren't dragging the tail at some point. I don't like that scenario at all.

RE: Looking at 1997 HR Alumalite 35WCS, need advice

I would be concerned about the tires. Very concerned about them. That's a lot of miles to travel for 8yo tires that have been sitting their whole life. If you decide to try the tires, you need to inspect them for dry rotting/bulges, etc. If you can, jack it up and spin each wheel independently watching for buldges in in the tread that would indicate tread separation. Also, while jacked up, grab each wheel and try to twist side to side - this will show whether there are any bearing issues. Bearings could be a big issue as well, because sitting is very hard on them. Might be a good idea to take a temp gun and check bearings every fifty miles or so to make sure they aren't going out on you (should you buy of course).

RE: Need advice on an RV GPS?

Just recently purchased a Garmin RV 760. Prior to that, had been using a 2006 Garmin (car model) with non updated maps. Have been playing with the 760 and so far it has been great. Have not, however, been on any long trips with it yet. The voice command feature is pretty darn cool. I usually program the route in and hit the road. My wife will have her phone programmed as well and will supplement the GPS should we need it. Have not experimented with auto vs rv mode yet but will. I LOVE the big screen. If you watch ebay, you will find a factory refurbished model with a full warranty. That's what I did. $279 give or take, IIRC.

RE: Leveling jacks

If I were using a drill to put them down, first time around I'd set the tension by hand. Then, adjust the clutch on the drill so it wouldn't turn them any more. Then, you should have pretty close to the right tension when you put them down with the drill.

RE: Leveling jacks

Hmm, guess I need to check out our Rigid outlet store for that model. I'd love to have one with all three modes in it.

RE: Leveling jacks

x2 - get a drill, not an impact. No reason for an impact. Unless, of course, you were to need it to change a flat tire on the road. Then an impact would be a great idea.

RE: Tire Build Date: How Old is Too Old?

Pass on the tires. And run your current ones to 5 years. FYI, when you pull your old tires off, you can likely sell them on craigslist if you put a decent price on them. Lots of people look for trailer tires on the cheap, and don't really care if they are a bit old.

RE: Is my furnace working correctly?

x2 - after a few minutes of running, warm air should be coming out. At the very least, you should have some type of airflow. If not, a dealer trip may indeed be warranted...

RE: Washer/dryer remodel into TT

Any reason one could not mount a washer in a pickup bed with a cover. Have often thought the same thing. And the camper wouldn't be shaking when the washer is running.

RE: In the snow- tanks below freezing

Assuming the temp below freezing is a single day dip, then no problem. Leave your heat on and all will be good. If you are looking at a week long event, where daytime temps aren't going to be above freezing, then you need to make preparations. We have camped in overnight dips into the teens with daytime highs in high 30's low 40's for an entire weekend with no issues. You do, however, need to disconnect your water hose and run some water in your fresh water tank.

RE: Washer/dryer remodel into TT

Is there physically a spot where you can actually install one? If so, then it's certainly doable. If your TT isn't 50a, I would simply add a circuit that you could plug into the pedestal and then plug the w/d into that. Plenty of thread on people that have done that. Some simply run a short drop cord from the pedestal through a slide. You could even drill a hole and install a hatch like a lot of campers have where their shore cable is stored inside. Then you will need to run a grey water drain line, and hot and cold water for the hookups. I guess technically you don't have to do both hot and cold. We wash most all of our clothes in cold so we could forego that if needed. Would probably be best to locate the w/d centrally, as they are pretty heavy. 100# or so maybe? I WOULD NOT go with a ventless model. It is a very simple operation to drill a hole and install an rv dryer vent. If you don't, then the area is going to get pretty darn warm, plus lots of humidity sent into the TT. Running the water and drain lines is the hardest part, IMO. Especially if you have an enclosed underbelly. And finally, I think most people, when running then, typically leave the grey water valve open so you don't overflow the grey water tank.

RE: 2014 Jayco 338RETS Eagle Premeir

Here's why I suggested a dually - If you ever decide to upgrade to a fiver, then you have the truck you need Golf cart in back of dually plus TT hooked up? No problem More traction in back with the dual wheels More truck than you likely need, but you'll have it if you need it. And the cost of a dually over a srw in same wheelbase is 1000ish dollars.

RE: Is This OK ?

Would love a set of torklift steps as well. My TT is pretty high off the ground compared to most TT and I have heavy stair shake any time someone comes in/out of the TT. Really look like they would be the ticket.

RE: What's the math of spring bars sizes?

Using your guesses on weight, it does appear that 1200 would be the best option. However, 1000# would work as well. The difference in ride between the two will be noticeable. The 1200 bars will tend give a stiffer ride when hitting bumps, while the 1000 bars will flex more and cushion more.

RE: 2014 Jayco 338RETS Eagle Premeir

A freightliner will be about right assuming you can get the hitch set correctly. :-D Honestly, since I assume you don't have the truck yet, I'd go dually of your favorite brand. Lot of trailer, over 10k gross, and a lot of tongue weight. You will also need a GOOD sway control hitch.

RE: F150 trailer brake setting

FYI, if you have them set to tight, you will notice weird hopping/tugging and make you think you have a rotor warped. It is the trailer brakes yanking the tongue down. Then goes back up when let off brake lightly, etc etc. It's a vicious cycle.

RE: Roof screw holes repaired by Dicor???

Eternabond tape over it and forget about it. And use the holes as a bargaining chip. Might be able to shave couple hundred off the price...
