RE: Holiday weekend camping

For really popular parks in prime tourist season, many people book as soon as reservations open, some a year in advance, to make sure they get what they want. Even if they have to pay a cancellation fee later, they know they have a site waiting. To guarantee a site at a park you want in popular areas, especially during prime season, you better book months in advance. Supply and demand. And demand is high.

RE: Slide-Outs @ Walmart

Depends a lot on the Walmart also. Some have large areas around the outer fringes of the parking lots where slides would not interfere with anything. Others don't have as large parking lots or at least remote areas in their parking lots.

RE: Dill TPMS Problem

If it were me, I would tell them to pull the Dill system out and put the TST system on. No reason it should take more than a few minutes to "learn" the system. My TST system begins to display the pressures and temps within a few minutes of turning it on. Even on the initial installation, it took only a short time to program the system and start displaying the pressures and temps.

RE: Looking at a 30 amp 5er

We have a 35' 50 amp trailer, but have at times stayed in parks with only 30 amp service. You can manage in hot weather with only 30 amps if you manage your power carefully. When running the A/C you have to be careful of how many other high current devices you use at the same time. Water heater on electric, microwave and/or convection oven, electric skillet, hair dryer, etc. Too many at one time will trip the breaker. No harm done. Just reset the breaker and make a mental note of what you were doing when it tripped.

RE: Carrier AC blowing breaker

Could simply be a breaker getting weak. My rear 15K A/C tripped the breaker several times on a trip a few years ago, like yours after running a few minutes. Replaced the breaker (same amperage) and never tripped again. A simple and inexpensive something to try.

RE: How to connect this wiring?

Here is an easy to follow 4 pin trailer wiring diagram. A new harness and this diagram would make for a much better final product.

RE: Greasing EZ Lube TT axles

...Adding grease to the zerk only supplies grease to the front (or outer) bearing if you pump enough grease in to push the grease thru the inner bearing, thru the hub cavity, and out thru the outer bearing... I think you're thinking about those cheap end caps you buy from Harbor Freight. This is how they work: Clicky Apparently you are not familiar with the Dexter EZ Lube axles and how they work. They have a zerk at the outer end that ports grease to the inner bearing, thru the hub, to the outer bearing. If you watched the video you posted the link to you would see what I mean. Read what you wrote. You started with the outer bearing first gets greased then pushes to the inner. The very opposite of what happens. You're changing your song now that you watched the video. You need to reread what I wrote. I said grease ONLY gets to the outer bearing if you use enough grease to push it thru the inner bearing, thru the hub, and out the outer bearing. You even highlighted it in red!

RE: OEM tires-Toy Haulers

I am "only" 35' and about 12,500#. Replaced my Chinese Mission tires after the first year. Now 20,000 miles later the Michelin XPS Ribs hardly show any wear. Gonna age out long before they wear out.

RE: Cut wire in travel trailer I have a question

I would also at least use a good tight wire nut. Electrical tape can age out over time and loosen up. Wire nuts are used elsewhere in RV wiring.

RE: Camper satisfaction

Starting our 9th year on trailer bought new in 2007. Could not be happier with it. No signficant problems at all. Any problems I have had have been minor and corrected by me.

RE: Slide-out Toppers

People seem to love them or hate them. Major complaints are flapping noise in high winds and rain water collecting on top of them, primarily longer ones for the water issue.

RE: Storage yard damage

Take a picture of your damaged RV inside the storage area. Tell the Storage owner and the company you think is responsible for the damage. Tell them both that you are going to run an ad in the local news paper warning people in the community to avoid dealing with them, buying their product etc etc. That could get you in legal trouble. Signing a rental contract that clearly states the storage facility is not responsible for damages and then publicly complaining because of a damage is irresponsible. You sign the agreement, you accept the risks, and you move on. Otherwise, take it somewhere that does accept responsibility, if such a place exists.

RE: 12V Inline System Fuse

Typically the first line of protection is installed within a very short distance from the battery to protect in the case of a short in the line and overheating the wire. Don't know why they would have installed another in series with the first.

RE: Greasing EZ Lube TT axles

....... 4. From the diagram it would appear that adding grease to the front zerk will adequately supply grease to both front and rear bearings. In many cases, too much grease can cause excessive heat buildup. However I cannot say that you're wrong because I've only had my toyhauler 5 years and haven't had the wheels apart to check............ Adding grease to the zerk only supplies grease to the front (or outer) bearing if you pump enough grease in to push the grease thru the inner bearing, thru the hub cavity, and out thru the outer bearing. And it does take a LOT of grease to do that as it must fill the inner cavity before it reaches the outer bearing.

RE: Greasing EZ Lube TT axles

OP here. Seems to be differences of opinion which it to be expected. I watched a video on applying new grease through the zerk on the EZ lube to push out the old grease. I think I may do this. My question is what grease and as important I would like to use a color of grease that more than likely was not used by Dexter when they packed the bearings so I can definitely tell when the old is fully out. Also, how many of the tubes will this take? I use Mystik JT-6 Hi Temp grease. One of the greases recommended by Dexter. It is dark red in color and you can tell when it has pushed the old grey colored grease out and the red starts coming out.

RE: Mirror and light on nosecap over hitch?

I suppose the mirror usefullness would have to do with how well the driver can see the hitch from the driver's seat. In my case, I can easily see my hitch thru the back window and have never used the mirror. For a shorter person or something in the bed partially blocking the view and not being able to see the hitch well it might come in handy.
