RE: tire Blowout Repair

Odds are that’s how those parts get to the dealers some times also. Good luck with your repair job.

RE: LI Southbound 95 or 81?

Just leave at night or very early morning and take the shortest route.

RE: Storing a pop up question

Keep it closed and make sure there are no opening that mice or other critters can use to enter it.

RE: EZ Lube axles/hubs

I bought my TT in 2017 and it has the EZ lube hubs, but.. When I bought it the RV mechanic that gave us the walk around was emphatic that we shouldn't mess with those hubs for a few years. He discouraged even squirting grease in them. what's the point of EZ lube axles if you don't need to squirt some grease in there every once in a while? How can grease in a hub/bearing blow out a seal unless it's under pressure? the mechanic is correct. ez lube axles are for adding a half a squirt of grease every couple of years, so that you dont need to disassemble and repack... and yes, those who dont know any better can, and often DO, fill the cavity with grease to the point where the grease only has 2 ways to go.... either out the front, or out the back, and a grease gun can generate thousands of PSI with very little effort, and it doesnt take but a few PSI to push the seal out with too much grease. no matter is one understands the concept or not, they can save themselves some troubles by forgetting those grease fittings for awhile....ansd if the bearings are packed and tightened correctly and the seals are good, they will go many, many thousands of miles without any problems at all bearing buddy caps will do the exact same thing to the seal if they get too much grease pumped into them... That info is totally incorrect. Bearing buddies are for adding a little bit of grease to keep water out. Ezlube IS for greasing bearings. There is a hole built into the system to allow old grease to come out as the new grease goes in. For correct info go to their web site and read about the system and not the sometimes false and incorrect info here. I have used it for years without any problems. But don’t take my word read their site.

RE: Maine to Florida

I do the same thing. I’m in Western Mass and will leave around 7pm and take 95. NY and the GW are not a problem at that time and it is quicker.

RE: Cape Cod

If you like lobster rolls the Raw Bar in New Seabury is good and enough for two meals.

RE: Weekend travel MA to FL

We always leave Friday night around 7 when heading south. We take 91 to 95 and then use the beltways around Balt and DC and stay on 95 through Richmond. We have never had a problem going that way and coming home we hit those cities at around the same time by adjusting the time we leave. I would never ever go any other route that would add time to avoid a problem that seems not to be there at that time. During week might be a different story but I have done it then.

RE: Need to go springfield ma to Allentown pa.

Thanks everyone. I made the trip today and it worked out fine. One thing it confirmed for me was at that time of the morning I would rather stay with 91 to 95 than deal with 84.

RE: Need to go springfield ma to Allentown pa.

Thanks for those routes but I am looking the quickest way there and back. I’m not towing anything . I should have been clearer.

Need to go springfield ma to Allentown pa.

Google maps avoids 684 but it looks like it would be quicker if I took it. I was thinking of 91 to 84 to 684 to 287 to 78. Any other ideas. I will be leaving around 1 am if that makes a difference. Thanks Brian

RE: DIY portable battery cart ideas wanted.

Why keep it on a charger at all. With no load a fully charged battery will stay charged for a couple months. So just top it off once in a while and it will be fine.

RE: Leave TT plugged in or remove battery?

No need for wood under the battery. That need died decades ago.

RE: Leave TT plugged in or remove battery?

I remove my battery, put it in my cellar and put in on the charger every couple of months. Why run a charger all winter? Seems to meleaving it on the trailer and plugged in would be a waste of energy and a risk to the trailer.

RE: RV covers - Questions for those that use them

I only have to move the ladder three times not a big deal. Also not all trailers have walkable roofs so this works great for them.

RE: RV covers - Questions for those that use them

Simple, lay the cover on the ground, fold the sides onto the roof portion of the cover, roll the cover front to back, fold in half. Climb the ladder and lay the cover on the roof, unfold it, roll the cover along the roof, moving the ladder as you go, toss the straps and sides off the roof. Get off the ladder and secure the straps and call it a day. Once you cover the sharp places of the trailer it takes about fifteen minutes to put the cover on. Taking the cover I just get on a ladder and pull it off working from the ac, and antenna side that way I can work it over them. Once off I just roll the cover up and I’m done.
