RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

I have a 31bhpr, and it really squats the rear end of my 2005 Excursion. It drops the ball 3 3/4" inches when the trailer is attached (without my equalizer brand distribution hitch attached). Even with the distribution hitch attached I have quite the squat in the rear. Just yesterday I swapped out the stock Excursion springs for those that were on a F350 (c-code, 3000lb each). I STILL get a 3 3/4" drop when I attach the trailer. Now the F350 springs gave me an 2 1/4" increase to start, but it still drops a lot. I haven't hooked it up with the equalizer hitch yet so I am hopeful that some change will have come from the spring swap. Is anyone else seeing this with their trailer? I don't even have the water tank 1/2 full right now. Thanks for any info. That sounds completely normal to me, I would think it would come back up a couple inches after you attach WD bars. I don't think you needed to swap the springs, I would have seen what it looks like after you get the WD all set up and dialed in first.

Wow. What did they do to fix it?

Bike rack on bumper failure

After reading so many posts arguing about the bike racks on the bumpers of TTs, I finally saw a failure today on the side of the road. They had a rack with two bikes on it, the bumper had torn around where it was welded to the frame, the bottom part was still barely attached. I don't know how far they drug the bikes before they realized it. I just saw it as I drove by, it was in the middle of town and looked like they had everything under control...

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

I thought I had read that someone did this fix but I couldn't find the post. I guess I need a big square piece of metal to attach the bracket to. I also read that someone tried to use 60lb supports but they wouldn't hold the door up so I guess it has to be 80lbs.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

Anyone else have problems with your outdoor kitchen door struts? My rivets pulled out of my rear one a couple years ago, easy enough to fix. Recently on the rear strut the bracket pulled out of the actual door. I reattached it beside where it was originally it pulled right out when I tried to close it. I'm camping now and thought I'd try to fix it, I had a piece of 12" aluminum about 1" wide so I screwed it into the door and attached the bracket to that, seemed really sturdy until I tried to close the door it just twisted the aluminum... The struts are 80lb each which seems like too much to me but has any one else done this fix before?

RE: Florida RV Park/State Park on the Ocean

St Joe Peninsula SP would be my pick for a beach camping experience. I don't think many if any sewer hook ups are there though. I just moved to FL near Panama City, I was expecting to have many choices of campgrounds next to the beach around here, but actually there are very few...

RE: Disney World Fort Wilderness

What week are you going? We will be there from 6-14 June. I have reservations but am still trying to decide what loop to request and stuff.

RE: For those with outdoor kitchens....

I've never had a problem with my outdoor fridge keeping stuff cold, it gets warm in that area on hot days but I've never thought it was too hot or anything. Maybe we have different fridges but mine seems to not put out as much heat as I thought it would. It doesn't have the exposed coils on the back like most fridges have. I've camped in over 100 degree weather a lot.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

Nice! Was the glass you ordered cut to fit? I didn't even think to just replace the glass in the existing frame.

RE: Branson Mo campgrounds

Like others have said, the State Park is great, I've stayed at the Branson KOA a couple times and like it. The KOA is kind of in the middle between the Strip and Table Rock Lake.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

I like that window! I've always hated the glass in the ones on there now, I would love ot be able to see out of it and the fact that it opens is even better! I don't like the price though:-(

RE: Frameless windows

I have the frameless on my 2010, I have had no problems with them chipping or anything like that. For some reason my Dinette window leaked during a very long driving rain a few months ago, I ran a bead of silicon across the top and it has never happened again, so I did that to the rest of my windows.

Bunk House storage

We moved to FL from KS and stayed in the TT for a little over a month while we waited to move into a house, of course my wife needed drawers and storage for all of her and our 2 boy's clothes and stuff. I found that these bins fit perfectly under the lower bunk when I removed the Trundle bed and the other bins fit perfectly when I removed the mattress from the over-the-entertainment center bunk. http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af329/wayloncle/null-6.jpg width=600 http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af329/wayloncle/null-4.jpg width=600

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

I didn't have mine replaced, it was out of warranty, I got it realigned and has been good so far. I don't think mine bent after I purchased it though, I think it wasn't aligned from the start. I think I paid $175 for the alignment.

RE: Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

I close the blinds, plug the vents and shut it up tight and never had a problem. Moving to NW Florida will afford you the best beach camping in the country IMO. Are there places to camp right on the beach, or edge of it, that you know of around the Panama City area? I haven't done a whole lot of research on it, been busy finding a house and what-not, but haven't seen anywhere that is right on the beach. I've never been a big beach person, I grew up in Arkansas and have been in the midwest most of my military career....but I have enjoyed it here so far!

RE: Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

I am not in FL but almost (~65 miles) and so have the same sun and humidity issues. I leave my vents open and use damp rid in my TT. Keep a bucket sitting in the bathroom on the counter. I use the ones that are about 3-4 cup size container and just replace when it gets full. I use the fragrance free or the charcoal one depending on my mood when I pick them up. If you have to store in base storage, you can use these without having power. Since I can buy these for $2 each, I figure I can buy a whole lot of them (years worth) before I can buy a mechanical dehumidifer and don't have to worry about electricity either. PS, I wish I was at Tyndall FAMCAMP right now... my kids grew up going to the beach there. spent many a night relaxing there. It's a nice camp. I'm surprised the base beach isn't more busy! I guess people don't like the long boardwalk out to it? It will be in base storage so no power, we will be living on base so it will be close anyway.

RE: Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

I got a roll of the bubble wrap with foil on the sides, I don't know the name of it but that's what it looks like, I cut pieces out that fit in the windows and use that. for about a week before we left KS we stayed in the McConnell AFB FamCamp, which is nice since they built the new one, but there is no shade at all. Those pieces helped a lot, I even cut some that fit in the vent holes. On the doors I put little velcro tapes on the corners of the window and covered those. The Tyndall AFB FamCamp is very shaded so I haven't needed to use all my window blockers since we have been here.

RE: Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

Thanks! That's kind of what I was expecting but just wanted to make sure. Yes, I do have MaxAir covers on them. We've been here, Panama City area, for about 3 weeks now and have enjoyed it so far! I don't see that changing anytime soon.
