RE: Unhook for quick overnight stop

I think some of the newer vehicles disconnect the power to the trailer with the truck off. otherwise it is a good idea to disconnect the cord.

RE: mice

Do you bait the traps? I've heard some folks just put traps around the tires and landing gear. I ask about baiting because that can attract them inside. If so, what bait? Peanut butter works in the house but turns rancid in a week or so. I use Fresh Cab and usually only see mice sign where I forget the Fresh Cab like the battery compartment. I have been using peanut butter are you saying fresh cabbage not sure what cab is?

RE: mice

I got them contained to one lower cabinet but can't find a way to no getting them in there. I had the water tank out and sealed all opening. I now get one every couple of weeks in the trap.

RE: 5th wheel with a gooseneck conversion in a short bed Dodge

Hello all. First, It's veterans day and I wan't to say Thank You to all Veterans who may read this. My freedom is not free and I thank you for serving our country so I can live as I do. Here is my dilemma. I've got a 27 ft 5th wheel that I've pulled behind a a half ton short bed for a couple years with no problem. I recently just bought a 2009 3/4 ton Ram with the 6.7 cummins and a short bed that has a flip over Gooseneck hitch in the bed of it. I really like the flip over idea as it keeps the bed free for hauling other stuff. I really do not want to have to put a 5th wheel hitch in the back of it if I don't have to. I've seen other people use the bolt on conversions to the 5th wheel so it can be hooked up to the gooseneck hitch; is that a good way to tow and would I have room for turning so the it doesn't hit the cab? Any and all replies will be greatly appreciated. Anderson Hitch, is what my boy is using, it uses the ball in the bed to atacha a pyramid frame that connects to the 5er trailer hitch the whole thing ways about 5o lbs. rated for I believe 30k lbs. check it out.

RE: Pullrite Super Glide? or Reese manual?

sure seems worth it when you forget to manually set the hitch back on a quick u turn and have to get a new side for your cab.

RE: 'Correct installation of JT Strongarm Stabilizers

I installed them as close to the bottom as possible, on one side I have it a bit higher because I have one leg with a screw adj. foot. and it doesn't allow me to go to the very bottom. I did call strongarm because I bought my set used at the swapmeet and didn't have all the details and they were very helpful. and after you are set up and level you tighten the SA and then lift the legs till you take the slack out of the SA. and you are good to go.

RE: small crack in bathtub

I did mine with epoxy resin and I scratched the surface and put a thin layer on and let it set, then added another wet coat and laid down fiberglass material and soaked in on with more resin. when done I put styrofoam to fill all the space, and put all pack together, never leaked again. BY the way I did this from the bottom side

RE: Pullrite Superglide vs. a different Double pivot hitch?

Hmm, my Superglide pivots only front to back, not side to side. However, Pullrites website says that all Superglides are dual pivot. Mine is only 2 years old. What am I missing? Is there a heavy spring that keeps it level side to side and I'm just not noticing its ability to pivot? I thought mine was a single pivot but if I try hard enough it pivots side to side, us loosening up after some use

RE: R beer roof repair

ok what do you do if there is a piece of the roof missing, my boys trailer was phony fixed with duct tape and coated with a roof sealer and on his last trip is all bubbled up and a big portion of the rubber roofing is missing what do you think is the best fix. I think he should get a piece of rubber roofing and glue it down and seal with eternabond on all sealing pieces and roll with roofing sealer. what you think

RE: Help...Reese Sidewinder / Revolution or Pullrite Superglide

I went with the SG the Side Winder did not have a unit to fit my pin box. gave them a call and that was the answer. I think I would have prefered it if it was available. but no problems with the SG for several years now.

RE: Help...Reese Sidewinder / Revolution or Pullrite Superglide

I went from a manual slider to a Superglide early last year. Have not had a problem hitching, I get it lined up and have the pinbox a little lower that the hitch so it pushes the bed down slightly. On releasing, I've had a few times I haven't been able to pull the release handle until I got back in the cab and backed up enough to take the pressure of the connection. I haven't had the sidewinder to comment on it. this is the same situation I have had with the SG just got back from a 5 week vacation and hitch and unhitched many time with ease. only 5th I have had. do not think about sharp turns or u turn or backing up. I did readjust the big bolt in the back to take out any looseness from wear and the hitch never swings around when disconnected. I would recommend to others.

RE: ball stuck in coupler

my boy has the anderson and it slips right,BUT we needed a pliers to get the pin out to slip off the square collar, put the pin in the lathe and took off a few thousands and work free by hand. he has the system hooked to his toy hauler and travel trailer and both work great.

RE: Dropped 5er with Pullrite SuperGlide?

I have the pullrite and do the pull test after hook tires blocked and legs just off the ground and do a visual check of the pin latch before the pull test.

RE: Fan in Refrigerator question...

If no fan were such a good idea then you wouldn't have them in residential fridg's, and they wouldn't be installed in the new Dometic's. Because they are designed to work properly WITH a fan. Those without them are not. Some will work with a fan and, as pointed out here, some will not. The fan is not "necessary" in either case. I am a fan man, BUT in residential refrigerator the entire cooling system is in the freezer and then a set about of air is blown down with FAN to the refrigerator portion.

RE: Jack Stabilizers

RE: How to remove ZEP Floor Sealer

I did mine about 2.5 years ago and sits in the hot desert sun, and it finally peeled. I removed it recently with ZEP Wax remover and redid it looks great. this is an older trailer that looks great when done. If it is newer and just a bit tired I might just wax and polish.

RE: towing a5th wheel with f150 eco 6.5 ft box /3.55

yes that is true I am towing at least 2500 more lbs. with the Dodge. But the truck was pretty good for what it was. by the way my boy got a big toyhauler 3 axle and is now towing with a dually 4x4 long bed Ford F450. diesel 9 mpg never better. and the other thing about my dodge and his F150 when mine is just broken it he will probably ready to get a rebuild on the motor. Just came back from a 4000 mile trip or more with the dodge and it performed flawlessly.
