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: 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.

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

my boy had a 2013 f150 ecoboost with the four doors big ones short bed 3.55 gears, we put a superglide auto slider hitch and air bags in rear, and he pulled a 7900 lbs mt 5th wheel trailer with all the gear generator and fuel and what ever and it pulled like crazy. He flew by my dodge ram diesel 1999 like I was sitting still up the Sherwood grade to the sierras. the weak link seemed to be the brakes up front, got hot, and the mileage was half of my dodge.

RE: How to tap into propane on RV?

I was able to tap into the heater at a tee on the frame in front of the entrance door and then make a small hole in the plastic and a quick disconnect sticks out about 2" has worked perfect for several years.

RE: wheel grease seals

my understanding of the Bearing Buddies is when you have a boat trailer taken to the lake the bearing are warm/hot you hit the water with the trailer cools fast and will draw in water if not under pressure no need for RV

RE: Learned a couple of things today!! and it continued...Page 2

I do know that on the 2nd gen Dodges that have CAD I think is called center activated disconnect you can either do it with the vacuum or better with a mechanical cable that will disconnect the CAD and will let you put it in 4wd and not activate the front diff. I have purchased the stuff to build it but time has not allowed for me to do it. can purchase it. Not sure how the newer Dodges work.

RE: gas station canopies height ?

I got off the highway in Needles last month on the start of our vacation, got gas with no issue then use the phone gps to get back on the I40 next thing I see is a sign low bridge 8 FEET clearance, at least with the 5er I was able to make a u turn right before the entrance, as we did I see one motorhome after another taking the same path. That sure made me pay attention to bridges the rest of the vacation.

RE: gas station canopies height ?

went to one on route 66 out of OK it was labeled 13 ft. I guess my trailer is a bit under 13 ft. there was a small gap
