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 ?

RE: kitchen faucet

I remodeled the kitchen in our house and had a almost new faucet that needed to be change as per my wife for the remodel so I took it out, put in the new faucet in the house and used this one in our 5th wheel, worked fine and superior to the original one that was in there.

RE: Slow front stabilizer repair question.

check the amp draw and look for loose or poor connections frayed wires. I need to check for grease fitting on mine, no problems yet but don't need them in the future

RE: Slow front stabilizer repair question.

I have not checked mine BUT do hear that some legs have grease zerks on the top of the legs and some tap the cap off the top and add I hear oil and grease. just a thought.

RE: Electric Brakes question

They make crimp connectors with sealer in them. Or solder and use heat shrink that has sealer in it. No wire nuts!!!!! OEM sometimes uses crimp connects where both wires go in the same end. Should be ones that have sealer in them. My first choice on our baja bugs is bare wire crimps with a quality crimper and my second choice is to make a solder join and in each case I use dual wall adhesive shrink tube works so far for me.

RE: Superglide Capture Plate

What I did was to mount the plate with all the screw because that is what it said, BUT later I welded 5/16 square steel around the capture plate with a small space for a gap. then removed all the screws in the plate and put only one larger screw in the space where the plate drops down and now only have to remove one screw to drop the plate. On my 5th wheel flat bed I bought one of their wedges cheaper then a plate no plate now and mounted that to the pin plate on the trailer, works great and has two large bolt to remove to be towed by regular hitch.

RE: Superglide Capture Plate

drill them and get the plate off and grind surface smooth.
