RE: Rubber roof reseal ????

I have done Two with Bus Kote. Works great! do you put the flex clear on top of the Bus Kote for UV protection??

RE: Rubber roof reseal ????

I could use a similar reseal, I do see that where the roof material rolls over the edge at that seam looks to need some attention, no sure how to attack it with self leveling sealer or eternabond? I used 2" Eternabond along the area where the roof meets the side walls. 1/4" overlapped the rain gutter, the rest was on the roof. It didn't interfere with the rain gutter. I bought two 50' rolls of Eternabond so I could put a solid 30' piece along each side. Before applying the Eternabond tape I filled the small gap between the rain gutter and the roof with Dicor caulk. It made an even surface for the tape. sounds like the plan I want to follow thanks ED

RE: Motorcycle on the back of the 5er.

Very do able and many like your friend have done it. I think the key is to get recommendations from your dealer as to what welding shops they deal with for doing this type of mod. You are looking for a welding shop who is proficient in this type of fabrication on the 5th wheel you have, and have a reputation for the work to be preformed. These are the people who's opinions are on the line and reputation at stake. I would not trust anyone who has little of no actual experience in this mod. This is critical. Next, I might want to go with a lighter bike, there are many out there under the 300 lbs weight class, that can perform most of what a rider wants. A rear view camera is something I would consider a must, for the obvious reasons. Good luck and I hope you can find a solution you can go with. I built a hitch for my 5er and have carried a dirt bike an old 490 yamaha on my pull trailer. and I have to agree that I would keep it close to the 300 lbs. mark unless it has a swivel wheel trailer attached to the rear. Not an engineer but have built many things and vehicles and buggies that have held up to the terrain.

RE: Motorcycle on the back of the 5er.

I have channel that is bolted to the frame and extends through the fiberglass of the rear of the 5er and then got a stock pu hitch and extended its square tube welded to the channel iron. I would not hesitate to put a dirt bike on the back, did it on an older pull trailer with no issues. I presently have a rack for my 3000 watt yamaha generator and some other small items. Your choice. I carried that set up 4000 miles last year.

RE: turning radius with short bed supeduty and tool box

:S So unless your 5er clears the bed rails by 10" or better you are looking for trouble! The B&W is a great hitch, but it is a manual slider! So if you pull into a parking lot and make a semi sharp turn, you could be looking at a damaged 5er and Tool box. Just get a tool box like this and problem solved. http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z467/rhagfo/5EB62273-3B3E-4042-B982-B06432E4824C_zpsxhisiceo.jpg width=640 that is what I have with my slider and do not have to be thinking about it, that is peace of mind.

RE: Getting Axles Flipped - any potential problems??

I have done it to three trailers now all work fine, last year took a 4000 mile trip in our raised/flipped axle trailer no problem, I have more problems if I do not have the bed to 5er clearance because of the roads on our property and come very close to touching bed to trailer. I had an old pull out step from a pull trailer and welded some metal to it and it just attaches to the last stem and gives me one more step when I need it, slips over and snaps down and is on. came so close to being able to fit in place while traveling but protrudes a little too much. YOU ARE GOING TO BE FINE. and less problems catching things under trailer and easier to dump in some places, all is good

RE: Slider hitch vs Anderson rail mount question.

Anderson doesn't move BUT center of the load is still under the axle. the slider moves the weight to the back of the bed

RE: Needing to transport golf cart

I think you need a trailer type platform that attaches to the rear hitch that either has one or two wheels that swivel in the rear of the platform. can even back it up. I do not think this is considered double towing. not cheap but will do what you need. http://www.toy-tote.com/toy-tote

RE: JT Strongarm installation - easy, but customer service?....

I had just the opposite experience, I bought a set of JT strongarms used at the swapmeet. no instruction, I believe I found them on the internet and had some questions because I had a screw on foot on one leg for leveling that I did not want to get rid of, the girl I spoke with was very helpful and clear. install then was very simple. I only did the front arms and still have the ones for the rear that I may do in the future.

RE: laying vinyl plank flooring

There are 2 types of vinyl planks. The stuff that sticks to itself and the interlocking type. the interlocking type will withstand temp extremes better without separating like the stick together type. I used the smap together

RE: laying vinyl plank flooring

I tore out my little patch of vinyl and the rug and put in plank style vinyl. I made the mistake of doing it on 100 degree day bad for 2 reasons. It kicked my but the heat and when it gets cold and shrinks I can see a small gap in some tiles, others don't see it thought. nice stuff easy to maintain.

RE: Tire advice needed,long trip planned

my advice is to get one of the brands of tire/pressure/temperature monitors. I have tst can't beat the service if needed but others may be just as good or better. Will save you maybe a tire or at least the damage that can be done by a shredded tire.

RE: zeb vs UV

mine never yellowed but the side facing the sun has signs of going bad after one year. So I did the whole 5er in 303 Aerospace Protectant and hope that will help to give it some UV protection. Will keep an eye on it.
Ed9824v 06/24/16 10:16pm Tech Issues
RE: zeb vs UV

my Zep only lasted about 3 yrs. then I redid it, wonder if 303 Aerospace Protectant would work and be uv protection

RE: Which install first: 5th-wheel hitch or air bags?

when we installed the superglide hitch on my boys truck the hitch bracket interfered with the airlift bag install. we were able to modify the bag brackets to to work but there can be an interference problem in some cases. on my truck superglide said that the bags would not fit with the hitch installed and there was no interference. I WOULD HAVE THE DEALER DO BOTH AND TELL YOU THERE WILL BE NOT PROBLEM IN WRITING.

RE: Trailer Casters?

1st off are the leaf spring on top of the axles, if not that will raise the trailer. what about air bags for the rear axle and air them up for just this purpose and leave them at 5lbs at all there time just a thought. All we need to do is get the rear up temporarily for this maneuver.
