RE: 4:10 or 3:73 ?

I think I would go to the 4:10 I did, if for some reason that seems a bit steep you can always go with a slightly taller tire. I do not pull that much weight but put on 4:10 with my 35 in tires and it is working good for me. just thought

RE: Kayak carrier under fifth wheel frame

I do not have a kayak but a porta bote and I fold it up and put it under the rear of the 5th wheel. been there for some 5 years. ready to use. BUT it is only 4.5 in +- thick. can't see why your idea will not work with that clearance.

RE: Can you hitch an autoslide hitch in an angled position?

I don't think I will have a straight shot in my driveway is why I ask I think they have a 10 or 11 degree freedom from straight, easy to check with the pullrite site or call them they are very helpful rechecked the website it shows 16 degrees. http://www.pullrite.com/sites/default/files/4100-4400%20SG%20Owners%20Manual_1.pdf

RE: Can you hitch an autoslide hitch in an angled position?

My experience with my SuperGlide if I needed to hitch at an angle, I separate the hitch head from the base and attach it to my kingpin. I would then back under the head and align the base and lower the head onto the base, re-attach the head to the base and I'm good to go. Not the easiest, but it worked. I've since moved to a long bed and Andersen hitch. I have the pullrite and I will have to try this in the front yard before I need to do it. the other manual sliders maybe able to come in at any angle.

RE: Need advice choosing a hitch

I would look into the anderson hitch. 30 pounds and so easy to take off the gooseneck ball

RE: Any electrical experts out there?

Assuming the vacuum has a ground plug... can you use a two prong extension to unground the vacuum? I am thinking the motor induces a ground current in the RV when operating. Then try plugging the RV into the inverter with a two prong plug. Have you tried another vacuum? 2000w inverter should power anything that plugs into a regular outlet. Do you have the fridge and water heat set to propane only? good question on the water heater on electric, that thing can be 1000 to 15oo watts alone. I has issues at one campsite tripping there breaker and turns out the electric water heat was just too much for this maybe weak breaker

RE: Any electrical experts out there?

Newman, I thought of that (too many watts). But, the inverter has error codes and alarms for that. Besides, the vacuum is only rated 1000 watts and the inverter is rated at 2000 watts (1800 sustained). Everything else in the trailer is off (except parasitic loads). I have another vacuum (small shop vac) that works fine. So far, it's only this Shark vac that seems to be a problem. Rjxj, I assume you mean the DC cables powering the inverter. They are huge (4/0) and maybe 3 or 4 feet max. I am still thinking it may be a grounding issue but am curious why this vacuum is the only device (so far) that behaves like this. I would like to try another 1000 watt load, there may be an insulation break down in the vacuum that is tripping the GFI.

RE: Any electrical experts out there?

its simple to many watts there might just be too much watts. Can you check the wattage using b4 you plug in the extra load. and the starting watts in greater then the running wattage. not expert and not sure why it shows up with it tripping the GFI?

RE: flipping my axles for more height

I have done a few and all worked fine no issues. hardest part is supporting the trailer safely. etrailer.com was very good for the brackets.

RE: Propane quick change

I was able to place a tee in a line to the heater & extend it to the side of the trailer with a quick disconnect.

RE: What is the spring perch

the place where the axle attaches to the springs with a large U bolt is the spring perch

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
