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.

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.

RE: Carpet to wood floor replacement

Well, the point I was trying to make (tongue in cheek which seemed to get missed) was it would have taken a heck of an earthquake to move Aqua Dulce from 45 miles north of LA to 70 miles SE of LA. So there's either another Aqua Dulce I was not aware of or the OP needs to correct his signature! Your correct,as the politicians would say I misspoke. Will have to try to get into that part of the site to change it. Greetings from down the road in SCV. Let me know if you have any trouble finding your profile to edit it. You should be able to click View Profile in the box on the left in your last post. your advice helped and I changed it.Thanks

RE: Towing a 5th wheel with a 1/2 ton truck

my boy had a Ford F150 with ecoboost pulled his lighter weight trailer better then my 2500 Ram diesel. BUT he weak link was the brakes they did seem to heat up. handling was fine. power was great. gas mileage was awfull

RE: Carpet to wood floor replacement

Ed, you're showing in your profile that Aqua Dulce is 70 miles SE of Los Angeles. If that's correct, you guys must have had a heck of an earthquake since the last time I was down there! It used to be about 45 miles NORTH of LA. that was in I believe 1994 we were only slightly affected, but I was working graveyard in Burbank and it was strong and getting back and forth to work was a challenge, the night shift was helpful with less people. PS if and when you take out the rug (which was easy, the flooring in front of the sink was another issue, as was the 110 degree day I picked to do the job.) get a sample to try and test the slideout.

RE: Carpet to wood floor replacement

RE: Tire Ramp

TrailerAis Plus works great, I did need a 2X under it with the TrailAir Counterpoint suspension. I would assume the same would work with the MorRyde IS. http://i.imgur.com/BNVslY3l.jpg I did that one time with a Keystone Passport Breakaway 25fq...ended up with a new axle as all the weight tweaked the axle... must of been more than the drive on ramp, because I have had many times I have driven over things that put one tire off the ground with no damage.

RE: Tire Ramp

I have one and it is great, does take up a lot of space used it twice for a flat and roll the good tire on it after loosening the lug nuts and off came the wheel and spare was put on. took about a 1/2 hr. tst tire minder caught the leaky torn sidewall and pulled over and was still partially aired up. ps. I have the all aluminum one and my boys plastic one did not go high enough to get the tire off the ground. I just picked up an aluminum one at a garage sale for him.
