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: 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

I replaced my rug with vinyl wood look panels, look nice, easy to maintain. will have to be concerned about pop out clearing the wood panels

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.

RE: Sealing Holes...

steel wool type material is a good deterrent.

RE: Replacement fresh water tank question

I welded up my 120 gallon freshwater tank, if it is new enough you might get a replacement BuT mine was 15 years old. I took an old soldering iron 150 wall and silver soldered a stainless pad to the copper of the soldering iron and purchased some rods of the same material and welded it up started by making mistakes and making it larger then it was the got the hang of it and welded a seem on the bottom about 18 in long. and it has been in service for over 2 years and took a 4000 miles trip this year did not leak a drop. May be worth a try. I did have to remove it from the trailer and also added a some support to the tank. Good luck there was not anybody in the Los Angeles area that does this any more.

RE: Unhook for quick overnight stop

I think some of the newer vehicles disconnect the power to the trailer with the truck off. otherwise it is a good idea to disconnect the cord.

RE: mice

Do you bait the traps? I've heard some folks just put traps around the tires and landing gear. I ask about baiting because that can attract them inside. If so, what bait? Peanut butter works in the house but turns rancid in a week or so. I use Fresh Cab and usually only see mice sign where I forget the Fresh Cab like the battery compartment. I have been using peanut butter are you saying fresh cabbage not sure what cab is?

RE: mice

I got them contained to one lower cabinet but can't find a way to no getting them in there. I had the water tank out and sealed all opening. I now get one every couple of weeks in the trap.

RE: 5th wheel with a gooseneck conversion in a short bed Dodge

Hello all. First, It's veterans day and I wan't to say Thank You to all Veterans who may read this. My freedom is not free and I thank you for serving our country so I can live as I do. Here is my dilemma. I've got a 27 ft 5th wheel that I've pulled behind a a half ton short bed for a couple years with no problem. I recently just bought a 2009 3/4 ton Ram with the 6.7 cummins and a short bed that has a flip over Gooseneck hitch in the bed of it. I really like the flip over idea as it keeps the bed free for hauling other stuff. I really do not want to have to put a 5th wheel hitch in the back of it if I don't have to. I've seen other people use the bolt on conversions to the 5th wheel so it can be hooked up to the gooseneck hitch; is that a good way to tow and would I have room for turning so the it doesn't hit the cab? Any and all replies will be greatly appreciated. Anderson Hitch, is what my boy is using, it uses the ball in the bed to atacha a pyramid frame that connects to the 5er trailer hitch the whole thing ways about 5o lbs. rated for I believe 30k lbs. check it out.

RE: Pullrite Super Glide? or Reese manual?

sure seems worth it when you forget to manually set the hitch back on a quick u turn and have to get a new side for your cab.

RE: 'Correct installation of JT Strongarm Stabilizers

I installed them as close to the bottom as possible, on one side I have it a bit higher because I have one leg with a screw adj. foot. and it doesn't allow me to go to the very bottom. I did call strongarm because I bought my set used at the swapmeet and didn't have all the details and they were very helpful. and after you are set up and level you tighten the SA and then lift the legs till you take the slack out of the SA. and you are good to go.
