RE: Axle Flip

I have done two so far. not too bad to do you will need some axle clamps for got the name. OR do a search there is a complete bolt on kit available. You will need to disconnect the wiring and remove tire and wheel and maybe the spring from one mount.You must have the trailer supported, left the trailer connected on the truck for the 5th wheel.

RE: Can't believe folks connecting up sewer without gloves

I am more concerned with having a special hose for washing the sewer hose, I have one painted in red, gloves sometimes if I want to dig into my pockets for some M&M as soon as I am done.

RE: Solar help

no expert at all, din my 250 watt install myself I use a house type 250 watt panel 35 volt and a MPPT charge controller with a separate read out works great at times puts out 15 amps batteries are always fully charged and I do not keep it plugged in to house power anymore. I have to 6volt deep cell batteries would like more but no room cost something around $400 a couple of years back. my roof is curved where I had to mount in so I put down two lengths of uni strut and attached the panel on top of the uni strut, the solar panel dealer had some really nice hold down for uni strut like they use for houses. Four holes in the roof with stainless steel screws and sealant.

RE: Need opinions on lifting my 5er this way...

I like heavier material and I would put a diagonal from sides to the center of the crossover bar.

RE: 5th wheeler, Trailer and generator

I would think about 250 watt solar panel, and a 2000 watt Honda/yamaha generator and your set to go.and a good inverter is a plus. not going to run your A/C but good for most camping

RE: Best 5th Wheel Hitch Lubricant?

I do not know if this is correct but would like to here others opinion, I just purchase the CRC fast dry Moly Lube spray. this seems like the hot item. http://www.amazon.com/CRC-03084-Net-Weight-Lubricant/dp/B0013J62P4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1423696885&sr=8-1&keywords=fast+dry+moly+lube

RE: Black Tank Leak - questions

I had a severe black tank leak, on a travel trailer that we used to have. Instead of buying a kit, I went to Lowes and bought a can of ABS cement and a short piece of ABS pipe. I used a reciprocating saw to make several cuts along the piece of pipe. I gathered all the cuttings and put them in an old cup. I poured some of the ABS cement in with the trimmings and stirred it up. I had already cleaned the crack as best as I could and scuffed the area around it with a wire brush. I put a couple pairs of disposable gloves on and spread my weld in and along the crack. That was 5 years ago and that tank has not leaked since. this maybe the answer if it is ABS tank, I do read that some of the newer tanks may be polyethylene this procedure will not work with this cement mix. my freshwater(polyethylene) tank leaked and I paid someone to fix it with some type of adhesive, it lasted 1 year. then leaked, I took it out again and welded it up, I took an old big solder iron from my dad and silver soldered a stainless steel disc to the bottom and welded up the tank and it has been good for a couple of years now and has about 118 gallon of water in it right now. I now have fixed other plastic items and will melt in metal screen door wire for extra support. I have gotten pretty good at it not so pretty but strong. Polyethylene tanks are cake to repair! As you found, it is a thermoplastic. Proper welding is to use an extrusion welder with filler rod. You'd be surprised how easy it is to find someone that can do this for you! Your method works, but you are locally thinning and altering the properties of the polymer a bit. When I checked for a repair shop in los angeles there WAS one and they moved out of state, I do have a hot air electric heat welder that you feed the rod into that I found hard to control, I purchased poly rods as filler and built up the area and what I did not mention, I also added a lot of extra support under the tank.

RE: Noob as noob gets. Non commercial class A license?

now we are talking california only right? sorry, yes that was in california.

RE: Noob as noob gets. Non commercial class A license?

I had to take 2 written tests, the Class "C" and the non-commercial Class "A" (same one you will have to take). That was it. Do they have you do the driving test with your rig ?? I was told yes by others not DMV. But why is it that the dealer says nothing about this or even ask to see it before you leave the lot? You have to have insurance. If medical is required, why do I see the drivers that I do. I've seen some that can't even get out of the rig, much less drive it. Dave My friend borrowed a flatbed trailer to make the test easier

RE: Air Compressor

I have used this compressor for years as a builder and home re-modeler, It is quiet and that was the main reason but it also preforms well and has a max pressure of 125lbs. I bring it with me in the winter and it is great for topping off the tires and general use around the campground. http://www.amazon.com/Senco-PC1010-1-Horsepower-1-Gallon-Compressor/dp/B0000AQK78/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420854642&sr=8-1&keywords=air+compressor+senco that is what I use in my 5er got it for $5 had no regulator added one and can run off my 1000 watt inverter. I made a 50 foot air hose with 1/4 in plastic line used on air bags and put normal air fittings on for filling my trailer tires and for my truck rolls up and takes not space. I will soon be putting a viar (sp) on my truck with tank and replace the one in the trailer.

RE: Urgent pull rite hitch help needed

If you Pull Rite is like mine, you can pull the 2 pins that hold the head on the hitch. This way the camper will lift the head up and off the rest of the hitch. Then just put the head back on. this will work as a last resort by pulling the pins on the side of the hitch, but to do it correctly you will need to find the resting place of the hitch and it will release I get it so I see light between the hitch and the trailers pin plate. if it does not release then put in neutral and try to take tension off between the two. If that does not work get some help to try to pull release lever while you move truck slightly back and forth.

RE: Generator gone!

I put my yamaha 3000 on the ground and the ranger warned me of what can happen in that case. that was a few years ago at ventura on the highway, so what I did and you may not like the idea but I have to leave the gen. in the back of the truck at ventura to fit in the site. and I have a bolt that comes from the bottom of the bed of the truck that goes into a hole in the bottom of the gen. and I drilled a hole in the bolt and two flats for the lock to fit. I remove the oil change access door and put the lock on the inside of the gen. can't get to it with a bolt cutter. or grinder which I am guessing they used to cut the cable on yours.. I built a receiver for the back of the trailer and usually mount the gen in the carrier in the receiver and lock it the same way.

RE: Replacing coax?

My cable was connected to a amplifier. When the amp was turned off it went direct. Lots of loss through that switch. I was surprised it even worked. I just disconnected it from the switch and connected it to the input of the sat receiver, then to the switch. 3rd that
