RE: Good lubricant for landing gear

I am thinking along the line of a dry lubricant that will not attract dirt.

RE: Is this normal AC operation?

Not sure what they charge should be a lot cheaper than new.

RE: Is this normal AC operation?

Acting very much like a low charge. Either it devoloped a leak or has a very small leak from the factory. Ideally you want to fix the leak b4 charging and to use soldered in valve to charge. Would not hurt to take spray bottle with soap now to look for a leak with the bubbles at the leak

RE: Is this normal AC operation?

inside is the evaporator and outside on top in the condenser. If you have access to the coil bends on each side of the coil that is a good place to feel the cold and the whole row from top to bottom should be cool if only a few then there is likely a low charge. but it is a good time to clean the outside coils that can lower the work the usit need to do and the high pressure that it sees if clean. I think they make a spray solution that cleans the coil, but a low press spray of water to flush the coil clean. too much you could get water inside so be careful. From the top the entire evaporator will most likely be covered. Good time to oil the fan motor usually a small plastic or aluminum plug is removed and a few drops of oil on each end bell of the motor. good luck be safe.

RE: Is this normal AC operation?

Yeah, NO. Had 80-85 going in, and 74 coming out of the main vent right next to it. Is the evaporator and the condenser clean?? if so I would tend to believe that is low on charge. The fact that it freezes up make me lean toward a low charge. If you can get access to the evaportor the coil that cold air comes out of. and run your fingers along the end coil bends you should have all the the bends cold if just a few are cold and the other warm good sign of a low charge also.

RE: Is this normal AC operation?

I would be curious of the temp of the air going into the return by the filter and the temp. of the air out of the ducts. Should see close to a 20 degree differance.

RE: Short bed Vs Long Bed Truck pulling performance

I like a long bed for space and not having a slider, I have a shortbed and it rides no differant them my boys longbed. seems like the longbed has more axle rap and has an extra support bearing for the drive shaft. Dodges for us.

RE: JT Strongarm setup with 45 degree rear stabilizers

I really can't see how supporting the rear stabilizers side to side does anything usefull. I have yet to attach mine to the rear BUT seem like they are more prone to back and forth then side to side movement.

RE: wheel bearing

when you say repack does that mean flushing in solvent and renewing the grease for the inside and outside bearings.

RE: wheel bearing

I would think if you have been in water crossing condtions it may be necessary to do more ofter water tend to get sucked in as it cools down the bearings.

RE: RV in line water filters

I have been using a whole house filter, purchased at Home Depot, for the past 14 years. I use a charcoal filter in it which filters finer and also takes out any funny taste in the water. Change the filter as needed. I put the whole thing in a plastic milk case and then on the ground under the edge of our slideout. I use brass quick connect fittings on all hoses. That keeps it out of the sun and also keeps it cooler. This has worked well for us for many years, lasts longer, and is not expensive like the smaller inline filters are. Barney https://i.imgur.com/aX7EFMul.jpg width=200 https://i.imgur.com/icUeHyhl.jpg width=200 https://i.imgur.com/5toCHk9l.jpg width=200 I have that filter mounted under my trailer and have a house fitting next to the tank fill valve and all water goes through the filter first then to the fill for the tank so all water is filtered and then have the small one that came with the trailer under the sink seems to work good.

RE: flex tape on leaking water tank

I used Flex tape on my gray water tank last year. Used 50ft thinking if a little was good a lot was better. It held for a summer. Camper goes in next month for a new tank. It was worth a shot. my wife did a survey with flextape and I am very impressed I will be getting a roll to leave in the trailer.

RE: flex tape on leaking water tank

I plastic welded my tank, large crack at the bottom of the 120 gallon tank. has been in place for over 5 years no. also added an exptra support for the tank. I made my ownd welder but Harbor Freight sells them. can heat infuse some metal screen accross the crack and layer over it with the same material the tank is made of. don't think much of anything will really stick to polyethelene.

RE: Any of you ever use a 5th Wheel Dolly like this?

I wonder how much the hitch weight would typically be of a 30 footer? Last night while trying to sleep all these ideas were running through my head. Could I get an old beater golf cart & mount a 5th wheel on it to move it around? Or would simply collapse the golf cart? Or could I pick up one of the tiny fork lifts cheap? Open to ideas If the one that Ivylog gave the link to is not commercially available, I suppose I could get one fabricated for me? a good figure is 20% of the total weight. for the tongue weight

RE: Tire Pressure Monitors

The TST is a very popular system, but be advised that the time delay between the sensor losing contact with the monitor, and an alert that this has happened, can be up to an hour. It has happened to me in the past and can be a bit disconcerting if you're unaware that it can happen. The repeater is an extra cost option, but with your length it might be a good idea. Yes, I noticed that too on a couple of occasions. When it happened I got a beep. In my case, I simply picked up the receiver in the cab, moved it about 2", and it immediately reconnected. I believe it is a connection loss between the repeater (connected to TT battery) and the receiver (in the cab). I've been meaning to see about relocating the receiver to the rear seat to see if it improves, just forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me! LOL That is what I Just discovered with mine, just brought it closes and it stayed connected. Had a blowout on one trip and was able to pull over as soon as I heard the alert and there was still air in the tire without damage to trailer from flinging rubber and steel.

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
