RE: Superglide Install

I have done two mine was the first and it went smooth and took about 3.5 hrs and that included the air bags. the second was for my boys 2012 ford F150 that one took about the same time for the hitch and that thing is a monster 12k with a longer throw because of the very short bed. was harder then for my Dodge with the 6.5 ft. bed 16k. we put air bags in his the following day. they don't fit, the brackets are in the way. we had to trim the airbag bracket down and then we welded them to the SG bracket and they then worked perfect not a real do it yourselfer for most.

RE: F-150 Ecoboost, built in generator

While I agree with everyone here about sizing everything correctly the EcoBoost will not get any better MPG towing than any other truck while towing a load. Sure it will get great unloaded, but if you are buying it to tow. mpg should not be a factor. If people are saying 10mpg towing, that is what my v10 gets but or course, that is all the time :) As for the 2015, I have not heard any rumor about an ecoboost in a 3/4 ton, but i do know the 19.5's are back for the 450, which could only mean they are going to compete with dodge and there 30000lbs. My boy gets terrible milage, worse mileage towing then my dodge diesel and 2500 more lbs tow trailer. and the actual non tow mileage is not up to what they claim, BUT does tow well

RE: New Floor Questions

I am surely not expert BUT I put in a vinyl wood plank by allure and when I was done and retracted the slide I can reach under and turn the roller that is not in contact with the vinyl floor at all. and when we had the rug it would leave a mark on the rug where it slid in and out. so all is good.

I built a hitch that mounted on the pin box. Used a swagman bike rack. Works great should have done it years ago. About 1 hour to make. that the route I will go. put a receiver on the pin box and slide in a bike rack and remove when not being used.

RE: Superglide capture plate metal wear??

Well what I see is the possibility that the hitch locking mechanism is touching the block. Its possible the capture plate is not centered on the king pin and is slightly forward of where it should be. I went out and looked at mine and its centered around the king pin. The hole in the capture plate is bigger than the king pin. I believe all the latching is done below the wedge. I have to go with wrong source for moving the trailer like a forlift with a catch for the ball only.

RE: F-150 Ecoboost, built in generator

We just got back from a trip to the beach my boy was pulling his 30 foot alumilite trailer WITH THE ON BOARD GENERATOR pulled like a champion. he has a 2013 ecoboost 1/2 ton Ford and it performed as well as my 1998.5 Dodge ram 2500 did. his trailer is about 2500 lbs lighter then my 5th wheel. and I do get far better milage but the truck can do it, and do it well, I have seen it and we are headed up the the High Sierras in about 3 weeks for another vacation.

RE: Question about winterizing with my pump ?

It is a filter got them on most boats too. my boy had water pressure issues and bought a new put when we went to install it we first removed the round ball and its filter was plugged, we cleaned it and he brought the new pump back.

RE: long, long trip with old truck

I have always heard if you change the tranny fluid you need to do it regularly if you haven't done it then don't. This comes from guys who work their trucks daily. I guess the reason being once you open the system it is never the same. Sounds pretty strange to me, but that's what many have said. I change mine every fall no matter the miles, but my truck always has a work trailer on it or pushing snow in the winter. x2 having mine done but only since it has low miles on trans. if not leave alone. I always fill a bit more comfortable with tire temp/pressure monitors.

RE: Jt Strong Arms or Steady Fast

I just picked up and installed a used set of JT's for $100 I installed the front 4 which was an easy install and the JT people are easy to deal with. the trailer is rock solid. I chose to not install the rear two and gave them to my boy, we will make some part to fit it to his 5th wheel.that said if I were to buy new and at comparable prices I would buy the steady fast, one less arm and a bit easier to get to adjuster and big tee handle.

RE: TST Tire system

I was in the same situation, some times it picked up all some times missed some and then would loose it later on. put in a repeater under the basement and now they can be picked up over 200 feet away can have the monitor in the house and check tires. did not want to spend any more money but was well worth it. try setting the monitor next to the non reading tire.

RE: Installing Receiver Hitch on 5th wheel

I welded a square tube to each frame rail. The tube has a hole in the center like a receiver that I use to bolt two different rear accessories. One has a 2" ball for pulling my alum fishing boat. The second is a tray about 18" wide that I can haul firewood, burn barrel or my generator. this is what I built for my rear rack my pull my offroad baja soon. I used grade 8 bolt nuts and washers.used grade 8 nut bolts and washers. then I had to cut through the fiberglassthen I plasma cut a square opening to put the receiver hitch in and fully welded that up

RE: cargo carrier on bumper

just built a bumper off the frame of the 5er and put my 3000 yamaha on it and a couple other items works great. http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/5th%20wheel%20Sea%20Breeze/th_IMG_20130429_171117_286.jpg http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/5th%20wheel%20Sea%20Breeze/th_IMG_20130418_112256_123.jpg http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_IMG_20130730_132458_512.jpg

RE: 10' Kayak onfiver Ladder-Need Ideas!!!

I have seen people use the rear rack to support the boat and the ladder. http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/5th%20wheel%20Sea%20Breeze/IMG_20130429_171117_286.jpg http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/5th%20wheel%20Sea%20Breeze/IMG_20130429_150556_964.jpg
