RE: Emergency Brakes

I made that mistake years ago on a pull trailer and everything worked perfect,was leaving for vacation after the grave yard shift and left the pin out and came home and all was good. I think as long as the magnets are in contact with metal they will not get fried from the prolonged energization. The brakes themselves do nothing till the disk forces the energized magnetic puck to pull the pads open I think you are good to go amy have taken some long term life out of the batteries though.

RE: Let's hear it for Tire Minder!

I purchase a new to me trailer, and on my first trip had a blow out, changed the tire and repaired the plastic that got pulled away from the trailer, I then purchased tst tire monitors, I checked the monitor and it showed that the tire that had the blow out that now had a brand new tire in the rim was low again. filled it up to just be safe and a few day later I had a low tire reading on the monitor. removed tire and wheel and put it in a tank of water to find that the tire had a leak from the center of the rim. I then removed the tire and found a small pin hole in a weld from the manufacturer. I silver soldered the weld area and remounted the tire and have not had a problem since, with out the tire monitor system I probably would have has another blow out. They now have nearly paid for them self in one occasions.

RE: best new 5er about 32 foot. to purchase.

All you folks have been so helpful, my boy is coming over this Sat. to get some work done here. I will pass on all the information to him and then we will get together with his father in law and go over his options. not sure if he can wait for the big RV show coming up in Pamona, ca. I went there a few years back and they have nearly every type of RV available. thanks so much for the info.

RE: best new 5er about 32 foot. to purchase.

just for quicky are any of the ones on the list substandard?? He is getting out of the offroad buggy thing because of an serious accident/injury and getting rid of his 3 axle 45 foot toy hauler and wants something more suited for camping and vacationing. A lot of places or not suited for the real big long trailer. so that is where we came up with the 35 foot size, The buggy thing is on hold for a while.

RE: best new 5er about 32 foot. to purchase.

Sadly, most of them on the list are not suitable for his truck. So unless he is going for a new/newer dually he will need to stick with a fifth wheel under 10,000 GVWR Arctic Fox does have several models that might work if he is very careful. But they are heavy for their size, so again look at GVWR numbers. I just check with my boy, he has a 2008 Ford F450 dually.

My boys father in law wants to get a 5th wheel about 32 foot. he want a quality one and has about 100k to spend. We are in So. California. What are the best ones out there for his purchase. some of the models names that came up with a quick search where New Horizon Artic Fox Montana Cardinal Hitch Hicker Forrest River Mobile suites My boy and I both have 5er but we are in the 12 yr old models and under 10k. He has a newer Ford dually 450 I believe as a tow vehicle. thanks for your help Ed
