RE: Just ordered a Jayco X23E!

Congrats on the new HTT. I am still towing my 2005 25E Jayco HTT. We love our Jayco. We have lots of memories with it. But that is what it is all about making memories and having fun with your family.

RE: Antigua 215sb Roof Repair...updated

I have nearly completed a 3D to scale ((+/-)one inch) of our 2005 Antigua 215 SB. Its got some work left, used not completely accurate furnishing models but its very, very close. https://i.imgur.com/RShH3Jy.jpg?1 Great job on the 3D picture. Although mine is a Jayco it is the same year and same type of roof. Never had to fix anything on the roof but had to fix a spot on the floor from a leaking tub drain that we did not notice until damage had been done. It is a pain in the butt to work on. But that is the trade off to keep these things light weight. Although I have no roof leaks mine is getting recoated this spring with this stuff. Liquid roof Good luck.

RE: Replace old brakes

I can't see a darn thing wrong with the old brakes. That's what I was thinking. Just wasted some money. No not a waste of money but cheap insurance. One of the brake hubs was sticking and as the trailer is going on 13 years old I decided to just replace them. Now if I was one of those guys that never tow their camper more than 20 miles down the road then you are correct. However we tend to travel with ours through mutable states at a time on busy highways. I have been in close calls because of idiots on the road. I once had a car cut me off and then blow up just in front of me. I managed to not hit them and get off the highway so I could help get them out of their burning car. I want my rig to stop when I need it to stop. Not I hope it stops as I have never replace the brakes in 13 years. Yes that old hub in the picture although rusty was still working. Other hubs on the camper were not working as they should. I do not want to have to fix a brake hub from an old brake shoe that broke off when I am 1000 miles from home.

RE: Replace old brakes

Great Job! RVing is supposed to be relaxing, and an unscheduled brake job in an unfriendly place is not relaxing. OP doesn't say where the new brakes came from, but I've used Eastern Marine for a lot of trailer and brake parts. From my experience, they actually stock a lot of what they sell, and also actually know something about what they sell. I've gotten mostly boat trailer parts from them, but I'm on a sale mailing list and see a lot of brake, tire, and wheel specials. In some cases, shipping gets really pricey, but not always. Could be worth a look. Thanks. I got them from etrailer. I have bought from them in the past and have been very happy with them and their products. Here is the link to the ones I bought.

RE: My map needs more color

Apparently Photo bucket now wants to charge you for photo hosting. I guess I will find a new one. I switched to flickr.com. They don't make it easy since I have to copy the jpg link out of the "Embed" link that Flickr provides. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4738/38797186254_090a5d27f7.jpg Yes flickr is kind of tricky. I just used the new app created for RVnet and it seems to work good.

RE: Replace old brakes

I can't see a darn thing wrong with the old brakes.Well, some of the parts look a bit rusty, perhaps suffering from a little neglect. But the brake shoes, from what I can see of them, look fine, and the magnet looks okay too. Perhaps it is just the perspective. Yes the shoes on the one in the picture where ok but I had a few of the magnets not working the way they should. Yes I could have cleaned them up and maybe got a few more seasons but for less than $200 I got all four new self adjusting assemblies. I did not want to take everything apart only to then have to order parts.

RE: Replace old brakes

So easy to do when you just buy complete assembly on backplate. 4 bolts/2 wires. Good job! Did you burnish new shoes....? (30/30/30-----30 stops from 30 mph with 30 second cool downs between----gentle braking not hard wheel stopping ----wheels should not lock up/stop while doing this procedure) Thanks Yes I did something along those lines. I kind of lost count. Yes the complete assemblies are the way to go. It took me a day per side as it was. But I took the time to repaint all of my frame while the brakes and wheels where off. Plus being interrupted by a ten year old. :)

Replace old brakes

So I live in PA and my wife wants to take a long trip south in early March. So knowing that our travel trailer was due for new brakes I decided to do the smart thing and replace them this last fall while it was warm before I winterized it. That way I would not be freezing my fingers doing it in February. :) Also took the time to add new wheels and tires. Old rusty brakes. https://i.imgur.com/d2HHlDal.jpg New Brakes. https://i.imgur.com/EHwmJMUl.jpg New wheels and tires https://i.imgur.com/UwDhTPDl.jpg
