RE: Hitch clunking

This morning I made some shims out of tin shingles. I made them 3 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. I cut the hole in the middle out with a coal chisel . Took about an hour to make eight of them. Putting two on each leg took out all of the slack.Can't wait to hook up the rig. I have a Curt Q5 (20K) and I have heard the dampers that Curt sells only last a short time before they are worn out. I will see how long the tin shims last. I expect that the tin will be damaged over time. If they work I will look for a harder material that I can cut and shape. Doug That is one of the many reasons I got rid of my Q16 and went with a B&W

RE: Ford F250 6.2L V8

no srw trucks, but that one spring in the back makes a difference and so doesn't the door tag if you were to ever get pulled over. while it never happened to me I will say I feel a little more at ease knowing my truck now has enough capacity. If he hasn't bought the truck why not buy a 350/3500, prices aren't that much different. But hey while your there its only another $1200 for a DRW truck. Pulling signature 5th wheel at 12,000 lbs, under ALL weights.

RE: Great time in Myrtle Not so much on the trip home

If it were me, I might overlap it with some flat aluminum sheeting painted white and do both sides to match. Just a thought

RE: Anyone switch from a motor home to a fifth wheel?

I went from a Class A 30' to a Travel Trailer 23' to 5th wheel...see signature. This is my favorite of all 3 :)

RE: Dreams do come true...

Did you include some extra depth, for the next rig we all seem to eventually purchase? 20' x 45' building...Inside depth can easily take 43' I can open all slides and even the awning to let it dry out if it's wet when we get back.

RE: Dreams do come true...

by request... Front of house, back of house and bulbs I used. I used 8 CFL 200 watt equivalent, actually use 65 watts. I did the Electrical myself. I really appreciate all the compliments, and I hope this helps someone with their project. http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/IMG_1839_zpsbpe1cevg.jpg http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/IMG_1838_zpshyhb2srk.jpg http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/10-26-14%20_zpst5s4sesg.jpg http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/10-25-14%20_zpsuyhq8zor.jpg http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/12-9-14%205_zpsbti6fvru.jpg

Dreams do come true...

Not trying to brag or gloat...but this was a multi year plan: New house with property to build a RV garage...New truck to pull 5th wheel...RV garage built...new 5th wheel... And return from a vacation/road trip, clean it up and park it in the back yard. Hard work, savings, patience and advice on this forum...it has all paid off. Thanks and just wanted to share, http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/IMG_2260_zps8kjoxohr.jpg http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/IMG_2261_zpsaoufzr1g.jpg

RE: Why a 5th wheel over a tow trailer?

You can still use your bed, just not all of it. Also, a cargo rack on the back of the 5'er makes up for the loss of the bed. Not mentioned, is the cool factor when hitching up. :) I find setting up my 5'er much easier than my old TT, mostly due to all electric stabilizers etc. After 47,000 miles with my TT and now 7,000 miles with my 5th wheel, I'm really enjoying the room and all the advantages of the 5th wheel. Smaller trailer would be better for me to have a "bumper pull", larger trailer for me needs to be a 5th wheel.

RE: airline profits

They made lots of money, but many have lots of debit that needs to be serviced and many old airframes that need to be retired and replaced.

RE: Roof top AC mounting??

Mine is simply bolted to the roof. Take off your ac shroud and you will see four lag bolts near each corner. Piece of cake. Ditto with my Dometic Quite cool units

RE: 2013 Ford F350 trailer braking issue

great info...^^^ but... my last trailer with this same truck (Old trailer weighed 6,000 lbs with 3,500 lb axles vs. current 12,000 lbs with 6,000 lb axles) would really pull on the truck if I used the manual controls and went to full braking on the trailer. Now when I go full on the controller, it feels really weak. Also, I can feel the trailer pushing the truck some under normal braking. I think I need to measure the voltage drop from the truck to the trailer brakes.

RE: 2013 Ford F350 trailer braking issue

I have the same issue, I blame both my new trailer and I would like more power from the IBC...running on 10 with not enough brakes. I have adjusted my brakes twice now om my trailer with no change. Subscribing.

RE: VERY strong sewer odor

When I read your post I heard that you went camping, used the toilet with no chemicals in it, then drained the tanks, and then you added chemicals after you where done using it. No wonder it stunk! You first put in the chemicals with water, then use it, then you drain the tank of the chemicals and what ever you put in the toilet! Chemicals first and not last when you are done. When you put the chemicals in with a little water and let it sit for several weeks the chemical lost its potency and things got stinky. Chemicals need to be renewed in order to keep working. Ditto^^^^ clean well and leave empty if not being used
