RE: Brake Line Placement for TT Disc Brakes

I carry the plug that came on the brake pump unit, I can use that on any tee to isolate a problem in the event of a mishap. Of course, I have to carry a spare quart of fluid too. Just did my brakes with Steel lines...easy to bend by hand with no kinking. pics can be found here http://forums.woodalls.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29045938.cfm

RE: Fiver Pin Separated From Hitch on Interstate

before this thread even happened... I always wondered why there wasn't a secondary safety latch like the one being designed above. Not to steal your thunder, but I had the same idea in my head...just need a small spring on it. :W

RE: Disc Brakes

There is no grove in rotor. It never made contact to wear off coating.

RE: Fiver Pin Separated From Hitch on Interstate

With the attacks going on if I was the OP I doubt id be back. Really why does he have to prove anything to you guys? If you don't believe he lost his trailer then move on. I'm with the crowd...pics or it didn't happen.

RE: Disc Brakes

Got the wheel and caliper off today, everything was installed correctly. The bad outer pad is disintegrating on the outer edge, once again inside pad is ok. I don't know if it is a bad pad, or the caliper is not square causing the bad wear and disintegration. Waiting to hear back from Titan. http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2744_zpsnrnjluvi.jpg http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2745_zpsx1dsocty.jpg http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2746_zpsukwiizjm.jpg

RE: Disc Brakes

Pad looks misaligned in the caliper. Have you removed to inspect? I can see the pad is in the caliper properly, I will pull the wheel off and check the friction surface of the pad....soon...I report back :)

RE: Disc Brakes

700 miles on the brakes and they are great. Had to make a hard stop at interstate speeds and it was nice not to panic with the trailer pushing the truck. one issue is one of the pads is not wearing on the disc properly, waiting to hear from Ron. the back side pad is good as is all the others. Any ideas? Pic 1 normal wear. http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2742_zpso4uzfnsf.jpg Suspect pad http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2741_zpstg1cmqiw.jpg

Never faster than 65mph, however. Same here, cruise at 65 mph

RE: New Pinbox - New bolts?

When I changed my pinbox, I went with Grade 8 all new bolts, nuts, washers and lock washers. I torqued them to proper specs for those bolts. Glad I did...plus they look better :) http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2082_zpseq402ntt.jpg

RE: Maxxis Tires Report

same results here...had them on my previous trailer and went 20,000+ miles with no issues 15" load C. Came as an option on my new trailer. 16" load E...same as OP. So far no issues.

RE: Question about 50amp inlet plug

you can find some that are twist lock collar vs. the screw on ones. Your inlet should be able to take both.

RE: Wheel position on RV frame?

Some semi trailer can also slide the read axles forward or aft to adjust the amount of pin weight on the truck.

RE: black tank rinser

I find after the tank has drained and the black rinse is still running, I fill the toilet to the rim and dump the contents, repeating 2-3 times. This seems to help break up and move the last bit of debris out of the tank.

RE: Disc Brakes: 1 Piece Rotor/Hub vs. 2-Piece Rotor & Idler Hub

I like the idea of only having to just replace the rotor if needed than to replace the whole hub/rotor combo...less expensive also to just replace rotor. I like the one piece, not that much and by the time I need new rotors, I will need new bearing. The new hubs come with the race (bearing cage) installed, makes the install job easier...IMHO. To each his own

RE: 2016 F-350 rear seat head rest removal?????

My sig. truck XLT....just slid up and out. I'm not sure why yours would be different. We are talking about the center, not sure if the outside seats are harder. But it was easy to remove. I leave mine off, works great for hitching.

RE: Disc Brakes

I'm in the process of putting my order together for a disc brake mod on our 5er. I'm at the point of adding a brake line kit and prefer using cut to proper length hard lines (yes, I have good tools for proper 37 degree flares plus tube benders) but have 3 of the MORryde X Factor spring bracket cross members to install at the same time. These cross members are located against the 5ers belly and add a few 'kinks' to the hard line assemblies. This brings up a Kodiak product which is a flexible brake line. My history using lengthy non-reinforced flex lines on high pressure systems is that they lead to spongy and inconsistent component actuation. This brings me to my questions - (1) has anyone used that Kodiak flexible line kit and (2)if so, is there any less then great brake application. I had issues going from side to side by the axles myself. So, I elected to Tee the lines in the front and run one line down each side. Then I tee'd at the wheel again. The steel lines can be bent easily by hand without a tool

RE: Disc Brakes

I would strongly advise to re bleed the brakes after the first 100 miles or less. yes, planning on it :)

RE: Disc Brakes

Congrats on your new disc and the self install. We installed them on our previous fiver and ordered them from the factory on our current rig. Would never want another fiver without them. I think it is important to run the lines in a fashion where they are least likely to suffer damage from possible road debris. As we know, the lines get damaged and you have no brakes. I was extremely fortunate to not have lost my brakes when I could not avoid road debris on a trip a few years ago. The debris hit the sewer discharge and broke it off at the cap, ripped off both holding tank handles, and missed the brake line by about an inch. It would have been ripped loose or bent to a point of being useless but I got lucky. So just a thought for those with disc, consider a path of protection in your installs. I even considered running the main line inside of a heavy gas line tube dons the side to the split to protect from such a thing in the future. I have a line plug, so I can plug either the left side or right side at the front of the unit or and individual wheel, if I have a problem. At least I can limp along with half brakes. I also will carry a line wrench and extra fluid with me.

RE: Timken bearings...when would you repack?

Slightly off subject but was wondering if Mobil 1 Synthetic or any synthetic grease is the best stuff to use for these bearings? Been using Moly SO2 and have wondered about this stuff. Don't know how much this matters...But Dexter list Mobil 1 as an approved grease in their literature. Not why I use it, but just FYI.
