RE: Vintage camper

I once say a rampside that had been turned into an amphicar. It was a 62 or 63. Built as a demonstrater by a company around Detroit. I saw it in a collection in Ohio about 2004. It only had about 300 miles on it. In the bed was a stack of wooden folding chairs for people to sit on while in the water. Needless to say it never made it into production. Mark

RE: New 5er with painted front and rear cap

Not that important to wax it as it most likely has a base coat/clear coat paint job. Most of them don't fade. Mine was painted 3 years ago and still looks new with only occasional washings. Now the colored Gel coat caps..that's another story. B.O.true, Clearcoats do not need wax. Don't need it, but sure helps the bugs come off. I too use Insulator Wax. I goes on easy with a sponge, just don't let it dry too much before removal. Mark

RE: air bags on truck

If you need airbags, your overloaded! My truck is within all limits with my 15.5k loaded 5er. It both rides level, and handles bridge approaches and things like that much better with airbags. Mark

RE: 5th wheel Truck combo = terrible ride

Adjustable airbags instead of stable loads. And I agree, Your front tires are overinflated. The rears somewhat less. Mark

RE: Torq Lift tie downs and aftermarket fuel tank

I know Titan is what I want. My Torq Lift tie downs, the one by the tank was a very tight fit. I was hoping someone here might have had this setup and been able to give first hand information. Mark

Torq Lift tie downs and aftermarket fuel tank

I have an 08 GMC CC dually. I have TL tie downs and would like to install a larger Titan fuel tank. I remember the one at the tank being a tight fit. Has anyone here done this and shed any light as weather there is any interference? Thanks, Mark

RE: After market exhaust brakes

I have the what is called the Banks Brake on my 08 GMC. The settings are controlled with a knob. The Speed Brake has a dash top monitor like a gps. It gives a lot of info and allows you to do other things at a much bigger cost. You don't want or need anything that goes in the exhaust. Mark

RE: Bryce/Zion with dogs...

National Parks do not allow dogs on trails or anywhere other than paved areas & campgrounds. National Forests aren't as strict and state parks have the most lenient rules. We do leave our dogs occasionally but not for long. At Zion, you have to take shuttles to see the park and of course, dogs can't go. We camped in the park at Watchman and fortunately had good shade & comfortable weather so left the furry ones for a couple of hours while we took the shuttles around. We made a trip back to check on them then caught the shuttle again. I've not had any luck finding kennels that I would leave ours in. This isn't completely true but not far off. We live close too, and I volunteer at, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio. I don't know of anywhere except buildings, that you can't take dogs there. Mark

RE: Lift process for removing all 4 tires

If you have the Lippert levelup system, you should be able to raise the four rear jacks then the fronts. You might have to block up the jacks to get off the ground though.These jacks are rated to lift way more than the trailer weighs. To be safe though you should put stands or blocks under if you remove all at once. Mark

RE: 2015 Ford F-150 Aluminum Bed

I want to see one after 5+ years in the rust belt. See how it holds up against corrosion. MarkDon't need to wait. Look around the salt-infested parking lot of any boat ramp on the east and west coast. The difference in corrosion between steel and aluminum trailers is pretty hard to miss--especially on the boat trailers that use a combination of steel and aluminum components.I would expect Ford to make more effort than most any trailer mfg to deter corrosion. MarkAluminum deters corrosion all by itself without any help from Ford :) But the truck isn't likely assembled with only aluminum or stainless fasteners. And we'll have to see how well they isolate the aluminum parts from the steel frame. I expect they won't get it all right the first time. Mark

RE: Camping World wrecked our motorhome!!!

These things don't just happen at CW, ask me how I know. Mark OK, how do you know? My 5er, 1 year old at the time, was left at the dealer for warranty work. One of the items has higher than normal heat at 1 wheel. I was told 3 weeks to do everything. 6+ weeks later they called and said it was done. I live 250 miles from the dealer. When picking up I didn't find anything on the final paperwork that they did anything to look at the hub or brakes. I was told straight to my face by the head of service " we had that drum off and found nothing wrong". When I hitched to leave the brakes would not hold at an idle down the slope, in front of the service dept. After checking my truck and adjusting the trailer brakes, and no change, we decided they needed to keep it longer. He said he thought all the magnets were bad. Before I left they pulled the drum on the wheel I complained about. It was fully coated with grease. They had the trailer 10 more days and replaced all 4 brakes from the backing plates out. When we got there to pick it up, we were informed it had been damaged in the lot. If it had truly been done when they said it was, it would not have happened. Ironically, they agreed to pay a dealer close to us to do the repair. It was repaired by Camping World although the selling dealer was not. Mark Mark
