RE: Dingy towing braking systems

I have SMI's Air Force One and tow my Honda Pilot abd have been very satisfied with it. Easy to connect and gives proportional braking on the Pilot. I would recommend it to anyone that wants great braking system that is easy to connect. https://smibrake.com/towed-vehicle-braking-systems/air-force-one.php

RE: Interesting article on tire rack about tire applications

IMO Trailer Mfg. always recommend ST tires only and not LT tires because the sidewalls are not the same.I would suggest to check with your Trailer Mfg. for what they recommend.

RE: Wax?

I have been using Collinite's Insulator Wax #845 for every RV (TT and MH), Auto's, SUV's and custom cars I have owned since 1984. It is the easiest and best wax I have ever used. http://www.collinite.com/automotive-wax/insulator-wax/ I wax my MH with it twice a year and use less than a bottle. I also use it on my 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix and it has the best shine with on swirls or "cobwebs" being a dark blue metallic. It is all by had and does not require a buffer and comes off very easy. Durability is the best of any wax I have ever used. Collinite has many other products, paste wax, etc.

RE: Eternabond vs MFM Peel&Seal

I sealed my roof 4-5 years ago and no sign of any leaks. I also sealed the roof on my enclosed car trailer, easy and don't have to worry about it not working. I believe you get what you pay for. I buy mine from Best Materials http://www.bestmaterials.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=1021

RE: Entry level have anything to do with quality?

Entry Level means you get what you pay for, don't expect Cadillac quality for Hugo price.

RE: Run generator to charge batteries (how long)

I run my Gen once a month for a min. of 1.5 Hrs. which will bring my House Batts. up to 100%. I also load the Gen by running moe of my Heat Pumps. When I exit the MH I switch off all of my breaker panels and the 12v switch at the door. During storage I also remove the fuse from CO2 and propane detector as they draw current and will discharge the batts. and start beeping when the batts. get low.

RE: 2004 3/4 ton Suburban with the Big Block 8.1

Actually, the small block puts out more HP than the big block. Yes but less torque and lower Max. trailer weight capacity and a 1500(1/2 ton) vs. 2500(3/4 ton) model. Bigger suspension, brakes, tires, etc. If I recall the 6.0L only had a 9,000 towing rating vs. my 12,000 rating. I always felt that torque was a key vs HP in towing. For ex. my Cummins ISC is 350 HP but 1080 ft. Lbs.torque w/Allison 3000MH 6 spd. moving my 29K MH.

RE: Roofs-Fiberglass vs. Rubber/TPO

I have a fiberglass roof that is 12 years old and no leaks or problems. I sealed all seams on the roof a couple of years ago with Eternabond and no leaks or problems. I wash my roof before every trip and when I return. I tried Red Max Pro a floor coating, re coating it every two years and it lasted for about 5 years and then started to flake off. Now it is back to where I started. I originally waxed it by hand, but that grew to be too much work. During that time it sat out in the sun most of the Summer and that is hard on anything. Now when I am not using it I put it into my VersaTube RV shelter.

RE: Dogs rideing in RV

Both of our Bassets are Rescue dogs and travel in their crates, one is a soft crate and the other is a typical large Airline crate. They are very comfortable and secure while traveling, any sudden braking would not cause them to become flying objects and get hurt. They have been crate trained since we adopted them 5 years ago.

RE: Newbie winterization question '06 Knight 38PDQ

I'll just mention that many, many people don't bother with the Pink Stuff except to pour it down the drains to fill the traps and put a little in the bottoms of the grey and black tanks. The reason is that it takes so much water to get the pink taste and color out of the fresh water in the spring. And with most of the US in drought conditions, it's just prudent to use the 'Air' method for your fresh water lines. Air method uses an inexpensive tire pump to blow water out of the fresh water lines starting at the inside shower head. I just open the lowest faucet and blow it out there. Also remove the pump and drain it. I use Pink Stuff after I blow out my lines. It is easy to eliminate the pink taste in the Spring by sanitizing the water system which I do. You may find you cannot get all of the water out of the valve that is operated by the foot pedal in the toilet, or the valve in the back of the Refrigerator that controls the water to the Ice maker. All it takes is a small amount of water in either valve and you will be replacing, as I learned the hard way. One-two gal. of Pink Stuff is very inexpensive IMO to be sure.

RE: Towing Honda Pilot with Jayco Melbourne Class C

If your Honda Pilot is newer than 2004, Honda does not recommend towing any Pilot beyond 2004 four down. Suggest you check your Owners manual.

RE: Dumping Gray Water In Your Campsite

In South Carolina it is illegal in RV Parks, etc. It could get you a fine.

RE: 2006 travelsupreme autoleveler will not work

I have had this 40 ft. Coach since new. Today is first time auto leveler did not work. When i push autolevel it just makes a noise and shuts off. It doesn,t deflate the airbags or start any movement of the jacks. Anyone have any help for me??? Thanks Had the same issue on mine after it had been sitting for a while - Ground wire and the connectors all needed to be cleaned up. If I recll - ended up having the local mobile tec come out to find it 9on my Coach it was passenger side front under the bumper/fender) - took some time but everything worked as new after the connections and the ground were cleaned. Hope this helps, If this doesn't correct the problem I would contact Equalizer for their technical support, Friday as they will be closed for the 4th and not sure if open on Monday.

RE: Maybe I should get an older DP

Skip the first one and rent one for only weeks of use a year. Not Cost effective to buy one considering maintenance, storage, etc.

RE: Flashlight for camping needed

I highly recommend Mag Lights. http://maglite.com/ I have a several Mini Mag LED's that I have found very bright that come with a nylon belt holster to carry and are brighter then many C or D size Mag lights. But if you prefer the D size 2 0r 3 cell LED lights are even brighter and have a Lifetime warranty. Lowe's Stores often sell them at Christmas for very low sale prices, vs. retail.

RE: installer refrigerator

I recommend Precision Painting in Bremen, IN. They do all types of Interior work, and other services. Call 866.909.4473 (Toll Free) and talk to Paul Conley, Service Manager and tell him you were recommended by Arnie Krause. He has done all of the Service on our Travel Supreme since purchased. http://www.precisionpaintingrv.com/

RE: How many of you simply don't bother with hookups?

We start out with full water 100 gal. tank as one of our pets has problems with strange water. Our Black and Gray tanks are 60 gals. On an overnight stay I only hookup electric. I usually don't dump the black tank unless it is 60% or more unless I am going to a electric and water site for extended stay and no sewer hookup. We very seldom dry camp so that is not an issue. The majority of the parks we stay in are water and electric only with a dump station, that we use when we leave.
