RE: 101 south over to I-5 around San Francisco

Hi. Why not GO east over a I-5 by-pass route, and jump over to I-5 before you get to S.F. Or try Cal S/R 99 which will put you closer to stackton which is still east of I-5. I came down from Wa.,Or. in Sep. / Oct. 2015. WATCH OUT FOR BAD WEATHER.

RE: Tow hitch ?'s

Hi. First find the trailer you want. And then get a hitch to fit the requirements of that trailer. TWO other requirements to put on your list. Electric brakes, brake controller, wiring link between tower and follower.

RE: how to get rid of diesel smell inside of cab

Hi! Good Luck. I had an '85 F-350, Once the diesel oil gets into the fabric is there forever. When I first got it the local fuel pit would give out plastic gloves to keep the fuel off your hands. That didn't last long.

RE: Do I need sway bar

Hi. About the first or second time your trailer moves you from one lane to another after a bus or Semi passes you. Or side wind from 10 to 20 MPH. You will have the answer to your question.

RE: No power to 7 pin plug

Hi. Have you checked the brake-away unit to see if its seated? Check the plug and receiver for corrosion? If there is a fuse block in side the RV, Check there? With a test lite you can see if there is power to the fuse block, you made need help here. When all else falls hand over hand the wiring. Check to see if TV and RV are grounded? Make sure the pins for plug and received are correct. One thru 7.

RE: Trailer hub temp question

Hi. You may want to look on line. Each mfr. will establish a range for there bearings. The bearing on the sunny side may run warmer than the shadow side. But a range of 120 to 160 should be OK. Anything over 180 or a spike in temp. is the start of trouble. Remember to re-grease every two years or any time you feel maybe its time. Its better to service bearings, than sit along side the road because bearing failure. have a good time!
