RE: Violentl vibration

Warped rotor on disc brake probably. Fairly easy fix but feels bad. I'd suggest using your exhaust brakes or lower transmission gear downhill. Your brakes will last much longer and it's safer. Yep. sounds exactly like what a warped rotor would feel like. does it do it with out the trailer??? BTW. Rotor are easy to warp. Washing a vehicle with cold water while the brakes are hot, will do it every time.

RE: Why is it...?

I'm waiting for someone to explain WHY you're angry with Marcus, including why the President's remarks are ok with you. Being negative is too easy. I suspect that won't happen because in order to explain WHY, they will have to admit that they see nothing wrong with the KKK or white supremacists. And no matter how much they agree with them, they have learned that voicing that agreement makes them look really really bad. Actually. I'm ok with it. Because he truly called out the KKK, and he ALSO called out Antifa, and BLM. He called out ALL of the home grown Terrorist hate groups. and I'm good with that. Why would any one not be? As for Marcus. he just ran his mouth. He didn't put his money where his mouth is. If he had. He would have dropped sponsorship of the NASCAR Trucks.

RE: YES or NO only...!

I have no use for a person that can't see the evil of both sidesI have no use for a president who can't see domestic terrorism and call it out for fear of upsetting his base. Actually he did. But he called out both sides. Liberals hate that.

RE: YES or NO only...!

The "poll" is of absolutely no value to anyone, including Marcus. If you have an issue with what he said, he really couldn't give a rat's Aze, and made that clear. Personally, Like any decent American, I have no problem with what Marcus said, and have no use for a president that finds multiple ways to signal to his Nazi, white Separatist,KKK followers that he supports them. Yep. I'm going to ask. By denouncing violence from all parties involved. White terrorist groups, as well as Liberal terrorist groups, that signals KKK followers, HOW? Me. I have no use for a person that can't see the evil of both sides

RE: YES or NO only...!

If you are going to truly vote, then you need to toss in this very forum into the mix. Based on his comments will you continue to use this forum. Come-on now! You can't have your cake and eat it too. If you feel pashionate enough to boycott the store, does that passion run deep enough to boycott using HIS forum website too. Get real now! Think about it. Not shopping at CW has no real impact on folks. They will just buy their stuff elsewhere just as (or more) conveniently, and most likely save money in the process. But leaving this forum? Now that will hurt and will affect their day-to-day lifestyle. And people only make a stand when it won't affect them adversely. So, I doubt we will see any of the "anti-Marcus comments" people leaving here anytime soon. No one is trying to impact folks. Just CW sales

RE: Why is it...?

I never shop at CW any way. I already knew what he is. but you did notice. He didn't pull the sponsorship. Just all talk as usual

RE: Swear my last question not. TT weight

Once I get home this weekend I'll post the payload. Thing is. If you do your homework. You can find a good sized TT that you can easily tow. Length has little to do with weight on many new trailers. My TT in my sig is 31 feet. But with all factory accessories, awning, AC, fridge, furnace, battery, and empty propane tanks. It weighs 4811lb. Once loaded to camp. It is right at 6000lb give or take a couple hundred, depending on where it is going. Your truck should have no problems towing it. It is a bunkhouse, and sleeps 10. So take your time, and you can find the TT for you, or hey. buy mine from me, and since the whole family don't go all the time any more. I'll get a smaller one. That sleeps 2, TWO, dos, deux. Get the hint. What kind of trailer do u have? I have a APEX, 288BHS. 2 full size bunks, Queen in master, sofa makes a bed, and table makes a bed. Really, Light TTs are every where. Google is your friend

RE: Swear my last question not. TT weight

Ok it's gvwr is 6,325. With that low a GVWR. I'm guessing. Your payload / carrying capacity, is in the 900lb range. Doubt it would be that low, all depends on the truck's dead weight with a full tank of gas, no passengers, no cargo - subtract that number from the truck's GVWR and the OP won't be guessing, he'll know what it's actual payload capacity is. Agree. I'm just guessing based on experience. The only way to know is to weigh it. But it would have to have a awful light curb weight to have much more payload than that.

Ok it's gvwr is 6,325. With that low a GVWR. I'm guessing. Your payload / carrying capacity, is in the 900lb range. You will need an extreamly light travel trailer for that truck. Think about it. By the time you hook the 700+lb tongue weight on the truck. Only leaves 200 or so lb for you and the family in the truck

RE: Swear my last question not. TT weight

Ok I'm going to pass on it. But know I'm looking at 29ft that is at 8200 lbs Again. Look at the yellow sticker factory dry weight. example. My yellow sticker dry weight is 4811lb. That is with out any fluids, but does include battery, and empty propane tanks. My GVWR is 7400lb. That is the max it can weigh. That is 2689 pounds of carry capacity. I will NEVER load the TT to 7400lb, But it does weigh loaded, ready to camp 6000lb. The GVWR is not the end all, and in truth means very little to me. you really need to stay in the less than 5000lb dry range, +/- 500lb and right around 6000lb loaded. Give or take a few hundred pounds. 6000 to 6500lb loaded ready to camp. Is where you want to be

RE: Swear my last question not. TT weight

Ok I'm looking at Jayco jay flight 32' fully load its 9000lbs. My truck can tow up to 8500lbs. I know I'll never fully load it. Would you buy it or stay clear of it? Honestly (flame suit on) I look at the weighed at the factory yellow sticker dry weight. If the sticker lists the Jayco at 7400lb, and I think that might be close on the 32'. I would pass. You will put close to 1000lb in it, and that puts you at 8400. At which point your TV would be over loaded, because it really can't tow 8500lb. Every pound you load into the truck reduces the tow capacity of the truck by that much. So if you and the family weigh in the 300lb range, and the hitch weighs 70lb. Your tow capacity is reduced to 8130. and if you put wood, or well anything in the truck. The tow capacity is reduced by just that much. So in short. IF the yellow sticker weight (dry sitting on the lot in front of you) is over 6000lb. I'd pass.

RE: Cleaner wax on fiberglass

I use MeQuires paste cleaner wax in the Red can. It lasts a full year, IF you do NOT use dish washing detergent to wash the TT.

RE: Ford Trucks

Life circumstances could be the reason. One or the other could have gotten sick, or worse. there could be a divorce, or maybe it was more than they could pay for. and its possible they just don't go much. My 2014 Taurus only has 25000 on it. Were it me, and the price was right. I'd jump on it with both feet. It is still under warranty

RE: First TT - Apex vs. Lance

In defense of the AZDEL. It was used for years in the high end MH, and has only recently became cost effective enough to be used in Medium priced TTs. If it is good enough for high end MHs. it's good enough for me. And it is light. There are several TTs with the same floorplan as mine. They weigh from 1100 to 1500lb more. Than mine. My APEX is 30', and 4811lb per yellow sticker. They use the same appliances and componets. I highly doubt that Azdel makes very much difference in weight even at 50% less than Luan. A sheet of 4x8' of Luan is 11 lbs. At 50% thats 5.5 lbs. If your 30' TT took 19 sheets of Azdel for all 4 walls then thats only a 95lb reduction. I think there's other areas on/in your TT that are used for weight saving. Many other things are involved if those other TT's weigh 1100-1500 lbs more. As for insulation values being 3x better. Well 1/8" plywood has an R value of .15. 3x .15 is .45. Again I highly doubt anyone could tell the difference on a cold or hot day with .45 more in R value. Not dissing Azdel as it's a great product that eliminates some areas of concern. I think the main benefit is the resistance to water, not it's weight or R values. doubt if you want. But real world. same floor plan. more than 1000lb difference. and again. In the same heat. The APEX is cooler with both using a 13.5 AC, and the APEX has much more SQ feet. Same floor plan? I bet you could compare a lot of TT's with the same floor plan and find weights all over the place. I bet you could find one lighter than yours that uses luan. I'll let you do it. Find a 30' bunkhouse, with slide that weighs less than 4800lb yellow sticker. Then, Get back to me.

RE: First TT - Apex vs. Lance

All the chat about AZDEL on the Apex. Unless I'm mistaken, Lance has been using it for years haven't they? But they sure are proud of their product:E Don't know how long they have been using it, or if they do. I do know a friend of mine has a Lance truck camper around 1998 yearish. It rotted in several places. Over the front windows, and under the rear steps. had to be cut out and replaced. And it did it after only a few years. That wasn't AZDEL.
