RE: Anyone towing with mild lift kit and larger tires?

Check wheel weight rating before you buy, most aftermarket wheels are a lot less not a little than factory. Also make sure the wheels are hub centric not lug centric that will effect your load rating also.

RE: Drop the 5th and tour local area with the tow vehicle?

We have done it. We go to a local RV park talk to the manager and park 5th wheel were they want us to. Usually by the front gate or the maintenance shed. Never been charged anything to leave RV for a few hours.

RE: Aftermarket TV Wheels

Wheels need to have a higher rating than the tires.

RE: Aftermarket TV Wheels

You need to change out your wheels. They are for show not towing

RE: 30/20 Amp Breaker Worn???

Check wire at breaker and at the A/C. Two RV's ago we had a loose wire at the A/C causing a hot and tripping breaker.

RE: Reese Goosebox and Lippert Frame Failure Report

The Mad Norksy I do understand the warranty and what is and not covered. I was was only stating what I believe to be true. You still have to decide for your self what hitch to use there is good and bad in all designs. The following is from a travel trailer warranty statement. Damage or loss caused in whole or in part by the unauthorized attachments, modifications or alterations to the structure, body, or frame of the recreational vehicle including but not limited to trailer hitches for towing, or platforms for supporting cargo;

RE: Reese Goosebox and Lippert Frame Failure Report

Mile High The goose-neck adapter I have connects like a fifth wheel hitch and it has a plate like a fifth wheel hitch. My Fifth Wheel hitch if I pull the pivot pin and raise rise the trailer I have a 8 inch long fifth wheel adapter connected to the trailer. I have a full tilt head. I do not do that to disconnect from trailer. The way my both hitches connect at the pin box is the same the pin slide into hitch from the rear and is held in by a jaw no movement there, they both have a lever effect on the trailer. The fifth wheel is 8 inches down and the goose-neck is 12 inches down is all i am saying. I know you will not agree that is just the way I see it.

RE: Reese Goosebox and Lippert Frame Failure Report

I have towed fifth wheels with both a goose-neck adapter and a full tilt fifth wheel hitch and old style fifth wheel. The following is what I have seen. The goose-neck moves the pivot point down about 12 inches. The full tilting (fore/aft and side/side)fifth wheel hitch moves the pivot point down about 8 inches (tilt pin located 8 inches down). A old style fifth wheel moves the pivot point fore/aft down about 4 inches and side/side down to the axles (no side/side on old style). My opinion only about 4 inches between goose-neck and full tilt hitches I do not see a problem here. No I am not a engineer just years and many miles of towing. Now let the hate begin.

RE: Dish Tailgater on a TC - looking for custom mount ideas

The handle points north because the dish does not rotate 360*. It stops before the handle, if it did not all the wiring would get pulled out.

RE: Missing Trim

I do not think you lost any trim. But that it has shrunk do to age and the sun on the vinyl. Looking at the trim about a inch up it looks like it was behind the bottom trim cover at one time. For example I have washed ours and a few days later I have had the trim do that, nothing do to washing I just knew it was there a few days before and now its shorter. Any RV store should have what you need.

RE: Mold order problem

Like everyone else has said. If you smell mold you have mold. Open up the walls and dry it out.

RE: Onan muffler spring squeak?

Sounds like a bad muffler bearing. Sorry couldn't help myself. Maybe look at the muffler to generator connection that might be loose

RE: 89 Mallard RV starting to lurch at standstill.

RE: Your Must Have Spices When RVing?

Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning. It has to be a Louisiana law that you always have some, if it isn't it should be it goes with everything.
