RE: Leaks galore

This is the leak test rig that I built using a blower from Harbor Freight and a concrete form from Lowes: http://i.imgur.com/eg9olIhl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/S3dmRhBl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/8Z63WHxl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/xzrqESZl.jpg The form is fitted into a piece of cardboard I cut out to fit the baggage door. I sealed it with duct tape. Make sure all your vents are closed and lock the range vent for maximum pressure.

RE: Doh!

That is an easy fix. Siding on trailers starts at the top. So any damage low is easy to repair. Be glad you didn't have a smooth sided trailer :-p

RE: Rust colored fluid in freezer

Would a 2015 model year already be rusted out?

Anyone from Good Sam care to clear this up?

RE: Water Damage/Roof Leak

Another place to check for leaks on Zingers is around the rain gutters and the area where the aluminum starts to curve down from the roof right where it meets the insert moulding. I was chasing a leak in the cabinet next to my bed for a long time. Always thought it was the cap seal. Even put Eternabond tape on all the seams. Turned out to be the deep valleys in the aluminum and insert moulding. Todd

RE: Swipe & Save Start the pump?

If you have to register your drivers license, that should cut down on the abuse. Local gas station in my area "Sheetz" allows you to register your license with their loyalty card. It will start the pump on cash purchases. They know who you are if you drive off. Just have to keep the loyalty card in a safe place.

RE: Portable Ice Maker

We have one for home use. The thing I don't like is the ice is wet and when you put it in the freezer, you get a solid block that you have to break apart.

Swipe & Save Start the pump?

The latest edition of Highways in Trailer Life page V states that if you register your drivers license with a Pilot Flying J rep, you can "Start the Pumps" at the truck lanes using the GS Swipe and Save card and then pay inside after pumping. The Good Sam Web page FAQ says otherwise, start the pump was discontinued due to abuse. Which is it?

RE: CAT scale result and a question

Great info. Thanks!

RE: CAT scale result and a question

Along the same thinking, can I take the gvwr of the truck (11,500) and subtract the payload (3,520) to get the weight of the truck? I pretty closely added up the weight of bodies and cargo and subtracted that from the scale weight and came close to the above calculated number, around 8,000 lbs.

RE: CAT scale result and a question

Lol, I had an F150 EcoBoost before the 350. Glad I traded up!

RE: CAT scale result and a question

Are you asking for the GVWR on the trailer? It's 7,800 lbs.

RE: CAT scale result and a question

Go back and weigh without the trailer. Perhaps another time. Would need to load the truck up as I was with dogs, kids, wife, etc, etc. This weigh was just for my curiosity and thought I could come up with a ballpark trailer weight based on the trailer weight and tongue weight that I had.
daystrom 08/10/15 01:45pm Travel Trailers
RE: CAT scale result and a question

Somewhere between 6,800 lbs and 7,750 lbs then!

RE: CAT scale result and a question

It was. Equal-i-zer brand 12,000/1,200 lb bars. I also had a full tank of fresh water (50 gallons) at 400lb.

CAT scale result and a question

Had my rig weighed at a Pilot/Flying J the other day. These were the results: Steer 4,880 LB Drive 5,220 LB Trailer 6,800 LB Gross 16,900 LB I didn't have time to unhitch the trailer and just weigh the truck HOWEVER I have weighed the tongue before using the bathroom scale method and came up with 950 lb. Based on this, can I assume that the trailer weighs 7,750 lbs? The certified weight of the trailer by the factory 'as-built' is 6,240 lb. Not sure how to come up with the total weight of the trailer loaded up. Todd

RE: KIB system monitor removal

Thanks for the info. Didn't want to put too much force on the tab if it wasn't intended to move!
