RE: Direct TV

The trailer mounted automatic systems are nice except when your view to the sky is blocked. A tripod mounted dish can be moved around to a clear area of the sky.

RE: Direct TV

Whatever dish you get, standard def 18" or high def 36"... The most important part of setting up the dish is to make sure it is absolutely plumb. If you are off a few degrees on the ground, your off by a few hundred miles in space. A quality tripod is a must especially with the larger HD dish. I recommend tv4rv.com. Their tripods are expensive but very worth it. http://i.imgur.com/9ozufrBl.jpg

RE: Tongue Weight Scale

True! But I weighed mine once, hardly worth buying a dedicated tongue scale.

RE: How to protect the edges of your roof from covers

Get the correct size cover and cinch down the fasteners so it doesn't move.

RE: Possible slide leak, input on a solution...

Can you adjust the slide on the side with the gap so it closes tighter?

RE: universal sealant/caulk?

I've had very good luck with OSI Quad found at Lowes. It's a urathane sealant, goes on smooth and tools easily with a soapy finger. ProFlex seems to be very hard to work with. Dicor self leveling on the roof (or Eternabond tape).

RE: Discovered a leak, where is it coming from?

Here's a link to my pressure tester that I made: Link

RE: Discovered a leak, where is it coming from?

I double what westend says. More than likely that leak is up near the roof and running down the inside of the wall. That wall board is the same stuff they use in showers so it is somewhat water impervious. Hard to tell in the first photo but are those staples rusted near the bottom? Could just be the wallboard soaking the water up, could also indicate water coming down. Is that the rear of the trailer and if so is there a marker light above? It looks like the darkest part of the floor is in the center. Water could be coming down the inside of the wall and the plywood is soaking it up under the floor covering. I would think if the water heater was leaking, you'd have the darker part near it.

RE: Water damage on bottom trim inside door

Mine did this. The problem is either the seal around the door has failed or water is getting into the latch and running down the inside of the frame. That trim, at least on mine, appears to literally be vinyl covered cardboard. It will soak up the smallest amount of moisture. I ended up resealing my door all the way around and replaced the trim with something similar I found at Lowes.

RE: Questions for the weight police

With the proper hitch setup, you should be within the capacities of the truck. As donn0128 said, it's going to push you around. Been there, done that with a 1/2 ton.

RE: Leaking outside kitchen door.

If the seal around the door is in good shape I'd bet the latch. My entry door does this sometimes. I caulked all around the frame but if I sprayed the door, water will seep in the door handle, run down the inside the frame and exit onto the floor. The latch is not weatherproof.

RE: wd hitch and 2 1/2 to 2 inch reciever

^^^ same for me. There is a little bit of slop but have had no problems with my Equal-i-zer brand. Tows great with it.

RE: Anyone added auto levelers?

$7,000 is a lot of beer! Not that hard to level. Not 7k hard.

RE: Eternabond lifting rubber roof

Doubt the Awesome would cause lifting. Has nothing in it that would. I'm thinking the same as 93Cobra that the membrane didn't bond well with the deck and the tape is just exaggerating it.

RE: Eternabond lifting rubber roof

Wonder then if the Eternabond is just showing the areas that didn't originally adhere.

Eternabond lifting rubber roof

Last year I applied Eternabond over all the factory applied lap sealant on my roof. I cleaned the surface using a 50/50 mixture of water and LA's Awesome cleaner. The Eternabond is holding well however I've noticed in a few (small) spots the rubber roof has lost its bond with the decking directly under where the Eternabond tape is. The tape itself is still stuck to the membrane, the membrane is lifting off of the decking. These are small 1" - 2" areas in probably no more than 5 random spots. No where else is this happening. Could the adhesive in the Eternabond be causing this to happen?

RE: Is Zinger Crossroads a decent trailer?

Have had our Zinger for 5 years. No problems at all. Solid (heavy) trailer. Would buy another if shopping.

RE: Travel Trailer Cover? Good/Bad Idea?

I've covered mine during winter storage for the past 5 years (how long the cover lasted). I will not be buying another cover. I see no need to anymore. The sun does more damage than ice/snow does and I don't bother covering in the summer months.

RE: New truck, New trailer, TONS of sway!

I was in the same situation but not quite as bad. Had an '11 F150 EcoBoost with P rated tires and a 1400 lb payload. Trailer weighed in loaded on the scales at almost 8,000 lbs. An Equal-i-zer hitch certainly helped the situation but the minimal payload and P rated tires still made my ride stressful. Traded that F150 for an F350 diesel that has 3500 lbs of payload. Towing problems gone. You may buy some time upgrading to LT tires and dialing in your hitch but in reality, your trailer is too long and heavy for the F150.
