RE: How much grease in the Ez lube?

Check the back side of the wheel. It may be squirting out inside the hub. This can be a big problem if it gets on the brake drums. I have read that this can be a common issue with Ez lube hubs.

Airstream - Olympics in Rio bound

We were camping last week on the Oregon Coast. Ran across this parked at the beach. It was early AM and I didn't see anyone around to talk to...they were probably still asleep. There was a generator sitting outside and a table and chairs set up in the sand. Just thought it was interesting http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t280/oilchange/General%20Archive/20160520_085908_resized_zpsqflizhmw.jpg height=400

RE: rv.net forum fixed my fridge

Man i'm happy I found this site. Glad the frig fix was successful.....but..this site can also cost you tons of $$$$$. Just wait until you start reading about all the stuff others have and that you gotta have. And then there are all the mods that others have done that you just have to do...:)

RE: Awning Sun Protection

It's a good idea IF you can reto-fit your existing awning. Beside sun protection, it protects the rolled up awning from scraps/tares/abrasion from closes by over hanging foliage. Ours came already with a metal wrap protector....similar to this: http://awningoutpost.com/graphics/products/alumaguard11.gif

RE: RV Extended warranty

Sorry to hear about your all too common experience with your extended warranty... No comment about Camping World. But, you post about, "Not Covered," should be a sticky that anyone who inquires here on the Forum about these extended service plans could refer to... I have always felt that they are a looser for the customer and a big winner for the company.

RE: Tekonsha’s Prodigy P2 controller setting

Your setting really depends a lot on your set up and could and will be different than what others have... You will just have to experiment a little with it. Here is the manual:>>>LINK CLICKY Start with an initial setting of 6.0 and adjust up or down from there. Hope this helps. Have a good trip.

RE: Black water tank flush

Your factory installed black tank flush will have its own dedicated built in back flow prevent valve. It's part of the system....

RE: Towing tire pressures on short wheel base vs long

I try to now make all this RV'ing thing more complicated than it needs to be. Tires...when towing - air them all (truck and trailer) to max side wall pressure.

RE: screened porch attached to awning

We didn't have much luck with our attempt... ended up in a pile in the shed and sold at a garage sale after two uses. >Kind of a pain to set up - especially when moving often. >Not easy to take down in a HURRY if the wind comes up and we had to roll in the awning quickly. >Pain to store..especially when wet. I'm not a fan of attaching anything to the awning. Consider a free standing screen room.

RE: Newbie mistake......

Oh...I'll have to try that "valve" thing...:) We've had 5 different trailers and never could get the hot water to work......:S Heck, I make "newbie mistakes" every time we go out. Yesterday, I noticed the grab handle was still out as we were rolling down the inter state.

RE: No AC allowed?

Common? Not at all. Did you ask them to clarify these rules? Speculation: they ether have an electric grid issue in their campground, or they are trying to save on their power bill. If they enforce this rule, they will have very few return customers. If it were us and we were there, we would hitch up and move on down the road.

RE: Electric tounge jack

Are you positive you hooked up your jack when you redid your batteries? Tongue jacks have a separate dedicated line that needs to go to a positive post. The ground is established through one of the 3 mountain bolts for the jack itself.

RE: Trailer Sway Question

Agree with others.... >not enough tongue weight >wrong bars...you should be running the 1500 lb bars >marginal truck for a 10,000+ lb GVWR trailer. Our trailer is 10K GVWR. I'm running Blue Ox Sway Pro with 1500 lb. bars 2500 diesel. Very solid and stable towing.

RE: Nascar - Toyota

JGR (Toyota) has won 7 of the last 12. Not exactly a level playing field. It's all good with me. I have always been a Joe Gibbs fan...as a coach, as an owner and as an all around good guy.

Nascar - Toyota

Just wondering... Will nascar make some, "adjustments," to level the playing field and limit the dominance of the Toyotas?
