RE: Outside Shelves

Looks like it is very securely attached to the side of your trailer.. Did you use some kind of sealant in all the bolt and screw holes?

RE: cleaning rubber roof

Spic-n-Span or Murphy's Oil Soap is exactly what the manufacturer of ours recommended.

RE: Shipping a small trailer & truck across US vs driving?

If I lived in SoCal and wanted to do an East Coast leaf season trip I sure wouldn't pay to ship my tow vehicle and trailer cross country. I'd either drive there or fly, rent a car and hotel it. Just doesn't make sense financially to ship our entire rig. ok bear...you beat me to it. At least we are thinking the same..

RE: pull trailer hitch problem

Been using this for over 10 years....lots and lots of camping. But, any heavy duty axle or bearing grease should work just fine. I wouldn't run it without something. I guess you will just have to clean it once or so each season. Possibly the lock mechanism is just slightly bent or damaged and that is what is causing you the repeated problem. https://www.etrailer.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/pics/5/8/58117_500.jpg height=200

Perfect - while I watch my Seahawks carve up the Lions.

RE: LED strip Lighting aniversary

Come on now! What kind of modification post is this? No photos, no source for the light strip? I'm going to report you to the moderator.....:B

RE: Small leak in windows

Do you have the heat on inside...? Maybe not a leak but just condensation.

RE: Winterizing

Won't be a problem if you did a good job of winterizing.

RE: atwood

About 10 years ago the same thing happened to me. Finally realized that I had turned on the electric side without having filled the tank..burned out almost instantly. The element is easy to replace and not expensive. (not saying that this is your issue, but it's worth a thought.)

RE: drain pipes

Just like at home... Start by removing and cleaning the trap...easy to do. After that, a Zip-It or a snake. Zip-It available Home Depot, Lowe's etc. http://mechanical-hub.com/new_site/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/brasscraft1.jpg

RE: 1st time winterizing

Or....you could do like many of us have done forever without any freeze damage - and that's winterize by blowing out the lines with compressed air. Anti-freeze only in the traps. (Let the debate begin...again).

RE: Two black water tanks

Two black tanks..? Do you have two toilets? Very strange...I have 2 gray water tanks which is not uncommon. Call Dutchman and get some clarification. Toll Free - 866-425-4369

RE: DOT Age of Tires

Certainly does appear to be 1st week of 2014....unless I'm reading it wrong too. If that is correct, that's not so good When I got our Maxxis, they were only 6 weeks old when they were installed....

RE: I have a weight dilemma.. what would you do?

I'm not thinking you need to go all the way to a dually. 3500 would be good enough. It has been said that you can also add another leaf spring to your 2500 and increase your payload to that of a 3500....but this is endlessly debated here on the Forum.

RE: Puget Sound Shop Recommendations for Cummins

Haven't used them yet, but have heard some good things about their service... Plateau Diesel If you do use them, please post back with your experience + or -

We only connect our hose and dump when necessary - about every 3 or 4 days. For me, the sewer hose hanging off my rig and extending into a sewer hole, in direct view of my neighbors' out door living area, is not a pretty sight, IMHO. Exactly what we do too....and for the same reasons.

RE: propane ?

I always top ours off after the last trip of the season before winterizing...then they are ready to go for the next season and I don't have to remember if they are filled or not... (Honey, do we need propane, did we fill those tanks in the fall....:h)

RE: Iron Out to remove toilet rust stains

My understanding is that Iron Out is very similar to CLR which is very corrosive. I would be very careful using it around any rubber seals... What warnings on on the label?
