RE: Aftermarket exhaust (electronic) brake

You should be able to activate GM factory tuning for the speed brake in the medium duty trucks. I think it works in all lbz and most early lmm motors. http://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/how-tos-diy-write-ups/321393-lbz-how-activate-factory-turbo-brake.html?nocache=1432181141678

RE: Terrible Experience

I've stayed there and I think there is a sign stating $10 pp per day for day use/visitors. Most of the park is not full hook up so they do the honey wagon thing. Great place for kids but i would go somewhere cheaper if you don't have kids

RE: Worn/broken spring shackles-word of warning

It is such a joke that the manufacturers put such junk on their trailers. I also replaced mine with the Dexter ez flex, shackles, and wet bolts.

Damaged bearing w/pic

Repacked yesterday and had to change this one out. It was the inner bearing. Castle nut seemed too loose. Would that cause this or overloaded? It was on the heavy side (slideout). The other wheel on that side was starting to do this too but not as bad and I changed it too. Had been a little over 2 years since last repacked. http://i1345.photobucket.com/albums/p678/elkhorn98/20150509_081514_zps7eek6fl3.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum recommended limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: How to set brake controller with self adjusting brakes?

I did adjust them before going for a drive and I guess I have to keep using them to get them broke in. They are now working good but can't get them to lock up. I had someone tell me with self adjusting brakes they won't ever lock up. Is that true?

How to set brake controller with self adjusting brakes?

Replaced my complete brake assemblies with Dexter Nev-r-adjust electric brakes. How should I set my controller? After installing we were going for a test drive and had no trailer brakes. Did some manual adjusting and then went and they are getting better. Will do another break in drive but don't know how I should set my controller.

RE: Adjusting Trailer Brakes

Looks like self adjusting brakes.

RE: Maxxis tire failure

Ok I always hear you need a stiff sidewall for trailer tires and st tires are stiffer. But this seems to be completely false in my experience. I switched to lt tires with a similar load rating and my lt tires have a much stiffer sidewall. The st stiffer sidewall seems to be marketing hype. Anyone else see this too?

RE: Simple To Understand 7-Day Timer

I have a Stanley 7 day digital timer that is very easy to program. http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-31215-TimerMax-Grounded-Mechanical/dp/B0020ML74E

RE: Trailer Tires

I think trailers don't come with decent lt tires because that would cost the manufacturers a few extra dollars. So we get some overseas st no name brand tires instead. And since the manufacturers got the dot to approve st tires now we have a hard time getting tire shops to put superior lt tires on our trailers.

RE: Installed Mobile Outfitters Shock Kit

I think so but it's been awhile since I did this. The videos shouls still be on you tube somewhere.

RE: Doesn't seem to have been many ST tire failures this year.

I think there were more reports of st failures in fhe last year. But I could be wrong. Maybe since the economy is improving people are not rving as much...flying, hotels, cruises, etc.

RE: Duncans Mills CA to I5 directions

If you're heading to Oregon you could go 101 north to 20 and east to I5.

RE: "Crystal Basin" campgrounds (CA)

You won't have any problems with your size or finding a spot mid week since school is back in session. I like gerle Creek its quiet up there but mid week this time of year I doubt you'll have neighbors close to your site at any of the campgrounds. Here is more info on all the campgrounds. There are pdf maps that show the sites. http://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/eldorado/recreation/camping-cabins/?recid=71008&actid=29

RE: TowMax Tires

Report the failures. Those things should be illegal. They're like the demo batteries in kids toys...just enough to get you home then get real batteries.

RE: Short 5th wheel

You might want to also consider used. You'll have more options from arctic fox and others. We do exactly the same kind of camping and will want a similar sized unit in a few years.

RE: Yamaha 2400 isHC powering RVP Air Conditioner

Something doesn't sound right. I can run my ac and microwave at the same time with my 2400.

RE: Trailer tire ratings?

St tires may be cheaper but st tire markers recommend replacing them after only 3 years. Lt tires can go twice that long so I would argue you pay more for st tires over the life of your rv. Oh and lt tires are superior...review the dot testing requirements. I think of st tires like demo batteries that come in toys. Just enough to get you to buy them.
