RE: Terrible workmanship in our new trailer

I have had my Forest River Surveyor for two years now and have had only one problem, the ignitor for the water heater was misaligned and would not light. A slight movement of the ignitor and problem solved. Have had no other issues. I then look at my pickup, it has had five safety recalls for repairs, two computor chips replaced, the radio replaced. Goes to show you, no matter what you buy, be ready to fix it sooner or later. It doesn't matter what it costs.

RE: leave roof vents open during winter?

I too have the Max Air covers and have been leaving the vents open all the time, year round. Some dirt and dust blow in but it's no difference then if the trailer door was open. To me, the fresh air smell is a welcoming smell of Spring.

RE: Dometic refrigerator at higher altitudes

DW wife and I went to RMNP in August and had same problem with water heater and fridge. We where at 8,300 ft in the Moraine campground, so said my GPS. After a few days of trying to keep the water heater and fridge lit and running, it dawned on me that at higher altitudes, less air causing not enough air for combustion. I opened the water heater cover and took off the fridge outside cover thus allowing more unrestricted air to get to burner for better combustion, or so that was my thoughts, and it worked. Fridge pilot lit and stayed lit and water heater lit off, had a ok flame but not the best. Both ran fine for the next five days and the pilots never did go out. Not saying this is a cure all for everyone, just my experiences that might help someone the next time they are at higher altitudes. When I got home both units ran like brand new, altitude was now 1,020 ft.

RE: Level Hitches

Equalizer now offers a hard rubber pad to place on the L bracket under the sway bar. Reduces noises greatly, not all, but a lot. Equalizer says that it does increase sway a little bit because of the small amount of friction that is reduced by the pads but DW and I just returned from 2,000 mile trip and I myself really didn't feel any loss of sway control. I really like these pads because they do reduce noise. DW is happy about that. Cost was if I remember correctly was $15.00 plus shipping. Was with it for me.
