RE: Help identify this travel trailer

Have you looked for the weight sticker, usually located on the left front. May be washed off though.

RE: Adding 12 Volt receptacle in back storage area

You can run the ground from the receptacle, anywhere to a ground.Run a single wire from battery to a fuse somewhere, and back to the back. Be sure and use a wire size big enough for the distance.

RE: Why all the hate on 1/2 ton tvs

Many people consider, not only what you can tow, but how much weight you can carry. The loaded truck, with full fuel, people,dog, and the hitch, plus 12 to 15% of the loaded weight of the trailer, should not exceed the GCCW. Our 1/2 ton pick ups, fall short sometimes. I am not one who believes that if you are rated to haul 1000#, that you can't get by with 1100#, but some are. Just my .02. There will be someone else jump in soon. I guess I type too slow.

RE: To Awn or Not To Awn

If you just need fabric, you can find it at a very reasonable price, if you will just search Google for a while. I found a 12' for $ 110.00. for one I had, last year. two people can install it, easily.

RE: What PU to Buy

I think you should look at the weight of a 30'trailer you like,along with the tongue weight. Then decide what truck/engine combination, you are going to need to handle it. Do not allow a TT salesperson, or a truck sales person make your decision for you. Please do the research, and post questions here.

WFCO 8735 Converter door

My converter door keeps popping open. Any jar at all and it opens. Has a pin on the door that goes into a spring latch. This is a fairly new unit with little use. so I do not think it is worn out. Has anyone ever tightened the latch springs up? I have emailed WFCO, but know response, as of now. Thanks Jim

RE: They are gonna total my baby, :(

The replacement metal is not really expensive, but shipping and installation is. I damaged the back corner of one I had, and was looking at replacing it myself. Damage estimate was $6,000, but replacement cost was about $2300.00, plus labor for me. I ended up trading for a 5th wheel, and the dealer sold it as is, 3 days later.

RE: How to Run TV from 12 Volt Receptacle in Trailer???

I am by no means an expert. But one thing I would do is look on the back of the TV and see how many watts it pulls. I went through this once when I was thinking of a coffee maker in the cab. Needed 1200 watts for coffee maker. I am sure you can do it, but you may need a big inverter. You might consider a 12V TV.

RE: Thor Wanderer Glide Lite - Furnace/Hot Water Heater q's?

When I was having to clean the terminals. This is what was happening. Thermostat on, Heater tried to light with a little puff, then would click again in a few minutes, and try to light again. Cleaning the terminals, would always allow it to light and stay lit. FYI

W/D Hitch ove load

I have a Husky 500/5000 # W/D Hitch. It was fine with my old trailer, but we have purchased a slightly larger trailer and my tounge weight is going to be 40 to 50# over the 500# rating. Am I in bad trouble? Thanks to all. Jim

RE: I guess 80 mph is the new 65 mph

I have just perused all 10 pages of this topic, and found a lot of valid statements. One of the things I have always been against, is the raising of Interstate speed limits. A 75MPH speed limit, means that most vehicles are doing 85+mph.Increasing to 80+ means, well you do the math. Another thing I wonder about on this forum, is the age of the drivers. I for one do 60 to 65 mph any more on the Interstates, in my car. I used to be one of the 75/80+ drivers when I traveled in my job. I am now 77 years old, in good health, so I still pull a TT, but at no more than 60/65 mph. Just my .02

RE: Thor Wanderer Glide Lite - Furnace/Hot Water Heater q's?

I had an Attwood and when it would not light on gas, I had to clean all the electrical terminals on the heater, on the outside. There was a sticker, that said to do this before replacing the circuit board. Just my .02
