RE: Found a mouse nest! GRRR!

For Mice,We have had good luck with Irish Spring soap. I read about it on the fiver forum. Open box and placed around any where they might enter. Under the sinks, water line entry's etc. It has worked for us any way.

RE: Trailer lights have me baffled?????

When something crazy happens to me on 12v, the first thing I do is check the grounds.

RE: How do dealers deal with this? (flooding issues inside)

Many times, new inventory is on a floor plan from the manufacturer or a bank. Insurance is required. I hope they have insurance for the customer units.

RE: No power dry camping

I had the same problem, when I first got my R-Vision. There was a circuit breaker underneath the front in the 12v hot line. I also found a Key switch in the front LH compartment.

RE: Real Deal Tires, Hickory, North Carolina

Discount Tire Stores usually stock them,or try Discount Tire Direct. They will not be as cheap as the above Company. However their prices include freight. I did not compare everything.

RE: Totally Destroyed My Awning Today

I would get an estimate from the dealer to install a new awning. Then check online. You can get one online a lot cheaper, and install yourself. Plug the holes and redrill as mentioned above. two or three people can put up a new awning easily and fast. That is if you want a new awning.

RE: Kitchen Fuse Blows

Welcome to the forum. I am sorry I can't help, but I would just start checking the wires for a short. They are probably powered by the same hot lead. It has to be between the switch and light or fan, does it not? Happy Hunting.

RE: What is inside those walls?

I thought of using VHB for mine, if I do it, but i am thinking that for the tape to work and hold, that I would need to remove the wallpaper under the mounting area.

RE: Fried Eggs in Bread

My wife made this dish one time...... I asked her where the rest of the toast was?...... She told me that part doesn't get used...... so I said..... great I get a half of a slice of toast and an egg for breakfast? the next time she made eggs and toast I got an egg over easy on top of a whole slice of toast.... MUCH better! lol Bounder if my husband said that to me after I made his breakfast he'd be making it himself after that! My wife would do the same.

RE: Good TV truck brakes

Great experience, as you will probably never do it again. Don't ask me how I know.

RE: Rv showers

We loved the glass in our fiver, but now have a curtain, that we have not used yet.

RE: Dealer/Brand bashing gets old quick!!

A good sales person will stress the advantages of his product over the competition but not disparage the competition. X2 X3 One thing I have found, is that there is some good in all of them, and some bad in all of them.

RE: Too many miles?

Most ST trailer tires are limited to 65 mph, so I found it hard to average over 50mph. I could usually make 400 miles the first day, but after that, around 300. Be safe and enjoy the scenery. I have done over 500 the first day, but I was tired.

RE: Help requested for first time rv trailer buyer

I towed my 2600# trailer 165 miles, without brakes, with an F150. I took it easy, was on 55 mph roads and I stayed under that. The truck was stopping everything very well. I did however have a receiver hitch. Just keep your distance and take it EASY. The trailer is in my Sig. I know a lot of our friends are going to disagree with me, but if you are on the road,and your trailer brakes quit, are you going to stop there, or tow on to a repair shop?

RE: repacked bearings and now brakes seem weak

I actually blew the drums and the brake areas with my electric leaf blower to get the dust off. I stood back and did not breath in the dust. I then cleaned the brake shoes, magnet, and inside the drum with brake cleaner. I figured this was okay since it is brake cleaner. Once the bearings were cleaned and repacked with fresh grease, I put it all back togeter. For each wheel, before I lowered the wheel down, I spun it by hand and had my son hit the brake to make sure the brake was working. However I did not adjust the brakes since they were working fine before the repacking. I guess I'll try adjusting them as mentioned. It just puzzles me that they got weaker. If your able to easily pull the drums then the brakes are adjusted too loose. Tighten down the adjuster until you cannot turn the wheel - this centers the brake shoes. Now back it off a few clicks and give the wheel a spin. It should turn roughly 3/4 to 1 full turn before stopping (I know this procedure sounds subjective but it's really pretty accurate no matter who is doing it). The brake should drag all the way around and may seem kinda tight but it wont be. After pulling the trailer a ways, stop and feel the hub. It should be warm but not hot. The biggest mistake people make is not adjusting the brakes tight enough. Scott X2 Scott!!!

RE: Do you wax your trailer?

We bought our little fellow in Nov. last year. I have been wanting to get some warm weather for a few days in a row, so I can clean the roof, wash and wax the trailer. I just like it looking good.

RE: And you thought your parking spot was tough

I had the same problem. I put a switch on my F250 7.3, that I had, to allow me to use 4X2 Low range. Sold the fiver and the truck. Don't have the problem now.
