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

RE: Winegard Wingman

The base has stops built into it so you can't rotate it past 360 deg. You could always unscrew the base and reposition it so that the antenna will lay in the cradle at an angle with the wingman attached. I've seen a few antennas mounted like that! Good luck! Went to the storage yard today, and that would work. If I lower it just outside the travel guides, I would have clearance. I don't believe there is clearance enough for the " Jack" I think I'll just live with it the way it is, for a while, and see how much I will actually need it. Thanks everyone for the help. Jim

RE: Winegard Wingman

I just recieved an email from Winegard support. I had asked if I could reverse the head on the mount. Their answer was no, and all I could do was relocate the whole antenna. If I can lower the mast at an angle,I would have clearance, but would the antenna have a tendency to fly, going down the road? I am now researching all of the suggestions, and will get back. Thanks everyone. 2nd email to Winegard: After replying, I had another thought. Can I lower it in the 2:o'clock position, instead of the 12:o'clock position? Reply: jim Wilson Jim, It likely wouldn't lock in the travel position if you lower it this way. Winegard Technical Service 800-788-4417 www.winegard.com

Winegard Wingman

I would like to install a Wingman on my antenna,butI have a clearance problem. The antenna folds down right beside the Bath roof vent, and I have a cover over that. There appears to be ample room to lay it down on an angle, and it would be between the bath vent and the skylight. How hard is it to change the mount to reflect this angle on the inside.

RE: I70 west out of Denver

We fretted a few years ago, about west out of Denver. Like you, was pulling a 5ver with a diesel. Go for it man, you will love the trip. Beautiful town at the bottom, Silverthorne , I think There is a Campground along the creek just out side Gypsum, and it was nice,but full of Mosquito's

RE: Selling Trailer

I put my 5ver on Craigslist and sold it very quickly. But you may get some of those funky phone calls.
