RE: Selling Trailer

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

RE: Never Wet

Thanks everyone, I was just reading about some of it's uses, and it started my curious mind.

RE: Goodyear and/or Maxxis owners

I had a set of Maxxis E's on my fifth wheel. Found 1 with a broken belt on a trip and put the spare on. I had a terrible time finding someone to warrant it. The point is, Goodyears are very easy to find on the road,if you have a failure. Maxxis are not.

RE: Tighten you propane tank wing nut

A long shaft padlock completes the set...keeps the wingnut in place AND deters theft, at least temporarily. Speaking of which, I have a long cable lock which I use to lock the 2 tanks and the cylinder cover to the A-frame - deters theft AND if the big wing nut was to ever come off, the whole shebang is not going anywhere. :) X2 But my new trailer has different brand tanks, so I have to find a larger lock.

Never Wet

Has anyone researched using Never Wet,on rubber roofs. It seems like it would be a good idea, if it is compatible with the rubber.

RE: Covering skylights

I have used the foam board cut to fit. I glued a small piece to the bottom for a handle, for easy removal. Sand the edges to fit, and it helps stop shedding of the pebbles. Plain finish or aluminum, either works well.

RE: Upgrading tire rims

So having 14" wheels on torsion axles that have 2" of clearance between the tires, I'm kinda screwed on that upgrade huh. Not necessarily, Check out the Kumho 857 in an D rated. These are used on trucks in Europe.

RE: It would be funny if...

It is not just a Senior thing. See below. Are we the ones with dementia??!! DEMENTIA ARE WE THE ONES WITH DEMENTIA ARE WE THE ONES WHO ARE AGING?? ONE Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets. 'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter. 'You don't?' I replied. 'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply. 'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?' 'That's right.' So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets (Unbelievable but sadly true...) (Must have been the same one I asked for sweetener and she said they didn't have any, only Splenda and sugar.) TWO I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed. After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it. Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?' I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.' She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left. She had no clue to what had just happened. ( But the lady behind me had a big smirk on her face as I left) THREE A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.' (Keep shuddering!!) FOUR I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you need some help?' I asked. She replied, 'I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door un-locker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?' 'Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked. 'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered,handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk....' PLEASE just lay down before you hurt yourself !!! FIVE Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier', the secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies. Brunette, by the way!! SIX A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer......' Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to emergency right now!' Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid!!!! Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too. Don't laugh....it is all true... Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70! 01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you. 02.. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first. 03. No one expects you to run--anywhere. 04. People call at 9 PM and ask, "Did I wake you?" 05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac. 06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way. 07. Things you buy now won't wear out. 08. You can eat supper at 5 PM. 09. You can live without sex but not your glasses. 10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans. 11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge. 12.You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room. 13. You sing along with elevator music. 14. Your eyes won't get much worse. 15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off. 16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service. 17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either. 18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size. 19. You can't remember who sent you this list. 20. And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience. Forward this to everyone you can remember right now! Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night!

RE: Load e tire pressure

Check to be sure that your rims are rated for 80psi. Most likely only rated for 75 psi. I ran some E's at 70 psi for about 10,000 miles with no problems. I sold the unit with the tires still on it and in good shape.

RE: Hail damage insurance claim question

Pictures, pictures, pictures of the current damage. If it happens again, you will have documented earlier damage.

RE: Coleman grill modifications

I have a Weber Q120, with the optional cart stand. I can use it with the small bottles, or the 20# bottles that have a place under the cart. Nothing special to buy. There must be a regulator installed of course.

RE: Coleman grill modifications

What a bunch of BS. Why don't the just say they do not know. I run all my small Grills on a large tank. You just need a hose assembly. They are available at Walmart I think. Or here is one such unit. Weber 6501 Adapter Hose for Weber Q-Series and Gas Go-Anywhere Grills, 6-Feet on Amazon. Barney types faster than me.

RE: Moab- tips, suggestions?

We stayed at "Riverside Oasis" I think. North end of Moab on Colorado River. Close to entrance to Arches. Nice small campground.

RE: Travel Trailer Disaster Help

I bought a used class C a few years ago. Hooked up in Fl. Campground and found a small leak in a water line, seeping out and wetting the carpet. Bought all kinds of fittings and new hoses trying to stop it. Turned out a pressure regulator did the trick. Need less to say, I always use a regulator and a water filter. Just my .02

RE: So Confused

I have a 2012 3.7 and a R-Vision 189 that weighs empty around 2600 lbs. I towed it to Charleston S.C. and back. No W/D but I do have a anti sway bar. Had to play with the sway bar a bit, but all went well. We never got below 11 mpg and got as high as 14mpg. Our truck is 126" wheel base. I was used to pulling a fifth wheel with a 7.3 but I am very happy. Just my .02

RE: No A/C plugged in to 15A at home

I have a 13,500 Carrier, and it runs just fine on 20 amps. With nothing else running.

RE: Towing Capacity - Cargo Van

There is an Oasis report that the Ford dealers can access. It shows exactly how your truck was equipped, when built. But I am not sure how far back they can go.

RE: Roof damage

I thought EPDM was black on the underside. I pulled a roof vent frame to check the color of mine, on the bottom.
