RE: Suspension Issue?

Suspension Issue?

Not sure if I have a problem or not. I hope to start examining a little closer soon. Its pouring rain here today and for a couple of days. I have the Equa-Flex suspension system on my Vengeance. Triple-axle and one year old. I have noticed the past few trips when we leave the house, the suspension creaks and moans like crazy. Makes me think I've gone back to the Equalizer WDH hitch but this is a fifth wheel. At the end of my driveway, I have to make a sharp turn about 70 degrees and it has a dip. So the suspension gets tested right off the start. But this weekend, we went to a local state park. The site we had required another test. A hard turn not quite 90 degrees but backing downhill as well. So as I get the Vengeance into the site but the truck is still in the road, a large part of the weight of the camper is on the passenger side wheels; especially the rear. I start to straighten up the truck but as I'm backing, the rear wheel is making a popping noise. I get out and everything seems fine and there is no extra heat coming from the wheel. The suspension is really compressed though. But that's because so much weight is toward the rear corner of the camper. I slowly continue to back up and it finally levels out and everything seems fine. Nothing looks out of place. Today we come home and it does great. The trip is only a little over 30 miles one way but just in case, I get out before hitting the interstate to check the wheels. Again, all looks well and no unusual heat coming from any wheel. The camper has just over 3300 miles plus whatever miles were from Indiana to the dealership in Maryland. Has anyone had any issues like this? My concern is something unseen that could bite me traveling down the highway. My only two thoughts are 1. its normal or 2. maybe the Equa-Flex bushings are already worn out and that's what happens when they get that way. I've been wanting to replace the bushings and use the greaseable bolts but I did think these bushings would go a little longer than the mileage I have right now.

RE: Ok, Time to Come Clean and Admit Our Screw-Ups

Our first TT well over ten years ago. I was an extreme newbie. Camping at a state park and a much better spot opened up. I immediately hooked up just the hitch and proceeded to move the Puma. Left the slide out and everything! At least I unhooked power and water. Only real Oops was the bedroom TV fell off the shelf. These were the days before flat screens so it was busted for sure. Can you imagine someone pulling their TT through a campground with the slide out? Jackleg for sure.

RE: Just my opinion

Since 2004, we've had five campers and financed everyone. Wouldn't trade it for the world. Its our thing so Dave Ramsey can just cut me some slack on this one.

RE: Front Cap LED Lights

I can understand that (ahem) some owners are proud of their bright LED lights, but why on earth do they leave them on ALL NIGHT??? I see leave mine on as a courtesy to people who like to walk their dog at night. It helps them see better.

He's probably one of those guys who thinks if this is the first time you've spoken to him, you should just mind your own business.

I-95 Easter Weekend

We had a funeral to attend today in Lumberton. So drove from the Raleigh area down I-40 to I-95 to Lumberton. Good grief almighty! I have never seen I-95 so bad. Today was Ct., Mass., and New Jersey day I guess. Headed south and coming back up north, that's about all the license plates we saw. I guess tomorrow will be mostly Va. and NC people leaving and coming home. I saw a TON of RVs heading north and south. The thought of driving in that mess drives me crazy. For those camping this weekend, just be careful. Its a madhouse out there! :B

RE: Front Cap LED Lights

The bright blue LED lights, on the other hand, are blinding. That's what I have. :B

Sounds like you were due for a wallet flush, too.

Does that Ram have the Aisin trans?

RE: Front Cap LED Lights

I always thought the old Inferno logos were really cool. I've done it before but not often. I do it if I think a little security lighting is a good idea. But no matter how many are turned on, they're not bright enough to keep us awake and they're definitely not so bright, it creates a problem when out taking a walk.

RE: Grand Design Tire Options

My G614s were $325/tire as an option with my dealership. They kept the original tires which covered the price of installation. Not an outstanding deal but they were four hours away and I didn't feel like going through the added hassle of doing it later on.

RE: What is the dumbest things about your fifth wheel?

I'm one of the minorities that don't really care what can and cannot be accessed with the slides open. Would it be nice to access everything? Of course it would, but I'm basing my desicision on when it's open not closed. Dan I'm the same way. I can get to my bathroom with the slides closed and that's plenty for me. Heck, we usually stop at Chik-fil-a anyway while on the road.

RE: Grand Design Tire Options

We just brought home a Momentum 397th. They come with Westlake tires but the G614 are an $3000 option. They give you no credit for those if you choose the option. I got a better deal from my Big O for the G614 including the extended warranty. Also have the new Westlake tires for sale or spares. Need to change my sig some day! I'd buy your Westlakes in a heartbeat if you were closer. I'm always looking craigslist for RV take-offs to put on my landscape trailers. I have a set of Westlakes on one right now and they've been great.

Grand Design Tire Options

A friend has a GD 388. They're already considering a trade to a new 395. He's been looking online at Tennessee RV. I notice in their specs that all their Momentums seem to have G614 tires. Does anyone know if this is a new GD standard, an option, or just something Tennessee RV does?

RE: WDH angle?

When we had our Work & Play, I had to add the full 8 washers to our Equalizer to get it set up correctly. 8 is the max. recommended. After that, it worked perfectly. LOTS of tension but outstanding WD and sway control.
