RE: What is with manufacturs and not wanting to give up info

Kind of upset right now both at the dealership and the manufacturer. We just purchased a brand new 2017 Sierra 377Flik. Front living Room. We ordered it back in June and it came in mid August and completed walk through and everything paperwork, bank stuff by the end of August. We were looking for something with an outside kitchen kinda thing. We started our search back in January. We looked at several makes and brands. Then we drove around and spoke to dofferent dealers to see what we could get and emailed a lot of manufacturing companies that had a floor plan we liked about our options for the overall trailer. We could pretty much get everything we wanted except the outside kitchen with pretty much every brand we and style we liked. Yes we could get outside kitchen with several brands but their reviews and ones we looked at didn't like them. So we ordered our trailer and today get an email from the manufacturer showing a brand new design of our trailer with a rear slidout having an outside kitchen. So upset right now. Wife is mad because when we spoke to them dealer and manufacturer neither said anything about this. Yes we know months ago but they had to have some idea on the manufacturer end. Ok rant over. Thanks. You ordered it and were happy with your choice and glad to get it!Just like getting married and the bridesmaid turns out better looking.Enjoy it and get it next time,the outdoor kitchen that is.

RE: TPO roof cleaning

I washed mine about 4 weeks ago and used Rubber Roof cleaner from my local RV parts store (dealer). I am one of those fussy-duddies that believes in using the product that is made for a specific function. Costs a bit more? Yes, but then there is no threat of using a product that may, or could, over time, cause the roof to deteriorate. The last time I washed was last Fall. Although the roof did not look dirty, when I began washing, the dirt rolled off. Amazing. It came nice and clean again. I then followed up with the Rubber Roof Conditiner. Now ... I was up on the roof barefoot (shoes were too slippery). Before using the conditioner, the roof had a rough texture to it. I didn't think too much about it. But after the conditioner was put down and dried and I walked on it, I was amazed how different the rubber felt. It was smooth and soft again. (and slick). You can use what you may, each one of us has the freedom to use what we think is best. But in my opinion, the product made for the job is the one that works. I really saw the difference after applying the conditioner. deleted as duplicate

RE: Loose Shackle Bolt From Factory??? *PICS*

This would be the time to do your research on suspensions.Yes they are lock nuts and have a correct amount of tension.No you don't want flex in the bushings and U bolts are tightened a certain amount and method also, as the stretch of the bolts etc. all becomes involved.Not all as simple as it looks for sure.Nothing you can't do if you know what to do.Have fun.Be careful what experts you listen too.

RE: Need help with dutchmen/keystone

I think your dealer should ask the factory service department how to repair it.Dealer takes money and hasn't got a clue how to service and deal with factory,again and again we hear this situation,mention lawyers that always helps when you threaten people.Good luck.

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

Not a chance.I am 75 wife 79 and we are planning cross country trip next summer pulling a 28' trailer.Age is just a number,health is the critical determiner.i am a better driver now then years ago,I have more respect and more patience for less experienced drivers,sorry to say this but the young ladies are by far the worst.cell phones are a very everyday danger.

RE: towing capacity

I am new to travel trailer towing and need to learn about towing capacity. I am looking at a travel trailer that has an empty weight of 5,700 and a Gross Weight of 8,700. My 2016 Ram pickup is a 4x4 5.7 Hemi with a 3.21 ratio rear end. it has a maximum stated towing capacity of 8,100 lbs. Will my Ram pickup be adequate to pull this trailer as long as I keep the real weight of the trailer at 8,010 lbs. or below? What else should I be thinking about here? I tow a TT weighing 6000 lbs. loaded with a 2012 ram 1500 5.7 and 3.92 gearing 4x4 with towing package.Trailer is 28' long Jayco whitehawk with the wide spread tandem axles.I use a WD hitch and would never pull anything much heavier.I have rv'd for over 50 years from tents to Class A's so have a fair bit of experience towing.You need to know that coil springs and P tires which you probably have are not your friends towing.

RE: Frame Failure

The end result is that it has to get repaired and who pays.Sad situation,only guy out is usually the customer.Hate it,should never get to that.

RE: Frame Failure

Same thing can/does happen to any different manufacturers products given that the same company makes most of the trailer frames. I would guess you had jack knived the trailer quite a bit parking it on a high traction surface. As noted 2x2 1/8" wall tubes install from hanger to hanger across the rig and all three hanger location is the answer to preventing it again after getting the hanger back in place. Chris http://i.imgur.com/00IPk4wl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/XqFlINjl.jpg Chris did you flip your axles/looks like there is a reverse axle camber.How does the shock mounted like that work out?That frame work might be something the op could use,did you do it yourself?

RE: Frame Failure

Look at the axle and u bolts.Better prepare a reply for "severe jack knifing is the cause".How is the tire wear?The tire looks to be touching also or very close to it,probably hit you with overloading comments too.

RE: How do I not blow up my city water connection check valve?

Well if you are worried about that then what about your black tank flush?

RE: Answered: How Much Does a Class A DP Cost?

I always find it interesting when people comment that they paid cash.You have now lost any investment income from that cash spent on a depreciating investment,so the depreciation and investment loss must be added to get a true picture of actual costs.RV costs are about the same as computer costs only worse just stand around a big hole and keep throwing money in until it hurts enough to stop.We all have our ways of rationalizing our fun.Mine is the smell of a campfire.lol.

RE: Crippling insurance costs

is this out of country health insurance? yes, but the other 8 months you get "free" health care. bumpyNice if it was free.lol.as everyone knows nothing is free.It is paid out of taxes and almost all Canadians carry some supplementary health and travel insurance.Health care in Canada is a provincial jurisdiction,some provinces charge extra taxes to cover it one does not.

RE: RV Quality

Every time I point out an issue, many come right back defending the junk. As long as folks blame the user instead of the manufacturer nothing will change. It would be best if you look at a new RV as a pile of materials that needs assembly, you will have the correct outlook. So true and always know you paid either too much or someone paid less.This after rv'ing for over 50 years.But guess what we upgraded our truck and travel trailer this spring.As a friend of mine used to say"Who makes the best junk these days".Just have as much fun as you can afford.

RE: Updated- end of thread,something in the black tank.

Well the next problem of not getting it out is jamming the valve open,it needs to come out as it will eventually clog and collect debris.If you can't hook it can you get at the tank?Can you get at the tank to move it around with a heavy magnet against the bottom to help align it?
