RE: Replace Toilet with Composting for FT use

Search YouTube for "Gone with the Wynns" They are fans of composting and have a few videos on how they work.

RE: First tow with new diesel + ProPride 3P...hooray!

It's really nice dropping 1,000 lbs. on the hitch and the truck sags ZERO inches. Unbalanced trailers aside, the 3P is fantastic for crosswinds and passing trucks. You'll be grinning when going uphill with the diesel!

RE: New Propride

I had the same problem when my 3P was new. I would use the trailer brake controller in the truck to hold the trailer in place while I moved the truck forward a zillionth of an inch. After a few uncouplings, I no longer had the issue.

Never run out of propane again!

Well, I guess you can still run out, but you'd know about it ahead of time! ;) GasWatch

RE: Arrow vs. 3P: which one is better at distributing weight?

I ordered a Hensley, they shipped the wrong ball size. On my way to return it (I live in Michigan about an hour from both Hensley and ProPride), I stopped in at ProPride. I liked the product and they were about $700 less than Hensley at the time. I ended up buying the 3P and getting a refund for the Hensley. Sean of PP is absolutely unparalleled in customer service and support, too.

RE: diesel lanes

I love the truck lanes. I can fill my 40 gallon tank in just a couple of minutes!

RE: New Trailer Hitch

I really like my ProPride, the support is fantastic (also a local Michigan business). Both Hensley & PP offered a money back guarantee when I bought a couple of years ago (you may want to double check that).

RE: Standard for WD Hitches with Sway Control

With your trailer, I wouldn't hesitate suggesting a ProPride or Hensley hitch. I know they are expensive, but there's a lot of used ones on the market. If you'd prefer something from the factory, both sell refurbished models at a pretty good discount.

RE: Can someone point me in the direction for research please?

Not saying these were problems with the entire production of Thor, but here's a few things you can check for when shopping. My bunkend doors warped, so much they had 1.5" gaps at the top. Front storage compartment leaked the entire time I had it & started to cause delamination. Seal around entry door failed in first two years and the floor near the door rotted. Hidden leak in rear of camper ruined the bathroom floor. Fixed the bathroom floor and entry way for about $800. I sold it instead of replacing all three bunkends for $800/each. I really liked my hybrid. Had a great floorplan, could tow with a smaller vehicle, and had tons of storage. My particular unit just started dissolving on me so I had to get rid of it.

If it's hot outside, the A/C is on.

RE: Experience/Opinion of 6.4L Powerstroke

You may want to take a look at Powerstroke.org in the 6.4 forums for further feedback.

RE: Backup Camera on Travel Trailer

I tried using my iBall magnetic backup cam on the trailer's rear bumper once (trailer is 32' long and hitch is about 18' from where I had screen plugged into lighter socket in truck). The image is pretty darn fuzzy with lots of interference. I've seen some good reviews of this guy's setups (I have not purchased from him).

RE: Newbie question on mirrors

I had great luck with McKesh Mirrors on my Expedition. Found 'em on Craigslist for about $75 and sold 'em five years later for the same price. New, they are about $130. I didn't have the scratching problem that lanerd had. I always found it strange that the Expy, with its ability as a tow vehicle, doesn't have tow mirrors from the factory or aftermarket, just the add-on models.

RE: Diesel or Gas

A lot of this decision is how big & heavy the FW is. If you could post which model(s) you are considering, it will probably improve the advice you'll get.

RE: Sunset trail or kodiak?

We had a Kodiak 23TT for five years that we were pretty happy with (other than being a hybrid) and now have had a Sunset Trail 29SS for two years. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.
