RE: New 5th Wheel.... Worried

I think you'll be happier with the new.

RE: FYI Repairs

You're not alone. In fact, it appears you're probably better off than most.

RE: Question for travel trailer tire experts

The rear axle is the swing axle, meaning the pivot point for turns is the front axle. Thus there is more wear on the rear because those tires are being dragged around the pivot point. Next time you stop somewhere it is safe to do so, turn your whole rig in one direction then look at the rear tires, they will be deflected a little in the opposite direction of the turn. This ^ is usually the case.

RE: tire pressures

Your PSI should be adjusted to the tire mfgrs. load range table. You can't know for sure without knowing the weight on each axle.

RE: Would you run these tires?

Definately starting starting to dry rot. Some folks barely get three years out of STs so you be the judge.

RE: Infrared Thermometer

I look for the difference between tires/hubs. If three are within a few degrees of each other and one is 50 degrees hotter, I've got a potential problem.

RE: Key West

While you wouldn't want to drive down Duval Street in the city of KW with a trailer or Class A, getting to Boyds or Bluewater Key is not an issue. You might even be able to get into one of the state parks at that time of year (Bahia Honda, Long Key, John Pennekamp).

RE: Is a slider hitch worth the extra money?

It's only worth it when you need it. I thought my SB signature truck plus the rounded front of our new FW would not require a slider; it does.

RE: Considering switching to a 5'er, hitch question.

Doubt you'd need a slider and no, hitches are usually sent out to a trailer expert. Usually one in even some small towns. Only took me 1-1/2 hours to install the rails in signature truck and I'd never done one before. Installer wanted to charge me three hours labor!

RE: Tire Load range Mixing??

Es on one axle and Ds on the other; no problem.

RE: What to do with the cats

If she's using the B to move around while she's camping then she wouldn't be able to leave the cats in the B while parked somewhere in a hot area w/o running the genset and AC.

RE: 5th Wheel Turning with Shortbed

You will have more than a bumper pull. Just how much is anyone's guess. It will vary based on trailer front cap design, location of hitch relative to front cap, location of ball relative to cab, etc. Only way of knowing for sure is to hook up and have someone watch and warn before it hits the cab. This.

RE: Correct hitch to trailer ratings?

Yep, if you're reasonably sure you'll be over 16k lbs., then yes, you should go up one size.

RE: Going from 34ft to 39ft - Questions

Went from a 30' to 38' FW recently. Had to buy a bigger TV but no real difference in towing. I plan ahead a bit more for sharp turns or refueling stops. I have not been able to get a couple of state park reservations because their sites were too short.

RE: How much sewer hose?

Normally 20' will do it, but I've had to use our 10' extension a few times.

RE: 12v or 2 6v batteries?

Sixes are superior in every way except price. Since you already have one 12v, I suggest you buy one similar 12v and use them till they fail, then upgrade to 6v.

RE: Another dog related question

I haven't experienced more than $15 per animal, usually $10 or so.

RE: SuperGlide Upkeep Seems Major

I had a 12k on my 1/2 ton and it only needed a quick spray of white lithium grease (Pullrite had different lube requirements each version) on the glide tubes before a trip. There is a single bolt adjustment to take up slack that I only adjusted once in five years. Never covered it.
