RE: Samsung Residential Fridge Ice Maker Doesn’t Work?

Some do have ice maker problems. However, I found a second water valve behind the drawers to the left of the stove. I didn't check your floorplan so don't know what you've got.

RE: Trailer has sat awhile, should I be scared about my tires?

Hmmm. So you all are saying I should have replaced my flatbed trailer tires before they were 13 years old? I finally did because the 2 that sat facing south when parked developed some small sidewall cracks...... Nope, recall I said, "some folks report getting many more years out of theirs." Back to the Op's concern, he's afraid of his tires after having sat for a long while, and since tires are an oft-debated subject, I offer the following: who the really hell knows? Seriously, there are so many variables with ST tires: -cheap Chinese -lack of good American-made ST -RV mfgrs. putting barely specced cheap Chinese tires on their rigs -age -wear -use or lack of use, including poor maintenance -road hazards, and so on. So OP, after having read everyone's opinions, if you still feel discomfort, then replace them. If you're willing to take a chance, go for it. If you decide to go with another ST tire, consider your wheel limits and RV weight, and buy what's currently but anecdotally believed to be the best tires for your requirements. If you go with the LT believers, again buy a tire that meets your weight requirements.

RE: Trailer has sat awhile, should I be scared about my tires?

Most ST tires age out after three years. I recall one mfgr. even stating that in their literature. My experience after going into the fourth year was two blowouts, at which point I bought new tires. Some folks have reported getting many more years out of theirs. After having bought into Sailuns, which are ST tires, I'm wondering if the three year caution applies. Same goes for the new GY Endurance tires. I know almost for certain the Trailer Kings I removed were very flimsy and probably would not have gone even three years.

RE: Level-Up leveling jacks

Sounds like the orig. 40a breaker is the problem. You can search here for a lot of posts. Solve by replacing the breaker with an 80a. Think Lippert has a bulletin on their website.

RE: Portable generator recommendations

Had a Honda 3000i Handy that wasn't strong enough for my 15k AC. Got a Champion 3400 and I've been impressed so far, and it was very inexpensive, too.

RE: Truck Tires

I can't speak to 20" tires, and perhaps there's a difference, but my experience with both car and truck tires up to 18" is, the few times I've chosen other than Michelins, I have been very disappointed with getting more than 30,000 miles. My most recent set of Mich truck tires went over 60,000 miles. However, and it's a big however, I had a RR blowout while pulling my FW last summer. I don't know if it was caused by a road hazard, age, or miles. It was the first Mich blowout I've ever had. Regardless, I still went out and replaced the whole set with more Michelins.

RE: Buying our first Fifth Wheel

If you have cash or a guaranteed loan from other than the dealer, start at 30% off MSRP, and settle for no less than 25% off.

RE: How to clean water stains on ceiling fabric

If the liner is the rug-looking fabric, spray an oxyclean/hot water mix on the ceiling, then use a carpet cleaner extractor wand to suck out the liquid.

RE: Has the extreme cold weather affected you?

Yes, it has. I had to wear socks with my flipflops, and I've worn long pants three days in a row, gasp!

RE: Maxxis tire pressure question

Run max psi unless you can find a Maxxis load rating chart that indicates you can run less based on yourweights.

RE: DW says we should hav gone south!

This is our fourth FL winter since moving here, and is the coldest overall by far. I had to put socks on with my flipflops, and I have worn jeans twice, and I'm having difficulty finding good fishing days because of the temps and/or high winds. I guess all this climate change is going to force me to move further south.

RE: Moving to the dark side! LOL

A boat always makes a hole in the water into which you put all your money, regardless of the body of water.

RE: Crazy Question?

If you're handy, probably. I once removed two twins from a C and put in a queen. Took a bit of cabinetry skills.

RE: Needing some advice on a situation with our 5er

I went thru similar with a new 2014 Wildcat. The factory agreed to bring it back to the factory for repairs. We traded it in instead. You gotta stay on top of them. I have to say I found FR more customer friendly than Keystone.

RE: .

Don't get too excited. This cold weather was early. Plenty of time for another week of winter.

RE: Cleanup of 5th wheel accident in California

Some of you folks are just simply......amusing. There's no way any of us can determine from the video what was the proximate cause of the accident.

RE: Cleanup of 5th wheel accident in California

The tow co. operators need to watch Higheay Thru Hell to get ideas from Jamie Davis.

RE: Cleanup of 5th wheel accident in California

The only interesting post......5th wheel hitch......Otherwise...all garbage posts are here!!!Driver said he couldn't stop "in time"......My post is about warning drivers of a light change. Tell me why that's garbage. Perhaps because someone peed in RinconVTR's Wheaties this morning?

RE: Cleanup of 5th wheel accident in California

T bone collision on the pickup - rig jacknifed- trailer runs over pickup and flops it when flimsy rv hitch lets go...... The hitch looked fine. What let go was the mounting rails the hitch attached to. I wonder if any type of mountings would have survived. I'm more surprised the truck took a worse beating than the FW, especially with all the stories about their supposed lousy frames.

RE: Tire Validation thoughts.

Some years ago I went to G rated tires. I bought cast aluminum wheels for the 110 PSI rated tires. Last year I had a blow out on one...... If you don't mind, what brand G-rated tire blew out, and Was it a defect or road hazard issue?
