RE: How long should the break-away brake cable be?

Has anyone here ever used the breakaway safety device? How was it set and what was the result? I have never used mine and don't know of anyone that has. I have seen piles of what was a TT by the side of the road.

RE: homakes the best WDS & why do you think so?

Nothing I own is the best. My old round bar e-z lift with friction sway device has been OK for 10 years now. I would like to get the Blu Ox Sway Pro if it actually does control sway. If it does, I'll say it is the cleanest and easiest hitch out there.

RE: Rear axle ratios and impact on towing

I think it all boils down to how many feet forward the vehicle moves forward with a given number of engine revolutions.

RE: Disabled Travel Trailer on a Flatbed?

I had that exact same thing happen to me. AAA sent out a flatbed that tilted to pick up the TT. The guy was going to have me unhook and he would just winch it up. He said the power jack might bend. MIGHT??? So, I told him to get his trailer into position and I backed the TT onto his flatbed. I used 4x4 low range to push it up that trailer and could not have done it without 4x4 low range. he said he had never seen anyone do that before. I had about 3 inches on each side of his trailer. So find someone with a good diesel 4x4 that knows how to back up. It was a NEVER LUBE bearing on 3500 pound axles.

RE: Lance frames

I do not own now and never have owned a Lance. But if I wanted to go lighter and they had the floorplan I liked, they would be on my short list. Where is Wood Glue on this one?

RE: Rear axle ratios and impact on towing

My son just bought anew Ram 1500 with 3.92 gears and the hemi. Tow rating is 10K+. It is just a rocket. 70mph = just a shade under 2000rpm. My new Ram 2500 diesel is rated to tow 17,000 and with the 6 speed and 800 foot pounds of torque it will tow my 7000 pound TT easy. 3.42 gears puts 70mph at 1500 rpms.

RE: best tow vehicle

I picked up my 2014 Ram 2500 CCSB Laramie 4x4 today. Not going to try to convince anyone that it's a great truck, but it is.

RE: Diesel MPG and fuel additives

In my 03 I put lots a different things in the fuel. Got more smoke and power. I just picked up my 14 and I will put nothing in the fuel tank but fuel. Too many sensors and stuff to go wrong. Now I have more power than I know what to do with.

RE: NON Lippert frame TT

The difference is that nothing in the trailer will put you beside the road calling a big flatbed tow. One bearing will.

RE: First Tow with the 6.4 Hemi 2500

I get my '14 Ram 2500 next week. My TT is 7K empty. Just wondering how the coil springs rear will do with towing. This will be my last diesel as I will be scaling down in the years to come, just wanted to go out big. That class 5 reciever hitch 2 1/2 inch is making me wonder to sleeve or new shank.

RE: Wow...CW's service

I look at CW as the Wallmart of the camping industry.

RE: Arctic Fox vs Lance

I am sure you have been in both of them. Sit in them for a while and think where all the stuff will go, TV location and quality of fit and finish. Then think of being in it for two days to wait out a storm. Look at the corners and edges for finish. A lighter, lower TT can be easier to tow long distance and less affected by wind.

RE: NON Lippert frame TT

If you don't like Lippert, good luck. Besides the frames they make, or own the company, many other things that make up a TT. Windows, doors, jacks, electronics.

RE: WD Hitch; 2" vs. 2.5" receiver; Ford 250 issue

If you're going with that big a truck and going full time, I would look at 5th's for sure. More room, very nice inside. Shorter overall length and less sway I am told. Some even have gens on them. They cost more new but there are many great used ones out there.

RE: WD Hitch; 2" vs. 2.5" receiver; Ford 250 issue

I called up Blue ox and they have a 2 1/2 inch shank but it's not shown on line yet. BTW, my Ram 2500 diesel is rated to tow 17,000.

RE: Dicor rubber roof Protectant-Is it waste on EPDM roof?

The last TT I had, had a EDPM roof> I spent way to much time on it. With my new 2014 I will hose off and clean once in a while. In about 12 years I might coat it with liquid rubber roof if I still have the TT. Keeping the TT waxed will help with the black streaks.

RE: Adjusting a WD hitch for the best ride

getting a new Ram 2500 next week so I start all over setting up a hitch. Ne one will have coils in the rear and a class 5 hitch, 2 1/2 inch receiver. It should ride and pull much better.

RE: Adjusting a WD hitch for the best ride

There is a good possibility I will be getting a new Ram 2500 rated to tow 17K. Coil springs in the rear. It won't really feel 750TW so I will be at square 1 adjusting all over again. What fun.

RE: Jensen DVD/Radio combo

If you wanted to put in a house 120V unit you could run an inverter, 12V DC to 120V AC to power it. It probably would not take much more power than the Jensen. I'll take a look at mine.
