RE: OutdoorsRV Thread

What I would really like is 4 jacks that could somewhat level the TT. I might do your reinforcement mod but will use aluminum in place of steel. Almost looks like you could make new stronger arms and I have thought of that also. Seems Lippert makes the poorest components for these TT's. At this level I would pay a few hundred more for better quality. After the reinforcement mod it would be interesting to see just how strong they are and what would be their next weak area.

RE: RV Accident US 131 in Michigan

If he was really speeding that TT would be a pile of trash off the road. My guess,,, he swerved for some reason and the short wheelbase ate his lunch. Perhaps he hit his brakes and the TT brakes did not react for some reason, same end result.

RE: Turn off propane at gas stations - DO YOU?

the gas fumes have to get inside the compartment where the flame is. They have to do it in a concentration that will cause the flame to ignite the air. Under normal fueling conditions that is unlikely. But if there is an accident,hose rupture, gas sprayed on the side of the TT, or up in the air. Well, then we have a problem and there will be some hard questions asked. My answer is

RE: Honda EU3000iS vs Yamaha EF3000iSEB?

I bought my Honda E3000is back in 02. Just change oil and air filter. 1 new battery for the electric start. No issues, always runs. I think I paid about 1800 for it back then. I have not found a better gen yet.

RE: renting travel trailer for a week......things i should know

Unless you are getting a deal on the rental, by the time you add it all up you are very close to the cost of a hotel and might even be more than a cabin or yurt at a campground. My one time renting was not good. If I did not own a TT I would not rent one. But that's JMHO.

RE: So Cal to LaGrande Oregon

I usually try to avoid the grades but this 2014 CTD just flattens them out.

I don't care about nothing out there, just want smooth and quick.

So Cal to LaGrande Oregon

Headed for the OutdoorsRV rally in La Grande Oregon. Just wondering what the best route would be. Thinking of heading up to Bishop, then Winnemucca, then on up to La Grande. Any one know what the highway is like from Bishop on up? Towing a 30 ft TT. Routes to avoid? Looks like miles and miles of nothing out there.

RE: Cheap RV camp ground in Southern CA

If I could only camp in So Cal I would sell it all.

RE: Adjusting brakes

I just got done adjusting mine. Used a floor jack under the spring U-bolts. They did require some adjustment. I hope that helps as there is no way they would lock up no matter what I did. next time I will hook up to the truck and use a ramp to raise each tire off the ground.

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.
