Great weekend . also there are a few real nice campgrounds south on 81 in Virginia.. real nice area and not too far of a ride...

RE: New Truck, 5er now rides too high

Measure from the ground to the bottom of the frame .. At the rear of the trailer , and at the front of the trailer... AFTER YOU HOOK UP... What is the difference from the front to the rear? 1"-2"-3"-4" ?? ..... 1-2 I think your ok,,,, 3-4 I think you need to level it.. Ford Truck Guy - Why would you need to level it if it's not causing a clearance or towing issue? I'm not trying to be a smart alec, but I'd like to know the rationale for the numbers you show in your post. Depending on the amount of nose height , that could/ will cause extra stress on the rear axle and its components... Take a inferred thermometer and check it out...the weight is being shifted to the rear..in most cases its within its capacities..but like stated before , it's best to be closer to level.. I run about 2 " nose high..I also have independent suspension which helps..I still take my thermoset at every stop to check the tires , wheel , hubs, ect...

RE: LED awning lights how would you......

I ran my wire down the middle of the slide seal... I was not feeling good about drilling a hole in my side,,, I know myself , that would not have turned out well....there is only about 3 inches of wire showing up top...

RE: Help moving trailer

I just called the RV dealer back and asked again. The gentlemen I talked to lives 5 minutes from my house and said he will move it if I can't find a truck etc. He was very reasonable once I explained my situation and he remembers me from my initial purchase as well as all the parts etc. I have purchased from them. So it looks like I have a potential solution Thanks Everyone! Dave Glad to hear it is resolved Dave... Make sure you report back with the results!

RE: Help moving trailer

I am on the other side of the state , IF I was within an hour or 2 , I would do it... Like stated , try a local campground.. first ask the front desk if they know anyone...

RE: Slides and rain????

I do not wipe them either... The rubber squeegee seals do a real good job at getting most of the water off before the slide is over carpet. I also have a small drip catcher at the bottom corner of the slide built into the bottom track.

RE: Trade in or sale

If you want to pay wholesale price for the new trailer , they will only give you wholesale trade value... I am going through that right now,,, wholesale trade value is $16,000.00.. retail trade value is $27,000.. I want the best of both worlds , wholesale on new-retail trade on mine. :-) so I am trying to sell mine before ordering new...

RE: help with loss of acceleration

My last vehicle went into limp mode.. I took it to an auto parts store and had them put the scanner on it... Told me it was a sensor... They will check the code it threw... and then tell you which one it was

RE: Valve Stem Issue.....

So I'm upgrading to G rated tires and I ordered metal valve stems rated at 110psi. The problem is the rubber on the back of the stem wont go thru the valve hole on the wheel... I also have rubber valves with metal sleeve rated at 80psi that fits... The E rated tires that came on my 5er were rated at 80psi so I'm thinking my G rated tires at 80psi will be much better than the E rated at 80psi. I'm not really wanting to go even 100psi on these stems rated at 80psi. What do you think.... I do have some other metal stems on the way today but they will probably be the same rubber. They make a 100psi rubber stem but once again the base is too wide. I did check my wheels and they are rated at 110psi. I do not see a problem with airing them to 80 max... but that would lower their carrying capacity.. I would try to get the proper metal stem before lowering the pressure. Per the Goodyear site.. at 80 psi the max load is only 3042# versus the 3750 @ 110psi

RE: Broken Spring

I'm with ScottG on this.... For a nominal fee , you could have piece of mind knowing they are all new... Not worrying if the others will fail would get the best of me

RE: Looking for DEF in Florida Keys

Go to a Pilot or a Flying J Truck stop and buy it in bulk for under $3 a gallon. link Not so sure they will find any Truck Stops in the Keys ?? When I was there 2 years ago there were none. NAPA or ANY BRAND truck dealership will help you out...

RE: How do you wax the front cap of your Fifth Wheel?

I use 2 adjustable step ladders spread apart with an aluminum platform running between them. I place it on the higher rungs of the ladder to reach the upper parts , then use lower rungs for lower areas. It sure beats climbing and standing on a single ladder rung , at least for me it is..

RE: Looking for DEF in Florida Keys

You drive a Ram correct ?? try the local Ram dealer,,, or either brand will work.. I am sure there is a truck dealer of the big 3 close that will stock it

RE: Second AC Size

Our second ducted AC is a 13.5 ... Not sure it would make that big of a difference between the 13.5 and the 15K..?? At least to me it wouldn't .. as long as you have one of them , I think your better.. Agree with NC . . we really use ours when the Humidity gets up there and the nights get muggy... A lot of time , we just run the fan on the second one at night once the trailer is at temp.. Joe

RE: New Brakes for 2010 Montana

X2 on the axle tag.... Also check the drum , there is always a number stamped on it.. take that and call the Drum mfg.. ( Dexter ect..) and tell them the number on the drum , they will give you all the info needed.. After you have all that info , I like dealing with BOTH E-Trailer and Eastern Marine . . Remember when ordering the complete assembly that there is a right AND left side....
