RE: Transport refused trailer from factory?

I agree with midnightsadie , , , call the manufacturer with all your paperwork in hand.... Ask for the local sales rep for your area... They SHOULD get you their cell phone number . . Heck, I purchased my new fiver without talking to the local dealer.. I told the rep what I wanted, what I wanted to pay and told them to find a dealer that will do the deal.. You may be surprised as to what all a mfg rep can do.... IF THEY WANT TO that is..

RE: Pack bearings - by hand or by tool?

I just did mine a few weeks back... I used one of these- bearing packer I place the bearing inside it, step on it with my heal to push grease threw it.. The old grease comes out. Once I see new grease coming out, I remove and slop some extra around the exterior for good measure..Can't completely stop doing it b hand !! :B

RE: Can all 5th wheels double tow?

Considering upgrading in the next couple of years and trying to decide between a 5th wheel and tow a small trailer behind (ATV's/motorcycle, etc) or just to get a toyhauler. Are all 5's capable of doing this, or are there some particular brands or models that are better suited for this task that have a more robust frame, axle set-up, etc? What questions/info should I be seeking from the manufacturers? If I do choose a toyhauler, how do most people transport their toys to the play area if it's not immediately accessible to the campground, or if it's a vehicle than can't be legally driven on the roads? NOT ALL 5r's are equipped to tow a trailer.. Mine came with a receiver hitch that has a 300# tongue capacity, and a 3000# towing capacity.. Each manufacturer will be different, so some homework is in order..

RE: Do you check tire pressures every morning?

Old habits are hard to break. I use a tire thumper each morning before drive away when on the road daily or before drive away when the vehicles have been sitting for a day or so. Doesn't take but a couple of minutes. If I find a difference then I break out the pressure gage. This is what I do also.. IF I am taking a longer trip, I will check the pressure a few days in advance, and use the thumper daily at every stop.. Its the old Big Rig driver coming out in me...

RE: Bensalem Pa.

Anyone have any suggestions for a place to stay overnight around the Bensalem Pa area? Parx Casino no longer allows overnighting, and we will be going there for a show. I found a Wal-Mart nearby; anyone familiar with it? Can't find any campgrounds in the vicinity either. I work in Bensalem and would not stay in my RV anywhere close to Parx Casino... I do see a few big trucks that stay in the Wally parking lot, but not many RV’s..The closest campground is probably an hour or more away. Wonderful, that will make my wife feel warm and fuzzy inside! A few years back, I had my vehicle broken into while I was at the Outback Steakhouse across the street.. When talking to the Police, they stated that the crime in the area exploded the month that the casino opened.. I am not saying it is a bad area, it's not, there are just a lot of opportunistic criminals that are around and they take stuff because they figure there is money there.. As far as Paulsboro NJ, I keep forgetting about that as we don't spend time in that area. It will take you 45 minutes - 1 hour to make that trip. We pass Paulsboro on the way to CW in Bridgeport, NJ

RE: 5th wheel suspension problems

Any suggestions for beefing up my suspension? My 5th weiighs 17000lbs. I keep breaking the shakels holding my leaf springs. I fave two axles and I think adding a third would be monumental. Thanks I mentioned the wrong part. I am minus the part at the other end of the spring that is bolted to thr bracket attached to the frame. I must have hit a big pot hole and this part snapped off. All I have left is the bracket. On my unit this is a yellow square part. Take the entire system, from frame down out of the equation and add the MORryde IS... https://i.imgur.com/L7Sfg9Fl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/wvt6NXRl.jpg

RE: does it hurt a f250 gas motor to bumper pull 10,000 lbs?

I just meant extra strain. Like I'm not gonna blow up the motor pulling that. This will be a new 2018 f250 when purchased You will like that experience.. My BRO In Law pulls his 11K TT with his "15" f-250 with 6.2 and loves it...

RE: Surge Protector

What do you use? I'm looking into Progressive Industries EMS-PT50X Portable RV Surge Protector - 50 Amp ($335 on Amazon). How much difference is there between the expensive brands and the less expensive brands (Portable Surge Guard Protectors, 50 amp - $78)? Signed, electricity knowledge-deficient camper This is the one I decided on.. I just got it at the end of last season, so I only used it 1 time so far...

RE: Thoughts? Good, bad, or indifferent?

Count me in as not liking it... BUT - - You can cut it up and have matching picnic table and bench covers... Now that would be re purposing it in the RV world...

RE: Disk Brakes and suspension maintenance

Another Performnce Trailer Braking customer here.... Like you, DW was NOT sold on the money spent until our first trip out. We had a car pull out in front of us on a 2 lane and then she stopped in the lane.. dead stop... SO did we, With room to spare, where as with the old drum brakes, I am positive I would have hit her.. I got the head nod and smile... that told me everything I needed to know

RE: Is my thinking flawed on this subject??

A small tractor battery would work fine. At times I have used my portable jump start unit to power the macerator. instead of a tractor battery, I would suggest using a small jump starter jobby that I want to have along anyway. much handier than a liquid filled battery. that is what I used on my latest TT. bumpy That is what I decided on last night.... It could possibly serve 2 purposes... Thanks for all the responses......

RE: Is my thinking flawed on this subject??

Scott, The macerator has an in-line fuse before the alligator clips..It also came with a separate inline fuse holder and fuse. I was going to put that between the inverter as a double back up? Hard to describe what I'm thinking but if the clips are bare metal and side by side, I'm thinking the clips themselves would/could touch each other. Then the inline fuse would not come into play. Make sense or is totally different than I imagine? https://i.imgur.com/RC12AGPl.jpg This is what I was gonna use... For the reason that they can be mounted at any distance apart.. It may just be easier to buy a small tractor battery for $30.00... The macerator will only be used 1-2 times a year....
