RE: Fifth wheel backing

...but it seems like it takes forever for the input to, well, input. Yes, and you probably cut it more and when it does start turning it is way too much, too fast. When this starts to happen stop and pull ahead a bit in the opposite direction you where turning. Of course the best way is practice, practice, etc but this should help in the meantime.

RE: The dreaded potty burp, can't eliminate it

My old fifth used to do this. It had a curved pipe and when getting full it seemed like the tissue would start backing up in the pipe. It would burp and when this happened I know it was time to dump although if I "pushed" it like you did, I would get a couple more days.

RE: Greenbrier campground in Gatlinburg???

RE: Hunting Island State Park Site 157

Only 1 trip out of a dozen were we able to sit outside on the back loop. The area around 157 is also low and floods in a rain. Most of the back loops do. Sums it up pretty good. Many campers are almost on the road. My favorite is site 177. But I do love this campground.

trailer aid with equa flex

Does anyone have experience with trailer aid on an equa flex suspension? Seems that I have read differing view on this. Would like to here from someone who has used it on an equa flex or similar suspension. Thanks, Beaker

RE: 2010-2011 Carriage Cameo front cap leak?

On each on the caulking on the side around the front cap was cracked and the screws at the bottom around the pin box area are rusted.....water leak? The rust would be a red flag for me. Ask the seller to turn them. The screws will probably either keep turning or bread off with a little pressure.

RE: Discovered a leak, where is it coming from?

I had a leak around one of the bolts that hold the awning on. Look for signs of rust.

RE: Ram Box Creating a Problem

I have the Sidewinder and works fine. I do find it easier to back up than "normal" hitch.

RE: Can't Get DirecTV To Work in Trailer....

You do not need an activated account to find the DirecTV sat 101. No they don't. But what is the sense of finding signal if the box is not going to work. B band converter? I have same box and it is not needed. Call the Tech. support for Dish and they will walk you through the set up steps and they can run tests from their office or call Dish and have send a tech out to set the system up for the 1st time. I would not call Direct Tv. I think that they would be opening a can of worms. When calling to activate it, they should tell them it is another box for sisters house, which will cost them $7 a month, otherwise it will be another account costing at the minimum $50 or more monthly. Some may think that this is dishonest but until DTV becomes a little more, can't quite think of what word would fit here, I have no problems with it as long as it is used in the RV. I use the bubble level like they have, signal meter, and leave tv inside. Don't know what their trailer is but I use the cable terminal connection on mine and not a problem. With a clear sky you can find... ...find the DirecTV sat 101. Using a good compass aim it at 220 degrees and 30 degrees up. You should be able to use the signal meter in the setup of your receiver to find and peak the signal. For HD you have to set the tilt. And if you have someone inside try tilt. If no one inside then it will be easier to have the tv outside. It would be much easier if a mast was found that had the latitude, altitude, and tilt makers on it.

RE: Can I????

First your empty curb weight is more like 6844 Yes, my 2008 extended cab is at 7000 according to paper from GM. Throw in the hitch, westin bars, and my 40 Gal Transfer Flow tank and I know without weighting that I am over GVWR with my 7200 lb fifth wheel. I would not even want to think about carrying the pin weight of that fifth wheel.
