RE: Tear in rubber roof

Beaker 05/26/15 10:39am Fifth-Wheels

Now you are asking why the post if you have the problem solved. No good deed goes unpunished. Good to see your post. I would like to see more people post problems and their solutions.

RE: question about a really rough ride

It could be just the distance between the tow vehicle axles and the trailer axles and when they make contact with the nasty spots. Harmonics. But probably not for 5200 miles.

RE: are you towing with a short bed crew cab?

The only problem with a manual slider is that it won't be used when needed. Ford Crew Cab, short bed, contoured front cap and manual slider hitch. I should've used the slider and didn't.

RE: Looking at a 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD - advice?

Matter of time and the govt will say it causes cancer in Monkeys and sheep. Guess we'll just have to keep the monkeys and sheep off the roads.

RE: I would like your opinion on replacing tires.

I would replace them. If I had not gone to LT tires, I was considering Maxxis. I have a zero tolerance mindset when it comes to having vehicles whizzing past me at 70 mph while I'm changing a tire. Then as soon as you have the spare installed you will be praying that another one doesn't go because you are now running naked. It's just an insurance policy or the Murphys law thing. This. Nobody has ever had an LT tire go flat on a trailer, changed along side of the road, and had to hope another goes flat cause they don't have a spare. Yeah, right.

RE: essexcredit charges $459 loan fee

They want to charge me $495 for processing/closing fee. Wth, it's not a house. is this negotiable? Or any chance they would waive it? I have excellent credit. It's really a junk fee. You can ask, pay it, or go elsewhere. It's never a good idea to tie your house (an appreciating asset) to an RV (a depreciating asset)... There are some folks from 2008 who may not agree that a house is "an appreciating asset". Doesn't always work that way.

RE: Looking at a 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD - advice?

Stopped at a local dealer today and test drove a 2008 Silverado 2600HD with the 6.6L Duramax engine. It's in good shape, less than 73k miles, and they are asking less than $30k which is the upper end of my I have the same truck, 4wd, extended cab, bought new and have around 61K miles. Interstate solo at 70mph, fuel mileage 18-20. Around town sucks, but I don't do much in town driving. Towing an 8k trailer I get 11-12 mpg. Regens, don't even know when its happening. The only problem I have had is brake controller replaced under warranty. Sure is nice compared to after market. As for price, I bought mine for $37000, truck listed at $52000. If you remember the financial crisis of '08, they weren't giving them away but a good deal was easy to get. It seems to me that year should be in the low $20s. It is 7 years old. Of course if you have been looking for trucks, I sure you probably know the market. The fuel tank is 26 gal but I have a 40 gal Tranfer flow fuel/toolbox. Expensive but nice. The '08-11 seem to get a bad rap because of the regens, but I love this truck. It is my first diesel and hoping it lasts to be my last. If I remember correctly, this is an LTZ.

RE: Jayco Fifth Wheel

All the furniture and walls are holding that heat. Thermal mass. I would use a thermometer to check the temp output of your a/c. This would probably answer your question.

RE: National General has lost my business!_

I have never seen a Insurance company pay for water intrusion from lack of maintaince Had a 3 year old travel trailer totaled out due to water damage. Being a newbie, I had no idea about caulking. Strange how insurance companies supposedly don't pay for overloaded vehicles, no maintenance, etc, but will pay when I go drunk thru the stop sign at 80 mph!

RE: Fort Wilderness in July

, the most popular rides were 60-80 minute waits! I wish the wait times were that short when we were there the week after Thanksgiving. To OP, hot and humid is a kind way to describe it.

RE: Can't See to Hitch Up

My fiver has a built in "mirror" strip on the front. Works great.

RE: Mystery leak

What type of siding?

RE: Day nught shades

If you can catch them before the string breaks you can melt the frayed ends and weld them together, then pull the new string thru using the old. Will definitely try that next time. Hope there won't be a next time- but I know better.

RE: Pimples or bumps behind wallpaper

Really puzzled on how water is to blame. I had the same problem in the same place. A water hose left spraying on the window showed that mine actually came from above the window. Water follows paths that can fool anyone. But my exterior was aluminum which I believe has more places for water to leak. Although the bumps are showing only in that spot, you may find more below the present line when you remove that panel. If you can find the correct panel, I would cut it a little high and maybe raise the border just enough to cover but not high enough to be noticeable from the rest of the room.
