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.

RE: Bleach treated water on lawn?

I power wash my driveway every year and afterwards spray water/bleach at 60/40 and rinse off. Has never seemed to have bother trees and bushes at the edge although the worms do squiggle. I would water my lawn and go on. Of course you could always do a test patch.

RE: Macerator Pro&Con

Or you may want to have the tote tank in the back of a pickup so you won't have to tow it any distance over rough ground. That's another use for a macerator pump. That's what I do but only for gray water. Used it for black one time at home. Didn't want to wait for the five trailer in front of me at the dump station.

RE: Ford is raising their fuel capacities.

Big difference between stopping and stopping for fuel. I would much rather stop at larger rest areas for a leg stretch than a busy truck stop. Just because you have the extra fuel doesn't mean you're not going to stop, it just changes where you going to stop. And that is worth it, especially when having dogs. Once drove 700 miles in a (long)day and none of the stops were at gas stations.

RE: DirecTV Help

Using any number of places get the coordinates for the bird. Load a clear line of site place the dish, set the angles and elevation, connect the coax between the dish and receiver. The one I use also has a small bubble level in it which needs to be exactly level before setting angles and elevation and then the coordinates are spot on.

RE: Eternal bond tape or Dicor?

Was thinking of sending pictures of mine but they are almost the same as Larry. I think that the key to Eternabond is roll, roll, roll, and roll again.

RE: Eternal bond tape or Dicor?

I used Eternabond. Did not bend it. Used 4 straight strips and roll really good.

RE: Solution for damage from flat tires - thoughts?

Had a tire blow at about 62 MPH. My fiver has a metal sheet above the wheel and no damage there. Skirt cracked in one place and I glued it back together. Also the axles are flipped, perhaps the increase in height also helped.

RE: 08 3500 chevy

The only thing I would be a little hinky of is that is not that many miles for an 08 emissions truck. Sounds like a short trip truck to me? 66000 on mine, mostly 225 miles each way.

RE: EVIC symbols? Bad fuel or coincidentally something else?

I put diesel in it. Green button right? You may get in trouble looking for green. Doesn't always work that way.

RE: Getting shocked.

Ok thanks everyone. I found culprit. The heavy duty extension cord I was using must be bad I had the same experience except mine was the adapter between extension cord and trailer cord. Don't remember exact number but checked voltage between bumper and ground(wet concrete) was around 8v.
