RE: Slideout mechanisms

Cable systems are quite a bit lighter than standard geared systems. You'll notice on many "Ultra light units" that they have switched to cable systems. Remember that they are using aircraft grade S.S. cables (just like on commercial aircraft). And finally repairing a cable system is usually done from the inside of the trailer ( no need to remove the undercarriage cover)to access the drive mechanism. I found the cable system pulls the top & bottom of the slide in equally for a rather tight fit. Happy trails,

RE: And you thought your parking spot was tough

Not sure where the storing your RV at home equates to cheap. It would probably cheaper for me to keep at a storage lot as I keep it plugged in at home running the air and fridge fully stocked ready to roll when we get the chance. ======================= Running your A.C. & frig in the winter in Pontiac??

RE: And you thought your parking spot was tough

quote=whiteeye42 my answer to you would be if you don't like it don't look at it in other words my yard my camper i will do with what i want as long as there is no HOA or city law against keeping the trailer at home in a side yard...quote ======================================== And it's the attitude like yours that has proliferated so many city ordinances against parking trailers in suburban home sites.

RE: And you thought your parking spot was tough

No wonder some people think so little about "campers'. Here's some one who can afford a big brick home- a paver brick driveway and can't afford to store his trailer in a storage facility??? Wonder how his neighbors feel about looking at a trailer everytime they drive down the street?

RE: Camping or other discounts?

Well here in Michigan our glorious Republican Governor Snyder stopped giving Senior Citizens a discount for our State Park permits. Talk about a cheap skate......

RE: Primetime Lacrosse 2014

My friend who I mentioned previously just got back from Florida and his electric stabilizers won't work again. This will be his fourth set. Plus while in Florida he had to have his furnace fixed- his thermostat replaced and the propane regulator replaced. Said this is his first & last Lacrosse trailer. Never again...

RE: changed my mind about selling

We're going to do just the opposite. Think we'll hang it up this year. Getting to be way too much of a hassle. Hauling- maintenance- insurance- storage- modifications- reservation hassles etc....Plus the price of fuel is skyrocketing again- Gee just in time for summer camping trips..... So you're getting out of rv'ing? =========================== Yep, reached a time in life where hauling a trailer around doesn't appeal to me anymore. Just seems like a lot of extra work just to go someplace that can turn out to be a nightmare parked by a bunch of drunks. Besides more and more parks throughout the South & Southwest don't allow campfires and that was part of the magic. I suppose I'll miss some of it but we will still travel a lot without the trailer. Happy trails folks,

RE: EPDM Rubber Roof Installation

Must EPDM membrane be solidly adhered to plywood substrate on installation? Wouldn't a loosely attached membrane result in premature failure?................... ======================== If something is flopping around up there while driving down the road then over time fatigue will set in and weaken the material. Flexing material is never good for it's longevity especially if it's wind generated. Now I know for certain that many roofs are not glued down 100% but I would suspect that gluing all the edges would be a priority. Happy trails,

RE: 2015 Jayco Production

Here's a email I sent to Jayco with their response about mattress sizes. They are making changes in the 2015 line up. Happy trails, ------------------- From: WILLIAM BARNARD Sent: Saturday, March 01, 2014 8:37 AM To: info@jayco.com Subject: Contact Us Submission (Jayco.com) Comments: Reference your new Eagle trailer model # 338RLTS. Need to know the actual size of the queen and king size beds. Thank you, Bill Barnard Reply: info@jayco.com Mon 3/3/2014 10:21 AM Dear Mr. Barnard: Thank you for your e-mail and for your interest in Jayco.

RE: New Model 33RES Cougar X-Lite

We are looking at the same floor plan, but in the Denali 287RE, rather than the Cougar RES. The Denali has a king size bed that the Cougar does not and a much larger carrying capacity. Here is the link: Clicky ========================== Yes, wife and I looked over the Denali 287RE about a year ago. Very nice trailer..I pointed out the king size bed and she pointed out it's way to hard to make it up every day. There's no room on each side and trying to push down the sheets and blankets was a no no for her.. :) The Cougar has walk around room on each side of the queen bed. I prefer the new "arch ceilings" they are putting in new trailers. Makes it look a lot larger inside. Besides I couldn't find any dealer here in Michigan - Ohio or Indiana who would discount it 30% off MSRP. And I refuse to pay more than 70% of MSRP on new RV's. Happy trails,

New Model 33RES Cougar X-Lite

Just received info on a new model trailer from Keystone Cougar. The 33RES has 3 slides with pretty much all the storage and options I can think of. Was wondering if anyone has seen one of these Cougar 33RES Happy trails,

RE: Total Loss

Sorry for your loss. It has to be discouraging. What type of sway control did you have and do you feel it did it's job? =================== We hit a patch of pure ice. Couldn't see it until we were on top of it. I do remember feeling the truck not responding to steering and then out of my side view mirror I saw the trailer coming around me. Threw my 3/4 Ton Megacab Diesel like it was a Honda. Then it was just bang- bang- bang. State Police shut down I-75 due to 8 accidents within a mile of us. The pathetic part was that 2 hours later the road was fine. If I would have waited & stayed off the snowy road I would be writing this from Ft. Myers not Michigan. Oh well- so be it.

Total Loss

A few words of advice. "Don't haul when it's snowing" Last Sunday on our way to Florida for 2 months we flipped our new trailer going 40 MPH in a snow squall on I-75. Didn't make it 50 miles from home and swoosh!! Thank God no serious injuries- just banged up a bit. Adjuster just called and said the trailer will be scrapped. My Ram truck will need an evaluation at the dealer. Been trailering all over the U.S. and Eastern half of Canada and never had a problem. Guess it was my time. So beware and drive careful my friends...
