RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

On my Sherline that "button" is just a plug that allows refilling of the gauge if it has glycerine in it. Yeah looks like a plug, don't seem to actually be a button.

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

When using a Sherline scale, you may find you need to jump up and down on the tongue a bit to make the scale settle. If you don't, the reading can be wrong. Thanks for the tip. But is that a button in the top of the dial? & if yes what does it do?

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

I got my E-Bay scale for $100.00 & wonder what does the what sorta looks like a rubber covered button do on the top of the scale dial? So far I see my boats tongue weight is is only about 100-150 depending on how I shift it about on the scale & my car trailer need to have the car adjusted being how it sits with my Samurai on it is about about 900 lbs. But I already knew just by looking at it the the rig is too far forward on the trailer. Handy & fun little tool & I think I'm end up marking the trailer for each 4x4 I'll normally tow at its best position for the tongue weight.

RE: Over cab bed area external crack, Should I be concerned?

Ok, so I'm thinking I'll loosen the rears, yet see no reason to keep them tighter for the HWY? The camper should basically hold itself in place the hold downs keep it from sliding from what I understand?

RE: Over cab bed area external crack, Should I be concerned?

... I figure for the more bumpy roads they must help?Without a doubt. Loosen the rear tie downs when on the bumpy roads, it will take some of the stress off of the cab over. Wayne I wonder if maybe I have the tie downs too tight or loose now? & Yes from the start my plan was dirt roads in the desert & sand as in Pismo beach & glamis & why I got a 4x4 truck. Yet have not gone yet. Getting closer as I can afford it. Got the 4 foot trailer extension in now & got my trailer & now I need to get a WDS for the trailer & then I'll start heading out to play.

RE: Over cab bed area external crack, Should I be concerned?

So those are you guys saying the stabilizers shocks would make things worse? I plan more trips soon to the desert & pulling my 4x4 toys with me & this means more off road fire roads or whatever to get to our campgrounds. I figure for the more bumpy roads they must help?

Over cab bed area external crack, Should I be concerned?

I noticed this crack the other day wonder if it something to be concerned about? I've been saying to myself that I should get those stabilizer that hold up the bed & now think it even more? What do you guys think? Its only on the drivers side. & its a 1985 Lance. http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1031456/fullsize/img_6737.jpg http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1031457/fullsize/img_6738.jpg http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1031458/fullsize/img_6739.jpg I wonder if thats how it looks outside what might be going on inside?

I just ordered this one used for $100.00 off E-Bay http://www.etrailer.com/Tools/Sherline/5780.html?gclid=CjwKEAjwgMieBRCB3bqB94e9lD4SJABW3sTNYl9Ru5NvSSajj8Vr8pgW0sPJ_MWgRbhDCXFFlXa9YBoCHADw_wcB

RE: Sway control?

Well, I will be buying the trailer weight scale & the WDS... & wonder if I should send the additional for the sway?

Sway control?

Do many of you use them? Is it worth the added trouble & expense? I just watched a video about a Reese sway control & you have to drill holes in the tongue. & etc.

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

I just spoke to the tech at Torklift & they told me that if I'm towing various things then a proper scale may make more sense then a bathroom scale. If I was always towing the same toy a Bathroom scale should work fine. But I plan to tow a full sized Brinco & a Suzuki Samurai & maybe my Rachero or my Miata. or my wifes Honda on road trips. So it seems maybe spending the extra money maybe a an easier faster way to go?

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

I'm thinking one simple mistake & there goes a bathroom scale??!?! But can you explain or give me a link showing how to use a bathroom scale?

Trailer tongue weight scales?

Now that I've added a 4 foot extension on my Camper to tow my toys with, I'm more concerned about the tongue weights & wanting to make sure i'm placing the weight properly. So what a great inexpensive price on a good scale that you would recommend?

RE: Looking for south Kern river camp spot near the water

Looking for south Kern river camp spot near the water

I've never been to the kern river & always heard great stuff about it. & wonder if the drought has affected the water levels? I live in the Los Angeles area & wanted to maybe do a simple over nighter so I don't wanna drive too far. But somewhere near the water that will allow our dog to swim & us to get some fishing in. I'm bored with Castiac lake & all its broken glass all along waters edge, so I'm willing to drive much further to find better spots. So any suggestion are appreciated.
