RE: Door won't close without slamming it

If it's like most trailer latches there's 4 screws on the interior side of the latch, remove them and the cover plate and lub the mechanism with lithium grease. Plan on doing it every couple of years so you won't be a door slammer. Denny

RE: Route Planning Software for Android

Copilot Premium for Android is $10 - lately on sale for $7.99 at the Play Store. It is one of the few GPS apps that you can download all maps right onto your phone or tablet and use the nav with no data service. The Premium has all of the features of a dash GPS PLUS it has RV routing for height and propane. There is also a free version but the free version does not speak street names or reroute automatically if you go off route - the premium version does. You can create a route with multiple stops. The Co Pilot would be great but you can't load the maps onto a SD card so you need 1.7gb open in your internal memory, I only have 1gb open on my tablet. Denny

RE: Neutral loss during disconnect a problem?

Yes you should always turn off the breaker but when you pull the plug out and if one lugs loses contact before the other you end up with a open circuit not a floating neutral condition. The biggest problem unplugging under power is the arcing that occurs and damages the plug and receptical. Denny

RE: Need Tailgater help

Like others have said point it to the north but I also have found that a compass is useful when checking for a clear view for the satellites. Denny

RE: My Lippert Frame and Me (Long)

I didn't know Nuwa used Lippert. Are all the cracks next to welds? I usually check around the spring hanger area cuz it amazes me that they don't crack or break off with so much mass/weight on them and with the beating of the road and side stresses, no matter who built the frame! Craig Some of the Discover America and HHII trailers were made on Lipert frames for a few years. I've seen the photos of the repair Gary had done to his trailer and the welder did a great job and should last as long as the trailer. Denny

RE: Can Dish receiver work with roof antenna?

I've used it a couple of times and it works just fine, brings the channels up on the guide and you can fine tune the signal with its strength meter. The only drawback is you have to manually remove the channels from the guide when you move. We normally just change our locals when we move but it would come in handy during bad weather and you lose the sat signal. Denny

RE: Rebates and special orders?

When we ordered our F350 last year we got all sorts of rebates when we placed the order, it took 11 weeks to get it and we still got the rebates. Just get it in writing and have them sign it. Denny

RE: Ultra fab Power Twin II?

Is anyone using this to stabilize the back end? How do you like it? Better or worse than "regular" electric jacks? Thanks! We've had a set for 10 years, they are strong enough to level the trailer up to 2 inchs in the rear. One thing to plan on doing is welding the two jacks together to get the best results. Denny

RE: Water Softener Storage

When I say hit it its when I sanitize the whole system, I do it by pouring bleach into the hose before I hook it up. That way it gets through the whole system including filters and softener. Denny Sounds good, gets the hose, too. And my wife just got a deal on a set of funnels. Thanks. I use a turkey baster. Denny

RE: Water Softener Storage

I store ours for 2 to 4 months at a time, I just regenerate it and store it. When we go on the road again I hit it with a shot of clorox when I'm sanitizing the system and that's it. No draining no nothing. Denny

RE: Anybody towing with a late model gasser?

UPDATE: Insurance (USAA) denied the claim, I'm stuck with the repair bill.I just put 6 new tires, and Bilstein shocks all around , otherwise it would be sitting on a Dodge dealers used car lot! Did you ever send a fuel sample to a lab? A friend of mine runs 3 6.7s in his construction business and one did the same thing, Ford said fuel contamination so no warranty. Fuel sample came back with DEF in the fuel, insurance company paid the repairs. Employees got a lesson on what hole to put the DEF in. Without a fuel sample proving contamination insurance companies will do nothing. Denny

We are pulling our 16K trailer with a 6.2 with 4.30 gears in the mountains out west and anywhere else we want to go. Denny

RE: Dish Network... on hold

I suspend my service every year for 4months are restart it again. They charged me $5/mo except this year which was $0. I don't know if they changed policy or screwed up. I aint asking and simply accepted the $0 charge this year. I don't know what they will do next year. BTY I have leased equipment and my 2 year contract expired 2years ago-- But I still pay the lease charge for two receivers. Maybe I will call them up and threaten to cancel to see what kind of deal they will make me now that they have no legal way to not let me cancel... It's all in the way you tell them to do it, hold or vacation you get charged 5 a month suspend it's 0. Denny

RE: The Definitive Torque vs. Horsepower post

pnichols you hit on something I have known for years, it's all about the gears and I will also add tire size. You're right on with that tire size issue. That's why I have over-stock-diameter tires on my Class C motorhome: Too "make taller" it's overall engine-to-drive-wheel coming for the most part from it's 4.56 rear differential gear ratio. The extra drive axle torque I can make happen by rev'ing it's V10 engine higher into it's horsepower curve with the smaller stock tires is not needed for our travels since we have a small light-weight motorhome built for over-kill on Ford's heavy duty ton-and-a-half E450 chassis ... so I trade some pulling power for the improved gas mileage I get with lower cruising engine RPM. Thats where the new 6 speed comes handy with low gears, the double overdrive cuts the cruising rpm way down. Denny

RE: The Definitive Torque vs. Horsepower post

pnichols you hit on something I have known for years, it's all about the gears and I will also add tire size. You can't gear a gas motor like a diesel you have to gear it to its power band that is always at a higher rpm. If you are looking for a gas truck off the lot good luck because properly geared ones are far and few between. When I ordered my present truck the salesman tried to talk me out of 4.30 gears but I new better. I will also add that the new line of gas motors (I only have first hand knowledge of Ford) are way different when it comes to way they adjust for the altitude. Denny
