RE: Brake Problem....your thoughts

No matter what you do, when you have to drive it to a repair shop, if you have hit something, hit something cheap.

RE: Titan Disc Brake Conversion

If you follow this link it will take you to a blogger who had it done to his trailer. I don't know if he used the same company or not but it details the installation very well.

RE: Landing Gear

When my landing gear went bad and ran slow, it was the nut on the jack shaft that was seizing up. When I took it apart it was a brass or bronze nut. No way to fixy fixy. Time for new landing leg.

RE: Venture Landing Gear Number

RE: Help, dead mouse in heater case!

You could just get a clothes pin, that should keep the smell down. All kidding aside, after I found mice in my engine compartment, I went out and bought some "Cab Guard" and kept a packet in the top of the engine and found some 100% pure Peppermint Oil and put a little of that on about 4 cotton ball put thru out the engine area (I change out the cotton balls every 2 months) and both of these have kept the critters away.

RE: Water Bladder Questions

Roy, I have used a plastic 55 gallon drum for my water replacement, but got tired of hauling the empty drum around while traveling. Camping World offers a 45 gallon bladder but I got on the net and found a 75 gallon bladder. It was just delivered and it doesn't weigh very much and is compact when folded and stowed.

Water Bladder Questions

Those of you that use a water bladder to transport your water when boondocking, after you transfer the water to your RV, do you hang up the bladder to "drain out" or just fold it up and stow it until the next use and kinda rinse it out at that time?

F350 Aftermarket Shocks

I am shopping for new shocks for my F350 4x4 that I use for towing my 5th Wheel, and wondering what others have installed that worked well when towing?

RE: Half Tons are NOT useless!!!

Half ton pickups are gaining in popularity, the way I understand it alot of women are buying them.

RE: Brake Drum Scraping

Could be worn brake shoes, something broken inside the brake drum (spring, pin, etc.) It could be a broken bearing. Maybe a good thing to do is jack up that side of the trailer and spin the wheels and listen, but then it might only make noise if there is a load on the wheel. I do believe you have some work to do.

RE: Inverter question

You may want to do yourself some 12 volt education, what you "would like" to do really is not feasible. I would suggest starting out with this site and do a little goggling 12 volt inverters. Good luck on your travels.

RE: Suburban Water Heater Troubleshooting

Well I tested the thermostat and it tested good, went to CW and they had a gas valve in stock but wanted $95 so I ordered a valve for $57 on the net and should be here next week.

RE: Suburban Water Heater Troubleshooting

Harvard, I just pulled the wires off the gas valve and measured ohms across the coils and they test open right now. I guess that is my problem. Now to find a gas valve solenoid tomorrow.

RE: new outlet w/USB

I am looking for an outlet with USB port but the 120 volt side needs to be a GFI setup, anyone found one of these?

Suburban Water Heater Troubleshooting

My Suburban SW10DE Water Heater will not work off of propane. What would be the procedure to troubleshoot the thermostat. I see the two terminals and was going to ohm test these but with little wire running between the terminal on the other side of the wires, wouldn't that give me zero ohms? My other question would be how do you get to the control board? Thanks.

RE: Gate Valve question

When faced with the same problem I cut the pipe and use an MJ coupler. I don't know what a "MJ coupler" is but when I replaced my grey water valve I also did not have any "give" in the pipe, but I cut the pipe several inches from the valve to get some clearance to work and put the pipe back together with a Fernco rubber fitting which is a rubber repair coupling and it grips the pipe with hose clamps that go around the ends of the rubber coupling. I picked mine up at Homo Depot for a couple of bucks. And if you need to work on that valve again the Fernco comes apart easily.
