RE: Draw bar length, anything magical?

I have a regular class v drawbar with 2in drop. I cut and drilled mine so my ball is RIGHT outside of the receiver tube. I think it handles better. I dont run any wdh or sway setup and have zero issues. My hitch is rated for 1300TW and 13000 deadload and 1700 and 17000 WDH amd the drawbar is rated at 1200 TW and 12000 lbs

RE: Do I need equalizer bars?

I have the same basically the same setup with a 2500 truck and I don't run any WDH. My running weight is just under 7K and about 700lbs TW. I run a class v receiver.

RE: Propane tank valve

Once I am drawing off a good tank with the arrow pointed to the good tank, should I have some leak out the other side when I disconnect my empty tank? I was having an issue this weekend and noticed when I pulled the empty tank off I was getting a small amount of propane coming out of the hose even though the switch was over to the good tank. Faulty regulator?

Battery charge not reading full.

Just brought the trailer out of storage and put in a brand new battery and the indicator light is only shoring 1/4 charge. I work at Advance Auto so I tested the battery and its perfect. When plugged into the home it still reads 1/4. I put a multimeter on the battery while it was plugged in and it was showing 13.7-13.8 so I know it was changing. It worked perfect when I put it away last year. Any thoughts?

RE: Gotta buy 1 tire tomorrow, limited choices

Towmaster on all my trailers. Not one issues in 6 years. Unless you count the time I nailed a 4x4 board on the highway.....

RE: How Often? Expert Advice Needed

Once I greese my chassis on the HD I use the excess (spit out)on the ball. About once a year. The ball and coupler have no marks.

RE: Major elec problems.

It was a DuoTherm but I have since upgraded to the hunter. I found my culprit. Prob with all the sparking and everything, I dug into my AC unit to find a Blown 3amp Purple fuse. I replaced it and now all is good now. Thanks for everybodys help!

RE: Major elec problems.

Well I removed that wire but I am still having a problem getting my AC and furnace to work. I have no power going to the thermo. If I jump the wires nothing happens. All my fuses are good. What can I check?

RE: Major elec problems.

You guys were all right. That box was a 120 box. Why theres a 12v wire to it is beyond me but that explains the massive sparks are blowing fuse. That wire could have been blown all along since I got the trailer used.

RE: Major elec problems.

The 15amp regular wire from the converter runs under the trailer to a junction box. When I took the plate off and then wire nut containing the wire from the converter that keeps blowing I saw 2 regular wires and a romex wire all wire tied together. I took some pics and will upload them shortly. The fuse blows. Not the breaker.

RE: Major elec problems.

The stuff going to the slideout works fine. My water pump works as well. The wire that's bad is romex and runs into coregated conduit up into the wall..... Like I said AC or Heater does not kick on now. No fan no nothing

RE: Major elec problems.

Ok. My bad. I went though everything and I noticed a fuse sparking when I was moving it around and contact was not good. Everything but the ac and furnance works. I have a Hunter t stat so it bypasses that 12v but nothing kicks on even when jumped. But again when the converter breaker is put on it blows my first 15 amp fuse labeled Kitchen. It blows it when attached under the frame inside a little box to romex looking wire.

Major elec problems.

Issues I am having. When breaker for converter is turned on , It blows my 15amp "kitchen" fuse HARD. All other 12V items are fine. converter seems to be working perfectly. That wire that the fuse is attach too goes out to a small box on my frame where it goes to the slideout and then to a loom that goes up into the trailer wall. I ran that wire to the slideout section to isolate which side is bad and it doesn't blow the fuse on the slideout part. I attach that 12v wire again to the one going in the loom and its fine on 12v when breaker is off but when on it blows. My fridge, range hood and furnace do not work at all. With battery on or off. Converter on or off. I don't even know where to start looking. I have 12v power going into that line with out the converter why would it blow when its on. Its still 12 volt. I jumped that wire in the box to another terminal and it blew that one as well . Any thoughts? its a 35amp older one.

RE: WD If Delivering Trailers

The first year I towed my trailer I used a WDH, but now that I adjusted more tongue weight I havent used my WDH at all. Trailer comes in total about 7300 and a hitch weight of 700. Truck drops the same now as it did with a WDH. About 3/4 of an inch. Only time i use it now is if i go to my yearly 800 mile trip to Myrtle Beach.

RE: Duo Therm AC Thermostat Issues

AHHHH Ok. I was thinking about upgrading to the hunter 42995 stat. They have been discontinued but Walmart had a few dusty ones left on the shelf. I do like keeping everything factory so I may dry and blow out that thermo and see whats up. Save me the 20 bucks. Thanks for all your help guys!

Duo Therm AC Thermostat Issues

I've owned this trailer for about 2 years now and the original Duo Therm analog thermostat has worked great, but on the last trip using the ac I turned it to 73ish and it never kicked off but was COLD as heck inside. I knew there was an issue. I raised the temp until it kicked off and when it did I was around the 88* mark !! Just shy of the 90* max mark. Obviously it wasn't reading right. Keeping it at 87-88 it was fine for the weekend but I want to know why its not reading like it used too. The trip before this last one was a trip to Myrtle where we kept the AC at 73-75 and it kicked on and off like it should. Thoughts? AC and T stat is on a 03 Springdale. Thanks!
