RE: Shower valve question

Most of the restrictors can just be removed. However. More flow will cause you to use the hot water faster, and so run out faster. Ask me how I know. Yeah I did.

RE: Need new fresh water tank

I NEVER put water into the fresh tank. In fact I removed it from our pup to create more storage. When we dry camp. We use the CG facilities, and I keep a water container on the picnic table for washing dishes, cooking and such. Why? Because I'm lazy. I will NOT go to the dump station. So at the risk of some searing flames. How often do you believe you will camp with out water hookups? IF you camp on full hookup sites. You don't need a fresh water tank. Or if like me you dry camp, but use the CG facilities, again, you may not need a fresh water tank. For me, I'd just forget it was there. IF you plan on using it a lot. To answer your question. It is prolly 30 gal. I'd take it to a RV repair guy to have it fixed, and I would let the seller know what he sold me.

RE: Levelers

Lynx Levelers. Easy to store, light, easy to use. No cons at all. Great product. they also have chocks that lock into them. You can just back or pull onto them until the chock stops you.

RE: Can this be removed?

If it is what it looks like it is. That is what it is supposed to do. It is designed to protect the back of the TT, and the sewer pipes by letting you know you are getting ready to drag. Some are actually strong enough to lift the TT as they drag. You can take them off. But then you may at some point lose your sewer connections, or holding tanks.

RE: New Trailer Tires... Goodyear v. others?

4 year old Goodyear Marathons? You are on borrowed time. I will never own another set of GY tires. You pay extra for the name, and get less. Were I you. I would try to find some Maxxis tires, IF you are sticking with trailer tires, and not going to a truck tire. Maxxis is generally thought of as the best ST (trailer tire) on the market.

RE: Destination Trailers??

Not real sure what a destination trailer is? It’s designed to be towed to a campground, parked and used throughout the season. It is not primarily intended to be towed back and forth to your home base each weekend or to be towed cross country on an extended vacation, though that is not impossible. Like your typical travel trailer, the destination trailer hooks on to the rear of your tow vehicle, is self contained with waste holding tanks, freshwater tank, refrigerator, running water, and hooks up to an outside power source. http://rvnewschannel.com/2011/02/what-is-a-destination-trailer/ We always called those. Parks Models.

RE: 2004 F-150 Tow Mirrors

Did they make tow mirrors for F-150's or only the larger trucks? they did for the 2010 and newer. And since it is the same body style. they should work on a 2004

RE: 2004 F-150 Tow Mirrors

Those do look nice. What factory mirrors (models & years) would be a bolt on replacement? I wouldn't mind checking a wrecking yard for used mirrors. Until 2015. F150s have not really had a body change since 2004. Seems any thing since 2004 should bolt on.

RE: Where can I park my coach near Asheville with electric

Unless you have something running in the coach. The house battery should not discharge in a month. Engine battery either. You would just disconnect it, and it should be fine. In that case. Maybe you could find a storage lot, OR call one of the RV dealers in the area, and see if they would let you store it on their lot. Also "many" CG do have storage lots for a reasonable price. Much less than putting it on a campsite.

RE: help

When I dewinterize. I hookup the city water. Turn on the bathroom faucet and let it run until the water is clear. Then I un bypass the water heater. Open the faucet again, and let the water heater fill, and I 'm dewinterized. Why would you need to do more.? BTW. I NEVER put antifreeze in the fresh tank.That's basically the protocol but you also want to open evrey fixture and flush the toilet to empty every bit of antifreeze in the supply lines. Just opening one valve may not rinse it all out. I just care about getting the antifreeze in the main line past the WH. One faucet down stream will do that. The rest will take care of them selves the first time you turn one on. AS for the tolite. I don't worry about it. It will FLUSH pretty quick.

RE: Questions ?

My 2014 dodge 2500 , What happens to my T P M S when I rotate my tires ? Also , why does a lower compression gas engine have more engine braking than a diesel ? Diesel compression is all on the front side. It has none on the back side. Just a big ol hole for air to rush thru.

RE: Sway Controller ? for longtime towers

In truth. you may NEVER turn sharp enough while backing to bottom out, or pull out the slide. But that is why the warning is there. To prevent you from doing either. Can it happen? Yes. But you would really have to jack it in there. It is quite apparent it has happened. Or there would be no warning. Just like the waning on your hairdryer not to put it in water. Some idiot did it.

RE: Sun damage & how often to wax?

Wax is not necessary for RVs, although it does tend to make it easier to clean. I sue 303 Aerospace protectant on everything outside my TT though for UV protection. Why is it not necessary? When I wax my TT. I can visually see the difference in the paint. The waxed paint is several shades darker than the unwaxed. Waxing brings back the original color, and shine. Plus waxing takes a lot of scratches out. Yes there are tree limbs where I camp, and where I have to back thru the yard. I kept my last TT for 10 years. Friend of mine had the same year. I waxed mine once a year. He never waxed his. His looked like it was 100 years old, faded, and chalky. Mine looked like new. So IMOP. Waxing is not only necessary. But mandatory. I like my stuff to feel slicky too.

RE: Pulling a Travel Trailer across I70

My wife and I are newbie fulltimers and are going to Denver in May.We are going to Utah via I70.We are pulling a 32' Ultra Light Rockwood Windjammer7500 lbs loaded with a 2012 Ford F150 twin turbo eco boost with trailer package.Is this doable across the rockies? Any concerns Why wouldn't it? You are well UNDER the rating for the truck. A turbo does not lose HP, or Torque at the higher elevations. Interstate grades are not real bad. So going UP is not an issue. I would however start down at a very conservative speed, and a low gear. like 2nd. Remember. It is easier to keep the speed down, and rig under control, than it is to get it back after you have lost speed control. The engine will hold you back pretty good if you use the low gears.

RE: Hung walls or ??

Looked it up best I could. Seems the hung panels are considered easier to repair, less chance of rotting, and are lighter than the laminated fiberglass, and wood. As for strength. Seems they are split on that. That is all I could find. Not really sure of the source. My Apex has neither. It is built with AZDEL. Laminated, but with no wood in it.

RE: Problems with buying 3-1/2 hours away

So , is anyone using a non selling dealer for warranty work? Actually I did for the fridge recall. AND I was at my local dealer to get a new light I broke. Found out they had started selling the brand of TT I have. He told me. IF you need any thing just bring it here. We will take care of it, and forest River will pay us for it. Will not hesitate to take him up on it.
