RE: Weight distribution bars

IN truth. It is the buyer's responsibility to take care of the hitch setup. You should not even touch it, don't tell him what to do. Give him the instructions and leave him alone. Do not make yourself responsible for his safety. Just tell him. This is what it came with. You can use it or not. Do not get involved in his truck setup.

RE: Wax Question

The Mequires Cleaner wax I use says the same thing. I have been using it on Travel Trailers, Cars, and trucks for more than 15 years. My TTs always have looked like new. As have my vehicles. The decals never fade, or crack. I wouldn't use it if it ever hurt anything. But it doesn't. BTW. There aren't too many chemicals that do not have Petroleum Distillates, or are not Petroleum based. Do you go right over the decals with it or avoid them? Wax right over them. It protects them, and keeps them looking like new as well. Do be gentle on them if you use an electric, or air buffer. don't want to burn them, or the TT. Hand buffing is best.

RE: Campsite Liability - insurance issues

Maybe its different in NC ?? But any vehicle I ever bought and financed the Insurance comp required FULL coverage ! None of "just what state law required"... It does have full coverage when hooked to the TV. All the finance company is interested in, is recouping their money. They do that thru Comp, and collision. So my TT has it's own comp, and collision. But it only has liability while hooked to the TV. Liability only covers what the TT does to someone else's property. So the finance company don't care about that. And since the TT won't run into any one's property while parked. It doesn't need it. But a limb CAN fall on it, or someone could run into it on site. So it has comp, and collision.

RE: Campsite Liability - insurance issues

when you rent a motel room, are you liable for accidents in there? bumpyI can guarantee if an ember goes up off your campfire and burns your neighbors $500,000.00 Prevost to the ground your going to be sued. The judge will decide whether or not your liable and I don't think "renting" will be a factor in his decision. And I wouldn't be surprised if you got sued if you were smoking in bed and burnt the motel down. Wouldn't they have to prove it came from my fire? and then there is. You parked in a area you knew would have campfires. So it's up to you to use reasonable care. Shouldn't have parked beside a fire.Like I said, the judge gets to determine if you're liable. And if that happens, you better hope the insurance co. decides you're covered. I WON'T BE. Because I don't have any. All I have is what is required by law, and my loan company. The TT has liability as long as it is hooked to the TV. None when not, and of course. It has comp, and collision all the time. But judge. I didn't even have a fire. It was his. Prove me wrong. BTW. that is just about the stupidest scenario I have ever heard. Much like the RVer that tried to sue McDonalds because he ran into the sign. Beyond stupid.

RE: Weight distribution

You can also just give them a ruler. Have them measure to see if the front comes back down, or just stays the same, and the rear goes up. You know the front won't come down.

RE: dogs in national park campgrounds

Was at Buck Hill in the NC mountains. People beside of us went to town, and there was Fido sitting on their inside table barking his fool head off. Did not stop until they got back. Camp host was looking for them. At Lakewood in Myrtle Beach. People beside of us had a sweet quiet dog. UNTIL they left. Then "Coco" barked his fool head off, and they stayed gone for 10 hours. And THEN on the second day. These "Dog Lovers" did it again, 4th of July. Fireworks every where. Poor dog scared nearly to death. Barked and cried, and repaid them for what they did to him. He destroyed the inside of their new first trip camper. When they opened the door to go in, No screen left on the door, beds were ripped apart, and curtain pulled down. And they DESERVED it and more. Does Coco bark? Yep, and a lot more. I love dogs. Have had some great dogs, sweet as sugar. I loved every one of them too much to take camping, and lock up in a RV. That's just mean.

RE: Things I have learned from these forums

Oh I know... if I didn't reserve my camp sites for the season at least a six months to year in advance, it's my fault for not planning far enough ahead. Everyone else knows exactly what they're doing a year from now down to the hour and can plan accordingly with perfect precision. I know that is satire. But true as well. We reserve our beach site a year in advance, Because if we don't, we can't go. But the thing is. IF we decide to go else where, or something comes up. We can always cancel. Got to have options

RE: Things I have learned from these forums

Don't forget: Government-run anything is socialism and pure evil, but I use Medicare and respect forest rangers and police.What about the corollary to that - Everything the Government does/buys is needed, honest, forthright, and they never waste your money. Now that right there is funny. I don't care who you are

RE: Campsite Liability - insurance issues

Does this also mean you can sue them for trespassing? Seems it should go both ways.

RE: Stabilizer and leveling

Yes raise both wheels with leveling blocks. The stabilizers are just that stabilizers. You do not want to life the camper with them

RE: When to replace tires on trailer?

Yep. Get them off. And buy 5. The spare is as old as the tires on the ground. No tire that old should be used for a spare

RE: Drawers in a Travel Trailer

camper drawers are built to stay shut. In 30 years of towing campers. I have yet to have a drawer, OR cabinet door open.Apparently you haven't driven on the roads in PA too much. I have driven in PA, not a camper though, and I have towed campers down washboard dirt roads, and pot hole filled back roads, I have turned corners, and had the TT leaning to a somewhat scary angle. Still haven't had a drawer, or cabinet open. However all the campers we have had. Had drawers that you actually had to work at opening. they have little lips on the front, and you have to pick the drawer up, and over to open it. Are not all RV drawers made that way? If not. Y'all got ripped off. If you get these drawers shut, they will not open accidentally. So I 'm wondering. asking of no one in particular. Could it be operator error. Cause If we don't get ours shut all the way, If they don't drop into the catch. they open easily. We check them before we head out.No. Ours are that way and we don't have any problems. But - lots of RV drawers are not made that way. :) I guess they are just standard on the "Entry Level" campers. :B Not having them would be a deal breaker.

RE: That accident sway video ... question

OK that video that is making the rounds here. I'm sure most have watched it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INyiMA3hfto&feature=youtu.be This is 3 or 4th time this video has been posted on this forum and has many remarks. So makes me wonder. I've towed several trailers over the years and about 35 years of towing freight trailers, but they are a different type of set up. Our latest travel trailer came with a very cheap "Ezy lift" hitch. 8,000 pound trailer and I use 1,000 WDH bars. Trailer just follows along, no problems. I was going to upgrade to better hitch, but it's very low on the shopping list. Last friction sway bar that I used was probably around year 2000. I have never had a sway problem. All my set ups have always had at least 10% "reserve capacity" or the percent distance between what the max rating is on something and how much weight (or stress) I actually put on it. I don't like stressing anything to the max or even close to it, maybe just me. I'm at 13% tongue weight. I usually drive 57-62, been a couple of times made it to 68 MPH by mistake as I've always had ST tires. Biggest sway I get is from big tour buses, as they pass when I get a slight wiggle as I catch their "bow wave" So here is the question... Have you ever had the type of problem that the guy did in the video? I wonder if I've only been lucky up to this point? Thing is. IF you set your TT / hitch up correctly, You won't have that kind of sway. IF a TT sways WITHOUT sway control. It is set up wrong. Pure and simple. A TT , and hitch has to be setup correct enough that is will not sway in normal driving. AFTER the TT / WDH is right. Then, and only then add sway control. Sway control is not designed to keep the TT from swaying in normal driving. It is designed only to help control the sway once it has been induced by an emergency maneuver. Like dodging a accident, deer, or anything like that. My TT does NOT sway with out a sway bar. I have forgotten to attach my sway bar, and did not know it until I got home. Foutunatly I did not have a emergency to dodge, and didn't need to jerk the wheel. I use the sway bar just incase. That is what it is for.
