RE: First travel trailer, what should I buy?

What we think about your camper is not important. YOU have to pick the Trailer that fits your needs, and your wants the best. You have to get the one you want. Because YOU are the only one you have to please. Just take your time and pick wisely

RE: Open Road TT?

I bet if you ask him. He will show you around inside the trailer. RV owners are usually VERY proud of what they have, and will show it off at every opportunity.

RE: high air pressure - @ 150 psi

IF it is purging at 150 psi. that is the psi the safety valve is set at. IF you want lower psi. You would need to get a safety valve that is set to the psi you want. It pops off when it hits the set pressure

RE: Tow capasity

Looking for a new TT, my 2010 Chevy Tahoe can tow 8,200 lbs. Can I safely tow a TT with a dry weight of 7,000 lbs? We are a family of 4 so I would say we would have about 600-800 lbs of gear not leaving much room to spare. Thanks. you can. But the family will have to drive separately, and carry most of the gear.

RE: RV sale negotiation

IF they are going to have it delivered from another dealer. You will need to agree on the price first. Of course you need to keep the refusal option on the table in case there is something wrong with it. Just make sure you are happy with the price. Once it arrives. You will pay what you agreed on.

RE: How does Anderson WDH compare to others?

You do know. That IF you hide sway under a special really expensive hitch to control the trailer. You have other problems that may someday jump out and bite you someday. Find the reason for the sway, and fix it.

RE: How does Anderson WDH compare to others?

Truth is. For that TT. Just about any WDH will do the job, From a Reese to an EZ-Lift. I use a EZ-Lift for my 31' TT. I had a Reese for my 27' TT. Both do the same thing.

RE: Coachmen Apex vs Jayco Jay Flight

Our APEX also has the entry door into the bathroom. Didn't know how much we would like it. Flash! WE LOVE it! You don't have to walk all the way thru the TT to get to the bathroom. When the little kids are really sandy, like at the beach. We rinse them off just outside the bathroom door, and just set them up in to the bathroom. It is GREAT! You still have the other door for normal entry. But the bathroom door is just SOOO handy. Only con I can find. The awning does not go back far enough to cover it.

RE: Standard for WD Hitches with Sway Control

Back in 2005 when I purchased my first trailer besides the Hensley Arrow the Reese Dual Cam hitch was the standard used by many on this forum. 10 years later and I now have a different truck and trailer but the same hitch. I am having head aches getting this set-up to tow the way I want. If I consider switching hitches is there a new standard that most TT members are using besides the Hensley? I am sorry but the Hensley is not in my budget. Besides, if I were to spend that much on a hitch I would really consider trading my TT for a fiver. My current set-up is a 2008 RAM 2500 Cummins pulling a Raptor 3018. Could be that you just need new spring bars. IF the Tt you had earlier was lighter than the new one. The spring bars were a lighter weight as well, and will not transfer the needed weight for the new TT. A heavier set of bars may be all you need to get the TT to tow like you want it to.

RE: Coachmen Apex vs Jayco Jay Flight

I like my APEX. It's about 3 years old now with no problems. Something to think about. The APEX side walls are made with AZDEL. It has no wood to rot in it, and is lighter with a better R insulation value.

RE: Policy changes for 2016 at Ocean Lakes

Got my OL newsletter today. From what it says. They are changing some rules, and will be really serious about the security beginning this summer. starting with the $100 fine for open containers, and $100 fine for cruising after quite time. A real step in the right direction. Glad to see it. Said something about too loud stereos on carts as well. This Will make it a much more family friendly place. Great to see they are listening to their customers, and taking corrective action. I find it interesting that a campground has the legal authority to impose a monetary "FINE" against an individual w/o "due process". I would think the only thing they could do would be to eject you from the park or say forbid you to operate say your golf cart, etc. Larry Thing is. When you rent a cart, and at OL when you bring in your own cart. You sign what amounts to a contract. That you will abide by the Campground rules. And that you agree to the penalties for not doing so. Once you sign that document. They can charge the fine. Now IF you don't want to sign. You don't get a cart. Same for open containers. Follow the rules you agreed to or suffer the consequences. And you can look at this way. Their park, their rules. Agree, and stay, or disagree, and leave. And Trust me. they won't miss you for a second. Some one is waiting at the office for your spot. Something else to consider. South Carolina has their own set of rules. They do things their own way. Not sure. But I think you can still pay your speeding tickets on the spot. You could a few years ago. BTW. At Pireteland. It is a $75 fine and confiscation of the cart.

RE: Can't believe folks connecting up sewer without gloves

I didn't wear gloves when I put the stuff in the tank either. Why would it be necessary when I take it out? There you go. Best and most true answer yet. Worse thing you can get on your hands while dumping, is the blue stuff

RE: Can't believe folks connecting up sewer without gloves

If you dump the grey after the black there is no real stuff to worry about. Quick rinse and go. Yeah. I'm thinkin it is as clean as it can get after 30 gal of fresh water runs thru it.

RE: Can't believe folks connecting up sewer without gloves

I learned after just a few trips to leave the connectors attached to the hose. So the only thing I now touch is the out side of the hose. I just attach the connectors to their fittings, and I'm done. However. I only dump at sites with FULL hookups. That way I can take my time, and do it right. No I do NOT use dump stations. When we dry camp on the Blue ridge Parkway. We use the CG facilities. I will not go to a dump station. I'm too LAZY, and, It's my TT, I use it the way I want.

RE: Difference of Air Bags over WD hitch?

Like K says. The air bags will level the TV. But the steering / front axle will still be light, and would in all likelihood cause sway. That is what a WDH actually does. It returns steering control to the driver by returning lost weight to the steering axle. That it levels the TV, and TT is a side benefit. Air bags don't do any thing to help return steering control.

RE: OCEAN LAKES SET TO BUILD BIG ADDITION TO WATER PARK.

Yeah. Lots of multi story homes there. They have much more than burgers at that "stand"! Wasn't a cut. The laundry is there as well

RE: FIBERGLASS DELAMINATION

Peel back the fiberglass???? Have you ever worked with fiberglass??? Fiberglass is rigid, as a general rule it does not bend easy, or at all. It will break before it bends. You may be able to pull it off the wood a 1/8" or so. But unless you break it. You will not move it far enough to get resin behind it with out the proper tools, and even if you could, how are you going to hold it together while the resin dries.? It will prolly have to be cut off past where it has turned loose, reglassed, and gel coated. Then sanded smooth, and buffed out. Will take a while to do it right. Another option is to replace the entire panel. Were I you. I would let the pros do it. It is a pretty major undertaking.
