RE: Hit a tree in the rv park

No traveling companion to help guide you back? My wife always guides me so I don't hit trees, tables, posts or back off a cliff.

RE: time for new shoes...

The truck in my signature just got new shoes a few months ago. Cooper Discoverer AT3, same size as yours. My TT weighs 5500 - 6000 lbs depending on the trip. I replaced with original size (P265/65x18). The Coopers have a higher weight rating than the Michelins do. 2604 vs 2469 lbs.

RE: Dog DNA Testing

From Ancestory.com? Just found out my German Shepard isn't german after all but instead an Irish Setter. Had to trade in his Lederhosen for an Irish Kilt!

RE: Awning strap replacement

One person on each arm to open or close it w/o a strap. Any camping supply/RV dealer will probably have replacements.

RE: So knowing I need tires

The only benefit to bias ply is the cording is not steel so when it comes apart it does not beat on the RV as bad. 1700? is that a 205-14? I would probably go 215-14 for the 1870 rating. Exactly what I did. Went from 205-14 to 215-14 for that very reason.

RE: slow down, or speed up

Tap the camper brake controller or speed up a bit but only momentarily.

RE: Need some advice

Forget the Laramie Pkg. All the extras it includes takes away from the available payload of a Tradesman or an SLT.

RE: recommendation on new tires for my f150

Were I you. I would go to the Cooper Discoverer Plus tires. They have a max psi of 50, and a load rating of 2601lb. more than enough for any 150. I have used them for years. And while the Goodyears will let the TT move around a little. the Coopers will settle it down. They are great for towing. I have used Michelins. Goodyears, Goodrich, and all are more expensive than the Coopers, and the Coopers will tow better, and last longer. X2

RE: Stupid mistake nearly cost me

Your chains are that tight? My safety chains are loose whether there is tension on the bars or not. I have never, ever seen my safety chains under any kind of tension. you called them safety chains but did you really mean the weight distribution bar chains?

RE: Had an oh **** moment!

I could never understand using roto chocks in place of regular tire chocks. I have 4 very heavy duty heavy rubber chocks that I use & the camper has never moved with them in place. I've had the yellow hard plastic ones but these heavy duty commercial chocks work much better & don't require retightening as do x-chocks or roto-chocks. I bought them from "Tractor Supply"

RE: Disintegrated vent, Warning about using vent cushion/inserts

These original vent lids just simply get brittle with age. Better quality lids are available as replacements.

RE: Propane sensor going off

I just replaced one that was going off sporadically. Found that the recommended replacement date was Oct 2014. Replaced it & all is good.

RE: Difference between Jayco and Keystone, Need some quick advice

I had a Jayco & can tell you that 2 yr warranty means squat. After 1 yr, I had water damage to the front 5 ft of floor. In building my TT, Jayco set the outer walls on top of the floor instead of covering the edge of the floors thereby allowing any water (rain) running down the outside walls to be soaked into the edge of the floor. I contacted the dealer & factory & was asked to provide photos of the damage. Repeated phone calls over several months got me nowhere, only "We're working on it & we'll get back to you on this". That was 8 yrs ago & I'm still waiting for a response, haha. Finally sold it "as is". Another issue I had with it was the black tank was directly under the shower so they figured it was simpler, easier & cheaper to let the tub drain straight down into the black tank. Imagine my surprise when taking my morning shower only to have the black tank back up into the tub with me standing in it. Jayco finally agreed to replumb it & add a second gray tank just for the tub. At this point there was no way of running a drain pipe from the tub to the existing gray tank. They added a second gray tank with a new vent pipe & and it's own dump valve. Moved on to a Dutchmen. It is lightyears better than the Jayco was. I would NEVER even consider another Jayco.

RE: Getting waste to flow up into a waste tote.

Get a suction hose, suck on the end of it to get it flowing, then put that end into the tote. JUST KIDDING!!!!!!
