RE: Tip the RV transport driver?

I'm sure the dealerships don't tip the drivers. Are you expecting the driver to back the rv into a difficult location? If yes- I might tip a $20.

RE: TT Awning Replacement

Hello all. I am new to this forum, and plan on using it very actively for great information. I am glad to see that there is a very large group of people that use it regularly so I always know information will be current. I have a question regarding my travel Trailer awning. I just received a 2003 Komfort 25TBS from my parents. They no longer found themselves using it, so they handed it down to my wife and I. It needed a little work. I replaced the tail lights, sealed up a couple areas on the exterior side walls and repaired the fridge myself. It still needs the roof sealed and painted, but living in Washington State it is hard to do right now. I need to wait for the weather to warm up. But also living in Washington State, I a working awning is a MUST. The one that was on it was very weather damaged. I have already cut it away from the awning frame and have the frame still installed on the trailer. I contacted my local RV Service Shop and was quoted $350-$500 plus $125 an hour to install and to expect it be a 2 hour job. I am not worried about the install as I can do this myself. I am more curious about the price. To me, the price seems a little steep compared to fabrics I have found online. What do you all think of that price quoted? Also, where is a good place to go to purchase fabric online? And, what is a standard type of fabric? I saw there are multiple types. Thank you all! The price sounds about right. Its a robust plastic like material. I also suspect even just the fabric to be difficult to ship.

RE: Where can I drop camper in middle of trip?

For that short of time- I'd leave it at whatever campground you were at previously. Some county parks may have a parking lot that you can use also.

RE: Taking the Golf Cart question

This should allow your tailgate to remain open will towing. https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories-and-Parts/Equal-i-zer/EQ90-02-4500.html

RE: weight of trailer and truck size

Short answer- No. That's too much trailer and not enough payload.

Get a sealtest done.

RE: CAT Scale numbers (still a newbie to towing)

You are not that far over the rawr. I'd try to adjust the hitch.

RE: SMART TV IS IT WORTH THE CHANGE ?

I wouldn't buy another non-smart tv. They will be obsolete eventually.

RE: Revised GVWR after axle upgrade??

bossTT: My frame is made by Lippert and the tag from them is very readable with SN, PO#, etc. It also says it is specifically for the 264L with rear cargo rack (which I have removed). How would I research the basic load rating of the frame itself as you suggest? Call Lippert with your frame number. I've had to call them before and they were decent enough to work with. Customer Service Email: customerservice@lci1.com Phone: 574-537-8900 That is what I would do.

RE: Revised GVWR after axle upgrade??

I reach out to the frame manufacturer (BAL?). Its a standard frame. It will have a rating.

RE: Mobile RV Tech for Pressurized Leak Test in Edmonton AB Area Update

I have used sealtech before. It was under $200. Well worth it. Ps. The unit could pass the pressure test and still have a soft floor. The leak may have been fixed, but the damaged caused by the leak not repaired. I'd also question buying an rv without seeing it for this reason.

RE: New soon to be owner with some questions

Sun will damage the RV's exterior decals. The decals will start to wrinkle and shrink. 2 years is a lot of sun exposure. I use a cover to slow this process. The low holding tank drain valves may become a problem when using full hookup sites. The dump stations are a hole in the ground with curbs; however, at campsites they are often a PVC pipe a few inches off the ground. The height difference between the PVC pipe and your drain valve may not provide enough slope. I wouldn't worry about it hitting the pavement too much.

RE: First Time Travel Trailer Purchase

Thanks. I have a 1/2 ton truck so I can tow something heavier if needed. You need to go by payload rating and not tow rating. This is a common mistake.

RE: Hayes Sway Master Elec Sway Control. Does it really Work?

Can you just fill the fresh water tank?

RE: Towing with Tailgate down / Hitch Extender

18" is long enough for the hitch ball to be past the end of the tailgate on my ram. Literally no way for the trailer to hit.

RE: Towing with Tailgate down / Hitch Extender

I recommend spending $12 at a CAT scale to understand how much capacity you actually have. I suspect "on the edge of being over payload" is underestimating the situation. You should check with the hitch companies about using WD with an extension. I did. I even stated that I used a CAT scale in the sentence directly prior.

RE: Towing with Tailgate down / Hitch Extender

ok, so I never did anything for my RZR hauling needs. I now need to get something setup before Memorial day. I know that the Torklift will be the strongest way to go but at $1500, it's about 3X the cost of going with the Reese Titan 2.5" hitch with 24" extension. From what I can see the 24" extension is rated for 8000lb with WDH which is within my trailer rating of 6000lbs dry ~7000lbs wet Curt also has a similar setup with similar specs for just over $400 total since I will only use this setup 1-2 times a year I prefer to save a grand and go with the titan, unless there are safety concerns with this setup? then by all means my only option is the Torklift. How much distance do you need? The 18" link I posted should give you enough leave the tailgate down without a weight reduction and its $130.

RE: Brand New - TT Weight question

Frame, suspension, wheels are different. It may have plenty of power, but that's not the only thing that matters. Does the old explorer ride the same? The new frame is more rigid (not that the old was weak), the tires have much stronger sidewalls due to much lower aspect ratio, suspension significantly upgraded. Of course there is more than just the better power, there are numerous other advantages (especially getting rid of that weak POS transfer case on the old ones like mine). You forgot the brakes too, huge improvement on the new Explorer. Hint as alluded above there is one thing worse than when it was a 7,200# rating , I really doubt any of the several people above who made such strong comments on how bad it is can figure that regression out - but I'll just throw that out that there as there is one I'm aware of (manageable actually). No: I cannot see how anyone can justify this advertised huge decrease in capacity, unless you have slavish belief in marketing numbers. It is capable, unless something silly done like cramming 7 adults in too. Lookup SAE J2807. It may have been over rated previously by Ford.
