Using TT as guest house

My father is flying in and spending a few nights at my home. I have firmly requested he sleeps in my TT. I figure he will use the bathroom in my house though. I have plenty of unused bedrooms and bathrooms in the house, but don’t have another bed setup (only sofas). The RV will be plugged in to electricity, the water tank will have some water. The TT has ducted A/C. I figure this is reasonable… can anyone else that has done this comment? (obviously) being an camper myself, I would prefer this- he is not an camper though.

RE: Looking to purchase my first travel trailer

In general, IMO, Jayco's have a good reputation. I own a keystone and have had zero problems though. The 2 year warranty would be nice.

RE: Question for the Hensley/ProPride people

They are expensive and difficult to align (hitching). Otherwise they are great. The ProPride is easier to hitch up, but IMO the owner (Sean) is not very helpful.

RE: Want USA made tires

Carlisle ST are made in the USA. They were made overseas for a short period of time, but are back in the states now.

RE: Tank gauges - how do they work?

I believe the "sensor" uses the liquid to close "the switch"... the same as those water alarms people place near water heaters. The problem is the "sensor". I assume this is just open conductors spaced apart. Any splash or high humidly would cause problems. There is an aftermarket tank sensor system that I've heard is very accurate.

RE: Thinking of buying new or used?

As others have said: It was likely towed over salty roads. Road salt is really hard on trailer frames. I wouldn't think it would be more then surface rust though.

RE: Extra Light Travel Trailer

If your tow rating is 3500 lbs, nearly every travel trailer is too heavy for you. Payload is the number you need to focus on, not tow rating.

RE: Salvage title

A lot of trailers are in floods. Most lake side camping spots ARE camping spots because they are in flood planes and an house could not be built.

RE: Ok, backing up a step.. Looking for advice part 2

$10k is not going to get you much. You need to keep this in mind or look at campers that are not travel trailers. Maybe an Hi-Lo would work? Pop-up would really be ideal for you. Maybe a seasonal campsite, where you don't need to tow? Look at autotrader for 1/2 ton trucks (F150, Sliverado 1500, Ram 1500) and see if you are willing to accept what you'll get for $4k-5k. And then, its going to be difficult to find a TT for $5k.

RE: Dodge ram payload

There's a whole ton of confusion in here. You truck has a payload of 1100 lbs, regardless what the tire sticker says. It's not 1100 lbs x 4. This is just plain bad information.

RE: Dodge ram payload

Biggest ram 1500 = lowest payload. The 20" wheels hurt the payload. My quad cab sport has a payload of 1600 lbs. Not all rams are that low.

RE: How to Greese Bearings?

I forgot to say that I was going to have my local RV dealer repack the bearings... but, they wanted $200 for all four!

How to Greese Bearings?

I've had my trailer 3 years now and (gasp) have not yet re-greased the bearings. Is there a step by step procedure on how to do this? It looks like the center of the hubs have grease zerks. I think they are ezlube axles, but not sure. Thanks

RE: No A/C plugged in to 15A at home

There might be an automotive style fill port, but you probably have a leak.

RE: Junk drawer?

Battery's, Fuses, Level, Tape Measure, Adjustable wrench, Bulbs, Hammer, Screw driver with various bits, electrical adapters, Tape, Change, Cleaning products (black streak remover, awning cleaner, holding tank chemicals), Lighters, fire starters and spare flash lights. Might be two junk drawers.

RE: Ram 1500 with starcraft 289bhs

1089 is what the factory rated your truck with based on the equipment in the truck. Let's say your loaded trailer weight is 8,000 lbs. for a travel trailer you need to figure 12-15% tongue weight. Your tongue weight will probably be in the 960-1200 lb range in the real world. This trailer needs a 3/4 ton truck or a HD Half ton truck. As equipped your ram doesn't have the payload to carry this tongue weight. Thanks! Jeremiah This is great information. I can tell you from experience (2011 ram with 1350 lbs payload)- it will tow fine, but I think its hard on the rear end. I can feel mine shutter when I am at max payload. I use a WD hitch and installed air bags. The truck sits level. Have you added any aftermarket accessories to the truck? Bed cover, running boards, tool box, etc? These will all take away from your payload number. Really, the trailer is too much for your truck; however, it would work for trips close to home and don't pack much in the truck.

RE: How windy of conditions will you still tow in

If it comes down to it, I just drive very slow... 20 mph slower then usual.
