RE: Under body rust on a Brand New 5th Wheel?

Ours was delivered in the winter as well. I've wire brushed and painted all the metal I can with Rustoleum Rust Reformer and then a black enamel.

RE: Anybody Towing A Wide Body 5th Wheel With Short Bed?

I towed a Carrilite 102"wide body with a Megacab Dodge. Had a Pullrite Superglide. Combo worked great for turns, but the truck was maxed out on weights.

RE: air safe hitch

I know of several being used in the HDT world. The Binkley head is a proven design if maintained. The plate and suspension work great.

RE: Need 3" Sewer Hose Wrench That Actually Works

If going to Harbor Freight don't for get your 20% discount ticket and free flashlight ticket And your multi meter... Always get the free one. So handy and I give them to people that don't have a meter.

RE: Fiberglass vs. Aluminum

Fiberglass doesn't conduct heat or cold like aluminum does. Easier to heat and cool. With full body paint very easy to keep clean.

RE: Preferred disc brake Pads replacements... 8K

Most of the new semi trucks are equipped with ceramic pads. The ceramic shoes have proven to run cooler, reduce stopping distance, longer life.

RE: Torque wars continue in the diesels

So now you have a truck with the same HP and 2/3 the torque of a Big Rig over the road tractor. Have they- Ford-Dodge-Chevy increased the braking ability? Not with an exhaust brake, but with brake rotor diameter, larger calipers, stronger pistons in the calipers, etc? So you can tow 32000 lbs, but can you stop it? According to the SAE J2807, the truck only has to stop 3500lbs.

RE: Winterizing - Natchez, MS

It might dip into the low 30's several nights. There will be frost several mornings, but I would doubt there will be any period of time lasting longer than 4-5 hours of freezing temps.

RE: AIr Ride Seats

You can always buy a bigger truck... Fl-102 for instance!

RE: Feedback on current on-demand hot water heaters

Truma is the heater to go with. https://www.truma.com/us/en/products/truma-water-systems/truma-aqua-go-water-heater.html But you need to find an installer.

RE: Huge four-axle toy-hauler

That rig has 4 9k axles under it. New Horizons does have their Summit line which is more of a production line unit. The Majestic line though is how much money do you have and how much do you want to spend. As far as the length, our "DRV 44 Memphis" is 47' overall- front cap to rear cap- Pin to rear cap is 44'". It looks big, and it is limited to where we fit.

RE: Where do you mount the TST 507 series Repeater?

RE: Need advice choosing a hitch

There are several air ride hitches available. Trailer Saver, Air Safe, ET hitches, Comfort Ride, Hitch Crafter to name a few. The Escapee's forum has a large MDT/HDT group that can help you choose what will be best.
