Some lugs, for some stupid reason, have a thin cover of metal over them that is chromed. If this is the case you should be able to cut and pry that off using a dremal tool and pliers/screwdriver. Once that is off the lug underneath will be actual steel and a smaller socket should fit it.schlep1967 you where right I removed the thin metal cover that was over the nut and re-tight the nuts.( Before going on the trip ) Also I would like to thank everyone that helped out. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner I do not get on social media when I go camping, unless I have an emergency issue. Respectfully Kennedy

Well I think I am in a pickle. While I was d checking my wheels logs to make sure they where tight, I notice that 2 of the wheel logs on one wheel (Not the thread ) Just the nuts are striped this are made of aluminum. My question is if I do get a flat will roadside assistant have the proper tools to remove this tire?:M

RE: Please Travel Safe this Memorial Day Weekend

We usually go to our own place up in Michigan for holiday weekends. This year we decided to go to a public campground and join the rest of the campers out there and see how it goes.:B

Water coming out of the city hook up?

I was getting my trailer ready for the Memorial weekend holiday by getting the antifreeze out of system. Why when I turn on the water pump I have water coming out of the city hook up valve, and the water pump never shuts off?:S Thank you in advance to all
kennyd63 05/23/16 09:57am Travel Trailers

When dry camping and you need to use the furnace to keep warm / or to get the chill out in the morning, living in Illinois in the month of May weather is unstable especially at night. Will I be able to use my furnace without been able be hook up shore power?:h I am trying to get a camping spot for the Memorial day weekend but they told me all they have is a Rustic site ( no power or water) And finally has anyone stayed lately at Pine campgrounds in Amboy IL What do you think about it? Thank you all for your advise>> Kennedy,

RE: Winnie Minnie vs Jayco White Hawk

We own a 2014 Minnie 2351 DKS would NOT trade it for anything else at this point, Had a Jayco before was also good, but we are more impressed with this unit. Very happy with it especially the DW, good luck with your decision. :B
kennyd63 04/23/16 03:57am Travel Trailers

Good noon- I have a question, since I lost my original awning to heavy rain and the tube is bent the DW decide not to replace it,since this is the second awning that we have lost do to weather do to my negligence with other travel trailers. Our Destination travel trailer we have, we have not moved it from its original spot in over 9 years so I was wondering if I can buy one of those sun setter awning that people buy for their homes and install it to the T.T?:h The manual type of course.( Remember, this unit does not leave the property ) ( Yes we have insurance and insurance wants the dealer that is going to do the job to take pictures and send them to state farm. And the only nearest dealers claim that they are too busy and if they are to replace the awning they will have to bring the D.T.T. into the shop which means, I will have to pay for someone to tow it there and back and reset it on blocks since the unit is too heavy for my truck to tow.):M Thank you in advance Any other ideas are welcome

RE: Tires

The tires you put on your trailer MUST be rated to carry the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) of you trailer. You should not use "regular" passenger tires on your trailer. I doubt you can find LT (light truck) tires in the size (I'm guessing 14 or 15 inch wheels - probably ST205/75D14 ) that are on your trailer....so you will have to stick with ST tires. Most all ST tires are made in China and have a shaky reputation. Many of us have had good luck with Maxxis 8008 tires. and yes...nitrogen is pretty much of a hype. I disagree.... I have 14 inch wheels and found a better rated LT tire.. however.. the op's tire size is still unknown at this time.. If the op would kindly post his tire size and TT gross weight we might better advise him. TexasChaps The size for my T.T tires are 205/75R14 However the sticker on the outside of the unit says GVWR 7,620LBS, and the sticker inside of the manual says GWVR 6,000LBS which one is correct?
kennyd63 03/16/16 07:34am Travel Trailers

Is it necessary to only by tires for T.T. Why can't I not buy regular tires for my T.T? Reason I am asking is that its seams that I am getting flat tires too often, 2 in one year. is that normal? This tires are fill with nitro air which I fill they are full of it. you get my drift. Thank you in advance..

RE: Has anyone got rear ended while on the highway?

Sorry about the rear ending......... Accidents are never fun regardless of when they happen Please clarify WHY you were 'standing to merge' :H Old- Biscuit traffic came to a stand still on the 295 while merging to the 95.

Has anyone got rear ended while on the highway?

kennyd63 11/01/15 09:07am Travel Trailers

I just got done winterizing our T.T. up in Michigan for the season. However I just remember that I forgot to leave the faucets open. I usually do, but this time I left them shut. Should this be a problem?:S Thank you in advance

RE: Road Atlas

I just ordered a new Garmin, we have AAA maps of the states, smartphones with all of that however I enjoy looking through the good old Rand Mc Nally book to get an overall view of the state and local area. I see there are different ones out there, some have the GPS co ordinates etc now. The electronics are fine but I can't travel without my torn up old map. What's out there now. What do you like. We love using the good old Rand Mc Nally book. We don't leave home without out it..:W

RE: Sold the trailer

Due to some personal mobility issues, we decided to sell the TT. The new owners just picked it up on Sunday. It has been an adventure but it was time to let it go. Just wanted to say thanks to all of you who make this a great forum. I have always appreciated the help and advice - especially the respectful attitude of the contributors. A few thoughts... Get a big enough truck. Swallow your pride and ask for help even if means somebody else backs it into that tight space Arrive before dark. Get fuel before it causes stress. Don't worry about MPG. Happy trails to one and all! bedell, thank you for the advise, I will take it into consideration. I hope all goes well with you. Kennedy >>>
