They will tell you what you want to hear, as long as they get the sale that they are looking for. After you buy it, good luck when your engine and transmission on your TW start giving you trouble:S

RE: Backing the TT into the Space

Well, today we took our TT to the empty college parking lot to practice backing into a "campsite". John took first at the wheel and I spotted, then we switched and I took the wheel and he spotted. Two hours later neither of us was very successful at getting our little 21' TT into the "campsite" :E I tried the "scoop" several times but just could not get it right. We both continued to jackknife and then couldn't figure out how to get the TT into the site without doing so. Frustrated, but laughing, we agreed it's going to take practice, practice, practice! Without someone to teach us the right way, or to tell us what we're doing wrong, we figure we'll be practicing for a LONG time :R After a bit of discussion on the way home, we concluded that we think we're turning the steering wheel too much. I just finished watching several you tube videos, but bottom line, I believe it's just going to take DOING IT until we get it right. We have reservations next week at a state park not too far from where we are in FL, but John is thinking we should cancel them until we get this backing up thing down. I'm thinking we should go and use that experience as part of our practicing. We're still working on the best option for easy access into the trailer for John. Yes it is true the shorter the trailer the harder it is to back it in. And keep in mind to turn the steering wheel slowly, as for me, I sometimes have problems, sometimes I get it in in one shot and sometimes not. Practice, practice, practice.. I am still learning with every trip that we make. Good luck and enjoy your camping days!! Kennedy>>>

Leveling Travel Trailer >>>

Good evening--- I have a question regarding leveling your travel trailer when you arrive at your campsite. Do I need to have my slides out before I try leveling my T.T. side to side? Or it does not matter? I hear other people doing it with the slides in, and others do it with the slides out. Is there is a right way and a wrong way?:h Thank you in advance!!

Are you trying to connect an antenna on your travel trailer to a TV in your house or your house antenna to a TV in your travel trailer? No Tom I am trying to buy a travel trailer antenna, hook it up to the house , and then connect it to my house T.V.:@
kennyd63 11/30/14 11:29am Travel Trailers

Good day!!! The D.W. would like me to hook up an H.D. antenna to our house using a travel trailer antenna. is this is possible, or will this work? I am trying not to run a cable from the existing antenna from the house. I believe this will cost more money down the road. All feed back will be appreciated..:S Thank you, in advance...

RE: Airstream>>

So, IIRC, the original post had to do with trading again. First thing I would say is that y'all are taking a beating on the dollars doing this so often. Why do you want to change and why does she love it? Maybe you need to sit down and list separately the things you each like/dislike about this one and maybe a second list of what your "ideal" trailer would have. Seems like there is a lack of communication here. Consider the kind of camping/traveling you do, how many people, other things that could effect a choice. Are you also having to change tow vehicles? What is your current tow vehicle and would you have to change to find what you like or do you really prefer a MH? Strongly suggest neither of you budge on this until you can come to an agreement ahead of time on your wants and needs. My cousin and his DW started maybe 10 years ago with something like a 27' Outback. Pretty soon he felt the urge to move up to a Class A. Almost before it needed to be washed, he felt the need to move to a different Class A. I believe they're on #4 now and seeing it, you'd expect a country singer to step out. It's gorgeous! But his DW is miserable with it, they truly cannot get into virtually any "campgrounds" and end up at a KOA or similar. The campgrounds that have sites plenty long enough are either on a little narrow road with overhanging trees that they can't clear or the campground itself doesn't have room to navigate the road to get to the site. They take it out maybe 3 or 4 times a year. They don't "camp", which was their original objective....they use it to get from Point A to Point B and it's their living space while they're there. But with their group, they have the biggest and the best. Certainly not saying this applies in your case, but my dear cousin has issues and having something new and different makes him happy for a very short time and then it's time to move on. Just think you need some communication on what you really want and your objective and go from there. Good luck and happy camping. I think it boils down to expense. I have to admit that I am always looking for something different and AS is something that it calls my attention. We did owned a Motor home before and she did not like it. Why? Well she seen it as a money pit tires, this and that and so on everything was money. I still like the motorhomes. Well like they say happy wife happy life , maybe for her as for me maybe some day I will buy an AS before I pass on.

RE: Airstream>>

She claims that she loves our current T.T. End of debate. ;) You are right, end of debate. Wife is always right. No matter what I point out to her about the AS she feels that is not worth the expense. And some one else asked how often we go camping? We go to other states like 2 or 3 times max per season. Because we have another T.T. which is a P/T up in Michigan we go up there 98.9% of the entire season. And is only her and I 3 Yorkshires, and a Labradoodle. End of story maybe some day I be able to own one maybe not. Thank you all for your input in this topic. Kennedy >>>

RE: Airstream>>

Thank goodness for fiberglass and rubber roofs. Are you kidding? I would much rather not have fiberglass sides and rubber roofs. That is one beauty of an Airstream.... no rubber roof to wear out or sidewall delam. Torsion axles are another. Proven longevity another. Aluminum Airstreams will outlast (outside of damage and anything can get damaged even rubber and fiberglass) any other trailer; on a life cycle cost basis is perhaps the least expensive trailer available for it's size and quality proven by real world experience with two thirds of all Airstreams ever made since the 1930's still in use; and with the timeless design wont go out of style in a couple years nor do they have gaudy graphics that seem to be the norm for so many modern trailers today. Give me that Airstream any day. At least it will last longer than the payments.JMtandem, How well the AS stands to hail damage. I had a guy that told he owns an AS and the downsize to it is when it hail what is your opinion on this ?

RE: Airstream>>

Make sure you can stand up in the Airstream. I cannot especially with the rounded roof line.I am 5'5" so I should be ok..
kennyd63 10/19/14 08:51am Travel Trailers

I been thinking about trading our Minnie Winnie for an airstream. But the DW is not happy about it. She claims that she loves our current T.T. This is creating a conflict between both of us. Its not pretty, we have been thru a T.T. Motor home,and this new one in the last year. She says there is something wrong with me. That no matter what I buy I am never content. Is she right? Please advise.. Thank you, Kennedy>>:(

Winterizing T.T.

Good Morning- I have seen many videos on You tube about how to winterize your T.T. Some do not tell you to leave the faucets open after using the antifreeze ( pink ), Some do. Does it really matter?:h

What is wrong with my slides?

Good noon... You ladies and gents probably heard of this before. In the spring we open the slides, and leave them open all season long till is time to winterized and call it quit for the season. Well this year we did our yearly routine on winterizing, well it was time to close the slides and to my surprise the slides will not close. So I read in the manual and it said that if the battery was dead to try to give it a jump with my Towing vehicle. I did and nothing, so the second thing they suggest it was to jump the motor of the slides. WOW it worked I was able to close the 3 slides. Now is there anyone out there that may know what may be causing the problem, or do I need I new motor?:? Thank you in advance>>> Kennedy>>>

RE: Flat tire!!

You should not reuse the tire that went flat. I wouldn't even trust it as a spare. FastEagle Fast Eagle, so what are you suggesting is to buy a new tire? Please advise. Thank you, Kennedy

RE: Flat tire!!

wmoses it was the road assistant company...On my way back from New Orleans I had a flat tire on the T.T. I was not able to take the lugs off ,so I call for service. They sent someone, he took the flat tire off and replaced it with the spare. He used a battery drill with an 1/2 inch socket on it. ... To my surprise the lug nuts where loose, here I was thinking that this drill torqued the lugs to specs and that everything was ok. This tire could of came off at any time. What kind of service people are this?:M Who is this "they" who sent someone? A drill with a socket will troque the nut to some unknown torque which, in your case, was clearly insufficient. In other words this is a lesson learned - battery operated drill should not be used anywhere hnear a wheel. Even an electric drill. Maybe one of those compressed air drivers with torque sticks in a pinch, but I don't like them. I prefer a torque wrench or tighten by hand.
