RE: After-market mirrors

I'm using a pair of CIPA slip-on mirrors on my F150.

RE: Anyone with experience towing with a Suburban

'03 1500 5.3? Probably has a 4L60E transmission. Get the biggest, baddest transmission cooler you can fit in it.

RE: toasted wheel bearing

You'll need to support the frame to unload both axles. And it's good practice to replace the "U" bolts and not re-use the old ones. Brake wire splicing connections will have to be waterproof. Having an air gun helps.

RE: What we got

Congrats on the new truck! Ford recommends driving it for 1,000 miles before towing (to seat the rear end gears.) Hopefully you'll enjoy towing with it as much as I do with my EB.

RE: Propane tanks cover

My hard plastic tank cover is free-floating. Haven't lost it in 2 years. I did lose a single 20# soft cover off my pop-up though.

RE: DW is now annoyed with me.....

DW used to work in a fulfilment center, they called the stuff "booger glue."

RE: Considering Purchasing a Used Travel Trailer

That 9000# tow capacity is the smaller part of the towing equation. More important is the payload capacity of your SUV. My guess is that with a family of 5 along with camping gear you'll be close to your max payload without even hooking up the trailer. Buying used can be OK or it can be a nightmare. ANY signs of water damage (wrinkled walls, soft floor, mouldy smells ect) means RUN from it. Even if there's no water damage there's always tires and brakes to consider when buying used.

RE: Odetah Campground

DW & I did Odetah a few years ago and thought it was a nice cg. We don't do casinos but we did visit Mystic Seaport, the Nautilus museum, shopping, took a schooner ride, and a few more attractions. We're middle age and no kids but we thought Odetah was worth a trip in itself. Yes, we had a "graywater only" site but we can easily go a week before filling the black tank. If needed, a pumper service is also available. Never been to Lake George, we prefer more primitive camping if we're in the Adirondacks.

RE: To slide (out) or not to slide out??

We'd never go back to a trailer w/o a slide. Without a slide it can get too tight when you're cooped up on a rainy day. And knock on wood, no slide issues in 10 years.

RE: F-150 to tow a light 5th - do I need HD cargo option?

Hmmmmm..... Seems I read somewhere the HD / max payload F150 had a different, heavier frame than the standard and Max Tow F150's.

RE: Anyone had their rig weighed by authorities in these areas?

Well, eons ago dear old dad got weighed and ticketed in his pickup truck hauling a ditch digger. He was over on his registration weight and it cost him $1000. The trooper said if he were over on his axles and / or GVW the fine would have been a lot higher.

RE: What if the Pats are found guilty in Deflategate?

Penalties? Maybe something along the lines of NASCAR - Head coach fined $100K and / or suspended for x-number of games.

RE: Is a house battery necessary if plugging in at campground?

If you never camp w/o AC power you could buy a lawn & garden battery. It's still enough to activate the brakes.

RE: Ultra light TT

I believe every manufacturer has a lightweight brand.

RE: WDH - anyone ever told by dealer not to use?

Some pop-up trailers have a "C"-channel frame and aren't strong enough for a WD hitch.

RE: 2 step to 3 step

The 2-step unit on our HTT was blind-bolted under the floor. I cut off the step but left a lot of the bracket intact, then bolted on a 3-step unit from CW on.

RE: Does your level change as slide goes out??

The design of the electric stabs that allows them to compensate for uneven ground is the cause of the tilting. Basically you have one center point on each stab that form a pivot on the long axis of the trailer. This allows the trailer to rock side to side and you see it as tilting when the slide goes out. Short of ditching the whole system you can try putting one scissors jack under the slide side of the frame and see if that helps.

RE: Starcraft Questions

Well, we were very satisfied with our '05 Starcraft hybrid TT. Can't help you whether the 255RS is aluminum or not.

RE: Patio chair carry bags

For stuff I put in the truck bed that I don't want to get wet I use vinyl canoe "dry bags" left over from our primitive camping days. They're available in various sizes, my medium bag easily holds 2 pair of snowshoes and poles. A cheaper way may be to just wrap them in the vinyl tablecloth or a plastic tarp.
