RE: Tool Storage/Carrier repair

Yes, I used a pair of toggle or closet latches on my old chainsaw case that had broken tabs.

RE: Who's insurance pays

Why not just ask your insurance agent instead of internet lawyers?

RE: Newbies, Cape Cod w/ small Dog, mid-May

We've stayed at Sweetwater Forest a few times and are going back this year, but it's not near the water. Yes, bring your bikes. +1 for the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a paved multi-use trail that mostly follows an old rail bed (no hills.) If you're on the trail, stop at Arnolds in Eastham for lunch. I believe there are a few places you can rent kayaks from but you're on your own to find them. The Salt Marsh Visitor Center (National Seashore) offers guided canoe trips into the salt marshes. You can also park at the Salt Marsh VC and bicycle to one of the beaches. The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is a nice place to visit, you can walk the trails to the ocean. In Brewster check out the general store and have some ice cream at the shop next door. Provincetown is an interesting visit for shopping, dining, and experiencing the alternative lifestyle. Parking can be a PIA though. If time and budget allows, take a ferry to either Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. There's a privately-run whaling museum in Nantucket that has an exquisite collection of scrimshaw, and IMHO that museum is better than the National Whaling Museum in New Bedford.

RE: Converter Questions - Replacement and want to charge faster

I kept my WFCO but put it on its own breaker so I can turn it on or off. But I then added an IOTA 55A deck-mount converter to the ceiling of the pass-through. It's a 3' run to the two G29 batteries. AC power was tapped off one of the bedroom outlets and run to a switched outlet in the pass-through.

RE: new battery dead while pluged in

Breaker on the negative wire? I don't believe I've ever seen that before. Pics would be helpful.

RE: Gas Prices in Canada for US travellers

I don't have a passport or enhanced drivers licence. I'll have to pass.

RE: new battery dead while pluged in

Checked for a resettable circuit breaker. Follow the + battery lead to find it, might be under the frame.

RE: Newbie Truck and Trailer Shopping

Yes, forget Ford's brochure weights. I'll second the notion to look at a specific truck and find out what its yellow tag says for payload. IMHO for the NT trailer and family the F150 is marginal.

RE: Replacement Parts

How old is the trailer? You may not get your repair money out of it vs selling it "as-is."

RE: Howdy! Looking for an entry level tt on a budget!

Depending on the axle ratio and if it's 2X4 or 4X4, your truck is rated to tow 6000 to 6800#. But your payload capacity is a more important figure than tow capacity. If you can find one I'll second the motion for buying a gently used trailer. If you find you like camping and want to upgrade or if you don't like camping and want to sell it you'll take a horrendous depreciation hit if you buy new.

RE: Acadia National Park

We did Acadia several years ago and are going back this summer. Last time we stayed at Bass Harbor, this time we're booked into the KOA. September should be perfect. Take your bikes if you're into cycling. We did NH last year & stayed at The Bluffs. It's an adult-only cg, mostly nice seasonal campers with a few transient spots available. Very nice amenities but we did't take full advantage if them.

RE: Towing 26' with a 2003 Yukon SLT 5.3L?

That's the 4L60E transmission, add the biggest external cooler you can. The Yukon has a soft suspension and squishy P-rated tires. Doable, but you'll lack power on the hills. Get a good weight distribution hitch. "Real" dry weight on the trailer is probably closer to 5100#.

RE: Silverado 1500... Enough?

4900# dry. Ballpark 1000# of stuff in the trailer and that gets you to 6000#. So figure 700# tongue weight and that'll still leave you with 1000# payload in the truck for you & the family. It should be doable.

RE: Brand Names

"Good resale" and "RV" are mutually exclusive. You can ease the pain by buying used.

RE: Roadtrip planning site?

Good Sam Trip Planer warned me about no-propane in the Boston tunnels and a few low bridge warnings.

RE: Need input on tow vehicle...

6 people + 2 dogs + TT = 1-ton van.

RE: NOOB question 2014 Tundra Towing 7500 pd Trailer

Double cab. Taking the family? How much does the truck weigh with everybody in it? Now add the tongue weight (#1000?) My guess is that you'll be well over the payload spec on the Tundra.
