Hydraulic landing gear drifting

I have our camper parked where the front is relatively high off the ground and the landing legs in front have been drifting slightly. Every so often you will hear a pop or thump and the camp wiggles a bit. Been lying here in bed for about 30 minutes now and haven't witnessed it yet (DW said it happened again) but I did experience it last night before bed. I lowered the gear myself some thinking I could have overextended the legs but it apparently didn't help. Lippert landing gear. Wondering if a relief got weakened and won't hold the pressure. Thoughts? TIA

RE: re-direct generator exhaust

You will still need to lift it out and check/change oil. No way to open the compartment where oil check is with it in the storage bay. I would not do this with a bay that wasn't specifically designed to hold a generator. Hard to get proper air flow and the risks outweigh the benefits. Good luck

RE: Short bed manuvering

Don't really need one. Towed 95% with short bed GM trucks and never had a slider yet. On my third fifth wheel in five years and haven't seen a reason for one yet.

RE: new truck hitch

I have a short bed one ton and a companion. Haven't needed a slider yet. Before that I had a short bed 3/4 ton and a pro series non slide hitch. Flat front coachmen fifth wheel and never had a problem with that either. Just be mindful of what's going on in tight situations and save your money.

RE: Keystone Cougar (2010) Cable ?

Turn the booster in the bedroom on and crank up the antenna. You will get digital channels. Hook up coax to outside source that has cable and turn off booster to get cable TV. Hook up satellite coax from dish to sat hookup in water closet and mount receiver in bedroom on the generic cable port and you will get satellite channels. (Again, make sure the booster is off.) Had the same camper and didn't like the idea of mounting the receiver in the bedroom so I rewired it to be in living area. Basically, I ran a new wire to the watercloset port from the TV area in the living room.

RE: Changing Electrical cord from 7 round to 7 flat - How to?

Just switch it out. It's hard. Most packages have diagrams and instructions on how to do it.

RE: are you towing with a short bed crew cab?

Contoured cap, short bed. No slider. Ditto.

RE: MidWest TC/F Gathering in IOWA 4/24-26/15

I hope the weather works out for you. I tried organizing a rally in eastern Iowa in 2008 that never happened. The park closed temporarily because of the flood. Never rescheduled. Have fun.

RE: Is the 2015 CHEVY SILVERADO 3500HD a good tow rig

Love my 2015 Silverado. Engine is bullet proof imo. My 2008 is just as good. Only complaint I have is mileage due to the exhaust recycle. I traded a Dodge dually for it. Dodge had a decent motor, although noisey. Seats were hard and flat. I drive the duallys a lot so they need to be comfortable. My father tried a 2012 Ford and traded after one year. Ride and seats were rock hard. Mom couldn't handle the rough ride. It was new and traded for a used duramax and couldn't be happier. Pick whatever you like and have the most knowledge of.

RE: 2015 Montana 3440RL Owner

Oh.. So its a Montana you would like to know about. I could see where people may miss that point after you requested to speak to people who already have this model Montana. Boy, this is gonna be hard. Good luck. There may be a few road blocks along the way. BTW, I love my Big Country. Hehe Hang in there. We're all in this this together.

RE: Nashville Show This Weekend?

Wow. Ten bucks a head to get in and pay to park too. Sounds like the fairgrounds is wanting to make some quick cash too.

RE: Can't believe folks connecting up sewer without gloves

I didn't wear gloves when I put the stuff in the tank either. Why would it be necessary when I take it out?

RE: Sky View Observatory vs. Space Needle-Seattle

Staying close to the Pike Street Market? An interesting sight to see as well. Don't miss the fish throwing. If close to there then the Space Needle is a short walk as well.

RE: Carlisles ST's? Straight Up, Yes or No?

To the point of your post, which most have ignored, or didn't read.... I took off the Carlisle 15" STs off our 5er, and went with 16" Cooper LTs. We had used Coopers for several years, and were the tire of choice for my wife on her Jeeps. The person we camp with extensively put the same Coopers on his 5er that we put on ours. He switched to LTs after he blew 3 ST tires on a 1200 mile drive. I still have the Carlisles on wheels if anyone really wants them. I'll take those off your hands. I use them for light weight tile carts for my business. I'll be out in Hill City this July. I can get them out of your way. Haha

RE: Is this eBay seller for real?

Cheyenne camper sales sell many units online. They go through literally thousands of them per year. Service after the sale leaves a bit to be desired though. But if you are for a distance away that won't matter anyway. I'm about 45 miles away and have shopped there many times but never bought.

RE: Did you see my key?

Same thing happened last spring with my camper keys. Had a new set made. As of about three weeks ago I now have an extra set. Who woulda thought I would have needed them while wearing my snowmobile suit...

RE: Snow anybody???

Wish we had some snow here in Iowa. I'd like to use my snowmobile.

RE: Big Country sewer system schematic

Thanks Tim. I was thinking he meant they went to the same tank. Wonder if this is something I should be concerned with. Although I have never had this problem yet.

RE: Big Country sewer system schematic

The shower and the toilet drain into the same tank? Interesting. I figured the shower went into a grey tank and toilet had its own.
