RE: Backing Tips to save your marriage

We go through the same thing, no matter how many times I've reminded my DW I can neither see her or hear her when she's not seeing my eyes in the mirrors. In my case I've determined it's best to just do it myself or there's going to be angst.

RE: Hot wheels? bearings? or breaks?

If you really think there's a problem you need to disassemble the hubs and take a look. Or, purchase an infrared thermometer and get your actual temps; you may be surprised they're not as hot as you think.

RE: Using an electric impact wrench to raise jacks?

Use my Dewalt 18.x impact driver all the time; works like a charm but a bit loud for the neighbors at 0700.

RE: Trailer Tire Wearing Issue??

The axle may need alignment or re-bending. Seek out a good big truck spring shop for a solution.

RE: Banks Power pack finally installed - WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!

Banks really makes a big improvement on the 460 motor. Mine could barely make it up my private mountain road in 1st gear until I had it installed. Second gear from then on. No improvement in fuel usage, though.

RE: Around Pensacola's Naval Base???

Have him try Hurlburt Field (closer to Destin).

RE: Key Largo question....

John Pennecamp in nice but you need to make your reservations now. They book up fast for high season, Nov-May. Also, there are a few private CGs that you can find on woodalls.com

RE: Camping Around Fort Belvoir In Va.

Try Pohick Bay Regional Park but you may only have 30a power. You can see Ft. Belvoir across the bay.

RE: Undersized axles?

That's normal for Keystone.

RE: The IRS likes us.. to the tune of $10,000.

I don't feel sorry for folks that ignore the rules (although I'm not a fan of the IRS). On the other hand, down here in FL there are a lot of Canadians who funnel lots of money into the local economies thru sales taxes or usage fees, and I wouldn't want to see them penalized to the point that they stay home.

RE: Camping Ettiquette

Some people are just plain rude, period.

RE: Raising Fifth wheel

You need what's commonly referred to as a sub-frame, which is just pieces of square hollow stock about 6-8' long welded to the bottom of the frame, to which the spring shackles are attached. The rise is determined by the thickness of the square stock.

RE: differences in mpg when towing

Wind and maybe a slight grade.

RE: Do Any of you NOT Level Off Ever or Rarely?

No, it doesn't have to be perfect, but some people can't stand to be out of level. I don't like it when water pools to the low side in the shower or kitchen sink. Fridges don't have to be perfectly level any more, either. I don't like the feeling of walking up or downhill, but some people don't seem to care. It's personal, you see.

RE: From a class A to a 5th wheel

We went from a 36' Class A gasser to the FW. The gasser was noisy and the ride was rough, and got lousy mileage. Riding in the TV is quieter, smoother, etc., but anything can be affected by high winds. Overall I find the FW better.

RE: fifth wheel hitch installed 4 inches back

I have an F150 5-1/2' bed with a SuperGlide hitch. When pulling straight ahead the pin is maybe an inch forward of the axle. Look at the installation instructions for your hitch to determine if the installer screwed up. I think 4" behind the axle is seriously wrong on a shortbed 150.

RE: Installing RhinoFlex fittings

I've never had that problem, but I'd probably try heating the end of the hose with a hair dryer.

RE: Level of 5th wheel while towing

You'd really only be able to tell if the rear axle is overloaded by getting your weights on the individual axles. Five inches doesn't appear to be too much, but it would bother me to know I was towing out of level.

RE: Bearings vs grease?

I'd just replace the one bearing set and seal on the axle that was running hot.

RE: Smithville meats

Makes me angry, although I don't know what will be the outcome for American consumers. I am suspicious about QC if the Chinese have any input. I think I'll use another brand.
