RE: Sailun tires

Simple Tire drop shipped mine to a local installer I found on their website.

RE: How do you carry Kayaks on your 5er

Front hitch receiver with T and roof rack more than enough support. There have been threads on this before try search. /\This/\ I carried a 14' Hobie.

RE: Conversion Vans not allowed at some RV Parks?

Reality - They have the right to refuse you a spot. Practicality - Not likely to happen. /\This/\

RE: Wheel grease escaping?

I'd suspect a problem with a bad seal, too much grease, bad and overheating brake or overheating bearing. Drive it and check all four wheel hubs with a temp gun, looking for a higher reading from the suspect wheel. Or, just tear it down looking for the problem.

RE: Wondering about impact of Harvey and Irma

My best guess is it will be months before the Keys will be available. Perhaps better around Naples and Ft Myers.

RE: Brakes

I've noticed all trailer brake shoes are thin compared to auto and truck shoes.

RE: slide outs

If you can hear the motor operating it appears it's a mechanical problem. May be as simple as a broken shear pin. If you have the skill set you need to observe the slide mechanism while someone operates the switch. Depending how it's built, you may have to drop some underbelly first.

RE: Stolen Wheels and Tires - What to buy?

Width and offset should be the same. The Sailun G637 tires are becoming highly-rated with no known reports of failure. Goodyear has a new ST tire, the Endurance, but I know nothing about them.

RE: US1 Florida Keys Status

I wish you well and hope your house survived. The few photos I saw looked bad.

RE: Repalced springs

The bolts look dry to me. I think the above was meant to be humorous as the wet bolts are not in the photo. WRT to the second photo, and while it's difficult to tell, it appears the new u-bolts are too long and might hit the gas line at full spring compression. I suggest grinding off the tips.

RE: Fun Factor

TomG2, I think you have entirely too much time on your hands.:)

RE: Anyone heard of relief effort by RV'ers for the Hurricane?

Samaritans Purse usually goes in to do some heavy lifting with a volunteer force. Volunteers usually stay for two-week stints and everything, including housing and feeding the volunteers is controlled so there's minimum impact on those that need the help. As for RV'ers participating, I would think any RV park that's open is filled with refugees that happen to own RVs, or with volunteers already on the ground.

RE: Thousand Trails - The Trails Collection

Yeah, only three TT parks in FL, but don't you have the ability to use Encore Parks, too?

RE: Is Class A smoother ride then Class C and MPG

My '87 Mallard C and '96 Bounder A rode about the same, i.e., lousy.

RE: Almost Had a Fire Last Night

I also had a small fire behind a panel under the rear sink......caused by a Molex (molex 19045-30 part # ) connection that melted and caught fire......This is supposed to be a higher end Model on a Mercedes truck chassis. Yet Winnebago went with a cheap parts and a dangerous design on the electrical components and system. Yep, that's the same Molex part, and I have two more of them in the same vicinity. Plan to replace them before our next trip but they're in a nearly inaccessible space under the stove (nothing's ever easy). Those connectors seem to be an RV industry standard.

RE: Are Your Trailer Tires Balanced?

The info provided by 1L243 appears to be related to boat trailer wheels/tires and makes sense. I don't know that RV wheels would be subject to the same rationale about loaded/unloaded weight, where a boat trailer would be extremely light unloaded v. loaded. When I recently had Sailun tires installed my tire guy even suggested balancing and used the lug-centric method. So, I remain in the balancing-needed crowd.

RE: Using family member address?

You need to abandon your current domicile and establish your new domicile at the relative's address. Record everything at the new address including voting, driver's licenses, vehicle registrations, local bank address, library card, etc. File your federal taxes using that address. If you get tagged for jury duty show up or request whatever exemption might be available.

RE: Are Your Trailer Tires Balanced?

Yes, if it goes round fast it needs balancing. If you've ever seen a trailer tire hopping up and down at speed it's because it's out of balance. It's counter-intuitive to believe car tires must be balanced yet trailer tires don't. I'll change my opinion if anyone can locate a tire industry standard that states the opposite.

RE: What Size, Capacity Fifth Wheel Hitch

If you have two electrical connections in the bed the truck has likely been used as a tow vehicle in the past. I'd think the 7-pin connector is for a FW and the 5-pin for some other application, maybe a stock trailer.

RE: Pulling a 30' 5th wheel

Up to about 14,000lbs you don't need a dually as long as the truck has the necessary capacity. Beyond that you should be looking into duallies.
