RE: Do I need to get my transmission fluid changed or not?

What does your maintenance manual say?

RE: Truck bed stuff

What (if anything) can I haul in my truck bed without worrying about interference with the 5th wheel hitch? Thanks You can put anything in the bed as long as it is not in the way of the 5th wheel hitch or kingpin!

RE: Advice please for Ford F350 6.7l

My suggestion is that you read and understand the owner's manual. In it you will find, I am sure, the answers to every one of your questions. Relying on any and everyone to supply answers when they may or may not know anything about what they are talking about is foolish. DITTO

RE: Expired Propane Tanks

Take them to someone who knows what they are doing with propane gas like a propane distributor.

RE: Difference of Air Bags over WD hitch?

You need to read the info on a WD hitch and air bags, no comparison on what each does.

RE: rear stabilizer jack placement question

No, if you want to stop the shake get a bipod or tripod. When someone is walking around inside the 5er it will bounce/wiggle. Rubber tires will bounce, suspension systems are made to bounce. To eliminate the bouncing/wiggling you need to keep the weight from pushing down on the tires and suspension by making sure your stabilizers are tight between the 5er and the ground. Don’t just let them out far enough to touch the ground, turn the crank more to make sure they are tight so they will not allow the 5er to push down on the tires. Use a bipod/tripod under the king pin. Make sure it is tight between the ground and the king pin, don’t just adjust it till it touches, tighten it so the front overhang will not move. Make sure to check the stabilizers and bipod/tripod every couple of days because they will loosen up over time. Doesn’t make sense spending a lot of money on landing jack stabilizers when the landing jacks are stable and don’t bounce up and down. If you have properly adjusted the stabilizers and bipod/tripod then you shouldn’t have any bouncing/wiggling. This has worked for me over the past 15 years. Chocks are to keep the 5er from rolling forward or backwards. They do not eliminate the weight of the 5er from pushing down and causing the bouncing/wiggling. If you park on a site that has a incline/decline then you probably want to use chocks to keep your 5er from rolling when you unhitch. There are a lot of other options out there to “eliminate” the bouncing/wiggling if you have the extra money and want to spend it.

RE: Tilt out window rollers out of track. Help.

The way way to get the wheels back in their slot is take it to the dealer to be repaired and the cause of the problem fixed instead of drilling on it.

RE: Tire inflation

Run 80psi. Under or over inflated tires heat up. Excess heat will damage tires. Get the facts contact the tire manufacturer.

RE: Manufacturer model length vs actual tongue-tail length

For the most part, the number in the model number is the length of the cabin of the trailer. Does not include bumper or tongue lengths. There are exceptions, but most of the time, this is true. And it is an estimate, even at that. The model number is the model number and has nothing to do with trailer length ,all of the time, this is true. :S

RE: Roto- Chock and 6 point leveling???

Why do you need wheel chocks when the weight of the trailer is supported by the 6 levelers? Wheel chocks keep the trailer from moving forwards and backwards. :S

RE: Tires.... Keep for awhile or get them off???

If they will handle the weight why get rid of them if they havent been a problem?

RE: Manufacturer model length vs actual tongue-tail length

Sounds like 25QB is part of the model number not the trailer length. The model number is the model number and has nothing to do with the trailer length.

RE: windows 8.1 or windows 7

What does this have to do with an RV? Try the tech forum.

RE: Wet grass tire chains??

Just dig bigger ruts in the mud. Chains are for ice.
