RE: Leaf Springs

Take it to a commercial trailer shop. They are the ones fully qualified to properly determine what might be wrong and fix it for a reasonable price. CW is a seller, can sometimes fix house issues, but definitely is not qualified to diagnose running gear issues.

RE: Casualy Shopping for a used TV

That 13-1500 dry pin weight can soar to north of 2500 pounds when the fiver is loaded for a week. Most real world 2500 series trucks will only have under 2000 of cargo capacity ready to go. If your that worried about ride, maybe you should rethink the whole thing. Modern 3500 series trucks are no worse than 2500 series trucks. Bottom line, choose the correct tool for the job or stay home.

RE: A/C with Heat Pump, worth it?

Heat pumps in general become totally useless below 40 degrees. Life expentency of residential heat pumps is around ten years. I would expect less in an RV. Worth it? Up to you, but personally we camp at times where overnight lows are around 20, so to me it becomes useless. I'll stick with the tried and true gas furnace.

RE: Shipping a small trailer & truck across US vs driving?

Hummm theee to four thousand dollars plus air fare vs 5 days driving myself? No brainer. First, there is no way I would trust some stranger driving my truck. Second, there is no way I would volunteerly get into an airplane again. Flew millions of miles during my working career, there is just no appeal to ever see the inside of one again.

RE: Stove issue

Have you tried with a gas match? Over the years there has been a few times when the pizzeo igniter would not work. Ot always turned out to be a loose wire. If there is no gas flow with the burners on, then, since there are four gas valves you have no gas to the stove. No gas , used a lighter nothing worked Then there are only a couple of options. No gas! Or you have a gas leak detector that has killed your gas flow, or you have air in the lines that needs to be purged out. Turn on one burner, hold a lit gas match to the burner until it lights. This can take up to two minutes.

RE: Adding air bags, any recommendations???

Get your loaded combination to the scales. Guessing is asking for trouble. Adding stuff simply to add is going to cost unrecoverable money. Your trucks 9200 GVWR and likely 7500 ready to go weight only gives you about 1700 pounds of real world cargo capacity.

RE: Hot water tank and water filter

Take the anode rod out. Block off the WH using the appropriate valve settings.

RE: More tire questons

Let google become your friend. Hiway tread tires are always your best choice for trailer use.

RE: Oregon Sand Dunes

Winchester bay has two parks with easy dune access. Salmon Harbor is the nicest, but does not allow ORV access. But there is one across the road that does. About 1/4 mile further west is a private parking lot with camping. As I remember you will need valid tags for Oregon ORV use.

RE: More tire questons

There are several online retailers that have decent prices on tire/wheel packages. You need to know what axle and stud configuration, and current tire diameter. 15 inch wheels your really limited, and boo on Northwood for that mistake. While 16 inch wheels will not increase your trailers GVWR, it will open the door to a much better selection of tires now and in the future.

RE: More tire questons

Anu decent LT tire from a well know brand will hold up extremely well. 16 inch wheels? Because the tire choices in 16 inch is way better than 15 inch LT tire sizes.

RE: Looking for part (and it's real name)

Window shade or travel cover. Never installed on some trailers.

RE: More tire questons

Sadly, ST tires will not hold up very well. Change to 16 inch wheels if you dont already have them and install a decent LT tire.

RE: Want Directv HD

If your going to do it, fo for the gold. Ditects latest technology is SWM, so step up to a full SWM antenna. It will probably mean rewiring your RV too.

RE: how to find the year on a fifth wheel

Also check on the left front corner. Should be a tag with all pertinant info.

RE: Truck/trailer weight help

Probably your smartest move. Turns out most of us upgrade several times before we get it right. Dually will give you the upgrade capabilities for future
