RE: Difference between 2 surge protectors?

I believe both wtxdxer and temccarthy1 are correct. Keep in mind that they are just what their name implies...surge protectors. I would recommend the Progressive Industries EMS 50 amp, either portable or hardwired. Then you will have full protection. Yes, a lot more money, but a lot more protection also.

RE: Pink stuff in the toilet?

Since there is nothing to freeze in the toilet. a little vegetable oil will keep those seals lubricated and wash right away with the first flush or so in the spring. X2 It doesn't get that cold here but anytime mine sits for any length of time I put olive oil in it. Works great for seal. Antifreeze everywhere else.

RE: not responding

I've been having that same problem on a more frequent basis ever since Windows 10 came out. I'm on 7 but I think all of MS updates are geared to Win 10. I think they are trying to push us all to 10. Just my opinion. I get a lot of black screens while the page refreshes numerous times. Doesn't matter which of my 2 Win 7 laptops I use. Firefox seems to handle it better but still see some issues.

RE: Tire Build Date: How Old is Too Old?

It so nice to have the OP actually post the final outcome to his question or problem! Wish more would do that. Thank you BruceH.

RE: Tire Build Date: How Old is Too Old?

If you are considering the Kumho's, it seems that you are looking to go to a LR "D" tire. I like the Kumho but the 195R14C is hard to find.(That is almost identical in size to the 205/75R14). If you are looking for a "D" rated tire, don't rule out the Hankook Radial RA08 as they are getting good reviews as a trailer tire.

RE: Tire Build Date: How Old is Too Old?

I don't believe in that size they have the 3-ply sidewall rating that the M8008 does. Not sure if they are the tire you want on a trailer. Total load rating is fine, but sidewall is important on a trailer.

RE: Who to but a power center (converter) from?

Best converter X2 Might not be the cheapest, but Randy is there to advise you any time you have a question.

RE: Electric jack

I've had mine for 5 years. No problems. Took it off first trailer and moved it to new one. Only jack around with a 5 year warranty. I'm happy with mine.

RE: Applying baby powder to slide seals

I spray the seals with Aerospace 303 a few days before I dust with baby powder. Then I use the sock method above. 303 keeps them pliable and powder helps them to not stick.

RE: Adding a the fence post sewer hose storage, A question.

I mounted mine right on top of my square tube bumper. I used web straps to hold it in place. No holes drilled anywhere. I use the square tube bumper to carry my "pooh wand" and some pieces of rain qutter to use as a support ramp. You really don't even notice it's there as the spare tire hides 1/4 of it.

RE: 30 Amp Fuse Question

I've got something like this http://www.amazon.ca/305M-Fuse-Buddy-Mini-Tester/dp/B000W8FMXU Allows me to pull the fuse, put the tester in place of the fuse and see what the amp draw is. The fuse goes in the tool so you are still protected. But no question it could have the wrong sized fuse in there from the start. That's a great tool. If you are not testing a mini fuse try this one: tester If it's the mini you may have to search again as gmckenzie's is Canadian amazon.

RE: Monument Valley Tours

Stayed at the campground for Gouldings. Used their tour. They picked us up at the campground. It was great. Bring a ziplock bag for your camera. The fine red dust gets into everything. The indian tour is worth the price as you see so much more. Indian campground is now reopened...no better sunrise!

RE: What to do with water filters between trips?

Drain out excess water, plastic caps on openings, store inside a sealed plastic bag. X2

RE: New to boat trailers … need some help

They sell drum brakes that don't need a lock out for backing. That is probably what he has. Look on etrailer and you will see them. Switching from drum to disk on surge usually requires a different actuator. Free backing plates

RE: New to the forum and have my 1st question

Welcome to the forum. You are not really missing much as far as an owners manual goes. They are pretty generic and not unit specific. Sometimes there is a label inside the unit that list everything you have as far as appliances, AC, Frame mfg. axle capacities etc. You might try calling Fleetwood and see if they can provide you with something.
