RE: Trailer Suspension Questions

https://i.imgur.com/pYK893Sl.jpg I finnaly did the wet bolt and rubber ride upgrade and it made a big difference. My 18 year old mechanic/son/wizard did it for me in our driveway. I also now tow a full tank of gray water to add weight over the axles to cut down on bouncing. I may add shocks next year before our next trip west.

RE: 2 Years with a Older Class A

We too bought a used class A; 2006 National SeaBreeze LX, 33 foot. We've had it 18 months now, and have done the following: 1. New tires all around, $3000 2. New fridge - went with a residential - $1200 (my option) 3. New front TV - $350 (my option) 4. Suspension mods - $1000 (my option) 5. Fluids - $500 6. New transfer switch - $600 7. Re-seal roof - $400 8. Defog Windows - $900 9. New A/C compressor for V10 - $450 Total is $8400 so far - BUT - we love the MH. Most of these costs are not annual costs (tires come to mind) and some were my option to upgrade. I'm budgeting $3000 per year for required maintenance. We'll see if that is enough as we move forward... Al Quick question - what type of roofing do you have? And can you use eternabond tape to reseal your roof if it is fiberglass? I used eternabond on my travel trailer roof seals with great results. Thank you to both you and the OP for posting your numbers. We are looking at 3 to 4 year old Tiffin Allegros and your experiences will help.

RE: Lake Superior - Wisconsin South Shore, Bayfield

Congratulations Bob on your retirement! I have 24 years in at the county level, a majority of it as a Detective. I know I will always be keeping a careful account of my surroundings! Besides my pension, one of my top job benefits is being able to carry wherever I go.

RE: Lake Superior - Wisconsin South Shore, Bayfield

Bayfield's AppleFest starts later this week. Too many crowds for us and I have to head back to work tomorrow--looking forward to retirement from law enforcement in 5 years and long extended fall leaf color camping trips.

Lake Superior - Wisconsin South Shore, Bayfield

Wrapping up another fantastic stay at the City of Bayfield's Dalyrimple Campground. $25 a night for 30 amp electricity, private wooded sites with fantastic Apostle Island views right on the water, and all the free split firewood you want! No showers or flush toilet though so bring your own toilet and shower. I carry water from nearby city water faucets for our showers in our trailer. And some tight turns and sites so be comfortable with your driving skills. Walk or bike into downtown where there is so much to do. A great place to visit over and over again. https://i.imgur.com/oa7d4Lcl.jpg

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

Perhaps my best mod ever, a suspension upgrade! Towing now is so smooth, especially with a full grey water tank (not sure why I didn't think of a full waste water tank sooner). https://i.imgur.com/HNypVmcl.jpg

RE: Problems with Schwintek In-Wall Slide-Out

I've noticed some manufacturers have gone back to the old reliable cable and pulley system on their brand new TT's that we have on our 2012 unit.

RE: cable slide outs

We have had the cable slide out since new in 2012. Never had a problem with it and never had to adjust cables. My understanding is the gear system has been a headache. The cable system is the old design taking up more space and perhaps weight. The gear track system saves on space. We frequently open the kitchen/couch slide at rest stops to eat while still hooked up to tv. Very reliable set up for us.
