RE: Advice on adjusting the slide out

Mine is that way and has been walked on for about 18 years without any problems at all. Barney

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

I haven’t used one in near 20 years of RVing. snip... Never found a need for it. It now just sits in the bin in the water bay. Hmmm. Never found a need for it YET! You never need one until you need it. :) Barney

RE: Purchasing first TT, need a bit of sanity checking advice

Grit Dog, Thanks for the pointing out my error. It has been quite a few years since I had that truck. I fixed it. Regarding it being applicable to the OP, I only posted it to point out that GVWR was not the big thing to worry about unless it is grossly overweight. I agree that if he is really worried about being too close he should look at 250/2500 vehicles. Barney

RE: Purchasing first TT, need a bit of sanity checking advice

I'm with Grit Dog on this one. You should have no problem towing the 17JG with your vehicle and I wouldn't worry about being over the GVWR by a couple hundred pounds. The difference between the two trailers you are considering is negligible and the floor plan is much better in the 17JG in my opinion. I towed the trailer in my signature for quite a few years with a 1997 5.9L gas powered Ram 2500 which was overloaded by about 300lbs on the GVWR. All axle weights were ok and it was just the GVWR that was exceeded. Went probably well over 30,000 mile like that before I finally decided to get a diesel truck. Point is that the overload did not hurt me other than having to have the transmission rebuilt one time (very common for that year RAM). Go for it! :) Barney Edited to fix engine size. Thanks Grit Dog.:)

RE: Rhino ECO Spray On Roof: Does Anyone Have One???

Wade, The cost is based on the type of job, eg complete tear off of old roof covering and replaced with new, or just apply over old roof plus some other considerations. Mine was a complete tear off and for my 30ft trailer was just over $6000. This is less than the local RV shop would charge to replace just the rubber which would not have been as good a product for me. If I remember correctly, the normal price would have been about $3400 if they did not have to remover the old rubber. One additional thing that added to my cost was that I had used a lot of Eternabond tape up there to cover every single seam and edge on the trailer. The technician spent a whole day just removing it hence part of my additional cost. Best thing to do is give them a call if you are interested. They are very helpful and knowledgeable about their product and RV roofs with the various problems. Barney

RE: Rhino ECO Spray On Roof: Does Anyone Have One???

Although I have no experience with the Rino product, I had my roof completely redone last year and my son just checked it for me yesterday and he said it still looks like new and is clean and shiny. It has sat out in the northern Michigan woods most of last year and this winter. It is guaranteed to last the life of my camper or me whichever is the longest.:W If you want your roof to look new and stay that way for a long time then take a look at my post here.. I just had my roof redone by RV Armor and they did a fantastic job. The cost may be a bit more than you wish to spend but might be worth a call.:) That thread will give you some more options to consider also. Barney

RE: Uninteresting people

We pay ZERO attention to the things celebrities believe are important in their private lives ... ZERO. Funny tho', the only time they're interesting is when they're pretending to be someone else. Yep! I call them "fake people". Barney

RE: 2012 Ford Expedition Towing 30' Travel Trailer

Burbman, Going to only 3 links under tension would most likely result in some type of problem on turns. With only 3 links there is simply not enough chain links to allow the spring bars to move back and forth during a turn. I would follow the manufacturers advice and use a minimum of 5 links under tension. He can then adjust the head tilt to get the WD he needs without worrying about whether the bars are going to cause problems. Worked for me all those years until I got my Hensley.:) Barney

RE: New Sailuns.

I am not towing now but for about 36 years I always inflated my trailer tires to the max indicated on the sidewall. I never once in all those years had a blowout or any other type of tire problem other than a couple of punctures. Unlike car or truck tires, a RV is usually pretty close to the tire weight limit all the time. Add in all the twisting and dragging when turning and you have a very bad situation for the tire. Hence, my recommendation is to follow the guidelines of most of the manufacturers and fill to the max as indicated on the sidewall. Barney

RE: New Over The Tanks Bike Rack on The Front of TT

The pictures are gone from your post, but I found one referenced on Pintrest and hoped to findout more about how you built this. Would you be willing to msg me? Daniel Hi Daniel, His picture is still there. I suspect you do not have "show images" checked in your preferences. You need to go to "My Forums"(when it is working :R),then to "my preferences" and make sure the check box is checked in front of the statement "show images in posts" or something to that effect.

RE: 2012 Ford Expedition Towing 30' Travel Trailer

Make sure your snap-up brackets are firmly mounted to the trailer A frame if you are going to only use 4 links between the bars and the snap-up. During a turn, the bar ends move back and forth and with only 4 links under tension there could be a chance of sliding the snap-up bracket back and forth on the A frame. This could cause trouble with anything mounted there such as breakaway switch, propane tank mounts, etc. or the chain links themselves crashing into the snap-up brackets. If 4 links feels better, then I would go back to 5 links and tilt the hitch head back towards the trailer a bit more to make up the loss of lift by adding back the chain link. Barney

RE: Trailer Hitch Set-up Option

Too much tension results in spinning the tires at every stoplight or on a wet or gravel surface. It has also resulted in broken trailer A frames for some members. That generally results from putting too stiff bars on lightweight trailer A frames. Barney

RE: Keeping fridge door open while in storage

I used bunji cords when I moved our trailer with the fridge doors open. Works very well and never had any damage at all. I would hook both the fridge and the freezer doors open. Barney
