RE: Question on inner bearing grease seals

Don't use the EZ lube feature and you won't have to worry about blown seals. There is also no need for EZ lube on a trailer that is never immersed in water like a boat trailer. EZ lube seals are not like Bearing Buddies that are found on boat trailers. I have never seen EZ lube seals on a boat trailer. Barney

RE: Morryde Step Above

I would look at these steps if you haven't alreadyTorklift Yiu get the best of both worlds, no mess and very solid. Dan We have this step and like it very much, rock solid. Easy out and easy in with no dirt in the trailer. Ditto this. Barney

RE: Low clearance - cut this off?

i would cut it off. Just leave enough material so it doesn't compromise the bolt hole above it. Barney

RE: Carriage 5 th who roof reseal

I can recommend the Liquid Roof product as I did mine and it is still holding up well today, two years later. I posted about it with picures of the process here. If you take a look make sure you read all the way to the end of the thread (9 pages) to see what happened and how it was fixed. Good luck. If I were to do it all over again I think I would use RV Armor. They come to you and guarantee a leak free roof forever. I have not used them nor do I know anybody who has, so cannot unconditionally recommend them, but just tell you what I probably would do. Barney

RE: Looking ideas pop up roof section

I don't think any of those in that link would work because he stated earlier that he had "no desire to spend any time in a tent of any sorts". Barney

RE: Small flys/ gnats coming out of commode.

How you going to get it back? I'm thinking the aerosol smoke bomb type. I think you would risk getting rid of the whole RV that way!:E Barney

RE: Attention Grand Design Owners...

The HA/PP are semi permanently fixed to the tongue so it's part of the TW. Same as adding a couple more batteries. I disagree. When any style of hitch is hooked up, they are semi permanently attached to the TT.... But none of that weight should be used to calculate TW.... TW percentage is a figure used to determine the INHERENT stability of the TT alone....If you cheat on this figure, you only cheat yourself. And I disagree with you. :) Do you not add the weight of a standard hitch to the payload of a truck before it is hooked up to the trailer? The same exact thing applies to the HA/PP hitches. They are left on the trailer all the time just like the batteries or propane bottles and IMO should be counted as part of the tongue weight. If you weigh the tongue, you put down the front jack on a scale and the result you get would be a weight that includes the HA/PP hitch. It is not removed and inserted into the truck like a standard hitch - only the stinger is , which becomes just like the hitch head and shank of a normal hitch and would not be include in the tongue weight. The hitch becomes, in essence, another coupler- just a very fancy, expensive one which is attached to the trailer tongue and should be counted in the tongue weight. :W Barney

RE: 04 Cougar M301 bhs by keystone

If you will follow these directions exactly, it is very easy to post pictures on our forums. One of our moderators, 1492, developed this photo posting app to post your pictures. It works for other internet sites also. There is no need to have a separate hosting site for your pictures in order to use it. It is very simple to use. 1. Upload your picture from your computer to the app. 2. Copy the resulting URL. 3. Paste that URL into your post without ANY changes. No additions or deletions. Your picture will then appear in your post and be properly sized for use on our forums.:) If you wish to try it out I started a Picture Posting Test Thread in the DIY forum for members to test the app. :) Barney

RE: Mail Service? What's available?

When we spent our three or four months in Florida each winter, all I did was go to the USPS web site and chose the Regular Mail Forwarding Service. There was no cost to do this and they sent all of our regular mail. They will only send the first couple of months of magazines as far as I remember. They have a premium service that does cost money each month but we never used it or needed it. All you do is put in your start date and end date and that is about it. We never had a single problem doing it that way. This all depends on you staying in a place for some time. If you are constantly on the move it will not work. There may be another type service for that but I know nothing about it. Hope this helps. :) Barney

RE: 6 gal electric hot water heater upgrade

How do you guys get it out of the heater in your home? My water heater is in the basement and there is not enough overhead clearance to get the anode rod out without destroying it. To get a new one in, I had to disconnect the entire heater and tip it on its' side so the anode would slip in the hole. What am I missing or doing wrong? Does anybody make an anode rod with a hinge in the middle? I can see two joined together with some kind of eye bolt like a Numchuck. Is that kind available anywhere? Barney Edit: Found one here ! https://i.imgur.com/EO3QGdIl.jpg

RE: Pickup driver caught after cops find him hauling 53? trailer

good test for that old rusty receiver on that truck....we know how strong they are :) Looks to me like it might really be a bigger test for that pin holding the drawbar to the tongue.:E Barney

RE: better to adjust wd hitch for heavy load? or for unloaded TV

Set the hitch up according to how you USUALLY load the truck. Personally, I would set it up with the bike in the truck since I would be always taking the bike. :C Although, as the others have said, you can set it up without the bike and then if you need more WD because of the load, then just take another chain link up.
