RE: weight dist chain replacement

All you need do is tilt the hitch head forward towards the tow vehicle and that will lift the bars higher to begin with so you don't need as many chain lengths to lift them and/or will reduce the amount of lift with the same chain link used. You must not be transferring much, if any weight forward now if you are at the end of the chain. The Dual Cam requires some pressure on the cam/bar interface for the system to work correctly. I frankly have never heard of anyone running out of chain links in order to properly tune their hitch setup. Why do you think you have too much lift? Barney

RE: Bent WD snap up bracket on dual cam setup.

That exact thing has happened before and posted here on the forums. I have not taken the time to look it up but the take-away from the discussion is that Yes, the V formed by the intersection of the driveway and road PLUS the turn you were making put too much pressure on the snap up. You have a couple of choices to prevent it in the future. I would probably do both if the tongue weight is over 1000lbs. 1. Purchase the heavy duty brackets that have the reinforced top part. 2. Thru bolt those brackets to the frame. Reese has approved this for heavy tongue weight trailers. I would not worry about the dent in the frame. Barney

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

You won't here me bellyache about my APEX. It has done everything I bought it for, with minimal maint, as did my 2004 Pioneer. I bought them to camp in, to keep me dry, and to follow me around. and they both did it with no protest. OK, There's one vote for the "I'm 100% happy with the quality of what I bought" column . . . . . any others? I'm 100% satisfied with my 2004 Sunnybrook 30FKS travel trailer purchase. It was used extensively for about 15 or 16 years traveling all over and back and forth between either Florida and Michigan or Texas and Michigan each winter. It is still being used by us today for our "summer place" but is not traveling anymore. The trailer is willing but the old man ain't or can't!:E. Can't ask for anything better than that!:) Barney

RE: No Anti-Sway/Weight Distribution

Is your Silverado a 1500 or 2500? Asking cause the 3250bh is a big trailer. His question is not about that trailer. It is about a small trailer his son is renting for a short time to camp with him. Barney

RE: Are they still making this vent cover?

My guess is the one posted by Lynnmor above is probably the one needed. Barney

RE: Electric bikes !!

I have (and love!) a RadRover ST-1. It is a fat tired step thru bike that I purchased a couple of years ago in order to go riding on the trails and back roads with my son's while camping. It has proven to be a wise and fun purchase and fulfills its intended purpose very well. It can be used with or without pedal assist and has 5 levels of pedal assist. I usually ride in PA 1 or 2. I added a suspension seat post, water bottle cage, and mirror to it. The mirror is to watch for bears chasing us!:E ;) The bike cost around $1500 now I think. I purchased it right from the Rad bike company but they also have some stand alone bike shops and dealers in certain cities. Here is a pic of my bike up at the campground last summer.

RE: My prediction for the future..

I gave a very insightful reply yesterday, but the moderator is a liberal I assume and does not like anyone who has read the ingredients in the "shot" including mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, micro magnets and other , many other toxins. My comment was, dont take the jab! This will soon be deleted too. RV net is a communist CCP propaganda site I guess... You're wrong, you're wrong, you're a nutjob, and you're wrong. And by the way, you're a nutjob (and you're wrong). I'm leaving this one nutty post of yours and the responses because I'm in a good mood. Plus sometimes it's fun to watch weirdos expose themselves. Let's not make a habit of this though, ok? RV net is a communist CCP propaganda site I guess... Then why do you even bother? Because you're nuts? _____________________ Topic change... Just to address my politics though (because it seems to come up pretty often)... For starters, my politics really aren't anybody's business. My role is to call balls & strikes. I've been called both a "lib" and a "Trump guy". Whatever. This forum seems to run slightly right of center, which I suppose makes sense for an RVing group. It's pretty evenly balanced though, which is a good thing in my opinion. I've observed a common thread over the years though, and I can't say I've ever seen the trend broken. I've served here during two Bush terms, two Obama terms, a Trump term, and now a Biden term. The common thread seems to be a displeasure with our government establishment. The posts seem to push back against whoever is in office. During republican terms, we have to delete more posts that are bashing conservatives and during democrat terms we delete more posts that are bashing liberals. And in both times, the moderators are accused of supporting whoever is in office, wrongfully so. Our role is to keep our biases out of our posts and our moderation actions. ________________ P.S. I still think you're nuts. I love it! :B. Wish I could think that way. :B :B :B Barney

RE: How old is too old?

I am 84 years old. I parked our trailer permanently a couple of years ago. Not because of the driving but because of all the bending, lifting, etc necessary to travel via a RV. Our trailer is still used by us regularly but now sits permanently in our sons' beautiful family campground in the woods up in the Northern part of Michigan. I miss travelling via RV a lot!

RE: Air bags for a smoother ride.

I too agree with Cummings. ?? Not sure what that refers to. I'm sure he is referring to the statement that Cummins made. "First thing put a set of Bilstien shocks on it. Inflate tires based on load using weight/inflation chart for your tires."My bold. Barney

RE: Best Roof Coating

I used the ProGuard product quite a few years ago on my Sunnybrook trailer and again a few years back. At first I was quite happy with it but it has rapidly deteriorated and I am now in the process of scheduling a complete tear off and replacement of the roof covering. You can see my post from 2012, with pictures, here. I am afraid I can no longer recommend the use of this product. Barney
