RE: New to me trailer:1993 Fleetwood Wilderness:Roofing Question

Welcome to the forums! Glad you are here and hope you continue to post and enjoy the wealth of information here. :) New members are not allowed to post links for a period of time.

RE: Question on battery charging

I think this question fits better into the Tech Issues forum rather than DIY and that you will probably get more response there from 12V.Gurus. :W. Moving to Tech Issues from DIY. Barney

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

Another tip. Stop the preaching and the bragging. That will keep the flamers away and reduce my work load! :B Some really good advice buried in amongst other stuff in your posts above. Barney Hey Barney, didn't mean to flame, but guilty of teasing a little. I think we may have inherited from a forum that banned? It is easy to understand the heightened road rage on the roadways today, with attitudes doing the driving, and the ROW can mean DEAD right. Appreciate your hard work! I'm sure you are well paid! :B Jerry Jerry, I wasn't accusing you of flaming or talking about your post - but was adding to it. :B Barney

RE: Replacing furnature

We purchased a Lafer recliner chair from Brad & Hall about 10 years ago and it is very comfortable to both sit and sleep in. It is also very compact so it doesn't take all the room in the RV. Kind of pricy but well worth the cost in my opinion. We also replaced the uncomfortable sofa/bed in our trailer with a wall hugger, reclining, leather sofa from Costco. They have them on sale now and then and are of good quality. We have no need anymore for a 2nd bed in our trailer as all our kids are grown. Any overnight guests will be very comfortable in the reclining sofa. We also have two Stressless recliners in our sticks and bricks home that we have had since 2003. They also are very comfortable for both sitting an sleeping and are also pricy. We purchased them from a company in Tampa, Florida, while snowbirding down there, called Florida Leather Gallery.

RE: Undercarriage Storage

Have you seen these Lippert underchassis storage systems? Might be worth a look instead of re-inventing the wheel. :W Barney

RE: Water pump psi

I agree that the flow rate seems very low. I don't think I would use it but would get one like the one you already have. Barney

RE: Equal-I-zer spring bar question

I would get the 12000lb model. I would guess the tongue weight will be around 1100-1200lbs when it is loaded and ready to camp in. Barney

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

It is in my phone - Galaxy S8+. I use it as a hotspot when we are camping all the time. Barney

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

Snip... If AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon wanted to provide truly unlimited data with no caps, no throttling, no anything, at a reasonable price, they would do it themselves. They don't need resellers to sell their product. They already have! Check out Visible by Verizon. I have been on their network for the past year and have had no place that was not covered. Unlimited minutes, texts, and data with no speed cap ever. $40/month all in. No extra charges at all. Barney

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

Beware of adding too much fill to level out the property. That could cause the two large trees which are presently under water to die. Changing the ground level around tree roots can be fatal to the plant in some cases. This has happened to me. I think if I were in your situation, I would try putting in some drain pipe runs out to a place where the water can flow to. Could even be the gravel filled trench already mentioned. The grass can grow over it but the drain still works. This was our solution (perforated flexible drain pipe)and has been working great for about 20 years at our home. Fairly inexpensive repair also. :) Barney

RE: Need hitch advice please.

In your photos of your setup, you have THREE components pictured. 1. The shank - that portion that inserts into the trucks receiver. In your case you have a double shank, possibly homemade. TorkLift also makes one very similar. You need one as shown by Mitch150. 2. Another shank - the portion that the hitch head bolts onto. This is the only shank part you need, only you need to get one with the proper drop to level your trailer. 3. The hitch head - the part that bolts onto the shank with two large bolts (usually torqued to around 260ft/lbs or so) and which the ball mounts onto. What this whole thing amounts to is that you need to purchase a new shank with the proper drop to level your trailer, mount your hitch head on it in the proper position to level your trailer, install the ball and then attach the trailer and go camping! :) Unless you have need for a multiple shank mount to carry a bike or other item while towing your trailer, I would sell or otherwise dispose of that shank you have now.

RE: tire pressure

I have run my trailers tires at max sidewall pressure for over 30 years with no blowouts or even a flat tire. If I were still towing today I would continue that practice. Most trailers are loading the tires to very near their maximum load and the tires need all the help they can get. I also upgraded my tires and rims from stock "C's" to "E's" as the tires wore or aged out. Barney

RE: Cleaning the carpet?

I agree with Pigman regarding the Resolve and also the Dyson. I had to take our Dyson completely apart and clean it with soap and water and then blow with air compressor to get all the powder out. The carpet did come out very clean however. :) Barney
