RE: E2 Hitch/Unhitch on non-level spot

I agree with those saying to hook up to the trailer coupler, pull out to level spot and then hook up the bars. That's the way I always did it for over 40 years. For backing in, just take the bars off before you start. Dutchman, most WD hitches have a threaded bolt under the hitch head that must be tightened frequently to keep the hitch head from moving down when the WD bars are not tightened up yet or removed. It bears up against the shank portion when tightened down but has a tendency to loosen up with use. I used to check mine before every trip after tensioning the WD bars. You can see it in the diagram below taken from the Equal-i-zer website manual. Yours must have been missing. To keep the head from pivoting upward when the WD bars are tensioned, there are washers that go behind the hitch head and hook on to a rod on the top portion that fastens to the shank.

RE: Steps recommendations

To help out your 'old Lab" Glow Step offers the SafeStep which is a product that closes in the riser space between each step so the dog can go up easily and safely. Barney

RE: Slide seal protectant

Spray some of the 303 on a rag or sponge attached to a pole (like a small floor mop) and reach the middle of the slide that way. Barney

RE: Level on sloped campsites. How? Unique to 5er's

What about backing the trailer up so the steps on that side are on the other side of the power post? That would bring the front up quite a bit and probably let you level ok. Unless there is another rig directly behind you, and it doesn't look like there is one that close, that is what I would do. Doubt the campground management will complain, even if your rear is "outside" the normal site boundaries, if you explain the reason. From the position of the rear cement curb it looks like you have a lot of room to move back. Barney

RE: Maintaining air gap in new Atwood water heater

Snip... Air goes up, water goes down; where could the air go? It gets absorbed by the water over time. Barney

RE: Winnebago Pesticide Policy

The most recent Winnebago Go Mail (email) “newsletter” advocates the following: “4. Bug Spray Around Perimeter of RV - Exterior insect killer sprayed around the perimeter of your RV is a great line of defense. Diatomaceous earth is another great insect repellant, and is actually a natural, non-toxic bug repellent alternative if pets or kids will be around the RV! Remember to reapply these products after it rains, as they’ll get washed away.” I’d hate to be the eleventh camper in a site after the last ten sprayed insecticide around their RV with the blessing of Winnebago. What about my kid and my pets? And where does Winnebago think the insecticide goes when it’s “washed away? Very irresponsible advice. See Clicky Diatomaceous Earth is the remains of billions of Diatoms that lived in the seas many years ago, died, built up layers and layers, and then eventually were turned in to rock. This rock is mined, ground up or pulverized, and then can be used as an insect repellent. It is actually like very fine sea shells ground up into a talcum like powder. It is not irresponsible to use and does no harm to us or anything else other than the bugs.:B Barney

RE: Hitch Setup Question

Using the spring bars, try to get the trucks front axle to where the manual says it should be. I always try to get mine back to the unloaded weight so my headlights aim correctly. Many vehicle manufacturers only want the front axle to be only half of the unloaded weight though. Once you get the front right, don't worry about the rear axle. As long as you are not overweight on it you are ok. The rear axle will take care of itself if the front is correct. Take a long look at this thread for some help. :) Barney

RE: Equal-izer Hitch Bars

Quote from Equal-i-zer's Randy Workman "The bars on the 12k and 14k are actually the same, the only difference in the two hitches is the Hitch head" I thought it was the other way around. Equal-i-zer used to put the hitch dimensions and specs on their website. Has been a while since I was on it but they were gone the last time I was there. Barney

RE: The ultimate 5th wheel stabilizers!

Since this thread has been resurrected from the dead and the original images no longer work, here are a couple of pictures of what is being talked about. Just look for cargo bars at Home Depot or other big box stores. Barney https://i.imgur.com/LALF5Cbl.jpg width=250 https://i.imgur.com/LYOpPwPl.jpgn width=250

RE: proper hook up procedure?

:h I have had a fifth wheel parked in the pole barn for storage for over 18 years now on a level cement floor without chocks. Why would I be chocking that thing up? Are you really scratching your head in wonderment? How many of us park on a level cement floor, in a pole barn, in our travels and outings? This forum is for helpful ideas, solutions, and discussion. I don't see how that post helps anybody except to beg for an argument. We call that trolling. Barney
