RE: To tire shine/gloss or not?

It's not "recommended" per say, it just looks cool. I use Meguiar's Ultimate Black on my vehicle tires. Years back I was using tire treatment on my trailer. After about 3 years I started getting ozone cracks. This was on new tires. I haven't treated my trailer tires since and change them out because of age, not ozone cracks.

RE: Should I have control arms replaced?

I'd be less concerned about the rust than the bushings wearing out. New control arms come with bushings and ball joints. It'll feel like a new truck. I agree though, pictures would be helpful. Yes frames can rust. It happened to my dad's old truck. It was over 20 years old when his frame rusted to the point that it wasn't holding his hitch. He had a shop weld a plate on it. Mostly I'd say just inspect it annually.

RE: Well this doesn't look good for FCA/RAM

Meh. What else is new? Par for the course in the industry it seems. Everyone seems to be hiding something.

RE: New Tires For A Brand New Trailer

Yep, save your hard earned cash and use what the trailer comes with. Keep them inflated to the cold PSI on the sidewall, don't drive faster than the tires rating, usually but not always 65 mph with ST tires, and don't overload the tires. We have 6 yo Tow Max on our trailer, the tires that came with. No issues. I'm running them one more short trip and plan to change them this summer.

RE: Proper Cheese

ha ha, cheese snob indeed. If I want to make grilled cheese with American Cheese, it is never the individually wrapped cheese, but instead the pre-sliced block. Same difference. Seriously. Do yourself a favor and make a grilled cheese with Colby or a 5 year cheddar. You'll never make one again with American cheese.

RE: Proper Cheese

As said anything you have a taste for. I'd use pepper jack, or Colby. Or both. If you want a real treat try some Gouda. really good quality American cheese. Oh my. I'm not opposed to a slice of this once in a while, but that statement is an oxymoron. It's cheese food, not entirely real cheese, but processed. And even the "best" American cheese can't be called quality. It would be like saying "good quality mashed potatoes from a box". Then again I'm from Wisconsin. I was raised a cheese snob. :)

RE: What adapter for Prodigy P3 & GMC?

I've used my P2 on 3 different tow vehicles. Very easy to move and connect. The P3 is no different. On GM's the wiring for the brake controller is above the kick panel under the steering wheel. Sometimes they have a connector that only requires a pigtail. If that isn't there they will have the wires bundled with black tape at the end. You'll be able to remove the pig tail for your F-150 and simply wire into the Sierra. If there is a connector under there, call Tekonsha and ask what pig tail you need. Their tech support is really good.

RE: Chevy Traverse, CEL comes on and flashes, no code stored

Without a code anything suggested is just a guess. And I have seen CELs that go away on their own and not store a code. Hopefully it will do it again for your mechanic and he can identify what is going on. Plugs are due at 100k, so it's possible you have one plug that is EOL. It's also possible that you have a bad coil pack. You might want to download the Torque app and get a Bluetooth OBDII reader. Drive it for a few days and capture the codes when the CEL is still on.

RE: TT stolen from Haylett RV in Coldwater MI

Small rural town. Most likely this is now a meth lab hidden away in some back woods area. Or it's up for sale by some gypsies down south. Not sure if that's as big of a thing as it was 10-15 years ago, but I'm sure it still happens.

RE: Any kind of spray on protection for oil pans?

That's a new one on me. I've heard of small rust spots on oil pans of old vehicles but on a 2015? Seems to me that might be covered under his drive train warranty.

RE: New Lance TT Has Water Leaking Problems!

As said probably a minor issue. The sad reality of the RV world is that they are not subject to lemon laws, and as you have found, even the best manufacturers have their issues. it's very typical to have a dealer keep a unit a months or longer to fix warranty issues. Learning how to fix things yourself is probably your best bet. Chances are very good the water is superficial and there is no real damage. You might also consider joining the Lance Owner's Community.

RE: Travel Trailer Shopping - Newbie

I have some concerns. Most people sort of work up to a travel trailer, coming from tenting, then perhaps a pop-up camper. The fact that you are confused is telling me you probably have no camping experience. That said buying any trailer, even used may be a mistake in itself. What happens if you find that you really don't care for the lifestyle? I suggest you look into renting one first. Some places will let you tow a rental, some places will deliver the rental to a nearby CG of your choice, some rentals are already onsite. This way if you like it, you'll also start to see what it's all about and be able to determine what you really want in a trailer.

RE: Disclosure when selling

RE: Can I Get Away With a Quick Brake Job in a Campground?

Find a scrap yard that has room in their outer lot. They will let you work on it.

RE: TV breakdown 2 days into trip

60K is very low mileage to experience a serpentine belt failure, I think most manufacturers specify 100K miles for belt replacement. I'd be looking for another factor, like maybe the tensioner. But it's also 9 years old. Most rubber compounds start to deteriorate after 5. Exactly.

RE: Jensen awm965 headphones???

I have the same unit, or very similar. There is no headphone jack. I pulled the unit out to look at how it's wired. There are speaker outputs on the back of the unit. I used an Adjustable Line Output Converter. I pulled the RCA inputs that come from where the TV is and connected them to the output converter. Then connected the wires from one set of the speaker outputs to the converter. That reroutes the sound to go out and back to the TV. Simply connect the RCA connectors to the Audio In jacks on the TV, set the speakers on the Jensen to A, B, or C depending on which output wires you use, then use the headphone jack on the TV. A couple of years ago we bought a refurb Blueray player and put the whole thing back to the factory setup to use the speakers in the trailer.

RE: Cofair Quick Roof vs Eternabond?

I'm generally not brand conscious, but until someone puts up proof, or we see a lot of posts by people successfully using other products, I'll stick with Eternabond.

RE: What are your yearly registration costs for your truck?

2008 GMC Sierra 1500, C weight sticker (8000#), $105 per year + $30 Milwaukee County wheel tax, $135 total. Only inspection is a no fee emissions test every 2 years.

RE: TV breakdown 2 days into trip

It would not surprise me if the belt simply broke apart due to age. Time is harder on some things than mileage. You don't say how old your Taco is, but the mechanic doing the service may have looked at the belt and felt it was fine, not thinking about how old it was also.
