RE: Springs

No. Parked since Wednesday. Inspected for broken welds looseness, side walls, any signs of wear or contact. Nothing other than the previous contact area I spoke of. I am anal about my camper and have been under and check before every trip.

RE: Springs

Tire distance to frame is about the same as I remember. There is an angle support welded to the frame that helps support the flooring and neither it or tires show contact.

Springs

I have a 2013 Crusader. Last night I heard a thunk and this morning I looked under the frame and found nothing. I have an EZ Flex with wet bolts. While looking at the set up I saw the shackles on the EZ Flex arm leading to the front tires was pointing straight up. Rear tires shackles are at an angle. Not unusual depending on the trailer set up. I also noticed the end of the EZ Flex has been contacting the frame and both sides have an indentation on the frame. The springs have a locating pin that fits snugly in the top bolt plate on the axle clamp. That indicates to me that the axle has not slipped. Looking for ideas now as I am travelling and will return home next Monday. First thought was that maybe the springs had lost arch but if so that would not explain the EZ Flex arm being so close and contacting the frame. All bolts are tight and show no evidence of looseness. My next thought is the EZ Flex has frozen up and not flexing on that axle. I will check that next Thursday when we move from this sight. I have, in the past, weighted my rig and truck several times and under on all numbers. Front of 5er is slightly nose high, maybe 2 inches, when hooked up but I have spotty WiFi and am not able to get on line very often so if I don't respond soon, that is the reason.

RE: I think I'm stuck.

Most windows that leak do so because they are not centered in the cut out, did not use putty tape and installed it improperly or loose bolts. OP, if you bring it home, run water at the windows and try not to get any water on the perimeter seal. Better yet, tape the frame where the window seals against the wall then run water on it. That would tell you if it is the window or the seal.

RE: Lemon Laws, some things may be changing

If the dealer can't do the repair when the factory is paying, how can it get fixed at dealers cost? But a inspection when it gets to the dealer would be a good thing. After all, a truck load of watermelons gets to a Wal-Mart distribution center, do not meet standards, the load is rejected. If the RV hauler pulled out the gate back to factory, or better, to one of the places that re-sell damaged freight at a discount, QC at the factory would go up a bunch. IMHO, another way to improve quality would be stop the bullsnot of leaving your RV at the dealer for as long as they want to take for warranty repairs. After say 3 days, stop in to check on the work. Not ready? Spend some time talking to anybody that might be shopping for RV about your problem. Next day, repeat. If the dealer sees people walking out with their money still in their pocket a fire my get built in service, or Hey factory, I can't sell this snot! Agree with everything you say but the manufacturer would then send to dealers who don't return units or bellyache. The manufacturers would possibly delay parts for repairs since the dealers blame them anyway. Dealers who don't complain would be the preferred sellers for them. From reading this and other forums I see that far to many buyers are not educated enough on buying and receiving warranty work, don't realize that many dealers refuse to work on units they don't sell and often think that warranty is as simple and quick as an auto buyer. Never ending circle for buyers who are trapped.

RE: I'm In College Football Haven Over Here!

LSU had a bit of a slow start last night but finally got it going. Field goals and a missed extra point won't get it against Auburn and Alabama 2 weeks later. It will be good they get another bye week following Auburn. Anyone watch the Astro's last night? It's been a long series with Washington being well rested after putting their opposing teams away earlier. Cole with start Tuesday and Verlander will also be ready.

RE: I'm In College Football Haven Over Here!

LSU ranked # 2 and that surprises me. I thought they would leap frog OSU since they were in a bye week and end up third behind Clemson and Alabama. Of course that means nothing until they play Alabama.

RE: I'm In College Football Haven Over Here!

A great win by LSU over a very good Florida team but I saw large gaps in the defensive line when rushing the QB and a weak secondary. Florida was so close on several plays of scoring and the LSU interception in the end zone sealed the win. The slant plays by Florida was very successful. Sabin already has his game plan ready for LSU. I was shocked by the Georgia loss.

RE: An error has occurred (Resolved at last)

in the last 3 days I've had one error page when I attempted a post NO error pages reading messages or the "new posts" page. I'm calling it resolved. You are outnumbered by those who still have the issue.:)

RE: I'm In College Football Haven Over Here!

Last weekend I watched Mich./Iowa and Mich. looked absolutely great on Defense, but NOT very good on Offense! However, they did beat Iowa 10 - 3! For me the game to watch this week is Florida /LSU in Baton Rouge (Red Baton). I'm sure there will be other good games to watch, but I just woke up and just a little groggy! The BIG10 has (3) good Teams: Ohio State, Penn State, & Wisconsin! Red Baton?. That will get you laughed out of Louisiana by saying that.:B Baton Rouge means "Red Stick".

RE: Osteoporosis

George-The drug you mentioned with an "F" was probably Fosamax. I was on it for several years and my Rheumatologist told me I had times out so I no longer take it. All drugs have side effects,often rare, some worse than others. Fosamax has on those rare occasions caused Osteo Necrosis-Not sure of spelling. An oral surgeon one refused to remove a tooth because I was on Fosamax. Said I had to be off of it for 6 months and take a specific blood test. First 2 labs had never heard of the test but a third did. Tooth was removed with no issues. My Rheumatologist became a little angry at the surgeon. I am now on Enbril for 5 plus years and to read the side effects, along with some of the other drugs-Methotrexate is one of them. Prior to Enbril one must be tested for TB as well as many other biologic require will scare you. One must weigh risks vs. benefits. I suffered incredible pain with my Rheumatoid Arthritis until they were able to get it under control and I doubt I will ever get off them. I have friends Prolea and I may have to start taking it soon. How old is your neighbor? Falls and fractures in the elderly can be a long time recovery. I woulkd ask my doctor to give the the benefits vs. risks of Prolia, Reclast or any other injectible and why did he chose the one he did. She should also ask her doctor about co-pay assistance from whichever drugs she chooses. My Enbril, one injection per week with a 12 pack refill per quarter is $14,000 per quarter.

RE: I'm In College Football Haven Over Here!

Yep-Clemson did not look good yesterday and I agree NC should have kicked the extra point. I still favor Clemson and root for any team who plays Alabama. I see Clemson getting fewer #1 points as Alabama creeps closer to #1. I also think your Buckeyes may jump LSU and become #4. LSU had a bye week yesterday and will play Utah next week. They then begin conference play with Florida, Miss. State, Auburn and then Alabama on 10/9. Hoping the running game gets going.

RE: GM Strike

Unions are always a tough and touchy subject...big surprise! Been Union, been non Union, both paid well enough to fund my college education in real time. Now manage both Union and non union shops. The common denominators here that are causing a lot of the riff in the discussion are... 1. There is a large % of the population that either by will power or intelligence level, will never rise above the position of menial to skilled labor. Period. 2. There are people performing the same tasks as #1 who excel at it for various reasons and they make the #1s look bad and there are more #1s than #2s. Hence the sentiment that people get paid too much for the service they provide. Totally the case for some, not the case for others in "equal" positions. That's the rub with unions. The socialism of the equality across the board. Bad in that it rewards those who "just get by" for whatever reason they're just barely getting by. Good in that, somewhere there's a break even point between fair compensation and the effort put in to get that compensation. And without Union representation (not just UAW), there would be a disparity and more common folk getting taken advantage of. And for those that cannot fathom how CEOs make "so much" and even mid level managers. You are probably a #1 either by choice or default. I actively manage or am responsible for the performance about 100 people currently, but that number fluctuates as high as several hundred sometimes. If you're a #2. You likely get it. If you're a #1, you probably don't. Best comment yet. I believe your #1 is will power. So many have had too much given to them that they have little desire to be better and there is so much assistance from the Federal, State and local governments that they can get by without working.

RE: GM Strike

I think Mary Barra is hot. Maybe so,too bad she has NO clue what kind of cars are popular and what people want For example can anyone say this concept rear wheel drive Buick wouldnt sell? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buick_Avista Why not make beautiful cars like that? Definetly a nice looking car. Give customers the option of a pure electric drive train and hit an emerging market. Cost of developing new cars is huge and it is based upon the Cadillac and Camaro design which means that the market is too small to support a third vehicle unless the Camaro or Cadillac was dropped.

RE: GM Strike

There is a two tier wage system and temporary workers because the union gave it their blessing. GM workers getting higher wages and benefits will probably result in less sales for GM because the prices of their vehicles will have to be higher. The unions are political entities and maybe they want to help trigger a recession for obvious political reasons. You may be correct but if IRC, at least in the past, manufacturers take turns at negotiations and the new contract laid the terms of negotiations with the other two. If so, most of what is agreed upon by GM will also affect the other 2 local issues aside. Thus eventually the additional cost to GM will also become additional costs to the other 2?
