RE: Question on changing leaf springs on 5'er

Use a TrailerAid Plus and do one at a time.

RE: Replacing New Trailer King RST+ : Only Option Is Carlisle??

What do your LOADED axles weigh?

RE: Residential fridge

I check water level every three months on my two 6V Interstate batteries. I add very little and I am in warm to HOT climates year round.

RE: Latest project...parking pad for our cargo trailer

Pic above is what I was suggesting without the straps. I used 1/2" x 2' rebar dowels. Looks good! Here is what I see. I obviously see the pic above. I have a Mac so I have no settings. This is an unusual issue. Maybe it can be posted again, don't want to miss out! https://i.imgur.com/xYkqQMVl.jpg

RE: Do you pay for winterizing?

Using the air compressor is easy to winterize RVs and the sprinkler lines under ground in the yard. Just make sure you have an inline water/oil filter. One of the things you do when you live in places that dip in the teens at night. Good call on the air!!! Only place I used the pink was in the P traps. I don't trust the air alone. Too many dips and bends in the lines where the water could settle into. We regularly get below zero so I use the pink stuff. Done properly there is zero to no chance of having a problem. Start with the closest to furthest lines one at a time. Also plenty of air. ONLY issue I have ever had was a frozen cracked P trap. Learned my lesson so I either placed a rag around the nozzle at drain hole and blew or added pink and never another problem. ONLY pink I new use as I stay in warm climates year round is when I winterize my boat's fresh water cooling system. https://i.imgur.com/HMge9DJl.jpg

RE: Hello

RE: Anyone dribble their gray ?

Heck yes. Would run a garden hose out into the foliage. Never any smell.

RE: Latest project...parking pad for our cargo trailer

Good job! It might not matter with the little trailer you have, but over decades I have learned that where you plan to run off the edge of asphalt it is better to have the grade higher than the pavement. If the tire drops off, it is more likely to crumble the edge. And once the edge breaks, it makes a new edge to break... Good point, that’s why I “suggested” filling the gravel to the top of the asphalt once it’s compacted.

RE: The Unicorn (F350) and 27-FL have arrived

Very Nice!!! Looks like a properly setup Truck and 5er. Nice to see you have plenty of truck for the load. Nose is a tad high, I'm going to lower the hitch one notch. Truck was set for possibility of a larger 5th later down the road. I highly doubt we will go large, this model punched all the requirements. Photos can be deceiving! Really looks parallel to ground. Just don’t go less than 6” clearance at the tailgate.

RE: Residential fridge

We are all just shooting in the dark until we know what make and model refrigerator you have. Or at a minimum, is it a true 12V DC refrigerator or does it run on 120V AC from an inverter. Two things that will improve its operation while towing are 1) a DC-DC charger and 2) a better battery, like lithium ion. OP says Residential refrigerator. I would assume 120v.

RE: Residential fridge

That is the downer to residential fridges! If you stay put for long periods, and only move occasionally then they are great! Now, if your on the move a lot, your going to have to become an “expert” on batteries, and inverters. Starting with the alternators, yes plural. In your truck. Did your rig come with an inverter? What size is it, does it power more than the fridge? Perhaps, you need to upgrade it, or add one if not present? What is the amp rating on your house batteries? Typically, the factory ships their rigs without batteries, which are provided by the dealer at the time of sale. Again, they typically install the smallest, cheapest batteries they can get away with providing! Some people install a couple of 6 volt golf cart batteries, to ensure they are providing enough amps to run things! That would then require, looking at your charging systems, both in the trailer, and in your truck, keeping the batteries charged! Yep a residential fridge can become an expensive option, if you outfit your truck and rig to support it! Good luck! ONE alternator in my 15 RAM, two 6V batteries and one 1,000 watt inverter in RV. ALWAYS arrive with temps the same as when I left even on my 33 hour trip mentioned above. One time I did arrive with temps up. Reason was the batteries were on their last leg. Trip to Costco and all has been well since. That may well be true! There are options for two alternators on these vehicles! I was expressing to the OP what he “MIGHT” encounter going down this road. There are many variables, and you can not post on a particular situation and expect that to cover all alternatives! Congratulations on YOUR PARTICULAR situation, but it does not cover all situations. Not to mention all the alternative’s and allow the OP to think his situation and yours are identical is doing him a diservice! HMMMMM, never said a word about identical. Just stating what I have and how well it works.

RE: Residential fridge

You have a residential frig you have an inverter! As mentioned be sure the inverter is on. I took one trip and the frig temps were up and realized the switch was off. I drove from SoCal to DFW, TX with two stops for two hours each for a nap with truck running non stop. Left SoCal with frig at 38 and freezer at 0 and arrived at the same temps. I will NEVER own a RV refrigerator again! Love the KitchenAid. https://i.imgur.com/7JDmcitl.jpg
