RE: Tire Failure

I am an Anti-Chinese tire person. How much evidence does one need to understand the problem? First time ever with ST's on my 5W and not LT's. This has a rating equal to the Goodyear. Every rancher in the area is running these and ranchers are not easy on their equipment they spend more time off road than on so the tires get a workout way more than the average RV.

RE: Suggestion needed ASAP

any tire over 5 years old need replaced, they dry rot and you do not want then blowing. That will cause damage to the trailer and could damage plumbing, electrical, and the body. Changing a tires changing a tire nothing different, pull the wheels, take them to a tire shop get some tires and go back and put them on. Brakes are likely rusted and would need some work, what's the guy moving using to move it? An older 36ft will be heavy.

RE: electric fireplace

Nearly all the electric fireplaces are made in Africa or China nowadays. There is no parts or support network for them. If the glass is flat, you could have a glass shop cut you a new one. If it's curved, you can either cut a piece of Lexan and bend it or just replace the fireplace. Rob Just over $200 you get an entire new, you will need the size so it fits. I got the same size and still had to open the cabinet maybe 1/2 inch. Bezel covered nicely.

RE: Doghouse

About all that's done without pulling the doghouse is routine maintenance. Even from under mine work, learn to pull the doghouse. After it's done a couple times you won't be afraid of pulling it. Watch the bolts holding it down they MAYBE different lengths so need back in the same holes, only if different. Lining it backups really not an issue, a Phillips screw driver will help aligning it two's better one on each side. Get a bolt started and more to the other side, same routine. With two started the rest should drop in. (Prior Ford/Lincoln/Mercury mechanic - yes it's been awhile but mechanics don't change)

RE: AC Water on top of RV

You should have gutters on both sides and each should have an end that looks something like this. https://i.imgur.com/PO2CYKVl.jpg

RE: Size Matters???

36ft 13,000 SRW F350 with the 6.7 diesel. The gas F350 shouldn't be a problem, your more interested in how much weight it can carry, what it can pull is useless. https://i.imgur.com/gbHNKGDl.jpg

RE: Should I Throw In the Towel?

Good to know that KZ uses OSB for the roof deck. That's a pretty low budget build, which means I will cross them off my list. https://www.kz-rv.com KZ's 24-month hitch-to-bumper limited warranty umbrella is the best 2-year warranty in the business, covering more than 1,500 operations codes for a full two years, and protects your investment while you enjoy your new RV. OSB? nope. https://www.kz-rv.com/products/durango-fifth-wheels/construction.html

RE: do LED interior lights have bulbs that can be replaced?

Some of the lenses just snap off, some take about 1/16 of a turn left or right and come off. The ones I have with the center on/off button switch just pop off. https://i.imgur.com/HxOuRuUl.gif

RE: champion generator mount

https://i.imgur.com/dWrqWeUl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/eaVwSDQl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HQjKl8El.jpg https://i.imgur.com/MkZObpRl.jpg Chain through handles and rack locked on top, wife made a vinyl cover and long rubber bungees hold the cover in place. This mount is close enough to the 5W electric in outlet a 25ft cord reaches, I do not have to move the generator to use it.

RE: Running the generator all night

Doesn't Harvest Host have a generator policy? Maybe all or individual, most places I have been say no generators after 10PM.

RE: Can you buy in one state and register in another

I'll keep this as simple as I can, bought in AZ from a WA dealer, signed papers in CA and live in NM. Registration & plates were not an issue, NO ONE wanted to do warranty work. Did you buy from us? No sorry we can't help you, that was an issue, I should haul it 1800 miles one way to get something done.

RE: Electric over hydraulic - anyone using them ?

I did my own install of Performance brakes, round numbers 2K for the kit 1k for 2 day install if you have it done. I did mine in two days at home, had a question during install, called an had my answer from the first one answered the phone. BTW: 7K axle upgraded to 8K for $65.00 (Larger outer bearing 9/16" studs vs 1/2" and lug nuts) Not any one here that has not been cut off or had to stand on brakes hoping you'll get stopped before you hit some idiot. 36ft 5W 13,500lbs best upgrade and I'll never go back to drums. https://i.imgur.com/kHuXcscl.jpg
