RE: Headlights aiming up when towing?

I would say it's pretty obvious. At night, park your empty truck 25 feet from a clean wall on level ground and mark the center of the high beam on the wall. Measure it. Do the same with the trailer hooked up and do the same. I'll bet you'll notice a serious difference.

RE: Any full timers use a roomba style vac?

I can't believe anyone in their right mind would spend that amount of money on a gimmick to encourage laziness. For the modicum of square feet of actual floor space in any size RV, a small vacuum cleaner would suffice.

RE: Why is that ....

A lot of people like to read their own verbal diarrhea and the longer it is, the happier they are. If I wanted to know how to build a rocket, I'd consult NASA, not RV forums. Is the sky green? Yes _____ No ____ Verbal Blah Blah_______

RE: Curt trailer coupler lock

If you can't get it off by picking the lock, on a 1 7/8 and 2 inch couple, just undo the 3/4 inch nut underneath. More garbage.

RE: Food!

I said within 50 miles but that wasn't relevant. We ate at Black Bear or something last evening in Kingman. Wife and I had steak, Medium wife medium well and BL mMedim rare. It was thin as a shoe sloe and as tough and gristly and cooked to death. The mashed red potatoes had no daily at all. We could have butter or gravy. A Corn Bread muffinas a big hunk of corn meal and sugar. The Mess Sgt in the army would have been demoted to E1 and been put to task burning s---. In the Army of my familiarity were fed well when not in the field,and they couldn't furnish anything but rations. When they bough the kitchen to the field the food was just as good as n the kitchen. I believe if I was starting a restaurant..I would hire a Mess Sgt! These so called restaurants...well I just don't know? maybethey are hiring kids who worked at McDonlds. I'm not kidding a Mess Sgt that would have served the garbage we were presented last evening would face a tough future. McDonalds use to serve good Fast Food and real CocaCola etc. That was June, I think 2006 or so...about the tiem they caught a McDonalds in Minnesota selling counterfeit Coca Cola products. Good food or bad I just get tired of the same things for 72 years. Have to agree with you,most restaurant food is borderline garbage, greasy, salty and disgusting. I visit a restaurant maybe once a year on the DIL's birthday, that's it. I do about 95+ % of the cooking at home, from scratch. None of that **** in the box. I cringe at the amount of "microwave or reheat food" people buy. Probably too lazy to learn how to prepare food that's healthy for you. Same with the processed junk, so much salt you could melt snow at -20.

RE: Manufacturing and Marketing Genius

CONTENTS MAY SETTLE DURING SHIPMENT (Definition) "We're too cheap to buy a vibration platform and secondary refilling machine" BIG CANDY BAR. Stiff cardboard backing is twice the size of the product AMAZONDOTCOM. Massive box for tiny contents. Waste of box size and shipper's carrying capacity. Porch Thieves: Leave a box of dog poop and dirt on your front porch. Use an absurdly oversized Amazon box. Gets rid of the box too Hahahaha, have to borrow some neighbours dog poop and set up the spy cam.

RE: Water valve

If I'm seeing correctly, that pic shows it in the bypass position for both valves, if the long ends of the handle are parallel with the long tubes, then it's in summer use.

RE: Interesting portable wind turbine -- looks like a barrel!

I would be nice to know the weight, output at various wind speed and cost.

RE: King Jack Directional Antenna Protection

Well I'm on the other side, I made 2 boxes, one to cover the antenna and one to cover the flimsy skylight before the cover goes on in a couple weeks. Both boxes are made from 1 x 6 cedar fence board, very light weight.

RE: Honda EU generators, BLUETOOTH, FINALLY!

Well, do you really need to know all that info, just something else to go wrong. An oil/hour meter would suffice.

RE: PRICE DROPS coming on new GM small diesels

RE: New to RV/towing. Whats my best option for a towing setup?

I sure hope all your travels are on flat ground with a good tailwind or all downhill with a long runout when your brakes go up in smoke. You can make a train move with a washing machine motor and enough gears, I don't think most of us would be still on the green side before that happens.

RE: No water pressure when connected to city water.

Agree with what other have said...assuming you bought it new, I’m betting on a debris clog somewhere between the inlet and the supply tee. Is there an in-line filter or strainer that might be clogged? Our trailer had several lines and one faucet that were slow flowing due to debris from manufacturing. I took off the strainers/aerators on all the taps, shower head, etc and didn't believe how many wood chips came out of there. The nitwit assemblers have absolutely no pride in workmanship.

RE: 2016 RAM CTD Diff Oil Change Question RE Gasket

The advice I got on my F350 was to use the Permantex Differential gasket gunk and forget the gasket. It's worked so far on both differentials Well they're not talking about fix or repair daily.

RE: No 12v input from battery, 2004 Terry Trailer

2oldman: The two 6v were in series, but one was inadvertently reversed. I assume that created a reverse polarity situation. Sorry, I don't know how to post a diagram. carringb: Wiring diagram shows a 40 amp fuse between the battery and converter but I can't find it. Believe me, I have looked and looked... Old-Biscuit: I agree. But, cant find anything like that. No 30 amp fuses on the DC Dist Fuse Panel; just 15s and 20s. I need to find the in-line fuse/breaker somehow. Thanks for all your comments and insights. If you connected the batteries neg to negative and then connected the other two terminals to the trailer wiring, nothing would happen, power only flows in one direction. Where the main RED battery wire connects at the rear or front of the DC fuse panel, there has to be a fuse. The fuse boards come that way. Maybe someone stuck a 20 in there.

Is there nothing in the Trailer handbook.

RE: Trailer brake advice

Am I the only one who's phone sometimes drops calls. Or who sometimes needs to push button more than once to turn down the TV with remote? What the sam hill is the deal with "got to have wireless" for everything? If I want to stop, I want the brakes to work. If I need to STOP!, truck any wireless snot in that system. OP, get a good controller wire it up right. When you get your new truck, move the controller. Not brain surgery. Amen, for things like brake controllers, I believe in hard wired. Most trucks have a connector prewired to attach brake controllers under the dash by the fuse box. You can also buy the required connector for newer trucks separately so you can move the controller from one truck to another like JR said. Its not brain surgery, but some need it.

RE: Watch That Diamondplate!

That's why they make these for those that can't/won't/decide not to remember how and how not to do things and learn the hard way. Insulated wrench
