RE: 5th wheel & Half-ton TV Thoughts

Some things are best left unanswered. It's what he has to do.

RE: 5th wheel & Half-ton TV Thoughts

No thought wouldn't consider. It is a recipe to loose your truck , trailer and lives including others on the road.

RE: Solitude leaning to one side.

To Fj12ryder : "Oh Bosh" doesn't make you right and me wrong. I bought a brand new Montana fifth-wheel. I took it from Buffalo NY to Florida and back and I also took it from Buffalo to California and back. On the way home it was dog tracking so badly I stopped to see if something was broken. I brought it home and had a local manufacturer make a new axle of 250 thousandths wall thickness. The original was a Dexter 188 thousandths thick. At same time I put brass bushings and wet bolt kits. I took it to Florida and with a high pressure grease gun couldn't get grease into them and that axle was bent. At that point I made an appointment with Mor/yde and had the problem corrected properly and installed Disc brakes. I will change my wording . Everything prior to Mor/yde was a band-aid and pissing into the wind. PS:I also had an extra leaf added to each left spring and it still didn't sit right. AGAIN Mor/yde

RE: Solitude leaning to one side.

You can spend $1000.00 dollars here and $1000.00 there or take it to Mor/yde and put on their independent suspension and Disc brakes and go and enjoy the trailer. These other band-aids is like peeing into the wind.

RE: Trailer sway issies

You mentioned all the suspension I'd be looking on top of pin box to make sure no welds to the trailer frame have broken . The weld on our fifth wheel are less than desirable although they never broke. Costs nothing to look.

RE: tire wrench

A torque wrench is the way to go I had an F350 in 1976 and if I hit a pot hole it would break one or two studs. poor quality studs. Find the stud size and torque them. If they break they needed changing anyway Better to do this properly in my opinion

RE: New Sailuns.

Flashman: I totally agree with Cummins 12v98 on my truck even if it is a 2020 GMC. As far as your question I would put 100 psi and I would purchase a $6.00 tire depth gauge and monitor the wear pattern over next few thousand miles to determine exactly what you need. The tires won't know the difference anymore than your tire personal did and if they are that frail you purchased the wrong tires.

RE: Fifth Wheel Hitch What Kind

My observations of the Curt Hitch were a very nice plate, nice covers over the puck levers etc. What I didn't like was the jaws that does the work. The jaws closed appear to be 9/16 of an inch thick but if you look at the inside of the jaws there is an obviously hardened ridge 3/16 of an inch making contact with trailer king pin. This to me will wear a groove in the king pin over time. The B&W hitches have a full 1 Inch thick precisely machined jaws to clamp the king pin. B&W hitches are a little more expensive but if you look past pretty I think you will buy B&W. Also B&W are heavier because they are built heavier.

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

If original tires on trailer I would start with trailer manufacturer recommendation . I would then buy a $6.00 tire depth gauge . If the outsides wear first you need more air. If the center wear first you can reduce pressure a small amount and monitor till you get your magic pressure of wearing evenly.
