RE: Difference in receiver styles

Lol. So they ordered them that way. Looks like it.

RE: Difference in receiver styles

Getting bags has crossed my mind. My old truck needed more suspension work so bags were on my short list of mods. I only had the trailer one season so we'll see how this truck handles it. But yes bags might happen.

RE: Difference in receiver styles

What's strange, is Hemi with 3.92s and no OE trailer hitch. Mfgs sure do weird things sometimes. The build sheet says "delete class 4 receiver hitch". I'm guessing that the dealership ordered it specifically without one in the hopes that the future owner would pay extra to have it installed. I asked when I bought the truck and they said it's $500 too have them put one on.

RE: Difference in receiver styles

It is pre-wired and has a trans cooler. I made sure of that. I made them get me a build sheet for the truck. And yes I am using an Equalizer WD hitch. That pic is deceiving, the rear sag isn't that bad, it's actually level and that's my old truck not my new one. And yes I have a brake controller. I took my P3 out of my old truck. I have it all under control. I just need to install a receiver and order a new harness for my brake controller and mount it.

RE: Difference in receiver styles

I don think you can use a WD hitch with that little thing on the bottom of your picture. Some you can. It depends on the receiver itself. The Mopar one like that says it has a limit of 5000/500 without a WD hitch and 12000/1200 with one. Mopar receiver I use an Equalizer WD hitch.

Difference in receiver styles

I just bought a 2019 Ram 1500 classic and it doesn't have a receiver so I need to put one on. What is the difference in these styles? I understand the class difference and I'm still debating on whether to use a class 3 or 4 but I can't find any info on the style difference. Both styles can be found in class 3 and 4. https://i.imgur.com/AALoxuFl.jpg

Driver Ticketed For Towing Semi Trailer With Pickup Truck

Ontario Provincial Police posted photos of a truck that they had pulled over and ticketed for trying to use a pickup to tow a full-on semi-trailer attached with what looks like a homemade I-beam contraption. The I-beam was connected to the truck with only a clevis pin and misplaced confidence. Full story here... https://jalopnik.com/driver-ticketed-for-towing-semi-trailer-with-regular-as-1840562576

RE: Exterior plastic trim cracked

And the lessons that keeps on being hammered from veteran RV owners, maintenance, maintenance, maintenance. This isn't from lack of maintenance if that's what you're implying. There is nothing to maintain. I found it doing maintenance. The trailer is a 2018. We got it earlier this year as a left over. I'm really disappointed that it cracked this quick. It may even be covered under warranty. Thanks everyone for the suggestions on replacement options.

Thanks, that's what I needed to know.

Exterior plastic trim cracked

Today as I was conditioning my slide seals I noticed a plastic trim piece had cracked. It looks like a cover piece for where my roof is attached. It's hard plastic. The crack is about two inches long. Is this something I have to worry about? I don't see any water damage inside because of it and I think it doesn't lead inside anyway. Just wanted your thoughts. I have some JB Weld to fix it. Any other suggestions? Here's some pics https://i.imgur.com/gU9lb4Rl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/yRhnrkol.jpg

RE: Discount off MSRP

This isn't for everyone and the selection is less but our last two trailers were new left overs. That's where you get some good discounts. The MSRP of our trailer now was almost 31k. The original dealer list price was 26k. We got it for 16,5k. At the time I found about 15 identical trailers around the country and this one was the third cheapest and it had a couple of upgrades that the other trailers didn't have.

RE: Pulling with 1/2 ton

Thank you to those who pointed out that using the GVWR to buy a trailer isn't always necessary. You just have to know how to figure out all your weights. In my case my trailer has a dry weight of 6628lbs. We might have 500lbs to 600lbs of stuff bringing my total weight into the 7200 to 7300 pound range. Yet my CCC is 3012lbs. As stated earlier and often on this board, you'll run out of payload before hitting your max tow. That's the number to watch.

CCC, GVW, UVW, and hitch weight basics explained. (Video)

Here's a good video I came across explaining what CCC, GVW, UVW, and hitch weight all mean. It covers the basics pretty well. I posted this in the TT section but more people might find it useful so I'll post it here. GVW, CCC, UVW, and hitch weight basics explained

RE: Removing debris from slide out

Ladder here too along with a snow brush. I use the Harbor Freight version of the Little Giant. Most of the time it's $109 with a coupon. Once or twice I've seen it for $99. Great ladder for the price. Very sturdy but a bit heavier than the telescoping ladder someone else linked to earlier in the thread.

RE: Is this normal for a 30 amp breaker

Again we're talking about small TT AC units not log splitters. I'm not going to argue about motor efficiency for every piece of equipment. For trailers the manufacturers use residential code and a 20 amp breaker is enough. Sometimes like with my trailer a 15 is enough. I'm trying to keep this on topic.

RE: Is this normal for a 30 amp breaker

We're talking about TT AC units not household or commercial units. My trailer AC unit is on a 15 amp breaker. If that has a 50 to 60 amp draw at start up, there is something wrong.

RE: Is this normal for a 30 amp breaker

As per NEC you are only allowed to load a breaker to 80% of it's rated capacity that way you have room for start up current. My AC is only on a 15a breaker and draws 10 to 11 amps. A 20a breaker should be more than enough. And as it was stated earlier warm is normal but hot is a problem. However it never hurts to check the connections.
