RE: Screws being pulled out on Awning

In the good ole days we had manual awnings that were attached to framing members at the top and bottom. Now we have the wonderful electric awnings flopping around while being attached to a box with the strength of cardboard.

RE: Screws being pulled out on Awning

Some travel trailers have only a thin piece of sheet metal just under the thin siding for the screws to bite into. I wonder how the screws hold anything. Check to see if the wall is straight using a straight edge like a four foot level, then do the same on the awning mount.

RE: Profane rudeness in Smoky Mt National Park

Loud pipes = jerks! When they aren’t annoying wildlife they are deliberately annoyingly any and all within earshot.

RE: Running Lights Trouble

Still talking about testers when the two working lights tested everything to that point?

RE: Electric Pickup?

Try this one out. I live in a place where car ownership is restricted to ONE car per HOUSEHOLD. No personal trucks. Further, car size is restricted what you call sub compact cars. Mine is a 2004 Toyota Yaris. About the size of a Suzuki Swift. I didn't know Maryland was so restrictive! :p I can't imagine living that way, but I guess some need total control.

RE: Sticker shock

I gladly take my F150 to the local Ford dealership. They properly service my truck and get it back to me when promised. They are not the cheapest here in town, but, I had problems with a couple of other shops getting the work done. One other shop had one of my vehicles for 3 weeks because they kept doing other jobs while my truck sat on the lift. The Ford shop gets my work done and the vehicle back to me asap. They beat all of the other tires shops when I needed new tires. Great service. Stick with that dealer then. They have obviously earned your business. All the dealers I've dealt with the past 30 years sucked big time and would never use them for any repair other than warranty work You truly need to think about what you are saying. If, over a 30 year period of time, you have never received proper treatment from a dealer's shop...you might want to reconsider where the problem actually is. Perhaps he actually checks the work and is in touch with reality. My last dealer visit resulted in a damaged hub cap and a brake hose pulled tight across the coil spring. I have had bad and dangerous worked performed by dealers and other shops since I started driving many decades ago. But go ahead and always blame the victim.

RE: Full time storage, but far away from home - possible?

Use Sta-Bil in the gas. Drain the carburetor or at least run it dry when it is stored.

RE: Running Lights Trouble

If any of the running lights have power, you already tested the truck, no need for a tester. You need to find where the disconnect is, perhaps there is a common ground for the remaining lights. Run a temporary ground wire from the frame to one of the failed lamps and see if it lights with the ones that work.

RE: Wheel Bearings

The wheel probably was severely out of alignment and was operating with a side load on the bearings. The mechanic understands this and gave reasonable advice.

RE: Knee Pain

If you have a mechanical problem, then snake oil will do nothing. Kinda like adding Motor Honey to an engine with failing bearings.

RE: diesel rebate

If they wanted to encourage the use of a more efficient engine, they would charge less tax on diesel fuel, not more.

RE: Rear Hitch Bike Rack for Travel Trailer

I see plenty of them here. You can easily add a 2" bolt on receiver, it doesn't need to be in the exact center. I added one and carry my bike rack on it, but the bikes stay in the truck till I get settled in, then the rack goes on the truck if needed. Like above post, you have no clue what goes on back there and it may be bike, trailer damage or worse.

RE: Battery storage

Keep in mind that some trailers have a "disconnect" switch that doesn't completely disconnect everything. If you don't know for a fact that everything is disconnected, take off a battery cable.

RE: Storage in Barn for winter.

In temps above freezing, your concrete will reach full design strength in 14-21 days (approximately). But what is that? Did you pour 3000 PSI or 4000 PSI or...? Within 7 days, it will reach 50-75% design strength. So let’s say 1500 PSI (pounds per square inch). Your rig weighs...? Your tires take up how many square inches of space? If you had 1 tire only and it took up 24 square inches, the concrete below it could withstand 36,000 pounds of static pressure (@ 1500 PSI). No wood. It’s a barn, who cares about staining. We leave ours plugged in 24/7/365 and the fridge stays on the whole time. Done this with 3 campers...NO problem. That's not how it works when considering the strength that will not crack. Some do care about appearance and the guy with a new floor just might be able to head off staining that cannot be reversed.

RE: Battery storage

Instead of powering up the converter and any parasitic loads, I disconnect the battery and use a Battery Tender for a few days a month. It could be left on indefinitely, but I have other uses for it. With the trailer plugged in it is exposed to any electrical glitches in the power system. Cold will not harm a fully charged battery, in fact cooler temperatures are better for it.

RE: Dexter 7K axle seals

I understand about the double-lip seals. BUT, I cannot find anyone who advertises "made in USA". While I have had cheap Chinese bearing problems, I didn't have any problems with using whatever I could find in seals. If you don't use the zerk fitting, I doubt that you will have a problem.

RE: Which direction do you spin the trailer brake adjuster?

Don't make it so difficult, just turn till it drags and If that doesn't work, turn it the other way. With a flashlight you can see the threads if want to see which direction will make the adjuster expand. See Page 13 for the procedure. No, listening for noise is not the correct way to adjust.

RE: Storage in Barn for winter.

I have a pole barn with a concrete floor. I do have staining from the preservative chemicals leaching out of the tires. It might be a good idea to always put down a barrier for long term storage. With the new concrete, using a board would spread the load. I leave the battery in the trailer and disconnect the power cord so that it is not exposed to any power issues. The battery is turned off at the disconnect switch and I connect a Battery Tender about 3 to 4 days per month. A cord is wired to the battery to provide a quick and easy connection.

RE: Dexter 7K axle seals

When I get all the part #s from the axle, is there a good single source for Timken? I bought Timken bearings from Summit Racing Other axle parts are available from eTrailer. Do not buy their Chinese bearings.
