RE: Significant impact on RVing!!

Just be assured, people will figure out how to work the system to their advantage, and in a few years we will have new forum threads with people complaining about the latest "new" system to prevent people from working the system. Very early in this thread I called it a game only to be corrected by those that know more than me. I have seen the results of the keyboard jockeys working the system for many years to push ahead of others. About the crowding; the parks were mostly set up years age when the population was much smaller but little has been done to increase access.

RE: Help with zirk fittings

That may be more of a "illustration" rather than taken from actual CAD drawings since I retrived that pix from Dexters service manual. CAD drawing I would have expected to have dimensions and tolerances notations.. I did actual measurements on several brands of bearings and did bring up the CAD drawings of the bearings. The illustration shown is not accurate and I just used it to convey the point. That sharp edge and burr, caused by this defective design, may be one more reason that the seals are not holding the grease, always remove that burr before installing the brake drum.

RE: Help with zirk fittings

Now take a look at their drawing and you will see that the inner bearing has no shoulder support next to the grease seal. Their drawing shows a best case situation that I have never seen. In fact, the drawings and tolerances confirm that there can be zero contact with the bearing ground surface, in my opinion this is a design defect. With the bearing pushing against only a sharp edge, the bearing adjustment is quickly lost. Those that only want to toss grease at their spindles have no clue. https://i.imgur.com/Dn6PEzDl.jpg

Balance Question

Here is a perfectly balanced tire/wheel that I had to add two ounces of weight to bring it into balance when mounted. https://i.imgur.com/68igcojl.jpg Here is the video before adding weights: Video Any guesses to the cause?

RE: Help with zirk fittings

Do you guys ever get tired of the same old stories? Of course it’s better to hand pack the bearings, but it’s also worse to not have enough grease in there and that can be cured quickly and easily with a few shots from a grease gun through the EZ lube. But you’re right, you don’t even want the cavity that full. More like half full of grease in between the bearings, tops is what I shoot for. I do get tired of wrong answers and try to add some common sense, only to be ridiculed by the usual suspects. This subject is about a useless "feature" pushed by the RV industry as a selling point to those that don't understand. A few shots of grease will do nothing for the outer bearing. Half full again will do nothing.

RE: Winegard mast orientation while driving

I had the same problem and talked to a Winegard representative about cutting off the first element. He said that it would reduce the performance a bit but still have some benefit.

RE: Help with zirk fittings

Avoid the headaches. Just do not use the zerk fittings. A manual inspection is required anyway. So you may as well repack the bearings by hand then, Anything else is just a guess.

RE: Cybertruck has a yoke

Tesla truck is made that shape bc such hard stainles steel cant be formed only bent in two axis. main advantage is that dagger shape should get the best range mpg simply for its aerodynamics. Id buy it even it wasnt electric. So they are using a hard stainless instead of the type used in this car? Ford stainless

I won't be playing the game, I just don't need a string of appointments.

RE: Help! Hitch stuck in ball mount.

The torsion bars/sway bars/spring bars (can these terms all be used interchangeably?) have been removed. The words "torsion bars" was used many years ago but not today, they are NOT "sway bars". It sounds like you have a rusted coupler latch and penetrating oil would be even better than WD-40. Always apply grease to the ball despite what some might advise.

RE: Atwood electric jack assembly cover

Found a part # but still nothing. Is Atwood still in business? Part # is 88058/63 I believe they were bought up by Lippert so another good one bites the dust.

RE: Help! Hitch stuck in ball mount.

Until the words used are clear, I have no idea how to help. A photo is the only way to see the issue. Use the proper words for each component, here is a list: Receiver Shank Hitch Pin Ball Mount Ball Spring Bars Coupler Coupler Latch Brackets

RE: Removing seized shackle bolts?

I suggested several times on this forum to cut a figure 8 inside the bushing to allow the grease to distribute away from the grease hole. You can't get enough pressure to force it thru a tightly blocked hole. Expect more joints to stop flowing as the wear will cause a better match and more perfect blocking.I am not sure how to cut a figure 8 inside the bushing... I did file a relief or chamfer around the grease exit to help the flow. Use a Dremel with a ball burr. It doesn't need to be fancy and don't make it very deep as the bushings are thin. Also, don't run the groove completely to the end or the grease will take the easy path right out.

RE: Uneven Bearing Temp

If you have torsion axles the trailer needs to be level, a leaf spring trailer will have an equalizer that compensates to some degree.

RE: type of hitch

The sway controll you need is a friction sway bar. Like 50$ on amazon. There all roughly the same. Your hotch will need a plate with a second smaller ball. Or get the one at Harbor Freight for $30.

RE: is a surge protector necessary for a basic travel trailer?

I use them for piece of mind. On my third Progressive EMS right now. Actually had one burn in a pedestal. There is a campground I stay at frequently that has a sign on every pedestal. The rules, which one states recommendation of Surge protectors. I guess signs are cheaper than replacing worn and abused outlets. I have seen surge protectors wasted by folks that plug their burned plugs into them. I use a short sacrificial cord to plug into the pedestal and then plug into that.

RE: 12 volt only refrigerator

12 Volt using solar in boats might be fine, there aren't many trees to block the sun. Here in Penn's Woods, many campsites are surrounded by trees. There is a lot of energy in a propane bottle, no need generate it.

RE: F150 and Reflection 150 series?

If you have one or more tanks forward of the axles, as a test try filling them completely and have the the other tanks empty. That may increase the tongue weight to an amount that will work. Yes, it might be too much weight for your truck but you already know that more truck is needed for any of the trailers you want to pull.

RE: F150 and Reflection 150 series?

am tired of dealing with the stress of travel trailer sway on longer trips, even after trying 4 different WDHs professionally installed! That right there may be at the heart of the problem. Professionals, I doubt that you can find many.
