RE: Question on inner bearing grease seals

Are you really willing to risk your boat trailer for a few dollars?I don't mind the extra money for the seals. I'm just trying to figure out if it's really necessary to pay that much for seals. What am I getting from the more expensive seal that I'm not getting from the cheaper one. I've got 2 years and over 5000 miles on the cheap seals I just removed with zero issues or problems. Just trying to figure it out. I have never seen a dimes worth of difference.

RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

Can anyone tell me why we are suffering thru these unending Medicare advantage ads? Because people are too dumb to go to Medicare.gov and get price comparison without interference from the companies running deceptive ads. I use the zero payment Medicare Advantage because I don't want to pay hundreds of dollars monthly and I do realize that if everything goes bad I might pay a bit more out of pocket. In those years years where there are no extraordinary medical expenses, I am ahead. So far I am way ahead of the game.

RE: Why do I still look at my tankl level gauges?

When i step on the toilet and it burps, I know it's time to go dump The water gauge works, and i can open a compartment door and visibly check the fresh water That's what I do. Never been wrong. So now you know it is full while staying overnight at Walmart, then should we do a Cousin' Eddie sewage drop?

RE: melting plug

It's sad but the industry's NEMA TT30R/P design is really under engineered IMHO. Many decades ago when it was created, there were no electric water heaters (in RV's) or micros, TV's, large battery chargers, etc. Just some lights and the occasional space heater. Then add in poor quality, off shore parts and it only gets worse. We use a lot more of the capacity if these "trailer" circuits now and while they work OK when everything is perfect, they don't like running a constant load at anywhere close to their 30A rating. It's too bad we can't switch over to the marine undustrys 30A receptacle for pedestals. It seems to hold up better. If you watch when people plug in and unplug, almost always the breaker is not turned off. It doesn't matter what kind of receptacle is used, none will escape damage from this kind of abuse. I always plug in multiple times to wipe the contacts and also use a sacrificial plug to save the power cord end.

RE: New truck batteries

Be careful buying at those places, I went to Sam's Club and found batteries more than a year old. Learn about date codes. That applies to ANY store that sells batteries. Costco / Sam's club are such high volume stores, I'd expect their batteries to be fresher than anywhere else. Every time I've looked at the Costco batteries, the batteries are no more than two months old. Of course, but that is why I posted the information. I would have expected better from Sam Club.

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

Should I stop being a tight a$$ and get a 3/4 ton truck? TIA You are overdue.

RE: Traveling through the Appalachian Mountains

You have a mid-size truck pulling a 27 foot travel trailer? If you have a setup that can't handle interstate highways, you need to rethink the whole deal.

RE: Porch light

If you replace the bulb with an LED you may have issues with OTA tv. I replace ours and when I turn on the porch light sometimes the RV signal goes out until I turn the light back off. Higher priced LEDs have built in voltage regulators that cause the problem, I use the real cheap ones without the regulator.

RE: Disconnect battery when not using?

This is interesting and good to know about the red key failing. Where did you get yours? Is it from Harbor Freight? I got them at AutoZone, most of that type are all about the same. What happens is that rain water gets inside and quickly corrodes the contacts. I always garage the trailer except when in use, so there was only a few rains that stopped the junk switches. Some are supposed to be water tight but don't believe it, just get a switch that boaters use.

RE: New truck batteries

There are WalMart's, Sam's Club's and Costco's everywhere. They are the easiest to deal with when it comes to batteries. Be careful buying at those places, I went to Sam's Club and found batteries more than a year old. Learn about date codes.

RE: Disconnect battery when not using?

And turn the battery off as soon as you are not using, towing or connected to power. If you bought one of those "red key" switches, know that I had two fail in one season. Get a good one like the Blue Sea brand.

RE: Mount trailer tires yourself at home?

That’s a great story if you have literally the entire day to “mount and balance “ a set of tires. How’s that work on your truck or car? Your time must be worth a lot less than most to go through all that trouble. And fwiw, balancing to the hub is an act of diminishing returns or more accurately futility. Aside from the moment of inertia being considerably less due to the small hub/ brake diameter compared to the much larger diameter tire, it becomes useless once you rotate tires unless you re balance each rotation. Since you cannot or will not do the suggested, maybe there is no need to comment. There may be some that have an interest in doing things themselves and others that may be lazy or clueless, I didn't post the information for the latter.

RE: What is a good camp stove to buy now days?

If you liked the Coleman, perhaps it could be repaired. Coleman will get it operating for a fair price, and you could maybe do the cosmetic work.

RE: Mount trailer tires yourself at home?

The $39 tire machine I bought from Harbor Freight many years ago has saved me many hundreds of dollars over the years. I haven't paid a tire shop to mount tires for about 20 years. For balancing trailer tires I mount the wheel/tire on the hub then find the heavy spot and add weight to the opposite inside until it rotates without stopping in the same position every time. I do the same. When balancing the tires that way, do it when servicing the wheel bearings. Clean the bearings completely and apply some light oil. Don't install the seal and make sure there is no brake drag and it spins completely free. Mark the wheel and stud to insure it will be always replaced in the same position. You can actually get the balance of the assembly much better that the tire shop with their fancy balance machines that only balance the tire and may not locate the wheel exactly the same as your hub. I now use an old refurbished on the vehicle balancer. I do find it humorous whenever the balance issue is discussed, because few are ever checked and few are balanced as well as the crude methods mentioned above.

RE: Residential Refrigerator – Good or avoid?

There is a considerable amount of power contained in a tank of propane and is easily replenished. Electricity needs replenishment often using a variety of schemes. Your choice on how and how much you want to deal with this issue.

RE: melting plug

Sounds like the park needs to replace or repair the socket in their pedestal. Poor connections cause heat. This is the correct answer and it was the very first reply.

RE: Lemon camper

You have received good advice in all of the above replies. I bought a KZ some years ago and it was a lemon for sure, my dealer was less than useless. If you can work with the factory and get it to them, you have a good chance of getting the problems resolved. Of course KZ has been bought up by Thor and things may have gone downhill.
