RE: Trailer Brakes Disconnected message

This is a combination problem. Both the truck being overly sensitive and the trailer being wired poorly. As been mentioned, the early controllers were overly sensitive. Even now they are not very tolerant of the lousy wiring the RV industry use. Specifically those scotch lock connectors and tiny gauge wiring. And let's not forget the known issue of the wiring wearing thru the insulation inside the axles creating all sorts of intermittent faults. Once all the poor wiring is corrected, then you can start looking at the truck.

RE: HELP: Fridge issues and trip tmw!

It does take at least a day to properly diagnose a refrigerator. As previously mentioned one places a cup of water in the refrigerator while the cooling unit is run wide open on AC. After 24 hours you check the temp of the water. If the cooling unit is operating the water will be darn near or frozen depending on ambient temps. Otherwise you are just throwing parts at it.

RE: This the season

Haven't been out this year, but last year got me to wondering who makes all these barrels and how much has been spent on them? Miles and miles of them, and no workers to be seen.

RE: Renting out your RV

Having been in the RV rental business, if you want to see your rig trashed, destroyed, damaged in ways you never thought of and filthy beyond belief, then rent it out.

RE: OEM vs Aftermarket - Chinese JUNK Comparison

Since I don't pay my insurance premiums with foreign or counterfeit currency, when the DW bent her car, I made it crystal clear to both the body shop and insurance adjuster that no non OEM or used parts were to be used. Dealing with an accident is bad enough, but having to worry about poor quality parts is just not right. Read your policy. I did, that's why no used or aftermarket parts were used.

RE: RV'ing couple missing

Here in NV lots of dirt roads have designations as highways or County road. Some of these roads are passable in passenger cars, most are rough in a 4X4. Unfortunately the GPS / "maps" people are not aware of this, so they treat them are passable roads. Several years ago an elderly couple traveling from Idaho during the winter followed their GPS, got stuck with the same results as this unfortunate couple. In short, if you haven't traveled much out West, please do not venture off a paved road based on your GPS or other "map" program. Chances are whoever created the route has never been out here and is unaware of the dangers.

RE: Towing a 40’ weekend warrior 4005 flt.

As been said, Weekend Warriors are heavy (I speak from experience here), so if you can deal with it, go for the dually, but SRW will probably work.

RE: Slide design by Grand Design

Doug explained it well, as did others. While I understand the OPs issue and how he didn't notice it, this is "fixable" with some solenoid valves, relays and switches for each room.

RE: New tow vehicle after 3 years of hard work

Great looking tow rig, good job. It would be a great tow rig for a nostalgia racer. I can see it pulling a front engine dragster on an open trailer.

RE: Life span of TT with heavy use

What jdc said: Keep it sealed up and it will last long enough for the wife to get tired of the floorplan. RV's rot away before they fall apart.

RE: That hitch is higher off the ground than I remembered!

All of us have done the same (or something similar) at some point. I stopped jumping off tailgates in 1991...

RE: Weekend Warrior ft4005

Hap I did shoot you an email, if you could send anything you might have for this 5th wheel. It would be greatly appreciated. Also any help on the radio and speakers on any access points since the cables are inside the walls, I have access to the ones behind the radio but was wondering if there are other areas. Thanks. Having worked at an RV dealer that sold a ton of Warriors I can tell you that the access point for wiring for the ceiling is the speaker closest to the entry door. Remove the speaker and feel around, you will find a huge wad of wires. Good luck. Wiring was not Warrior's strong point, but they did build a darn tough coach. I had an FS2600, lots of miles and good memories with it.

RE: Touch Up Paint

As previously mentioned a good body shop or paintless repair service should be able to match and blend the paint.

RE: Is all DEF the same?

I think the bigger story is the shortage of DEF due to Urea and China holding back shipments of this raw material. The next big story will be a shortage of fertilizer. Shortage is in S Korea and Australia. Spreading "shortage" stories like this only creates panic buying. No one on several other forums I frequent has reported not being able to find DEF. Even the poorly stocked Wal Mart near me has 3 different brands of DEF available.

RE: Truck of the Year

Every time I think M/T has sunk to a new low regarding truck/car of the year they manage to lower the bar even more. By my measurements they are near the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

RE: Generator to run three RV's?

Back in the ATV riding days we camped with 5-8 other toy haulers, rather than having 5-8 gensets roaring we rented one large towable generator that you you barely hear running. Worked out quite well and we didn't all burst into flames.

RE: Tongue/Hitch Weight Conundrum

My opinion is you will be overloaded, as RV manufacturers tend to underestimate their products weight, much the same as users underestimate how much stuff they load in their RVs. With that being said, unless you want to weigh the trailer and tongue weight then carefully load everything to make sure you are "within range" I would find a different unit, because the real issue here is the razor thin margin of error, as you can end up with a combination that is not only dangerous, but a real chore to drive.
