RE: Travel trailer necessities

Lots of good suggestions. Did I miss fresh water pressure regulator? IMHO fortget the toilot chemicals. Bad for the envirnment and if you smell sewer gas it is probley a seal leak or leaking air vent tube. Go to an empty lot and practice backing and turning.

I am installing my old class 3 adjustable heighth hitch on my new to me Ford Explorer with factory receiver. On the lowest setting my ball is still 2-3 inch's taller than my trailer hitch is when trailer is level. This is unhooked. Do you think my Explorer with factory tow package will sink down a few inch's and work? I do use load leveling bars. Option B is to purchase a different hitch that will lower the ball another two inch's. What say you? I know for sure you guys know more than I do. Thanks in advance.

RE: How much weight could be eliminated?

Honestly even when we towed with a mini van I could tell zero difference in performance or mileage when I stripped my HTT down for a long trip. I probley shaved 250-300 pounds. Alot of what I removed I ended up missing. Maybe I am a minimalist compared to some. I found from dry to ready to camp my cargo weight was 550-575

RE: How difficult to install new brake drums

My trailer is aproaching 20 years. What you suggest is an easy job. I learned alot from Youtube. You may not need drums. If you went that long with no work I suggest your magnets are shot and drums may not have been working. Won't know til all drums are off. I replaced all four brake backing plates and two drums at a cost of $400 parts alone. Backing plate includes new magnets, shoes.

Can anyone reccomend a good trip/route planning app that might include camp grounds & RV resorts along the way?

RE: Busted!

What could the possible logic be here? Like government has nothing better to do?

I have a square tube set of THULE roof bars purchased in 2001. I recently mounted them on our 2018 Ford Explorer using different mounts. For whateverreason the cross bars whistle above 40 MPH. They did not make noise on previous vehicles. I notice newer cross bars are oval shaped. Any thoughts on how to deflect the wind and eliminate this minor annoyance? I just turn up the radio. My wife is not a fan of that. LOL Go figure. Anyone else had and eliminated this problem? I thought about pool noodles over bars but my wife frowns on that.

RE: Adding roof ladder to Palomino Canyon Cat

I would not try adding a roof ladder as the mounting points MUST go into framing. The factory ladders are pre planned during construction.

RE: Greasing the hitch

I light coating of automotive wheel bearing grease once a yeat is all I do. For many years I did not and honestly cannot tell the difference. Just makes sense so I do

Technology is improving all the time and you do not need to spend alot to get alot. I am legally blind and use monoculars 12 & 14x with wide angle lenses. Glass lenses are still most rurable. I think this is a purchase best made locally. Go try some with different lenses, Range is also an important consideration. Congrats on the Lance. That is my dream camper

We bought a 2018 Ford Explorer with factory tow package. Has class 3 hitch and 7 and 4 pin plugs. I was told my Prodigy 2 brake controller would plug right into the system with the special adaptor cord which I bought. I have searched the web to find specific location of the plug. Based on the video's it is under the steering colum but not sure how to access it. Has anyone done this? I am stumped.

RE: Electric space heaters

I suggest an oil filled radiant unit and a second small cube heater to move air about. We have a small cube heater ($16) from Wal Mart. Had it five years. Really helps

RE: Ideal RV space size for new park?

Pull through spots are nice. We camp with a hybrid trailer and hate staying close to others due to noise. I would say space between spots is the more important factor. Depth for long rigs including TV is important. Didth 60 plus width is good. There is a balance between acreage and number of spots I realize. Good luck. Making those spots spot on level is also a huge plus. Thanks for asking
