RE: Do you use glare wax

Maguiars Flagship Marine wax will meet your needs nicely. It is formulated for fiberglass. It does take some effort but the results are great, IMO.

RE: Colorado and Wyoming need rec places to stay

You can use public land. You do not need a park or official campground except around Denver. Judging by the list of cities, all along I25, I doubt there is much public land available. Maybe a city or county park besides what has been suggested.

RE: strange axle nut on 5th wheel hub

I have Nev-r-lube bearings on my 5th wheel. It is 16 years old and I replaced the bearings at 10 years. They felt okay but the seals were leaking a little. The new bearings were pricy- over $100 each and I had to have a machine shop press the bearings out & in. I check for end play and noise each spring and about every third year I pull the hub and examine the brakes. I reuse the lock nut which has to be torqued to specs. Personally I like them, less messing around with grease, IMO.

RE: Legs on my HitchHiker

If it not an electrical or motor problem the worm gear may be stuck since you say that you lowered the legs all the way. My HH has a manual crank handle that can be used to operate the legs. Check yours for this option.

RE: Advice - tires again

Not all Michelin tires are made in the USA. Don't start confusing the subject with facts now . And they are owned by a French company, not our best ally. IMO :D

RE: Tire Balance

Weights could be on the inside. That is where Big O put them on my chrome boat trailer wheels for a clean look. You want me to take a pic of the inside? NOPE!

RE: DirecTV HD w/ 18 round dish

After watching a couple of videos on You Tube and advice here- thanks again all- I was able to use the HR24 in my trailer. It had a decent picture even with the SD dish. So I thought I was all set. But last Friday the receiver died at home. An AT&T tech came here Saturday and confirmed the sad news. So we decided on a new H44 and a mini upstairs for now and I will use the SD receiver on an upcoming trip. The tech suggested that I then order an H24 receiver for our basement which we can use in the trailer and he would set up both locations with the receiver. Hopefully that will work until AT&T decides what they will do with Directv.

RE: Will Your Next Tow Vehicle be Electric?

Back to the original question- no, we are probably on our last truck and 5th wheel. And I don't believe that there will be a strong enough electric tow vehicle anytime soon, especially one an average person could afford, IMO.

RE: Tire issue

Same here... my Michelin’s failed just like BenK’s.. Every set of Michelin’s I have ever owned failed either spectacularly (sidewall failure) or slowly (leaking through the cracks) I’m part of the Never Again movement as it relates to Michelin’s. To their credit, I’ve never worn the trad off of one. Lol Thanks! Jeremiah X2 Same experience here. But I have worn the tread off, in less then the stated mileage expected. And no adjustment by Michelin due to time.

RE: Harbour Freight Jack stand recall.

Free Country, I choose to spend my $$$ on US Made products when I can. You choose to support {deleted} that's up to you. But hey YOU do what you want. Please show where I "CHASTISED" anyone. Shoe fits then wear it I guess.Sorry, but this comes under the heading of chastisement: "Sorry to say this but YA GETS WHATS YA GETS BUYING {deleted} So they are killing us with the unseen and now with their products. And some will keep on supporting them!" Chastisement: "the act of scolding or punishing someone." Have you gotten rid of the Chinese-made products in your home, trailer, truck, car, and motorcycle? Most of those products are not necessary and are just fun gadgets, and easily done without. A true patriot, such as yourself, would have no trouble divesting himself of products from the godless communist state...well, unless they are fun, then it's okay. I guess you don't mind supporting them if it's stuff YOU want. Wink wink nudge nudge. Thank-you, his comments are getting old.

RE: DirecTV HD w/ 18 round dish

Should have said 2 tuners, not drives. Thanks so far for the info provided. I will be looking at You Tube as suggested. Taking our first trip this weekend so we may be out of pocket for awhile.

RE: Colorado Springs to Santa Fe

We traveled from Santa Fe to Denver area on 285 last fall and enjoyed the trip. The only hangup was thru Taos due to traffic and stop lights.

RE: DirecTV HD w/ 18 round dish

My HR24 only had one hard drive. Did you mean the 2 sat coax inputs? Did you change the settings to receive SD and the dish to 18" round single input and connect the coax to the SD connector the left one as I recall. You may still need the B Band converter but it's been a long time since I was in that situation. Plus it's as clear as mud as what AT&T will do and when and even if... The HR24-500 has 2 disc drives so it can record 2 shows at once. The 18" disc has one input coax. I did change the inputs on the receiver. and it does show the transponders signals are good. To GTO66- this is not a dome, just an 18' disc. I may be swimming upstream.

RE: Replacing HP Metal Vavle Stems

I found the short metal valve stems at NAPA, I bet other auto parts stores also have them.

RE: Best way clean 5th wheel

I use Love Bug Eraser on the bugs and regular washing and waxing keeps the streaks to a minimum.

DirecTV HD w/ 18 round dish

Late last year there were a number of discussions here about Direct's news that they were stopping SD transmissions this year. I have not seen any further news about this but I wanted to see if my HD receiver at home, a HR24-500 DVR, would work in my 5th wheel which has an 18" SD dish. This was a suggestion from some here that it would work. So, using the SD receiver, a D12-300, that I have been using for years, I aimed my dish and got everything working well. Then I installed the HR24-500 and repeated the aiming procedure. I show good signal strength on one of the hard drives, nothing on the second one, and no picture. I do have a warning saying "B-Band connectors required". I am lost at this point. Directv is so difficult to deal with by phone that I don't want to call them. If someone here has made this receiver work I would appreciate any help you can provide me. Thanks in advance.

RE: RMNP Extends Campground Closure

And Colorado is keeping the state park campgrounds closed until "to be determined". This is becoming a mess.

RE: TIres, looking for long wearing, all weather load range E

Many years ago I bought a set of Michelin. With in a year the sidewall started to crack. After 2 years, the whole sidewall was very badly cracked. Michelin was recalling the truck tire 1 size below what I had, Called them and was told they don't cover sidewall cracking, only tire separation or blow outs. I removed them and bought American made Cooper HT3. Got 60,000 miles out of that set and have replaced them with another set of Cooper tires. I will never own Michelin tire again. Just like me, another unhappy Michelin customer. Never again with the sidewall cracking and poor customer support.
