RE: Anode Rod Wear

Ours always erodes quickest nearest the threads, which I believe is the reason: closest connection. But just a guess. Mine too, and same guess. Same with mine. I continue to use it as it will still sacrifice for a time.

RE: Refill small propane cylinder

I had one of those 1 gallon tanks for many years and never had any issue getting it refilled anywhere, even at campgrounds. Finally a campground did warn me that it was well out of certification so I bought a new 2 gallon tank at Murdochs and dropped the old one off at a propane dealer for recycling.

RE: TIRES,,,,,need 4

I've been disappointed the few times I strayed from Michelin. I've been disappointed the couple times I've had Michelins. Same with me.

RE: Winegard satellite antenna help

I am aware of the Trav'ler but $2249 is too much for me, especially when Dish has domes w/hd starting around $310. Can't justify it for an 18 year old trailer.

RE: Winegard satellite antenna help

I have the signal back at this time, though probably only temporarily. I glued the 2 pieces of the gear together and then ran a machine bolt through the center hub to hold them together. Another strong wind may undo my work. I know that a dome would work but Direct only has SD in theirs so if we decide to go with a dome we want to upgrade to HD. That means changing everything to Dish so we only have 1 provider and account. Thanks for the info though.

RE: Winegard satellite antenna help

I am aware of the SD/HD issue with DTV. I purchased an older HD receiver, H24-200, a couple of years back when all of this SD/HD started. We get all but a few of channels we get at home which works for us. Still searching.

Winegard satellite antenna help

Our 5th wheel has a Winegard satellite dish installed by the previous owner that has worked well for us. It is a basic SD dish, model RM-DM46 18" round dish with a manual crank. Recently, due to a wind storm the elevation gear in the turret on the roof broke. It is a plastic gear. There is no other damage. Winegard no longer makes this antenna and has no parts inventory for it. I have been searching on line and at salvage yards all over for the part or a used antenna without success. I Know that domes are the latest technology but I have Direct and would have to change to Dish at home also for an upgrade to be worthwhile. If anyone has an old Winegard satellite antenna that they changed out or knows of a source for Winegard parts I would appreciate the help. Thanks in advance. You can PM me if you like.

RE: Tires after over 2 years sitting

4 tires were down 15psi to 65psi; the other two were down 50psi to 30psi (over 2 years) You stated they are Sailun tires. If so and they are 2 years old or close to that I'd check for leaks- as someone said, soapy water is your friend-, air them up and run them.

RE: Tundra vs. Silverado question

Chevy 2500 HD or 3500 HD to be safe. We’re up to 3500 recommendation on page 1! Nice work…. Maybe will get a “get a dually” before this thread is over. Lol Or maybe a medium duty semi tractor. ??

RE: Repaired Spring Hanger Brackets: Now What?

Yes, I would suggest you find a commercial vehicle repair shop and have them inspect everything and then have the alignment checked/aligned. It is worth the cost IMO.

RE: Consumer Cellular advice

Bob, I get a number of bogus calls as you mentioned plus those from relatives & friends and have not been charged for any of them as long as I we don't go over the plan's allowance. Don't know where you heard that.

RE: Consumer Cellular advice

We have also had good results with Consumer Cellular. My wife has been with them for 10 years and I switched from Verizon about 3 years ago. The only exception has been in Nebraska where phone calls and text work okay but in many areas we cannot access data. We have to be in a good size town/city or wifi in a campground.

RE: Cleaning Water Jugs

1 oz of bleach to 6 gallons water. Leave sit for a hour, then flush. Just what I have done for years.

RE: Tire exploded in Florida

For the same reason you never put a battery directly on a concrete floor. :) That has been discredited by many sources.Hence the smiley face. :S

RE: 2020 F350 6.7 weak start

Couple of issues and under warranty, time to trust the dealership, IMO.

RE: GY Endurance discontinued in my size. What tires next?

I recommend Carlisle Radial Trail HD ST185/80R13-D https://www.carlislebrandtires.com/our-products/product-detail/radial-trail-hd/ Note the speed rating to 81 mph. Not that anyone should tow that fast ;) My recommendation also. I have them on 2 trailers are they are performing fine.

RE: Trailer Brakes

After doing the procedure that they recommended, I noticed now that my drivers side wheel on the trailer is not in line with the trailer anymore. It's really towed out bad. Even my wife noticed it. I can't see how applying the trailer brakes would bend a spindle. If that was a true scenario, you'd hear about a lot more bent axles. Get a Dexter axle. Take the trailer to a commercial trailer repair shop and they should be able to straighten the axle and align both. I have had that done on 2 trailers.

RE: GY Endurance or Carlisle Radial Trail HD

Will begin our second year on the Carlisle HD tire and am pleased so far. They have a very stout sidewall and a 3420 rating for an E rated tire which is higher then prior E tires I have had. No issues to date.
