RE: Trailersavor vs Anderson Ultimate

Our Hensley TrailerSaver BD3 has two airbags and two shocks and articulates as well.

RE: Roof tear along edge ...

We did the same two years after buying our FW. Used Eternabond. Here we are 10 years later and tbe patch has held with no hint of coming unglued.

RE: Awning material replacement questions

Update. I ordered the acrylic material fabric replacement with the metal weather shield from ShadePro. Since I live near enough to them that they will do the installation, I opted for the installation. They charge $250 for the installation BUT, they bring the awning with them on their truck instead of charging $150 for shipping. So the install is really only $100 (no brainer for me). They offer free shipping for fabric only orders, but adding the weather shield means they have to ship by truck ($$$$). I'll provide another update when the installation is finished. You'll be very happy with both. Looking forward to seeing your update.

RE: Mattress

We replaced the mattress in our RV after 9 years of use. The original was high quality, pillow top and inner coil, but it wore out. We replaced it with a Wilderness Montana hybrid pillow top with inner individually wrapped coils. It is high but very comfortable, and we have no regrets.

RE: Travel Trailers vs Motor Home

After reading your original question on switching from a Class A to a travel trailer, think about storage and space. There will be a difference. Twelve years ago before we purchased our FW, we were seriously looking at a Class A and towing our Jeep. We visited the dealership several times looking at the motorhome and at the same time, we were looking at FWs. On the third visit of the Class A, hubby said to me, "where are you going to put the garbage can?" OMGeee! I started looking at the space inside. Where would I put the garbage can? Where would I store the dog food, etc? That did it for me. Inside, the space was not as much as some FW's we looked at. I'm not suggesting you look at FW's but think about storage compared to what you currently have. Also, consider the quality of RVs today. It's not as good as years back. The work you need to do on your Class A may equate to repairs to the TT down the road, even after the warranty (if you buy new) runs out.

RE: Travel Trailers vs Motor Home

I know this has been discussed before, but I am going to bring it up again. I have 2000 Winnebago diesel pusher that needs some work. I am thinking of down-sizing to a 28-foot 2017 Vibe travel trailer. I would appreciate some opinions from people who have made a similar switch. Right now, I am leaning towards the travel trailer. I would like to thank you all in advance. I towed a travel trailer 32' Holiday Rambler for 10 yrs. and a Big Horn 5th. wheel for 10 yrs. I would recommend a 5th. wheel without question. They are easier to hitch and unhitch and are much more stable with driving down the road. i.e. when strong winds and big 18-wheelers pass you will hardly notice. Agree with you on stability of towing with one caveat - we towed a 32' TT before purchasing our FW and towed it with a Hensley Arrow. No sway when 18 wheelers passed.

RE: Best Hitch

With a TrailerSaver hitch, Bd3 or BD5, as noted, the hitch has to be put in the 9 o'clock position for hitching, once it's hooked, not only will you hear an audible locking sound, that wonderful clunking noise, but the hitch handle then moves to the 8 o'clock position and the locking jaws are closed. This hitch as a true Holland Binkley head. We've never done a pull test. Any position less than 8 o'clock means you're not locked and you have to start over.

RE: Repair Price

If you can fix it, great! If you can't, you pay for expertise, and dealerships are generally more expensive. We had to have the compressor replaced in a 2007 Ford Freestyle. It came to $1200. Luckily we had a bumper-to-bumper warranty, and our deductive was $100. That was our final cost.

RE: Chirping alarms

Thanks. I was wondering if there was a difference between house hardwired and RV hardwired.
ReneeG 09/08/22 05:06pm Tech Issues
RE: Chirping alarms

No I didn't. But one more comment is that it is is hard wired, not a battery Thanks Even if it is hard-wired, wouldn't it still have a battery as a backup and if it is going bad you would be alerted.

Did we ever hear back from the OP?

RE: Mini Split A.C. in their fiver

We had one installed in our bedroom. In the 12 years we've had it, we rarely use it because we haven't had the need like we thought. It's definitely noisier than the main, but cools really well. Last time we traveled to an area that we needed both, was Moab, so we're ready for hotter climes and glad we have the extra.

RE: Preparing to Leave in Hot Weather

Thats a constant for us, to pack in hot weather to go camping in cooler climes. Our reefer is on the shaded side and since our rig is parked at home and plugged in, I run the AC, at least set to 78,to keep all the food in the cupboards as well as helping the fridge, cool. It's always worked for us.

RE: No power

Check the fuses. Is it plugged in or not?

RE: Chirping alarms

On very rare occasions my alarms will shriek like a dying bird and then nothing for another two weeks or so. I gave up on trying to locate the bird. No kidding. The sensors used in propane and CO detectors aren't very selective about what they'll detect. Lots of things other than propane or CO will set them off - Hair spray, nail polish (and nail polish remover), just about anything containing alcohol... The gases produced by unsealed lead-acid batteries can also set them off, particularly while the batteries are being recharged. Exactly how we found that our batteries were going bad. One of the alarms kept going off, and I can't remember now which one, even after replacing it because it was old. I kept smelling this strong sulfur/acid smell and opened up the battery compartment. Oh man!!! An inspection of the batteries showed they were leaking, bulging, and bad. Replaced them and no more alarms.

RE: Chirping alarms

Ditto on all the recommendations. We've had to eventually replace our CO2 and propane detectors due to aging out.

RE: Best leveler for travel trailer?

Our fifth wheel is a little over 13k and we use the lego like leveling blocks and have had no problems with them shattering. We also have those Anderson curved levelers you back up into and stop when you're level, but don't use them as much as the linking ones.
