Until you have towed with Disks on a RV you have no idea the improvement! X2 for sure !!! Housted X3 I absolutely love the disc brakes. Had Performance Trailer Braking do the install. X4 The each time I do the pull test I am reminded how much better the disc stops. With drums having the brakes applied manually I would always pull it forward a few inches. With Disc brakes the trailer doesn’t move.

Two summers back had Performance Trailer Brakes install Titan Discs in our driveway. Money well spent, all done is less than 8 hours which would have taken me a couple days. Didn’t want to have the driveway occupied for more than a day. Not only is it night and day better at stopping, but I no longer have any issues with Dexters problem of drum brakes getting soaked with grease. Now I can look under and visually inspect the seals without pulling a thing.

RE: Sailun Tire Failure

Man my head hurts reading this thread......:S Ditto. And looking at the OP photo, the tread of the Sailun tire is intact.

RE: How to cancel a reservation with ReserveAmerica.

I just Login to RA. The go to MY RESERVATIONS. Open up the reservation you want to cancel. Press the DETAILS button. And there are three choices at the top: CHANGE . CANCEL . PRINT. Seems pretty simple to me. This has always worked well for me.

RE: 1st time buyer - 31 vs 35 ft trailer?

I agree with getting the rig that fits your family. We downsized from 35-30’ and fine does give us more sites in State or County Parks we use. 4 ‘ difference doesn’t sound like much but most of the distance was from the hitch to the trailer axles which was noticeable. We love our floor plan have the two of us and two medium size dogs, occasionally grandkids. Fitting 5 on a rainy weekend could be a challenge.

RE: Sailun Tire Failure

A junk China tire would have beat the snot out of the rig.

RE: Honda Generator Recall

I picked up my old Honda 2000 last week from my local Honda repair shop, he showed me a shelf of 2200’s waiting for the recall fix which hasn’t been determined yet. The most recent Honda recall applies to EG2800i and EB2800i inverter gensets, not the new EU2200i. No amount of Google searching turns up an EU2200i recall ... curious. :h Just sharing what I was told by my local authorized Honda dealer and repair shop. I have to believe they know what they are talking about. Now, we all know it is true with the document just posted above this. No Fake News

RE: Honda 2200 inverter discontinued??

2200s went around in 2012 How are others to interpret this??....Please Advise. It may be unintentional, but so far, this thread seem to be more about instilling falsehoods rather than facts... Typo....”went” was auto corrected and not caught. Should have been.....2200s “weren’t” around in 2012 I’m pretty sure that isn’t a falsehood

RE: Honda 2200 inverter discontinued??

2200s went around in 2012 yet the Honda Repair shop has them all off the shelf as well as others. If I owned a 2200 I wouldn’t rely in the internet but contact Honda direct or an Authorized Honda Repair facility.

RE: Honda 2200 inverter discontinued??

I thought the 2200 had a recall? I had one of our 2000s worked on recently at our local Honda repair shop. He showed me a shelf with 2200s that are recalled and waiting for Honda to determine the fix.

RE: If money was not a issue

Can’t do all of the above since I’ve done the disc brake conversation already. An amazing difference IS would be my top choice since the roof is about 3 years old and kept under cover when not in use

RE: Fiberglass insulation that doesn't stay wet or attract mice?

You might think of what a buddy did with his after he repaired a tank leak. He stuffed fiberglass into zip lock bags before putting back in. Not a fool proof fix but better than doing nothing. At my local dollar store I can get 2 1/2 gallon zip locks, the box has 5 and is $1

RE: Honda Generator Recall

I picked up my old Honda 2000 last week from my local Honda repair shop, he showed me a shelf of 2200’s waiting for the recall fix which hasn’t been determined yet. Said be glad I had a 2000 if needing it used. I also have a newer 2000 and asked him if i could determine if it is recalled, he said the 2200 were and not the 2000s. Didn’t mention the 2800. If you have a 2200 I would check it out.

RE: Thomas Payne, Rec Pro, or Best Furniture

We’ve had our Thomas Payne reclinig sofa and stand alone recliner for 3 1/2 years and ar satisfied with the way it has worn, we are not full timers. The sofa we had is three parts with the storage box in the middle to kept the air bed which we quit trying to use. The storage box has been a good spot to have some things in while traveling but limits the width of the cushion even though it’s padded. The stand alone recliner is difficult for my wife to use so now we have a small ottoman for that purpose. When the day comes we replace them, Lazy Boys will be our top choice

RE: Bronze with wet bolts or never fail bushings?

I'd say wet bolts/ bronze bushings so they can be lubed with grease. Just MHO. X2 X3

RE: I camouflaged my Honda EU2000

Watchers your video, a great idea, but it will cost me not just for one but two.....?? And will cost a bit more, as it gave me an idea of using a vinyl wrap on my truck rocker panels that has a paint issue.

RE: Best lube for rubber and gears on slide out.

For the gear tracks I use Slip Plate Dry Lube For the wiper seals I use pledge furniture polish AND I keep a good coat of wax on the sides of the slides where the wipers rub. Ditto on all accounts.

RE: Mounting solar

Mounted ours like noted above using Dicor Self Leveling below the bracket, then above it to seal all including the screws. Using the wall between the bathroom and living room in our fifth wheel where the 1 1/2” abs vent line runs, drilled a hole in the roof to run the wire down the wall and into the basement pass through area. Located a combiner box on the roof to connect three roof panels, then sealed it with Dicor. Three years and no leaks

RE: Sewer smell

We had the same type of steel in the kitchen area caused by a faulty air admittance vent under the sink. Replaced it, smell was gone.

RE: Adding 2nd air, converting from 30 amp to 50 amp

Our rig came with 30 amp and no second AC prep. Since I may add one at a point in the future as well as some additional circuits now, I updated to a 50 amp service. Had to change distribution panels for both 110 and 12v since the OEM was combined, plus the cord and ends to have the 4 wire needed. Cost was less than $300 and about 7 hours of my time. I’ve got a pretty easy path of getting the wire to the vent in the bedroom if we add the AC. Good luck with yours.
