RE: Battery Replacement?

I'm still running the J.C PENNY battery with the lifetime warranty from 1972. :)

RE: Hot water in new 5er Montana

Tell her to join the Montana Owners Club forum. A very large active Montana only forum with lots of great helpful folks there. This is the best advice. The Montana owners forum will have a greater concentration of Montana owners obviously and you'll get a much greater volume of answers on point.

RE: Forest River

You should have a warranty sheet in your large packet of instructions describing the type of roof material used. That sheet should have the info you seek

RE: How many strokes??

...and there's about 500 YouTube videos on the topic. No need to make it more complicated than it is.

RE: How many strokes??

To the OP and as noted above and in my prior answer there is no set number of strokes. Follow the instructions

RE: Walmart selling LiFePo4 batteries $539

Gdetrailer, Yes, I thought it was being backed up by Walmart. GD is basically correct, they kind of operate like Amazon. But, every once in a while they have a great deal I can't pass up and I just have it shipped to the local store for free. Don't know what their return policy is but it's assume it's pretty liberal like their in store returns. Never had to return anything. I think you can do returns at the store but somebody should check me on that. They had a smoking deal on the Carlisle Radial Trailer tires I purchased for my old trailer a couple years ago. Discount Tire is right next door so they matched the price.

RE: Size Matters???

Buy what you like. The truck won't know any difference.

RE: How many strokes??

The center hub on the ez lube hubs is normally dry initially so it takes A LOT OF GREASE the first time. Easily half a tube. You pump the grease in until you see clean fresh grease come out the end. I use the red grease to see this easier. The next time you'll use much less grease because the center of the hub is now full. There is no set number of pumps. Plenty of YouTube videos to show you how. Rotating the wheel while you're doing it is a must.

RE: Question on Hydraulic Fluid

Make sure all your hydraulics are retracted...slides in and leveling system is up. Then check level. Our Lippert system uses auto trans fluid. X2 Makes a big difference in the level in the reservoir.

RE: Max Air Vent Cover Maintenance

That's why I like the Maxx Air II that has the quick release pins so you can easily check the condition of the vent base caulk. The vent cover itself is never caulked as noted above.

RE: 1984 carriage brake magnets

You are much better off, replacing the entire brake assembly back plate. Some of the older axle manufacturers have been bought up or gone out of business making finding exact parts for that brake assembly difficult or impossible to find. New backplates gets you not only new magnets but shoes plus all the mechanicals and is fully assembled. Just remove 4 nuts holding the backplate to the axle and the old assembly falls off. You will need to get a left and right assembly, don't mix them up. This one in the pix is for 3,500 lb axles which use 10" drum 2.5" wide brake shoes. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41T5YeEPR3L._AC_.jpg height=300 width=500 Found HERE for $130 for a pair (Left and Right) Back plate assemblies are fairly universal and fits quite a few different axle manufacturers (including old defunct axle manufacturers). Select via the size of the brake drum, typically 2,000 lb axles will have 7" drums, 3,500 lb axles will have 10" drums, 5,000 lb axles will have 12" drums.. Whatever you decide to do, do BOTH L and R sides at the same time, otherwise you will have uneven braking which will pull to one side. X2.

What brand are the tires?

RE: WD/Sway Control

I use a Reese with dual antisway bars. Tracks straight and true. Also have Reese Dual-Cam. Works great! C.B. A third vote for Reese Dial Cam! That's another good choice

RE: WD/Sway Control

You might want to consider an Equalizer with 4 point sway control. Loved the one I had. X2. That would be my choice.

RE: Found It, What a joke. Buying in 2021 LOL. You can keep it.

That is what happens when supply is low and demand is up. No different than if you wanted to get top dollar if you sold your truck so why fault the dealership if they do the same? Agree 100 % Free enterprise at work. Free enterprise is what made this country great! !

RE: Capture plate?

No need for a capture plate as long as you visually verify your hitch is PROPERLY latched and there is no space between the pinbox plate and the hitch plate. To the original poster please disregard the quoted post. To Cummins12V98 - Giving bad advice is worse than giving no advice. You have no idea what a pullrite superglide hitch is or how it works. Without the capture plate the hitch would not operate properly and damage would occur. I stand corrected! "Capture plate" to me is the device that stops the RV from dropping if high hitched for example. I get you but Superglide is a different animal that requires that specific plate to rotate the head of the hitch. It's a great slider hitch but I went in a completely different direction with an Andersen. So glad I didn't go the slider route BTW

RE: Capture plate?

I am buying a 2007 weekend worrier superlite LS 2805. I am getting a superglide hitch. What capture plate do I need. Thanks Depends on your pin box. All brands use various pin boxes

RE: Help with choosing our 5th wheel (and truck)

I really really really like your budget. A world of options await you.
Ron3rd 07/06/21 04:44pm Fifth-Wheels

When I had the trailer tires replaced I had metal valve stems put on and then added 507 TPMS . I noticed on Thursday coming home the tires on the west side of the trailer were running 10 degrees hotter and 2 lbs. higher pressure. Is this normal that the sun side runs a little hotter? Something happened on the way home that was really strange. I have been towing campers since 1996 and have never had this experience. It was kind of weird and a little spooky, WE pulled in to a rest area on I43 and the truck/trailer side of the rest area was completely empty. I think there were 30 slots there and we were the only thing in the rest area for at least 1/2 hr. Perfectly normal. TST owner for over 10 years BTW
