RE: sealed, vacuum bonded roof repair

You need to supply more info regard the rv what brand etc have never heard of a vacuum sealed roof, walls yes, I find it hard to believe any repair facility replaced rubber membrane whiteout repair to structure and roof plywood, maybe some pictures of what you are referring to. Where you are located may also be good. Frank

RE: How long is too long to be extended

In Oz many shortens the length of insert in tow bar as the longer the length from ball to center of rear axle the greater the lift of front of vehicle making steering light. We have many crashes where trailer sway overturned both Vehicle and trailer., not a good idea. I have seen mathematical formulas for how much weight is removed but don’t know where to find at the moment. Frank

RE: What is unusual/ wrong with these Pickup Trucks?

Ford stopped importing the F250 in 2006 it had the 7.3 international harvester engine an was build in Brazil I believe with the right hand stirring wheel, not sure about F150.. we had a F100 with the 4.1l inline 6 and later a 2006 F250 with the 7.3 still very popular hear in OZ. Since then had aF150 with the 5.4 gas, a F250 6.2 gas , and now a 2015 6,7 diesel. Frank.

RE: Australian making up for lack of 5th Wheelers in Australia

No more than 3.7m from center of axles to rear is the rule.

RE: Australian making up for lack of 5th Wheelers in Australia

It may have a door on other side as well, but it looks to be a bit to long on the rear over hang but hard to be sure. Frank.

RE: Crash in Australia (tongue weight). Video.

RE: Crash in Australia (tongue weight). Video.

Yes way to many accidents like that here in Oz, it is recommend to have about 10% on the ball here but some imported vans as low as 5%. Many vans op to 3.5t most vehicles vill allow weight distribution hitch but not all. Many people starting to go for the American pick ups but very expensive hear . Frank

RE: What type of insulation?

The problem with anything solid or spray foam is if you ever has to run a new wire or fix a water leak. Frank.

RE: Wheel Bearing Temp Question

The bearing temperatures are all over the place and not hot on same side so not sun, maybe bad adjustment maybe not taken in exactly same position. What ever you do don’t shoot some grease in the grease fittings or you are very likely to end op with it all over the brakes (yes I know all about spinning the wheel, it still happens to often) leave alone or dismantle and do it properly. Good luck Frank

RE: Tire pressure

Weight of your trailer on axles divided by number of tyres = xxxx find tyre pressure chard for your tyres and it will tell what pressure to run them at. Frank

RE: Air conditioner of generator & inverter

Hi all thanks so far. Pianotuna by the way I forgot that when we installed the inverter we naturally had the power of but had not turned air conditioner of so when we started op inverter the air conditioner came on and ran for several minutes before we shut it off, so I can’t se why it should not be able to supply the extra power for startup, also it is the micro air soft start on it and they say it will run on 2000 ? So hope it will work with the 2200. Thanks. Frank.

Air conditioner of generator & inverter

We have a 15000btu air conditioner and had a Honda IS3000 generator that was stolen. I have since installed the soft start gismo sorry the name escapes me, We have also got a 3000W Magnum MSH3012 inverter with the share power ability so wondering if the Honda 2200 will be sufficient to run it, also have 600w of solar suppling max 30A and 520A of batteries. Thanks. Frank

RE: Pullrite Slider hitch appears to be loose

Yes tighten the bolt on front of hitch till it is fairly hard to turn hitch by hand. I have also added a piece of 1/2” hose to the pins that holds the turn table in place. Frank

RE: Checking Truck For Level?

Super Dave you are correct, but as also suggested check that you are parked on a level surface. Frank.

RE: dometic appliances sold in the usa with 220v?

We are in OZ and have a partly converted FW. Extra door on the left, gas lines op grated to all copper with stop coks at all appliances. Don’t have to be to Australian code for own use but can’t sell. El new power board, breakers and multi strand rated cable for 240V power points, 15A supply socket outside, all 110V appliances run true step down transformer. Only thing that don’t work is the inverter charger as internal switch won’t close as the Hz are wrong. Frank
