RE: carpet dyeing

My experience with trying to dye anything is the bleeding long after the job is done. First spill or when it gets wet will be a test.

RE: Stripping down a rotten camper

Sawzall around the top to take the roof off. Then cut down the corners of the walls top to bottom. The walls should just fold down.

RE: Battery Disconnect

The propane storage compartment is heavily vented at the bottom and the door will be wide open. It would likely have to be a full on geyser of propane to be an issue, which you would surely see or smell. However, I don't see how opening the propane door is significantly easier than opening the front storage door.

Light lenses

My 5th wheel is missing some of the light lenses and others were found to be cracked. I assume that this is from sides flexing? Anyone else experience this?

RE: Cover or not to cover

For those that build, what did you figure the break even point of building versus paying for covered storage was? After getting some bids on a RV port style cover with 1/3 sides, it was a 9 year break even.

RE: On the road breakdown stories..

Some buddies and I did a day trip to the lake to do some fishing and on our way home we followed a travel trailer that was driving erratically. Several miles down the highway the trailer blew a tire and the driver never knew it. It took us a bit to catch up to him but finally waved him over. That trailer was all over the road. I don't know if that lead to the tire blowing or the bad tire led to the trailer wondering all over the place.

RE: Installing a second battery

In my 5th wheel, I've got 2 batteries. I put the negative cable from the 5er on the negative post of battery 1 and the positive cable on the positive post of battery 2. The + to + and - to - from each battery is tied together. It works, someone can tell me if I'm screwing anything up.

RE: X-chocks and 6 point levelers

36' total length unit and it has never wobbled with the 6 point leveling system. I put a short 4 x 4 on both sides of 2 tires.

RE: Root Beer

Growing up, Mug was always my favorite and A&W not so much. As an adult, Henry Weinhardt's by far the best.

RE: Winterizing Travel Trailer

Sorry folks..but the only way to make sure the pump in our 5'er is winterized is to put some antifreeze into the FW tank and suck it thru the pump. Pump has no winterizing kit attached to it and is not accessible to put one on it. So I run it for 10 or 15 seconds to make sure all water is out of it and then add just enough antifreeze to the tank so the pump will pick it up, then drain the remaining out. Also there's no gravity hole to fill FW tank so I have to pump it in with another pump. We have a lever to switch from tank fill or city water usage. Been doing this now for the 7 years we've had it. Come spring I sanitize the tank & system good with bleach and have had no antifreeze foam or after taste. MiloMilo, why do you think that the pump isn't getting winterized by sucking the antifreeze out of the jug?

RE: Real-life experience blocks to aid 6-point leveling system

FWIW, leveling blocks under the jacks hasn't prevented my tires from coming off the ground on the low side. It just prevents the low side jacks from getting an out of stroke error. Blocks need to go under the wheels to prevent them from lifting off the ground.

RE: Window Tint

My windows are a bronze colored glass but I wouldn't classify them as tinted in the respect that they reflect heat. In fact, they may even absorb more heat because of the color.

RE: Window Tint

Can anyone speak to doing it on the RV windows? Our 5th wheel is a hot box and contemplating window tinting or awnings.

RE: 2020 vs 2021 Model

I would knock 35% off MSRP and make that offer. Then be prepared to increase but I would not go beyond 31 or 32% off MSRP. Sounds like you are dealing for a fifth wheel. Dealer #2 is already at 33.2% off but it's a year older. I would want a 2021 model if it were me. I'm not sure that I would want a pandemic period manufactured model suspecting that quality is even less than the questionable build quality of RV's built at any other time. FWIW, I just bought a brand new 2019 model boat and saved a lot. There is no way that I could have afforded the current year model which BTW is identical.

RE: Converting Small BBQ to Propane (help needed)

I have done this with more than one propane device. In some cases I have been able to cut off the end of a hose that has one correct end and add the right fitting on the other end via a barbed fitting and hose clamp. In other instances I have spliced 2 hoses with a barbed coupler.

RE: Tow King Tires

Are you sure they are Tow King? I have had Power King Towmax tires on my boat for years and the name sounds too close.

RE: What truck do I need to pull this trailer

My 2006 Dodge Dually pulls our 5th wheel of similar weight with no issues whatsoever. Plenty of power and no DEF.

RE: Battery question

My 24's never read 13 anything for the 2 years that I have owned them. High 12's maybe when taken off an independent charger but settles in at the low 12's after a day or 2.

RE: To Upgrade TV or Not

Or, his problem could possibly be solved with some simple suspension upgrades. If he is not over weight limit for his current TV AND he is okay with the power, have him check out things like air bags and springs.

RE: Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers

Maybe build a table top for a 60"? Even if you found a 72", it would likely still max at 500 lbs.
