RE: Casita vs "conventional" small trailers

Though Canada produces several fiberglass clamshell lines, Oliver is not one of them. Very nice though.

RE: WiFi Hot Spot App

Foxfi and PDAnet won't work on my phone either, but I think if you're using an older phone that doesn't have the latest, greatest Android, you'd be good. It/they were awesome back in the day.

RE: Can my truck tow this?

So, it'll be a white knuckle drive then? I'm just trying to prevent any damage to the truck or trailer.It won't necessarily be a white knuckle drive. The very first thing to address would be a good weight distributing/anti-sway hitch. Second would likely be airing up the tires to max pressure, and consider up grading them to LT tires. I would be fairly concerned about being over the hitch rating. In my mind that's the most likely failure point. You could remedy that by upgrading too. I would get a more capable towing platform.

RE: Stabil or Seafoam for long term gas can storage?

Just to add to the mass confusion. I have been using that evil red Stabil and non-ethanol premium in all my engines, aside from daily drivers, for over 20 years. I did have a chain saw become petulant in that time. As it happens, it wasn't actually used for over 10 years, though it was started once about 5 years previous. One weed eater went about 4 years before I remembered it was there. After a challenging 5 minutes, it ran great. I'm sure the other products are great, but I'm very comfortable sticking with what I know works.

RE: Do you have a bed liner?

FishOnOne, that's the worst "bed liner" I've ever seen. I prefer the sprayed in variety but will always have some kind of bed liner. No reason to beat it up.

RE: Built in vs. Stand-alone GPS?

Another consideration might be a newer system that supports Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Those systems let you use your phone's GPS.

RE: Bathroom vent cover repair

Yes. It's an easy repair. I believe there are two basic designs and you have to figure out which yours is before replacing. If you haven't already, that's a great reason for installing a maxxair fan cover. They don't break down from the elements like the vent covers do. It saved my bacon when my vent cover disintegrated in the middle of the winter one year. I can't imagine how much snow/water would have ended up in my trailer.

RE: Chevy's I4 2.7 turbo engine

I remember way back when everybody was talking about Ford's Ecoboost "screaming" to keep up with the V8s. Reality is that it usually blows them away, and even tows at lower RPMs than those V8s. Ford's 2.7L Ecoboost is a beast. Chevy's version will likely shake out pretty well too.

RE: help picking new tt

Bigfoot RV has a couple trailers that might meet your needs nicely. They even offer built in generators. A little pricey but should be a solid performer for full time living. JMHO

RE: Half ton towable fifth wheel

Hey, I thought it was a pretty cool trailer that offered a lot in a lighter platform. The slide looked very slick with much less chance for leaks compared to what I usually see. That goes for the whole rig too. I don't need a 40 foot long, 20 foot wide house everywhere I go. I would entertain owning a fifth wheel like this in a heart beat. With a fatter wallet of course.

Half ton towable fifth wheel

Not exactly a travel trailer subject, but I think many of us might try out a fiver if they were light enough. This one seems very nice to me. The video is over a year old, so maybe it's already been shared around here. Celtic Rambler

RE: Tongue jack maintenance

I don't recall any required maintenance for mine. It's about 14 years old now and still working great.

RE: Casita vs "conventional" small trailers

Don't forget about Bigfoot Trailers! Probably the nicest of all when you bear in mind the variety of sizes and layouts.

RE: Insulating exposed tanks

I did the heater pads, then insulated with foam board and expanding foam at the corners, then hung coroplast between the frame rails surrounding the whole thing. I also added a heat pad to the area where the black/grey tank drains merge, then wrapped it too. Probably overkill. I've never needed to use that last feature.

RE: Broken key, locked out of TT, no spare :(

My trailer has external storage that leads to the inside. I was able to open the storage door that goes under the dinette bench and send a neighbor kid through the storage bay into the trailer, where she came around and opened the door. Just a thought.

RE: 2020 Silverado 1500 Duramax and the Ike

I used to complain about their testing methods too. I've decided there's nothing wrong with it. They're letting the vehicle make the towing decisions instead of themselves. Most vehicles would improve with manual intervention at certain points.

RE: Battery storage

My WFCO wasn't awesome by any means, but aside from no real boost mode, it charged and maintained the batteries OK. I used to mess with removing the batteries, but that is a pain, literally. Mine sit on the tongue of the trailer that's plugged into shore power. I haven't noticed that huge electric bill noted above. Least amount of effort, most bang for the buck.

RE: Ford reaches tentative UAW contract.

You know who loves unions? The non union workers that do the same work in the same town as union workers. When unions leave wages drop. A side note to this is that right to work states generally have lower cost of living and higher employment rates. It is a fact based on US data that on average non-RTW states have considerably more unions and a much higher the cost of living. A higher salary is needed to cover the higher cost of goods because the producers of those goods had to increase the salaries of their workers. It is a perpetual and never ending cycle. Another thing that increases the cost of living is taxes and regulations which most unions give to the political side that generally likes to increase these things whenever they can. So just because the average salary is higher, does not necessarily mean they are better off when you consider all things. Not saying that all union are bad. I am just saying that you have to take all things into account when weighing the pros and cons of it all. You can't just look at one single thing and say one is better(or worse) than the other.I live in a RTW state but work in a unionized state. Yep, it costs more to live over there, but virtually every metric is better. Especially for low income groups, single women, non-whites, etc. Better education, better health care, higher income, better outcomes in general. By far in most cases. Of course, I was forced to join a union against my will and still feel a little bent about it, but my future is far better off than it would have been if I'd not crossed the border to work. It's actually VERY common around here.
