RE: Trailer connect

Computer constantly sends tiny signal down brake wire to sense trailers brake magnets presence. So it knows automatically. What if you have disc brakes...no magnets?

RE: New polar cub Mach 8 AC and the Honda eu2000i question

Actually pretty easy to drain. Flat blade screwdriver...turn it, watch gas drain 30 seconds, close it.

RE: New polar cub Mach 8 AC and the Honda eu2000i question

I have two Honda 2000's. If I need both I run out of a Berg/IPI long run 6 gallon tank. After using the generators I dump the gas tank and run them dry, then drain the carb. No issues yet.

RE: Sailun tires

Sailun has announced a recall for the Vietnamese tires. Owners should be getting letters. Details on the Keystone forum.

RE: For those with no bathroom access during travel mode.

We can squeeze by to get to the bathroom, but I usually just open 2 truck doors and water the road shoulder, or a parking lot, or...

RE: New polar cub Mach 8 AC and the Honda eu2000i question

Does that Coleman Mach 8 cool your Bigfoot pretty good? I've got the Dometic 11,000 that was OEM. It's way too much AC for my 2008 Bigfoot 25C9.4. I always thought I would replace it with a Mach 8.

RE: 3500 CC Running boards?

I have factory ordered OEM running boards on my 2018 Ram CC long bed dually. They're chrome with black rubber on top. They end at the rear of the cab. No issue with the frame mounted Torklifts.

RE: Champion Generator

I bought two 4650 watt Champions this summer from Home Depot. Maybe $7xx? each. Both had issues but resolved at a nearby lawnmower shop under warranty. I will say making initial contact for warranty took several days, but once started it worked out OK. They are very quiet. Neighbors at Kansas Speedway were impressed. I ran them in the bed of my truck.

RE: MorRyde IS is finally happening

This summer, maybe June or July. I don't know who owned it. See you at Richmond?

RE: Puck system & hitch questions

The other alternative would be to get a B&W Turnover ball hitch installed, then put a Industry Standard Rail with a square shank to go in the turnover ball. Easy to install and remove.

RE: New Truck, 2013 Northstar Pop Up

Foldable shop crane (engine hoist), 2,000# capacity from Harbor Freight. $229. Maybe $20 worth of light duty chain and 1/4" shackles will get that tailgate off by yourself.

RE: MorRyde IS is finally happening

I had Performance Trailer Braking out of Norman Oklahoma come to our house and they did a disc brake conversion on our 8,000# axles. They used a Brakerite actuator. Switched the Ram to electric over hydraulic and down the road we go. Absolutely no issues. Love it.

RE: Cheap sunbird locations? Escape Florida summer

We are in the same boat...Houston heat and humidity. August 2020 we spent near Durango Colorado. It was OK but I'm looking for something more midwest or east coast. We spent a little time in Iowa and central Illinois this August. It was warm and occasionally humid but very bearable. I have experienced the biting flies in Ohio and would prefer to avoid that. I hear Michigan has the same flies. Check out Roberts Creek Park (county) around Red Rock Lake near Pella IA. They have full hook ups. There are several COE parks around the lake. We fell in love with Pella, a well scrubbed Dutch town. Be aware when the sprint car Knoxville Nationals are racing in Knoxville everything is full.

RE: Replacing New Trailer King RST+ : Only Option Is Carlisle??

For sure Sailun made in Vietnam are trouble but then what tire for heavy trailers Goodyear 614 way to expensive. I think it's a **** shoot. Goodyear, Sailun, Hercules, close your eyes and pick one. We just got home from on the road...NASCAR at Kansas City and a few days in the Ozarks. We were parked/camped next to a big Newmar diesel that was towing a matching "stacker" type trailer. He had a mix of Goodyear and Sailun on the 3 trailer axles. He didn't like either of them, citing unusual wear patterns. Probably a good chance it was trailer axle issues.

RE: Replacing New Trailer King RST+ : Only Option Is Carlisle??

I had a blowout on a Sailun on our 5th. I replaced with Herculles. So far great. I have Carlisle on a dual axle boat trailer and 2 utility trailers no issues. Had the Carlisles on a Montana 5th wheel no issues. Sailun like other tire mfg has many different tire types...S637 is just one of them. Even the S637 has 16"/17.5"/19.5" sizes so its important in reporting which Sailun size/load range product had a blowout. Several years back one one member posted he had a Michelin XPS Rib blowout. However later we learned the tire was 6 years old and had 30k+ miles on it. But more importantly he ran the tire till it shredded down to the rim. No blow out ...just a run flat. Some folks got upset about finally a XPS Rib blowout and there no different than a ST tire. Makes a big difference when all the facts come out. Last night I remembered I kept the original Sailun spare since it had less than 30 miles on it. I checked the sidewall and it has a date code code of 4316 and made in China. That would make it less than 4 years old when it blew. The unknown variable is that we are the second owners, so no telling how the tires were maintained. I watch pressures pretty close and use a TST tire monitor.

The blowout happened in August 2020. I replaced the Sailuns in January 2021. The trailer is a 2018 Landmark built in 2017. I don't remember the tire build date or its country of origin. I do remember the tire build date was appropriate for the trailer build date.

RE: Host Cascade in service body

May also look at Aluma for flat beds. I think they are in Iowa.

RE: Antonito, CO to Chama, NM Scenic Route

That's great country. I have elk hunted around there. We used to take family vacations there as well. Used to eat at Vera's Mexican cafe on the highway. She moved into a new building in Chama and then seemed to disappear. We are overdue to visit.

RE: New motor home blues…

I think I would skip the dealer and just park it at the front door in Red Bay Alabama.
