RE: Low Battery Voltage

Do you have a 12 volt compressor refrigerator? If so, what is the power consumption vs. the battery specs? Just one battery?

RE: brake shoes

I find that unusual. Did you buy the trailer new to know the brakes only have 10K miles on them? I find the self-adjusting version run warmer as the shoe is always rubbing and have replaced mine with manual adjust versions.

RE: 1996 fleetwood wilderness 37'

Since you are newbies to RV's it may help to locate a local club that may a have a member willing to help you become familiar with the ins & outs of RVing and your RV. Alternatively, perhaps someone on this forum lives close to you and can help. A mobile RV tech might also be a resource you could hire to get familiar with your RV. There's a lot to learn and then the fun begins! Other resources might be a local dealer or the host at a local campground.

RE: Axle Question

I assume you have 3,500 lbs axles on that trailer. Is the new one the same as the originals? Is the new axle mounted so that the arch in the axle tube is high in the center? Does the remaining original axle have a bow in the axle tube like the new one or has it fatigued with age?

RE: Bypassing gas strut on entry door

Yes, the gas strut pops off as you mention. I wanted to do the same with my door except the awning support is in the way. The Camco door holder you reference is also available in metal with a clip that doesn't require the bumper.

RE: Replace just one tire?

If a person doesn't trust the remaining 3 tires, why would you save one for a spare? Buy 5 new tires.

RE: No heat / Furnace not working

The furnace heats using propane; are the tank valves open?

RE: Bought our trailer, now come the questions!

When my latch gets hard to operate I pull the handle to bring the latch into the door and give it a quick spray of WD-40. That lubes the internal sliding surfaces of the latch. I then release it and wipe off excess to keep from soiling clothes. Good for a month or two.

RE: Which Hitch do I buy?

I started with the Equal-i-zer 4 point rated at 1,200 lbs for my 7,800 lbs GVWR trailer. The square receiver for one of the bars cracked after 6 years. I upgraded to the 1,400 lbs Equal-i-zer and it works fine with a margin for a heavier trailer. Using gross rule-of-thumb numbers, tongue weight of your trailer at 15% is 1,050 lbs. You would need the 1,200 at a minimum. I recommend the 1,400.
