RE: Reese Sway Control Bar

Thanks for all the great advice! I just got back today and the swaybar worked great to stabilize the trailer. I backed off the adjustment nut a quarter turn from where it was set from the factory and used the "on/off" handle as directed in the instructions by tightening it down but leaving it parallel to the bar. No sway at all at any speed. I'm sure it helped that it was pretty stable to begin with, but there would be noticable sway in high winds and when passing semi trucks. No issues any more with that.

RE: Reese Sway Control Bar

Thanks guys! The biggest thing I worry about is having it too tight and having it break the hitch head or the trailer tongue. The thing is with these things is there really isn't a whole lot of information out there about adjusting them. Watched a few YouTube videos but it sounds like it's more trial and error than anything else.

Reese Sway Control Bar

Finishing up the first season with our TT and decided to get a friction sway control bar for our next trip. We have the Reese style hitch head with trunion style springbars. The hitch head already had the little sway control ball installed as well as on the TT. My question is about dialing in the amount of friction. How much friction should there be? Out of the box, it's tightened enough to where I can't slide the bar in or out at all. If I loosen the "On Off" lever, pull the bar out and tighten the lever back, if I put all my weight on it, it will barely slide back in. We towed the TT about 1,000 miles this year without much sway at all. Just wanted to add the swaybar for additional safety. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

RE: Sanitizing Waterlines

Ok thanks for the advice! We weren't planning on using the freshwater tank but Wildtoad makes a good point. We would rather not be without water, so we will sanitize the whole thing and use the freshwater tank. Anything special I need to do with the water heater? Drain it and let it fill with the bleach water mixture?

Sanitizing Waterlines

Getting our camper ready to use and wondering if we should be doing anything to sanitize the fresh water lines? We are only planning on using the city water connection and not use the fresh water tank. I hooked it up, flushed out the antifreeze from all faucets, took the waterheater out of bypass and tested that. I think I found the low point drains - do I need to drain those out too? Also, do I need to drain the water heater before taking it out on the road? Anything else I need to do to de-winterize it?

RE: Toilet treatment and sewer hose

Thanks everyone for all the good advice! I tend to overthink things a bit so I was having a little anxiety over trying to decide on what to get! Guess it's better to keep things simple. I'll probably mount a tube under the bumper to store the hose. There's a hose in the bumper, but I'm assuming at this point it's got pinholes. This campground is a county park and I've never heard of a greywater only drain before - only full sewer hookup so we'll see what that's all about. I'll probably just try to keep the grey tank as full as I can to use for flushing out the hose.

Toilet treatment and sewer hose

Being new to travel trailers, I need to figure out what toilet treatment to use and what sewer dump hose to get. The campground we are staying at for our first trip has a a greywater drain at each site, but a dumpstation for the black water. I'm looking at either this sewer kit: Camco 39551 Or, Camco Revolution. Anyone with experience with either one? Also, is there anything special I need for the greywater drain? Looking at the Camco TST Ultra Concentrate RV Toilet Treatment - Is that any good, or should I get something different? Finally, since I don't have a built in flushing system, I'm looking at the RhinoBlaster for flushing out the tank. Does this all sound good, or are there other things I should be looking at? Don't need anything fancy as we will only be using this maybe 5 times a year. Thanks in advance for your help!

RE: Skyline Nomad Battery

Ok thanks! Looks like a standard NOCO battery box will fit the spot. At least this is one more thing done before our first trip!

Skyline Nomad Battery

We are new to travel trailers and just bought a 1991 Skyline Nomad Weekender. One thing we are trying to figure out is the battery. It didn't come with one or any provision to hold one down. The spot for it measures 11 1/4"x8". Any suggestions on what battery box/battery that might fit? Thanks in advance!
