RE: Keeping fridge door open while in storage

Those blue clips do not stay when moving the trailer. Good luck with them. I'd be looking for another solution. Like the foam and bungie concept.

RE: 6.6 Chevy gas engine

Agree with Busdriver. Emissions are crazy on modern diesels. When something breaks (not if) it gets expensive really fast. Love the performance of the diesel (whichever brand flavor you like) but my next truck will be a gas version.

RE: Towing with 2004 Lincoln Aviator

If the vehicle is in good condition and well maintained just take your time. Your not going to win any races, nor should you want to. A more robust TV would be great, but if you are safe I'd go camping. Not everyone can afford a new vehicle. That said, I do think 7k is optimistic for a tow rating for a Aviator (basically a explorer). I pulled the same trailer manor 3023 with both a 99 Ford Ranger with the 4.0 V6 and then with a 98 Explorer with the 5.0 V8. With the 5 speed trans and 4:10 gearing the Ranger was a much better experience. Lots of things go into a good TV imo. FWIW. That same trailer I pulled with the Ranger, I then put behind a 1 ton diesel. Guess what... they both did the job, held acceptable highway speeds and got us there.

RE: Old style propane cylinders

Yes, you should retain a two stage regulator. A search on amazon or a local supplier should yield new pigtails to put between the regulator and the newer style tank. If you only wish to use one tank, just swap on side and leave the other in place unless you secure and use a regulator used for a single cylinder. I've witnessed the changeover portion of a regulator fail and allow a tank to empty out when the second cylinder was not in place.

RE: Replacing front landing gear box and motor.

Having replaced landing gear 3x now I doubt the jacks will allow the trailer to drop with just removing the gearbox and motor. However, in this scenario where your under the front of the trailer I would either hitch to the truck or build up cribbing immediately behind the landing gear under the frame. Each time I've done this I've hitched up. Close quarters but very doable.
