RE: Pin Box again Moryde vs Trailair

bucky and teebone, you realize your responding to a post that's a year old - right? I do the .....subject was Trailair...... should I start a new thread?........Mr Moderator HE!! no, rock and roll. Well at least now you got someone to agree with you :B Carry on . Thanks just thought I would get some ideas on air pressure in the trailair maybe the information gets stale after a year....lol but seriously is there a time limit on threads and information asking for a friend? I don't think there is any time limit, I was just having some fun with 12V . There was some discussion earlier in this thread on tire pressure on the tow vehicle , there was the reply here today agreeing with 12V ,prior to that it seemed most run max inflation when towing a fifth wheel, I do . But mine is also a SRW , not a dually. The point made on using the inflation chart according to weight was 12V thinks tire inflation creates chucking, IMO it does not.

RE: Battery over charging

Without changing the converter do they make something I can install in-line to keep from over charging my batteries. If I leave my 5th wheel plugged in all the time it will eventually boil my batteries unless I turn off the battery switch. I was hoping that maybe they make something that I can just install in-line to keep this from happening, but still keep the batteries charged. Thanks I was under the impression these newer converters maintained the batteries . I sold my previous fifth wheel this past spring ,had two group 27 batteries in it that I purchased in late 2009 ,still going strong , that fifth wheel was plugged in 24/7 for 10 years, and never had an issue with boiling the batteries dry.

RE: comfortable ride in an one ton dually??

My dually rides like a chuck wagon empty but like a Cadillac when it has a load. If you guys don't like the loaded ride it's time to wave the white flag. I was going to say, a fifth wheel softens the ride considerably on my 3500 SRW short bed. Agree it would be time to change activities . Even with mine unloaded its fine with the rear down to 45 psi . It is a truck

RE: 5th wheel adapter for goose neck

Poor penetration! Welder should go hide under the bed after doing that. Poor penetration, plus should of been welded all the way around. Probably another one of those I welded in high school guys, okay you are hired .

RE: I need new Tires

At this point, it appears we have a "Yes, there are.... No, there aren't!" type of argument. Since one can't post a link to something that doesn't exist, then we need a links to posts where they are said to exist. I did a quick google search. but didn't find any posts, but maybe I am using key words that don't bring them up. As someone who is interested from a technical point of view, I am asking for help. Please!! Post some links. As said in my previous post I googled the Endurance ,and there was some reading to be had . Reports of lost tread , bubbles in the tread etc, and a few pictures . I googled Goodyear Endurance tire failures , and just telling what I read . If you want to read it google it same as I did, as was suggested by another on this thread, they apparently found the same reading I did. It was not difficult . They probably felt the same way I do about links, if you really want to know ,go looking, google it . Some have made claims that there are only road hazard problems with the Endurance, the links I read suggest otherwise ,seems to be a few defective tires. All I can say is read it ,and come to your own conclusion, you are the tire expert . Maybe you can give some light on these reports on the Endurance . If I remember correctly you gave a glowing report on Endurance awhile back , correct me if I am wrong . So I googled "Endurance" and no tire related stuff in the first 10 pages. I then googled "Goodyear Endurance", and 10 pages later, still didn't find any reported failures. So - again - links please. "Goodyear Endurance Tire Failures"

RE: I need new Tires

Plain and simple. GY ENDURANCE has ZERO reported failures being on the market for over 3 years now. Simply choose your size and load range n get er dun. One you have done so maintain proper tire pressure and don't look back! OH yea if YA care they are US Made! I suggest you take a quick look with Google. There are several failures listed Some interesting reading. A lot of tread separations , some damage ,several with bubbles in the tread . Hard to say whether defects or road hazard , but the Endurance seems to be getting plenty of press . As been said before the ratings on their E’’s are pretty liberal , I suspect they are not up to their weight ratings . I’m sure on lighter applications they will perform okay , heavier fifth wheels , there are much better choices .

RE: I need new Tires

Tire was sent to GY and received a check for a replacement. Thanks. It would be nice to give details when mentioning an issue. Would be nice to know the date code. What also would be nice if we knew why another Goodyear tire blew ,and what damage if any it did to another fifth wheel.

RE: Colors of trucks!

Back in 1981 I was driving a 74 GMC Jimmy that I had completely rebuilt , entire new body ,but the hood ,and tailgate , painted it white . Drove that until 1995 , wanted a new truck, leased a 1995 Chev 1/2 ton, only lease I ever did. I had been in a white vehicle for 14 years, wanted a different color. There were three of those Chevs sitting on the dealers lot side by side , dark Green ,white ,and a red one. The green looked the prettiest to me, so I bought it. It didn't take a month to want to be rid of that dark color, it was a long 3 year lease :B I ordered ,and bought the early 99 Superduty 350 crew cab in July of 1998 , WHITE , and its been white cars ,and trucks since then.

RE: BW 3300 with Ford 6.5 box

Assuming you can hit the cab with all conventional non-slider hitches, your best shot at avoiding a slider is likely the Andersen. The hitch, itself, gives you 5" of setback from the cab. Then, add about 4" to that if you can get away with the standard install of the kingpin adapter. Assuming your pinbox has clearance from the bedrails and tailgate in that position (as mine does), you gain a healthy 9" in total. I had a Superglide in my previous truck and I loved how I never had to worry about hitting the cab. What I didn't love was getting the hitch in and out of the truck and its robbing me of 250lbs of payload. It literally takes me 15 minutes to install my Andersen (all 38lbs of it) and I take my time. My truck has a slightly longer bed (6'10") and I have miles of clearance to the cab in tight turns. My kingpin is at the same distance from my cab with the adapter for the Andersen in the forward position putting it closer to the cab as it was with my Reese slider in the tow position. I have no issues backing my fifth wheel . We just returned from a hunting trip, and as always I have a tight turn to get into my RV pad beside my home . The pad is 10 feet wide , my house on one side ,and property line ,and trees on the other, its a tight fit . I have to crank it pretty tight ,not an issue . I would say I am in the 70 degree range, a lot tighter then I want to on dry pavement., and cement. As one asked can I go 90 degrees ,no . I can get close ,but getting in my driveway is as tight as I have ever had to go.

RE: I need new Tires

Tire was sent to GY and received a check for a replacement. Was it determined it was another faulty Goodyear tire ? Goodyear usually will not reimburse road hazard failures. Did you replace them with another set of Goodyears .

RE: BW 3300 with Ford 6.5 box

If you have to worry about 212# you are pushing it. If you had to add another 212 # with your setup would you , with already being over your weight ratings , or close to it ???

RE: cleaning the outside of the 5'er

The only way to actually remove the "ghosting" effect is to wet sand the entire trailer. 1500 grit and then 1800 grit. Even then it's not 100%. The best way is to remove the decals when new and wax it right away, along with every 9-12 months going forward. Once it is ghosted it is not likely that you will ever be able to get rid if that. I tried , and after 12 years of ownership I gave up on my 2008 Montana that I bought new .

RE: BW 3300 with Ford 6.5 box

No problem til there is!!! I had to laugh on that one :B Pretty sure that applies to everything .
cummins2014 10/19/20 12:15pm Fifth-Wheels
RE: cleaning the outside of the 5'er

Just use a wash and wax to clean as usual. The decal ghosts will become less defined over time, and before you know it you will have low luster all over. Just as an older RV, like mine, should look. I disagree, we have friends that leave their fifth wheel in Arizona all year, and the shadows have yet to disappear on their 2009 Montana fifth wheel. They had some replaced , others not, and you can still see the shadows after baking in the Arizona heat ,and sun for several years.

RE: BW 3300 with Ford 6.5 box

Before you buy an Anderson, look at the pictures on Amazon. I have a short box chev with a B&W Companion. Great hitch, solid. I don't have a slider so I have to be careful when backing. My trailer is older so it is square up front. I don't think I need a slider. I tow with the Andersen ,and also a short bed . Yes I would think you have to be careful, I have the rounded corners on mine which is newer ,and no real issues with the Andersen . I have since turned the Andersen adapter around ,putting the fifth wheel closer to the cab, putting the pin slightly forward on the axle, instead of rear of center. Still not issue backing up.

RE: Fifth wheel trailer suspension

We upgraded to the Roadmaster Comfort Ride and it was a big improvement. I was sold on this Roadmaster comfort ride suspension, and shocks, bought a used fifth wheel from a friend, he had upgraded to the Roadmaster, and went with disc brakes . The initial tow going home it felt great towing, and I never dreamed how well disc brakes stopped a fifth wheel. Would never own another fifth wheel without disc brakes. But here is my take on a few trips now with the Roadmaster ,would never install it as an upgrade . I have had two fifth wheels now with 15,500 GVWR an older Montana with MorRyde suspension, and this present fifth wheel with the Roadmaster . Now with a few trips loaded with this Roadmaster , its not comparable with MorRyde , IMO MorRyde is the better suspension by far.

RE: Fifth wheel trailer suspension

Has anyone done or have info on these items I have 1996 skyline 24’ fifth wheel tandem axel 1 converting to an independent suspension 2. Installed a anti roll bar to trailer suspension similar to sway bars on vehicles for mor more stable tow Thats a pretty small trailer needing any additional suspension upgrade. Especially IS suspension . Maybe add some shocks or rework the old leaf springs or replace.
