Nope.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

Nothing from the OP in a couple days, wonder how he's faring. I'd be curious to hear if he found anything.

RE: Hot water in new 5er Montana

Is this an informational post or a questioning post? Not sure as I don't see any query.

RE: New 4" heavy duty bumper cannot fit Rhino drain hose inside

I'm not impressed with those types of containers. I've seen a few where all that was left was part of the plastic mounting pieces. It's easy to DIY, save money, and have a better container to boot.

RE: Wheel Stop vs Wheel Chocks

By "wheel stops", are you referring to the expanding chocks that fit between the tires? The only brand to use as chocks, IMO of course, are the Roto-Choks, and they don't make those any more. I've read that the expanding between-the-tire chocks can pop out under stress. I use a couple of heavy duty rubber chocks from Harbor Freight. I'll go back to my Roto-Choks when I modify them to fit the new trailer wheel spacing.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

What caused the blowouts? Tread separation, sidewall blowout, or other stuff? May be time for a cheap TPMS to see what that tire is doing. Tread separation all three times. I check tire pressure and adjust if needed before every trip. I set them to the max rated at 80 PSI.With tread separation every time, I would be looking at an inherent problem with that corner of the truck. Bad shock allowing the tire to bounce at a high enough frequency you wouldn't necessarily feel it. I'd be looking for something that causing that tire to bounce/wobble/run out of round, or something along those lines. Maybe even check the wheel temp for a dragging brake, but that seems pretty unlikely as you'd be changing pads more frequently. Maybe get someone to drive beside you on the highway at varying speeds to see if they can spot an issue. Just a thought.

RE: Favorite Brand of 5th Wheel Toyhauler.

Thank you. Once the weather breaks a bit and we can put the pool to bed for the year, we'll be headed somewhere. We may even try to winter over somewhere.

RE: Favorite Brand of 5th Wheel Toyhauler.

The ATC toyhaulers are certainly nice, but if we bought one we wouldn't have the money to actually use it. :) We ended up buying the 2019 Grand Design Momentum 351M that we had looked at. It ticked all the boxes and was at a price we could afford. We were interested in something very nice to live in, and something we could use to haul the Spyder and the Interceptor. We had a few issues: the Happijac bed would go down but not up. After a couple days of troubleshooting, we found a single wire in the 4-wire phone cord they use for controls, broken somewhere. Ran a new cord and all works as it should. The main awning was working intermittently, but turned out to be an iffy connection where the wires come out of the trailer. Fixed and works great. The Norcold 10 cuft fridge worked great on our trial outing. Stayed down below 40° even though the outside temps were 95°-100°. All three AC's worked and kept the interior very cool. The 11 foot garage works great for our minimal toyhauling. The Spyder fits well with room for the Interceptor beside it. So far, we're very happy with it. It pulls very well, and the only downside is the minimal carrying capacity. We will be up against the GVWR with the Spyder and the Interceptor loaded. Looking underneath, it would appear that I could drop one of the 30 gallon gas tanks and gain about 500 lbs. :) They certainly are not going to fall out!! Two 7,000 lb. axles and the weight scales show we're at 13,300 lbs. with the Spyder. The Interceptor weighs about 500 lbs., so we'll be right at the limit. But it does pull nice, so we shall see.

RE: New 4" heavy duty bumper cannot fit Rhino drain hose inside

The fence post idea is interesting. I was just out looking at the RV thinking about where best to mount a PVC tube and I wondered if underneath would make more sense than on the bumper. A tub may work also, i need to figure out with my current tubs in the storage compartment what could fit. I have used my Tetris skills from my youth to figure out an optimum storage bin setup for both storage compartments... :) 5" PVC posts with end caps work very well, and bolted to the frame. PM sent.Yep, 5" post sleeve is what we use, with a section of plastic gutter inside to slide out. Works a treat.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Now if only they could accumulate the Cybertruck itself. LOL

RE: Maintenance Approved For RV

The RV storage lots I'm familiar with in the area specifically do not allow any work to be done on the RV while in the storage area. Liability was the reason given. I do all my maintenance at home.

RE: Jacking up 5th wheel?

Yep, under the U-bolt, to change a tire. Under the frame for suspension work along with under the U-bolt.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I am interested in this thread, but the constant "almost here, almost here, almost here, almost here" just gets so tiresome. Why can't the fan boys just accept that it will be late, and it will get here at some point, and give it a rest? Instead we get daily reports about it's "almost here". I mean it's coming up on 4 years and it's still not here, but it's "almost here". Its all about clicks,views, Electrek and everyone else and YT does the same. Put Tesla headline in and fans n haters will be right on it Lol Now better question is why isnt Ford GM or Rivian selling any EV trucks yet?Shoot, I forgot all about Rivian, they were supposed to be rolling them out. Yeah, what happened to them? Hopefully not another Elio Motors.

RE: Iron air battery -- too heavy for RVs, but interesting

I wonder how similar these batteries are to the Iron-Nickel ones from early last century? Very little similarity.Thank you.

RE: Iron air battery -- too heavy for RVs, but interesting

I wonder how similar these batteries are to the Iron-Nickel ones from early last century? Asking for a friend, are you someone who is nostalgic to the good 'ol days of horse buggy and want the world to go back to those days?:BNo, according to what I've read those were quite the technical breakthrough at the time. Just curious, doncha know. Even the BBC labeled them as 120 years ahead of their time. Maybe you should do a little reading up on them.
