RE: Travel Trailer Rubber Roof Blew Off

Well, at least others will be aware of Heartland problems. I've seen a number of trailers cruising down the interstate with a big roof bubble going on at the front of the trailer. Pretty sure it settles down when they stop driving. Not necessarily just a Heartland problem. I've seen that too. It certainly gets your attention as a fellow RVer. Who knows. Mine probably does that too lol YUP.... seen that MANY times..... Over on the Redwood forum there was a guy who lost his roof the same way a few years back... Since that time, I took a room of 6" eternobond and ran a strip from side to side across the front cap seam... That seams to be the weak point and it could allow enough air in to raise the rubber.. I ASSUME it worked, can't dee it while driving, and nobody ever waved me down , while pointing at the roof

RE: Thoughts on this Truck

One thing I noticed, the 2 trucks I like are 156" (6.75' bed). Is that a problem towing a FW or do I need to look for an 8' bed? I know they make slider hitches and a lot of the newer FW's have short bed friendly noses. I have towed ALL of my fifth wheels with my prior 156:" WB trucks with zero issues.. Of course I had an automatic slider to assist.. this most recent truck of mine is a long bad... I will NOT go back to a short bed ! ! the difference in ride quality is night and day.. Not to mention the ability to load more cargo in the bed and not in the RV.. and standard 48 gallons of diesel.... and not using a slider and being able to hook or un hook at any angle..

RE: Thoughts on this Truck

The "15" has less miles in a longer period... The "16" has a 4" lift that would concern me if they were Off Roading, or just a lifted grocery getter... If I were looking, and I wanted a Ford F-350, and had those 2 to choose from, it would be a hard decision... I am not a fan of blue exterior, OR that color interior... I like the silver exterior and black interior better, but those 100k miles is a bit high for a "16".. Not to mention the 4" lift..Im getting too old to drive any more lifted trucks Your best option is to take a ride, kick the tires, drive them ALL, and decide at that point..

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

for us.. 500-600 is a normal day.. EXCEPT when we leave for home from FL... we stretch the vaca as long as we can and leave as late as we can.. That 1st day's drive home is usually about 800 miles.. We go from Disney to Doswell VA the first day.. It will ALL DEPEND on your tolerance to driving and dealing with traffic.

RE: sway

Nothing back from the OP ? I will say this, My daughter and future Son In Law have a set up almost identical except their stock tires are GY and sticker says air to 35#.. They are at the upper end of their capacity and I told them when towing, go to max listed on sidewall, which is 51#.. Their plan WAS to get married in June, ( didnt happen, thanks COVID ) move into their house ( that did happen ) and buy a new truck in the fall. They have little sway, The sway they have I believe is from the fact that it is a rear kitchen with a good bit of the weight BEHIND the TT axles.

RE: A very good reason Not to scrimp on surge protectors.

I have been using the Progressive Industries EMS 50..Our first trip this year we kept being shut down due to low voltage .. I now use a Hughes Autoformer 50 Amp Voltage Booster with Surge Protection which will boost low volatage up 10% I may give my Progressive industries EMS 50 to my daughter as she just got her first RV

RE: harbor F replacement jack also recalled

Like stated earlier.. I only buy small tools, hand tools, gloves, tarps, ratchet straps.. ect from HF... Nothing that would/could fail and cause harm or worse. They are great for Super Coupons

RE: Thoughts on this Truck

I am glad you decided to pass om that truck as its gone now... I traded my "15" Lariat-350-6.7 set up to tow with 58k on the clock and they had it listed for $44k ( gave me $41K ) .. They got the truck and were forced to close due to the pandemic 3 days later... once they reopened it was gone within 1 week.

RE: Nicest?? CG in or near Bar Harbor

FTG, We stayed at (Tall or Twin Pines) which is about 16 miles from BH and just south off Ellsworth. Yes lots of seasonals, BUT also lots of sites for non seasonal . IMO, much better than the 2 KOA's we drove thru. Big rig friendly. If we went back, that's where we'd stay again. AC Thanks, I didn't see that one,I saw the 2 KOA's and Timberland Acres.. I will check that one out You are indeed correct, it was Timbeland Acres we stayed at. Dang CRS at 4am! LOL I hear ya.... :).. especially after a week at the beach ! my b&tt is dragging today

RE: Adding 2nd a/c with in-command system

Correct, a "Gateway " and a " Controller" are needed from what the folks at ASA Electronics ( they make it ) .. You then reconfigure the "Floorplan" in the incommand settings

RE: Honda 2200i or Honda 2200i Companion?

Why would you not get the 2200 Companion first? That way you can plug in to your 30amp plug from generator to trailer. without 30 to 20 dog bone. C.B. X2 for sure !

RE: Adding external LED's and awning LED's

If you want to add the LED on your awning roller, it will be very hard if your NOT wired for them already ....I am sure there are some on here that may have figured a way to RIG the wiring to work.. I added a strip under the frame of my last fiver and it worked great ! This is exactly my concern. How the awning rolls up without destroying wiring. Anyone know how they do it from factory? I really dont mind the way I have it with the lights on the side of the camper with regards to lighting the site, but I would say 10-20 bugs fly in every time the door opens. And with 3 kids the total bug count in the camper on a summer evening becomes something like 9 figures ;-) For those that said you added them under your camper, did you just use the sticky tape they came with or some other way to fasten them? I'd hate for them to come off while traveling and tangle in the wheels. Thanks! My lights are recessed in a track in the awning.. the wires drop into a 1/4" sized hole in the roller tube, then travel up the inside of the awning rail.. At the top of the rail, they enter into a hole in the side of the camper..

RE: Dish TV Pay-As-You-Go RV Plan

The packages are 30 days. I have been using the plan for several years now with good luck.. What is nice is that there are NO activation fee's . Pay the bill , turn on the system,. scan, watch, repeat if needed.. I pay my last bill in September and do not pay again till the following April with no penalties...

RE: UPDATED - Ran over Gator

Are they 'retreads' (existing tire regrooved) or 'recaps' (layer of rubber bonded onto old tire without remaining tread)? They ( Gators ) would be Re Caps....

RE: Water pressure gauge

I have my Watts 263 adjustable set to 55.. not a problem.. Like stated.. the lines can handle much more, it's the connections that will fail.
