I did it and it was a half day with good tools. Pretty easy and a good time to check and adjust wheel bearings and brakes and rotate tires. You’ll be surprised how quiet the suspension is when pulling into a campground too.

RE: Pushing a TT into position from the rear bumper...?

Dealers use forklifts all the time to move trailers

RE: Need new tires

I finally, after two blowouts, went to G rated tires on my 5th wheel and have been pleased! I highly recommend upgrading to the higher load range.

RE: Towing Travel Trailer without WDH from Dealer

If it starts to sway slowly apply the brake controller and it should bring it back in line and slow everything down.

RE: Load Range D tire confusion

Tire load size. Personally I would recommend moving up to a "E" rated tire if you have the room with your trailer. I prefer to have extra pay load with my tires even it is more than my trailer needs. I used to run "E" rated tires on my 5th wheel but switched to "G" rated. They felt more stable travling down the road and lasted longer. I replace my tires every 5 yrs. regardless how they look or how much tread is left. Having a blow out with your trailer can be dangerious and do some costly damage to your trailer from my own experience. Best advice you’ll get! Go up a load range. I also went up to a Grated tire for my 5th wheel trailer.

RE: Blocked Caller Question

I use Verizon's call filter app. $2.99 a month. In the call/text screening universe, it leaves much to be desired but nonetheless has cut down the garbage quite a bit. It really falls flat on number spoof telemarketers, but the app does allow you to block the number and give a reason why you're blocking it. Apparently Verizon builds a database of numbers linked to spoofs, spam, and other undesirable phone activity. That’s free now. No need to pay for Verizon customers.

RE: Tire Replacement Question

Instead of buying by name look at load ranges and go up a rating or two.

RE: 5th wheel tire review

Notice how many comments mention “load”. Upgrade to a higher load range tires and you’ll notice a big difference. I have G rated tires on my 5th wheel and have had great luck with them.

RE: Biting Insects

By far the best insect repellent is Ultrathon from Amazon. Until I found that my wife wanted to leave Texas

RE: Long distance purchase

If you think you’ll get better service because you bought there you might want to search this and other forums. 95% of RV’rs found they got crappy service no matter where they bought. And I’m speaking from experience. Better to get the best deal you can. I drove 2,000 miles to save several thousand dollars. A good mobile RV repair guy is worth it.

RE: Outdoor speakers leaks, 2nd toy hauler same problem

Should’ve had marine speakers all along for any outdoor speakers. Replace and use plumbers putty behind for the seating. Easy peasy.

RE: Removable 5th wheel hitch?

My BW came off but left the rails. I just used some 2x4”s then a 4’ plywood and put my camper on top. Never had any problems.

RE: Newer 5ers, Slider Hitch Required For Short Beds?

It depends on your truck and trailer. I had a short bed and did fine with my 5th wheel but had to be very careful when turning. I never had a problem but also didn’t turn a few times because I knew I’d have a problem.

RE: Denial on claim - need someone from GS to contact me

Of all th horror stories we read on RV forums I’m surprised people are still wasting their money on extended warranties. Good luck

RE: BedRug with hitch

I cut out around the rails and you really need to Velcro it down so the wind doesn’t make it flap and it could tear. I love my bed rug though.

RE: Backup cam - not sure what to do with it

I use one of those on my 36’ fifth wheel trailer with a few inexpensive add ones. Pm me if you want the list and include your email. I have a pic of all the items needed I can send you.

RE: Good Sam annual inspection

When I was young and our first TT the salesman conned us into a “extended warranty “ and we had to let the dealer do an annual inspection. The came back and said there’s a few spots on the roof needing caulking (8 months after purchase) and wanted $300! Two months later I got refunded the “warranty” and have been doing my own inspections and maintenance. Those are rip-offs.

RE: Extended Service Plan while under warranty

Those are great questions that probably should have been asked before deciding. Hopefully you’ll come back later to update everyone who may be thinking of buying a service plan for their RV.
