RE: New Truck - Is My Math Right?

Get yourself a Sureline tongue scale. about $125.00 on E bay. Take the scale and some blocking along to look at trailers. Set the scale under the hitch and weigh it at the dealer. Then you can add for LP gas battery etc. Keep looking until you find one that will work. I use my scale all year long to check on the weight. We also use it on our race car trailers an for $10.00 and a beer or 2 we weigh other race rigs. Have fun and welcome to the forum.

RE: pressure washers

Now lets talk about actually washing a trailer. Always apply soap with your soap nozzle, low pressure from soap container, from bottom to top, other wise the soap runs down and streaks. next use the soft brush to scrub the dirt. Now switch to you high pressure 60 degree nozzle and rinse from top down. if you want to, now is the time to put some liquid wax mixed with water, about 4 or 5 ounces to a gallon into a separate jug an again apply using the low pressure nozzle and rinse again with the high pressure. Side note. always test first for color change. Filion type siding and some cheaper Gel coats will absorb the soap colors. Never use a red or brown colored soap. Always use the lightest colored soap you can. ONE MORE NOTE. RUN as fast and as far as you can from an AIRSTREAM Alumiumn trailer. Any caustic cleaner will remove the shine.

RE: pressure washers

Ok guys, coming from my 30 years of owning a mobile pressure washing operation let me give you some advice. I have pressure washed thousands of trailers from tin sides to million dollar motorhomes. If your pressure washer comes with a O degree tip, THROW IT AWAY. If you don't know how to use a 15 degree tip or a rotator tip then THROW THOSE AWAY TOO. Always use a 40 or 60 degree tip. Stay away from close contact and keep moving. We use a hot water 3000 psi unit with 2 guns and 5 gals. per minute. Put soap on with low pressure, bottom to top, brush scrub, and rinse top to bottom with hot wax injected into rinse water. Never had an insurance claim in 30 years. As mentioned above dirt or film requires scrubbing to be perfect.

RE: What happened to all the posts

Good posts so far. Have to agree with most of the comments. I have been on here about 8 or 9 years and don't post unless its something I know about. I check on RV.net at least every day during the winter months. Its already here in Wisconsin with 2 snow falls in October. I always enjoyed Dutchman Sports posts and also Old Biscuits as well. Lots of great people on here as well as some real jerks. Just delete the bad ones and move on. I have been camping/Rving for over 50 plus years and still enjoy it. Hope to get a few more in yet. Have fun and enjoy life and don't sweat the small stuff.

RE: help with skirt fender

I blew a tire on my Enterra last year and lost a skirt. took the old pieces and stopped at a few dealers to see what they had in their rummage area. Fourth place I stopped said he had a ton of them upstairs. Came back with the exact size and mounting holes. Slightly different color but can't see both sides at once. Asked how much and when he said $15.00, I got the cash out as quick as I could and got out before he could change his mind. Check some dealers...

RE: Spring from chassis to slide out

If it is the plastic strip type, I just did all 3 on my TT. Get some 1/8th inch thick rubber like from an 0ld mud flap. Cut pieces 2 inch by about 6 inches long. Screw one end to the trailer frame, use existing holes, double up rubber strip and plastic piece, drill some holes thru both pieces and secure with heavy wire ties. Will last forever.

RE: Generator while traveling for travel trailer

The only problem you might run into are low oil alerts on the small generators. As the oil sloshes away from the sensors it will shut them down. Motor home units don't have these. I tried with my bumper mounted champion and this what happened.

RE: Can Not Locate Slide Out Control Box

I have a 2014 Cruiser Enterra. The boxes are behind the panel below the bathroom sink. Don't know if yours are the same, but its a start.
