RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

Everyone rushing out to fill tanks as the OP advises is more likely to impact pricing than the loss of production. Same thing happens in every adverse situation / natural disaster. Exactly!

Sounds like your master cylinder might be failing.

RE: Safe to tow ? Mercedes GLS with a 4500 lb travel trailer

The max numbers you listed are just that....the Maximum payload and tow rating. That is, properly equipped with bare bones options. You have to look at the particular vehicle to see what those numbers will be. Seems like an awful lot of trailer for an SUV.

RE: Surge power protector- hard wire or portable?

If you are a DIYer check out the warranty requirements for the hard wired version I believe there state you need to have it installed by a tech. I don’t think this is the case anymore. Their website states improper installation would void the warrantee, and they strongly recommend having it professionally, but it is not a requirement. I don’t have an EMS....yet. It is on my list, and like the op, I’m trying to decide between the hardwired and portable unit. The portable is a tad more expensive and there is always the potential for theft, even if locked. The hardwired needs a place for it to be installed, requires a bit of work to do so (not afraid of a little work), and from what I hear - can’t confirm - they can be a little noisy. On the other hand, I’ll never forget to use it, and theft would be a non-issue.

RE: Henry Ford Museum

Stopped at the Henry Ford a couple of years ago on my way home during a business trip. The Henry Ford is amazing! I spent 3 hours just in the museum and didn't see it all. That is just me, no spouse or family to talk about what we’re looking at. I would give it two days to see Henry Ford and Greenfield Village and another day to see other things in the area. The parking lot is huge. You’ll have no problems parking your truck or driving in the area. Enjoy!

RE: Suggestions on single axle trailer and SUV tow vehicle

Our first tt was a Starcraft AR-One. Model 17RD, single axle. We had it for 6 years and never had a single issue with it, and we put a LOT of mileage on it. It is a bare bones camper, but had a ton of storage. When I say bare bones, I’m talking about manual awning, a water heater I had to light the pilot on, etc. The only down side was a east-west bed that was hard to make and only the dinette to sit at. Holding tanks were a bit small, but was no big deal. We really liked it a lot and hated to get rid of it. We towed it with a 6 cylinder GMC Envoy. Lock out 4th gear, and it went up anything. You would definitely be good with a Yukon/Suburban/Expedition. Don’t fear the single axle, there are tons of them out there.

RE: Need help with a Exterior problem

That may be a "new' trailer but it is also a damaged trailer. I think that there is something wrong to have that many cracks in the sides. Maybe the frame is screwed up and putting tension on the side panels. I personally would not buy it. I agree with this! This trailer is new??

RE: Tire Rotation Not Needed?

And as a tire wears down the tread depth doesn't wear as fast.:h Not sure what you mean by this. Tread depth is how you measure tread wear, no? As an aside, if you were buying only two tires, you'd always put them in the rear. However, at only a 1/32" difference, I'd insist on rotsting them. I mean for tires to last longer. The intervals between rotations should become longer as the tire looses tread depth. Because the tire doesn't not loose depth as fast as it did when new. Ah, gotcha! Thanks, I was certainly misreading what you posted.
