RE: Leaf Spring Failure - Replace the Others?

I never had a failure but my springs did start to sag very badly. I replaced them all from 3000 lb. to 3500 lb. springs and the trailer sat and rode better then it ever did. I would replace them all with higher rate and better quality. just my 2 cents. Good luck

RE: Tire age?

Get rid of those as soon as you can afford it. I never buy China made tires. I even had bad lucky with my last set of tires that were Michelins that had defective sidewalls that now gave me a bad taste in my mouth for Michelins that I always loved, no more. I will now go with Goodyear Defenders that I know several people had good luck with them.

RE: Dicor sealant on my fifth wheel

Thanks Doug, I will give that a try. I tried with a short screw and taping the end but did not think about a longer screw. Thanks again. Jeff

Dicor sealant on my fifth wheel

I know this may sound like a dumb question but does anyone know of a way to save a open tube of dicor sealant without the plastic tube harding up. I only need a patial amount and don't want to waste another tube. I tried sealing it like you do with the proflex silicon but it did not work, the plastic tube still got hard. At the price of these now it is hard to throw away a half full tube. Thanks.

RE: Low power?

I ran my 30 amp plug from my panel to where my trailer is parked.I used 10/2 wire, had to run it through the attic. I get 118/119 volts with no load but when ac runs it drops to about 110 volts.I should have ran 8/2 even 6/2 due to the 50 ft.run and the heat in the attic during the summer. Your voltage drops seems normal especially with extension cords.

RE: Possible delamination

I had a delam spot on my fiver about 2 years after I bought it. It was a 12 inch oval on pass side wall just after the overhang. They cut it out and patched it. Looked good until 3 years ago and it cracked where the patch was done.

RE: Mini Split A.C. in their fiver

Wogg, yes please post some pictures. The only problem I have is my fiver has 3 rooms, a small rear room, main living then the front bedroom. Not sure how good cool air flow would work getting to all areas.

RE: Smaller Propane Tanks

I ditched the big tanks years ago when they were going out of date. I swap the smaller ones out when they are getting close to expiration date and get ones with a better date. Never had a problem. I also carry a few extras in the truck bed.

RE: Upgrade to 5th wheel

I always go with the gvw and not the built weight. You will slowly start adding more things when you start using it and will find out you will start getting close to your gvw before you know it. Just like tires always fill to the max air, I go by the GVW. Just my 2 cents. That is how I do it. Good luck on your new fiver.

RE: RV wind deflectors do they work we will see

Here is a side view that shows how far away from the trailer they are. I don't think it is too effective though. I think it needs to be closer.I think it would be closer on a short bed truck. https://i.imgur.com/qVz6Ufal.jpg

RE: Repair Price

I had a 95 Chevy Astro van that the compressor failed. I did the work myself except for the evac. It cost 1100.00 back in 2006 so that price is not too far out of range for 2022. Good luck.

RE: How many of you own an EV?

None for me thanks, The most battery operated things for me are my Ryobi tools. I have a 2007 Sonata with 303,000 miles and is still going strong, My 2017 Sonata has 113,000 and hope to get the milage of the 2007 one, my 2002 Ford F-350 dually is turning 38,000 so I don't think I will be worried about having to get a high priced ev. I will suffer with the gas vehicles.

RE: Stops Catalytic Converter thefts! (inexpensive method)

My brother moved just recently to Fallon Nevada. Small little town 6 hours north of Las Vegas. While his truck and trailer were in a RV storage lot loaded and ready to go away for the week, when they arrived to leave he started up the truck and the cat was missing. they were unable to go. These thieves are everywhere.

Mini Split A.C. in their fiver

I was wondering if anyone has put a mini split a.c. in their fiver or trailer and if so how do they like it and how does it work especially if you have 2 rooms like a fifth wheel. I have seen a lot of you tube videos but never heard first hand from anyone. Just curious.

RE: RV wind deflectors do they work we will see

I have one,though it looks good but it really does not save me any fuel. it is too far away from the trailer to do any good, but it does help with the bugs.https://i.imgur.com/cG7axBFl.jpg

RE: Your Rig

Here is my old goat. 2002 Ford F-350 Dually V-10 and 2005 Keystone Challenger 34TBH. They are both old but still going. Truck is not a race horse but it gets us there. She only has 38,000 miles on her so she still has some life left in her. https://i.imgur.com/PCjQMx1l.jpg

RE: Pleated Blind Peg

Same as way2roll said. Use toothpicks with wood glue and when dry screw back into it.

RE: ALWAYS something!

Unfortunately things are not made to last anymore. I still have a 2005 tv in my trailer that is 26 inch and is heavier then **** but still works and my manual awning is still working but this year needs a replacement fabric,anything I bought in the last 5-6 years gives me trouble one way or another. My truck is a 2002 and has 38000 miles on it and the only problem I had was a bad fuel pump and that is why I will keep it until it won't go anymore.

RE: Does Anybody??

I just looked it up and they say about 50-125 watts depending on the size of the printer.
