RE: Baseball strike zone...

Control pitchers like Greg Maddox had a slightly wider strike zone simply because the catcher would setup slightly outside and he'd deliver it there with incredible consistency.....STRIKE.

RE: Baseball strike zone...

That's why big hitters like Aaron Judge can't hit for average and little hitters like Altuve crush the ball.....small strike zone vs big strike zone.

RE: Awning Repair Tips

Shouldn't it be straight forward being that you have to remove the bent rail ? I've replaced awning parts in the past and a relaxed position seemed best.

RE: Camco Trailer Aid did not aid at all

RE: Nightmare

That estimate is no doubt for entire roof replacement. Several years ago we had a large limb destroy the roof of our trailer.....$11K to replace.

RE: Hot brakes on new tow vehicle

I carry a temp gun in the truck so identifying the culprit is a trigger pull away. But agree with above post as new brakes need break in.

RE: Hitch height

I don't trust dealers for WDH setup but I do trust a tape measure and scales. I really can't offer valid advice for your setup because it may well very different than my hitch setup. When I setup my Reese DC the top of hitch ball was 1" higher than top of trailer coupler, level. Dropped trailer on hitch whiched dropped rear 2" and raised front 1". Adjusted trunnion bars where rear of truck came up 1" and front of truck went back down 1/2" and trailer is only 1" nose down when all was said and done. So 2 things jump out with what you describe in post. (1) Hitch ball 3 1/2" below trailer coupler while both sit level unhook, hmmmmm. (2) 3 1/2" of nose down is more than I would want. Hope Anderson responds with the answers your looking for.

RE: Equal-i-zer vs Dual Cam

I disagree with the theory. When pulling a trailer, especially highway, truck and trailer spends most of the time oriented in a straight position where antisway can most benefit. On more rural roads, slower roads, heading to a campground/state park, sway isn't an issue. Another words, antisway is much more beneficial at speed and where trucks are passing or being passed What exactly do you disagree with? Speed wasn't even brought up. I still don't understand what you disagree with. Sway forces were brought up and they're more prominent in a straight line with the DC.....straight line would indicate roads with higher speed limits. Sway control is a non issue at slower speeds on winding roads at slower speeds in my experience. Ok let's dumb it down. Sway issues, dog wagging the tail, loss of control of trailer is ONLY done at speed where other large vehicles have influence over control......speed is a major player. If we we were all on backroads then all WDH companies would never exist, easy enough?I still don't get your point. One would never get a road hazard caused flat if one stayed parked all the time either. Obviously the goal is to be able to travel while avoiding sway. A glance at any map shows that roads are anything but straight. So curves MUST be negotiated. The original friction sway control bars all come with a warning: "Disconnect in rain or slippery conditions." This because in some situations the control can prevent the negotiation of a turn. with that system, disabling the sway control leaves the WD function intact. One cannot seperate the sway control from the WD functions with any of the integtreted sway control hitches... Yet they are able to negotiate turns without problems in slippery conditions....This gives a clue as to just how much anti sway forces are present. I can't imagine why anyone would unhook a WDH in rain, not heard that before. The hitch itself does more than mitigate sway,setup properly it returns weight to front axle which in my mind, would be safer in Slick road conditions. My Reese loses everything without trunnion bars.

RE: Lock em up... a long story

Bizarre story, thanks for sharing. Not sure how thieves have a chance today with most homeowners and businesses sporting security cameras. I would suggest to your neighbor to also join the masses and install cameras. Security cameras don't prevent crime - they just hopefully provide proof to prosecute the criminals after the crime. My cameras have sirens that can be enabled while sleeping or away.....that would be discouraging to a thief. Imo

RE: Equal-i-zer vs Dual Cam

I've only used (1) WDH in 27 years of trailer ownership and it's been the Reese DC. Did snap a trunnion bar once making a sharp turn while truck was on a hump. Never had a trunnion bar slip out. My BIL likes his Anderson.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Wife (56) and I (60) have both gotten a 1st round of Pfizer. I had zero side effects, the wife had a bout with rapid heart beat and hot flashes but for minimal duration. Side note: Walked in hospital UNREGISTERED and had a shot inside of 5 minutes.

RE: While using my black tank flush

From the way I understand your post is that by connection to the black tank flush it immediately started filling fresh water tank which tells me it's labeled wrong. Cross contamination from black tank to fresh water tank would be a disastrous plumbing error and highly unlikely given it's simplicity.

RE: Forest River Foam Core floor soft spots

The wife and I were at a campground where a woman actually went through the foam floor of RV and had to be rescued. We witnessed the rescue and need to mention.....she was well nourished.
