RE: travel trailer towing difficulty

Just being aware that your pulling a trailer, you won't notice 7 feet much unless you were uncomfortable with 19 feet. Lol A camping buddy of mine pulls a 30ft trailer with 1-ton Cummins , no WDH.

RE: Thinking of New Aluminum Sided Travel Trailer

Hmmm with all your knowledge of various manufacturers self destructing on the lot....wondering why an opinion was necessary.

RE: Thinking of New Aluminum Sided Travel Trailer

Get fiberglass and maintain the roof....4 trailers zero delamination.

RE: Battery charging with disconnect

Nothing will be harmed with switch on or off hooking up an exterior battery charger.

RE: How to empty fresh water tank without pump?

Yes certainly there's a drain. If you have a winterizing kit installed beside the water pump, make sure the valve is shut off before proceeding with pump maintenance. Left open will suck air and pump runs leaving false impression that pump is shot. And lastly, if your hot water heater was empty for this particular trip, it takes the pump several minutes to fill.

RE: Deep metal "groaning sound" from hitch. Is this normal?

Never met a quiet one. Been using a Reese DC for many years and it displays more of a popping sounds.....little dry lube on the chains eliminated the pop.

RE: Black Water Accident

Well I've got a good one. I was flushing my BWT. I normally stay with it and will close the black water valve for no more than 3 minutes for the tank flush to do it's thing. However, on the 5th flush, I got to "multi-taking." The next thing I know, water is pouring down the sides of my RV. I can't imagine how bad this would have been had it occurred during the 1st flush! This rig is less than a month old. From what I can tell, nothing penetrated into the walls as the crevice seals seen to have done their job. Trying to get my head around this and sorry but had to laugh. You saying you filled the black water tank above capacity and it ran out the roof vent and down the sides of trailer ? Say it isn't so.

RE: Travel CPAPs?

They work just as well as the bigger units.

RE: Shifting An Automatic when towing.

Towing in the mountains of WV, I've often manually shifted my autos but never yanking down to low at speeds.....common sense goes a long ways.

RE: too much truck or not enough trailer?

Maybe just moving for a friend. My thoughts as well. No tounge weight to speak of riding like that and additional weight on trailer axle.

RE: Can AUTO mode damage A/C from frequent shutdowns?

Perhaps I misunderstand but never heard of AC adjusting fan speed on its own. Ours is as follows. High constant Low constant Auto high Auto low.

RE: Trailer length - does that influence spot availability?

We reserve in advance and specifying length, 30 ft in our case and no issues. We mainly stay at state parks and have a drawer full of campgrounds maps with our favorite sites highlighted.

RE: What is your long term Dicor plan?

I agree with " you can't be to cautious " as roof leaks are silent killers. Realize I'm a little overboard but inspect, wash the roof every 2 months and then apply 303 on entire roof and trailer.....yeah I know.

RE: Water heater issues.

You need to shut off the water heater bypass valve as your allowing cold water to mix with hot.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

I dont think ive ever been in a pay campground that allows any dog to be left unattended, inside or out. I personally would never leave my Akita(who truly doesnt bark- its an Akita Thang). Yes, it can limit me, but that is part of the responsibility i voluntarily took on when I acquired him. It is so nice to hear a voice of reason in a sea of delusional dog owners... Delusional is the idea you cannot leave your dog alone/unattended. My dog stays home every work day by himself for 6-8 hours. He is capable of staying alone at the CG as well. Thanks for yet another example of delusional... Delusional can be quickly remedied by owning a well behaved dog. We have several camp hosts that look forward to visiting our dogs.....it's about owner responsibility.

RE: Coachmen Leprechaun fresh water tank

The only other possibility is, Your Toilet water valve dump blade was stuck slightly open and when you were filling the Fresh Water, the water was going into the Black tank thru the toilet. Maybe that is why it took a long time to fill the Fresh tank. Doug Solid theory but the dump valve being stuck slightly open " happens quite often " shouldn't allow the toilet to continue to flush but must admit......I'm stumped if hose was indeed hooked to fresh water.

RE: OK what you got ?

What vehicle are you towing with to have such limitations ? You may be looking for single axle trailers like the Forrest river r-pods.

RE: Older Escalade pulling a 30 foot TT

That's why it's amazing that a person has to acquire a CDL permit with specific training to drive a truck pulling 40ft trailer but yet us RVers can pull anything without any knowledge or training.

RE: A nice change from Social Media

Brings back memories when my Dad brought home our first B&W television back in the late 60's. My Grandma pointed at it and said " that's a one eyed devil ". Lol I limit myself to various forums of interest, here some fishing forums. Never had a FB account, no newspaper and no TV watching.....wife claims that's why I'm so happy. Lol Sorry OP if I drifted off topic.
