RE: Time for new tires already?

We had a new dodge with good year wranglers' tires. At an rv park in Spokane the same truck as ours towing a fifth came next to us. his truck was full of heavy duty tools as he was going to repair road equipment. fifth was loaded so when he told me the good year wrangler tire were junk and only had 58K miles on them I looked and the tires looked great. lots of thread so maybe not as bad as he wanted them to be. Way overloaded truck. chevman

RE: what size inverter.

We had a 2000 watt inverter in our 2001 Alpenlite with 4 batteries. I would not want less than 2000 watts. chevman

RE: Bedroom door comes open during travel.

We travelled 1500 miles to home from Az in 2020 with my wife in the alpenlite. she thought it was awesome and enjoyed the ride. air hitch and trailer air suspension might be the reason. Not how we wanted to travel but no choice. chevman Always thought that was illegal, but I checked and sure enough it's legal in most states. Nothing is illegal for the USA at this time. for us it was May 2020 and the traffic was very light though Vegas and Boise. Chinese virus was the reason for low traffic. chevman

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

My thinking has always been this. It is your money. buy what you like and no need to run down what others buy because it doesn't help anyone. If your purchase doesn't turn out to be a good thing buy another brand. It is still your money. chevman

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

measure the tank in inches and times the width and the height and length and divide by 231. Gallons will be the answer. chevman

RE: Why do I need a W/D or sway control

I guess if a fella was thinking a lot to hit the trailer brakes if something happens his brain will come alive and MIGHT be ok. I have done this for different scenarios of what could happen and know it helps. be safe chevman

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

On my Dads new to him 5er you had to lift the tanks "UP" and out of the steel ring or try to release the latching system and bend the steel horizontal ring out of the way so you could tip it out instead of lifting. . So I put my "creative genius" ;) to work and cut off the latching system and added a strap that can be tightened. Works GREAT with releasing the strap and tipping the tank out and grabbing the bottom to easily carry it to the truck. I added a wood block to keep from damaging the aluminum door frame at the bottom. The block also keeps the tank base locked in place. https://i.imgur.com/alB82FDl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/wk3rOeNl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/NeOAmgal.jpg I didn't like the factory setup either so because of sitting for 6 months I removed the clamps but installed them for the trip home. chevman

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Leave it connected to the 5th wheel hitch but disconnect the 7 pin cord. I drop jacks as needed to stabilize or level. same for us. chevman

RE: Tire exploded in Florida

We always had plywood under our trailer tires when it is parked. last trailer also expect for the last few days we had it in our driveway. Our chev will be on plywood for the winter also. chevman Honest question, WHY? I read years ago dirt or concrete sucks the moisture from the tires so that is my answer. never had any tires issues . chevman

RE: Poly Glow.

we used poly glow for many years on our alpenlite. Many comments on how great it looked. Because we had a green decal and a brown decal the best trick is to apply the poly with the length of the decal and just one wipe . This will stop the bleeding as you continue. Awesome result for us. chevman

RE: Remember to keep alert while driving..

We had a near death experience coming home on 93 in Nv this trip that is our last and almost was. following a semi that was wandering I decided to not pass because we were going 60 mph, soon the line up behind us was growing with MH trailers and semi's. so keeping a nice distance from the truck ahead and looked behind to see the last truck inline starting to pass. At that time I let up on the throttle to make out distance longer but soon It seemed to not be enough and hit the brakes and the passing semi was going around the truck in front of us. when he hit his brake and his truck went to the right I was on the brakes hoping the folks behind us saw what was happening. Just as the passing semi pulled over the semi that was coming toward us just passed within inches or a foot or two. So I feel I was alert to what was happening. chevman
