RE: How to aim portable Dish Network satellite

I use Dishpointer.com. If you're going to do this very often, a decent meter is a worthwhile investment.

RE: Colorado residents don't want tourists anymore

It's the same in all tourist areas, too many people with too much time and money for the non shop owning locals. Been like that in the Adirondacks for years. NYC folks buying up town and lake property, driving up taxes and apartment rentals so much the locals have to move to somewhere more affordable. I tend to avoid places with active NYC infestations too.

RE: Big Foot vs Level Up

I have factory installed BF on my FW. I'd never be without a leveling system but I'm not sure I'd buy another BF. I've had repeated problems with water contamination in the rear fluid tanks. So far none of the manufacture's suggested fixes have worked.

RE: Colorado residents don't want tourists anymore

During my last trip around CO i thought I picked up some negative vibes. I haven't been back and have no such plans in the foreseeable future. Not really a big deal for me. It's a big country.

RE: recommendations on tire pressure monitors

I have had the Pressure Pro system for 9 years, with 10 sensors on my truck, 5th wheel and boat trailer. Had 1 sensor fail 3 years ago but no other problems and original sensors have the original batteries. I do not full time so sensors come off for the 4 months I am at home. Service has been great when needed. I'm almost full time with PP also with 10 sensors for 9 years. No sensor failures. They improved the seals once but sent an upgrade kit at no charge. They have accurately warned me of slow leaks twice. Most recently last week. No experience with other brands so I can't compare but they work.

RE: Mail

I changed my home address to a box at the UPS Store. They will accept deliveries via any means. Whenever I stop somewhere for awhile I email them to have it all forwarded.

RE: Bigfoot Leveling System Problems

I have an appointment at KRC next month to move my pump/tank assemblies back and inside the frame with longer hoses. I'll post when it's done and everything works (or doesn't).

RE: Bigfoot Leveling System Problems

I just talked to Quadra Tech Support (again). They said they changed their new installs to avoid this problem. The tank and pump are now inside the frame. I have a service appointment coming up NuWa (aka: Kansas RV Center) in Chanute. I'm waiting to hear if they can move mine while I'm there. What do you do if your frame is enclosed and you have tanks on the inside of the frame? Good question. Only the front portion of mine around the tanks is fully enclosed. I'm hoping there is room for the move in the rear but I haven't heard from NuWa yet. I'm talking to Eric at Quadra/Bigfoot Technical Support and Daryl at the Kansas RV Center Service Department.

Not sure about the parts but I would put in 50 amp who knows when you might trade in your current rig I had my 50 amp put in professionally X2 I had a pro install 30a. A couple years later I upgrade the RV and paid him again for 50a.

RE: IR Remote Control Extenders for Hidden Equipment

I tried something like that but things got pretty warm with the doors closed. I added a vent and fan but that was noisy. I ended up with the doors open again.

RE: Bigfoot Leveling System Problems

ljr: Before we travel next month, I will try to wrap some plastic grocery bags or something similar (as suggested earlier) around the rear enclosures. Mike I plan on trying something like that too. I have a first rate sheet metal shop nearby. If I can come up with an idea for a better cover, I'm sure they can make it.

RE: Bigfoot Leveling System Problems

I'm the original poster. I want to say again that the Bigfoot system is in most ways excellent. However, not having the rear jack mechanism enclosures designed to keep water out is a major flaw. The factory representative wasn't able to offer a fix. As I said earlier, on a future fifth wheel, I will look for a different system. Mike I agree completely. Though Quadra has always tried to be helpful when I've asked for advice on repairs, they have never offered any hope at all for a permanent fix.

RE: Bigfoot Leveling System Problems

We just had this problem too (after seeing and responding to this thread). One of our rear levelers would not deploy and the reservoir contained pink fluid. We were able to fix it ourselves with a few parts-a funnel with a long tube and a manual pump used to remove oil from outboard motors. We called Quadra a couple of times for advice because we also needed to purge air from the hydraulic lines since we removed and drained them. It was a easy but messy repair and with the reusable pump and funnel plus the ATF fluid and shop supplies we spent about $75. We had to flush the reservoir about 4 times to get out all the contaminated fluid. It really is helpful if you have a person assisting you. What I have done several times is to remove the reservoir entirely. That makes it much easier to clean out. There are 2 large Allen screws on the inside of the bracket that hold the pump in place. If you remove them it gives you enough play to get the reservoir out and expose the in and out screens. I've always found that the screens needed cleaned too. I do that with alcohol and let it air dry. As you probably know, it's important not to overfill the reservoir or it will overflow when you raise the jack.

RE: 110 PSI Air While on the Road

I carry a small CO2 tank with regulator and hose takes less room than a compressor that takes forever to get to the higher PSI's and I am able to get the 110 psi with no problem, only use it on the road if I need to adjust tire pressure . I made my own set up but take a look at Power Tank brand you will get the idea. Off road guys use these tanks to air their tires back up after rock climbing or running off roadm I've had a Power Tank for several years. Very happy with it. I have the 15# model. In retrospect the 10# would have been more than adequate.

RE: Easiest 5th hitch to connect for 1 smaller woman?

Thanks all, I was more concerned with the actual attaching of the trailer to the hitch, our TT is quite rigorous with the stabilizers and wanted to see if one was easier than another. While the Anderson sounds like the ticket to get the hitch out of the truck I won't be tackling that, it was mainly to be able to attach and detach at the campsite. The suggestion for the wheel step is a great reminder. Thanks all! Hitching a TT with a weight distributing hitch is much more work than a fifth wheel. So that begs the question, can you hook up without a second person? My husband and I had to be a team to line up the TT ball hitch.... Absolutely. I do it all the time. The Trailersaver does help a little with that. I use the airbags to raise the capture plate so it's easier to see.
