RE: leaf spring broken..trailer legs?

I can't imagine they'd affect the springs negatively. The only issue I see is they're shown supporting the axle inboard of the spring perch/u-bolts, which is contrary to axle mfgrs. requirement not to "jack" on the axles.

RE: Carpet vs laminate or planking

Have someone activate each slide while you observe/measure the carpet to bottom of the slide for adequate clearance. If any drag across the carpet close enough to the subfloor, you'll likely drag across any vinyl or plank flooring.

RE: Blow outs and tires

Stories of RV tire blowouts, mostly on cheap, Chinese tires, are legendary. Best advice I can provide, is get your rig weighed ready for travel, and ensure your tires are rated for the load. Adjust psi up (but never above the tire's maximum) or down, consistent with the load table. If you need a G-rated tire, Sailuns are highly recommended. In the E-rated range, the GY Endurance excels. LT tires are not generally used where ST tires are specified.

RE: fan in circuit-breaker box is cycling every 10 seconds

Yep, they normally run on a longer cycle, like for minutes at a time, or stay on if the electrical load is high. You're probably going to have to contact the panel mfgr. to do a troubleshoot. I'm going to make a WAG that its location below the fridge has something to do with it.

RE: DMV issues

If in FL you can set up your legal domicile in Bushnell using the Escapees services.

I've been disappointed the few times I strayed from Michelin.

RE: Why not jack trailer under the spring plates?

When it's said not to jack under an axle, it really means directly on the tube. How else would one place a jack if not under the spring pack?

RE: Class ‘A’ motor homes FORD chassis.

Fortunately, not an expensive repair.

RE: tire time

Based on your specs, an E or F-rated tire will do, so GY Endurance will work. If you want to upgrade to a G like Sailun or Hercules, and adjust psi downwards per their load range chart, you should be able to stay below your wheel rating.

RE: Hurricane coming

Current track shows it well off the coast of FM (we're in Port Charlotte), but, remember Charlie in 2004 that took a hard right turn and surprised everyone in and around Punta Gorda. Try to determine wind direction and park it head first, jacks down, water filled and hope for the best.

RE: Possible delamination

Not sure this answers the question, but front and rear "caps" are often not laminated walls on many RVs, so it all depends on what he has. Bubbles sometimes appear on laminated sections, and the solution is regluing or replacement.

Yes.

RE: 5th Wheel vs. Gooseneck

Make sure the RV mfgr. allows a gooseneck without voiding your frame warranty.

RE: Dometic Thermostat Issue

While it could be a problem with the main AC control board, I would first suspect the Dometic TS. Appears that many folks have replaced the Dometic with one from Micro-Air, but they're a bit pricey at $300 or so.

RE: Florida Park costs this Winter?

Anywhere from $2300-3000/mo near the coast. They're all booked up, oftentimes by April each year. You can occasionally get reservations if someone cancels, but most places have people on a waiting list.

RE: What is this cat scale telling me?

When hooked up, trailer tongue weight unloads the front axle 100lbs.

RE: residential fridge

I've found my residential fridge stays cool enough during travel days without the converter on.
