RE: Water damage issues

It's very difficult to assess the extent of any water intrusion without pulling off wall panels and flooring. You have to make your own judgment call about how much time and expense you will be able to put into correctly fixing the problems you discover. If you have the skills and time, you might be able to salvage a unit that some people would run away from.

RE: wheel chocks

I had also had little space for x-chocks, too. I went with the Equalizer One-Step. They have a lot of adjustability allowing for some tight fits, and they're easier to use than x-chocks.

RE: Pullrite Super 5th Hitch and Lube Plate

Strange to get different answers. The PR setup uses a capture plate on your pinbox........... And this is why I say follow your manual for your hitch. Not all pullrites are sliding hitches, and the OP clearly states in his first post his is not. Doh, schlep is correct. I didn't closely read the OP'S qualifying language about his hitch not being the sliding type. Can I ever be forgiven?

RE: Suggestions on Selling Trailer

When you take photos to add to your listing, remove everything from the horizontal surfaces to present a neat and uncluttered look.

RE: Pullrite Super 5th Hitch and Lube Plate

Strange to get different answers. The PR setup uses a capture plate on your pinbox that locks the box to the pivot mechanism on the hitch. There is no movement there requiring a lube plate since the pivot is at the PR hitch assembly. That pivot assembly requires a variety of lubes, different depending on your PR type and model year.

RE: rear axle

You're better off than those with 3.73 and higher axles. My F150 was a 5.4 with a 3.73 and I hauled an 8,400lb FW.

RE: wondering if 2 (smaller) gray tanks better than one big one

Other than having more plumbing connections and a third valve to go bad, I see no potential problem (s).

RE: Do you have trouble with slides

There are those having no problems, those having problems right now and those waiting for a problem to occur. Had a problem with my one slide Bounder, problem with one of my three current slides, and hopefully no problems with the six slide FW we have on order, ha ha.

RE: Who Daily Drivers their diesel TV?

Yes, but I'm retired and don't have to go to work five days a week. I do miss my F150 that was so sedan like. I find myself driving the Avalon most of the time unless I'm hauling a load.

Not normal.

RE: Hook up a hose or fill fresh water tank in cold weather ?

Some people are just plain ignorant or can't be told anything. They have offspring and vote, too.

RE: Putting out slide on incline?

No matter what the manual states, I wouldn't recommend opening the slide because of your extreme angle.

RE: Who's Towing a 5th with a half ton?

A few years, 2004 F150 Supercrew, 5.4, 3.73, tow package. 8,400lb FW.

RE: 2004 Ford pickup 5.4 liter motor tick noise

My 2004 5.4 developed the cam phaser tick while under warranty, at about 35,000 miles. Fixed and sold at 145,000 miles; no further ticking.

RE: Pulled over and harassed in texas

Well, I suppose the theory on the stethoscope could be that tanks (previously unused for human waste), could be used to smuggle people. But, I have to agree with the OP about what he perceives as harrassment. The whole stop appears to be a fishing trip. I know in the future I am going to turn on my phone video before the officer interaction begins.

RE: route 295 around richmond versus 95

No problem driving the car. TV and FW, not so good. Lots of teeth jarring events in the right lane, fewer in center and left hand lane, but can't drive there all the time.

RE: Huge Electricity Bill - Help

If their bill was below $200/mo and the only thing that changed was you hooking up, it's probably the space heater and heat tape. Do you have an electric/propane water heater? If it's on electric and you're doing laundry, that might also pull a lot of power. Your furnace also uses a lot of power even though it's only 12v

RE: Hitch install slide no slide

It depends. Dealer told me he never opines because he always guesses wrong. I believe him. A few people told me my shortbed would be okay without a slider because of the newer FW cutouts; NOT! I can get to maybe 85 degrees but have to slide to get to 90.

RE: Loose chairs

We have two swivel rocker recliners that came with cheap tieddowns that I removed. I just turn them to face each other and push the fronts together; no issues.
