RE: Empty parks with no open sites.

Don't know about the OP's particular circumstances, but I've been told in FL state parks, and in retail parks, once the reservation is made they cannot book someone else in it. I've seen sites empty for a week at a time, yet the park shows no vacancy. It's very frustrating.

RE: Anybody know what a rainbay/PDI facility is?

The tech at Lazy Days Seffner actually put my Montana in the rain bay after he worked on it.

RE: Got the insurance money but I can't I do this myself?

I encourage you to give it a try. Will probably end up better than done by others.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

If I'm on a level site for an overnight stay, Walmart or CG, I try not to unhook. I select manual, put the front jacks down to ground, then put down the rears, all without attempting to get perfectly level.

RE: E vs. D rated trailer tires

It probably won't ride harder if you adjust your psi downwards, based on your actual weight, and using the tire mfgrs. load table. And, congrats on getting 5 years on Trailer Kings, most fail well before then.

RE: Composting toilet - pros and cons

Don't have one, but my research told me to get the type with the small fan, urine seperator, and manual mixer thingie.

RE: brake shoes

Should be able to get much more than 10,000 miles on drum brakes.

So, I had to do a very messy job today. Without providing details, or determining who the culprits were, all I can say is wipes, flushable wipes, baby wipes (scented and unscented), are the Devil's spawn. That is all.

RE: What's up with CGs?

I just made reservations at three different parks and got a welcome email with no rules. I suspect your particular park has had some difficulties in the past, and they're trying to weed you out before arrival.

RE: Hurricane season is here

Thanks a lot.:) It might reform in the Gulf of Mexico and threaten FL.

Schwintek (Lippert) Slideout Motors

I have one Schwintek slide that's always been slow or hesitant, and has been repaired more than once, and now has yet another bad motor. Does anyone know if the existing 300:1 motors can be replaced by the more powerful 500:1 motors, without a rewire, i.e., plug and play?

RE: Delamination - Are we crazy?

A small area can be repaired, but you need to determine why it delaminated, and you'll need to pull trim/moldings to find out why. If it was from a small leak over time, and the leak is repaired, I'd say go for it.

RE: Bedroom slide bind

I'm struggling to understand the problem, even with the photos. Since the top left and bottom right is binding, the first thing I'd check for is the slide box racked.

RE: Laminate flooring install

The only negative I can think of is the planks weigh more than carpet, so if you're close to your max weight it might be a consideration.

RE: Leaf Spring Failure

Understand your concern. If it were me, I'd get under there, move everything back into place, and tighten up the u-bolts. Double nut them if you can. Use the best hose clamps you can find, in fact, I'd use 2 or 3 at each end. Check it after 25 miles, and then every 50 miles till you get home and get a proper repair.

RE: 2020 F350 6.7 weak start

It's not the first time I've heard of this problem. I suggest you go the warranty route for a good diagnostic. My 350 is much older and its not a daily driver, but if I leave it for more than a week I can tell the batts have been subject to a parasitic draw.

RE: New 16" trailer wheels

Agree most wheels are embossed or stamped with the max psi. If you put a 110psi load range G tire on a wheel thats only rated for 80psi, you have to limit your psi to 80.
