RE: Remove logo on Flexsteel captains chairs arm rest.....

I saw a video a while back and the emblem has to get peeled out of the chrome holder, carefully maybe using a hair drier to warm the logo. Once that peels out, there are 2 screws holding the chrome thing to the arm rest.

RE: Stay and Play VS Unified Tow Brake System

I had the Stay & Play installed in my 2015 Cadillac SRX and have had zero issues with it in about 18,000 miles of towing behind 3 different RV's. Easy to turn on and forget about it once you set it up.

RE: Tire Blowout damage to underbelly

I went to the heating /AC company that made duct work and had them cut and bend a piece of metal to fit the entire slide out bottom perfectly to fit under the rubber seal edge. Used sealer to the bottom of the slide out that was torn up by the tire losing a tread. Then installed the metal and screwed it up to the existing wood. Made sure the sealer I used covered all the screws and it was water tight, sealed up and never to have another tire do damage like that. Total costs was under $30 for everything and maybe 1 hour of my time.

RE: Resealing DRV A/C Dometic Penguin II Unit On Roof

As a old auto body shop owner using 3M products always did waht they were designed to do and using the foam sealer tape I used was designed to stop water migation under a truck cap. Having one side of sticky it allowed the tape to seal to the unit and float on the roof top. The sealant dries and is not sticky once set so for the following 6 years of ownership of the DRV trailer and having no further leaks, I guess it worked as I had expected. If at the time the factory seal was available I would have purchased it, but where I was there was no seal. I did the next best thing and got the fix done. No big deal as I have learned a long time ago there may be more than one way to get the job done and have it work.

RE: Mattress

Two of the last rv's we have had experianced the same thing, the mattress would scrunch up to the wall when the slide came in, never saw any issue with it. I would guess it was being scrunched by about 3 maybe 4 inches?

RE: Resealing DRV A/C Dometic Penguin II Unit On Roof

When I pulled the a/c unit up off my DRV trailer I found the seal crushed, not reuseable. yes, just 4 lag bolts holding it to the roof. I went to the local truck shop that sold pick up truck camper covers that sit on the pick up truck box and bought a roll of the foam sealer stuff they used to make myself a new gasket. Also bought a tube of sealer caulk. Removed the old gasket, laid out the new foam and it had a sticky side, put that side on the trailer roof. Where any seam was used the caulk to make sure it was a continuous seal so no water could enter. I think the caulk was a weatherseal gasket stuff that was black sold at the auto parkts store. Also didn't have to un-wire the a/c unit, just used a piece of cardboard as a protection to the rubber roof and laid the a/c unit on its side. Total time was maybe 45 minutes for me to fix the leak we had inside the trailer when it rained.

RE: Tire Patrol TPMS

I like to stay with tried and true, the TST system has a great track record, excellant service after the sale and priced within reason for the system you buy. I have been with using the TST systems for years and when the time comes to replace this unit it will be with another TST.

RE: First Timers

I always recommend poeple buy a used trailer for their first. You wont keep it long before you figure out exactly what you really want and you'll take it in the shorts when you sell that new traielr. So true, we bought our first used trailer 24 ft that we kept a total of 3 short trips and figured it was not fitting us very well. Listed it for sale and bought a new one that was the floor plan we should have bought first. Until you actually stay in it for a few times you really don't know. We made out well by buying the used one and getting more for it than we paid when we sold.

RE: air ride pin box

When I had a International MDT pulling a Mobile Suites 17,000 lb trailer I ran a Trailer Saver Hitch and loved it, made a huge difference in ride for the trailer and the truck. I do believe the hitch will bolt right up for you.

RE: Longhorn Ranch RV Resort

I agree with others as we spent a week in Gardner right outside the gate and still added almost 1,000 miles driving all throughout the park every day. Adding the 1.5 hour drive everyday one way to just get to the park is not using your time wisely. Spend the few extra bucks and enjoy the experiance in the park. Plus, if your parked close to the entrance you could run back to the rv for a lunch or a nap and then head back in.

RE: Another Tesla problem

In the report you posted "Three weeks after the crash, the owner got a letter from Tesla saying that the accelerator was depressed to 48% just before the crash and 98% at the time of impact. The owner still believes the car accelerated by itself, the complaint stated." They can tell a lot of things going on when the vehicle is operating and I have to think the investigation should not be that hard to do. Call up the vehicles report and show the investgators.Did it fail or did it do what the driver asked it to do?

RE: More tire pressure monitor discussion.

I buy car,trailer and motorhome insurance to help should I have a loss. I have the TST system on the motorhome and the towed Cadillac so I don't have a claim, or maybe not have a claim.For the cost of the system, it is half of the cost of any deductible I may have. So far it has alerted me twice and saved me the costs of what damage I might have occured had I not stopped when we did. I look at it as cheap insurance.

RE: Models with Adaptive Cruise Control

I've never driven a vehicle with this feature. It sounds terrible. If I'm set at 70 and I come up on a vehicle doing 67 then I slow to 67? If he slows to 65 now I'm doing 65? That sounds terrible. Why wouldn't I pass the slower vehicle and be on my way? Is that not how it works? What do you like about this feature? You should drive one and give it a try, I LOVE it. You can't always just move over and the system will automaticly slow down and then speed up again when the road is clear.

RE: Access to overhead bunk

Clear the aisles, then starting at the rear of the coach, run forward as fast as possible towards the couch bed, then jump on it and using it as a springboard, vault into the cabover bunk. Try to "stick" your landing for the judges. Good luck. Man I'd love to see that!!

RE: Bigger stabilizer bar improvement in handling?

I added the Helwig rear track bar and it made a HUGE difference in stabilized travel when towing my car. Before it was a handful trying to keep the thing going straight down the road. Now like it is on rails. Well worth the investment.

RE: CENTRAMATIC Wheel Balancers

I had a terrible time with the front tires on my International tow vehicle with a shake. After many rebalances and using either weights or powder I finally spent the money for the Centramatic system. Night and day difference in smoothness. They sold me on the way they operate and I would buy them again when the need came up.

RE: RV lots in Phoenix area??

I don't think I have found anywhere like Yuma with lots that can have the varitiy of housing placed on it like that anywhere in Az. There are lots for sale in Casa Grande at Sunscape rv resort, but that is a resort and not a neighborhood like Yuma. There are places in Texas and Florida that are somewhat like Yuma for lots in neighborhoods we saw when traveling but had no need to inquire on pricing.
