RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring System for FW

The TST system has been on every RV I have owned since 2004, upgraded a few times now with the color monitor. They supply the booster with a purchase and it will greatly enhance the signal to the receiver. Your 125 psi tires will go well over that when they get hot, so if you only buy a system that has a high reading of 125 psi your going to be very upset with the loud alarm going off all the time. I have owned both senders, the ones that flow through and the caps, prefer the cap style for ease of use and they sit closer to the wheel. Best of luck with whatever system you choose.

RE: Scotty at the DMV doesn't know!

WA8YXM was right on and quick too. Wonder why the guy who works there was unable to find that information.

RE: Insane first RV trip plan?

Well that is a lot of driving in a short time frame. I see about 2,000 miles each way, and if you drive every day that is about 140 miles per day. We are finding a difficut time to not have planned months ahead to get spots for the rv. Rv parks are busy and fill up quickly during the traveling season.

RE: Hensley Arrow tips

We loved our Hensley, and yes was a little bit of work to learn all the tiny things i could do to make it easier. We towed a 26 ft trailer behind my Dodge Durango, really hated how the old hitch made us feel squirley. I found by backing up to get the stinger just kind of setting in the Hensley, not locked down, and the truck backed up to almost touching the stinger, I could move the stinger out to the hitch opening to ensure i was level and able to just continue backing up. The stinger would not bind and slide right in. After a while i no longer needed the little trick of sliding that thing in or out to mate up. We would never own another travel trailer with out either a ProPride or Hensley. Good luck on your new wonderful hitch.

RE: Maaco

You would think anyone doing the same job over and over would become pretty good, and in some cases that is true with Macco. You have to somewhat lower your standards with their quality of workmanship. Dry spray areas, runs or sags and too heavy or maybe too light of paint has to be expected and in many cases just lived with when you leave. Will your car look better, probably, will it look like it was new, probaby not. But for the amount they charge, you are getting the job that money will buy, not much more. I stopped into the quality local shop near me and asked about repainting one of my cars, its a convertible and the price was starting at 10 grand.

RE: Corpus Christi / Rockport RV Parks

Magistic Oaks was really nice for us when we spent a month there, no cable TV but otherwise we enjoyed it. Did find another park a few miles away, a new place we probably would give a try called Reel Chill RV resort. Have a look on RV Park Reviews to see what others have said. Enjoy your trip.

RE: Flushing water heater

I made my own tube flusher when I had a water tank that needed to be drained. Garden hose pressure will work fine and allow that white calcium to wash out. You will be surprised on the amount you have laying in there.

RE: Need tire inflation by weight for Sunitomo 719 tire

Looks to me you can use the Goodyear tire pressure chart that shows your size tire up to 120 psi, it breaks it down to single or dual. Knowing the weights your coach weighs will allow you to set the correct tire pressues. Tire pressure guide

RE: 2023 camping season

Nope, going to travel when and where we want without regard to the economy. Problem will be getting reservations, parks are getting full already for our travels it seems.

RE: Best big rig campgrounds around east side of yellowstone

We stayed at Yellowstone RV park in Gardiner with our 36 ft 5 wheel and a medium duty truck and it was right above the river giving fantastic views of the boaters floating down. It was about a couple miles from the entrance to the park and easy to get in and out. The only drawback was the entrance to the park is a fairly steep decent down a dirt road, everyone does it but a bit intimidating when first being seen. You will go down and back up in whatever rig your in. Not a resort, but worked well for the week we were there.

RE: Heated Floors

I can say this is the first RV we have owned with heated floors and I can't see us ever owning another rig without them. They do take the chill out of the interior and have actually made the coach too warm without any other heat source. We only stay in rv parks plugged in so for us that is perfect. Otherwise having to run the generator to power the floors would not be something we would do.

RE: Passport America Caravans

So sorry your being treated this way. I would have copied your post and listed it on every single rv web site, You Tube or anywhere you can to let others know of his failure to follow his own rules. We are talking now of maybe finding a caravan group for next years travels, and this one is OFF the list!!

RE: leaf spring broken..trailer legs?

From watching the videos the only way I can see it damaging the springs is if the legs unit is not installed correctly, or placed off center on a spring. Otherwise it appears to do what it was intended to do without damaging anything.

RE: Newbie - 36ft vs 41ft fifth wheel

We started out full time travel in a 38.5 5ft wheel, then moved to a 36 ft. Zero difference in the actual towing down the roads, a slight change in some turning. Seems the rv parks sites that would fit a 38.5 and a 36 were about the same. Interior space changed a lot, you would think a bit over 2 feet would not make a difference, but it does. Find the trailer that will fit your lifestyle and you will make it work.

RE: Valve stem extension

Any truck tire shop can install the extended steel or brass one piece valve stem to extend out between the opening in the outer wheel. No need for anything else, easy to access and add a tire monitor or just use your tire pressure gage, simple and not very expensive.

RE: JT's Strong Arm Travel Trailer Stabilizer Kit

I helped install 2 different set ups on friends rigs, one trailer and one 5th wheel. In the trailer we went to the steel shop and bought square tubing cut to the width of the trailer and mounted them with nuts and bolts into the existing frame work to fit the strong arms in the proper location to work. You want something ridgid to mount to. Yes, once installed the wiggle was gone and felt like the trailers were bolted to the ground. Well worth the money and effort to install.

RE: Low pressure at RV shower head. What is this?

It is a water restrictor, cuts the water flow. Will work without it in place but you will have more water flowing. If you keep the grey water drain open won't matter.

RE: Adding fan behind refrigerator...worthwhile??

When we full timed in a Mobile Suites 5th wheel I installed 2 fans, one at the bottom area and one up top at the factory installed vent. This way I was sucking hot air and helping it extract out the top. We found before that if we were parked where the kitchen/refridge side was exposed to the direct sunlight and it got hot, the fridge was not able to keep the correct temps. I could remove the fridge exterior acess panel and either plug in or unplug as the need arose. I bought 2 square box fans about 4 inches across and they fit very well and had no noise we could ever hear.
