RE: Hub grease seal.

Stop pumping and wipe off excess when fresh grease appears. If you start seeing fresh grease appear out the front of the hub, the hub is overfilled with grease, and has likely already blown out the inner seal. I've dismantled numerous hubs that use the EZ lube system. The majority of the grease pumped in through the zerk fitting goes BEHIND the inner bearing, and blows out the seal.

RE: Spittoon? in a shower Wolf Pup camper

...but having the kids sleeping right above your head must be pretty bad for the sex life. If there’s kids sleeping above you in the camper, you’ve already gotten all of that you’re gonna get. From that person, anyway. :):) ROFL. I was thinking the same thing.

RE: Honda EU220i Generator Availability

This would make the second recall on them within the last year or so. I've checked locally with 4 dealers who all tell me that this model is subject to a national recall from Honda due to a gas leak problem. I did some searching and Can only find the recall from last year... There doesn't appear to be a NEW recall on a leaking fuel issue. https://powerequipment.honda.com/support/recalls-and-updates

RE: 2012 Yukon XL Towing 30Ft

That trailer is so much longer than the SUV I would not do it. It's usually called the tail wagging the dog situation. Wait, what?!? How many trailers are on the road where they are much longer than the truck? Does that make them unsafe too?

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires on Sale

Just a few months old... look like they are straight from the factory. Extra clean and shiny. Mine are D rated, not C That's the nice thing about the Endurance tires... all the sizes I have seen have a higher load rating than the same size tires in other brands. Here's a video I found a while back on weight of an Endurance vs a Les Schwab ST tire.

RE: Graveside Boondocking?

I see many post about boondocking. Some in very public parking areas such as Wal-Mart parking lots and some on the side of mountain road. I don't consider parking overnight in a Wal-Mart parking lot to be "boondocking" The official definition of Boondocks is: 1 US, informal : a remote, thinly settled rural area https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/boondocks Side of a mountain road definitely IS boondocking.

RE: Upgrading head and bars only on EQ hitch?

...On another note, I've never heard of someone downsizing their tow vehicle so they are right at or near the limit of that rig's capabilities...

RE: Upgrading head and bars only on EQ hitch?

Selling the individual parts you are replacing is viable, but most people will want the whole kit, or at lease the bars, the head and the shank. Selling the head and bars might be a tough sell. I'm just saying this because anything I don't need, I sell it on Craigslist or some other online market place.

RE: Front glass window protection

Why do you think it needs to be protected? So it doesn't shatter from a flying rock, then require replacement in the middle of a trip. It's highly improbably that a glass shop can replace it same day or next day like they can with a car or truck windshield.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires on Sale

Received my tires this morning... they came overnight with free shipping. What's the date code on them? The sale was probably because not many 14" tires are used in the RV world, and someone was overloaded with inventory.

RE: Single Slide Truck Lean

Even in TC water tanks and holding tanks are over center Apparently you haven't looked at an Arctic Fox. On the 811 and 990 the waster water tanks are on the left.

RE: towing w/ camper few ?s

In instances of death wobble that I've heard about, were also in Jeeps with lift kits and big tires. When death wobble happened, it was typically from hitting a bump or some form of irregularity on the road surface. Slowing down or stopping brought the death wobble episode under control, but it could happen again at the right speed or a bump.

RE: Used Arctic Fox

She sent me the VIN, I looked it up, well within the limits of her truck. Where is this "VIN lookup" place that tells you an RV is "within the limits" of a given tow vehicle? I've never heard of a website offering that kind of a database.

RE: Any problems with Goodyear Endurance tires?

Thanks everyone for your feedback. It looks like the Goodyear Endurance is performing well so far. So I going to put them on the my travel trailer. Be sure the tire shop balances them.

RE: Help - Unsafe or Rock it?

Also, check the cab over height if it clears the truck cab. Many older campers may not fit the taller cab or bed height of the new trucks. I'm betting there won't be clearance. Ford reinvented the cab height years ago, making it impossible to put old campers on newer truck unless you build a spacer under them. I'd skip the old camper and look for something newer.

RE: Rockerball trailer hitch -- has anyone tried it?

I sure wouldn't want my ball rocking back and forth as I was towing.

RE: Any problems with Goodyear Endurance tires?

After sales of a sufficient number of these tires, you’ll hear the howling. At quantity is it "sufficient" for people to star howling? These have been on the market a few years now. (2 or 3 I think). Northwood and ORV are using them as OEM tires.

RE: Windsheld Wipers

I use the old fashioned RainX product that requires elbow grease during the application. After that, it doesn't matter what wipers are on the vehicle. I rarely have to turn them on when on the interstate regardless of sprinkle or downpour. Ditto. Been doing the RainX treatment since the late 80s. A bottle typically last 3 years or longer.
