Foam Core Floor Repair. Epoxy?

I’m looking to repair some soft spots in my floor. It is not water damage, but where the foam has compressed in heavy use areas. I’ve seen a couple of YouTube videos where they drilled a grid of holes in the floor and pumped an epoxy resin in there and supposedly when it hardens up it is good to go. Has anyone tried this, and does it work? These guys did it from the top and you had to put new flirting down, but I’m thinking is I came from the bottom I might could save the flooring. Thanks

RE: How to avoid getting blown all over the road

You mentioned having the Blue Ox, and Friction Sway bars?? The Blue Ox Sway Pro has sway control built into it, and uses the tongue weight to control the sway. The friction bars may be interfering with the Blue Ox. I pull a 33ft TT with the Blue Ox and have no sway. Great choice on tires. The Revos are probably my favorite tire I've ever had, but they are $$$. Good Luck.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

I've to to stop and pee, and stretch my legs, and needing fuel every 3hrs works about perfect for me. Here in the southeast, fuel is easy to find, I here out west it can be much further between gas stations. 175-200 miles is my range to find fuel.

RE: Trailering

I start looking for fuel at about 175 miles, which is about the time I need to pee, and I want to get up and walk around, so that works out pretty well. We travel around the southeast, and we rarely are more than 15-20 miles from a gas station.

RE: Emerald Coast Florida, campground advice

Thank you all for the suggestions. While it wasn’t our first choice we secured a site at Navarre Beach RV resort, and felt lucky to do so, given that summer is such a popular travel time. Thanks again for your help. We stayed there last May, and the folks that ran it were super nice. It was clean, and nothing fancy, our site was a little tight. We hung out of the pier in the park a good bit. It is a short drive over to the beach, and you can use the public beach right over the bridge, or drive down to the National Seashore.

RE: Dually rental

Check enterprise truck rental, they have HD trucks,and I think on long term rentals will do a 5th wheel.

RE: Route around Atlanta

With COVID, I don't think traffic is nearly as bad as it used to be. My wife had to go to her office the other day, and instead of being 1.5 hours, it was about .75 hours. Like someone suggested, just get in a middle lane, and go straight through, just take your time and don't hurry.

RE: Pushing a TT into position from the rear bumper...?

Would it be possible to pull it in there with a skid steer or a tractor?? Depending on the terrain maybe a 4 wheeler with a dolly of some type under the tongue. You’d definitely want a way to apply the brakes. There’s a way, it will just depend on the terrain, and budget.

RE: Pushing a TT into position from the rear bumper...?

Can't figure out if you are serious or joking. How are you planning to pick up the tongue? There will be considerable amount of weight on the tongue to deal with which would require some sort of wheeled dolly. Then you have the issue of trailer bumpers being nothing more than 20 ga sheet metal, you would have to reinforce that considerably.. Perhaps consider a Motor Home instead of a trailer, then you can simply drive it into position.. You will end up wrecking a trailer attempting to push from behind.. Of course there will be a bunch of folks posting they do it all the time.. I think it is a pretty good question as I’ve been in a couple of sites I’d like to do that, and have manually done it when I had a pop up. The silly suggestion is to buy a motor home to permanently park.

RE: Coleman Propane Bottles

depending on what you need them for, you can get a hose to go on a 20lb tank then connect to the 1lb device connections. That might be a good solution.

RE: High Miles??

I’ve had my truck for 18 years and 250,000 miles. It has been towed one time when the fuel pump went out. I think most vehicles are pretty reliable to 150k, and some much longer. We took and accord and a pilot to 250k with no problems. My kids both drive 18 year old jeeps with over 100k on them. I’d have no hesitation in buying a vehicle in good condition with 50-100k miles. Just read up on issues for that particular model to learn of any issues.

Forest River Foam Core floor soft spots

I’ve got a 5 year old TT with that foam floor, and it has developed soft spots in the floor. It isn’t water related, it is just a crappy design. Has anyone successfully repaired this??

RE: Changing flat tires?

Had on blow drivers side on the interstate. Luckily a wide should, but it was like 95 degrees and humid in South Carolina. My 16 year old and I coordinated our plan before getting out of the truck. He started loosening lugs with the 4 way while I jacked. I handed home the spare as he pulled the shredded one off, slapped the new one on and dropped the Jack down. Back on the road in less than 10 min.

RE: 2022 F350 on order

'22 on order already????? Last I knew if one ordered a vehicle now, came thru as current model year. Orders for 2022 started on Monday, supposedly enough 2021’s have been ordered to keep the factory busy until June 1 when they start building 2022s.

RE: New Steps

I installed them on my TT. The hardest part was removing the rusty bolts on the old steps. The actual install is easy.

RE: Ford 2022 Super Duty

That link was a waste of time, I even looked at the videos of a truck making dust and found nothing worthwhile. If folks use that fluff to make a purchase decision it is no wonder there are so many financed trucks, Do you think if people didn’t care about fluff they would pay cash for their vehicles? Seems most people borrow money to buy vehicles but I’m gonna guess that those who pay cash might be more likely to buy the top of the line models. I bet it is the opposite. When you pay cash the check goes from $50k to $80 when you go from an XLT to a Platinum. That is more painful than the payment going up a little When they stretch the payment out to 72-84 months. They quote you a payment on $900 on the XLT at 60 months, or $1000 for a Platinum for 84 months.

RE: Ford 2022 Super Duty

Wish they would get rid of that column shifter putting it in the console like the 150 and use that column space for a paddle shifter or other stalk accessories.. I had an f-150 as a rental in Colorado, and I loved the console shifter with the gear selector on the side to shift coming down the mountain. It was so comfortable.

RE: FL questions

We stayed at Lake Rousseau RV park, it is about half way between Rainbow Springs and Crystal River. Decent campground and friendly people, we misted used it for a base camp, and didn’t spent much time there. Rainbow and Crystal Rivers are amazing. Rainbow has tons of wildlife, but no manatees.

RE: How long do you drive/tow in a day?

We still work, so we will push to get somewhere depending on time and what is between home and final destination. We did Marathon FL (Keys) to ATL in one day it was 850-900 miles. Left at 8am, and got home at 2am, we took a couple of extended stops to walk around a bit, and there was a wrench that had us stopped for 2 hrs. That was too much for one day. They next time we split it up.
