Time for another bump.

Measured the cabinet door thickness so I'd know what size screw to use mounting the framed pics DW has to have. Bumping around in the trailer I can't just hang them on a nail. If she can't be with the Gkids she can at least see what they look like.

Slinky storage.
What works for us: large covered plastic tub. Keeps all those nasty germ bugs away from everything else. Stows in tunnel right above the drain. Holds everything-slinky: +50' assorted hoses with end caps, connectors, elbows, spare gaskets, sewie-only rinse hose. On arrival home everything gets a good rinse, overnight dry, then re-stow.

Is this thread still "alive" ??

See there are newer "versions" - which is OK, but sure don't want to lose this valuable source of info !!

"Gadgets and Gizmos" is more of a rant thread about which things you've bought that you regret, because they didn't work like they were supposed to.

I'm thinking the "Handy" part of the title applies to this!

Keep those "HHGP&G" coming!

Impossible to keep up with all the "good stuff" and ideas - so if you think it's nothing new - post it anyway.

Anybody use a forklift to move (maneuver) their 5th wheel into tight parking space at their home?

Or other alternatives?..[emoticon]

They make battery operated devices for moving conventional trailer around like you want. Someone may one for 5th wheels. Do a search on internet.

Well aware of all of 'em!..[emoticon]

"Closest" to being adequate for a 10K 5th wheel (with 2K pin wt) is
a Parkit 360 at $4K. (Based in Canada - no USA dealers)

At $4K - Easy to see why a used forklift is a bargain.
(Which is what dealers & repair facilities use).

BTW - in my TT days I owned a mover. OK for paved flat ground. Not even in the ballpark for a 5th.

Just hoped someone with a forklift might chime in with likes/dislikes, etc...[emoticon]

Lots smaller trailer but I use a tractor with a front end loader with a custom made frame with trailer ball instead of a bucket to move my trailer around in tight places. Much more useful for me to have around for other uses than a forklift. Most forklifts are only good on hard surfaces. A tractor does better on grass and uneven ground. Problem will be the size tractor you will need with a 2K pin weight. My tractor can only do 1K.
