RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

It is in my phone - Galaxy S8+. I use it as a hotspot when we are camping all the time. Barney

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

Snip... If AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon wanted to provide truly unlimited data with no caps, no throttling, no anything, at a reasonable price, they would do it themselves. They don't need resellers to sell their product. They already have! Check out Visible by Verizon. I have been on their network for the past year and have had no place that was not covered. Unlimited minutes, texts, and data with no speed cap ever. $40/month all in. No extra charges at all. Barney

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

Beware of adding too much fill to level out the property. That could cause the two large trees which are presently under water to die. Changing the ground level around tree roots can be fatal to the plant in some cases. This has happened to me. I think if I were in your situation, I would try putting in some drain pipe runs out to a place where the water can flow to. Could even be the gravel filled trench already mentioned. The grass can grow over it but the drain still works. This was our solution (perforated flexible drain pipe)and has been working great for about 20 years at our home. Fairly inexpensive repair also. :) Barney

RE: Need hitch advice please.

In your photos of your setup, you have THREE components pictured. 1. The shank - that portion that inserts into the trucks receiver. In your case you have a double shank, possibly homemade. TorkLift also makes one very similar. You need one as shown by Mitch150. 2. Another shank - the portion that the hitch head bolts onto. This is the only shank part you need, only you need to get one with the proper drop to level your trailer. 3. The hitch head - the part that bolts onto the shank with two large bolts (usually torqued to around 260ft/lbs or so) and which the ball mounts onto. What this whole thing amounts to is that you need to purchase a new shank with the proper drop to level your trailer, mount your hitch head on it in the proper position to level your trailer, install the ball and then attach the trailer and go camping! :) Unless you have need for a multiple shank mount to carry a bike or other item while towing your trailer, I would sell or otherwise dispose of that shank you have now.

RE: tire pressure

I have run my trailers tires at max sidewall pressure for over 30 years with no blowouts or even a flat tire. If I were still towing today I would continue that practice. Most trailers are loading the tires to very near their maximum load and the tires need all the help they can get. I also upgraded my tires and rims from stock "C's" to "E's" as the tires wore or aged out. Barney

RE: Cleaning the carpet?

I agree with Pigman regarding the Resolve and also the Dyson. I had to take our Dyson completely apart and clean it with soap and water and then blow with air compressor to get all the powder out. The carpet did come out very clean however. :) Barney

RE: Question about tires

Sorry Jerry but I have no answer for you. I don't know. By the way, my previous post was not directed just to you but to any other members who may think I try to play favorites.:) Barney

RE: Question about tires

Nobody has complained to me about anything and it is not a matter of liking or disliking anybody. I just delete any comments that are personal in nature. If you wish to say something directly or indirectly to another member that is even somewhat flaming or derogatory, then do via PM and not on the public forum. The alternative to editing out comments such as those, is to delete the whole post. If I did that then you would complain about that so might as well just take out the personal stuff. Barney

RE: do you really need a battery?

If towing you should read up on the FEDERAL MOTOR CARRIER SAFETY REGULATIONS Break Away and Emergency Braking It has always been my belief that those regulations pertain to commercial carriers and not to private individuals towing their own private trailers, although many of the the things in those regulations can also be applied to private towing. I guess what I am getting at is that I think those are possible suggestions, but not enforceable, for private use. I would assume that there ARE regulations published for private towing, usually on the State level. Barney

RE: Need Manual

I agree that most manufactures manuals for the trailer are very generic and almost useless. What you really need are the manuals for the appliances that are in your rig. I think you can probably download the manuals for most of your rigs appliances from a website owned by member Chris Bryant who has his own RV repair shop,Bryant RV Services. Click here and be prepared with the model name or number of the various appliances you need manuals for. Hope this helps you out a bit.:) Barney

RE: Truck Camper Northern Lite 811

I don't know who or why it was moved to 5th Wheels from Truck Campers but it belongs in the Truck Camper forum. I am going to move it back. Barney

RE: Tag trailer hitch

You would have to make sure that the receiver on the back of your 5th wheel is capable of using WD. You would also need to check on the strength of the main frame members in the rear of the coach. Many rigs have a very long overhang and the rear frame members are already stressed to the limit or are of a smaller size than the main frame. I think a lot of the answer to your question would be determined by how much tongue weight is being talked about and how big or long is the utility trailer. I have seen 5th wheels set up to carry a full dress Harley Davidson on a lift on the rear of a rig. They had to have their frame reinforced from the rear of the rig to all the way in front to the trailer axles. They were parked right next to us for the whole time one winter in Florida. They went out almost every day on that bike and had a blast.:) Barney
