RE: Towing with a Tundra

Your Tundra is no more thirsty than most others out there towing large trailers. Be happy with 10mpg - many get much less! :) Barney

RE: Lippert Components - Not our friends.

Surprising since DIY means do it yourself and thats what I did. I fail to see how this discussion fits into this forum. Moving to General RVing Issues forum from DIY. Barney Sent you a PM but for the others out there, the DIY forum is for Modifications and Upgrades and is not for DIY repairs. Those types of threads belong in the Tech Issues forum. Since this thread morphed into a different type of discussion, I felt you would have better response and exposure in the General forum rather the the Tech Issues forum where it really belonged.

RE: Front Cap Reseal Price

I would (and did) do it myself in about 2 hours with a roll of 4inch wide Eternabond tape.I did every roof penetration and both front and rear caps on my trailer about 15 years ago and it is still protecting my RVs roof today with never a single leak. If you clean the area well and apply it according to the directions on the website you will not have a leak again. I purchased two 50ft rolls and still have half of the 2nd one left for emergencies (it probably has aged out). Doesn't get much better than that! :B Barney

RE: What is the best weight distribution hitch?

Snip... Well now, the administrator edited my response to remove previous quotes, which essentially renders my reply meaningless. Maybe it already was. LOL If you are one who goes to the end of a thread and reads only the last page or post then your statement might be true but I only removed unnecessary quotes that immediately preceded your post. I, and many others, do not care to read the same stuff over and over again, plus it makes the page much longer than necessary which means scrolling down to read the thread. If removing previous quotes makes the reply meaningless, I will not remove them. I am just trying to make the forum threads more enjoyable and easy to read. Barney

RE: What is the best weight distribution hitch?

Good point. Speaking as one who had always used premium priced hitches; any major brand hitch, properly set up, with a reasonable TV/TT combination will do the job. You need to decide if you are willing to pay big $ for the difference between very good and very, very good. I am. The differences we are talking about are tiny and expensive. I agree with your first paragraph but wonder if you have ever towed with a Hensley or Pullrite hitch. The differences in towing results between the normal hitch regardless of brand or price, and the Hensley or Pullrite, are NOT tiny although they ARE pretty expensive until you sell. Barney

RE: Came through Atlanta yesterday.

I agree with Moderator. Having gone through almost every fall and back North every spring for the past 17 years we almost always had smooth sailing between those hours. Notice I said almost! We always stayed at least one lane over from the right lane except for several places that required a couple of lanes over. Barney

RE: What is the best weight distribution hitch?

I never heard of a Pullrite, but it looks interesting. I can see why it eliminates sway. It looks very heavy, it seems to hang low under the truck bed and I'm guessing that it blocks access to the spare tire. Is it expensive? The Hensley & Pro-Pride are both also expensive, is theft an issue with them? If so, is there a way to secure them when the trailer is left unattended? The Pullrite is very heavy, hangs lower under the vehicle, and is just about the same price as a Hensley. It is also very hard and labor intensive to install which frequently requires relocating the spare tire to the truck or bed of the tow vehicle. Theft is not an issue with the Hensley for few reasons. 1. You can lock it on to the tongue with a padlock just like a normal hitch. 2. Most thiefs would not know what it is or what its' value is and therefore would not target it for theft. 3. Even if they DID want to get it, it would take quite a long time to remove from the tongue which they most likely would not want to spend. 4. Hitch thefts are not a problem in general. :) Barney P.S. I have been offline since early yesterday morning and when I saw the title of this thread this morning I figured there would be a lot of arguing going on. Thank you everybody for keeping your comments on topic and, in general, friendly and good natured. :):):)

RE: How to remove PVC vent pipe out of bathroom

It is very easy to post pictures on our forums. One of our moderators, 1492, developed this photo posting app to post your pictures. It works for other internet sites also. There is no need to have a separate hosting site for your pictures in order to use it. It is very simple to use. 1. Upload your picture from your computer to the app. 2. Copy the resulting URL. 3. Paste that URL into your post without ANY changes. No additions or deletions. Your picture will then appear in your post and be properly sized for use on our forums.:) Barney

RE: RV Quality

"My spring bushings are not worn out, proof that you don't need wet bolt kits." Are you sure about that? Have you taken the bolts out of the spring equalizers and shackles to see? Unless you have bronze bushings from the factory (which would be quite unusual unless it came with special equalizers and shackles) then I would encourage you to take a look. You might be very surprised at what you find. :E Barney

RE: Trailer brakes

Thanks for posting that Ben and for saving those pictures and Les's article. I had a whole bunch of mine lost when Photobucket pulled their dirty trick. I have also saved those pictures you just posted on my computer for future use. Thanks again and have a very Happy New Year! :) P.S. I miss him a lot also. He is very happy riding around on his Gold Wing now. Barney

RE: 2019 Cross country RV trip planning

With all due respect, how can you not realize that the West is "full of mountains?" Nevada has 278 mountain ranges. If you were RVing in China, would you know where all the mountains are? Barney
