RE: Trunnion Weight Distribution Spring

No need to spend any money. Just measure the front fender opening to ground. Then hitch up and see remeasure - note the change. Then tilt the hitch head back some, hook up again and remeasure - note the change and compare with first measurement. If that measurement is within 50% of the first measurement you should be good to go. Just don't get the front down lower than you started with. Don't worry about the rear as it will take care of itself and follow you wherever you go! :W If you would like a very detailed explanation of how to do this, click here to go to the sticky at the top of the Towing forum on how to set up a weight distribution hitch.

RE: Old laptop working after 24+ hrs of fiddling

I just gave away my three year old MacBook Pro to my grandson. I hated that thing! It only had two "C" ports on each side and that was all. Had a heck of a time trying to move pictures from my phone to the computer, never did figure out the file system after almost 45 years with a PC, too many things are limited to that machine, and finally the thing locked up on me twice and I had to take it to a pro to get it running again. I ended up restoring it to factory new condition and giving it away to by grandson. Hope he has better luck than I did. I replaced it with an MSI gaming laptop that, so far, seems to be of excellent quality and is very fast and fun to use. It gets excellent reviews so I hope it will last for a few years. I also have two other laptops that I put Linux "Mint" on and they are working well even though they are completely out of date and would be considered junk by most. I use one of them all the time in the trailer out in the woods and my phone as the hotspot. Works for me.:) Barney

RE: Leveler (Stabilizer) Jacks on a Class C?

I would say bolt them on and go camping!:). Just make sure you are conscious of them regarding clearance. Many class C's have a very long rear overhang and anything back there is subject to contact with the ground at times. Barney

RE: I Winterized ............. but then this happened.

It is an easy fix. I have done it several times. Barney

RE: Tandem axle vs single

Not necessarily! I have been driving for 70 years, 50 of them towing a trailer of some kind, and have never had a blowout in all of those years. Barney, Give me the contact information for your Guardian Angel. :) I recently purchased a used TT. Had a blowout 10 minutes after leaving the dealership. That very day I replaced all four tires with Goodyear Endurance. May your luck continue! Don't need the luck anymore as our trailer is done travelling and now sits permanently in a beautiful campground in the Northern Michigan woods. As far as the reasons why I never had a blowout - probably the biggest one, besides being lucky, is that I always had my trailer tires at the maximum sidewall pressure and never towed faster than 65mph unless passing someone. I used Good Year Marathon ST tires for years followed by Maxxis 8008 ST for the past 20 or so. I usually changed them out every 6 years. Worked for me!:) Barney

RE: Need a new propane detector

This is the one that I replaced my old one with. It mounts in the same hole in a cabinet near the floor and is hard wired into the trailer. It also comes in black and brown, Barney

RE: Sailun tires

Your photo never appeared at all. It may have appeared on your computer but it never showed on mine or, I suspect, anybody else's. To post a picture on the forums, go to this site, upload your picture to the app, copy the resulting URL and paste into your post without adding anything at all to the URL. No additions and no subtractions. Simply copy and paste it into a post. Your picture will then appear and be properly sized for use on our forums. Good luck. Barney

RE: Tandem axle vs single

Snip... Blowing a tire, which will happen…and to you, is another. Snip... Not necessarily! I have been driving for 70 years, 50 of them towing a trailer of some kind, and have never had a blowout in all of those years. Only had one flat tire and had that changed in about 30 minutes. Barney

My Opinion: The guy who bumped the thread is a spammer. I agree. Thread closed.

RE: MorRyde IS is finally happening

Life is Good ! ! Love those moments* This post was edited 11/19/21 07:31am by an administrator/moderator * WOW, you musta said sum reel bad chitz. Yea, I don't think I did ???? perhaps a mod being a bit grumpy ??? I don't remember Nope, not a grumpy mod at all. I took out a quote that was entirely unnecessary and only made the page longer. I did not touch anything you typed. Very frequently, when you see that "edited" comment, it was because the person was replying to a comment immediately above his post and therefore no "quote" is needed. It just makes the page longer and we have to see the same thing again. In the case of multiple quotes as in this post of mine, they are there and necessary for context because of a new page and it is somewhat farther down the thread. That is not the case when you are replying to someone immediately above you. Barney

RE: Best way to seal roof?

Barney, There is no comparison with your roof and our fiberglass roofs on our 20" Xplorer Class B's. Disagree! Did you look at the link I provided? They do work not only on RV's but commercial buildings etc. Here is a quote from one of their FAQ's: RV Armor can be applied to fiberglass, rubber / EPDM, TPO, metal, wood, or virtually any other type of RV roof. There absolutely is a comparison! The roof on your Explorer does the same job as the one on my Sunnybrook and is exposed to the same elements. The materials it is made of does not make any difference. Barney

RE: Best way to seal roof?

If you want your roof to look new and stay that way for a long time then take a look at my post here.. I just had my roof redone by RV Armor and they did a fantastic job. The cost may be a bit more than you wish to spend but might be worth a call.:) That thread will give you some more options to consider also. Barney

RE: TT tires look askew!

OP here. Thanks for the quick replies! And for the photos posting tips. My McAfee anti-virus software didn't like that website! Snip... There is nothing wrong with the website. It has been in use here for quite a few years now and I used it to post your picture. It must be due to some setting in your McAfee software. I use it with Norton on about 4 different computers with no problems. Don't be afraid to use it. Barney

RE: TT tires look askew!

I agree with the above post. ^^^. This happens very easily on pavement. Not so much on sand or grass as the tires can slide easily. Here is your picture. If you will follow these directions exactly, 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.:) I have posted a test thread here for members to try out the app and see how it works. That thread is ONLY for testing however and not for comments on pictures. Good luck. Barney

RE: 20# propane tank

Years ago we had a popup trailer that was stored in my Son-in-laws barn. His barn cat tipped over a propane heater that caught the barn on fire and it burned to the ground along with our popup. The propane tank on the front of the trailer was burnt and bent but it never ruptured or exploded. I posted a picture of the trailer after the fire several times on the forum way back in 2004 but they were lost when Photobucket changed their hosting policy. Barney
