RE: Help water overflow nautilus 2.5

I would try turning both red and blue handles 180 degrees and see what happens. Wouldn't be the first time the manual was wrong. It might be that the blue handle should be left as is and just turn the green one. I would try both ways and see what goes on. Edit: On further thought, most water and gas handles are on when they are in line with the pipe and off when they are positioned 90 deg from the run of the pipe. I would turn the green handle so it points down (off) and leave the blue handle as it is (on) until the fresh water tank is full and then turn it down (off). In other words, I would fool around with the position of the handles until it works the way it should. If you are wanting to connect long time to the hydrant, then both should be in the off position and the line from your water pump to the trailer pipes should be open. You would not have a hose connected to the top inlet - only the city water inlet (white hose at bottom right) At least this is the way it has worked in every trailer I have owned.:) Barney

RE: using a cargo carriers on my travel trailer

The back bumper of most travel trailers is not meant to have anything attached to it. It is designed to hold the sewer hose and not much else. It you want to put something heavier back there, you need to reinforce it with welded supports and/or encase it with stronger metal along with stronger mounting to the frame of the trailer. You would probably be best off putting a regular 2" receiver welded to the trailer frame on the back of the trailer rather than use the bumper to mount something. Also keep in mind the removal of tongue weight if you carry something heavy back there. Most travel trailers have a long rear overhang which makes the addition of of weight that far behind the axles troublesome for many trailers. You are risking sway problems because of that lost weight. Hope this helps you out in your decision making.:) Barney

RE: Heater Specs on 2019 Palomino Puma XLE Lite 27RBQC

I would call the dealer and have him go look at the unit to find out the heater size. I'm sure it is going to have a propane furnace sized appropriately by the manufacturer for that unit. Keep in mind that almost no RV's are suitable for extended winter use. Spring and Fall are ok but the insulation in most RV's is very thin and most will not be comfortable in extended cold weather without modification. Barney

RE: Laser printer/scanner recommendation?

I think this Brother color laser printer meets all of your requirements. It is the one I would get if I needed a color printer. As it is my B&W Brother Laser has been flawless for the past several years so don't need a new one.

RE: Visible Cell Plans & Service

We switched from Verizon to Visible when they first brought it out. Have been very satisfied and have never found a place that we did not have coverage. It is our only phone service and I also use it as a hotspot when we are in our trailer in the Northern Michigan woods. I pay $25/month all in. There are no additional charges at all - ie taxes, surcharges, fees, etc. Barney

RE: Heartland Trailrunner HELP

My advice is to get it back in good enough shape to sell. Then sell the thing for as much as you can get (probably a loss) and move on to an apartment or a stick and brick home if possible. You have discovered the hard way that the present RV industry is a long way from having their act together. Sorry. Barney

RE: Roof Update

I had mine done several years ago. My roof was completely torn off and replaced in three days by a very conscientious and well trained technician from RV Armor. They came to my trailer location out in the woods and did it right there on site. The cost was just a bit over $6000 which included the removal of a ton of Eternabond tape. I am completely thrilled with the work done and how the roof looks now. No more worry about leaks. As you can see by the pictures below, my roof looked terrible but was not leaking a bit as evidenced by the condition of the wood after the rubber was torn off. I was a bit worried but knew I had been quite proactive in taking care of it for the past 17 years. I would have no worries about recommending this company if you are looking to repair your roof or are interested in getting the longest life possible out of your rig. Barney Roof before Rubber roof removed. Cloth material roof covering Roof right after liquid application Roof completed. We left the luggage rack off because it had never been used and never would be.

RE: Towing 5th with an Andersen Hitch in Short Bed Truck

The bashing of a company has gone far enough. It you have no more input to the OP's question then I will close this one. I cannot let the continued bashing of one company go on. Barney

RE: Then what?

Too much clean up needed to continue this discussion. Thread closed. Next time leave ALL political discussion out.

RE: Then what?

Great post, too bad it will be closed soon! Nah. I fixed the original post so it would not have to be closed. I think this is a legitimate question that needs to be discussed. Barney

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

Snip... BTW...agree with friends, even forum friends I've never met, being an important asset. I feel like I actually know some of you, and appreciate your online friendship! Three of my very best friends are guys I met here on Have met them in person for quite a few years but talked with them here for a long time before that. :) I'm sure that is true for many others here also. This place is more than just reading and informing. Barney

RE: Covered Storage of RV In Driveway

Open this link. Drag and drop the photo. Copy and paste the link that it returns. (This link is thanks to the user named 1492.) Dang it! the link gets blocked by my virus software with message that it is "known dangerous site not highly recommended to proceed". Any other ideas to post a few pics? I, and many others, have been using that site for quite a few years. I just click on "continue to the site" and go on. There is nothing there that will hurt you or your computer. Barney

RE: This net is dying!

The app uses Imgur and the photos are governed by their rules. I too used Photobucket for years but to post a photo on our website was a whole lot more involved than it is now using the app designed by our Technology forum moderator 1492. You could not post a url directly into your post from Photobucket without using the picture posting icon. This is what many members could not understand because it was so convoluted. It also did not automatically size the picture to our forum guidelines forcing moderators to spend many hours re-sizing pictures. All you do in his app is upload your picture, copy the url that results, and paste it into your post. Could not be simpler than that. Your picture will appear and be properly sized. You don't use the picture posting icon in the small boxes above the large dialog box at all. Barney

RE: leaf spring broken..trailer legs?

Trailer Legs website. I don't have nor have I ever used them but they look like they would be more work than just using boards. I see they did use boards in the video to raise the axle enough to get the jacks under it. Also don't see why they would cause any damage to the springs if used. I would save my money. Barney

RE: This net is dying!

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. Follow these directions exactly. 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.:) Note: Norton Lifelock does not like the site for some reason. I, and others, use it regularly without issue. When I get the red "Dangerous Webpage Blocked" message I just click on "continue to the site" down at the bottom and everything is ok. Have been doing this since 2014.

RE: 2017 Aerolite Dutchman 284bhsl suspension question

I suspect the previous owner put on larger tires. I would crawl under there and take a good look at the springs and also the note the tire size and compare with what is on the placard on the left front corner of the unit. Barney
