RE: Lost dust caps

That is very nice, but the average Joe is not going to have either your experience, or your tools to do the job in that short amount of time. Advising someone to go ahead and have the brakes inspected because it only takes 15 minutes to do it yourself is not quite accurate advice in my opinion. While the advice to do the inspection is sound and good advice, I think the time estimate is completely unrealistic for the average person and is where I differed from your opinion. Thanks for the clarification.:) Barney

RE: A Very Touching Movie

Mr.Ed, We watched "Miracle in the Woods" last night on your recommendation. We really enjoyed the movie and thank you for the recommendation. :) I have been writing down the movies mentioned here and plan on watching some more this summer as time permits. :) Barney

RE: Yummy!

Grit, don't be to hard on the previous owner.:). He may have thought the tanks were clean BUT: Many times, "stuff" gets left behind when dumping, even with using the tank rinse. This is usually in the corners of the tank or just on either side of the dump valve location in the lowest part of the tank. I have found the best way to get this stuff out, is to use a "down thru the toilet" wand to blast the stuff out. It usually takes quite a long time with spraying down there to get the job done. I used to do it at least once per season right at the end before we returned home from our snowbird site and still do the same thing today after our last camping weekend of the season. We have a built in tank rinser that I use every dump but the stuff still seems to accumulate in the locations mentioned. I used a wand similar to this one except mine had three holes in the end for the water to come out of. I like this one better as it should be easier to "aim" at the poo piles and probably give a stronger blast of water. The first time I used this it took quite a while to stop the pieces from coming out - probably old dried "stuff" being broken up by the water blast. Subsequent years it did not take nearly as long. Hope you find the above helpful and not too gross! :B Barney

RE: Turning a FW around in a Culdesac

snip... When I was part way out I looked at the second trailer hop up and over the curb that it was 8" from when parked. Glad I had my Motorcycle secured well. That is because of the long extension of just about all trailers behind the axles. For the newbees, that is called "tail swing" and if you are not careful it can get you in trouble. Barney

RE: Roof AC Rep - Dometic Duo-Therm > Brisk Air II - Questions

I replaced my identical air conditioner a few years ago but with a different make. The replacement you are considering should work fine. We have an Atwood 15,000 "Air Command" ducted unit and have been very pleased with it. Our previous unit, a Dometic "Duo Therm" lasted about 13 years before we replaced it with the present one. The Atwood is much quieter than the Dometic it replaced. Air conditioners You are correct that the term "ducted" means the air is circulated through "ducts" in the ceiling. These ducts may just be tunnels formed via foam blocks or they may be actual ducts formed with plastic or metal. In the non-ducted the cold air comes directly out of the unit into the trailer. The reason for the additional cost for a "ducted" unit is because the thermostat and control box for the air conditioner unit are separate from the unit itself. On "Non ducted" units, those are built in to the ceiling panel on the inside of the trailer and also contain the controls (knobs and numbers). On ducted units, like yours and mine, the thermostat (think knobs and numbers) is mounted on a wall someplace, and the control box is mounted up inside the air conditioner. Those two items are usually included in the AC price but the ceiling panel is sold separately from the air conditioner unit itself and is an additional cost. There is considerable more work installing a ducted unit vs a non ducted hence the additional cost. Not sure about $300 worth though. Barney

RE: Skyline Koala 21C Wheel Bearing Repacking

The make of the trailer does not have anything to do with the bearings - they are all the same. Take a look at this post, stuck in the Towing forum, for a pictorial on how to not only inspect and pack the bearings, but how to do a brake job/inspection also. :) Barney

RE: What was that hitch called?

If you would like to see a post about the installation of a Pullrite hitch, complete with detailed photos, click here. I found the link to that site from searching the archives of this forum and found it in a post from way back in 2010. :) Barney

RE: Break Away Cable

Don't worry about finding a match for the old one. They all do the same thing and are simply a switch. Just purchase a whole new unit. They are cheap. Hopkins Breakaway switch Bargeman breakaway switch Barney

RE: intermittent brakes

Check out this post by forum member JBarca that has complete directions on wiring your brakes, complete with pictures. Also embedded early in his post is a link to another thread by former Travel Trailer moderator LAdams on the same subject and also contains a lot of excellent pictures to help explain what is going on. I think both of these old threads will be a big help to you in re-wiring your brakes - which by the way I think is the best route to go.:) Barney

RE: old topics

Anyway, the thread remains because it still applies, and people are still interested in that topic. Barney If we applied thought that to every thread with usable info, every thread would be a sticky. Delta, Every sticky is there because the moderator of that forum thought it needed to be there. You have no idea how many inquiries both Les Adams (former TT forum moderator) and I received concerning the Hensley hitch and how it works. We both spent considerable time and effort answering e-mails and PM's about the Hensley hitch so we decided to make that thread a sticky. Most threads run their course and then people lose interest and move on or start a new thread about the topic so there is no need for a sticky. That is not the case with that thread. The Hensely hitch has a very small following, and even less people will actually buy one due to the extreme cost. If someone wants to find info on it, they can search for it just like they are expected to do with other threads and topics. Please see my original reply to this topic. Also, whether someone buys one or not has no bearing. Selling is not the purpose of that, or any other thread. The thread would probably be of more relevance to be classified as a sticky if it wasn't a locked thread, or 10 years old. I don't see why being a locked thread or age has anything to do with it. Everything in that thread applies as much today as it did 10 years ago and I still refer people to it from time to time to help them understand the hitch. P.S. All forum threads are locked automatically after one year. Barney
