RE: Sending a TT back to the factory

There have been many posts here about folks taking their trailer back to the factory for repairs - usually because the dealer had exhausted all his resources and could not fix the problem or possibly because the problem was above the dealers capability. Sometimes it is because the owner is dissatisfied with the dealers service. Many different reasons but the bottom line is that most brands have a way to take a customers unit and fix it. They often will fix other items that the owner didn't even know were broken! In addition, some factories will pick up the unit and transfer it back to the factory and maybe deliver it back to the owner. I would imagine that would depend on the amount and reason for the work. Good luck.:) Barney

RE: 1999 Kustom Koach kw252 operators manual

We have a longtime member, Chris Bryant, now retired from his RV service business, who has generously provided a link to many manuals, both RV's themselves and appliances used in RV's, on his company website. You can check out the various categories on his site here. Barney

RE: Liquid rubber

Has anyone tried liquid rubber L R Yes! I did several years ago and posted about it here, with pictures. Make sure you read the whole thread because I can no longer recommend the stuff that I used in that thread. You will see in later posts why. In two weeks, I am having the whole rubber roof replaced at a cost of over $6500 which probably would not have happened had I not used the product that I did. I wish I had just used a simple paint like product as has been mentioned earlier in this thread. Barney

RE: giving it up

Terry, At 84 years old I feel your pain. A couple of years ago, maybe three, I did the same thing for the same reasons. The only difference being we still have our trailer and use it for our "summer place" where it sits hooked up in our sons family campground in the woods in the northern part of Michigan. We have full hookups and enjoy the whole family up there frequently. When we are done with the trailer, it will belong to my son and he can do with it as he wishes. It still looks almost new and has never leaked. We are putting a new roof on it at the end of this month as a preventative measure. This is a picture of it right after we replaced the original awning material last year. You can see the old one on the ground in front of the trailer. Best of luck to you in this new chapter of your life.:) https://i.imgur.com/s8jynzfl.jpg

RE: weight dist chain replacement

All you need do is tilt the hitch head forward towards the tow vehicle and that will lift the bars higher to begin with so you don't need as many chain lengths to lift them and/or will reduce the amount of lift with the same chain link used. You must not be transferring much, if any weight forward now if you are at the end of the chain. The Dual Cam requires some pressure on the cam/bar interface for the system to work correctly. I frankly have never heard of anyone running out of chain links in order to properly tune their hitch setup. Why do you think you have too much lift? Barney

RE: Bent WD snap up bracket on dual cam setup.

That exact thing has happened before and posted here on the forums. I have not taken the time to look it up but the take-away from the discussion is that Yes, the V formed by the intersection of the driveway and road PLUS the turn you were making put too much pressure on the snap up. You have a couple of choices to prevent it in the future. I would probably do both if the tongue weight is over 1000lbs. 1. Purchase the heavy duty brackets that have the reinforced top part. 2. Thru bolt those brackets to the frame. Reese has approved this for heavy tongue weight trailers. I would not worry about the dent in the frame. Barney

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

You won't here me bellyache about my APEX. It has done everything I bought it for, with minimal maint, as did my 2004 Pioneer. I bought them to camp in, to keep me dry, and to follow me around. and they both did it with no protest. OK, There's one vote for the "I'm 100% happy with the quality of what I bought" column . . . . . any others? I'm 100% satisfied with my 2004 Sunnybrook 30FKS travel trailer purchase. It was used extensively for about 15 or 16 years traveling all over and back and forth between either Florida and Michigan or Texas and Michigan each winter. It is still being used by us today for our "summer place" but is not traveling anymore. The trailer is willing but the old man ain't or can't!:E. Can't ask for anything better than that!:) Barney
