RE: Storing My Diesel Truck Over Winter Advice

Worry less about the battwries and more about internal engine rust from condensation. Lost a 350 chevy that way once. Crank bearings rusted on it and spun one.

RE: New 2024 Chevy HD and Increased Dmax Power

All the new pickups are ugly as dog **** folks. And lets be honest, their isn't a tinkers difference between em on performance or reliability anymore.

RE: Time for new tires already?

The only tires that ever impressed me over the years were Goodyear Workhorse tires, they were a bit noisy but they wore like iron on my 1985 k3500. Currently we're running Cooper AT's and they aren't that great. I've also had good wear out of Uniroyal tires on half tons though.

RE: Do Some Travel Trailers Have Levelling Jacks?

I've only ever seen stabilzer jacks on trailers. I've often questioned a why motorhome jacks are used to lift the vehicle off the ground for leveling. Still, built in jacks for leveling that are capable of lifting would be handy for flat tires but I doubt that occurs often enough to be a real advantage .

RE: Recommendations? Good value inexpensive travel trailers.

A few years ago we bought a new Puma trailer. At $26k it was total garbage. We traded it in less than a year later on a Sabre that was twice the $. Fortunately the Sabre was excellent quality. We sold that Sabre for a smaller older R Vision and although the R Vision is well put together for a lightweight trailer , there is no comparison in quality to the much heavier and more expensive Sabre. It seems that in the RV world you do tend to get what you pay for.

RE: For your consideration, the Chinese Airstream.

Even at that price, I still can't understand why anyone would want to camp in a tin can.

RE: Steps

I took a look at those Glowsteps. The issue with my trailer is that it has pre-set studs for the steps to go on and the placement does not match any other steps ive looked at. In fact, the steps that are on the unit have had additional tabs welded on to them to match the existing studs. Moving the studs isn't an option as i dont want to tear up the floor. Note: trailer is a 2007 R Vision 7200 ultra light ( double step currently installed but sits low enough that a single would work) So I guess my options are to buy new steps and have tabs welded to them but I definitely dont want to do that as the studs are less than 100% or install the folding steps. I thought this option would be easier so long as there isnt a clearance issue with the door.

Who here has removed their old steps and installed a new set of the Lippert one piece style folding stairs? Modification to the door sill plate looks necessary, anything else you ran into?

RE: The Sewer Valve

Update: What pain in the rear! Ive finally decided to silicone the gaskets into the valve to try to get the valve in without unseating the gaskets. Just no room between the flanges to work with.

RE: The Sewer Valve

Update: Well, all for nothing. The valve was ok. I'll change it anyway now, gonna add a tank flusher too while it's apart. Must have just been plugged I guess.

RE: The Sewer Valve

Update: Yup, local contractor that rents out portable outhouses has a truck they are going to send out in a couple of days. So when anyone else runs into this problem, keep that in mind.

RE: The Sewer Valve

I can try that once i get the end cut off. Unless i can get it pumped out first then it would be easy after that.

RE: The Sewer Valve

I thought about cutting away the outer part to get at the valve but I don't really want to be doing it in the parking lot at the local dump station. They get pretty upset over any spillage , understandably.

RE: Going Back to a Travel Trailer

You won't even need an equalizer with that 3/4 ton pickup I'd bet.

RE: The Sewer Valve

My plan is to hopefully have the local septic truck come to the partially disambled trailer and put a 2 inch hose down the toilet and suck it out so I can replace the valve. Going to add a black tank flush kit while its apart. Thats the "plan" anyway.

RE: The Sewer Valve

Yea, I took the covering off underneath. I can actuate the control rod but it must be detatchwd from the gate. (Cable remote type valve)

The Sewer Valve

Well, one of the disadvantages of a hidden sewer valve is having to replace said valve. So much fun. Oh did I mention that the tank is full and the valve is broken internally in the closed position? Good times...

RE: Shopping for a used TT. Experiences and Opinions

We just did this. Had a 40 foot 5th wheel that we bought new in 2014. Sold it for KBB full market value. Found the perfect little trailer on Craigslist. You have great buying power when you have cash. We bought a 2004 R Vision and really like it alot. Good build quality and super lightweight.

Peach cobbler

Not sure if everyone here has done it, but Dutch Oven peach cobbler rocks. Easy to make, foil in the dutch oven, dump in a big can or two of peaches and the juice, dump in two white cake mixes, plop a few good size squares of butter on top (do not stir) and set the dutch oven over the heat. Pile the hot coals on top of it. Play a game of horseshoes and check it, if its bubbling and the top is browned then drop some in a bowl with ice cream and enjoy.
