RE: Comfort Ride Slipper Spring system w/shocks

Slipper spring setups used to be more common, especially on lighter trailers, but went away when the centre equalizer system came on the scene. There's no problem with unlevel, or stiffness, as suggested above. The main issue in their demise was wear in a non-replaceable area, mainly the pad welded to the frame. Shackles and bolts became wear points, but are easy to swap out.

RE: My TT ain't so great for winter camping....

Checked into the Westerner for an overnight. We often use their services on our biannual snowbird migration so we can visit the middle kid and his family. Weather is looking to cooperate for a few more nights. Soon we'll be looking for AC, not heat. Agree with the Citation/Corsair recommendation. They're heavy, but worth it.

RE: Chains in BC

You only have to have chains available to you, not use them. Buy the cheapest, lightest set you can find, then pay attention to the forecast. AutoSocks are also acceptable, if you want to push your luck a bit.

RE: Can anyone in Alberta Help???

There's a few companies shuttling RVs, but the ones I've seen are operating out of larger population centres, like Vancouver or the GTA. Haven't seen any flying out of YYC. The price isn't cheap, either.

RE: Awning working backwards after fabric replacement

You wound the springs backwards.

RE: MIA...

OP is looking for the pull handle, not the outlet. Seen 2 drops before, with separate locations for the handles, too.

RE: Mobile RV repair in the Phoenix/Mesa area

We've used Red Mountain RV Repair, but he might be gone north for the summer. He goes up to Flagstaff to avoid the heat.

RE: Fittings for holding tank revision.

Talk to the guys at the welding shop, they can spin weld fittings in that will work with the ABS of the trailer.

RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

Wouldn't want to camp in a mobile home park. Extended stay parks use different rules than weekend parks.

RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

Pulls up fine on Android phone. The device determines the page layout, not something you need to set. Have fun.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

We'll keep an eye peeled as you go past Grande Prairie. Safe travels.

RE: What Did I Do to Break My Generators???

Pull out the spark plugs on both machines. You hydro-locked them with oil. Pull the recoil cord to get as much as possible out. Replace the plugs, start them up. Expect lots of smoke, as the oil burns off. Expect to replace the plugs with new ones, after the smoke quits.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Don't be in too big of a rush. It's -42* C an hour from Mile Zero, Alaska Highway, and most of Alberta is experiencing very similar temps. I'd expect cold well south of the border, so be ready for it.

RE: Citation Supreme Truck Camper

Citation's were heavy, comparatively, for the size, but they were well built. Keep on top of the seals around the windows and doors, the lights, and especially the roof hatches. Keep an eye on the roof, they tended to say a bit, over time.
