RE: ~11K difference between same trailers...

Find out what the MSRP is and start the negotiations at 35% off. Most dealers are at 30% off. However right now with a very low supply of RV's everywhere, be prepared to pay more than that 30% off. That 30% off is only valid for RV's not TT's you will never get 30% off a TT unless its a year or two old. Only good on RV's, whats the TT then a tiny house?

RE: Covid 19 warning

The US Population is 330,000,000 and in 5 months the number of deaths was 130,000. The number of deaths from COVID as a percent of the population is 0.03939 %. Compared to the number of cancer cases diagnosed in 2019 (1,762.450...) and 607,000 deaths that percentage of death is 0.184%. A very well orchestrated plan, or an unimaginable set of events that just fell into place ... with the United States front and center ? Scare people with a virus, force them to wear masks and place them in quarantine. Count the number of dead every second of every day, in every News Headline. By the way, ninety-nine and eight-tenths of the people who get the virus, recover. About one to two tenths of one percent who get the virus, die. Most all of them have other medical problems. Did you catch that ? Less than 1/2 of a percent die. Closed businesses = 35,000,000+ instantly unemployed. Remove entertainment and prohibit Recreation; Closing parks, gyms, bars, restaurants, sports. No dating. No touching. Isolate people. Dehumanize them. Close Temples and Churches, prohibit worship. Create a vacuum and let depression, anxiety, hopelessness and desperation set in.

RE: sat dish

The Dish Playmaker offered by Dish, no longer need to be pointed north. The Tailgater has conflicting instructions about positioning north. The Winegard App will not run on my iPhone and has poor reviews. I use SatFinder Lite and it works fine. Pretty darn clear to me: Set up your Tailgater, Pathway, or Playmaker. Take the guesswork out of setting up your DISH portable antenna. Place your portable antenna outside on flat, level ground. Make sure it has a clear line of sight of the southern sky and ensure the coax ports point north. The Android phone app works excellent for OTA & Sat. It works with all sat systems and in AR view I can look at the sky with the phone & see the sats. If my phone sees them so will my antenna & I know exactly where to place it if I'm in trees. Have no idea how the Apple app works as I wouldn't purchase an over priced propitiatory anything, but that's just me. Don't have a lot of experience setting up being 3/4 time and 10-12K a year in my RV, experience Vs reading some article. On the Dish website there are two different sets of instructions for the Tailgator, one mentions the north and the other does not. My Playmaker has no such requirement. The reviews on the Winegard app mentions the exact problem I am having. The Apple app should work exactly the same as the one for cheap phones, but it crashes. The SatFinder app works well. Maybe you need a cheap Android works well with the Winegaurd app, no crashes. Apple is like driving a Lincoln truck, flashy but not much use working.

RE: Urgent need help

What should I do here? I bought a 2020 Starcraft Telluride 3 weeks ago. We’ve been in the road with it for the last week no problems. Well today we were sitting in the trailer and heard extremely loud pop! We went outside to inspect and found nothing. 30 minutes later we get an louder pop and crash noise. This time when went outside we found the fresh water tank on the ground!!!!! How and the hell does the fresh water tank just fall out of the trailer? What should I do? The closest Starcraft dealers is 100 miles and they want $2800 to load it and tow it? Should I just cut the tank out and screw the under belly up or have it towed to the dealer? ?? If you have GS Road Side Assitance plan, call them and have tow your trailer on a flat bed trailer to the dealer. If not then buy the GSRSA plan today. Bad advise way too many complaints on GS non service road side. Might try Coach net, costs a bit more but they respond. 6 years plus, bought a new 5W had a major truck break down. Called Coach net and found I had forgot to change the 5W info. Their response give us the info on the new one and we will have someone en route. I have no doubt GS would have been sorry but your not covered, anything to not go. BTW the entire bill was $900+, please sign the invoice, thank you and gone.

RE: Worn inside Tires

Might check wheel bearing and see if they are loose.

RE: travel trailer towing difficulty

The shorter they are the harder to back. You might need anti sway to keep the TT straight behind you, you have enough truck for the load.

RE: Why remove dinette booth and replace with table and chairs

Chairs are way more comfortable, move them where your comfortable. Table collapsed takes less room, add the leaf for added seating and get out the folding chairs from under the bed. https://i.imgur.com/2zUuyjsl.jpg

RE: sat dish

Dish portable auto aims, point the handle to the North. When in a treed area I use the phone app from Winegard: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.winegard.finder&hl=en_US

RE: Just about dropped it!

I do have a B&W and I agree it is a great hitch. The handle does not always want to stay open when un-hitching though which is why I had pinned it in the open position...usually not necessary. I have said MANY TIMES to never leave the handle pinned open!!!!! I use a padlock to lock my handle and on the rare occasion use it to pin the handle open. Seems easier to remember the lock is being used. Out immediately, pull forward and get it, before doing anything.

RE: Trailer length - does that influence spot availability?

I'm in 35ft and have no problem finding sites. There are a small number that are restricted to 24ft or less.

RE: Just about dropped it!

Never move forward without landing gear down, hope you learned from the almost. That B&W is the best made, wish I had switched years before I did.

RE: How much weight is too much?

there is one answer to the original question; only he can decide how much is too much over, depending on driving experience, vehicle condition, RV condition, and how much over weight. Lot of difference between 200lbs & 2000lbs

RE: Roadside Food stops?

Most truck stops will have some type food, the drivers need to eat, and there would be parking while you do.

RE: Checking on Wheel Bearing Heat

Commercial drivers at thought to hold you hand at the hub and if you can touch them your good to go. Those guys drive 10-12 thousand miles a MONTH so if it's OK for them why all the heat guns stuff? Most RVs are weekenders and a couple weeks vacation way less than a week on a commercial truck. I set up a system for a local DOT that "looked" at the temperature of truck wheel hubs as they went through the weigh station. Any guess on how many had no heat on them at all? Probably not much of an issue on an RV, but many truckers have failed trailer brakes where one hub or two have no heat on them at all. Looking for heat is a good way to find overheated but also failed and no heat. By the way, the truck drivers were very happy to get pulled over for failing trailer brakes. They didn't want to go down the road with brake issues. Often they don't own the trailer. The reason the DOT started the program was because lots of truck drivers rely on their trailer brakes to slow them down, taking stress off the truck brakes. Technology has really advanced, was that the Fife scale? I was O/O leased to a large company so watched equipment closely as time is money. Company drivers, well that's another story. But we digress PM on this, been off the road a few years.

RE: Simple extension cord

Or, pull the cover off the fridge outside door, unplug the fridge from the wall outlet and plug in your fridge to the extension cord. You will only have power to the fridge, but that is all you are wanting while you stay inside a house... Simplest answer with no chance of damage to other electronics. (I do have all that adapters 50-15 and did run just the fridge full time until I did the 30amp to the carport)
