RE: E-bike transportation

I haul them on rack attached to my 2 inch receiver on my rzr. Just like a car except it rides in my toy hauler.

RE: trailer brake issue

This was happening to me and I simply cleaned and re-bent the contacts from trailer to truck connection and problem fixed

RE: Fifth wheel Hitch troubleshooting

Look in the owners manual for the hitch. All hitches do require periodic cleaning and maintenance. Ken Wrong - not my Andersen. You mean it never requires any cleaning or checking for tightness and mounting....Good Luck. Ken Yep that's what I mean - if you have not owned one you would not understand.

RE: Trailer brake warning on RAM

Fixed, I read the other thread on the subject and followed the advice and pinched the contact on the trailer cord that plugs into the truck and that fixed it. Nice to have it fixed I was in Mexico and had a long drive home.

RE: Trailer brake warning on RAM

Didn't use the grease but sprayed with cleaner. Remember a 2nd truck showed same problem.

RE: Trailer brake warning on RAM

All exposed wires are good - its the buried ones that suck.

Trailer brake warning on RAM

I have a 2017 3500 and I get a check trailer brake warning when hooked up to my 5th wheel. I put another truck on the trailer and got the same warning. So the problem is in the trailer. How does the truck know that the connection is not good? I thought the wire from the truck was an out put voltage. The lights (brake turn signal) on the trailer work fine.

RE: SRW vs DRW

If you have more contact surface, you'll have more friction/braking. That's why race cars have very wide tires: bigger tires=better grip. Yep!! I can tell you paid attention in your HS physics class. Consider a train - very small contact surface and pulling more than any RV. It is psi on the contact patch - the larger the patch the less PSI if the weight is the same.Now if that were true, race cars and dragsters would have very skinny tires. But they don't, why do you suppose that is? Don't know. But when trying for traction off road a skinny tire is better in many situations. If one wants to float as opposed to digging in then wide tires are better. If one wants to dig down to traction the thin tire is better.

Were the two trucks same brand and year?

RE: SRW vs DRW

"2018 montana 305RL - 14,270LBS loaded weight, 2395lbs pin weight 19FT crestliner sportfish - 3800LBS loaded weight/trailer, 300LBS tounge weight. on a tandem axle trailer, 23FT overall length Don't believe the RV pin weight, is this a fact or a guess??? Boat trailer is light on the pin. That said if you are at or under your RAWR let er rip!!! Also truck stops truck, RV stops RV and Boat trailer stops Boat trailer. If it does not have brakes it sure should! Hey there, those stats on the camper are pulled directly from the placard on the camper itself so i imagine they have to be close NO they don't!!! Don't think I have ever seen a published "loaded" pin weight. 20% generally is a minimum and many times 25% loaded pin. I think that having a rzr loaded (behind the axle) into my tow hauler lightens my pin weight - should be the same for the hitch weight of a boat.

RE: SRW vs DRW

Lantley Sorry buddy - seat of pants is way too subjective. I prefer the physics lesson.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

I get the pee thing but the larger tanks give you options of driving past the little jammed up small gas stations and finding cheaper gas and easier access. The larger tank is the best mod I've made to my truck. In the back country in the intermountain west service stations can be few and far between - nice to have the options to drive on.

RE: Help Ram 2500 6.4 gas vs diesel

RE: Where's a few of your favorite destinations to go?

Kanab Utah if you like ATV/UTV riding. Stunning views and endless trails. Hanksville Utah is a close 2nd.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

I travel extensively in Az Wy and Utah and it's mostly Rams and Fords in the areas I visit. Chebbys are an east coast thing??

RE: Standard hitch vs. gooseneck hitch

The Label on my Andersen hitch says: "This product DOES NOT void any trailer manufactures warranty" Imagine the lawsuits if untrue.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

Andersen hitch - 35 pounds. Easy peasy. Over 25000 miles on mine and take in and while camping. Thousands sold and very happy customers. Problem is it could void the Lippert frame warranty. Still investigating on that one. It does NOT void the warranty! Quit spreading lies.
