RE: Securing black water tank

Correct, should have added a pic, but the trailer isn't close to me, and it is hard to get under with all this rain. Working in her area this coming week so will grab a pic

Securing black water tank

My daughter has a 2007 Arctic Fox she bought recently. The corner of the black water tank flange is cracked. Would like to know best way to make sure tank is secure. We haven't taken off all the covering yet.

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

And back on topic, to the OP, yes that would be a good cordless impact wrench for changing tires. Personally I wouldn’t invest in the combo with the ratchet. I’ve never found much use for my air ratchets. It’s either by hand or with a small hex drive impact driver. Air or electric ratchets are well suited for production work like engine rebuilding and handy in tight areas where you can’t get much of a turn on a ratchet. A better combo would be a 1/2” impact and impact driver, or a cordless drill if you don’t have a good one. I have had some recent situations where my old variable speed cordless couldn't get in. If I had a low profile ratchet driver, woulda been great.

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

If the issue is getting older then ditch the breaker bar idea. Break them loose and then ratchet them off by hand? Screw that. Get an electric impact. Cheap or expensive. Dont have to trust their claimed torque rating but got to think its ballpark. Good enough to compare models. You are listening!!!

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

Do you have an air compressor? We have a small portable unit and in a pinch, I could power it with the generator. A $30 pnuematic impact wrench should do the trick. I do have a pneumatic wrench at home, but it requires a strong rate of flow to work.

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

That being said, my tool of choice for my motorhome (which uses 140 ft-lb lug nuts) is one of the inexpensive 25" Harbor Freight breaker bars with the appropriate socket and, for the dually rear wheels, a 1/2" socket extension. I've never had any trouble breaking them loose with that, and it's a lot cheaper than an impact wrench and never needs recharging. Exactly what I went out and purchased after that incident. Problem is I am getting older and not as coordinated!!!

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

I torque check them at home, but did not have the physical ability to break them loose with hand tools on the roadside.

Tire/wheel change on the road

Acme Tools, has this M-18 FUEL™ & M12 FUEL™ Mid-Torque & Ratchet Combo Kit for $379. Seems like a really good price, question is would this impact driver be a good choice to carry for my truck (3500) and travel trailer. Last time I had a flat I couldn’t break the lug nuts loose.

RE: Shout out to Enumclaw Dodge....for the Wet Side Mopar owners

Thanks for sharing. I always went to Tom Matson, used to know many of the guys in back. Don't know anyone now that is owned by Bub Clary.

Easiest way to measure battery level of charge?

RE: How do you know how much you can TRULY pull?

Trailer Life tow ratings, pretty good place to start.

RE: Teaching to tow?

Gotta jump in, toy hauler axles are set farther back, so they don't corner or track the same as a regular trailer. Everything you learned towing regular trailers has to be adjusted. I actually came here because I wanted tips for teaching my daughter to tow. Her new to her trailer arrives here June 30th. Thanks to all that have chimed in, I need all the help I can get.

RE: Recommendations for Moab campground

We stayed in Green River at the KOA, used that as a base for our trip, was a ways out, but a bunch less $$$.

RE: Trailer Reverse Lights

Sounds like a nice plan, I like it.
