Magnet testing In this article, look at the ohms, you likely don't have a DC AMP meter. You can test at the trailer plug for a ballpark figure, just check from the brake pin to ground. Multiply the reading by four if you have four brakes. The result should be 3.0 to 3.8 ohms. If you are considerably out of tolerance, start disconnecting wires at the brakes and check. A brake magnet can go out like a light.

RE: Shower clog or something else?

Some RV's use a "Hepvo" or similar inline seal instead a traditional 'P' trap. The rubber "flutter valve" seal opens when there's sufficient flow through it, and it's normal to see some retained water in the drain. As the valve ages, it can get stiffer and retain more water than when new. Hepvo Waterless Valve Likely the problem. If you have room to replace it with a P trap, that would be good.

RE: Not RV, but we haven't had a good generator bashing lately.

Ethanol should only be for your daily driver! Ethanol should not exist for a motor fuel.

RE: Not RV, but we haven't had a good generator bashing lately.

Since you run the carb dry not much bad can happen. The exercising routine is way overrated.

Little Red Caps will help prevent drying of the caulk.

RE: Pet Peeves long road trip

Legally, you should hold a steady speed and let the merging vehicle pick a gap to take. Nothing worse than trying to slide in behind someone while merging and they hit the brakes blocking you. If they wind up running on the shoulder for a while because they weren't paying attention, that's their problem. Totally agree, I've had numbskulls dang near come to a stop doing that crazy maneuver.

RE: My dinette light fixture fell down

Can you rotate the fixture and drill new holes?

RE: Travel trailer warranties

That’s one of the reasons I bought a RV with a 2 year warranty. And it was probably over loaded to have a bent axle. Mine was bent when I got my new and empty trailer home, probably bent by the dealer. I played pretty much the same game as the OP with my useless dealer and warranty, then yanked out absolutely everything from the tires up to the frame and replaced with up sized or homemade parts. Warranties are simply a joke with the denials, waiting time and terrible workmanship.

RE: Axle and Hub Question

Better quality, but sadly made in China also. They moved from Ohio to China mid 05-06 I have USA Timken bearings, check Summit, Amazon and below.

RE: A very good reason Not to scrimp on surge protectors.

Stupid question, can I buy a 50a unit and use it with a 30a trailer? Longer term plans have us upgrading to larger 5th wheel Yes.

RE: Portable Jump Starter

I have one that is nine years old, it started my tractor this week. The battery in it is the size of one in a computer UPS. I charge it about twice a year.

RE: Axle and Hub Question

As for repacking the bearings myself, it sounds like a great skill to learn. I learned how to do that on bicycles last year when I rebuilt a classic Schwinn. I guess I better step up my game and do it on the camper, too. In my opinion, you have no other good choice but to do it yourself. Even if your next stop has a skilled and fair mechanic, what are you going to do when one of those cheap Chinese bearings ends your trip? With basic tools you can service a spindle roadside quickly. I learned the hard way about the junk bearings coming out of China, and replaced all with Timken.

RE: How do I know if my trailer coupler is adjusted correctly?

Put the ball in the coupler and adjust till there is little to no play. Steel on steel needs grease.

RE: Axle and Hub Question

That is NOT caused by heat, it is fretting corrosion . How much money can be made promoting YouTube videos?

RE: Axle and Hub Question

Not sure how to add images here. I just put up a temporary page with the pictures at: Hub Axle Pictures Absolutely normal, run from the crooks!

RE: Axle and Hub Question

Can you post the photo here? It is normal that dark marks appear on the spindle where the bearings sit. Unless there is an extreme amount there is no concern. The condition is called fretting corrosion and on a trailer is caused by that small amount of clearance between the bearing and the spindle plus no grease on the spindle at assembly. Here is a minor example. If you provide a photo, we may be able to save you all the expense. The time to service trailer bearings is the minute you bring it home. Inadequate grease and poor adjustment happens all too often.

RE: DEF how old is too old?

I would question the age of the DEF that is already in the truck, perhaps the DEF in the jug is better.
