RE: Rasor OHV trip.

Looks like a good day off road, reminds me of my ATV days.

RE: Trailer hitch

While I can appreciate your issue (I have had it happen to me working at an RV dealer switching from towable to MH) I would think making the tow vehicle and trailer non-flexible is going to put loads in places not intended for loads. I would also think your turning radius is going to be bigger, as you wont be able to "follow" the trailer around the curves.

RE: Best *mid priced* Kinetic Recovery Rope?

Look up Freedom ropes, they are based out of Pismo beach, and their ropes are used to pull some big stuff out and about down there. The Raptor crowd I ran with all used them.

RE: Small trailer on F350 flatbed

Cant see why it wouldn't be legal, assuming you don't exceeded cargo capacity of the truck or some local or state law.

RE: Need exterior trim piece

Try this outfit: Most moldings / trim are fairly generic, in that most mfgs don't make their own trim pieces.

RE: Purchasing in a 55+ Community - AZ

Aside from the titling issues, take a long hard look at the financial report for the Association- make darn sure the reserves are fully funded, you don't want to buy a space, then get hit with a big assessment to fix the roads or other capital improvement the Association owns.

RE: Question on inner bearing grease seals

Yes the better seals are worth it. As mentioned before they are better able to handle the pressure and vacuum that develops in the hub cavity due to heat cooling cycles. Really, it it worth $ 36.00 to have one of those $3.00 seals fail while on the road?

RE: assist for toy hauler rear door

I had a race car trailer with a heavy door. I used a winch like the one Dirtclods posted the link for to raise and lower the door. Wasn't fast, but saved my back. Installing the winch took a bit of work, so unless you have some advanced skills you may have to visit a well equipped RV or HD trailer repair shop to install it.

RE: Suspension Enhancements for Single Axle Trailer

Try this: Dexter 5,500-7,000 torflex axles What exactly are you trying to "fix" with the torsion axle? As already suggested, adding shocks goes a long way towards calming things down suspension wise.

RE: Generator theft.

The dealership I worked for had a couple of generators stolen from coaches out front. So, yes, it happens. Also, RV storage facilities are prime ground for thieves, I once wrote over 20 estimates for theft damage at a facility that got hit.

RE: Wish us luck, pray for the marriage

After years away from the RV lifestyle, we bought a 20' TT, after a few short trips, we spent two and a half weeks touring New Mexico. Had a great time. Got us back into RVing, To the tune of a 35' fiver. Waiting for the wife to retire then really start traveling. So can happen.

RE: Propane Question

91,000 BTU per gallon of propane X 4.2 GA = 382,200 BTU / 20,000 BTU per hour= 19.11 hours

RE: Royal Canin SO Urinary food-shiny?

Had a similar conversation with my vet, and he said pretty much what dturm said. Only in my vets case the owner's dogs wouldn't eat the food, so he took it back and he returned it to the manufacturer.

RE: Do your dogs/cats watch TV

Only had one of our herd watch TV. It was a cat, and all she was interested in was other cats, big or small didn't matter to her. Once that program or story ended, she left.

RE: Magnetek 3230 power converter problem

Some older converters had two outputs from the converter, one filtered and one unfiltered. My guess is that the filtered side has failed. Possible capacitor. My thoughts as well.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

All Discount does is tires, and IMHO they do it well. This caliper replacement policy is undoubtedly lawyer driven, and it lessens the need to have employees who can make an educated decision.

RE: F150 Tire time

I like Michelins (just put a set on my F250), but I had Goodyear Wranglers on my F150. Worked great in the snow. If the Michelins lasted 50K and they worked, why not go back to Michelins?

RE: RULER reading???

Assuming the tape measure is "normal", as in each line represents 1 16th. 5/8= 10/16 +2/16 (the two lines referenced) = 12/16 AKA 3/4"

RE: Nevada 447

Be very aware of your speed when traveling on reservation land. Tribal police have and use radar to write tickets.

RE: Storage Compartment Theft

While you may think I am being negative or unhelpful, one cannot reasonably expect to deter a determined thief with any sort of standard RV doors/ locks. While this time it might have been "fairly easily thwarted" homeless, wait until some hardcore tweekers show up. Based my experience, (I wrote 20+ estimates at one storage location) thieves talk, and once a storage lot is found that has weak security it gets hit again.
