RE: How many strokes??

The center hub on the ez lube hubs is normally dry initially so it takes A LOT OF GREASE the first time. Easily half a tube. You pump the grease in until you see clean fresh grease come out the end. I use the red grease to see this easier. The next time you'll use much less grease because the center of the hub is now full. There is no set number of pumps. Plenty of YouTube videos to show you how. Rotating the wheel while you're doing it is a must.

RE: Question on Hydraulic Fluid

Make sure all your hydraulics are retracted...slides in and leveling system is up. Then check level. Our Lippert system uses auto trans fluid. X2 Makes a big difference in the level in the reservoir.

RE: Max Air Vent Cover Maintenance

That's why I like the Maxx Air II that has the quick release pins so you can easily check the condition of the vent base caulk. The vent cover itself is never caulked as noted above.

RE: 1984 carriage brake magnets

You are much better off, replacing the entire brake assembly back plate. Some of the older axle manufacturers have been bought up or gone out of business making finding exact parts for that brake assembly difficult or impossible to find. New backplates gets you not only new magnets but shoes plus all the mechanicals and is fully assembled. Just remove 4 nuts holding the backplate to the axle and the old assembly falls off. You will need to get a left and right assembly, don't mix them up. This one in the pix is for 3,500 lb axles which use 10" drum 2.5" wide brake shoes. height=300 width=500 Found HERE for $130 for a pair (Left and Right) Back plate assemblies are fairly universal and fits quite a few different axle manufacturers (including old defunct axle manufacturers). Select via the size of the brake drum, typically 2,000 lb axles will have 7" drums, 3,500 lb axles will have 10" drums, 5,000 lb axles will have 12" drums.. Whatever you decide to do, do BOTH L and R sides at the same time, otherwise you will have uneven braking which will pull to one side. X2.

RE: WD/Sway Control

I use a Reese with dual antisway bars. Tracks straight and true. Also have Reese Dual-Cam. Works great! C.B. A third vote for Reese Dial Cam! That's another good choice

RE: WD/Sway Control

You might want to consider an Equalizer with 4 point sway control. Loved the one I had. X2. That would be my choice.

RE: Found It, What a joke. Buying in 2021 LOL. You can keep it.

That is what happens when supply is low and demand is up. No different than if you wanted to get top dollar if you sold your truck so why fault the dealership if they do the same? Agree 100 % Free enterprise at work. Free enterprise is what made this country great! !

RE: Capture plate?

No need for a capture plate as long as you visually verify your hitch is PROPERLY latched and there is no space between the pinbox plate and the hitch plate. To the original poster please disregard the quoted post. To Cummins12V98 - Giving bad advice is worse than giving no advice. You have no idea what a pullrite superglide hitch is or how it works. Without the capture plate the hitch would not operate properly and damage would occur. I stand corrected! "Capture plate" to me is the device that stops the RV from dropping if high hitched for example. I get you but Superglide is a different animal that requires that specific plate to rotate the head of the hitch. It's a great slider hitch but I went in a completely different direction with an Andersen. So glad I didn't go the slider route BTW

RE: Capture plate?

I am buying a 2007 weekend worrier superlite LS 2805. I am getting a superglide hitch. What capture plate do I need. Thanks Depends on your pin box. All brands use various pin boxes

RE: Help with choosing our 5th wheel (and truck)

I really really really like your budget. A world of options await you.
Ron3rd 07/06/21 04:44pm Fifth-Wheels

When I had the trailer tires replaced I had metal valve stems put on and then added 507 TPMS . I noticed on Thursday coming home the tires on the west side of the trailer were running 10 degrees hotter and 2 lbs. higher pressure. Is this normal that the sun side runs a little hotter? Something happened on the way home that was really strange. I have been towing campers since 1996 and have never had this experience. It was kind of weird and a little spooky, WE pulled in to a rest area on I43 and the truck/trailer side of the rest area was completely empty. I think there were 30 slots there and we were the only thing in the rest area for at least 1/2 hr. Perfectly normal. TST owner for over 10 years BTW

RE: Grand Design Quality

We purchased our GD 260RD in March, 2021 took delivery April, 2021 - went camping one time (June 11, 2021) came home & slide wouldn't go back out. Its been at the dealer since. Got parts then needed more parts. These parts come from various manufactures that GD works with. Everything is under warranty but the process to get "approval" is stupid. It's a brand new RV...just how long should approval take. Bottom line is this all this falls on GD and their quality control measures. A brand new RV should not be having these problems. Also if they had listened to the dealer in the first place and approved the parts the dealer said was needed, we wouldn't be waiting on more parts. I'm very disappointed with this RV. If I'm lucky enough to get it back for a planned trip to Maine I will be selling it as soon as I get home. Sorry to hear of your troubles but that's typical of INSERT BRAND NAME HERE. it's not like buying a Ford from a Ford dealer, or any other car brand for that matter where that's all they work on and either have the parts or can usually get them in a day. It's not uncommon to wait weeks or months for warranty work that is then done incorrectly.

RE: FOB keys and theft

Keep those in a faraday bag or case when not in use. New vehicles only need the key close to the car, then when FOB is close the door will open and the push-button start will crank the engine and unlock the wheel. Thieves can amplify your FOB signal (which always broadcast), and send it to your vehicle while you are away and just like that they are driving off. Or they can clone your FOB signal and duplicate it. Faraday bags will block the signal, and are around $10 on eBay. Good advice. Lots of YouTube videos on the topic

RE: Are you heading for Utah's National Parks?

Definitely suggest skipping Zion and going closer to winter. It's an urban nightmare: crowds, traffic, lines everywhere. There are so many alternate options vs the big names. I'd send everyone to Canyonlands too. I agree with you on Zion currently, but if you ever get the opportunity to explore Zion on an off month, it's the best park in Utah IMO.

RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

"It would appear folks don't buy Tundras for their latest technology or raw powertrain performance. So what keeps 'em competitive?" Rock solid reliability.

RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

Not a fan of the looks of the new one but I absolutely loved my 2007 Tundra 5.7 Never in the shop once for repairs though it had a few recalls. Sold it at 106,000 miles and 8 years later. Had it detailed and it looked like new. Would still have it but we bought a bigger trailer. Best truck I ever owned.

Saw that deal yesterday. Very tempting.

RE: Need a wiring diagram for 2005 coachman cross country SE

A good rv tech might be better than electrical engineer but as others have said we still don't know what your problem is

RE: battery questions and issues

Just my opinion but if the 2 batteries sat un-charged for 2 years they're probably dead for good
