RE: freezer have ice flakes

To help a gasket reseat, you can take a hair drier to it. Get it warm enough to pluu out a bit and let it cool before closing the door. Often, this will help the gasket realign and seat. Ken

RE: it the trailer or the truck?

Have you weighed the rig and checked you pin weight and your trucks GAWR and GVWR? Either light on the pin or too heavy for the truck can often be a problem.

RE: Dutchmen Atlas or Keystone Cougar

Thor Dutchman or Keystone. Neither one has a good reputation for customer relations or service. If you go with one of these, you need to have an extremely good dealer. I would look at Vanleigh, grand Design or Arctic Fox. Ken

RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

No safety chains, yep that is wrong. Wonder if they have trailer brakes? Ken

RE: Questions about pulling a fifth-wheel with a half ton TV

First, I don't like short bed trucks for pulling a 5er. Next with a 1/2 ton truck, you need to make sure the loaded pin weight of the trailer, plus other cargo in the truck does not exceed the trucks payload capacity. Ken

RE: What happened to all the posts

Another reason for a downturn. The ones that have been on here for a while, simply get tired of the same questions year after year. The new folks think they are the first to ask a particular question and never think to use the search function. I know that I am guilty of scanning over the new post and don't bother to answer a lot of the post, especially if it has already been answered by several people. Another issue is the 3 month new RVers that answer questions as if they are the new self proclaimed expert. Ken

RE: What happened to all the posts

I think a lot of folks are migrating over to group or pages on FaceBook and Instagram. Ken I know I'm migrating to message boards that actually work. The number of error messages and general problems here is ridiculous. For example? Lyle Look at 5th Wheels, all the various manufacturers group... Ken

RE: Missing bed rail nuts

Part of the yearly check of items is all the bolts on the 5er hitch and rail mounts. Additionally, you need to check all of the plumbing connections in the trailer, then all of the electrical connections. Running down the road, you are subjecting the RV to a Category 1 hurricane and an earthquake all at the same time, so things shake loose. Ken

RE: New Truck and 5th wheel

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

We lived in NE Oklahoma for several years and I always used air to clear the lines and then put antifreeze in the P-traps. Never had an issue. Ken

RE: Lippert 6 point hydraulic landing gear.

Read the manual and manually level the rig using a 4 foot long carpenters level. Then reset the level point. Ken

RE: Looking to upgrade to a fifth wheel.

The limiting weight on your 2500 is the pin weight of the trailer and the trucks GVWR and GAWR for the rear axle. A typical 5er when loaded has a pin weight around 20% of the trailers GVWR. Weigh your truck loaded for travel with passengers, cargo, hitch and fuel. now you have a baseline for selecting a trailer that will not over load the trucks ratings. Adding air bags and help springs does nothing toward increasing the trucks ratings. Ken

RE: 2007 Holiday Rambler Alumascape 32SKT

The HR series generally had a good reputation. However, it was not considered a 4-season trailer. As for value look at the low retail price, no options added and then deduct for the damage. make sure the tires are less than 5 years old by the date code. Ken

RE: Ice cream?

The coldest spot in most RV fridge is the back lower left hand corner. Keep the carton shoved back in that corner. Ken

RE: Towing speed

I stay in the right hand lane and run 65 MPH. But drive no faster than what you are comfortable with. Ken

RE: Crash in Australia (tongue weight). Video.

Prime example of small tow vehicle and improper set up as weight well as speed. I guess Australia also has RV sales people that say....Your vehicle will tow it like it was not even back there. Ken
