RE: 2007 Fleetwood Mallard 20FKS specs?

Ther should be a sticker on the left front of the trailer with the GVWR, tire size air pressure etc. Use 12 to 15% of the trailer for an estimate of the loaded trailer hitch weight for travel trailers. Ken

RE: Hard sided campers under 1500lbs with 6' int ht spreadsheet.

I think you may be searching for a trailer made by UNobtainium. Ken

RE: Fridge beeping

A gas/Electric RV fridge has to have 120 VAC to operate from electric for the heater. If you do not have 120 VAC shore power, the fridge controls run from 12 VDC and the fridge from propane. Turn on the propane. Ken

RE: TT Wear on one tire..only took few short trips

A year ago, a couple in the park with a brand-new Solitude had bad tore wear from the trip to the dealer in Houston and 40 miles then to their site. After a trip to the dealer to check things and a new tire, they took a 300 mile trip and just about wore out the tire again. Back to the dealer and they had a trailer alignment shop check the trailer and the spring hangers on one axle were not put on right from Lippert. A trailer shop repaired the spring hangers and Lippert paid the bill and another new tire. Ken

Out of alignment or a loose wheel bearing. Ken

RE: Young Family with an unusual RV touring Australia

Can you even begin to phantom an American made travel trailer holding up to just a few miles of the trails they were on> Ken

RE: Black Ants in outdoor kitchen

I believe Ortho makes a spray called Home Defense. Might check the label. Have you tried the home remedy from borax and sugar as a paste, placed on paper squares. Ken

RE: Black Ants in outdoor kitchen

You may need to treat the area around the RV with a product like Spectracide (SP). If you can see mounds outside, use Orthene.

RE: Tires- LT or ST

My tires are also 225/75R15. A scan of Discount Tire site doesn't give me any LT options. Guess that saves me from having to decide.... Lots of folks decide to ditch the 15" wheels and put on a set of 16" wheels for a better tire selection. Make sure you have sufficient clearance for any larger or taller tires/wheels. Ken

RE: Tires- LT or ST

Get the best tire you can for the RV and tow vehicle. Above all, do not go with a cheap Chinese tire. Use a good quality TPMS and weigh the loaded trailer to ensure you are not overloaded and stay within the speed rating for your tires. Every time we go out we have people blow past us at 75 mph plus and from the cheap trailer, I am sure they are running the original cheap Chines tires with a 65 mph speed rating. Ken

RE: Time to Part with Loved Travel Trailer

We have sold two trailers through PPL Motorhomes consignments in Houston. We were pleased with both sales. We did not have to deal with the scammers and lookie-lous. They handled the whole deal with o one time clean-up fee and kept the trailer clean. We set a minimum acceptable price and they handle the deal from there. Once they had a buyer we were notified, and the new buyer had the option of taking it as is or paying for an inspection. Any shortcomings were reported, and you negotiate any repairs. After the trailer was delivered it was a few days later we had the money deposited to our account or could opt for a paper check. Ken

RE: Is ForestRiver nuts or what? (Single axel Vibe)

How do they get away with building like this. Because people keep buying the same old garbage. Are they even using any kind of hitch with sway control? But most likely, they need to add tongue weight. Ken

RE: Strong urine smell in bathroom

Thank you for advising the outcome. So many never report back how an issue was resolved. Ken

RE: 2022 dodge ram sway issues

That is way too much cart for that little horse. Two things that will help is to get rid of the soft side wall truck tires and get load range E, 10 ply tires and some heavy duty shocks. Another issue is the soft coil spring rear suspension on the newer Ram 1500 trucks. The trucks are designed as grocery and mulch haulers. Ken

RE: AC leaking when running combined with heavy rain

Don't over tighten the 4 bolts as this will crush the gasket. Tighten no moe than one fill turn on each. If this does not stop the leaking, you will need to remove the a/C unit and replace the gasket. DO NOT caulk the gasket. The gasket should not be tighten more than what it takes to compress the gasket by 1/2. Tighten all 4 bolts equally. Ken

RE: Add washer and dryer

For that small of a RV, I would highly recommend a combo washer and drier like the Splindide 2100XC. Smaller and less weight. A few of the larger RVs can be converted so that a 240-volt drier can be used. More than likely your HR is 30 amp, so you are stuck using 120-volt appliances. Does your TT have water and drain connections for a washer/drier is a starting point. If not, how will you get water, power and drain connection to the location? Another point is you want an outside vented drier, so it will need to have an access to an outside wall for the vent. Ken

RE: Schwintek slide out system failure - brand new TT

The Schwintek systems seem to do pretty well on the smaller slide boxes. Thet are a disaster on the larger and heavier slid boxes. I had the SWINEtek system on one slide that was a large heavy bedroom slide on our HitchHiker Champagne. It was the only thing that really gave us much trouble in 10 years. Tracks repair and replaced twice, motors once. Best advice is to just stay away from them. Ken

RE: Schwintek slide out system failure - brand new TT

A company is making a replacement for the Schwintek. Look up Vroom side outs. It was custom engineered for the company owner and now he is building the replacement. They are booked months out and the price is not cheap. But it is a well designed system. Ken

RE: Are some kinds of TVs better for RV life

For an RV that is used part time, I use the cheapest TV out there. Ken

RE: rookie mistake

On the various RVs we have owned, I have found no constant color coding, other than green for a ground wire. Sometimes black is hot on 12 vdc and other times black is negative. I ALWAYS check the wiring with a voltmeter Or trace the wire back to the source. Better safe than sorry. Ken
