RE: *NEWB ALERT* question about TT up keep

I really need to try that out. I have some pieces of 2x6 that would work in my garage. But this cone was gifted to us and seemed like it made perfect sense , though some of the stuff they sell you is total BS.

RE: *NEWB ALERT* question about TT up keep

Anyone have exp with the cones that the electric tongue jacks foot sits on? I have a red one that was gifted to me. I don't sit the jacks foot on the group it is always on this cone, I am thinking maybe this could adding to the problem and maybe I should try getting a metal foot to attach to the jack without using the red cone. red trailer pad

RE: *NEWB ALERT* question about TT up keep

Okay, you gotta show me a pic or a link to this 2x4 thing.. I've been camping a long time with TT's and have no idea what you are talking about?? Eye let bolts, 36" long boards, two tie downs to act as a stabilizer?? No clue. I have been using the usual 4 corner BAL scissor jacks forever and I have found that if you crank up the rear ones more than the front ones, it takes a lot of the bounce out.. The tongue jack needs to still take a good amount of the front weight at least in my experience.. Your mileage may vary of course.. Everyone has their own methods to control stabilizer bounce.. Just gotta find what works for you and go from there.. 36" 2x4's is new to me! :) Mitch Here is the 2x4 idea for stabilization

RE: *NEWB ALERT* question about TT up keep

Thank you for the response afidel, I do at the moment use 4 2x4 cut to 36' length, couple eye let bolts and two tie downs to act as a stabilizer. It has been ok on a few sites but it does not help with the front to back sway. Maybe I'll check out the BAL lock you mentioned. Thanks!

RE: *NEWB ALERT* question about TT up keep

wow thank you all for the fast responses that is great! I haven't had many issues with this TT besides the black plastic stripping on the outside that covers the screws. But for the lights its just for my little kids can see easily at night before we wrap up for the night, nothing crazy. We don't boondock at all bc we are not equiped to do that yet. No generator or solar. Thank you again for the excellent advice!

*NEWB ALERT* question about TT up keep

Hi All! I am new haven't posted much here. Forgive me if its in the wrong section. I have owned a TT for 2 years as of this month. And I have a few up keep type questions : - My caulking is brownish in color. Is there a way to brighten it up or do I need to replace it? When should that be done ? - Propane - Sometimes it takes a while for my propane to start working for the fridge and gas burners. I have to go out and fiddle with it like swapping tanks or messing with the regulator before I start noticing it working. Not sure if this could be a regulator issue or if its common? - Stabilizer - I've done the trick to use 2x4's to help with the swaying while walking in the cabin. I have two kids so I constantly have to tighten the stabilizer up. Any idea how to tighten that or if adding more stabilizer would help? I have the manual type stabilizer. - Lights - is there a recommended way to add more lights around the base or bottom of the rig to light up. Any ideas or has anyone done that before could they share ? Many thanks for you all taking the time to read and help a newer guy out.
