RE: tow dolly brakes

Thing about some surge brake setups. You can't back up to well. some come with a pin to install to keep the brakes from coming on when backing. Other wise the tongue can compress and activate the surge brakes.

RE: [SOLVED] Buy if slide out is sluggish?

Lots of people talking about the battery. So the question is. Was it plugged into shore power? If it was. Then the battery is not the problem. It will work with a dead battery, or no battery if plugged to shore power.

RE: peculiar brake situation with Prodigy P3

Ok, thanks, I guess the P3's reading of 5.6A tells me it is in range overall, right? Both magnets are actuating (it's a single axle). I checked with a compass, for what that's worth. If 2.3 ohms is excessive, that seems to indicate that the shop messed something up. But since the brakes work, does it matter? Maybe I should just ignore the warning message. However, if 2.3 ohms is an acceptable readout, then I'd be inclined to think maybe the controller is bad. I'm thinking it does not show a fault while sitting still, is because the controler is not doing any thing. Why? Because the P3 is a enertia based controler. When sitting still it is waiting for a signal. Pressing the brake pedal while sitting still will not send a current to the trailer. Activating the lever will. But only the amount of current you have dialed into the controler. and since it worked as advertised before they worked on it. I would say something did not get hooked back up correctly.

RE: Travel trailer battery not charging

The cheap red key type of disconnect switches can fail, so check voltage on both sides of the switch. Yes they fail, and even when they seem to work. sometimes they aren't making solid contact, and the battery won't charge.

RE: Portable track vehicle for backing trailers uo

I'll just use my truck. I can put it any where I want it with my truck. You should see how I have to park it at home. I have to back out of the road, between 2 trees, then turn it go go down beside the house, then turn it to go in thru the gate, then turn it the other way to back it under the camper port. Like I said. I can put it any where I want it. But then I started backing trailers at a young age. My first real job was backing new boats into the warehouse, and turning them to park side, by side once inside. But as self proclaimed awesome of a trailer backer you are, you can’t get a trailer in where the truck and trailer won’t fit. Like our old house with a side loader garage. Not a chance of getting the boat in the garage with the truck. But with our CJ 5 with a front hitch, could jack knife it right in and back out again. come and try my parking spot, and then we will talk. and yeah. I'm pretty awesome at backing. Living in town with the houses pretty close together, and the backyard being the only place I can keep it. I have to be. I have to make 3 90 degree lefts, and a 90 degree right to get it under the camper port. Also having learned backing boats worth tens of thousands into a ware house, and parking them side by side. Kind of gave me incentive. they didn't let just any one do it. But then I've had 50 years of practice. Thing is. every one has different talents. One of mine is driving. I was taught by the best. I know there are lots of people on here that are much better at lots of things than me.

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

For what it's worth, I've been happy with my two Fun Finder/Cruiser RV trailers. They are not perfect, but they have been rugged and reliable. And they are much less expensive than some other brands. Dollar for dollar, I am satisfied. But they don't look as great as an Airstream. ;) But I bet they have more room in them. airstreams are pretty cramped.

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

IMO, there are NO mass-produced RV's worthy of a 'gold standard' designation. Everything is pretty much built from relatively low quality components -- enough to get the job done, but nothing ever over-the-top. And of course, we as Americans, are not going to pay the price for an RV that might truly be the gold standard, because there's too much other stuff on the market that, on the surface, looks just fine and will serve our needs until something goes wrong or falls apart due to the materials and workmanship we've settled for --- then we can get on this forum and bellyache about it! :C Happy travels! You won't here me bellyache about my APEX. It has done everything I bought it for, with minimal maint, as did my 2004 Pioneer. I bought them to camp in, to keep me dry, and to follow me around. and they both did it with no protest.

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

Honestly. If the Lance travel trailers are no better than the Lance truck campers. They are not any thing to brag about.

RE: TARS

Marathon, or Endurance? At any rate 5 year old tars are just looking for a place to blow out.

RE: open, screen emergency exit window for ventilation?

Has anyone tried to build a screen of some kind, and use it so you can open the 'emergency exit' window in their RV for ventilation? We are trying to find a way to be able to open the back emergency exit window in back bedroom of our RV for more ventilation. My initial thought is, we'd build a frame of some kind the exact size of the window with a screen in it. Basically build a screen for the window, that you'd put in place with velcro only when you open the window. You'd prop the window open, then put the screen over it (on the inside) using velcro or something to hold it in place. I have already verified, that the window *is* hinged at the top, and it will not fall out when we open it like some older style emergency exit windows used to do. Has anyone ever done anything like this, or is this a totally ridiculous idea? I did it to my Pioneer. I didn't build a frame though. I just stuck velcro to the inside of the window, cut screen, velcroed it, and stuck it on. Works great. Now the new TT has screen on the E window. So i didn't have to do anything to open it.

RE: No shots...not getting in.

It should be required to travel across borders or on public transportation. No one has the right to endanger the health of others. There will be those who don't get shot because of religion and that is their choice but should not be permitted to travel. Those who can't take the shot due to health also should not travel due to health. It is all a matter of choice. And it is a personal choice. So you are saying your vaccination didn't work? That the covid shot is useless? Because if you have had it, and it works. It doesn't matter if someone beside of you has had it or not. IF it works. You are protected. How are they endangering your health? That you don't believe it works is the very reason most are not getting it. Why get it, if it doesn't work? The shot is to keep the crud to a manageable level and keep you out of the hospital not to keep you from getting the crud. Be aware the crud serious or not has shown to cause serious health issues including heart and lungs. So you are saying there is no benefit to getting the shot since it does not protect you . So tell me why any one should get it. According to you it is useless. Why subject yourself to an experimental drug if people like you say it is useless. Me, Well I think it works, so I took it. I don't worry about those that didn't infecting me. Of course I didn't worry about them infecting me before I Took it. And How would any one know? It is against health laws for anyone to even ask.

RE: Cracked tires

Just one more question guys. The tires I’m going to replace are Carlisle Radial TRail HD. We used to tow this each winter from BC to Yuma Arizona. Now we have a place down there and won’t be towing it. Our trailer will now have limited miles and use. What tire would you recommend ? Marty Honestly MAXXIS as of now has the best long run reputation. GoodYear Endurance run a close second, and may proves to be as good or better in years to come. And one of the best things about those 2 tires, is that they are rated for more than 65 MPH. As a general rule just about all ST tires are rated to 65 MPH. And while I am not saying you should run faster. But, IF you were to happen to let it run down a hill and go over the 65 MPH ratings. It wouldn't hurt them.

RE: Cracked tires

Our trailer has been sitting for 2 years. I was checking the psi and only down about 5 pounds. Both tires on the passenger side have cracks in the sidewall and these have had tire covers on the whole time. Do I buy 2 new ones or do I have to replace all 4. ? Thanks, Marty were I you. I would get 5. replace the spare as well

RE: Oregon rules for pumping gasoline & covid-19

"Back in the day" you wouldn't be here....or sitting in an RV as nice as you have now. Why not? I worked "back in the day". And lots of people had very nice RVs. ME, I had a very nice boat.

RE: No shots...not getting in.

I am fully vaccinated, my personal choice. However, there have been no long time tests to prove it is safe, so I wouldn’t criticize anyone who is Leary of it. Just because millions have agreed to it and a small percentage have bad reactions, no one knows what the long time effect will be. There is usually a 3:to 5 year trial period to vaccines, this one only has months. So I understand why many people aren’t willing to chance it. Just because our governments have taken a gestapo like approach to it doesn’t mean it is safe. Exactly

RE: No shots...not getting in.

Honestly. Shouldn't it be a personal choice?It is. Best of luck to them without the vaccine. Agree to a point. But since they lived thru the worst part, and didn't get it. There is a better than good chance they won't and in truth it is 99 percent survivable for most people. Then there is the ones that did have it and now have immunity because of it. They don't need the vaccine. Or so the doctors say.

RE: No shots...not getting in.

Honestly. Shouldn't it be a personal choice? We have had ours. But we weren't forced. Isn't that what freedom is all about. After all, if you are vaccinated, you are safe. Well if it works. So by trying to force others to be vaccinated. Aren't you really saying you don't trust your vaccination? And if you don't think your vaccination worked, why would you think someone else's did? Them being vaccinated makes you no safer. So why worry about their choice?

RE: How many can they get in that camper?

I agree. There are probably tents, and or, some sleeping in the back of the TV
