RE: Xchocks question

You can easily drive away with X Chocks in place. Not so easy with regular chocks. Don't ask how I know. B.O. I've tried to but the wheels are locked!

RE: Xchocks question

You can easily drive away with X Chocks in place. Not so easy with regular chocks. Don't ask how I know. B.O. If you drive over the yellow plastic chocks, they get crushed. I have a buddy who bought a trailer ( first timer) and he had those plastic chocks and plastic levellers... first trip out he was setting up and after i was set up i go to check on him, all the plastic chocks and some levellers were broken!!! Lmao! Rocks and 2x6 from me had to do.

RE: Used Arctic Fox

She sent me the VIN, I looked it up, well within the limits of her truck. Where is this "VIN lookup" place that tells you an RV is "within the limits" of a given tow vehicle? I've never heard of a website offering that kind of a database. Probably the same website that says you don't need a wd hitch!!

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

I have a lot of trailers currently and have always had over the years. Back in the day people would take the older used tires off of their trucks and put them on the trailer. Nothing ever happened and no one checked air pressure every morning. Somewhere 20 years ago Goodyear Marathon became standard and quickly followed by a long list of no name st tires. The only tires i had with no issues was Maxxis which i had on my motorcycle trailer. But two other situations with Maxxis and they failed within 4 years. And so did every other brand. Now i have just about everything running on 16" lt tires and it doesn't matter what tire is on they just work. For 15" i use goodyear wrangler ht. No problems ever since switching to Lt tires.

RE: Accidentally plugged into 220v

The wiring job was fine. It was wired properly for 220v. We'll have to disagree on that! The TT 30A receptacle is not made made to be wired for 220v so it was wired incorrectly. http://www.myrv.us/Imgs/PDF/30-amp%20Service.pdf "The TT–30 is a 30A, 120-volt recreational vehicle standard sometime it is called simply RV 30. Frequently it is confused for a NEMA 10–30 (see below) with disastrous results. Due to the appearance of the TT-30 plug, many people assume that it is to be wired for 240-volt, but this is a 120-volt device." Again.. it was wired for 220v indoor appliances using a dual pole breaker. That has nothing to do with the recepticle . If we knew it required 110v , we would have went with the single pole which has a different wiring diagram. As previously stated, if you have no advice on surge protectors or ways I can checkk for damaged appliances I respectfully ask you to please mind your own business and stop telling me it was wired wrong. I respectfully ask you to please mind your own business and stop telling me it was wired wrong. I know what caused the issue and it won’t happen again in the future . It was wired wrong, plain and simple. Next time get a qualified person instead of an HVAC guy!

RE: Diesel truck issues - thinking of going to gas

For allignment problems take it to an allignment specialty shop, not to the dealer. Dealers can't do alignments? You should find a new dealer i think!

RE: Leveling blocks

i agree with the lego blocks. you spend thousands of bucks on an RV. spend a few more and do it right. looks better also. Use red cedar blocks and stain them with a translucent stain... expensive but you want that right? And it looks better...
