RE: Replacing 5th wheel Landing Gear

Thanks all. Black caulking it will be. I thought maybe it was some type of super goop used by the rv industry.

Replacing 5th wheel Landing Gear

I am replacing the left side (following) leg on my 5th wheel. Does anyone know what type of caulking, sealant or goop that is used to seal where the jack goes thru the flooring and coroplast. It is black and somewhat flexible. Just plain silicone then paint black??

RE: Front Landing Jacks Speed

OK thanks everyone, it appears the general consensus is legs & not the motor. I will take off the cap & check next week end. I know both legs should run at the same speed & they did for years. I also can sit on the ground & press the extend switch & visually watch the left (drivers side extend faster than the other side. And one side is not cranked up higher than the other side. I have the top marked with a sharpie on both sides. As I said in the original post the opposite happens when lifting or retracting the legs. The right side gets to the top, ie the sharpie mark and I stop as don't want to over run that side and the left side is still 2"-3" from reaching the sharpie mark. I then disconnect the square rod and roll the left side up to the sharpie mark. So when starting to extend the legs they are both at the same starting point. And I put the legs both down 5 or 6 holes (both the same on the drop down before starting the power. I know this makes no sense but you can't make this up. I'm not an RV tech but have always done my own work. Some being installed a wet bolt system, repack wheel brgs every couple years, installed 2nd A/C in bedroom, toilet gaskets & other stuff. This has me baffled…...

Front Landing Jacks Speed

The front jacks run at different speeds. Its an 09 Keystone Everest. A single motor system with the long square bar that extends to the other side. The motor side, right side (door side) runs the jack down much slower than the left side, (driver side). The system does not seem bound up or any loud gear noise. It works fine with the exception if the slow side (right) extends down 2-3 inches the left extends 4-5 inches. I have been adjusting this with blocking. Then when leaving, its the opposite. After retracting the jacks, the motor side is fully up and the other side (driver side) is still 2-3 inches down. So to leave & get the left side back up, I take the bar off the motor & spin that side back up by hand. I bought the rig new & never had any problem until this started late last year. Confused yet? Any Idea's ?? I don't want to buy a new motor if its the jacks and I don't want to buy new jacks if its the motor. Thanks for any help.....

RE: TST 507 parts are expensive.

Big shout out to "Delphi". Just bought the Danco #30 model #96744 "O" rings and they are a perfect fit for the TST 507. The last time I changed batteries was just before leaving on a trip & no time to call TST so I used a small dab of goop glue. Just finished digging out all the goop & the Danco 30 fit perfect. $2.49 at Lowes for a 10 pack, can't beat it. Thanks Delphi.....

RE: Is it possible to transfer a RV without a title?

Kansas is probably going to want sales tax on the original sales price of the rig if it was not paid. The original owner may have bought the unit out of state and did not pay any sales tax. The sales tax is then paid when you apply for the license plate in your home state. Since he never put a plate on the trailer, maybe he never paid sales tax. If it was bought in state, then the tax would have been paid at the time of purchase. Is there any dealer sticker from the rv dealer where the rig was originally bought on the rig anywhere?

RE: new hampshire to Florida

magicbus I came thru that way on the 19th, down I-77 and the construction is still the same as it has been for the last 3 or 4 years. From just south of Statesville I think into Charlotte all thru the lake Norman area is cones and construction. It will sure be a nice road in about 8-10 more years. I'll be long gone...….

RE: Florida Rt 301

Yes. I was the OP. I came thru there Tuesday. It is all open but they are working on the by pass. No back up or hold up when I came thru. There are some lane changes etc but well marked and no problem... Come on down....

RE: PSE&G workers up on a transmission line tower

He's not only at the top of the tower, but what ever he is doing, the power is probably also on. And yet he is relaxed with his foot hooked in the ladder step and enjoying a smoke....

RE: Florida Rt 301

Thanks all... I went back to google maps & googled Stark, Fl & nothing. But I was checking the mileage from Brunswick, Ga to Ft Myers & when you put that into google maps for directions there is 2 red dots on either side of Stark on Rt 301. When you put your mouse arrow over the bottom, south side red dot it says "Road Closed" Road Closure on US-301. Just so you know I was not dreaming this up. Thanks again...

RE: Looks like the pickup truck is dead!

I also notice the guy has a set of "Rock Tamers" mudflap across the back for protection.... Nice.

Florida Rt 301

Heading to Fort Myers on Sunday. Does anyone know what the road close is on Rt 301 near Stark, Florida. Looking at Google maps and it shows road closure there. Pulling a 40' 5er & wondering if there is a doable detour. Crossing Florida on 301 is about the easiest part of the drive.

Veterans & Pilto/Flying J

Looking to see when the Cemetery of the Allegheny's near Pittsburgh was having the "Wreath's across America", when they place a wreath on the veterans graves, I found their web site. The site lists the corporate sponsors. Pilot/Flying J are a sponsor. I know there is sometimes bashing the Flying J on the forum here, but I always use the Flying J when traveling, but will now even more as I think this is a very noble cause to place a wreath on our vets graves.

Greasing Ram U-Joint/Spline

Just greased the U joint spline on my Dodge Ram. A lot of folks & some dealers say its not there, but it is. I have done it several times & it is never easy, but thought I would share a couple tips that seem to make it somewhat easier, or at least for me. I move the skid plate under the transfer case. Its a 13mm bolt & 4 of them. Take out 3 and loosen one & rotate the plate out of the way for somewhat better access to the joint. Then locate the hole for the needle grease fitting to go into. I then take a paper clip & bend it open & stick it in the grease hole. The grease fitting hole has a ball & spring inside to seal the hole & heat, grease etc from driving sometimes stick/weld the ball & make getting the needle in to grease very hard. The paper clip pushes on the ball inside & free's it up to insert the needle on the grease gun. Its a PIA and some what a poor design, but Dodge & Ram have used this for years. Good Luck...
