RE: Running lights always on

Ok. I reread the OP. It sounds like it was hard wired at the junction box. Just remove the wire and tape it off. Or use it and install your own switch so you can turn them on when you want.

RE: Cleaning your AC Filter

Look what’s on the filter when it gets used for a weekend. Now imagine it removed and what would be on the evaporator after one year of use. Just clean the filter after every trip!

RE: Running lights always on

I installed a switch on mine so I could turn them on when camping. Just enough light to light walk around and not bother any neighbors. Not to mention if it was pitch black out and I took the dogs for a walk I could see the trailer on the way back! And before I did the switch, I used a 15A blade fuse with the blades bent just a bit and slid this into the connector. The running light circuit and battery circuit are right next to each other. Very easy to make the lights come on. And if you have an old school flasher you can plug that into it and make the lights flash. Good if your broke down on the side of the road and need to leave the trailer.....and perfect to upset the neighbors!!!!

RE: Trailer hitch

How are you going to move it with the rear tires removed on the TV? Because that's the only way your idea will work! There is too much resistance on the rear tires. So when solidly mounted like you want it will not turn. Period!

RE: Charge for each pet ??? your thoughts

$5 per pet? They better have an extremely nice fenced in pet area with plenty of trash receptacles. And maybe a little pet drinking fountain! I stay away from the places that have breed restrictions. You know the ones that will ban a family German shepherd but let in the yappy lap dogs that bite way more than any family large dog ever would!

RE: how do dey do dat ?

OK I watched it on YouTube, that truck has 15 cameras and at least one is on the trailer. Ya, they don't let that little bit of info out of the bag in the commercial!

RE: Running lights always on

It's possible the 7 way is shorted internally to the battery wire. Or at the junction box behind the A-frame. I had a TT that all of a sudden the running lights would come on in the middle of the day when it got warm outside. They would go out when it got hot. Then they started staying on all the time. I traced it down to a shorted running light wire to one of the fielding lights. They must've been crossed over when they built it and all of a sudden they shorted together. I had no idea where it was at, but it was in the rear half of he trailer somewhere. I found the wire that fed the fielding lights in a cabinet and cut it, no more all day runnng lights. I did have to run another wire for the interior cileing lights, but that was way easier than trying to find a short.

I do the same thing as the OP, but the wife gets upset when she finds tile missing in the kitchen!

RE: Traveling in a group— How do you handle it?

No need to stay in sight, but within 10 miles or so would be better off.

RE: Bicycle Rack

My buddy uses a dual receiver with a 2" rise and 4" drop. His bike rack goes in the top and the tow bar goes in the bottom. Whatever you do, just get a quality bike rack. For me, my Explorer has a hitch and I put the bike rack on that. This year I'm buying a new rack to replace my 12 year old 4 bike rack that hangs he bikes from the frame. I'm going with a wheel mounted rack. Tired of watching the bikes move on the rack. The wheel mounted rack will be more stable. I just need to shop for a good rack.

RE: Replace a soundstream radio head

I too recommend calling them. The people on their phone support will get you what you need. And you will have a better quality head unit.

RE: asking for suggestions/opinions

We went from TT for 15 years to our new (used) MH last year. All I can say is I wish I would've bought a MH when we started. Traveling is much better! Withhe larger fuel tank there is no need to stop frequently on longer trips. Just generally a better travel experience.

RE: 2020 F-53 V-8 Specs

My only issue with all this is the way he manuf give tonte power. Yes the motor makes its HP at a certain rpm. But they take it away with torque management, (drive by wire, timing and fuel reduction etc.) Meaning under full throttle your not getting 100% throttle opening at a given RPM. Sometimes it's only 70% throttle opening when you want 100%. This is where the 5star tune comes in. I can't wait to have mine tuned.

RE: When does a Pickup become a " Historical Vehicle"?

In IL the vehicle has to be 25 years old to get the plates. What's sad is my sons 1998 Mercedes Benz E430 is coming up on that. Something is wrong when cars from the mid 90's qualify for that status!!! LOL

RE: Towing a 2640lb 16ft TT with a Ford Ranger 4.0L?

I had a wing on my Excursion that helped push he air up and over the trailer. I gained .5mpg by using it. I went from 7 to 7.5 just using th wing with no other changes. With a pickup truck you would have to have a cap on the bed so the wing can be mounted as close as possible to the trailer. Other wise just on the roof of the cab is to dpfar away. I found my wing on CL and paid $75 for it. It paid for itself on our first long trip. It was also adjustable which helps for directing air.

RE: Things to do in Biloxi/Gulfport MS

From there, you are only 1 1/2 hours from New Orleans and about about the same to Mobile AL , Pensacola Beach isn't far from there. You can venture to other areas in a fairly short time. We are staying at French Quaerter RV Resort after Biloxi for a day and a half. So that is covered. But thanks again for all he info. Definitely gives me options.

RE: Towing a 2640lb 16ft TT with a Ford Ranger 4.0L?

I towed a 25ft Award TT with a 95 Explorer 4dr with the 4.0 (pushrod Motor) and 3.73 gears. It did fine in the Midwest. Never took it too any mountainous areas, but I would imagine it would’ve been slow. The trailer loaded for a trip was 5k lbs! The Award is very aerodynamic so it towed easy. The trailer the OP has is a brick and would really make any older V-6 work.

RE: Looking at new better tires, need advice.

I also would look at the gy endurance You might think about the 215 size instead of the 205 size as it gives you a bit more weight capacity and isn’t any larger diameter so should fit fine. Though not knowing the weight of your trailer you may not need any additional weight capacity cushion?????? All other specs being the same, a 215 WILL be taller than a 205. Not saying it won't fit, or that it's a bad idea.... Just that it WILL be taller A 215 70 14 will be the same height as a 205 75 14, jus a bit wider. With hat said I would only consider the Carlisle HD tires.
