RE: AV gas for the generator

I have been using gas with ethanol for many years in everything, and never have I had any issues with it. No melted rubber hoses, no aged out gas, no clogged carbs, nothing. I have a roto tiller that is probably 40 years old, it burns the stuff just fine. It gets run maybe once a year, and sits with untreated fuel in the tank the rest of the time. Starts with a few pulls.

RE: Dometic Refrigerator Problem

Have you checked for blockage in the roof vent?

RE: 1/2T/huge TT vs strong cross wind = BAADDD DAY

Another reason of why you should have more truck than you need. I don't think an extra thousand pounds would have saved this guy...

RE: Do you really need a corner cut mattress?

Take a piece of cardboard to simulate a square mattress and see how much room you have walk around. Can DW and you live with the space, probably less expensive for the new mattress as well. Ken What he said. If the bed is in a slideout, I'd make sure the larger mattress will work when it's closed.

RE: Curious: difference between a WD hitch and Hensley Arrow

For 95% of all TT setups the Hensley is a solution in search of a problem. If they were cheaper everyone would have one. Why not have the best if you can? because if you have a well matched combo, they aren't necessary, especially for the price. a good modern WDH with integrated sway control works great with no need to spend 8x the money. Exactly. I use a Husky Centerline (equalizer clone) and my setup is rock solid under all conditions. No need to spend $2500 on a hitch.

RE: Curt trailer coupler lock

The majority of coupler locks are easily defeated junk.

RE: Waste/Sewage System

A DIY septic system is very likely not going to pass muster. Best to find out what is actually required by code before you do anything that will cost money.

RE: Camping with my dog

Amazing the number of people who think the rules do not apply to them. So good of you to bore us all with your mindless post in both dog based threads that are running concurrently. You, of course, have never failed to report items bought online to the MI taxman that you didn't pay sales tax on or some other silliness. Funny how the rules don't apply to you eh? Stones and glass houses come to mind. Gosh, I must have touched a nerve! You must be one of those who thinks they are special.

RE: Payload Rating vs Tongue Weight

Does you Santa Fe allow the use of a WD hitch? Some unibody SUVs do not have sufficient strength to take the additional load. Someone posted here some time back about their WD hitch bending rear suspension components on (I believe) a Kia SUV.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

So many dog owners who think the rules do not apply to them.

RE: Weight Calculations

I once tried hauling a 250 lb dirt bike on the bumper of a 23' TT. Caused a sway event that nearly put me in the median. Never again.

RE: Dexter Easy Lube axles

Yes, you should spin the wheel while using the EZ Lube feature. Personally, I do not use it because it can result in grease getting past the rear seal and onto the brakes. I prefer to disassemble and repack so I can inspect the brakes.

RE: Culling the herd....

This sort of thing happens all the time. Some people seem to think Yellowstone is a petting zoo.

RE: Hey Michigan people, title and registration question

As long as the seller gave you the old title and a bill of sale, you're good to go.

RE: strange axle nut on 5th wheel hub

In a car or truck, when a bearing begins to fail you can hear it and often feel it. So how does one tell if a never lube trailer bearing goes bad?

RE: Trailer legs

You can replace your tires for about the same amount. These look like a way bigger hassle than they are worth.

RE: Service unavailable, again

I haven't had a problem since switching to the Good Sam portal several years ago. Lenovo laptop with Win 10 and Chrome, both fully updated. On rare occasions I see the Captcha when posting a comment, but hitting the back button then posting again gets rid of it.
