RE: HEY we need a sticky for our TT pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice! Looks like your truck with it's capabilities won't even have to breath hard to tow that. Thanks! And 10-4. That was the idea. This will be great for now but I never wanted to not have enough truck, short of buying a dually (at the time I didn’t like them, and I own one already). Wanted to be able to get anything reasonable and be able to haul it wether it be this for now, or a fifth wheel in the future. Also can handle a lot of pin weight. And yeah you know it’s back there, but I’m still dealing with a proper hitch setup. I still believe that weight distribution is necessary. But for that 50 mile tow home there were no problems other than my adjustable hitch being one or two notches too low. Have yet to take the whole thing to a flat parking lot to take measurements.

RE: HEY we need a sticky for our TT pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here’s our new to us trailer. Doesn’t look like much but can’t argue with free. Waiting on some roofing material that will hopefully be here tomorrow, replaced the original tires from 2002, need to redo wheel bearings, and transfer everything over from the camper (in profile at bottom. Will update when I get a chance), and button and tune a few things up. I’m sure we will find some more things that need work, but our first trip with it is scheduled in about four weeks!. I’m excited to move to a larger space from our truck camper. Wife, a seven month old, and three dogs all on the cabover bed was getting to be too much.

RE: Wheel bearings

Thanks for all the responses. I’m very mechanically inclined. This just happens to be the first trailer I’ve owned myself. I’ve delt with wheel bearings before. On someone else’s trailer...about fourteen years ago. I’ll have to just get them off and see what I’m dealing with I guess. I kind of figured that for most stuff in the rv world things were pretty standard as far as sizes used for this length trailer, etc... Hopefully I can just get replacement bearings and seals at my local auto supply store. Hate to order and have to wait for that kind of thing.

Wheel bearings

Hi all, Tried searching a little bit but never any luck on my exact question. Little background. My wife and I inherited an old travel trailer from her parents. We are wel on the way to having the roof fixed (materials are on the way), and replacement of the four original tires and the spare should be done with today. It’s a 2003 Model Aljo by Skyline. For the last five years it’s been lived in on and off and basically hasn’t moved. So I’m getting it so I can really use it and tow it wherever I want. Firstly, plain and simple, is there any way to repack my old wheel bearings so that I don’t damage them and can reuse them? Secondly, wether or not I can repack the ones that are already on it, how can I tell what wheel bearings it uses? Everything seems old and I have no idea where to find that info, other than to tell you that it’s a five lug axle with 14” wheels. This trailer has two. GVWR is 6,xxx. It’s south of 7000 I believe, but could be wrong (at work and can’t verify). But I’d like to keep a couple extra sets of wheel bearings with me on trips for just in case. Don’t want to be that guy that has to leave his trailer on the side of the road to go to an auto parts store that’s hopefully open. Lastly, what kind of grease do you recommend I use? Just anything general lubricant fine, such as Chevron or Napa brand? Thanks

New roof material question

We just inherited a travel trailer from my in-laws. The skylight above the shower in the bathroom was leaking for a while so a new skylight was bought and the roof torn apart and new wood and framing put in to replace rot. So, we are on the good track to having a solid rv. New roof materials are on order, but I need to find one thing I’d like to put back on. From the factory (it’s a Skyline brand RV from 2003), there was a tape or some material that folded over from the top of the roof second down over the metal sides of the trailer before the rubber roof was put on. This material created a soft rounded corner that prevented the roof from potentially cutting the rubber and probably waterproofing a little bit. Can’t find any info on what that tape may be. I’ve searched all kind of seam tapes today and can’t find what I think it is or what could work well. If anyone here knows the product or something to use in its place that would be great. Thanks
