RE: Additional fuel tank

Just be certain to install an “in-line” filter between auxiliary tank and main tank. I use a 3481 inline filter. It has threaded fittings on each end so you can adapt to any size hose you use.

Our hospitals have been in a trying to “catch up” state for many years. Before “the covid flu”, wait times for a new hip has been 2 years plus for a decade. We tend to not notice unless it affects us personally and for many “history” starts every morning.

RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

Because of reports of others (early December) going, and we’re not asked, we waited because of the desire to have Christmas with our kids and grandkids. So we tried on the 31st and were turned back. Officers blamed their president.

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

The trailer does have a battery cut off switch. It’s off and I just checked to see if it charges the batteries when plugged in. It does. So draw on them shouldn’t be an issue.

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

Was thinking then perhaps I’ll just plug it in for a day every two weeks. ??

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

Normally I do take them ( 4 6volts) out but as I get older for some reason they get heavier!! And if Biden can figure it out that an un-jabbed Canadian snowbird isolated in his trailer is no more dangerous than the millions streaming in from the south to stay. Maybe will drive south for two months and spend some money.

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

Don’t know how well a solar would work here in the frozen short sun lite days of the north.

Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

Or can I leave it plugged in all winter as a maintainer? This is on a 09 Cedar Creek 5th.

RE: Spring suspension issues

I or they would never do this on a customers trailer. In that case we would cut the hangers off and weld on new ones.

RE: Spring suspension issues

6000 lb. I phoned Lippert. They agreed that there should be more spread than what I have. We agreed on an simple economic solution. I’ll keep the springs but will drill new holes at the front and back hangers. Adding an inch at both locations.

RE: Spring suspension issues

Well I guess I’d consult myself as that’s what I own. A trailer repair shop! I’ve noted that the distance between axels can vary as much as 8 inches depending on the brand and size of the trailers. This trailer as I stated started out with 4 leafs per spring. I increased them to 5. I’ve put about 30,000 miles on them and they are looking tired. I think the trailer is about 12,000 lb. until she loads it?? Regarding scrubbing, (which I’m careful to avoid) adding 2 to 3 inches I doubt will be an issue.

RE: Spring suspension issues

Why in the world did Lippert build some of these trailers with such a small gap between the tires?? And this is the size of tire stated on the vin sticker. Was thinking if I can’t find shorter springs then perhaps because there is considerable meat on the hangers I may just drill new holes one inch back on the rear hangers and one inch forward on the front hangers?? That way I will increase the gap by 2 inches. I should have mentioned in my original post that another concern is the shackles at the equalizer are vertical and damaging the strap and the equalizer. All pictures I see on the equalizer sites shows them at a slight angle. Again a sloppy job when originally built.

RE: Spring suspension issues

Well I wondered about getting shorter springs but was told none existed??

Spring suspension issues

Bought the 09 34foot Cedar fifth 5 years ago. Upgraded the 4 leaf springs to new 5 leaf. Considering doing it again and going to 6 leaf which would be rated at 3500 pounds. Or will this give to stiff a ride? They have flattened out some. I’m also thinking of cutting off the front and rear hangers and re-weld them on in order to spread the axels about 3 inches. The tires are only about 1.5 inches apart. I Once had tires that started to expand in diameter when they warmed up and began to touch. Replaced them of course but I’m not happy with how close they are together.

RE: How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

Wa8 Don’t worry about us filling landfills with cups. I cut them open, shake out and compost the grounds. Then because there is a tiny amount of oil in each cup I use them to help start the fires in the wood stove we heat our house with. I love to watch the black smoke going skyward and the spreading out all over the country side from witch the product originally came from. Although if I run out of Kcups I burn railway ties and they really pour out the black smoke!! I’d advise to only burn those at night so your neighbors don’t see the black smoke. But it sure does through the heat when it’s -40 degrees out side.

RE: How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

We had one freeze and break even though we were sure it was drained.

How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

It has been suggested that we run some whisky through it. Is there a better way other than keeping it in the truck/motels for 3 day?

RE: Antifreeze in transmission 2010 Duramax??

Thanks ZR1 If my memory serves me correctly some older other GM vehicle I had a mechanic recommended disconnecting the Tran cooler lines at the radiator because of this kind of risk and we connected the oil lines to an aftermarket cooler installed in front of the rad. Is this the right thing to do with this truck?

Antifreeze in transmission 2010 Duramax??

What’s going on here. How does this happen? And has it ruined my transmission?

RE: Amps/voltage to trailer brakes

Next time I hook up I will check amperage. Thanks all.
