RE: Travel Trailer Purchase

They are both used. The Shadow is a personal sale from a couple who got divorced and just wants to get rid of it. The Aspen is at a dealer and was traded in. If the decision was purely about functionality I think I'd take the Aspen but I worry that I may not like camping or may just be too busy to use it and want to be sure if that happens I will get most of my money back when/if I sell. I'm not in the market for anything right now because prices for any luxury item, vehicle, etc are outrageous. We are in the process of a correction right now with high interest rates and high costs of goods. If you want to insure you can get your money back, save your money now and wait unit the bottom falls out then pick something up that someone bought and can't afford the payments, storage cost, doesn't like camping 3' from their neighbor, etc. If your not sure you will like using a camper, try renting first to see if you like it. Spending almost $30K on a trial, you are sure to lose money in the end. Good advice ^

RE: Wheel Bearings

These threads pop up from time to time and always amazed by the responses. On our 4th trailer and have yet to replace a wheel bearing using EZ-lube. Simply Jack one wheel at a time and spin the tire while injecting grease. Things to worry about.....proper tire PSI and roof maintenance.

RE: trailer quality

Oliver and Lance come to mind. You could also check out Airstream if you can live without a slide....we can't.

RE: 2000 Fleetwood Mallard 29s water heater question

Mitch is correct...2 switches. An issue I've ran into twice over the years is paper wasps. They love taking up residence in the gas orifices which prevents ignition. A possible culprit if you've located the switch and still no flame.

RE: Sway bars

On our 4th trailer and my tried and trusted Reese DC has been on each one of them. Currently tow a 30ft 7700# trailer with a F250 7.3 gas and won't leave home without a WDH.....For the safety of myself and others.

RE: [email protected] 400 -- comments by those who've seen it??

This is all I can offer as an uneducated. My sister and her husband recently purchased the Tab 400 and spent 2 months out west. Came home and talked about the scenery and the trout fishing but never a complaint about the Tab. They pulled 4300 miles with a Toyota Tacoma and I'm still yet to hear anything negative. The wife and I do much the same but prefer at least 30ft of trailer......enjoy.

RE: Tank treatment that can restore sensor accuracy?

On our 4th trailer and the sensors never worked fulltime. Now that it's just the wife and I, not a big deal.

RE: How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

Run some RV antifreeze through it. JK Why would you be staying in motel rooms when you're pulling a place to sleep with a furnace ? The coffee maker would be the least of my worries if my fully stocked trailer was subject to freezing temps. If you must and talking one night stays, simply set your furnace on a low setting " above freezing ". One night on a low setting will not kill a charged DC battery....I've done it.

RE: Plugged in or out

Trailer is fully stocked and heated all winter and is plugged in 24/7.

RE: I Winterized ............. but then this happened.

You can order the seal and install yourself but may have to do some fancy camera work behind the toilet to get serial #, what I had to do. Once a seal goes dry, they expire.

RE: New GMC 2500 Wont Engage Trailer Brakes

Wow,certainly frustrating and something I've yet to hear of. Perhaps cheaper in the long run to install an aftermarket brake controller. Have you invested in a brake tool to verify pad spacing. Possibly the trailer and not the truck.

RE: Ref freezes everything

She probably knocked the thermister off of the cooling fins. Clip it back on it will be good to go. The likely culprit. But an expendable wife may also be worthy of exploration.

RE: Removing built up sealant?

Actually own a heat gun with a low setting that does the trick. I also tape off before reapplying Dicor.

RE: Getting my trailer settled for the winter

I park in gravel over the winter and have done so for 30+ years without any issues. I've not erected the stabilizers though but see nothing wrong with your regime Sometimes we overthink.

RE: Ford Gas 6.2 vs 7.3

I also have the 7.3 with 3.55 gears and wouldn't trade it but tow quite a bit.

RE: Do I need my WD bars just to move in the driveway?

We just recently moved a 35ft trailer with a 2001 Jeep Wrangler, entertaining. You should be fine.

RE: No heat / Furnace not working

Each time I've had a furnace failure, had to replace the sail switch.

RE: My TT ain't so great for winter camping....

Even our 4-season trailers were nothing to brag about in freezing temps. Winterize and make it work is a viable option. Oh, glad you're enjoying yourself.
