RE: 2020 Strikes Again

Had it happen twice now but both were resolved. I live in VA but evidently lived in Indiana and Boston unbeknownst to me. I did however take a credit score hit.

RE: Can you retreat gas with stabil to extend protection?

I would highly recommend using non ethanol fuel for any vehicle that's dormant for that long. Stabil can not fight the effects of corn fuel for that duration. Ahhh beat me to it.

RE: Who uses a pop-up canopy?

We use to setup a screen room years ago around picnic table but now we just push a button and extend the awning.....just 1 less thing to mess with.

RE: My very own 'broken bumper' story...why didn't I listen?

Yep, watched my BIL's twist off while following him on an annual trip.....destroyed both bikes. Wife called and said " you're bikes are dragging the road "....to late.

RE: TT to HTT

Wife and I played the progression game to, Tent - P'up - Hybrid - trailer. We spent 12 years in a Starcraft Travel star 21SSO and had an absolute blast with the kids and dog. Big slide, lots of room and trailer weighed 4900 lbs loaded. We never had an issue that jumps out and being an outdoorsy family, can't speak of being hot inside because we were always outside. If you decide on hybrid, get the cables on the bed ends. Fast forward: Kids are gone, I'm retired, wife semi retired and she wanted a TT. It's bigger, longer and everything is push button but you'll still find us outside hiking, kayaking or sit'n around the fireplace. Hope you enjoy whatever trailer you decide.

RE: Fresh Water System Sanitizer

Has anyone ever gotten sick from the fresh water system? After 32 years of not doing it I’m not about to start anytime soon. Never gotten sick but have experienced the very foul odor created by bacteria in the water system, more prone to happen when trailer has sat in warmer weather. What we've done the past couple of years is drain the system between trips and always fill fresh water tank ( 60 gal ) before departure. I would still recommend sanitizing as it's extremely easy preventative maintenance.

RE: Getting close to a TT

I'm unaware of any " quality built " trailer but some better than others......good news is you'll have no trouble pulling it.

RE: Dehumidifier overkill?

Run a ceramic heater and slightly cracked window.....we seldom run the furnace when hooked to shore.

RE: Fresh Water System Sanitizer

This is a tough crowd but happen to agree. Just dump some bleach in the fresh and later....run it out. I'm amazed at the gimmicks.

RE: Have You Installed Your Own Slide Topper?

I would love slide toppers, but what does everyone do in the winds? We get horrible winds where we camp. I Don't have slide toppers on current trailer but on previous trailer, they could withstand much more wind when compared to an awning......but some flapping is to be expected. My Colorado toppers were 10 yrs old when trailer was sold.

RE: Tow Vehicle Rear End Sag

No, I'm only eliminating the need for airbags on a bumper pull trailer. My Reese DC is setup properly with the proper trunnion bars to match tounge weight. I can also use my headlights at night without illuminating the clouds, truck and trailer sit level without compromising safe handling. That said, I do pull a 7300 lb trailer with a 3/4 ton truck. I've mounted this WDH onto 4 different trailers and upgraded trunnion bars twice ,adjusted per spec and always end up extremely close to level, truck and trailer. Wish you and your family safe towing.

RE: 1/2 ton towing

Well for starters, you considered dry weight which will never come into play. Your looking at a 10K trailer minimal with 1200 lb tounge.....there goes your payload once you add a dog and wife. Tow ratings are very deceitful.

RE: Tow Vehicle Rear End Sag

Nope, while the spring bars on a formidable WDH returns weight to the front, it also mitigates rear sag.....airbags shouldn't be a necessity but rather heavier spring/trunnion bars. So you just keep adding weight distribution till the rear comes up to where it started? Yeah, Right. Yeah, it's called weight distribution. 4 trailers and each rode level and each application absorbed the tounge weight perfectly. What's the purpose of investing in a WDH that sags?

RE: Ideas for Keystone water connection upgrade?

Have the 2020 Outback.....they must have listened to the complaints. Everything separated and stout.

RE: Have You Installed Your Own Slide Topper?

I installed Colorado toppers and ideally, the topper should measure the same but can't imagine a little overhang being of much harm. My wife helped and ended up breaking a finger nail when the whole contraption unsprung but we succeeded.

RE: RAM TRX and the Super Ike

Didn't realize that sand caused flats....oh wait, it's those darn cactus.

RE: Black Tanks Won’t Flush

I'm betting you have a grey and black discharging together. Have you properly identified all available connections such as fresh water fill, city hookup and black tank flush ? Sorry for sounding elementary but not quite wrapping my head around this scenario your experiencing.

RE: It’s the little things! Gravel Pad for my TT!!

Mice are not as happy about running across a gravel parking area as they are grass so it will help keep the mice out of the camper too Trust me, this is actually very true.

RE: It’s the little things! Gravel Pad for my TT!!

Very nice and roomy. I also think that tires resting on gravel is much better than resting on soil.
