RE: Mystery leak

Leaks can travel long distances along rails, boards, wiring etc. Look for the obvious then go from there. Also what he said ^^^^

RE: Kwikee Step

I'm going to suggest the 3 bushings have flattened, allowing the motor to keep rotating. It is a common issue that causes people to buy motors and gear boxes, when all that's needed is the bushings. The bushings fit inside of this gear. Take the gear and cover off the side of the motor and you will see the issue. Bushings also available from Oreilly Auto Parts, for Ford power windows The motor itself is similar if not the same as a Ford power window motor. Last one I used was 67. dollars. Qwikee steps cost much more than that. Richard

RE: Dometic 310 seat replacement This Kohler from Lowes fit. The difference is it doesn't have the plastic shield that covers the pipe on the rear. The one I found with the shield of unknown quality was twice as much. Kohler # 20455-0 Ridgewood

RE: New to Travel trailers

I converted a 32 foot cargo trailer into one with living quarters . We used it to haul our jeep out into the desert. The upside is you have a huge living space (they call it a garage in toy hauler terms) that we used for dinners for the group and in inclement weather. With kids, I would look into toy haulers because of that feature. I like smooth sided trailer, I have a work and play toy hauler now, it is a cargo trailer that has living quarters added to it. It is strong but heavy. My truck pulls it without an issue. I don't care for the aluminum sided trailers. personal preference. As was mentioned, first off figure out if and what your tow vehicle can handle. What is your tow vehicle that you plan on using.

RE: Travel trailer blueprint

wiring diagrams are even less reliable when you can find one. As they add options they don't always include new wiring. What specifically are you looking for. Sometimes u boob has videos of trailers being assembled that may give you a few ideas.

Dometic 310 seat replacement

Looking to change to a slow close open front seat. Will standard house styles work. Had to remove toilet because while traveling down a washboard road for 5 miles yesterday, and taking my time, the porcelain top came loose from the base AND the medicine cabinet broke and fell to the floor. There was shaking but didn't realize what an effect it had on my rig. Happy to say my black tank is very clean as I look into it. Some reviews I read about replacement seats specifically for the Dometic were not very positive. What say you.... UPDATE: after visiting local hardware store the home version of seats are straight across, from mounting hole to mounting hole. The domestic is U shaped to allow for the water line in the back.

RE: oil filter?

In my opinion, the filter is as important as the grade of oil. The Motorcraft filter for my diesel was useless. Oil started to show dirty in weeks. They're made in china. I use nothing but NAPA Gold filters.. They cost a few bucks but what's my powerstroke worth?? Jerry NAPA and WIX are the same filters. look at how close in numbers they are. Our WIX rep went and watched them being made at the facility that makes NAPA. Both have proven to be an excellent filter. Filters are like lead acid batteries, the less costly ones have less filtering material or less quality than the costlier ones. Cheap lead acid batteries have less plates.

RE: Winnebago View mattress

Needed a mattress and used a local company here in town. RV mattresses are becoming popular so they are more readily available. They built one to my specs. Not cheap but so worth it. tip of the day: Now, there are companies that claim buy our mattress and we guarantee you like it or money back. The catch is you need to donate it to a non profit get a receipt then send it in. Who accepts used mattresses?

RE: Washing the exterior of our TT

I use regular off the shelf 'car wash' mix for my vehicles. I've recently been turned on to the whole foam cannon method of washing vehicles now, and it's like when the light bulb was invented! Found some "ceramic infused" wash for vehicles and it works great on the trailer too. I use a car wash brush and the whole chore is done in a fraction of the time compared to buckets of soap and such. Good luck! Mitch x2 on the foam cannon. I like chemical guys products. foam it up then soft brush it off. Good results. Detailers years ago used ivory liquid, dawn is strong but gets the bugs off.

2015 Work and Play 25 ft. toy hauler awning replacement

Need new fabric. It's a power awning. Old school on the manual ones was to unwind the spring blah blah but I've seen videos where you make a notch in the end cap and slide the new fabric on? It attaches to the roof in a channel you slide into. Looks similar to how we install awnings on race trailers. Also suggestions for new antenna for TV. Not interested in satellite for this rig.

RE: 16 Navigator L towing Jayco 24BH

^^^ said....... " I can guarantee you one stop from the DOT on a set of scales and they'll tow your tt to the holding yard until you get a vehicle big enough to tow it if you are over.' When has anyone seen that happen. DOT pulling people over? That's a new one to me. Another concern is how much does the front of the Navigator lift once the weight distribution hitch has been set up. Is the Navigator level? Does it sag in the back?

RE: 16 Navigator L towing Jayco 24BH

You are overloaded. If a tire on that tow vehicle fails, you are going to have some serious issues real fast. Look at the u tube videos of out of control travel trailers and see if you want to be on one of them. Not my opinion, just facts based on others doing what you plan on doing.

The OP isn't asking advice about renting, they are asking about a TV. Answer - pretty much every TV made has USB inputs to which you can connect a Roku, Firestick, Chromecast, AppleTV etc, etc. Just find the size TV that fits the space and shop. As far as brands, really they're all the same. So why did he bring it up....asking for a friend. :)

RE: Dewinterizing Today

I feel so left out. I've never dewinterized in my life. :W Me too, had to look it up. Just got back from Montreal and drove by some RV parks and it was interesting how they cover their RV's . Boats are all shrink wrapped in storage.

RE: Time to sell questions

I'd try RVTrader. That's where people looking specifically for RV's tend to look. Spend a few bucks, take LOTS of GOOD pictures, price it right, and you're off to the races. Another word of advice. If you decide on a price, and you see little or no activity, be ready to systematically drop your price. You might have to do it several times, but you will eventually "find the market" and it will sell. Best of luck in your efforts. I always start high, ignore the lowballs, then start to lower the price until I get hits. Like fishing from a boat. IF you are original owner and unit is maintained hold your ground. I purchase my vehicles from one owner only with great success. They will attract good buyers. ignore consignment hoaxes. Clean the dang thing. First place they look is the fridge. If it's dirty..........Bleachy water then air dry. Good market, Take the time to find a buyer, don't appear anxious to sell. Keep us posted.

RE: Braxton Creek LX

Not sure of how long this RV has been on the market but after reading their mission statement it reminded me of the "weekend Warrior" brand. Their statement was they were tired of inferior trailers and were going to set the industry straight. They failed after flooding the market with toy haulers that were poorly engineered and the frames cracked. Class action suits and they bankrupted their business and left everyone hanging. My neighbor had a top of the line model and the gooseneck bent. yes, RV's do have issues. I would not and have not purchased any new ones, let the first owner get stuff fixed instead. If you have a good trailer, keep it up and ignore the call to upgrade to something newer and shinier. ooh yeah, the "extended warranty" Warranties are a waste of money, they benefit the seller. Find a mobile RV mechanic and become friends. Self insure and you will be way ahead. Fix s%$t when it breaks, meaning after every trip. ohh, it gives me piece of mind sending in a payment for something I will never use. Consumer reports says 72% of warranties are never used. Totally off topic but wifey asked me to go find something to do. :C

RE: Sprinter diesel tow question

When I pulled my JK behind my Class C I saw no difference in fuel mileage or feel. It felt like it was not even there. I had a braking system on the Jeep so stopping was not an issue. The tongue weight is next to nothing, just the weight of the tow bar. When I towed a 18ft trailer loaded with race stuff and weighing in around 5K there was a huge difference. So even though the weights are the same the tongue weight changes things. A friend tows his 70'ish Landcruiser behind his MB and he backs up what I just said. He doesn't feel any change with it back there.
