RE: Electric tongue jack. Good brand name?

Another option is RiecoTitan 4000lbs jack Their truck camper jacks have worked good for me on a couple campers. The tongue jacklooks like the same drive system and has a tongue weight scale on it.

RE: Rewiring Trailer Brakes - How to Allow for Axle Movement?

Being basically lazy I would make the axle loop about the same length as the old wires.

RE: Has anyone looked at the Jeep Gladiator?

Grit - I wheeled a KW with a C16 Cat “6 banger” - it could give pretty much any RV trailer the ride of it’s life ... :B

RE: Restrictions on older RVs.

I check with the nearest cactus or pine tree where I usually park... they are good with my rig... But ... occasionally use private enterprise paid site... The one time at the $150/night one in Palm Springs CA they didn’t take truck camper rigs.

RE: Difficulty getting the tow ball to release from hitch

On my singly I land the jack, remove the WD bars, and drop the rear air suspension. On my dually same as above but don’t use WD.

RE: retained fumes in garage?

My toyhauler has a separate closed garage with no furniture to get stunk up. The loft bed is part of the living space. (Carriage C-Force). It has opposing vents that can be opened to pressurize the garage when under way and a Fantastic fan in the ceiling. And two awning windows. And a seal around the garage to kitchen door. The fuel tanks are external. Constant ventilation is the key.

RE: Difficulty getting the tow ball to release from hitch

One I see frequently on the craigslist is various spellings of pindel, pendel etc hitch vs the proper spelling pintel hitch. Or is it a “pintle hook” ? Anyhoo it’s the Best one ever - back in, smash into the trailer, wind the jack down, close the hook, pin it,done. Wish all heavy trailers had them.., Would it work with WDH? Or sway control? Yup. But they are usually used on vehicles and trailers that don’t need weight redistribution or sway control. You would have to build a WD hitch with a flat plate to bolt the hook to. Then modify the trailer to attach the round eye. You could put some rubber “chucking absorbers” in while you are at it.

RE: Lubricating manual tongue jack - it binds

Use oil, it will run down to where it is needed. Try to get some oil on the shaft under the gear via a spray oil product so it can run down the thread like ^ posted. Maybe you have some rustage from the jack standing in one spot?

RE: Difficulty getting the tow ball to release from hitch

1 Chalk the trailer wheels (both sides and one chalk in front and one chalk behind). I hate to be the one that does this but I see it so often... It's a CHOCK not a CHALK... Chalk is for scribbling on things like blackboards and driveways... A Chalk is also a group of men about to jump from an aircraft or land in a glider, (yes, I'm that old and I did the former many times). A Chock is a, generally, triangular piece of a firm to hard substance placed in front, in between or behind - or any combination of the three - the wheels that prevents a wheeled vehicle or, in my case, aircraft from rolling away... Yes, I'm an old curmudgeon.... Drop into my campsite sometime and we'll drain a few... ;-) :E Oh my gudness, it is the Intern net Spull chuck sundrom... Get a life.. give the guy a brake sundrom’s arnt sindrums

RE: Quick Connect for Extra Batteries in truck bed?

I used connections like Ski Pro ^. I installed a diode isolator under the hood, and ran battery cable gauge wires to through bulkhead posts high in the front of the box. I made shortie cables with the connector from the bulkhead fittings to the batteries in the camper. I can quick disconnect without tools when unloading the camper. I can remove the truck half of the cables from the box lugs to store it out of the way when hauling stuff with the truck. 14.6v measured at the batteries with the engine running. I disconnect the little blue charging wire in the camper cord end to the truck, but leave it alone on the truck end so it works for my other trailers that have emergency brake batteries. Any connector mentioned above that is rated for the alternator amperage will work. My new campers batteries are at the total opposite end of the camper

RE: Titan Cummins Diesel option axed for 2020

Our on highway rep from Cummins told me the 5.0 automotive V8 engine was designed for Dodge 1500 series trucks and vans prior to the formation of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

RE: Curious question, effective weight over bumps

Can’t say for pickups and rv’s but in heavy duty trucks tires inflated to the correct pressure for the load are an active suspension component protecting the vehicle, occupants and cargo from road “ imperfections”.

RE: Hubodometer

Hi Art they have been used in the heavy truck transport industry for many moons. Check with your local heavy truck parts supplier to have a look at one and see if you can adapt a bracket to your trailer’s wheel bolts/pattern.

RE: Where's the 2020 Ram HD?

Ford has a good finance lease business with commercial fleets and government. Many many white F150s and Super Duty’s each year. I didn’t know every employee and shareholder of FCA (“the Italians”) is Italian. The things you learn on RV dot net....

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

Well you drivers who close up and tailgate but don’t pass, or tailgate 2 or 3 tailgaters thereby creating a 400 ft long parade no one can pass should quit that habit. There eventually is an impatient driver who chances it and goofs it and there is braking and evasive manoeuvers that are totally unnecessary. Sheeple. Sheeple with ‘magnetic bumper syndrome’, even on a multi lane highway they slide right up the back of the car ahead and just sit there, far too close for highway speed. They won’t pass even with nothing in the left lane. Just drive along mesmerized by the back of the next car. You got that right.
