RE: Arctic Fox 1150 is breaking my 2016 Ford 350 dually

2011 F350 dually here towing a 13k loaded FW and have never had any frame, stress issues or cracks. **Nevermind. Appears to be a truck camper forum/issue (?)**

RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

That's an aggressive schedule! Glad though that you are not ready to stop nor feel like it. At soon to be 65, I've still got traveling on my mind!

RE: Locking surge protector

Before we had one permanently installed, we always had a lock on ours. All it takes is once out of a multi stop trip to regret not doing it.

RE: WASH WAX ALL ON FIVER; TIPS?

I use the aluminum 12ft pole that came in the deluxe kit. It does a big area very fast. KEN Just so I understand, you folks that are using the extended pole, you use the pole to both apply the product and to remove it? Our Solitude is 13.5 ft tall. I didn't want to deal with a ladder and maybe get hurt. The long, strong pole is very easy to use. There is a 2 sided "mop type head" that you apply with on side and wipe clean with the other. KEN Thanks for the feedback. Our Bighorn is that tall. We use a pole brush to wash it, so doing the same to wax makes sense.

RE: Getting ready to roll!

It's great to read your post Dale. Happy travels to you and Brendon, and in finding a different rig.

RE: Fear Aggression

To the OP, just wondering how your dog is doing now?

RE: Gonna change Jake's name to JERK LOL!- UPDATED

Funny, well maybe not. Our 9 year old terrier decided last Oct that she was not going to eat her food if the dish was placed on the floor. So we bought her an elevated dish from WeatherTech no less. Nope, that didn't work, but she will drink water from it, which is what we are using it for now because no way am I going to give it away! So . . . princess has her food dish held for her every morning and every night. Interesting is that she will eat people food scraps from a plate placed on the floor and lick her dish once she's eaten everything and it's placed on the floor. We even tried putting her food on a people plate, but nope, she just gives us "that" look! Yes, she's had a complete workup, but is scheduled to go in for her teeth cleaning and one tooth in the front to be pulled. Maybe that will change everything. I don't know. If we didn't have another food motivated terrier in the house, which we do, I would be inclined to let her take her time to decide to get hungry enough to eat it (well, to some degree).

RE: 5th wheel hitches

We have a Hensley TrailerSaver BD3 and now there is a BD5. It comes apart in three pieces and easy to remove and reassemble. We've had ours since buying it new in 2010. With regular maintenance, it stands the test of time and provides a smooth ride with the air shocks.

RE: Lock em up... a long story

Good for your neighbor and to you for being observant and talking to the perpetrators.

RE: Bedroom door

Definitely sounds like an alignment issue. Have no idea though if it's a frame issue or axle issue. If it's an axle issue, you would've noticed problems with your tire wear and tear. Our FW is 10 years old and we've never had that problem. Just as an FYI, we always close the lavatory door and latch the shower door, the only two doors, other than the entrance, in our trailer.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

I read through it and all of the comments where readers write in are on how much they love the new format. Of course.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

I have read 3 issues so far and simply thumbed through 85% of the pages. Nothing pertains to an ordinary camper. I always try to keep politics out of camping, but since Marcus said that he did not need Trump voters support, the magazin has leaned left. It is like it is written for and by Liberal Yuppies that need help camping. I used to read every word of every issue and then take it to my favorite shops that had mags in the waiting room and I would watch people reach for it instead of SI or PEOPLE. Now, I am embarrassed to show it. I do not read it no and will not share it. SAD situation. Agree 100%

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

We just got our fourth issue. First three went to the neighbor and we've always hoarded the Trailer Life issues. I was always anxious to read through it but it's still sitting after a week of receipt.

RE: Bringing Trailer in for Service - Need Advice

Spray foam to keep rodents out may not be effective because they can knaw through it. Steel wool quickly rusts and needs to be replaced. I've had good luck using stainless steel scouring pads from the dollar store. You can tease the pad apart which will give you a long tube. Then wrap it around plumbing or wiring until it fills the hole. The hardest part is finding all the possible entry points and even harder sometimes to access tthem. As a back up I put some glue pads and poison bait out. So far this winter nothing has been trapped, no bait has been eaten, and no other evidence of mouse activity. Never had them gnaw through the spray foam and we inspect bi-annually.

RE: driving from Ouray to Canyonlands NP

We haven't traveled that route, but Youtube has a video on it.

RE: stink bugs

They're not isolated to the East coast. We were overrun by them when we were visiting Glacier National Park. Brought a few stowaways home to Idaho and squashed them right away.

RE: Bringing Trailer in for Service - Need Advice

ReneeG: thanks for that info. I'm sure there are multiple entry points, but the easiest one for them at the moment appears to be several holes/gaps in the underbelly material where they crawl up into the insulation, and from there get into the area underneath the bathtub. I found a huge stash of nuts and seeds in the area under my bathtub. Vacuumed it out as best I can, but they can still gain entry. I will definitely have all the penetrations checked and sealed with spray-foam/steel wool/wire mesh. Anyone have experience with mice getting in via hot water heater? Not the tank itself, but where the water lines come in? No. We didn't find that.

RE: Bringing Trailer in for Service - Need Advice

I have to add to the rodent issue which was not entirely addressed. How are they getting in? When our unit was brand new, the first trip out to Yellowstone revealed chipmunks, yes chipmunks were getting in our basement and up to our fresh intake under our fridge and chattering away at our dog! Drove her crazy. After that trip, we got under and filled in every space around pipes, etc, with expanding foam and in the basement jammed steel wool in gaps between the basement compartments and covered the heating vents to the basement with fine wire screen and also took off the fresh air intake cover and covered the back of it with the same fine mesh wire. Never have had a problem with rodents of any kind since and we regularly inspect. Oh, and just a note of how they can destroy things if left alone, when we had some repair work done, years later, the techs found a stash of dried mushrooms in the wiring harness. There were enough mushrooms to fill a plastic grocery shopping bag!

RE: Big truck passing

We too have felt that when we had a short bed F250 towing a 32' TT, then we switched to a Hensley Arrow (not advertising it), and that push stopped. We now have an F350 long bed dually towing a 35' FW and never ever feel it.
