RE: Rubber Roof Replacement

Getting my edpm roof replaced as we speak. Insurance is paying Ca dollars and it is just short of 12k. Mine is getting replaced down to the wood. I don’t know if the layers are individually replaceable or if they are bonded together as one. That could be the difference in cost (5k vs 12k). I looked at two providers and the price was about the same.

RE: tire wrench

I carry a gorilla wrench. Thin wall fits all……… Also carry a socket for both tv and trailer and a 1/2” 24v impact.

RE: 40 or 45 ft 5fer, any difference

Moving down the highway, length is not a problem. The challenge is fueling (have to stick to truck stops or a very open stations), entrance roads to rv parks and maneuvering within the rv park. My rig is 42’ and pulling with a SRW CC short box Ram 3500. So I have a decent radius. My problem is I have nearly 16” of rear overhang. Tail swing on my rig is horrendous, as is many of the larger rigs in this size range. Even though I realize it is present, it has still bitten me in the @ss three times now. So, look for the shortest rear over hang as possible no matter how long you are. If I could do it over again, I would look in the 10-12 overhang area. Even a 53’ box van big rig only has about 10’ of overhang with about a 72’ overall length. King pin to rear axle length is also a consideration. The longer that measurement is, the more room you need to turn that combo. Larger rigs are challenging to say the least, and some rv parks are a bit unforgiving. I drive a 63’ transfer truck for a living and don’t have as much trouble with it as I do my 57’ of rv and truck. Good luck on your quest. And safe travels.

RE: manual retraction of slides

On a hydraulic system there is a manual override mechanism you attach a drill/driver to and run it in. Same for the stabilizers as well. Got big problems if you are there however.
