RE: Crossroads Zinger 18' vs Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pup 16

No way would I ever purchase a camper with a window A/C, very poor design to make them work. Other then that I would get the floor plan that works best. I would avoid anything with a foam core floor as well. Well with a statement like that, I guess all the window A/C's in stick and brick houses are a poor design too, eh? I find mine works like it's supposed to, no leaks and roof rattles.

RE: RV window seal/glazing

I got mine for my 1975 clipper at They have a lot of styles. Is that for real? $1200.00 for an RV entry door? $650.00 for an acrylic skylight bubble?, $64.00 fo a 16oz can of spray adhesive? The prices sure don't appear to be all-rite lol Ya the prices for the skylights I was looking at the other day made me think if it ever breaks, I'll cover the hole and seal it.

RE: Do cellphone boosters work for RV camping with poor signal?

From my experience, I've had 3/4 bars when nothing showed on the phone itself. Used a WeBoost with the little 6 inch antenna and about 10 feet of cable. Set the antenna on the middle of the truck roof and bingo, it works.

RE: What's under the coroplast?

What's under the Coloplast? A few pounds of sawdust and other debris, screws and other fasteners, possibly a half eaten sammich, and a whole lot of shoddy workmanship. I have no doubt about that. When I took the strainers off my kitchen, bathroom and shower head, I got about a cup of wood chips and sawdust. So I would suspect there may even be a dead body or two under there.

RE: Rain X on Solar panel

The only problem I see if the solar panel is laid flat level on the roof, any type of waxy oily protectant will cause water drops to group together. When the sun comes out, those water drops can become magnifying before they dry up. I don't know if that would cause any damage to the underlying solar grid, just a thought.

RE: Trailer Tongue Coupler Wear?

Complete lack of basic maintenance on the ball and hitch.

RE: Can I use this bearing?

Looking at the second pic there is a slight "blue ring" but nothing I'd get excited over. Super clean the bear and re pack it. Don't over tighten it.

RE: LED Awning Light Strip Does not work on Brand New Trailer

OK, had the same problem and found the solution, the light switch inside has to be on, but to make it work, you have to use the remote. You would think that the off/on switch would give you that option

RE: First Tow with 2500 Ram

I have a tow caravan going to lake Powell next month with a friend towing his ski boat with his new Roush Ford 150. I tow a fully loaded Wells Cargo trailer weighing in at 6,500 lbs wth my CTD. I told him I run about 68 mph and just purr along but he says he will stay at 60 mph. I probably will have the best towing experience and mileage ever :) Spotify on and a lot of chillin. Hopefully that Ford will keep up or do the best it can You can likely hook him up behind your trailer and not notice too much different.

RE: Any railroad aficionados here...?

I like watching the snowblower and plow trains, saw a couple where the snowbanks just stopped the train dead in its tracks.

RE: Battery wing nut size

OP here So, I was going to need wing nuts for one of the batteries. Turns out it is stone dead. So, I will see if a local auto service shop can charge it as mine can't. If not,t he need for wing nuts is the least of my worries. If the battery is too far gone, hook it up in parallel with a good one and then hook up the charger. Some chargers need to "see" some voltage before they will begin charging.

RE: Battery wing nut size

On some batteries the positive are 3/8' and the negative are 5/16", others, both are 5/16. I keep a couple of each in the trailer spare parts bin.

RE: Trailering

On the other hand, dragging around another tank that weighs something along with 55 gals of fuel, about 500lbs, definitely doesn't increase your fuel mileage.

RE: Outdoor latches

For those annoying sticky locks, go find some "Houdini", we used it year round at work and it never let us down. It smells like orange or citrus juice and you don't need a lot, just a one second squirt.

RE: Misplaced Keys

Well I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later with only one set of keys. Misplaced and of course she's all closed up for the winter with the door handles and deadbolts locked as well as the hatches. Any non destructive suggestions? I'm pretty sure the keys will turn up but DW wants something out of the trailer. Thanks for looking. Well that's what happens when you rely on one set of keys. Why don't you have a spare set that stays in the tow vehicle. I do, for boat and ATV and travel trailer.

RE: Swivel TV wall mount

Well a little apprehensive this morning, poking holes can be like poking an angry bear. Took a 1/16th bit and made sure only 3/4 of an inch was sticking out of the chuck. Then by luck I noted the staple holes used to staple the wall panel to the studs. Bingo. Did the left, center and right hole within about 3/4 of an inch of what I figured to be the center of the stud. Nailed center dead on. Used 3 #10 by 1" screws to hold the swivel mount to the wall. Tight as a snare drum, attached the TV and it swivels around nicely and parks tight against the wall. Thanks for all the tips. Makes life easy. That studfinder video was eye opening too.

RE: Swivel TV wall mount

Ya, I think that small TV weights about 2-3 lbs at the most.

Ok, thanks, that gives me a couple of options to start.

Swivel TV wall mount

I have a small 19 inch LED TV I'd like to mount to the wall where it says, "Mount LED TV here". I have the muti swivel mount, the part that gets attached to the wall is vertical with 3 screw holes. Now, question of the hour, any idea how wide the mounting plate behind the wall is? I've done the old "tap tap" to hear roughly where the center is, by the sounds of it, it's only a wall stud. Of course, call the company and it's not much help. I don't have a stud finder either. I suppose I could make a couple of tiny 1/16ths holes and hope for the best. Any pointers, thanks.
