RE: Grey tank ABS pipe leak

I found a miracle tape to fix a similar leak when 2500 miles from home. Same small drip. Silicone tape was the answer. As you wrap it tight is fuses itself to the layer before it and has crazy pressure stats. It's made by several different companies and is available at WM, hardware stores, and of course Amazon. The link below is the Rustoleum version but there are several others. I always travel with some now. It's called rescue tape. clicky I also keep this on hand, house and rv. I “temporarily” fixed a drain pipe 5 years ago with rescue tape under a vanity.

RE: Half ton towing

Gosh golly gee Batman, there must be thousands and thousands of overloaded Silverado’s, F150s, Ram 1500s and Tundras pulling trailers out there. Ohhh, the humanity!

RE: Do I need my WD bars just to move in the driveway?

some of you really need to go back and re read the op's original question before pontificating. :B Yup, it's not like the guy is doing 60 MPH in his back yard. Amen

RE: Getting my trailer settled for the winter

Stabilizers are not meant to take weight off the suspension. That’s a good way to twist the frame.

Antenna but the TV has only been on once in the last 2 years.

RE: Add Awning To Slide?

Don’t see why not. A lot would depend on the skills of the installer. My question would be what is the effect on the slide when the wind buffets the awning? Is there room to add the awning over the slide so it is attached to the trailer?

RE: Running lights on cars

It seems I have found more nonsense than common sense in my post. The idea that on sunny day the lights would make a difference maybe not so much but on the gray day in a misty rain near dusk they definitely could save many lives and do. All GM products have had them for years but the other American vehicles don't it seems. I really can't believe some of the reply's here as being nothing short of nonsensical. After 16 years on this forum, you oughta be pretty used to the nonsense meted out. ;-)

RE: What causes soft floors

Our camper has a sandwich floor and there is a tunnel in it for wiring to go to the other side from the load center. It definitely deflects when stepped on but hasn’t gotten worse over the years. You may be seeing the same thing in some of the units you have looked at.

RE: Why ? trailer jacks so tall ?

Have you tried turning it 90 degrees? I did that and it worked fine.

RE: Skyline RV forum

7 year old thread resurrected from the archive. Seeing that Skyline sold out to Evergreen in 2014, who then went out of business in 2016, 7 years is about right. Evergreen took a mediocre product and morphed it into total junk. Fairly common course of action in the RV industry. Sorry, I have to disagree. Our Skyline/Evergreen definitely isn’t total junk and has been relatively trouble free for over 6 years. It’s been cross country twice and up and down the East coast many times. We average several thousand miles a year. It lives outside on a mountain. A lot of folks on here just love to trash RVs. Perhaps another form of recreation would make them happier.

RE: 2021 Outback & Mini Max

I’d vote for a pop up vs. a travel trailer. Just not enough vehicle especially with the CVT. That tow rating is more for a utility type trailer. I’ve had Subarus for the last 30 years, my kids drive ‘em as do my in laws. Absolutely love ours, but I wouldn’t tow anything more tha than a pop up.

RE: Opinions on 2014-2018 Travel Trailers

We like our Dart. Has been relatively trouble free.

RE: Nice looking small trailer rig

The dealer did a horrible job of setting up the WD hitch. Can't say I've seen a sedan of any kind towing a TT in the US since the 70s. Yeah what a joke, I would like to see a sedan pulling a 4000 lb trailer. It’s done in Europe all the time. First trip to England, about 30 years ago, we saw a VW Golf pulling a 2 horse trailer. As far as Caravans (travel trailers), mostly pulled by Mercedes and Volvo estate wagons, occasionally a small truck. Weren’t too many SUVs back then.

RE: Help buying a small travel trailer

Can we get some information about build quality with the listed units above? Thanks Build quality is all over the lot. As said, 2 identical units next to each other can vary greatly in their fit and finish. All of them will have basically the same appliances such as the fridge, AC, water heater, etc. I would look at and compare: Cargo capacity Fridge size Tank size, though if going to full service campgrounds, it’s not that important. Interior and exterior storage Bath layout. Can you sit on the pot comfortably, turn around in the shower, brush your teeth (some don’t have a separate sink)? Type of AC. Roof mount is better. 2 tanks of propane Good luck and happy hunting.
