RE: Disc Brakes - Saved me $$$$

Are the disk brakes a retro fit? How do they work with trucks power thru cord? If a DIY job, how hard and long does it take? What info is needed to order them? I really like Learjets set up. TIA My old trailer I got the kit from here... Also, check out Etrailer...both of these sites have plenty of info.

RE: Disc Brakes - Saved me $$$$

The problem I have with my Kodiak 8K and Dexter 3.5K is they are both single piston calipers and they wear the outer pad WAYYY faster than the inner. I keep the slide pins properly lubed. They LOOK impressive. Only negative I see is the hub cap is not threaded to allow for oil bath. The disc (rotor?) part slides over the lugs, so I guess you could change the hub to one with an oil bath.

RE: Disc Brakes - Saved me $$$$

yes, factory Jayco installed upgrade option. They are Dexter brakes. One pin and the pads come out....hope they last...they are @ $500 for a set of pads for 4 wheels at Etrailer.

RE: Disc Brakes - Saved me $$$$

they are actually 4 piston calipers, the line connects at the inner top, crosses over and then there is another crossover line at the bottom for the inner calipers with another two pistons. They are much smoother and stronger than my single piston calipers on the old trailer. Went from 6.5 on the brakes to 4.0 Just looking at my own picture and thinking about it...This set up eliminates the pins the calipers usually ride on and the stick problem they can have. here is another picture...

RE: Disc Brakes - Saved me $$$$

I agree disc brakes only...I converted my old trailer and ordered the new trailer with disc brakes...they are great!

RE: Residential vs Gas/Electric Fridge?

new residential Whirlpool in my RV...pretty efficient. Inverter shows only 200 watts while cooling.

RE: Brakes, dilemma.

Clamp on DC amp meter would be a better test.

RE: onan 5500

The old generators that ran 1800 rpm and had big pistons will last longer than the smaller 3600 rpm of similar output mostly due to the speed, but also due to smaller parts having to undergo the same workload that wear faster than the big-ole parts. Nothing you can do about this difference, just know it so you do not compare them. The Onan 5500 motor runs at 2400 rpm...the generator head is belt drive and turns 3600 rpm

RE: Am I over the Max 5fer length?

I think it would be helpful for a definition on how a 5th Wheel trailer is measured? Is it from the pin to the bumper or nose cap to the bumper?

RE: New RV USB plugs, what amperage are they?

OP here. I wasn't looking for a standard, just tell me what's currently installed. I've installed plenty of USB ports among many other things in RVs, so that's no big deal. I think the answer is no one knows...not even the the tester if you must know.

RE: Tesla with a generator on a hitch haul

two things stick out in the thread...ignorance and people afraid of changes.

RE: BEV as a toad behind diesel pusher

the problem is if you are still turning the electric drive motor while going down the interstate that is not good for efficiency. I was looking at towing my Nissan Leaf BEV, which is FWD only, with a tow dolly and haven't found any problems with that. Yes you can use the normal park 50 amp for charging or just plug into a regular outlet. Yes, it will be slow using L1 (120V) charging...but its not like most people are driving around all day.

RE: Tank treatment that can restore sensor accuracy?

Best thing I have found is to occasionally travel with tanks 1/2 or so and dump immediately after arriving. The sloshing seems to help clean everything...doesn't always work...but helps most of the time for me...over the last 20 years and 3 different RVs this is what I have found.

RE: 2021 Jayco Embark 37K

Nothing? How about the Spartan K1 chassis in general with the Cummins 360hp?
