RE: Front Cap

We had the same issue so I got a piece of sunblock material and attached it to the end of the carport at the top. The bottom is held by a thin line attached to each bottom corner and tying off to a small cleat on each side. When leaving, I untie the bottom lines and drive under it. So far it has worked well for keeping the sun off as it faces due west.

RE: 5th wheel front tripod

They help to keep you from whacking into the pin. They are also good at separating you and some cash.

RE: Black tank flush overfill

Actually, you need to fix how you flush the black tank. Things can go very wrong when attention to detail is lost. When flushing, if anything distracts you, turn off the flush line. You got lucky once. The next time could get very ugly.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

Still here also! I still post when I see something I can help on but steer away from a lot of questions that scream "I learned nothing from life so far and I need someone to hug me". There are, unfortunately, way too many that bought an rv and thought it requires no work at all and then make very stupid mistakes which complicate things. Then they get upset that there is no finger snap or button click to fix it. We have curtailed our camping to smaller high end spots because we got tired of folks that think we absolutely need to know them. At 70+ I still prefer to meet folks that are meat eating, leather wearing and fossil fuel burning. When we lived in a different state, I had someone with a petition to condemn rain forest logging and blamed me for helping it because I had a Mitsubishi car with "lots of exotic wood in it" even though there was not even a splinter of wood in the car. He also condemned my leather belt but got offended when I pointed out that his shoes were leather. Lying and deception are things that exclude you from even my acquaintance list. Sorry for the rant but this is my take and I am so glad that I am closer to the end than the beginning of life because I cry every time I see what morons are doing to what used to be a wonderful country to live in.

RE: Low tree branches in my development ..Update

Twice a year the wife and I go down our road and trim the branches. We only need 12' but if we needed 14 we would still do it. In nine years we have not had any complaints. At first a pole lopper would work but we are up to a ladder in the pickup bed and a chain saw. We are lucky that there is not a lot of traffic.

RE: Ameri-camp lit 2006 25/8tt manual

Manuel lives in Mexico. If you want a manual for your unit you will find it has no useful info. Instead, look at each appliance and get the name and model number of each one and go to the manufacturers web site. You will find everything about that particular part there. There are no plumbing, wiring or structural manuals for RV's. You can make diagrams for your unit with lots of effort and if you happen to run across someone with the same unit, theirs will be different than yours..

RE: 1997 Holiday rambler Endeavor LE Ford 460

With an average of 600 miles a year that is a lot of sitting. I put 150 miles a year on my riding mower. Broken down another way, that is two trips a year of 150 miles. 150 out, 150 back. No engines do well with that little use, how much camping use, as in "we used it for the season at Bill's campground" is putting no time on the rolling parts. That old motor needs a top to bottom lookover as all that new stuff you are seeing was probably put on to impress you and make it look well taken care of. Have a trusted mechanic do a complete inspection of all the engine and chassis systems. When he is done you will know exactly where you stand. You now know what a "driveway guarantee" is. Good enough to get it off of the driveway.

RE: Missing floor!

Your problem makes me think you traveled with the trailer in the rain and either the slide was not completely seated against the gaskets or the lower seal has deteriorated and allowed water to get at the side of the non waterproof flooring while you were pulling it. Unfortunately, not an easy fix. On a different note, if you had it in outdoor storage for four years you are way overdue for some serious roof and trim resealing. Ours sits under a carport when home but we travel enough that it sees a lot of sun and it is inevitable that a yearly inspection turns up some at least questionable sealant.

RE: Water Issue

All good advice above. Be aware that some campgrounds/campers will create a big fuss if you try to drain that fresh tank onto the ground. Years ago we got thrown out of a campground for just that reason! Cracked open the fresh tank drain and let it dribble out while we took the dogs for a long walk. Came back to a posse of campers screaming. Where we were was experiencing a drought so we figured there might be one green site. The owner said we had to leave immediately. No one wanted to hear that it was potable water. We thought we heard banjos as we were driving out.

RE: Older Reese hitch

The reese hitch is a good hitch but takes a bit of fine tuning. The brackets are not interchangeable. If you use the reese hitch invest in the anti sway that can be added to them easily. You did not give the wheelbases of he trucks and I would suggest using whichever truck has the longer wheelbase. You will still get some wag from the trailer as that length trailer will be marginal for either truck. We can hope that you did lots of homework on your payload capacity on the two trucks as that may or may not be an issue but not knowing the particulars it is impossible to make a determination. Check the yellow and white stickers on the door jamb of each truck as those numbers supersede any on line or brochure numbers. Good luck and keep us posted.

RE: brake shoes

You did not say how old the trailer is but an awful lot of trailers have been produced with manually adjusted brakes and then lots more with reverse adjusting brakes. The newer forward adjusting brakes tend to be better but a yearly check when you repack the bearings and put a new seal in can give you an insight into how well adjusted your brakes are. You seem to have one that was adjusted too loose compared to the others and that is why it still has material left. When was the last time you checked them?

RE: Inverter Chassis Ground

So this is a double post.

RE: Tv inverter chassis ground

The aluminum frame of your 5er may or may not be bonded to the actual chassis of the trailer. I am presuming you are meaning the aluminum framing in the walls because you did not say what aluminum frame and unless it is a very unusual 5er you have a steel frame under it. Unless very specific procedures are followed aluminum will likely become a sacrificial anode in your electrical system leading you to find new grounds as each one erodes.

RE: 1996 fleetwood wilderness 37'

The owners manual is useless. Look at the appliances and get model numbers and go to the site of the company that makes each appliance. You will never find a wiring diagram because they do not exist for the consumer. A 26 year old camper has probably had many modifications to it. As much as I think there is a lot of misinformation on it, Youtube is good for some things. Start from the top down and look for things like how to inspect sealant on the roof and windows, inspecting for leaks inside and checking running gear and tires. Some manufacturers have videos on how to check and maintain their products. Just don't expect much support from the original trailer manufacturer On edit: Include the power center as an appliance. Make sure you have no 120 coming into the trailer before you pull the unit out to check the model number.

Not a thing said that is worthy of a reply except to toedtoes who does not even know they are a member. Brilliant!

RE: Replace curved side windows with straight windows.

Anything can be made, it only depends on how deep your pockets are. Being that you want frames and glass both curved complicates the issue. I would hazard a guess that flat frames would not work on a curved surface. Bring one of the windows that you want to be copied to a glass company that does architectural work. They will take a 3d contour of it and then they can make it any size or configuration and opening you want. Being that it is a custom build, you will probably see a 2k to 3k bill for a set of windows. I presume you will need one for each side and that is why I said set.

RE: Life member logo missing

I would guess all three of you would not mind if your annual membership logo did not show up either.

Life member logo missing

Ok, here we go again. When will the Life member logo file be back? As stated before, I will keep making this post until the issue is fixed. Only took a short time to delete my last post although a lot longer than it would take to put the file back in.
