RE: Saving the Clutch

I believe there are kits out there that make it so you can use low without engaging the front axle. This is what makes maneuvering with a manual much easier on the clutch.

RE: BedRug with hitch

Why do you need a bed rug in your truck. Part of the puck system is a sprayed in bed liner which in my opinion is far superior to a bed rug in most instances.

RE: Chevy/GMC bed height

That is what I was afraid of. It looks like I may do some cosmetic work on the old truck and keep on driving it.

Chevy/GMC bed height

Anybody out there have a 20/21 Chevy or GMC 2500 double cab standard bed 4wheel drive. If so what is the height of the bed rails from the ground. I don't want to order a new truck if it is too tall for my 5th wheel. Nobody at the dealership can tell me and they don't have one in stock.

RE: Something I've not seen before.

That is an awful lot of rust for a 2 month old trailer.

RE: Stereo/Radio install

When I built experimental cars we were required to solder the crimped connections on anything that we made or modified.

RE: Where to buy a window for Open range travel trailer

It is easiest if you get the window number first. It is usually on a sticker on the frame of the window. You will have to remove the window to find it. A good source is

RE: Ultra Sound wireless LP tank sensor , Bluetooth to phone app

Like everything there are positives and negatives. On the plus side as long as it is located properly on the bottom of the tank it gives you a very good reading of the propane in the tank. On the negative side the battery life is not very good. If you are full time and having to refill often then just remember to change the battery every 6 or 8 months and you will be good. I am not full time and use very little propane so the battery life is shorter than the time it takes me to use the cylinder of propane. I have rectified this problem by making a remote battery system that uses AA batteries mounted where they can be changed without removing the cylinder. The sensor is thick enough that the tank has to be elevated slightly to prevent crushing it. They provide feet to do this but I am not impressed with them and made my own. I also had one of the sensors lost the contact pad when I took it to be filled. Mopeka tells me it is not repairable but I will have to replace it as it is long past warranty.

RE: furnace problems

You've answered your own question. 11 Volts does not turn the fan fast enough for the furnace to light.

RE: Veteran broke down in Pine Bluff WY

Looks like wheel lugs were not torque'd correctly. That caused the lugs to break off and the wheels fall off. Lugs should be fairly easy to find but I would inspect the hubs real well to make sure they weren't damaged.

RE: will a flat tire cause my fifth wheel to lean

And we all have to share the road with people who would ask such a question.

RE: Collapsible ladder?

Been carrying This One compact and stores well. This is the one I like. It has a much high weight rating(330 lbs) than some of them. Some are only rated at 225 lbs. and I exceed that even if I am not carrying anything.

RE: back up and side view cameras

Are they wired or wireless cameras on the trailer. Your truck has 2 camera inputs just above the 7-way connector on the back of your truck. If you connect the 2 rear view cameras of the trailer to these it should work.

RE: Battery problem

What happens if you let the battery charge longer? 30 mins of driving is not enough to bring a battery up from 12.0V to fully charged. A fully charged battery is 12.7V.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Overflowing When Turning

The 1-1/4 in line would be the gravity fill on most of the older trailers. Do you have a gravity fill? If so my guess is that the tube has become disconnected.

RE: Tire Inflation - What RU Using

Most all of the major companies that make battery powered tools now have air compressors. If you have any of these tools you can buy the air compressor that goes with the other tools you have.

RE: Fifth wheel trailer suspension

Either way it will cost way more to do than the trailer is worth.

RE: Eternabonding the windows.....

It sounds like it can't hurt anything and might help if you are having water intrusion in that location. When I added an outside vent for the M/W to my trailer I did basically the same thing but used aluminium foil tape instead of Eternabond. If I had thought about the Eternabond I probably would have gone that route.

RE: Mysterious roof vent -- 2014 Montana

I vents the attic space above the ceiling. There is probably on near the front as well. Just in a house you have to vent under the roof to keep moisture from building up.

RE: Why Didn't I Think of This Before?

On of the RV u-tube couples showed using a water bandit with a short hose to add water to there tank from jugs of water that they carried. I think it was Getawaycouple but not 100% sure.
