RE: Trailer Brakes

Resurrecting this thread. As I have been tied up looking after my grand-daughter, have been unable to work on the trailer until today. With old 7 pin cable and new one which I replaced today, the lights etc work, but none of the brakes operate (tandem axle). I hooked up a brand new battery and pulled the breakaway switch. The brakes did not activate at any wheel. I have checked the wiring at the front of the trailer and was only able to go under the trailer and do a visual on the brake wiring to all wheels, and everything looked OK (I know this is not definitive). So, if the brakes are wired in parallel, which it appears they are, and if all brakes are inoperative, does this mean the issue is in the main cable somewhere prior to the first wheel connection? Just trying to get some advice on exactly where I should concentrate on looking. Unfortunately, I am still doing babysitting duties so my time is limited to work on this. And the best part,I only have until this next weekend to figure this out. Thanks in advance for any help, Marv Not trying to state the obvious, but you don't have a separate battery for the breakaway system do you? My trailer had that and when I tested the breakaway switch it didn't work, which is how I discovered the separate battery (which was dead). I've since wired the system to the house battery. Just trying to help you avoid a mistake I made. :)

RE: New River Gorge NP

We are just finishing up a visit to the newest national park, in West Virginia, and it is interesting. The small town of Fayetteville is charming with some nice eateries. There are several outfitters in the area, for whitewater and hiking/climbing. We found a great campground, Rifrafter’s in Fayetteville, that is small, clean, quiet, affordable and can accommodate anything from a tent to class A motor home. Stayed at RifRafters a couple of weeks ago. We really enjoyed that campground, nice small and quiet. The owners are very friendly. They do strictly enforce their $10 per hour early check in fee. I asked tham about it and they said they had to because people kept coming earlier and earlier and they needed time to check and clean the sites before new campers came in. The National park was really nice but we didn't have enough time to explore the entire park. We went to the Canyon Rim Visitor Center, looked at the bridge and the views there, then drove the Fayette Station Road (excellent) and stopped to hike the Kaymoor Trail. We would have loved to explore the other visitor centers and visit Thurmond but we were finshing a 4 week trip from Florida up to Massachusetts and return.

RE: Parking permits in the GSMNP

Would fee-based parking permits include those people who have lifetime senior citizens or "golden" passes provided by federal parks across the US? According to the FAQ list from the park, the passes like the golden passes will not cover the parking fee. Everyone will have to pay.

RE: RV Queen mattress

Another option is to get a thick memory foam topper and place it on top of your existing mattress. Makes a world of difference and also a lot cheaper. That made a big difference for us.

RE: commercial campground near Arches National Park

We stayed at Spanish Trail RV Park last May. We would go back there I'll second this. We really enjoyed Spanish Trail.

RE: Awning Fabric Repair

There is a clear repair tape available. Camo awning repair tape. XFasten awning repair tape Those work well. What works better is to replace the black fabric with a lighter color such as sand from Toughtop. I sure would like to meet the idiot who came up with the idea that a black awning fabric is a good idea. It's like sitting under radiant heaters when the sun is beating on it. Toughtop Awnings are excellent. I went with the light grey abd it worked well.

RE: refrig

yes I do have 12v battery inside the camper and IT will stay or have a good charge on the battery .. so I guess the only thing I can see that must be the wind ,, I only see a spark to light the gas // IF there is a pilot light I can not find one .. Thanks to all for the help Do you have any error codes showing on the refrigerator display? I have a Camplite 21BHS from LivinLite and the refrigerator (Dometic) has always worked well while driving.

RE: Best Quality Travel Trailers

Thor did not exist prior to Airstream as it was formed when Airstream was acquired from Beatrice Foods in 1980. The two owners, Wade Thompson and Peter Orthwein, brought Airstream back from the brink. Thor began to grow after that, but was just Airstream at the beginning.

To the right of the To: line you can click on "CC/BCC". That will open up both the CC and BCC lines. This is on the Yahoo Mail web site.
