RE: VanLeigh insert molding size by Tiffin Fifth wheel

Get a roll, and replace the whole side. It is not expensive, so don't buy the cheapest oem type quality. The better trim won't shrink as much, and pull away like the pic indicates. JerryThis is very true. I bought some of the thicker aftermarket trim, and it was quite a bit thicker than OEM so it fit the slot much tighter. Jerry speaks truth. :) I bought 50' of Recpro 1" off Ebay for #13.

RE: VanLeigh insert molding size by Tiffin Fifth wheel

Yep, 1" should work just fine.

RE: VanLeigh insert molding size by Tiffin Fifth wheel

Where does the insert molding go? Roof, sidewall, fifth wheel overhang? Mine trailer has different sizes for different locations. What width does the channel measure?

RE: VanLeigh by Tiffin Fifth wheel

Well no sh*t Sherlock. The point was they care way more about making money than than they do about the problems, issues, and just plain **** workmanship that came with the POS RV they suckered you into buying, and then they forgot about you in microseconds after you signed the sales agreement.Well, sometimes you need to iterate your points rather than assuming, you know what they say about assume, everyone thinks as you do. Some of us don't demonize regulated capitalism.

RE: VanLeigh by Tiffin Fifth wheel

... RVs are a by product of the main business, making money.Wow, who'd a thunk. News flash: if they don't make money, they won't be making trailers very long.

RE: Anode Rod Wear

Those rods look good, if each had a years use. You can easily get another year of use out of either of those. Looks like 80% or more left, and should be able to use down to 25-50% with still good protection. Your money, you decide, but changing to aluminum not necessary. JerryI agree, I switched to magnesium because I was getting a lot of the slimy aluminum compound in the bottom of the tank. Changing to magnesium took care of that issue.

RE: Anode Rod Wear

Ours always erodes quickest nearest the threads, which I believe is the reason: closest connection. But just a guess.

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

We met a guy in Tennessee who was towing with a lifted truck, looked like 6-8 inch lift. We noticed it because he had converted his trailer to a 5th wheel, a well done conversion with lots of reinforcing. He said it was necessary because he said it simply wouldn't tow safely as a bumper pull. He said it consistently scared the heck out of him. His buddy was a certified welder and they fabbed up a very good looking conversion to his trailer. I certainly don't see many lifted trucks towing trailers.

RE: Not Able To Download Apple Music In Free

FWIW, you may get more suggestions on a dedicated Apple site/forum.

RE: This net is dying!

I started using Roboform back when they first came out: 1999. I was serious when I said "decades". :)

RE: This net is dying!

Oh my! I too have a couple of sites that are so old that I have forgotten the pass word for. What a mess. Something to turn over to my nerd daughter I guess.A great reason to spend the money on a password manager like Roboform. I have sites on there that I haven't visited in decades, but Roboform still has the passwords on file.

RE: Anybody use Aliexpress??

I have used Aliexpress in the past to order spray nozzles for our sewer plant. The prices of ones available were on the order of $100+ per nozzle. I bought 12 from an Aliexpress company for a dozen for less than $100, and they worked excellently. The shipping took a bit, but not longer than they said it would. Use a one-time card and you should be fine.

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

It's a GOOD feeling, having wealthy forum friends, that could help me out in a time of need!!!:B JerryShoot Jerry, you can have all 4 of my piggy banks, but full disclosure: 2 of 'em are only half full, and mostly pennies. They used to be full, but I've given too many "Two Cents Worth" of opinions. :)

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

I can't imagine the price for converting a trailer to that system... :EThink of a lot, then add another decimal point. :)

RE: Hydraulic glide out

How new is this trailer, motorhome? 2002 hitchhiker 5th wheel. This older style Hyd. slides the usual cause was one of the slide rams leaking internally. Depending on the Brand of the Slide system determines the procedure for troubleshooting the rams. DougThank you, I had looked at his profile and totally missed seeing the trailer. Doh.

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

Every person I've seen that has posted, has had nothing but positive things to say. But you kind of expect that about something you've spent so much money on. :) Whether they're worth the money is, IMO, kind of a tough call. If you plan to keep the trailer for 10 years or more, and travel many miles, and you don't mind spending the money, then it might not be an issue for you. I got rid of the poor Lippert EquaFlex equalizers and installed the EZ-Flex from Dexter, and heavier rated springs. To me the trailer rides very well, but it's all pretty subjective. OTOH, I doubt that there's any question about the performance of the disc brakes. That strictly boils down to "Do I want to spend the money?".

RE: The end of an era.

Uh, this was just a joke thread, not meant to get the whole thing going again. LOL Just a light hearted search for a chuckle. :)

RE: This net is dying!

Well, all I can attest to is that it works for me. I wasn't aware that the picture hosting for this site was also on Imgur.

RE: The end of an era.

Yes, after 5 years, no more Tesla semi thread. Thread title pretty much tongue in cheek. :)
