RE: AirSafe 5er hitch

Well, I bought it. 25k with the Binkley style head. Needs some touch up but that is easy. Best part is I couldn't have bought 1/2 of a goosebox for what I spent. Now to find that big toy hauler. My Wife is getting worse ( Parkinson's ) and really needs her golf car as her mobility scooter just doesn't work well on some terrains.

AirSafe 5er hitch

I've run across a 20k AirSafe brand air ride type hitch but I've never heard of them. TrailerSaver is the only brand I know anything about or see mentioned on rv forums. Anyone have any knowledge of these as I am looking to go to a heavier toy hauler& need to probly replace my 18k Patriot B&W which I really like.

RE: 2019 Duramax service exhaust soon

Based on OP's post, I'd place $$ that the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) is plugged up There is also 2 oxygen sensors , one on each side of the DPF filter if like my 2012.

RE: Impact of fuel prices on travel

We are heading to our place in Arkansas tomorrow & its 330 miles. We plan on 10 days there then head home. I'll feal the pain and I need to go back at least 2 more trips to finish my project. I haven't decided yet what price is too steep. $6 bucks or better may be the line in the sand.

RE: Step to reach hitch pin

I use a 2 step folding plastic ladder. I stand it beside the rear wheel and reach over to the handle to lock it in place or unlock it. When travelling I put it on the floor in the back seat. When not travelling it goes into the bed of the truck. I think mine is a three step, but it's the same idea. I also find many uses for it around the campsite as well as on the road. I'm only 195 pounds, but I am 89 years old so that counts for something. I use a 3 step also & it comes in handy pretty regular.

RE: GFI electrical question

I was having a GFCI tripping quiet often & replaced and kept tripping. I checked the wires in panel & found the neutral on the gnd bus and the gnd wire on neutral. Swapped wires to correct bus ( these should be set up as subfeed panels ) & no more nuisance trips. Why it had not done this for 8 years since new don't have a clue. Just something to check.

RE: Advice on parking pad size

You’ll never wish your pad was smaller, but you might wish it was bigger. That's the truth . Go at least 16x44. I have a covered 20x45 & allways wishing I had gone 24 wide. It's just money.

RE: B.R. AC not blowing cold air

Refrigerant leak, locked compressor, bad run capacitor, bad thermostat, open overload just for starters.

RE: AC doesn’t work after lithium/inverter install

As I recall you should not be using the start run capacitor with the soft start… 3 tons The RUN capacitor stays or it won't start. I looked at a few soft start install schematics and all unwired the start cap /pt cr. I respectfully disagree… 3 tons Single phase semi-hermetic,Rotary, or scroll compressor will not start without a RUN capacitor but it will run after achieveing about 70% operating RPM without it. A Start Capacitor is a booster and only stays in the circuit briefly or it will be damaged. Most all RV AC's use a capillary tube metering device and should never need any hard start capacitor type accessories if getting proper voltage/current OP probably unhooked the incorrect lead from RUN capacitor

RE: black mold

Time to move on. It would have to be really super cheap & you are prepared for some repair time/money.. Black mold is bad.

RE: Texas Boys! Last Call To Winterize!!!!!!!

At 6am it is 22 here in Gilmer. Heck, my peach trees were starting to make buds. Yesterday I did go out to the farm & get the 5er ready. Drained & blew out water lines, drained water heater, antifreeze in traps,plug up all my heat tapes on outside faucets, hookup the extra propane bottles, & set heat at 55 ..

RE: 5th wheel purchase advise - Solitude or Jayco

We've had our Jayco Eagle for 10 years now and nearly trouble free. To me it's boils down to the dealer I think will give the best service. My buddy bought a GD about 2 years ago & had lots of problems the dealer should have fixed before saying it was ready to be picked up. Took forever to get all resolved. My dealer had our 5er ready to go & the one issue we had later with a slide motor was resolved in a week. On the Jayco , Northpoints are really close to thier top of line and Pinnacles are the #1.. our Eagle is middle line. But still nice.

RE: hydraulics in cold weather

"What would you do in a state park?" Clean what I could and throw it in a dumpster then kick gravel over it. What do you do every place your auto drips fluids on the ground? You can't make this **** up ! My friend owns a sawmill/treating plant and during one state environmental inspection the lady inspector fined him because she found a millwright replacing a bad hydraulic hose that had ruptured and fluid was on the ground where he was working. She then tells him he could better control the dust on his plants dirt drives by spraying oil. The environment folks can be abserd

RE: Generators: Cummins 4500 vs Westinghouse vs. ?????

Ive had a 4000 Champion open frame for 10 years now. I use it pretty often and it's never failed to start. Yes it's heavy & loud as it's not one of these new enclosed Inverter types . Just saying my Champion experience has been really great. Our "genny" needs are changing so I'm probably going with 2 duel fuel Inverter Champions as soon as I solve my golf car towing issue.
