RE: How screwed am I ? Boneheaded jacking mistake

I would leave it alone and not worry about it. But if you want to try to repair I would use a big channel-lock or adjustable wrench and bend it back. You could also try just a hammer and some careful pounding.

RE: Anyone run new wires under the slide?

never worked on something like that. Amazon has a plethora of RCA plugs if you can find a way to reuse the existing wires. Just do a search for RCA plugs

RE: Water pump sucking air

Does the tank have a gravity fill port on the outside or is it pressure filled from the water hookup point? If it's pressure filled from the water hookup point are you sure water is making it to the tank? If gravity fill does water come out the vent hose when full? Or does it only spit water back out around the hose?

RE: Roof Replacement

Doug, are you talking about the popup tent trailer in your sig? If so does do you know if the dealer removed and sealed the marker lights? Also are you making sure that the interior is dry before you store it away?

RE: Honda 2200i travel

I've towed mine (EU2000i) around for 15 years both in the front storage of the trailer or in the back of the Suburban with no issues. Just make sure you shut the gas cap off in storage and more importantly set to on for use.

RE: Dometic FRig operation

If set to Auto then yes it should automatically switch to propane when the power goes out. One caveat though. Make sure the propane lines are purged of air and the refrigerator will run on propane. On my trailer when I pull it our of storage the propane does not work until I light a stove burner to purge the lines of air. If the lines are still full of air then the refrigerator pilot has no chance of lighting.

RE: Brakes are Broke

Admittedly no idea. But I would probably get a wire, even an old set of jumper cables and make a temporary ground. Just connect from a bolt or bare piece of steel on the trailer to a bolt on the truck and try again. It doesn't cost anything and only takes a minute to eliminate a grounding problem.

RE: Small Propane Cylinder

Not quite the same but I have a 10 lb cylinder that I love. In fact it's my second one as the first was stolen well after it was expired so probably a blessing in disguise. Link I've never had trouble filling at any local place that refills bbq cylinders.

RE: Will Air bags make a big difference?

Only other suggestion is to only run at 44psi when towing. For around town daily commuting drop the pressure back to what is on the label on the drivers door jamb.

RE: tow with all wheel drive?

My 2001 Suburban. I think I put it in Auto once just to see if it worked. height=480

RE: House Battery charging

That vintage I would almost guarantee you the charger is not 3 stage. A replacement is probably around $250 try Link I've read a lot of positive reports on this forum about them.

RE: Sway Bars

It's a small popup trailer behind an F150. You definitely do not need to add weight distribution (spring bars) to the hitch. As far as a sway bar. If you load the Aliner properly with the majority of the added weight at or in front of the axle then probably not. If you get too much wiggle when towing, or you have to put too much weight behind the axle the yes I would get a standard inexpensive sway bar. Barney posted a picture of one above called a Friction Sway Control. But I would just tow it first and see how it performs before adding anything to it.

RE: tow with all wheel drive?

My 2001 is the same as above (Auto, 2wd, 4hi, 4l) I just leave it on 2wd. My guess is sellers are listing them as Auto 4wd because it sounds like a bonus selling point to them.

RE: Will Air bags make a big difference?

Hi Gary, when you say your tires have a max load of 35 PSI where are you getting that number? Is that on the sticker on the drivers door jamb or on the tire itself? The tires should have a max pressure of 45PSI cold embossed directly on the sidewall of the tire. I would at least put the rear truck tires at max cold (max cold is first thing in the morning before you drive more than a few blocks) But as Grit says if the 45 is still not right you can try 65 PSI and drive it for a few miles for a test.

RE: Dual tank fill-up to top

That sounds faulty to me. I would suggest taking it to the dealer to investigate. On the surface it sounds like the tanks area not venting properly during fill.

RE: 2 AC and ducting questions

So you want to block off the right side ducting of the front AC. I'm assuming on the right side where it comes out of the AC unit. This would separate the two units instead of them sharing trying to cool the entire trailer. Will it work with half blocked off and not damage your AC? The answer is maybe. You are going to have to get the make and model of both AC units. Look up their install manuals and there will be a spec of the minimum venting surface area. Then it gets fun. You need to calculate how much venting area is left by the remaining vents. Not seeing your system my gut feeling is it will work just fine assuming 6 inch round vents. But if the system uses some tiny little vents then yes it might be restricted.

RE: UL Certified 12v USB Charging Receptacles?

I doubt you will find any that are UL rated. At least not on Amazon as there just isn't enough market for it.

RE: Replace shocks or not.

They are probably not gas charged shocks to no auto extending. Unless the shocks are showing signs of leaking I would just put them back in and run them. Do you know how many miles are on the current shocks? I'll bet most trailers are pulled by weekenders and probably under 2,000 miles a year meaning no real significant wear.

RE: Propane Connection Leaks

I don't think it's normal. You should not spell any propane out there. You should also not see any bubbles in or around the sight glass. I would say your regulator has a leak.

RE: oil filter?

is there something special about the Godzilla engine? I would go to and put in 2021 E-450 and type in Oil Filter. It will give you a plethora of appropriate filter brands to choose from.
