      Randy & Linda B Goodyear Endurance tires have a great reputation for trailers. Be careful on cheaper “China pop” tires or tires from a warehouse or dealer that have a very old production date. They increase your risk of a blowout or other tire failure which can do a lo...  more

      Wandering Websters I recommend to everyone to stay with Goodyear tires, they are heavy duty and American made. Everything we own rides on these tires so we don’t settle for anything else.

      Tom&Trish Checked Discount Tire for Goodyear Endurance ST235/80R16 replacements for my 5th wheel and discovered they have a $100 discount offer going on right now.  This beats the direct pricing through Goodyear.  Looks like that offer is good through 3/31/21.

      MartiL I like that - I'm thinking about changing mine too - because they only had one set of keys and the dead bolt doesn't always work.

      Torch The digital locks are great if you don’t mind spending the $, if yours is broken (the latch lever) you can purchase a repair kit on line for like $40. This will repair your old latch better than new since the latch is made out of steel instead of pot meta...  more

    ConsciousCowboy : Hey there!
    Wondering if anyone knows what size lug nut (and cover) this is. Or how I would find out. Short of taking one of the others off and heading to the auto parts store.

    Mary Olivera: hello everyone I was wondering if anyone knew a solar panel expert who can do a talk for an RVing women club. We are a non profit group and we are having a virtual campfire we think it would be nice to have a topic that everyone could learn from. thanks in advance

      SNOOPY1 Hi Mary, Am solar  is place that has the knowledge you need. Also they sell everything you'll need & do the the installation! Keep in mind you get what you pay for. Give them a call, be sure to have some great questions for them!  amsolar.com...  more

    Captbert: What is the best lubricant to spray on my leveling jacks cylinders? I have a Newmar 2004 Kountry Star. Thanks

      Captbert I saw an ad where Boeshield T-9 was recommended, any thoughts. Its expensive and can't find it locally anywhere.

      Daniel and Carol Hamer As long as it is a silicone spray (as per my maintenance manual) I don’t think the brand matters.

      Cliff and Sue The HWH tech that installed our levelers said to use the same fluid that is in the system, transmission fluid.  Just wipe the legs down with the fluid.

    ConsciousCowboy : Not really a "repair", but this 'Stay-A-While" propane tee took all of about 5 minutes to install.
    With propane being rather hard to find lately (at least in central Texas), I can now put the accumulation of 20 lb tanks I have to use.

    Randy & Sue: wondering, we have one standard marine battery on our 2020 Cougar that is towed with a 2015 F150. Two talking points. 1) Ford "tweaked" the 7-pin trailer connection on their F150s between 2015-2019 to no longer send power to charge the trailer b...  more

      Bandit455 My '04 E350 had all the wiring in place, but ford intentionally left out either the Maxi Fuse or the relay ( I forget which). Found it in the manual, opened a fuse panel under the hood, and installed it.

      Dan&Jo I will purchase my RV parts and equipment at the least expensive place I can get the item I want. Camping World is in fact the largest and often least expensive RV/Marine parts store around. Sorry for your problem, thank you for your concern. God bless.

      Dan&Jo Reviews are subjective, if you go to bbb.org look at CW in Tulsa OK for instance 'A+' rating yet same state in Oklahoma City OK they are rated an 'F'. Much of this depends on those people working at that particular establishment. As for reviews, almost no...  more

      Dan&Jo Bob, I think you posted this to the incorrect post. The post re: CW is one post above this one. You can simply copy and repost, then go to the small caret icon in this post and delte it. Best of luck.

      Steve & Julie Thanks everyone.  Started to work normally later yesterday. Checked fuses (no issues) and put grease on all the areas. Going to check underneath when it stops raining. Taking it in when we return home. Again thank you all.

      Dan&Jo Sorry meant to post response. We had a similar issue and found out it was moisture that got into the sensor on the screen door. We replaced the sensor and have not had any problems since. Best of luck, God bless.

      2sheps Annual inspection is primarily chassis, drivetrain, lights, etc. Find a good, (check reviews), truck service facility. Better techs! Better rates!

      Mac and Suzanne If you are near South Carolina, then Tony's RV Parts and Service, Lexington, SC. They are in the middle of nowhere and a 2 hour drive from my home but they are worth the drive. They do great work, they are honest and reliable.
