too massive?!?

Yo! Too heavy duty. That is the question. You see I needed w Weight Distribution hitch. I have 2 sets of bars but nothing to Connect them to. Soooo I went to Amazon. Looking at all the pretty Hitches. Big ones small ones. Light duty to heavy duty. I put my tounge jack on a bathroom scale. Needle went around 4 or 5 times. Kidding about the scale part. But I have no way of knowing what My tounge weight is My bigger set of bars are probably around 750 lbs. But i found a hitch on Amazon for $179.00 free shipping! I bought the biggest heaviest Beast of a hitch I've ever seen. Rated for 1.200 lbs toung weight. I'll probably never pull a trailer that weighs 16,000 pounds! My question is how to set up a hitch like this? It has tilt and all. Is there any difference between this hitch and a 750lb hitch?

RE: Anatomy of a Window

Remove the whole window. In the top picture i can see a split in the frame. There should be another split on the other end. This would be held together by a plate and a couple screws. The area im looking at is dead center on the top picture. Where it shows the up and down of the end of the window.

RE: Broken axles

I think laws need to be changed to prevent this kind of thing from happening in the first place. If you add 30+ gallons of fresh water, 40# propane, 10 gallons of black water, You have over loaded the trailer considerably. That does not include food clothes towels clean clothes people pet food or pets.

RE: 2nd Trip and Major Issues

this is why I hate new trailers. I used to work at a trailer sales lot and did the check ins when they arrived from the factory. I cannot begin to tell of the horrors Iv'e seen come to the lot. Roof peeling, slides that almost fall out, T.Vs smashed by the slide, Walls full of water. The trailers built nowadays are very pretty to look at. But getting all the bugs out can take some time. They build between 5 and 9 units a day of the same model. Really NOT trying to insult people who own new R.V.s I say congratulations on your purchase. May it serve you for many enjoyable years.

RE: can I seperate the 12 volt from the 110 system?

I think that will be my next step. Then I need to dig into the propane side and see what works there.

RE: can I seperate the 12 volt from the 110 system?

I would think 'General Purpose' would be outlets Not sure what 'portable Appliances' would be? Is converter still powered? I don't know. I'll check in the A.M. Right now I'm running a power strip on an extension cord.

RE: can I seperate the 12 volt from the 110 system?

Hey thanks for the info. I just looked at the main breaker Pannel and there is a breaker labeled "portable Appliances" I shut this breaker off. The others are: Main, Air Conditioner, and General Purpose. I don't know what general purpose stands for.

can I seperate the 12 volt from the 110 system?

Yeah. Fulltimer with a problem. I am pretty sure my converter is shot. My question is can I Seperate the 12 volt system from the 110 system? I can use lamps for lighting. But would really like to use the wall Outlets to plug stuff in. I use a heater buddy for heat. I think the 110 side is ok but there's a problem with the 12 volt side. The trailer is a 79 Terry 24 foot. No serious electronics In this model. Can I? Huh? Pretty please? I did put a new heavy duty battery on. But still get loud hum and Clicking from the converter.

RE: bad inverter?

I'm a little confused with the wiring on this trailer. It has a big red wire with a fuse. It has a big white wire and a big black wire. Also a small black wire. I am pretty sure red is hot. But no clue on any of the others. These wires run from trailer to the battery on the trailer

RE: bad inverter?

Thank you for the information. I am going to replace the ring terminals Tomorrow. I will be checking this. Great info.

RE: bad inverter?

Yes the trailer is old. Its a 1978 Terry 24'. No model # or name that I can find. So I believe it's a T 24. They didn't have the Tarus line till around The early 80's. Given its age I don't know much about it. My GMC Yukon Moves it easily. This is gonna be a learning experience for sure.
