RE: What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

Change a 22.5X10:00 in a emergency only. I can, but don't carry a spare.

RE: WA 20 or US 2 across the Cascades summer 2020?

Our normal route is to leave Oak Harbor Wa. early evening after work, then and stop in Newhalem Wa in the rest area for the day. (no services) From there is a 4 to 5 day to the Red apple market in Twisp. Our next night is a over night in the Loul Loop Okanogan Forest camp (no services) then it is a 40 mile trip from there you go where 97 east or west or on to Spokane -> 1-90. Keep in mind, Leavenworth is tours trap, $100.00 KOA

RE: WA 20 or US 2 across the Cascades summer 2020?

But in my experience WA20 from the freeway through Sedro-Woolley (about 7 miles) feels just as congested. Often I like to bypass that by leaving the freeway at Arlington, and taking 530 through Darrington. That stretch by itself is scenic and worth the drive. Or in the right vehicle, exit to Granite Falls and take the Mountain Loop Hwy to Darrington - with 15 miles of gravel forest service road! US2 Leavenworth to Wenatchee is also pretty busy, though about half is divided. WA20 is more remote. The 70 miles Marblemount to Mazama has no gas. I hate WA -2.. I have seen it take 11 hours from Gold Bar to I-5, week end traffic is horrible. One crash and you are bottle up for hours. There are 3 ways to access WA-20 from the east, I-5 to Cook Rd, to WA-20 .. I-5 to WA-20 in Burlington. And I-5 thru WA-520 to Rockport. all are easy routes. Burlington to Sedro-Wooley is mostly city streets past Junction of 9. then it will open to country.

battery charging

how long should we stay on Float charging before change. ?? We are now about 3 months of no change. 13.3 Volts steady Should I disconnect for a while, and allow the batteries to disconnect for a while.

RE: 20 year old hoses

Inspect, Inspect ---- and change as required. all new hoses will set you back $3000 or more. We commonly see 50 years on Equipment with no problem.

RE: Difficulty Reducing Tongue Weight

Hello! I joined today because I have been unable to solve my towing issues and would like to see if anyone can give me ideas to help. Tow rig: 2018 F150 Lariat Crew 4x4, 3.5L max tow Camper: 2007 Gulf Stream Innsbruck 24RKL Background: For as long as I’ve owned this camper, towing with two previous GM trucks, I’ve never felt comfortable towing this trailer. It doesn’t sway, but in any type of winds, the stability just isn’t great. It feels as if I am being shoved around and it can be difficult to keep in the lanes at times. I upgraded to an equalizer hitch setup in hopes that would help, but it has not. I decided to start from scratch and start weighing everything. This is where I ran into a serious problem. My camper, with no propane, water, gear in the front is weighing in at 1200 tongue weight using a sherline scale. After finding that, I hit the cat scales and confirmed a reading of 1160. This is well in excess of the recommended 10-15%. I am also just under my gvwr, with just me in the truck, and the tongue weight is over the rating of my equalizer. I tried to fill my back grey tank, shift weight and the best I could get down to was 1100 lbs. Basically, I’m at a loss on how to get this trailer down to an acceptable tongue weight of say 900 lbs. The actual tongue weight is far in excess of what the trailer spec sheet shows. I guess shame on me for not figuring all of this out earlier, but I want to figure out how to make this safe and comfortable to tow.. I would appreciate any suggestions, and please let me know if I’ve left out any detail needed. I am looking to get rid of this camper at this point because it would seem that I need 600-700 lbs of ballast at the rear to make this right, but I am afraid of creating a sway issue. Thank you for any and all input. Your problem isn't the truck, replace your trailer tires. go to (G) or heavier
