Trailer hitch pin

When you insert a hitch into the receiver, you secure it with the hitch pin. Considering receivers and and balls are rated for different weights, has anyone ever seen a rating on a hitch pin? And has anyone ever broken or sheared a hitch pin? Bill

RE: How important is tire size to your selection?

I would never consider the 19.5s, they won't handle the weight capacity for a true Class A. Bll

RE: Amazon Lockers

Is there a weight or size limit on the lockers? I need a new winch which costs over $1000 and weighs about 150#. I'll be passing thru Oregon next summer where there's no sales tax so picking it up there could save some good money. Bill

RE: Draining hot water tank

I flushed mine several times and used vinegar on it when I bought it. I use a three filter system on it and have only drained it twice in the last seven years and that was when I winterized it while up north. As stated above, when was last time you drained your home water heater? If you're winterizing it, once a year is more than enough, Bill

RE: Cost if Class A diesel pusher inspection

Figure the going shop rate of $130 per hour. It would have to go to one shop to have the running gear items you mentioned to be checked and then to a second RV shop to check for things like roof condition, water leaks, awning conditions, window leaks, leveling hydraulics, tires etc. Check the air conditioners and thermostats for correct operation. Get the refrigerator checked to make sure it cools properly. Get the generator checked and have the its power output checked. Make sure the engine alternator is properly charging the house batteries. This will probably run you four hours at the mechanical shop and six hours at the RV shop. With all of the taxes and shop supplies used it will be around $1,600. This cost does not include any work that needs to be done. If you really want to be a diligent owner, after you buy it you should do all of the following so you start off with a clean slate: Changes oils in the engine, transmission, leveling hydraulics, rear end and front wheel hubs. Change all of the filters in the above components. Change the both fuel filters and carry two spares. Change the fan and alternator belts and carry a set for spares. Change the antifreeze and filter. Old or the wrong antifreeze will eventually ruin your engine. Do all of the above for your generator also and carry spare filters. Get slide seals lubricated When I got mine, I changed out both the house and chassis batteries so I knew everything was good. There's a lot more, but this will get you started. Bill

RE: No Good Sam Gas Discount

Get away from the truck stops and you'll save a lot more. Why cause yourself problems? Bill

RE: Has anyone tried to modify their 1/2 ton?

Adding leafs to the springs or air bags will take care of sagging, but they won't cure your 1/2T brakes, transmission, drive line or the rear axle itself. I don't understand why people buy 1/2T SUVS. Bill

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Installed several new gas shocks (or whatever you call them) on compartment doors. Now they all stay up. Bill

RE: Swapping out the Water Pump

Yes, some pumps are terrible to change. On my Nash 26X you have to pull the refrigerator to get to it as confirmed by the factory. If you go to the trouble of changing, look at doing these items to it. 1. On the hoses coming and going to the pump, go to HD and buy some of the gray foam pipe insulation to keep the pipes / tubing from bumping into things when the pump is turned on and off. 2. Place some rubber or rubber washers under between the pump and the floor. It will stop some of the pump vibration transmitting into the wood floor. 3. Install a small accumulator tank usually available for $35 to $40. Bill

RE: Another month in border closures.

Yes, it's getting old. I hope it opens by spring. Bill

RE: Generator and A/C question

If you've just started the generator for exercising and the MH has not been plugged in, then the battery charger is probably kicking on at the same time. If you have four house batteries, the charger is probably drawing a larger load than you expect. Bill

RE: 6 Volt Interstate batteries

I had Trojan 125s which are just a taller version of the 100s. They were good batteries, not worth the price. By that, I mean you pay double the price for them, but you don't get double the life out of them.......... In my DP I have four Costco 6V batteries at a lot cheaper price and in my TT I have four Interstate 6V batteries. If you can find the main Intersated area distributor in your area, go to them and see if they have any "blems". These are blemished batteries that may have a scratch on them, the labels got mounted crooked, or something. The batteries were only 2 months old and I got them at half price - that makes them about a quarter of the price for Trojans. If you go to Costco for the batteries, they should have two different capacities. Get the taller battery. Bill

RE: Winter travel

Do you need to put the slide out? We don't put ours out in excessively cold or hot weather. Take a sleeping bag with you. Bill

RE: camco wave 3 heater QUESTION

We just finished using one for two weeks while out moose hunting in camper on the back of a Nodwell with the temps in the 40s. We turned it off a couple of nights because it go to warm. It was a 16' camper. Bill

RE: How often and how to clean black tank

I've never cleaned the black tank in my trailer or DP. After you empty it, put several gallons of water in it which will get swished around, don't empty it. Things don't bio-degrade in a black tank, it is not a septic system. Bill

RE: Forty Foot Gasser

I'm assuming if a gasser, it has the front engine. This will mean more heat right next to you while driving, more noise and for me, it's very hard to get over the engine hump getting in and out of the driver's seat. With the engine up front I'm not sure where it will put your generator? I like my generator up front if I have to run it at night to keep my DP cool for sleeping. Bill

RE: A/C couldn't keep up. Help?

I have a similar DP as the OP, a 2005 Fleetwood Excursion 39S and it doesn't do any better than yours - that's why they put wheels on them so you can move to someplace cooler. Here's a helpful suggestion - pull in your slides, you'll have less space to cool off. Bill

RE: 22” rims vs 18” rims

Wait until a gust of wind hits that 40'TT sideways and your F150 doesn't have the weight to control it. Be sure to carry clean underwear and pants. Bill
