RE: Big Foot Jacks

You can try using power steering stop leak, it has a formulation to re-soften the seals and restore their sealing capability. I have used it in several types of hydraulic systems. Just top off the fluid with it and go on as usual. It will take awhile to work into the system, but it will work if you had a seal weeping.

RE: Frame Stiffing to reduce Porpoising?

Your center of gravity needs to be forward of the rear axle to place weight on the steer axle. Like a poster said earlier, move the camper as far forward in the bed as possible. When you add water, your porpoising goes away, that is a dead give away that you don't have enough weight on the front axle.

RE: Blow outs and tires

Switch to LT or MT tires. Stay away from the ST tires.

RE: Oven will not ignite

When you turn the oven on and to a temperature, the pilot flame increases, then it will warm up the thermocouple, when the thermocouple comes up to temp, it will open the main gas valve to the burner. The time it will take depends on temperature the thermocouple starts at and altitude you are at. The thermocouple is a non electric device that is filled with freon, when heated it will build pressure and press on a button in the main gas valve.

RE: gas problem

you didn't mention the year of the coach, but i would check the fill hose and the vent hose, they may need to be replaced. Also, replace the gas cap, they are suppose to hold pressure in the system

RE: heavier trailer tires and fuel economy

I run 17.5 MT tires rated for 6005 pounds per tire and wheel combination on my fifth wheel, wheels weigh 60 pounds each, with tires weighing 65+ pounds. I run them at max psi of 125. Actually get better mileage than the 16" tires they replaced.

RE: Blank Screen on Coleman Mach Digital Thermostat

Have you tried replacing the battery in the thermostat?

RE: Power voltage to brakes??

As long as all 4 brake assemblies are connected, you will never see 12 volts at the magnets, each of them are a designed short to ground and, will drop the voltage. Every splice in the system adds resistance and will drop voltage. If the splice is not a solid connection and water tight, they will corrode, add resistance, and drop the voltage. The cross over wire are usually inside the axle tube, where the jump around, rub, and chafe, which will short to ground and drop voltage. I can go on, but I digress. To improve performance, each magnet should have equal wire length to the source. The way they wire them, using under sized wire, is to run one lead down one side or the other, splice at the first axle, then to the second axle, then splice each axle to the other side. Resulting in the farthest wheel from the source will be the weakest braking wheel while the first in line closest to the source being the strongest. The best way to wire them for best performance is to run 2 wires, one down each frame rail, then splice them at the center of suspension to each wheel. That way you will have the same wire length to each wheel. And while your at it, use 10ga wire down the frame rails and splice 12ga to each wheel. When all done and said, and got tired of not having comfortable feeling braking, I replaced the whole system with disc brakes and have never looked back.

RE: This is our RV electric future. It's the future man!

I'll keep my oil burner, I can fill up 120+ gallons of fuel in less than 30 minutes, have never pulled up to a pump that didn't, and my range is 1,200-1,400+ miles. Today's diesels trucks are the cleanest ICE there ever was. My time is worth more than to stand around waiting for a charge!

RE: 2002 Pace Arrow Kwikee 2-Step Arm Linkage (A) Broke

Have it welded

RE: Chirping alarms

All smoke detectors have a 10 year life and need to be replaced 10 years from manufacture. Check the date on the back, they can be older than the year of the RV. Propane and CO2 detectors have a 7 year life and need to be replaced 7 years from the date on the back. This goes for any detector, hardwired, battery back up, or battery only units.

RE: Best leveler for travel trailer?

I have used the Lynx blocks for 15 years under our Landmark 5th wheel, pushing 18,000 real hard. Never had one break or crack. When parking on gravel, I always stack them on a 6' long 2"x10". Stacking them on gravel will destroy them for sure.

RE: painting/replacing wheel simulator rim liner

I would have them powder coated instead of painted, more durable and will last longer

RE: Pace Arrow cab air conditioner compressor oil fill

look for the label for the system in the engine compartment, it will list freon type and quantity, and amount of oil for the system. After flushing the system and replacing the orifice you will need to inject the proper amount of oil into the low side of the system before charging with freon.

RE: Stiffer bars for Blue Ox hitch?

You need to have the head adjusted for the new truck, either up or down, and the tilt. The hitch is set up for the truck, not so much the trailer.

RE: Slide Out Struggles

How old is you battery? Is it fully charged?

Bent spindles are not a warranty issue

RE: Steps

We did when I installed 6 point levelers, had to remove the steps to install the center jack. I installed the Mor-Ryde steps. Didn't know why we hadn't done it sooner, so much sturdier and feels better when going in and out.

RE: Help with high humidity

Showers, cooking, etc.. all add humidity, particularly showers. Use the bath vent when showering and the exhaust fan when cooking to help reduce the humidity. Running a stand alone dehumidifier would help dramatically.

RE: Holiday Rambler 2006 shower plumbing leak

If you think it has frozen, you probably will need the valve assembly.
