General Discussion / Re: Lighter RV's Equals Other Offsets
« Last post by Memtb on Today at 12:51:51 PM »
    People seem to be gullible for the “snake-oil” salesmen of the world. In this case, the lighter, ultra, lightest, featherweights, etc. The cold, hard, heavy to carry facts....unless you can afford an RV manufactured of a titanium alloy, structural integrity is sacrificed for light weight.

Last September we made a trip up to Saskatchewan, Ca and across to Banff and on into B.C.  At Banff, we hit the smoke and remained in it clear on down to Mt. St. Helens. Rather spoiled an otherwise nice trip.

The Shade Tree / Re: I wish i had a shade tree - hot hot hot

I've got a shade tree for you free of charge. It's a nice hard maple about 25' feet tall.  All you have to do is come pick it up. We had a hard wind storm come through yesterday and blew it down.  You may have seen the news about the Duck boat getting swamped and sinking. Well, it was that wind that made my tree available.

Sorry but your 250 is going to be seriously overloaded so you have a couple of real options
A - trade and get a 350
B- call standens and find a shop to install extra springs and a engineering co and get the truck re certified about $2000.00
C forget the 5er, that 250 will pull a really really nice toy hauler bumper pull
Cheers
I would go for "A" but would also consider "B". 
You rarely hear of anyone going from a fifth wheel to a travel trailer, but you often hear of folks going travel trailer to fifth wheel.  Gooseneck/fifth wheel trailers pull more stable, turn sharper, are easier to back and offer shorter overall length for the same amount of interior living space.

General Discussion / Lighter RV's Equals Other Offsets
« Last post by durangod on Today at 12:25:17 PM »
I recently noticed that my 2007 RV siding is much thicker than the new models of today.  The new models you can probably cut the siding with a serrated butter knife, where as mine you need a actual saw blade of some kind.   It shocked me how paper thin my friends RV siding is, if it got hit by a rock on the side while going down the road it would probably make a hole. 

So my thought is that lighter is not always better.

Tech Talk / Re: Water heater LP only works with cover door open
« Last post by Sun2Retire on Today at 12:24:02 PM »
Okay water heater experts. When I run my water heater on LP, it lights up, goes for a few minutes and starts spitting and sputtering, then goes out. If I pull the cover door open to have a look it it works great, but as soon as I shut the door the flames starts sputtering.

Off hand I'd say it's the air mixture adjustment. Would seem to indicate insufficient air based on opening the door making everything OK. You might try loosening the set screw and sliding the adjustment more open perhaps 1/8-1/4" and see what happens.
