  1. When i was young and skinny i used to load my trials bike like this;
  2. I have loaded both hooked up and not. I do try to raise the front of the trailer as high as possible either with the air hitch or the front trailer jacks. Reasoning for that is to reduce ramp angle and breakover angle at the top of the ramp. I see no reason to put rear jacks down because my trailer is so heavy that rear jacks have no effect on stabilizing the trailer. When loading my bikes into my 16' enclosed cargo i used the same procedure hooked up or not.
  3. I know this should go without saying but i have made this mistake myself!! Make sure the valve on the full tank is open when you switch tanks! 😮
  4. I started to look for the ignore button too! His posts were bordering on narcissistic (had to look that one up to stay politicaly correct) and long winded.
  5. Thanks DreamersandTravelers that is the kind of info we need here.....the facts and nothing but the facts!
  6. Dryer sheets do NOT work! We had dryer sheets all around our MH and a mouse collected a bunch and made a nice nest in a drawer out of them. I have no experience with the sonic repellers so keep us informed. The way i am dealing with mice is to have baited traps in the main baggage compartment and check them weekly.
  7. My idea of glamping years ago was to shovel a trail in the snow from the sleeping tent to the kitchen tent. Turning a 5 gallon pail upside down and sitting down to enjoy a bowl of jiffy pop made on a pump up coleman stove! 🤗
  8. They are testy little begers arn't they! If you have a vice, put the axle bolt in the rim and through to the vice. Lotsa lube on tire and rim. The trick is to place the bead of the tire in as deep into center of the rim and then roll the opposite side of the bead over the the rim. Sounds real easy but u have to apply cuss words liberaly. The first bead slips in easily but the next bead is the hard one.
  9. Can the water be drained without loosing the resin? Kinda hard to prevent a hard freeze when travelling in -20 unless you bring the unit into the heated cab of the T.V.
  10. I have been looking at water softeners and wonder what one does to winterize the unit when you return to the frozen north?
  11. I used to believe the old wives tale about dryer sheets until i found a nice mouse nest made out of the dryer sheets i spread around my MH! Can't speak to the soap trick but your RV will smell nice.
  12. Short story.....yes, even though it was a full year out of warranty! Long story is it spent 3 months in my local rv repair shop while the factory gave the tech things to try that all failed to fix the problem including a new pump that cost big bucks and did nothing. I complained to DRV and they put me in contact with the Lippert repair and they agreed to replace the jacks, no charge!
  13. My jacks were failing as well. I ended up making an appt. at the lippert repair place. To insure that the legs did not fall during the drive i did the same as GeorgiaHybrid. I did not use the jacks or disconnect the truck till i got to the repair shop. The repair by the way involved stripping the front compartment to the frame and welding new mounts for the new cylinders to mount to. So far (2 years) the new jacks have worked well!
  14. Thanks Mr Cob, i really have to change my attitude that if i have an urge to go to the gym i just lay down till the urge passes!
