    Started stinking all of a sudden?

    Well we have had our landmark for several years now. This spring, I smelled the odor of propane pretty bad, only on one side of the RV. On closer inspection, I found one of the OE brass fittings on the regulator was cracked from being over tightened. It was a spiral crack in the brass input...

    This looks Bad

    Saw this today in ohio. I was passing by a storage area, and this SOB toy hauler looked odd. Looks like someone rear ended this unit. The king ping up front was mangled, and the rear door is missing. Do you think the damage will buff out?

    Ram 3500 DRW with Nexen tires

    Did a little reading on the RAM forum, and saw a post from fellow RV'er said his new RAM had a front tire blowout withing 2500 miles. Looked as if his issue was just a bad NEXEN tire, and it came apart. I havent had any failures on my truck yet, but there is a lot of weight on the front...

    Any concerns with the 3875FB

    Thinking about trading up to a bigger coach. Found a really nice 3875FB, where the bathroom is up front. My first thought is that the plumbing up front for the bathroom and shower, might be exposed to cold a lot more so that other floor plans? Might be a gotcha or not?

    Added a step

    After reading about the torklift steps. I had to try them. Other than the cost they are great. Easy to install, much lighter than the OEM steel steps too. On our rig using their measurements dimensions, we went from a factory three step, to a 4 stepper. Huge difference on my knees, and back.

    Am I just Lucky or what?

    My first ARTIS OEM water pump in my big horn lasted about a season, then it just started to surge like crazy. Sent it back to the elkhart based service center, and they said it was in specs. Sure it would pump water, but surged so bad it was not very usable. So I replaced it with a surflow...

    Self contained hydraulic leveling

    Saw an ad in the latest trailer life, about a new self contained hydraulic jack system for a 6 point level up from LCI. The ad states its faster than the current versions, and that there are no hoses, no fittings, and no external valves. So that means no reservoir, no long hydraulic lines. I...
