RE: How do you seal a sewer hose

I gave up on those and started using the Camco Revolution Sewer hoses. They do not leak, they have caps for both ends for storage and they fit in the trailer bumper. http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/camco-39624-20-revolution-sewer-hose-kit/6000130570268

RE: Blue Ox Sway Pro, Anderson or Equalizier ?

I tow with a 12K Equali-z-er and it has been great; no real sway and my rig is level. It's simple to hitch, unhitched and I can back up without disconnecting anything.

RE: Cruiser RV/Fun Finder info

We don't have a Fun Finder but we have an Enterra by Cruiser RV. We've used it 125 days over the past 12 months and it has performed really well. A couple minor issues with cupboard door hinges and a piece of trim but other than that it has been great.

RE: pros/cons seasonal site

We love having a seasonal site, this will be our 9th year. It's 75 miles from home so we go back and forth all summer and we essentially use the rv as a cottage. We also still travel occasionally from our seasonal to other campgrounds whenever we get the urge to do so. We have a deck, a storage box for chairs etc... and we are able to leave everything connected all the time. Best of both worlds for us.

RE: Schwintek slide issue

Can't help with your specific issue but here is the manual which has some trouble-shooting included; https://lci1.com/assets/content/support/manuals/om-schwintek.pdf I had one side that did not want to come all the way in and lubing the rails fixed it.

RE: Tough border crossing today, Tuesday

From the video it really looks like the truck caught on fire first, then the TT. Just curious, I looked at it several times and could not figure that out. How did you arrive at that?

RE: Carrying Weapons North of the Border (cont)

We do not need another gun thread; the initial one was closed for a reason. Information regarding bringing weapons into Canada has been posted in a 'stickie' at the top of the Canada/Alaska forum.

RE: toad brakes?

Ron, I have heard of them but I was not aware they did not provide toad braking just break-away. We went back to a TT and pickup but we spent 6 years with a Class A and towing a Jeep and I used a Brake Buddy. I would still like to hear back from the OP (unless we've scared him off - hopefully not). ... Eric

RE: toad brakes?

The OP was inquiring about traveling to Alaska relative to his specific toad set up. Until the OP replies whether or not he has a supplementary braking system, all this discussion is irrelevant. He stated that he has a 'brake away sysyem' which would infer that he might have some sort of supplementary braking; now we simply need clarification to provide better responses. ... Eric

RE: Carrying Weapons North of the Border

Burbman said: "I drove through customs pulling the TT and they didn't even stop me..." OH yeah? When/ where? prove up that statement or quit writing fiction! I guess you missed the joke that Burbman posted, go back and look at the photo. :B

RE: Information for entering Canada/US (including weapons)

Weapons This is info that I found on crossing the border with weapons. It is obviously subject to change at anytime. For specific up to date information it is best to contact the appropriate authorities on either side of the border.

RE: 7 Pin Trailer Connection falling out of TV outlet

We've had the "trailer disconnected" warning come up on two trips now. The first time we were going down the freeway and I have no idea why it happened. The most recent one was on a fairly smooth road, but the first 4.5 miles away from the campsite was a dirt road. So that could have shaken the connector lose just a bit. (on the good news front, that road liquefied everything in the black tank) I'll have to see about rigging up a small bungee as others have done. The 7-pin on the TV is was new a year ago as I made the dealer replace the original because the cover was missing. I have the "trailer disconnected" warning come up on my 2008 F250 on an irregular basis. The first few times I stopped as quick as I could to check everything... and everything was fine. It has gotten to the point where I almost ignore that warning - when it comes up I check mirrors to see if the trailer is still there, look to see if the running lights work, and just continue on my way. The warning light goes off after only a minute or two. I read somewhere that someone else had their plug receiver replaced on the truck and that solved the problem. I don't know what is causing it, but it doesn't seem to be an issue. If it's like mine, you do not want to ignore the warning too long. When I get that message, it's not just a fault warning, I actually lose my trailer brakes too. Mine did this several times on our trip north this spring until I used a tie wrap to hold the plug in place. ... Eric

RE: 7 Pin Trailer Connection falling out of TV outlet

I use a tie wrap to hold the trailer plug onto the truck's outlet cover.

RE: town ordinace against travel trailers on city streets

It's 48 hours where we live to load, unload, clean and minor maintence. Personally I would not want to be looking out the front of my house at a trailer/rv everyday.
