RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

Got the same song and dance when I tried to buy two snow tires for wifes car from CT,Four not two or we can't mount them. See ya. Don't know about the legality but if your wife's car is front wheel drive, I agree with CT. Here in Quebec four snow tires is the law; you cannot have two only. ... Eric

RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

That's really nonsense on Cdn Tire's side, I would have a tendency to buy the tires and take them to my local rv repair guy for mounting and installation.

RE: How do I transfer my title to a new owner?

Up here in Quebec the transfer of the registration (plate/tag) is the way it is done.

RE: Vent covers

The only time I close the vents (3) is when we are getting blowing snow. With swirling winds, traces of snow will find their way in; not much at all but I prefer not to have have it.

RE: Frameless windows?

how far do the bottoms open? can you catch a breeze through them? I like the look but not sure on the function. It depends on which window. My trailer has them all around; the side windows open closer to 4" at the bottoms, the rear ones open about 3". Also, the bedroom and one of the living room windows open with the fire escape push out rod which has those opening closer to 4-5" at the bottom. I definitely can get airflow throughout the trailer.

RE: Frameless windows?

We have them on our Enterra and I really like them. They all open at the bottom and can be left open in the rain. Also there is essentially no caulking or leaking to worry about. I think they look great myself.

RE: Snowbirds Question

Don't understand the problem? De-Winterize? After I fill the system with antefreeze I drain it, job done. No need to keep the pipes full all the water has been displaced. Drain the antefreeze then dump it down all the drains, now all the P traps are full.... Walk away, job done. When heading south don't hook up the water till it's warm. We carry a few large jugs of water to do dishes and flush the toilet. Don't worry, nothing will freeze after day two. Exactly what we do too. :C

RE: is covering the tires necessary?

Always cover mine; it's cheap insurance! :C

RE: Can I walk on my TT roof?

if there is no ladder on the back then no Not so, my roof is walkable (Cruiser RV-Enterra) as per the manual but I have no ladder because of the rear windows and dome roof configuration.

RE: If I sell it -- How do I get paid??

Whenever I've had to do high dollar transactions, I have my bank make the transfer arrangements.

RE: Atwood Helium fridge

I have an Atwood. You need to purge the line then retry 2-3 times per the manual. That's how mine works if I don't use the propane for awhile.

RE: Any harm in leaving the TT plugged in all the time??

Mine is not plugged in for two months, December and April; I check the battery level about every 3 months and add water about every six months.

RE: 2012 Ram 1500 / Shasta Oasis 310K

You'll be fine. I'm 7670 lbs dry (includes battery and two full propane tanks) and 820 lbs on the pin. I use an Equal-i-zer 12k hitch. I tow with 500-600 lbs of stuff in the trailer. I have a 2014 Ram 1500 with the 5.7L and 3:92 gears

RE: Dometic or Norcold? Electric?

I've had all three, Dometic, Norcold and now an Atwood, to me they all perform really well. My current Atwood has a fan that cycles on and off all the time and I've found that it cooled at a lower setting better than my Norcold one. I've actually had to turn it down because things were beginning to freeze. It also has a larger evaporator tray and doesn't end up dripping water in the fridge like my previous two fridges did. The feature that I like is that the helium is not flammable like the hydrogen was on the other units. Having said this though, I would have been happy with whichever fridge came with the trailer when I bought it.

RE: water hose

As stated, drain it, join both ends but then don't put it in a sealed container until it dries out externally. I just set mine in a plastic bin/tub without the cover on until everything is dry in the tub. Sometimes takes a week.

RE: Lift trailer under frame or axle

It depends on what type of axles and frame your trailer has. Best bet is to check in your owner's manual. I agree. I know on mine I lift with my floor jack and a block of wood under the U bolts.

RE: Door sticker says never exceed 1263 lbs of cargo/passengers.

WOW. Just got off the phone with my 5er buddy. He's in Alpine, AZ. He couldn't find a specific reference to the cargo/payload capacity on his door sticker but he said not to worry, by adding leaf springs to his truck he has increased the payload capacity and he reckons it's like a 3/4 ton now. I told him he actually reduced his payload capacity by the exact amount that the leaf springs weigh. Oh no that couldn't be he said, besides there is a Federal law that makes it illegal for a RV dealership to sell an RV that is too heavy for the customer's tow vehicle, at least that's what his last dealer told him and he believes it. What if he doesn't have a tow vehicle? I've actually bought two trailers prior to buying a tow vehicle!

RE: Looking for higher end travel trailer

We traded our 09 Holiday Rambler that we bought new in 08 for our Enterra 314RES TT to get more living room and kitchen space after we stopped traveling as much. Great decision for us, very happy with the TT in spite of less outdoor storage. We use it a lot more now that it sits on a seasonal campsite.

RE: Went from 1 ton to 1/2 ton and couldn't be happier

When I bought our new truck in April, I got a half ton instead of a three-quarter ton like I've had in the past. I much prefer the ride as my daily driver and we just don't tow very often any more. I'm very happy with my Ram 1500 Big Horn.

RE: Crossing into Canada

Here in Quebec the EDL was never a big hit; both sides of the border are promoting NEXUS cards as the way to go.
