Using my infrared heat thermometer, I recently noticed that the ODS rear wheel was running way cooler than the other three wheels. Turns out the brake adjusting wheel was screwed all the way in. A...

Using Verizon towers may provide good coverage that Verizon is known for. However, odds are that you will not have Verizon customer level performance.

We just added unlimited data with Verizon. So far, so good. The catch to it is the speed is reduced similar to that of a second rate carrier. In other words your service will not be at the...

Thx all for the input. Having seen similar units with this condition is a bit unnerving. The repair is usually requires major surgery. I'll redo the silicone to keep the water out then keep an eye on...

Seeing the problems some had with broken frames, I made a point to look at mine while the trailer was hitched vs. unhitched. While hitched I found a gap in the silicone sealant of about 1/16th of an...

That is good to know.

Wouldn't they still activate in reverse using the manual brake lever?

Your next problem will be with the cables breaking. Search the forum and you will find several ways to make tank draining reliable. BTW, they only break when it is raining.

Hopefully the OP does let us know.

Theunz, run those numbers out to 100k. Using your numbers that would come to $4500 in fuel savings. Nearly half the extra cost. A 400 hp gasser getting 7.5 mpg I...

Personally, I wouldn't worry about what you are seeing. Good observations but unless you see any significant changes to those issues, just use it.

Theunz, the 7.3 was good. I had one but would be a dog with today's heavier rigs. If poor reliability is being judged by that 6.0 then I would agree with you. One must consider resale value of the...

Mine doesn't have upper fans. The one lower fan was a joke so I added this fan with a temperature controller next to the factory fan. Search for "muffin" fans and you'll find all sizes and quality.

Use a clear sewer line fitting at the drain. It is easier to know what is happening when you see it.

LOL for sure. If I owned a repair shop, I wouldn't hire anyone as a mechanic unless they owned a new trailer for at least three years.

If you repair the cable pull valves remember how you did it. You'll be doing it again. Solid rod pulls or even electrics are a lasting repair.
