    Need help - right tire runs significantly hotter than left without using breaks.

    Found the screw. Do you always move screwdriver up to tighten and down to loosen the breaks? I moved it almost all the way down, then couple clicks up, and it still spins slower than the left wheel. Connected the trailer to the car and the breaks almost do not affect the right wheel. Tried the...

    Need help - right tire runs significantly hotter than left without using breaks.

    That makes sense. We repacked the bearing just last week and took it for a ride, then replaced with new bearing and took it for a ride. Same result - hot tire. I will check for the adjustment screw on the back, thank you.

    Need help - right tire runs significantly hotter than left without using breaks.

    Hot that I can barely touch it but not keep my finger on it. And that is just after 20 miles run on highway with no breaks applied. The other side is warm that I can keep my finger on it.

    Need help - right tire runs significantly hotter than left without using breaks.

    Right tire spins slower than the left. This tire was replaced end of May this year - one spot was very worn out and we though it could be a defective tire. Tire pressure was checked before the ride and it was per manufacture instructions. How do we adjust individual tire break? Do not see any...

    Command hooks and Tabs.. Last Straw.

    We installed command hooks for clorhing on interior side walls of the trailer roof. They hold very well for a couple years now but the surdace is a very smooth laminated material. It was cleaned with rubbing alcohol to prepare. I tried to install the same hooks in the house on a painted wall...

    1997 Starcraft Starlounger - Water tank drain valve.

    I have a '97 starcraft constellation. The low point drain is under the trailer, below the water tank. We only drain it fully once a year, late fall, and all ither times just use my faucet pump to pump the water out.

    When was your first trip? Am I being too ambitious?

    We went to a private campground with full hookups and drive through sites for the first trip, it was early November and 30-40 min drive from home. Electric hookups are nice for colder weather, and we had plenty of time to figure out connecting to sewer and other hookups without blocking anyone...

    "Camper King" sheets

    We use regular king. They are a bit bulky and need to be tucked in. Someone mentioned trying jersey queen and they fit nice but lifted all 4 corners up when we get off the bed. The corners stayed up for some time after so we decided against.

    Outdoor rugs, RV specific or any ole rug?

    We still have a green "grass" outdoor rug. Tie it to the back bumper with velcro straps even if it's wet, it dries out. Keeps the dirt out of the trailer. I was thinking of changing it to a lighter rv rug but it actually works pretty good for now. I like that it's heavier and doesn't get pushed...

    Just Curious..anyone ever use the Emergency Exit on their pup?

    Emergency exits are next to each bunk on both sides. Zippers open from bottom to top. Never used them, but good to know just in case. One time LP detector was going on and off - turn out there was some LP accumulated inside the cabinet.
