  1. You guys ain't making thisa cheap fix....... I just did some looking. I can get a new motor for $183.99 or a reman for $42.99. Probably gonna let it run it until it quits completely. I do want to find a rear door latch. I have one door that won't lock or unlock electrically. I have to lock it manually.
  2. That makes sense. Guess I didn't think about the wiper motor wiring.
  3. Would the reed switch make the wipers do multiple sweeps sometimes when on intermittent? That is something I am not sure about. I was thinking that the contacts may be rough and stick once in a while. Maybe there's more than one issue. I can swap relays, but won't replace the wiper motor until it quits completely.
  4. Ever since I got my truck, once in a while the wipers won't work on intermittent and they will also stop where ever they are when I turn them off. If I turn them on and let them sweep a couple of times they will work properly and go the park position when shut off. Is this a possible relay in the PDC problem?
  5. Another update......... That shot of steroids seems to have done what I want! There is slight pain on occasion, but I can do about anything I want. Maybe it was just a tiny tear and won't be a problem to heal......... I hope. Since the day after the shot I haven't used my brace or crutches!
  6. Got an update. Went to Dr this morning. He confirmed what we thought (different doc). Torn meniscus is the most likely problem since x-ray didn't see it. His advice was "Don't rush into surgery" and gave me a shot of steroids in the knee. He also said go easy on it because surgery would put me closer to replacement. Give it time and it should heal..... I hope so because I am leaving this area in about a month with plans to be back in May for a couple of weeks.
  7. Yeah, I am not quite as mobile as the guy in my avatar....... Getting better though! I can put a little weight on my leg. Hopefully soon no more knee brace or crutches. I bet I don't heal much quicker than you, Dripley
  8. Now for the latest....... No trailer issues, but I was putting some plywood down in another trailer dueto the floor being soft. I was going up the steps and heard a loud SNAP!!! The loud snap was my right knee. Saw a Dr this morning, had an x-ray, but no real diagnosis yet. Speculation is possible torn cartilage...
  9. Hey, now....... Just because a psychologist once told me I was an "opinionated SOB" don't mean you need to rub it in.
  10. So, you're saying I got my trap glued shut?
  11. No sir. It looks better than what it did new! I also installed new bushings in the springs and new bolts in it. I didn't feel anything from the trailer (except the weight) on the way to the campground. Seems like it rode quite well. I will know more when I hit the road later this year.
  12. Well, it's been a week with the trailer back. I got the air ride installed along with the new tires. So far so good! The floor feels about as solid as it should be!
  13. I have plenty of room to go up with the pin if needed. Forest River seems to hav stepped up to the plate! While putting the tires back on and found one with a ply separation (original Castle Rock). So now I am going to put Goodyear Endurance on it. I really didn't want to buy tires yet, but I have no choice......
  14. It's gonna be a lot better! We went from a 2017 38' to a 1995 28'. Getting back into the 38' is gonna feel like a mansion!
  15. Well, I took the wife shopping this morning. We stopped for breakfast and I got a phone call. My trailer showed up at the dealer some time last night! I went and looked at it and it looked good. New roof, new parts on roof, new floor, new linoleum, new carpeting even. They even fixed the drawers that would slide out easily when traveling, repaired one drawer that the bottom had popped out, fixed a shelf that had broken, put new seals and one glide on the slide outs, and did a 'normal PDI'. The floor is a lot better than what it was and the roof is flat as can be. Not to put on some Lippert Center Point suspension and a hitch for a bike rack. Then I can bring it to the campground and switch things around. Another plus is I have the older trailer (that we stayed in) sold and all I need to do is move it to a new site and put my newer one where I want it.......
