Product Questions and Recommendations / Re: CO2 manual for 21BHS?
« on: June 25, 2017, 03:10:10 PM »
I think you mean the CO (Carbon Monoxide), CO2 is Carbon Dioxide, a common, and increasing gas in our atmosphere (as some would claim).

I have the E2 6000 lb (600 lb tongue) Round bar SKU: 94-00-0600 from http://www.fastwaytrailer.com/e2-hitch that I use on my 21RBS and Ford F150.

You would think that with a full size pickup it would not be needed, but even the F150 has a 500 lb max tongue load. Besides when it is on, it is like night and day towing, the extra sway control provided by the bars make that trailer behave behind me.

Note, there have been reports (and I had it too) that if it is the 2" coupler (5000 lb), and it only has the bolts on the top, that you could bend the coupler. Not to worry, we just add a couple of side bolts to bolt the coupler to the frame on the side. Livin' Lite has also has this fix as well (Contact them directly). Took me about 1/2 hour a drill and a couple of High Strength bolts to do the mod. No problems since. If you do a search on Google for 21rbs bent coupler, you will get some information about it.

I have a 2014 21RBS and need to get the gas spring for the main entrance door. I know it is 20" long and a Stabilus, but can't read the weight or part number off it as it is worn off.

The spring part is gone, just using it as a stop for now.

Anyone know what the part number is, or what measurements (length / Weight) I am looking for. I found ones that are the right length, but I am thinking I don't need an 85 lb spring to hold this door open

Thanks

Now, why couldn't someone at that plant notice the plate holder and the obviously new location of the tail lights. I agree, that one is a big oops, and something I would have them fix as it might affect the warranty.

As for the wheel wells, this is a well documented issue, even I had problems with that as well on my 21RBS. Nothing some rubberized undercoat / rockergaurd  won't fix

I have a 2014 F150 FX4 with the 3.5L Ecoboost, and the 21RBS. I use a WD hitch and it makes all the difference in the world. Trust me on this one!

Gibby, did you check to see if your brakes still work when the breakaway switch is engaged after you removed the small battery?

Yes! So long as the house battery is in...

I have the 2014 and the small battery (or should I say had the small battery).

For some reason that small battery was wired in parallel, and thus, when I disconnected the house battery the small battery was still connected and using power to run all that other stuff (propane detector, clock in radio etc.) and thus was going very dead.

Have since removed it as it was not needed.

Forum Recommendations / Set the Time Zone?
« on: January 05, 2017, 10:03:12 AM »
I notice that the times are all EST

Is there a place we can set the time zone?

Not a big issue, I deal in UTC quite a bit so I can convert, but makes things cleaner.
