Drop hitch shank too long?
Airstream Forums

Looking for input on how much clearance is enough for a drop hitch. I upgraded by TV from a RAM 1500 to a RAM 2500 with air levelling suspension in the back. The new truck had a class V hitch receiver instead of a class IV, so I had to replace the shank of the hitch, the new 2 1/2 in. shank is much longer than the 2" shank leaving me with 8 inches of clearance without the load of the trailer on the hitch. With the AS on the hitch I am seeing a drop of about 1 inch thanks to the sir levelling suspension, leaving 6 to 7 inches of clearance - is this enough? Thanks in advance for input. Attac ..read more

I was writing a response to the Hi Run Tire post and then timed out while typing, finding dates, several photographs and all the details and problems were lost. So..... The 2006 23 foot Safari had 14 inch wheels and 14 inch Goodyear Marathon C Rated Tires. The ONLY Airstream with 14 inch wheels. Our FIRST Travel Trailer. I did not know that the 23 foot had the cheapest tires as standard from the factory. Marathons lasted from January 2006 to July 2007. Replaced in Rawlins, Wyoming with 14 inch Hi Run C rated tires. They did not last driving west to Rock Springs, Wyoming with the tread gett ..read more

Just came back from a beach trip with my Globetrotter, on the way back the latch on Norocold refrigerator door failed, door swung open and out flew three cans of ginger ale, one broke open and made a mess in my bedroom, fortunately the can stayed in one place and contained the sticky mess of soda. I used hot soapy water to clean up, cleaned floor three times to make sure no sticky residue, last cleaning was with hot water only and a sponge mop. So what happened to the latch ? Turns out that one of the plastic spacers on door hinge broke in half and door dropped down and safety catch pin would ..read more

Thought it might be an idea to have a thread for the new (Summer 2024) Starlink Mini. https://www.pcmag.com/news/spacex-re...re-lower-price We’re in the market for this, currently using our phones as hot spots. Interested in the concept, but we’ve no experience with Starlink previously, only an R2D2 unit by Dish and associated Wally receiver in our 2016 FC 30RBT. Our needs are modest, basically a single stream for digital TV (Sling) and light internet use. If we end up with one, I’ll post back our experience ..read more

Our International 27FB is plugged in to shore power (in our side yard) between trips and I turn off the inverter during these periods. We are on a short trip now and the inverter will not turn on at the remote controller located in the galley. Checked the circuit breaker, and it hasn’t tripped. Rest the GFIC sourced by the inverter when off shore power. No change ..read more

I purchased two 18' Tentproinc RV Awning Shade for our 28' FC (for camp and street sides). Despite any size differences, does anyone have experience with this product to quickly say how easy of difficult the install is as there isn't anything specific to an Airstream that I can find? Just wondering since I cannot try it before heading out on our trip. Thanks in advance ..read more
