    I shot some chain lube into the trailer leaf bolts, and it quietened it down a lot. I suppose those "wet bolt" kits are the right way to do that.

    What you guys do for propane tanks? I need to take one of mine off if I want to connect my Coleman and Weber Q, as they have Internal pressure regulators. I’d like a 5 or 10 lb but they’re the same price at Can tire as a 20Lb at costco

    I have a low pressure hookup at the rear of my trailer to run my camp chef. But if I want to run my propane fire pit during a ban on "real" fires, I just take one of the 2 20 lb tanks off the front.

    You can get replacement hoses without regulators if your trailer has a low pressure hookup like mine does. I got mine made up at bbq galore, although the fittings and hoses are available many places.

    I bring an extra 20lb for my propane firepit place and it in a milk crate to prevent it from moving around. My trailer also has a direction at the back and I converted my Napoleon over so it connects.

    I've got two 30# tanks, and disconnect one to run the BBQ, or firepit. I leave it on the tongue though, and just use a 30' hose. I'm planning on running a permanent line to the back of the trailer one of these days, after I move the battery to my interior, and I'll use the exterior battery cabinet for gas and external water.

    Tik-tok. I like this idea... where you get the 30ft-er?

    yeah, if I had 30# tanks, I would not want to move em either. You can get long hoses from BBQ galore, or just google propane fittings.

    I run 3 x 30# and converted all of my outdoor appliances to quick connect hoses. Camp chef, weber Q, and portable fire place. I connected a 3 way manifold with individual valves to manage each hose supply. 2 are 10ft in length for cooking and the on 30ft'er for the LP fire pit.

    Seems to run mine okay, although I almost never need all three burners running at max.

    We camp late into the shoulder months and sometimes for a while. Got to make sure everyone stays toasty. Planning an LP conversion for my Yammy 3000w too so i do have a lot of LP demand.

    You can buy adjustable regulators to you swap out to get some more pressure to support the larger camp stove.

    I know @ExtraSlow talked about this recently, I’m just super lazy and don’t want to search for it right now, I’m feeling like I should look after lubrication on my Schwintek slide out as I haven’t done anything with it since I bought it brand new. Should I drop the $50 on this? CRC Power Lube Industrial High Performance Lubricant with PTFE, 16 oz. (Net Weight: 11 oz) Aerosol Can, Light Amber/White https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B000P1E7ZS/..._HHS7EbWA6B6FQ Or is there cheaper alternatives that can be shipped to me?

    Brah, you need a non-staining silicone lube. Brand is not important
    "slide lube" is fine, including the camco variety.

    If you don't mind going in person to a store, Canadian tire will have what you need for half that price.

    Bought a little teardrop camper last night The thing is bone stock, so I'm looking forward to working on it over the summer.

    That thing doesn't look long enough for a 6 foot man to fully lie down in.

    What does that logo say..."Little Gay xxxx"? That’s a cool little rig, I'd prefer something like that over the three axle houses people pull around.
