We hope that your Fourth of July was a good one!
We are looking forward to the planned visit of some of the people in the TrailBlazer’s club this month here at the factory.
Our sales rep, Bob Eickhoff, will be in Colorado Springs at VAN CITY RV (1426 Selix Grove) for an RV Show on July 8th and 9th. They have a good selection of TrailManor travel trailers on their lot. There will be a nice sized cash door prize drawing for anyone attending (must be present to enter – need not be present to win). Stop by to meet Bob and see the new TrailManors. Who knows you may be the door prize winner!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: There are ten (10) TrailManor Model 2518s out there that have a Dometic 2-burner cooktop with the Model # CE99-ZF. These cooktops are a fire hazard. If you have one of these units contact your dealer right away. There will be no charge to you for the replacement cooktops. Nine (9) of the TrailManor Model 2518s with these cooktops are 2022 models; one (1) is a 2021 model.
RV Travel online magazine carried the following story (in part).
Here is an important reminder regarding the torque on lug nuts! If your lug nuts are not torqued enough they can become loose and may continue to loosen until they fall off while driving. In any case, driving without one or more functional wheel studs can be dangerous and could result in losing a tire while driving, a situation you do not want to be in!
You should re-torque the wheel nuts or lug nuts after the first 100 miles of travel. After that, you should periodically recheck the torque to make sure nothing has changed.
Every time a tire is reinstalled:
* Torque lug nuts to the manufacturer’s specified range.
* Check and re-torque after 50 miles for the first 200 miles. Thereafter, check lug nuts before each trip.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.
(Someone added this comment) It’s much better to use a deeper socket if clearance is a problem. Also, only use a six-point impact type socket. This lessens the chance of breaking the socket and slippage on the lug nut.
We are all doing well here at the factory; getting caught up and happy that sales continue to keep us busy.
