Personally, I wouldn't trust propane on a trailer that's been sitting for any length of time. I'd definitely want it checked by a professional. I only have one life!

lol thanks Donna!

Ok, another question about an issue I am clueless about...

I am getting new tires for the scamp. It has not been driven for 4 years, but 4 years ago, the wheel bearing were re-packed. How often does this need to happen? The trailer was driven 1300 miles since it's last re-packing.

Oh yeh, and here she is...

Most say every year, but due to the length of time this has sat have them repacked before pulling.

Bearings shouldn't nee to be repacked unless they have mileage on them, at least, thats what my trailer mechanic has told me. I asked him to check them anyway..my 17 had sat unmoved for over 7 years.

They were fine and I have towed about 4k miles on them. It's time for me to do them now, even tho they seem fine.

oh, Oceanside is a ways from me, but if you have the new tires before you leave, you should be fine making it up my way (Near San Bernardino).

Where are you picking up this trailer? [b]I wonder if one of our members might be willing to go with you and help you check it out and get set up? Anyone?????

Well, I am picking up the camper in [b]Oceanside, CA.

Gosh, you guys are SO helpful!

I have been working pretty hard on getting this stuff figured out! So far, I know that the outlets are working when hooked up to external power. That definitely puts me at ease, knowing that I will be able to plug in a lamp and maybe an electric burner. We still don't know if the propane stove actually works, because we believe that the propane tank is empty. [b]Have the nozzles on propane tanks changed since 1981? I was looking at a picture of the tank, and it looks different to me, but, then again, I don't know much about propane tanks, either! Here is a picture- is it different??
#1. Oceanside is more in my neck of the woods... [b]When are you planning to pick it up? I would be willing to meet you there.

#2. That propane tank is obsolete. You'll need to replace it, and the hose from the regulator to the tank.

Thanks Frederick for offereing to meet me there. My cousin is helping me to figure out the trailer stuff. She is no trailer expert, but it seems that with her knowledge, coupled with all of the help from the forums, we should do fine. Thanks for the info about the propane tank... I am sure I will have more questions soon!
