About the fabric . . .

Oh boy, I see a potential fabric fest in the making. My Mom will be camping with me at the ralley, and she is the queen of the fabric stashers. Quilting is what drives her passion. Annie, I'll ask her if she knows of any stores in particular on the way to Florida. She used to shop JoAnn and the Rag Shop when she lived in south Florida. If you are looking for something in particular, let me know. She may have it! For that matter, I might. I've collected a sizable stash over the years too. If you're coming through Chattanooga, TN on I-75, I can get you to Hancocks Fabrics here in town.

My wife is a quilter also www.geocities.com/alans_david shows some of her t-shirt quilts.

As for the stew I sure don't want to be the cause of ruining anyone's Brunswick by chickening out!! But if that works, we can bring a side dish for Friday night also....maybe corn bread?? We actually have an oven now, the moho did not..

Just to show you the depth of our sickness, my wife found this fabric somewhere near us. I'll find out where - it may be another option for you.

we had our first overnight to a local lake campground this weekend. First real tow experience and settiing up, etc.
Smooth ride over, beautiful day for fall in GA.
Pulled into a nice pull thru spot, off the lake in the wooded area.
Tried to take the spring bars off, being mindful of advice from another member here on safety when working with these which are very new to me,,,and wham!!....just missed breaking my right hand as the bar slammed downward. Thought I had most of the tension off, but the truck was on an uphill slant...yikes it hurt like heck but nothing broken. Lesson learned...(park on a flat surface and take those off first)

Then awhile later I had the tongue jack on a block, missing the fact I forgot to put the extra support I use under the jack first. Blam!!, the block broke in half and the trailer dropped a bit to the ground in front...not far enought to break anything but scare #2, lesson #2.

Enjoyed a great afternoon and overnighter, gor tanks drained, everything set to go...on then way home I felt the brake pedal in the truck get hard...maybe a master cyclinder issue? Then the rear drivers side brakes started smoking,,,locking up.
Made it home going slow, with stopes to let it cool.
Sooooo now its a visit to the shop for brake inspection, and hopefully the bearings on that side are ok .
Good thing we went on a shakedown before Hiawassee!!

Nice looking trailer Alan, my brakes do the same thing once in a while, if I hit them again real quick they work fine, I think it is the master cyl. too. Mine has 290,000 Km on it.

No, no smoke, that is proubly form a brake hanging up or grabbing, even if it is grabbing just a little bit without a brake controller it would not take long to heat up. If you get a real hard peddle and not good brake that is usually a master cyl.

I read on the Ford truck forums that there were quite a few who complained of rear brake lock on the big F series. Some said they were prone to moisture causing the metallic pads/shoes to rust slightly and stick to the drums.
Also moisture in the brake fluid.
The abs system seems to cause the grabbing especially if the rust is present.
Pulling the wheels will tell me the tale on this.

Alan, that's a beautiful Airstream you have sitting at the campsite. I learn something about unhitching and set-up every time I go out, and I can relate to your near-injury in taking the bars off. Hopefully you'll find the cause of your brake issues and it will be an easy fix for you. BTW, tell Shannon her T-shirt quilts are fabulous!

Alan,
1:Glad you don't have any broken bones from the incident with the equalizing bars.
2:That sure is a great looking trailer.
3:I have also had many problems with the brakes on my 1996 F-350. The last time my rear brakes locked up and began smoking, the Ford dealer determined that the inside parking brake pedal assembly was not releasing and causing the problem. After about $700 over the past 8 years I still have issues with the brakes from time to time.

Thanks for the compliment on the quilts, she has made many over the years. I have a great one on my bed in the trailer.
The more I read about the brakes, the more I wonder if there is a definite fix. Seems like a lot of folks with the older style ( and also some newer) 250's and 350's have had some brake issues. I thought about the emergency brake not releasing totally as well when it first happened. Guess it will take some eoinvestigation before I know what is going on. I sure don't want to throw money at it and not solve the problem.
