195BH Spare Parts?

Great information to have a spare toilet water valve. Besides maybe an annode rod, are there any other parts you suggest keeping as a spare?

The other parts I keep are light bulbs, batteries, fuses, all the tapes (duck, Teflon, electrics), and waterproofing aluminum tape (in case of roof or body leak).
I've been meaning to keep one of these around in case there is ever a drain leak but haven't got it yet.

Camp4two, before your long voyage have you tried filling up your FW tank and then traveling? The first time I filled it full and traveled to boondock when I got there the tank was down to 1/3.
Apparently they put the vent hose in the wrong place that allowed water to run out while driving.

Our FW tank has always been emptied before traveling so far. I read the threads in your post on FW loss when traveling. Looks like I might be in for a potential big FW loss unless FR fixed the overflow pipe on later model 195BH trailers.

I'll do a test on our FW tank during our long haul trip in May and report the results back to you.

195BH Wheels Needed Balancing

Our TV wheels was due for regular rotation & balancing. Decided to take our three 195BH trailer wheels for balancing as well. Our trailer wheels did not come balanced from the factory (likely most trailers do not). All three trailer tires required weights on both front and back wheels (see photo).

For a smoother ride, better tire wear and to minimize wear on your wheel bearings, it is a good idea to get your trailer wheels balanced. Wife and I are going on a 2,000 mile tow in May and want to be sure our wheels and tires ready for this trip.

Hi daybreak, Was off the grid with our trailer a few days and unable to reply. The LEDs for all interior lights are T10 wedge type socket. The porch light LED is #1156 regular socket. We use bright white T10s for the bathroom and kitchen and warm white for all other interior lights.

No problem I was at work when I had asked but was able to check the numbers and mine say 921, the ones I found on amazon are 921/T15. Are they the same? I was going to buy a 12 pack and they would all be white so cooler color than the warm yellow of the incandescent ones in there now. Not sure how I feel about the color but my main goal is to have them not heating up so much. Opinions please.

Thank you!

Yes 921 is the original interior bultb number, but our replacement LEDs were T10/921 not T15/921. Don't know if T15/921 will fit. Anyone know?

I can't make the Amazon link work here but search Amazon for <Autosaver88 4x Super White T10/921 LED light bulb>. These are the LEDs I put in the bathroom and kitchen.

Yes, the original bulbs are way too hot. Also, the LEDs use very little battery power when dry camping.
