RE: New Duramax Question

Its called by pass! Dirty or clogged filters can bypass dirty fuel oil etc. One chunk of crud past the filter and your injectors are toast to the tune of thousands of dollars/Deutch marks/ euros you name it. It can get expensive in a big hurry. 50 dollars for a new fuel filter is cheap insurance.

RE: 199 Crescent City to Grants Pass OR

No. Narrow in a few places but a beautiful drive. Dont forget to visit oregon caves

RE: New Duramax Question

Fuel filters are cheap compared to a new set of injectors. Change it every 10K miles or so. Cheap insurance

RE: Need help with ideal setup (within budget)

Never happen. Sad to say but a 3000 dollar used vehicle is going to be used up! Budget for a used vehicle for full timing should start around 20K and plan on more thn that. As for trailers? 4Runners are nice for running around town but no where near compentent enough for full time pulling a trailer large enough to live comfortable in. For a full time budget think in terms of 50K for starters. I will get some flack on that number, but IMHO it is an honest number as a starting point.

RE: Dodge 3500 steering

Real common on 09 and earlier Dodge 4X4's Do NOT let them install factory replacement parts. There are better aftermarket parts available

RE: Workcamping experience ?

Depends on the park. But as for Oregon state parks your only obligated for 30 days at a time. Free full hookup site and some of the best rangers in the world to work with.

RE: Portable ice maker, inside or out

Mine sits outside under the awning with no problem. We use a gallon milk jug to keep water handy to refill it. BTW compact appluances sells a lot of different models priced from less than a hundred dollars to out of site in price.

RE: Remote switch to turn off inverter

My inverter had a remote switch option so it was a simple matter of plugging it in. Now if you really want to do it youll need a heavy duty relay a length of 18ga wire and a basic toggle switch. Pretty simple stuff really

RE: Workcamping experience ?

Instead of looking for paid jobs you might volunteer at a few places. That will gain you the experience necessary for paid jobs, and build a resume that fits.

RE: Brake problems

The factory controllers have had known issues in all brands. Contact your dealer to see if they have an update available

RE: 2013 3500 diesel pickuo

I get on the throttle hard when I have the fiver hitched and it does it. Pull away with a light foot and it does not. 800 lbft of torque does not help compared to your old 500 lbft truck

RE: 2013 3500 diesel pickuo

Mine has been shuttering since 2007. So whats the problem? Learn to moderate your right foot and it goes away.

RE: 50 Amp service with 30 Amp trailer

You really need to learn power managment. AC 18 amps running, refer another 6 or 7 hair dryer puts you into overload. Especially ill bet you also had the water heaternon electricity too. Switch refer and water heater to gas and be sure to turn off the AC when DW wants to use the hair dryer. Then youll be fine without any adapters

RE: Thinking of Full Timing for a Couple Years

RV can get really cramped in a hurry. Plus maintenance can be a killer if your not used to it. Consider a park model instead. Cheaper to buy, more living space, less upkeep. Of course you wont be able to move it either. We lived 8 months in our fiver while trying tonfind a house too. Lots of negatives if your parked in one place. Now, if you were full timing and moving every month or so, thats another story

RE: Getting ready for a trip.

leave it packed X2. Leave it packed and ready to go. We have always done this. After the laundry is done it all goes back in for the next outing

RE: Mold already??!!!!

Home depot sells spray that will kill the mold spores. Somewhere there is either a leak or very high humidity inside the trailer.

RE: Silver City, Idaho

Long drive on some pretty rough roads. But there are a lot of people who tow trailers in there. There is a camp ground on the edge of town for those crazy enough to tow in there. BTW the road from the west is a bit better as I remember

RE: short or long bed to tow 29' Arctic Fox 27 5L?

Longer turning radius less storage space in the bed need for a slider hitch are a few of the arguments. Personally I would not own a short bed truck. I use my truck for lots more than a trailer toter

RE: Arrrghhh! MICE!

Get some sticky mouse traps. Work like a charm. Take it from my experience.
