RE: Boiling point: How much can your diesel auto trans handle?

Thanks for the links. I have always wondered how far I can go with my 6.7 CTD before my tranny started feeling bad. I did change to Amsoil synthetic ATF and will be installing a trans temp gauge before next season. Good read.

RE: New to us 5er

Congratulations on your "new" fiver. Being a 2013 model makes the tires at least 4 years old and the trailer hasn't been towed anywhere. Along with the fact they are probably Chinese cheapo tires, I STRONGLY recommend replacing them prior to hitting the road. Check out Maxxis M8008 ST tires as they are a proven high quality trailer tire. While they're changing tires out, you might have the wheel bearings repacked with new seals. Best of luck and I hope you enjoy years of fun with your new fiver.

RE: Buy new Forest RIver on clearance?

Those are both good looking trailers! What options do they have? If you like the floorpans, go for it.

RE: airstream ride?

Airstreams pull nicely because of their aerodynamics AND their Torflex suspension, without needing shocks. Most of the AS can be towed with the newer half tons, which ride better than 3/4 & 1 Tons. The latest gen RAMs have coil suspension and ride really smooth as compared with their previous gen trucks. Test drive the half tons by Ford, GM, Toyota, & RAM and decide for yourself.

RE: Carolinas pull through overnight sites near 95

Exit 90 off I-95. Raleigh Oaks RV Resort or Exit 61 Fayetteville RV Resort. Both have long pull thru sites. Both are EZ on and off I-95. Both are really nice, clean RV park's with nice amenities.

RE: 8 cylinder or 10 cylinder

You can never have enough horsepower, especially in a motor home. Go with the V-10. You might not always need the extra power, but it's better to have it and not need than need it and not have it.

RE: Grand Canyon Trailer Village

We were there for a week in August. I found the people working in the check in we're very friendly and accommodating. If there's another site available when you get there and ask, you should be ok.

RE: So hotttt

With the high humidity, the coils could also be freezing up restricting air flow. Go up on the roof and look at the coils to see if there is ice accumulation on them.

RE: New Vietnam memorial in Chicago

I loved visiting Chicago, I grew up in a small town South of the city. I brought my family to Cubs' games and pizza off Michigan Avenue and Christmas at Marshall Fields. Until Illinois recognizes North Carolina's CCW, no Chicago OR Illinois for me. Being a vet from the Nam era, I appreciate anything to keep those vets' names in front of the public s' eyes. God Bless them.

Mounting an outdoor sensor

We have an indoor/outdoor thermometer mounted on the wall next to DW's chair. I place the outdoor sensor under the right slide on a ledge. Unfortunately, I have sometimes forgot to bring it in when breaking camp. 3 sensors later I figured I should permanently mount the outdoor sensor outdoors; but where and how? Should I place it in a plastic sandwich baggie and zip tie it to my bike rack? If you have an outdoor sensor, where and how did you mount it?

RE: Towing question

You can get a good deal on a new RAM 1500 w/5.7 Hemi, but think about a diesel, too.

RE: 2011 dodge Cummins 6.7 turbo failure

There are quality reman turbos for <$2,000, some with a 2 year warranty. Might be worth checking out. Stay away from Cardone, though.

RE: New Vietnam memorial in Chicago

I would love to see it. Too bad it's in Chicago, a place I can't and won't go with my family. Thanks for the picture, though.

RE: Slide out operation and maintenance

If you go to Lippert Industries' website you can find which system you have and why you can do to service it and adjust it. https://www.lci1.com/support-slide-outs/

RE: Gas mileage on dodge 2500

Are you calculating your mileage manually after filling the tank? Or reading the MPG from your display monitor? Calculate your MPG using a pen & paper (or calculator) when you fill the tank and use the driven mileage. The display MPG is not as accurate.

RE: Miracle Whip vs. mayonnaise- what's your flavour...?

We have Dukes in our house, but when DW isn't looking or I'm making the tuna salad, MW is the way to go. Dukes is a Southern mayonnaise made and sold in the South, that's why it's Southern. Of all real mayo, Dukes' has them all beat.

Dog poop in truck bed

OK, I admit it. I like messing with people. We recently stayed in Trailer Village at Grand Canyon. I had to park my pick up in a marked area about 30 yards away from our site. While returning from a morning walk with our dogs carrying two little silver bags of their poop, we walked by my truck, I paused and looked around, then dropped the two bags into the bed of the truck. I knew some people were watching me and I can only guess what they thought when they saw me drop off my presents in the bed of this truck. Nothing was said, but I felt the heat of their gaze when walking back to my fiver. As a famous Bunny would say, Ain't I a stinker?

RE: Carolina or bust

As already mentioned, stop off in the Western part of NC and set up in a CG in or near the mountains. Awesome trout fishing. PM me for further details.
