KYB Mono Max Shocks

Just ordered a set of these shocks for my 2007 Dodge 2500 CTD. I had Monroes which were too soft, especially when towing my fiver. Anyone have KYB Mono Max shocks on their TV? If so, how do you like them?

RE: Bad back-Mattress Recommendations?

The Original Mattress Factory will make a mattress to fit your RV. You can visit one of their stores and try all their models, then give them the dimensions you want and they'll make it just for you. Easy, eh?

RE: LED headlight conversion

This is the OP. Thanks for all the responses, though as usual on here, many conflicting views I agree that LED replacement bulbs vary drastically based on brand and cost, both in quality and design. After looking at the reflector in my stock headlamp housing, I can see how an LED bulb might not be focused causing problems for oncoming traffic in my low beams. At this time, I can't afford to replace the complete headlamp housing assembly with ones designed for HID or LED lamps. SO, I think I'll study the many LED bulbs and install a pair in my hi-beams as I won't have to worry about on coming traffic and I can get a good idea on how good they'll light up the road. We'll see what happens, especially at night.

LED headlight conversion

The headlights in my 2007 Dodge 2500 are very poor, especially after driving my daughter's 2016 Toyota with LED headlights. I have aimed them with my 5'er hooked up and my airbags adjusted to keep my TV level. I saw LED H13 bulbs on Amazon reasonabilily priced I am considering. Has anyone tried these LED bulbs? Do you like them?

RE: clean new style flat windows

I've used a magic eraser sponge with water to remove spots and stains on glass and windshields. Mr. Clean is one brand name. Fine enough to not scratch the glass.

RE: Heater Core Replaced, Now Blows Cold Air

Like Krusty said, very likely an air pocket is not allowing circulation through the heater core. Touch both hoses where they enter the box, after the engine reaches operating temperature, if only one is hot , apply vacuum to the nipple where the green wire is connected. Oh, that's a hose not a wire. If the hoses still aren't hot to the touch, bring it to a shop that can bleed the air from your cooling system. Also make sure your water pump is circulating the coolant. Good luck

RE: Size of Alternator

They did offer a 90A and a 120A in 1990. Take your old alternator down to your auto parts store and compare them. The 90A should be a simple swap, but I'm not sure which 120A would bolt up. Also, as mentioned, check for excessive Voltage drop between the alternator and batteries. Even cleaning the terminals and cable ends can help. Good luck.

RE: Travel trailer "vs" fith wheel --MPG to tow

I actually get better MPG towing my Columbus fiver than I did my 26' Jayco TT. I'm sure aerodynamics plays the biggest part. Towing the Jayco TT was like pulling a big square box down the road. This is with my 6.7 CTD.

RE: Swap from St tires to LT

Hope you had the new tires balanced!

RE: Champion generators

I've got a 7 year old Champion 3500/4000. That's a good price in today's market. I have mine on the back of my fiver. I use it in the boonies, truck stops, or in storage when working at the trailer. It's run for 8 hours straight under a good load, stopping only once for fuel. It's no Honda or Yamaha, but for $250 it can't be beat.

RE: Do not buy the bed linen at CW! RANT

CW sells bras and underwear? Since when? Think they have some for my Columbus fiver?

Trailer brake shoe wear

I'll be packing my trailer's wheel bearings, adjusting the brakes, and replacing the grease seals this weekend. Anyone have an idea what the minimum thickness should be on the brake shoes? I know they're nowhere near as thick as automotive brake shoes so I would guess the minimum suggested thickness wouldn't be that much.

RE: Travel Trailer Tires

There are only 2 brands of 14" ST tires worth considering; Maxxis and Kumho. Both are quality ST tires, neither are made in China. I've used Maxxis on my last 3 trailers. They are, in mine and many peoples' opinion, the best ST tire on the market. Be sure to have your new tires balanced, too.

RE: Charlotte, N.Carolina thru or around?

Take the by-pass. Too hard to block that many lanes.

RE: Air Bag Recommendation needed

Airbags would probably help with getting your headlights back down on the road instead of into oncoming vehicles. I like my Firestone Ride-Rite airbags, helps keep me level, well, the truck, not me.

St Augustine campgrounds

We want to spend Thanksgiving week in St Augustine with the in laws. (wow, oh boy) Checking the various CG rating sites there doesn't seem to be any CGs with full hook ups that are very highly rated or well spoken of. I would think in an area so dependent on tourism that there would be at least one CG that could truly be called a "resort". Any suggestions for a nice CG with full hook up in St Augustine?

RE: Reflection or Columbus?

We have a 2013 Columbus 320RS. If I had it to do all over again, I'd buy a Columbus 377MB. We went with the Columbus because of the numerous standard features. They now come with a 2 year warranty. It had the best bang for the buck. We really like ours and wouldn't hesitate to recommend a Columbus to anyone.

RE: Age of trailer tires?

Kumho makes a quality 15" ST tire. Not made in China.

RE: Small motorcycle on the front hitch

I have an aluminum carrier from Noethern Tools. It has a capacity of 400# and I carried a Kymco 150 scooter on a front hitch. It worked well. Being that I sold the scooter, I no longer need the carrier. Hint hint.

RE: OUTSIDE SHOWER

I use it on my M-I-L as she won't fit in my indoor shower, even though it is 30"x60"...
