RE: What is the dumbest thing you have seen while on the road?

we were going North on I-5 and the wind was hitting us from the drivers side but no problem for our 2001 dually. This was on the Siskiyou's when I saw a 2500 older truck with a much too large of a camper going to pass us. I told my wife to get ready because the truck was being twisted left to right and out of control. Two ladies were in the front seat and they passed us with out knowing what they looked like. It was bad. It was also good because I told my wife the dually would be best in poor road conditions and it was that day but we were driving under control and a proper speed. chevman

I believe it was Gale Banks doing the tractor engine story. Not that bad of story in opinion. chevman

RE: Ram 3500 DRW 6.4L Hemi "Game Changer"

I never felt everybody needed a diesel. Under 30 ft a gas engine would be my choice if it was my daily driver. chevman

RE: Break controller adjustment

Good reason for you to not like the prodigy. Never had any of those problems on 2 trucks but didn't like the voyager ever. chevman

RE: Arrogance Personified

We winter will some on our street that have MH's and anything else is just not good enough but we like what we have. Ya never laugh at another persons home or rv because that is their home. Rude never works. Most rv'rs are not rude. chevman

RE: Break controller adjustment

we have had our prodigy since 2001 and it works very good for us and no reason to think we need more but I have hit the button to change the boost at times but having worked in construction my entire working I can still push a button with out difficultly. It is important to have the trailers brakes adjusted properly. chevman It's not a good feeling to be set on 1 when out on the highway and you hit the brakes then try to bump up to 3. That is the reason I would never tow with a P2 again. A guy would have to be stupid or very uninformed to do as you think. Not how it is done I would hope. chevman Are you saying you leave yours set on one setting ALL the time? Yes but if I pull into a gravel rv park I might hit the boost to the #1 setting and back to the 2nd boost when leaving. One finger job and that it's. chevman

RE: Rubber roof maintenance

RE: Arrogance Personified

I have talked to many big MH owners and most of the time they are very nice. I really can't remember thinking any bad thoughts about them but some folks just have a way about them that doesn't seem friendly and it is just people. chevman

RE: GM Admits Fudging Payload Ratings

Lying has become the ok thing to do now. In the USA maybe not in Canada yet. chevman Without getting too politcal, I don't know about that statement Larry, back in the 60's Canada let a lot of "draft dodgers" come into their country and protected those that burned their draft cards and denounced the USA...it was fine with Canada, not so fine with US Military..condoning is the same as................sorry, didn't mean to go off topic, but that's one thing that still eats at me after all these years.........I'm going fishing....WAYYYYYYYY too much philosophy on thee threads anymore......IT'S WRONG TO LIE PERIOD!!! NO MATTER THE REASON..PERIOD!!! Ok so now do not come back with how many big fish you caught today!! have fun chevman

RE: GM Admits Fudging Payload Ratings

I call it callling out liars cheaters and deceivers. To each their own. Funny, not a single post from travelnutz in this GM thread.....he always seems to find a way to post in the RAM threads....:h ib516 don't go into politics. You will have trouble with your thinking as I would. Liars suck. chevman

RE: GM Admits Fudging Payload Ratings

Not wanting to keep this story going but some rv's including MH's have weight rating for cargo. In little print you can see if you add the awning it weight this much. Same for thermal windows etc. Little print is the key I think for nobody seeing the real numbers. chevman

RE: GM Admits Fudging Payload Ratings

If anybody is happy with their truck why do all of the stories above matter. I call it whining. Have a good Labor day everybody. Have fun and don't think about trucks. chevman

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 We had our 2001 3500 2wd dually lowered 2" in the rear and this caused some launch shudder but easy to control with the right foot. the 8.1 gas engine had 450 ft lbs so it is possible at 500 ft lbs I would think. chevman

RE: 2013 3500 diesel pickuo

My GMC 1 ton doolie doesn't do this. It's perfect. (Naturally, it's a GMC) Same here:)....Mine is perfect....naturally, it's a Ram:) how many times can a truck be perfect but traded for another perfect truck? Some things just do not go away.:h awesome ending ya think? chevman Don't know, I traded a perfect Chevy 3/4 ton 8.1/A for a perfect Chevy 2500 D/A, traded that for a perfect Chevy 3500 Dually D/A, traded that for a another perfect Chevy 3500 D/A Dually..all in LTZ trim, traded that for a perfect Ram 3500 Dually and on...What's the big deal? I don't spend money on drugs, smoking, don't drink, have a very good job that pays pretty good money, wife and I are "empty nesters".....I purchased a brand new car/truck whatever every 2 or 3 years.....guess that's my down fall....This one is my retirement truck...we'll see what we see....at 64 yrs of age, I'm in "preparing to retire in 23 months" mode...Someone stated their truck was "perfect", I stated the same thing about mine..What was wrong with that:? I know I get ragged alot for trading as often as I have, but dang, I work hard for my money, I would think, if my wife thinks it's ok, then what's the big deal...Every Chevy I owned was great, been the same with the Ram's I've owned, new or not....people buy brand spanking new cars and trucks and end up with duds...I haven't, I have no issues with Chevy or Ram, nor would one expect one to for only owning them 2 to 3 yrs, but having been on quite a few GM/Chevy forums as well as Ram forums...I've found that isn't necessarily true..some are bad from the "get go"..I now have almost 20,000 trouble free miles on this truck, tows great, is my daily driver and I'm surrounded in luxury...No CEL's, no problems...I wouldn't expect anything less, but know that isn't alway's the case, even with brand new vehicles. Jim so what's the problem getting a perfect truck every time. I see it as a good thing not a bad rap. I usually like every thing we buy . chevman
