RE: WVa flooding got my TH

We are so sorry Jim and family. Stay calm and not make more health issues. Easy for me to said but last summer we had fire issues very close to our home but the wind changed at midnight. chevman

RE: Ford F250 6.2L V8

I tow in mountains . When the question is will it tow in the mountains my answer is yes the mountains are not an all day tow and if the speed is a problem just enjoy the drive. chevman

RE: little surprise every time we dump the tanks

Before the twist on cap was invented we had a valve installed in the plumbing to have for insurance. This was a cut and glue install. chevman

RE: EVIC symbols? Bad fuel or coincidentally something else?

I do the smell and look test as I start to fill. Better than ending up on the road waiting for a tow truck with a 35 ft alpenlite . Done that once on I-10. chevman

RE: King Pin Stabilizers

I agree with N-trouble. Plus the pin stabilizer is just too much trouble. I feel it is ok to like what you have so just enjoy and go camping. our camping days are over but sit for 6 months each winter and might be the last winter for us coming up (maybe) chevman

RE: So what are folks average MPG when towing

Last 2 trip from Washington st to Az we got 11 mpg hand calculated, Pretty much this is what we have gotten on every trip including Branson, Wisconsin and Texas and then towards Az. I guess the trip back north would not be that good because the horse wants to get back to the barn. Not that we have a barn but I drive different maybe. 22,920 lbs combined. chevman

RE: Tow/Haul Mode (is it needed in my case)

I have owned and still the 2nd Allison on our 3500 duallys. One was the 8.1 gas and now the 05 duramax. I never saw any reason to not use the tow mode when towing. As one above said I have used the tow mode driving solo as it works like an exhaust brake going down mountains. chevman

RE: 2017 F350

Try towing a combined load of 33K at 75mph with some head/side winds! This pic was no head winds @ 7mpg, you can see the boost was low. http://i.imgur.com/6knkO4ql.jpg Now at 13 feet 5 inches it won't be better. I guess you know that but fun telling you. That mor/ryde sure looks strong chevman

RE: How do you avoid Bio Diesel (over B5) while on the road?

We towed to Texas before arriving for our winters stay in Casa Grande. Pilot had B-5 but didn't notice at first so I only bought 15 gallons. Later at a FJ it was as the above post up to B-20. I filled this time because of the need. I paid attention to how the engine was running because of being a little scared. I felt later it was purring like a kitten and felt better. Our 05 duramax was not made to run bio fuel. chevman

RE: My friend calls me crazy!

From an economic standpoint, rv'ing certainly is not cheaper. Ask your friend how the smore's taste at the hotel? Ask him about all his neighbors that he got to know while sitting around a campfire. Does he go outside in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the sunrise? Or a cool beverage during sunset in the evening? I'm curious if the grilled steaks or burgers taste better in the motel than on your own grill. How many friends has he made from Canada or other northern states while spending some winter months down south? How do the raindrops sound in a motel room compared to your rv while parked in the forest? Come to think of it, when you get are everything into consideration, maybe rv'ing is more rewarding. absolutory true Lance just for instance we visited once for an rv you were interested in at our rv park. I still enjoy asking you what is going on just for fun. Never had a motel couple really say hi or maybe just a hi on passing in the hall. Now we can ask what the heck did you buy that truck for it is junk. Just a story not true but the meaning is the same for just visiting. chevman

RE: Changing battery Bank of 4 batteries--AGM?

Hello Larry, Yes, I'm having the telltale signs that my six year old batteries are going south on me. I'm going on a big trip and don't want to worry about them. It seems like it's time to change, but I'm not sure whether to change out with new flooded cell batteries or some sort of AGM. I want to stay with size 30 because all my cables (and I have a lot of them) are heavy and set for the current setup. We do just fine with our 4 group 27 batteries. we don't boondock but can using our Honda 1000i to run the battery charger plugged into the same plug that hooks to the truck. Not trying to change your mind but simpler works for me. chevman

RE: Michelin Tires

My experience with discount and Costco are this. I called discount for a price on good year 6-14's for a friend coming to casa grande az. It was a shock the price I was quoted compared to what I had just paid for ours in Wenatchee from an old time tire store. Then I bought the Michelins for our chev and all 3 were almost the same with the old time store a few buck per tire less but at the time of install the price was less than the quote and I had complete control of the date the tires were made. So now buying the new defender Michelins for the GMC discount and Costco were the same but Costco takes good care of warranty from others I have talked to. Plus for the first tire install for us in many years the Costco installed did the torque correct, not over tight using the impact wrench and doing the fake click, click using the hand torque wrench and not turning the lug nut any. happy with Costco's. The Costco store ground in east Wenatchee wash. was my play area as a kid. chevman

RE: Changing battery Bank of 4 batteries--AGM?

Sometimes I think making changes is not worth the trouble. Are you having issues with your setup to want something different? chevman

RE: Suggestions Wanted for Park in Casa Grande, AZ

we did not notice a cow smell last winter at Casa Grande. Traffic north of Casa Grande plus shooting's kinda makes us feel better where we stay but life has changed since 2008 and who knows what can happen. Nice to be in at night . chevman

RE: just waxed the fiver

N-Trouble Please do not do the red max or the zep product. Both are the same 5 years ago I bragged how great the red max looked, Same as the picture above . 2 years ago I had to strip the red max off and it was a tone of hard work that was many days doing it. I did learn some things but the problem is no UV and a yellow tint was not what I wanted on a white finish. I just removed the 5 year old red max off the front cap using the poli glow stripper. Much easier using their product. Now I am telling the truth so please do not red max your rv. Remember the old saying Money isn't everything but this time it is true. Two bottles were needed for ours 2 years ago not doing the front cap. I will do 2 applications on both sides and the rear cap. Wax removal was the biggest job 5 years ago and did I spend a lot of time doing that job. chevman I reread your comments and can add the red max was starting to yellow the 2nd season and the 3rd I removed to use the poli glow 2 years ago and will do two applications soon. The front was 5 seasons old and really did not change color much. Now that I removed the red max it was whiter . The north exposer might be the reason the sun let the non UV protect last longer. Same as our site in Az. Good luck on you choice. Lowes here stopped selling the red max but Zep is available if you decide to use that product. chevman Thx for the heads up but how do you know Poli Glow will not do the same in 5yr time? My understanding is they are not all that different and go on in the same fashion.
