RE: Full Synthetic oil in 2016 Dodge diesel

I sent a sample to Blackstone from our duramax with 11000 miles on the rotella synthetic and the report said try for 13000 next time. Not going to happen but good to hear the report on the engine. chevman I hate when I do a double post

RE: Two 6 volt vs two 12 volt run time

I was just informed that two 6 volt batteries would run the residential refrigerator many times longer than two 12 volt batteries. I wonder if this is just hype? I have an opinion on this subject and have asked this question before with no answers yet. When a 6 volt battery is bad how will the other 6 volt battery power a 12 volt system? I am happy with our 4 12 volts batteries. Sorry I can't help you. chevman

RE: Would it be worth it to trade??

No reason to replace all 8 when a couple exhibit a poor spray pattern or the pintles are leaking. Seldom do you replace all 8. One thing about earlier Duramax's is they are touchy with fuel filtration.....and Allison's require regular maintenance. I need to know the regular maintenance . I change the spin on trannie filter every summer. Have changed the Allison fluid. what else are you thinking is needed?? chevman

RE: The real HP/TQ numbers this is going to hurt!

I went to the 2017 towing video also, where they tested the same three. All did a great job, all are capable of handling most towing needs. I like the looks of all three. All I can go by is my trucks performance towing my 5th wheel, and I'm happy.. I know I would also be happy with a Chevy or a Ford... Awww, fresh air and no arguing is really nice:) Jim Jim you have a history buying new and trading almost new trucks. My guess is 2019?????? I was worried reading about heavy rains in what I thought was your area a while back but you didn't post. don't forget today is Saturday. chevman

RE: The real HP/TQ numbers this is going to hurt!

The new 2018 Ram numbers are out LINK "If you have your eye on a 2017 Ram 3500HD equipped with the optional turbocharged 6.7-liter inline-six diesel engine with an intent to tow, then we’d recommend you wait to sign the paperwork. Next year’s truck equipped with the Cummins-sourced diesel engine will be available with a massive 930 lb-ft of torque—a gain of 30 lb-ft over the torquiest 2017 Ram 3500HD." Maybe your story to wait will hurt the ram sales now. Might be a great time to buy now. Enough power for most guys maybe. chevman

RE: Gear upgraded, 3.08 to 4.10

two brothers stopping at the alpenlite factory on their trip south. Both had the same fifths and trucks but one had the 4.10 and one had the 3.73. The 4.10 always used 5 more gallons of gas at every fill up. chevman

RE: Chinese Vehicles

We were about to test drive an envision Buick because it felt like a premium luxury car but as the license was about to be installed the door sticker said made in China. We ran from that idea and felt the 2018 equinox felt the same. Not USA made but not from across the pond . Then the new car had china made tires but not for long. chevman

RE: Major Repairs

If I was not sure of what to buy I would go to an rv park and maybe find the truck you want and visit with that owner for his opinion of the towing power. when the first 6.2 ford gas engine came out I talked to that guy and he had a Teton 36 ft fifth. He was tired of the ford diesel he had (good reason for that comment) and with the less power he was very happy with the towing experience. chevman

RE: Gear upgraded, 3.08 to 4.10

We changed our 1990 chev van from the 3.42to the 4.10 because we bought a 22 ft TT. Doing the speedometer ratio change the man burned up every guage in the dash. It made the 350 engine tow with out having the pedal to the floor. chevman

RE: Flies, Flies and more Flies

These might not come in full auto but at least you can have some fun. Bug-A-Salt I have 2 of the salt rifles and it is a lot of fun. chevman

RE: 2018 Ram

Just drove past our local dodge dealer and the lot is loaded with trucks. Might be good deals on the 2016's that would be a great truck for their needs. All the power only works for the need of the owner. Probably the same for the other brands having their lot full. chevman

RE: Washington State parks over crowding

We have definitely noticed a huge increase in traffic on I5 even in our local Bellingham area. Took the wife to SCCA last Wednesday and took 3 hours to do the 90 miles. Stop and go from Smokey Point until Mercer Street. Coming home was not much better. For the first summer ever, our local Private Parks are booked up and reservations difficult to get. We quit looking at State Parks years ago as our current working lifestyle doesn't allow us to book a year in advance. Camping is much more challenging now but we still manage a few weekends each year! Wonder what it will be like when we finally do retire? I can give you a heads up. go south for 6 months and after a few years of doing this ya might want to stay home and get ready for the next 6 months. it is called old age. chevman

RE: New trailer

had a visit at our local rv repair yesterday. I asked for a frame inspection during the wheel bearing work as I do every summer. I said I look but nice for your guys to look also and he said it is important now because the frames are junk and the worse he has seen in the many years of selling and repairing. chevman
