RE: Tires.... Keep for awhile or get them off???

I tried to explain the cheap china tires to two neighbors with new fifth wheels last March. One told the other to ignore my comments. Both had new tires this season. One had a blow out and damage, the other had to buy 4 new tires the day they arrived across the street in November. One more china tire story was another next door that had one tire blow when the new owners were taking it to their home and the trailer was empty. This was a carriage that came with duro tires rated E. The tire story will never end because of us not demanding better. chevman

RE: workhorse chassis

All you have to do is look over the passenger side front wheel ,(as it has already be stated) V8 and V10 easy, frame almost as easy. As it turned out as we all thought it is the 8.1 chev engine. chevman

RE: Thinking about Def

DEF is treating products of combustion as I understand it, specifically oxides of nitrogen. No chemist or engineer, but seems like whatever is in diesel fuel that produces NOX in combustion would have to be removed from the fuel. And on further reading, NOX formation seems to be related to high temperature combustion processes, which must be the major challenge in cleaning diesel exhaust.The only way to eliminate the formation of NOx is to remove Nitrogen from the air! Maybe if we all put it in our tires it would help!:R Even though it's fairly new here, DEF has been in use in Europe for years. Do you REALLY think the FEDS would allow companies to stop producing the stuff and make thousands of trucks non-runners?? feds thinking??? not the current model. chevman

RE: THE LONG AWAITED TRUCK IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!

Well the LONG awaited new truck is finally in my driveway!!!!! 2015 LongHorn Dually Crew Cab Aisin/4:10 combo. Oh yea rear air too. Picked it up yesterday at AutoNation in Seattle. So far with just a couple hours behind the wheel I like it. There are so many new things to learn compared to my 11 HO Dually LongHorn I traded in. I was NOT happy with the ride. The factory had 80psi on all 6 tires so I dropped the rears to 45 and it rode MUCH better. The Aisin/4:10 combo will really get the load moving easily compare to the 11 with 68RFE/3:42's. The "Full On" exhaust brake mode is awesome. The front suspension makes the 11's look wimpy! Very massive. Have a B&W RVK3600 sitting in the bed in two boxes and am anxious to get that installed and my HighwayProducts bed height tool box installed. Can't wait to hook up and really give it a workout! http://i.imgur.com/GVZZbLol.jpg I thought you bought from Dave Smith. chevman You really have no class. What has changed? He bought a Ram for I suppose the best price possible. You really have it in for any Dodge err Ram product. CHevy r ules.com/ hah/ha/ha I asked because I had a quote from Dave smith that was not worth the trip to buy away from home. Nothing more so your story is again very rude. chevman

RE: workhorse chassis

workhorse chassis

Has anybody seen a pace arrow with the workhorse chassis, Allison trannie and a V-10 ford engine?? Next door to us claims he does but I have not seen the engine. chevman

RE: F150 2.7 Ike Gauntlet

They need an ecoboost for the F250...I'd be interested in one...A 6.2 ecoboost? Maybe that would really change the need for a diesel engine for many rv'rs. It would for me "maybe" chevman

RE: F150 2.7 Ike Gauntlet

The 2.7 looks like it will be a winner in regards to power. My only complaint on the test is they use that black GMC as a chase vehicle to run interference for them, allowing the truck to change lanes freely as traffic conditions change. I would like to see how the truck accelerates when you get stuck behind an RV/semi, and have to drop down to 30 or 40 MPH. I am sure the truck would do well under those conditions, but it would be a more realistic test if that is what you are looking for. I agree but probably all of the test get the same help. It isn't a real life test but fun to watch. chevman

RE: Casa Grande resort

With little doubt, I believe Palm Creek RV & Golf resort is the best in Casa Grande. Most other residents hear during the Winter season rate it the best in the nation. I have yet to find anything anywhere else the equivalent. From everything we have heard and saw when we toured this park, it is a bit like being back in the military! Very regimented and ran with an iron fist, in a true top down approach. There is a true divide between RV's and Park Model owners. Chris it is possible we have 4000 people here in Palm Creek. We have a 2001 alpenlite and never had any comment on it's age. BUT the new owners have decided to let the doge control the park and folks are very pissed that bought park models in the non pet area but now have dogs next door. It was a business decision and parks are a business. So now the problem is the pet owners are the real problem. People think they dogs can rule their and our lives now. Might be the end of our stay after next season anyway. The Casa Grande rv resort is very nice as was the question. chevman

RE: Tow Haul.......When?

In 2003, tow/haul may have been the new name for O/D off. If tow/haul locks out O/D in the '03 GM as it did in some Rams in between O/D off and real tow/haul mode, it could affect fuel mileage and I would be inclined to turn it off on flat no wind roads. Tow Mode did not lock out the fifth gear on our 2001 3500 chev and to the original poster there is no good reason not to use TM when towing. chevman

RE: Parasitic loads - GM trucks & SUV's

We drive our 05 duramax during the winter months and then it sits in our garage for 6 months. Never had a battery problem until we replaced the radio for a aftermarket radio and cd player. Batteries run down very quickly now but a trickle charger keeps them charged. batteries have been replaced 2 times. chevman

RE: Breaking wheel studs

One other possibility that I just thought of. If a shop used a pneumatic gun even once on the lug nuts, they could have fatigued the studs with an over torque situation and they all should be replaced. 4. What TucsonJim said ^^^! Chris Yup! Sounds like good ol Les Schwab at work. Watch them, they use the impact to run the nuts up then hit the studs once each and the torque wrench does not rotate! Bottom line they are over torqued before the torque wrench is applied. Exactly how it was for me. chevman

RE: Are you dissatisfied enough to change your hitch?

having had our easyrider/reese 20K air hitch since 2001 it would be tough to replace for us. chevman
