RE: Ram Eco-Diesel vs F150 2.7 TT - Davis Dam

I think there is a different driving style for different drivers so different vehicles seems to be a good thing. Some like to race and some like to enjoy the drive. chevman

RE: Rear kitchen.

We have never had a problem because of our rear kitchen. It gives us a nicer living room area and the best windows for good light. BUT we have an air hitch and trailair center point suspension on the alpenlite. chevman

RE: Ford vs Ram

Pretty sad it takes a 450 to compete with a 3500. The reason the RAM can pass the test is because it has actually made huge improvements to back up their claims. Not just keep adding on to the same old 1999 platform. Tell us why it hurts your feelings so much? I don't have that much feelings for any truck unless it stops running. chevman

RE: Ford vs Ram

Lying??? That is a bit strong. First what about this statement "However, according to Automotive News, when adding the F-450's curb weight and max payload capacity, its GVWR total is 14,061 pounds" So I guess everything the weight police said is wrong. You can just add up the numbers and ignore the Mfg's GVWR. I guess you forgot it is ok to lie in the USA. chevman

RE: Ford vs Ram

Long, Long ago a fella could go buy a truck and nobody knew why or where it came from and all was happy but that was long long ago now it has to be defended on why did you buy what you wanted. I never ask anybody how to spend my wife's money. chevman

RE: Pulled the trigger - new truck

Again thank you all for the wealth of knowledge provided in this forum. I placed an order for a Ford F450 diesel dually last night. I haven't ordered a new vehicle in 20 years and felt like a kid in a candy store. I will post pics when it is delivered. In this case I definitely bought my last truck first as so many advise doing with trailer purchases. Safe travels everyone. I may not agree on the choice of Dually but I do agree get more truck than you need! Good for you. I would guess he didn't agree with you because he bought a ford. Anyway he is happy . No I am not feeling grumpy!! chevman

RE: Filling fresh water tank before trip, good or bad?

I do it all the time we have a 55 gallon tank. I have heard of a tank falling out on the way to a camp site, and it was a brand new trailer. we were in Tok Alaska in 2004 and a fifthwheel from New York had the fresh water fall out and drag the highway. It happened early on their trip and not in Alaska. He was carrying the tank in his fifthwheel. Manufacturer told him to let it go and it would be fixed later. His traveling friend thought he was goofy to keep the broken tank so guess stuff happens. chevman

RE: Dealer's service dept frustrating me

Good for them and the call does make a guy feel better. ford didn't install the cap for the fill to our mustang and after a few days I looked at the engine and noticed the big open hole. Ford service manager installed a new cap and said they really aren't needed anyway. this was not a good answer to me and the engine was shot at 35000 miles and replaced at 50200 miles. The 200 extra miles made it out of warranty and ford was so sorry for our troubles. chevman

RE: Dealer's service dept frustrating me

I do something each summer to our 05 chev so this summer was flush the radiator and new antifreeze and use distilled water that I would supply. I made a big deal about the distilled water and it was written on the paper work that I was doing this. 7 gallons sitting in the truck, More than needed of course. Truck was ready to pick so after I was home again I saw 7 gallons of distilled water not opened. Next day it was re done. Good chev dealership but the information didn't get to the tech or he didn't read the instructions. Stuff happens chevman

RE: Would you feel good about selling 3 YO LT Tires?

I have always thought if the tires are not good enough for me they are not good enough for another person. I do not know what happens to our tires after new tires are bought at the 5 year time limit for me. With no real wear somebody would think they are almost new. chevman

RE: Door won't close without slamming it

I rub candle wax on the latch plate and the plunger. Still works great and no need to slam. chevman

RE: how do you know when to trade

We have a 2001 35 ft alpenlite that we like as much as when it was new. My thinking is if we keep it the cost to travel will be free. Sales tax and the cost of a new fifthwheel is why I feel this way. chevman

RE: Not to toot my own horn, but I am!

Our 05 was dead on showing the fuel mileage and fuel used until 2009 when the speedometer had a problem. After a couple of re flashes it is not far off but now I do the math when checking mileage. I do know some that don't know if the dic is correct but like what it shows them. chevman

RE: Not to toot my own horn, but I am!

Nothing bad about being happy with your truck because we are with our 05 dually and can't wait to drive it when we hit the road for Arizona in Oct. Well I guess I can drive it any time I want it just sits in our garage for the summer months. chevman

RE: 4 step rv steps info

wood. I had cabinets jacks when I worked to install cabinets so I made a smaller version and it works great. I make a couple each summer to give away during the winter. chevman

RE: 4 step rv steps info

the only solid steps I have seen is this brand. http://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k543/labarn/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-07/IMAG0970.jpg chevman Yes those are SOLID! Been up and down my Aunt & Uncles many times. But I do use this to make the step more solid when people go down the steps. People seem to step hard as an elephant going down the steps and this lessens the effect. http://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k543/labarn/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-06/IMAG0899.jpg chevman

RE: Max Towing Wars - Ford vs Ram

The bottom line, Ford is still the best selling pickup. All that proves is that people like the words "PowerStroke" and "Super Duty". To me it means ford sells more truck PERIOD..... chevman You two do understand that Ford adds ALL their F-Series together be able to continue buffaloing the mindless sheep right? That includes, F-150-750, they used to say the F-150 was the best selling pick-up in America. When they lost that title they started the F-Series BS, but there are plenty of sheep out there. I have felt the same for a long time on the f sales but it doesn't seem to mean much to who prints the truck news so "what difference does it make" Period. chevman

RE: Honda Generator

Our Honda 1000i works perfect for the reason we have it but it is too small for a good rv generator. 2000 is the way to go or bigger. chevman
