RE: Becoming diesel gunshy

Most folks that have TRUCK opinions (from what I see on these boards) don't have newer trucks. If your truck is 5 years old then you don't have current tech. That said, go drive and review the new ones you will easily see the difference between then and now. I will not even go close to a new truck at our dealer because you are correct. chevman

RE: Pet Resorts, Not RV Resorts

Our rv resort for the last 14 winters has decided to add more pet areas and now some dog owners seem to feel their dogs can use the showers in the restrooms and go into the non pet areas and rub their noses in our faces and seem to know they don't belong. Of course the problem is the owners. fleas have been seen in the laundry now with the pets have their own washers. Kinda sucks big time but money talks. chevman

RE: Raising a 5th wheel without a jack

For less than the price of a Trailer Aid, I bought a 6 ton, low-profile, bottle jack that stays in my FW. I jack between the u-bolts and don't have a problem. Lyle Will it fit between the ground and the bottom of your axle with the tire flat? The terrain is not always flat asphalt when a flat occurs that is another positive to the TrailerAid. guess you forgot how to dig!!!! chevman

RE: 2015 Ram 3500 vs 2015 F350 diesel mpg test

Wish the lie o-meter reading was shown on the ford. chevman

4.10 was always the better ratio but the 3.73 works great for what we have. chevman

RE: Gas VS Diesel F250

I rode in a new F-250 diesel last week. It would be tough to fine a nicer or quieter truck. chevman

RE: 2017 Superduty Spied

Of the 3 brands pretty doesn't fit but nice does and none looks better than the other two. Just how I see them. However when you spend the money for a new truck is best to think what is needed to be happy. Happy is good. chevman

RE: Best RV Wax

I've been researching this too. In searching the forums Red Max Pro 3# / Zepp - there was a lot of discussion about this but I never could figure out why. It is a floor restoration product people were hot about using on RVs a few years ago. "Searching the forums", and Red Max Pro - sometimes simply called "RMP" in threads....... If you haven't already - Make sure you search the archives for threads over 12 months old. (Don't limit it to trailers) There was LOTS of info on RMP and the several steps for "prep" prior to using - like the use of BKF - "Bar Keepers Friend, etc.). Several posters with "before and after" pics - (I recall a Class C MH) as well as follow-up info to/for renewing the finish. The above is just an "FYI" - not an endorsement - P/M-ing one of the posters might work for an update for happy/unhappy follow-up. ************************************************** To buff or not to buff? A few years ago I ws at the (So.CA) Orange County Labor Day Cruise. Mr. "Car Crazy", Barry Meguiar - his film team and products trailer - were there "as usual". I was wondering the same thing (as the thread) - and caught him at the Meguiar's Trailer. One of his employees gave me the name of their product to use, as well as recommending buffing - writing it down on the back of a business card.....while Barry observed and nodded in agreement. Edit: Tracked down the Meguiar's card. His recommendations for mildly oxidized gelcoat 31' 5th wheel, which he wrote on the back, inc'l the numbers: 1. "Rent a dual action polisher". Said you could buy one (including the one they sell), but no need to do that. 2. "Buy 3 yellow foam pads". 3. "Use a cleaner wax". Nope - he didn't write down which one and/or if he did verbally, I don't recall which..:( However - - (the card is for) the Meguiar's Customer Care Center: "Help lines open Mon-Fri, 6AM - 6:PM Pacific time". Call for additional help and/or info. - (800) 347-5700 BTW - Everything said about 303 Protectant is "right on"!!..:C . I was one that did the red max pro. It made the 2001 alpenlite look great for 3 years but then the flaking started. I removed the red max and used Polglow that is made for boats and the result was the same look as the red max. I might never wax another rv again but will know more in 2 to 3 years. Probably will redo the poliglow this summer as recommended. chevman

RE: Pickup truck tow vehicle stability tests

You would have to have a serious thinking problem if thinking a SRW could be as stable and a DRW on a heavy fifth wheel. chevman

RE: Ram 4500/5500
