RE: retired and hitting the Road

"All these recommendations for a dually, do they ever go to a mall, or sight seeing in a big City?" YEP, fulltiming with a Dually since 11/2011. No I don't go thru drive thru's and do park out aways when shopping. Yes we go into towns you just have to be a bit creative sometimes. Has not stopped us from doing what we want. Always best to have more truck than compromising safety. My idea since 2001 when the 3500 chev 8.1 dually was purchased. Still feel the same. chevman

RE: Here we go again!

I don't miss the engine noise. Don't see or heard many in our rv park anymore. New models are great. chevman

RE: Used 5th wheel &Truck purchase advice needed.

Chuck I believe you sent me a PM asking about what you are wanting to do. I feel your truck would pull a 32 ft Augusta alpenlite as I know of many that have done so. Even one with a 94 2500 with a 35 ft triple slide Alpenlite. He did have issues stopping. My 98 had very poor brakes and one reason for trading for the 2001 chev 3500 dually 8.1 engine. I also was a construction worker for a career and loved what I did . I also know stress is bad for money reasons and a truck that can make you feel scared at times. The reason for us going dually. If you can find a great used truck or fifthwheel it should give you a great rv experience. Some issues of course with anything. Artic is a great choice but you know they are heavy for a reason. Is a fifthwheel your only choice over a TT. chevman

RE: Possible Auto Ins. Claim to Fix Bed After 5'ver Drop !

Here is my "pull test" Handle closed and LOCKED and a visual the 1" thick machined jaws are wrapped around the kingpin, it can't fall unless the hitch has a mechanical failure. http://i.imgur.com/MDvlzPGl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/3xodIEXl.jpg same look as we have but I do the pull test.

RE: '14 Ram 3500

It was have it repaired or buy back. Consumers choice. Ford never gave the 6.0 or 6.4 owners any choice but to shove it! Most that I read about used the opportunity to purchase a new RAM. Very few ever go from a RAM to a Ford or GM. I went from a ram to a chev. Not because the ram was bad just not enough gears. chevman

RE: Ford Super Duty Sets Guinness Flag Record

I agree even my silly comment but some burn the flag without Washington DC making any comments. what a mess we are in. chevman

RE: Ford Super Duty Sets Guinness Flag Record

So GM did it and now Ford, maybe RAM will tow an Italian flag, behind and even larger American flag. Probably if the Ram can get to speed quickly. chevman

RE: Oh Boo Hoo

That's it. 2016 season is over. Had about the average 150 nights onboard but where did they all go? Oh well, the trailer & the bull that pulls it are put away in a shed for at least 5 months. Actually this time it will more than likely be 8 months before we see them again. Our world for the next 8 months will be all of 20 sq miles. That is all that Bermuda is. Saving grace is that next May the Americas Cup yacht racing series really starts getting wound up & there will be plenty to see on the water. Looking forward to that with great anticipation. It still bothers me that I could not drive the 8 miles and visit you the time you were in Wa state. Wife could not be alone at that time. chevman

RE: rear axle gear ratio

My thinking is the weight of what you are towing be a reason for choosing the ratio but in doubt go 4:10. For us the 3.73 is great but nothing else was offer. chevman

RE: Ford 26 gallon tank

If a truck has a 26 gallon fuel tank and that is an issue why buy that model.. chevman ' Because it fits in my garage and crew cab doesn't. Usually this is the reason as it is nice to be in the garage. Our dually fits in our garage so I understand. chevman

RE: 2017 F350 dually with 6.7 opinions

Looks like the 2017 f-350 is the truck of the year if that means much. chevman

RE: Ford 26 gallon tank

If a truck has a 26 gallon fuel tank and that is an issue why buy that model..We did the Alaska trip in our gas chev with the 34 gallon tank. I was concerned of running low but gas was not an issue. I did have a 22 ft TT so less fuel was needed. I bought a 5 gallon safety that was never used. My thinking is buy a smaller like maybe a one gallon or two and using a funnel fill the smaller tank then pour into the truck. Lighter and no spill issues. chevman

RE: black tank rinser

I saw this so it is not from another person. MH couple were at the pool. The water came from a pipe with 4 valves. 2 for them and 2 for the MH behind them. the maintenance man had to replace 2 valves so he did and attached all of the hoses and turned on the water. So now my story is this. Do not leave a hose hooked to the black flush. MH was a total loss to be never driven or sold. chevman

RE: Mileage

mileage is important on a new truck for a while for me but then it is what it is and the roads etc make a big difference. Until 2009 our dic was perfect for fuel used and mileage. Perfect means the math agreed. Good enough now but a speedometer repair changed the numbers a little. I do heard of some big numbers from guys . chevman

RE: what happened to taking pride in your work

You can equate buying a new RV to purchasing a new house. I took delivery of a brand new Keystone Springdale this year and a brand new manufactured home this year. Both of which were made in a factory with quality control standards and with human hands. Both my new trailer and new home have had some things here and there to be addressed by the retailers I purchased them from...however, I never had the expectation that either one of these would be perfect. They both have had their quirks...you just have to be persistent to get things fixed sometimes. Overall, though, I'm really pleased with both my Keystone and my new home. So what was the price difference between your Springdale and your "Manufactured" home? "Manufactured" home is a mobile home?? How many sq. ft. in both? Manufactured home built way better than RV for less cost. I think you're getting a little personal there asking about the price difference... Yes, it is a mobile home, brand new 2014. 747 square feet in the home, 232 in my travel trailer. My new home is an entry level model (Colony Beacon). It's my first place and I'm pretty proud of it...not many other 24 year olds are living in a modest new house like I am. Maybe I have lower standards than most, but I'm perfectly happy with the quality in both my home and my travel trailer. And it may be my own personal preference, but I like that both of them were manufactured inside a factory to specific plans/codes/quality standards. I am proud of you for being a smart young feller. When you buy what you can afford that is good thinking and less stress. chevman
