RE: "EASY" Cummins 6.7 2013+ oil change!

I also do my truck fluid changes but don't why as I do the job but still like to know how and feel good after the bones stop aching. Had the ford do our mustang and later saw the oil fill cap was missing and after some dusty driving. Ford guy said they don't do anything anyway but a new cap was installed at no charge. chevman

RE: 2015 Ford V-6 Ecoboost vs V8

I was driving back from the deer camp this afternoon and noticed a conventional camper weaving in and out of the fast lane passing cars and hauling balls. I thought this had to be a diesel towing this camping pulling this speed. Once I passed this camper at 80mph is when I noticed it was a F150 EcoBoost pulling this camper (28-30ft) at the speed limit of 75mph. Not sure how hard he was pressing the go pedal, but I sure was impressed. what I would call that driver would be dumb ass. chevman

RE: Ford superduty inventory ?

Well I can tell you I have seen all 3 brands being tow and one of them was our new 05 with 3625 miles on the new truck. Plugged fuel filter. I learned it was time to learn how to change our fuel filter and now have done it 13 times. chevman

RE: Ford superduty inventory ?

I am looking to order a F350 to tow my new Montana fifthwheel. Even though I've owned ford diesels in the past, I had my heart set on ordering a 6.2 gas with 4.30 gears since I will only be towing in New England and under 2,000 miles a year. Well now I am starting to second guess my decision on the gas engine even though I know it will do the job. My main reasons for second guessing is because of power and resale value although I would be more likely to keep the gas rig longer since it's cheaper to fix out of warranty. During my truck quest, I can't help but notice that the ford dealers are loaded with 2015 power strokes and also a lot of 2011-2014 trade ins. Some 2014's have less than 2,000 miles on them. It makes me wonder, are they traded do to problems? Also, is the lots loaded with 2015 diesels because people want them or because the dealer is stuck with them? I would buy the gas engine for what you feel is your towing needs. chevman

RE: Another Subj . . . TIRES

Just ordered the new tires today. Dealer called to say the build date was 1515. Alpenlite gets the bearing greased the 6th of July and then I will remove one at a time and get them installed on the wheels. I do not have a way to carry 4 61 lb tires. chevman What your truck can't handle 4 61lb tires? You have not seen the bed of our truck. I was thinking the GMC not the chev. chevman

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

My sources say no on the next Powerstroke being 1,000 lb-ft in the 2017. Also, just because you increase torque at 1,700 rpm does not mean it will effect peak horsepower at 2,800 rpm. The 900 lb-ft of torque will increase the horsepower at 1,700 rpm to 291hp, but that is still not greater than the peak 385hp at 2,800 rpm. Like what was said before, this whole "who gots the most power and tows the most" pissing contest is just about worthless to just about everyone here. If any of these diesels were not capable to tow what most owners need to while maintaining decent speeds and with power to spare then I can see the point. However, all three diesels can easily tow what most truck owners here need them to so bragging about power that you will never need or use in the real world is about as pointless as a shnit flavored lollipop. How about keeping the remaining power and capabilities while increasing fuel mileage. Do that and I will really be impressed. RAM did increase fuel economy in 2013 and bumped the power to boot. Lowered the price also???? cheevman

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

There are a ton of more important things in our lives to worrying about than worrying about a bigger engine. chevman

RE: 4th Gen Ram Fleet Review after a year in the Arctic

Nice personal insight...thanks for the information. 900 ft lbs of torque. I feel so sorry for you and 12v98 having to drive around with your little engines. I knew you should have waited. But life goes on so be happy. chevman

RE: Wireless Back-up Camera Recommendations

Why not hard wire the camera to the monitor? You want the best signal you can get or you will be un happy. We had a back up camera installed on our truck and did not buy a cheap model. I cannot tell you how happy it was for me to have it for backing out of parking sites last winter in Az. Old neck is the reason. We don't back up much with the fifth or we would have done what you are thinking. good luck on your purchase. Always best when buying new to set it up and enjoy . chevman

I see what you mean. Chris better get over and check it out. I think the big blocks are just for this site. Nice looking site with fire wood. chevman
larry barnhart 06/23/15 09:15am Fifth-Wheels

I agree that is one great looking combination. I do not like blue for me but I didn't give the couple any money so my guess is they are happy. chevman

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

My 2007 3500 RAM has far less than 900 ft/lbs torque but it handles my 30' Fiver quite well. I don't think my stock clutch could have handled any more torque than it does (clutch was replaced about 1 1/2 years ago ). Happy to see you back on rv.net chevman

RE: New to pulling a fifth wheel

We use the rv pumps and as posted above the larger diameter fuel nozzles just make a big mess if you are not paying attention. However ya have to do what is needed sometimes. chevman

RE: Alfa see ya or Alfa gold

We bought a 1999 32 ft Alfa Ideal. The gold was a ton more money but the wood work was awesome. The Ideal was missing any finish on the kitchen and vanity self edge. My cousin has a 2001 Gold and the inside is very very nice. I was thinking the see ya was built before our 32 ft Ideal unless that model name came back. chevman

RE: Using ethanol free gas.

non ethanol gas and a mix of seafoam of 1 0z per gallon sure works great for my small gas engines. I had to mow our lawn yesterday for the first time in 2 years and one pull and the engine was running. chevman

RE: fuel

I actually think they are a waste of money unless you are using your 1-ton as a commercial vehicle, say for example transporting new fivers all over the country or something like that. Having an Auxilary fuel tank does not automatically turn you into a MARATHON driver:) It just gives you more control over when and where you have to stop to get fuel, instead of a fuel guage dictating your fuel decisions:) same for us but we bought our 05 in Dec of 04 and I decided to drive to Lake Havasu to KSH and have them build a 55 gallon inbed tank that would fit in front of the airhitch and behind the tool box. 2 nights in a motel and back to Casa Grande az to get ready to tow back to wa st. Reason also was the truck was new and it would start to be worth it as we are still towing with the 05 truck. It was never a money reason but as the above post said control not the fuel guage. he is one smart feller. chevman

RE: Ram Goes to Stunning 900 lb-ft of torque

the cost to keep up with the Jones has never been my thinking. Getting to and back seems best to me. When any rv of any kind comes up to pass I give a friendly wave and usually get one back. I am careful to let them know it is not a one finger wave of course. 62 mph is my speed. So 605 ft lbs of torque is just fine for what we tow. chevman
