RE: 6-7- 8 k axel ratio?

Probably bigger brakes. True when we bought the new 35 ft 2001 alpenlite. chevman

RE: Front cap faded.

Veebyes. Nice idea. I have bragged and with will about the poli glow I have used for a few years. However I did comment here I think last spring about a very faded brown gel on a 2014 fifth. It had become tan on the drivers side while the opposite side was like new and very brown. He had done the left rear using poli glow with the company giving him instructions. He has arrived this month and the result was it still is a light tan. I am sure he is disappointed and soon I will visit him. We talked a lot about his problem at that time. He also had the white roof treatment done but it needed more work in February and again last week. He doesn't seem to have any good luck. chevman

RE: Shock absorbers on 5th wheel

I changed our 2001 alpenlite shocks during the summer. Big difference on the push and pull from old to new. No leaks. I just felt it was time for a change. chevman

RE: Torque wars continue in the diesels

I still feel the Cummins engines are made for many applications and nothing wrong doing so and that does not make them better than other brands just a great company helping to make America Great. chevman

RE: Torque wars continue in the diesels

I have said this for years. Cummins has made some bad engines so nothing is perfect, chevman And so has GM and Ford. All of them have also made some good ones. Yes this is true for all brands. chevman

RE: Torque wars continue in the diesels

And towing just got easier with the medium duty 6.7 Power Stroke and Torque Shift transmission. Who besides ford uses it in a MD application? Why does that matter? Cummins is an engine manufacturer who sells their engine to truck manufactures. Ford is a truck manufacturer so it should not be surprising that they don't sell their engines to other competing truck manufacturers. That would be stupid. I have said this for years. Cummins has made some bad engines so nothing is perfect, chevman

RE: Hitch Recommendations for 2017 Ford Puck System???

I would never be without an air ride hitch myself. The ride is night and day Here is my B&W with AirRide. Honestly don't see it possible to be a "night and day difference" with what you have. https://i.imgur.com/XvxKnQsl.jpg I feel the same. air is air. chevman

RE: 2002 8.1 L crankshaft position sensor

The NSB switch was the problem with many including our 2001 8.1 chev. chevman

RE: Grand Design

I feel it only matters to who might have a non rear cap and because of this I don't care what they have. Not important. chevman

RE: Very Informative video on choosing a 5th wheel trailer

some items were scary to me. Under size axles and cheap tires. Something I added before I was told from anyone. Thanks for the video to the OP. chevman

RE: Towing > 40ft - drw vs srw?

We see what side winds do for the rv's including TT's and MH's. We know we are not what we see the styles mention above. Problem might be faster driving than we tow as they are going around us. Saw this on the trip south in Oct so I remember how they swayed left to right. Looked like hard work at the wheel. 4 rear tires for us. chevman

RE: Towing > 40ft - drw vs srw?

neighbor that arrived a few days ago has a 2012 2500 GMC. Very large landmark and a small trailer behind from Canada. Might ask carefully how it tows so much weight. 4 rear tires for me. chevman

RE: Chucking?

Cheapest way to prevent chucking? Don't buy a RV. Seriously, have nothing of the sort w/ our B&W Patriot. Or a Hensley TrailerSaver air hitch - "the name says it all". Neither have we with our easyrider /Reese airhitch. chevman

RE: American Tire

"Best service you can find IMO and always competitive on price and will normally match Costco" Agreed! My experience is they DESTROY Costco on price. Prior to 2013 I bought all my tires from Costco, one price check saved $$$. not the same for me as both were within a few dollars. chevman

RE: Rain noise...Alpenlites are so loud...

"Hard" Roof? Fiberglass? Probably. And...FWIW, I think you're better off with that than a rubber roof. My OPINION. Yeah...a heavy downpour will produce noise. Especially while trying to sleep in bed. Like 1000 little gnomes with little hammers up there. Grin and bear it. what the OP is saying is her alpenlite has a hard strong roof that is rubber. I tell others our alpenlite has a roof that is liking walking on concrete . I have walked of fifths that go up and down between the roof trusses. We have had 2 TT's and one other fifth before the alpenlite but never felt a hard rain didn't make a lot of noise. chevman

RE: 6.5 turbo diesel hard starting

I had a air bag service light come on so over to the chev garage for the fix. After I was back to the rv park my wife said wow did you have a lot of work done. Between the 2 pages for my work another work order was stapled in. Problem for this 14 ram was hard starting. The fix was tighten the battery terminals. Probably any diesel truck needs tight terminals for starting. chevman

RE: Ram 6.4 or GM 6.0?

I've got 96k on my 12 Chev 6.0. About 30%of that towing a 13.5K 5th wheel. I don't abuse it but it is a truck. Still haven't replaced tires or brakes both look good. The only bad thing is I don't think it has a cabin filter, at least I haven't found one. If you plan on towing over 10-11k go for the 4.10's. The 60/40 bench seat was more comfortable than the buckets when I tested one. Those brake pads are amazing. I'm at 210k on the original pads. Not many trucks can go 96K miles on tires. chevman

RE: ? Concrete Pad Question

I did our extension on the side of our driveway in 1998 doing 5" of concrete and 1/2" rebar at 20" square. I ran an 36 " pattern roller over for a design and saw cut at 9ft on the straight line from the roller. No cracks but last winter something happened that I can't explain. On one area the concrete had a dark look and has flaked in that area. I cured it as good as can be done. No idea what was the reason. chevman
