RE: Free oil changes gimmick.

The dealer I bought my 09 from does have true free lifetime LOFs. 6 years later, they are still changing the oil on my truck. Some dealers apparently have "fine print" in their free lifetime LOF (which isn't really free for the lifetime) There's no such thing as "A Free Lunch" or in this case "A Free Oil Change". Some dealer specific programs really don't have a bunch a strings attached, but in general I agree. Someone, somewhere is paying for it. Now regarding the "horrible" oil changes on Rams vs the user friendly Fords..... I got 3 words......Pwerstroke Cab removal! Lol haha. Have a good day Fish and quit getting all the retirees riled up! U know we're just jealous we still gotta go to work tomorrow! I just find it funny that these retirees who sit around the campground and talk about how good their daily driver is. :S Just two brands have issues with the other brand???? chevman

RE: Dump Valve Lubricant

When our black water valve becomes hard to pull and push I drain the tank and pour a gallon of vegetable oil down the toilet and wait for as long as I can and then pull and push as fast as possible as the oil drains though the valve. Has worked for every time. chevman

RE: What to look for when shopping for a truck to tow 5th Wheel?

I just finished a long bike ride in the rv resort we stay in each winter since 2002. I was surprised how many large fifthwheels with a f-150 or a 2500 pickup of any brand sitting along side of a larger fifth than our 35 ft alpenlite. chevman

RE: GM trucks take top spot for the year !

Yawn, who cares. Next report will favor Ford, then back to GM, then Ram will get a nudge... Don't tell me who does the best when the vehicles are brand new. I want a report that details what the numbers look like for 5 year old truck in the 100K mile range. That would be something that's actually worthwhile to report on. They're all good when brand new. Just a report on our old 05 duramax. We just had a 3700 mile trip to Washington st and back to Az. First time I have driven this truck solo on any long drive. It is still a new truck to me with 80,000 miles and drove like a race car . Happy as heck to have this truck but of course I will not test any new trucks of any brand. happy is good. Nice to see good numbers for everybody. chevman

RE: Battery Load Tester

The motor on my 2005 Dodge diesel was not kicking over as fast as it had been the last few days. got back from Christmas vacation and it would not start, I disconnected each positive lead from the batteries and charged up each battery. next day took it down to the auto parts store to get the batteries check as they were installed on October 2011. Sales clerk disconnected one positive clamp, then using a Battery Load Tester checked both batteries, both batteries test bad under load. so I bought new batteries. but got $60 rebate on the old ones. however, after I got home I got to thinking, even thought he showed me they failed on his "battery load test machine" I really did not understand why they were still starting my truck after the battery recharge I gave them the night before, if they wre bad. also, if one battery had gone bad, what was the likely hood, both batteries were bad??????????? however, if one was bad I was going to change both out for new batteries. I am now thinking about buying me one of those Battery load test machines. anyone else have one and use it, was I taken in on the old bad battery load test trick, maybe I should have had him test these new batteries I bought on his machine, before I left the premises ?????? ah well, the old truck starts fine now with plenty of zip, To me you did the only correct thing to do. You bought 2 new batteries. chevman

RE: My towing "faster" experience.

Towing West on 40 with a 40 mph head wind. http://i.imgur.com/JiONELIl.jpg Looks like it is sucking fuel from the gauge. Not messing with ya just seeing it going to E chevman sitting in the snow at this time at home. SUCKS

RE: Inflating tires 10lbs over?

I worked with a man for 10 years that told me to go to the max and add 12 lbs. I made no comment because in 10 years his ideas usually sucked. chevman

RE: Pull in slides in wind?

My thinking is if a slide needed to have jacks to help hold them steady I would take that slide in for a wind issue. Better to be safe than sorry. chevman

RE: propane question(s)

We have been wintering for 14 winters and only one stay in Camp david below Benson did we have any heat on during the night. Now that our bottles are 14 years old refilling them is a problem according to the law. I will fix that problem when we are back to Arizona soon. chevman
