Anyone run Nitto Tire on their Tow Vehicle? I have a 06 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually. Pull a 34ft 5th wheel. I am looking at the LTX Michelin but stopped at Big O Tires and they were trying to sell me the Nitto tires but they also carry the Michelins LTX. Give me your opinions.

RE: Dogs in bathrooms

I own a certified Therapy Dog (Therapy Dogs International) don't confuse a Therapy Dog and a Service Dog, a Service dog has rights to go where a person can go but a Therapy dog can not go the same places without permission. A Therapy Dog is a dog that is very calm and friendly to all people and is very easy to be controlled. Loves to be petted.

RE: Less fuel stops

I have a 100 Gallon Transfer tank/toolbox combo in the back of my Dodge (total onboard fuel = 135 Gallons) and can get to Yuma easily from OKC without having to stop and buy fuel but I have to stop and pump the fuel, I have an external electric pump instead of the gravity feed. What I have heard is if you have a fuel mileage readout in your truck it could create a check engine light due to the fact that the trucks computer sees that for a long time your tank remains full and confuses the computer and throws a check engine light thinking something is wrong.

RE: morryde rubber suspension equalizer failure

Its called Crawling underneath and do a Regular full inspection of the under carriage including the Rubber springs. I do believe MorRyde includes in their informational material to do regular inspections looking for deteriorations and cracks. Eliminates breakdowns on the road.

RE: Trailer Suspension Upgrade / Help

I have a rear kitchen and had your same problems but added the MorRyde IS Suspension and solved all my problems. You may not have the money or out of your budget but its the only thing going to solve your problems. Love it and MorRyde was great to deal with.

RE: Good Sam Extended Warranty

And that's why when mine expired I did not renew it no matter how many times they call me to renew it, And you can be sure I tell them why. GS Extended warranties are worthless.

RE: odd water pressure

I would say that as water gets hot in the tank it creates pressure and maybe that's why you may have more pressure on the hot side.

RE: Airconditioners

I had the same problem and found out that the convertor was going bad, remember the starter in that unit is powered by 12 volt so have your convertor checked. the fan on it would run but the compressor would not start. does your 12 volt lights flicker every so often?? that was the beginning signs of my convertor going bad. Its worth a check.

RE: Think I will keep mine a little longer

Yep, me too. After seeing what they sell for now and I look at mine that is very well maintained and always stored indoors plus everything works just fine as well as looking practically new and decals looking great. It can do the same thing the fancy ones do and pulls down the road just as well as the new ones. Best thing yet, ITS PAID FOR !!!!!! 2004 Keystone Everest 293p (rear kitchen) Moryde IS Suspension & Pin Box

RE: Dually rear tire wear

Diesel's put out a lot of torque to the rear tires don't accelerate so hard it just peals off rubber.

RE: Help in Yuma

My father in Law has a place in foothills and when he bought his lot they just hired some Mexicans from the area, that was 20 yrs ago. He now has a double wide 36 ft park model on it. with enough room to park one Rv also. Good luck.

RE: Double Towing with my rig (pics updated 5-13-2014)

This is what a State trooper told me, many RVer's confuse the 70 ft rule because that is for Commercial trucks and an 5th wheel rig is private vehicle and the 70 ft rule does not apply. In Oklahoma the vehicle code book distinctly say any PRIVATE vehicle towing any combination over 65 ft is a violation. many have pulled 70+ just have never been stopped. don't confuse the max length law with a private rig. Check with a commercial trooper.

RE: My new truck has arrived !

Just had my truck worked on at a local Turbo & Injector shop here in OKC and in our conversations about some of these new trucks they told me they do not work on Ford 6.7 as they say the Cab of the truck has to be removed to do almost anything under the hood and they didn't have the equipment to remove the cab, Might ask your dealer.
