RE: 5.9 Cummins Stumble

Good to hear, if mine starts to stumble again we'll check all the connections and hit them with WD40 too, But this time like I mentioned the dealer checked all electrical connections and Harnesses and the #3 still failed and then I took the injector to the diesel shop that actually installed it and they put it on their tester and the electrical solenoid was dead so it was actually the injector this time. Good travels to you

RE: 5.9 Cummins Stumble

OK, I have a 2006 5.9 and had the very same problems, No check engine light either, took it to dealer and they put in on the computer and discovered the #3 injector was misfiring (why no check engine is beyond me) dealers price for an injector was $702.00 just for the part so before I gave the dealer the go ahead I checked a local diesel/Turbo shop that has a great reputation so I took it to them and their computer showed the same thing. Their price was $350.00 for the very same injector that the dealer has (Bosch) so I bit the bullit and not only had that injector replaced but had them all replaced and new fuel tubes and had the valves adjusted too. Yes the bill was steep but after that it ran great. Then 16 months later the very same injector failed (this time it gave a check engine light), took it to the dealer and their computer verified that. I mentioned to the service manager that was the same injector that went bad the first time so he checked all electrical and harnesses and still the computer showed #3 failing, I had them pull the injector and I took it to the diesel shop that put it in 16 months earlier and they put it on their tester and found the electronic solenoid on top of the injector went bad so they gave me a new one at their cost since it was barley out of warranty and I took it back to dealer and they installed it and I am up and running. With all that said its probably a bad injector, don't waste money guessing and installing parts just let the dealer put it on their computer. But still not sure why the very same injector went out in 30 thousand miles after being replaced. Original lasted 140,000 miles. well we will just have to wait and see if it does it again. Good luck

RE: RV blinds

I had 3 blinds go bad, I removed them from the wall and found a sticker from a place in Goshen Indiana that was the original Mfg. looked up phone # and called them, Gave them the Numbers on the sticker and they sent me new ones. Originals were 7 yrs old so with the numbers they were able to match them. Not Very pricey either

RE: rear hitch for 5th wheel

You need to check what the total length of combined vehicles for Private vehicles, Too many people read the restrictions for length limits on commercial vehicles and think it pertains to their RV, it doesn't. Where I live legal length is 75 feet but that's for commercial trucks, the legal length limit for private vehicles in my state is 65 feet. I had the restrictions read to me by a state trooper right out of his vehicle code book. He told me people see commercial trucks pulling long loads and think the same laws apply to them but they don't. Ask a Trooper to check for you.

RE: firestone tires

OK, so I was wrong on the size, That's strange, the Transforce HT is not made in that size. LT236/85R16E would be the size and model name. Chris Yep that's the size, anyway, NO Problems with them.

RE: firestone tires

I run Firestone TransForce LT 235 80r 16 on my Keystone 34 ft Everest and have at least 22 thousand miles on them with absolutely no problems. I never run an ST tire.

RE: question about a really rough ride

I had the same exact problems, first I added a Trailer Saver airride hitch and then a MoRyde Pin Box and the added MoRyde's IS suspension (best thing I did)Ride is great now. The Moryde Pin box may be all you need, start with the pin box.

RE: enter the 5th wheel

With a Family of 5 I think I would look for a bunk house style 5er, I think it would be more compatible for 5 people especially for kids. Just my opinion.

RE: Suggestions for N. Ca and Oregon sights

I just returned from a trip up the Oregon Coast and my two favorite SP were Beachside SP just south of Waldport and Cape Lookout was Awesome near Tillamook. The town of Newport was cool and taking in the sights around Cape lookout are always good.

RE: Were to go to lunch in Algodones, Mexico?

Anything you eat there you want to be sure you can see it being cooked, remember they do not have any health standards to meet over there so if you can't see the kitchen who knows how clean the kitchen is they cooked your meal in.

RE: frozen sewer hose and water line

I would pour a bucket of really hot water into sinks hopefully that will at least thaw them to drain tanks

RE: Ever seen the door in the slide?

Just the amount of steps to get inside is a deterrent for the older RVer's and those with some disabilities. Far too steep and for someone like my mother-in-law who even had trouble with the steps inside leading to the bedroom which was only 2 steps I know she wouldn't like this idea.

RE: Exhaust brake service

My truck is a stick, EB stays on till I stop. When the engine is cold it comes on automatically till it warms up to at least 140 degrees then will shut off when idling but until then it stays on to help warm up engines faster. Made buy Jacobs/Cummins. Been a great brake.

RE: Northern CA and Southern Oregon Camping in April

Well I am Leaving for Calif. late Feb. and should hit the northern Calif coast by first or 2nd week of March with reservations at Cape Lookout SP just south of Astoria but other than some rain like Oregon gets it should be good.

RE: Exhaust brake service

Mine is on 100% of the time, the switch stays in the on position all the time, even when I am home driving locally around town. saves on brakes ect. Dealer told me to run it all the time. Hasn't hurt my truck at all.
