RE: F350: 4.30 or 3.73 Gears

He will be cruising at higher RPMs with the 4.30. I'm extrapolating a little bit, and didn't clarify. With the 4.30 gears and being able to stay in 6th gear, he will have lower RPM's than with 3.73 and being in 4th or 5th gear. Correct that there will be more leverage with lower (higher numerically) gears in the rear end... Which may allow the driver to hold a higher transmission gear longer. But that varies with each and every driving situation how one gear ratio might behave compared to another gear ratio. Strictly speaking.... For a specific road speed, given gear-for-gear comparison, the lower geared truck will always spin more RPM.

RE: F350: 4.30 or 3.73 Gears

I'm with the others, the 4.30 gears will make your pulling experience more favorable. Empty around town should be about the same mileage. Empty on the highway will get slightly worse mileage with the 4.30 gears. Towing, that lower rear end will give you more grunt from a stop and have you cruising at lower RPM's.. He will be cruising at higher RPMs with the 4.30.

RE: Have you ever been hacked on an open CG WiFi system?

No. I also doubt that the CG owner had the tools and computing power to capture all traffic so to pick out and decrypt HTTPS logins. If your Google account was compromised, most likely it was by social engineering. An email purported to be from Google is most often an attempt to trick you into compromising a login and password. Social engineering is AMAZINGLY powerful. We have this type of training at work so everyone stays aware... Ever guess how easy it is for an unknown, outside individual to get behind the counter at a bank and walk out with a computer in hand?? LOL pretty easy.

RE: Have you ever been hacked on an open CG WiFi system?

Every computer on that (non-enterprise) wireless network uses the SAME key.That's true, but the original comment that is being questioned was "there is no encryption tunnels or anything of sort by using WPA, its simply a key to get on the network,". Don't have the shared key? You cannot see/interpret the wireless network traffic. ON the wireless network WITH the shared key? You CAN see any unencrypted network traffic. Basically if you are on the same network as someone, you are open to getting "sniffed" by someone... AND subject to a MIM situation. Doubtful MIM happens at a campground. Certainly not worth the effort at a location like this LOL

RE: Running 2 a/c's

Unpopular comment coming: Presumably you're boondocking and want to run 2 AC's? Perhaps you need to seek an alternate hobby/lifestyle. Don't editorialize. Just stick to answering the question.

RE: Running 2 a/c's

I would check how your A/C is wired in your electric distribution panel. I have had two RVs where both A/Cs where on the same leg. This stupid wiring error by the manufacturer made it such that it would stall my Onan 5500. Moved the second A/C to the opposite leg on the distribution panel and all was well from then on out.

RE: Fuel Station Tank

When I had a toy hauler, I kept the fuel tank full (with stabill) all the time... Regardless of whether we were riding any time soon or not. Having 60 gallons of unleaded on board worked out great when we had an ice storm and no power for 5 days. Also nice for filling up the mower - I never had no need to have gas cans in the garage LOL I kind of miss having the fueling station - if for garage work alone - now that we have a traditional 5th wheel.

RE: 2016 Ram 3500 Laramie

For zero effort, I'd take it and not sweat $500. I have more relaxing ways to spend my time.

RE: 30 amp generator with 12 gauge wire?????

Wire size is not "fixed" for a certain amp rating. Wire size can vary for distance. The shorter you go, the less wire you can get away with. The longer you go, the thicker. Many "calculators" out there..... But I suspect for a 6 foot run, 12AWG is fine.

RE: Towing Problems-Disappointment with Duramax

Don't drive that toy through my campsite or I'll blow it to smithereens with my shot-gun.

RE: Load rating running 72 psi in Maxxis 8008 225/75/15 E's

Why? ST tires really need to be set to the Max PSI as listed on their sidewall. Heat buildup at lower pressure will kill them far sooner than necessary. The manufacturers know nothing about what they do.

RE: Toys (boat) and Class C

I've towed my toys tandem behind my 5th wheel all over OK and AR. Toys include: A pair of jetskis OR an SXS/ATVs on utility trailer. When bringing the skis to a CORPS park, I would simply pull in to campground after passing check-in guard shack.... Find a nice level/wide section of road where I wouldn't block any driveway and disconnect the skis from 5th wheel.... Take RV to camp spot... Back in... Level it... Go back and get skis and park at camp spot (leaving hooked up to truck - ready for launch). Did this for a number of years till we sold the skis.... Continue this practice today with the ATVs/SXS when it's a "4 wheeling" type of camping trip. Sometimes I disconnect. But most times I don't have to as the types of campgrounds that having riding areas are generally larger and have 75' long pull throughs.

RE: Oil prices down.Y is a quart so high?

It's amazing how naive most of you are... And how little you actually know about how things work.

RE: Sewer

When camping in freezing conditions, no tank valve (gray or black) should be left open. Only open the valve when the tank is full and ready to dump. Then ensure slickly hose is fully emptied (pickup to drain if necessary); then close valves again.

RE: If the CG office wants to photocopy your DL...

....Honestly, not everyone is out to get you. I'm getting a chuckle thanks to some of the responses.... I'll wager that some of the biggest tin-foil hat wearers here will also refuse to use online bill pay due to fear of some jerk at the bank messing it up or hacking their account... Yet they'll send a HARD COPY check across country through the hands of untold numbers of individuals wrapped in an envelope that looks EXACTLY like a "bill-pay" envelope... This check has name, address, account number, routing number AND an original signature.. Bonus points for the hand written VISA/MC account number written on the memo field.. LOL.
