RE: Say it ain't so. GM

Even 50 lbs, if it gets them greater rating than the other guys, gives them temporary "bragging rights". That say "highest rating in its class", not "we beat the other guys by 10 lbs".

RE: Ford F350 2003 - issues?

2003 was the 1st year for the 6.0 and had the most problems with them. The problems tapered off in later years. A lot of people had no problems, but I would be concerned about the early years. I did own a 2004 F350 6.0 and had virtually no problems. But would still be a little leery.

RE: EGR Failure on 6.7 Power Stroke

Yeah, idling a modern diesel engine "to keep it ready" makes no sense at all.

RE: Exhaust brakes

All of the newer big three trucks have exhaust brakes now, Ford, Chevy/GMC, and Ram.

RE: Another negative recommendation of an RV Park

Any time you see a charge for visitors you can safely assume it is per visitor.

RE: A little disappointed with GS for the first time

Would be hard for me to rate that an 8.

RE: small electrical charge on truck camper frame

You were not plugged in to AC so you do not have "hot skin". And unless you are just super sensitive to electricity, you can not feel 12 volts. Place your fingers across the battery terminals and see. I think you are occasionally generating static electricity somehow and that is what you feel.

RE: Changing Tires to Michelins?

Another vote for the Ribs. Have had mine 6 yrs and 16,000 miles, no weather cracking, and still look new. But I guess it is getting about time to replace them for age alone. Will probably put new Ribs on it before next year if I don't trade it beforehand.

RE: Closed Topics?

Not that many people search the archives. And then typically for only very specific threads/posts. And to add a new post to an archived thread would be seen by almost no one. If you want to resurrect an old subject and add new material it is best to start a new thread on the same subject so it goes back to the head of the line for new discussions.

RE: Ford vs Ram vs Chevy diesels

All this who is better junk is meaningless no matter who "wins". All the trucks are so close in all aspects that the only thing that matters is which one "you" like best.

RE: Rear kitchen.

All a matter of personal preference. We have good friends who have a rear kitchen and love it. They have never said there was any problem with dishes bouncing around. No regrets on their part.

RE: Durango to Denver

Unless he is VERY comforable with and familiar with towing in steep mountainous terrain with narrow highways, no shoulders, and no guard rails, do not go north from Durango. US 550 between Durango and Ouray is not for the faint of heart. Best go east on US 160. He will still have to climb Wolf Creek Pass which is also steep climb and high pass, but a much better highway. Two lanes all the way up, places to pull off if needed to cool down, guard rails, and only one real curve of any consequence. Simplest route is US 160 all the way to I-25 at Walsenburg and then north. Other options are north from Alamosa, but more changing of highways. If he has an aversion to steep climbs, there are other longer options.

RE: Booked Yellowstone!!!

Didn't realize you could book it over a year in advance.

RE: Suburban Hot Water Heater SW10DE

Ours does not have an inside switch for electric. Only for propane. Have to turn on the electric switch outside on the water heater itself. And remember to turn it off when returning home.

RE: Booked Yellowstone!!!

Next as in next month? Or next year?

RE: Run Gas AND Electric?

Always run both at the same time. Both gives much faster recovery rate. And electric keeps water hot enough that gas does not cycle on/off when not in use. Especially nice at night as the WH is near the bedroom window. 7 years and never a problem.

RE: Montana a Lemon?

If you have not already, go over to the Montana Owners Club forum and sign up. Lots of great help there on all things Montana. Maybe they can help steer you in the right direction to get results and correct some of the issues.

RE: Surprise for hubby, help with numbers.

You are talking about a pretty significant investment. I would suggest a hand written "gift certificate" for him to select a TT to his liking. If a TT is something he has been considering, then he may already have ideas a out what he wants and may really want to be included in the selection process.

RE: Satellite reception...... Help !!

The external coax connection most likely goes thru your antenna amplifier/switch box. You need to have a direct connection to the receiver, not going thru the amp/switch box. I only had a single external coax on mine. But that coax came into a coax wall plate with two coax connectors and a short coax cable jumpering the two together. The jumper routed the signal from the outside connection to the amp/switch box. I had to remove the jumper and connect a coax cable from the wall plate to the receiver, effectively bypassing the amp/switch box. And it worked fine. But I would have to put the jumper back in place if I wanted to use park cable. So I added a second external coax connected to a new and separate wall plate specifically for the sat connection. Look to see if you have a dual coax wall plate with a jumper across the two somewhere near the receiver. If so remove the short jumper coax and connect another coax cable from the wall plate to the receiver. If it does not work with the first connection, try the second one.

RE: Experienced RVing Dog Owner Question.. PLEASE

My opinion. If the temperature were much above 80 degrees and the sun shining, no way am I going to leave our dog in the RV without A/C running. I don't know what the temp rise of an RV vs a car would be but I don't plan on our dog being the test subject. Another consideration. How will the dog act when left alone in a strange environment. Some are very quiet. Some bark the whole time they are alone. And some will tear up things.
