RE: Trouble seems to follow us...

We got about 30 miles from Chama, NM and vehicle message came on stating "cleaning exhaust filter. I am confused. My 2013 has never given me a message when regen is going on. Only way I know is increased RPM when stopped.

RE: Tire defect?

Seen those indentations many times but don't remember it being that close to the tread.

RE: tire blowout

RE: Another tire damage thread

You guys do know Michelin has a recall on the LT235/85 and LT245/75 BFG Commercial T/A and the same sister Uniroyal Lerado HD-H tire in the '08 to '10 era. April 2010 to mid-2012 to be exact

RE: Another tire damage thread

I have the same tires, and yesterday noticed some vibrations, so I better check mine out. Thanks for the post. Please post your findings. I would take them to a dealer and have them checked. My Commercial T/A's on my truck developed a small vibration on the rear and quickly grew worse.

RE: Another tire damage thread

Had the same problem with BFG Commercial T/A's but they were on my camper. One had a thrown tread like yours but it lost air. Two more had broken belts. When I posted several others had failures of the same tire. My 245/75R16 LE on my 2006 D/A were on the recall a couple of years ago. Wondering if this is a pattern of failures with the BFG tires.

RE: New Duramax Question

ATF needs to be changed every 24 months with the dealer supplied TES 389 or every 48 months with TES 295 which is available at Allison shops. The former fluids engineer for Allison who helped develop the TES295 says that a drain of the transmission pan and refill with Transyd then another drain and refill with Transyd will give you an equivalent of a full change of transmission oil. After that Allison does not recommend any further change. An occasional oil analysis may help to tell you how it is holding up. He has an open post in the Class A forum and uses the name "hzjcm8". Lot's of good reading. Of course everyone can change their oil and often or as long as they wish.

RE: SEC Dominates Best Tailgating Schools!

Bags-LSU needs a lot of work to be successful this year. Most games can go either way and LSU almost learned that. Wisconsin played a good game and I don't believe LSU took them seriously until half way thru the 4th quarter. They and myself were surprised at the spped Wisconsin had on defense. Watched the 'Bama game. I cry every time they win.:o Typical Saban game plan. Play a decent game in the first half and then run the ball on the opponent. You can see any team that plays 'Bama becoming worn down as the second half continues.

RE: Wheel Question

When buying new lug nuts make SURE that the taper is correct and that the edges of the hex does not hit the inside of the nut holebefore tightening up. I bought new chromed extended lug nuts from Pep Boys and the edge portion of the nut contacted the side of the hole before the taper hit. Heard a noise coming from a wheel, pulled over and 2 lug bolts broken and the remaining nuts were loose.

RE: My Epic Repair Project

Nice pictures and thank you. Keep an eye on the tubing in frame 57. Those type of hose you have is relatively hard and in some cases will not seal well or start to leak after some time.

RE: Austin, TX to Orlando, FL

Seven hours to 482 hours is too optimistic. You would have to average 70 MPH which is too dangerous pulling anything. You can not average that by car. When my son was at the University of Florida it was 600 miles. All interstate and drove that at least 30 times. Never did better than 9 1/2 hours for 600 miles and that was very tiring by car with another driver with me. I pull at 60-62 MPH and average 50 MPH with necessary stops and traffic.

RE: Pin box is rubbing on hitch

I wouldn't grind,weld or anything else to that hitch. Something is wrong and the factory needs to help you get it resolved.

RE: Austin, TX to Orlando, FL

LA or MS always, one or the other or both, have the road torn up near the Mississippi river bridge. So it seems like there is always a traffic jam, the east bound lane was backed up for miles when we went thru going west. Stay on I-12 when you get near New Orleans. No construction at the Mississippi River Bridge in Baton Rouge but it is the only place on I-10 between California and Jacksonville Florida where it turns into 1 lane. Construction south of I-12 going to N.O. but you should take the I-10/I-12 split east at B.R. and avoid N.O. Watch speed limit in B.R. on I-12. East bound traffic is heavy from about 3:00 P.M. until about 7 P.M. and should be avoided. Road is very bad near mile marker 25 at Lake Charles and east of Lafayette for several miles. Careful going east before you enter the tunnel at Mobile. The curve before the tunnel can be challenging if going beyond posted speed limit. Road is very bumpy for several miles east of Lake Charles near mile marker 25 and east of Lafayette until the Basin.

RE: places to eat in Branson

Right downtown near the huge 5 and 10 cent store, is the Farm House. Great down home cooking and their blackberry cobbler is awesome. It's so popular that when you place your food order you need to tell them if you want cobbler for dessert, as they tend to run out. X2 on the Blackberry Cobbler. Have them heat it up and add some Blue Bell Vanilla on top. Stopped there one day and ordered just the Cobbler for lunch. We have found everything good

RE: Need 50amp at the Ranch, which romex ???

If your friend installs a 30AMP make sure that it is not wired for 220V/240V. Happens quite often and your camper is not designed for 30AMP 220V/240V.

RE: waste tank repair?

Had a leak at same location on previous rig while on the road. I sanded the spot and applied several layers of JB Weld. Worked for 6 years.
