RE: Hearing rumors GM and Navistar teaming up ?

Why not? Know who made the Ford 6.0? Google Ford Navistar lawsuit. See Lessmore and DirtyOil's posts. Ford had as much or more responsibility for the 6.0 failure as anyone.

RE: Rubber Roof

I would check the warranty. I think the rubber roof has a different time period. Also did you get the extended warranty? Only material defects are warranted. Hopefully the manufacturer will help.

RE: HD truck sales numbers (2500/3500)

GM Injectors

Anyone else receive their letter extending the warranty on indirect fuel injectors to 10 years or 120,000 miles? I have done a little Googling but fail to understand what the indirect inject is. I assume they are not talking about a single injector that is separate from the other 8. This would be the 8 used to fuel the engine?This is not a recall.

RE: 2005 Silverado Duramax 2500 know problems?

Check for coolant leak near oil filter. I had a leak for several months on my 2006 and I would get low coolant every couple of months. Added less that a quart each time and the light would go out. Found a drop of coolant that would hand on and above the oil filter. Never enough to drip onto drive way. Was told it was a cooler leak. Supposedly it was where it bolted to the engine and there was a replacement gasket. Could have been the cooler itself that did not have a replacement gasket.

RE: Demco slider owners BEWARE!!!

Let this be a warning to everyone to make sure that when they purchase something they register it. Does not have to be RV related. I agree that this is a dangerous item and not chastising the OP nor defending Demco but it has to be registered for Demco to know when and where it was bought. Many have failed to be contacted on tires recalls because the dealer often does not register them.

RE: re-packing greasing the bearings / axle

One of the things I don't see very often is people speaking about how much grease should be used. The EZ lube system speaks about greasing until fresh grease is seen. Over greasing causes the grease to churn and can cause them to overheat. If one could see the amount of grease seen in a shielded bearing they would see how little grease is used and needed. Pop a shield on a shielded bearing the size of a trailer bearing and the amount would be as small as a marble.

RE: hitch or spray liner first?

Install the hitch, then remove it do the bed liner. Then reinstall. That way the holes get sealed too If the hitch installer knows what he is doing he can lay out and drill the holes then install liner and never put the hitch in the bed.. Install hitch for the first time after the liner is cured.

RE: Roof problems

Check with Keystone anyway. In mid June I saw a new Keystone pulled into Bucee's in Luling with the roof pulled back like that and it continued 5 fet back. Owner said first time out and had picked up from the dealer only a few days before. It may well be an issue as C-Bears said.

RE: re-packing greasing the bearings / axle

If it's impossible to get grease to the inner bearings without disassembly or an easy lube ( that's where the spindle is line bored carrying grease to in between the 2 bearings, right? Help the clueless), then how can one push out the grease seal on a hub with bearing buddy's.. The spindle is not line bored it is drilled. The EZ Lube system does not inject grease between the 2 bearings. It is injected between the back of the bearing and the lip seal. This seems to be what creates the issue with blowing the seal out. I hand pack because I do not want to take a chance of blowing out the seal and I do not want the entire cavity full of grease. Just my opinion. Op, any auto repair shop can repack your bearings. Call a couple for price. May be cheaper and quicker than a RV dealer.

RE: Health Care Costs

Wonder how the health program would work if it was restricted to those who are here legally and those who are born to legal parents? Two years on Medicaid will get you on to Medicare without ever having paid any money into it. My dentist accepts Medicaid patients who receive free 6 months check ups and care. He has an interpreter on staff because many don't speak English. Child care is subsidized. So many programs and it is no wonder there is so much waste because of the inability to properly track those who use them. When my son was in high school his principal once said "We are responsible for the education of children from age 4 through 21. One day we will be responsible from birth to the grave." Our government is already at that point. How much longer can we sustain this. Greece has gone past the point of no return and is about to collapse.

RE: Crusader?

2013 330MKS. Great camper and the love sofa/sleeper is a piece of junk. Seldom sit on it and the stuffing in the sofa has started to fail. Replaced the one piece love seat with Lazy Boy recliners. There is a known issue with the bottom of the slides that have the Darco wrap. It bunches and tears and Primetime has ignored the issue. The Darco will wick water at the edges and quickly rot. Some of us owners have added a metal edge to protect that area. Go to the Primetime forum for more info. Mine came with the EZ Flex but no wet bolts have some on order. About 10,000 miles and 2 years this month with no issues. Would buy again IF it did not have the Darco

RE: Advice on roof repair

With that size tear and all of the original roof intact and none missing I would lay a bead of Dicor sealant and keep an eye on it.. It would be an expensive patch if you had to buy a roll of Eternabond. Ideal solution would be for the RV dealer to give you a piece.

RE: Health Care Costs

I have a relative who is an emergency room doctor. He earns $400 per hour. No wonder is costs so much. I doubt that he makes that much. Working just 8 hour days and 2 week vacation would yield him $800,000/year. ER doctors usually have no office and staff, crippling malpractice insurance, few if any expenses.

RE: Bad Glow Plug?

Thanks for the update. We don"t get enough of them on this forum.

RE: Bad Glow Plug?

If the code doesn't clear do a Google search for glow plug location. Auto Zone told me that their reader said my bad one was at fire wall passenger side. A search revealed that ot was driver side fire wall. Possible they gave you wrong location. Could also have more than one bad one? Keep us posted. Little late but a never seize should be used on the threads to prevent seizing in the future.

RE: Bad Glow Plug?

Mine went out after a few starts. I was on the way to Auto Zone to get them to check the codes again when it went out. Thought I was going to have to buy a tester to reset it.
