RE: The 1969 Draft Lottery, where were you & number?

Republic of Vietnam 1969. A Shau Valley, DMZ, Quang Tri and Hue. Left March 1970 and my company was overrun by NVA regulars 5 days after I left. 3 KIA and numerous wounded. We lost 7 men the year I was there. I still see the faces.

RE: experience with unlocked Verizon phones

Go to the Amazon site and look around. Hundreds of phones. We bought an LG phone from Amazon and use Tracfone. Check comments and questions carefully. Ours is on the Verizon network and works great.

Blackstone Results

http://i.imgur.com/Gs66gkBl.png I have been taking samples of oil for Blackstone for a number of years. This is the last sample and I am asking for opinions. Almost 3800+ miles towing on this change. Using Shell Rotella T 15W40. My concern is the copper and iron vs. universal averages. I am aware that coolers are copper and can leach copper out. If it is the cooler my question is why has it not shown a downward trend? Still have the old oil from last change and have ordered a test kit from Amzoil to compare. I subscribe that "oil is oil" when using major brands but hinking of using another brand at next oil change. I am also going to post at Diesel Place.

RE: Bilstein Suggestions Please

Thinking about upgrading my original stock shocks to Bilstein shocks. 2005 Silverado 2500HD with the tow package and 6.0 gas engine Any suggestions? And where to order online for the best price, Thanks I think if you got that many years from the OEM shocks I would consider buying another set. Problem with that thought is that the shocks probably wore out long before. Original OEM on my 2016 where gone with less that 40,000 miles. Changed the shocks on my 2013 at around 30,000. One rear shock had no function left. When removed it stayed in the middle of travel. Did not rebound when pushed or pulled. Stayed wherever I left it. Remaining shocks had little rebound.

RE: Atwood Furnace Doesn't Stay On

Symptoms are: Blower comes on and it seem to ignite immediately. It seems to burn poorly (smells like half burned outside and the normal 'roar' sound is more like a cough mixed with a roar. It turns off quickly and consistently after about 3-4 seconds. It tries this 3 times, then gives up and turns itself off. There is a maintenance LED flash code, "Ignition Lockout Fault - 3 flashes with 3-second pause" Exact same issue I had on my furnace 3 months ago. Checked and cleaned everything but no go. Stove worked fine. Finally removed the burner and found a dirt dauber nest on the end. We are now traveling and have used the heater for 10 days with no issue.

RE: TPMS - I know, again!! Need some buying advice!

Would a pair of cameras looking at the tires be less fuss than a TPMS? If you are being facetious I think the other posters missed your intent.;)

RE: TPMS - I know, again!! Need some buying advice!

I have found that all the monitors I have looked at look the same. Checking programming and I have found them to be the same. Looking at the size and picture of the sensors, they look the same. Is it possible that they are all the same but packaged and labeled the same? Don't need the "disconnect" capability because I turn mine off and place in its box when not being used. Good luck

RE: Water Heater Vinegar Soak

Not a fan of vinegar and you might try citric acid. Saw a commercial on TV about Hurriclean. Designed to clean the rust in a toilet tank. Tried it and also used a homemade brew. Both worked well. I bought powered Citric acid from Amazon and mixed it with baking soda. Creates a lot of foam to clean the toilet tank and where deposits form around the water inlet to a toilet. Citric acid is what Keurig sells to clean their coffee pot. Also used it to clean the stainless on our dishwasher.

RE: Used Dmax or New Cummins

They mean diddly squat but at least it is a complete sample. Another way to view it is to look at the number of engines Cummins manufactured for Ram vs how many Isuzu built for GM. After 24 years of manufacturing Cummins built their 2,000,000 engine for Ram. Isuzu started manufacturing the Duramax in 2000 and by May of 2007 they had hit the 1 millionth milestone. Based on the way I bought my Ford, I think if I wanted a Chevy I would probably buy a Chevy without looking at the Ram and if I wanted a Ram I would probably buy the Ram without looking at Chevy. Edit: it's interesting that Duramax sales appear to be slipping. In March of this year the 2,000,000th Duramax rolled off the line. I am confused. You said 24 years with Cummins and 2,000,000' Isuzu delivered 2000-2007 1,000,000 Duramax and on edit: this year 2,000,000 Duramax. If correct Duramax in 17 years outsold Cummins 24 years? That's right Isuzu built in 17 years what Cummins has done in 24. The 500,000th 6.7 Powerstroke was installed in a f350, I think, in May of 2014. They should hit 1,000,000 fairly soon. Edit: the 500,0000 6.7 Powerstroke was installed in a Super Duty chassis September of 2013. I'm surprised they haven't already hit the 1,000,000 milestone. Silly me. I thought we were talking about truck engines. Who was that poster that suggested this topic was derailed?

RE: GM Tow haul use - opinions

Use tow/haul anytime you want to. I would recommend it when towing over about half max load. My DMax/Allison gives the most responsive grade braking when using tow/haul and the cruise control. Don't you also love that EB? Almost stops itself.

RE: 3 inch grey water drain?

A 3" drain line would not be an improvement UNLESS you have a full flow the entire 35 minutes which is not possible with a 40 gallon tank. Do you have a clear adapter at the end of the drain pipe to see what and how much is coming out.

RE: Curt hitches

Have the Q16. Like it and an improvement over the Reese slide bar. No issues with latching or unlatching. Reused the existing base plates from the Reese. Not as fancy as other more expensive oes but gets the job done. Two pieces so not as heavy when removing. Best price I found was Amazon.

RE: March Sales Numbers

I feel so alone!! I think I am the only one here you doesn't give a rats butt about sales numbers!!:R Neither do I and I am not going to pay for a truck with all the trim levels some on this post are discussing (arguing?). Insane, IMO, to pay that kind of money when something with a lower trim level will do me just fine. Of course, It's their money.

RE: Are there any hitches to avoid, looking to buy ?

i here B&W are good, specially the reversible goose (for hot shot as part time gig). maybe air ride, reese etc.we'll be towing 40 foot or there abouts so upper end weight. currently have tow vehicle. 2010 F350 DRW 6.4 powerstroke (stock, not deleted).thanks. Don't know what you are referring to when you speak of "goose" but be careful. Sons neighbor came in with a new 5th wheel and a goose neck attached to the pin box. He asked for it and dealer happily installed it in his new Ram. I suggested that he call the manufacturer of his new 5er and ask about a using a goose neck. Two weeks later he had it removed and is now using a conventional hitch,

RE: 2011 Duramax vs 2016 Cummins

Why not consider another Chevy? Buy what you want but IMO, and many on this forum, none are better than others.

RE: RV Battery

?? A Marine/RV battery are starting batteries, not deep cycle batteries! They are designed for boats, and class C RV's which require starting batteries. If the battery your buying has a CCA, Cold Crank Amperage, rating it is not for you! I don't believe that is true. I have looked at a lot of batteries the last few days. ALL have CCA and reserve capacity. Also true with AGM batteries. I have found that most batteries fall into 3 groups. Automotive that are used for starting Marine/dual purpose-Used for starting,trolling motors, RV and occasional discharge Marine/RV Deep cycle. Used for starting and deep discharges without damage An AGM battery is not needed in for my use and an unnecessary cost.
