RE: Onan install... 5.5 or 6.5

It would help if you post the exact models... According to my manual, the 5.5 and 6.5 have the same engine, but with different gearing. The generator runs at 3600, but the engine runs 2400 for the one and 2800 for the other IIRC. If I were shopping fuel injection would be a bigger differentiator than 1 kW.

RE: Electric brake effectiveness

All of mine would lock up. Including brand new parts I installed myself with zero miles. Check adjustment and for grease contamination. Good luck.

RE: Ford F-150 as a toad?

Anybody towing the new F-150 and have you had any problems with it? Yes, no. Mine is the crew.

RE: My insulation theory, take a look.

There are pourable expanding foams for marine flotation applications.

RE: After oil change tapping noise

I would pull a valve cover myself, to check for sludge. Could be the engine's nasty and the syn broke some loose. How's it typically been driven? Long drives or short hops? Sometimes you can tell just by looking in the oil filler cap or PCV valve.

RE: Any "Get Your Mail" Updates Anyone Knows About???

Think about domicile in a less expensive state if you haven't already considered that.

RE: Spare fuel tanks idea

I see no reason why not. If you really want to be creative, just put a gasoline filler cap onto the propane tanks and fill them. Pump in a little nitrogen and then you can easily dispense the fuel. ;)

RE: Change the oil in the differential?

I do in all my vehicles.

RE: Diesel engines.

Just stick with the manual. Put. Down. Google. Or you'll drive yourself nuts with bogus conflicting advice. Good luck and enjoy the truck. Most people I know get around 150k on injectors.

RE: Long Box vs Short Box and slip hitch for 5th wheel

My all time favorite fifth tow truck was a short bed quad cab with a Superglide. No worries and very maneuverable. Being able to make a u-turn on a city street or two lane country road was nice. And the short truck was great off road and easy to garage.

RE: Remorse?

If it keeps you awake wondering if it's the right decision, then don't do it.

RE: Would you drive in the snow?

I have and I'm sure I will again.

RE: Tyron Rings

Already getting the "upsell" :) Anybody have an opinion on Tyron Rings? Absolutely! For a reasonable price, I'll be more than glad to provide you my opinion. After all isn't your family's safety worth the investment in getting sound opinions? :B

RE: Tow Travel Trailer with Truck Gate Open? Anyone done this?

Usually the trailer jack will be a problem, on turns it will get closer, so check that... Can you just remove the tailgate and still get the bikes in? I have done that a few times where the tires were on the edge of the bed. Last thing to watch if they are heavy bikes I have seen tailgates damaged by the weight. IIRC the Dodges have a pretty solid tailgate, though.

RE: RV Fire Exit (aka exiting Dukes of Hazzard style)

Thanks for reminding us of this topic. In our case we have a small escape window on one side and a large picture window on the other side of the bedroom. I'm going to secure a hammer by the picture window.

RE: Which oil lab JG or Blackstone?

Should have taken some financial courses along with all that chemistry.

RE: Used but almost new price opinion

Family members bought a used Tiffin in that same price range; one year old and less than 1,500 miles. Paid around 80-90k as I recall.

RE: Tires (again)?

A sidewall cut is more a concern than traction. Firestone AT get great reviews and are priced right usually. I've used them and was satisfied. Made it to the top of Engineer pass with a set of those in 2wd.

RE: Oil Change interval based on time

NAPA is everywhere and sells sample kits.

RE: Trading In A Car On A New RV

Negotiation is an acquired skill, and it's possible to get good value from trades. IMO this is one of those situations where if you have to ask... If you proceed to trade, just decide first what you're willing to pay for the RV, no trade. Then deduct wholesale value for your car. Wholesale is fair, the dealer will just send your car to the auction in most cases. Some cases wholesale is preferable to dealing with private sales. In many tax situations you're also saving sales tax on the trade value. YMMV
