RE: In need for a new DD truck to tow small TT

The higher the Gross Vehicle Weight of the tow vehicle always makes for a safer towing experience . Any full size 1500 pickup will suffice without an equalizing hitch . I drive a duramax , with 9200# gvw . Obviously no issues towing any trailer up to the posted GCWR gross COMBINED weight rating. For a smooth ride ( coil springs ) good power 5.7 HEMI . and cheapest price you could consider a RAM pickup . Rams are cheaper than GM and Ford and offer the softer coil springs . If you upgrade to a bigger trailer then you can add the equalizing hitch . Born in 1946 I have been towing trailers since 1972 . Equalizing hitches take extra time to hook up , are heavy , and limit how tight I can turn my rig . Equalizing hitches are a crutch for those folks who choose to tow a larger , longer trailer than their lighter VW vehicle is comfortable with . Simple physics . A heavier vehicle tows a lighter trailer better than a lighter vehicle tows a heavier trailer . Auxiliary Transmission Coolers are a good investment on any tow vehicle that is not a 2500 or higher .

RE: Factory Decal Removal

I was able to remove mine without chemicals . I went slowly so as not to leave glue . I worked on them over several different times when it was warm out . The hair drier method worked the best . I did use a razor knife to get to the edge of each decal . I just pulled each off slowly . I then used a cleaner / polish / wax on the affected area . Patience was my friend .

RE: Leaking Batteries

beemerphile 1 is correct. AGM = Absorbed Glass Mat They are not gel It has been a while since I made the switch to the Exide Edge AGM batteries . When I was making the switch out of the conventional lead acid batteries I was a student of the different battery choices . Low Suv regrets the error . The AGM batteries solved my leakage problem . No more conventional batteries for me in the cars, boat , or trailer.

RE: Leaking Batteries

My Remedy : AGM Batteries These are the kind that you can mount sideways because they are gel . AGM construction batteries on my trailer and my truck . I paid $ 140 each for exide edge AGM batteries at bimart / Oregon . Do a google " AGM " for the reasons to do AGM . AGM are maintenance free , do not leak , do not off gas , have faster recharge , will take more abusive deep discharging than conventional battery construction . My main reason for switching was the acid leakage from my conventional lead acid batteries . EXIDE EDGE AGM batteries are made in the Carolinas USA as I recall .

RE: I know, I know...Tires again

if you actually want to get the highest load rated tire the answer is clear : Goodyear Cargo G26 size : 225/70 R 15 Rated at 2470 # load on the LT rating scale Not the 15 % wimpier ST rating scale . Speed rating is 106 mph . This tire weighs 33 # . Load range D means you only inflate to 65 psi to get your max weight rating . It fits on most 15 inch rv steel wheels without issues . The typical Maxxis (and other ) ST 225/75R15 weighs about 29 # . The Cargo G26 is made for European passenger vans such as the Mercedes Sprinter Vans . readily available on tire rack and every goodyear dealer . go here for complete specs : http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Goodyear&tireModel=Cargo+G26&sidewall=Blackwall&partnum=27R5G26&tab=Sizes

Campgrounds Ellensburg WA to Kamloops BC

We are starting in Bend , OR and our destination is Kamloops , BC . Are there open campgrounds along this route . I would prefer state , county, or federal campgrounds if possible . I just need a place to rest , maybe get a shower , for the enroute trip . I think I will go via hwy 97 rather than do the I-5 from Portland to Vancouver , BC . Unless there are more open campsites using the Portland Seattle corridor . Possibly the stretch between Ellensburg WA to Princeton BC is of the most interest . Can anybody help ?
