RE: TC bends frame of Dually - pic

Looking at the tire sidewall, I'd say a 350. Mark

RE: Longbed tailgate will hit camper when hitching

There are a few models that don't have enough overhang for a longbed with the gate down. A recent issue of Trailer Life had one by Winnebego.

RE: Experienced RVing Dog Owner Question.. PLEASE

We have traveled 7yrs in a truck camper with our Mountain dog. We first try to park in the shade. If she's in the cab during a lunch stop and there's no shade, we try to park with the back to the sun. The overhead shades the cab. If she's in the camper we turn on the high speed vent fan with the lowest windows open. Block as much sun as you can. If they have water and the air is moving without direct sun, 85 inside won't hurt them. Just don't let it be that high to start. Mark

RE: Heading out for AK soon- weight

While you might not like it on paper, I don't think you have anything to worry about. My last truck that we took our 920 Lance to AK with, was a 2500 Chevy. This was 2000, B4 the official HDs. It scaled 9810# with a gvwr of 8600. 4100# on a 4400# frt axle and 5710# on the 6082# rear. 9 years and 84k miles, airbags and Rancho shocks were the only upgrade. Never had a flat or part failure. One more thing. you should rethink not filling your water tank to go there. You might need it. This was with the oem size 245x75 16e tires rated 3042# each. Mark

RE: How many pull a toad behind their fifth wheel

It seems there was a topic a while back, with pics, with what was left of a Jeep, I think. It was being flat towed behind a 5er, started to sway and flipped. Seems the long overhang on the trailer creates havoc with the towed steering. They work against each other. Mark

RE: Shower hygiene

I've used public/CG toilets for most of my 60yrs. We even had an outhouse for a while when young. Been useing the showers almost that long. Usually only showered in flip flops at the Nascar races to kick the beer cans out of the way. The people with shoes are the ones who track in the mud and sand for the rest of us. Spent 30 years in the construction trades. Had to use portables probably 40 or more percent of the time. The same goes for not having a place to wash up. Never been sick that came from any of this. Nor co-workers that I know of. Mark

RE: Height

I think it has to do somewhat with the target buyers, and what they use it for. The higher content trailers seem to be much lower in clearence. A lot of people are hunters that might go places most people don't. Trailers without heated or inclosed underbellies tend to be higher. Mark

RE: Ok, this is just getting stupid

I remember seeing a 30 something cab forward/cabover in a boneyard back in the eighties. They weren't marketed as Rams but the image was used. Mark

RE: Ok, this is just getting stupid

Another GM recall :S This one for 2007 - 2011 2500/3500s... LINK I was thinking this one was a little frivolous until I saw that there have been several fires reported because of it. I agree. With all the recalls, aren't you glad we are driving a Dodge? I know Dodges have had recalls, but nothing compared to this. Well I am glad I drive a "RAM" but they all have problems. It's how they deal with them that counts! I just received a recall for replacing the "left tie rod ball stud". If this were to break it could cause death. I am happy they are stepping up and taking care of the problem! Excuse me. It's just that I was driving trucks BEFORE "Ram" was even thought of. Even though there are no Dodge badges on my "Ram" it will always be a Dodge in my feeble mind. It is a Dodge product, sold by Dodge dealers, serviced by Dodge technicians, owned by Fiat. Call it whatever you want. I don't think so. Dodge has used the Ram image on trucks at least back to the 30s. Although not continuous. Mark

RE: Not enough truck and here is what happens

Deep thread tires on the RV. What is the point? They don't provide traction or steering. Durability and redundancy. I wouldn't be surprised if the bolt pattern was the same for truck and trailer and you could swap wheels and tires back and forth between rigs if needed. And dollars to donuts, Goodyear pays for the tires. Mark

RE: Engine temperature while towing

All the GM trucks have the clutch fan as standard. It can roar pretty good when it locks up. One thing about your truck, If your down to 2nd gear, the torque converter unlocks. This will build even more heat through the transmission and to the cooling system.

RE: Engine temperature while towing

The temperature controlled clutch fan will not lockup until 230-235 degrees. The temperature should then come back down. This is normal as long as you hear the fan come on. It can be rather loud. My GMC diesel is this way. Mark

RE: Changing air pressure

75# seems like more than you need on a dually. My door sticker shows 60# for the rear on my GMC. Thats for maximum load on the rear. Mark

RE: Jury duty summons while on a long trip

When I go out of town I go on-line to the Post Office (USPS) and put a hold on my mail delivery until I get home. If the summons is sitting in the Post Office then you obviously were never notified about jury duty. Maximum 30 days. OP is out for months. They held ours for 7 weeks a few years ago. Mark

RE: E-Z Lube Axles

My 2013 5er just had all bearings, brakes, drums everything replaced at about 5k miles. All from blown seals on Dexter EZ lube hubs. Everything was grease covered. I had yet to grease them myself. Mark

RE: techron

While Techron is an excellent fuel system cleaner, I don't think it's engineered to work as a stabilizer. Many 97-04 Corvette owners, including myself, us it to keep the fuel gauges reading correctly. Seafoam does nothing for our problem. Mark

RE: BEAUTIFUL Trailer on Ebay

too bad there weren't pictures of the inside, assuming it wasn't just the screen doors that were such finished wood. bumpy There are. You didn't scroll the pics. Mark
