RE: look at this mess

It looks to me like the awning was taken off in the tunnel. The front AC is also damadged. If he had used both lanes on the curve, he would have been ok. Mark

RE: Tips when Fueling at truck stops

The couple of times I've swiped my card at the truck pumps, it would ask me tractor or reefer. I've never tried going further. When I've then gone inside, I've been told only commercial cards at the truck pumps. Mark Mark! Never, ever put reefer fuel in your tank....if you're dipped, your fine will be astronomical....:E. We fuel up at the truck pumps all the time. Swipe RV Rewards/Loyalty card for "pump start", fill up, then go inside and pay with PenFed Card. Get the "CASH" price less 3 cents, plus rewards from PenFed...Dennis Let me say first, I KNOW what reefer fuel is, didn't say I filled up. Now not sure how to say it any clearer. On two occasions at Pilot truck fuel stations, I've swiped my Pilot/FJ RV card. On the readout it asks me Tractor or Reefer. I think on the second time I pushed Tractor. It asked me for info unrelated to me purchasing fuel for my private truck. When I went inside I was told I couldn't use the card at the pump. Only truck company issued cards. I could use it inside but they aren't set up there to apply discounts. I've been ok usuing the card on the front side, but some of the Pilots can be pretty tite. I have no idea what a PenFed card is.

RE: My truck is broken....

I had new tires installed yesterday on my 08 GMC CC,drw. 46k on it. I asked them to be sure to check the frt end for wear. The old oem Generals showed no unusual wear. Everything was good. I do my own basic service so I know it gets greased. I will admit to service by the OLM which is usually 8500 to 9500 miles. Also I never changed a front end part on my 2000, 2500 Chevy. It was greased closer to 5k intervals. It was also over gvwr by 1200# with the camper on. It was under axle though. Mark

RE: Tips when Fueling at truck stops

The Pilot/FJs I've been to, will only accept comercial cards at the truck pumps. You have to use the RV/auto islands to pay at the pump. It's all about the fuel tax and maybe rebates for trucks. Mark Nope, I have been using the PFJ RV card at the truck pumps for many, many years. No worries, no issues. I never use an RV pump but then I use diesel. If you have a gas RV you will need to use the regular or RV pumps but you will still want to use the PFJ card for the savings. Are there places you can fuel for less? Absolutely! Are you assured to be able to easily get in and out of those facilities? I'll leave that up to you. I frequently fuel elsewhere but not if I am traveling from point A to point B and need fuel. I don't want any surprises and I know what I am getting, I know I will be able to eat and park should either of those be necessary as well. Flying J was a much better business before they went broke and got purchased by the morons at Pilot but when it makes sense, it just makes sense. The couple of times I've swiped my card at the truck pumps, it would ask me tractor or reefer. I've never tried going further. When I've then gone inside, I've been told only commercial cards at the truck pumps. Mark

RE: Wheel/Brake/Bearing Question

The bearings might now be worn but were likely loose from the beginning. Mark

RE: New 3/4 CC Dmax payload cap terrible!

Why do people complain about a truck they haven't bought? If you have to have a 3/4, put airbags on and buy a trailer that won't exceed your tire or axle ratings. Trucks are so much better today than even 10 years ago, let alone 20 or more. There were some big 5ers in the early 80s pulled by trucks noone today whould want. In nearly 14yrs here, I've never seen a first hand or maybe even second that someone was sued or fined after an accident. This for being overweight on a private vehical. Mark

RE: 17 Days broken down with our new Rushmore fifth wheel

Just because the 14s are coming out of the Redwood factory, doesn't mean they will be better. I have a 13 Redwood 36re. Customer service? NOT!!! If I have no more problems, I'm still one and done with Crossroads. Mark

RE: Best way to clean up ATF/Hydraulic fluid?

Use brake cleaner and a rag. Be sure to get the nonflammable stuff. There is clorinated and nonclorinated. One is flammable one isn't. Mark

Everything else being equal, 215s will be shorter and narrower. What size came on the trailer? Mark

RE: Switched LED's for Halogen on Scare Lights

Halogen.. Good, now when you accidently leave 'em on all night disturbing the blazes out of your neighbor you can go out in the morning and see how they melted. A little confuseing, I think he went from halogens to leds. Mark

RE: Silverado dissolves itself

Here is a posting on GM-Trucks forum back in 2010......melted truck mirrors.......LINK Seems you are not the only one experiencing a strange phenomenon...:H Reading this,I would go with the window reflection, untill it can be proven wrong. It is not coming from anything under the hood. If it was from hot wiring, something on the truck would have stopped functioning by now. From either a blown fuse or burned wires. Mark

RE: Wind damage

If the tree is healthy, it's likely his neighbor isn't liable for the damadge. I have State Farm for house and cars. Off the truck the house pays, on the truck it's that policy. My house policy covered the hail damadge on the camper that was off the truck. Mark

RE: Furnace and single battery

I have a single group 31 Sears Platinum AGM in my TC. Can't remember exactly but 205-220AH. Not cheap but should do the job. Mark

RE: Nitto Blowout

To look at the pics it could have been a tire failure, or a slowly deflating tire that overheated then went boom. Mark

RE: Should I worry about freezing?

I thought you said it was winterized. Why not leave it winterized until you get to it in January? It is. However we would like some limited use for two nights on the road and a night there. I will drain everything but not blow the lines when we leave. Mark

RE: Should I worry about freezing?

Thanks everyone, I didn't really think it would be a problem but thought I better ask. Mark

RE: Should I worry about freezing?

If it was mine, I would at least drain the water heater. If it sits full for any length of time it gets all funky anyway.. B.O. Thanks, I might not even fill the water heater. Mark
