I have the TST 507 with flow thru monitors. My receiver is mounted top center of the dash. The truck is a long bed CC, the trailer a 36' 5er. I don't have a repeater and have never noticed a dropped reading. The pressures and temps seem to always be changing, up or down as we drive or make stops. I have noticed that the reading are still there when we leave the trailer. The reading however never changes before it's gone. Mark

RE: Factory installed wrong size full tank

If it's a GM it's normal. I think my 08 GMC is supposed to be 34 gal. I've never gotten more than a bit over 27gal in it. That was long after the gauge read empty and the puter screaming EMPTY. Normally at empty it's 24-25 gal. An I have no reason to think it doesn't hold what they claim. Mark

RE: ATF Fluid which one

The problem with GMs spec is if you have the G80 locking differential. It doesn't get the older limited slip additive. It's very hard to find the 75w90 that doesn't include it. Mark

RE: ATF Fluid which one

I don't think any aftermarket gear lube meets GM specs for late model trucks. Mark

RE: Palo Duro canyon area campground

The first time we were there, it was already dark. We didn't know anything about the place. When we got up in the morning, the view was spectacular. Mark

RE: Tire Pressure Monitor System: repeater & inline switch

Receiver is on the windshield. I noticed that it had 1 tire already programmed in it when I started working on it. Maybe it was a return and the batteries are not good? I was told by them that they program one tire to check function. Then don't do a delete. Mark

RE: Tire Pressure Monitor System: repeater & inline switch

I'm surprised your having that problem. I have the TST 507 with a 36' 5er and a CC long bed. I've had no problems at all without a repeater. Mark X2, I've got the same system as the OP and a 35 ft trailer, moving from a 25 footer. I had the same problem as the OP when I went to the longer trailer but moved my TST receiver up on the dash by the clock and the problem disappeared. Where is your receiver mounted? Mine is usually on the dash top during travel. Mark

RE: Vintage camper

I once say a rampside that had been turned into an amphicar. It was a 62 or 63. Built as a demonstrater by a company around Detroit. I saw it in a collection in Ohio about 2004. It only had about 300 miles on it. In the bed was a stack of wooden folding chairs for people to sit on while in the water. Needless to say it never made it into production. Mark

RE: New 5er with painted front and rear cap

Not that important to wax it as it most likely has a base coat/clear coat paint job. Most of them don't fade. Mine was painted 3 years ago and still looks new with only occasional washings. Now the colored Gel coat caps..that's another story. B.O.true, Clearcoats do not need wax. Don't need it, but sure helps the bugs come off. I too use Insulator Wax. I goes on easy with a sponge, just don't let it dry too much before removal. Mark

RE: air bags on truck

If you need airbags, your overloaded! My truck is within all limits with my 15.5k loaded 5er. It both rides level, and handles bridge approaches and things like that much better with airbags. Mark

RE: 5th wheel Truck combo = terrible ride

Adjustable airbags instead of stable loads. And I agree, Your front tires are overinflated. The rears somewhat less. Mark

RE: Torq Lift tie downs and aftermarket fuel tank

I know Titan is what I want. My Torq Lift tie downs, the one by the tank was a very tight fit. I was hoping someone here might have had this setup and been able to give first hand information. Mark

Torq Lift tie downs and aftermarket fuel tank

I have an 08 GMC CC dually. I have TL tie downs and would like to install a larger Titan fuel tank. I remember the one at the tank being a tight fit. Has anyone here done this and shed any light as weather there is any interference? Thanks, Mark

RE: After market exhaust brakes

I have the what is called the Banks Brake on my 08 GMC. The settings are controlled with a knob. The Speed Brake has a dash top monitor like a gps. It gives a lot of info and allows you to do other things at a much bigger cost. You don't want or need anything that goes in the exhaust. Mark

RE: Bryce/Zion with dogs...

National Parks do not allow dogs on trails or anywhere other than paved areas & campgrounds. National Forests aren't as strict and state parks have the most lenient rules. We do leave our dogs occasionally but not for long. At Zion, you have to take shuttles to see the park and of course, dogs can't go. We camped in the park at Watchman and fortunately had good shade & comfortable weather so left the furry ones for a couple of hours while we took the shuttles around. We made a trip back to check on them then caught the shuttle again. I've not had any luck finding kennels that I would leave ours in. This isn't completely true but not far off. We live close too, and I volunteer at, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio. I don't know of anywhere except buildings, that you can't take dogs there. Mark

RE: Lift process for removing all 4 tires

If you have the Lippert levelup system, you should be able to raise the four rear jacks then the fronts. You might have to block up the jacks to get off the ground though.These jacks are rated to lift way more than the trailer weighs. To be safe though you should put stands or blocks under if you remove all at once. Mark
