RE: Dolly towind with steer tires on the ground

Canadian MH came into the park where we winter. They were towing an 84 or 85 Corvette backwards on a dolly. This was in Florida. Mark

RE: Air bags needed for GMC 3500?

It might not need them but will probably ride better with 25-30#s. I run 30-35# with 3300# of pin on my 08 3500. The newer models after 2010, I think, Have an extra overload leaf. So might be a bit different. Mark

RE: Rear tire pressure dually

I ran 65 in my rear tires with my pin weight at 3400 pounds and they rubbed together. The result after 600 miles was a big bulge in the sidewall of the tire. They weren't touching in a static setting, but while flexing going down the road, they were touching. Cost me four new tires. The inflation charts and the scientific approach don't mention the tires touching. That would be hard to believe with OEM size tires. My 3500# TC doesn't do that at 60#. Mark

RE: Rear tire pressure dually

2008 GMC CC dually and 15,500# 5er with 3300# on the pin. The door sticker says 65# frt and 60# rear. That's what I've always run. No tire problems and no bad wear. 77.000 miles, 40k on oem Generals the rest and still going on Firestone TransForce HTs. I expect another 10k +. Mark

RE: TST 507 REPEATER REGUIREMENT

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
