RE: Exhaust wrapping, DP owners, take a look.

Cuts radiant heat in that area. That is likely the reason in this application. Mark

RE: Should I make extra trip to winterize p-traps?

I can't see many p-traps breaking because they weren't treated. Too much room to expand. I understand about normally treating them, but I wouldn't loose sleep over it. But then I only blew out the lines in my TC last winter with out an issue. Twice more the 10 below zero. Mark

RE: Towing a car behind your camper

We sometimes tow our Jeep behind our 920 Lance. It's much easier driving than a CC dually. I bought new brackets and moved the step just enough to clear the hookup. Still easy to get in and out of the camper. Mark

RE: A NEW SRW vs DRW pulling a short heavy FW

You can possibly do it without being over your rear tire weight. That being said, that is a lot of weight pushing around a srw truck. I was hoping when we bought our trailer, to find something I thought I could go back to a srw truck. Didn't happen. Even though the loaded pin weight is 3300# verses 3500# of my TC, which was carried on a srw 3/4 ton I dout that I would go back. It's that other 12,200# behind the pin weight that stops me. Mark

RE: Four Oil Changes (diesel) for $220 Worked Out Fine

I would not use the oil used by my GM dealer. If you got Valvoline Premium Blue motor oil then you did get a good deal. What oil does your dealer use? Mark

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.
