RE: Yay! No more commercial registration fees!

Dak, did DMV inspect the truck or just paper work?

RE: Not a good start to Summer

Please post the source of the oil leak when you know it. I don't know about automatic transmissions since I have manuals but does not a torque converter contain a lot of oil and could have leaked. A loss of a lot of motor oil seems more likely, Could you smell tranny fluid? Our summer has not started well either. Within 6 hours of closing on a new house someone broke in and took the fridge, microwave, and shower head. Had we gotten there that night instead of the next Am we would have walked in on them. Mostly glad that didn't t happen because I would have had to deal with the police over a gun issue. My dogs would have gotten involved also.

RE: Lolo Motorway and the Selway wild and crazy river

The Selway can be pure terror.

RE: Low fuel pressure Duramax

Could be bad fuel, has the truck not been used much. I am currently fighting algae in my tank because I did not add biocide over the winter.

Trailer Mover

So I have a small problem. Moving to a new place and while there is a good amount of RV space it is not a straight shot for easy parking. I either need ATV or walk behind powered mover. ATV would be nice but I would not use it much so any personal reviews on movers? I would prefer battery powered over gas or corded.

RE: Hitch mount generator setup.

Very nice work but scary. Some of my friends carry gen sets that way but extend the mounting so the load is higher. Bit of peace of mind in a rear end collision.but not much if full of fuel.

RE: Diesel Fuel Quality and MPG

Since biocides was mentioned, if your truck sits a lot and if you use a biodiesel blend, put some biocide in there. It might just save you a problem with filter clog.

RE: Parking regs in California

California is way over regulated. They just lost the North American Toyota headquarters to Texas. Coleman you are wrong about Toyota moving to TX. You and others might think that but Toyota says it has nothing to do with CA regulations. The are moving to consolidate closer to their manufacturing plants which are mainly in the South.

RE: installing 12v outlets

I find the 12v femail and male plugs on the market are junk with the exception of marine units. What has worked well for me is Anderson power plugs with a adapter to a marine femail. Cheaper if adding a few outlets.

RE: Will we need a bigger truck jack?

I have changed a tire twice using the supplied simple screw jack. 7800 pound truck with a 5000 pound TC in the bed. A bottle jack might be a bit better but then I don't need the extra weight. The hard part is getting the spare down on my truck wit the TC on board. I made a tool.

Add some biodiesel.

RE: Cargo Rack as step?

I use a dog ramp like the play slide pictured. It telescopes to half it's extended size and both dogs like it.

RE: not just for camping - a blog trip report

Good on you folks, looks nice at the end of the day. Humans are such slobs sometimes.

RE: Spare tire fitment Dodge Ram

I don't think you will have a cooling issue but don't know where and when you travel.

RE: COG - I broke a cardinal rule...go easy on me

You are fine. For your peace of mind try to load heavy stuff forward, and keep your waste tanks light when you can. A floaty and porpoising feeling with TC's is just a fact of life. You are pushing a barn door down the road and the faster you go the more you feel it.

RE: BATTERY UPGRADE

I retired my Trojan Group 31 at eight years of age. I moved it to my fishing boat and still going strong.

RE: carpet bombing

I did my template a bit different. I got some stiff cardboard that Costco uses to protect layers of paper towels and laid them out on the floor against the edges the carpet would butt up to. Hot glued all the pieces into one pattern and traced around it on to back of carpet (be careful of a reverse image when you do it). Cut it out and bobs your uncle it fits.

RE: I built a clear black tank and tested the Sewer Solution

I have had to leave a black tank full for as long as three months. Haven't had a problem with flow or smell. I live in a dry not too hot area so that might have something to do with it. I also add a liquid bacteria soup and that also might help, at least I think so.

RE: Removing 6 almost-new Golf Cart batts to go bigger

Good grief Boaty, what do you do with all that power? Have you not read ANY of my previous posts?? My icemaker runs 24x7 to keep up with the 1,200lbs of bottled whiskey I keep with me. That's why my Eagle Cap weighs 7,250lbs. Ah so, how did I miss that. I thought you were serving as a power source for a small town, turns out you are bootlegging shine.
