RE: 2006 Dodge 3500 4X4 Steering Wander

I have the steering box brace on mine too. Money well spent!

RE: Month to month RV parks, Salt Lake City, UT

I've driven through the Mountain Shadows park in Draper. It looks decent, and there are plenty of full-time residents by the looks of it. Dont know what the 'night life' is like though. It is right next to Camping World. I live near the Pony Express. Very nice place; all pads are pull through and concrete. Gated entry. The downside is the price. Is walking distance to RV store if you need to fix anything. My parents have spent a few weekends here without complaints. Those are the only two I'm familiar with.

RE: Need 48re valve body recommendation

I have the TransGo kit in mine. Been in the truck for 2yrs now. I got it to remedy my 2-3-2-3 shift flutter under light throttle that is partially caused by the addition of my Edge chip. It did resolve the issue. I didn't drill the extra holes for the fast converter lockup. The valve body is easy to remove. If I were to do it again, I might go with the Revmax or other, but I wasn't willing to spend that amount at the time.

RE: Winterized Camping

All of my tanks, and some plumbing is exposed (not covered belly). I used UltraHeat stick on tank heaters on my gray and black. They have a chart for what size heater depending on the tank capacity. For the exposed plumbing I used Easy Heat heat tape premade from Home Depot, and then covered it with foam insulation. I didn't use my fresh water tank. Another Easy Heat on my fresh hose. I bought this one longer than my hose and wrapped it around the spigot, then covered the spigot with fiberglass insulation then a heavy trash bag. With my trailer skirted with thin chipboard with 1" Styrofoam, I was good to -22*F. Without anything (insulation, skirting), the fresh water hose shushed in the mid 20's.

RE: How long do you plan to keep your TV

I plan to have my truck for many years to come (123k is all). My dodge replaced a '97 K1500 that was sold with 244k and not a thing wrong with it, only because my TH (sig) we just bought brand new was a little too much for the truck. Still brought it home with the dependable half ton. I've got a Ford Escape with 267k on it. I'll do a good job maintaining vehicles and run them till they can no longer be dependable or not get the job done.

RE: Pony Express RV Resort in Salt Lake City??

We stayed there one night & would again. Pull throughs so we didn't need to unhook. No food close, so bring some with you or maybe pizza delivery? That reminds me... While there is no food within a reasonable walking distance, there is a grocery store, BK, 2 pizza places, 2 Mexican food restaurants, subway and quiznos, and a Maverik fuel (cheaper than the Flying J and trailer friendly) all approx 1mi north of the CG.

RE: Pony Express RV Resort in Salt Lake City??

It is a couple minutes south of my house. My parents have stayed there a few weekends and enjoy it. Clean place. Gated entry. Kind of pricey. Looks like all spaces are pull though, and are concrete pads. Playground for kids, and dog areas as well.

RE: Tow vehicle question - Chevy 6.0L questions

The Denali trim gets you the 6.2L, not the 6.0L.

RE: New high (or low?) in overloading

Some Taco owners are nuts. I saw one earlier in the year towing a trailer identical to mine. Trailer is nearly 8k GVWR and has 900lb tongue.

RE: Zion to I-40 east eventually

I second exactly what BB_TX said. That is what I was going to recommend. I did a similar route a few years ago on the bike, but turned south at Pagosa Springs and went through Santa Fe. What a scenic ride (till Santa Fe). Page to Cortez is easy. West side of Durango is done climbing. Wolf Creek Pass east of Pagosa is steep but worth it.

RE: Question of weight distribution

Having access to the same truck as you are asking about ('01 HO 6spd dually, along with 4wd). I scaled that truck at 14,500lbs with 2 people, ~85gal of diesel, and a heaping bed of road base. Had 6000lbs worth of material said the quarry scale. The rear was squatting. There was some lean in the turns (truck has factory rear sway bar), and the rear was spongy/springy. To pack a 5k TC, something should be done to the rear suspension, airbags, overload spacers, timbrens, ect.

RE: Ford E-450 6.0 Turbo Diesel Overheating

Is the fan clutch engaging? When running hot, the cooling fan will make a ton of noise (unmistakable amount of noise) as it is fully engaged to draw air over the radiator. Had a 6.0L at about 23k gross, never an issue with 'hot' coolant temperatures.

RE: Water Heater....leave on or as needed?

I turn on as needed, usually just in the evening to wash the day's dishes and to shower. Then it will remain off until the next evening. There is the lengthy on/off debate... I lived in my trailer during weekdays for 26mo. My water heater is located under the master bed, so I didn't want it to wake me. I noticed it would cycle much more frequently during the colder months of left on, so it was more cost effective to turn on before use.

RE: Toys, RZR vs Golf Cart????

Plate it in your state. Done. Doesn't allow off-road vehicles but yours will be street legal, which will skirt the 'no off-road vehicles allowed'. My last 3 dirt bikes have been converted to street legal, and all my friends have plated dirt bikes (even an early 90's 2 stroke). We ride them all over the place that require street legal vehicles on the trails, and gets us around off-road registration as well.

RE: Steamboat Spgs, CO to Park City, UT via Rt 40...?

I used to frequent that route from Salt Lake (heading to Leadville), and turned south just east of Hayden. There isn't much out there between Craig and Vernal; lonely stretch of highway with mostly rolling hills. The road can get terribly busy between Vernal and Duchesne from all the oil/gas rigs and wells in the area. Watch for crazies, left turners, speeders and excessively slow drivers. Be aware of your fuel range. Easy to make it between towns but may put you in a bind if you skip too many. Craig to Roosevelt is approx 150mi, then Roosevelt to SLC is another 150.

RE: let's talk front mount hitches.

While a front hitch increases the maneuverability, as already mentioned it reduces your ability to see what you are doing. With a front hitch you are 'blind' to what you could see in the truck's mirrors. Having a front hitch does allow for you to maneuver a trailer much more quickly.

RE: Hauling water

I never travel without fresh water in the tank.

RE: Big Water to Escalante, UT

There are multiple routes to take with the most direct being Smokey Mtn Rd. I grew up in Page and did a lot of exploring around there in everything from a dirt bike to a 1 ton truck (and forgotten some of it). If there hasn't been a recent rain you shouldn't have any issue. Expect some rough spots and washboards. I have gone out there in the spring after heavy rain and flooding before the roads were repaired and 4wd was a must. Normally you could get around in a 2wd and many places a typical sedan. Smokey Mtn is a steep climb at the switchbacks but I don't remember it being bad after that. Be sure to go farther east to Alstrom Point at the beginning of your trip for some good 1000ft cliff lake overlooks. Verify your spare tire. Take plenty of water. Bring a good tow rope/strap just in case. Might be worth your while to stop in at the station on the west side of the road at Big Water for current road conditions. Have fun!

RE: turbo diesel

Once a week? Mine might sit longer than 2mo during the winter. I plug it in to a battery tender when it sits for any length of time, along with a full tank of diesel. Once a week drives won't bother it either. Just be sure to get it up to temperature, 15+ miles to get the transmission to a half decent temp as well. Staring and idling will hurt them, get a load on it.
