RE: 42 Foot Toy Hauler with 2063 Pound Dry Pin Weight?

Real world you will be closer to 25% pinweight - of an empty toyhauler. All the heavy stuff occurs on top and behind the axles, which while raising the gross weight, it lowers the pinweight. If it has an onboard genset, it is likely in the 4k+ range empty. The 2k pinweight on the brochure is salesmans speak. TESLA Brochure doesn't list it, but the two listed are 2700 and 3300 lbs.

RE: How to reduce generator noise?

I was thinking sound canceling headphones, but the whole watch tv thing kinda makes that not work so well.

RE: one year with a 40' fifth wheel and dually

I can get 10-12 running 55 on I5 over several hundred miles. A headwind runs around 8, no wind 10.x tail wind can approach 12. I am running a tune, and that is hand calculated odometer VS diesel pump. I loose ~.2 mpg per mph over 55.

RE: 3Tb Hard Drive limit to 2.19Tb on Dell 690 Workstation

Use an aftermarket SATA controller. The onboard one caps at 2 tb. Most any one should work.

RE: Trail Air Pinbox

If you have access to an engine hoist, it makes changing the lower jaw far easier. I pulled the shock and attached the hoist to the lower jaw (which supported it until done). Remove the airbag fill valve on top, and the mounting bolt on the bottom. Once the jaw can swing freely, remove the pins out back. Reinstall is reverse. Before putting the new jaw on, check the location of all the zerk fittings, here are several inside.

RE: Filling Propane Tanks

The proper way is to fill by weight. Tare weight of the cylinder (stamped on the collar) plus weight of the gas. As stated above "filling till it stops" and filling by bleeder (tubes can fall off) are the lazy mans way and can result in an overfill. Can you document ANY tube that fell off while in service?

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

These things are held on with tiny screws. If the rig was on fire, once the door was open a crack, a motivated shoulder will open it one way or another.

RE: Filling Propane Tanks

Every time I fill portable tanks, it is as jus2shy says..

RE: Entry Level Fivers With Man Beds Dont Exist

The electric beds in my toy hauler are queen wide, and almost 8' long.

RE: Chains?

I have them for the truck and trailer. Used them once when towing, it's an experience you likely won't want to repeat. Except for the one time, if we hit snow/ice and "chains required" sign, I just stop at the chain up area, make some coffee and entertain ourselves watching folks chain up. Then proceed when the road is cleared and chains required signs are down. In California on 80 they will ticket you for that. There is a limited amount of area for chaining up, and you are going to burn 50-60 feet of it road is cleared??

RE: Wind deflectors

For a SUV or pickup with a shell, putting the deflector all the way back can net decent mpgs, 5ers are so far from the cab wall (VS height above cab roof) it is near impossible to gain beyond a few tenths of a mpg. Most people can save that much by slowing down 2-3 mph.

RE: Storage - Slides out?

Only reasons I can see is to make it easier to pull the trailer out by having an extra 2-3 feet on each side after pulling the slides in, or because they have to load / unload in the storage yard, and again leave them open to reserve space for later.

RE: AT&T's Double the Data Promotion ends Oct. 31

I went into an att store to change my data plan fron 10 gigs to 15 - the minimum to be doubled. Then ended up giving me 25 buck a line discount for all 3 iphones, and charged me 10 bucks for the increase to 15 gigs data. I ended up $65 bucks a month less and triple data..

RE: Air ride hitches

I have the trailair / triglide. With a 4000+ lb pin weight (empty toyhauler) I can see the trailer move up and down on train tracks, speed bumps, or California freeways. Whoever thinks Air pin boxes are a waste of money or ineffective on a heavy trailer is misinformed.

So what is needed is a 16 volt current limited (5 amp per 100 ah) charger?

RE: Rear leafs have less spring on one side

If you have torsion bars up front, adjust them to make the front level side to side with a floor jack under the rear axle (to keep the rear tires off the ground). Then lower it and recheck the rear end. If you can't help it with the tbars, it gets expensive.

RE: duramax overheating

Most of your problem is in the intake. Hot air off the radiator is getting sucked into the filter housing, up to the turbo, which has to work harder to compress the hot air, which makes a hotter air charge going into the intercooler, which ends up pre-heating the air going into the radiator more then normal, which makes the cooling fan run more. The hotter air going into the radiator means there is less of a temp difference between the air and coolant, so the efficiency of the radiator drops, meaning the coolant temps rise. You can get the LBZ parts from the air filter to the turbo elbow and eliminate thate issue - but it will not be CARB approved. You may want to look at an aftermarket cold air intake (I run a banks with scoop). After you have the intake side taken care of, if you still have overheating, look on diesel place for a overheating lly's...
