RE: Fifth wheel hitch for the ford puck system

I am a B&W fan, but a Reese Elite is a very good hitch. The Elite has a very good locking jaw, it's also a very thick.

RE: Better to lower hitch or raise pin box?

To gain clearance you lower the Pin Box, or Raise the Hitch. Are you wanting more bed clearance? I am sure that is what you are asking about, if so either way works. If you have an extended pin box raising the hitch will help with inside bed rail, and back of pin box problems. If you have a cover on your truck watch about raising your hitch so much it hits the cover.

RE: Bunkhouse or Rear living room?

We have a similar situation with four of us, my kids are 13 year old daughter, 7 year old son. I had a 34' bunkhouse before we bought our RL we have now, I have no regrets with our decision. We love the big living room and recliners, my kids could care less where they sleep. Sometimes one will sleep on the recliner, other sleeping bag in the floor, then maybe one will use the sofa bed. The comfort of the living area was the most important decision, my kids and wife made the decision to go with the rear living. I will never buy another Bunkhouse, I am not ruling out a Toyhauler though.

RE: When to use the slider?

After you get the trailer over 45 degree to the truck, the tires and wheels are in a bad bind. To answer the question, I would slide the hitch while backing on an incline or decline if your clearance is close on flat surfaces. A SB truck will get into a fifth wheel if you don't pay attention, any trailer will hit at some point in a turn backing up. I never understood the needing to jack a RV trailer to 90 degree, commercial trucks need to at times to get in tight spots.

RE: B&W hitch

If the release lever is just loose on the driver side, that is typical for it to have some movement. If you have the draw bolts torqued down, you can not grab that latch handle and pull straight out on it. The latch handle will still move forward and back, but if torqued down on the draw bolt, no way you can pull the handle out.

RE: Question for B&W owner

If you have a turnover ball under bed mount you can get a 20k Companion. Your under bed rails will still work, I would assume you can still use your head coupler. You will probably only need a new hitch base to get the 20K rating, I would confirm that with B&W.

RE: 4 Wheel Drive or not

How in the world do those Alaska State Troopers manage to survive on all of those snowy, icy, muddy, gravely roads with only 2wd patrol cars? How do cops across the rest of the country manage to do the same thing? Are they that much better drivers? That is a good point, I have wondered the same thing about the troopers in snow country.

RE: 2015 GMC Duramax Runaway

The young man in the video said it sucked that out of his hand, video evidence shows he froze up and ran.

RE: Waiting for our 2015i GMC 3500HD Duramax

Id consider a GM 3500 when Duramax ups the power. That is very funny, I hope that was just a joke. I have never heard anyone say the reasons they won't consider a Duramax is lack of power.

LMAO, that video is hilarious at the end. X2

RE: Hitch capacity

I would do my friend that favor, an unloaded Momentum will not be 16K. Help them out, they will owe you a favor.

RE: Questions on 2 inch drop shackles for my truck

I bought 2" drop shackles for my truck, and installed correct track on my trailer for another 2", my setup is level. I did install Airlift bags and a wireless compressor to keep everything where I want it, towing or empty. I will never understand why these new truck beds are so high, it makes towing level a task. I had my trailer close without any modification, (only hitch adjustment) but I like a level truck all the time so I leveled it with shackles.

RE: Tire Load Range

I would ask the dealer about Ribs, they are just a little more.

RE: Do you need a slider hitch with a 61/2 ft bed

Is going to a shorter bed truck an upgrade? please explain how thats an upgrade with the added cost of sliding hitches, concern of working it, and loss of cargo room in a long bed? How about resale value? Used buyers want a truck to haul stuff. I'm sure the OP was only stating upgrade about a newer truck, not throwing off on a long bed. Everyone has their opinion on trucks for different reasons, some might own several trucks. Personally I would never buy a CC long bed truck to drive, I do however buy only long bed trucks for my business. I actually buy dual wheel long beds, SRW long beds, diesel, and gas engines. My point is their really is no one size fits all truck, I buy only 2WD for my shop, only 4WD for my personal use. It's not just different strokes, it's different applications require different equipment.

RE: 1st reports on the new 2015 GM p/u's

That looks like a super nice setup. IMO, the 6.0 is a total dog and not worth anyone's time but I tend to get a lot of flames for saying that. I'm glad it is just your opinion. My first hand experience as a contractor is that the 6.0 has and is doing everything we ask of it without issue. I agree, I have never been disappointed in our 6.0 trucks at the shop. I am going to buy another one of those dogs before the end of the year. My crews have never complained about them, I have bought that engine since GM started making it. I have also bought Duramax engines the entire time as well, all tools have an application.

RE: Open Range Slide @ Myrtle Beach

I remember seeing Costal RV services there.

RE: Yet another hitch question but with a little twist & incline

The only slider that has angle issues as you described is the Pullrite Superglide. Manual sliding hitches have no issues with hooking up at an angle. I am sure someone will chime in about the Andersen. My 337 will turn really well without sliding my hitch, I have the option to slide it back if I choose though.

RE: We brought it home

That is a great floor plan, from a great company. Congratulations on your purchase.

RE: Cool vintage pickup Camper Special

That truck would be top 10% of that particular model. I haven't saw many non show trucks that clean. That is the first for me on that generator under the hood, that looks OEM.
