RE: portable deck with stairs

I have a set of porta steps. To me and the DW they are worth every cent. It takes about min and a half to set up and take down. Stores in front of the tail gate and behind the 5er hitch. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v163/jodyand/Mobile%20Uploads/20140702_181142_zpsbfd163ff.jpg

RE: Michelin Sidewalls Cracking - Updated

They cracked on our work truck within a year even the spare. The tires has never had any tire dressing on them. They also cracked on my truck so when it was time for tires i went with TOYO open county HTs. Been two years and no problems.

RE: 2WD or 4WD

If you know how to drive you don't need 4X4. Never had it on our work trucks or my own. Pull trailers on wood chips, wet grass, mud, gravel, sand, coal and just about anything you can think of. Never got stuck. The only place we would get stuck was at a strip mine in Fairfield Texas when it would rain. Then everyone was stuck. They had a big dozer to pull you out of or into the pit.

RE: And the GM hit's just keep on coming!

So Chrysler was never profitable? It looks like they were very profitable before Daimler took over.

RE: Floor jack

How's that work on the tow vehicle? I guess you are talking to me? Why carry a floor jack for a TV? They come with there own jack.

RE: HDTV Antenna Bent

One thing people overlook when they change from one antenna to another. Sun and weather are the enemies of coax cable.. Sun degrades the coax, eventually losses go up up up and the cable needs replacement. Weather tarnishes connectors and they need cleaning. WHEN you changed the antenna head you CLEANED the connectors and my have replaced the coax. Didn't help mine that's the first thing i tried was changing the cable.

RE: HDTV Antenna Bent

Tx.. What's is your call if I might ask. You know.. We hams are always wanting "DX" (for the non hams, "Long Distance") KE5DFR...Currently have not put up the antenna. I do not need to put up a Jack. A couple of years ago, we were camped right next to a new trailer with the jack and he could not get the stations I got with my Sensar IV. He could not believe it, so I had him bring his small TV over to my RV and hooked it up to my Sensar IV, scan the channels and he got the same channels I got. Took his TV back to his trailer and the Jack did not pick up the channels. That is more than enough proof for me. Ken That's how my bat wing was till i got the jack. Proof enough for me.

RE: REI Sale includes Yeti Coolers

I was interested in a Yeti, some how I stumbled onto this. It's worth a couple of minutes to watch and learn. I was surprised as to the pick of the "best" cooler by these guys. Thanks for the heads up though. Dan they didn't give capacities of the coolers, but I guess they were all about the same 1ftx1ftx2ft? nor did they say they put the same amount of ice in them, I assume they did. wish they had given the costs. bumpy He said he was putting 50# of ice and a 6 pack of drinks in each cooler.

RE: HDTV Antenna Bent

He's turned into a troll over this and clearly never read the report on how it was done. It cant get more real world than that, or it simply went over his head. I have a jack and can tell you i can pick up about 20 channels as where my bat wing only pick up 4. Now on my old trailer it was the same. So i guess the two bat wings were bad so why buy another bad one as it seems they make a lot of bad ones.

RE: Anybody towing with a late model gasser?

Sure, the GM 6.0 in both ¾t and 1t plus the Ford 6.2 in the Super Duty. They will handle the weight and you will be satisfied with the ride as well. I have a '94 12 valve Cummins and a 2002 6.0 Chevy. The Cummins = no prob with just about anything I put behind it...period. The Chevy, though equiped with the Tow package and tow haul = barely get out of it's own way with my 8,500lb TT. 45mph on gentle Interstate hills of Kentucky is not acceptable and dangerous! The 6.0 has cold air intake and high flow exhaust as well, so I'm getting a few more useable ponies than stock. I know how to haul heavy and keep the TC in lockup as much as possible as well. It's not like I just don't know what I'm doing. I can't imagine hauling anything heavier. Just because something "WILL" haul something, doesn't mean it should. I love the chevy, but gassers simply werent meant to haul in this weight class. Either that Cummins is turned up or you believe in fair tails. Which is it? That 94 Cummins came from the factory with a blazing 175 HP. A new V6 gasoline engine would kill that thing in a towing race. The Cummins has less than $100 worth of mods and pushes over 300hp. In fact, I have a #10 fuel plate but I could have just tossed the old one. I put 3K gov springs on it but didn't have to do that either, so FOR FREE I can get 300+hp out of the Cummins just by bumping the timing and tossing fuel plate. I wouldn't say that's a very radical modification...and you can't argue with 324K carefree miles. If someone wants to spend $60K on a new Diesel, have at it. About 7 years ago i had a 86 toyota pickup with a 22r motor. It had 389,000 miles on it when i sold it. I still see that old truck going down the road every now and then. I have a 96 Nissan pickup with 250,673 miles on it right now that i put 100 miles a day on.

RE: Need a used RV 5th Wheel Bed

The f550 dont come with a pick up bed. C/C or with a flat bed.

RE: Update on Jack Antenna install

You obviously replaced a broken antenna. A working Batwing will easily match that Guess i had a broken bat wing in my last two trailers. The jack gets way more stations then i ever got with the bat wing.

RE: I have a problem with a dometic DM 2652 Americana

Well i finely got around to putting my cooling unit in yesterday. Because of work haven't had the time till yesterday. But it is working like a champ a lot better then it has ever worked. Had to buy a new electric heating element because the old one was stuck and couldn't get it out. If anyone has a cooling unit go out this is the way to go took about 2 1/2 hours to change it out. Very easy job to do.
