RE: Power Wahser to Clean Rear Radiator

Go buy a cheap $79 electric pressure washer at Home Depot or elsewhere and hook it to your hot water heater. They arent made for hot water to go through them but will last awhile doing this. When it gives up buy another. I was a Hotsy dlr and you can buy alot of cheap pressure washers for what a hot water pressure washer costs. Also there are very few true steam cleaners out there, just hot water pressure washers. Marketing has people convinced they are getting a steam cleaner when its just a hot water washer.

RE: Need Expert Suspension Advice

Just make sure the tires are rated for the load.

RE: DEF Shelf Life!

I would like to see a proven case of bad DEF. Like i said mine had a problem the first week where it said poor quality DEF and it was the pump inside the tank. They replaced the tank and all is well. It never was poor quality DEF, thats just the msg that appears. In 70k mi mine has had several brands of DEF in it. In our Mercedes they said i could even get away with running distilled water if i was unable to get DEF but would have a check engine light but no limp mode.

RE: DEF Shelf Life!

I have a 2011 GMC and the only DEF related problem i have had was when it was a week old. It has never had DEF from the dlr other than the first tank. Heat and sunlight are its enemy. Its so common place now that i am not sure you could even buy any that has been sitting long enough to go bad.

RE: Sold the TT

Bought a 26 ft Sightseer. When we go from this the plan is around 36ft DP. I was pulling doubles before and there are places we want to go that we werent legal with the doubles. This way we can pull an enclosed trailer and take most of what we want to take.

Sold the TT

08 KZ that has been one of the most trouble free of anything i have ever owned and hope it remains that way for the new owners. Bought a small MH to see if thats the route we want to take before dropping cash on a new or newer larger one.

RE: BMW X5 35d as tow vehicle

For the record my german suv has never had a problem as of yet and has 70k mi on it, but my 2010 Dodge PU that is now gone had to be towed out of my driveway twice and only had 26k mi on it.

RE: BMW X5 35d as tow vehicle

And how many miles would that be ?

RE: BMW X5 35d as tow vehicle

We have a Mercedes GL350 with V6 dsl. I have never towed anything other than enclosed cargo trailer but it does it just fine but mpg does drop significantly when towing. It consistently gets 25+ mpg when not towing and i have got as high as 31. All this from a 7 passenger awd suv. I have never had to add DEF between oil changes. My only gripe with it is the service cost which is done every 10k mi.

RE: Anyone tow tandem?

I have been towing tandem bumper pulls for many years. You need to be diligent about the weight transfer on your tt when towing doubles as it will lessen the tongue weight. Other than alot of the misinformation on here like it being illegal in Ca (its legal there) it can be done and done safely. Instead of random sites that list towing laws you need to check with each state you plan to travel in. Be prepared to have people that have no clue to come up to you when stopped for gas etc and tell you its not legal or not safe. If you have other questions pm me and i will answer as best i can as these threads on here can get quite lengthy with lots of misinformation.

RE: Dry Camping Silver Creek Idaho

We were about a half mile past there along the creek last year. It was nice but i have never seen so much trash left behind in campfire rings in my life.

RE: Truck salesmen are idiots

When i lived in Prescott i went to the Ford dlr and asked what they would sell me a cc dsl 4x4 truck for and all i got was about $55k. I went to the Dodge dlr and asked and the salesman told me 53, xxx.xx. I had told the salesman at the Ford dlr that i cant write a check that says about 55k on it. Guess what i bought and it wasnt because it was less $$
