RE: Owners manual info GMC

Yes i made the mistake of gvwr instead of gcwr. Sorry . How do i delete the post, i was just trying to pass on info that i had not seen before and i have had a couple of GMC's since 2011 and missed it in those manuals. Actually i just looked at my op and i had it right, forgot everyone on here already knows everything, bye.

RE: Owners manual info GMC

My point is what the manual states, its useless until you are at 75% of gvwr. And actually detrimental to your mpg.

Owners manual info GMC

I bought a 2018 GMC 2500 dsl a couple days ago and today was reading the owners manual. In it about towing it said not to use tow/haul unless you were at 75% or more of gcwr. It said it was of no benefit and could cause you to use more fuel. I personally have never used tow/haul unless the trans was hunting between gears in all the trucks i have owned.

RE: CA Hwy 1

Downtheroad, yes a Tiffin DP 38QRA and 20ft enclosed trailer. Total length was right at 65ft. There will be instances where you will be using both lanes. You have to be aware of what you are driving and watch for everyone else as well. In my opinion i disrupt the traffic no more than the bicycles do.

RE: CA Hwy 1

RE: Def fluid

Its the universal answer from the dlr. I had a 2011 GMC and the tank had to be replaced at 600 mi and again at around 75k mi. As well as a sensor a couple of times. It has nothing to do with the def you are using.

RE: Truck bed rubber mat

I understand you dont have conveyor belt, but you could likely get used belt for nothing and depending on its thickness sandwich plywood between the belt material to get your required thickness. Just trying to help.

RE: TC ???

Anyone know if a Ram Laramie has air suspension or is it an option ? Had a dlr send me info on 2 they have and the lower trim has a pkg that includes rear air suspension but cant see if Laramie does. Dont know if it would matter though. I wil go there next week and look at them.

RE: TC ???

The guy has more stuff in it than my house. He said he has weights for lifting. Researching Dually already as my boat and trailer are approx 7500 lbs and i also have an enclosed trailer that varies from 4-8 k. By the time i add tounge weights i will need it.

TC ???

I really want an Arctic Fox 990. I have a Ram 2500 and if i went with Toyo 18in i can get to 8000 on axles. Weighed the truck today and full fuel, me and wife and **** normally in truck and was 3300 on rear, 5300 frt. I assume with the camper that the tailgate and bumper would be removed and i could move the spare up front. I still need some room for toungue weight. I am not against a dually but i have only had this truck a year and a half. Trying to make sense of it all.

RE: Dennis Dillon Ram

Dave Smith was bought out, so the pricing may have changed with the new ownership.

RE: Double hitch receiver for bike rack and 4 down towing

I welded an additional reciever on top of the double to get a motorcycle high enough to clear the towbar to our Jeep. I don't know why you couldn't do the same to lower one.

RE: Help with Backing Up

Put some markers where you want the tires to track if you cant see where you want to go. I have put pieces of tape down, rocks etc, then just ise the mirrors.
