RE: Bought a new Ram yesterday

Wife drove it back from Vegas while i drove the motorhome. I kept asking her if she needed fuel and answer was no. From Vegas to Fernley she got 21.7 mpg according to gal to mi calc, dont know what dic said. Kinda hard to beat that. And the mh dic said 10.1. When we got outa Vegas i set the cruise at 68, pretty darn good for 8.9L and 33k lbs. Now i need to order the stuff to flat tow it.

RE: 2018 Ram w/Hood Scoop

They have to get more air in to keep ex temps in check. Making power is the easy part.

RE: Over Weight Axle, How Much Is To Much

You could look up the axle from the mfg and its probably rated well above what Ford stated. I looked up the axle when i had the Tiffin Red and gcwr was 50k, i dont remember the other figures. Tires is all i never exceed.

RE: Bought a new Ram yesterday

The Ford is flat towable if you get a manual shift tcase but then you cant get the interior like this truck has. As soon as you upgrade the Ford it forces you to shift on the fly which has no neutral or if it does they dont make it known.

RE: Bought a new Ram yesterday

Research what i consider the low price leaders in the brand you want. I dont tell them any numbers, i let them tell me. I knew that i could buy the truck at Dennis Dillon for probably 3-4 k less than their supposed lowest price. I had a trade that was paid for and researched that. Could i have got a better deal than i did, sure but it was fair to me amd thats all that matters. They gave me 5k more for my trade than i was prepared to take.

Bought a new Ram yesterday

This one http://www.desert215superstore.com/car/680621/New_2016_Ram_2500_Laramie?lpid=168 Although this post should be in the dingy section as we are going to flat tow it for awhile. In a year or 2 we will sell the motorhome and go back to a TT so i am preparing for that. We were going to buy a Ford but you cant get a nicely equipped Ford that is flat towable. I have had all brands and they are all good trucks. This one puts a smile on my face when i drive it. Stopped in to look at it and went back after a few hours and told the salesmen that they had one chance at bringing their best deal and i would say yes or no and that was it.

RE: towing a small boat behind travel trailer

Check with the states your going to travel in. Its legal and safe if done properly. I towed an enclosed trailer behind my 28ft tt for several years. It works quite well. You might need an endorsment or different class drivers license though so check with your state. Most on here just believe its not legal without ever doing the legwork. Also dont rely on websites that show towing regs, you have to check with each state itself.

RE: Firearm deposit at border?

It was quite easy for me shipping to Ak. FFL ships it to yourself in care of the recieving FFL and that way there is no background check. They hand you the unopened package. The 2 FFL's comunicate with each other and show proof of FFL before its done.

RE: Allison 2500

you should always shift to neutral before shifting to drive or reverse. You will need to take it to a Freightliner or Allison dlr to trouble shoot your problem though as rv dlr's in general dont work on the chassis.

RE: Firearm deposit at border?

You could probably take it through Canada or you can do as i did and ship to Tok, Ak and on the way back have it shipped from Tok to your entry point in the US.

RE: My 2016 Alaska stats ($)

7200 mi and $2997 in fuel, but that doesnt include the exchange rate for Canadian fuel so actual will be lower.

RE: 2016 jeep wrangler supplemental braking

I use M&G on our Jeep and did on our pickup as well. There are lots of options and i dont think there is a bad one, just different methods of doing the same thing. You have to decide if you want to rmove it each time you unhook or not and go from there.

RE: Building an RV Park from scratch under 50k?

There are still counties in states that have no building dept or permits required other than a state permit for septic.

RE: My son is broken down in Wendover, NV/UT

There is a auto repair business on the west end of town that should be able to take care of him.

RE: Provincial parks payments

When i go to or through Canada i go to my bank and order Canadian money to take with me. You can get it at an ATM in Canada but the fees are high.

RE: CA Hwy 89 Monitor Pass

The road is not that tight. As long as they are comfortable with mtn grades there is no other issue. If they want to avoid the pass then go to Gardnerville and take Centerville rd across to 88. Tell em to take a left at the 7/11.

RE: Follow uip to California Speed limits

State engineers have determined the speed that they believe is safe. The 55mph nationwide limit was a joke. Nv made it so a ticket was for wasting resources and didnt go on your record for speeding. Most of Nv is 75 on interstate and 70 on state hwy. i travel the state alot and there is no mayhem out there.

RE: Towing a 24' enclosed trailer

I,towed an 8.5x20 enclosed trlr with side by side and motorcycles behind our 06 Sightseer 26. I made sure not to have alot of toungue weight. It went over the sierra 's 45 mph which is the same speed our next mh a dsl pusher did it at. Only differance was the gasser got 4mpg. Freinds used to heckle me as the trlr was nearly as long as the mh.
