RE: Question for those that own both Diesel and gas trucks?

I've driven diesels since '86 in the workplace, owned diesels for my daily drivers since '94, but own a few gas burners like my wife's Odyssey, V10 F250 and a Silverado 3500 8.1 and wait for the light to go off EVERY TIME I crank them:B

RE: my last Suburban

The new Tow Ratings Guide list nothing higher than 8,500 for Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe/Yukon. Perhaps the 2500 series is no longer available. I thought the 2500 Suburban was discontinues a couple of years ago.

RE: Simple question for B&W 5th wheel hitch owners

Yeah, mine fits tight enough I had to tap it on with a small hammer. Mine too. If it is falling off, the spring steel is no good. They will send you another one.

RE: Simple question for B&W 5th wheel hitch owners

I've used B&W Companions for years before they came out with the head leveling spring. I much prefer it. Keeps it level for easy hitching.

RE: Air bags on F-250

I've had airbags on my last two duallies and love the "adjustability" of them as I added a Viair 10007 onboard air system with the Firestone dual pneumatic gauge, with them plumbed independently. I can now change the air pressure in the bags as road conditions change. I also put in a air coupler on a ball valve under the right rear door so I can air up truck, trailer and bike tires on the road or in the campground. I have Firestone bags, but would not hesitate to use either AirLift or PacBrake as they do the same job.

RE: The Ultimate Earth Roamer

Pretty cool rig. But for $1.5 million, I think I'd rather have $1.4 million of actual Earth, and maybe $100k of Roamer. Excellent point!

RE: 2016 Ram 3500 auxiliary fuel tank plumbing??

I did a bit more research and found the Wix 33003 which is compatible with gravity flow diesel and got one of those. Thanks.

RE: 2016 Ram 3500 auxiliary fuel tank plumbing??

That will work 143. But make sure to install in the line an inline filter of no less than 3 micron. The one I use was used in GM 6.5 trucks I understand. It has a threaded fitting at both ends so you can fit barbs on for the hose. I'm on the road right now but when I get home could post the part number. Thank you for the suggestion. I was talking with a friend of mine about this today. I will give it a go at trying to find it. Edit: Found it, but will a filter that size gravity feed?

RE: 2016 Ram 3500 auxiliary fuel tank plumbing??

I know I don't own a Dodge, but this topic caught my eye and interest. I just put in a new auxiliary tank yesterday in my 6.7. I had toyed with the idea of a Titan tank, but too much money for the extra storage you are getting, so I bought an aluminum one from Pickup Specialties. It is a 51 gallon upright tank. I too wondered if the auxiliary, if left open, would overflow my main tank. So I found a 12v 3/8" electric solenoid on Ebay from valves4projects and installed it. I put on a brass ball valve first then put the solenoid after it. Ran a wire to my upfitter swtich(a simple toggle would do well) so I can now leave the ball valve open and flip a witch to open the solenoid and fill the OEM tank. A little redundant, but a little more peace of mind I guess.

RE: How do you carry Kayaks on your 5er

https://i.imgur.com/OUpYgH1l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lKwr5tZl.jpg This is what many are referring to. Works great, many use it and no permanent mount. If it won't go in your garage just take the rack off the roof. You probably aren't going to be driving around with the front T attached when you are not carrying the kayaks. Correct. Even though I've found that if I'm not carrying the 12ft kayak, with my B&W moved to the rear, I can carry the 10 footers on the cab of the truck with the roof racks. But with the 12s, the front rack is a must with the 5er.

RE: Valvoline Premium Blue 15W-40 @ Advance Auto Parts

Back in July NAPA had the Extreme Blue 5w-40 full synthetic for $17.99 a gallon. so I bought 10 gallons. Enough for me to change my 6.7L 3 times. Plus, at the time, it was the only synthetic on Ford's list of oils for newer trucks. BTW, I walked into the nearest NAPA dealer and was impressed at the new store.

RE: Where do you mount the TST 507 series Repeater?

I just talked to the TST people on Tuesday regarding this matter. I've ran the same set up with 3 campers and two truck where I have the external antenna on the top of my rear view mirror and have not had a problem except dropping reception in the rain, until I installed a dash cam! The dash cam is "dirty" when talking about Rf waves(interference). I had tapped into the fuse box and used the cigarette plug as the power and had no problem, then I decided I may want to use the camera in other vehicles and I switched to a transformer and took out the cig plug. That's when I lost all connection with the sensors. I called them and talked to them last week and they were amazed that I'd had no problem with a all 3 42ft campers and long bed trucks until now. They recommended the repeater and for me to move my external antenna to the back glass area. They advised to mount the repeater in the front compartment where the batteries are and to try and center it in the compartment if I could. With the generator shroud, it won't be a problem. They also stated that the repeater antennas needs to run front to back and not side to side. It just came in the mail today and I should get it installed next week and will let you know.

RE: Occasional bogging

By chance have you scanned it to see if there are any stored DTCs(diagnostic trouble codes) in it? Could be anything from a throttle position sensor to a MAP or MAF sensor. My '13 F350 6.7L had a stumble/buck upon acceleration and it turned out to be a bad MAF(mass air flow sensor). Took several months and many trips to the dealer to figure it out as it never set a code. Good luck and let us know. Sincerely hope it isn't much.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

Yes. Last summer they pulled into a campsite went to put the slides out and the entire slide, frame and all, fell onto the ground. Keystone took the camper and repaired it and just under a year later, this happened.

RE: Air bags how to use them

I have had airbags on both of my last two duallies and it makes a huge difference in ride quality on rough roads. I have Firestone bags as they were the cheapest at Summit Racing when I bought them in '10. After a few trips with them and the bicycle/foot pump, I bought a Viair 10007 onboard air system with the Firestone dual pneumatic gauges and haven't looked back. I also plumbed in an air coupler underneath the passenger side rear door with a ball valve so I can air up tires for the rig, bicycles or pin box with no problem. It is an expense, but after seeing all of the manifold troubles with the wireless one, I went with this setup. Keep in mind that MANY people still have no trouble with the wireless one. I've used this same system on two different trucks as I made it where I can remove it pretty easily.

RE: Possible frame weld broken on new Montana

The list just keeps getting longer. Here is a 2016 3711Fl that has already been repaired once. This is four in the last month. http://i.imgur.com/3jcOhZJl.jpg
