RE: Camping World Customer Service

I called camping world here in OKC and was told they had a 2 week back log of service orders so I told them that doesn't fly with me And I would call another service shop in town and got mine in immediately. I got to thinking if you were traveling would they expect you to stay in there parking lot for 2 weeks for an axle service. Nuts.

RE: Violentl vibration

Vette Racer, now that you mention it that morning was very humid and a fog in the air and in fact all week in Branson was wet and humid to the point of a foggy haze of humidity in the mountains there. That's a very good point, moisture cupola have been the problem. I'm taking it in next week for a complete axle service and brake adjustment so I'll make sure they give it a real good look at everything including wiring and grounds. I WII GIVE A FOLLOW UP.

RE: Violentl vibration

Not disk but drum and it was a short grade and really no need for exhaust just a little drag is all I needed for the grade but it shook bad. I'm a retired truck driver with most of my mileage of 34 years on the road was mountain driving so use of exhaust or jakes isn't new to me, I'm thinking the intergrated brake control was malfunctioning or some malfunction in one of the brake drums and brake hardware

Violentl vibration

I was leaving Branson Friday morning and as I left the campsite got on the highway and came to one of the down grades in the Missouri hills around Branson and stepped on brake as I decended down the grade and felt this violent vibration and immediately took foot off brake and it stopped, reapplied braked and again it happened. It did this on about 3 grades then I pulled over checked everything and saw nothing. Now I know the brakes need adjustment and my gain was up to 8.5 because of them being so in need of adjustment but just hadn't had time to get that done and this was just a short trip from home. Now I'm getting them checked out next week and in fact going to just have the axles serviced but going to have the Tech check it out real close but what do you all think happened. Now it wasn't the truck but the shaking was so bad it radiated into the truck. Give me your thoughts. Never had this happen before.

RE: Hitching Up to 5th Wheel

Before driving off, put it in any position you like but check TV antenna is down.

RE: Fuel mileage?

I agree, 10 mpg is bad but I think it's because it's been on the car lot and only had test drives and idled a lot which will lower mileage but not sure how long it takes to calculate again

Fuel mileage?

just purchased a new to me Chevrolet Duramax 6.6 with the Allison automatic, just driving it around town yesterday running some errands it shows average fuel mileage at 10.6, what do you think. I think it's still breaking in. It's a 2013 with 55900 on it I previously had a dodge cummins that got about 12 mpg up until about 75k then it began to go up to 19 around town and 12 to 13 pulling my 5er. Never had a Duramax before.

RE: Some thoughts

Yea I've thought about seeing if there is a block to remove between rear axle and spring and bed depth is the same as previous truck, yes I did air hitch to gain some space but mostly for cushion, yes I ask know I can get risers from trailer saver and I also have a little adjustment left on the hitch. The problem with my trailer is it has the MoRyde IS Suspension System, no axles to flip but I could take it back to MoRyde and have them put a bigger spacer in it to get it to hieght.

RE: Some thoughts

No that's with no trailer on it, stock hieght. My previous truck a Dodhe Ram 3500 RWD was at 55 inches, I think I can make some adjustments to either the hitch pin or the 5th wheel hitch itself.

Some thoughts

Just replaced my tow vehicle with a new to me 2013 Duramax RWD 3500, I had a 2006 Dodge Ram with the 5.9 Cummins, Well, the dodge bedrail sat at 55 inches tall the Duramax sits at 57 inches so what do you think? It's 2 inches higher but when I hooked up with the dodge and raised the legs on my 5er it sagged to the helper spring (barely) then I would have to run the air bags I had on it to level the trailer and truck for towing then I also have a trailersaver airride hitch that I air up to raise the trailer nose another inch or so. So my question is what do you think, do you think the 2 inches higher on my new to me truck will make much difference? Before I had about 5 inches between bedrail and trailer. Oh the reason I haven't hooked it up a tried it yet is I had back surgery and my hitch is in the other truck which I get the hitch tomorrow but just wondering, I think it will be fine when I put the weight of the trailer onto the truck.

RE: Hey 20 info

Thanks, I'll look at 26 again but it comes out closer to Portland which is a little above where we are head d and would have to go back south on I 5 but I'll consider it.

RE: Mor Ryde Pin Box Question

I've had 2 MoRyde pin boxes and loved them both. Might raise 1 inch but you might be able to lower your 5th wheel hitch in truck.
