First trip and first major failure

First trip of the year was Memorial weekend. Got 20 miles out of town and my truck died. Engine light, no power. Pulled over and checked the code and it said #2 injector dead. Ok. shut it down. Clear code. Fire it back up. Ran ok. Headed back home and called shop hoping they could drop an injector and get back on the road. Nope. High pressure pump went out sending filings through the system. So 6 injectors, lines, pump. NO camping trip. I am now $5K later and it runs like a dream. Been out a couple times. To be honest. I got the truck for $10K under book and it has 221K miles on it and this is the first major issue. Those were stock parts. I certainly got my money out of those parts. I love this truck.

Old Parts locating

I got a buddy that picked up a great 1985 El Dorado class A. The thing is awesome. GM 454 that runs like brand new, not a tick in it. Everything works great and is in really good shape. However. The door is pretty loose and in bad shape. Is there any source for finding parts for these? We have looked online and found only one place that even had a new one and they wanted $800 for it. His is the old square frame type and it is a left hand door which I thought was common but is proving difficult to find.

RE: Insurance question

I have Progressive. My TT is covered by my vehicle policy while connected. I have a secondary policy that covers the TT while not connected for damages and replacements. Rate is $157 annual.

RE: You had close call, scary moment, or accident, towing?

When the TT was brand new we bought a new 1200lb WDH to go with it. Third trip we came home and one of the snap up brackets for the chains was bent to the point of nearly being ripped off the A frame. Went and replaced it under warranty. Next trip both were bent. That really scared me. What would have happened if they have come off with the bars still attached? Battery and Propane tanks all sitting up there. Could have been a disaster. Dealer contacted Reese and found out that the 1200lb brackets were defective and we were upgraded to the 1500lb brackets immediately.

RE: How much is to much for no tow/haul mode?

Towing the rig in my sig. At 65 mph RPM are almost identical in Tow mode or regular. I use tow all the time with the TT because I like the lock up of the trans and it aids in slowing because it makes the auto trans behave more like a manual when you let off the throttle. It doesn't free wheel coast like an automatic. It will stay engaged and let the engine slow you. Now I know your newer Ram probably has the factory exhaust brake so this is less of a concern but also the Tow mode engages different programs in the computer such that extra cooling is taking place in the trans by routing fluid in a slightly different way. Basically you are telling the truck that it should be prepared for more work. The engine doesn't necessarily care, it is more to let the truck protect the trans.

RE: Four Season bunkhouse Travel Trailers

I would say that if you bought one like mine with the enclosed belly you could probably add a thin layer of insulation to the inside of the "skin" they use to enclose it which would add.

RE: Four Season bunkhouse Travel Trailers

Ours is listed as the Thermal Package which means the bottom of the TT is enclosed. NOT insulated. It has a sort of corrugated plastic sheeting that is attached to the bottom so the gear is not exposed. The heat is ducted through the floor and is supposed to keep the underside heated. I would not try to use it all winter but we have camped in temps down to freezing and it kept quite warm. Didn't use that much gas either really.
