RE: Old step-bars on new GM HD trucks

We picked up our 2015 GM 2500HD yesterday. It had no step-bars from the factory and the salesman told me the bars on our 2003 GMC would not fit. The dealer will install step-bars anywhere from $650 to $750 a set ...\ My 2500 was a little over 40K new in 09. It came with the nerf bars but I'd have to say that's something I would expect they could throw in on the deal for the check I would be writing. Just saying. Good luck with that, those days of "throw that in and we got a deal" are over here in AZ. They might give you a discount but you aren't getting anything for free.

RE: ignorance, judgment, neighbors

The point of my comment was in a "Short Sale" many "SHORT CUTS" are allowed. Most short sales are sold as is, in its current condition, with no guarantees, warranties or caveats of any kind...speaking strictly from California experience ..YMMV....Dennis Dennis, with all due respect, a short sale does not mean the new owner can't follow the CC&R's of a community. I'm a board member or our California based homeowner's Association and we had to force a sale of a homeowner who was behind on his dues (3yrs.). The home is now owned by the Assc. We are hoping the mortgage co. will foreclose on us so that they will be responsible for the fees and maintenance. A short sale doesn't release the new owner of honoring the CC&R's (Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions). MM. You might want to rethink that foreclosure. Here in AZ, the mortgage company, (bank or otherwise) won't pay the fees or maintain the property, in fact, they usually turn the utilities off and have the property winterized. Not much you can do to force them to pay up either, their pockets are a lot deeper than any associations. We have had to deal with 3 abandoned and then foreclosed on houses, all a stones throw from my house. If it is owned by the association, why not try and sell it?

RE: ignorance, judgment, neighbors

The issue of HOA's appears in the sellers disclosure. BUT it is up to the 'buyer' to research it and obtain a copy of it, it one exists. Real Estate Agents might help but it is 'not' their responsibility. I just bought property where there WAS an HOA but it was allowed to expire. The area is now inhabited by ex-snowbirds with RV's so there is not much chance of it ever being reinstated! HOA's do have an expiration date but it does cause confusion when purchasing property after they have expired because it's still noted on many documents. The county seat is the place to confirm stuff like that. This varies greatly by state. Here in AZ, once your offer contract is accepted, the title company will send you a copy of the CC&R and/or covenants and deed restrictions. It is the seller or sellers agent's responsibility to disclose this information and they are liable if they don't. You also have a short window to void the contract if there is something in the CC&R's or covenants that you won't accept. No penalty to you if you do this. It can get very complicated as I have gone through this 3 times in the last 15 years as both a buyer and seller. Bottom line is you need to research in YOUR state, because another state may be completely different.

RE: Why can't auto manufactuers do this?

They could, they just can't sell enough of them to make it worthwhile.

RE: New Problem with Building a MH Garage

The OP is in Green Valley Arizona, so all these other posters from different states are meaningless. There are even different rules between counties in AZ. He needs to go to the county and get the correct information. In Pinal County, you can build right up to your leach field, but you may not build anything over it. His county may be different, they may require a setback, they may not. Best advice is go to the County office and see what is required. Then you can make a decision on moving part of the field or not. Better to find out now then apply for a permit and have it rejected if you do need a setback. Just sayin'.

RE: Golf Cars in Campgrounds

OK Mowermech, you got me, you didn't say no carts in the west, I did read too fast.

RE: Golf Cars in Campgrounds

No golf carts in the west, excuse me. You obviously haven't been in AZ during Snowbird season.

RE: Mirrors caused check engine light....

That placement doesn't seem very intelligent. So if your mirror gets damaged in a parking lot or wherever, your truck may stop working? I don't know what they were thinking, out of all the places they could put it, they decided the mirror was best?

With all the emissions stuff removed, how are you going to get it registered in California??

RE: There all the same!

Jeez guys, he didn't literally mean there all the same. He meant there all a house on wheels, just different stuff inside. The premise is the same for all motorhomes, travel and live in it.

RE: Allison Tranny codes?

U2105 should be a code that means the tranny control module has lost communication with the ECM (engine control module). U0100 means tranny has lost communication with ECM & PCM modules. This could be anything from loose connectors on either module to weak batteries, bad ground. You can see these codes on light duty trucks, you probably don't see these codes on the 3000-4000 series Allisons.

RE: Pressure on the throne!

Is this a new problem or one that recently started? Check the roof vent and make sure it is open. I think this is your problem. Clogged vent, tank slowly builds slight pressure, flush toilet, pressure released.

RE: How to fix molding in trailer....

If you don't want nail holes, use construction adhesive, available at any Lowes, Home Depot, Ace. Just be aware that once it's on, it won't come off with-out damage to what it was attached too.

RE: Strange dip stick reading

Torque converter has partially drained down into the pan, makes cold dipstick reading appear overfull. You can check this by starting it up and letting it run a couple minutes, shift into drive and then back to park, shut down and go check it. Tranny fluid should still be cold and in the proper spot on the dipstick.

RE: After 3 years we finally named the truck....

We've named all our vehicles. Big Silver for the truck, Lil' Silver for the Honda Civic and Vibablue for the Pontiac Vibe. Guess what colors they are, LOL. Funny we haven't named the 5th wheel though, it just gets called AutoMate.

RE: For you dog lovers...

There are really two reasons we got into RVing. One was I refuse to fly anymore and the other is our two Chiweenies will not be left at home or boarded. So the solution was first a TT, then graduated to 5th wheel. They are great travelers. One likes to watch the world go by, the other curls up on the seat and goes to sleep till we stop. No problems at all.

RE: Ghost in Our Cardinal??

It is caused by the high heat and the thermo dynamics affecting the fluid, causing expansion and contraction, expansion while being heated makes it go out, then it cools, but there is no way for it to pull back, then the next time it heats up and creeps out a bit more, eventually leading to the gap you are seeing, put something there that would be like a pencil against paper and watch it and you should see marks made as the slide creeps out. I believe this is the answer. I have no leaks and level hasn't changed in 4 years, yet every summer, mine does the same thing. The bottom will creep out about 2 inches. The reason I believe this is the answer is because it doesn't do it from late October thru May. Only does it when it gets really hot here in Tucson.

RE: Chevy Duramax Fuel mileage

over 40k miles, 14.5 empty, 11.8 with the 5er in my sig. I pull serious hills. WOW I get almost exactly same as you do. Exception is around DFW, what ever the additive is they put in the fuel cuts us down about 2 MPG. In Texas, it's the bio-blend diesel. I thought it was all of Texas not just the big cities. On my trip to Austin this year, I knew right away it was bio-blend. Lost 2 mpg towing and 1 mpg without the 5ver. Everywhere we went in Texas was minimum of 5 to maximum of 20 percent blended.
