RE: Leveling TC?

I get as close as possible with blocks, then adjust airbags. I'll use jacks to level if it's half a bubble. More than half a bubble will need more plastic blocks. I also have an onboard air compressor (Air Zenith).

RE: Need help with ideal setup (within budget)

Definitely consider at least 1/2 ton truck. V6 Forerunner would not be first on my list to tow.

RE: Dodge 3500 steering

I'm a bit confused with responses regarding cost. Since Dodge offered recalls on these systems, why are some of you paying for the repair? Not every year or part was affected by recall.

RE: Various amp draws

Is this measured with AC power amp or DC power amp? My Kenwood stereo draws about .4 when off, .55 when working and .02 when in stand by. I long press the Source button to enable stand by. My led light draw is similar to yours. I measured by pulling individual fuses and checking with multimeter.

RE: Dodge 3500 steering

To the OP, how is your steering box? After my previous 2nd Gen, I knew to install steering box brace right away on the 3rd Gen. Aftermarket hubs have never made it to the top of my list of must have. They are nice. Using power steering of the truck the factory unit bearings can be off within minutes of bolts being loosened.

RE: Onan MicroLite 2.5 LP series L

Have you disconnected the low oil pressure sensor wire? Onan oil sensor is usually open circuit when OK.

RE: Dodge 3500 steering

I just was informed that my 63000 mile dodge DRW 3500 4x4, needs the entire front end component: ball joints, pitman arm, steering rod ends, right hub, etc, replaced. Have any of you had this problem? My truck is a late 07, I bought it new. I wonder if the TC makes any difference Some trucks go empty and still have problems. Were all front end recalls performed by Chrysler?

RE: Propane tank full?

Small propane containers require an initial vacuum treatment before first fill. Do large tanks require this? I've read BBQ grill containers have thinner metal than RV propane tanks.

RE: Front wheel drive

If they used cheap pads and something caused some other high heat soak event the pad could have self dissambled despite correct installation. Definitely replace the major components on both sides. If one caliper is bad, the other is close behind.

Verizon myfi with Wilson Electronics Sleek 4gv booster for internet. No clue for television.

RE: A peeve of mine.

If I'm in an dense population center I expect no thank yous. If I'm in farm country it's very typical to get a thank you. Basically, city folk have no clue what it takes to drive a large vehicle. No big deal.

RE: Brake problems

Hopefully you find the problem before wrecking the tpms. 2006+ Dodge trucks are not forgiving with trailer electrical problems.

RE: 245/70R19.5 tire Air pressure Loaded and not loaded?

G rated tires are rated at about 4800lbs each with 110psi. At 55psi, each tire is capable of about 2400lbs. Or 4800lbs total tire capacity on the rear of a truck that weighs about 2700lbs total when empty. Nothing wrong with more air pressure. I was looking for softer ride and flat tire tread (with chalk) when empty. Truck was a daily driver at the time. I run my spare tire with Zero air pressure. No other way to fit on the truck with Superhitch. I have an onboard Air Zenith compressor.

RE: 24 Inch Hitch Extender Under The TC

Check your vehicle owners manual. It probably states maximum extension off stock hitch at 18". At 18" extension from stock hitch weight distributing not authorized. Figure your stock hitch has a 5k dead tow rating. Now minus by 1/3 for 18" extension. Your max tow with 18" extension is about 3500lbs. 24" extension off factory hitch not recommended. Torklift extension rated for 10k or more with weight distributing.

RE: 24 Inch Hitch Extender Under The TC

The Torklift Superhitch extension is a safe way to accomplish an extension. Pricey, but safe. Look around on the internet. It's occasionally on sale somewhere. Craigslist too. Torklift Pic from Torklift http://www.torklift.com/images/product_images/supertruss/supertruss.jpg

RE: Electrified frame, dead batteries!!!

You felt a shock while not connected to AC power? Sounds like an inverter creating AC power has a short to ground.

RE: Truck buying timing?

Always keep an eye on Dave Smith. Near the end of the year their dealership competition really heats up. They will pick you up from Spokane airport.

RE: 2013 3500 diesel pickuo

I get on the throttle hard when I have the fiver hitched and it does it. Pull away with a light foot and it does not. 800 lbft of torque does not help compared to your old 500 lbft truck The only shudder I had was from bad middle rear ujoint. Truck has not been stock since 3k miles on the odometer. Running extrude honed injectors and Smarty programmer. Your not driving a sports car. Auto tranny? Tires chirping? Too much suspension flex? Suspension unloading during heavy acceleration? Have you considered Torklift Stableloads?

RE: Will a smart TV work with your mobil hot spot

If you have an android smart phone and Verizon with unlimited data plan download "Foxfi" app. After a trial period there is a ONE TIME $7.99 fee. Turns your phone into a hotspot and can run five devices. You can talk at same time if you have a 4G connection. Runs my iPad, laptop, 55" smart tv. Who has a VZ unlimited plan? I have heard of old plans but they are restricted to older devices and 3g and they are phasing them out. I don't think any carrier offers truly unlimited data. Please tell me I am wrong. I really want to be wrong. I could use unlimited data. There is a way to buy someone's old VZ unlimited plan. Most on unlimited VZ data give it up for subsidized hand set. The unlimited does work on 4g. Unknown if the unlimited will extend to new HD 4g volte. Cheaper to Redbox a movie than pay for streaming.
