RE: Proper Wheel Bearing Grease

When I bought my previous 5th wheel, 707L was one of Dexter's recommended greases. Used it for the 12 years we owned that rig with no bearing issues.

RE: Dodge's new 707 HP Tow Vehicle, why no Payload rating?

Don't think any Challenger comes with IRS. I drove a '14 SRT w/6spd man when I went to pick up my Ram MegaDually CTD. No IRS but it broke traction in 1-4 gears 5th it squatted and stretched out, barely got into 6th before I had to shut her down. The Hellcat is at $60k MSRP and that is with $1k gas guzzler tax. The wife and I have agreed, the next new car SHALL be a Challenger. My first car at 15 yo was a '70 318/727 2bbl. It didn't stay that way;) I wish I still had it. I beg to differ. Allpar Challenger Rear Suspension Rear suspension is a five link independent design with coil springs, gas charged monotube shocks, solid stabilizer bar, and isolated suspension cradle. Not surprising as it is built on the same platform as the 300/Charger.

RE: Can't believe what i heard

When we bought our new rig this spring the first thing the salesman did was ask what my TV was. He then told me the rating without looking it up. He was correct. I thought, Wow, things have changed since I bought my last 5er. Maybe not everywhere.

RE: RV Protection (covers, canopies, etc)

A proper cover is best but in winter a tarp can be OK if you don't get a lot of high winds and do it right. I put several plastic milk cartons down the center of the roof and run 2X4's between them. this provides a peak and allows air to circulate between the roof and the tarp. I also tie the ropes to a fence on one side and cement blocks placed a little way from the trailer on the other, instead of pulling it tight down the sides.

RE: Vancouver BC

Getting stuck in Vancouver is not a phrase you hear very often. Enjoy.

RE: Grand Design Refleion

I think they are all wired for a second AC in the bedroom. Our 303 RLS is.

RE: Dodge's new 707 HP Tow Vehicle, why no Payload rating?

You can't use the full performance of either car on the street without killing yourself, someone else or losing your license. Whichever comes first. That is why they have track days. The most fun you can ever have in a moving car!!! Double post.

The most fun you can ever have in a moving car!!! Agreed. The M5 won't win on a drag strip. It might win on a road course, depending on the course and will probably set you back at least 30K more than the Challenger.

RE: Watch What This B-787 Dreamliner Can Do?

Those light twins are pretty impressive with little fuel and no payload, but no Tex Johnson roll?

RE: Montana High Country 338DB, only 1 battery

Mine came with a single 12. The dealer gave me a credit for the battery and I put in twin 6's.

RE: Dodge's new 707 HP Tow Vehicle, why no Payload rating?

I am waiting to see how they shake down in the testing once some magazines start doing some real world comparisons. If it all pans out, I will have one. My guess is it will go like a rocket but take the curves like a kids wagon. For that much HP and price they should have gave it IRS. The Challenger does have IRS unless they have gone to a live axle for just this model.

RE: Transmission Temp?

Also depends where the pickup is located. Whether the temperature is measured before or after the cooler. Torque converter outlet will read quite a bit higher than the pan, especially if the converter has been operating unlocked for a period of time. With my old 4spd 47RE which only had lockup in 3rd and 4th, I used to see temps as high as 270 with the converter unlocked. It went back down quickly after the converter locked up again. Synthetic fluid handled it OK. Normal operating temperature with the converter locked was 150 to 170 depending on ambient temperature. The 68RFE in my present truck is about the same.

RE: exploding tire

Got over 7 years from my original 235/80 16D US made Marathons with no issues. Starting my 4th on a set of Chinese made E rated Marathons. I swapped the 16" wheels from my old trailer to replace the 15's that came on the new one. Again, no issues. I think climate has a lot to do with tire life. I think the cooler rain forest I live in is a lot easier on tires than hotter drier climes Sidewall cracking is seldom an issue here unless tires are really old. I also never tow above 100 kph (62 mph).

RE: Tire Inflation Guide

As this is on the TV forum I'm not sure if th OP is referring to his TV or trailer. The TV manufacturer gives recommended pressures. There can be significant differences in side to side weight on trailers so just dividing the weight on the trailer axles by four and airing to the average weight can be risky.

RE: Tire Inflation Guide

These are load rating charts not recommended pressures. All they do is give the maximum load a tire can carry at a certain pressure.

RE: First 6 months of 2014 sales numbers

How do you split Chevy and GMC sales? Same truck, same company. I've often wondered why GM still does it. Badge engineering has become pretty passé most everywhere.

RE: Trip to Quebec

St Jean Baptiste Day is the big one in Quebec. Usually in late June around the 24th. Don't get caught without a reservation that weekend.

RE: Ram 1500 EcoDiesel sets brisk sales pace

wilber1, And guess who posted this? "I'm ordering one and will tow a 7500 to 8300 # TT with it. 1800# payload" and I see you are a sucker for his misleading gibberish also! Enjoy your bliss... My bias? I just accept it for what it is, not criticise it for not being something it is not and wasn't intended to be. You aren't their intended customer for this truck anyway. Neither am I.
