RE: airbubble from toilet

When mine did it the cause was the dreaded pyramid of poo. Rid x and a lot of water finally flushed it out.

RE: Towing a towed and a boat behind mh

You should do some research on your own for the specific states you will be traveling. This forum has a bias against towing tandem, and much of the info you will get is inaccurate. I would say your length is going to be your biggest hold back. The only states that I know that have length limitations near what you are proposing are WY and MT. I will say that I towed many thousands of miles with my truck, 5er, and boat where my total length was over 75', and never got any trouble going through states with much shorter restrictions. That was my experience, and a risk I was willing to take, but I am not sure yours will be the same. There has been one of those stacker trailers used for sale near me for a couple of years. Interesting concept, but it looks like it would need a pretty light boat. Might be worth considering for your situation. And, for the record, there are not many states that actually restrict tandem towing to require the first trailer to be a fifthweel. But again, I would advise to do your own research on the states you will travel through and not rely on this forum for info on this specific subject.

RE: 2007 Ford f350? Known issues?

Not going to comment on the engine but I am curious why this engine would be better for a seasoned diesel owner than a novice??? If an engine is reliable, it should be reliable for all. Same said for something that most owners should walk away from.

RE: Colorado Truck of the Year again!!

Have you read the criteria for the awards? Only vehicles that are new or have some sort of redesign are eligible. With that criteria, what RAM or Ford should have been in the running?

RE: 2016 Titan XD Cummins- TFL

I wonder if Cummins would be allowed to sell the new 5.0 to Toyota. As was stated earlier, apparently Ram has an agreement with Cummins that only they can use the current 6.7. Seems like Nissan might have the same sort of agreement with them ??? How weird would that be ? - The same US company's diesel in two competing Japanese trucks. Nissan does NOT have exclusivity to the 5.0.

RE: Light bar

I have been looking myself The good ones are expensive. I got a quote for $720 for a Rigid that would fit in my front bumper. Really having to think about it for that price. I know there are much less expensive ones on Ebay, but I have also heard you really get what you pay for here. The other part is I am pretty sure that they are sold as "off road" lights, meaning they are not street legal. I'd like to get one for my trips through Utah. There is one stretch of highway we drive at night 3-4 times per year that is open range, and the black cows like to hang out on the road. I probably will end up with a light, just need to see a couple first hand to convince me it is worth the money.

RE: Waze App

I would try delete and reinstall. I have it on my iphone, and use it all the time. IMO, best GPS app out there. Love getting the alerts, especially about "police activity ahead".

RE: remember when

Since we are already off topic...... Tesla is a great car. But I really don't think that Ferrari or Lambo really give too much thought about it. Straight line performance, especially short distance acceleration, is about reaction time and traction. While 0-60 and 1/4 time is important to some of those owners, most seem to be more concerned about peeerformance above and beyond that, including how the car handles. The top brand sports cars still have a huge advantage there. And in regards to a brake job, I spent less doing that on my Porsche than I have on my past RAM. Where they get real expensive is if you have the ceramic brakes, but those last 100,000 + miles.

RE: Tire Build Date: How Old is Too Old?

I feel I am fairly conservative, and I go 5 years on trailer tires. So if I were you, I would run my tires another two years. If you go 5 years on tires, and get tires that are one year old, ask for a 20% discount (I know my Discount tire will do this). Doesn't change the age of the tires, but it allows you to run them for 4 years at the same price as 5 if they were new.

RE: remember when

No offense meant to all the fans of the 60's and 70's, but these are the good ole days right now.

RE: Canyon Diesel MPG - 22 city 31 hwy 25 combined

The diesel Canyon will likely be a nice option for those that live in a city and want a smaller truck to do home improvements and that is easy to park. With 181 HP, I can't imagine it being much of a tow vehicle though.

RE: 2016 Titan XD Cummins- TFL

Looks like it will do what it was designed for. To fill a gap between the light duty half tons and the heavy duty 2500/3500's I like it. I like it a lot. I would say that it is falling into no-man's land. Engine is not powerful enough to offer a substantial power advantage over the 3.5 EB or Hemi (or the Chevy equivalent). And it is not significantly more efficient than those above mentioned options either, so no big advantage in MPG. I hope it is a winner for them. But I think they have a tough row to hoe.

RE: 2006 Suburban for towing?

I have an 03 Suburban with the 8.1, and use it to tow a 6500 pound boat. Less weight and wind resistance, more motor, and the transmission does shift down into 3rd often, and 2nd sometimes. Nothing wrong with letting a transmission work, but if you don't want to do a lot of shifting, I would keep looking.

RE: Pullrite Super Glide? or Reese manual?

I would wait to buy a hitch until you buy your RV. Many will not need a slider, and even if you do, you can make it part of the package when you are buying the RV. I have had both a manual slide and a Pullrite, with two different trailers. My first RV I had for 2 years and I NEVER needed to use the slide. On my next (current) RV, I needed to slide it back EVERY time I put it away in my garage. The manual slide is a pain in the but. And, as others have said, you really have to watch the distance between the cab and trailer One time I did not, and ended up kissing my truck and putting a nice dent near the back window. If I went back to a short bed truck, I would go back to a Pullrite.

Sounds reasonable to me. What was the quote?

RE: camping around Denver Colorado

Chatfield and Creek have been covered. If you are considering something a little north of town, I would add Boyd Lake State Park or Horsetooth (Larimer County) to consideration. If you go to a State Park, there is a camping fee plus a vehicle fee. Everything will book out 6 months in advance.

RE: Rimadyl Or What

We use Metacam in our older dogs with joint issues. More expensive than Rimadyl, but seems to have less side effects.

RE: Choice of rear axle on 2016 F350

I can't imagine needing more than 3.73 in any of the new diesels. And I have the 4.10s. I woud not want anything with lower gearing.
