RE: Odometer Problems

Who made the gage cluster? If it is a GM cluster they have had lots of issues. If not, I would guess a bad ground as the source of your problem.

RE: How to determine hitch weight capacity

I answered this in your other post. It should be stamped into the the underside of the trucks receiver. WRONG! That only gives the hitch capacity not the TV'S actual load carrying capacity. The only sure way to know is via a set of scales and reading the GVWR label on the drivers door post

RE: Need to look at those weight labels

Almost all to towables now come with a yellow tag glued on somewhere that states the weight as it left the factory, GVWR and a couple other useful pieces of information. Brochures are usually published way before production begins and are notoriously inaccurate.

RE: Dog Owners - Need Your Suggestions

Goldens are a great pet, except they are considered a large breed. They also require lots of exercise daily, and have lots of hair. But, if that is your leaning, think of a Lab/Lab mix instead. Some areas of the country rescue shelters will have lots of great mix breeds available for adoption for far less than a puppy mill dog.

RE: Highway 20 Oregon

Noce drive. Easy for anything. It is a normal highway used by all forms of traffic daily. It is slow through Philomath, speed in town is 25 and enforced.

RE: LT or P Tires ?

Mileage hit? Never heard of that excuse against LT tires. IMHO there is one and only one thing against a LT tire. They will ride a bit stiffer.

RE: Newbie Fifth Wheel Buyers...Need advice

How many hours a day do these businesses take? Camp hosting can stretch and suppliment any income you have. There are volunteer and paid positions all over the country. Some last a month some ask for 3 or 6 months stay in one place. Without that you will likely want 3 to 4 thousand a month to make it worthwhile.

RE: Looking to add solar

For only two batteries 150 watt panel should be OK. For hard core solar you will need a lot more of both panels and batteries

RE: Last Nail in the Coffin?

Security systems often do that when the hattery is dead and then connected to a charger or other 12 volt source.

RE: Need Help With Buying Fifth Wheel

Quality is a subjective term in the RV industy. Every salesman worth his salt is going to bad mouth brands he does not sell. No matter what brand or the price you pay you can get a bad one as easily as a good one. The brand I prefer you may not think much of. I can tell you my brand in 9 years has not had one factory caused problem. Enough said!

RE: Leaving seat while driving

I hate to admit it but... DD's when younger moved around a lot. Slept, made the bed, ate meals etc. DW has been known to bake dinner and make coffee all while I was driving. We have also been known to swap drivers while moving. Safe? Not in your life. But cross country in 70 hours? Thats how it happens.

RE: winegard Traveler slimline sat dish, how much wind?

Spent last winter in the Columbia river gorge, a place notorious for high winds. 50MPH is nothing there. Our Travler was up the whole time with no problem. I was more concerned eith my slide toppers ripping of. So they got strapped down.

RE: 1500 Towable Fifth Wheel

There is nothing short of a different truck that you can do to increase your trucks GVWR. There are some band aids that will help carrying a load though. As for hauling a 10K fiver? Forget it. That translates into approx 2000 pounds in pin weight. Your Ram simply does not have that much capacity after you add 350 pounds for hitch, people weight over and above 150 pounds, plus what ever you might add.

RE: Hwy 12 Washington State

Yes. It does climb thru the Cascades, it does follow rivers for a good portion of the road. From Spokane to where? To Portland and points south follow I90 at Ritzlville turn south on US395 toward tri cities. I82 south th I84 west to Portlandis probably the best. If your going north then I90 to Seattle.

RE: replacing electric brakes

You need to jack it up and look. I could be either 12X2 or 12X2-1/2. When you figure it out, just go buy the whole assemblies. They are usually about 50 dollars each.

RE: Suggestions for a "new" truck for now and future

1/2 ton NO! 3/4 ton maybe 1 ton more than likely Your choices depend on the size (weight) of any fifth wheel you might end up with in the future. New/newer 2500/250 series trucks are capable of hauling more than older ones but are still not really the best choices for large heavy fivers. I think you really need to first of all sit down, decide on your wants/needs and pick several fivers you think you could be happy with. Pick the heaviest GVWR of these choices and use that as a basis for your truck choice. At least that way you will have a fair shot at getting it right the first time. As for motors? Diesel is generally the best for towing. But depending on weights a gas motor might be satisfactory. Fuel economy towing will be better with diesel. Also truck size makes little difference in the economy debate and will be nearly the same no matter what you choose.

Yellowstone is not high enough to worry about.
