RE: Pop Up

For us, there is a difference between "camping" and "RVing." To each their own. A few months ago, we sold our trailer and bought a Coachmen 108ST popup. What a difference! No heavy WD hitch to mess with, can tow it with something that gets decent mileage (our SUV), easy to set up and take down (electric, no hand cranking involved), plenty of room for the two of us, and no extra expense of owning a pickup truck used solely for towing a few times a year. This is exactly why I sold my Dually and my 31.5 ft travel trailer. We now have a capable TV (see sig) and will tow a nice sized pup just fine. I'll probably still use a small WD hitch and sway control. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Question On 93 Coachmen TT.

sounds like a grounding issue to me

RE: How to fix this

You need to check and make sure there isn't rot there. Many times those lower mounts will pull out due to wood rot. I would grab a pic and see if you can pull any wet wood out. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Opinion on 01-04 Chrysler Town & Country

The 3.3 is a great motor as well as the 3.8. I would go for the 3.8 for the power. If you can get the newer body style with the 3.8 or 4.0 would be better for towing. The newer Town and Countries and Grand Caravans all have heavy duty cooling packages including the transmission cooler. It may be a little stretch financially to get an 08 and up but it would be well worth it down the road. If you do go with the earlier model make sure you add a transmission cooler. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Walkers

Some sites have no clear boundaries. I generally say nothing as long as they are not causing trouble. Not worth me getting out from under my awning. Neither is it worth me cresting an adversary. Camping in a campground is somewhat of a community experience... Just offer them a drink.

RE: Our Bucket Light

Love it!! Great job!

From what I understand it's more of a cap less system, this plug is more of a dust cap than anything. The tank is sealed by some type of bulb system...that is until you put the filler nozzle into it. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Molded Fiberglass Trailers

Here is a 40+ year old molded fiberglass Motorhome that my father in law owns. The top seam has split and it leaks like a sieve now. They can all leak, even airstreams can leak http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj109/jerem0621/IMG_0799.jpg width=540 The floors are destroyed along with the interior. The issue with water is that even though the fiberglass holds up everything else deteriorates. The other issue is that fiberglass WILL deteriorate eventually. Especially once water gets to the non gel coat side. Thanks! Jeremiah

When DEF equipped trucks hit the scene, I thought GM's fill location was lame, after hearing about the number of Ford guys who have contaminated their fuel systems with DEF, it seems to have been a stroke of genius (or they just got lucky). Now the unsightliness of the GM DEF tank is another matter. Neighbor just bought a new Dodge. DEF fill is next to the fuel cap. Here is the Ram EcoDiesel filler's. Yep. That's a plastic plug for the diesel full. http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj109/jerem0621/CBCDCDEC-96FC-4071-9B36-44DD20CF419E_zpssbsv3f2t.jpg width=640 Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Fifth wheel hitch no bed rails

Curt makes the X5 rail kit. Basically you install the Curt gooseneck or the B&W gooseneck then buy the Curt X5 rails. Once installed you can use any fifth wheel hitch you would like. Rails when you need them. Clean bed when you don't. Also, you could get an Anderson Ultimate Fifth Wheel hitch that will work with any gooseneck hitch made. This is the cheapest and the strongest option. Thanks, Jeremiah

RE: Bumper Hitch Question

Here is a snip from the install instructions for the Reese friction bar. Mitch 4. When towing during slippery conditions such as wet, icy, or snow-covered roads or on loose gravel, turn on/off handle (5) counterclockwise until all tension is removed from unit. Failure to do so could prevent tow vehicle and trailer from turning properly. Good call Mitch...that's a benefit of the sway bar. You can take them off when "straight line" sway control can be a negative.

RE: Companies That Stand Behind Their Products

I bought a new Town and Country less than a month ago..took it on my families summer vacation and the water pump failed on me. Started squealing and making all kinds of racket. 600 miles from my home dealership I take it in to a dealership in town close to where we are vacationing. They took care of everything and my van is back in shape. Only lost about 5 or 6 hours. So, Chrysler stood behind their product. I hope that counts! Jeremiah

RE: RAM 1500 Ecodiesel, anybody seen one in the wild?

I like the back up cameras. My new minivan doesn't have the proximity sensors and I am glad. I never trusted them anyway. However, They are just another tool in the tool box to help me be a better driver. Funny, I remember as a child old men saying the same kind of thing about passenger side rear view mirrors. Those things are really for those who can't drive. Lol. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Custom PIDs for 2004 Ford 6.8L V10 (2-valve)

Download dash command. It's a $10 or $20 app and you can buy the ford PID for $10.00 that can read the transmission temp. User DodgeGuy has a V10 and uses this app. I use it as well on my 2000 lincoln. Thanks, Jeremiah

RE: Horror Stories

The issues with the engine are well documented and fixes readily available. The 5 speed transmission that the 6.0 is coupled to is a a fantastic transmission.

RE: RAM 1500 Ecodiesel, anybody seen one in the wild?

Good stuff NinerBikes. The wifi I have here at the hotel isn't letting me upload my video of the Ecodiesel... I'll get this video uploaded when I get home and post a link in a few days. So far, I am impressed.

RE: New to forum and 3/4 ton towing questions

I am pretty sure that things change some when you step up to a Dually. I read somewhere that the frames are a bit thicker on the Dually and I know that the rear end changed from a sterling 10.5 on the SRW F250 and F350 to a Dana 80 on the Dually. So the comments that say the F250 and the F350 are the same truck practically must be referring to SRW. Yes I know it's obvious but the facts somewhat get muddy with so many configurations with the same badge on the fender. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: RAM 1500 Ecodiesel, anybody seen one in the wild?

Here is a pic of the filler plug installed. http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj109/jerem0621/9EBBE8C0-3377-4AEA-B8D1-80E13C1B017A_zpse70u6jci.jpg width=640 I asked the service manager what is the biggest issue they are seeing with the EcoDiesels. He told me that the biggest issue they are seeing is users running the DEF dry and the truck shutting down. Most people are use to Gas trucks and didn't understand the need to fill DEF. He also said that they have not had any EcoDiesels come Back for a major issue. I am not sure if that's accurate information or not but it's what the service manager said. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: RAM 1500 Ecodiesel, anybody seen one in the wild?

Don, thanks for the kind words about the van. We were out about 5 hours total. The dealership took great care of us and the motor is quieter than ever. The work order described the damage as internal separation of the water pump. I have no idea what that means. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: RAM 1500 Ecodiesel, anybody seen one in the wild?

1500+ payload? That's pretty good. For a reg cab 2wd? Not really.... Another owner review of the ED.... A non fanboy ED review Not terrible mileage, but definitely a bit closer to reality. I'd say an average joe should get around 13 mpg at 70, assuming no goofy driving or hypermiling...... Crew cab 2wd. I have a full video that I'll try to link to later. Yep. People who drive this hard will get lower mpg. Thanks! Jeremiah
