Anyone have any experience with these? Have been researching toy haulers my local dealer is selling these now. KZ rep even took some advice rep the dealer and made a new model with their ideas in mind. 4114. Looking hard at these and I see a few things I would change but am willing to consider others though. Just would like an independent opinion on the Venom line from someone who may have real experience. Thanks

RE: Improving Air Flow in Roof A/C vents.

I think it made a decent amount of improved air flow this morning. Easy fix. I also put some tape I the end vents to help divert airflow down the vents. And I cut the flow in the bathroom by half. It's always way cold in there anyway.

RE: Improving Air Flow in Roof A/C vents.

Hey I discovered mine has the same leaky areas. Guess I'll do a little taping in the morning.

RE: My sink is falling

Ahh didn't get to Lowes today. And didn't think of it when I was at Menards either. On the list for tomorrow I guess.

My sink is falling

Got home from a three hour drive and parked it in the home base spot. Got out to start putting things away and drying out from having to pack in the rain and my dw come in and says the sink is sagging. We have marble countertops and an under slung metal sink. Apparently the silicone lost its sticky and the thing retainer clips didn't help out much either. I think the marble sink covers are just too much weight for our rough roads. Guess I'll have to find a place to store them during travel. So now, the doors are off, shelf torn out, bottle jack installed and sink reglued into place. Just need to make a couple more retainer clips that are a little beefier than the originals. Should be good to go for next weeks trip to Rushmore and Wyoming. I hope.

RE: Is my butt saggy?

Try moving the hitch forward. Looks like it's pretty far back right now. Watch the clearance between truck bumper and trailer when doing so.

RE: G-Rated Tire Recommendations

Four new Sailun tire from simple tire.com shipped for $607. That was a month ago. Mounted them myself. I'm satisfied.

RE: Sailun s637 235/80/16 G rated tires

Just ordered a set from Simple Tire and mounted them myself. Really impressed so far.

RE: Colorado Campground - Beware of Cancellation Policy

I reserved two spots for three nights at Rafter J and they wanted everything up front with no refund for cancellation. About 65+ per night per spot. Very high traffic areas can get high prices and high cancellation fees. Someone will always fill the spot I guess.

RE: 2015 Chevy/GMC 2500 Diesel or Gas?

My 3500 srw just got up to 26.9 mpg empty in perfect conditions. Certainly not going to complain about that. Pulling it registers around 11 mpg. Just can't get over the fact that a half ton with all the bells and whilstles is more than my 3500 with full features. Nuts. Think I'm missing the sun roof and 20inch wheels. If your looking at a 2500, just go all the way to a one ton. Such a little jump and piece of mind. Think the difference with a 2015 2500 vs 3500 is 15300-17k pulling a fifth. never heard anyone complain about too much truck.

RE: 235/80/16 tires what let tires did you go with

Just mounted up four new Sailun S637 tires this morning on my camper. Went back to an st tire with these as my Yokohama LT tires were almost four years old. No sense in chancing it. I was impressed with the weight and my friend who drives otr for a living says they are a good buy. Everything I have researched says the same.

RE: Pull-out Bike Rack

When I had one I gutted the tray and then mounted a hitch on the frame. The whole rack is rated at 200lb. Tire being 80-90, and the rest of the rack and bumper probably another fifty. Not much weight capacity left for my stuff.

RE: old rig

I've run across two of my previous rv's. My first is used by someone who owns a small campground so it stays put. The other was a Cougar fifth that I ridded myself of after many repairs. The next owner did the same thing after a years ownership as well. I saw it at a camp out with the dealer club where we both bo business.

RE: Diesel Chevy truck with new Duramax engine

Does anyone know if the air filter housing out of a new one would fit in an 03? My fathers 03 dmax has the flat rectangular filter with very little capacity for dust collection. Couple that with the fact that it draws right out of the fender well and we change then constantly due to rural roads and dirty conditions. Changing out the mouth piece and upgrading the filter would certainly help us with a little over heating and short life of the filters.

RE: Aarrrrgggghhh!!! House hunting!!!!!!!!!-Updated

We just bought and moved a few months ago. Looking was a bit frustrating, yes but even more for me was the sloppy home inspector they new buyers hired to look at the house we sold. Strolled in smelling like an ash tray pointing out silly things that the buyers took as gospel and we changed. Even down to wanting the well pump replaced. I put my foot down on that one. It worked as it should and delivered cceptable water as backed by the county water test results. The things I fixed all had to be done by someone who could be called professional and supply a receipt. I'm pretty handy and that caught me off guard as well. To have to pay for something I could do myself in the same fashion... But they offered full price and it's all water beneath the bridge now.

RE: Which LT tires have you been happy with?

I got Yokohama tires on the trailer. Love them but as they are now three years old I am starting to look for some replacements.

RE: I still love my truck.

My father has an 03 duramax. Think he is finally up to 135000 miles. Needs some injectors and a rear fender. I reskinned the dually box last summer and it only took about two months to give it the kiss that assures it's his. Otherwise it runs fine. We only use it for work related use, pulling a flatbed with a dozer or mini excavator. He pulls the camper with a 12 duramax with 115000 ish miles. Still like new as he bought with nearly 100k on it but you wouldn't know it. For a time we had identical trucks as I had the exact same one in red and his is black.

RE: 2015 2500 duramax fuel mileage

I get 10-11 pulling. Although I usually am at 70 on the interstate as well. If I slow down I'm sure I'll see better. Empty the best I've seen is 23.5 on the meter. Only have 13.5k on it so maybe it not totally broke in yet. The older one is the first full year with regeneration and uses diesel to do it so the mileage sucks. Unfortunately that's the one that get daily use too. Overall I love the Duramax!
