RE: Speeding in campgrounds

The roads are not sidewalks or playgrounds.

RE: Need your input

Not sure how Black Mountain compares to some of the Colorado passes. But we just recently came over a few high (10,000+) passes. We did not turn off the tow haul but did switch to manual transmission mode. By gearing down as we went down, the truck handled the down slope just fine. We did not start down in third gear but eventually got there. We also didn't turn on the hazard lights as the other bigger rigs were going through the same process. Black mountain is a 6% foot hill that is maybe 5k, doesnt even compare to mountains that are in CO.

RE: Rear tire pressure dually

Follow what is on the tires, Michelin had a reason for putting that on the tires. What is on the door is wrong if it is not for the brand and size tires you have on the truck.

RE: Towing with a new vehicle

The current wisdom on breaking in a new vehicle is read the owners manual.

RE: curb side tire run hotter

I mentioned it was about 2 pm and I was heading north bound so the sun was not on the curb side tires at that time. Otherwise the curb side always run about 10 deg hotter. I will increase them to 110 cold psi and see what that materializes. Does anyone know where there are some scales for side to side? The CAT scales I have used in the past only provided front, rear (drive) and trailer axles. Running tires over or under inflated will cause the tires to over heat which causes damage along with being overweight.

RE: 5th wheel popped out of hitch

No. We double checked it and the pin was in the hitch The hitch pin can be in the hitch and sitting on top of the jaws when you are high hitched. Were the jaws wrapped around the hitch?

RE: 5th wheel popped out of hitch

Did this happen shortly after you hooked up? If so, my guess is you high hitched, and the pin was never in the jaws of the hitch. X2

RE: Trailer sway

Get a tow vehicle that has the suspension system (3/4 or 1 ton, long wheel base) to control the trailer. If you do not have enough tow vehicle then 100 wdh and sway bars will not help.

RE: 2WD vs 4WD tow vehicle

4wd is not needed for towing an RV trailer. The tow vehicle would not have enough power to pull an RV trailer thru the terrain that 4wd is needed for. 4wd costs more, adds weight to the truck, reduces the weight of the trailer you can tow and stay within the GCWR. If not RVing it is good for mudding if you like driving in the mud.

RE: Commute too short for diesel?

I had a short drive of 5 miles to work and back for 10 years with mine and it never hurt it. Careful about expert wannabes personal opinions.

RE: Pulling a 5th wheel on level highway

I have always used overdrive without tow/haul mode for over 200k miles and never had a problem. Be careful about personal opinions. Poor driving can damage transmissions.

RE: Which diesel truck are easier to work on

RE: Texas best suplimental health ins

Which supplement do you want a,b,c,d,e,f,g. Each supplement offers different coverage. Each supplement has different insurance carriers with different prices. Go to the medicare web site and search for the supplement and insurance carrier you want. If you do not understand supplements then go to an insurance broker and tell them what you are looking for.

RE: Flat tire repair kit

Yes, doesnt work well with blow outs.

RE: 1/2 ton towable FW

It depends on what your tow vehicle is capable of handling (read the tow specs from the manufacturer) and the fifth wheel weights. The TV axle ratings will not tell you how heavy a fifth wheel you can tow.
