RE: cab and chasis with utility body re-classified for scales

I knew Kali was messed up but thats crazy. A personal pick up that is not being used to make money has to stop at a scale. I don't care what kind of bed is on it. NUTS!!

RE: Ordering new Ram and Northstar 12 STC

Get the factory air on the RAM. I have it, I haul heavy and I love it. This is exactly the one option on the RAM I've been struggling with. Perfect for trade in not having to remove aftermarket bags and stableloads when trading in next year, but no one seems to know how well it will handle a truck camper without the ability to add stableloads and sway bar. My 16 did great with the upper and lower stableloads only with a 5,000lb camper on, but this time I will have a super hitch and motorcycle hanging off the rear, so I'm expecting the meed for bags this time. I also have a super hitch and tow a trailer. My mammoth is not lite. I have quite a few miles hauling my heavy camper with this truck. It is the best truck I have ever had. You will love it. Trailer is 8.5 x 20.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Shut off valve installed. Took about 30 seconds. Even though I store my rig inside. It's getting cold here. Time to think about winterizing it. Looks pretty straight forward. 1 trip planned for Jan, and I for mar and 1 for april. It's hard to wait. Jan and mar trips are to warm weather.

RE: Host Mammoth, any tips for the build out?

Talking to Randall is important. He will keep you abreast of all the latest changes and options that are not listed. Also, just ask for something if you want it. They just might do it. My build is well documented on this forum. We are very happy with it. Really like the leather and the up graded sky light. I am very glad I put my own inverter, TV's, sound bar in. Good luck.

RE: From 5er to class A, why?

Once you get used to a big truck, it's really not that hard to find parking. I used to work downtown Detroit and parked the F250 there all the time. . first I don't care if you are comfortable driving a semi in downtown DC, San Juan, NYC, etc. I prefer something smaller my self. I am just pointing out to folks here to consider whether they will enjoy doing it if they haven't thought about that. I wouldn't enjoy it. bumpy I think your name should be grumpy. And for the record, Monster trucks are used in the entertainment industry, I know your old but try to keep up.

I ordered the upgraded escape hatch. It has a lot of features that we really like. I would not be without it.

RE: Where to fill air in dually rear wheels?

Except the FLY J in Rapid City, SD. I was told by management to leave along with 4 other RV's. They said the place was privately owned and the owner did not want RV's on the property. I asked if this was a change in policy for FLY J. He said no. Just this one. This employee actually drove a pick up out to my rig and the others to tell us to leave. I had just filled my tank at there pump about 20 minutes earlier. This happened in July of this year. I have had a FLY J RV card for over 20 years. As a life member of Good Sam I can charge fuel at the pump while getting 8 cents off the cash price of diesel. I go there a lot. You can get access to an air chuck at the semi islands. They may have an air chuck at the RV islands also. I have more experience with the semi islands.

RE: From 5er to class A, why?

I have never seen a monster truck pulling a FW. I think it would sit way to high to even hitch up. Also they are not street legal in my state. I have had 4MH and now have a FW. They both will work fine. You have to figure out how you travel. They both have good and bad. Figure out what is important to you and take the one that is better in those areas.

RE: Host Mammoth, any bad experiences?

Well, my LP alarm went off a few times and I didn't think it should. They sent me another one after I called them. problem solved. I had my awning out a few feet and it would not go back. Long story short, it was not getting power. I checked manual, this event was foreseen. I followed instructions. I pulled the 2 wire disconnects and hooked them to my truck battery with extra wire. Plus and minus, one way powers it out and other way powers it in. Simple. Host has told me twice to take it wherever I want and they will pay the bill. I don't trust my local RV place. I will do it myself. I just need to run a new power line to the switch. They have been very helpful. Have sent me pics and diagrams of electrical.

Just ordered my shut off valve for the shower.....

RE: Where to fill air in dually rear wheels?

The air at fly J is indeed in the semi truck fuel lanes. I would go thru there with my gas class A and fill with water. You will not have a problem with your truck in there.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Although Host does not supply a shower head with a shut off valve on their newer models, we bought a brass, nickel-plated shut off valve from Amazon for about $9. It took only a few minutes to install between the flex hose and the shower head. Our first Mammoth was factory-equipped by Host with a shut-off. We were surprised that the 2017 model wasn't so equipped. Regardless, it was a very good $9 investment...... Don't buy the one at Home Depot. If you don't use it for a few weeks, it will corrode internally and seize up. Bought the one on amazon that has a thumb lever and works great. Good to know, thanks.
