RE: CG's near Charlotte Motor Speedway

Why not stay at the track. Some campgrounds have full hook ups. Others it's dry camping. Prices weren't bad. Check out the Charlotte Motor Speedway website. Full hook ups are full. No genny and don't think the DW would not like that for 2-3 days..

CG's near Charlotte Motor Speedway

Any recommendations for CG's near the track, even those say within a 30 mile radius? State parks that will accommodate a 41' 5er?

GM outsold Ford??

Read something yesterday and not sure of others saw/read it as well, but it said that GM outsold Ford in truck sales for 2021. If true, that would dethrone Ford as the #1 seller of trucks 45+ years running. Truth or rumor?

RE: Electric Chevy Silverado Debut

Yup, towing range IMO will be reduced to peanuts on either brand. Again, IMO, useless. Charging? Well that's a debate all in itself, but while on last outing last fall, CG owner told us he's expanding and installing HD power to those sites so folks can charge their EV vehicles. Guess ya can't with standard power (I'm not an electrical expert by any means). He went onto say that he say one camper w/ a lil genny running to charge up his EV. Makes a lot os sense doesn't it???

RE: Exterior dash cam for rear view?

As much as I'm not 100% on board about having them in y semi, we have LYTEX/Drive Cams in our trucks w/ cams that face in/out of windshield. They are always on and record things instantly w/ sudden braking, stopping etc. Have heard it goes back 15-25 days or so. Not sure if they have anything exactly like what you want but may have to check w/ them to see. Otherwise, bgums suggestion on the GoPro maybe your only choice.

RE: Diesel anti-gel additive

Howes Diesel Treat Anti-gel, Hot Shot Secret Anti-Gel are the 2 I use here in CNY even tho the fuel is treated at place of purchase. I don't take any chances. In case you do gel up, 911 or Melt Down. Never have use the Melt Down, but that's what our shop gave us too use along w/ Diesel Thaw as a Anti-Gel (never used that one either). What ever brand you go with, watch your ratios. One thing to remember as well is that if a gel up product is used, it may not get to the filter where it's actually gelled up, so you'll end up having to replace the filter(s). So some would say "What's the sense in using it then?" which is true, but it will treat any fuel in tank to prevent it from gelling up in filter(s). Again, watch your ratios.

RE: Are chips coming available?

DW has said for quite sometime as to why we can't maker things here. Local Freighliner dealer parts guy told me a couple weeks ago that he had to tell a customer w/ a brand new 6 wheeler box truck w/ 8K miles that he has to wait some 20+ weeks for some module.

RE: 5th wheel purchase advise - Solitude or Jayco

If your not happy with the floorpans so far......keep looking. Don't fool yourselves into thinking/saying "We'll make it work", you won't be happy in the long run. Consider too where you'll be most of the time. By this I mean LR. If front LR, ya gotta go up/down steps all the time. In rear LR, you're on same level 99% of time for kit/fridge. Only time your really gonna go up is for bathroom/bed. If your older, could be a prob w/ front LR.

RE: Fifth Wheel Hitch What Kind

Personally, I too am a member of the B&W club and have to use a tire step to reach the hitch only cuz the truck is too dang tall and I'm too dang short! No chucking at all and just add a layer of white lithium grease on rubber bushing 1-2x/yr and that's it (besides greasing the zerk). Yes base is heavy and head is a little lighter, but it's made in the USA, multitude of adjustments. 18k Patriot.

RE: truck weight F350 diesel

FWIW, our old '15 F350 CC, 4x4, sb, 6.7 , SRW, w/ 50 gal Transferflow, diamond plate running boards came in at 8600# +/-. Really liked this truck, but new RV necessitated a DRW

RE: Recommended must have for 5th wheel

What tonnage truck do you have? Gas or diesel? Max weight of trailer? IMO, it's best we have this info to better inform you. I think tho, you may me asking about the 5er only, but if we have more info, we can better provide you w/ answers.

RE: Bought a second truck.

Good looking trucks posted and did anyone else note the placement of gas tank in that era of trucks? My sis and BIL bought a used F150 w/ 300 inline 6 and that thing was a great truck as it saw a lot use on their farm. Then they bought a relatives F250 w/ 351 and like the 150 was a great truck. MPG's were in the toilet, but ran great for many years.

RE: Seat Comfort

I've found over the years that leather seats are more comfy (IMO) than cloth. Never had massaging seats so cannot comment on them. Heated seats, yes and a must. All that being said, We had a '88 F250 Lariat w/ captains chairs (cloth) and loved them. Next was a '91 GMC 2500HD and we switched out the factory ones w/ cloth as that's what the pkg was and again found them to be quite comfy. Moving forward still, was a '97 Chevy K1500 w/ leather (don't recall if heated tho) and they were very comfy. At this point '03, we entered into the foray of the super/heavy duty market and got a '03 F250 Lariat w/ leather (heated) and found them to be quite comfy overall. Bought a '15 F350 XLT w/ cloth in late '14 and seats were ok overall. New RV in '17 forced us into the DRW arena, so got a '17 F350 DRW XLT w/ cloth, but added heat via aftermarket to them as we figured we'd have this truck for sometime now. Again, like the '15 they are ok, but I really don't have a prob being comfy on long trips. I've actually been more uncomfy not being able to place my elbows on anything really closer top the seat to rest. So asked here on got a couple suggestions for products to get and DID help a lot. That being said, again, IMO, if given a choice overall, would opt for leather as for some reason they just seem to be more comfy overall. Am only 5'7" and couple hundred pounds, plus being a semi driver, used to long seat rides anyways. Last 2 trucks were off the lot purchases. Kinda long winded, but that's my take on seats, but agree w/ many replies thus far that you'd be best to try all mfr seats to see what you like best. Side note here as well, as we did this back in '03 when we were looking for crew cabs to see which one we felt was the best fit/room (and car seat) for us. Compared Ford/GM and the Ford won.
