RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

My wife has asked the same question: "Why can't WE make the chips here in the USA instead of relying on China?"

RE: New to RVs.....A Few Newbie Questions

Forgot to mention as it was said to me few years back that the heavier the RV usually translates into a better built unit. Thus it will ride better, stand up to long term use and better built quality overall (not always tho).

RE: New to RVs.....A Few Newbie Questions

SUMRX4 said the same thing I was going to say as well about attending the Hershey show. Do you have a floorpan in mind already? If so, look at those on factory websites and IF going to the Hershey show, call the mfr up of each brand/floorplan your interested in to see if it will be at the shoe. If not, then what dealer would have it that you could drive to see it within "X" mile radius. DON'T buy on BLING !!!!!! A lot of mfr's/dealers will load/dress them up w/ everything to get your attention and OUUUUUUU, AHHHHHHHHHH. Look at floor plans that meet your criteria and , "we can make it work" if it doesn't. As you've read on this forum, many folks are partial to their brand wether it be RV, truck, hitch etc. Most will agree too that anything over 15k total RV weight is DRW territory. Translated: over 3k in wet pin weight and 15k in overall weight or max weight of RV. Do you want gas or diesel? Diesel will net better pulling and mpg's but they can be $$$ to fix along w/ other factors. Look at gas stats. Will you be in a lot of hills or flatlands? Lastly, THANK YOU for your service to our country and helping the rest of us to be safe and enjoy the freedoms put in place by our forefathers.

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

All filters I use are OEM from Filter 1 out of NJ. Good prices and fast shipping. Believe they carry filter products for all 3 brands. Want to say, a few years back I recall the Dodge/Ram folks getting their filters from Gino's (??????) Garage. If not here, there was someplace that was a more Dodge/Ram specific retailer of products for them. Many liked this place. Anyone remember it?

RE: Interesting tow vehicle

My guess is that it has either a 350/351 or 454/460 cu in and by itself, no probs. With this set up, not so.

RE: Getting Confused on what can I tow

I think, if I wanted to know the tow limits on my vehicle (regardless of make) I'd contact the Manufacturer, (Chevy, Ford Dodge) or whatever, rather than asking someone who is trying to sell me an RV. Most RV salesmen will tell you that you can tow a Tank with a VW Beetle.:R Well weren't some tanks shaped liked Beetles?? LOL

RE: Great Tow Capacity - Bad Payload Capacity... Increase PL?

Bought a '15 F350 SRW, SB, CC, 4x4, 6.7 in late '14 thinking this would be my last truck and 'nuff truck for whatever we threw at it. Yes it was rated at 11,500 GVW and over 3,000 weight in back.......again thinking' No Problem Zeb"! Come early '17 we upgraded RV's and despite the 350's ratings/capacities, we were over on everything. We towed the entire '17 season w/o any problems, but nagging feeling in pit of my stomach that wouldn't go away knowing we were over things. Granted a few hundred pounds, but still over. Now in '18 we decided our summer/big trip was to FL in Aug in total height/heat of summer. The nagging feeling got a whole lot worse as tires were the weakest link. In short, ended up w/ '17 F350 DRW, CC, 4x4, 6.7 and no worries. DW said she feels more comfy when she drives it towing the RV compared to previous truck. In case your wondering: empty wt of RV....14,000, max wt.....16,000, pin when fully loaded.......3700, RV fully loaded.....15,980.

RE: 5th Weel vs. TT - Length Off Tow Rig

By maxed out are you talking about site length or maneuvering into the site? If it's site length, and you disconnect the truck, the trailer length is the trailer length. In some cases where the front of the trailer needs to be raised to be level when parked, you can get the truck bed under the front over hang. That doesn't happen often for me. Dang ! 2 for 2!!! I Agree as well!!! Our coach is 41' alone. Ironically, our "shorter" 4 place V-nose snowmobile trailer is the same overall length as the 5erm is hooked up to truck. There was 1x I had an issue backing into a site with our previous 5er which was 35' and shorter truck only because the camper opposite us didn't move his truck and instead simply folded his arms and-laced them on his hood and watched me. No problem w/ OAL of things tho.

RE: Tires and their pressures

You called the manufacturer of the tires and they told you the correct information. If you don't want to weigh your rig running your tires at the max inflation value on the tire will not hurt anything other than your kidneys from the rough ride. The door sticker only applies to the original tires that were on your truck. If you replace them with the exact same tires that door sticker will still apply. If you replace them with anything else go by the tire or the load/pressure table provided by that tire manufacturer. I agree with this as well.
