RE: New Jeep Gladiator TOAD

We tow either my 2020 Gladiator or my wife's 2022 Wrangler, using the Ready Brute Elite tow bar system, and a home-made version of CoolTech's wiring harness - no messing with the vehicles' CANbus system at all!

RE: Tire chains in Califdrnia

In my experience, the major roads in Ca go from R2 (2wd with chains, or 4WD with snow tires) direct to closed. I don't think I've ever seen an R3 (everything needs chains) situation. Had a CHP officer explain it as: if the weather is bad enough that you need to put chains on a 4WD with good snow tires then you need to stay home.

RE: dingy induced sway

Have you tried adding a "de-rattler" at each of the interfaces between hitch and receiver? There is some play at those joints and that can cause stability issues. The de-rattler will eliminate that play.

RE: Propane Tank Issues

But realistically you should be able to fill the tank, turn it on it's side, lean over and put your nose against the hole and take a sniff. If it's leaking you will know. Realistically, it's a bit of a project to turn the tank on it's side - it's installed pretty sturdily under the Class A motorhome...

RE: This net is dying!

Can you actually say "crabby snotty people" without getting a suspension or a total ban now a days? :h The way people are getting lately just about every thing offends someone. I agree we used to be able to get some good info,but I've noticed fewer new people on her and less older one posting like they used to. We were in Oregon last year, and stopped at a second-hand store. They had hoodies for sale: the men's hoodie says "Crabby Bastard" on the back and the women's hoodie says "Crabby witch (with a B)" on the back. The wife and I each bought one and we enjoy wearing them - especially around people who might get offended by them! (Interestingly - the forum software is fine with the men's one, but censored the women's one!)

RE: Why not jack trailer under the spring plates?

Dexter recommends trailers not be jacked up by the axle. I have done it many times and will continue. Have any of you looked at the jacking instructions for your truck. GM and Ford owner's manuals show placing the provided jack under the axle tube. I didn't check Ram's instructions. There is a world of difference between the axle tubes on a truck and the axle tube on a trailer...

RE: Winegard satellite antenna help

You can replace your old crank-up with a new automatic dish and get DirecTV HD - Winegard offers the Trav'ler dish, and RF Mogul offers a dish as well. RF Mogul seems to be the better option, but they are a bit more expensive than Winegard.

RE: Why not jack trailer under the spring plates?

I've never heard anyone say not to use the spring perch; on the contrary I've always heard to use the spring perch as opposed to using the axle tube itself.

RE: Class ‘A’ motor homes FORD chassis.

First of all - the warranty starts at the first retail sale of the complete vehicle, so either the Ford dealer is misinformed or something else is going on. Maybe it was only covered by a 1 year warranty?
