RE: Jump Start Question

Most newish vehicles won't start, or even crank, when the voltage gets below a certain point. So basically it starts fine at 12.3 volts, but the computer says "No Way" at 12.2 volts. I'd be checking the alternator, and/or starter. What was the voltage when the truck wouldn't start? I'm sure it wasn't "stone cold dead", you did check the voltage didn't you? Actually, I didn't check the voltage. I didn't think the no load voltage said much about a battery---but maybe it does. Sure acted to me as though the computer just said not enough voltage and shut things down.

Jump Start Question

I am now on my third battery in our 2010 Dodge Ram 1500. On the two times I replaced the battery the symptom was a bit unusual. Turning the key would not even produce a relay click---stone cold dead. I tried on both occasions to jump start with a 'jumpit' with no luck. I even tried taking one battery terminal loose and starting with the jumpit alone, but no luck. (The jumpit was freshly recharged.) Has anyone had this experience? In the past I have seen battery failures much less sudden, getting at least a slow crank of the engine. I am mystified by this and would appreciate any clue. It seems that my carrying a jumpit in the truck bed is useless!

I have been getting an error each time I try to access the snowbirds sub forum. Is it still active or has it been shut down?

US Cellular?

Has anyone had experience with cell phone service for US Cellular? Particularly in the Yuma, Az. area? Tried to post this on the Snowbirds page, but it is currently out of commission!

RE: Tire Pressure Gauge

I wound up getting a Milton Industries Exelair digital dual head pressure gauge. It has a long shank that allows you to read it without stooping too closely and the handle swivels to give youthe best view. Seems to operate well. Time will tell. Thanks to all who offered advice.

Tire Pressure Gauge

After going through many inferior gauges, I have decided I need a good one---even if I have to spend a few dollars. Does anyone have experience with high quality gauges they are willing to share? Tnx.

RE: Hubodometer

After doing a bit more research, I have decided that they weren't meant for us smaller guys. You have to specify the make and model of the tire and look up which model to purchase. The info isn't rhat easy to find, but after doing the lookup I discovered that my Goodyear Endurance T205/75 R15's aren't on the list. Would include the link to the data, but I've forgotten where it is. Sorry!:S

I have been thinking of something to record the milage I put on my trailer tires. Just ran across something called a "hub odometer." Has anyone had experience with it---or any advice about other devices? Thanks.

RE: Towstar STR Tires?

Thanks folks! I've decided to go with the Goodyear Endurances.
