RE: Low power?

He said 10/2 He shoudl be running 8/2 + Ground in the house or even 6/2 if the run is very long... I used smaller wire.. but also lower current. The OP did not say 10/2. That was a later poster. The OP never came back.

Same here. TL portal is the one I normally use.

RE: Rotten egg smell, again???

Maybe I'm an idiot but can't quite see how battery water level affects my water supply. It doesn’t. If you only get the smell when you run water then it has something to do with your water system. Or park water. See if it has odor coming out of the park faucet.

RE: Low power?

If those are true 50 amp extension cords, voltage drop should not be the problem on 30 amp power. Starting with 111 volts and dropping to 108 when you turn on the AC makes me think you have a supply source problem. Especially since it is ok with the generator. Make sure you have 120 vac at the outlet. And make sure the outlet wiring is good and the outlet contacts are not loose, worn, or corroded.

RE: Rotten egg smell, again???

Some who have clothes washer hookups but no washer have reported a bad water odor over time due to stagnant water in those water lines. Solved it by adding cutoff valves in the pipes near where they branch off from the main lines.

RE: Time for new tires already?

Seems that replacement tires of the exact same tire as the OEM last much longer than that same OEM tire. Lots of opinions on the web as to why. Our last several vehicles have all been purchased new. 3 or 4 different brand and size tires. And the above has proven true. Including Wranglers on a previous F350.

RE: Just Asking

Put it it there for the price you want and see what happens. All it takes is the right person at the right time. If it doesn’t sell, you haven’t lost anything. If it does sell, great, it’s over and done.

RE: Space Storms Destroy Elon Musk's Starlink Satellites

A little more than 1% of the total satellites affected and sounds like the kind of event Musk expected and planned for. Guess that is why it did not make more news when it actually happened.

RE: Both blinkers flash for right and left

Can you post a picture of the “rectangular rubber thingy”?

RE: Both blinkers flash for right and left

Probably going to require pulling both taillight assemblies and do wire tracing. Somewhere both sides are tied together. Where ever they tied the left taillight to the right taillight they likely also tied the left stoplight to the right stoplight.

RE: Both blinkers flash for right and left

Good info above about some differences in 7 pin wire color coding. If your clearance lights also flash then it is definitely a grounding issue.

RE: Both blinkers flash for right and left

I don’t see any possible way it could have ever worked correctly if the left turn signal wire is not connected to the truck. Did you check the wire colors at the taillights? I can’t imagine someone only ran one wire and jumpered the two lights. But then ????? I would certainly try to get the dealer to fix it under warranty. I am guessing no one checked the lights before pulling off the lot.

RE: Montrose, CO to Durango

The fact that truckers and thousands of RVers do it every year is a poor argument. If you or anyone with you has any aversion to heights, I would not recommend the section from Ouray to Durango. Beautiful drive, but it could be a harrowing trip. Narrow road with little to no shoulders, lack of guard rails, and long steep drop-offs and several mountain passes. From north of Ouray, 62 west to 145 south to Cortez to 160 east to Durango is a little longer, less thrilling, but still beautiful, option.

RE: Upgrade to 5th wheel

You need to look at your truck's payload capacity. And the unloaded pin weight plus about 20% -22% to get an approximate loaded pin weight. That pin weight vs your payload capacity is going to be your limiting factor.

RE: Worth repairing?

Probably broken welds or frame members at the front. You need to have someone experienced in frame repair evaluate it for you and get an estimate of repair costs. Then you can decide how to proceed.

RE: How many folks just want to gripe about EVs?

:B :B :B Human nature. People don't like change. Especially if it is forced on them.

I think they all have an accident exclusion.

RE: electrical

What is it you don’t have? 120 vac? 12 vdc? Both?

RE: RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Productions Ends in January

Locally diesel is 50% higher than reg gas. That takes the shine off owning a diesel unless one really is needed for towing. And most trucks are not used for towing.
