RE: Fresh water gate valve leak

Based on the enlarged phot I am thinking that a sealant was used between the fitting and tank. Looks almost like Dicor. That is a threaded connection between the white PVC and flange on the tank. Being white, the tank is probably polyethylene and not easy to repair with most sealants. My Grand Design has a 1 1/2" valve for dumping the fresh water.

RE: Thermal Glue Application

Can't help you so why not try. I have used J.B. Weld on many applications needing to attach metal pieces to each other. Good Luck

RE: Antifreeze in transmission 2010 Duramax??

ivbinconned, don't give up just yet. The issue of a failure of a transmission cooler in the radiator is a common problem for GM. The real issue how long did it go before you discovered the problem. In many cases you can simply replace the radiator, have the transmission flushed and the fluid replaced and you may be good to go. This is something you may want to consider before you just give up and purchase a transmission rebuild. Ultimately if the transmission has been toasted you can have a GM dealer replace the trans with a factory rebuild and you will get at 3 year 100k warranty to boot. Do your homework before you give up. You have lots of options! Why would he have a GM transmission placed in a Ram?

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Ed Orgeron is definitely in the hot seat and I don't think he will make it past the end of the season. Brutal schedule left and even if he beats the Tide and T&M his job is gone. Best player Boutte is out for the remaining game. Kentucky reminded me of the Tigers 2019 team. Excellent in all phases of the game. Efficient, tough, quick with both a running game and QB play like a well oiled machine. Sorry my Tigers lost but glad the Tide also lost.

Goodyear Wrangler Trail Runner LT275/65R20 has a very small leak. Aired to 75 PSI on September 15. As of today it is at 64 PSI. Took it to a dealer and they found the leak. Can still see the nail. Looks, for those old enough, like a paneling nail. Told me it could not be repaired and quickly offered to install a new one. Tire has less than 12,000 miles. See photo. It is inside the white circle. What is your opinion? It is my gut feeling that if I should replace it, I should replace both. https://photos.app.goo.gl/paR35UvBX3THxaUp7

RE: Nice looking small trailer rig

The Nest is no longer in production. It had a starting price of $45,000+

Endurance Tires

New camper has Westlake ST205/75R15 tires on it. Going to replace them with Endurance. While checking prices I came across ST225/75R15 Endurance for $15.00 each more tire. Would you use 225 vs. 205? Grand Junction Transcend 240ML UVW 6285 Hitch 598

RE: Towing New Trailer

when it comes time to replace tires on TV, go with LT "E" tires. Huge improvement on tow experience. The truck came with 20" LRE "E".

RE: Towing New Trailer

Brought it home yesterday and a 30 mile trip from dealer. Don't know pin weight but ordered a device that slips into truck receiver that has a gauge and gives you weight on ball Certainly different from 3/4 ton Duramax. I believe hitch needs a little adjustment because there was a tiny bit of up and down on when moving. I will order Bilstein shocks to replace OEM. RPM's is 2500 at 60 MPH. Equalizer 4-point hitch and I have always used 5th wheel hitches before so there is a learning curve. Thanks for the comments.

Towing New Trailer

We sold our 5th wheel and truck back last September because of health problems wife and I were having along with our Daschund becoming paralyzed. Our health is now better and we decided to buy a travel trailer. I can kick myself for selling the the Duramax but that is in the past. I have done the calculations and believe my numbers are correct but seeking confirmation. Truck is a 2020 Silverado 1500 2 wheel drive LTZ. 5.3L with 3.23 axle. ITC, 8-speed with tow package and tow haul. Scaled the truck weighs: Steer axle-2880 Drive axle-2260 for a total of 5140 GVWR-6900 GAWR front-3700 GAWR-rear-3800 Conventional trailer-9800 Max tongue weight-980 Tires are 275/60R20 LT's TT is a Grand Junction Transcend 240ML UVW-6265 Hitch-598 Length-29'9" I know this is close but will change with propane, hitch, battery, etc. I will replace the Chinese tires with Goodyear Assurance. Been to 3 dealers asking about WDH hitches. One recommends Blue Ox. Another Equalizer. Another a Fastway E2. Made in China so not an option. Seems the Equalizer is highly respected and many people use them. This being my first time pulling a travel trailer so what size weight distribution is your recommendation?

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

I am waiting to see how LSU QB position develops. Their starter Myles Brennan fell on a boat dock and shattered his left are. Rod and screws to hold it together. Brennan is a senior redshirt so he has next year and because of the injury he could have another year because the season has not started yet. Bags, do you have another Burrow at OSU we could use?:)

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Looks like OSU may have the steal of this decade provided he doesn't rescind his commitment. Quinn Ewer has decided to forgo his senior status and join the Buckeyes. Red shirt for sure and if he is as good as he sounds there may be some wanting a transfer. Perhaps LSU would like another one of the Buckeyes "castoffs"

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Glad to see you back on the forum Bags! What is your opinion of my Tigers this year? QB play is my greatest concern. Orgeron is on the hot seat this year and it will take a great effort from the Tigers for the fans to get that bitter taste of last season out of their mouths.
