RE: Lowering TV tire pressures

JUST rolled into mesquite approx a 1000 miles trip with our 40 ft Landmark on the back of a 2015 Ram dUALLY .4000LB PIN truck is 4000 empty ,tires are Yokohama 245/75/17 e at 55psi.AVG speed 65-72mph,tires run cool and the ride is very nice,rec pressure at 65 is not nice. "Recommended pressure" is for FULL RAWR. Did you weigh your truck loaded and then use the weight/inflation chart for your rear tires?

RE: Lowering TV tire pressures

My 06 Ram 3500 4x4 DRW Cummins states 80psi all tires when LOADED. When EMPTY rears get 40psi and fronts 60psi. Front tires need 60psi because the engine weighs 1,000lbs. I keep fronts at 80psi because my BOSS V plow weights 1,000lbs. I will bet you are under inflating your fronts when not towing. FACT is I have more pin than most at 5,800# and I only add around 150# to my front axle. Mine fronts are aired 80 ALL the time. You are WAYYYYYYY overinflating the rear tires towing at 80psi. For FULL RAWR of 9,750# 65 psi is all that's needed. I am betting you are no where near that weight.

RE: Picked up a new 2019 LTZ 2500 Duramax this weekend

Congrats and that new truck.... I would take a '19 over a '20 year model any day just on the looks alone. And good choice on that garden tractor. BTW... This truck looks exactly like my dads truck. Holidays must be fun at yer place! OP, congrats on the nice truck. Stick with QUALITY.....B&W.

RE: Campsite Sanitation - Beware

Love these threads, there's always someone who thinks sanitation is no big deal because they haven't died yet. Not me man. I'd never eat a sammich in the porta potty! I was in my Construction trailer on a job site, my office at the front end had a window and below it was the SaniCan. The truck pulled up and the guy got out to start his process, after a bit I looked out to find him with a big smile on his face. Nothing new he truly seemed to be a happy person. Then I looked down, he had the poop sucker in one hand and then he placed a BIG ham sandwich in his mouth with the outer hand and took a BIG bite!!! Suckin, chompin and smilin. He was in Heaven.

RE: Campsite Sanitation - Beware

Turn on spigot for few seconds, connect hose run for a few seconds, connect to RV.

RE: Sealing underside edge of counter top

I used Elmers waterproof wood glue. Put it on my fingers and smeared it onto bare wood under edge of counter top working it in good. I let it dry then did a second coat. Tape off the mating surfaces and do as mentioned above. Best answer of them all!

RE: Replacing drum brakes ???

Do you recommend reusing your drums? If so, how many times? Do you get them turned? Does turning include resurfacing the magnet track? Might do brakes this spring. Not sure if I should do new drums, even though they look good. Seems like a set of drums with hubs and bearings costs as much or more than the brake sets. If you plan on keeping your RV swap too Disks!!!

RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

I think those extra 4 gears would make a big difference even if it didn't have more power. I think my 6.2 would benifit with two extra gears in between 2nd and 4th. I'm not going to buy a new one but I did it would have to be a 10 speed. Gasser probably, Diesel don't think so. Look at the GM 2500 VS RAM 355 DRW Ike test.

RE: MaxxFan (Smoke with Remote Control) Best For Ventilation?

"The Deluxe MaxxFan seems to be the only one out there with a built-in Rain Shield." Do NOT depend that the rain sensors will work!!! Install a Fantastic Breeze vent cover!

^^^^^When I get my new Powerstroke you might have to pull over to let me by on the long steep hills.:B Is your 17 "OLD" ??? Not really old just out dated and kinda slow.:) You may be disappointed. I test drove a 19 RAM AISIN. It didn’t feel any different than my measly 15.

RE: Lowering TV tire pressures

All’s I know is it is tiring loading rocks in my truck to bring it up to the other “MAX” sticker (for weight) every time I don’t have anything real to haul on my MAX psi tires... Signed MAX Hmmm. I prefer tossing reels in truck vs rocks. Much more useful, and I still get to haul something REEL useful!???????? Then locally in Washington State, you cans find a print version of "The Reel News" in some places too! The ONLY place to get reel news. Unlike on FOX MSNBC CNN etc.....

RE: Leveling Jack Pads

For heaves sake, I don't need to put my "Stabilizer Jacks" down so hard as to lift the rig off of the ground. A short 2X6 or a extra plastic leveler block is all I need. I'm not planning on keeping it stable during a earthquake. And, of the girlfriend and I are rocking it around a bit I don't care who cares. But, to each their own. Some of us have levelers, not stabilizers. Mine can easily lift the tires off the ground. Not recommended. I do use a stack of legos to shorten the legs, the shorter the less wobble. Please tell my why it's not recommended? Fact is there are places where the ground slopes side to side and one side of the tires are off the ground. Many times the tires are touching but barely touching, is that an issue? RV hooked to truck in pic and then leveled with the back 4 jacks, sat overnight that way looked the same in the am. Is that an issue? https://i.imgur.com/9xhtY4el.jpg

RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

^^^ I agree not many RVers are going to be maxing out the tow ratings of the new trucks but those who tow heavy 5vers will employ every pony under the hood of the new Ford climbing some mountain passes. I find the odd time towing in the mountains that my 2017 could use a few more ponies with only a 16000 lb rv. You would be crying towing my 23-25k load. :B

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

What is really stupid is to say no propane fire pits!

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

"so many places don’t allow wood fires but not allowing propane campfires is beyond ridiculous." That's a bunch of "Barbra Streisand".

RE: Eternabond vs Dicor

Eternabond done properly eliminates maintenance. Eliminating maintenance is my priority! Your call but adding Dicor along edges simply adds maintenance!

RE: Lowering TV tire pressures

Oh boy...... Cummins does not IMHO get 100k miles from tire because he JUST follows inflation tables. Does it help. Sure it does! What gets him those miles, is he appears to do mostly highway miles. THAT is the major key. If he did City miles like I do, getting 60k miles is a treat! As each time I stop and start, turn a corner, my tires are skidding, spinning etc. Yeah my butt can not tell, the skidding etc is microscopic, but it is happening. Does it help to follow the charts? You bet it does! It's not over 50% of what miles you will get. Probably less than 30-40%. Marty This is true but it DOES help a BUNCH to have proper inflation. Most people over inflate their rears and under inflate the fronts.
