RE: Heartland Vs Jayco

Hey Chris, we're looking at a 2017 MS 40 SKKB4 and a Heartland Landmark New Port...both at RV's for Less in Knoxville TN. 20K difference in price, with, of course, the MS being higher..My wife likes the bath and a half in the Heartland at this point,,,We've looked at other full time rigs, a lot of them very good,,,just doing all the research before we "pull the trigger", Adjuster at camper yesterday..hoping to find out settlement soon so that we can no what our options are..Seeing as how this clarity took place Thursday evening through Friday morning and some one from Progressive has touched base with me every day since I filed the claim last Friday,,,with ALL the claims going on at this time in WVa, I feel like Progressive has really been pro-active..Hoping to know something by Friday...Will report out when I find out something (Ron is one who told me about the place in Knoxville TN where I'm going to look at these two units...about a 2 hr. drive from our home) Jim Jim, if there is an option for a third AC on the Landmark, then you want that! We going through a bit of teething with the new Dometic AC units, and there is a TSB to fix them. It involves sealing extra unused mounting holes and drilling additional drain holes and checking on the data cable connection for the thermostat. Heartland has very good customer service and will even authorize the use of a mobile tech to repair things if the user pays his travel time. However to keep up with Ron you need the MS! Maybe you will still let me come to the face to face mini rally. Can we have it in Palm Springs or Arizona this coming winter? Chris I'm in!!!

RE: EZ lube hubs

Here's a video of the Easy Lube hubs using the spinning method while pumping grease. Link Also on another note I don't believe the EZ lube hubs were designed for marine applications, but the Bearing Buddies are for marine applications which apply a constant pressure to the lube inside the hub to counter the vacuum effect. Yes similar but different systems for sure. I thought he was pumping a bit fast.

RE: EZ lube hubs

^^^^^^We've had several discussions about the EZ Lube Hubs and I was just trying to keep this one from going down that path too soon. Sorry, I don't understand what you're talking about with spinning the wheel and the zerks coming out. The zerks can't spin, they are screwed into the axle and the wheels spin on the axle, so they can't unscrew. You can spin the wheel either way and the axle and zerk will not rotate. If they do there's something seriously wrong. Are you sure you've got the EZ Lube hubs? I am trying to wrap my brain around that comment. Mine are stationary.

RE: Heartland Vs Jayco

I would not hesitate to buy/order another DRV. I would make sure every single item that needs replacing or fixing gets done BEFORE it gets paid for and leaves the dealers lot! This comes from someone that has gone thru one year owning a DRV going thru the whole warranty process.

RE: Common issues with Dodge 6.7L or Ford 6.7

Open the hood, that should give you reason to consider ease of working on it if keeping past the factory warranty.

RE: Suggestions for Fiver Hitch

Thanks for all the replies! I definitely have some thinking to do, but leaning toward the B&W. I like the thought of having a gooseneck ball available if ever needed. If you don't have the 5er prep B&W sells a gooseneck kit that's easy to install.

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

Finally got rid of my old trusty 2002 F250 7.3L PSD for a 2016 Ram 2500 Laramie 4X4 CTD. Have not towed with it yet but am looking forward to a nice improvement according to what I have read on the forums and talking with my buddies. Has just about all the features possible including the air rear suspension. Have not quite figured that out yet. Barney http://i.imgur.com/hXHgCyAl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/gkI6tlTl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/LAdDyPZl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ntyqlIGl.jpg VERY NICE!!! I really like the rear air ride on our 3500 Dually. I keep it in alt ride height always. Sorry I have no advice on the 2500 system.

RE: 2019 Cummins in Ram: 2 significant & simultaneous milestones

"I can assure you someone just didn't wake up in the middle of the night and came up with the wild idea of putting the 6.7PSD into the F650/F750 trucks" They got tired of me pointing out that the F650/750's thru 2015 had a 6.7 Cummins backed up by an Allison trans in them.:B

RE: 2017 F350

I'm no fan of air bags. If one fails though, it's not the end of the world. Empty the air from the other one and continue on down the road until you can replace the broken one. Sure with no load that's probably doable but with half a leaf spring setup that's there to prevent axle wrap I doubt will support any serious load. More importantly on the 2017 Super Duty...:B I received some feedback a while back from one of the guys that's in Ford's We Own Work promotion video's and he stated the F350 SRW that he was shown will have a 3" receiver and squatting will be a figment of your imagination. The axle is magically not going to fall out. http://i.imgur.com/w3miTiMl.jpg "and squatting will be a figment of your imagination" You mean like this????? http://i.imgur.com/Xdf7JN4l.jpg

RE: 2017 F350

What I see at our winter resort is both Ram and Fords have sagging rear ends when they arrived to check in. chevman But when one of those air bags fail, the sagging will be the cause of being stranded on the side of the road. And yes they will fail! NOT true! If you let all the air out of any aftermarket bag will it keep you from traveling? NO Fish have you EVER hear of one of the RAM air bags failing? I am sure it has happened but I have never heard of it. They are just Firestone bags. Maybe Semi's should be concerned???

RE: Suggestions for Fiver Hitch

MeAgain will chime in. Use the factory puck system. If you don't have it add it. Demo picture frame adapter and a B&W Slider.

RE: 2016 Ram brake control

We use Heavy/Hydraulic. We have disc brakes on our fiver and she weighs just about 20,000 lbs. with our stuff. Brake controller works great. Not sure what ME AGAIN is talking about. No code issues or problems with my 16. Have you ever had to really hit the brakes? Not just slow down.

RE: 2017 F350

When the truck is squatted down below level in the rear with the load, you get wallowy steering, poor braking and headlights blinding oncoming traffic. If a truck is loaded under it's GVWR and RGAWR, the truck should not be squatting below level in the rear, if it's suspension has been properly spec'd by the manufacturer to carry it's full rated capacity. Therein lies the problem. They don't spec the springs to carry the full load properly (level). Hopefully you're right and Ford's new 450 pickup springs won't be sagging anymore. Knowing Ford, I'm not holding my breath. Kinda sorta what I was saying.

RE: 2017 F350

Incorrect but whatever... What always cracks me up on this forum is you are the most vocal and opinionated person here and yet have so little actual knowledge and theory. It's absolutely hysterical to read the drivel you post with such authority. Then it gets old and I don't read here for a while. Sure enough, when I come back, nothing has changed though. Why don't you post some more pics. I haven't seen your hitch in a while. LMAO... Tell me what I said is not true

RE: 50 Amp Plug at Home

If you are concerned isolate the batteries. I am plugged in 24/7 and add a small amount of water every couple months.

RE: 2016 Ram brake control

I would start out with HEAVY electric or HEAVY hydraulic then adjust from there. You can always drop to the light setting.

RE: 2017 F350

When a truck sits LEVEL with a big load the truck is doing what it's advertised to do. When the rear is BELOW level that is not so good. Too many people think they need to have the truck ride with the same stance loaded or unloaded. Then they drive around with the TV rear high and the RV nose high, they they complain about ride quality. The rear air ride in alt ride ht on the 3500 RAM's do ride nearly level loaded or un loaded.

RE: 2017 F350

It would be nice if Ford would put the heavier F450 cab/chassis rear springs on the F450 pickups. Then nobody would need to do anything to the rear of a new 450 pickup. Ford always puts too soft rear springs on their pickups, regardless of class or year. The cab/chassis trucks get the real beef. With the 17's redesigned springpack, you won't need to do anything to keep it level. I would certainly hope so. Every 450 I have seen towing a DRV has air bags. And more than one of them complained about a bouncy ride even with the bags. It was actually very funny the wife of a couple that pulled into DRV while we were there getting warranty work done told my wife we did not have enough truck and needed to get a F450 like they had. My wife just smiled.

Even in the 450 they want them to ride like a car.
