RE: Damaged 5er hitch by backing too hard

This story makes me real happy that I can control my front landing gear with my phone... I simply go to hitch height on my 6 point, get in the truck and get close.... then I raise or lower to my desired height... then I back under "gently" :B Show off!!!

RE: Additional fuel carrying capacity on pickup

I know floor plans very but all this about pee breaks make me wonder. This is an RV forum, right? What percentage AREN'T dragging a bathroom? Some of us are dragging a DW, who has other motives besides a bathroom (shopping). :-) Lyle When there are multiple fuel stop locations I give her the option and every time she chooses Love's Travel Centers. She always seems to find something new.

RE: Damaged 5er hitch by backing too hard

Back decades ago, my Dad had clip mounted to a magnet and a beaded chain like we used to turn on lights. Unhook, pull the truck out. Before adjust to level hang the chain so end is just above ground with magnet in same spot. Ready to hook up, put magnet back in place, work the jack until chain just touch ground. Unless 5th wheel is way down in front, no issues with lifting trailer, mash truck down less than half inch if at all. I don't know about pickups with air bags, but with trucks we sometimes have issues pulling out from under a trailer w/o dumping suspension. Unloading, the frame comes up faster than leveling valve can adjust. Top of bed could get ugly. That's a great method! If only after all these years I would remember to set that system up.

RE: Comfort Ride Slipper Spring system w/shocks

I was just reading about this product: Comfort Ride Slipper Spring system w/shocks , and thought it looked pretty cool. I think I may upgrade to 8,000 lb. axles next year and this looks like it would be a good suspension upgrade. But I don't think I've ever heard of them before. The upgraded system fits over the equalizer hanger and is bolted in place, which would might make it possible to be done at home. Has anyone every heard of, seen, or know of such a system on an actual trailer? I'm very interested in Pro's, Con's, assorted opinions, no matter how far afield they may wander. Hit me with them all!! TIA Howard If you want to "upgrade" this is what you should do. https://i.imgur.com/4DLzZICl.jpg

RE: Converting Honda generator to propane

I would like to convert my CUMMINS/Onan 220V Commercial 6500LP to Gas. It's VERY thirsty.

RE: Damaged 5er hitch by backing too hard

Sorry for your loss. ZERO reason to do the BIG ramp up scenario. I back close and me or my wife makes the final height adjustment and then I simply back up covering the brake pedal and latch with no pedal pressure. Not a fan of placing unneeded pressure on the landing gear. These are NOT Semi Trucks.

RE: Jake Braking A 5er Down Long Steep Incline

Auto mode is useless unless you are towing a lighter RV and smaller grades at least with RAM trucks. I also set my cruise control at a lower speed to maintain the actual speed I want. It varies depending on how steep the grade is. I also on steep grades select the gear that puts me up near the redline for best braking. I am glad I don't have the ability for the truck to apply my trailer brakes. I like controlling me descent with cruise and proper gear selection for the grade. I never use Auto mode, I have tried but found it useless for my large load.

RE: Jake Braking A 5er Down Long Steep Incline

I run cruise all the time but “I” manually control what gear I descend in. My trailer brakes are cool all the time.

RE: Additional fuel carrying capacity on pickup

“Stress of looking for fuel”. Now that’s down right funny, what no cell phone??? You have not driven the northern regions of British Columbia, northern Alberta, large areas of Alaska & Newfoundland where cell service does not exist have you? Nonsense. That is what his 5 gallon yellow can is for......... Once he upgrades his truck and has a larger OEM fuel tank, he will be loudly singing the praises of extra fuel. Until then, what he has is best. ;) Hey for ME it has been fine. As I have stated I do miss the 35 in my last DRW. I also have stated on a new truck it will have the 50. I have also stated IF I do any adding to my truck it will be a TITAN 55. Biggest thing I try to suggest is try what you have before THINKING adding capacity has to be done.

RE: Recall of 19/20 Ram Cummins 6.7 diesels

It seems like Ram wants to rid themselves of the Bosch 4.2 injection pump! Recall notice I bet it'll take years for ram to replace them. I am betting decades.

RE: Bought a second truck.

Nice truck... The one thing I couldn't understand is why Ford predominantly used 2 barrel carburetors in their trucks which made them real slugs. My 69 F100 Ranger 360 2 barrel was a DOG. Changed a couple things wa-la 390 plus 4 barrel was bad azz and got better fuel economy. Had the C6 BUILT and was amazing.

RE: MorRyde IS is finally happening

Sorry for your issues. All I can say is I have zero issues with both of my HydraStar Actuators. The one on my Boat trailer was always low on fluid with no visible leaks. One day I finally noticed a bit of fluid on the Vent area. Called and talked to them and within 15 minutes I had a tracking number on an overnight actuator with a return label. Mine is the only one I have ever heard of with that issue. Nice they were so responsive.

RE: MorRyde IS is finally happening

If you have "DELAY" in your braking with disk brakes you most likely have air in the brake lines!!! My RV and Boat Trailer both have the same HydraStar actuator the biggest they make, neither have any delay. With a good brake controller that is set properly the braking experience should be nearly seamless. There is virtually no pressure building as the lines are full. If they are not full as in air in system, YES there will be "delay". I had this delay issue rite from the factory. It's a simple job to bleed the brakes as it can be done by one person. Better with two as the revisor is not large on these pumps and you don't want to get low on fluid as then you will have more air in the system. I asked a fellow DRV friend about checking his actuator for fluid and he gave me a blank stare. Frequent checking and topping off is an item to have on the maintenance list.

You have not driven the northern regions of British Columbia, northern Alberta, large areas of Alaska & Newfoundland where cell service does not exist have you? NOPE and if I were to do so and were a responsible person for the best outcome of my journey I sure would map out the fuel locations before departing. OH I use my Satellite U connect to see fuel stations, just mentioned a cell phone as most have them. Kinda like planning for the next RV Park. I love this saying.

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

I agree... it is load limit, and if you exceed the load by a pound you should go to the next higher rating. BUT, my interpretation of Cummins 12v98's post is even if I were at or below the appropriate rating, he recommends adding 5 PSI. Just strikes me odd that he (and others) are so adamant about following the chart, but then decide on their own to only take it as a recommendation and create their own chart (in their mind). Just an observation, nothing more. Mike As I just mentioned I follow what I was taught by GY Tech Support!!! I can tell you with many thousands of miles I have always had perfectly even tread wear.

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

Over/under MAX has nothing to do with "PROPER" inflation. There is a reason for every tire there is a Load/Inflation chart. Weigh your axles and add 5psi to what the chart recommends. This is per GY Tech support for when a person wants to use the brain GOD has given you instead of blindly airing to MAX sidewall pressure. Im just curious.... if the chart is gospel, why go 5psi above what the chart recommends? Mike This is directly from GY Tech support. "When changing to a higher load range or wanting to have a better ride, better stopping traction and tread wear use the inflation chart and add 5psi". They said to weigh each tire if possible as one side can weigh more than the other. The 5psi I assume is to compensate for one side weighing more than the other as most can't weigh each tire. They said "use the heaviest tire to determine inflation on each axle".

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

If one really cares they should know what weight is actually on their tires. But most are fine not knowing and blindly inflate to MAX.
