What happened to all the posts

Is it me or are the number of posts declining here? Do I need to adjust my settings or is everyone doing something else? Thanks, Curly

RE: Seam sealant

Thanks very much!

Seam sealant

I have an older 5th wheel that needs to have the seams sealed along the outside of the fiberglass where the plastic or outside metal trim is attached. What is a good sealer to use where the factory sealer is now falling out or dissolving? Would Dicor lap sealant be a good choice or should I use something else? I want to keep the new seam as narrow as possible. Thanks, Curly

RE: Beef up (fish plate) ā€œIā€ beam frame

That doesn't say much for the manufacturers if they do "under spec" the frames and other components to save money,although it is much the same with auto manufacturers. Even if you think "you get with you pay for", that really doesn't mean anything anymore. Manufacturers will still use the cheapest **** they can get away with like putting lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig even though it is pretty. Curly

RE: 2020 Chevy 2500HD Gas

You can tell the difference on a long pull for sure. The standard six speed trans was a blessing but it is really good with the 4.10.

RE: 2020 Chevy 2500HD Gas

I did see the 6 speed but can't grasp why the 3.73 and not the 4.10. Love the 4.10 in old faithful and don't want to go backwards. The truck before this one had the 3.73 and was not fun towing with it. Thanks, Curly

2020 Chevy 2500HD Gas

Have been doing some research on new Chevy 2500HD gas trucks and have noticed the rear end ratio seems be 3.73 now, not 4.10, in most dealer inventory. I think I would still like the 4.10 unless there are reasons that I am not aware of with the new engine. Any thoughts? Thanks, Curly

RE: Tucson to Olympia, WA

I too, need a good way to get through California going to Florence, Oregon from Tucson. Not thrilled going through Vegas to Reno and up but what are the alternatives? Don't even want to think about going through LA with a 5th wheel. Has anyone tried I-40 towards Bakersfield then hitting I-5? Thanks, Curly

RE: Slight smell where the LP Gas cylinders are located normal?

Just went through the same thing and it is the regulator. Also did the hoses just to make sure due to the age of the unit. The cost was small compared to the damage it could do. Curly

RE: Wheel Bearing Repacking question

I think he is trying to get in your wallet. Bearing packs are usually good for the season and many more miles than that unless he has a bearing issue he is trying to have you pay for. Curly

RE: Tire Pressure Gauge

G.H. Meiser & Co., founded in 1906, has a long history of quality manufacturing in the tire gauge and accessory field. Known for their spot on precision and rugged construction, the Accu-Gage line of tire gauges is a standout in an often-unreliable field. All of our products come backed with our standard one year warranty, whether it be for replacement parts, or complete recalibration. I would look at these guys. I have a couple of their gauges and they are very good. They have some that go to 160 PSI which are very accurate at 80 PSI Curly

RE: Break Out Another Thousand....

Just ALL new hoses, water pump, and thermostat on the 2500HD gasser for $1,600.00. Went OEM hoses since they lasted 120,000 miles but gasp at the price. Curly

RE: High mile gas engine trucks

Good point, so what is considered "high miles" for a gas engine today? I realize there are several points where you need to add money to get to higher miles but I am not sure where those points are at this time. Thanks, Curly

High mile gas engine trucks

I would like to see who else still tows with higher mile gas engine trucks say over 100,000 miles. I have a Chevy 6.0 gas with 120,000 miles and am curious as to see who else is running with higher mile gas engines. Curly

RE: External TPMS recommendations?

TST saved me from trailer damage and a ruined tire. Had just purchased new tires and had a slow leak in the valve stem. During the trip I noticed the tire pressure going down on that one tire and by the time I got part way to my destination, I found a Discount Tire shop and they did find a bad valve stem. Saved me money and time finding out there was a leak before things blew up. Paid for itself at that point. Curly

RE: Replacing Tires on my GMC

I lost a Michelin LT on my truck last year. It was 5 years old and tore up the fender well of the truck when it blew. Had the 5th wheel attached and had to use a floor jack to remove the tire. Was against a guard rail 50 miles outside Yuma, Arizona when it blew. Of course it was on a Sunday and found a set of tires at Sears. I have only been getting 35,000 miles per set of Michelin tires on this truck. What are my options for next time? Thanks, Curly
