RE: Short Beds w/out Sliding Hitch

I have a short bed GMC with a patriot slider. The dealer who installed it set as far back as it would go. The pin box will hit the tailgate when the hitch is slid back: Gary Does your pin box clear the bed sides when you come close to a 90 degree turn? I have plenty of clearance between the pin box and the sides of the bed, I can turn the truck to 90 degrees. When the hitch was installed the dealer set it as far back as it would go, the pivot point of the hitch was 3" behind the axle. Since the picture was taken I have adjusted the hitch to be centered over the axle, the pin box will clear the tailgate on level ground, but not by much. Gary

I will have to lower the tailgate to use the slider. Gary

RE: 5th wheel wiring

My rig has a 7 pin rv connector in the box, the male connector on the in box harness has corroded pins and lost my running light power in both sockets (bumper and box). Anybody know of a replacement MALE socket that could be spliced onto the harness? Found a number of female socket splice kits, but can't locate a male on If I understand you correctly you have a 7 pin plug inside the bed, and that plug as well as the bumper mounted one have lost running light power. I would check the T connector that was added to the back of the bumper plug to run the wires up to the bed mounted plug. Gary

RE: 100% Gasoline vs 10% Ethanol

And if you don't believe the computer can make the adjustments, you have not kept up with modern auto technology. It is not a "belief", I KNOW that the computers can NOT adjust for EVERYTHING. Presence or absence of ethanol is one of those things. Not that it would not be possible but it isn't worth the additional cost. And what happens a few years from now it the ethanol is replaced with a different additive ??? Almost every vehicle calculates alcohol percentage. The PCM uses the O2 sensors and the evap system to calculate the alcohol percentage every time fuel is added to the tank. This is one of the data points used to set fuel trim. Octane is calculated using the knock sensors and engine load, and timing is adjusted as needed. Gary
