RE: Towing regulations

So if you don’t get caught and cited, or the chances are low, it’s ok to violate another state’s laws? In a word, yup.

RE: Single or Double Axle?

All this "ST tires are junk and LT tires are the shiznit" talk goes 100% out the window as soon as you step down from 16" rims to anything smaller...because there basically are not any LT tires with the load ratings needed for those rim sizes. Agreed, this is mostly an RVeeer thing and some boaters. Those that use trailers as tools and not recreational items are like the honey badger. They don't give a ___. If it makes the ST tire crowd feel better, we beat the living snot out of 16" ST tires on our deckover trailers. Aside from road/jobsite hazards I can't recall any of those tires coming apart without some help form a piece of rebar or similar.

RE: 2020 GMC/Chevrolet Diesel Engine

So, not gonna go research every new 1/2 ton because I could give a rats arse, but cmon HD....you said “many/most” 1/2 tons don’t have 4lo now. Yes GM is offering 1/2 ton trucks that do and don’t have 4lo. Are there more, or are you just blowing out of proportion something that personally irritates you. What do you think the 2019 split between 4lo and awd only is? THAT was Fish’s point. Gd... Are you dissing me? I'm confused... LOL :B Nope, HD and the no lo range conspiracy! Cheers!

RE: Tires - 2013 3500HD Denali

I would suggest the same tires as the ones suggested in the other 1,234 tire threads. Those seem to work best. I think you're great Grit! Thanks to everyone for the suggestions; I am in Canada so sometimes its harder to get options for tires...hence the contribution to the 1,234 other threads.... I guess 1,235 now Grit! Sorry, you should get Coopers, Toyota, Firstones, Goodyear’s, Nittos, Hankooks, Generals, Pro Comps, Mickeys, Cepeks, Patriots, Buckshots or Swampers. Just don’t get Michelin’s...

RE: My F250 finally bit me in the bu##

Lol. No AC... What some of y’all have to remember, is some of us talk vehicle prices from the standpoint of a person who is fiscally responsible, financially stable and also able to get the best pricing on a vehicle (TV, loaf of bread, etc...). BUT $75k is not out of line for someone who’s not down with all that stuff above that I just said. Take your moderately equipped diesel truck that “we” say can be had for $50k. Round numbers. Obviously that’s $10k or more off the sticker. Now go buy a new car like a lot of consumers....because, even the janitor is entitled to a new diesel truck in our society, right? $60 k sticker price $3000 dealer add on sucker “stuff” $6k tax $2k In gotta have accessories $5-10k interest, cost of financing. Now you got $75k into a truck, not even considering the first tank of fuel! The dumb people WILL pay $75k for a $50-55k truck, or MORE all day long...... In dumbville, $75k only gets you an XLT. If you’re the head janitor and you gotta have the King Ranch, you get to tell the story about your $100k truck! Why do you think the used prices are so jacked on trucks? Partly becisse they’re popular and the economy is good, but a good part of it is all folks who spend waaay more than they should and then when the fuel bills start eating a hole in their wallet, they have to sell it either for too much money or upside down.

RE: Pikes Peak

^Agree with above. You would make it back down in 1 piece, but 12mi of switchbacks and up to 10-11% grade, it will be far more enjoyable bobtail.

RE: Walmart / Generator???

After driving all day a cheap RV park along the hwy gives me power, internet and a hot shower. I hope to never stop at a wallmart or truck stop for the few bucks I have no worries or need to carry my generator.Now that I'm retired I'm not in a hurry and stop early enough in the day to utilize a cheap RV park as well, besides they need the money. I travel of a summer and enjoy A/C and the quite. I usually only plug in. I can understand people who just need a few hours of sleep using Wallyworld, box stores, rest areas, truck stops. I agree with Grit dog on a lot of small towns around here will have a nice quiet area for a overnight some even for free or a minimal charge usually a 3 day limit. Granted, we don’t travel a lot compared to most of the folks on here. We’re not retireded yet, kids in school still. But we wally dock, rest area, city campground, boondock, NF campground, friends driveway or $50/night rv Park. Depends on the day, the trip and the situation. Fwiw I’d camp in the hotel parking lot for kids hockey and soccer tournerys if the wife would let me. But them kids smell way too bad too many times a day at those events to make the navy camper shower a great option! Lol

RE: Trailer leaning to the one side?

^ Is it 1/4" or 1". Visibly sagging to one side would annoy me enough that I might shim one side up. The real question is how does it tow? Presume you've put some miles on it. Do you actually notice an issue towing or is it just a visual thing? Could always stick the mother in law in the camper and have her sit on the high side!

RE: Temperature gun for brakes and bearings?

I ran out a bearing last month that looked like frosty the snowman. An IR gun would have told me it was cold!

RE: Finally......a good way to carry extra gas (mod)!

I sit on the gas tank on my dirt bike? Maybe I should re think my hobbies? Or maybe should get an electric car to reduce that risk in my life altogether, but I’ve seen batteries explode, what to do, quit my job because that’s pretty risky (not even considering the 1000times I’ve had cans of gasoline in the truck bed), job itself has a greater chance of punching my ticket than any gas can strapped to the camper 4’ off the ground. What about folks that carry their generators on a front or back hitch? OMFG that’s like a rolling ground missle! And that kids is how ridiculous this thread has become.....

RE: 2020 GMC/Chevrolet Diesel Engine

Oh, and who the f cares anyway? Y’all that are squalling about it have HD trucks anyway. Is it a good decision by GM? Idfk. And since I’m not part owner of GM why would I care? Yes there’s plenty of us that use trucks like trucks and plenty that use them as luxury cars. And some that do both. GM is catering to the golf course crowd with things like no 4lo and that stupid Transformer tailgate. They also have a 445hp Diesel dually that’ll pull as big a house as any light truck. Having choices is great !

RE: What should the PSI be in the trailer?

"Others will tell you to weigh each axle every day" Please SHOW us where someone has said EVERY day to weigh. Pretty sure it was a bit tongue in cheek in response to some of the inane “procedures” that we read about on here.

RE: What should the PSI be in the trailer?

I have a trailer which has Sailun G rated tires. The maximum PSI of air is listed as 110 PSI. I was carrying 90 PSI but recently was told that the maximum PSI, that is 110 PSI is the amount of air I need to carry. Which is the amount I should have in the tires? Look on the side of the tire. The max PSI number is on the side. I run the max psi when I am towing and then run 65 non towing. You let air out of your trailer tires when it’s parked? Lol

RE: Disk Brake Pads With Heat Cracking

What other conditions would cause a brake lining to go missing besides a defective bond between the pad and plate ? I sure haven’t seen it all, but have driven, managed and repaired all types of vehicles and equipment including countless light trucks that I’m certain seen more abuse than a (seemingly) knowledgeable and responsible person would impose on their truck. Read Jeff’s other posts, he’s mechanically inclined. I cannot believe it’s anything other than a bad brake pad and the likely hood of it happening again is somewhere close to getting attacked by a polar bear and a regular bear at the same time!

RE: 2020 GMC/Chevrolet Diesel Engine

Grit, Ever launch a boat at Renton into.lake Washington. Iirc from teen years last I was down their. 15-18%' Kirkland ramp is half. PITA if launching a float off boat, like some ski boats, or centerboard style sailboats as we had. Shilshoal is pretty steep too. last I looked, boats are RV use! Just something to think about. I's just messing with you. The coastal PNW area has a lot of grades that are no joke. Yes we dump the boat in at Coulon park in Renton.
