RE: RV wind deflectors do they work we will see

Okay, that makes a bit more sense since the Imperial gallon is about 20% larger than the US gallon. That translates to around 11 mpg. I can believe that. Nope. An imperial gallon is equal to 1.20095 U.S gallons so it is smaller. I don't know snot about imperial gallons. I did not spend much time in school, and it has been a long time. But if you think 1+ .2 is bigger than 1+0, there is a problem with education system. 1 + .2 is bigger than 1 + 0. 1 + .2 = 1.2 1 + 0 still = 1

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

I can not believe all of the nonsense on this post. I have a 2007 2500hd Duramax with a 7" to 9" Cognito lift, and Deaver springs. I tow a 28'6" Vortex trailer that weighs in at 12780 lbs, and a tongue weight of 1340lbs, resting on an Equalizer hitch with 1,400 lb bars. Been towing for 11 years and it is rock solid even in the wind. Does your 2500 GM product have rear coil springs ?? Those rear coil springs open up a whole different game played with suspension lifts or body lifts on rear coil suspensions. Best advice for a rookie with a lifted truck that nothing is known about the lift (body or suspension/play or work lifts) who say weights and specs are new needs to find out what type of lift and the lift mfg specs say.....especially a truck with rear coils. No, that is why I stated I have Deaver Springs on the Rear. Real leaf springs, no lifting blocks. Bilsteen 5100 shocks, HD heim Joint Tie-Rods.

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

lower the truck and all is good. Best suggestion yet. It still baffles me why anyone would purposely drastically raise the center of gravity of a vehicle, making the likelihood of it flipping during an evasive maneuver so much greater than a stock vehicle, endangering not only the occupants of the vehicle, but others around you. But if ya gotta look cool, ya gotta look cool (I guess). I'll tell you why. The Stock suspension and tires on the 07 were a joke for any minor off road travel. I don't know about you, but if I want to do hi G Evasive maneuvers, I will do them with my Sand Rail or my ZX12, or a sports car, not an 8,600 LB Truck.

RE: heavier trailer tires and fuel economy

It’s pretty well known fact that trucks that switch from lighter P tires to heavier LT tires always lose on mileage. Is it the heavier tire,the stiffness of the tire or tread pattern. Who knows. Rotating mass robbs horsepower.

RE: Batteries died...sheesh

So stopped by Costco and their Interstate battery replacement for the napa with slightly more RC was a whopping $90ea....ah, no Brainer! Bought two. Add a modest solar charging system. I would have purchased sio2 batteries. I hate to say it, but I used to ALWAYS read and respect your posts, until recently with your ALWAYS pushing the sio2 BATTS that 99.9% of people DO NOT need. Give it a rest. You know this poster more than likely doesn't need that expensive niche battery.

RE: Tires after over 2 years sitting

Those tires are 110 PSI max pressure.

RE: Towing a 40’ weekend warrior 4005 flt.

I’m looking at a used Chevrolet 3500 dually with an 8.1 in it. I would like to keep a diesel but my budget right now wouldn’t allow it and I don’t think my 2500 diesel would fit or be too much for me to convert it. Since you are going with an older truck, you will need a dually, and I do not think you will be happy with a Gas powered truck, Diesel would be preferred.

RE: Towing a 40’ weekend warrior 4005 flt.

2022 Crew Cab, Standard Bed 4WD, 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8 engine: Max GCWR = 29,700 Single, Dual 40,000 Max Conventional Trailering 20,000 Single, 20,000 Dual Max Payload 5,343 Single, 6,838 Dual GVWR 12,100 Single, 14,000 Dual Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating 7,250 Single, 10,500 Dual You DO NOT NEED A DUALLY to safely, comfortably, or any other matter tow that trailer!!!!!!!!!! Well it seems you are picking and choosing your numbers, a Diesel DRW will not have a 6,838# payload. 14,000 - 6,838 = 7,162 that is one stripped down gas DRW. I took those numbers directly from the GM website. I picked the heavier truck Crew Cab.

RE: No hot water flow, stopped up ?

I would not use CLR.to Caustic. There is a product called RYDLYME Biodegradable Descaler Great stuff. I service Steam generators, and Boilers, and this is the industry preference. Hi HTE, The Rydlyme looks to be some good stuff, wish I knew about it for work as we had to clean out steam and water cooking tanks. I did not see it rated on aluminum. I may have missed it, have you used it on 7072 aluminum which is what the Atwood water heater tanks are made from? Just checking. Thanks John It is used for commercial steam cleaning in food service, also.

RE: No hot water flow, stopped up ?

The rule of thumb is that if the alloy is designed for use in a water system (aluminum engine block, aluminum mold, etc.), the alloy should be compatible with the RYDLYME solution. Otherwise, it is recommended that the RYDLYME be diluted 50% or more with water when cleaning. I personally Dilute 70/30 when cleaning boilers. (70 water/ 30 Rydlyme). The reason for that is the procedure for descaling calls for the unit to brought up to temp., and if excessive foaming occurs, the heating element will literally explode. $900.00 element

RE: Whistling Truck

Check the trim around the front windshield. With my bug deflector on my truck it caused a whistle tapping noise at highway speed. I taped around window and outside, and filled slight gap with black caulk. No more noise.

RE: Where did you get THAT?

Link does not work: solid surface countertops Uh, which THAT? B^) Sunseeker Photo Album As I review our projects, I recall the trials and tribulations of each, yet the satisfaction of all things we now take for granted. Perhaps the most work went into the swivel seat mod, but we also put a lot of effort into the new solid surface countertops. They've both paid so much in dividends in the terms of usefulness and longevity. Speaking of which, the new pleated blinds came in, so I gotta get busy & get the factory rollers replaced! I'll post pics and the story, of course.
