RE: Trailer Door Locks

We have the $159 lock from rvlock.com. It works well, but mount the remote keypad in a dry place. They don't like a bunch of water. Really nice not to carry keys when at the beach or water park.

RE: Transmission woes

I bought a 09 Dodge last year, and they said the trans had just been re-built, but they did a crappy job. I got 14 months, and 5K miles out of it. Just dropped $5400 for complete rebuild, and new Suncoast TC.

RE: Is it time to just give up the old truck?

Stay under 11K gross on the trailer, and get a set of Timbrens or air bags. Also get an exhaust brake, and a torque converter lock up switch.

RE: 5th wheel hitch position in the bed

You give the fifth wheel no leverage on the rear axle if the pin is in front of the axle. So you have more stability.

RE: Do a walk around at every stop!

Do a good walk around before you leave too.

RE: Holy Moly the new trucks are TALL

You can add an exhaust brake to your 1999, and a torque converter lock up switch. I had a 2001, but with a manual trans & exhaust brake. I bought the brake off EBay for $800 brand new. 3 hours to install.

RE: Windshield washers won't spray

Listen for the pump. No noise, check for voltage at pump. You hear noise, check pump for clog.

RE: How much trouble to convert 30 amp to 50 amp?

I would just put in a separate 20 amp cord for the second AC. I did this, and it works out great. I n the winter when I don't need the second AC I don't plug it in. And I can still use 30 AMP sites.

RE: 2012 Ram Exhaust/Engine brake question!

Keep the exhaust brake on all the time. It keeps the variable part from sooting up, and freezing up.

RE: Dodge Ram 2500 vs 3500...and SRW vs DRW

Unless you have a lot of children to fill the back seat of that Mega, get the DRW with 8ft bed.

RE: Filter for Converter

I called Parallax, and talked to an engineer there. He said 6 VAC on the output was normal for that unit, and suggested to replace the converter with a 6345 RU. That is what I think I will do. Thanks for the reply's. Happy Camping.

Filter for Converter

I have a 2003 Magnetec 6345 converter inour RV. I measured around 6 volts of AC voltage riding on the 12.8 DC voltage in the trailer. Is there a cheap, easy way to add filter caps to this converter, or would it be better to just replace it all together?

RE: Looking for a reliable diesel truck

An exhaust brake should be standard equipment for pulling heavy with any diesel engine PU. It can and will save you.

RE: 0-20 Weight Oil

0-20 can be synthetic or conventional. Check your owners manual for what it needs.
