RE: Removing a B&W gooseneck from F-250

B&W has a slider companion that would work for you.

RE: Newbies

First question to ask: Do you have any used units for sale? Second question: do you have anything cheaper? If you haven’t done much or any camping, you may not like it and you sure don’t want to be upside down with long term payments on something you don’t like.

RE: How well does the RAM 2500 6.4 Hemi tow?

If your good on payload, you’ll be fine for such a short distance. I wouldn’t think elevation would be an issue either.

RE: Help a Newbie, question about gas vs. diesel

Belairbrian what speed do you tow at? My only gets that high on my best days.

RE: Tires

I put a set of BF Goodrich commercial t/a tires on mine. They seem like they will last ok, and traction seems good. They do seem louder than Michelins.

RE: 2013 GMC 1500 longevity?

Actually, I can’t remember the last time I had a vehicle that had less than 100,000 miles on it.

RE: 2013 GMC 1500 longevity?

RE: Break Out Another Thousand....

The best part of this thread is that I don’t feel so bad about spending for repairs on my truck, come to find out everyone does!

RE: Ford 7.3L gas power numbers

A lot can be learned by riding a 10 speed bike up a hill and playing with the “gears” your transmission and rear end work the same way as the front and rear gear set on a bike.

RE: Stranded/broke down

Doesn’t a pump in the tank greatly reduce or eliminate the chance of vapor lock? On my old Volkswagens, vapor lock is common if you don’t have everything running the way you should, but the pump is sucking fuel with very little inlet pressure to a pump that is bolted to a hot air cooled motor.

More overkill, I like more overkill!

RE: Break Out Another Thousand....

$3500 for a new rear end for my truck. Bearings went out while pulling trailer and ruined the housing. On vacation, so limited on shops and doing it myself wasn’t an option. Oh well. Cheaper than payments.

RE: Time to kill the Cat

I saw a roadside sniffer on my last trip. Real dilemma for me... push in the clutch and coast past or hammer down and fill it with smoke.... I chose to push the clutch in.

RE: Anyone Travel with bikes inside their TRailer?

I fold my dinette down like a bed and put them there. I have added fasteners and tie down points so they are secure.

RE: Wheel hub temps

Using a laser temp gun on chrome is a bad idea. Go to a mirror, point the laser at yourself in the mirror and it will give you your temperature, not the mirror’s temperature. Same with chrome, who knows what temperature it actually is. Flat black is best, better yet, just touch it with your hand.

RE: RV Toilet

Clearing up what you mean by releasing will help us understand your issue. Also, you should leave your black tank valve closed until your tank is full. If you are at a site with a sewer connection, don’t leave your black tank valve open. Use lots of water when flushing.

RE: Towing with GM 1 ton extended passenger van (Savana/Express)

Dadoffour, how does your 6.0 do compared to your previous 8.1?

RE: Reference post: Love my combo for towing

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could test drive a truck with your trailer in tow? I would love to tow my trailer with my 7.3 diesel and then hook onto it with a new 6.2 gas, just to compare. I would also really like to pull it with a V10, just to see. If I won the lottery, I would have to open a used truck dealership because I would want to try everything! The new diesels are all good on paper, but the older trucks interest me too, I’ve always wanted to try a 8.1L Chevy, I know it won’t pull as good as a new diesel, but how good is it? As for interior trim, you’ll have to ask my wife about that, she likes that kind of stuff, I couldn’t care less.

RE: Looking for a tow vehicle for boat

I understand the kid thing. Maybe a truck with a topper? 8.1L suburbans are going to be hard to find, but should be just the ticket if you find one.

RE: New Tow Vehicle

The ford zf6 standard’s reverse gear is also too tall. I don’t understand why, who is in such a hurry going in reverse? When I have my trailer on, I put it in 4 low with my hubs unlocked, so kind of a 2wd low then I can just let my clutch out and back up nice and slow.
