RE: Need New shocks.... opinions please!

I've got Bilsteins on my Corvette and Monroes on my truck. They're just shocks, I've never felt that much difference after replacing shocks. I suppose I just don't wear them out, I just change them after 60k miles when I get the next set of tires or brakes. My Honda struts seem to go forever.

RE: Placement of motorcycle for towing

Use the built in tie downs. Strap down a wheel shock in the middle on a rubber mat. Then park the bike in the chock and strap down the bike. Even room for my rollout generator. https://g4.img-dpreview.com/BE09325E11CD4D749B3E9F7D5E6EC479.jpg

RE: Ramp door patio DIY. Whose done it?

If you want it quick and simple, just use a couple of ratchet straps and prop the tailgate into a patio. Didn't cost you a cent. No modifications, just hook them up. A fellow camper purchased a toy hauler similar to mine. His had a dedicated convertible tailgate with railing and some type of cable system. Total PITB to get all that gingerbread out of the way to get his bike in and out. For me, just hook up a couple of ratchet straps and sit out the lawn chairs. Just don't drink too much and fall off because there is no railing. OTOH, I've only used my ramp for that once. I usually get my outdoor rug, set up my table and grill, the lawn chairs, turn on the stereo, good to go. And I don't worry about falling off my ramp.

RE: 1/2 ton towing a 5th wheel

If you're within weight limits, it should work. Be prepared to get 5 mpg when towing. Keep it under 65.

glad it was fixed

RE: Bought a new torque t285, Ram 3500

Sounds like a nice rig. I would only caution that I would never count on the dealer to fix anything and would be prepared to fix it myself or look to reputable repair sources. In the case of the radio, take it to the local car stereo shop and pay out of pocket. Certainly give the dealer an opportunity but don't be surprised if they fail. Your truck should have no trouble pulling the trailer.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

a great convenience for sure. I have an extra 40 gallons.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

Funny story. I purchased my Duramax and it has 60 gallon tank in the bed (maybe really 40 + 24 factory). Anyway, my old hauler was a '99 Chevy 2500. When towing with '99 we'd go 125 miles and have to fill it. The diesel goes much further, even at 10mpg towing, I can perhaps make conservatively 650 - 750 miles. I had filled the truck to the max months before the virus. But my campout was rained out. Then virus came and I must've gone 18 months on that tank. The Duramax isn't my daily driver, or even my 3rd vehicle to drive. But when raining, I'd take it out.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

All this about being cheap. I purchased my '04 about 10 years ago for $17k. Hitch included. I've got about 75k miles on it. Usually make a couple of big trips a year with Toy Hauler and a couple of motorcycle campout/rallies. I'd like to try some winter trips maybe for an extended time.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

I travel extensively in Az Wy and Utah and it's mostly Rams and Fords in the areas I visit. Chebbys are an east coast thing?? Yeah, you being in Az and calling out "Chebbys" pretty much says where you visit. I think I understand where you're coming from and why you aren't a "Chebby" fan.

RE: Ford as a tow vehicle

wow. I'd check out what KD sez (above). Hopefully you can defeat that cylinder de-activation when towing? I wouldn't tow 13k with a half ton, perhaps it's ok now?

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

I see all of this on the forum with Dodge and Ford. When I go camping, Duramax seem to be the real deal. Yeah, Chevys will Nickle and Dime you but don't blow up, kill the tranny, rust prematurely or beat you to death. Seems like the Duramax just keep going, have the best seats, a comfortable ride and won't screw you with warranty or even out of warranty repairs. I guess that's why I see more of them at campgrounds. I suppose everyone has favorites. How long have you worked at a Chevy dealership? I've only taken my truck to Chevy once and that was for the dash replacement (as I said earlier).

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

Full time RV parks you will see RAM's and GM's and Ford's behind them. Independently owned RV/HotShotters, RAM simply dominates that market. I made that point earlier. Fords for fleet, Dodge for self employed and DMax for RVers.
