RE: Am I over the Max 5fer length?

Although some states have the 40’ trailer, I don’t remember any one saying they were ever stopped for trailer length. Overall length yes, trailer length no. State, National, and local campgrounds can be a problem even at 35’+. There are no states with a 40’ max. 48’ is the shortest in some state with the majority set at 53’ max. Max Trailer Length

RE: Electric Chevy Silverado Debut

Looks like the not so famous Avalanche that lasted only a few years.

RE: Walmart has new auto battery maker

From what I read, Johnson Controls was acquired by a new company in 2019 called Clarios LLC.

RE: Roof AC Starts...Stops...Then Run Fine

If the unit fan is set to auto and is trying to overcome a 3-5 degree temp differential between ambient and thermostat setting, the unit will stop momentarily and change fan speeds

RE: Towing capacity

As a previous 2016 25WB Work and Play toy hauler owner, believe what others say. 2013 Chevy Silverado 5.3 v8 with 373 rear gear. Trailer advertised 6,600 empty. With blue ox hitch, and our gas golf cart, the Chevy strained in 4th gear to maintain 50-55 mph. Truck was squirrelly to drive at speed. The F 250 bought to replace the Chevy did a somewhat better job.

RE: PSA Dahlonega GA

Many of the small towns in Georgia are County Seats still maintaining their turn of the century square anchored by their Courthouse. They refuse to destroy their history to make a parking lot. Those wanting to visit should use something like Google earth to find a off grid parking area or visit without the camper.

RE: Do you use EKON OX BLOX Trailer Jack Blocks

Seems very expensive when a few 2x8 blocks do the job for chump change.

RE: Seneca Rocks, WV

We stayed in Medley WV at Just Plane Adventures. About $35 a night. They are about 35 minutes away from Seneca Rocks. Open flat field with 50 amp service, sewer and water. Just a few miles off US 48 four lane across the state. We even took an aerial tour of the area.

RE: Antifreeze in transmission 2010 Duramax??

The Ford GM joint venture.allison made the ford and Ram get better trannies and I see this a good deal for rv towing. chevman 100% agree. No that didn’t happen. The 10 speed was designed and tested by GM and Ford together. They are now the same exact transmission design, and GM recently put the Allison name on theirs. GM and Ford Joint Design.

RE: Sailun tires

I was concerned because I had put on a set of Sailuns this past spring. The Cardinal was in the barn with the slides out so it made it difficult to see much. Yesterday, I read the date code 3320, thinking oh **** but then I saw Made in China so I’m good.

RE: Whats wrong with this 5th Wheel Tow Vehicle?

The set up/body is ideal if it were not on an ancient truck.

RE: Place your bets now!

I understand GM is having a valve line problem on all V-8 gas engines equipped with active fuel management. Problems are a result of changing from 8 cylinder to 4 cylinder. I have installed a device on my 19 Corvette that prevents the active fuel management system changing to 4 cyl. mode.

RE: 2021 Dodge 3500 Diesel ??

I went to High School with Jerry Sherrod, founder of Sherrod conversions in Waycross. I’m not a fan of lifted vehicles or other custom items. Jerry started out customizing vans when it was really popular during the early 70’s. One doesn’t stay in business unless they have a good product.

RE: KOA Installing EV Chargers

Not surprising. Aside from EVs being towed behind motorhomes, Rivian and Tesla are ramping up to produce all-electric pickups in sizable quantities, and Ford and GM both have electric variants. There are even a few folks towing trailers with all-electric SUVs. From what I read, Tesla is not flat towable.

The Dulles museum is worth the trip just to see the Enola Gay.

RE: Jake Braking A 5er Down Long Steep Incline

I tow in tow mode and use cruise control all the time with the exhaust brake engaged. The OP has a 2019 F-350, I have a 2018 F-350, my exhaust brake has no auto, it’s either on or off.

RE: Damaged 5er hitch by backing too hard

The OP was right to allow the trailer to be raised by the hitch. What he failed to do is back up to the pin box and get out to check the height is correct. With my levelup system, the hitch height will be different if the trailer has been idle for several weeks.
