RE: 1157 Style LED Interior Bulb Warm Lighting?

I believe a 1157 base would be 2 contact type bulb with one way connection as used auto run/brake use. A 1056 or 1057 same diameter base would be a single contact bulb used in the amber door light or a vehicles backup lights or some older RV lighting.

RE: Colors of trucks!

I have 3 white vehicles. Living in the southeast all my life and never owned a white vehicle until we bought our 2018 F350 tan interior. Parked in the Florida sun, it takes only a few minutes to be comfortable. 2019 YUKON white, 2019 Corvette white.

RE: Pin box

Have been real happy with the morryde on 2 different fifthwheels. You are going to hear about this one and that one. I had a chucking issue 2006 F250 with 2004 Sandpiper traveling on Ohio I-77 years back. Got the Morryde and it greatly reduced the discomfort with a smoother tow.

RE: Times Up, Told You So, DirecTV is Dead

I don't know why the moderators haven't closed this thread. It has turned into nothing but attacks against Bill.Satellite. Yes, I’m in Bills corner. Need to kick Tim mik to the curb.

RE: B&W Companion

I’ve never had any problems removing and re installing my companion. Are you over torquing the bolts? Depending on model, Old style draw down bolt 40 ftlbs, newer style 60 ftlbs. Old style u bolts are 80 ftlbs. I’ve read some users have ditched the nylock nuts and gone to conventional lock washers.

RE: Heading to Cades Cove. ?Route 28 Franklin to Lauada?

You would be 10 times happier and faster to head on up to Dillsboro and take 74.west.

RE: What axle do I have?

5 lug 3500 6 lug 5200-6000 8 lug 7000-8000 Ballpark way to know. 4400# axles are 6-bolt I've never ever seen a 4400 LB axle on an RV because it has the same 10" hubs/brakes as a 3500 axle. 12" drums on a 6,000 axle.

RE: Jacksonville, FL to Hiawassee, GA Route Ideas

I drive to Jacksonville from Blairsville every month. The routes described I-75- I-575-515 is the flattest and fastest route. My bride hates Atlanta traffic so I go a slower, longer less stressful route, I-96/I-16, US441 to Clayton then over the mountain on US76 through Hiawassee to Blairsville.

RE: Times Up, Told You So, DirecTV is Dead

We’ve had Verizon for 20+ years and got their “unlimited “ plan when it first came out many years ago. Unlimited high speed to 15GB per device per billing cycle then throttle back to 3g barely able to get email.

RE: Best route to go through Jacksonville, FL

After 10 am until, about 3pm straight through. West side has the Buckman Bridge and 11’ lanes that dance you all the way. The east side has all the yuppies who can’t drive in their lane on the way to the beach.

RE: Times Up, Told You So, DirecTV is Dead

Way2roll wrote. Or use a cellular hotspot and steam your content - if you have a decent signal. We used to live on top of a mountain with no hard wired internet. Decent plan on a hotspot allowed us to stream, work remote and handle anything a hard wired internet would do. Performance was far superior to Satellite. (we had Sat too at one point for comparison) We have Verizon unlimited on 3 devices. We do not stream anything and use up all 3 high speed allotment of 15gb each device by the 20th of each month. You must be dreaming.

RE: Times Up, Told You So, DirecTV is Dead

Case in point. We are building a new home in the Georgia mountains. We have 2 acres in a subdivision with underground utilities, no fiber or dsl. There is only 14 homes in the subdivision. Fiber is available at the entrance to our subdivision. Upon contacting the company that owns the fiber, their quote was $5,800 per home to make our homes satellite free. We will be on satellite for many more years.

RE: Real-life experience blocks to aid 6-point leveling system

While it’s unneeded to get level, I use the blocks under the pads to shorten leg extension that helps in limiting movement felt inside.

RE: GM 6.6 gas

The 10-speed was a joint dev effort between Ford and GM so not sure why Ford is in market with it sooner? The 8L90 8-speed has also been around so not sure why you can't get it in a truck? I have the 10L80 ten speed in our 2019 Yukon with 6.2. While I don’t pull too much with it, it returns a consistent 23 MPG expressway driving at 75 mph.

RE: Fall color prediction map

I’m building a house at the Georgia, North Carolina boarder. I’ll let you know how the map plays out. If we don’t get some rain along these predictions, the leaves will just turn lose and fall much like last year.

RE: New 5th Wheel Driver

If the shocks are original I would definitely replace them with Billstien 4600 or 5100 lifetime shocks, and get either a air ride hitch for the truck, or pinbox on the fifth wheel. The shocks on the FX4 are more than adequate.
