RE: 8 Speed Auto for HD trucks

That's exactly what I was hoping for when we buy in 2020! I have the ZF in my Challenger and it is a great trans.

RE: upgrade to LT tire on 2015 ecodiesel , which ones

I would say that if you want the performance of a truck tire, get a LR E.

RE: Brake controllers

It's like using brakes on anything; adjust them until their level of stopping strength suits your needs.

RE: 2014 Thor Tuscany Engine Confusion Question

And it's a Cummins - 6.7L ISBe to be exact.

RE: life of a rubber roof, without any damage

If it's someplace extremely hot and sunny, like Fl, the life can be as short as 15 years or so. Around here they easily go 30+ years.I'm not sure which is worse, PNW moss or Nevada sun. That pink mod we get might be the worst. Doesn't hurt anything but sure looks sissy!

RE: Fiber glass repair

Fill it and put your favorite sticker over it. Or a reflector!!

RE: Fixing My Water Heater

Yep, that's Qest tubing. You can still get fittings at some H/W stores and it's really pretty good stuff if you use said fittings or COPPER crimp bands. It got a bad name when they introduced aluminum crimp bands. Those would eventually stretch and cause a leak (in my case at 2:00 AM).

RE: refrigerator fan running all the time

A thermostat turns it on so if it needs to run, it does. You should be happy! Mine came on during our very first trip and then never again. I think it's goofed up.

RE: Room mates Peel and Stick tile

Careful with the solvents, I found out the hard way that they will remove the silkscreen or artwork (or what ever you call it!) from RV vinyl wall paper!

RE: Room mates Peel and Stick tile

Make sure the back-splash is absolutely clean and there is not a trace of grease or oil. The tiles don't stick quite as well to our vinyl wall paper as they do to anything else but it is doable.

RE: Clicking from electric trailer brakes while parked; Normal?

Some controllers do send a signal to see if the trailer is connected and that is normal for those brands. Unplug it when parked , I always do, mainly because my TT will also drain my truck battery if connected while parked. Its never an issue for a few hours but if I park overnight or longer, I unplug it . This is what it's doing. I would unplug when parked.

RE: freon

In the dash AC or the roof top? Dash can be done with gauges by someone who knows how to read them, roof not so easy.

RE: price on laminate installed

It's hard for an installer to know what they are going to run into with an RV so if you ask for a quote, they are going to pad it sufficiently to protect themselves.

RE: Insurance coverage on new fiver

It's pure BS. I bought our new TT last year and the coverage transferred automatically just as it has for decades. He's trying to score a buck.

RE: Changing differential gears

It looks like our next RAM 3500 SRW will have to have 3.42 diff (unless they change for 2020 with gen 5) so it is entirely possible I will have them changed out for 3.73 or even 4.10 within a couple of years. You are thinking of the old days with 3 speed automatics when you couldn't get a gear ratio that did what you wanted and the only way to make up for it was a deeper rear end at the sacrafice of MPG when running empty. With modern 6-10speed automatics, they are much better able to keep engine operating in it's ideal HP/Torque range. It's important to look at the overall gear ratio (between the crank shaft of the engine and the rubber on the road). To the OP: Take the new ratio and divide by the old ratio. That will give you a rough estimate of what percentage of pulling power increase you can expect. Speed up steep grades will still be limited by HP but if you are not making it up hills or struggling, it will do better relative to the change in ratio. I understand what your saying and I believe Ram's specs but if you talk to people who have gone from 3.42 SRW's and moved up to a dually with 4.10's, the driving experience is vastly improved even when not loaded. When loaded they're able to get off the line much better which is always a sore point with diesels. I'm hoping the fifth gens have an 8 speed trans to make the 3.42's more palatable (doubtful).

RE: Crazy Horse RV Park - Lake Havasu City

We stayed there one time. Unbelievable drunkenness and filth. Bathrooms covered in vomit and worse. Management wouldn't go near the hoards of revelers and the police told me they don't go in there unless is's extremely serious. There's a nice state park nearby that is much better.

RE: Norcold 1200 dead inside, flashing red light outside panel

I have no experience or affiliation with this company but they offer a 100% 120VAC compressor conversion for your fridge that seems like it would be a great way to go if you need a cooling unit (or even if you don't) JC Refridgeration

RE: 30 amp outlet

Nice work, a 30A receptacle is a nice luxury isn't it!

RE: Honda 2000i storage idea

You need to make the pics a max of 640X480 per forum guidelines.
