RE: Crockpot Recipes & Salad Recipes

Some stuff i do at home and will do when i take the crock pot camping. Easy tacos, chicken breasts , some chopped onions, 1/2 jar of salsa, and 1/2 pack taco seasonings. Cook on low all day , or high for half, shread the chicken. Pulled pork or chicken, just add some onions and BBQ sauce, same cook times, use a potato bun and some slaw. Add some more bbq before eating, the bbq looses flavor when cooked this way.

RE: Is this hitch wrong?

Who cares how you have been towing, you will need to turn the hitch over for the new truck. Set it up like the directions say. Remember to tighten it up good and check it before a long trip. Not knowing what your TT is, you may not need the wdh set that tight. I dont really need mine with the new truck but use it for the sway controll. I also had to ajust where the arms conected to the toung. But i also have a diffrent hitch. Good luck, do the measurements and set it up like you just got it.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

I dont have an extra fuel tank, but the new truck has a 38 gallon tank. Its way better being able to go further without stoping. Especially with a 9 yo in the truck with me. Between bathroom, meals and fuel it seems like we were stoping every hour and getting nowhere fast.

RE: How to avoid getting blown all over the road

What year is the ram? And specs? The trailer is larger. What are you putting in the hauler section? As some said it might be taking weight off the toung.

RE: Best stabilization upgrade(s)?

I dont have a long TT, but i do find that chocking both side of the rig helps a ton. You allready bought 2 new chocks, try using all 4.

RE: Help Ram 2500 6.4 gas vs diesel

I would look for a TT for now, make sure you like camping. One rental, may not be the best judge. I have never pulled a fith wheel but the TT when set ul properly are not that bad to pull at all. Maybe your experience was centered around the rental? You can always get something bigger later. I'm considering renting some different sizes. From what I can tell the things that I wasn't so happy with with the TT i tried seem to be different with a 5er so that's why I've been kind of leaning in that direction Well why not start woth the not likes first? No one can recomend something if they dont know what you want. I never rented a camper either. But they probably dont set the wdh perfectly. If at all. If its more room you need then maybe the 5 er will work. But for 2 adults and a kido, smaller might also work for now. It's all about what you expect and want vs whats needed. I will say , having a kid, that less might be better. Its hard to keep stuff orderly in the camper.

RE: Trailer Tongue Coupler Wear?

Yea, the cut off and re weld isnt that much, depends on the area, and who you get to do it. And yea i recently sold my 30 year old camper. My coupler and ball looked nothing like that. And it was well used by me and the people i got it from. Dosen't matter what it costs , it dosen't look safe. Unfortunately thats what you get into with old stuff, you fix it to make it safe or you dont and maybe suffer the consequences. They cut off the coupler ,not the tounge on the camper. If thats not mess up, then nothing is.

RE: EZ Pass with and without trailer

I found this article online: towing and ez pass For a standard hitch trailer, it appears that you can use the standard pass and the system will account for the proper number of axles and height as you go through. If you have a 5th wheel or motorhome, you want to get the towing pass because you get a toll discount. If you use the standard pass, you will not get that toll discount. That might just explain it. Lol.

RE: EZ Pass with and without trailer

In nj, they said only the one tag. It counts the axels. I have used it in ny and pa with no problems with 2 different axel campers.

RE: Trailer Tongue Coupler Wear?

Not something i have seen yet. Just replace them both and be done with it. Why take a chance.

RE: Ford as a tow vehicle

Look into mods, I think I read that that system can be bypassed. I had the same feelings with a 2012 gmc similler specs. Took a second before the computer registered you put the pedal to the floor. Lol. I got a 2500 chevey now. No problems, but they dont have to meet emissions standerds. I didnt have bucking and misfireing. Some other minor stuff contributed to the bad towing also, my p rated tires mostly. I had a lot of sidewall slop in the rear tires when towing.

RE: Forced out of your reservation

Sounds a bit fishy to me. Like the rv park got his freinds in there. I would definitely hold them accountable for what they did. Especially if i had taken off work on vacation, and now had it cancled for really no good reason. I can see if somthing happened, fire, tree fell, flood, but so someone else that wasnt booked allrady can go and camp, no way. I would be blasting that park everywhere I went. My time is as valuable as everyone elses. I think the park owner created the problem. Not anyones fault your large group can't get a site on short notice, plan ahead.

RE: Cybertruck supersized charging space...

Reis, this is by no means all inclusive, and the main US sources were shut down in the last 10-20 years, but it does cover some of the users and how they would pertain. rare earth And our production has fallen to near nothing. That is an interesting and comprehensive article. Me thinks investors will be investing in companies that can recycle some of this stuff from old electronics. I’m one of those evil EV drivers. I can tell you right now. As more people test drive these things it will get harder and harder to turn off the transition to EV’s. For many people driving needs they do pretty much everything better than an ICE. If the oil companies don’t find a way to shut down growth real quick there will be no turning off the tap. They’ll have to find another way to come up with the rare earth minerals, or use something else. :). Going to be an interesting decade. Like hydrogen? Lol. Its hard to say that the car is selling itself through enginuity when most state's are mandating ICE cars and trucks be discontinued in the near future. My fear is that this may lead to other consequences that are unseen, like what to do with all the batteries when they are used up. I can easily see this turning into a bigger environmental hazzard then the ICE vehicals. Im all for green stuff if it works and turns out to atually be green. So far for me , the jury is out on this one. And it has nothing to do with where the volts come from. What hazard, Bateries can be recycled https://americanmanganeseinc.com/ If thats true it would be good. Cant tell as its a press release from the compiny itself. I was talking about these articals https://www.nationalobserver.com/2021/01/21/opinion/electric-cars-have-dirty-little-recycling-problem-their-batteries But who knows, i thought i read that the technology use in the batteries are all diffrent across manafatures , so the are hard to recycle because there all diffrent and require diffrent chemicals. So they burn them to get something. If the other compony found a way around it , good. If not then it will be trouble. Its like the single stream recycling now. It costs money to do it, and most of it still goes to the landfill. But people feel good about themselves when they throw that dirty greasy pizza box in the bin. They dont release that its not recycleble.

Also check you batteries, they could just be going bad?

RE: 3/4 ton diesel vs. gas

The deisels will have more power. The gas one will do fine. I think anything newer would be good. Your truck is 10 years old. They have all come a long way since then.

RE: sell home or not to sell

Before you consider anything, think about whete you want to move to. This may have impact on what you do. Check the market to see avalibility. In NJ, you cant buy something if you wanted to. Homes are selling with , no inspections and 20 to 50 k over asking just from the online pictures. Just something to consider.
