RE: Cleaning Question

Try doing the top from the roof. I did my cap off a ladder I had in the bed of the pickup, backed up to the face of the cap. I’m short or otherwise I could reach the whole thing from the ladder in the bed.

RE: Andersen Hitch issue

Super_Dave: do you have an Andersen Hitch? Yes, and what confused me was not just putting blocks under the front jacks so that they have their full travel length. i.e. over a foot of travel length to get off of the ball.

RE: Andersen Hitch issue

I’ve been confused by the problem that isn’t easily solved with blocks. What am I not understanding? I am in a very uneven site. The front was much lower so I used several blocks to minimize the front jack leg extension length.

RE: Creamy Crockpot Tortalini

Crockpot meals that require browning meat first never made sense to me but must work for some folks.

Barney, tell the IT brain truss that the system fails on Internet Explorer but works fine on Google Chrome. Observation: RV.net portal is blue and crashes Trailer Life portal is red and works just fine. Hmmm?

RE: Creamy Crockpot Tortalini

Steve, I did everything in one stock pot on the stove.

RE: Creamy Crockpot Tortalini

Added some heavy cream, super comfort food for sure.

Sausage stuffed large portobello mushrooms on the grill topped with some marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.

I make a low carb version of a PF Chang lettuce wrap that my wife and I both love. It can be made with either ground chicken or ground turkey. I frequently make it ahead of time so it just needs to be warmed when camping. The low carb tortillas are usually only 5 - 6 carbs, so, fajitas are a good one. Kabobs on the grill.

RE: Towing with Lowered Truck

twodownzero, his sarcasm went way over your head.

RE: Towing with Lowered Truck

While 1500's might have a decent tow capacity, they generally have a crappy payload capacity. If you are low now, you may be dragging ass with the trailer tongue weight. If everything else checks out okay, you might want air bags to keep you from throwing sparks at every dip in the road.

Rookie mistake

When the wife and I were preparing the trailer for this summer, my wife pointed out that the leveling system hydraulic reservoir was only about 1/2 full of where the fill line was. So, being the idiot that I am, I added a couple quarts of hydraulic fluid. Fast forward and now those 2 quarts are all over the inside of my battery compartment and the ground under the trailer. In my defense, I had just worked on the hydraulic steering on my boat and it was a closed loop system so the reservoir always stays at the same level. I've cleaned the mess up several times but ATF is like mice and just keeps reproducing. Anyway, I thought confession might be good for my soul and help keep someone else from making the same rookie mistake.

RE: Rancho 9000's or Bilsteins?

I had adjustable Rancho for years and got tired of crawling under the truck all the time to turn the knobs, which would frequently lock up. Went to Bilsteins last year and they provide a pretty good ride.

RE: The Redwood has landed.

Hooked up and ready for Summer

She’s all hooked up and ready to go to her Summer resting spot at the lake. Trailer goes this weekend and boat goes next trip, don’t have the stones to double tow. Gave her a bath and packed most of the essentials. Set up will be 3 months at a KOA a couple miles from my favorite lake. https://i.imgur.com/jPOlvORl.jpg

RE: Checking Truck For Level?

Parked on flat ground, I put an 8', 2x4 on the bed rail and a long level on the 2x4. The rake over 8' is about 2.5" when loaded.

RE: We don't need no stinkin 4X4 honey !

The price of one or two tows in 20 years is still better than the price and rough ride of a 4X4. Take a 1 ton + 4X4 and I only drive my truck when I have to.

RE: Forum Posting Problems

I've lost enough reply attempts now that I'm copying them to my clipboard before clicking on "Post message". Will try the other portal or at least book mark it for future reference.

RE: Checking Truck For Level?

Goal would be to evaluate whether pin weight put truck in rear end squat below level from empty, ass high position. I don't think that involves fender well clearances unless I'm not understanding how that pertains to truck being level when loaded.

Checking Truck For Level?

Is it safe to assume that putting a level on the truck bed rail when loaded would indicate how level the overall truck is riding?
