RE: 6.6 GM. Gas

Going to have to get me one of these fancy new gas rigs. :E My Duramax diesel can't even come close to those numbers pulling the same or less weight trailer!! :B

RE: Gas Engine - Fill It Up

I don't make it as complex as some of you on here. #1. When my gauge is between E and 1/4 I look for fuel. #2. I pull into a town and see where most of the fuel stations are located at on my GPS. #3. I drive down the street and if I see fuel for a reasonable price and an open pump that I can get in to, I pull in and fuel up. If not; I move on till I find a #3 that works. #4. I continue on down the road until I need to start over at #1 again.

RE: RVs over 10 years old are valueless

If I owned an RV park I would let any year rig in. It seems like the seniors are always complaining and causing problems so I would limit my campground to the 65 and under crowd. That way I could keep out all of those senior complainer Darrin's and Karen's. You know how they are! Yep, that's how I'd do it! ;)

RE: Recall of 19/20 Ram Cummins 6.7 diesels

What a shame that a long respected company like Bosch turns into a company like this. Bosch is turning into Sears or Kmart. Sad, just sad.

RE: Running lights on cars

It seems I have found more nonsense than common sense in my post. The idea that on sunny day the lights would make a difference maybe not so much but on the gray day in a misty rain near dusk they definitely could save many lives and do. All GM products have had them for years but the other American vehicles don't it seems. I really can't believe some of the reply's here as being nothing short of nonsensical. Interesting. So anybody with an opinion that does not align with yours is "nonsense and nonsensical?" I bet you have a lot of friends. :R

RE: Door Switch?

A BCM or Body Control Module is a computer that controls the switches and relays and that kind of stuff in your truck. Weird things can happen when these go bad. Check the door switch out and if that checks out ok then the BCM would be where I would go. Good luck.

RE: Door Switch?

Could be a few things but I think at the top of the list a BCM.

RE: giving it up

I'm sorry to hear this Terry but I understand. My time is coming very quickly. I figure 10 to 15 years on the outside at best. In any event I have enjoyed your posts over the years and you have given a lot of new comers many great tips. I wish you and yours the best in your new adventure.

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

RE: Check you cooling stack!

I have the same LBZ and have overheating problems too. I suspected a plugged rad, so I had it removed and at that time had the crud blown / hosed out of the rest of the stuff in front of the rad. A multitude of bugs and other debris came out. I didn't have the bucks for a new rad, so I put in a known good used one for now. Everything is clean in there but my LBZ still gets dangerously hot hauling my TT up a long grade. My next fix is a brand new rad to see if that helps. Can't believe the money they charge for stuff like this. That's why it's important to check the cooling stack. IOW's the radiator is the last in the stack. It may be spotless but if the intercooler is plugged up with sand (like mine was) the radiator can't get cool air to it to do its job. The whole cooling stack needs to be inspected, not just the radiator. And I do mean inspected it. A lot of people just glance at it and say, ya, looks good. You really should shine a light through the front side row after row to give it a good inspection.

Check you cooling stack!

So I felt my 2006 LBZ was getting a little more warm then it should while towing my trailer. Nothing big. It would get up to 225 in 90 degree weather and the fan would come on and take the temp right down again to 205 or so until the next hill. So I told my mechanic to take the cooling stack apart and give it a gander. Now mind you, this is a 2 wheel drive truck that maybe has been on a dirt road twice in it's 130,000 mile life. I went to pick it up today and ask him what he found. He said "I could not believe it." There was tons of dirt and dragon flies and even a bag!!:E But he said most of the trash was sand! Sand! I said what? This truck has never been around sand in it's life?? He said I don't know how it got there but there was tons and tons of sand stuck and packed in the fins. He said it took many, many wash and flush jobs to wash the sand out of the tube fins. He said it's all clean now and it will for sure run cooler. Bottom line. Check your cooling stack! You might be shocked at what you find. Even if it's a road queen like my truck is.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Poof, and just like that, the plaid is gone. Like a f--t in the wind......gone. That "Poof" was shorter than the bankruptcy and Elon's jail time combined. Or did you mean gone as in sold out? I can't wait for the performance version of the Semi ;) You still waiting for that full self driving car? LOL Or the million robotaxies? Speaking of Semi's. What happened to all of those car carriers that Tusk bought?

RE: 2020 Starcraft Wet Floor Insulation After Towing In Rain

What's to address? It's fiberglass insulation that dries out pretty quickly. Anywhere there is a hole it's going to get wet. My insulation gets wet all the time.

RE: Plug or unplug that is the question

I never did and never had a problem. I have never left my cord unplugged because of this.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I'm old enough to remember that Tesla Plaid was going to beat Porsche in the "Ring". The picture below shows how it worked out. :B https://i.imgur.com/nlcCA1Fl.jpg So the pre production test vehicle had some issues. This is not settled yet. I expect to see a production model on the ring before the end of the year. But Tesla will probably be bankwupt by then right? Production cars are not built on one fast lap. If that were the case we would all be driving NASCAR's or Top Fuel cars. Tusk is doing an excellent job of farming the government just as I said he would. I give him an A+. Where is that semi by the way? It was 2018 and then 2019 and then for sure 2020 and now I'm sure you will say for sure at the end of 2021!! Always just a year away......and then another year away.......Do you want to do another prediction?

RE: Need more tongue weight

So to all of you who suggest putting things like propane, beer, water, and other CONSUMABLES up front for tongue weight... What happens when you burn up all the propane and drink all the beer??? Apparently trailers don't sway on the trip home, only on the way out. I would take the trailer back to where I bought it and COMPLAIN. Get your money back. Their fix will be to add dead weight to the front. Tell them that this is not acceptable. Aaaaaaaa, I would just buy more beer! :B

RE: TT Brake Service

What makes you think you need to clean your TT brakes? Do you clean your TV brakes? That being said, it always a good idea to inspect brake parts on a used vehicle or trailer. That way you know they are in good shape to travel. For the traveling "I" do I inspect my brakes and bearing about every 5 to 7 years or so. About 10 years is the limit for the magnets on the trailer I own. In short, there is no reason to clean brakes unless they are contaminated and that's a whole different issue.
