RE: Best truck for Northern Lite 10-2

Having owned both, my perception is the Ram is a high torque lower RPM traditional diesel. My Ford felt more like a high revving hot rod truck engine. Strangely I prefer the feel of the Ram. No issues with the 2 Rams I owned. The Ford(2012?) had to be re flashed twice and didn't help the issue of at the worst possible time, like pulling into heavy traffic with the boat, it would cough, spit, and fart until just before I got run over, and then decide to run. I bought the Ford diesel because I just couldn't stand screaming up hills, getting passed by18 wheelers, then flying downhill and passing the same 18 wheelers again, and again, and again. Get a diesel dually and put a big sway bar under the rear and get on the road.

RE: Wheel Bearings

It looks very similar to a regular seal. Best to look up the seal number on National’s site to see what they show. Maybe someone with better computer skills could post something. Probably Inpro bearing isolators. Inpro-seal.com

RE: Any 1st time pickup TC out there to give their thoughts

We are on our third 5th wheel and 2nd TC. Wife has no interest in the 2nd TC and has never travelled in it. I use it for fishing trips and dirt track races. Unfortunately I'm not using it often enough.

RE: furnace while driving

For OUR RV, we don't need to do that, it will heat up very fast.. Usually by the time I am done setting things up and scanning the TV, we are getting warmer.... We just turn on the LP heat AND the electric fireplace..all is good ! What are the odds you're at the sprint car national finals in Charlotte? They got qualifying in before the rain!

RE: Trailer leaning

Used to be a spring shop near downtown named Heitman Spring. Not sure if it's still in business. Might check with them. Also Axle & Wheel aligning on HWY 225 at Richey might help.

RE: I-10 Thru Houston

I think if I was taking the 146 south to 610 option, I would just stay on 610 rather than getting back on 10 and going through downtown. 610 south then connect back to 10 on the west side of town. 610 at 59 can get busy but is usually better than 10, especially the big intersections just east of town.

RE: Missing couple camping on Padre Island confirmed dead

Some will take this as being insensitive, but all that has been reported about border violence, you just can't be naive and think you will be immune. I lived in Laredo and worked within 10 miles of the river on a very isolated 105,000 acre ranch. You had better have your head on a swivel, avoid being alone, and get back to home before dark. Many bad things happen there.

RE: OH where to?

I bought a book "Camping in COE Parks" or something similar. From Amazon. Covers every COE park in U.S. Good book.

RE: I-10 Thru Houston

According to the TV traffic reporters it can get bad in morning and evening rush hours. 146 south out of Baytown is about the best you can do if you're continuing west on 10. But if you're northbound out of Houston you could take 96/287 north out of Beaumont and then 190 west to 59/69.

RE: What percent of the time do you leave your TC on your truck?

Side question for those who use truck for camping only, how you deal with registration and insurance? Even with my good records and liability only, keeping truck registered in Las Vegas cost about $1400 annually. Good part, Clark County allows for plate surrender and they give me credit for unused fee. Still if I don't use credit in about 6 months, I am at lost, but at least insurance is not playing games with me. I don't know how y'all deal with that. It's ridiculous. My 1 ton dually registration is about $140 per year. Would have been less than that if I hadn't re-registered it for its GVWR of 14,000. The RAM dealer originally registered it at 10,000#. According to them...it weighs 8,000# and it's a 1 ton , so 10,000. I would imagine 99% of all duallies in Texas are registered the same way. My dealer was totally confused..."why would you do that?" I'm kinda wondering myself.

RE: OH where to?

We stayed in Whites Acres, in Bardstown. Very basic but well kept. Somehow missed Heaven Hill, probably just putting it off and ran out of time.

RE: traveling

Zoom in on Google street view and take a look.

RE: What percent of the time do you leave your TC on your truck?

Put it on a few days before a trip and take it off when I get home. I live in a small town full of oilfield trash and cowboys so most folks are familiar with duallies. But I usually park away from the business doors anyway. I drive it everywhere including downtown Houston. Wife has never sat in the drivers seat.

RE: Colorado campground for next summer

We have next August reserved at Vallecito Resort, Vallecito CO. Nothing fancy but I'm good with that. I'm familiar with area and it is good exploring. Northeast of Durango.

RE: Building RV park near McKinney TX, what would you want most?

I'm thinking you will have to be whatever your competition ain't. But looks like you have plenty of competition. Probably the nicest RV park at WinStar Casino just across the river on I35 in Thackerville, OK. COE parks on Pat Mayse Lake. Probably other parks on the nearby lakes. Best of luck but I wouldn't do it.

RE: Route I85

Yeah that just ain't right. I can't imagine what kind of limitations there would be.

RE: Route suggestions please!

You will be ok in Big Bend. I wouldn't hang out around Laredo late at night though. I lived in Laredo for work for a year. Worked oilfield north of there,actually next to George Straits ranch. Just use common sense. Don't get all compassionate if you see migrants along the road. At most throw them a bottle of water without stopping. Most dangerous areas are isolated ranch roads.

RE: Route suggestions please!

A small Alabama Coushatta Indian reservation east of Livingston. Maybe another south of ElPaso. Texas has no federal land except national forests and grasslands and they were acquired relatively lately. One of the conditions for Texas coming into the union was that we kept all open lands. Y'all wanted us bad. We're having second thoughts about the whole deal.
