RE: Will I kill my mini-van?

I would personally stick to a pop up. I did use a 2005 Grand Caravan to tow my pop up ( with a slide out, about 2700 lb max gvw ) for 2 seasons. Pulled some good loads with the van full and trailer full. We sold the trailer to friends with a 2008 GMC pickup. He apparently commented to his wife he couldn't understand how I towed it with my van. The high walled trailer will be the problem. As a side note I have never had a Chrysler 4 spd failure out of the 4 that I owned.

I have Hercules tires on my truck. Get more in a heartbeat.

RE: Generator Help - Blue Smoke

I would also suggest PCV issue. On another note, synthetic oils can sometimes leak where Dino oils don't.

RE: FW sensor wiring help

DrewE you are spot on. I now realize that the connectors look sorta like fuse holders but are obviously resistors. Thank-You!

Apologies for lack of clarity. This is my Fresh Water tank.

FW sensor wiring help

Hi all. I had my FW tank out to repair the floor. Being around the block a couple times I made a sketch of the wiring on the cardboard I was using as a creeper. About a month later when I used the tank for the first time I discovered the tank moniter only reads full or 1/3. Hmmm. Maybe I wired it upside down. So this evening I took down the underbelly again and reversed the wires. After all is said and done it seems like only the top and bottom wires were reversed. It seems to be working now but just thought I'd pick your brains before I put the underbelly back. I have a large gauge White wire pig tailed to a small gauge white wire with a screw loop. I think this may be the feed wire. Next I have a large gauge Blue wire pig tailed to a lighter gauge wire, green I think with a screw loop, which also has connected to it an ID'd lighter gauge wire( could be blue and yellow ) that's pig tailed to 2 more light gauge wire with screw loops, blue and yellow. At first I had the white wire at the top, then the blue wire, yellow wire and the double wire at the bottom. I reversed all 4 wires, but now have just the top and bottom reversed and it seems to work. So now it has the white wire at the bottom, yellow, blue and the double at the top. Opinions please. It's the strangest wiring I've seen.

RE: Should I have control arms replaced?

They will not get less rusty.

RE: 2007 Navigator No Brake Fluid at Caliper

Go back to the other end of the steel line. Keep going til you find the problem. Another thought, is the ABS working? You may have to activate the system to get a proper bleed.

RE: Sway issues

Remove anything from the bumper or ladder at the back or the trailer.

RE: TV breakdown 2 days into trip

Most serp belts I've seen lying on the road in pieces have been on hills or in passing lanes. That says it all to me. Under normal conditions your belt may have lasted longer without issue. But if you consider what happens when you get to a hill it no surprise that's where they tend to break.

RE: Engine will not start (2006 Chevy Express 3500 chassis)

Did you bypass the switch?

RE: Unable to shift out of Park

There should be a transmission shift interlock override. I'm sure it's outlined in the OM.

Mine is soft over each of the holding tanks.

RE: Salt, Rust, and the value of a diesel engine

It doesn't matter the brand. Only the truck itself will be the answer.

RE: Stinky cat problem

I'd consider a motion activated animal deterrent/repellent sprinkler. Scarecrow and Orbit are the brands I've heard of most. This is what we did. Only problem is when you forget it's there.

RE: Generator quits

Could be an issue with the oil level sensor. OTOH is the gen level when you are running it? Off level in the right direction will behave the same as low oil if the sensor is on the high side/not submerged.

RE: Check Engine Light

Usually the computer will have to register the issue on 3 consecutive "trips" to set a code. Likewise it will put the light out with 3 consecutive trips without the fault appearing. Be aware that the computer's definition of a "trip" is different than ours. I would start with a set of plugs but I have seen vehicles with over 200,000 KM on the factory ones and running fine.

RE: Refrigerator runs on A/C but not LP

I have had to try lighting my Dometic fridge multiple times on occasion. The worse time for me was when FIL borrowed both my tanks. It took MANY attempts to get it to light even after the stove, furnace and WH were going strong.

RE: uneven tire wear on tow PU= '07 Toyota Tacoma 4WD

Towing. Period. Even not towing the rears will wear faster anyway.

RE: Battery in key fob ?

As for the original question of the FOB battery. I remote start my 2010 Ram 99% of the time with my FOB and it's original near 9 yr old battery.
