RE: Wood or Aluminum Frame?

While aluminum frame will not rot it does provide free passage for water that manages to get inside it.

RE: Would appreciate the groups thoughts on tandem axle issue

Lippert does not make a #4400 axle. You have same as me. #3500 axles with #4400 springs. They call that a #4400 axle. They do have a #5200 axle that is a direct fit except for the U bolts.

RE: Using an automotive battery charger when onboard fails

We did just what you describe a couple years ago when our friends' converter failed. My charger had a 12A setting and didn't cut out all weekend and managed to keep up acceptably. The biggest issue was protecting the charger from the rain.

RE: Trans Labrador Highway

Don't forget to turn left at Deer Lake. There's a lot of island east of that point.

RE: cat toys

Get a cardboard box or a beer tray.

RE: Nascar Follies

Bubba I guess some people refuse to get run over in peace.

RE: Trailer with fixed coupler so it doesn't pivot

You will bend or break something. You don't have to see the trailer if you can see it's shadow. Once upon a time I regularly towed a utility trailer with a full size van. I could not see it out the back window and couldn't see it in the mirrors unless it was turning that direction. I got used to it since I knew if I saw the trailer I had to correct. Tech today makes it much easier. Get a high mounted back up camera.

RE: Have I been doing it wrong all these years?

If you're only going to keep the truck a couple years without a lot of miles then what odds. OTOH if you are going to keep it long term you can save a few bucks on fuel but eventually spend a lot of bucks on transmission. IMO at the very least follow the severe duty service schedule for AT fluid and filthers.

RE: reading transmission fluid dipstick

Read the dipstick. It should say check at idle in neutral.

2009 Burb

Just looked at a 2009 Chev Suburban as a replacement TV. 5.3 former police vehicle with 114,000km on the clock. Opinions please. 1480 payload. TT in my signature.

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!
