RE: Why no ignitor on RV stove?

^Hell, I didn’t even drink until this issue came into my life…. See, should have done something before it got out of hand :B Who said there was a problem? :B

RE: Why no ignitor on RV stove?

Grit, my trailer stove has an ignitor that works with or without shore power. Would you like to buy the trailer? :B You’d have to throw in your awesome stick shift Mega Cab though, cause I don’t have on of them anymore, because the brodozer we got now would have to do the Carolina squat just to hook a 5ver! LOL, I've been trying to convince my better half to sell everything the way the market currently is, but I haven't had much success yet....:)

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

Well, with the experience I had when I was shopping for my current truck, I would say that yes color does matter. I was determined that I was going to buy a white truck until I happened to see the truck that I bought. The Maximum Steel color looked absolutely stunning on the Ram dually when I saw it, and well the rest is history! :C

RE: Ram 3500 issue

Have you replaced the rear differential fluid? Mine was starting to act as you describe and the problem disappeared when I replaced the factory fluid with Amsoil Severe Gear. The factory fluid is junk; I would have replaced it when the truck was brand new if I had known that at the time.

RE: 2000 Triple E Commander Drivers Door power window

I would bet the window regulator assembly is shot. You will need to take the panel off to see what is going on, but broken or frayed cables on them are common. Hopefully there will be a part number on it so that you can get a new one if that is what the problem is. They are readily available at Napa, and they aren't difficult to change (I have done 2 of them on my GMC Yukon this year). I believe Triple E is still operating at a reduced capacity so you may be able to contact them to enquire as to what regulator they used back then.

RE: Tranny fluid change

My wife’s 2005 Acura MDX called for a transmission service that entailed draining the transmission, filling, driving, and then repeating 2 additional times for a transfer of 9 litres. I simply drained the transmission every second oil change and refilled (3 litres each time) and the fluid was like new right up until we sold it this past spring. So for the Ram I would do the simple drain and refill as per the book (or more often if it makes you feel better) and call it good. And it’s very easy to get a full drain and refill on my G56 manual truck! :B

RE: Looking for ideas on how to Roll up/store 50 amp cord

If there is a complex expensive way to deal with something simple someone is sure to suggest it. Cooling the 50amp beast got old real fast so a nautical method of storing awkward line is used. It is flaked into an oval laundry basket. Enough of the female end is left out to reach the inlet. Only as much as needed is pulled out to the utility post. Cheap and effective. I hear you, but you would be amazed how much better the SOOW cord is! :)

RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

Great post, Bob, and I totally agree with you. It always amazes us how many semi trucks tailgate as well; extremely dangerous! :M

RE: Opinions on 5th Wheels with Island Kitchens

We have an island kitchen in our fiver and love it. We cannot get to the fridge with the slides in, but 10 seconds pushing a button easily fixes that. We also frequently put our lunch in our Yeti cooler which eliminates the need to access the fridge in the trailer while travelling. This is not a big deal for us. We can access the washroom with all of the slides in which is much more important! ;)

RE: Saving the Clutch

I love my 2 Low kit; I use it every time I back my trailer into tight spots. It is tight getting into my back yard and using the 2 Low feature makes it MUCH easier on the clutch. In the case of an automatic, it will definitely be much less strain on the transmission. Overall I would say it is one of the best modifications I have done to my truck.

RE: Looking for ideas on how to Roll up/store 50 amp cord

I do the same as Cummins12V98 and rhagfo.. BUT, I also switched to the cord rhagfo mentioned ( 50 amp (6/4)power cable is made of SOOW electrical cord) .... MUCH EASIER to coil and store... Add me to the list of those who have made this switch; the difference is night and day! My old cord is in my shed to go with the fiver if/when I sell it.

RE: New TV

Congrats! We have several 7.3L 10 speed trucks at my work and they have been bulletproof workhorses. I'm sure you will love it! :C

RE: Truck - family of 5 and 65lb dog

MegaCab by RAM will be the biggest cab option available. Plenty of room for the pup on the floor in the back row. X2. We love our Megacab!

RE: Yummy!

So finishing getting the new-used camper ready today. Toilet valve was leaking. Bought a new one. Replaced it. Seemed odd a virtually new valve was leaking but this trailer is basically in its honeymoon albeit 4 years later. Basically new, hardly used. Well it wasn’t the valve but the crimped on hose clamp. At least I have a spare now… Running the toilet valve a bunch and sending a fair amount of water south with a couple fart fans on, ye old black tank sure didn’t smell un-used…. So’s I go to filling and cleaning the tanks. All of them. Black tank flush is pretty cool btw! May as well freshen up the potable tank too since it smelled a little funky as well. Get everything full of water, buncha soap in the dirty tanks and some chlorine in the clean tank, take a little drive around to perfect the washing machine action. Go dump the black and gray tanks and holee sheet! Prev owner’s pristine camper came with gifts! Unbelievable….Really? I totally believe the PO when he said it hasn’t even been used since like 2018. I cant believe he didn’t even dump and clean the tanks halfway decent before parking it! Yuck! A couple of years ago we were looking at used units at a local dealer and we commented about how dirty they were. The salesperson didn't even flinch, but went on to tell us that we wouldn't believe how many units are traded in with full holding tanks....

RE: New Truck!!

I'm sure the Companion is a great hitch, but I love my 24K CURT As do I. I've got the 20K sliding Ram hitch which is a Curt as well and it has been trouble free for the past 7 years. It is by far the heaviest hitch I have had, though...

RE: New Truck!!

Congrats on the truck, OP. You're going to love it! :C And a real bonus is that they went back to the tried and true CP3 injection pump! Please let us know how it is after you tow with it! :B

RE: "Waxing" a fifth wheel camper

I wanted to follow up here. I'm the OP. We finally got our camper done with the Wash WaxAll and we are super pleased. SOOOOOO much easier than what we were doing before. No more climbing up and down ladders a million times. We'll see how it holds up, but application and initial results are great! Thanks all for the advice. Yup, works well, no spending a week for me waxing a fifth wheel, got a lot of others things I would rather do.:) I found the same thing when I waxed my rig this year; same result in a fraction of the time. :C

RE: Slow leak

After all that ,it was just a small pin hole in the tread , I was surprised watching the bubbles, that it only lost 25 psi in six weeks . I would of thought it would have gone flat. Anyway its repaired ,and back on the fifth wheel . Not crazy about patched tires ,but they are nearly new , the shop said there should be no worries about being patched . It should be fine; I ran a patch on one of my truck tires for the past 5 years with no issues. Was it damage from a road hazard or a fault with those "horrible" Sailuns? ;)
