RE: Have low beams on when high beams engaged? Relay?

The reason they turn off the low beams with the high beams has to do with how much light is emitted from the front of a vehicle. But for those of us that can actually drive and pay attention we turn off the high beams with in coming traffic or over taking another vehicle. So we don’t blind other drivers.

RE: Have low beams on when high beams engaged? Relay?

I modded my 2012 high beam switch to do this. As well as I bypassed the fog lamp shutoff relay. So now all the headlamps can be in at the same time. And being all LED now the amp draw is about the same as it was with just 2 halogens.

RE: DISCUSSION: 8 ft + crew cab vs. SUV

We have a Ram 4x6 (why do they say 4x4 when there are 6 tires on the ground?) crew cab, 8' bed. My ONLY complaint is we can't take it thru a drive thru car wash. The 2 rear tires are attached to one axle shaft and aren’t driven separately. Think of it as one wide tire. A real 6X6 would have 3 axles.

RE: Old truck, new look…

The 20” wheels kills it for me. I wouldn’t have gone bigger than 17” myself. They are just to big for a square body!

RE: DISCUSSION: 8 ft + crew cab vs. SUV

I towed a 35ft TT with my Excursion. Loved that set up. I was thinking about a truck to replace it with a few years ago. I was considering a crew cab and 6’4” bed (Ram). After having driven my Wxcursion for so long I had no need or desire for a crew cab 8ft bed. I would’ve considered a Mega Cab and 6’4” bed but those are near impossible to find used. But in the end I went with a 1/2 ton crew cab and 5’7” bed and no trailer. We now have a class A. Hopefully this didn’t add anything useful to the conversation?

RE: Slides out or autolevelers down first?

Always level first. Otherwise if off level the slides can and will go out uneven and may cause damage.

RE: Toads

So, they asked their question here and the first 3 responses were telling them not to believe the salesman (which they never even mentioned)! yet no one has answered the question. So I’ll give it a shot. As far as I can tell if it’s AWD then yes it’s flat towable!

RE: Park pet peeves, Park owner’s turn

Check out at noon and check in at 4:00 is beyond ridiculous especially when nothing was done to the site in those 4 hours! No need to add fees to your already overpriced rates, especially the ”Resort” fee because you recently painted the sign out front! And yes charging extra for me using the AC when we both know I’m going to use it because it’s 90+ degrees is again ridiculous. Your “grass” that is really just weeds isn’t as nice as you think it is. And it’s not my fault I can’t see your imaginary line between the weeds and the thinning 8ft wide gravel pad! I’m sure you have a decent place, but let’s be realistic, it’s not Blue Water Key, it’s a campground amongst other Ho hum campgrounds!

RE: How does 50 amp work?

Why doesn't someone simply state that 50 amp service allows 50 amps of usage on 2 separate legs of the service (100 amps) vs. 30 amp service that allows for a total of 30 amp service to the entire coach. OK, I know it was posted but this is about as simple as it gets. 2 - 50 amp legs vs. 1 30 amp for everything. It wouldn’t be the internet if something easy was made hard!

RE: Broken Frame on a RAM 3500

When I seen this on Facebook I immediately went and looked up that TC. 3 slides and a dry weight of 4500lbs! Now add in all of their stuff, clothes, food/cooking, water and 2 Ebikes and rack hanging 6-8ft behind the rear axle and this as bound to happen! At the size of that TC why not just get a 4X4 class C?

RE: How does 50 amp work?

Technically a 50A service is 220V. It just depends on how the power is pulled from the service panel I some the RV. Most RV systems use 110V appliances. An RV uses 2 50A legs of 110V.

RE: No scheduled maintenance on Ford Superduty

Filled for life is great for trans shops and dealerships. Fluid is cheaper than a trans. At the very least drain the fluid and refill it. I’m sure the fluid is pricey, but again it’s better than getting stranded because you didn’t change the fluid!

RE: Blue Ox True Center issue.

Thanks everyone. The MH is in storage until the spring so I can’t check anything until then. I have been told that the very small spot welds that hood the solenoid can break loose and cause this issue. So next spring I will remove the inspection plate and check that as well as the connections.

RE: Towing Grand Cherokee with Gas Ford V10

We tow a 13 Ford Explorer 4WD. Weighs around 5k with 4 bikes and kayaks. I’ve towed into the Colorado Rockies and in the eastern mountains. The V-10 performs good, a tune from 5 star will make perform great! I towed out west without a tune and in the east with a tune. While the factory program does OK, the tune really wakes it up. You will know you have 5k lbs behind you, but it will pull it no problem. Always use the tow/haul mode towing or not. Thanks for the response. I am hesitant to tow that close to the limit to be honest, but figured I should get some others opinions before deciding how to proceed. Honestly, I wouldn’t think twice about it! The V-10 is more than capable! I have my Ipad set up with Dash Command for real time gauges and trans and engine temp are always right where they need to be and have never climbed much past where they normally sit.

RE: Interesting video on the Cybertruck design & designer

The truck is ugly, I don’t care it it has a 600mile range and 400 towing, I wouldn’t want it. If I was forced to, it would be either a Rivian or Lightning! No thanks!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Man. This thing is going to need a complete rebuild after they are done with the rebuild! Yay! Another project! Wahoo! ;)

RE: Question for class A and C people with toads!

Yes I could disconnect the toad, but as has been said, when staying for the night it’s the reason I got a pull through! Some of these resorts are just that. One was a high end resort that was 2 years old. If we weren’t in the area for a wedding for a couple days I would’ve been very upset. It’s really not that hard or expensive to put a T underground and another 10 or 20FT section of 3” PVC pipe with an elbow to move the outlet forward to make it useable for everyone! Cutting in tee's is a lot more expensive than another 10' of sewer hose Not during the building of a campground, it’s pretty easy and cheap. Like I said, I’ve used 30-40ft Of sewer hose before. Not doing that again!

RE: Ford V10

What year is your coach? Drive by wire started around 06?
