RE: 50 to 30 to 15 amps

It will work without a problem as long as you limit what you use. Although I would recommend installing at least a 30A RV outlet. At least then you can run everything (only 1 AC if you have 2)! That’s what I do and have no issues.

RE: 2018 TT has been deemed Total Loss by insurance company

Snowbirds leave the city water on for months at a time It’s only waste water if you bathed or cleaned with it. Other wise it’s like filling a bucket from the faucet and dumping it!

RE: GM Colorado bent frame towing 2,100 lbs

From the pic it appears that this is a Zr2 because of the shocks. I don’t think he’s telling the entire story. He may have disconnected the trailer where he wanted to camp and did some trail riding with the truck which included a few jumps to test out that ZR2. It needs to be an insurance claim not a GM claim with bashing from the owner. Gotta be careful with that! A ZR2 is an off-road pkg. if the truck can’t handle what GM designed it to do they are liable.

RE: GM Colorado bent frame towing 2,100 lbs

This is what happens when you start making trucks cheap and lite weight! There is no reason that frame should’ve bent. Even if it was overloaded! If GM is making trucks that do this with no safety margin I can only imagine how they are building the rest of their vehicles! Also this looks like the Raptor frame problems Ford was having. Although those people were driving the truck hard which is what it was designed to do. I highly doubt this guy was doing 50mph with a trailer down a washboard road. But with that said I have seen some crazy complaints come into the dealership!

RE: Drop Hitch Receiver

I would t worry about the extra inches in between the MH and Toad. Just make sure your cables and wiring are long enough to connect. And yes you want it level or close to level. I think read somewhere they want it within 2” of level.

RE: Terrible factory splices in brake wiring

PIECE WORK......DOES NOT PROMOTE QUALITY WORK NEVER has....NEVER will Not sure that is the problem. Hourly pay, you can still get the "I don't give a snot" guy plus you get a large percentage that instead of looking at what might be a better way "So what? The're paying me head down." And if CQ catches a defect, the company pays for the hours to fix it. IMHO, the problem is lack of inspection as it is built. The workers are paid for each job finished. If it was inspected, and found wrong, the worker does not get paid to do that job, or has to come back and fix it for free. Because each worker is wanting to make as much as he can he is always looking for a better way. And for the same reason he will be sure the product meets standards. That’s exactly it. I’m an auto tech and we work by booked hour. I take my time to make sure it’s done right. Take a extra minute and it doesn’t come back where you need to spend 30 minutes. And you have a happy customer.

RE: Terrible factory splices in brake wiring

Yep those are bad doesn’t matter who did them. I was having issues with my 07 trailer after I bought it new. It never stopped good, not even ok! I went around and replaced all the poor crimp connections. I would t want a crimp connection on anything that moves or vibrates! I soldered all the connections. It helped a bit. My problem ultimately was bad magnets. Replaced all 4 and the trailer would stop both itself and the TV without a problem. I figure they were bad from the beginning. It couldn’t have been driven with the brakes applied because the shoes were good. I doubt the pin was pulled because they don’t install batteries until it’s sold. Either way good job on repairing a potential accident.

RE: Wind damage?

I’ve only ever noticed the curb side siding bowing out at the top. I assume a staple or 2 let loose! Otherwise I’ve never seen any damage.

RE: water heaters

Same thing can be said for air conditioner! Doesn’t a furnace also condition the air?

RE: 2018 TT has been deemed Total Loss by insurance company

I wouldn’t have cancelled so fast! If it were me I would’ve found a TT I liked in a short time and not settled just to get one! I’m sure you will have one by your trip!

RE: Virginia I -81 corrider gas tax.

That’s the nice thing about large tanks. We can fill up when and where we want within reason!

RE: Ram 1500 Hemi or Ecodiesel?

As a Chrysler tech, get the Hemi! Too many issues that make owning one not a good experience.

RE: OH Happy Day... for now..... only 2 cents apart

It dropped to $2.50 a gal here at a couple stations. However at other station it was $2.89. I can’t understand how stations a couple miles apart can be that far apart on prices! Diesel is around $2.75.

RE: How to remove/replace bolt

Buy a cutoff wheel/Dremel and cut it off. Then use a self drilling screw.

RE: Flat tow setup

Base plates average $400 a tow bar around $800. Brake system approx $1100. Wiring will be around $175. Labor will be around 6-8 hours. So around $3300. I picked up a “used one time” tow bar and brake system for $300. $400 for a new base plate and $160 for the wiring with diodes. Did all the work myself. The base plate is a 2 hour job. The wiring is the killer, takes 4-5 hours to do it right.

RE: Why 4.1 axle?

A little info. Those multi speed transmissions rarely if ever will use the higher gears. The majority of the time on an 8speed trans you will Rarely if ever use 7 and 8. Same goes for the 10 speeds. 8,9 and 10 are for very high speeds!

RE: GM Yukon XL Denali Transmission Temps

Not bad, but I also would install an extra, larger cooler.

RE: Frods V10 engine

Passes everything but a fuel station. So 7-8mpg is bad. If I recall a DP of the same size may only get 1mpg better. So “passes everything but a gas station” is a useless statement.

RE: Question for Class A owners.

The newer F53’s need to have the front axle removed then the engine and trans are lowered out. That is for major engine work. Anything else can be done in chassis. Not sure on DP’s.
