RE: Another Oldie Not Mine. What can I pull with this?

About as much as I should tow with either of these https://i.imgur.com/NHIkvAil.jpg https://i.imgur.com/I2aKhzWl.jpg

Some just can't comprehend changing anything the factory deems acceptable

RE: When does a Pickup become a " Historical Vehicle"?

The name Suburban was used as far back as the 30's. Carryall was the windowless panel trucks

RE: RV Parks in or near Fargo, ND

Hmm writes that and then doesn't feel he needs to explain why he feels it's sketchy Well, it was a dump. The other campers looked like tweakers. Our dogs growled and then barked. I would have rather camped at our local storage yard or maybe even the landfill. In our recent 19 state trip (just under 11,000 miles), this was the only place we noped the hell out of. We were there the first week of June. There were some high dollar MH and 5ers there and most everyone looked to be of an age to be retired. They certainly weren't druggies or transients. The park was also being added on to probably doubling the size. With such a difference in our experiences are you sure we're talking about the same place

RE: RV Parks in or near Fargo, ND

Last June we stayed a night in Casselton ND which is about 20 mi. west of Fargo. The Days Inn at exit 331 has a full hook up campground and the restrooms and showers are in the motel. Rate then was $44 Thanks, hornet28...I messaged that Days Inn and they said they still have that rv park (full HUs). That Days Inn is pretty sketchy. It’s one of the few places we’ve pulled into and pulled straight back out again. Which direction are you coming from / going to? In what way was it sketchy?

RE: Mount “ditch spots” on tow hooks? / legality / clamps?

Here's one before I put the lights on the front. I bought it in 09 in Phoenix and drove it back. All original paint, with the graphics done at 43 mi. It made a heck of a tow beast, not as good as the Duramax though, but lousy mileage. I sold it without the motor and trans to a guy who was going to do a Cummings swap https://i.imgur.com/itB4noYl.jpg

I've been all over the country with these two trucks with extra lights and have never been stopped because of them or for any other reason https://i.imgur.com/aMvmJYbl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6BF7Hs3l.jpg

RE: Rear picture window model suggestions

I don't have an outside picture but this is the rear living of our 32' Montana Mountaineer. To the right is a slide which has a couch and dining table https://i.imgur.com/AeY0yVZl.jpg

RE: SoCal to East Coast Fall Colors

Actually you wouldn't need to go as far as the east coast. Mn. Wi Mi and northwestern Ontario all boast great fall colors

RE: Yellowstone Trip

I personally love going over the Bighorn Mtn on 14a but agree that for most people it is not a good idea. I don't mind the extreme nature of 14a. I have gone over it in both directions with a variety of vehicle combinations. I have also gone over on 16 and would highly recommend it to most people. You will still be doing some steep and twisted roads. I feel the same way about 14 & 14A

RE: Break away cable

The coiled cables pretty much eliminate any chance of it snagging. Mine isn't hooked on the handle - it's hooked into the handle locking hasp with a carabiner. Serves to keep the handle locked as well as attach the brake cable. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/to7oOvUOtlUzSBuc2ALgxF5WrRIyPIa3AC7d6M-BuNM7GCBKaYkbayhKnS3sUPLNLsi4nljG-Xys982joeC4auNjdw5nkvMhA5MnJODn1SpB16tfqeiGbzawHl7b6UA3xfh9dEoXMwJMkfBiQ2jNk3vazQ2_yJRDYAySIlkvyBX4bkDypK36y6yJ1pLlZ84lSbi_7ZmWk_4MEvTaWHCtr5cYTpIkIH_MzPqYNzjuwHRywfdU2Vi0s76hGX-C0c5mOJ9msy14bqvchBrS0R554eA_cSXyxEqCLgG8Ds3lzQ-A9ve4DvlwuWUHSg_Zqj9qbJWIbnxvY8kD4XgUdoaXvi94Ls_IXHMYo262KkT0JuXCEQthCnKdHlZ2dpe6uoDBlZLtG45Hhi9W_aiCS4kKWwuNBJNv6knkAto3VGHQAaTRCNAewvA5V3aiCGiWaSdsBTBNrZHXKXks8sz0R8S_9PQ8-TiWPAfD3AoAHJwN2s3lmNlH_MULDf4b3bm_Ab4lIfqP318ip6Si-ZXDLF2vaFqYdkjQ0Cd0LoK7H73aF79YP1TpcHuoLoJMkXycd1ikIJdQpHNjORjk7j8w46ez-S5OctlPTa1FmoF7LHp3xTwt1mhazm0TzphjDHOQYM3u-bIsjEqoALWvDXjHu5wg1Xj-dFXRAZA2qIcxt7sBKxQRVyqbjTfFS-EZdutXMmOk8bGWQ6D2tqib0qwCmU7UcS0gO9jofLAdsNUieCytTXRqgXd7=w1091-h818-no width=640 The breakaway should be pointed towards the direction of pull. Not up as shown in this picture. If you loose the 5er the pin may stay in , break the loop off the pin or break the box. At best it will be delayed in activating the breaks

RE: Missoula, MT to Columbia Falls and W Glacier

Taking 35 at Polson is a little slower going than staying on 93 but is very doable. We were just through there in June with our 28' 5er. Been awhile since I was on 206 and that was with a 34' bumper pull. Road at that time was fine.

RE: Oregon or what to do after Glacier

If you get to Oregon and are at all interested in aquariums you should see the Oregon Coast Aquarium in New Port, it's fantastic.; We stayed at Sea & Sand RV Park north of Depoe Bay while in that area. Bullards Beach State Park was another nice campground. If you do rustic The Dalles Campground just outside Mt Rainier National Park was decent but most sites are small such as for tenters and small trailers. We fit with our 27' but not a lot of sites that size. Regarding your dog, we had our 4 yr old 70# Golden Doodle with us on the 5 week trip and he was great but we also didn't go into Canada.

RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

We also go for rides in this. https://i.imgur.com/wIDAS5xl.jpg Got a Hemi? Yes and the car is a 17 T

RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

It's hard to understand some of you guys. To tender to drive a truck other than for towing. How would you ever have managed when trucks really did ride rough, especially 3/4 and 1T's? My wife has had Caddies and now drives a Buick and doesn't mind the ride in the dually a bit. We take it many times instead of her car and did so even when she had one of the Caddies I'm happy to use my pick up for all my driving needs but I recognize it does most things poorly. It would be easy to find a vehicle that would be far better in regard to ride, handling, acceleration, economy and aesthetics. When it comes to towing I would rate my truck as excellent. If you use your truck to do what your Cadillac could do I have to wonder why? hard to understand.. Hard to understand for some maybe. I just like driving my trucks, I feel I have ride, handling, power and aesthetics. I don't drive a plain from the factory truck. Plus I have the ability to see what's happening further down the road. Heck when I had my 2500HD we took it on none towing trips of 3-5K mi instead of a car. I've also driven this 8K in one months time, Mi to Ca to Fl. to Mi https://i.imgur.com/vZVuCbUl.jpg We also go for rides in this. https://i.imgur.com/wIDAS5xl.jpg As you can see I'm not a snob about what I drive but they aren't your one looks like another either. Oh and at 75 I'm not a young guy either

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

The way I did it years ago when I had to flip a switch to change tanks was to run the auxiliary tank first. But then I put a gauge on that tank and no longer needed to do it that way

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

I've been looking into the same thing for a 2017 RAM 1500. From everything I've been able find out, it appears that auxiliary tanks for gasoline have been outlawed. There are lots of options for diesel, but nothing for gasoline. Auxiliary tanks for gas are legal. Check Transfer Flows 40,50,75 gal. tanks for gas
