RE: OH where to?

If your going that far south consider Whitten Park near Fulton Mississippi.

RE: OH where to?

Really trying to find COE parks, but most in our area of interest don't open until later April or even May. Guess a lot more research in is order. Unfortunately our departure date is set by the factory completion date. Guess we'll just have to find more distilleries and sit it out. Seven Points Campground on J Percy Priest Lake, just east of Nashville opens April 1st.

RE: Camping around Christmas time

Lot of places in south Georgia & Alabama. Most any where south of Savannah, Macon or Montgomery would be fine most years.

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

Not at all, do you really think you need a diesel to tow 7500 to 8000lbs 15 to 20 times a year? If I exceed 10,000 I will certainly be looking at one, but for someone who does not daily drive their truck and isn't towing more than 10,000lbs regularly it is not needed. No if I was at that weight I'd probably still have a gas truck. That said I like having more truck than needed. Even if the 20 gas trucks are rated to pull our 5'th. I'm not giving up the Duramax or the extra 2 tires.

RE: North North Carolina to Sevierville, TN routes?

US-321 from Boone to Johnson City is ok. Kinda slow but it's not really that far. Road has lots of curves and hills, nothing extreme but constant.

RE: Gap year, family of 6, TV and TT recommendations

Have you given thought to a Class A gasser. You would all have more room. and you could tow your Honda. Might be cost effective.

RE: RV Router

Read this. It seems to be what I've done, at least the setting match. And I think is written better. It also explains the IP's better. Client Mode

RE: RV Router is your gateway, or is it the subnet router address? When I redid the configuration as a bridge, I couldn't see the router and I should have been able to The intention is to have a wired client to a separate wireless router that all the devices will connect to. I'm thinking I'm getting trapped on the subnet issue is the IP of the DD-WRT router. Subnet is still and gateway is never been set anything.

RE: RV Router

Couldn't get a solid light. Found my instructions for a repeater bridge, and could get a solid light, but as soon as I changed the address to, I couldn't get in at all, and when I turned wifi back on, not even seeing the WRT54g. I'm missing something here, and not sure what. What gateway address are you using? But I don't think it matters as long as it different from that ahead and behind I would guess that you not seeing the WRT54g because it's in client mode and not broadcasting, which it should be. When you change IP it will kick you out. I would do a ipconfig to make sure it's set for what you think it is, fat fingers can cause a lot of grief.

RE: ST Tires ???

Just curious why you would go back to ST tires. Have you had issues with the LT tires you've been using? Personally the only ST tire I would ever buy would be a Sailun. This!

RE: How To Video: Changing a Duramax Fuel Filter.

This video applies to LB7-LMM for sure. I think LML and later use a different style filter. Video: Changing a Duramax Fuel Filter LML still uses that filter. L5P does not

RE: RV Router

It's been a long time since I've played with DD-WRT (over a decade), do you recall where the setting is to only allow log in via cat5? Wireless> Advanced settings. Bandwidth is a big issue, but my needs are low. Also early AM most everybody is still in bed. But getting a stable connection is step 1. We just got back from 2 weeks up north, 5 days at Aune Osborn and 4 at Mackinaw Mill Creek. Then back home where it's still upper 90's Used this setup both places.

RE: B&W base for GM puck system

Add to what Chris said, I had to readjust mine after the first few trips. Don't know if it was paint undercoating or what. Been good since, but I have not taken the hitch out either.

RE: RV Router

It mostly makes sense, but I'm extremely tired right now. I put a high gain antenna on my WRT54G that allowed me to sit out on the lake and use the house wifi with my laptop :) The range was phenomenal. Also experimented with a script that automatically searched for "open" wifi. I found a business almost 1/2 mile away that was open. Don't find that too often anymore. I'll have to try it this weekend where our park model trailer is located. I'm a bit on the fringe of receiving a good signal. Only problem, they have two different broadcast names, and sometimes one works and sometimes the other works. Anytime you scan and log into the park wifi with the WRT54G, it's hard wired to your laptop then? Why do you do that? Guess I better figure out how to turn off wifi on my new laptop! Any particular reason for netgear, or will any modern router work? I had a freaking awesome ASUS at my B&M, that one day decided it had enough. Running off the AT&T modem/router now. Your big high-gain antennas should help. But just the extra power of the router and being able to place it high is the big benefit. The TX power can be adjusted some with DD-WRT. The WiFi range of some laptops and most phones is poor. I have seen the auto search talked about, but never tried that. The Netgrear router is just a router, was on the shelf at Walmart at a price I was willing to spend. So anything you have laying around will work for that. I made the Linksys GUI hard wire because sometimes it’s like an open network, no security if I’m connecting to an open network. This way no one can login and make changes even if they could get past user name and password. Not something you have to do, just something I did. I have also changed the router IP address. I do that as a matter of set up for any router. Not sure it matters, but doesn’t hurt. I keep a “cheat sheet” with User name & password the IP addresses and directions in the trailer. I might not use them for months, and memory ain’t what it used to be.

RE: RV Router

I’ll try. The Netgear router is setup normal, just like I would at home. Only change I ever make to it is channel. The DD-WRT router is basically just a network adapter that outputs via a LAN cable. The Linksys router feeds the Netgear with a short network cable from 1 of the Linksys LAN ports to the Netgear Wan Port putting us behind the Netgear’s firewall. The DD-WRT is set to Under Wireless> Basic Settings. Client and Mixed. My Sensitivity Range (ACK Timing) is at 2000, Mode is Bridged. Security tab disable SPI firewall. This stays the same To get new network Go to Stats Tab> Wireless, Site survey at bottom of page. Click, select network from list and click the join button on right. It should take you back to Wireless Basic, and have SSID of network you joined. Next select the Wireless Security tab and select WIFI Security type and enter passphrase or key. Often it’s disabled. I apply settings then save. It will take a minute to make the “Handshake” but when the light on the front lights your in. I open a new tab and try a website, if I get it it’s done. I have my DD-WRT router set so I can not change settings wireless, I must use a LAN cable. This means that while doing this I must turn the laptop WiFi off. DD-WRT router is a WRT54G-TM (sold thru T-Mobile) DD-WRT router Firmware Version DD-WRT v24-sp2 (09/08/09) mega - build 12874 Most times the routers will sit on the top shelf in the front wardrobe of our 5’ver It’s up high and there is 110 power there. But I have set them in the cabinet above the rear window. You have to look for the campground AP and work from there. I do hope this makes sense.

RE: RV Router

I run a old WRT54G Linksys with DD-WRT as a client bridge to access campground WiFi. It feeds a Netgear R6020 router that all our devices connect with. Through put is better with the client bridge setup than having the Linksys as a repeater. Campground network only sees 1 device, and we are behind a hardware firewall. Helps with signal strength, but bandwidth is still an issue.

RE: height adjustment

"I have my B&W set to the rear on this truck, helps a lot." Curious why you are setting your pin behind the center of axle instead of in front? Because I had the same problem the OP has. Entering or exiting my driveway with the 05 truck I had 1/4 to a 1/8 of inch between the bed corners and the underside of the overhang. The driveway slopes up to the road, the road is banked to the other side That truck set the hitch head 2” ahead of the axle. I had 7.5” over the bed rails. Now with the hitch moved back 3”, higher bed sides, and 6.5” over the rails, I have more than an inch. It takes more of an angle to close the vertical distance when the horizontal distance is less. Trailer tows very close to level, takes a tape to tell it’s not. Plus extra inches with the tailgate down. What’s not to like? Does it take some weight off the front? Probably does. But I’ll bet I still have more weight on the front axle than a gas truck. And I’m a long long way from RGAWR. The benefit of having lots more truck than needed.

RE: height adjustment

Does the Curt have any fore & aft adjustment? Moving the hitch head back will help keep the rear corners from hitting. I have my B&W set to the rear on this truck, helps a lot.

RE: Anti roll bars for fifth wheel with air ride.

I would disconnect the hoses between them and install individual fillers for each side so the pressure can no longer transfer. B.O. I'd just put a valve in the crossover line. Open to fill then close.
