RE: Ford as a tow vehicle

My 2011 Tahoe was one of the early AFM engines and the only time I notice it is when I am driving between 29-35mph and the thing keeps switching all the time. While towing or at any other speed it is totally imperceptible. I agree. Something is wrong. The F150 will fix the Chevy problem. Just research the issues. Sometimes the Devil you know….

RE: DVD and Blu Ray being discontinued?

I’m still buying VHS tapes and cassettes. Lots of old content you can’t get any other way. Plus it doesn’t disappear from the digital library magically. As for camping I just download some shows and movies to my iPad and connect it to the TV. Thanks, Jeremiah.

RE: Chevy Tahoe 5.3L as tow vehicle

An oversized tranny cooler is a good idea and will have it installed before I tow anything. Any particular brand that works with Tahoe? They are kind of universal. I used a large Hayden trans cooler and a Hayden install kit from O’Reiley auto parts. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Busted!

Come to Tennessee like the thousands of New Yorkers moving here ASAP. Not being political. It’s just a fact of life. This state is exploding with folks from California and New York/ New Jersey. Not sure why, can’t put my finger on it. Thanks!

RE: How did I do this? - Bent Ball Mount

Buyer Beware is all I can say. Harbor freight is great for some things but I wouldn't touch anything that I would depend on for safety OR long life, with a 10 foot pole as they say. There is a fine line between inexpensive and cheap. Slow down there friend. This is the exact same hitch as the Pro Series round bar hitch. I know, I have both hitches. Same welds, same fittings, same everything. Even the packaging was the same with different labels. It’s called white label products, very common in our modern industry. OP, this was probably bent by the sway bars crashing into the mini balls. I’ve done that too when my sway bar install was off by about 1 inch. You can do it going forward or backwards. When you bottom out the sway bars it will do this or it will snap off the mini balls. https://i.imgur.com/PLLxichl.jpg Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Greasing the hitch

Yes and I just use grease from my grease gun.

RE: Axle Ratio, new truck

Get the gear ratio you can get the best deal on. You will not notice any difference unless you tow with both of them. Thanks Jeremiah

RE: It’s the little things! Gravel Pad for my TT!!

Thank you all for the kind comments! I am very excited and am already planning camping trips next year. (Making reservations this week) I love living here in Tennessee and having the trailer here at the house sure is convenient. Thanks! Jeremiah

It’s the little things! Gravel Pad for my TT!!

I just got back from our last trip of the year (probably) and parked the TT on its new gravel pad next to the house. It’s not a huge thing but it is a nice thing to have. Check it out! https://i.imgur.com/BU4UP7yl.jpg Have a great thanksgiving week everyone! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Should I get a new Tow Vehicle or a Bigger Gas Tank?

I get about 170 miles on a tank with my Tahoe and I start hunting for fuel. I tow at 55-60 MPH That that puts me over three hours of travel. I can’t go much longer without a bathroom break and a stretch my legs break and walk around the rig and make sure everything is okay break. Keep the frontier if it meets your needs, or get a Ram with the 3.6 Pentestar. That is a bullet proof motor. Thanks, Jeremiah

RE: two days cold coming, not winterized yet

Ensure water tank is off, drained, and bypassed. Open low point drains, blow out the lines, close the low point drains and blow out the rest of the lines moving from the furthest faucet to the water inlet to the closest. Drain the gray water tank and the black water tank if needed . Use $2.50 gallon of RV antifreeze and run through your lines. Add pink stuff to all the s traps. The first time should take you 30 min to 1.5 hours. After that it gets much quicker after this. Takes me 20-30 minutes now because my Zinger has a dumb false mini wall I have to crawl into a storage cubby and remove before I can bypass the water heater. I do not mess around with freezing temps. Frozen lines are no fun and I have had to fight them enough. I just winterize as needed. Thanks and good luck. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Wheelbase factors

There are many other factors at play than just wheelbase. It does help, wheelbase, but there is more to it than that. My 2011 Tahoe, 6 speed Transmission, 10 Ply LT tires, large trans cooler, 3.08 gears, 31 ft Travel Trailer weighing 7,200 ish lbs. Tows like it’s on rails behind my Tahoe, the same vehicle that many people discourage others from towing with. Trans temp stays about 180 degrees while towing. And, my previous TT was pulled with The Godfather of TV, a CC, LB, Dually so this isn’t some newb trying things out. I love pulling trailers and this is my favorite TV I have ever owned. Thousands of trouble free miles over several different vehicles, it’s all in the set up. All of it. Not just one piece of it. https://i.imgur.com/bsFFKKql.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ZbBC3ZFl.jpg Hitch Hints Article Thanks and JMHO based on experience. Jeremiah

RE: ACME nut destroyed

Better have them made by local propane distributor, they will use better hose. I didn't know you can have these made locally. I'll check into it. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: ACME nut destroyed

Buy pigtails made by Marshall Excelsior. They will be USA made, including the hose. I buy the steel braided version. You probably have the hose with the reverse flare on the regulator end, and probably 15 inch. 15 inch, green nut, steel braid LP tank pigtail Charles Thank you! I will order one. Jeremiah

RE: ACME nut destroyed

Thanks everyone, these are BRAND NEW. It’s a 2020 and always under a cover. As a matter of fact, this was fine two weeks ago when we last camped. Just funny.

RE: Thinking of New Aluminum Sided Travel Trailer

Not sure about all the sciency stuff but I love our Crossroads Zinger. I’ve watched the brand over the years and they seem to hold up pretty well. Ours is brand new and knock on wood, no issues except a broken ACME nut I found yesterday and some nuzmbskull installed the door latch backwards. Thanks and good luck Mike Up! Jeremiah
