RE: Ram HD 1000 lb-ft MPG loop

Will be interesting when all three are tested towing 30k up and down serious grades. Interesting it will be to see what truck is a second or two faster. chevman

RE: Towing to fast results in roll over

We have driven that road many times towing our fifth. The driver really was not paying attendence. Logging truck use that road also and narrow bridges or atleast one I really remember. chevman

Not the first time for me to say this. We bought our truck in Dec 04. Had a custom tank made and installed in March of 05. Reason was to have it from the start and not wait for the truck to getolder and then get the tank. We feel it was a smart purchasa and have enjoyed not having to fuel where it isn't handy. How ever our truck is for towing for the winter season only. garage queen in the summer. chevman

RE: Leveling help

I have used 8x8" 3/4 plywood for many years and no problems. Most of the time 3/4"is just right. chevman

RE: 5th wheel hitch

Two reasons for me doing the pull test is knowing it is ok to go and using the brake to hold the awesome alpenlite that is the 2nd reason for doing both. We all have our way of doing things. chevman

RE: 2001 Alpenlite Rear Window

My rear curved, reflective glass on our 2001 Alpenlite was broken by a pebble shot from a weed eater and I need to replace it. Anyone have any idea where I might look for a replacement? I had a glass repairman look into it but he came up empty. Please let us know on the new glass. We have a 35 ft the curved glass chevman

RE: Flattest Route to Coeur d'Alene, ID

We're looking for the flattest route from Las Vegas, NV to Coeur d'Alene, ID. Interstates are my first choice as we will be on I-15, but I have heard that there are some very steep grades coming from the south and east. Any advice is greatly appreciated. We are in a 40' diesel pusher with a car in tow. If you can handle the traffic though Salt Lake city you can handle anything. I like Hot jags route. chevman

RE: Downshift or exhaust brake?

If I drive our truck solo in tow mode it slows down too fast . chevman

RE: Downshift or exhaust brake?

I know it would be great. After what my wife has been though for over one month and life threating we might have to end rving. This summer will give us a clue. Cabbage patch downgrade next week. Piece of cake tow. Chevman

RE: Downshift or exhaust brake?

We use the cabbage patch going home and have a very controled tow just using the Allison. More trailer weight would want me to have an exhaust brake. Chevman You confirm that the grade braking with the V-8's works better than the Cummins I-6. Chris Same for the 3500 8.1 dually with the same fifth. Same hill. I have been impressed with grade braking on a gas and then diesel. chevman

RE: Honda Generator EU2000

1 ounce per gallon. Seafoam has worked for us for years on our small engines. I also use non ethanol gas also. chevman

RE: Stabilizer

The nice thing about JT and similar stabilizes is when sitting in a windy day or night you will know why they are great. Chevman

RE: Downshift or exhaust brake?

So far not one person has come forward that knows a LoadLeash owner! 33k descending miles of this at 30-35 locked in second with cruise control on. Don't see a need for the LoadLeash. https://i.imgur.com/yluyEYIl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lGlAI2ll.jpg From the looks of that road a new GPS might be needed. chevman

RE: OnStar Question

We like our Garmin better than our 2018 chev navigation. chevman

RE: Downshift or exhaust brake?

I might take a long look at PacBrake “Loadlash” engine brake as an add on to assist the factory EB. I cannot believe your newer truck would need any help going down the mountains. Have you had any trips to think you do? Your truck should be very awesome. chevman

RE: Tire UV Protection

I use 303 to bring out the shine after a wash. It also is very effective for UV. The first time I used 303 I spilled some on the driveway and for six or seven years afterward this spot on the driveway would bead water when srayed. You should see our driveway after a rain. 303 for all tires. chevman

I think it is to each his own here. I will be hitting the road tomorrow in my F250 with cloth seats. Leather is not for my behiney and I do not give a flip about the looks or status. Same here for us. what we do is not for show. But others should buy what they like. chevman

RE: Feedback on the new style entry steps

I installed scissor jacks in front of the wheels on both sides and later JT strong arm stabilizers. I made a short of what I used to install wall cabinets above the counters but much shorter and it can be adjusted for height. The reason is any person going down fifthwheel steps is kinda like an elephant. Every season I bring 4 to give away. Rock solid for us with nothing fancy. chevman

RE: Feedback on the new style entry steps

Our 2001 Alpenlite has very strong steps. I like them better than the fancy new models. Chevman
