RE: 2020 Silverado 1500 Duramax and the Ike

I know they're trying to do these test equally between all makes but it would have been interesting to see what happens if he manually downshifted - if that's posssible. Seems possible to have gone down a couple of gears and this is what most drivers would do for sure. Test don't show everything. chevman

RE: Truck batteries

I have a great reason for new batteries as my wife had a very poor heart and I won't let her down trying to have them last until they show going bad. Might not make a difference as we all know nothing is perfect but I feel better trying to be on top of the issue. Feel the same for tires. I practice what I preach. chevman

RE: Tekonsha Prodigy P2 or P3?

RE: 100K miles

You are doing better than my friend that had $47000.00 of repairs in 28K miles on his tiffin. Not a normal but true for them. chevman

RE: New Tires - too many options

99k miles on any tire will never happen for us. Not a good feeling. Chevman .

RE: water heater anode rod

this is what I know. We winter in Az for 6 months. I drain the water heater during the winter and then flush the white crud out from the terrible water here. Once I uses more than enough telfon tape and then noticed later when cleaning again the rod was looking like when I installed it. Plus some rust in the water when draining. I replaced the heater when we were home just because. Also had an older friend that has his neighbor replace the rod with a plug and a valve to drain the tank and the water was a mess with rust. The vinegar cleans the relief and the deposits that were on the valve were gone that could not seal. A lite tap on the end helps if water is leaking. Nice to hear all of the comments above. Never know everything even when my wife tells me"you think you know everything" chevman

RE: water heater anode rod

I have owned my mh for over 12 years and have never replaced the anode rod in my Suburban water heater. I remove it every year when winterizing and there are gelatinous blobs accumulated on it and some minor pitting, but it is still about the same thickness and length of a new one. I have used water from all over the country and it stays in there till I drain it to winterize. I do have a spare rod, buthave never seen the need to replace the old one. Ron if too much telfon tape is used the rod won't work because the treads need to touch the tank's treads. The reason I switched to pipe compound. Also the tank needs to have an air chamber. The relief valve can leak because of no place for the water to go when hot. chevman

RE: water heater anode rod

the relief valve can have build up and not allow it shut off tight. Remove it and soak it in vinegar and it will look new again. chevman

RE: Trouble with California

My dark glasses always came of at the fruit inspection but maybe never have to do that again. Not a route we take anymore for good reasons. chevman

RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

^^^^ 54k without the trailer,64k with the trailer.Rig pulls like a locomotive. With 12 gears you're engine is always going to be at an optimum rpm for whatever you're doing .... cruising, climbing or anything in between, but, when 64k meets a long 8% grade you'll be chugging up the hill right along side Cummins at 30-35 mph saying I think I can I think I can. locomotives tow very slow when I have watched them. Is this your meaning? chevman

RE: 3 Million Cummins for Ram

think about this How many engines has Cummins made for their customers not just Ram? chevman Very good point! Very many more than 3M! And most of them with a very good reliability record. :) reliability didn't work for my friend's Cummins. 28K miles and a $20,500.00 engine repair but his cat engine on the first MH had a cat shop do a repair and after it drank engine oil. 3 gallons on their trip to Az from Mi and same back in the spring. Both not normal stories but both true. chevman

RE: Ram overtakes GM

Could be because Chevy designers stay up nights trying the figure out new ways to make their truck UUUgly / FUGLY. No self respecting truck buyer would drive one of those things without a mask on. that is your opinion but your opinion doesn't matter to me. Just sayin. chevman

RE: No more GM diesels?!

He does not know that an electric motor is the real motor! For years we have confused an Internal Combustion Engine as a motor. Well we all know when a motor is called an engine what the meaning is. Ever hear when talking about power "we need more motor". Also our fat old fingers hit the wrong letter when typing and we all know the meaning. I know you have done this. So what seems important really is not. chevman
