RE: Broken Leaf Spring

We needed a new spring on our Alpenlite. the spring had a wrap that was soft metal, so it was easy to bend and remove. The code stamped on it that told everything needed to order a new spring. It was something like A22 on ours. chevman

RE: Not a good week for Ford

My cousin had $50.000 of recalls on his 1999 Fleetwood MH. Even after he sold it more were rolling in to him. chevman

RE: 2500 Chevy Duramax vs 2500 Ram Cummins on the Ike Gauntlet

If any body cares we towed down a long 6% grade today and the allison held 50 MPH in 4th and 2500 rpms and no brake application. Love this truck for it's final tow. chevman

RE: 2500 Chevy Duramax vs 2500 Ram Cummins on the Ike Gauntlet

The main issue with the Chevy is it didn't downshift until a brake application and then the rpms went up to ~2,500 rpm's like the Ram and it held the speed thereafter. didn't the exhaust brake on the chev slowed down more than the driver wanted? plus the chev was a 3.43 Rear diff. Nice tow with either truck. chevman

RE: 2500 Chevy Duramax vs 2500 Ram Cummins on the Ike Gauntlet

it looked like the chev wasn't on tow mode from how they figured where it was located. Might not be different but it is on our 05??? Fun to watch. chevman

RE: Bedroom door comes open during travel.

We travelled 1500 miles to home from Az in 2020 with my wife in the alpenlite. she thought it was awesome and enjoyed the ride. air hitch and trailer air suspension might be the reason. Not how we wanted to travel but no choice. chevman

RE: New to 5th wheel, have questions !!

Per our TV, we can tow a much heavier FW, but this one is just right and the DRW adds stability in our opinion. Renee's wife asked me several years ago about why we had a dually truck. I said my reasons and had a nice visit but when they bought their dually I was happy to maybe have helped in their decision. chevman

RE: Oil changes with synthetic

Many years ago, when Hector was still a pup, and folks still believed in silly things like objectivity, Consumer Reports did a pretty thorough test with NY city taxi cabs and oil changes. Sythetic was still a niche market then, but after running taxis for 100K miles on almost all readily available oil brands, they tore them down to inspect and measure. The conclusion was, as long as the oil was changed at the then-standard 3000 miles, it didn't matter if it was mobile one or PepBoys reclaimed oil. Their conclusion was to make sure you changed it. Take that info for what you paid for it. That said, two things to keep in mind: Your truck may have an "extreme duty" PM schedule because you tow or haul (Ford dealer service manager told me even if you tow occasionally). Point two...I have zero doubt oil now is better than its ever been, so I have confidence that it's lubrication capabilities are up to the 5 or 10K mile task. But....that black stuff in oil, that makes it black? That's dirt. It aint food coloring. Contaminants are so named because they aren't supposed to be there. I have historically changed mine in my former sig pic F 150 because I ran the dog pee out of it when towing. It never went past 4000 miles without a change. For the cost of Motorcraft synthetic blend and a new filter, I'll eat the minimal cost difference to keep sleeping soundly at night with the new truck as well. When my odometer in my 7.3 gas engine in my new F-250 hits about 4000 miles, I'll be crawling under it again with my drain pan. Thats my 4 cents. Y'all can do as you wish. The cost of one oil change per year wouldn't make most of us even blink. I'd love to be in that club. I agree, oil gets beat up pretty bad when towing. Think about all the heat cycles and pressure it’s put through next time you’re climbing I70 in CO or any big climb! And with that…..how many people change their transmission fluid regularly. I do my trans every 25-30k miles. When I had the Excursion even the rear diff got new fluid at the same intervals. I also wonder how many people replace their brake fluid? This is a safety item and when towing (stopping) brake fluid gets very hot! Here again I change the fluid at every brake job, about 30-40k miles. On my class A it gets done about every 3 years. I have changed the brake fluid and steering fluid several times on our 05 rear diff 13 times and allison external filter every year with the trannie 3 times. might be the reason for the truck running awesomr at 114K miles also new coolant 3 times. chevman

RE: Oil changes with synthetic

Once a year I change the oil in my garage and Blackstone's reports have always been good job. chevman PS usually our truck is driven 6000miles per year.
