RE: Blood Supermoon in below zero windchill

Awesome pic! We always miss things like this because it's either raining or snowing.Not that I wanted to go outside anyway!

RE: Washing your rv in the lake

I can hear her yelling STOP!.......right after he broke through.

RE: Washing your rv in the lake

Not sure exactly how that happened. Owner initially says parking brake failed. Then blames the dog. Funny thing is, the reverse lights come on just before it starts rolling backwards. If the dog did do it, that's one smart dog to be able to release the parking brake, step on the regular brake and shift it into reverse. Also not very smart to keep it running when it's going under water. He obviously doesn't know/cares what happens when an engine ingests water.

RE: GMC tailgate

I don't think we've discussed this GM ingenuity but recently saw a commercial for it: here's a video: 6-way tailgate... the must have you can delete the option for a regular tailgate but lose the power option. this tailgate is NOT available on silverado's because, you know, they are completely different trucks. this will definitely set the mark for the truck industry moving forward. I wish there was a sarcasm meter on some posts!;)

RE: Engine replacement . Ecoboost and GM 5.3

I would think with the EcoBoost there would be additional labor for any trash that went through the the turbos. I know the price includes turbos. But they're just part of it. What about inter cooler, plumbing,etc? You can't just throw stuff back on after an engine failure when there's debris.

RE: 5th Wheels in NY considered "House Trailers"?

One more thing that NY trailer owners may not realize. Instead of sending your registration in when you receive it in the mail. I wait until about a week before our first trip and register it then. They will pro-rate the fee. The drawback is, it has to be done AT the DMV, you can't send it in. It saves us, on average, $50 on a $130 registration every year. If you go online and make an appointment at your local DMV office before you go, it's usually only about a 15 minute wait.

RE: 5th Wheels in NY considered "House Trailers"?

Lived in NY all my life and have had a 5th wheel trailer and have never heard one called a "house trailer". I renewed mine several times and it was registered as a trailer just like my current trailer. Something doesn't sound right. EDIT: After checking my regi today, it does say H/TR and mine is a TT. No idea when it changed. Maybe we can get tax breaks for owning 2 homes? Ya right!

RE: Help with a salvage title situation

"I knew it was damaged" "I bought it for $552" "It had exstensive damage" But you never thought it was possibly salvaged?

RE: How I camp when there's snow outside

My DW and I just started doing puzzles this winter. We've done a couple outdoor scenes so far. I'm starting to realize I hate trees now.;)

RE: The Best Half Ton Towing Truck - Ike Gauntlet

I've owned two different 6.2's. One with the 6 speed and one with the 8 speed. I now have a 17' 5.3 6 speed. I was thinking that there would be a huge difference in acceleration when towing between the two. I can honestly say there really isn't that much difference. The 8 speed had a 3.42 rear gear and the 5.3 has 3.73's. I'm sure that helps the 5.3. How much is anybody's guess. The 6.2's are awesome and get better mileage than the 5.3 but I won't be getting another at this point. It isn't worth the $2500 upgrade from the 5.3 IMO. As far as GM sending them to a towing test, the 3.5Ecoboost isn't the standard engine for the F-150 so I don't see what the fuss is about.

RE: The Best Half Ton Towing Truck - Ike Gauntlet

Unless I missed it, the only time temps got mentioned was with the GMC. Would be nice to know what temp all of them ran.

RE: Something I just noticed about GMs new truck mirrors.

It's weird that they didn't do something with the old mounting location beyond sticking a black blanking panel there. Seems like it would've been easy enough just to extend the glass into that area and give you a little more visibility out of the window. They would probably have to rework the top corners of the dash in order to make it useable. Could be because they might still have the optional camper mirrors that would still mount there?

RE: For those on the 1/2 ton vs 3/4 ton bubble...

Hill start assist? Wonderful thing. Saw other trucks stopping in traffic on steep hills try to get started and rolling backwards several feet or gassing it and spinning the tires on wet pavement. Grade braking? Awesome. Speed never increased more than 3 miles and hour regardless how steep the descent and I never touched the breaks. Always in control, never felt like the trailer was pushing the truck. I realize it is very dependent on circumstances but having a better tow vehicle makes traveling a much better experience. These two features make such a HUGE difference in safety. 1/2 ton drivers just don't realize what they don't have. I've towed with a 1/2 ton truck. I know the difference first hand. Obviously you don't realize that modern 1/2 tons have had these features for years. an exhaust brake is way more efficient than grade braking . Modern diesels have grade braking, but they also have an exhaust brake. Trying to compare a fully equipped modern diesel tow vehicle to any 1500 gasser is futile. But he wasn't talking exhaust brakes. He was talking about grade braking. How many 3/4 ton gassers have exhaust brakes?

RE: How much trailer can the new 1/2 ton trucks tow?

Maybe I can keep yet ANOTHER thread from getting political on an RV forum.......here goes: I've towed my (scaled) 8300lb TT with 3 different trucks. A 2500HD and 2 different 1500 Max Tows. The 2500HD was the most stable but not the best puller. One 1500 had the 6.2 w/ 8 speed and 3.42 rear with 19xx payload. It towed the best and got 11-12mpg while doing it. That said, it required the LTZ package which I wasn't willing to pay for this time around. My current truck has the 5.3, 6 speed and 3.73 rear and 20xx payload. Although the 6.2 has about 80 more HP, it isn't that noticeable when towing. Not sure if it's the 3.73 in the new truck or not. If you're shopping for a new 1/2 ton I would definitely look into a GM or Ford that can give you more payload. I had to order the 6.2 truck but the 5.3 truck was a dealer trade and there were several of those available. I personally wouldn't go over 7000lbs with a regular 1/2 ton or over 8500lbs with a max tow/ HD payload. I think just as important, maybe more, is the length of the trailer. Mine has an OAL of 35ft and it isn't for everyone on those windy days. I would try and stay under 29-30ft OAL for a 1/2 ton.

RE: 2020 Silverado HD

Really disappointed that the gasser isn't getting the 8 speed. Really disappointed that the truck IS getting the front end.
