RE: Adventurer TCs

We have a 2006 that is like a tank. In 12 years of ownership we have replaced 2 dome covers. Haven't used it much in the last 2 years, but just bought a boat so more use is in thd books.

RE: New Duramax owner hitch question

Hensley offers a puck adapter for the Trailer Saver BD3 (excellent hitch) and the heavier B5 will fit directly into the GM puck system without an adapter. Do yourself and your fiver a favor and get an air suspension hitch. I use the Reese picture frame adaptor with my BD3, $200 cheeper. X2 on the air hitch.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

I know you are all expert drivers, but, all it takes is a couple of seconds and your lives could change forever. Taking your eyes off the road for 5 seconds while travelling 55MPH is like driving the length of a football field blindfolded. It is just not cell phone usage, it's the coffee on the way to work a quick look ay your Nav screen to check traffic, that all adds up to significant tome periods that you are not paying attention to what you are doing. I just hope that no one of you experts guiding your 5000+ lb missles never hurt anyone.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

I have been reading all of these posts from people with a wide variety of opinions. While everyone is entitled to their own opinion, most of them come from people who haven't experienced any real loss other than some material damage. The idea that lost human lives are just collateral damage is insane. Has anyone lost someone close to them due to distracted driving? I have, and I for one am glad about the increased enforcement in British Columbia. If one life can be saved it is all worth it.

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

Not worth the life long battle that would ensue. Your storage is only 2 miles away (lucky), a couple of 10 minute trips are worth the comfort of leaving your house unattended while camping and only having inconsiderate neighbours vs neighbours that dislike you and know your are away!

RE: additional battery charger

Just get a PD9260 and use it as a stand alone charger.

RE: Proper Trailer Brake Function Check???

the way I was taught to check trailer brakes is.......Get up to about 20 MPH on a gravel surface and manually apply the trailer brakes if they skid, turn it down .5 and try again. If they don't skis turn up a notch until they skid and turn back .5 Been doing this for years and never had an issue. Most newer trucks with factory brake controllers don't send full voltage to the brakes belos about 15MPH.

RE: RV Quality

Quality of assembly, quality of materials and quality of design are three different things and all three need to be in play for the formula to succeed. It is the same in automotive world as in the RV industry as it is in the small appliance industry. Most of the main stream products we buy are assembled by robots and that can be done due to platform interchangeability and outsourcing sub assemblies from other manufacturers. Resulting fairly high quality of assembly, not so in the RV industry. Quality of design should be equal in most cases, as the computers do most of the designing in today's society. The real culprit here is quality of assembly, think about any high end market item made in Germany vs a similar product from China. While they look the same, they aren't even close in quality. Marine grade plywood vs OSB, 1 inch walls vs 3 inch walls, hourly wage vs piecework pay. These all result in a very different but similar looking products.

RE: Is it just me?

Try backing a cargo trailer behind a TC. After a few trips you get pretty good at backing without being able to see the trailer at all.

RE: Wow is my truck fast. I bought it used so not bragging.

Modding diesels is intoxicating, not cheap though!

RE: Olympian Wave heater

We used our buddy heater for those days when the furnace is not needed to heat the underbelly. The nice thing about this type of heater is the low noise level and way it heats everything, not just the air. I also rode in the back of pickups, drank from a green garden hose and I also swim in the ocean.
