RE: Flipping Axle

I've done a few "spring over axle" conversions. Flipping the axle is a no go. If you flip the axle, the tires rotate the wrong direction and then the brakes won't work

RE: Clean Diesel trucks for TC ... maybe not!

Edge Insight CS2 - 84030 seem to support my 6.7 Powerstroke, but they sure charge a lot for scanners. It's far more than a "scanner" It has a lot of options for additional info. In my Silverado I can monitor: EGT Turbo Boost ECT Trans Temp Battery VOltage Regen Status IAT Current gear that the trans is in Speed Engine RPM ...and a plethora of other things.

RE: 1st trailer... septic hookup questions

How do you know when tanks are full? Is there no tank monitor display panel?

RE: New Trailer Day!

... and choose a leveling system. You don't need to add anything, The Nash TTs have scissor style stabilizer jacks from the factory.

RE: No more full size cars from GM

"Retool to build electric pickups" Where's this so-called "electric pickup" that they are retooling for?

RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

Dually. Because it throws more snow when doing donuts in the abandoned parking lot

RE: So many closed topics!

Using fanboy to describe a group of males who are extreme fans of a certain brand is not name calling and it is not the same as calling a specific person a degrading name. The very definition of fanboy is a male who is extremely or overly enthusiastic fan of someone or something. So it is not name calling. Merriam-Webster Dictionary: Fanboy And there you go, you just say someone farted and the one who did wil immediately shoutl denying it!:B I did not deny anything. Nor did I ask the mods to close any threads. I am just stating that using the correct definition of the word fanboy for a group of brand fans in general is completely different than calling a specific person a degrading name. And they would clutch on and won't let go to move on. Like this forum is their life (maybe it is) or winter is too long and harsh in their state that this site becomes a therapy on their cabin fever. Also notice that they have comments on every topic.:B Who is "they" referring to? Just curious. As with those who deny they are the fart(er), and you feel alluded to, you might be the 'it' or one of 'em!:W I don't feel alluded to because it is not me, but you quoted my post while saying it so I was just curious on who you meant is all. Multiple nested quotes makes things really hard to follow............

RE: Ideas for carrying/securing open framed generator

HOLY THREAD RESURRECTION BATMAN. This thread is nearly 2.5 years old. A plastic yard tool box is a bit bulky to pack around in the back of my truck and use as a generator shelter / noise blocker

RE: Starlink supposedly will be available in 2020

I don't know why Timmac believes DirecTV or DISH killed his dog but it's time to get over it! Where is there information about a dog being killed?

RE: TT for full time living or negatives of trailer brands

I've literally rebuilt this thing from top to bottom. It is a good camper NOW! How did you proceed with rebuilding the walls, floor and roof? Did the factory supply you with new wall panels?

RE: Grease gun/ grease recommendations

Yes it will use a lot of grease the first time you do it, because the factory did not fill the voids in the hub. After the first time, it will take LESS grease than if you packed by hand. It shouldn't take more than 2 tubes the first time to do all 4 hubs. Buy 3 to be safe. Not a big expense. There is absolutely ZERO reason to totally pack a wheel hub full of grease. Even when following the instructions on proper EZ Lube technique, you still run the risk of blowing the grease past the inner seal once you jam the hub full of grease, then your brakes are shot. I've seen it happen. There;s a video I need to find and post.

RE: Overloaded wheel Breakage

First and foremost, the member that posted this link is not the one that bought wheels in that link. That link is a website run by MelloMike.

RE: Mileage observations

I tried one trip to drive 60 instead of my usual 70, It wasn’t worth it. Define what you mean by "it was not worth it"... Worth what? And what is the "it" that there was no "worth" being applied to?
trail-explorer 10/30/19 11:29am Tow Vehicles

You don't need to "pay off" the diesel upgrade. It pays back (sometimes with interest) when you sell the truck. Besides, who in the world buys a diesel because it's cheaper? You buy it because it does the job better and more comfortably. Ditto on all of the above. It's a lot less effortless towing with a diesel than a gas truck. I am not constantly managing my throttle application in anticipation of hills, etc.

RE: My Grand Design 320G came in!

Opted for pretty much all options, except for dual pane windows That would have been the most important option for me, and a lot of other people that camp in spring or fall, or wet weather.

RE: New AC problem

Installer says that the constant repeated cycling is not an issue. That some units do that. Seems abnormal to me. I don't think it's normal either. Seems like the installer is saying that because he isn't willing to troubleshoot and fix the problem, or replace the unit again.

RE: Done for the year. Video: I winterized my AF.

We leave the WH on all year. I tried that one winter, it made a significant impact on my electric bill. I stopped doing it after a few months and decided to winterize the RV.
