RE: Shock question. Please point me in the right direction

Had Bilsteins on my Tundra and they were awesome. For my 2500 Cummins RAM I went with Rancho 9000XL with the adjustable dampening knob. Haven’t done a camping trip yet but one is right around the corner. We shall see.

RE: AUDI Q5 for towing

Need to know your cargo carrying capacity of the Q5. Max tow weight does not mean much without knowing the CCC of the vehicle.

RE: All Aluminum RVs

Look at commodity prices and look at who makes aluminum Trailers. Now look at the price tag.

RE: Tow Vehicle Tire Pressure

“”You, DON'T account for heat. The engineers have already done that. You always set them cold. If they are at correct pressure, the heat buildup is normal. Now, if one gets low that will create excess heat that can raise the pressure to the point of a blowout. Mark”” I do not agree. The manufacturer list the MAX pressure on their side wall. Granted they usually say cold, but anyone who thinks they engineered all road temperature conditions, I have a bridge across the Grand Canyon I’ll sell you. Set to 80 PSI then drive through Yuma on a 120 degree day, bad idea. I’ve aired to 80 PSI then hit the road and observed 86 PSI, which I’m good with, but where I live the temperature (and more importantly) the asphalt gets so hot it starts to melt. You can’t just air to max (cold) and take off, because you need to compensate for the time of year and where you are heading.

As the trailer cools down the Dometic will switch to the next lower fan speed. As the trailer heats up it advances to the next higher speed. This is normal operation.

RE: Tow Vehicle Tire Pressure

When you air them up to their max, remember to account for heat. Aired mine to 77 PSI (rated for 80 PSI max). Coming back from a camping trip the display showed they were 88 PSI. Pulled over and lowered to 80 PSI. Account for heat!!!

RE: ? About a particular TT

Some manufacturers list the delivered weigh as configured. Jayco is one.

RE: Backing up a trailer like a boss

Backing up a trailer fast is not impressive. It is contrary to the real world and safety. JMO

RE: 04 Chev 1500 as a tow vehicle 8000lb camper

I’d say tow it for a while and see how it goes. Try Salt River Canyon :). Tomorrow that is where I’m going. —> https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/26444044.cfm

RE: Tow Vehicle

It almost always comes down to vehicle cargo carrying capacity over gross trailer weight. My CrewMax was rated for 10,400 lbs which is great, but the cargo was 1,387 lbs which is anemic. Once the hitch got lowered I was always over on the cargo. They all love to advertise off the gross tow rating but at the end of the day, check the cargo.

RE: 04 Chev 1500 as a tow vehicle 8000lb camper

Going from a Tundra to my current truck and experiencing similar tow weights, I’ll say that is a LOT of trailer, especially for an older 1/2 ton which lacks the towing capacity of the newer 1/2 ton trucks. The Nissan HD with the 5.0 CTD is one 1/2 that would tow that trailer fine. Unfortunately it cost as much as my RAM, so maybe not so good.

RE: Tow Vehicle

It is simply not a good idea to be over, but tow with what you have and see how it goes. Once you’re in the wind, or a semi passing you, you’ll know. Once you have to go through a mountain pass with steep upgrades and downgrades your mind will be made up. Your not so far over it’s dangerous as long as you give yourself some room and time. For me it took several thousand miles of varied terrain and I knew.

RE: Tow Vehicle

Usually the cargo carrying capacity of the tow vehicle is the killer. My Tundra was well within the CVW of the trailer, but with only 1,387 in cargo capacity, the truck I was alway a few hundred over every time we towed.

RE: Medical marijuana

I’m fine with medical pot, but frankly this is a personal matter and does not belong on a trailer forum. Do what you want, but don’t ask folks across the country if they think you’re going to get busted on something that might be illegal in a particular state. Just like carrying a gun, its a personal choice that you need to make. You know its legal in some states and in others it is not. You take the responsibility and live with your decision, but leave the rest of us out of it.
