RE: Chevy 8.1 truck with low miles?

I had an 2002 8.1l/Allison and loved the power and towing capabilities. It had about 85,000 miles on it and thought I would never get rid of it. Then I got a 15,000lb trailer. The gas mileage didn’t go down much but my average traveling mph did and the truck did not like hills like it used to the 10,000lb trailer. Our new L5P Duramax is a dream pulling our trailer and I don’t miss the old truck as much as I thought I would. Also, I don’t miss the older technology, the small gas tank and especially the engine noise level at 3200 rpm. These new trucks are so quiet.....

RE: Toyhauler with outdoor kitchen

Are you looking at a TT or a fifth wheel? Don’t know about a TT but the Jayco Talon 392 has an outdoor kitchen in the 2018 and 2019 models. It’s the 385t in the 2020 model. It takes away garage space which can be a real negative depending on what you put in there.

RE: Setting the Trailer Brake Controller

Yes they are drum brakes. I did drop the gain down to 6 and seemed to be doing fine. Took the trailer on a trip and checked the drum temps and 3 of the 4 were around 150 and the 4th drum was closer to 170 degrees. All 4 brakes were changed out. Drums and all. Jayco replaced them under warranty and I had a Camping World do the work. It was a very good Camping World experience.

Setting the Trailer Brake Controller

When setting the trailer brake controller, how much pull is acceptable on the TV when braking? I ask cause I went through a set of trailer brakes in 1,600 mile, most of which were highway miles. The gain on the factory brake controller was set at 8. During the travels, I felt the trailer pull the truck when braking but ending recall the trailer tires locking up. With the new brakes, I’ve lowered the gain to 7. In my short travel, I do t feel the tug on the tv when breaking and don’t feel pushed either. Just wondering if I should go lower on the gain. The trailer is a 40’ 5th wheel toy hauler scaled at 15,000lbs being pulled by a 1 ton srw duramax. Thanks
