RE: 1 ton truck and AF 990?

19.5" rims/tires would make the load alot more stable. Check Craigslist.

RE: New laptop for an old guy

I prefer Toshiba. However, given the specs that seems to be a decent buy. I would not get anything below i5 chip.

RE: Free oil changes gimmick.

I know a guy who bought a left over 1993 Dodge Cummins in early 1994. They offered lifetime oil changes to get him to buy it. Every time he goes in they really try to get him to buy something else. He's now at 22yrs of free oil changes.

RE: Curt front receiver F250

Just had to remove my Curt Front Hitch. It won't work with my ARB front bumper. No problem with the Curt.

RE: air bags vs air bags with tank

Does the new 3500 have overload springs? Have you considered bump stop extension to engage the overload springs sooner?

RE: Who all carries a DRONE while RVing?

Thought about buying a drone. My concern is after three or four flights I'll move on leaving an expensive paper weight.

RE: First Post, First TC!

Our previous TC had the bed access doors. We stored spare boot, shoes and bottled water in the access area. It was very convenient.

RE: Gluten Free recipes

Udi brand has some great Gluten free products. I just recently had to go Gluten Free. Some restaurants have Gluten free products listed on their website. You will be surprised how many items have Gluten in it. Many Teriyaki places have Gluten. Almost anything deep fried. Do not trust Potlucks. Eat before you go. People will say they used no bread. They may admit to using bread crumbs if you very specifically ask the correct magic question. The teenager behind the counter is the worst person to ask for Gluten ingredients.

RE: We RV'd because of the dog

We also planned all of our trips around the dogs. After they passed away we had about one year of no pups. The first trip I had no idea what to do with myself. Daughter then started asking for a dog. I'm back to early rise and late night walks. Because of the greenbelt area around the house I was happy to have a dog around the house. The presence of a dog keeps the rats away. This also means RV trips only. No air travel in our immediate future.

RE: Which is safer, truck / trailer or motorhome?

Here's the result of a accident days ago involving a Greyhound bus. We have seen similar accidents involving all kinds of RVs, including trucks that haul them. Surely you've seen pictures in your hometown of trucks in accidents. Many don't escape those either. Basically, no vehicle is safe in an accident. Safe travels everyone! http://www.mercurynews.com/bay-area-news/ci_29403514/two-people-killed-when-bus-overturns-south-san The Greyhound bus in the pictures looks in much better shape than any Class A RV accident pics I've seen.

RE: How to stream video while on the road

Amazon does allow download for offline use for some programs. Mhl adapter works on almost everything except NFL network.

RE: TV Fuel Pump

Running on empty also sucks up any sediment into the pump.

RE: free camping Cali/Oregon border?

Seven Feathers Canyonville Casino was a good stop for up to 5 nights (we usually only stay 1 or 2 nights personally). Our last 6 week trip throughout Washington, Oregon, California we made excessive use of Casinocamper.com for reviews, and googled nearest casinos along our routes as we travelled each day. Have found these feel better staying overnight lately when travelling moreso than Walmart's. Of course this is assuming no public lands available close by which are typically our first choice for several days stay. Seven Feathers is really nice. Prices are great too. Didn't know if that was too far from the border.

RE: free camping Cali/Oregon border?

There are some decent RV parks near Redding. Not free. We have stayed at Walmart, rest stops and Flying J in the past. Hard to relax and sleep. RV parks have power for quiet AC operations. We are trying a new place on the next trip. Near Shasta Dam

RE: Pros/cons of Host vs Arctic Fox

We bought a then new 2008 AF. It had one minor manufacturing problem the dealer quickly fixed no questions asked. No experience with Host. We have camped in hot and cold weather. Insulation was top notch. Factory Kenwood stereo was low grade. Upgraded to a better Kenwood. Check both to see what style/design best fits your truck and lifestyle. Take time to sit in both and look around.

RE: my front right wheel wiggles... F250

I have not done a unit bearing on a Ford. Looking at Rockauto the quality units appear to be $230+ and up. On other manufacturer vehicles I've used the power steering to quickly remove the unit bearing with minimal effort. On install I use lots of anti seize on all metal to metal surfaces. The next time you take out the unit bearing will only take a few minutes. Rock Auto link http://www.rockauto.com/info/196/BR930421-1.jpg

RE: New Tow Vehicles - Ram 2500 CTD

Aftermarket EGT gauge. My EGT probe is installed preturbo. When it falls below 300 degrees I shutdown. There is some debate on installing the probe pre or post turbo. Part of the reason for the cooldown period is to make sure the engine oil that flows through the turbo does not keep cooking and leave deposits inside the turbo. The five minutes wait time you mentioned would also achieve 300 degrees or lower. If you purchase an automatic transmission it's a good idea to monitor this too. Stock or modified. Genosgarage.com is one of a few decent online places to purchase Dodge items.

RE: Battery charging problem

Agree with earlier comment. Lead acid batteries do not appreciate complete discharge. When bad they will not recover.
