RE: Dodge Hurricane Engine Patent

Went to class last year on it. The turbo isn't cast into the head. They are using a cast in manifold which then the turbo bolts to the head or both turbos. We’ve only seen 2 come in off the transport so far. Not a lot yet. So we will see. You must have fallen asleep. The patent drawings show a cylinder head with the housing as one. Good luck with that! Hurricane head

RE: Ford 10R vs Allison 10L

RE: Broken Frame on a RAM 3500

IDK, I would suspect the frame to be the last thing to fail when over loaded. Tires/wheels first, then axle followed by springs etc. Had my 03 GMC 2500 overloaded with my Bigfoot camper and boat for many years with no failures. More RAM frame failures Broken frames

RE: Broken Frame on a RAM 3500

Now all of a sudden everybody's a weight police. "Oh he was 10lbs over GVWR! That's why his frame broke!" Did you notice the post from someone with the same truck? CCC is 4738#. The owner of the broken truck had a camper with a base weight of 5000#. Water and propane bring that to 5500#. Accessories are not included. We can see solar, awnings and a roof rack. I can't see if there is an A/C unit or a generator neither are in the base weight. At a minimum the weight will be 6000#. That does not include the bikes or rack, tools, kitchen gear, food, bedding, air compressor and personal items very likely totally well over 1000#. Best guess is this unit was in the range of 7000-7500# or roughly 2500-3000# over the CCC. In addition there is clearly an issue with center of gravity. Sadly beginners and often experienced truck camper users often fail to realize how heavy their rigs are. "Conventional wisdom" on this forum is, NONE OF THAT MATTERS! Axle's rated for 11K! Nobody's ever broken a frame! Telling someone they needed a 4500-5500 class truck to carry a camper like that got you ostracized as a worry wart, weight police, fun-hating SQUARE. This thread just oozes with HYPOCRISY. DING DING DING, we have a winner! This is so true.

RE: 2023 Ford RV and Trailer Towing Guide

I've always liked how Ford publishes a document every year that tells you everything you need to know about towing with their vehicles or towing them, whether it's trailer, four-down, dolly, whatever. The other OEMs offer some kind of guide but nothing as comprehensive in one document. With GM you just have to look in the door jamb to see the exact ratings for that truck.

RE: Truck starts on its own

WOW.... toedtoes, this thread is becoming an educational event. That After Run System is for sure not a normal vehicle thing. First, does everyone read the manual that closely? Second, not knowing all the background on Busdrivers situation, could there be a temp sensor malfunction and it engage the After Run System? Wonder how many dealers even know about such a feature. Then comes the, if equipped. Not sure if GM still uses the RPO code feature, but how does one know if your truck has this After Run System feature? Yeah, it really surprised me too. And I suspect most dealerships don't know about it. For many owners, it would probably never happen. But for RVers, this is a BIG deal. I wonder how many folks think they must have hit their fob when the truck actually activated this feature. Well, Busdriver doesn't have the after run system as his truck is a 2019. The after run system was introduced for the 2020 model year. If this happened the one time and I had my key's in my pocket while I was snoozing on the couch, sure wouldn't be posting about it... Get on with life.
