RE: Filtering Our Diesel Storage Tanks For on Road Use

Good vacation spots don't necessarily mean it's an ideal place to live. Maybe maybe not. Beautiful on a sunny day for sure. chevman

RE: RV wind deflectors do they work we will see

Now, now, he said he didn't want to start a big discussion about his, ahem, 14+ mpg towing a 13,000 lb. trailer. Those overhead consoles can be pretty optimistic. I've seen mine show 99 mpg. :) Yea sorry aboot that. ;) If 14 was possible every truck towing would have one. chevman

RE: Not bad for 11 years and 240,000 miles.

We were coming home from California towing our 35 ft alpenlite fifthwheel North on the Siskiyou's going down a steep area under full control because of the Allison and the 8.1 gas engine and saw coming to pass us was a 1st gen with a camper. wind was blowing also so as it went by us I was thinking it was going to hit us because it was out of control and wandering badly plus big time body roll . Not as big of camper as the posts above. chevman

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

Let's make this perfectly CLEAR. The trans in the current GM's are only "BRANDED ALLISON". Makes me all warm and fuzzy. RAM has a Chrysler trans and AISIN MD trans. Ford has its own HD trans. No smoke and mirrors with either of them. I have owned many GM trannies. Never had any issues with any of them. 2 allisons and still have one with no issues. Just my experience for many years. chevman I am assuming yours is actually built by Allison? To be clear I am not saying anything bad about the current GM trans it's just a bit deceiving. yes 2001 8.1 3500 dually and the present 2005 duramax dually. Had two turbo 400's one for the 454 and the surprise was the 1986 light 1/2 ton with the V-6 and 2.53 rear gear. Kinda forgot if the 2.53 is correct but something like that and not a 3.73 for sure. Always seemed to be odd but it worked ok. chevman

RE: 2023 Ford 40k towing, 500hp, 1200tq

Not if diesel isn't available. No towing maybe. chevman Larry, some days I wish I was your age so I could get up and give zero forks about what happens to anything with the economy or worldwide! Hopefully the mid terms next week will restore a bit of normalcy in coming months. Right now, if Sleepy/Sniffy Joe won't buy erl from the Ruskys and doesn't quit selling our oil all while being anti pertroleum, chit could get pretty chort. We are both heading for 82 but if my wife's health hadn't gone south we would be south to AZ before Sept ended. I really do care for what others need to have a happy life. Maybe it will happen next week. chevman The Nor Easters who still have their stinky oil burners in their homes are already down for about a 30% price hike to keep the frost in the freezer and the faucets thawed this winter....sad really, for people of power to intentionally try to tank their own economy... But what do I know...took the dear wife for a followup appointment today from yet another major surgery and the PA had some funky blue haired wig on for Halloween. That's cool and in the spirit. Walked out into the hall afters and immediately offended a couple woke teenagers that only answered to "they or their" AND their mother when I said "Cool Halloween Costumes" Apparently the Orange and Pink haired "theys" weren't dressed for Halloween and the boy's t!ts were real! :E

RE: 2023 Ram Reveal

My answer to why if you won't buy one is I like to know what other brands are doing and why they are doing it. I never know enough of anything. chevman

RE: Quality control?

Old news. What surprises me is only 1/2 of what you looked at had issues, that tells me you didn't look hard enough. The RV Industry produces junk across the board. "High end" means nothing. The term Quality Control does not exist in the RV Industry's vocabulary except for BS they put on brochures and websites. The kicker is they've gotten worse over the last 2-4 years, which took a lot of work. I agree about old news. I entered a tiffin MH years ago with a side door entry and first thing that caught my eye was a L shaped kitchen cabinet was so out of plumb the part on the driver's side was tight to the ceiling and went down quickly towards the front so the side on the inside wall matched the same issue. Touching at the bottom of the wall and big gap at the top. I have installed many cabinets, so I eye always looks for goof ups. I have helped MH friends' for year's repair inside issues and cheap was most of the reasons 20 winters of 6 month stays so I was a favorite of many. chevman

RE: Why not jack trailer under the spring plates?

I made a trailer aid for our Alfa ideal. Jacked that tire high into the wheel well and the other tire was still on the ground. Chevman

RE: Time for new tires already?

We had a new dodge with good year wranglers' tires. At an rv park in Spokane the same truck as ours towing a fifth came next to us. his truck was full of heavy duty tools as he was going to repair road equipment. fifth was loaded so when he told me the good year wrangler tire were junk and only had 58K miles on them I looked and the tires looked great. lots of thread so maybe not as bad as he wanted them to be. Way overloaded truck. chevman

RE: what size inverter.

We had a 2000 watt inverter in our 2001 Alpenlite with 4 batteries. I would not want less than 2000 watts. chevman
