RE: Battery replacements in 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel

Ten nuts or bolts on my Ram using four different size sockets and a step stool. It was harder than my previous Ford, but can be done. Is the GM that much worse?

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Is that for testing your truck window?

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I miss tactile buttons and knobs that your fingers can feel rather than having to look where to place your finger on a smooth screen. Ford did a better job of applying varying textures on their buttons rather than making them all the same like my Ram.

RE: Cybertruck has 400 horses

Electric canal boats: Electric canal boats in the UK. The charging infrastructure has been there many years in that area. Vigor is making/retrofitting hybrid ferries for WA state which may eventually turn to fully electric. There are smaller passenger ferries running that are fully electric and the Danes have put the first small vehicle ferry into use.

Waiting for EV boat from Tesla, lol. Why are you waiting? Plenty of electric trolling motors and battery choices have been available for years. width=640

Eliminate the expensive infotainment system in vehicles today and you reduce 25 percent of the issues reported...

RE: Shock Absorbers

This why I liked the Rancho adjustable shocks. They were less expensive than going with King or some other high end model, but allowed the owner to adjust them. Once I had mine tuned to my setup, I did not change them unless I knew I was going to drive the truck unloaded for an extended period (not common for me).

RE: Shock Absorbers

I swapped out my shocks when I went to the heavier 19.5" wheels. The OEM Ford shocks still damped the compression stroke after 100k miles but did nothing on rebound.

RE: My (our) Ultimate Truck Camper Body Build

It kind reminds of the yard sales you see on the side of road when people need to access the spare tire inside of their car but they have the rear of car filled past the windows...

RE: My (our) Ultimate Truck Camper Body Build

My two lower boxes carry battery banks. The two upper boxes on the passenger side carry outdoor kitchen and outdoor furniture. The two upper boxes on the driver side carry RV hookup and wash supplies and tools/maintenance items.

RE: Shock Absorbers

Rancho RS9000X shocks on my dually. I was also happy these on my F250.

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

With 2wd and an empty truck bed, you could only do better if you aired the tires down more. Otherwise, you have to carry more weight in the back so the front does not become an anchor. If it only cost you $40 to get pulled out, you were lucky that someone was there and you did not have call a tow service. I could see one tug costing you $200...

RE: Cybertruck has 400 horses

I have five vehicles built between 1957 and 2009 with carburetors. They are easy to repair, but require more cleaning and have to be rejetted when I travel between sea level and over 5000+ ft elevation.

RE: Cybertruck has 400 horses

I want the Cybertruck to be able to do that Land Rover Defender roll over into a steep ravine -- and when it landed upright, just continued nonchalantly on its way. Well, it won’t flood it’s carburetor or hydro lock it’s engine in the upside down positions Carburetor? Are you still in the seventies? ICE’s can be built to run inverted, aircraft have been doing it for many decades. You are using the wrong fuel. LPG conversions solved that a long time ago while still using carburetors.

RE: Need advice on towing cargo trailer

I have a 20' cargo trailer and it weighs 3000lbs empty. You should be fine with that as I doubt you will have more than 2000lbs of furniture. The issue that you may have is that the tongue weight on my trailer is over 600lbs empty. I would suggest putting the heavy furniture towards the rear to keep the tongue weight around 500lbs. Without a tongue scale, you won't actually know if the tongue weight is correct though. My 20' cargo is about 3500 lbs dry and rated 10,000 lbs. Typically I am loaded up between 6000-8000 lbs with close to 1000 lbs tongue weight. You will be at the limits of your motor home but should be close based on the furniture you are carrying. If you have not bought the trailer yet, look into aluminum frame versions which will cost more but be 500-1000 lbs lighter for the same weigh rating. I did a round trip NC - WA trip last April to clear out an estate and was carrying about 2500 lbs of furniture and household goods in my trailer, yet I was only loaded up inside less than half high.

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

At the height of outbreaks we stayed within a fuel tank full of our home and brought everything with us but still continued to travel. This allowed us to isolate but not have to stay in place. Last weekend was our first time out to a restaurant for chowder and beer. We now spend money in visiting areas but still are careful about keeping things clean and distancing ourselves from groups. This weekend, we will spend more time around people but with caution. It is time to engage with humanity again...

RE: What's your experience with Good Sam Roadside Assistance?

I currently have an issue with them failing to provide service for a street plated vehicle because it was not in their database (they are failing to even follow up with me). In the past they have helped me out but they can be slow to dispatch help. When my wife had a no start issue with her car in hot weather and her mother was along, it could have been a health safety issue had there not been a local business in which to take shelter...

RE: Brophy Tie Downs?

It is easy to move the inserts between trucks, but the actual mounts are very specific so they can be a no drill or weld application for your model and year truck. I left the tie downs and receiver on my F250 when I bought the 5500 rather than trying to find a buyer, but I did keep the turnbuckles and receiver extension. Get the model number of the install kit you need and search the local and national ads to see if you get any hits.

RE: Closest to Pantry Conversion any Good Examples?

Remember anything with slides will need a locking stop to prevent movement when you are in motion. It can be an automatic latch or a transport pin that is removed once stationary.
