RE: Towing Grand Cherokee with Gas Ford V10

We tow a 13 Ford Explorer 4WD. Weighs around 5k with 4 bikes and kayaks. I’ve towed into the Colorado Rockies and in the eastern mountains. The V-10 performs good, a tune from 5 star will make perform great! I towed out west without a tune and in the east with a tune. While the factory program does OK, the tune really wakes it up. You will know you have 5k lbs behind you, but it will pull it no problem. Always use the tow/haul mode towing or not.

RE: Question for class A and C people with toads!

I guess I don't understand since we don't ever stay 1 night at a RV Park. We can dry camp for 1 night. So, why do you even need to drag out sewer hoses for 1 night? I assume your black and gray tanks are bigger than 5 gallons. Right for 1 night it’s not an issue. But for a place we are at for a few days it’s fine. But the night before I leave, I have to dump the tanks, move the coach forward, put the slides back out and relevel, then I can connect the car. We leave early in the morning. Like I said, it’s a simple thing to do when laying out a campground.

RE: Question for class A and C people with toads!

Yes I could disconnect the toad, but as has been said, when staying for the night it’s the reason I got a pull through! Some of these resorts are just that. One was a high end resort that was 2 years old. If we weren’t in the area for a wedding for a couple days I would’ve been very upset. It’s really not that hard or expensive to put a T underground and another 10 or 20FT section of 3” PVC pipe with an elbow to move the outlet forward to make it useable for everyone!

RE: Question for class A and C people with toads!

Yes, I carry extra sewer hoses. I’ve used them once and it was for a 40ft run. Not doing that again. If they just went one extra step and installed a second centrally located connection it would make it easier. Maybe I’m getting lazier as I get older, but maybe I’m also paying attention to poorly laid out sites!

Question for class A and C people with toads!

Has anyone noticed more and more lately of poorly located sewer connections. Most are located at the rear of a pull through, far enough back the toad would be left in the road. And some of these are high end resorts. It’s like they forgot that a MH has its connection in the middle of the rig which is farther forward than a TT or 5th wheel. Now some places are smart and have 2 or 3 connections to choose based on the RV location.

RE: Tire age?

Just judging by the name, I would replace them now!

RE: Rocky Mountain National Park

I’ll second Sun Outdoors Granby CO (was River Run RV Resort. Very close to RMNP and the very nice little town of Grand Lake which you go through to the park. It’s also close to Winter Park to the south.

Blue Ox True Center issue.

Wondering if anyone still has this steering stabilizer. Mine came with it and I love it because you can recenter the steering when you have crosswinds or crowned roads. But just recently mine started to not hold the centered position anymore. If I press the button it centers, but then after a mile or so it reverts back to being off center. Curious if anyone has dealt with this. IDE hate to replace it with a standard stabilizer. Looking for advice.

RE: UP with hookups

Check out Munising Tourist Park Campground on Lake Superior! Munising MI in the UP. Right on the shore. They have new FHU sites on the water as well as W/E only.

RE: Ram 1500 owners…Hemi & 3.92s?

To reiterate the question in more simple terms, how handily will a 3.92 geared Hemi blow the doors off a 3.21 geared Hemi? Apparently...it won't. Wow! To say I’m surprised would be an understatement! Thank you for that! Can’t imagine the tires making that much difference. They must just work as good with the higher gears! That’s because the 3.92 truck had larger diameter tires. So in the end the ratios were very close.

RE: Ram 1500 owners…Hemi & 3.92s?

I have a 16 Ram 1500 Hemi with 3.21’s I don’t tow with it, but it move very well for its size! As far as the MDS, it is very seemless. You have to really be honest in to tell when it kicks in. FWIW right now, I just had a lifter start ticking. So I need to tear into that and hopefully the cam is still good! I’m a Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram tech. So I know these things fairly well!

RE: Cummins vs Hummer Towing 6,000 lbs

Believe it or not this little air deflector gained me .5mpg towing my TT. It helped get the air up and over the front of the trailer. The absence of dead bugs on the front of the TT proved that. https://i.ibb.co/Chq9bMm/506-F468-F-D0-B6-4012-B11-B-FC7-F37736708.jpg

RE: dc to DC Renogy charger

I think we are missing something here! You keep taking about the solar and the dc to dc charger, as the solar is hooked up to the dc to dc. As far as I know they are 2 different ways of charging. The solar should go directly through the mppt solar charger to the batteries and the dc to dc should be hooked up from the alternator to the house batteries. We need a better/exact explanation of your system.

RE: Can 'O Worms: how long can I expect my 5er to last?

Not using it is worse than using it!

RE: Shopping new tires - is my shop confused or am I?

I would take a hard pass on any Michelin tire. Look for an E rated tire in another name brand. I had Generals on my Excursion and was very happy with them. What happened with Michelin? On these forums they are usually considered one of the best brands.Yeah - Michelins are our go to tire now - and we have been buying tires for a looooong time. Same here. Been using Michelin for over 30 years on my trucks and my wife's various cars and SUVs and never any problem with any of them. And great mileage from them also. Yep same here. Every one I have had and have seen is dry rotted and cracked after 3 years, so much so I wouldn’t trust them. And I sure wouldn’t spend the money on one. Oh well, data point of 1 that had bad luck.

RE: Yellowstone roads closed!

NPS instituted timed entry at one point on a non-through route(slough creek) to control/limit traffic so that some could visit while major construction was underway. It was in place for about a month and was a complete non-issue. It seems the NPS on the ground modified the implementation as they found they weren't completely overwhelmed w traffic. So, I can just drive in when I want in the summer? they put an end to that when Covid started. and they kept it in place because they charge a couple of dollars for each timed entry. I know you hate paying (yeah you've already paid your taxes :R), but if you really gave AF you could easily research what was actually happening yourself before you make stuff up to suit your world view and then post it. Well last I read was the NP service is keeping the timed entry for the busy parks, and yes they do charge and “let” you enter at the times they have left. They said they were going to keep this indefinitely. I Never said Yellowstone only. But as busy as YS is, I’m sure that NP will be next on the list, it’s only a matter of time before they realize how much money they are missing out on.

RE: Cummins vs Hummer Towing 6,000 lbs

Well the guy I used to work with claimed 25mpg towing his enclosed car hauler after he deleted and tuned it…….so there’s that!

RE: Cover for camper while in storage? Yes/no?

I stored ours outside under an Addco cover for almost 7 years. when we traded it in the guy at the dealership couldnt believe it was 13 years old. it looked better than some 2 year old Tt`s. Yes, covering it makes a huge difference, it protects the roof as well.

RE: Yellowstone roads closed!

Well that’s good to hear. And there were people saying parts of Yellowstone wouldn’t be open for years! Too bad you can’t get in without a special timed entry. That isn’t what the NPS was designed to do. But if it’s making money!……
