RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

^^^^ 54k without the trailer,64k with the trailer.Rig pulls like a locomotive. With 12 gears you're engine is always going to be at an optimum rpm for whatever you're doing .... cruising, climbing or anything in between, but, when 64k meets a long 8% grade you'll be chugging up the hill right along side Cummins at 30-35 mph saying I think I can I think I can. locomotives tow very slow when I have watched them. Is this your meaning? chevman

RE: 3 Million Cummins for Ram

think about this How many engines has Cummins made for their customers not just Ram? chevman Very good point! Very many more than 3M! And most of them with a very good reliability record. :) reliability didn't work for my friend's Cummins. 28K miles and a $20,500.00 engine repair but his cat engine on the first MH had a cat shop do a repair and after it drank engine oil. 3 gallons on their trip to Az from Mi and same back in the spring. Both not normal stories but both true. chevman

RE: Ram overtakes GM

Could be because Chevy designers stay up nights trying the figure out new ways to make their truck UUUgly / FUGLY. No self respecting truck buyer would drive one of those things without a mask on. that is your opinion but your opinion doesn't matter to me. Just sayin. chevman

RE: Experience towing w/ 2WD F250, 2500 or other 3/4 ton

We are on our 4th 2WD tow vechicle and not once needed a 4x4 but if needed the 4x4 is better as we all understand. chevman

RE: No more GM diesels?!

He does not know that an electric motor is the real motor! For years we have confused an Internal Combustion Engine as a motor. Well we all know when a motor is called an engine what the meaning is. Ever hear when talking about power "we need more motor". Also our fat old fingers hit the wrong letter when typing and we all know the meaning. I know you have done this. So what seems important really is not. chevman

RE: Day 2 Lake Wenatchee * Leavenworth * RR Power Station * Golf

We have spent summer weekends at our Lake Wenatchee cabin since 1959 to 1994 and it is a beautiful lake or like the Bearing sea at times so now should be an awesome for camping in an RV. chevman

RE: 2017 Ram 2500- Airbag Question

I had LS install airbags on our dodge and a nice job but only kept that truck for 14K miles. My let down on LW was how they mounted tires and not knowing how use use the torque wrench. 2 local stores same issue. Discount tire and costco know the proper method here. chevman

RE: 2020 GMC HD in the Wild

I can’t trade. Still have a bunch of 1157, etc. bulbs to use up. I laughed way to hard at that. same for me on our 05 chev when one brake light didn't work. Found my bulbs to be prepared for when needed and what the heck is this bulb. Off to autozone. I was behind the times. chevman

RE: changed out MORyde steps

My wife would be scared to use that step style. maybe if younger. The handle looks like it wouldn't go out far enough but maybe the picture angle is the reason. Hope it is great for your needs. chevman

RE: 2020 Freightliner vs 3500 GMC Dually at the Ike

We see freightliners towing similar horse trailers going on I-10 because of lots of horse action in Az but the rv towing not really or as it used to be. Driving on I-90 yesterday and same look but smaller horse trailer with a 3500 GMC passed us. maybe a $100K model. all trucks are awesome now. chevman

RE: 2020 Freightliner vs 3500 GMC Dually at the Ike

Didn't the freightliner manufacture own both trucks and the MD is their own build so was it fixed or not. The bigger truck had to be the best because it had to be and it should. Awesome truck for on road use. chevman

larry barnhart 09/05/19 04:57pm General RVing Issues

I see our's everyday . I like to know how we are doing. I could take money out and buy a new chev truck but can't wear out the 05. Starting young is also my advice. chevman
