RE: Tires again

I always buy tires with the brand and date of the tires within a reasonable time frame and it has worked great for us. Having to buy tires out of town changes the story. You did great. chevman

RE: 3500 truck towing HT 5th wheel - Workable?

We tow an 11k lb GVW fiver with our F450. The truck makes towing the fiver pretty easy. We were coming back from Salt Lake City to NorCal via I-80 in heavy cross and headwinds. Semis were being moved about in their lanes. Sprinter vans were being blown half a lane over. But we had no issues at all other than poor fuel mileage due to fighting the heavy winds. At one point we saw over half a dozen dust devils around us. We must have traveled through one because I felt a sudden sharp jolt that felt like it wanted to move us over to the next lane. But we never did move. The truck and trailer were rock solid. At that point I was VERY thankful to be in our F450. Your story is an excellent reason for more truck than needed. chevman

RE: Tripod stabilizer

As I have said before because we sit for 6 months each winter we have the JT's and before installing them we had scrissor jacks installed just in front of the front tires. Plus the wind is not an issue for us. chevman

RE: Ram Sales Increasing

What happened to the false sales that were reported but not sold. Somebody was sueing for this reason. Maybe old news or another fake news story??? chevman

RE: Honda 2000: surprisingly poor oil fill tube design

our honda 1000i will get it's oil changed before we hit the road for Az. Not that hard but easy to have a little clean up. Not much of a chance It will be running but nice to keep it ready. chevman

RE: 2020 Eco Diesel

The GM engineer for the 3.0 Duramax reported the new diesel had a design life span of 150k miles. Ford made a lot of diesels that would not go that far! Which Ford made diesels? The one you love! Do we have to add trucks to Ford for you to understand? Maybe so... I still don't understand your point. As long as we are being silly what dodge diesel was made by dodge? chevman

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

All these beautiful trucks... then there's me... 2016 Kia Sorento towing a 19' Jayco Jay Flight around the Pacific Northwest and yes, we get strange looks. https://i.imgur.com/MTM7oI9l.jpg Howdy Towbo, We all started out somewhere, as one who has gone from why less then what you now have to the other extreme and I do mean extreme when it comes to tow vehicles and trailers, its not what you have but how much you ENJOY using it. Welcome to the forum. Dave Dave I am happy about your comments. I have said similar comments to rv'rs though the last years. chevman

RE: Old truck vs new truck

I had to deal with our 05 surging 2 winters ago in Az. Dealer and a local shop both said maybe 3 days to know the problem. In my mind I felt HPF regulator was the problem so the day I drove to the chev shop it was really surging and very soon I was told it is the HPF regulator. At this time I can't get over how sweet it runs. chevman

RE: Replacing Tires on my GMC

We have bought defenders for a GMC acadia and 2 sets of defenders for our dually 2 WD chebby truck. Drove to wash st in december 2 winters from Az. Bad road winter conditions both times and never spun a tire. Lots of michelin tires have had crack issues for years including MH's. We have had none. The 1st set was rated for 70K on the truck be replaced them at 50L. Nice even wear but tread was getting thin. I don't try to exend the miles because of towing. 50K was the warranty on the 2nd set. Nothing like fresh tires. Still waiting for a tire issue for us. Been driving for 62 years 'LUCKY' chevman

RE: Puzzling problem with Dish

We also had problems with a new tailgater and a walley receiver. Headed for Az from WA st and it was working great. Later i Casa Grande it needed to be programed and check switch every day. That sucked all winter so after calling dish and a dish outdoor tech the answer was I was on the wrong side of the road. Cable and postion on the rv were correct for their instuctions. I asked both dish ladies do you know what an rv is. The tailgater is sitting in my garage. Dish downloaded the software fix to late for me. chevman PS $2200.00 fix the problem
