RE: PSI rating variables

Run all at their individual sidewall max if you must run the existing set. Set the pressure when cold. Before you roll and before the sun is on them.

RE: 12V or 6V

Yes Lithium or SiO2 with 200 amp rating is typically two batteries and is fine. I don't think these are on the radar. For what the Op is looking at I recommend 4+ batteries to properly drive 2000 watts.

RE: Torque Wrench for WD Hitch nylock nuts

Amazon has 3/4" 600# wrench for about $200.

RE: PSI rating variables

I would replace any tire not rated 80 psi or different size than the others.

RE: Maximum towing

Time is money with a semi and they seem to be OK with going slower up the hills. Why are we constantly in such a rush as an RV traveller....

RE: Maximum towing

Published truck capacity is one thing. Engine performance is another. Lotsa discussion about half ton trucks towing at capacity. My concern would be engine performance. I’ve been loaded heavy in a Dodge 2500, gas 5.7l, doing 25 mph in the right lane, engine “screaming”, getting passed by 18-wheelers doing 35. On the hills, I-80 in WY. There is no substitute for power. 7000# and up trailer, I’ll take the diesel. Cruise control set 65-70, long hills on I-15, UT, and watch it run. JMHO. PS My next truck will be a 3500 4x4 Ram Cummins ;)If you had the 1500 with same engine you would be 1000/1500 lighter and would be keeping up with the loaded semis.

RE: A three cylinder Bronco.....a THREE cylinder Bronco???

AutoTrader dealers are advertising a total of 234 Bronco Sport models, complete with VIN's.As an FYI... after checking in with those that have had their orders scheduled, apparently they then show up as “inventory” for their selected dealer. FAKE NEWS!!! :b DaveManufacturers with a dealer network record the sale as soon as the vehicle is built. Nothing new.

RE: 12V or 6V

Either way I recommend 4 batteries minimum if running a 2000 watt inverter anywhere close to capacity.

RE: 1/2 ton truck towing question

Some of these comments are interesting... If you can add an extra leaf spring to a 3/4 ton to give it the capability of a 1 ton, why can't you do the same to a 1/2 ton? So, the sticker on the door is no longer correct, doesn't mean the leaf spring isn't there doing its job. Yes, you do have to consider everything else to make the truck capable, like tires, engine cooler, maybe brakes. But those things might be easier than buying a new truck.Sure and most 3/4 and 1 ton SRW are very similar. Potentially you could go from the lowest rated 1/2 ton to the highest rated 1/2 ton vehicle if you changed all components that the factory swaps out. I suspect this will be a bit more involved than just a leaf spring.

RE: A three cylinder Bronco.....a THREE cylinder Bronco???

Oh, and speaking of getting out of rough conditions, I wonder how that 3-banger will fare with a whopping 190 lb ft of torque? (almost identical to that of a new 4-cylinder Camry!!)You only need tons of power if you want to climb a sand dune at high speed or maybe plough through a mud pit of some sort. I assume bronco has a 4 low selection when low speed high torque is needed. Too bad there is no 4 down towing available.

RE: 12V or 6V

I recommend the 6v GC2 if you are spending money to have two batteries. Most Costco and Sams club have good value GC2 batteries.

RE: charge house battery from TV

What do I need to do to be able to charge my house battery from the TV generator while traveling during the dayAssuming all is working as designed just connect and drive. If you want to verify all is working get out your voltmeter and observe if the trailer battery voltage rises as you plug the connector into the running truck. Charging is fairly slow. If you are really relying on getting a full charge while you drive 4 to 6+ hours consider a DC-DC charger to get the right voltage on the trailer battery. Best to get the 20 amp.

RE: Time to retire the 7.3 OBS?

Forget the engine out repair. Fix the current fuel issue to get it running and see what you think in January. And when you do go in next year consider an independent shop. I would clean the engine and just fix what actually leaks... maybe. Save your money and cash for possibly the final RV.

RE: A three cylinder Bronco.....a THREE cylinder Bronco???

Had my doubts. I asked since this is the dinghy forum.

RE: Asking for a friend

Probably help to post what RV he has and even better a picture of the bypass configuration.

RE: 12 volt DC not charging on shore power.

To get through the trip consider getting a portable automatic battery charger. Need minimum 5 amp rating and 10+ amps is better. Put it direct on the battery terminals and let it run. Don't forget an extension cord if needed.

RE: A three cylinder Bronco.....a THREE cylinder Bronco???

I liked my Geo Metro with the 1.0 3 banger. Cruise control with skiies on top was to just keep the peddle on the floor for maybe 70/75 mph. Solid 50 mpg no matter how you drove it. 240,000 mostly trouble free miles. Does Bronco tow four down?

RE: 1/2 ton truck towing question

“GM has a few 1500 setups that also would tow a trailer of this weight fine.“ I wouldn’t be comfortable at 10,000 pounds with any GM half ton.If the truck rating is sufficient I would have no hesitation for all conditions.

RE: GM’s official run at Tesla starts with its E Hummer debut.

Sandy Munro is saying 3,500 payload and 11,000 tow rating.
