RE: Idle/Drive Ratio

Absolutely. We do oil and filters every 250 hours. Axles and trans every 750.

RE: Idle/Drive Ratio

Just to throw a wrench into the mix. This is on a piece of equipment I drive at work. Idle: 496 hours Drive: 366 hours You mean this is a truck I "IDLE AT WORK" It's actually a telescopic forklift and the idle hours are so high because most of the time your not actually moving much while working. Setting trusses on a third floor could be 2 minutes of driving in and 15 minutes of jockeying the package in just the right position and then repeat that 47 times per phase X 14 phases per jobsite. Setting beams is another procedure where idle hours build up. All the hooking and unhooking is all idle time and condo buildings will have 25-50 beams per floor. There are days though where idle is near zero. Unloading lumber trucks, organizing the materials and units and moving them out to where they need to be is a full day of full throttle. My truck doesn't count hours. Hell it doesn't even have a computer in it.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Guess I'll switch mine out before I get assaulted at the campground.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

I have a few kits from different manufacturers but the Ryobi stuff lives in the trailer. I use the impact on 2 for the jacks.

RE: On the road observations

I tow at 55-70. If I am a hazard get your own road.

RE: Four (4) Row Radiators? Gimmick or Blessing?

I bought a aluminum radiator from one of the bigger aftermarket companies. Thankfully I saved my OE Dodge one because after a month it started to leak so just had the factory one re-cored and put it back in. Figure I have a $600 spare that will get my by if something happens.

RE: Bought a second truck.

I get offers on my Mustang somewhat often. One was $14k in cash unsolicited. Don't think I would have the cojones to knock on someomes door with a bag full of money asking if a car is for sale. What a idiot. Like the boat give them a number that is high enough if they say Yes your walking away with more than you thought you could ever get.

RE: Keeping fridge door open while in storage

I'd be more worried about someone moving my trialer without me there than my door possibly closing on its own.

RE: 2.7l Silverado, 7,200 lb TT Vs Monteagle

Keep up with the oil changes and cool downs and she will last. If not that's what the warranty is for.

RE: What load capacity should a ladder have for A/Cs?

When I put the Atwood on our first trailer I grabbed some pallets and trash 2X4 and built staging in the back of my truck that was parked as close as possible to the trialer. If I remember it was only two levels to get it up on the roof. The wife and I lifted it into the truck, then up one level, then we stood on the first level and lifted it to the second and finally up on the roof.

RE: Not a good week for Ford

Our friends have a brand new F450 Class C 4x4 diesel that has been recalled for two issues. One was a sprag clutch in the transmission.

RE: Replace air conditioner

YouTube will help. If it is a non-ducted rooftop AC it's not much more than removing four bolts and undoing the electrical connection after you take the trim piece off the bottom. Before putting on the new one you'll use a new gasket and tighten everything down and hook the wires back up and you're done.

RE: Slide design by Grand Design

Changing lines won't change sequence. Lightest or least resistance goes out first. Heaviest last. Same on retraction lightest first heaviest last. Pump is pushing fluid to all 3 cylinders at the same time. Not sure if used anymore but some units a few years back had a manifold near the hyd pump with manual valves you could block off individual slides. Retractable Landing gears of older airplanes and war birds are similar. If you've ever watched a landing gear transit it can be anything but smooth sometimes as the gear with the least resistance at the time moves then the other. They also didn't put any bigger of a pump than necessary for weight concerns

RE: What is your speed uphill?

I tow a 30' Toy Hauler filled with 3 dirt bikes, 100G water, generators, fire wood, fuel, ect and with my old truck on uphills I have to drop it out of overdrive so tend to be around 45-55mph uphill. Our trailer has flipped axels and while it pulls fine at 65 it tends to get a bit squirrelly so I don't push it even on the flats.

RE: Would $7 per gal effect your RV lifestyle?

Gas prices and Inflation will effect how I vote but not if I travel.

RE: Towing mileage/capability

A 90s era dodge diesel pickup would tow better and give better mpg. That TT has too much frontal area for a Traverse or similar with v6, based on my experience with a Highlander. Is what I use and daily drive, a 1992 Dodge D250 5spd. No computers, no sensors, no smog check. Just a engine, a battery and a key. Few years ago we pulled a 18' toy hauler over 4,000 miles and nailed down 14.68 MPG hand calculated. There are many things you give up though with older vehicles. Safety is the big one.
