RE: Dream Cybertruck mods

My dream Mod would be whatever it took to be able to two a minimum of 500 miles per day and recharge off marginal 30A rv park power.

RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

For me Single is the best

RE: Upgraded my tow vehicle, do I still need a WDH?

Is the 410 tongue weight something you have measured or the factory number? If it is the factory number it is likely around 600 pounds as they do not include batteries or propane tanks and propane in that figure.

RE: 100K miles

The 5.9 is based on the 12 Valve which has been around since 1983 I believe. It was designed to operate at 100% duty cycle all-day long in tractors and pumps. In trucks and highway vehicles you should get no less than 500,000 miles before major overhaul assuming all regular maintenance is done and the cooling system is maintained. Your concern more should be aimed at the transmission and all the systems and seals of the motorhome. The engine, while underpowered for your application is good.

RE: Pre trip routines

I check most fluid except trans and axle before heading out and then just engine oil at each fuel stop. Other than that I make absolutely sure I have a socket that fits the truck wheels and the trailer wheels, 6" extension and 1/2" breaker bar. When hitching trailer I double check everything and then do a walk around looking at each door lock and jack making sure they are locked and Up. Then roof vents closed, awning in UP position and arms strapped closed. Steps up and Door locked. Sewer cap on and valves closed. I only check air pressures first thing in the morning and don't fret if it's down a pound from all the previous mornings checks.

RE: Overloaded wheel Breakage

Cast wheels belong on grocery getters and mall crawlers. Looks mean nothing, infact if the style has more air than metal it's probably weaker than stock.

RE: Upgraded my tow vehicle, do I still need a WDH?

Try it without and see how she handles. Make sure to get on the highway and do a few bridge transitions and have a few rigs pass you to get a real life indication of if it's needed or not. My older bigger toy hauler I used a WDH but the new smaller one it's not needed. Have towed over 6,000 miles this year without one single issue in all kinds of weather on all kinds of roads including that pos 285 out of Carlsbad. That road could be used to check the weld integrity of hitches spring perches! Anyway give it a shot without and make a choice afterwards.

RE: Mileage observations

I don't mind towing in the low 60s but it seems once I'm about 100 miles from where we are stopping I tend to go faster or push harder up the hills. I don't try and save $$$ by going slow or I wouldn't be towing a parachute across the country to begin with. My tires are still the factory China Bombs so that's always on my mind too.

RE: Anyone purchase the new in line 6 Chevy Diesel?

Is this the motor with the belt driven oil pump where you have to remove the transmission to service it?

RE: New coffee maker

Used to take the drip machine with us on our trips but earlier this year while traveling we bought a Keurig and haven't looked back. Love the variety, ease of use and compactness.

RE: Mileage observations

Nice to see a long range report. We did 5,231 miles earlier this year in our 22' Toy Hauler at around 6,300lbs weight. It's a rolling dog kennel with a residential sized deep freeze, coolers and lots of metal pet fencing. We went from CA to LA, up to KY and back to CA. I kept it in 5th which is OD on my manual trans and averaged 14.68mpg going around 62-65 the entire trip. Like you there was around 300 miles of non towing which works out to 19mpg for me. I love these long trips. Nothing like filling the fuel tank and seeing America!

Resale is worth literally thousands of dollars over the gasser so the Diesel pays for it's self on the back end.

RE: Motorhome Crashes Into Las Vegas Casino

California plates and even though it looks like a well kept clean older rig I bet she's Motorhomeless and a user.

RE: Oops, Dodge just threw you under the bus...

Love to have 19.5, opens you up to long lasting highway tires. Along with horrible ride. Oh I've already got that.

RE: Trouble with California

Been stopped at all of them entering California and never asked to be searched but was asked in the middle of nowhere New Mexico at a checkpoint on the way to Carlsbad. My wife's and my stories were believable so they just did the mirror inspection under the truck and trailer and sent us on our way.

RE: Oops, Dodge just threw you under the bus...

Our old metal trucks don't have a actual payload number but I've had 44 bags of concrete on a pallet in the back of mine before. It wasn't quite on the bumps with the air bags and total weight including the pallet per Home Depot was 3,990 pounds. I'd never go on a extended trip with that load nor make it a normal occurrence but I'll never forget that number. I know lots of newer truck have issues hauling stupid weights like that because more of the bed is behind the axle than in front and it tends to bend the frame. Usually it is the smaller half tons but the f450 also can have the issue. We call it reverse Taco'd.

RE: I think I'm stuck.

I think I'd go get the trailer and change the window seals myself after a month as long as the other issues have been fixed. Pulling out a window and resealing it is a hours work and at least you'll know the job was actually done and done right.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

If TFL towing results with the Tesla are somewhat similar with the Rivan whenever it becomes a reality then their 400 mile range will be around 100 miles towing.

RE: Night stops with RV

Done Cracker Barrels in St.George Utah and Little Rock Arkansas on the same trip. Also a few Walmarts mainly in Arizona over the years. I will never overnight in a truck stop or rest area. Way too noisy and busy for me.
