RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

I bet there's a little bit of slop in all those parts also.

RE: New Tires - too many options

Need to look at something for my 14 Ram dually and the best deal I have found is the Sailun Terra Max HT. They seem to be very highly rated. Lots of good reviews about their trailer tires so I might give them a try.

RE: Light switch

Our 2007 Laredo had one of those and it was a 120 volt switch. Since the camper had 30 amp service it would select between the microwave or fireplace but not both at the same time.

RE: Am I missing something?

You at least got 5 minutes with a salesperson. I walked into Camping World in Lowell Arkansas with an appointment and sat for an hour before I went out on the lot myself to look around and then left (along with my $75,000 check in my pocket). Salesman calls me two days later wanting to know why I left after only an hour, really? I get how someone can get busy but he could have taken 1 minute to come out and say he was tied up and would be a while. That I can deal with but not totally ignored. Another dealer down the road was very happy to see me and my check, even bought me lunch. Guess who gets my business from now on?

RE: Furrion Observation Camera Wiring

Question: How does your camera get to the dashboard. Through the Bergman 7 pin , wireless or independent connector. Wireless.

RE: Furrion Observation Camera Wiring

Our 16 Montana came wired hot all the time and the camera died in about 8 months. When I called Furrion to see about warranty they ask if it was powered all the time, and I said yes. The lady told me they don't specify it but it should not run 24/7. They sent me a new one, I sent them the bad one and I changed it to run off the marker lights with no more issues. Don't know if Montana still wires them that way but the manufacture does not recommend it.

RE: Dually tire pressure?

I run 75-80 in front, loaded or unloaded. I may have some extended interstate running today. I'll lower the rears to 36-38 and see how it acts. This is what I have done for years. 65psi+ in the rears empty is just to rough with no weight on it. 40 makes it much better and the tires are wearing even and do not run hot. Always 80 in the fronts.

RE: not enough hitch weight capability

Rear axle/Tires carry the Wet Pin weight Don't exceed those ratings. Old debate over GVWR/Payload Mfg. sets the GVWR and Payload is based on that number Many States allow you to register the truck at a higher GVW just pay the higher even many States do not recognize the MFGs GVWR MANY will scream/holler but one just has to think for themselves and make an informed decision on what is OK for them Hang's going to get bumpy :B I saw something Monday I thought was odd but I guess legal as stated above. A road that goes across interstate 49 I cross everyday was under construction and there was a GMC 2500 pickup sitting there from Manhattan Road & Bridge. Under their logo was the following "GVW 18,000". Could not see what state plate it had and I did not have time to get a pic but I know what I saw. Must be one bad a$$ 2500.

RE: Your experience with a Dually vs SRW hauling 5ver

Our DWR Ram is a dedicated tow vehicle for our 16k trailer with 3,400 lbs on the pin. Could we get by with a SWR truck? Yes, but I don't want to worry about or even think about weight when we travel. Like everyone else has said the DWR has a more solid stable feel especially on the 2 lane curvy roads. Plus I like the long bed. I drive a newer Honda Civic turbo as my daily driver but sometimes I drive the truck just for kicks and have never had a problem parking or going anywhere I needed. It works for us so get what works for you.

RE: Recommend brands of Air Conditioner, Advent, Atwood anygood?

I have had 3 different A/Cs and the following observations OEM were a pair of Carrier Air V.. For political reasons I'd say to boycott carrier but... They made that uncessary as they decided to boycott the RV world and no longer make RV air conditioners (That was easy). They were 13,500 BTU and drew 13.5 amps running (Measured it I did to confirm) The 1st replacement was ADVENT.... If only I knew then what I know now. As someone else said CHINESE.. the fan blew up.> Cleaning was a ... Job as the inner cover is not easy to open and they have a one piece cover for both evap and condenser (I bent it in the middle) 15000 BTU and 13.5 amp 2nd replacement was a Coleman.. Both advent and Coleman have adapt-a-kits to replace Carriers but Coleman was out of 'em (not a problem we went with a ceilin Control so only re-wire was adding a Wall T-Stat and switch for furnace. less than 30 dollars in parts. I'm overqualified for that job) 15000 btu and 13.9 Amps Now the fun part Advent, Carrier and most everybody BLOW.. that is the draw air in the sides and blow it out through the condenser. So when you clean the condeneser you have to open up the outer cowling and then the inner cover and if your hands are my size remove the fan. Coleman sucks... That is draws air in and exhausts it to the sides. To clean the condenser I remove 4 bolts, lift the cover. brush it off and restore cover and 4 bolts. Swift, Easy and no scraping of knuckles inside evap fan compartmetn When the fan on the advent went BOOM like a China Bomb. I put in a Coleman fan so now it sucks too My brother had one of those AC that Suck. And, it really Sucked ! It would not cool worth a darn. When I got to looking at it and I discovered that is sucked the air across the condenser rather then blowing it I realized that this was part of the problem. You can not Draw air across the condenser nearly as well as forcing it across. Plus when you suck it though you are also moving all that hot air across the compressor which is the hottest working part of the unit !! Also, by sucking it from the back and then trying to force it out the sides you are making the air turn 90 degrees (With no sort of baffling to help it) and then forcing it out of little slits on the side of the unit. There is a reason that all the other units Blow. It's because that is better then Sucking. He never did get that Coleman to work good enough to keep his 25 foot 5th wheel to stay cold when it was setting in the shade on days when it was only 90 degrees outside. He ended up getting a different camper but, not just because of that. He was having other problems too. I understand that you like your Coleman . But, I disagree. To each their own. Have a nice Day. Our first unit had a Coleman air conditioner and I noticed also it was sucking air instead of blowing it over the condenser. Thought it was wired wrong or had the wrong fan blade on it. I called Coleman and talked to one of their service techs who told me they where made that way for motorhome use while going down the road. He said they worked better that way because of the "station wagon effect". May be fact or BS but that was Coleman's official response.

RE: 2018 Dodge 3500 Laramie Longhorn Duelly

I thought it was odd the last time I took my 2014 dually in for a recall the guy that drove it up for me was a salesman. Said they don't see any 5 year old dually's that look like new with only 22,000 miles on them. Then the a$$ would not give me my key fob until he did a sales pitch on why I need to trade it. Only when I stopped him and threatened to make a big scene with him in the middle of it did I get my key back and leave. Morale of the story is they are all in it to make a sale any way possible but holding my property hostage is not going to work with me.
