RE: Towing vehicle Ford vs GMC Dually Super Duty (used)

Look for deals like this on, can do a huge search, This is only 6k over your top end. Usually the new designs grow on me. That new Chevy isn't. Especially in the lower level trim levels. I don't know what they were thinking. :?

RE: New tow vehicle!

I prefer a Malibu for surfing. Awesome! Nice wave from the goofy side of a ‘Bu! And the scenery....Powell? Btw, I can’t surf RF fwd, yet. Did manage to surf heel side on the starboard side though. Want to feel like you’re learning all over again and drunk? try heel side! Do you get good push on the starboard side? Friends are looking at a Nautique but all are L foot forward riders. Told him better check it out. Nautis are rh rotation. Here is regular side. I'd buy a Bu again. Great boat. Rider is about 6'4" for comparison.

RE: Considering a '17 3500 Ram

Sounds like a great truck. Not sure you will make that 10 - 12 MPG average towing an RV at 65 though.......

RE: New tow vehicle!

I tried to use my folks Wrangler to put my old sterndrive into the garage. It absolutely buried the rear end of it, and that boat was 1000 pounds less than that Mastercraft. Honestly can't imagine towing it down the road at 55 MPH. Or even using it to launch the boat. Asking for trouble.

RE: Jeep Grand Wagoneer

It is still a conceptNot a concept. Should be hitting showrooms soon, maybe by the end of the year! Expected to launch Q4 2021. It is a concept. I work at a Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealer. They are getting classes ready for the Wagoneer. Should be ready by the end of the year or the beginning of 2021. I may have been off on the release timeline, but the fact is it will be released!

RE: Jeep Grand Wagoneer

There was a rumor that Ford was going to produce the Excursion again. It's called the Expedition MAX and has more power, payload, and interior volume than the Excursion did. I have one. Improvement over the Yukon XL it replaced, but it still ran up above 240* tranny temps pulling my 7000 pound boat through the rockies on Sunday. I can't imagine towing more weight through mountains with it, despite it's 9200 pound tow rating. As far as the Grand Wagoneer, I'd be interested - if they made an extended version.

RE: Boondocker recommendations?

Curious why you aren't looking at another Arctic Fox? Looks like their gray capacity is 44 and 35 for black, is that not competitive with the other manufactures? FWIW, we are considering upgrading our 5th wheel. I've looked at Arctic Fox and Grand Designs. The AF quality sure appears better to me.

RE: Hauling generator on upcoming trip

Before I had a built in generator installed in my trailer, I used a cargo hauler like Padredw has. I can't imagine a hitch not stout enough to hold that weight, and the small amount of weight there will have zero effect on the way your trailer rides/tows. FWIW, I still have the cargo carrier - it came from Harbor Freight.

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

My assumption is that most of the folks posting here about speeds below 65 MPH don't drive in the West. Speed limits where we travel are 75 MPH as well. Sometimes 80 MPH. I usually set cruise at 70 MPH. Sometimes 75. And, at those speeds, I rarely pass another RV. But I have a ton of them pass me. Especially if I am at 70 MPH. I am also in the camp if you are traveling under 65 MPH in the West with speed limits of 75 - 80 you are impeding traffic, and it would be safer for everyone if you chose routes off the interstate.

RE: Water refill when dry camping

I use a regular 12v RV pump that I replaced years ago, due to it not holding pressure. I can run it from batteries, but normally just use a 12v jump pack. I just put a piece of pex hose on each end, one in 6 gal jug, other in tank fill. Jerry This is what I do. Except since I have a fifth wheel, I use a large transfer tank instead of the 5 gallon jugs.

RE: Ram Factory Brake Controller

I had trouble with my brake controller when I first got it. Turned out it was much more sensitive to the trailer plug than the old truck was. My 5er never seemed to brake as well as I wanted. Then I had a different trailer repair guy service the axles, and he told me that I needed new wiring for the trailer brakes. Once he did that, they work as I think they should. And I don't care what others say. That 12" screen is awesome.

RE: Virus while camping

I am back to traveling for work, and we never stopped camping. As a matter of fact, I think the vast majority of America has seemed to taken up camping, as the areas we go to that are never busy this time of year are all packed now. I'm ready for everyone else to get back to their normal vacations....... And to answer your question, I got pretty sick back in February. Tested negative for flu. But have also tested negative for the Covid antibodies, although I am not sure how long they would stay in your system. I have been healthy (thankfully so) since then.

RE: A/C couldn't keep up. Help?

I'm having similar issues on my 5er. After research, I think my AC is running ok, but it's hard to expect more than about a 15* drop from the outside temp. Maybe you can get 20*. Which is still stupid hot when them outside temp is 115* (I'm in Phx as I type this). The generator in your RV should be more than adequate to run both AC's. That would be my suggestion. It will certainly help more than running 1 AC. The reflective insulation in the windows will also help. I'm sure you are already doing this, but run the AC 24 hours a day. It is much easier to cool the inside of the RV if it starts out cool. If you are starting from 100*, it is REALLY hard to get a significant temperature drop.

RE: Next Gen Raptor to have more power than Ram TRX

Well, the Hellcat Redeye is 797 HP. And the 6.2 in the Demon is 840 HP. So FCA is already well positioned to respond if needed. I love competition. Hard to believe that 707 HP might not be "enough". :)

The "Launch Edition" sold out in a matter of hours. Clicky

RE: Hellcat Powered 2021 Ram 1500 TRX debut

Just another useless toy. Would that be more or less useless than a Fleetwood Pride?

RE: Cooper tire failure at 65mph - now what?

I put Bridgestone on my truck last year, so far very happy with them. If you bought those at Discount, I am 100% that they would cover that under road hazard. One of the reasons I buy all my tires from them.
