RE: Hauling a Honda 3000

I can carry 3 2.5 gallon gas cans plus other stuff in my generator compartment when I have the generator on the front rack

RE: Hauling a Honda 3000

Kayteg that's a nice set up! I'm a big fan of KISS designs and agree that you're anti-theft is probably more effective than a lock. Buzzcut, TL sent me one of those as a free "marketing evaluation". Was so heavy I could barely lift it, and wouldn't enable me to fit a cover on my Honda 2k. FYI on other front hitch installs, I used a floor jack to lift mine into place and it went very smoothly. I have no problems with a cover on my 2000 and the Sidekick rack and locking system https://tinyurl.com/yyzcg8nq width=600

RE: Hauling a Honda 3000

its expensive but secure. I have the model that fits the Honda 2000/2200 https://tweetys.com/torklift-a7752-lock-and-load-trailer-hitch-cargo-carrier-24-long-x-27-3-4-wide.aspx?utm_term=&utm_campaign=&utm_source=adwords&utm_medium=ppc&hsa_ver=3&hsa_kw=&hsa_cam=8889211665&hsa_acc=1425045090&hsa_tgt=pla-293946777986&hsa_ad=411419814410&hsa_net=adwords&hsa_grp=92623288954&hsa_src=u&hsa_mt=&gclid=Cj0KCQjw2or8BRCNARIsAC_ppyYArbhpW2vBSSFq_0ZCNJmdHJ9mNn4jiXkYtRodW0vLRoicsYOua8kaAmZBEALw_wcB

RE: storage door lock

I am still unable to get the lock open to replace or repair. Am to the point where I need to drill it out? Thanks for all the suggestions. There maybe something in the compartment wedged against it. If its on the truck depending on if its a rear or side compartment. Take it out and hit the brakes hard to move stuff in a rear compartment forward or take a hard corner to move stuff in a side compartment. That may do the trick to get it unstuck

RE: Purchasing used...how to know if it is stolen or not?

They should have a sticker with a serial number on them.

RE: Towing 7000 LB trailer?

don't guess. take the truck to a cat scale, weigh it, then reweigh with the loaded trailer attached. the added weight to the rear axle is your tongue weight

RE: Towing 7000 LB trailer?

Super truss at 42" without a WD hitch can only handle 600 pounds of tongue weight and 6000 pounds of pull. with a WD hitch it can handle 1200 TW and 12000 pull I pull a 7000 pound horse trailer with a 48" extension and a WD hitch all over the country with no complaints. In the last 12 months I did round trips from San Francisco to Lexington Ky and From SF to Chicago round trip in rain wind snow and heat. (KY in Nov, Chicago in July).

RE: Northern Lite 10-2000 stolen in Seattle

One of the reason I have a fob based ignition bypass. It arms when I turn off the truck and I have to activate the FOB to turn the ignition back on to make the key turn the truck on. no wires, no switches not going to post the link for the bad guys cruising the web to get a heads up but PM me and I will send you a link. Its not expensive ( except to repair your punched door lock and column key) and its a DIY install.

RE: Are DMVs operating in your area?

AAA will register your vehicle and issue plates in CA. Probably something similar in NV

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

It's really not a new problem it's just that the population has grown so much that the effects of the same percentage of thoughtless people is greatly magnified by the sheer increase in their numbers. My biggest peeve is by the smallest litter. The smokers that think the world is their ashtray and toss the butts out the window everywhere including the hills during high fire danger. every Mt bike ride, every hike no matter where I go I find myself stopping to pick up someone's trash. jut pisses me off. Even my employees leave fast food bags and cups in the work vehicles at the end of the shift...We live in a worl d that forgot take only pictures leave only footprints

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

In my early 20s (70s) we were driving out to Anza Borrego in my Land Cruiser when a guy in a caddy tossed a full bag of garbage out his window into the desert. We stopped picked it up and tore after him. When we caught up he was driving along windows open in the slow lane. I pulled even, drifted close to his door. My buddy yelled out you dropped something and tossed it into his lap. And yes at that point the bag ripped open. it was awesome.

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

Last year at Lexington Horse Park Campground the folks next to us left garbage all over their campsite packed up their RV and left. I took photos of it and their site reservation tag then bagged up all the trash and went down to the camp office. Showed them the photos, the garbage and the site slip. Rangers mailed out a $100 ticket and blocked the folks from reserving a site anywhere in the Kentucky state parks campground system. Harsh but excellent lesson.

RE: Sewer hose?

In the bumper of my Lance 1055 I can fit 20" of stinky slinky. Have you considered a macerator pump and garden hose set up? that should fit about anywhere.

RE: How Much Stuff is in Your Truck Camper

I load up the camper the same way I load up my backpack. Aside from tools to fix stuff the only permanent gear are 2 pots, 2 skillets, one splatter screen, 4 plates and bowls, silverware, 2 coffee mugs, stove top expresso machine. two sets of towels for us and 3 dog towels 8 rolls of TP. leveling legos, axe, hand saw Even on trips most of the cabinets are half empty. two trips of non use and I toss it.

RE: Honda 2200 on front hitch...possible overheating?

Unless its right up against the body its not blocking the airflow anymore than the big flat plastic Ford Grill bars do. Unless Ram builds trucks with crappy cooling systems that is

RE: Need Suspension Mods

Ok 7500 at the rear axle is what my 03 F350 Long bed CC 4x4 diesel SRW with a lance 1055 scaled at. I had tires rated at 3750 (Toyo 285/75R16) and had a major tread separation blowout on the freeway at 65 left rear tire let loose, almost rolled. It did $3000 in damage to the truck bed. After that I switched to 19.5 wheels and tires rated at 4500 pounds each or 9000 pound capacity at each axle. Bonus is no more sidewall flex induced roll. Check your tire ratings I bet you are in for a shock

RE: Need Suspension Mods

go scale your rig at a CAT Scale don't guess. Once you know the real load on each axle and post it we can give you some real world advice

RE: Back order shocks

Buzzcutt , order them from Advance auto . Told they were made over sea and they don't know how long they will be on backorder. Current shocks are shot ( leaking) so I can't wait long. Given the times we live in now I don't have much of a choice. check the part here. most are in stock https://www.summitracing.com/search/department/chassis-suspension/section/suspension-components/part-type/shocks-and-struts/product-line/rancho-rs9000xl-shock-absorbers
