RE: Jacking up 5th wheel?

Typically I will use my 6 point system but there are times the TrailerAid works well.

RE: tire covers, yea or nay

I am in the sun basically 365 and never use a cover and never have had any cracking.

RE: Jacking up 5th wheel?

Simple and safe method to do any repair. I have used on my 19 and 24k Mobile Suites 5er's. https://i.imgur.com/fwQnBHPl.jpg But, but, but... That will overstress the one tire by putting too much load on it, same as driving over a curb at low speed! (/sarcasm) Lyle I know, I should be ashamed posting such a thing. ;) Yeah, 6,000 lbs on a tire rated for less than 4,000. And 6,000 lbs this side plus 3,000 lbs on the opposite side on an axle rated for 6-7,000 lbs. No worry. :B Let's get the facts straight. 8,750# on one tire that's rated for 4,805#. Axle is rated for 8,000# but inspected by MORryde that manufactures and rates it said at 17,500# on the 4 tires the axles are still well within their perimeters. For God's sake no one had better place all their weight of one side of their RV on one tire. So when you have a blow out make sure they both blow so one is not damaged by the one being flat. :R

RE: Tranny fluid change

2015 user guide simply says "Change automatic transmission fluid" or "Change automatic transmission fluid and filter(s)" then goes on to give intervals. I see nowhere partial fluid change. Common sense tells me it's better to change "ALL" fluid if possible. People do what you want and I shall also. Funny how it rubs some the wrong way when I suggest changing all if possible. Yes, you’re right, and yes you’re wrong… I too prefer the fluid replacement method getting all or nearly all the fluid out and replaced at once. However that is not how the maint intervals are called for on the Aisin. It’s basically half the fluid each time. Maybe no coincidence that the intervals seem about 2x as frequent as they would seem to be. If I could figure out how to get it all exchanged I would simply do the service every 60k instead of every 30. Some day I may call AISIN to see if they can spec a drain plug location in the torque converter. I had a plug installed on my Turbo 400 at 30k and shifted like new with around 450k when I sold it.

RE: Tires and their pressures

"They told us that you were supposed to adjust the pressure based on how heavy of a rig you are towing and that the tire dealer can help us figure out what that should be." OMG, actually suggesting knowing your weights and airing accordingly. What is this world coming to???

RE: Tranny fluid change

GS nice to see you here. I am sure you have missed me on the TDR as my suspension won't be up until August 15th. This thread is nearly two months old, you must be bored. I stand by my statements saying if possible ALL your transmission fluid should be changed. So far I have not figured out how to do so on the AISIN. Maybe explain if the AISIN is perfect with partial changes WHY you added a deeper pan to allow for more trans fluid on your truck??? Not criticizing you for doing so because that's what you wanted to do. 2014, it's really simple to do a fluid exchange on the 68, why would you not do it???

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

"GY has suspended production of the Endurance and they are out of stock nearly everywhere." That's a shame for those who want a quality US Made tire. I just did an online search and found multiple outlets still selling Goodyear Endurance. I even made a selection of a pair of ST225/75R15 E-Rated on Walmart.com and they're in stock. Just an FYI. Could be an internet false story. Nice they are still in stock.

RE: RV Fuel Issues & Prices - Post 'Em Here!

Sure does, when closing down pipelines and oil field areas it sure does effect price. YES these have been recent political decisions.What functioning pipeline or oil field was shut down? I am not going to play the word game with you. You are smart enough to know what I said is true.

RE: RV Fuel Issues & Prices - Post 'Em Here!

Election day, 2020--Gas was $1.95 July, 16th, 2021-gas is $3.25 News stated the gas is the highest it's been in 7 years. Not claiming anything here, but-the same party was in office then as now. Oil prices have nothing to do with politics today or yesterday.... world market and the Virus are pretty much to blame along with OPEC. Sure does, when closing down pipelines and oil field areas it sure does effect price. YES these have been recent political decisions.

RE: Looking for info on Insurance

"By having multiple policies under one company, you get better discounts and the local agent is more likely to go to bat for you if they stand to lose multiple policies." True story! American Family smoked Farmers in overall cost. They have been great to deal with overall.

RE: New ram 3500. Are my weights ok for this truck.

As you’ve found, these trailers. Toyhaulers in general are tongue heavy. Run it wherever it looks and rides/drives best imo. I’ve never been worried about restoring weight to the front of a diesel truck with moderate weights. My front suspension and tires could use a little break from the weight of that big arse motor, once in a while. If you would quit running those LS tires you would not need to worry. ;)

RE: Speed limits

The braking and handling of cars now compared to 1973 when I took my Drivers Ed simply do not compare. 2 seconds then makes 2 seconds now much safer. Our teacher had us set in a chair in front of the class one at a time. He held a yardstick by the tips of his fingers with it dangling to the left of our right foot at one foot off the ground. He would let go and the challenge was to hit the stick before it hit the ground once he let it loose. No one could do this. He used this as an example of how long it takes to react. Great teacher, when traveling at 70 on I-5 he always kept on us saying "keep it on the top side of 70". It was actually scary doing so in a 72 LTD boat of a car going thru the curves along Lake Samish.
