RE: Another Reason To Not Have Airbags

Could I ask, what is the difference between Sumo Springs and Super Springs? NO!

RE: Disc Brakes

Man! Those kits are expensive. I would love to put them on my fifthwheel, but at $1,300, I'll pass for now. One GUV MENT check will nearly pay for it. Get er dun. May save a life.

RE: Another Reason To Not Have Airbags

Bottom line Lou needs no air bags or Timbrens for such a light load ! Just ball to proper height and carry on. LOL... You've been riding Lou really hard lately. First it was why in the hell he was replacing the idler/pulley on his serpentine belt at 80k miles and now why in the hell he has air bags. :B Hey we are buddies! So based on your VAST knowledge of RAM trucks do you think there is a reason for him to NEED air bags for his load he mentioned? I never said he should not need or want bags for any reason. I added bags on my 11 DRW. It had NOTHING to do with my 4,500# pin. It was to help with some of the poor roads. I set bags to 30 psi LOADED as that did not change ride height. Bags and Bilsteins what a difference. Biggest problem with bags is people thinking they need to air so truck sets at unloaded ride height.

RE: Disc Brakes

Pics??? What upgrade??? MORryde??? NOTHING better than Disk Brakes. Anyone saying Drums are just as good, well...... Your buddy did get scrued as he did not get the trade in value removed from his total cost so he could have saved Sales Tax on the trade amount. I had a friend sell me his 98 12V for what Dave Smith would have paid him on trade. I asked what about the sales tax he would have saved??? He said I would rather you have it! Good Friend!!!As I have stated before, unless you check with your state DMV, you don't know that you couldn't have applied the money you received to lower the sales tax. That is the way it works in Missouri which I didn't know for quite a few years. You have to fill out the forms as to how much you received when you sold it, and that applies to the price that was paid for the new unit. Sales tax is reduced accordingly. It's a "DEPENDS" thingy!!! Have not heard of a place that charges sales tax not crediting the trade value. But it's possible I could be wrong.

RE: Disc Brakes

I completely went thru mine last fall. I changed out to QUALITY oil bath system with EBC Yellow pads. The increase in braking is unbelievable. Kodiak 8k system on my MORryde IS system. If you don't understand how "Oil Bath" seal works check it out. NOT cheap I paid $24 each on AMAZON for the ones I listed. https://i.imgur.com/GqkA9V8l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/7CAZ1xnl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/3xdAQUwl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/q2g679nl.jpg

RE: Another Reason To Not Have Airbags

Lou, why in the HE!! do you need air bags on a modern DRW RAM with such a light load? I am betting you are airing bags to put truck at unloaded ride height. Drop the air in your bags to 5psi and raise the ball to where the trailer sets level and carry on. Your truck is designed to set level when placing a load on it and allow the overloads to start working. This is NOT squat! My 11 DRW is riding level with 4,50# pin. NO air bags. https://i.imgur.com/x10bOV1l.jpgYou couldn't prove it by that picture. You need to change the perspective, that looks like it's squatting a lot. Truck riding LEVEL is NOT squatting. Lot's of spring travel left. How about this pic? 2nd to last pic is current DRW with air ride in ALT with 9,750# on rear tires. Squatting? Last pic current truck in ALT ride. Squatting? https://i.imgur.com/s7gcQkGl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lr6vU7Sl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/GvNnjXUl.jpg

RE: Another Reason To Not Have Airbags

Sounds like you need a weight distribution hitch. 7k trailer with a DRW? 10% tongue weight I don't think so. Have any of you guys actually read what truck he has and the actual weight of his trailer??? This is what you need Lou if your ball height is not adjustable. https://i.imgur.com/2D3xyeol.jpg

RE: Another Reason To Not Have Airbags

I know this has been discussed to nauseum, but I am currently towing my cargo trailer that is combined weight of about 7K LBS, and some stuff in the bed of the truck and of course fuel and two bodies. I have a slow leak in the air system which after a day of traveling, it squats the truck and puts more weight on the front of the tandem trailer wheels. The truck handles the squat fine with a dually, but it causes for concern. I just add air and go at this point. Timbrens won't do this and I will be dumping the air system depending on what I find, and switching back at some point. Hopefully its just a small hole in the air line.

RE: Resealing DRV A/C Dometic Penguin II Unit On Roof

I agree people should check tightness of lag bolts. I have owned 2 DRV's over 9 years with zero leaking. I am on DRV Forums with no leaks mentioned.

RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

How does one live within their means at $8/hour? You get food stamps, public housing, free medical, income tax credit, public transportation, etc. Probably better than most workers. :( ZACTLY!!!

RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

NJRVer That’s simply BS!!! Whatever you make you should be living within your means and have enough saved to survive at YOUR income level. How does one survive on a federal minimum wage of $8 hr? They don't, they make do! Barely I do agree with thought. Here in Seattle even with it's $15 min, you make half of what is needed to live! Marty Live within your means. How does one live within their means at $8/hour? Never heard of a food bank and having roommates??? Seriously who do you know that has a full-time job paying $8 per hour? Those people you mention I guarantee you they have Tattoos, Vape, Smoke, Drink and enjoy the Reefer. ALL or some mentioned and none of those are cheap. BTW I have no issue with people doing those things but people always have money to do them. Maybe you should find one of those people and give them YOUR check.

RE: Stimulus Check , what are you going to do with yours ?

I am going to by myself some face masks. :) Really, though, savings, just in case an emergency arises. Lost a lot in stocks. Only if you sold em.

RE: Resealing DRV A/C Dometic Penguin II Unit On Roof

Next time you try to remove the AC unit you WILL be pulling up your roof! Stick with proper gasket! That makes sense. Thanks. You R Welcome!
