RE: timbrens

I HAD Timbrens,, I now have AirLift 5000.. Not sure I would go back to Timbren Style... Although, I like the idea of being lazy and not wanting to air up and down each tow... In cab controls! Air compressor under along with air horns = GOLDEN.

RE: timbrens

With all that said, my truck sits a bit low in the arse when towing.. I wanted to ride level when towing.... Just thinking out loud I guess... If the rear sets lower than LEVEL air bags to level the truck, it's really that simple.

RE: timbrens

From everything I have read you will NOT be happy going from bags to Timbrens. With my 11 HO DRW RAM I ran 5psi unloaded with stock like ride. With 4,500# pin added the pressure went up to 30psi and was enough to keep the truck "LEVEL" and setting on overloads as it was designed to be. Rode GREAT!!! I had in cab controls with separate side controls to make minor adjustments. Adding bags and Bilstein's made the loaded ride AWESOME! Too many "THINK" they need to air bags to have trucks rear when loaded at unloaded ride height. BAD way to go. This. ^^ He read that Timbrens suck, so based on no personal experience you should buy what he owns instead. Hang around here long enough and you'll figure out that whatever this guy owns is the best. The best, Jerry. The best. Reading is fundamental! "From everything I have read you will NOT be happy going from bags to Timbrens." Carry on!

Stick with bags.

RE: New truck batteries

Truck is assembled in Mexico of mostly US Made components. Not thrilled about it being assembled there but the other alternative is a Mexican made engine. Oh, is GM not making diesel engines any longer? I thought there was a third choice....:h :W No thanks!

RE: 5th wheel tires

If you are running full 110 inflation on a rig that only needs 80 it is overkill. If airing based on weight carry on. If I recall, GY says to run a tire at max speed rating it must be run at max sidewall pressure. Yes??? Don’t know.

RE: New truck batteries

Sad thing the Interstates I bought at Costco are Made in Mexico.

RE: 5th wheel tires

The FACT is D or E tires will take the exact inflation to carry the same load. Inflating E tires to 80 when 65 is plenty will cause worse ride, center tire wear and further stopping distance. E tires at 65 will be a stronger tire at 65 than a D at 65. Personally with the quality of the ENDURANCE I would stick to the D tire if you are not overloading it.

RE: lino cracked after cold spell

Rip it out, skim floor to make all joints smooth, glue down LVT flooring, carry on!

RE: Residential Refrigerator – Good or avoid?

How much power does a residential fridge typically draw. Some of reported it quickly drains batteries, and others have suggested it's really not that bad. "DEPENDS" cold out not much, hot out a lot!

RE: 20k USA made hitch for rails?

I also would like to know what rails OP has. On my '15 F350 SRW, used Reese rails/brackets. On my '17 F350 DRW, used B&W rails/brackets. Man oh man could not believe how much more beefier the B&W's were compared to Reese. Having also bought a B&W 18k Patriot when we had the '15, never again will I go back to Reese. Another company cheaping out and relying on their name!

Cool! Since you are getting the B&W I give my blessing. ;)

RE: double towing

Winged One, thanks for that info. That jives with what I was told. I can double tow CA since I am licensed SD and it’s legal there

RE: 20k USA made hitch for rails?

Why not install pucks and install a B&W. Eliminate the slop completely. Yup, best idea, if you really need 20K minimun rating. B&W makes an 18K rail mount, that is solid, and could be trusted to the max. Jerry I am proof positive that a 18k B&W doesn’t blow up at 18,001#. I towed 19k several years with my old 18k Companion.
