RE: Maybe the party is over.

It’s always been a cyclical business.

RE: Please advise - determining max tow capacity

We had a 2014 F53 coach and at that time Fords ratings were 22k / 26k. Towed a 6k F150 crew cab all over North America. No issues whatsoever. I always weigh my rigs and that combo was right at 26k with a full load of water and fuel. Do some searching and you’ll find Ford chassis manuals online for the previous years of F53.

RE: Link to cell home phone that records cell calls

Visual voicemail. Beats playing back messages.

RE: Credit Card apps

I've heard, but "it ain't necessarily so". And so far the digital license isn't accepted in many states. I carry all the stuff I need in a wallet not much thicker than my phone. It's been like that for 40 years, I hate a thick wallet, and have never found the need to haul all that stuff around. First you ask how to carry all that stuff; then you say you never do. :B

RE: Credit Card apps

Another step to not carrying any wallet. I look forward to it.How would you carry your Medicare ID card? Driver's license? Cash for tips? Library card? I guess you haven’t heard, there’s an app for that. I have all those cards in my phone. If I carried all those bits of plastic and cardboard around my wallet would be 3” thick.

RE: Auto slider or manual

Pay me now or pay me later. Body and glass repair mid trip is not fun.

RE: 6.7 cummins HP

I’m not a fan of that rating because it’s paired to the 2xxx series Allison. And the transmission is the reason for the rating. It’s maxed out and can’t even handle the peak HP or torque from the 6.7. And it’s reduced even lower in top gears and low gears. Something with the 360 hp rated engine will have the 3000 series tranny and deliver full power in every gear.

RE: Clean Diesel trucks for TC ... maybe not!

Lots of people with no experience fear new diesels. After having had older and current there is nothing to be afraid of. Yes, there were some bad results in the transition years, not today. And power robbing? I think not. More power and better economy than ever before.

RE: Sandblasting and powdercoating: Les Schwab or dedicated shop

I’d just buy new wheels. Removing rust properly is not cheap, neither is powder done properly. Doing a half baked job will just hide the rust. Temporarily.

RE: Newbie ClassA questions - Stacker trailers

We have a Newmar 35’ with a 10k tow rating, and the GVWR and GCWR to support it. I expect a stacker with a vehicle and toys will be well over 10k unless you choose the contents carefully. I’d start with getting an accurate estimate of your anticipated trailer weight. I expect the math will lead you to a big tag axle coach, or a super C. There’s plenty of supers with 20k or more tow rating.

RE: '83 Toyota pickup start trouble in cold, wet weather

I’d still think spark problem, ether is easier to ignite than gasoline. Try a heat source like a trouble light with an incandescent bulb and leave it near the coil or distributor during wet spells. That will drive off any condensation. A heat gun if you have one or a small space heater could be used also. When you locate the part that when warm and dry cures the no start then you’ll know what to replace.

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

FWIW the recommended inflation is for that weight at maximum rated speed. There’s no need to go that fast to test your hypothesis, drop the pressure five pounds and stay ten mph or more below the rated tire speed and don’t worry about it.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla overtakes GM as most valuable U.S. automaker, short sellers burned Question, what rises faster; Tesla shipments or the post counts of doomsayers?

RE: To Buy or build

I have all the skills to build one, and the time, I suppose, since we’re retired. But I wouldn’t consider it. I have built vehicles before. It’s a labor of love, but it’s not “green” nor is it cost efficient vs. purchasing someone else’s project. If you don’t want a newer, factory built rig then there’s plenty of project rigs out there that have been completed (?) and used and the owners are ready to move on to something else.

RE: Well if you have the money they will build it

Very nice. Better than spending the equivalent on a bus conversion IMO.

RE: Leveling Jack Lights Staying on When Parked

Ignition switch off then press the power button on the leveling system does it on ours. In that order.

RE: Frameless Dual Panes - Better or Worse?

I don’t know why trailer windows would be inherently different than MH windows? We’ve had both types in MH, as far as I can tell they’re equally effective. And highly recommended, for both temperature and noise moderation. A bigger difference IMO, is whether you get sliders (great for airflow but can’t be left open in the rain) or tilters ( less airflow but can be open in the rain).

RE: 2020 Ecodiesel Fuel Economy Tests

Only 100 miles. A bit of foam in the tank, or a small measurement error. No way is measuring the tank level accurate enough for that determination when you’re talking 2.5 gallons in a 33 gallon tank.

RE: Who do we notify when moderators break the rules?

Mods are a lot nicer than many other forums I’ve seen. This is just another snowflake moment. Apparently it’s okay to rant but the mods are supposed to address us softly like the tender two year olds we emulate. No. My hat’s off to anyone who takes on the thankless role of moderating a public forum.

RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

That’s a good advertisement for monocoque chassis like Prevost.
