RE: How how do I find my tongue capacity?

Way back in our earlier years we had a 250cc Yamaha we carried on a 20' C. Although it was probably only about 200#'s, when mounted on the back it made the steering a bit "light"feeling. We finally moved it to the front bumper and handling was far better. Gary

RE: My Chevrolet Express van Class B- camper

Thanks, looks pretty tight but very doable. I look forward to projects like this! Gary

RE: My Chevrolet Express van Class B- camper

Great, thanks for the feedback. I will purchase one and make the same modifications, including the small floor riser... Gary

RE: My Chevrolet Express van Class B- camper

Mike, Curious about the passenger seat position and rotation. Did the position of the seat, while facing forward, change at all? Could you elaborate a bit on how you modified it to clear the door arm rest? Gary

RE: 25’ Class C. Ford vs Chevy opinion

We have a 32' C on the 4500 chassis and tow a 4500# Wrangler. We travel from NC to the CO, MT and WY every Summer. It does run a tad slow on those long grades but always makes it to the top. My thinking is the altitude seems to impact power. Mileage wise, we run between 8 and 11 depending on wind and terrain. Handling seems pretty good...We have added Bilstien shocks and dialed in as much positive caster as we could. Gary

RE: Compact Class C

^ It appears the OP's concern is with the MB GCWR and not the hitch capacity. Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

Update: Finally got around to installing the Scan Gage on our 2014 Chevy chassis C. It worked well but would not display trans temp. I contacted them for advice and was sent a data logger to capture info from the computers. Well, that helped and they were able to supply setup info that yielded the trans temp! Since this was the key parameter that motivated me to purchase, I'm very happy with both the functionality and support. Gary

RE: Please advise - determining max tow capacity

Just as a reference, our toad weight almost 500lbs more than the mfg curb weight without a driver and about 8gals of fuel... Gary

RE: Lincoln Problem

Sounds like an ignition circuit issue...possibly the module or harness. Try poking around one of the Mustang or Crown Vic forums for input. Gary

RE: Opinions Appreciated (yeah about tires)

We installed the Michelin Agilis earlier this year on a 32' C. They replaced Generals of which two had tread separation. We've put about 5k Miles on the Agilis and are quite satisfied with the ride and handling. They are quite on most road surfaces but will generate a little noise on some. I was going to go with Cooper but, decided on Michelin after getting a quote based on my FMCA membership. I don't regret the decision. Gary

RE: Wanna bring a golf cart and a Jeep towed

Actually, hohenwald48 is right...our bone stock 2015 JKU hardtop weighed 4520 with about 8 gallons of gas. And that was before the base plate etc. Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

Chum lee, Thanks, it appears my options are the pan itself or the cooler line. I found a supplier for the quick disconnect fittings and of course welding a bung on the pan is pretty straight forward. Right now I’m going with the Scan Gauge to see how that works. Our C isn’t too heavy as we travel light and don’t have slides. But, we tow about 4500#’s and travel the rockies every summer. Just thought I should at least monitor the temp to ensure I’m not abusing the trans. Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

I like the idea of monitoring the oil and trans temps. I’d probably also use ambient temp and that’s about all. Water temp is already in the instrument cluster. And no way I’m looking at fuel mileage reading! Ordered the Scan Gauge this morning... Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

Kamphiker, it was an option with the 4500 chassis. However, I wasn’t successful in having GM reprogram the new instrument cluster to add it. So, now I’m leaning towards the Scan Gauge option as there is a nice place to install it on the dash. Thanks for the advice everyone. Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

Thanks for the input. I've debated the X-Gauge solution but need to do more investigation to confirm it is capable of displaying the temp. Short to that, I guess an in-line connection or drill and weld a bung on the existing pan are my options. Also looking at a B&M cast aluminum pan and tapping it for a drain plug and sending unit. I'm planning to pull the pan off after the holidays to do a fluid/filter change so, I can figure out what to do then. By the way, this is for a 2015 Chevy 4500 chassis with the 6L90e transmission.

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

MDKMDK, Yeah I neglected to mention the GM dealer I worked with recently wasn't any help as the only "GM" solution is to enable the trans temp function in the information screen. Unfortunately, our particular configuration omitted this feature. I asked them to program it in but, they explained they could, or would, not do it as all they can do is reprogram existing functionality. They actually did this when they replaced the body control module and the instrument cluster... both of which we paid for! And even at that, they would not install the trans temp feature. The nearest GM dealer that will work on a RV is 105mi from us. Gary

GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

I'm interested in installing a temp gauge in our 6L90e transmission. Has anyone done this? I'm struggling with where to place the sending unit. This trans doesn't appear to have a "test port" so, it looks like either I weld a bung on the pan or splice it in the return line. Any thoughts or experience? Gary

RE: Air conditioner noise reduction

Rob, This is what I ordered from Amazon in 2018 based on this statement I found on irv2. Although it doesn’t specifically say, it did include a metal plate and some adhesive sound deadening. “ While we were at the THOR diesel Club rally in Goshen, the Dometic rep told us that if we switched out the air return cover to the basic one (no grill opening for the blast of air) it would be much quieter. Just did it and it is much better. Costs about $50 from Amazon. use search term Dometic 3105007.045.”. Here is the link to the actual one I ordered. Gary
