RE: 2018 coachman freelander 26ds flat towing

We tow a 4660# Wrangler and I know it’s back there! That’s about the absolute limit in my mind.We used to tow a Beetle convert on a dolly, that combo weighed 4000#. That was just a tad better... Gary

RE: need help with motor size

If the OP is referring to a MOPAR...For reference, our first C was a 1978 20' Jamboree on a Dodge chassis powered by their 318! We bought it new and put about 50k miles on it. It took us all over the US with no issues. If maintained, the 460 and Dodge 360 will provide respectable service. If you're asking about the Ford 360, we had a truck with one and it could not pass anything, especially a gas station! Gary

RE: Anyone using the HD Roadmaster Rear Sway Bar RM-1139-163?

I'm not sure you can have too much sway bar on a C. I would go with the 1 5/8 without hesitation... along with poly bushings. I have 1 3/8 on the front and rear with poly bushings and may go larger on the rear this Fall. Gary

RE: Climbing steep grades...

Okay, I40 at Black MT is a 5 mile 6% grade. I run in the right lane and pretty much stay with the trucks and some other RV's. Of course we hit it at 60 or so and then down to 45mph for most of the way. I do let it trail off the last half mile or so just because I don't like to push it as long as I'm not impeding traffic. So, I don't attempt to run up it, or any other long grade, at full throttle. We'm about 18.6k lbs so, below our GCWR of 20K. No heating problems thus far and we've been from NC to WA and everywhere in between. Cheers, Gary

RE: Climbing steep grades...

For reference, we pull a 4500# Wrangler with a 6.0, 6sp, 32' C. running up Black Mountain on I40, our temp creeps up as you mentioned. I run with the "Tow/Haul" mode turned on and the trans does it's thing with downshifting. We are around 25mph when we reach the top. The Scangage shows water temp a touch lower than the instrument cluster by 5 or so degrees. I added another external trans cooler to aid in controlling those temperatures as we travel the Rockies as well with this setup. Gary

RE: Which Michelin for Class C

We've been running the Agilis CrossClimate tires on our 32' C for about 5000 miles. So far so good...they ride well, are quite and seem to handle well. Gary

RE: Route 34 from Estes Park through Loveland Pass

It's a great drive following the Thompson River. Somewhat winding and, of course, pretty much down hill most of the way. This is the route we take every year into and out of Estes Park. Gary

RE: Any one flat tow a BMW?

You might want to check out some of the BMW forums for some input on this. Gary

RE: Chevy C-5500 Kodiak Duramax potential safety issue!

Help me understand something... doesn't hydraboost utilize the hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump to "boost" the brake pedal? Is there actually an accumulator somewhere that holds some pressure to aid in braking once the engine is off? Gary

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

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
