RE: Advantage of residential refrig?

We removed our Dometic and installed a residential fridge. We do not run it on an inverter and have traveled ten hours to Florida with just a couple of frozen one gallon water bottles to keep it cold. We also pack out the freezer with frozen goods everything is solid after ten hours. We will never go back to a gas/electric fridge.

RE: Anyone use a Solo Stove

Love our Solostove. My wife cannot stand smoke from the campfire and she's the first one to start a campfire now. They get really hot and make sure your legs don't extend over the top.

I use a Yakima roof rack, takes about 15 minutes to put on. We haul our kayaks on it while pulling th FW.

RE: TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Install and Review

Love our Glowsteps as well, ours are five years old and holding up great. We have been in the market for a new FW but cannot stand the fold up steps so we will keep holding onto our current FW until we can figure out the steps.

RE: Camping Lights

You'd all hate me, we light up the trees in our campsite with the red and green laser lights, always get a lot of compliments on them.

RE: Buying a used diesel

We purchased a 2008 GMC Sierra 3500 dually with Duramax in 2015. The truck is fully loaded, had 110000 miles and paid $29000. The truck has been solid as a rock and now has 153000 miles. Will be purchasing it's first set of new tires this spring. The only issues we've had is a bad glow plug, a failed o-ring on fuel filter housing and had to replace the anti lock brake regulator. Total repair costs around $300. Love this truck and will drive it another five years. The truck is still worth close to $25000 so it has been a great buy as well.

RE: Current crop of SUV'S

Ill stick with our Honda Odyssey. So much easier to get in and out of, huge amount of cargo room, smooth and lots of power. Don't need to tow with it as we have a dually for that. Cheaper to insure as well and reliable. My wife drives a 2015 Dodge Durango and loves it. It has the V6 and rear wheel drive, which is the main we was on we purchased it. Her only complaint is not enough room inside compared to my Odyssey.

RE: Hey Smokers! (meat, that is)

We use a Traeger Tailgater. It goes in the bed of the truck.

RE: Fresh water tank collapse-week supports.

Been there, done that and have the new water tank, modified bracing and Coroplast to show for it. Lost ours on our 2015 FR Sierra 360PDEK while pulling onto the road from our driveway, another half mile and we'd been on the highway. Ours sounded like a big boom when it let go, full of water. A big pain in the ass to remove while sitting in the road full of water. FR stepped up and made all repairs long with additional bracing.

RE: Eternabond vs Dicor

I put Eternabond on all roof seams four years ago and have not had to touch it since. Leave the Dicor in place and thoroughly clean the area with acetone prior to using the Eternabond

RE: You might be an RV if?

You might be an RV'r if you own a big arse dually and only put 5000 miles a year on it.

RE: Frame and tie down damage from unmarked speedbump.

Let your insurance company handle it. If they feel there is a responsible chance they will get reimbursed by the city they will go after them for the amount of repairs they paid for your vehicle.

RE: Replacement steps

Checkout the Torklift Glowsteps. They fold up into the original step location and are as solid as the Step Above without blocking your door and getting dirt dumped into the RV.

RE: First time Eternabond user observations

I Eternabond taped all seams on our roof several years ago and still holding strong.

RE: Batteries drained to dead, what is nominal drain on truck?

I was having a similar issue with our 09 Honda Odyssey. Three new batteries in 14 months all from AutoZone. Each one replaced under warranty. After third battery failed and alternator still checked good I took the van to my mechanic. He replaced the Autozone battery with a Delco battery and ran a draw test for a week and couldn't find a problem. Turns out all of the AutoZone batteries were defective. Our van has been running great for eight months with the new Delco battery.

RE: I drove a 2020 Silverado D/A 3500HD today

I'd love to buy a new D/A but the price, wow. We have talked about getting a used diesel pusher instead of a new up truck and fifth wheel for retirement. New truck and FW would push us north of $150000. Still trying to figure out what to do. It's only money and we only live once.
