RE: Catalytic Connverter

Call your local muffler shop. I was told last month that California was easing up on after market cats as of August 1st. Don't know how true it is.

RE: Helper springs or air bags?

If price is no object, air bags would be the best way to go. The problem with air bags, you will need a air compressor, a controller in the cab, (to adjust the bags hight) and the air bags with mounts. Then you have to hook it all up. I removed my bump stops and installed Timbren Suspension System. It took less than a hour to install. The bottom of the timber sits one inch above the axle so it will not change the ride of my truck. Once I load the 5th wheel, my truck squats a little over a inch. It is more stable side to side and no maintenance required.

RE: Help with zirk fittings

Years ago I bought a 5th wheel with grease able hubs. I fallowed the manufactory recommendation, jacking tire off the ground and slowly turning tire as I greased the hub. Took about a half a tube per hub. The following year I pulled the drums off to check brakes and found 3 of 4 brake shoes had grease on them. I called Dexter axle at the timed spoked to a tech, who said the the grease able hubs have been around a long time. They were designed for boat trailer, to push water out of hubs. The RV industry had jumped on the band wagon as a selling point. His recommendation was to inspect once a year for possible grease by-passing seal. You can take your chance on brake shoe contamination and not stopping when you need them or do it the right way and hand pack bearings. My trailer brakes are to important to me to take the easy way out and just pump grease into the hub and hope the seal won't leak.

RE: AirConditioner Discharge Openings

Before you add a second AC, check out RV Airflow System. It will boost the ac duct output by 40-50%. I just installed one, but it hasn't been hot enough to really see how much faster rv cools down. I did turn fan on and the air coming out of ducts is much much better.

RE: Level Mate Pro

The whole reason to use the Level Mate Pro is to help level the RV side to side before you unhook. It will also tell you how much front to back. You can move little back, maybe forward or move little to one side to find a better level spot . It tells you how much leveling blocks need to level RV. You don't do this with your slide out. Once level and unhooked you put out your slide.

RE: Chevy/GMC bed height

My 2020 CC standard bed RWD measures 59 1/4" at the rear bed corner. When I looked for new truck I was hoping the RWD would be lower than 4x4, but not the case anymore. Both measured the same bed height. The dealer gave me such a great deal back in May because of covic-19 they were having a hard time selling inventory, I bought it. It had the 5th wheel puck system, so I bought the Curt adapter for my Q20 hitch. I hooked up my Sprinter 5th wheel and started laying boards under the tires of the 5th wheel. After several attempts, I had 4" of wood boards to get trailer to measure from ground to frame the same, front to rear. I found a company in Canada that makes lift kits and bought 2 set, 1 set per axle, 3" lift blocks. Trailer still not even front to rear so I changed out my 15" rims to 16" rims and had Goodyear Endurance ST235/80/R16E installed. It was finally equal front to rear. I've toad it over 4000 miles now and it's been great. Love the truck, but it took some work to get trailer level. One other thing, I kept my 6" clearance between bed rail and bottom of 5th wheel.
