RE: Towing vehicle Ford vs GMC Dually Super Duty (used)

Check on the price to replace GM injectors on the diesel, and they all go bad. GM injectors are an old issue my 07 had 300K with original injectors. They don't all go bad. For the most part the drive trains of all the big 3 are pretty solid at this point.

RE: Storing a Trailer Aid

Put it on craigslist? Then buy a low profile jack which will fit in more places and be more universal than that ramp.. Not to mention your tow vehicle SHOULD have a jack anyway, it's not like you are going to be able to use that ramp to change your Tow Vehicles tires.. Just another unitasker device solution in search of a use to find a home for.. ONE Multitasking solution like a jack often beats a single tasking device.. If you ever used one its much easier and safer than a jack for along the roadside tire changing. Granted the trailer aid does not work on all tandem axles however if it works on your trailer its certainly worth having around. I just keep mine in my fiver's basement storage area beneath the lp tanks

RE: Towing vehicle Ford vs GMC Dually Super Duty (used)

Id buy brand new and take good care of it,starting with proper undercoating. Have 08 Silverado that stil runs like a dream,but then I dont race or let it overheat and change all fluids at recomended intervals. If that was in my budget. It is not. I sort of thought the same thing when I was buying. But at $42-$45K I was only 10K away from brand new with zero miles, better financing and 100% warranty. Look closer at the numbers, consider something less than Denali and platinum packages and new is a viable option. I purchased new in 2019 and found better new deals than used. While I like all the bells , whistles and creature comforts AI found a LTZ to be a better value than High Country. Don't be afraid to travel to a high volume dealer that promotes trucks they are out there!

RE: Run with only one propane tank

Bad idea. You are over thinking it. Why not remove the window screens? You really don'y open the windows much right!

RE: File transfer via Bluetooth

I'm no Apple expert but I believe you need Itunes to transfer files with Apple products. Android can transfer files via Bluetooth however Apple does not allow it?

RE: BEWARE Keystone Hideout

When my frame self destructed I contacted the manufacture. I don't think a failed frame was part of the original bargain I don't know what your time frame was, but I would still ask, why not? Is there something about a frame weldment that you think should have an indefinite warranty? Is a frame something that is impossible for a user to damage even if built properly? I know some have had luck getting Keystone or Lippert to help with frame repairs, outside the warranty period, but within the first few years. Lucky for them. Doubtful that would happen 8 years out, but sometimes they do surprise us with good will. And we know good will really means bad press avoidance. In my case my insurance adjuster felt my frame was defective. Lippert came out and knew what the problem was. My entire bedroom was removed and more steel structure added to the frame. However in the end I had to pay for it! Go Figure... paying to add steel that should have been there from the start was not part of the bargain

RE: BEWARE Keystone Hideout

Industry-wide quality issues aside... This individual has one post to his name, and obviously only joined this forum to lodge his complaint. Probably hoping to stick another spear in the side of they who wronged him. At some point in ownership, you have to just suck it up and become an owner. Warranty is over. Deal with it. Our own rig is nearing 10 years old. Approaching the manufacturer for repair assistance would not even occur to me. It belongs to me, has for a long time, and maintenance and repair are all on me too. Get over all the victimhood stuff and grow up. When my frame self destructed I contacted the manufacture. I don't think a failed frame was part of the original bargain

RE: Bathroom Dry Pipe

... But I just put a tee with valve on the existing 1/2 toilet supply line. Does the water supply provide enough pressure? In general yes. The RV is not creating its own pressure. The supply is as strong as the incoming water source!

RE: Bathroom Dry Pipe

I get your idea and if it works the way you want to it's all good. I have something similar. But I just put a tee with valve on the existing 1/2 toilet supply line. I then have a short garden hose always attached. I saw no need to run a 2nd dedicated line into the bathroom? I can use the garden hose as a turd blaster or a toilet filler. The garden hose has a lot more pressure than the toilet rinsers found on many RV toilets That 2nd dedicated line might be good for winter camping? you could fill and flush toilet without putting water into the entire plumbing system!

RE: What do you guys use for a BBQ?

I got rid of my Roadtrip for a Weber Q 1200. You might want to consider a 17" Blackstone Griddle as well

RE: Boat Rentals

Definition of a boat: a hole in the water that you pour money into. ;) I guess that makes an RV a hole in the ground

RE: Hitch hits rails of Retrax

I had the same issue with my prior truck and the Retrax. Eventually the hitch destroyed the Retrax. At that point I switched to a Bak Flip G2 tonneau cover. I eventually raised my pin and the rear of the trailer to gain more clearance. I did try clipping the corners but that did not resolve the issue.

RE: Boat Rentals

I used to consider a rental expensive, until I considered what it would cost to tow a borrowed (free) boat boat to the lake. I would have to drive a 2nd car. Get the trailer ready, pack bearing etc. Then I 'd have to pay to launch the boat and take the time to do it. In the end it was much easier to just show up at the dock get on a rental boat and drive off vs. the challenges and expenses of towing my boat 6 hours round trip. I agree renting a boat is expensive but there is a convenience factor to consider that makes renting tolerable. For me renting has significant advantages vs. towing a boat from home.

RE: Ram 2500 6.4 Hemi Towing a Fifth Wheel

For your use, keep what you have unless money burns a hole in your pocket. Craig I agree and if your not going to upgrade to a diesel don't do anything. Trading from gasser to gasser is not money well spent.

RE: BEWARE Keystone Hideout

As soon as I read "Keystone", I knew it wasn't going be anything but bad. The wife and I just recently spent a week in a really nice state park " Stonewall resort " with full hookups. We were walking the dog around the campground and noted that every RV looked brand new and the place was completely dominated by Keystone and Forrest river units. Sales volume opens the door for more publicity.....good or bad. And there-in lies the truth. If brand A sells ten times more units than brand B, then expect brand A to have ten times more complaints than brand B. Just a matter of numbers. If brands A, B,C,D and E are all producing junk with no quality control. And brand A produces more than brand B. Than Brand A is producing more junk than brand B.

RE: BEWARE Keystone Hideout

I think the magic word here is KEYSTONE. Been there, got the shirt. Hopefully, there are a couple other RV makers out there that actually care. There are not. The OP could have bought any brand RV and had the same experience. Title of thread should be "Beware of RV Quality."

RE: 2016 Ram short bed 6.7 diesel 2500 payload close to max

It just so hard to buy the FW and THEN find out it does or doesn't do the job. I understand the 3500 is a leaf spring vs 2500 coil spring but ut seems like a gamble I may take. Thanks for the advice. Assuming your unladen truck has a 3500# scaled axle weight you can add 3000# of cargo. If the 5th wheel pin is 3000-3100 that leaves you zero capacity for anything else in the truck. You can fudge the GVW a bit if you like, But you should not exceed your axle ratings. If you choose to exceed your axle ratings then there no point to even discussing the ratings, if they are just going to be ignored For me that combo up is marginal at best. Marginal is unacceptable in my book. Nevertheless I would weigh the truck full of fuel, with ready to camping cargo and people on board, to get an accurate weight of the truck.

RE: All steel 236/85/R16 LRF

Looks can be deceiving, 1,440# more on rear axle in pic. https://i.imgur.com/naWepCul.jpg I haven't seen a picture yet that tells me how much an axle ways? I don't have those super powers that allow me to determine axle weight via a photo. I'm still using a scale to measure weight, I didn't know I could use a camera.

RE: food storage

Non perishable foods are very durable. They travel across the country in unrefrigerated trailers all summer long. From manufacturers to distributors, to wholesalers, to grocery stores. In and out of the heat a few times before they even get to your RV.
