RE: 2020 chevy trail boss

Hey Marty, glad your truck is working out great for you! You are a good example of getting the job done, doing real work, with a 1500, and a 4.3! Better tires, or even air the OEMs to the max, maybe a bit of suspension tweaking, and they'll get er did. Ford took a big jump with the 150s, using the Ecos, and 5.0 since 11-12. Jerry

RE: Hello

Chris - I'm sorry for your loss... Glad your keeping your mind occupied..... We took a couple rides this Summer. Shared some PMs with Chris quite a while ago. Nice guy, and the type of fellow that always lands on his feet! Nice pic of guys enjoying some bike time! 99FXDWG My riding buddy just bought this a week ago. His first ever Harley. I've owned two, a long while ago. He says Winter project?? Will be interesting, since he is a Canyon Dancer type rider. He is an Exec in the motorsports industry, with unlimited resources to build whatever? I'll likely get to take it for a rip next Summer! Jerry

RE: Hello

So much for tow vehicles. Please rename as Fishing Tales. Hey bucky, I could change, or add to my title, but fishing tales will just lead to more of same. :) At least a pic of pretty lady fisherperson! My thread is just a BS thread, to motivate some forum activity. Post whatever subject you would like, pics make it more interesting. Feel free to post a pic of your TV, a SxS, MC, snowmobile, or GF, as long as Marty permits. Not a TV, just taking a friend for a ride. Jerry

RE: Purchase hesitation after deposit, 2 questions

Getting a deposit back from a signed contract is doubtful, unless there is a stipulation in the contract. If you are on good terms with the RV dealer/salesperson, maybe?? Ceiling panels may sag a little over time. A person familiar with leaks can tell if sag is water intrusion. Jerry

RE: 2020 chevy trail boss

Yes, that truck is capable of towing that trailer. Things that will make a difference in your experience are passengers/gear, fully loaded truck bed, and where you plan to tow. Jerry

RE: 2002 silverado 1500

When I read threads like this it makes me wonder how dad hauled 5 kids, mom, 3 packed coolers and a ton of other gear, out to Yellowstone then the Grand Canyon @ 1974. He was pulling a 25' Holiday Rambler TT with a 1963 Falcon 6 cylinder wagon. I think those things had about 75 HP lol. This is amazing, just a bit over the top! If you could post a pic of this rig, hooked up, ready to hit the road, I will say "welcome back to the forum". :C Jerry

RE: Help!

Along with lack of water in bowl, pipe from toilet may be too close to bottom of tank. Jerry

RE: 2002 silverado 1500

While the OP is asking, "can my truck tow 8K", his actual small TH is only 3,887 lbs dry. Even if he adds his 3 dirt bikes (750 lbs) plus stuff, he likely will not weigh over 6K, ready to go. I agree the older 5.3s were down on power, but I think it will get the job done. Jerry

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

^Weird, cause I view JGCs as Grampa-mobiles. So the tailgating sphincters must be of the same generation as the person complaining about them in the post above! Lol Can't say as to the poster you mention, age wise, but this 26YO Mom to be (twins coming soon) just bought a new JGC. She calls this her Mom car, and is pretty excited about the car, and especially her first children! Jerry

RE: 2002 silverado 1500

While that will likely be a load for your truck, sounds do able to me. Not sure of your travel area, but steep hills, or mountains will require lots of patience. Welcome to the forum! Jerry

RE: 2002 silverado 1500

Yes, you should be able to tow 8K. The misleading RV trailer normally has a large frontal area, and huge sidewalls. If you are towing a flatbed trailer, with a load of bricks 8K would tow much easier. You also need to be aware of hitch weight, as an 8K travel trailer may have 1K+ of hitch wt. Looking to tow a TT with an older 1500 V8 3.73, I'd suggest staying at 7K or less actual ready to camp wt. If you have 4 passengers plus gear and lots in the bed of truck, that needs to be figured in too. Jerry

RE: Hello

I am no fisherman, never had much luck, or knowledge of the subject. Some years back, I was pretty good at catch n release, but had nothing to do with fishing. I know 2014 does fly fishing, likely in some beautiful areas. Be nice to see a couple pics! Anyway, a little activity on TV section, maybe a bit of help to advertisers? Jerry

RE: Good Sam ERS Hung Us Out to Dry

Sorry this happened, and after being a member since 04! Myself, I would not be interested in assistance memberships. I could not sit and wait for a tire change. A major break down, no choice, but can call private emergency service for quicker response. Just me though, others don't mind waiting. Jerry

RE: Anybody else have bad issues with RV Value Mart?

FTG is right, as you now realize. When dealers have units online, they get many online inquires. They can't spend too much time on follow up, until the potential customer shows real interest. Talking with you, they get a better feel! They can determine if you are even a qualified buyer. Telling them you will be paying cash, will light their bulb! Jerry

RE: Running lights on cars

Motorcycle training and emergency vehicle operations courses have taught me to not overdrive my vision. Being able to see twice as far away is an advantage to educated people. I have only read the last couple pages, but have noticed motorcycles referenced several times. MCs were required to have lights on all the time, when sold new, for many years. I know this is about cars/trucks/etc, but riding a MC, you want to be very visible to stay safe. If you notice the cat eye headlights on my bike, I want to tell you, they are super visible, even in the daytime! As Spoon mentioned, motorcycle training, which is defensive riding at it's peak, will make a better driver of you, no matter what you drive. Jerry

RE: Wheel Bearings - re-grease?

He said that it was "greased" 2,000 miles ago. If that included a complete cleaning and inspection of the bearings and then a repack with the proper grease followed by the correct bearing and brake adjustment, then he is good to go for thousands of miles. What are the chances that the service was done correctly? OP also mentioned that is has been sitting for 2 yrs.. Dexters recommendation is 1yr or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. I can also attest to the fact that even just sitting around water can definitely find it's way into the bearings.. Have had that happen to my flatbed utility trailer and no it was never immersed in water. Doesn't hurt to pull and check condition of grease, doing so saved me the loss of a set of bearings and possibly the axle. Since we are following Dexter's service manual, did they mention how to adjust the brakes on page 13? If the OP went out after the first year of sitting in the shed, and greased the bearings, would they be due again now a year later, still parked in the shed? Jerry

RE: Alignment...I think!

Agree with Lyle, on place for alignment check, and could be elongated hanger, shackle, or worn out bushing. Also someone mentioned possible bent axle, from improper jack placement during tire change. Jerry
