RE: Bought a second truck.

I love to see that ! ! ! Me too. And I love doing it too. Yup, just the fun of being a motorhead! Very common; then they deemed a short burn, from a stop light, just halfway across an intersection, EXIHIBITION DRIVING! Go figure? Jerry

RE: Relationship between jacks and slides?

You may get better response by posting in the tech section? Ugh. Those guys are mean. Even the simplest question turns into a wiener measuring contest with that group. Not interested. Lol..lots of chest thumpers over there for sure!:B My good buddy Howard, above, is a great source of reliable info, that I would trust!

RE: Relationship between jacks and slides?

I know and understand my rack and pinion electric slide system, but not the sharpest tack, on the several other types. :) Is it possible that your system is hydraulic jacks, but slides are simply operated by the electric motor? You did say the fluid level does not change, while moving the slides. You may get better response by posting in the tech section? Jerry

RE: Dometic ceiling fan inoperable

I don't have a clue, but my fan hasn't been that clean in years! Well, your not much help...but I'll help you! You need to change your maid service! Agree with ron above. Jerry

RE: Re-sealing the nose of a fifth wheel

To check the front cap roof top, someone has to get on the roof, and inspect very closely. Most newer roofs are rounded, so even if the leak is near the driver side, it could originate from center of roof. Another possible source, for a leak, in that area, would be the clearance lights. If water sets in the cutout for them, during hard rain, it could reach the hole the wires come through, behind the lights. If you are not comfortable getting on the roof, I'd suggest having someone else check for you. Jerry

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

^^^ It’s not posted as fact anywhere as far as I know….. it’s just me thinking it’s pretty tough to compete in a 500 HP/10 speed market with 420 ponies and 6 gears. "the 2023 Ram is apt to take a big hit in depreciation when the ‘24 comes out with 8 gears and 480 horsepower / 1200 lbft of torque." You will lose credibility by making these type statements. If you would have said guessing, or if, in that remark, you wouldn't be providing false info. Yes, you did clear that up, after being confronted. Jerry OUCH!!! That even hurt me Jerry!!! :B He is actually the one that said the 6 x 6 is just fine and would not make much difference with more gears. As mentioned WHY in the HE!! change when you have combo's that do the job reliably. I will repeat, I tow way more weight than most anyone here at 35k combined West Coast and have ZERO reason to want more gears or power. I have owned both trans and I love them both. Harsh...not intended. Just a tip for a respected member, that many trust to be stating facts, when in this case it wasn't. Good that you asked him! My opinion...I agree, with the Ram not NEEDING more than a stout 6-speed. I do think similar to others opinions, that since technology continues to advance for Ford/GM, at some point Ram will follow. Right/wrong, it will be considered upgrading the drivetrain and body/frame/styling.:) Jerry

RE: Old truck, new look…

https://i.imgur.com/85yp3ufl.jpg IMO, those wheels add a masculine look, rather than pimp. Nice!! Thanks for posting the pic! Yup, reds do match! Also lots of room for a good pic, in the no park red zone. A trick likely learned from his Dad. :) Jerry

RE: DISCUSSION: 8 ft + crew cab vs. SUV

Make this new crew cab a HD 35 series truck, and add a fifth wheel trailer. You'll wonder why you've been towing a TT the last 20 years. Nothin wrong with crabby, just a product of getting older! Jerry

RE: 2023 camping season

I wish MORE RV folks would 'cut back'.. ha, ha... That would make it easier to get reservations at the parks I want to go to.. I can't just pick up and go on a whim.. I do not wish to just "camp" in a parking lot type of park. I was paying $6/gallon gas last season, so I guess since eggs are now $3/dozen, I might just have to make smaller omelets on the Blackstone! :) Mitch https://i.imgur.com/XG8H0uzm.jpg?1 Hey Mitch...where ya gettin those $3 doz eggs? Walmart here is $5.80 doz! Is it possible to make a 1 egg omelet??:) I don't get concerned over gas prices, in fact, when towing, most always use pure premium. Jerry

RE: Old truck, new look…

That is a great looking truck! Having a bad a$$ ride, or sweet ride, will build character/confidence in good boys. Have you got a pic of the Pony, with the new pimp wheels on it? Jerry

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

Several statements above are correct. Some people should not have a dog. Dogs are much smarter than most people could imagine. A person that has never had a dog, will never understand why others fully appreciate the experience. Just owning a dog, that lives it's life outside, in a 6x8 pen, just giving it food/water, is not a good experience for dog, or owner. Like most things experienced in life, you get out of it, what you put into it. Yes, a dog is capable of being your best friend! Jerry

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

My daughter ordered a new Bronco coming up two years ago and we still haven't got a production date. Maybe if you order a new Super Duty today you'll have your 350k miles on the '12 by the time the new one shows up.:) There's no vehicle on the road worth waiting 2 years for. I'd have picked something else way before now. Absolutely...well past time to move on! Dealer should happily return any deposit! Even waiting for 1 year, is hard to justify, but going on 2, no matter the excuse, find another dealer/vehicle.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Hey Benny...welcome to the forum! Lots of good info, and education! Only thing being left out in this thread, is political posts, as that is not allowed. :) Jerry

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

Old myths. Modern diesels only need to warm up 3 or 4 minutes and aren't problematic to start. Things were different waaay back. On the other hand, that big throbbing engine may make them feel so frisky they need another few minutes to get on the road. They would have to be OTR truckers, used to being "frisky" while that diesel is hammering away, beside the truck stop cafe. This could just be an "old myth" too?? Jerry

RE: Another heated water hose question

I would put water in holding tank for night use. After weather warms up during the day use city water connection. Disconnect hose and filter and put inside for night. This is the obvious solution. OP...is there a reason you cannot use your fresh tank? Jerry

RE: Should I Buy The Dealer's Hitch

It's not just how much will it pull, 150-250, but the rear axle and tire capacity difference is huge in comparison. A trailer weighing 9K lbs will have a heavy tongue, plus any other wt added to truck bed, which is mostly being carried by the rear axle. Jerry

RE: What roof vent covers for Fantastic Fans

Just an FYI, but in looking at the new style Maxx-Air-2 in black they no longer have the screen, and now a bit easier mount as well. I plan to put these on my 14x14 OEM vents with small fan. I think the new style maxx air, for high powered fans, no longer comes with supplied screen, but can be added with optional screen. It appears like maxx air is also implying that a screen is not needed? Jerry

RE: Towing 5th with an Andersen Hitch in Short Bed Truck

If above is true, and warranty voided (first time I've heard this), seems they would have a reason? Does anyone know what this reason is? I agree, the leverage issue, of the old gooseneck attachment, would not be present with the Andersen. I could see where a FW could tilt further on an Andersen ball, more so than with most conventional hitches, maybe causing a little more strain on the frame? Anyway, like mentioned above, the hitch will work for the OP if he learns the limitations, like many of us have, when not using a long bed truck. I'll add, to the OP, that I'd not use the B&W bed mounted extended ball, to move the connection further rearward. IMO, this would possibly cause further issues, such as tailgate, or bedrail damage.

RE: burbing fridge

Like many things in life, some are luckier than others. It may only work properly for a short time, or if you are lucky, it may work for a long time. Only you can decide, should I just replace the cooling unit now, while convenient, or wait till it quits again, at a time I really need it. Another thought, is why did it have blockage? Most times from operating off level. In the future, try to keep the trailer closer to level, while running the fridge. Jerry
