RE: New motor home blues…

I think I would skip the dealer and just park it at the front door in Red Bay Alabama.

RE: Trick or Treat Buckets!

Been working for me a couple years now. ASME certified for 24mph stationary. I'm thinking up another "hack" for protecting the rear awning. The plastic gutters didn't work for me.

Trick or Treat Buckets!

Get 'em before they're gone. WalMart has the 5 quart trick or treat buckets in stock. 98 cents. Perfect for putting over the top of HappiJac motors and gearboxes. I use a bread twist tie to secure the bail to the motor wire, or the clip that holds the wire.

RE: Need your help, ideas

We just use a cheap one step plastic stool. Keep on the back seat with a towel under it.

RE: Tires again

I had Carlisles on Montana HC with no issues. Up sized to a pre owned 18,000 GVW landmark that had Sailuns. Had one blow out in nowhere New Mexico. Replaced with Hercules Strong Guard. Have maybe 8,000 miles on them. No problems so far.

RE: Hmm... another use for Tork-Lift?

Fairly common sight in oilfield country, carrying pipe and tubing.

RE: Decals cracking!

Somewhere in the world of you tube is a video of a guy painting OVER the decals. Looked good. Not especially difficult. Blue painters tape and rattle can paint. I'll look around in my favorites and see if I saved it.

RE: New license plate for my TC.

Texas requires a front plate. I never had one on my Corvette and it was never an issue.

RE: Ram 3500 issue

You have a point. Manual says 75w-90. Guess I will go with that and see if it helps. Thanks for your input.

RE: Ram 3500 issue

I bought 5 quarts of Valvoline full synthetic 75w-140 gear oil. Will let the dealer change it when I'm there next week for a oil change.

RE: Ram 3500 issue

I'm changing my mind, or losing it. I've been hard on the road and am wore out. In my original post I almost said it feels like a broke pinion or ring gear. I'll be home tonight and will be shopping for synthetic gear oil. I'll do that before the dealer runs a bill on me changing parts.

RE: Ram 3500 issue

Does the 2018 Ram 3500 have the infamous Ram plastic u joints, like earlier 2500?
TxGearhead 08/26/21 08:16pm Tow Vehicles
RE: Ram 3500 issue

What I'm thinking..front u joints. No noise at all. Does fine going straight or moderate speed curves.

Ram 3500 issue

2018 Ram 3500, Cummins, Aisin, 3.73. I began noticing a few months ago that under very light braking...backing out of the garage and turning, I felt a jerking. I'm on the road and almost back home. It is very pronounced while pulling the 5th. Taking off from a stop and turning it acts like it's in 4 wheel drive. Sitting around the campground a couple weeks ago I mentioned it. One guy said his employer had a fleet of Rams that would do the same when in skid control and in 4x4. I turned skid control off and could tell no difference. Almost feels like a u-joint or posi trac differential clutches grabbing. Anyone heard of this or experienced it? I'm due to visit my dealer when I get home and will get them to look. Just rolled 50,000 miles.

RE: Towing a 42 footer… What do you think?

We started with a 28ft, then a 35ft, and now a 40ft.I couldn't get in many spots in Smokey Mt Nat Park with the 28ft., so no great loss with the 40ft. Right now I'm sitting in a state recreation area in Illinois with plenty of room. I have maybe 10ft of RV hanging over the end of the site driveway. We have stayed at many state parks and COE campgrounds. You do have to "shop" wisely though.

RE: Tires...I know, tired subject

FYI...I saw somewhere that Carlisle was making a steel cased tire in 15". had the best price when I bought Carlisle HD.

RE: Truck Camper carport

I've been on/off about one of those carports. I've got a 40ft 5th wheel, Bigfoot, 18ft GoDevil mud boat and a utility trailer sitting out in the Texas sun. I was thinking about running 40 or 44ft concrete runners X 24" wide to anchor it on. Probably 14ft tall. Two panels on the sides for 6ft of side sun protection. Looking at Alans Factory it's fairly easy to price one out. Then compare to whoever else.

RE: Skidaway Island SP GA upgrades

As I remember it you would need a chainsaw. The wife refused to get on top of the 5th and tell me over the cell phone if I would hit or not. LOL Seriously, it's a tourist town and they need to clear a route to the campground.
