TPMS Battery

For those of you that have changed the batteries in your TPMS, have you found that the unit holds a residual memory or do you have to completely have to re-program the units? Getting ready to change out the batteries and would like to know what to expect. Thanks in advance for all your help.

RE: Rain gutter

Thanks, cavie. I have already sourced the rain gutter, just wondering how well it would work on the ramp door. I figure that I woul have to put a small taper on each side going down from the middle of the door but dont want to waste my time if it doesn't work.

Rain gutter

Question for those of you that own a toy hauler. Do you have a rain gutter running along the top or just above the ramp door? Mine has developed a slight leak at the top and I will be replacing the seal and was also thinking about adding a rain gutter along the width of the ramp door. I saw a photo of a work and play that had the gutter but it was an old pic from a three year old post. Just curious as to how good of a job they do in getting the rain water away from the door. Thanks in advance for all you help.

TPMS

Going to be programming my TPMS and was wondering what number you guys and gals use as the high limit of the temperature alarm. Since I am not sure what it is set at now I want to go back into the unit and set it or at the very least double check it. Thanks in advance for all of the help. It is greatly appreciated.

RE: Plan a Trip section

My biggest complaint is that I can no longer import trips to my Rand-McNally GPS. I really have not used the trip planner since last summer so I can not comment on any of the other features or lack of.

Anode replacement

Just curious as to how long the water heater(Suburban) would last if the anode were to be replace with a plug like Atwood uses. Not planning on doing this but would be nice to know if needed in an emergency.

RE: Blackstone Griddle

I dont own any type of griddle but my thinking is why not just purchase one of the stand alone griddle plates and use your camping stove with it. Seems as if it would cut down on the need for a multitude of differant types of cookware and the Coleman camp stove can be converted to run off of your trailer propane. Just my opinion, take it for what it is worth. In theory what your thinking is a viable solution. Where the Blackstone shines is it's ability to hold the heat and it ease of cleaning. If we ignore the cleaning factor The Blackstone cooks very well be cause it is a dedicated device designed to solely be a griddle. I agree the Blackstone is not as versatile it is designed to do one thing! It performs as a griddle very well. Much better than any multi purpose grill. Yes it becomes one more thing to bring along ...LOL.. I would think that the Lodge stand alone griddle or one similiar would hold the heat just as well. Also, using the stove one has the ability to adjust the heat from the burners as needed.

RE: 6.4l 8 speed towing review

I was looking at the 2019 6.4 with the 8 speed today. Almost pulled the trigger but wanted to research a little more. MY question to you guys is, does this truck come with the tranny and engine oil coolers. I have looked all over the web, dealer sites and Ram site and have not been able to find this information. I can not find it even as an option. Salesman I spoke with today said that since the truck as configured is rated to tow 16k it did not need these two items. Since his mouth was moving, I am not real sure about that comment. I just want to be sure as I don't want to make a 45k+ mistake. Thanks in advance for all your help

Level trailer

I think we all agree that the best towing experience is had by having a trailer that is level or slightly nose down. My questions is, what is considered to be "slightly nose down". I am sure everyone has there own views on this, Not trying to start an argument, just curious as I have not seen any mention of this on any of the forums that I frequent. I tow a 30 foot toy hauler so I would think that "slightly" could be anywhere from 1/2 inch to possibly 6 inches. Over 30 feet that does not seem like all that much but would like to know what others think. As I said just trying to gain some more information regarding towing a travel trailer. Currently my toy hauler sits level but we all know that tongue weight can change drastically when loaded with a different toy. Depending on weight, length and/or location of the toy. Again, just trying to add to my knowledge base. Thanks in advance for all your replies.

Suspenson

Thinking about doing a small up grade to the suspension on my 26TH toy hauler. I am trying to decide between the MORryde UO12-016 Heavy Duty Shackle Upgrade Kit or the DEXTER AXLE (K71-359-00 Heavy Duty Suspension Kit. The only difference is that the Dexter kit includes new equalizers also. Price difference is about $50.00, so that is not really an issue. Both kits come with new bronze bushings, wet bolts and the heavier shackles. My question is which way would you guys go, Moryde or Dexter. At this time I am not even considering the more expensive equalizers or the shock kits. Just looking for some opinions on those two. The trailer has about 8000 miles on it right now and I just finished doing the bearing repack. I have not taken the suspension apart to check to see how bad the original is but every thing I have read says it is only good for a couple of thousand miles. Thanks in advance for your help and all opinions are appreciated.

RE: GS Trip Planner

On our trip out west last year I used a combination of Rand-McNally trip maker and RVParky. With RVParky you can put in your destination and use the "Find a Place to stay" button and review all the places in the area that you can stay overnight. Once all done I just duplicated everything on the RM trip planner. It takes a little more work then just the GS but I felt it worked just as well. For those of you that are IT and GPS experts, there is a way to download the RVParky plan intao the RM gps. I dnt have the needed skills to do that but from what I have readit seems to work just as well. I just looked at the RVParky web site and it appears that possibly they have made changes to be compatible with RM but I would look at it to be sure.
