RE: 2011 Ram HD 3500 DRW Cummins 68RFE 523k miles!

The only thing in our snowbird park that came close to winning the noise contest over my mildly tuned 24V was the garbage truck and the 7.3 PS's, I still hear a couple 7.3's in the park along with early 5.9 Cummins. The 7.3's do require more maintenance than the early 5.9's. Yes , my early 99 Superduty was as loud as any I've heard ,IMO there were a lot of them more quiet then mine . It finally wore its welcome out after nearly 16 years, great truck, but no power compared to the new ones, one of the reason, plus as said the maintenance n cooling system , additive etc. to finally trade it in .

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

They should have a chart, based on time, how many people are still in denial! What I am reading in this thread is pretty remarkable.Sobering, isn't it? My home borders a small city park . You don’t know the half of it . I see it daily from my patio window , and I can guarantee there is no social distancing going on with many , and I only see a small sampling .

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

I believe that nearly everyone will be fine. That's agreed to by almost all the people involved. The numbers usually thrown around that I've seen is over 90%, and around 80% of the people who show symptoms will be mild cases. IOW, if people had ignored the hype from the media, stayed at home if they were feeling sick, stayed at home unless they really needed to go out, and stayed away from crowds, we wouldn't be having the hysteria fanned by the media. Most people will be able to do their jobs, most people will be able to get things to the grocery stores, shops and such. Closing sporting events, slowing mass crowd convergences is a good thing. No one, and I me NO ONE knows positively what will happen over the coming months, but acting like the depression is around the corner and acting like it's the end of civilization is simply asinine. Stay home, chill out, and self-medicate, with the drug of choice. Mine is beer, just not any of that lite stuff that calls itself beer. Dark ales, all the way. What I believe this is real , and I agree we need to chill and stay home . But until “ALL” take this seriously , we are in for some bad shi!! and a long haul . We are a free society that a lot of us think that we are free to do what we want. We had a 24 year test positive a couple days ago here in our county in Utah . Went skiing with his buddies to Colorado . At least one of his buddies tested positive also . They interviewed him and one of his comments were , I wished I had listened . There lies our biggest enemy with this fight , not listening to the warnings . We need to think people

RE: Gas prices

Last time I fueled I had CC in left hand inserted used right to give info on push buttons. Pulled CC with clean left and and placed in my pocket. Removed nozzle and proceeded to fill. OH I had left my door open so I reach in without touching anything and pump Purell into my hands and vigorously rub. I set in the truck and wait for nozzle to click. I get out with door left open and finish topping off with right hand and re insert nozzle. I then push button for receipt with "contaminated right hand that I have been using since exiting truck. Receipt appears I grab with left hand and place it in the console then my right hand pumps Purell and scrub away. I am now clean and get back into truck and drive away. I don't use gloves as they will be contaminated and then what do you do with them. Bottom line "THINK" about every thing you touch!!! Nice, basically doing the same . Hopefully some on here will get the message . I also agree on the gloves, I too thought about that. I haven't used any gloves.

RE: Do you know a good mail-order compounding pharmacy?

Express Scripts, my mother used them for years . Compounding? I misspoke , I really don’t know. I wasn’t paying attention to the compounding , I was just thinking getting meds shipped to you . My mistake.

RE: Gas prices

had you been taking every precaution prior to this virus? i gotta tell ya...been buying gas since 1966 and can’t recall ever seeing anyone...’civilian or employee...use gloves at the gas pumps. lots of germs out there. Got you beat , since 1962 , never gave a thought until now . I have a friend he uses glove only because he doesn't want diesel on his hands. Not sure what you are asking ,what don't worry about the fuel handle or key pad, not sure that would be a wise choice.

RE: Gas prices

Did you even stop ,and think before you replied . Please come back ,and let me know when you have . If I don't hear back , then I assume you can't figure it out, and good luck to you . Thanks unnecessarily snarky response, and travel is required for food/medical attention, etc. so please explain to me the problem with fueling up at a self service pump? guess NJ requires an attendant, perhaps other areas? bumpy Snarky, yes . Unnecessary, no ! Read his reply again, "how is that putting yourself or anyone else in danger" Should that really have to be explained :h Of course we have to get fuel for "essential travel " . I really wanted to add another snarky response to your post, but let me explain where the problem is with you ,and him . I don't assume anything when it comes to this. So what I am thinking when he responded to my post, was this, he just lifted a pump handle , typed in a zip code, and filled up. I don't assume he's washed his hands ,or put on rubber gloves to protect himself, or the person before him or before or before or before. Get the point . There is a lot of people doing STUPID things right now, be smart at the pump is what I am getting at. Last time you filled up ,be honest what did you do . I"ll be honest with you, I took every precaution I could.

RE: Gas prices

Starting the stampede. Gas price .99 Not sure thats the smartest thing to post, when we are encouraged to stay put, and not travel if possible . So if you can get in your vehicle, drive to the gas station & pay-at-the-pump how is that putting yourself or anyone else in danger? Did you even stop ,and think before you replied . Please come back ,and let me know when you have . If I don't hear back , then I assume you can't figure it out, and good luck to you . Thanks

RE: Trying to decide which way to go on fifth wheel hitch

Not a fan of the Andersen aluminum, which is probably what your neighbor had ,I'm guessing . But thats not the subject here, its the steel rail mount Andersen. As far rocks , had to be ,that or sand or dirt. My previous truck had the bedrails, and don't remember hauling rocks, but I did haul some mulch ,and top soil. no big deal ,but I did cover the bed with a heavy tarp . It was not earth ending dealing with the bedrails .

RE: Question for those out on the road now

Thinking about doing some traveling. I usually avoid spring break time. Are those of you out on the road seeing a lot of college age folks. Particularly interested to hear from those of you in northern New Mexico, Big Bend or coast of Texas. I guess you haven't got the memo about unnecessary travel :h

RE: Canadians heading north...

And Mexicans heading south. Enough with the "Ugly American" attitude. Yes, I love America and Canada is pretty darn cool. Travelon I agree ,its not the time for this .

RE: Trying to decide which way to go on fifth wheel hitch

Replace/install new rails, get a standard hitch to meet your capacity and keep what's on the trailer. If you are so tight on a turn, go opposite direction slowly to straighten up and try turn again. Had a slider hitch for over 10 years. Used it once. Got new hitch w/o slider for short bed truck, no probs. Just go slow-n-easy. Well said, and IMO the best way to go for the OP .

RE: Trying to decide which way to go on fifth wheel hitch

Well said 2014... and adding the turnover ball a waste, unless actually needed for a different goose neck trailer. Jerry I sat thinking my last post over for quite a while, and actually deleted what I am about to say. As a former truck driver, if I bought a vehicle with an Anderson hitch, I wouldn't use it any farther than to get me home. No different than any sliding bar hitch. Not sure what being a former truck driver ,and the Andersen hitch has to do with anything, but truck driver or not, how many miles you put on a Andersen hitch :h . I have put a few thousand now on a rail mount steel Andersen ,so I have been a bit further then just getting home :)
