RE: Time for new tires already?

30k on LT tires is about right. Huh? Or do you mean on OE LT tires? The Pirellis on my Excursion went around 40k. I replaced them with some BFG AT TAs and they on,y went about 30k. I replaced them with some General Grabber HTS and they went about 45k. OE AT tires will only go 30-35k at most when towing. HT (highway tires) will last longer as it’s a straight highway tread with a harder compound. AT tires (All Terrain) have a more rugged tread and a softer compound.

RE: Leaky roof, any ideas where it’s coming from ?

If they just put a roof on it and you are seeing this, avoid it. It’s one thing to have it happen after you buy it, it’s another to purchase knowing it’s currently their.

RE: Diesel Ram Owner Forced to Scrap Truck !

I just ran into something close to this at work. We got a truck from one of our other dealers for a possible trans issue. They took it in on trade and sold it not knowing it had an issue. Well it turns out it’s been, lifted, deleted, tuned, Def tank removed as well as DPF and catalyst. I told them to just wholesale it and be done with it! It will be a problem later on when the customer has to have it tested and they found out we sold it like that! It will cost too much for us to make it stock. Best to sell it in an area where they don’t have inspections and the buyer won’t care! Excuse me for finding it hard to believe a dealer would not find any of all that stuff when doing a trade in valuation. Any time I ever let one value a trade within minutes they could tell me where every single scratch or paint chip was, tires needed replaced as they had put a micrometer on the tread depth, and knew the bumper end cap was replaced with an aftermarket part after a run in with a groundhog. They could also tell I smoked a cigarette in it once on the way home from buying it 5 years earlier. They could not see the DEF tank was gone? Lol. I think your employer needs to fire whoever approved that one immediatly. I don’t know, but places take in any trade, but this one should’ve went right to wholesale. But I went to fill it with diesel because it was on E and I think that is the problem with the truck it was running out of fuel on acceleration. Well the 1/2 of what I put in runs on the ground. This was from another dealer, some places have people up front that don’t know a thing about cars, even though they sell them!

RE: Alcohol Detection Systems in All New Vehicles

At this point, cell phone use while driving is a bigger danger than drinking and driving!

RE: what size inverter.

Just got a 3000W inverter for my MH. It’s only to run outlets and maybe the microwave on the road. I only have 2 batteries, but will never pull the full wattage. It when it comes time for batteries I’m thinking 3 100Ah LifePo batteries.

RE: Stolen Ford 350

I hope the settlement they agreed to was the down payment back and closing of the loan with no money out of their pockets!

RE: Changing oil.

Must be a 15,000+ mile trip? Please don’t tell us you go 15k miles on your V-10/ V8 gas oil changes?!!!!

I’m a Christian, raised Catholic, but they lost me after the 2nd blessed in the same amount of paragraphs!

RE: How To Clean This

A razor blade. Score the sealant athen remove the trim. Then gently take a new blade and cut the sealant flush with the surface, with the blade almost flat with the surface. Then clean it up with some adhesive remover. They make plastic razors if you are worried about damaging the surface.

RE: Lithium crossing the acceptance threshold…

I miss a good spirited debate about LFP. I hear they start airplanes on fire and phones burst into flames. ;) Yep, I too can recall that the mythologies sure seemed to run rather deep!! 3 tons They can and do, just not to the extent as some would have you believe! But when they do catch on fire, good luck putting one out!

RE: CARB smog testing motorhomes Every 4months by 2024

Nobody is denying you your right to recreate in a big RV. They are simoly trying to stop you from poluting the earth while you do it. 4 times a year is more than a bit much! I’m fact I would say that RVs should be at the bottom of the list for vehicles to inspect! How about the deleted and tuned trucks running around. One of those pollutes 100 times more than a single clean RV.

RE: RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Productions Ends in January

Coming from a certified diesel tech, great!!! Any diesel with the word ECO in its name is a ticking time bomb! Even the newer HD diesels aren’t as reliable due to the emissions carp they slap onto it!

RE: Electric brakes

It might not like old magnets mixed with new. I would’ve just replaced all 4 at the same time! :R Brake controller doesn't know and doesn't care what brake magnets are attached, how new or old they are, what brand or color, big, fat ugly nor what day you installed them, time of day, temperature they were installed, if they were installed upside down, inside out or sideways.. OPs issue is commonly an electrical connection issue which may have been user induced when replacing the magnets. Op just needs to start looking at the work they did to verify their electrical connections they made are solid since the problem they now have started after they cut and spliced.. On edit.. Some controllers will disconnect/shutdown output if a short is detected, some will show a error which indicates short.. Don't know what the OPs brake controller is but guessing it may be one that disconnects on short. If OPs controller is one that disconnects on a short then they need to check the magnet wires inside the brake drum to make sure the wires did not get pinched to the point of bare wire touching metal.. If OP finds a bare magnet wire, they can black tape it and then reroute the wires so they can no longer get tangled up in the mechanical parts. Yes, and your edit is what I was saying about mixing old with new! It gets even pickier on new trucks with the built in brake controller that is diagnosed by the truck!

RE: Lithium crossing the acceptance threshold…

I think the main Hangul was the price. Now that you can get decent LiFPo batteries in the $300 range they are a game changer. I was never against them, other than the price of $900 plus for the high end ones. Now that I can do 3 decent LiFPos for the cost of one high end battery it’s definitely worth the money for those of us that don’t full time or boondock.

RE: inverter not charging the battery

Without knowing anything else, from your description, it sounds as if the disconnect switch is labeled backwards!

RE: Brakes grabbing

RE: Changing oil.

I do my own. If I’m going to be on the road and the oil change is due in 1-2 thousand miles I’ll do it before I leave. I go 5 k on oil changes.
