RE: Burbman Crosses over to the Dark Side....

The Burb has been a trusty TV for many years but sadly she won't carry our truck camper. After launching a nationwide search I was lucky to find our new truck just a few hours away in NJ. Wasn't looking for a diesel initially but hey, it's never too late to try something new! This was a one-owner truck, bought, serviced, and traded in at the same dealer in NJ. 81k miles. Not a speck of rust underneath, not even surface rust on the frame. Clean Carfax, no accidents, no title issues. No signs of mods except the oversized tires and tinted windows (dealer removed tint so I could pass inspection). So here is our new-to-us 2015 Ram 3500 4x4 Laramie Crew Cab Long Box with Cummins diesel. Here is the window sticker from when it was new. https://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/Burbman/20200524_155236_zpsbretybg4.jpg width=640 So I guess it's time to sell the Burb. They are super rare to find with the 8.1 anymore. the BIG question is what to do about my screen name here....LOL You are a silly feller. You bought a truck you like and nothing dark about this story. Just remember what fuel it likes to enjoy. chevman

RE: Best Fiver these days

I “must” take a differing view on Lippert frames! They “may” build to the manufacuring specifications.....but, they have been plagued with quality control issues. These issues have “zero” to do with manufacturing specifications!!! memtb I have thought this for years. Can't believe a spec would ask for a frame that would have bad welds etc. chevman

RE: TIres, looking for long wearing, all weather load range E

I have a friend with 2 sets of michelin tires on his ram and both cracked very early. I am on our 2nd set with no cracks on the first or the tires on the truck now. I know of many MH michelin tires that looked like a dry desert. Nothing is perfect. chevman

RE: Differential fluid change

I have a drain plug at the bottom with a magnet. 108 K miles on truck diff has been changed 12 times. So easy to do for me so why not. chevman Say wut? If you change the gear oil every oil change interval, how often do you change the engine oil? Are you the guy who changes trans fluid after every road trip, or was that someone else on here? Not me on the trans fluid but my usual oil change has been below 7000 per year. Once went to 11200 and still the lab said go farther but it was a goof up for me and never let that happen again. Truck sits in the garage all summer for 6 months and 6 months each winter towing to Az.It might be a garage queen for a long time since we will hit the road Wednesday for the last trip home. The party is over and it was a dandy. chevman

RE: Banks Electronic Exhaust Brake

On our combined weight of 22920 lbs our 05 does a great job holding back on the downhills. Hope to in a few days to be on the road to wa st and will do the cabbage patch hill for the last time. Never had any issues being under control on any hill. I like simple and I have that. chevman PS might get my wife back tomorrow maybe.

RE: Solar Firm Claims It Has An Electric 700-mile SUV

Triton Solar, formerly known as Solyndra, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fly by night Enterprises made this announcement today in hopes of receiving their buyout offer from Elon Musk,,,,,,, ;) But the 7700lb weight will make it a great Prius crusher. Wasn't it Solyndra the shovel ready that wasn't ready. I remember who wanted that to happen. chevman

RE: 5th Wheel Crushes Truck Follow Up

I will do maybe my last pull test when we can hit the road in May or early June because I just feel better doing it. Lock my hitch also. chevman

RE: 5th Wheel Crushes Truck Follow Up

The couple now drive a 450 ford. chevman PS he seems to be not very experienced on things that move. Not meaning the new truck as that was a great idea to do for them. chevman 2 different guys.... The guy narrating the video with the F450 is NOT the guy who dropped the fiver on hid truck..... I have watched a few of the BigTruck/BigRv YouTube videos.... Some are interesting... some are not.. HE has the 450 I saw the guy drive his new f-450 and saw the 06 chev being driven to the ford's lot. chevman

RE: Anode's Rapid Demise

My 19 Rockwood has an anode rod in the hot water tank.. My 03 Prowler did not.. I never had an issue with that 03 hot water tank in the 16 years I owned that trailer.. Now, I gotta check the **** thing and then buy a new one every year or so if I use magnesium or use aluminum and then risk the whole hot water tank going bad... Great... Wish I had an Atwood in the Rockwood... :) Mitch https://i.imgur.com/XG8H0uzm.jpg?1 If you had an Atwood water heater it doesn't need a rod. chevman

RE: Tires & DOT

I have purchased many tires and tell the dealer I want tires with less than 6 months old. Can you do that? yes and it always worked even once the tires arrived much older and he didn't except. The time needs to be not needing tires in a hurry. Discount tire has worked for me after the other local dealer sold and went to Mexico to live. 18 truck tires, 25 trailer tires, 4 suv tires and 4 tires on the new equinox. It can be done. I want to be the boss and on the road the boss is the tire shop. chevman

RE: 1974 Chevy Truck Comparison to Ford

I never drove a ford that compared to any GM I owned new or used. Tested a ford suv before we bought the chev Equinox. Not in the same league for me. Left to right gets old driving. To tell what is needed to fix steering should be from the factory build not having to have work down. Even driving an older gmc work truck for the company I was building for a newer ford would arrive and service done on the GMC. Couuldn't to lose the ford and back to the older nice driving truck. Probably why I am chevman. Had many discussions with nice ford owners and wandering was a lot of their stories. chevman
