RE: Let’s hear your best MPG and driving style ?

I’m kinda like Gjac - my Kenworth with dools does um…10ish mpg hauling the toy hauler. My motorcycle does 50-60mpg ridin around once I’m camped.

RE: One more advantage of extended cabover on a regular cab PU

Is yours quiet way back like that? Its noteven quiet................ sorry ;) I have my share of wind noise but I don't have anything to compare it to. :B Do you remember Sleepy’s thread about designing a perforated air dam installed under the overhead- it eliminated the top of the doors wind noise and added a couple m’spg and kept the bugs off the front of the camper behind the cab.

RE: One more advantage of extended cabover on a regular cab PU

Most of my front doors stick out ahead of the camper overhead. so my front winda will get frosty BUT annoying cross wind side wind angle wind messing with the cab aero's so the top of the doors have wind whistle air leaks racket? Nope. Quiet. Is yours quiet way back like that?

RE: Running lights on cars

Gdetrailer - I share your concerns around driving as a secondary activity to texting, eating, talking on hand held phone, poking at an on board computer screen etc etc for sure. I don't think DRL should be mandated - I ran with lights on before it was mandated in Canada, I drove for 2 trucking companies that required running lights on before it was mandated. If people want to run with less visibility than they could have that's fine. The vehicle that doesn't see them due to blending with a background might be substantially larger and cream them a good one. The other control we don't use correctly in USA and Canada much is the "visual horn" or momentary high beam flash on the high low beam multi switch. It is a major affront to the other driver to flash your high beams "do you see me?" as they are driving in your lane passing without enough room. And oh lord if you use them as in Europe - "I am travelling at much higher speed than you and am overtaking" or "I am overtaking you" on a 2 lane

RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

Questions for you air brake equipped 80 mph folks: After you react to the need for emergency braking at 80 mph how far does your motorhome travel from the time you stomp the foot valve until the brakes apply? What is the correct control input at 80 mph when you blow a steer tire? If you blow a steer tire at cruise speed like what is shown in the first 1 minute of this video which ditch do you prefer to flop it in? you toob link

RE: Running lights on cars

So I am travelling in southern California one time in the winter. Over a little pass I go and it is raining on the other side toward the coast. All the vehicles coming at me have their headlights on in the rain. I am thinking gee these California drivers are smart not like the cool kids back home that disable their daytime running lights so you can't see them in the rain - these people turn on their headlights in the rain. I am busy telling my CA people how smart these drivers are and B pipes up "it's the law..." I was immediately mad about it because it is mandated.

RE: 2 cycle oil Dodge 5.9 diesel

I usta be around heavy trucks. Cummins wanted to see oil consumption records approaching a gallon used in 1000 to 1500 miles depending on circumstances before justifying a warranty overhaul. Such a problem was rare and did not wreck the aftertreatment system when it occurred.

RE: LAND BORDER DUE TO OPEN EARLY NOVEMBER

I'm not sure I want to go south just yet. As of yesterday: 84,154 new cases 1,480 new deaths 9,695,610 active cases. Round up USA to 10,000,000 active / 350,000,000 population = 2857 active per 100,000 population. Saskatchewan 73,057 active / 1,000,000 population = 7305 active per 100,000 population. Do you practice any kind of gun safety? Statistics say just 27,000 people a year are accidentally shot in the US, not much of a risk right? 330,000,000 people, 27,000 shootings, so less than 8.2 per 100,000 population per YEAR. Do I practice “gun safety”? Yes, as I was trained. This has to do what with the land border opening? Just that there is risks in every breathe we take. I apologize if it was taken personally brother, it was only meant as an illustration. Seatbelts, road safety, gun safety, food safety, everybody seems to be happy (or sad) with wildly differing levels of risk. In a lot of cases it seems to be way more political than factual or based in science. Apology accepted JaxDad - I understand what you meant now. I'm pretty much done with the daily dose of fear mongering. I'm going to ride my motorcycle tomorrow. Possibly a bit over the speed mandate on gravel and dirt roads. And then dodge a few texting drivers on a main road or two. If I survive that I'm going to cook something high fat on the barbeque and then watch the sunset and northern lights.

Mexico TIP GVW - no "one ton" trucks or above?

There was controversy a while ago about Mexico not issuing permits for tow vehicles and non “motorhome” vehicles over a certain weight/mass and configuration such as a flatbed carrying a camper. Some travellers were having success by obtaining a permit online vs appearing at a port of entry. Anyone have recent experience with this? Edit: I found this website with information. It appears that if your vehicle is not an "RV" you are limited to 3.5 tonnes or 7716 lbs GVWR in a tow vehicle or slide in camper hauler. Motoring Mexico dot com website

RE: 2 cycle oil Dodge 5.9 diesel

2 cycle oil is designed to burn as cleanly as possible. It shouldn’t hurt a diesel in moderation. I’m not sure how it likes being compressed to 35000 psi’s in a common rail fuel system. The manual for my old mechanical diesel Land Cruiser says emergency fuel can be made from 3 parts gasoline to 1 part 30 weight engine oil if necessary. It was built before the internet so that could be danger danger now.

RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

The success of hitching up “first time” decreases in proportion to the size of the peanut gallery. One time camped waaaay out north of the Middle of Noplace I backs in going to stop and get out and look and gentle “thump”. Chit! I’ve hit the hitch and knocked it sideways! Noooo! I jumps out and look. I had hit it so perfect I closed the latches by hand.

RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

I used a PP3 mounted on an Air Safe suspension hitch towing a 12,500lbs 32 ft tandem axle travel trailer. The PP3 controlled sway and the Air Safe controlled fore and aft chucking/jerking.
