RE: MPG and RPM Question for Chevy truck-New RVers

It was pretty windy and raining that day. The next day we got closer to 7.5. I have seen a few of you mention different gears. Should we be pulling in something other than automatic? I think I might be confused. I know you can take it out of automatic, is that what we should do and put it in a different gear? If so, what gear do you recommend? Sorry if that is a silly question! Thanks for all the help! If your not in rolling hill country or stop and go traffic, with a 7500 lb trailer behind a 6.0 GM 2500 take it out of tow/haul. Don't use the tow/haul on an interstate or other 4 lane highway. Use tow haul, tow haul keeps the line pressures up. I called a transmission shop before I ever towed with mine. Besides line pressures, up-shifts are delayed. I have found that my 6.0 HD with 3.72 likes 55. I'm lazy and use the cruise, at this speed the RPM's stay down more. I get about 10mpg towing about 6,000 lbs.

RE: Check Engine Light

Plugs are not monitored by the ECM. the coil pack is the last point. That is not an accurate statement. What is actually monitored is does each cylinder give an equal amount of power for each combustion event. There are literally dozens of reasons why a cylinder is not "contributing" equally. Bad plug or bad coil are two. Admittedly they are easy items to replace. If you have not replaced the plugs, do that first. Do all 8 as you are overdue. Stick with the EXACT SAME PLUGS ! (Motorcraft SP548 Why not ? The first set gave you good life !) Before you reinstall the coils, carefully inspect the inside of each boot. If you see any carbon tracking YOU MUST REPLACE THE BOOT ! Many auto parts stores do not stock just the boots (they would rather sell you the much more expensive coil) but they are available online. Also put a dab of dielectric grease on the inside of each boot. They will side on easier and will be less likely to arc. If you do choose to replace the coil or can not find just the boot, again, stick with the exact same Motorcraft coil (DG542). Amazon has good prices on both. Best answer. Replace the plugs for sure. Ditto to use Motorcraft coil.

RE: JackKnife Sofa, Back Webbing is broken.

I used huge zip ties, 2 hooked end to end were long enough. This is not a bad idea also, especially since this is only for the back upright support. The bottom of my sofa, has actual spring wire.

RE: JackKnife Sofa, Back Webbing is broken.

Thanks for all the help. I'm going to use this shipping strap kit from Amazon: Shipping kit on Amazon I'm also going to get some hog ties, in case I have to take the upholstery off. Robert Wynkoop

RE: JackKnife Sofa, Back Webbing is broken.

The trick is getting the new banding installed. I stapled the ends of the old and new together and just pulled the new banding in Oh, that is a good trick. I might try pulling the new stuff in that way.

RE: Where to put load leveling hitch

I keep Equalizer(brand) head and bars in the front compartment of my camper. I keep boards and foot here also when not in use. I did not want it moving around in the bed of the pickup. When it is in the camper, the camper is never moving, so I do not have to worry about it moving. Robert Wynkoop

JackKnife Sofa, Back Webbing is broken.

Hey all, I have a 2007 Jayco that has a JackKnife sofa in the raised slide. The webbing(would be springs, if not build so cheap) is all busted. The webbing actually looks like and is probably the same banding stuff used to bundle large boxes and boxes of paper. You know, the white plastic bands you have to cut. The slide box is the riser for the sofa. Has anyone had one of these repaired? I can do it myself, but I have not figured out where I can get tools / material to fix the bands. I'm open to a different method than factory, as it looks not built to last at all. Trailer is a 2007 29BHS Jayco. Thanks, for any help. Robert Wynkoop

RE: Yet another CO detector low voltage question

I see the same thing with my wired co detector. It starts to beep around less then 12v, 11.8v sounds about right, but the furnace was also running hard on a separate circuit. 11.8 is measured by my solar controller, near the battery. My detector is new. I replaced it once thinking it was defective due to the beeping. Robert Wynkoop
