RE: rear camera for toad

after you figure out what style you want, call https://www.tadibrothers.com/ one of the best companies I have dealt with on the internet. I ended up buying a monitor that was to big, they exchanged it with no problems. I have one on top of back wall of truck camper and one on top of back of box trailer. I went with wireless with external antennas. I power them off the clearance markers. turn on tail lights and cameras come on. If ever needed, I could bring the monitor into the camper, (turn on the truck lights by press lock button on remote and lights come on for X seconds, or wire switch into camper cord to turn on tail lights) and I can view rear camera from inside camper.

RE: Variable speed water pump

what I hate is the pressure rise and fall causes temp changes in the shower. When low the shower runs cold, when pressure goes up the shower runs hot, cold and hot and cold and hot.

RE: The verdict is in! DRW vs SRW....real world

http://pic.towpro.us/albums/userpics/10002/normal_IMG_20170312_131226222.jpg see how the front end is lighter loaded? and I think that is with my front rack on, that included a Honda 2000, some fuel, maybe a little weber grill, all inside a giant plastic box

RE: The verdict is in! DRW vs SRW....real world

http://pic.towpro.us/albums/userpics/10002/normal_IMG_20161014_095931111~0.jpg This is from my AF 990, and my 2015 Ram dually, cummins, aisin, 4wd. (now I own a 2018 that is same only 2wd) This slip is with full tank of fuel and def, and wife and I in front seat, loaded for a 2 week trip. there is maybe a couple days food but we still had not stopped at our normal farm stand to pickup produce. and all adult beverages are in trailer. see the first 2 numbers add up to 13,980, and the truck GVWR is 14,000 lbs. Now maybe 300-400 lbs of that number is tong weight but still as shown I was 20 lbs within GVWR and without trailer tong I would be within 400 lbs. This was also 1/2 tank of fresh water, but black would have been empty as we were on start of trip. since than I got a device from hardware store that screws on end of hose and tells me how many gallons I am putting in holding tank. Most times I run with about 10 gallons in fresh tank.

RE: Reliability of new 2015 6.7 powerstroke or Cummins Diesel

I very much prefer the uber minor inconvenience of DEF... I agree. I skipped that whole generation between 2006 and 2015. I waited until Def was proven (but my 15 did get recalled for exhaust parts replacement. running from central FL to Central PA round trip I use around 2.5 gallons of DEF running 70 mph towing 14' box trailer. that is not even a penny per mile

RE: The verdict is in! DRW vs SRW....real world

I also added lower stable loads (the new stainless ones, that are still showing no signs of rust :)) on my Ram to bring it back up just a little over level. They also make it fell even more staple in the sway dept. I run 80 psi front and 70 psi rear loaded with the 990 loaded for a week trip. I do not run full of water if I am going to a place that has water. only need enough to flush the toilet on the road.

RE: The verdict is in! DRW vs SRW....real world

I agree with Ticki2. Your truck is going to sit high in the back unloaded, then hopefully level when fully loaded, this is the nature of how springs work I get a kick out people jacking the truck up to unloaded height when fully loaded. I measured my lights on garage door empty, than loaded camper and adjusted lights to match unloaded condition. used sharpy to mark direction up down on fender with number of turns. I carry torx bit screwdriver in console.

RE: The verdict is in! DRW vs SRW....real world

emcvay, congrats on your new truck, while I also agree with you on your findings, you never going to get someone who owns a SRW to agree with you.

RE: Chevy dually load range E tire pressure

at that weight, I would consider the truck "fully loaded" and I would follow the manufactures recommendations placard which is probably on the door jam.

RE: Installing Rieco-Titan Swing Away on AF990?

I went with the 10153 brackets because they looked stronger. They work for my 990 and my Ram dually

RE: Questions and Opinions on Rigs

I am one of the Dodge boys here. My 18 was custom ordered by me because I prefer 2wd. Plus I have always wanted a pickup with bucket seats :) Laramie, Aisin Transmission, 2wd, Dually, 3:73, single alternator with no factory air bags because as the truck leans the air transfers from one bag to the other.(although if your towing a 5er I hear its a great system) I did go with the switches but have not wired any of them up. I also added remote start, they come with this phone app for electric start but after 1st year they want more money than I feel its worth for the subscription to use it. I also went with Non NAV radio (the big radio comes rather with, or without nav) I did add the BigWig sway bar (1-5/16") on the back. But if you order now your going to get a 19, or maybe even 2020 pretty soon

RE: Truck camper mileage

taking speed out of the question. 2018 Cummins Diesel If I get X mph empty, I would get about 75% of X with truck camper loaded. towing my 7x14 don't make that much lower because the size if trailer is smaller then the truck camper when you look at wind load. and I would get around 50% of X towing my 10,000 lb 30' 5th wheel.

RE: Dually tire pressure?

I have the same truck. I run 40 psi empty in the rear. 400 lbs still means empty in my truck :) in fact running PA to FL towing a 7x14 V nose with stuff in bed and trailer (moving) I was running around 50 psi in rear. Not a lot of weight, just a lot of junk moving. with my 990 fully loaded installed on the truck I run 70psi because it felt better. But mine is 2wd wich takes off about 400 lbs mid ship.

RE: Batteries

6v batteries are designed for Golf Carts and are real deep cycle batteries. most of the 12V batteries are combination of starting batteries to Deep Cycle. I think it had to do with the size of plates, thick plates last longer for deep cycle, but don't produce the instant current needed for starting. thin plates make higher current but don't last as long in deep cycle operations. the only argument against 6v has been "if you have one battery die while your out, you will end up with no batteries because 1 6v don't help, but if you have 2 12V batteries you can pull one and still have 12v.

RE: USAA Insurance

and it says central Fl below your name, but your signature says JAX Fla. I know Orlando Fla is expensive but I live north of there in the country.

RE: Front tire pressure?

here is the formula. (A/B)x80=PSI A is true weight on Each tire B is max load on tire (marked on sidewall) C is max PSI (marked on sidewall) Hear is your rear calculation. (2900/3472) x 80 = 66.82 so I would run 70 / means divide by But what your saying your front weighs appears to be a little low to me, or maybe its just me from years of driving Cummins.

RE: Batteries

But even AGM runs double what lead acid cost. I am a fan of walmart batteries, if they go bad they replace them and walmart is everywhere. I have never had a problem with Walmart batteries. I currently have AGM because I had a bunch of Cabela Bucks on my credit card, enough to cover one battery, so P paid the price for 1 AGM and ended up with 2. But if my batteries went dead this weekend, I would probably go lead acid. I perfer 12V but 6V might give you more bang for the buck if you can fit them. I don't want to remove the tray because lead acid needs to have water added.

RE: Rubber roof confusion

dicore I have the EPDM on my Arctic Fox and the TPO on my Open range. The TPO reminds me of materiel that they make a beach ball out of. TPO is easier to clean, and less slippery when wet. But I think I like the EPDM better because the caulk used to fix it is more ready available.
