RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

Everyone doesn't have the same vacation/travel time schedule so some can drive at a leisure pace and others will need to push it for various reasons. Of course there is no "need" to plan a trip that you can't do at a reasonable pace.

RE: King Jack Directional Antenna Protection

Maybe you could put a sturdy plastic tub over it to spread the load.

RE: sway bar instructions

Meaning? I mean that you know what makes sense despite the nonsense being said about various sway mechanisms.

RE: sway bar instructions

This is confusing-at least in my mind..... I have an Equal-I-zer with 4 point sway control which uses friction at 4 points to address any sway issues. I do not understand how the effect of the systems are different. In other words, how can one system using friction be safe in slippery conditions, and another not? Since they both work to keep the trailer and the truck in line using the same principle, how can they be different? An email from Equal-I-zer tells me that it is not an issue, but they gave no explanation about how their system works in any conditions, while others are not safe and should be removed. Physics was always one of my best subjects, but I can't get my head around this one. Any engineers out there that can shed some light on this for me? You do have your mind right, you just need to have your BS detector adjusted.

RE: Stud Finders

Aluminum framed trailers may have as few as three studs over the entire length of the side. The wall may have steel sheet metal just under the paneling for attaching a TV and it can be found with a strong magnet. A stud finder for wooden studs will be pretty much useless. If you had a sticker showing the TV mount location then go by that, if you want an alternate location, good luck. Contact the manufacturer if in doubt. That's the problem Lynnmor, there is a sticker and I've talked with three different people that used the sticker for guidance on the exact same RV that I have and the sticker had been placed in the wrong spot. I'm not drilling pilot holes only to learn some flunkie put the sticker in the wrong place. Did you try the magnet? If you find a square of sheet metal, then fasten the mount with sheet metal screws. Folks drill and think there is nothing in there but the drill goes thru the sheet metal quickly. Then there are those that use wood screws that destroy the pilot hole. Use #8 or #10 screws that will enter the wall about 1/2" using a pilot hole the root diameter of the screw.

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

They simply want to move the pollution from power plants to other states. Those states should cut the wires to the idiots.When CA finally gets this worked out what will those other states do without the revenue? I live within 25 miles of these power plants generating for large eastern cities. 2 nuclear, 4 hydro, 2 coal fired, 1 oil fired, 2 waste burners and numerous small generators, the only financial difference for me is higher property taxes because of so much land being used by the utilities and their power lines.

RE: Gen-y torsion hitch and weight distribution adapter

Seems like an excellent way to waste a large sum of money.

RE: Trailer Brakes Shorting Out - Controller shows overload

Don't tip-toe around the useless warranty, fix your wiring. The axle issue mentioned is a good place to start, if that doesn't fix it pull the hubs and look for wiring faults in the magnet wires. Problems in the truck receptacle, trailer plug and any of the wiring back to the axle are other possibilities.

RE: sway bar instructions

Me thinks that the mentioned issue/condition is strictly for the add-on friction sway bars and has nothing to do with all those popular and expensive hitches with anti-sway built in. The condition is that sway mechanisms keep the truck and trailer in line. When the tire traction is not great enough to overcome the resistance of the sway mechanism, skidding when turning will result. It does not matter what brand, style or price point is involved.

RE: sway bar instructions

Then there are all those popular, expensive brands that can't be adjusted for slippery conditions. You are simply not to use them in slippery conditions. your TT should not sway with out one. They are only for emergency situations. Then all those folks with the popular, expensive brands need to get off the road at the first sign of inclement weather? Or do they need to remove all the weight distribution and then continue on?

RE: TPMS with Truck or Aftermarket

The temperature feature only reports the reading beyond the valve stem, that is not going to be a reliable way of determining brake and bearing issues. You may have to explain this to me. If I have a brake stuck and it heats the wheel which heats the tire and I see it on my TPMS, how is that not helping? By deduction, if my PSI is where it needs to be I can assume there is another problem than the tire. Are you suggesting a high temp reading on a TPMS isn't helpful? I sure would want to know if one wheel was significantly hotter than another. Sure beats not knowing. I do have the TST 507, the sending unit is whipping around in the wind keeping the temperature down. It would take extreme heat to bring the sensor to the point of alarm, but by then the air pressure would have climbed to the point of alarm anyway. I had Chinese wheel bearings that were failing to the point of turning all the red grease metallic gray and the TPMS showed normal temperatures. Helpful? Maybe a little.

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

ROFLMAO.......And then THIS Einstein moment. . In a state that has rolling blackouts that when they are not due to fire danger are due to a self admitted electrical generation capacity deficit, bankrupted their largest electrical utility with draconian edicts and government sponsored lawsuits, has a 54 billion $ budget deficit, and has the highest electricity costs in the nation by a longshot. They simply want to move the pollution from power plants to other states. Those states should cut the wires to the idiots.

My thought is something like that has no place in a moving vehicle.

RE: Near tragic event!!

The Dexter chart I COPIED from the Internet said to torque first to 60lbs then do it all again to get them at 90 to 120lbs. That's a 30 lb variance and looks like to me this makes it not overly critical. Just get them tight. I'm doing 90 from here on. However I believe the most important part of torquing wheel lug nuts to to do it again after a few miles and then check it regularly like you would tire pressure. Like one poster mentioned, the heating and cooling of brake drums may make this more critical. When I'm doing an engine overhaul I always go exactly as the manual says and that is a specific torque setting.......not a big variation. Rod bearings and cylinder head bolts have a specific recommendation. Apparently wheels do not. Read page 73 & 74. Dexter manual Steel, aluminum and aluminum with inserts all may be different, so go by the wheel manufacturers specifications.

RE: Near tragic event!!

Put a real torque wrench on the other wheels and see just how tight you made them. My guess is over tightening is the issue. When you had the new tires installed, was there another party involved?

RE: Crater of Diamonds State Park, arkansas

How does one spot a diamond amongst all that dirt and other stones? They have wash stations under roof where you can bring buckets of dirt.
