RE: Used 6-point levelers to change a flat

Thanks for the video and pics! Looks like you had a great time! Nice pic of the dogs too! While reluctant to leave, they looked to be enjoying the comfortable seat, and snooze to follow. My little best friend was always first in the truck, when heading to camp, and heading home! I've never been off-roading in the desert. I had a chance to about 10 years ago, with a couple wild guys that enjoyed chasing illegals in the southwest, but declined, not sure why?? My favorite type riding is in 6-8K altitude mountains, often single track, with tight trees, and low level creek crossing. Here is a pic, summer pre-covid, as I've not done much off-road the last couple years. https://i.imgur.com/0ZW5AaWl.jpg Just rehydrating while level enough for buddy and I to park bikes. Heading up behind me from there.

RE: Used 6-point levelers to change a flat

The lack of tire info response from Dave, indicates to me, that he does not want to turn his using levelers to change a tire thread, into a thread about tire opinions. I should not have asked my above tire questions, taking away from intended thread subject. I still would like to see a cool offroad pic though! :) Jerry

RE: Used 6-point levelers to change a flat

Yes, you can clearly read GY on the front tire. Looking at the tread design, it appears to me, to be an Endurance. I would be curious if this is correct, and what tire dating, and also what tires were inflated to for your trip. Unlikely to know cause of death, with that mess? Great that your new motor worked well, providing enough hydraulic pressure to lift that heavy toy hauler. While your PSA, with picture, will help others with tire issues, I was hoping you'd post a camp pic, or scenic pic, taken out riding. I am a shut-in, that woke up this morning to -20F. At least 3 months wait before turning FW tires. Jerry

RE: New here! 1986 Holiday Rambler Alternator

^^Above is a good point, especially if adding another house battery. All converter/chargers are not equal, and an 86 model may not have a quality converter, with smart charger. An upgrade to a newer model may be a wise decision, and not a huge expense. You could post the brand/model you have now, to get more thoughts. Jerry

RE: New here! 1986 Holiday Rambler Alternator

Welcome to the forum! If your new batteries are in fact discharged, you need to recharge them right away, as it will ruin them to sit totally discharged. If you trust your mechanics recommendation, then someone should remove the alternator, take it to a quality auto parts store, to purchase replacement. They can look up replacement needed, and can see if theirs matches the one you have. Often times, you can trade your old one, getting a little savings on the new one. Good luck, hope you enjoy your recent purchase. Holiday Ramblers were a good model, and the 454 a solid engine. Jerry

RE: wintering in south BC

You don't give actual temp, as to being too cold. Most RVs will be useable down to the low 20sF. If your tanks are enclosed, you should be able to handle sub freezing temps. Not using your furnace, due to noise, may be your issue. Many RVs have a smaller heat duct that goes direct to the tank area. You may be able to add some types of insulation, such as Reflectix, or an extruded hard foam to needed areas. My FW is rated 4-season capable, and is well designed for temps into the teens F. It does require use of the furnace to protect all plumbing, and is well insulated, even the large slide. Jerry

RE: Old truck, new look…

^Smart boy...knew to call Dad, rather than just jump in, maybe causing damage to one of the vehicles. Snapchat pics will prove to friends, that Son knows how to git er done! Worth more than the $20 fee! So many reasons for every person 5 yrs and up, to have a smart phone.

RE: Bought a second truck.

I love to see that ! ! ! Me too. And I love doing it too. Yup, just the fun of being a motorhead! Very common; then they deemed a short burn, from a stop light, just halfway across an intersection, EXIHIBITION DRIVING! Go figure? Jerry

RE: Relationship between jacks and slides?

You may get better response by posting in the tech section? Ugh. Those guys are mean. Even the simplest question turns into a wiener measuring contest with that group. Not interested. Lol..lots of chest thumpers over there for sure!:B My good buddy Howard, above, is a great source of reliable info, that I would trust!

RE: Relationship between jacks and slides?

I know and understand my rack and pinion electric slide system, but not the sharpest tack, on the several other types. :) Is it possible that your system is hydraulic jacks, but slides are simply operated by the electric motor? You did say the fluid level does not change, while moving the slides. You may get better response by posting in the tech section? Jerry

RE: Dometic ceiling fan inoperable

I don't have a clue, but my fan hasn't been that clean in years! Well, your not much help...but I'll help you! You need to change your maid service! Agree with ron above. Jerry

RE: Re-sealing the nose of a fifth wheel

To check the front cap roof top, someone has to get on the roof, and inspect very closely. Most newer roofs are rounded, so even if the leak is near the driver side, it could originate from center of roof. Another possible source, for a leak, in that area, would be the clearance lights. If water sets in the cutout for them, during hard rain, it could reach the hole the wires come through, behind the lights. If you are not comfortable getting on the roof, I'd suggest having someone else check for you. Jerry

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

^^^ It’s not posted as fact anywhere as far as I know….. it’s just me thinking it’s pretty tough to compete in a 500 HP/10 speed market with 420 ponies and 6 gears. "the 2023 Ram is apt to take a big hit in depreciation when the ‘24 comes out with 8 gears and 480 horsepower / 1200 lbft of torque." You will lose credibility by making these type statements. If you would have said guessing, or if, in that remark, you wouldn't be providing false info. Yes, you did clear that up, after being confronted. Jerry OUCH!!! That even hurt me Jerry!!! :B He is actually the one that said the 6 x 6 is just fine and would not make much difference with more gears. As mentioned WHY in the HE!! change when you have combo's that do the job reliably. I will repeat, I tow way more weight than most anyone here at 35k combined West Coast and have ZERO reason to want more gears or power. I have owned both trans and I love them both. Harsh...not intended. Just a tip for a respected member, that many trust to be stating facts, when in this case it wasn't. Good that you asked him! My opinion...I agree, with the Ram not NEEDING more than a stout 6-speed. I do think similar to others opinions, that since technology continues to advance for Ford/GM, at some point Ram will follow. Right/wrong, it will be considered upgrading the drivetrain and body/frame/styling.:) Jerry

RE: Old truck, new look…

https://i.imgur.com/85yp3ufl.jpg IMO, those wheels add a masculine look, rather than pimp. Nice!! Thanks for posting the pic! Yup, reds do match! Also lots of room for a good pic, in the no park red zone. A trick likely learned from his Dad. :) Jerry

RE: DISCUSSION: 8 ft + crew cab vs. SUV

Make this new crew cab a HD 35 series truck, and add a fifth wheel trailer. You'll wonder why you've been towing a TT the last 20 years. Nothin wrong with crabby, just a product of getting older! Jerry

RE: 2023 camping season

I wish MORE RV folks would 'cut back'.. ha, ha... That would make it easier to get reservations at the parks I want to go to.. I can't just pick up and go on a whim.. I do not wish to just "camp" in a parking lot type of park. I was paying $6/gallon gas last season, so I guess since eggs are now $3/dozen, I might just have to make smaller omelets on the Blackstone! :) Mitch https://i.imgur.com/XG8H0uzm.jpg?1 Hey Mitch...where ya gettin those $3 doz eggs? Walmart here is $5.80 doz! Is it possible to make a 1 egg omelet??:) I don't get concerned over gas prices, in fact, when towing, most always use pure premium. Jerry

RE: Old truck, new look…

That is a great looking truck! Having a bad a$$ ride, or sweet ride, will build character/confidence in good boys. Have you got a pic of the Pony, with the new pimp wheels on it? Jerry

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

Several statements above are correct. Some people should not have a dog. Dogs are much smarter than most people could imagine. A person that has never had a dog, will never understand why others fully appreciate the experience. Just owning a dog, that lives it's life outside, in a 6x8 pen, just giving it food/water, is not a good experience for dog, or owner. Like most things experienced in life, you get out of it, what you put into it. Yes, a dog is capable of being your best friend! Jerry

RE: 2024 GMC and 2023 Super Duty

My daughter ordered a new Bronco coming up two years ago and we still haven't got a production date. Maybe if you order a new Super Duty today you'll have your 350k miles on the '12 by the time the new one shows up.:) There's no vehicle on the road worth waiting 2 years for. I'd have picked something else way before now. Absolutely...well past time to move on! Dealer should happily return any deposit! Even waiting for 1 year, is hard to justify, but going on 2, no matter the excuse, find another dealer/vehicle.
