RE: Wheelbase question

Your not long until your nearing the 60 ft mark. I'm just over 50 ft with the 5th wheel but 60 ft with my bumper pull car trailer. Short guy, 75 ft with a 53 and 78 with a 57ft: My sleeper is shorter LOL

RE: 12 V cooler

I don't know what mine draws, bad memory. I have forgotten it and not unplugged at night and the truck has started fine in the morning. I do have two batteries. I've been to events and had it hooked up all day and then forgotten to unplug at night, next morning it wouldn't start

RE: Need help on front hitch on TV

This is a grille guard/hitch I built. It takes the place of the factory tow hooks. As you can see it's well braced and has been put to the test. I have a 12,000 lb rated winch that plugs into the hitch that has been put to use and strained

RE: New Heavy Chevy!

I had this 85 GMC duallie for 5 yrs. Sold it 6 yrs ago. I had a 454 bored and stroked to 489", cowl induction hood, headers, 4spd w/Gear Vendor OD, and 4.56 gears. Was an Az. truck with an all original paint job. It even came with a sheet listing all the paint codes In the mid 70's I also had a 75 Chevy 4wd, and a 76 Chevy crew cab. I kept the crew cab for 11 tears

RE: Mt Rainier - east side

We pulled this both ways on 123 between U.S. 12 and 410 last year as we stayed at The Dalles Campgound for a few nights. Didn't have any problems other than some rough stretches of pavement.

RE: Route from Kalispell to Gardiner

I would go U.S.93 to left Mt 82, right Mt 35, left Mt 83 also known as The Swan which is a beautiful drive, left Mt 200, right MT. 141, right U.S. 12 left I-90, right U.S 89 into Gardiner. The only part between Kalispell and I-90 I haven't pulled many times either with a 30 ft 5er or 38 ft car bp trailer is U.S. 141 and U.S. 12

RE: Gas to Diesel

Not a problem except you will want to cut the nozzle restriction out of the fill tube in order to accommodate some of the larger diesel nozzles

RE: Towing vehicle Ford vs GMC Dually Super Duty (used)

I would not want a Dodge either seeings as they disappeared in 2011. Dodge=Ram. Just because they put another name on it doesn't change who makes it

RE: Front mounted Generator

I wonder about air flow to the radiator

RE: In bed diesel tanks

I considered a replacement tank before I bought my aux tank. The replacement would be nice to not take room up in the bed, but I just couldn't justify the cost ($1300 +) to add less than 20 gallons. I spent less than that on my RDS and added 60 gallons. I did the inbed tank for the same reason you did, less cost per added gal. I've never regretted doing so

RE: In bed diesel tanks

I don't understand the thinking that filling an extra tank and not using the fuel right away is wasting money. It will be used sometime. Or do you just like stopping into your favorite station? Maybe a cute little clerk? As someone said if money is that tight you probably shouldn't be traveling

RE: Black Hills suggestions

Take the bus tours: Rushmore and Crazy horse is one and the Black Hills in another. What movie was filmed in the Black Hills? I think your remembering Dances With Wolfs. A film site is off the Spearfish Canyon Drive. Wife and I took our picture with the sign marking it way back in 95

RE: In bed diesel tanks

I have a TransferFlo 50 gal in bed. I've had this tank for 17 years and it's more than paid for itself. When I changed it from the 02 to the 07 I had to buy a new brain to get the auto transfer to work. I have a brother who was delivering RVs for awhile. With his truck I used an electric pump with a switch in the cab and a small flashing multi colored LED light that was on when the pump was on. He couldn't forget to turn the pump off. Plus I wired it so that it was switched power. I also installed a fuel gauge in the cab for him

RE: Chipmunks

The water bucket, ramp and sunflower seeds method works fantastic. A few years ago our yard was over run with chipmunks, we live in the woods. In 2 months time it took care of 70 of them

RE: Cascade, ID to Yellow Pine, ID

I looked at that route. I'm curious did the locals recommend doing a circle tour of the area? McCall to Cascade to Yellow Pine then NF-412/E.Fork rd back to McCall?

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

It's 2 Model T roadster bodies. They won't qualify as essential nor would the travel to get them. As far as shipping I have other things bought in Mt. & N.D. and will do just one trip. My trailer for hauling these things has 29" of bed space

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

RE: Frost free hydrant for potable water

Lynnmor, sounds as though someone put a short one in. They make them as long as 9 ft. If you end up later digging it out I'd certainly think about a taller one
