    Discount Ramps

    Hi Everyone, I was curious to know if Discount Ramps ever have a sale on their ramps ? It's about time I get a set of ramps for my truck. I was hoping I could find a sale on them before I decide to pull the trigger and buy some ramps. I know that Discount Ramps make a nice product. I am thinking about the ones that are 19" wide. Just looking to save some money. Thanks for any help or ideas, Al
  3. Hi Everyone,I am looking for suggestions where to mount some remote displays. I have a hard wired surge protection in the trailer. I have a remote display for the surge protection I would like to install in the trailer and I also have a remote display for the inverter that needs to be mounted. I am not sure where to mount these remote displays. Looking for ideas where to mount the displays. Both displays do not needed to be mounted in the same place. Does anyone have pictures of their remote displays ? I also understand I might need to remove some of the ceiling in the storage area to help run any wires. The more that I look at the ceiling the harder it's looking to run wires. The frame work for the bedroom floor and the steel frame work for the trailer is going to cause a big problem. I do not want to drill any holes thru this frame work. The inverter in the trailer is all most impossible to see if the inverter is on or not. That is one main reason for the remote display for it. The trailer is a 2019 Redwood.Looking for lots of ideas or locations,Al

    Hi Randy, I would be careful with using bleach. You need to know the pH of bleach. Cleaning your truck I would think you want a product with a neutral pH. Al

    I hope Mr. Cobb will see this. He has Chandler Equipment boxes on his truck. When I buy boxes for my truck, I will go the the Chandler brand. Good luck on your build, Al
  6. He Tom, That sounds good. Just let me know when your in Ohio. Al

    Applying Decals

    Hi Everyone, I want to say ' Thank You ' for the ideas. I have been on the road, so I haven't started putting the vinyl decal on yet. Al
  12. Hi Everyone, I want to make sure my headlights are in adjustment. I have a gen 2 truck. The adjustment screw that is coming out looks like it is a torx style. Does anyone know what that torx size could be ? Or better yet, what size socket to use ? It looks like a a 5mm socket could work but there is some slop between the socket and the adjustment screw. A 5mm socket works good with a T-30 torx. There is no slop. Any ideas on the size of the adjustment screw ? They don't make a 4.5mm socket or do they ? Any ideas on the size ? Al
  13. Hi Alan, does your 2012 run DEF and if so any issues to date?  What year did Volvo start using Def if you know this?

    Applying Decals

    I should have said vinyl. There is already adhesive on one side and the other side you have a sheet of a waxed paper material needs to be removed last. I have found a video or too showing how to do this job. From what I have seen, it will be best to have a helper.

    Applying Decals

    Hi Everyone, I want to add some decals to my truck. The size of the area that the decal would cover is 30"x 36". I will be doing this job by myself. I have seen on line that there are 2 different methods. The dry method and the wet method. Which would be the best ? I can not put the truck inside to do this job. I know it will be best to have shade on the side of the truck when doing this job. I can put one decal on one day and the next day put the second decal on. Wet or dry method ? Thanks for any help, Al
