    Hitch Camera

    Brad, Got the Dallux. Connected right in and works much better than original. Very sharp picture. Thanks.

    Engine Brake Volvo D12

    Well simple sometimes best. Turns out was loose connection on switch. Must have hit it when I was behind panel few weeks ago. All is well. Wonder if shop would have just thrown $1k of parts at it saying it was the shutter? Thanks for the help.

    Engine Brake Volvo D12

    Glen, Normally on 6-7% grade mine will easily stay within 5 mph of cruise setting coming down. Noticed today coming down 7% grade in Carolinas I was getting up to 10mph over set speed and accelerating. Had to take off cruise and tap in service brakes to stay where I wanted. Could have down shifted but wasn’t that long a grade. Can’t explain it, just felt “different “ than normal.

    Engine Brake Volvo D12

    Is there a way to check if the engine brake system is working properly on a Volvo D12 without driving a grade? The D12 has an exhaust brake which is the first setting on the switch and the second is for compression brake. It is not a three stage “Jake” like some of you guys have.

    Interesting Conversation About DEF

    Lou, For some reason don’t think I was gonna win that conversation. Sometimes better to let a sleeping dog lie, especially if it might be a Georgia Bulldog.

    David, I ordered the cheap Chinese one $17 just to check before I pee in the tank. 😂. Yours is Snap On right? Actually just wanted to check various brands. Think the guy in Tractor Supply had a Georgia Bulldog shirt on🤪

    Tunnel Heights

    Thanks John. My Rand McNally can be programmed for low clearances, but bet your app is more inclusive.

    Tunnel Heights

    Thanks guys. Was considering looking at some roads in “our neck of the woods” as Paul says and when using Truck & Travel App it just says height 14’3” which is fine if it did not mean I had to be over the center line.

    Tunnel Heights

    Are the height signs for arched tunnels to the lowest point on the wall or to the center of the arch?

    Yeah was posting more for the conversation about exploding DEF. Never know what people are thinking.

    Good point. Usually good up to a year if stored between 10-90* F is my understanding. Think I’m going to invest in one of these. Cheaper brands on eBay. https://www.otctools.com/products/otc-def-refractometer

    Interesting Conversation About DEF

    Being productive today. Was in Tractor Supply getting stuff to change oil and filters on my tractor. Noticed they had their brand of DEF on sale for $4.00 cheaper than Peak Blue DEF. Stranger walks up and interjects. (Narrative will sound bit like DollyTrolly, so don’t get mad Dolly😊) Stranger: “What kind of truck you have?” Me: “Dodge Ram 2500.” Stranger: “Then don’t buy that stuff!” Me: “Really? Why?” Stranger: “Will cancel your warranty and could blow up your truck!” Me: “Really?” Stranger: “Yeah, those off brands use the same stuff they use in fertilizer to make bombs like Oklahoma City.” Me: “I thought that was ammonium nitrate?” Stranger: “Nope”. Me: “Well better look at ingredients. Says automotive purified urea 32.5%, distilled water 67.5%” Stranger: “Yep, that’s the stuff”. Me (with a chuckle): “Is Peak Blue okay?” Stranger: “Yep, don’t use that explosive stuff”. Me: “Well better check. Says right here urea 32.5%, distilled water 67.5.%.” Stranger: “ Blue stuff is not explosive”. Me: “Okay, thanks for the advice, would hate to level my house!” I bought the sale brand. Moral: Had moment of WalMart deja vu. DEF is DEF is DEF. Pretty sure what is in the pumps at truck stops is not all Peak Blue DEF.

    Trailer TPMS not reaching cab

    Brad, My TST is actually a mix of the 507 and 510 with the trailer on the older 510 and the truck on the 507 (or vice versa). One has replaceable batteries and one you have to send back to replace. Reason I mixed was I already had some 510 sensors that were only one year old and RandyA gave me several that were fairly new. The replaceable batteries usually last only a year or two while I had some of the non-replaceable that lasted almost six years. Until I found cheaper batteries in bulk on eBay my costs between replaceable and non were almost identical (I was buying from BatteriesPlus before). Now replaceable is cheaper but better buy a tiny Phillips head screwdriver.😊

    Trailer TPMS not reaching cab

    Brad, Got to reading more. The repeater you link is for a EEZ TPM system. I would bet that each of the systems (TST, Bellacorp, PressurePro, etc) sensors transmit on a a discrete frequency otherwise any sensor should work with any system as long as you could program the monitor. So your repeater probably only works with the EEZ.
