    East Coast Rally Rumor

    Count us in too. We made it to the first one in Crossville, and hope to make them from now on...... And yes, we made some friends that first year, whom we continue to see around the country.

    Long units

    Doesn't AZ allow 3 x 45' trailers?

    Close to getting an HDT

    I believe that truck has been here before. Never met the folks, but their screen name was something like Margie and the Chef?

    Air Hitch leveling valve?

    Dang Henry, I had to read that three times before I realized you really meant what you wrote, but my eyes were reading "several thousand psi". Duh......

    Direct LInk - Emergency Stop

    Cruise on an HDT is like magic. It keeps the speed under control nicely, just like going up the hill. If anything, I feel it's safer to leave it on while descending. I've yet to need to touch the brakes going down a hill in the lower 48, but I've not traveled much in the east.

    Indiana sighting

    My bride spotted a white truck with a white or silver smart riding side saddle, pulling a large 5er on US 50 in Aurora, Indiana today. Anyone here?

    Hi everyone brand new here!!

    Just a thought...... If one where to find a short flat bed, say 8', and mount it sideways, it might offer some possibilities. These are usually on srw trucks, so likely only 7' wide. Retired state or county highway trucks come to mind.

    Took Parents for a ride this weekend in the 780

    You're nothing but a juvenile delinquent, as long as your father is alive........ Told to me, in front of Dad, by a 90+ y/o guy.

    Meandering away from topic, but you know it's usually easier to remove the bed than to drop the tank? S-I-L was going to cut an access hole in the bed, until I pointed out that the bed was held on by 6 bolts............

    Tampa RV show onsite parking

    We're thinking of doing the same this year.

    DPF Cleaning Results

    That's not the manly way. Just yesterday, I suggested to son-in-law that he look in the manual to see how to turn off annoying sounds and horn beeps. He looked at me like I'm crazy. Which I may be......

    A friend (John Doak), used to be the "D" in K-D Tools. One evening at a motorcycle rally, he related that the Chinese are thrilled when someone asks them to produce a quality product. And he should have known...... Unfortunately, most Americans seem to have fallen into the Wal-Mart mentality.

    Yes, I have some Indestro tools. The auto parts shop we used to use seemed to switch brands yearly. They'd always proclaim whatever was displayed as "The Best" and " Lifetime Warranty." But if you brought in a broken "best" from a couple years prior, you were S.O.L In 1972, I bought a 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" drive socket sets from S-K. Also that day, I bought sets of combination, open end, and box wrenches, assorted pliers, chisels, screw drivers, etc. The wrenches have been great. All else was mediocre, at best. I still have most of it, and used some this morning, working on the harvester.

    Leveling help?

    We're old school. Level side x side with wood scraps before unhooking. Not a big deal if you forget to pick them up.

    Damnphool ideas

    There's some good riding on Cape Breton. Along the coast, you can whale watch without getting off the bike. And the seafood up there is amazing.
