    Air Bag Hitch vs. Solid Hitch

    I have been using a HDT for 7 years ,here is my opinion based on what I just replaced this spring . The morryde pin box "spring" gave up, the bolt holes elongated and allowed the pin to move a couple of fractions of a inch, the back of the trailer swayed a foot.I replaced the spring but if it doesn't last It will be replaced by a solid pin box. Also I remember Henry's statement "the air bag in a pin box is too small " the pin box dimensions restrict the air bag size and then require too much pressure to carry the weight,"they may as well be solid". A air ride hitch on the other hand has 2 or 3 bags and they are bigger - much more 'squish'- better and best.

    Smart car radiator fan

    I think on very hot days and high load(stop and go) they shed the load to protect the engine, ours has always done that. Driving at a steady speed away from the city full blast cooling returns

    When you are constantly looking down at your phone and only glancing up, your depth perception is no longer reliable.

    Volvo fleet speed setting

    There is a 'list' somewhere of all the parameters considered to be useful when addressed while the ECM is 'open'. do it all the same time was the idea. years ago at a early ECR Gregg Shields had a paper copy, mine is long gone ,it may have survived and be online ,perhaps the guide here?

    Why worry about ontario? I am front there and have no limits ,if you are a RV /motorhome no limiter needed. The speed limit is still 100, but you know.........

    FB, HDT did I miss something

    Someone once estimated that were 5 or as many as 10 'unknowns' for every FB and forum member. There is a red peterbilt near me with a toy hauler ,for at least 10 years now I have not been able to corral the guy, bet he has no idea either or just a loaner.
