    Hope all turns out well Glenn
  2. I will post photos after I load utv.
  3. That is a great looking trailer
  4. It getting close to rainy season here in western Washington. I have some projects going on in the shop so need the space. Parking is prime real at my house so I decided to dual utilize some space with the truck. Here is where my utv will reside for the winter months when not in use. Click For Full-Size Image.

  5. Pulled into Spokane last night at North Spokane RV Park and were neighbors with Dave Scott, his lovely bride and his big red Volvo. It was nice for the old blue KW to have some company.

    Polishing Tanks?

    Thanks Scrap. Makes sense

    Polishing Tanks?

    My tanks are getting a little oxidized and last trip I lost an ac line to sleeper and ran Freon all over passenger side tank. I tried to wash off but no luck. Ended up sanding tank which worked very good. So good that I will sand the other one as well and clean up all the oxidation. I need to go back and polish now. My question is which size polishing wheel works the best. I can get 8” or 10”. I think 8” will work a little better to get right up and under sleeper for tops of tanks. I think 10” will work better over all for tank and wheel finish. Really I don’t know what I think so your thoughts would be appreciated
  8. I have used Lucas fuel additive in the HDT for quite a few years. Last year while fueling a really nice old Pete pulled up next to me and of course we started while our tanks filled and our wallets emptied. We both had Cat motors. He saw me putting in the additive and mentioned Howe’s fuel treatment. He swore it made his old Cat run better. Since I was out of the other I grabbed some Howe’s for the next trip. Truck does seem to run quieter. If your truck is old like mine they were before low sulfur diesel and can use some sort of lubrication no matter what it is. I have used amsoil diesel plus cetain in the lgt for years. I guess that was a long winded way of saying I use stuff and they all seem to provide some benefit
  9. I have no affiliation with this truck. Just came across it this weekend. I know the Maxforce engine had its issues but for this price and these miles it might be worth a look for someone. https://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/hvo/d/salem-2014-international-prosrar-semi/6948401231.html
  10. Chad I would love to live vicariously through y’all as well if you would include me with the link. Hoping to make next year. Glad you made it home safe.
  11. Wish we were there. Y’all have a great time.
  12. Not sure what model truck you have but there is usually fuses behind the glove box. At least on the 2 models I have owned that was the case.

    Bumper Pull Hitch

    I have done 2 different trucks of mine using this type that we built. It is simple, strong and looks nice. My bumper ties in with the hitch. This just bolts to frame Click For Full-Size Image. Click For Full-Size Image.
  14. Chad you have done a great job putting this together. Looks like it will be a lot of fun.
  15. I had a 1989 Teton Madison that I lived in while I went to college. It had 2 power supply cords. They ran into separate panels. It was a different setup for sure but worked fine. We had 2 pedestals where we parked and plugged each cord into a separate pedestal. My washer and dryer were the only things I ran off the second circuit. I had 7500 genset in it as well. That was a good old trailer. Paid for the down payment on my first house.
