  1. In "Auto World" it stands for technical service bulletin. It's below the level of a recall, but something that should be addressed when the vehicle is serviced. Rob
  2. Start here to get a little better understanding: ChangingGears.com weights Rob
  3. Mark, Those "hitch" weights (referred to as pin weight with a fifth wheel) advertised by the manufacturers are empty weights - NOT loaded weights. Use the math provided by me and others in this thread (20 - 25% of the trailer's GVWR) and don't be fooled into a false sense of security. Rob
  4. In our family, we used to say, "Great minds run in the same gutter..." 😉 Rob
  5. A 3/4-ton truck may be your first issue. A 2,495 payload capacity is not much and isn't going to get you anywhere near your 19,500 combined weight rating (that's not your max towing capacity, I'm certain). Fifth wheels typically put about 23% of their loaded weight on the pin. If you have only 2,495 lbs. payload (and that's after fuel, occupants, the weight of the hitch, etc.), you are limited to a fifth wheel with a GVWR of about 10,800 lbs. You are not going to find a drop-frame fifth wheel with a lot of amenities in that weight range. Diesel 3/4-tons are notorious for having low payload ratings. Rob
  6. The EFS fuel card is offered through TSD Logistics: https://www.tsdlogistics.com/services/fuel-program/ . It offers discounts at all the major truck stops. The Pilot/Flying J card is in conjunction with Good Sam Club and is only good at PFJ travel centers. Rob
  7. Our truck burns diesel. We have a Pilot/Flying J fuel card (an actual credit card - not a discount card to use with a credit card) through Good Sam. We have an EFS fuel card for all the other truck stops. EFS actually has better discounts than the PFJ card. Rob
  8. Good to know - and thanks. This experience is in my future (hopefully not for another ten years or so). Rob
  9. These are available for Coleman and Dometic models. Pretty pricey and amount to nice looking baffles: AC Silencers Rob
  10. I've never had to pay a TFL deductible of any kind. As a secondary payer, TFL has picked up anything Medicare didn't. Rob
  11. Read ALL of the first post in this thread: http://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/125345-texas-class-a-or-b-license-upgrade-faqs/ It has been updated and tells you exactly which parts of the manual you need to study. Rob
  12. My wife and I both use Live Mail (essentially Microsoft Outlook mail accounts) and calendars. The mail and calendars will sync across both of our laptops, our android phones, and my Kindle Fire if I want to. I just used the search function to go as far back in the calendars as we've been using Live Mail (about ten years) in order to establish a timeline on health care providers - worked very well. All devices are synced via the databases on the servers. Rob
  13. VA/MTF pharmacies work for those of you that have a home base and/or stay in one or two places for longer periods. For us rolling stones, Express Scripts and Escapees mail is the option that works best. Rob
