  1. Ndbirdman must live in the Peoples Republic of California. I am on Ohio, everything was easy. Duallies get abused by large trailers and will not have the longevity of a used HDT. I towed my horsetrailer w/living quarters for 5 years with a dually before making the jump to HDT. I would never go back.
  2. I'm thinking my rear leveling valve is not working correctly. My truck is not singled. When I take the trailer off the truck it takes about 60-90 seconds for the bags to release to the required level. How quickly do ur tractors adjust?
  3. That product says for metal to metal contacts. This is metal to rubber.
  4. I have kodiak disc brakes on my trailer. The mount consist o a rubber sleeve that fits inside the caliper, the a stainless tube, inside the tube is where the mounting bolt goes. Grease goes between the rubber bushing and the stainless tube. I have used anti-sieve which is not the right application, now I use the disc caliper grease, but in one year it is no longer any use. Any suggestions out there?

    Purchasing Fuel

    Good tip to vary purchase price.

    Purchasing Fuel

    How do you purchase fuel? I have been using my credit cards, but they limit the purchase per credit card swipe. $100 - $125 is less than a 1/4 tank. Also I frequently get shut down on the 3rd swipe of my card even with notifying the card company of my specific cards. Do any of you use the commercial fuel cards like "fuelman"?
  8. What is a source for one of these code readers?
  9. You can get retreads for $250 a tire. My truck came with retreads on drives and I have had no problems with them. One of my friends who drives a truck gets about 100k out of his drives. For me tires age out rather than wear. My tire guy says retreads should last 8 to 10 years. He recommended Acutread since they remold both tread and sidewall
  10. Power on and cruising, feels like both in seat and wheel. If it is driveline why would it get worse with new tires?
  11. Have had a slight vibration in the past even after front wheel balance. Got new tires, 3 axle alignment, wheels were spin balanced. Now the vibration is worse. I did get a wider tire as I'm not a fan of Michelin. Any other ideas of what could be the issue or what else to check?

    Volvo 630 fairing

    One of the handles to remove the fairing below the driver doors stopped working. Had to take apart the oin holder on the truck to remove the fairing to charge batteries. Turn out the screw rusted in half. Any good ideas how to get out the rest of the screw so that i can replace?
