    East Coast Rally Rumor

    Karen and I wouldn't miss it, and we will be good this year, Karen says

    2018, Pre-rally, HDT Rally, who is attending?

    Todays update on my above average DRV quality, as the shop was reinstalling the underbelly the workers noticed that the fresh water tank mount failed and the water tank was about to fall out of the frame rails, so another set back on getting this rolling home 50 miles to the rally, but we got our fingers crossed that we can be on the road Sunday, come rain, snow, sleet or sunshine. If not we will be there some time early next week. And not in the Freightliner as it's still getting all the suprises installed, and I haven't even seen or heard about them all. Harrold might drive it over one day next week if it's ready. Roger

    Carl, Wait till your level up jack hoses burst the week before your refrigerator falls out of the slide because the slide floor was built wrong. And yes that’s what Karen and I are going through now. And I have had to replace both bedroom slide floors due to rot. Keep your head up as duck work will be a treat. Roger

    Tampa RV show onsite parking

    Stayed in this parking last year, no water trucks or honey wagons, but electric was stable, they do shut it off at noon on Sunday, so being the camper I am I fired up the gen and spent another night. When I got up and left I was the only one in the lots back there, and the fencing was gone as well. This year going for full hookups as we are a vender at the show. Roger

    Frame rails?

    I was told that truck frames stood up to 100,000 pounds PSI and mild steel is 30,000 pounds when they stretch the frame on my Freightliner we used frame rails from an old truck just because of this. I don’t know this to be a fact but my builder says it is so that’s what we used.

    Park snobs?

    The people that know me best will know this is the truth but I’ve had a few too many crowns one evening and somebody walked by and said God I wish I was born rich I would buy something like that and I said well I would just born with a silver spoon in my butt and one precious metals went up I pulled it out and sold it and this is what I wound up with. They walked off and never talk to me again their loss!

    Fuel economy vs HP

    I took my DD15 from 425hp to 560hp. Torque to 1850 Cost me 1600.00 dollars. Haven’t pulled yet but have a over flow tank to catch the fuel savings so I can put them back in the tank I know my mollies will go to about 28.6 miles to the gallon at least that maybe more!

    Park brake hanging up.

    If you find any worn parts are broken return springs on the shoes it would be time to do a complete brake job on that front axle just as preventative maintenance. Most people overlook the slack adjusters and the S cams but they play a vital part in stopping the truck.

    Park brake hanging up.

    First I would block wheels, have air tanks full. Then release parking brake, crawl under truck and see if slack adjuster is in full retract position, you can check other slacks to compare travel, if not retracted, see if s-cam is holding it from moving. Just a start of things to check but do this first. Roger

    Just throwing this out there, but how bout a summer long rally? That way people traveling to Alaska could stop and spend a few days and get together with who ever else is in the neighborhood, I know that the group we are in have no hard travel plans, and this might be the same with others, but we are open to stopping and enjoying the sites, and company of others along the way. What ya think? Roger

    Air leak, what is normal

    Overnight is not uncommon for an older truck to lose its air. What did your gauges read? i worked on my 99 Volvo and got it to hold more than 75 lbs after 3 days. My Freightliner will hold better than 100 lbs for weeks.

    TPMS, or not

    I have 17.5 tires on every trailer I own except the one that’s got a 12 inch tires on it. That being said I do it so all my trailer tires are the same size one spare fits all nine trailers one spare tire, but I wouldn’t put anything on my camper but 17.5 tires over Kill is your friend. Roger
