    HDT/hitch for tow behind travel trailer

    If Air Safe still sells the 4-bag model shaped like an "H" I had bad experience w/that. I think they changed hands since then.

    Our HDT T-boned leaving Moab, UT

    FIRST QUESTION- "are you accepting liability?". If so, get time/date and in writing if possible. They might send someone out, but still refuse to pay. Ask your Co to send someone out if they waffle **at all**, could be months before they step up to the plate. Yours is obligated to act, you can always withdraw your claim if the other Co accepts the loss. .

    Parts for volvo mirror

    Plenty of mirrors at my yard, but only a few older style like mine. NONE with the 2 separate mirrors on the same arm. Didn't talk to the head guy, but if those are the ones you want I have a picture of them.

    Parts for volvo mirror

    I am going to my yard TODAY. They bought a whole fleet of VN's a while back, and are parting most of them out. I can ask prices and if they will sell shipped. Mine is a 2000, don't know how many different "gen"s there are. But I can take a few pics for those interested. Where are you guys that need one?

    Need tires thoughts?

    Well, tires age out as you see. I go to a truck salvage yard that I deal with, and buy a whole axle of tires (4) . I try to find fresh kill with polished wheels, and trade all 4 mounted for the ones off the donor. Save a bunch of $ on the mount/bal. Last ones I got were Kumho, holding up real well. $800 exchange & they swapped them for me at the yard.

    Steering gearbox replacement cost on a Volvo?

    Why not a used box? Anybody with some big metric tools can replace one, just need FEA afterwards. Where are you?

    lost all trailer power - SOLVED

    95% of all electrical problems are bad ground. Since that is the one thing in common to all your lights taking a dump, I'd start there at the plug. (Usually the center pin)
  12. I make MANY sunscreens for boat salon front windows. Use Phifertex Plus by Textilene, find it online or www.sailrite.com will probably have it. 90% sun reduction, should run you around $ 14/yd + shpg 54" wide in several colors. If you are quoted a LOT more for it, I can get it shipped to you but the freight would be from Longuysland. (That's in NY) I made one for Mark & Dale bruss a few yrs ago, he installed.

    New gear ratio

    I went from 3.73's to 3.23's. Just a little too far I guess, but I can hit anywhere between 55 & 65 in 9th (Autoshift .74 OD/22.5). It can supposedly do 97 now, but the great thing is passing a semi at 65 & hitting 10th as you pass...................

    New 5th wheel, what would you do?

    In auto insurance, we dealt a lot with "diminished value". That is the lesser percieved value someone's car has JUST BECAUSE it has an accident on the record, not because of poor repairs. For a start, I'l tell the dealer you want a 10% discount of the *retail* repair cost toward the purchase price & see what happens. Or, call the mfr & ask when the next one is being built, or one in stock somewhere else.

    Price of Diesel fuel

    Watch the Costco card. I was told if you fuel more than 75 gallons at the GASOLINE PRICE ANYWHERE, you lose the 4% discount. Diesel is more than reg gas now, so do the math before fueling. However, if you shut the pump off and re-enter the card, it becomes 2 separate transactions. And do not make the mistake of getting EXACTLY the same amount twice, the card kicks it out as a duplicate transaction.
