    Finally Did it! Dropped Fiver!

    How did you like Military Ridge campground ? We are always looking for somewhere new to stay, and Gettysburg is only a short drive from Harrisburg.

    Finally Did it! Dropped Fiver!

    Yep, dropped ours this weekend. Apparently 3 sets of eyes are one too many....dog was helping us hitch up. Well that was enough to make me feel 2 inches tall, had an audience, was at the dealership picking up the trailer from having warranty work done. Luckily our spare tire is in the front, landed on that, have to lower it and check the rim yet this weekend.

    Hitch - Rock and Roll side to side

    It is a Hitchcrafter air ride hitch, it uses the binkley head. And yes the line of the cab is very visible and gives a big reference to movement. Just have to get used to ignoring it. Even after the trip to Alabama from PA it still shocks me.

    Hitch - Rock and Roll side to side

    I mean during towing I noticed that the rear does not bounce like it did when hooked to the one ton. Just takes some getting used to seeing in rolling back there in the mirror. Of course with the mirrors being bigger and sitting higher than the one ton, see the whole trailer, not just part of it. Thank you for all the replies and reassurance that what I am seeing is normal.

    Hitch - Rock and Roll side to side

    Guys, We upgraded to the HDT in May, and are pulling our 43 ft fifth wheel with it. I noticed when towing that the trailer seems to rock side to side more than it used to. The hitch is by Hitchcrafter, and is a 32K hitch. I wonder if the air bags are too big or stiff for our trailer. Our pin weight is on the lower side, maybe 3K. The trailer has a max weight of 15.5K. Ideas ? Suggestions ? Yes I know Henry makes a great hitch, but that is not in the budget right now.

    East Coast Rally Sock Monkeys Make It To Mexico

    That is just great, awesome job.
  7. I know my Volvo tanks are listed as 125 gallons, but they actually only hold 117 gallons as their true capacity.

    Ishift not starting out smoothly

    My 730 with D13, always wants to start in 4th gear. With the trailer, it will drop below that occasionally, but for the most part even connected it starts in 4th. Our trailer is about 15k, and we have only had the truck since after the HDT rally, so we are also still learning.

    Volvo losing coolant out overflow, not overheating

    in 2000 miles of travel, just about 2 gallons. Most of it seemed to be splashed up on the inside of the hood, on the lower side of the heat pads when the hood is open. More was on the drivers side than passenger but was some on passenger side. Temps outside going down 85 to 90, lost just over a gallon of fluid then. Temps coming home, around 70 and raining, short of a gallon used to top off. Both times, had display up, max temp showing in display, about 205, most of the time around 190.

    Ours is a D13, 2012. Chief will look for that, not sure what ours has on it, we have only owned it for about 2 months now. I am still learning....

    That was in our plans, hopefully it helps. Then considering having the thermostat changed.
  12. We took a trip to Alabama and one the way down the Volvo was blowing water out the overflow but was not overheating. Checked oil cap, no white flakes, checked oil, no coolant in it. Ideas ??

    Yes it was. We went to Gulf State Park in Alabama. Stopped in Fort Chiswell and Gadsden Alabama on the way down, and Seiverville, TN on the way back. I am beat and back to work in the morning. Also had to put our dog down the day before the trip, so been a tough week.
