  1. Bobtail mileage

    ARGO, Can you ship that for $800 To $900(fuel)? Curt
  2. New guy

    Besides why use distribution bars with an HDT? I have only had TT's and have "never" needed them, but my truck out weights my TT by 5k. Curt
  3. Any Freightliners need assistanceds????

    Glenn, Check the lines running under the cab to the unit under the lower berth passenger side. Curt
  4. Any????? We are an easy fix, most times! 😁
  5. Ultra Shift issues?

    Pete; Pretty hard to go wrong with the Series 60! 12.7 or 14L parts are everywhere and they are very tuneable to your needs! But I guess I'm biased! Curt
  6. Freightliner FL70

    I'm out west, if you want to play in the hills you will need 470hp and above! I know others will say different, but I do live and play out west!
  7. The time has come....(Help needed!)

    All; After a little deeper thought and haggling with the wife! We have decided to keep our HDT a little while longer. So a "big" Thank You to those that volunteered to help! Coming to terms of loosing our truck shook me to the core. Our truck is special to us and is special all around. It came with almost every option available during it's time. It has fairly low mileage (under a million) in pretty decent shape and outftted for "our" needs. It would be hard (if not impossible) to replace it, especially since it is a "pre" emissions truck. Only using a "Glider" base could you come close for a new/newer build. To that end, we will keep it until we cannot justify having it. To the initial titled topic...... "Is there anyway" ??? photo posting could be made easier on this site? (I will start a new topic on this issue...) "Truly" Thanks again for all that offered help with the photo issue and hope to see you on the road! Rest assured you will hear fom me here. ? Curt & Debi
  8. To all, The time has come for us to make a change with our RV situation. That being said, we have posted our setup in the "for sale" section. I must ask for help posting pictures! I have struggled with this the whole time I have been on here, so hopefully this will be our last request on this picture matter. We hope our rig will go to a good deserving home! Thank you Curt & Debi
  9. We are finally moving on to another RV, so our current setup is for sale. 2001 Freightliner Century 500hp Detroit Diesel 12.7 pre emissions Eaton 3 pedal autoshift 3:42 gearing w/low pro 24.5's Currently 925k on truck, 450k on engine, 65k on remanned trans.& clutch. Custom bed, Registered RV plates. Many upgrades. 2003 Keystone Sprinter 299 RLS Travel Trailer Clean, Many Upgrades! Pics of both on request! Curt
  10. Trying to figure why?

    Dave; I have been on this forum since 2003. I have been to one of the 1st west coast get togethers, met many folks. I have been involved with many a topic, even had differences of opinions with many. Especially when it comes to the V vs F brand! That being said, you were the first to visit with me "at my house" no questions asked, our bond was our love of HDT's (and motorcycles)! So in my book (unless you have changed) you are a stand up guy and are welcome anytime! Back to the topic at hand... Was the restriction valid? Personally I do not know "all of Sibernuts posts", but the related post should not have had the recourse they applied. To the folks who want to make this forum into something other than "about the HDT's" or lifestyle, please find another venue. Myself along with others come here "for the HDT's"! Just something to think about when it comes to our "differences" .....Unless you have walked in "their shoes" you will (never) understand their view! Thank you Curt
  11. 2 Question? GPS and smart car??

    I am curious, "these days" why would you still use a dedicated gps and not your phone or tablet? Curt
  12. Configure a HDT to Compare to a F350 Crewcab Long Box

    Jeff is right about the trailer. When we had the Airstream our mpg was 1+ better than our current Sprinter with a flatter nose cap, consistently. The Sprinter is heavier but I think its the aerodynamics are which plays the most. Since I'm talking travel trailers the distance from BOC remains the same. Curt
  13. Quick and easy hauler bed!

    Heavymetal; That is a great idea! Quick and easy bed that can be used for more than a place for a "Smart Car". Haul dirt or peat for the yard, no problem! Put a tarp in it, fill it with water....now a portable pool! Drop the sides now you have a flat bed! And I bet it was no where near $10k! Easy to modify for those 5th wheel needs too! Great idea! Curt
  14. Pulling doubles in washington state

    No! You cannot tow doubles unless commercial in Washington state. Period! Curt
  15. Dead 1/2 on and 1/2 off of the highway

    Jack; I for one Thank You for all the work you do here and for the HDT family. But I think alot of people that try these really don't know what their in for. The care and feeding of these "can" be quite harsh, and it can happen to any of us. New or used truck! I know alot that read and get info from here and there and just "jump into" the deal, really don't understand but they proceed. Only to say it didn't work out and sell the truck in 2 to 4 years or sooner with much money spent. Typically that deal only truly satisfies the next owner of the truck. Good luck Vegas Teacher! Curt
