  1. I’m posting this here because I figured this is the location with the most Smart car owners. I had to take my first longer trip with our Smart (2016 Smart) last night covering 265 miles with a 2 hour break in the middle. After traveling for about 80 miles on the first leg the interior of the car was getting warming and I noticed that there was very little air flow out of the air conditioning vents and about 10-20 miles later there was for the most part no air flow. If I played with the fan setting and turned it to high it sounded louder and if it was blowing air but nothing coming out of the vents. After dinner with my son’s family I got back on the road and the air conditioner was working fine and air flow was back to normal. Then sure enough at about 80 miles into the 2nd leg of my trip the same thing happen and again 10-20 miles further and very little to no air flow. I’m taking it to Mercedes tomorrow but I know they’re not going to replicate the problem. So I’m taking a chance that someone else with a Smart has already experience the same thing or maybe has an idea of what would cause this? Thanks for any feedback. Kevin

  5. I sold my truck but the buyer did not want the ramps. This pair of 14-foot-long by 19-inches-wide aluminum ramps were purchased from Discount Ramps for about $1100 in spring of 2016. They have been used very little. Included in the purchase will be the hold-down hardware as shown. These brackets and clamps are custom fabricated in stainless steel and aluminum. There are aluminum angle end stops and stainless clamp brackets, along with the padlocked stainless foam-padded clamps you see in the photos. Each piece that bolts to the truck bed is secured by stainless screws (included) that thread into two-hole aluminum nut plates below the deck. The brackets are designed such that the system is theft-proof once the two padlocks are locked. [Note: the cable visible on top of the ramps in the photo is unrelated. Truck and motorcycle not included.] The ramp model number is HD-16838-1500. The weight rating is 1500 lbs per axle. When used side-by-side the total ramp width is 38 inches; this is how I used them for loading my motorcycle. They could also be deployed with an appropriate spacing for loading a Smart Car. Ramps Page I can supply a drawing for locating the holes for fastening the brackets to your truck bed. In the case of my wooden bed, I recessed all the brackets about 1/2-inch deep, by routing pockets in the wood. But you could also surface-mount the brackets and the system would still work fine. I am located in Prescott Valley, Arizona; the ramps must be picked up here as I do not want to ship them. Please PM me for details and more photos if you are interested.

  8. We have a 2001 Volvo VNL64T660 and 2009 SmartCar combo for sale. The Volvo has the Eaton Fuller Autoshift 10 speed transmission, the transmission is programmed to start out in 3rd instead of 1st. We have never had to use 1st or 2nd to start, only to "creep" in heavy traffic. The engine is the VED 12, 465 hp, 1650 ft lbs torque. The truck has 603,XXX miles, was originally bought out of commercial in 2008 with 535,150 miles, we purchased it with 572,XXX miles. We are the second owners who have used it as an RV hauler. The previous owners were HDT forum members and I can provide their name/contact info, with their permission of course. After our purchase the truck was singled long and has a custom bed by 2L Custom Trucks. The bed is fully skirted and has a loader that can be raised from the road side to take the break out of loading a vehicle and allow unloading to the curb side out of traffic if needed. The truck is configured in the "weed burner" style and has had a drom box added right behind the cab. The commercial trailer wiring has been converted using the Jackalope system and I put in two solid wire runs from the Jackalope to the rear of the bed for both truck and trailer lights, I then put in two weather proof J boxes to allow repair/replacement of truck or trailer wiring without having to do a splice job each time, you can just build a replacement pigtail and install it. The truck has the ET Hitch and it was upgraded/modified by Henry S. in 2014. The ET gets it's air supply from the truck slider switch on the dash so you can isolate the hitch and not put any air in it if required. The bed was designed to allow a full 60" clearance between where the loading ramps sit on the bed to the front of our fifth wheel, plenty of pivot room. We previously carried a Can-Am Spyder tryke with extremely low front end clearance, the adjustable height loader allowed us to load without scraping bottom. The SmartCar loads without having to use the loader. There is a electric winch system stored in the drivers side front bed compartment, once the "L" arm is attached to the side of the bed above the compartment it allows you to safely winch up the SmartCar. The L arm has two positions, one is centered on the loader that we used for the Spyder tow slings and one offset to the left for use with the SmartCar tow hook. You can drive the SmartCar up if you prefer, we usually winch it up and then drive it down. There are three (3) 2,000 lb ramps from Discount Ramps included, there are three because of the previous requirements of the Spyder. The SmartCar is held down by a eTrack system with straps that go over the front and rear tires on each side of the car, very secure and easy to use for transport. There is a Onan 6500 QD generator (390 hours) installed on the passenger side front bed compartment, it's tapped into the twin 125 gal diesel tanks . The genset compartment has a 50 amp receptacle for external connection in a weather proof box, the electrical cord runs out thru the bottom of the bed. The generator also charges the truck batteries. We have used it dry camping to keep our batteries (truck and fifth wheel) topped up as well as other people's rigs. Nice to have the gen set on the truck where you can position it away from the campsite to reduce the noise. Installing it on the truck also freed up the generator compartment on the fifth wheel and added the weight the generator would have taken up as increased personal cargo capacity. The generator has had the fuel pump replaced under the Onan service bulletin citing premature fuel pump failure. The work was done at Rocky Mountain Onan Cummins in Denver and was covered under warranty. Other annual service has been done by me. The truck has an Vector Maxx SST Model VEC056C 2500W modified sine inverter and pass through shore power capability (30 amp marine receptacle, with power cord included). There are 110 outlets in the interior as well as in the driver luggage compartment which houses all the electrical components. The batteries are kept up by the Progressive Dynamics Intellipower 9100 power converter/battery minder system. The truck also has it's own 100 watt solar panel with controller. The solar panel is mounted on top of the drom box and can be tilted manually if needed. Nice to have when you have to park the truck away from the campsite for extended periods. There are an additional two storage compartments on each side of the rear of the bed. I use these for leveling blocks and the messy truck stuff we all have to carry. There is a compressed air outlet in the drivers side rear compartment. The drom box has two doors, the upper door is configured horizontally and opens upward. The lower door opens from passenger side to drivers side vertically. The lower compartment has three levels. The lower level is 30" H by 26" D by 70" W. All measurements are from interior wall to wall and shelf to shelf. The middle compartment is 24" H by 26" D by 70" W. The upper compartment is 18" H by 26" D by 70" W. The upper level compartment is 18" H by 26" D by 70" W. There are three (3) cargo lock bars included, the nice ones that ratchet out and then fine tune with the twist and lock system. This box will hold a lot of stuff, we almost filled up a 8 X 12 shed when we emptied it. In the truck cab interior the lower bunk has been removed and a dinette/seating area custom built by 2L Custom. There are four lap seat belts installed if needed. We have had 3 grandkids back there comfortably. The table is the marine octagon type on a pedestal and is removable, it stays removed most of the time for us. The upper bunk remains and can be used as a sleeper and has the cargo net so it can be used as storage and not have things flying around the cab for those unexpected stops. The cab has a trucker fridge mounted in the upper portion of the "coat closet" behind the passenger seat. Not on the floor where you can't get to your items, having it at eye levels makes it much more useful. The bottom half of the coat closet can still be used to hang coats and things. There is a custom cabinet behind the drivers seat that has a microwave and self contained sink. The sink is not fancy but serves to wash your hands, brush your teeth etc. There is no porta potti, but there is a space under the dinette seating area to store one if desired, we just chose not to use one. There is a RAM computer work table for the co-pilot that swivels around to use when traveling. Cosmetically the truck is in good shape. The interior has no tears or cracks in the dash, the seats both have cloth seat covers on them, are air ride and adjustable and all the adjustments work. The dinette area is pretty much brand new. The exterior has the normal road chips and dings you would expect from a 14 year old truck. It's not perfect but not trashed out either, nothing effects the functionality of the truck. The SmartCar is a Silver and Black 2009 Brabus Cabriolet with 54,XXX miles. We purchased it from an individual in Chandler, AZ in 2014. The car was sold new at Chandler Mercedes Benz to a lady, she kept it 3 years and then traded it in on a new Passion Coupe, she decided the convertible was not for her. One of the salesmen bought it from the dealer and kept it 2 years, then bought a Mercedes G wagon that had been traded in so had no more use for the Smart. Car has been in AZ most of it's life but was garaged kept by both owners. It has the power convertible top and removable panels to make it look like a true convertible with the top down. It runs great and also has no problems. We put Blue Ox base plates on it to allow a contingency plan if we needed to tow it with our motor coach or the Volvo. We plan on getting a Jeep Rubicon to pull behind the motor coach. We just finished a 4K mile year of traveling (family issues limited us this year and is why we missed the HDT rally), and have done as much as 8K in one year with no major problems. Everything works and the truck runs fine. In 2013 on the way to the HDT rally we had the oil pressure sensor go bad, replaced with no further problems. We just had the air conditioner system components replaced due to leaks in Oct. 2015. The work was done by Transwest in Denver, Co. Blows really cold cab air now. All scheduled maintenance has been done on an annual basis, usually wherever we spent the winter months. The top end maintenance was completed by the previous owner before we bought it, engine should be good til a million miles before overhaul. there are absolutely no fluid leaks and the truck does not use oil. We bought this truck at the 2011 HDT rally on the advice of several of the members of the HDT forum who were there, this was our first truck and we had absolutely no experience driving or maintaining a big rig. We have not been disappointed with their recommendation, it's been a great truck, made pulling a heavy fifth wheel as easy and safe as possible. We have had two blowouts on the fifth wheel (bearing issues, another story) and the truck absolutely did not even swerve and got us stopped both times before any major damage was done by the tire shreds. We have parked our fifth wheel at the Escapees co-op park in Jojoba Hills, Ca. and no longer need the Volvo. We will continue to travel extensively in a '03 36' Foretravel motor coach we recently purchased. We are asking $65,000 for both vehicles as a turnkey unit, all you need is any size fifth wheel you'd like to pull and you're ready for the road. Truck and SmartCar are currently located in Temecula, Ca. for the winter. If you are seriously interested email me and I can provide my cell phone, pictures and more info as requested.
