  1. I see that our Good Sam membership affords fuel discounts at "select" Pilot & Flying J truck stops. I'm curious what your experience has been in getting these discounts. On the Flying J website, they show a list of participating locations. Only the Yuma AZ is listed... seems pretty limited. http://images.goodsam.com/goodsamclub/pfj/pfj_diesel_discounts_2017.pdf Also, do you need to have a Pilot or Flying J credit card, or can you just use your GS membership card with a debit/credit card?
  2. So like others who are pulling an RV, I'd like to add an auxiliary diesel fuel tank to my 2016 Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie dually. I've identified a tank I'd like....and RDS from Northern Tool. But I'm having a difficult time finding a shop that will install it. Neither my local mechanic or dealership will take on the work. I've consulted with several friends in the area that are known to have made custom mods on their "toys" and got nothing regarding referrals. So since my salesman, who I got the truck from is a good friend, I asked him "Why am I having such a hard time?". He said there are few willing to do it anymore since DOT regulations and the liability associated with leaks and spills are not worth it. Still, he has a contact or two that he is going to ask, but suggested I take to the forums for help. I do have one friend who did the same to his Dodge truck and can use his mechanic, but that's 90 mins away and am trying to avoid the trip if not needed. If I do need to travel, then so be it. What am I missing? Are others who have been thru this finding the same challenges? I live in north central Ohio on Lake Erie, so anyone with recommendations in the Amherst, Vermillion, Huron, Sandusky, Norwalk or Port Clinton area would be appreciated.
  3. My partner Rhapsody & I are heading out on a journey from South East Texas (beginning of June 2016) westward through New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, California & landing in southwestern Oregon for an event in July 2016 in our BFT powered RV & are wondering if we can connect with WVO burners along the way who can provide filtered & dewatered (preferably centrifuged) Waste Vegetable Oil. Let me know if you can help us not burn dino-fuel for this trip. Thanks!
  4. Hello, I have a 34' 1989 Fleetwood Bounder on a Chevy P32 Chassis. The darn thing sat for 6 years, so, I've replaced several things. Recently I replaced the carburetor with a Uremco 3-3837 and it's now running. However, it dies going uphill and/or shifting into 3rd and 4th gear. I was told the throttle position sensor (TPS) and idle air control motor (IAC) should be replaced and it should fix the issue. I was also told that if it does not fix the issue it's most likely because my engine control module (ECM) got use to running a certain way and it probably needs to be replaced as well. The manual says the ECM should be under the steering column support bracket but, it's not there . I cannot for the life of me figure out where any of those parts are located on my Chevy 454. I've read several threads and see that the TPS is usually on the throttle body (TBI) but, cannot find it. I'm also confused since it has a carburetor and is not fuel injected. Does anybody know where I can find those components? Or any other suggestions on what could be the problem? I'm beginning to think that since I do not have a TBI and instead it has a carburetor that I do not have an IAC, or an ECM and the TPS is located in the carb. Am i right? Also, why does it die ? Anybody have any suggestions as to what I should check? It seems as though the fuel filters are getting plenty of gas. So, my thought is that it may be somewhere between the fuel filters and the new mechanical pump. ANY HELP WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED So far I've replaced these components of the fuel system: vacuum hoses carburetor fuel filters several times mechanical fuel pump spark plugs and wires distributor cap and rotor Questions Recap: 1. ) Do I have an Idle air control motor, If so, where is it? 2. ) Do I have an engine control module, If so, where is it? 3. ) What can I do to diagnose the fuel delivery issue? Could it be a sensor, a pump, or a filter that I don't know about? Thanks so much for the help!!
  5. We scoured a few of the news reports from today about AAA's claims that gas prices will be even cheaper in 2016 than last year. Learn where gas was the cheapest in 2015 and when gas might be the most expensive this year: http://youngfulltimers.com/gas-will-be-even-cheaper-in-2016-learn-where-itll-be-cheapest/
  6. My husband and I are preparing to embark on becoming fulltime rv'ers, and would like some input on roadside assistance. We currently have AAA, but have heard about Good Sam Club is better. We have a fifth wheel with extended insurance coverage, but my main concern when traveling in a remote or unknown state we unexpectedly experience a blown tire or engine problems. In other words, we become stranded. Who would you recommend to be a reliable and proficient roadside assistance company?
