i have never understood a ladder than collapses for storage. as how can it be safe for a 200+ pound man to be working on.
as just trying to get up it, the 200 pounds becomes a LOT more pushing the body up, or "wiggling" around doing something.
one would think the hold outs would fail and the ladder would collapse while you are on it. and a couple i have seen move around as in Not stable in the build. like a fixed ladder is. weight can even be heaver due to more material in the tubing.
i can not say for the computer thingy, but if you have loss of traction. just take your foot off the skinny pedal. so the spinning tire has a chance to get a grip. as for a dash light, just remove the bulb.
i had a ghost in a computer some years back, cost me $5,grand to have the dealer fix it. then six months latter a fool hit me head on and totaled the truck. wish i had just lived with the ghost.
Since at least 2001 I have used Mobil 1 synthetic engine oil and Amsoil synthetic ATF for the tranny in my Dodge Ram 2500 V10 and two rams V8 1500s and absolutely no serious issue with engines or transmissions and often towing 4500 lb trailer in the mountains plus often rough off road use in western BLM lands and national FS.
I normally use walmart and oil/filter changes are cheap to me. Change the oil every 3000 miles (normally) or sooner if dirty looking (dark). Almost always use Mobil 1 oil filters. trucks have 138,000 miles on V10, 94,000 miles on a 1500 and 100,000 + miles on other 1500. Only need to add tiny amount of ATF every 6 months or so. Still going strong. The V10 is a towing monster and I can afford the gas.
Works for me. MMHBA TYFYC
