  1. Dennis this will definitely increase the comfort level of how to shift for your wife. Once calibrated to your transmission it gives you all available gears for your speed and rpm.
  2. Thank you for all the replies and help.
  3. That’s a good looking truck
  4. Thx for all the replies. I have an extended stay kit that I have never installed. Been packing it for years. It is basically a Tee that goes between the tank and the regulator. Need to find a longer extension hose and I think I can make that work. I was contemplating putting a changeover valve between the two 100 lb tanks but think this is overkill. If I am thinking through this correctly when the big tank runs out it should switch back over to the 30 lb tank in the trailer. That would let me know it is time for a refill. At least that is my thoughts right now.
  5. I have an opportunity for work that is going to allow me to have a little freedom. With that said we will be selling our home and living in the RV for a few months. Right now through the end of the year. We will not be in the harshest of environments for the new job but it will still be winter. We will be in Tri Cities Washington. I have two 100lb propane tanks that I want to plumb in to be able to save on trips to the filling station. I also want to put an automatic change over valve between the 100lb tanks so I can tell when one is empty and just go fill it when needed. So, here is my question. If I plumb in line with the existing tanks with like a Sturgis fitting I would be going through 2 regulators. My dual stage change over currently on the trailer as well as the one plumbed between the two 100lb tanks. Is this a problem? Am I overthinking this? Is there an easier way or something I am missing? I posted here cause y’all are pretty creative πŸ™‚ even though this is not technically HDT related. Thanks, Tom
  6. I have a basically brand new Gearmaster II that I am going to sell. I had it in my 99 Volvo with a 10 speed manual when I first got it. There is no doubt it helped me learn to shift quickly. I sold the Volvo and never put it in the KW. Price is $500 OBO. They are $1000 new. PM me if interested or you would like more info.

  8. I was the same as Chad. My T2000 ate cab air bags. I always place blocks. Between the cab and the frame when sitting. I have not replaced a bag in the past 4 years since I have started this. I use a 4x4 block cut to length. Just remember to remove them before traveling or they can really get stuck under the cab. Ask me how I know 😳
  9. I have two 5’ sections of Volvo frame rail if anyone is in need to extend your frame. This was for my 99 610 truck. They are square cut on both ends as I just flipped them over and bolted to my frame on that truck. They are located in Snohomish Wa, north of Seattle and free if they can help someone else. Otherwise I will just be sending to the scrap pile.
  10. 1.1 million on the chassis. Previous owner told me that motor had 300,000 on it when I purchased it but I don’t have any paperwork to prove that.
  11. We have decided to sell our HDT as we pursue another project. This is a 2000 KW T2000. Truck has a super 10 transmission and is very easy to drive. Motor is Cat 3406E set at 450 hp. Just had serviced which included: -oil and filters changed to include fuel -all fluids checked and topped off including differentials -ac checked -clutch adjusted -brakes on the rear axles. -air dryer filter changed -rear suspension airbags replaced cab airbags replaced last fall -front end inspection -full inspection Set up for a family. I have a jackknife sofa on the bottom bunk. Truck has minor damage as shown in photos and has been there since before we purchased. Frame extended with 20’ deck. I set this up to haul a 4 seat sxs or a jeep. We just returned from a 3000 mile trip and it never missed a beat. Asking $25,000 OBO. Hercules virgin tires all the way around that are 4 years old. Titled and registered as a motorhome in Washington state. We live in Snohomish. https://photos.app.goo.gl/2oy8cmwv31gHwg6u5
  12. I second Hercules tires. I have been running them on all 3 axles for the past 5 years and have been very happy with them, including the price.
