    buddy ii ramps

    I'm in Detroit and the ramps could ship to me.
  2. I installed some new bulbs in my T2000 over the winter but have not used them yet. Purchased through Summit Racing. P# UPD-A5023-3 They were $17.99 ea. and came with a H4 halogen bulb. Install was easy. The hole in the dish needed to be opened to allow the bulb rubber grommet to clear. Jeff

    New shoes

    We installed Roadmaster closed shoulder tires on our tow rig and on the trailer. They are Cooper tires made in China. Good price and really happy with the performance over the last 2 years. Jeff
  4. Yes it can be re cleared. The area must be scuffed for the clear to adhere. I use red scotchbright pads. You should feather in the areas where the clear has peeled away. Make sure to clean the area very good. I have repaired my truck this way and will be doing it again this year. 3k to 6k seems a bit steep to paint a hood.

    Generator ?

    Look into Powertech generators. We have one on the race trailer 12k. I couldn't fit the enclosed unit in the space I had so I had to use the non enclosed. Not super loud but not enclosed quiet either. Almost 6000hrs and still running strong. Oil changes and air filter are all it really needs.
  6. Correct. Only bolted connections.
  7. New Parallax power converter/charger. Model #8345 Ordered 2, used the first one that arrived. This is a new unit. $200 + shipping Text is best 313-410-1367 Jeff
  8. After much net searching and reading we have decided on a Winegard X2 with a Wally. Purchasing though Amazon Warehouse for significantly less than through Dish. We shall see how this progresses in the next couple weeks. Thank you for the replies. Jeff
  9. We will have 1 TV. Trees are never a problem. Part time. No recording of programs needed. Dish would be the provider. HD would be nice. Ease of setup is a bonus. Being that we travel in the eastern time zone will I need a Dish that sees the eastern satellites or will one that only sees the western ones work. The furthest south and east would be Valdosta Ga. Thanks Jeff
  10. We are looking to add a Satellite system to our Race Rig. We travel mostly down I-75 and west to St. Louis. Not looking to spend a fortune. Are there any systems that we should stay away from? I have been reading up on the subject but there are so many conflicting stories I am not sure on which system would work best. Thank you Jeff

    HDT Tires

    I purchased Cooper Roadmaster Drive tires for the race rig this spring and have been very satisfied with the performance. I will be installing Cooper tires on the steer axle this year. Michelin uses their own sizing system for their tires.
  12. If you are going to use a twist drill, I would recommend using M42 cobalt drill bits. They will stay sharper longer. You will find them at Production Tool or similar tooling outlets. Drill a pilot hole. My personal choice would be to use a Rotobroach style tool. These look like small hole saws, but more accurate. Jeff

    2nd trip report

    Something to check on the overtemp genset. Look at the radiator fins. The genset radiator on my race trailer was caked with an oily mess where the fan had picked up dirt and covered the radiator fins closed. No air flow. I used Totally Awsome full strength and a garden hose to clear mine.
  14. Shawn, I store my race trailer and Semi in Melvindale next to Baker College on Outer Drive. I have stored there for 7 yrs. and have not had an issue. Well lit and has web cameras.
