  1. Take a look at Arlo pro security cameras, they are an affiliate of Netgear. I haven't personally worked with them but my nephew is very happy with his. They are a little pricey but you get what you pay for.

    Volvo questions

    We haul using a 730 with a 2.47 rear end, we pull a 42ft. fifth wheel carrying a RZR S 1000 or a JD Gator sideways. The 12 gear I-shift that is matched up with the 2.47 rear end does not have Overdrive. I think but am not positive most of the 2.47 rear ends have direct drive I-shifts without Overdrive. The sweat spot for this truck is around 66-67 mph turning 1,350 rpm. This produces a little under 8 mpg depending on the head wind and grade. The RZR without the front and rear bumpers is 106" long. Our bed width is 101 so we carry 2 inches over on the drivers side and 3 inches on the pass
  3. We used discount Ramps, if i remember the clearance is 4.5 inches.
  4. 1. YES... Built my Truck using it and still use it today. 2. Windows PC Thanks for all the work!!!!!!
  5. Ron I mounted the I shift to the plastic panel on the seat in the same location as the OEM seat using the OEM bracket. It is still going strong after 2 years and 100 lb dogs jumping on it. The Volvo adapter plate was mounted 180 degrees off, luckily I noticed it before I mounted the Seat. Safe travels Bob
  6. Two Thumbs up on the Knoedler Air Chief. We purchased Drivers and Passengers.... a little pricey but well worth the money. Bob & Kay
  7. Awesome Job!!! Farmers are the King of Recycling LOL! It looks like it should hookup to the pickup as well. Many more uses than Just carrying your Ramps.
  8. The resource guide has a list of service centers, with comments of the service provided. http://www.hhrvresource.com/node/95
  9. That's how we had to do it as well. Commercial until registered as MH.
  10. This might not help everyone since our policy is part of a commercial farm policy but if you own a farm or a company it might apply. We just paid our premium to Auto-Owners Ins. Co. for 2020 which included 2 vehicles for a total cost of $1,300. The first vehicle is a 2000 F350 PL PD only, it is listed as being principally garaged and used on the farm by a 67 yr. old fart. The second Vehicle is a 2012 Volvo MotorHome with collision, a $5,000 deductible and is valued at $78,000. We are listed as the interested party and the lessor of the Volvo. We are stated as an additional insured and loss
  11. No camera for the first year. Lining up the hitch side to side is similar to a commercial trailer, the issue you have is getting the height of the trailer correct. I Usually had to climbed out of the tractor to take a peak at the height when I was getting close if I didn't have an extra set of eyes to make the adjustment. We now have a camera which is nice and gives you the ability to see the hitch connect and lock but they aren't necessary. With your experience you won't have any problems.
  12. Agree with Phil (Big5er), and Georgia. Have your story straight with your state laws in hand and make sure you have insurance. The Insurance might be provided with the temporary plates from the sellers company but I would check with them. Our truck was 1000 miles from home, the commercial hitch and air lines were removed. We did avoided the Chicago traffic for our first trip!!!!!........ but we did smile as we drove pass all the weigh stations. 50,000 miles later....we have never been stopped for not entering the weigh stations. We were stopped for not using the truck route in a small town

  14. X4๐Ÿ˜ Depo Brand/deep space lighting from Dave. It was the best mod we did... worth every penny!
  15. 2X. We use 5th wheel pin that slides into Goose-neck shaft when using the HDT. The horses appreciate the air ride hitch. https://www.etrailer.com/Gooseneck-and-Fifth-Wheel-Adapters/etrailer/KPG5-R30IP.html
