  1. You will probably get a much larger audience on the FB HDT groups. They are quickly growing (one is over 24k members) and this should easily be of interest to someone. You are welcome to post it in the HDT - Heavy Duty Trucks for RV'ing group - (https://www.facebook.com/groups/HDTRVs) HDT's - (https://www.facebook.com/groups/418646581821896) - Not sure if they'll allow it in that group HDT's for sale - https://www.facebook.com/groups/368741390204588 (It should be allowed in here)
  2. I meant type it out completely so that bots pick it up. I don't think the bots have gotten savvy enough to put together hey my email is this + this, but the OP could figure it out.
  3. I'm interested in info and pics on the 780. It appears you can't receive direct messages. I don't want to share my e-mail type out in full publicly since bots can pick it up, but it's my username and gmail if you can send info and pics.
  4. Hi Rickeieio, Yeah, we tend to spend a lot of time here during the summer and love this area. We bounce between Salida, Poncho Springs, Buena Vista areas. My friend Scott is a rider too. We are both working on getting bikes again.
  5. It's funny to see my thread bumped from 4 years ago. Buscrusher, I don't think that person was offering up a GearMaster II, just letting me know what they were and this was 4 years ago. I almost gave in so many times to getting a Gear Master II which I think I would have appreciated, but never did. I never did see any come up used in the time I owned the truck and was keeping an eye out for them. Overall I got very comfortable with shifting the 10 spd. I would occasionally have my moments when I was rushing things or getting flustered, but if I slowed down and just took my time, I had no issues. I never did get my wife comfortable with shifting the truck and that ended up being why we got rid of it plus we wanted a pickup for a truck camper. We tried a few times and she finally gave up and refused to try again. She did drive an iShift truck at at the ECR and enjoyed it, but just decided the manual wasn't for her and wouldn't try again. I actually took other friends out and got them to figure out the basics. We sold the HDT last year and the new owner loves it to pull his very large Momentum Toy Hauler. I definitely miss driving it and I really miss hauling a 5th wheel with it. There just is no comparison with towing with an HDT vs a pickup. That 610 singled short was the perfect size for what we used it for. It was fun reading my story again about picking it up. Funny tidbit, my friend Scott that helped me drive the truck back to GA. Him and his wife decided to go full time 2 years after we did and we are actually hanging out with them right now in Salida, CO. They've had 3 RV's in 2 years and just got back into a 5th wheel after a large Class A DP. He was considering a HDT himself, but I think he's found a Ram 3500 he's going to get.
  6. We've stayed there before. Nice park and I really enjoy walking down to the river from there.
  7. You'll probably want to include the location for potential buyers.
  8. Yeah, that rust issue could be a bit of a repair for sure. Good luck on the sale.
  9. Just as an FYI, a 1999 model will be a 770, not that it makes much difference, but it is a 1st generation truck. It should be all pre-emissions though which is nice. Good luck with the sale. That's a lot of truck for that price. If you are FB user, you can probably post here in these groups for a much wider audience plus share pictures much easier.

  10. Let me know if/when you decide to go Lithium drop in. I've installed a lot of BB & Lion Energy UT1300's and I gotta say I really like the Lion Energy ones. I recently became a reseller of them also so I can offer good prices on them. The group 24 size also is nice as they are physically smaller and they can do up to 150amp discharge per battery.
  11. I would agree that I would not have a dealer put in your solar. That price is definitely high (maybe not for a dealer). This summer I basically had to redo a solar system someone had a dealer install for them and they actually had done their homework and had high quality Victron parts, all the fuses, breakers, etc. The dealer handed them back a box of parts and said they didn't need all that, yet the system didn't even work when it left the dealers lot. I spent 8-10 hours cleaning it all up for them. The time it takes to install definitely adds up too. I don't focus on installs although I do them now and then, but I do solar consulting and if you think you are capable of some DIY with guidance, I offer a service where customers can come to me, and I basically guide them as they install their own system. This greatly helps you understand your system and you are doing the labor saving you a lot of money. I have my site in my profile if you want to reach out to me.
  12. What type of Jeep? Our 2003 Jeep Wrangler does not register tow miles. It's a digital odometer and electronic speed pickup. The ignition would need to be on for it to register miles. Usually it's only cable driven speedometers like the older Geo Tracker had that registrar's tow miles.
  13. There is also currently a sale on the Lion Energy UT1300's. (105ah/1344wh) until July 5th. It's $1400 for 2 105ah Lion Energy UT1300's with free shipping in the CONUS. You can reach out directly to me for more info. They are physically smaller than the battle born batteries and have full BMS protection. They do have a basic 5 light SOC right on each battery. Comes in handy if you are troubleshooting a dead battery. I've installed several BB & UT1300 batteries in rigs and both are very nice. The one thing I do like with the Lion's is they do support up to a 150amp discharge per battery. Really not an issue if you run more than 1, but if someone is running only 1 lithium, the BB can hit their BMS protection with say a microwave, while the Lion easily handles that load.
