  1. It a Volvo 500 hp D13. I do not have any of the maintenance records.
  2. SOLD I have a beautiful 2012 Volvo 730 for sale. It has 1.1 M KM on it but the transmission and blue def system were replaced at 1M KM. The frame has been sandblasted an painted and it has been degreased. It has passed a mechanical fitness in August 2020 and has not been on the road since. This unit has been really well cared for and is in really good condition. I have started to convert this truck to haul my fifth wheel but it will need to be completed. Due to new health issues I will no longer be able to travel and must regrettably abandon my dream truck. The truck still has both rear axles as I was going to leave it this way. I have installed a Trailer Saver hitch, the trailer wiring is complete using a Jackalopee and the trailer brakes are installed using a Tuson DirecLink Controller. The truck has the factory fridge, dinette, and cabin heater. All that is left to finish this truck is a deck and a rear view camera but that will be up to the new owner to finish as they please. I am going to take a loss on this truck and asking $30, 000 Canadian firm. More pictures of whatever you want to seen can be sent. Truck is located half way between Sudbury ON and Sault St. Marie ON. 2012 41' Redwood Fifth wheel in excellent hardly used condition also available $40,000 2016 Smart car with 38,000 KM also available. $9000
  3. Yes indeed. Ordered a Jackalopee and a DirecLink DL-100 brake controller with HDT module kit. This should get me started but the list is very long.
  4. Thanks to everyone for taking time for this question even though the answer was always painfully obvious... $$$. I was just hoping there was someone out there that had done this and had great results. I will hitch my fiver to my Ford to check the pressure on the air bag and see what happens. And don't worry I knew what I was getting myself into... I will try and list my campground soon. Thanks.
  5. Hello Nigel! You are correct that we met at my campground in Spragge. I think I was telling you about the nice copper color 730 that I found. Well I bought it even though it will clash with my fiver. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1R3LSKD_sQzEuldhpWj4icYEC6p4P0Ui3/view?usp=sharing
  6. I have a 2012 redwood Fifth Wheel 38GK with a factory installed Lippert Tri Glide Air Ride Pin Box by Trailair . This Pin has rollers that I believe are to absorb shock when braking. Can anyone clarify the purpose of these rollers? I just purchased a 2012 Volvo 730 that I am contemplating singling but that is an issue for later. I know this has probably been debated before and I have searched for answers but I am still unclear on what I should do. I have read that I shouldn't have both an air ride hitch and an air ride pin as they can end up working against each other. I really don't want to spend the big dollars on an air ride hitch if I don't have to. If I really need one, do I need to also replace the air pin to a solid pin. I am very much wanting to install my Demco Recon hitch (or similar) on the truck and letting the air pin absorb the shock. Has anyone done this and is this a good idea or not? I realize that an air hitch is a better choice but I want to know if just the air pin will work and I also know that I can't use the Volvo's current hitch.
