    Screen Door Replacement

    Good day all, I am wanting to replace our existing screen door mostly because of age. In the process I would like to upgrade it to include storm glass (Plexi of course). I know that a complete replacement of the door would correct this but I think that is going too far time and money wise...

    Michelin Defenders Question

    Having run LTX's for years on my dually and not really needing the mud and snow tread I went all in and got Michelin Ribs. Now that they have been on the truck for 5 months and 6000 miles I am impressed. I have gained 1 mpg with less rolling resistance and really no sign of wear. I like that...

    Emissions Delete Duramax

    It is routine for LEO to ask to search your vehicle when they suspect something but they still must obtain a warrant if you say no. I have said no and they stop right there, if they make any comment I have them get their commander on scene. I'm polite but unwavering with my rights. If it is...

    Emissions Delete Duramax

    When you say "pulled over" was emissions the primary violation or was there another violation / probable cause that you were pulled over? The only thing an LEO is going to be able to see without a warrant is the exhaust system.

    Replace Edge M-21

    Do you like your Edge? I mean if say it was two years old would you want to replace it? Answer those questions first instead of letting a few parks (maybe a 100 vs 11000 parks that have a 10 ten rule. Our Heartland is a 2011 and we have no intention of getting a new one because of the poor...

    Use of Emergency Break-Away (when changing RV tire)

    Re: jomimac You could do that but why? It's going to draw down your electrical power, heat up the brakes and may not lock them as much as you they will. Why not crack all the lug nuts loose prior to jacking up that axle? That's standard procedure if one does not have a impact gun.

    ATF: Bighorn - Issues

    You have to admit that at least 50% of the listed issues could/should have been take care of during the dealerships PDI and then purchaser's PDI. The fact that it was purchased at a Camping World explains 90% of the issues. Now let's see who steps up to resolve these issues; Heartland will on...

    SWC window shades.

    I would order them myself. We had one shade that was wrong/damaged from the factory. Ordered a replacement three times and three times received the wrong color. Just pulled out one with the right color and ordered from Lowe's.

    What’s the best truck to pull a BIGHORN?

    In late Spring while moving from Midland to Kermit at lunch time we had a rear tire failure on our dually. At the time both my wire and I though it was on the Big Country but finding no damage, all tires there and with tread I walked down the passenger side of the truck to find the outer dual...

    Sailun Truck Tires

    Just got done putting Ribs all around our TV a month ago and that was a step up from the XTS i use to run. I switched to the Ribs because the two of the XTS's failed and destroyed my box. So $1800 for the tires and $6K for a new bed.

    MorRyde SRE 4000 suspension -- jury still out

    I thought the SRE 4000 came with the extra framing that is bolted/welded to the frame. I think I need to research this again because all these running gear failures are keeping me a wake during the day.

    EZ Snap RV Shades

    I agree that awnings are the most effective way to shade the windows and keep the heat out. Problem is they are useless when it's windy. Here in Texas it is always windy. We bought a very nice easy up canopy used for two days and had to take it down. Even with 10 ropes to hold it down in the...

    2002 Trailblazer... Is it enuff?

    Bill, let's put some numbers on paper here (so to speak) and figure it out. Need to know some information from you first. 2002 Trailblazer with what engine. Need the GVWR from the door sticker on the truck. Need the GVWR from the sticker on the trailer. (dry weight is meaningless) With...

    EZ Snap RV Shades

    Did you order light colored material? I'm thinking of just adding more insulation to the walls most affected by the sun. Cover the windows as well. Floor to ceiling and ceiling too.
