What gets me is the items that don’t cost anything to fix. For instance on my 3100rl the switches for rear overhead lights are on the back wall behind the recliners. You can’t reach them when...

The max inflation pressure is just that, the maximum pressure you can, not necessarily should, have in your tires. Go look at your passenger car tires, I bet your door sticker says to run them at a...

OP states that he has a inch and three quarter drop when hooked to trailer. I would venture to guess that's pretty much average, if not on the low side, of what we see. If that little of drop is...

The progressive industries EMS doesn't shut down until you drop below 104 volts, so I think you would be good to that. I would however try not to run consistently at that low of voltage.

1 3/4 drop is not bad, so I'm guessing your trucks suspension is adequate for the load. How about just adjusting your headlights? Much easier and cheaper, and certainly worth a try.

Dot 3 brake fluid has a wet boiling point of apx 400 degrees Fahrenheit. At that point you will start to get brake fade. If you release the brakes and stay off them the temp will go back down and...
