  1. i have a 2017 GMC sierra 1500 is there anyway to disable the tailgate lock i don't have a cover so it is useless for me
  2. i have it, we pull a 4500 to 5000 Travel trailer, it works good in IMHO, little stiff if you set it with the black disk, that one is the stiffest, if you are not a fan of the Chevy "rake " be prepared if you set it with the black disk it will raise the rear end about 1 1/2 inches. overall it appears to be a good product i had mine about a year with no issues. i still have the crappy Rancho shocks, when i replace them I will get the 5100's had them on my 2014 and i really liked them
  3. I tow a 5000 lb Travel Trailer tongue weight is about 700 lb with an andersen WDH. i have zero sag. are you sure you WDH is setup correctly i installed these as the 1500 suspension is really to light for towing anything heavy. I was getting some porpoising on the uneven highway bridges cured the problem, https://www.bing.com/aclick?ld=e3xftMchbbw1ls9HmP6XgPBzVUCUwMc0_e7hVj2ktsRIMhUQ5mrWaZlxddZZyPCM9ofR2eju6zMKJi5lWI2bsLCb2fhZ9bQqD08cqQjoJ629iXbtaekPH2psjdJfbr39hmmYbeEqMRlJ9YIAnqzVfcSZ2BZy7Rhx4ob6RAbE-bEum_tPD7&u=aHR0cHMlM2ElMmYlMmZ3d3cuc3VtbWl0cmFjaW5nLmNvbSUyZnBhcnRzJTJmcmFzLTQ1MTUlM2ZzZWlkJTNkc3Jlc2UyJTI2Y21fbW1jJTNkcGxhLW1zbi1fLXNob3BwaW5nLV8tc3Jlc2UyLV8tcm9hZG1hc3Rlci1hY3RpdmUtc3VzcGVuc2lvbiUyNm1zY2xraWQlM2QlN2Jtc2Nsa2lkJTdkJTI2dXRtX3NvdXJjZSUzZGJpbmclMjZ1dG1fbWVkaXVtJTNkY3BjJTI2dXRtX2NhbXBhaWduJTNkQnJhbmRzJTI1MjAlMjU3QyUyNTIwUiUyNnV0bV90ZXJtJTNkNDU4MTkzOTgzMjcyNzI4MCUyNnV0bV9jb250ZW50JTNkR1NBUEklMjUyMDViYTI5NzRiYjRjMDM&rlid=7aadcb55bc941909d84f975b785ce227

    WHY ??? my Colorado had more punch than this thing
  5. don't know where you live but in Tennessee you have 72 hours to "walk away" from any car buying experience. it is a law
  6. Can I tow this?

    i like to tow at around 60 to 65 mph, we have a lot of mountains and that doesn't help with fuel millage, you can almost see the fuel gauge moving when going up a 6% grade for 3 or 4 miles.
  7. Can I tow this?

    I wouldn't i have a Forest river 21fbrs, dry weight is 3995 hitch 435, you can through those #'s out the window as they are very unrealistic. mine weighs 4670 hitch weight is 610 ready to go camping (CAT scales) and i have an Andersen WDH. I feel very comfortable towing this. I have seen many people tow much larger rigs and even seen folks towing a 5th wheel with a 1/2 ton. Having said that IMHO that is to much trailer my fuel milage sux when towing avg. about 10mpg i can only imagine that towing twice the weight it would be 6mpg at best, then you have to think about stopping even with a good trailer brake you have a lot of weight pushing you. If we ever deside to get a bigger Camper that will mean trading up to a 3/4 or 1 ton truck. call me over cautious but my wife is more important to me that anything and i would rather error on the side of safety
  8. pretty cool little 5th wheel wouldn't work for me i can't stand a wet bath
  9. take a piece of plastic about 2 foot square and tape it to the floor make sure you get a good seal leave it for a couple of days if you get condensation under it you have a wet basement and that can cause all kinds of smells
  10. yes it's a flagstaff 21fbrs. as for mice i don't know how often you are gonna be camping we are weekend warriors during the summer months. never seen any sign of mice, during the winter when it is winterized i put a bar of "irish spring soap in the bathroom one in the main living and one in the storage, apparently they don't like the smell
