    FMTV in California?

    They will consider it as commercial, like most pick up trucks are considered now. But, you won't pay a lot like a commercial vehicle cause it is not used that way and you can still drive it with class C. For instance... A Tacoma is registered as a commercial vehicle because of weight (6000lbs)...

    Slow vehicle safety

    I know what you mean When I recovered my M109, heading from Barstow to Los Angeles, some idiot had me test my brakes. He was trying to exit out the freeway, in a very late manner. So, I had to honk and brake at the same time. He got lucky!

    Man, Thoughts and Prayers! You could see what happened by looking at the semi truck driver side windshield. Now, I'm thinking 2" X 1/8 thick tubing roll gage in/out of cab.

    M109a3 Shore Power Cord ?

    Just wanted to show the extra Meltric receptacle and plug I got. It dissassembles with ease. So I took out a spring loaded pin and added it to the first recepticle and plug. Now it has 2 positives, negative, and a neutral. I'm planning on isolating the ground cause I've heard of rv horror...

    M109a3 Shore Power Cord ?

    Well, I found out that my Meltric Plug and receptacle has extra slots for more phase pins. So, since I need to have two positives, a ground, and a neutral, I'll buy another Meltric DSR, 50amp plug and recepticle, and take out a phase plug to add to my other combo. I'm only doing that cause the...

    M109a3 Shore Power Cord ?

    Sure does, I tested those using a thick wire. My 110v lights work too, but dim cause it's only 24volts.It does have the two pin receptacle. And, yes, I am looking to run the lights while not connected to an rv outlet. I just removed the four pin receptacle to upgrade, plus, I can't find the...

    M109a3 Shore Power Cord ?

    I checked all connections Ok, the 4 prong on my m109 only has 3 wires to it that connect to the cab. My electrical panel is only capable of 250v max, which is all I need. At most RV parks, they have 220V outlets for RVs with a lot of equipment. I will be able to install a 220v cooktop that I...

    upgrading the ldt

    Yeah, i think this thread was for ideas that no one has tried. Disc brakes are just easier to maintain. By the way, your avatar is great!

    upgrading the ldt

    The best way is to get the rears off a crashed semi that either way come with better brakes, air bags, better ratios and nice aluminum rims with 10 lug pattern. check out for a truck. that's the way I'll be going. Sooner or later more semi's with disc brakes will be on the...
