Agreed. We use the iOverlander App every trip. Saves a ton of money. We usually stay at a state campground once a week, to plug in, dump, shower, reset our gear, etc.

All this time, I figured the Tow/Haul mode would keep the converter locked most of the time.

I will be nice to set up a proper converter locking schedule, and extend...

GpnAZ,
What leaf spring changes did you make to the rear?

Do you have any idea what your front and rear weight is?

Last question: Is your rear axle a semi-float or a full-float design?

The gas tank fills much easier, if you can get the front of the van to be nose down. This can be done if the ground at the station is not level, or you can pull up onto a set of your leveling blocks.

Booster,
Wow, that is a bit ugly!

The only difference from 2012 is the use of Tuff Truck modified (set down) 1618 springs. Honestly, I don't know if TT makes any springs the same as these TTC-1618-Mod or the old TTC-1617's. I think...

I couldn't actually measure the hub directly, as there is a plastic hub-cover. I measured the lug nut and center of the wheel, to estimate the hub temps.

They were within a 1 degree of the tires.

Re: Lift '95 RoadTrek body (Dodge chassis)?

If you are upgrading the front coil springs, it is not likely that you will need airbags in the front.

Re: Lift '95 RoadTrek body (Dodge chassis)?

On our Chevy vans, the front shock absorber is mounted up through the center of the coil spring.
If your dodge van has the front shock mounted outside the spring, there is an airbag that can be used...

Re: Photog's Lifted Suspension 2009 Roadtrek 190V

Booster, That is a nice bit of writing.

I will attempt to measure the spring gaps, and remaining up-travel, to see if the springs might go solid.
