RE: 4 sec 0-60 in an EcoBoost F150

We had an F150 Ecoboost and I dearly LOVED it! We just decided to get a larger RV, so had to go the F350 diesel dually route. I still miss that truck and it was as comfortable as any vehicle I've ever ridden in, including Mom's Cadillac Deville and my Benz. My DW said the same thing when we had a loaner F150 last Nov. Think tho that had the lil Ecoboost motor.

RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

This guy should have it in the "Do it yourself, modification" section.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch adapters

I think Demco make an adapter plate for puck system so if your current hitch is rail mounted, can use this plate as a go-between thus still keep/use current hitch. We bought a new B&W Patriot when we got new coach in '17. Rail mounted. Then bought a new truck in '18 w/o puck system (off lot purchase). Tho still have old Reese, you can either sell the Husky or IMO get a B&W puck hitch. Yes the B&W's are a heavy hitch, but IMO it's worth it

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

Could the OP contact say the Army of local or nearest Army base to see if their air unit could use some practice w/ heavy lift by using a helicopter and move it for him?? I'm only asking/suggesting as it seems we've all gave pretty much same ideas 'cept this one. Know it's far fetched, but what the heck.

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

So the fence isn't yours. As others have said, why not just ask the owner of it if you can take it down, do what you need to do, and put it back up? Tell owner you'll have a professional company do the fence work. That is unless for course you don't get along w/ the owner and he's being a P pot.If you do end up pulling it backwards, am assuming you have plenty of room to do this? Will take a decent size tractor (at least 60 HP IMO). How are you going to get the legs onto greased boards with them already on the ground? I guess a better question is, how and why did the 5er get parked where it is in the 1st place knowing it would be a beeatch?

RE: Southeast Massachusetts to Nashville TN

There is a CG just east of the Flying J (below I-77 ???). Go past the J, up/over a hill and CG will be down on left side. Nice, cheap, clean. We stayed there on way back from FL as our 1/2 way point in '18.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

I am looking at replacing my hitch and going with the Curt 16536 slider. Anyone have any experience with this hitch. It is a 20k hitch and I only need the 16k. But for a $100 more I can get the 20k in case I later upgrade truck and trailer. Was a pic posted awhile back of a Curt hitch that didn't look too good after a incident if I recall right.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

I have seen/read good/bad about the Anderson hitch. Personally, I'd go w/ the B&W. Reason I say that is we had a Reese 16k and for the most part is a good hitch at the time we used it on a 5er w/ a 1800 pin, max wt of 13,500. When we got the new 5er (pin of 3700 and max wt of 16K), decided to upgrade hitch and went with B&W 18k Patriot. Compared to the Reese, the B&W is MASSIVE along w/ rails. IMO, while the B&W is a much more beefier hitch, I'll take any day over a lighter one.

RE: What happened to all the posts

I agree w/ a lot of the replies/reasons as to why things are the way they are. I've been bashed plenty of times, but have big shoulders. It is a shame that we don't see as many pages like we use to, but in reality, do we really need half dozen pages? Can always use the search box unless info only stays so long in system before it's deleted as well. I have gathered a TON of helpful info from this site and YES it is a PITA on the connectivity side of things and there should be NO reason for it in this day/age. Can go along w/ basic maintenance at times, but all the time????

RE: Acadia NP - rv length

WE stayed at a private CG about 15 miles from Bar Harbor. You pass it an way to BH. Twin Pines(?). No problem with large rigs. The 15 mile drive didn't bother me. There are 2 KOA's after the causeway, scoped them out and wasn't impressed. Another CG near the airport which looked liked it could accommodate large rigs, but all sorts of dust from roads turned us off.

RE: Rodent???

I asked about mice control products on another forum and "Mouse Free" was suggested. Prior to that, we store ours inside at a place that has corn/soybeans inside as well (but they are now strong it outside in high bins) and in the 16 years of being there, problems only had 2-3 times mice got in. Seal up all holes in frame and underbelly. I thought I did, but guess I missed a couple. Inside is a **** shoot on what to use. Because I cannot get to coach while in storage, cannot set out traps to check. So I used a combo of things such as: drier sheets, moth cakes and rodent free smelly things. Like what's been said too, remove all food and hopefully wipe down storage areas of it. If mice do get in, it's a PITA having to wipe everything down w/ a germ killing product.

RE: Ford knox sensor

Stop using the aftermarket fuel additives. You are told why your check engine light comes on. Diesel fuel already is formulated to prevent gelling right out of the pump. Isn't science amazing? Try telling that to folks in areas where temps get down to -30 to -20.

RE: Ford knox sensor

....and by the way, it's a Knock Sensor, not Knox That's what's printed on repair order and it's related to emission system so IMO I really think it's supposed to be nox , but again that's what's written down on paper I was given.
ACZL 10/09/19 08:19am Tow Vehicles
Ford knox sensor

Have other folks had issues w/ Fords Knox sensors? If so, did your dealer tell you why it failed or triggered a engine light? Mine is telling me it's being tripped by using aftermarket fuel additives which I find hard to believe. If that's the case, what are we supposed to do to prevent gelling in winter months?

RE: Tail wagging the dog?

Is your F350 broke? No. It's my B-I-L. Last I knew he had this vehicle. Haven't seen/spoken to him in sometime, but DW still talks to him every so often. She just talked to him the other nite as we noticed a RV at a relative's house and figured it was his (it was) as she was going to ask him to see if he wanted to join us on a trip possibly. Apparently it was just picked up and all winterized and doesn't have much in way of extras, so he declined the invite. So unless he got a different TV---that's what he's towing it with.

Tail wagging the dog?

Just want to get your take on this set up. 35' TT w/max GVW of 7500 being towed by a several year old Tahoe.

RE: Ram overtakes GM

I agree GM will sell tons of them. Likewise, I think the GMC version and diff trim levels of Chevy LOOK far better than the bold Chevrolet. Owning Fords past 16+ years, yes I like them, but also like the looks of the new Rams and GMC's. Nuff to make me switch.....no, but still like the looks of them.

Ram overtakes GM

Am surprised that the Ram guys are not thumping their chests (and rightfully so IMO) on overtaking GM for 2nd place in truck sales. Honestly, I like the front end of them and think this is their best looking one yet. Plus, we as consumers like to see what the mfr's do to outdo each other. But anyways, congrats to the Ram guys.

RE: Trying out a S&B 60 gallon fuel tank

Why can 3 diff mfr's of larger aftermarket replacement tanks be made yet NOTHING of the size/capacity from Ford, GM & Ram? I say that and I have a 48 gallon stock tank on my '17 long bed, yet only 29 (factory) on short bed when a 50+ galloon is made aftermarket.

RE: What Size RV is Right for Full-Timing

IMO, anything from a 38'-44' should work. Heartland warranties their Big County, Big Horn and Landmarks for full time use. We went from a 35' bunkhouse w/ 4 people to a 41' non BH w/ 2 people couple years ago and LOVE it. In doing so, we also had to upgrade to a DRW cuz of weight of new coach so you HAVE to take this into consideration as well. Didn't want to get a new truck/DRW cuz we just bought a 1 ton SRW couple years before the coach thinking we'd be all set for anything. So basically OP, your gonna have to do a lot of research on what floorplan you like and visit dealers lots. If at all possible, go to a RV show and check things out there.
