My recommendation for 30 amp is the Progressive Industries EMS-HW30C and for 50 amp is the Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C, but I prefer built in. They are also available in plug in varieties that you plug into the pedestal then plug your RV into them. I have been using mine since 2007.,h_685,al_c,q_85,usm_0.66_1.00_0.01,enc_auto/439d5a_1c6839e4198b422a8da2e2476dc9a0fb~mv2_d_2500_2070_s_2.jpg width=320,h_685,al_c,q_85,usm_0.66_1.00_0.01,enc_auto/439d5a_af0cc20209a64da989035a6b9bdffe64~mv2_d_2500_2070_s_2.jpg width=320 A BIG X2!

RE: stairs

To each there own. Ours has the fold out steps and both DW and I love them. Much more stable than the fold out kind. I am never so rushed I can't spend a few minutes adjusting the steps or cleaning them off when packing up. If you don't like 'em don't get 'em. Only problem is you can not get them. It seems that all the manufacturers have drank the kool aid regarding these steps. In our case, when the 5th wheel is home we don't have the room to use them.

RE: class A safety

Blaming Ford is the same as blaming the lumberyard because your house isn't properly built. As been said, get the rig weighed, and aligned by a competent alignment shop. i get what your saying BUT ford built the chassis with out adding anything to prevent the issue the f53s are having, how many times i have read that a rear track bar had to be added to correct the issue , and on many coaches , not just mine or a few , ford does as little as possible , i stated that im a retired bmw tech not bragging but i do know cars , when a vehicle is fine up to a certain speed and anything over it it becomes a wild stallion, and its not a drive train issue, a vibration and or tire issue, nor an alignment issue , after the addition of the rear track bar, its smooth as silk ,why is that ,,,,,,,, and the coach has low miles, what i dont get is basically every motorhome has the same configuration size wise , how som coaches dont et it and some get it bad is beyond me i personally think that the person who owned my motorhome before we did , experienced the issue , and opted to get a 5th wheel , for it was hardly used in the time they had it Ford has no idea how the weight is going to be distributed. Ford provides two frame rails with suspension and axles designed to hold X number of pounds. Ford builds and sells an incomplete vehicle. Being a BMW tech you must have an idea how critical weight distribution is to handling. If Winnebago or whoever builds a coach on top of those frame rails with to much or to little front axle weight or poor side to side weight distribution how is that Ford or any chassis manufacturer's responsibility? In short, Ultimately it is the final builder / assembler's responsibility to ensure the final product is properly balanced. Why doesn't Ford install a rear track bar? Because the RV world isn't willing to pay for it, because every Class A doesn't need it. You should be asking why Winnebago didn't install a rear track bar. Why didn't Winnebago make the body more aerodynamically stable, as that is the one factor that will change enough due to speed to make a vehicle "a wild stallion", so perhaps from one speed to another something changes, either air trapped underneath or turbulence and that is what's causing all the instability.

RE: 2006 Weekend Warrior Billet,FD-402, 23’ toy hauler

Having had one and worked for a Warrior dealer back then, I have some experience. Warriors are notorious for being heavy for their size, but that's why your 2006 is still around. Walls and floor covering was extra heavy. The only warning I have is if your trailer is the lightweight model (small propane tanks, frame has stamped holes in it) be careful, as the tongues were prone to bending / breaking. IIRR you probably have 75 (maybe 100) Ga fresh water, with 45 Ga Blk and Grey tanks.

RE: In bed fuel transfer tank question

40 Ga Aluminum in bed tank, probably 20K miles with zero issues, just install it as the manufacturer tells you (isolate aluminum from steel, allow the tank to move independently from the truck bed). I use a small fuel pump & nozzle to transfer the fuel, as I am to paranoid of warranty issues to alter factory tank neck.

RE: Lake Mead should show some increase in level.

Yes, the 5"+ that fell in SF just went to the ocean, as did lots of what fell in Sacramento (most storm drains go right to the river). Some did soak into the ground. But the good news is the Sierras got a good amount of snow.

RE: renting out your RV? Success stories? Issues?

Having worked for one of the RV rental companies as well as truck rentals, be aware of the following: Charge a big cleaning deposit, and be prepared for people to return units filthy to a degree you never thought possible. Think crime scene. There will be damage, develop a relationship with a body shop / RV repair shop or develop some skills. Be prepared to "write off" these vehicles after 1-5 seasons, if you keep them rented out the wear accelerates tremendously. Be prepared to go get one from time to time. Renters get sick / injured / have family fights and may abandon a vehicle. As been mentioned, insurance is very critical & develop a thick skin.

RE: Water pressure regulator

Several parks we have stayed at tell you right away- you better have a pressure regulator. As been said, the non gauge models (cheap ones) tend to restrict flow, that's why I went with an adjustable one with the gauge. Flows much better. I have had the same one for 2 years and it hasn't been stolen yet.

RE: Comical EV article

While I am not anti EV, people (greenies & govt.) need to understand they are not for everyone and work in every situation. I read a similar story where the writer traveled from New Orleans to Chicago. They spent more time charging than they did sleeping.

RE: Want a new truck?

Stopped in the local friendly Ford dealer this morning, they had a 22 F 250 loaded up XLT CC, 6 1/2' bed,7.3 gas up on the ramps near the highway. Could of drove it home for $8K over sticker lol. The sales manager told me Ford has stopped building Super Dutys, if you order today the earliest one can expect it is May 2023......maybe, and said expect msrp to go up across the board $4K by then. They had a shiny silver F-150 lightning waiting to be delivered, it went for $25K above sticker. They just furloughed 6 sales people. People are out of their minds. Wow sign me up, "only" $8K? The local Ford dealer is asking $ 10K, over MSRP, with one truck $15K over. I have a real issue with these dealers gouging people, as some buyers don't have a choice, perhaps their existing vehicle was totaled or stolen. But then if some idiot wants to be the first to have a new Lighting and is willing to pay than much, it makes it easier for me to buy less than MSRP.

RE: Traveling via B&B/hotel vs RV

We recently had to attend an event where we had to stay in a hotel. While the room was nice, we found having to eat at a restaurant to be expensive and a hassle. I found unhooking and setting up was less work than schlepping baggage up to and down from the room. As far as cost, food would be a big cost savings for us since we rarely eat out when we have our RV. Higher lodging cost is offset by additional fuel cost. Biggest issue was we also missed our own bed, pillows and bath. While I understand RV travel brings its own challenges for us I don't see a move to hotel /B&B for us.

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

I also went with the RDS, mainly because I wanted a low profile tool box - fuel tank to fit under my tonneau cover. Holds about 40 Ga.

RE: Goodbye China Bombs, Hello Made In The USA

I have had nothing but bad experiences with Chinese tires. The one "failure" I had since I switched to Goodyears was due to a valve stem popping out. Lesson learned, I replaced all valve stems with metal screw in type. Zero issues since then.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I think most of the younger set have moved to FB because they are there anyway. Also as been mentioned the lack of detail and quick answers suit their short attention spans. Even if the answer is wrong or more info follows. One of many reasons I find FB a waste of time as you can't actually "follow" a thread to see what the final outcome was.

RE: Ford 350 mile per gallon

My '17 F250 6.7 averaged 9 MPG over 8K miles towing 67 MPH. 14 MPG With a tailwind, 7 MPG With a big tailwind. My '20 F350 6.7 Delivered 10.5 over the same route.

RE: Trailer Brakes Disconnected message

This is a combination problem. Both the truck being overly sensitive and the trailer being wired poorly. As been mentioned, the early controllers were overly sensitive. Even now they are not very tolerant of the lousy wiring the RV industry use. Specifically those scotch lock connectors and tiny gauge wiring. And let's not forget the known issue of the wiring wearing thru the insulation inside the axles creating all sorts of intermittent faults. Once all the poor wiring is corrected, then you can start looking at the truck.
