RE: Crater of Diamonds State Park, arkansas

Better bring old clothes that you don't care about...heh. You can also dig for quartz crystals in AR and will certainly find all you want, near Mt Ida.

RE: 2002 Ford E350 V10 Transmission Fluid

Ford is recommending a transmission flush, is this just a money making scheme for their maintenance shops and is just changing the fluid and filter enough?

RE: New tires for my 16K fifth wheel

Are those tire ST or LT type? If LT then we just installed 4 new Goodrich Commercial LT tires on our TT. They have very good recommendations. Michelins are often highly rated but quite expensive. As to aging out that depends on the tire condition, are they cracked, lots of tread left? You have to make the decision.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

Welcome aboard our flight to Denver today. Accounting has determined Aeroshell Turbine 560 oil is marketing hype and flim flam so today we are operating our Rolls Royce engines on Walmart 10w30... Is that supposed to be funny?

RE: Multiple blowouts in short time

I went to LT tires and got rid of our Marathons ST tires. How often does your truck have a blowout after all and it uses LT tires.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

No more DEF than I use in a year's time the small amount of money for the new and improved "Platinum" DEF is nothing and I will begin using it until proven otherwise. I'd say you have that backwards, I'll begin using when they prove that it works not the other way around. I found plenty of links once I switched to SCR deposits both on Google and YouTube but they were almost all either scientific paers or major industrial users. I worked at a power plant and we bought technical grade DEF by the tank truck load several times a week. It was 50% Urea the highest concentration that you can get that does not freeze at higher temps. That was fed into a building sized SCR and that would build up deposits which were removed by steam cleaning. But that was low purity DEF and the stuff we use is supposed to be higher purity and if it was a problemI would expect to find articles on the diesel truck forums, here, or on the diesel maintenance areas of YouTube but I don't see those. So it does not seem to be a real problem.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

Walmart has DEF for $7, and it is the same stuff as the $13 DEF and probably the same as the $20 material. And so it would be $13 a bottle more not 'a couple of bucks" almost three times the $7 stuff. As PT Barnum supposedly said: "There is a sucker born every minute." And that's when the population was much lower the rate is probably one every few seconds these days. Especially with the stupidification of the schools.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

The legally required MSDS says the contents are water and Urea (31-32%) period no secret stuff which would not have to be detailed but would have to be listed some way. As for synthethic Urea, it's all synthethic I doubt anyone is extracting urea from cow urine for example.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

Huh, interesting but how does this stuff prevent the deposits? No added ingredients the only thing I can think of is that it may be high purity DEF if impurities are causing the deposit. If that were the case I suspect they would brag about their "ULtra Pure DEF" and they do not. Also odd that there isn't a hit on google. OK solved that one search for "SCR deposits" and you'll get a large number of hits. But all of them seem to be theoretical papers in the science/engineering literature. Not a one that I saw from some practical source. One thing is certain, the guy that made that video should not try out for a job as a camera man...heh.

It has to be better, it says Platinum.:) What comes after platinum, Plutonium?

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

Frankly as a retired chemist I'd be more likely to believe this if they explained what miracle additive they are using. Otherwise it sounds like marketing BS. DEF is plain and simple 35% Urea and I don't know what 'deposits they were referring to. Searching google for 'def deposits' gets zero hits. Both have the same water and Urea identifier, and those are the only two ingredients. Exactly, this is a flimflam deception on the ignorant. Don't fall for it.

RE: Wheelbase question

Lots of people pulling fivers with a 6.5 ft bed so I doubt it's a problem. I went with an 8 ft bed for the storage space. It's only 18 inches longer than a 6.5 ft so from that standpoint I really doubt there is a lot of difference. A fifth wheel hitch will just about use all your bed space don't forget.

RE: Water-less RV washing

Amazon Used it on my RV and my Truck works great, and it goes on fast. It cleans and waxes at the same time. I need to apply a new coat to the RV front cap to get rid of the 7000 miles of bugs.

RE: Water pump psi

The rated flow is 1.8 gpm vs the 3 gpm of the Sureflow pump that I have. So water flow will be low, you might have a problem with your shower flow. That sureflow is a diaphram pump too but it has a built in bypass. That pump you have seems to be designed as a sprayer pump It may work try piping it up outside the RV to the regulator and see if it works. If you are on city water do you even need a water pump?

RE: Water pump psi

What is the amperage draw on that 160 psi pump and is it 12V. And can that diaphragm pump deal with a cut off head, meaning it is pumping against a closed valve. Positive displacement pumps can have problems in that case.

RE: We have a toilet issue......

RE: water pump

Its under the kitchen sink in our Arctic Fox. I brought a spare pump along to use to pump water from water carboys into the drinking water tank. Of course the installed pump died one afternoon but I was ready, an easy install I did change the orientation of the pump to make it easier to work on. I had to cut the rubber feet away from the old pump since the screw heads were too corroded to unscrew. I used corrosion resistant screws on the new pump.

RE: 5G cell phones, need to purchase?

4G will not become obsolete in any short period of time. 3G is still used some places right now. 5G range is so short, a mile or two in perfect conditions that it will be kept inside large cities. In a basketball arena they had to install 5G antennas along each long wall because the signal would not reach the other side of the place. I saw that a major magazine tested 5G vs 4G and found 4G superior in actual real life conditions. Right now 5G is future tech and I'm not the least worried about it. Phone companies will add it to future phones and you'll get it eventually.

RE: New to RV/towing. Whats my best option for a towing setup?

Lets see, tow cap 3500# Trailer almost 3000# DRY weight and dry weight is before the OEM adds accessories. Trailer can carry 1200# total 4200# see a problem here? And don't think that you won't load up the trailer. We all say that but we do but stuff makes it's way in there anyway. Most trailers have around 1000+ pounds of stuff in them, clothes, pots, pans, dishes, flatware, blankets, towels, food, drinks, water in tanks (very heavy) the list goes on and on.
