Slide Solenoid

I found that my slides were working intermittently when retracting. I was always able to get them to work by pushing the "out" button, and then the "In" button a couple of times. However, I became reluctant to extend my slides, especially when boondocking in a WM or a rest area, since the possibility of failure seemed imminent. I discovered that the plastic behind one of the terminals on the slide solenoid was slightly deformed by heat. Apparently, a dirty contact was causing a high resistance connection. I removed the nut and cleaned the surfaces with a wire brush, and I've had no issues since. "Wire Brush<" you might ask. Because it works.

I bought an extended warranty for my F-350 when new. I bought a Ford ESP policy online from Lombard Ford for a discounted price. I would be very skeptical of some of these "warranty" companies. Most of the dealers will try to sell a third party policy since they make more on these than the manufacturer's warranty. You would at least have your dealer to argue with about it, but get ready to be fleeced on the price. BTW, the price is negotiable -- be sure to haggle.

RE: Rio grand valley

We winter at Mission West RV in Palmview. There are weekly jams open to the public and a private jam session just for park members. We also have a golf course. I believe that it is $1,000 for five months for first timers.

RE: F250 3.73 to 4.30 axle ratio

The is often tricky to get shimmed and adjusted correctly. With reliability and expense in mind, I think that I would just put up with the 3.73 until time for a new truck. I can't imagine anyone as the next owner would want a 4.3 either. A friend of mine tows a rather large designer with the same set up as yours with few issues. It's no diesel, but it works.

RE: Extended warranty. What are your thoughts

Check out Lombard Ford. They offer genuine Ford coverage (that's the only way to go) for a discounted price.

RE: Loud buzzing when applying brake

I think I can speak for the majority in saying I haven’t been inside the camper when the brakes were applied.

RE: Water Heater Relief Device

Once tripped, they will often leak a bit. My trailer is an outdoor dog, so it’s not a big deal. If you are anal, replace it — and in due time, it too will dribble.

RE: Used 2011 F350 6.7. Do I need to purchase warranty?

Fyi: I purchased a Ford ESP through Lombard Ford online for my then new 16. About $2,000 for the top plan for 8/100,000.

RE: Buying 2019 RAM 3500 DRW - discount expectations?

You should be able to negotiate at least 20% off a 2019 at this point. Remember, that in most states if you own it at the first of the year, you must pay prop tax on it. If you buy it on Jan 2 -- at least in Missouri - you don't pay prop tax on it for that year.

RE: cell phone in Mexico

We have ATT unlimited and have used it in both Canada and Mexico with no surprises. Unlimited call, text, and data.

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

A pair of good quality car dollies under the jacks on a piece of 3/4 plywood might work. I’d prob then use a come along to pivot it around where it is accessible.

RE: About painting a 5th wheel

Friend had his MH painted. About 5K. Much cheaper than trading, though.
