RE: Auxiliary fuel tank?

The used F350 I'm looking at is a SWB 2WD and apparently has only the standard 26 gal. fuel tank. Seems a little skimpy to me. How have others coped with this? Or is it even worth worrying about? Thanks. I immediately replaced the 26 with a 50 gallon Titan tank. I don't want bed space taken up with a tank.

RE: What to clean old lap sealant with besides denatured alcohol

Paint thinner does a better job of cleaning and removing old caulking. As a final step before recoating, I do use 91% alcohol. Yes, that paint thinner would be mineral spirits.

RE: NEED HELP MECHANICAL ISSUE (possibly transmission)

If you can physically remove the linkage from the transmission, you should be able to move the gearshift lever, if you can't then the problem is with the linkage. You can test the transmission by moving the part were the linkage was attached. Of course chock the wheels before crawling under.

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

You have to understand that only two tires are slowing the truck and trailer with exhaust braking rather than eight tires with the service brakes. I have considerably more rear tire wear even with my “weak “ 2011 exhaust brake and have no desire to work them harder, but then I have no standing in the bragging rights club.

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

It is amazing that folks need a button to play with to make it real for them. I have towed a medium size travel trailer all over the country preferring roads other than interstates and never overused the service brakes. You don’t need to drag the rear tires to have an acceptable amount of control. If one would just know to use tow/haul and apply the brakes to slow just a bit, the truck will handle it from there.

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

No exhaust brake? I would pass. Nice to see the resident Power Stroke expert chime in. Did I say something wrong? Yes, the 2011 does have some exhaust braking that is sufficient for towing a travel trailer.

RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

Your first hurdle would be running a business on 500+ acres of pastureland will assuredly cause the ranch/farm to lose it's Agricultural exemption for property taxes on that acreage. And most states have a look back provision in their tax codes that would allow them to collect back taxes even if you got away with it for a few years. I have seen private hunting clubs take advantage of that tax system here in PA and nothing was ever done. All depends on who you know.

RE: frsh water tank

Some RVs have a valve to fill the tank, if it is open or leaks, the tank will fill. If the check valve in the water pump leaks, that too will fill the tank. Common problems.

RE: f350, 6.7

Wasn't 2017 the new frame? Chris 2017 was the first year they stuffed the Super Duty drive train under an F150. :(

RE: Mice in my camper

Plan A, go to your local farm supply store and buy a variety of traps and poisons, they should be able to help with suggestions. Plan B, get a cat.

RE: wiring a 30 Amp Power Outlet 30A Circuit Breaker {{UPDATE}}

It really doesn't hurt anything to just plug in your RV without switching off any breakers. Of course the manufacturer put a label right next to the outlet telling you to turn off before connecting. Why would they do that? Maybe they understand that the arcing will damage the contacts, like found in nearly all campgrounds.

RE: Pick up truck remembrance !

RE: When buying a new TT how do you negotiate

That is the current situation in the RV game. I would continue to price shop and forget the warranty. If you have a very major problem, then worry about returning to the selling dealer. With the incredible wait times and poor service, my opinion is that a warranty should be thought of as a sales gimmick.

RE: Pumping out of a water jug

I added a dip hose to a Hydroller and connect it to the city water inlet with a short hose. With the onboard water pump, I can use from the Hydroller or drawn the water and send it to the tank. No pump, wires or switches to buy and play with and it is sanitary because the system is closed except for loosening the cap for venting. In the trailer, I only needed a tee, check valve and clamps to make it work.

RE: WIX oil filter for Onan genny?

Onan now packages Fleetguard oil filters in the familiar Onan green boxes with no attempt to hide the Fleetguard name or part number. I buy Fleetguard filters from a online trucking supply house for a good price.

RE: New Thor subsidiary to use European manufacturing methods

Lynnmor, you are correct, but ISO 9000 protocols demand strict, acccurate procedures not just for the manufacturing process itself, but every activity within the company that involved the products. Design reviews are part of it. One must design not only for function, but for service. This last part is what I see in military designs but sadly lacking in commercial designs. I have had ISO 9000 training and understand it well. In large part the system is just burdensome paperwork to entertain those that are not the hands on producers.

RE: New Thor subsidiary to use European manufacturing methods

As an engineer involved in two transitions to ISO 9001 standard in manufacturing, I consider it a huge leap in the both quality and efficiency. If this company is really interested in these two benefits, I say, "go for it". It matters not what location, work force, or ethnicity is involved. Good solid procedures and inspections protocol make consistent quality products. I totally agree with this statement, because quality control involves multi stage inspections. I disagree, you cannot inspect quality into a product. You design for quality, buy quality materials and assemble with a quality workforce.

RE: Water pressure problem

There is no such thing as a "restrictor" sold as a pressure regulator. Those cheap barrel shaped regulators cannot be tested by checking flow at the end of a garden hose, the flow will vary because of different amounts of restriction in the various fixtures. Just buy a quality regulator.

RE: How much do dealers pay for the RV's they sell

The real question should be: What is a $100,000 RV really worth considering the manufacturer made a profit selling it for $50,000? Since much less that $50,000 in materials and labor was used, is it any wonder these things are of low quality?

RE: Does this hitch actually do weight distribution?

Yes, it does the same thing. You just pry up on the bars rather than toggle the chain up.
