RE: Truck flooded

The goose is cooked... stick a fork in it. In the floor, in the trans, differential, wheel bearings, u-joints, steering, wiring, etc. Totaled. You’re funny! Mustn’t get out much, eh! All those hard parts get bathed daily in a nice salt brine up north. All winter every winter. I agree there will likely be electrical issues. But your statement proves you know almost nothing about vehicles...... Owner/Operator of Auto Repair Shop with a Master Mechanic Certification before entering the Ministry of Christ. Still do mechanical work and consult with others needing repair work. Live on an island surrounded by Salt Water where many vehicles are flooded ever year by salt water driven by storms. Have traveled the USA, Canada, Mexico. What are your qualifications for distributing mechanical advise? :h

RE: Caution

If Ford can't or won't fix it...will they replace it with one we can agree on and not lose any money. No one but the Ford dealer can answer that question.

RE: too much truck or not enough trailer?

My F350, CC, LB, 4X4, 7.3 Power Stroke Diesel, DWR is my daily ride and grocery shopping vehicle and its a very comfortable ride with its progressive suspension. I prefer it for comfort over my Taurus or Jeep. The OP TT would be no more than a average back seat passenger for the F350. Of course those who have never owned a F350 cannot speak from experience.

RE: F350 where do I jack from? / would this plan work?

One end of the lug wrench has a hub cap puller on my F350. The jack handle and spare tire handle are under the hood and the jack is behind the seat. If the spare tire has a security lock the key may be in the glove box or center console.

The owner manual should have instructions and a Jack should be provided under the hood on top of radiator.

RE: Class A Tire Recommendation

A second opinion is needed, it is unrealistic for a six year old vehicle with 25,000 miles to need kingpins, etc.

RE: .........

I own a 2008 Newmar. What can I help answer? We are contemplating purchasing a new or one or two year old Newmar Dutch Star. We haven't had a lot of time to look into the purchase. Don't see them on Dealer lots. Questions ere how much off msrp are RVers paying? Any comments n quality of upholstery etc. Dependability,service and warranty. I went to a Newmar forum and see few complaints. That is what we want no more two weeks or more waiting on service,expensive service. I cannot answer for the service quality and time due to the recent selling of Newmar to Winnebago. It remains to be seen. It will all depend upon the new arrangement and the quality of dealers. I have no experience with Winnebago other than my friend's Journey. He has a lot of problems with it. I have been very satisfied with my Grand Star Newmar. It is quality built with all solid wood cabinets, quality appliances and furniture. Three slides. Thus far the only thing other than regular maintenance I have had done has been a change of tires, front brake calipers replaced and seal on one slide. I do not use any dealer for service as I do most myself and have a private mechanic to do what I do not wish to do. Instant service. Its a 2008 model. The Dutch Star has a good review. I seen some for sale on RVTrader and other websites. https://www.rvtrader.com/Used-Newmar-Class-A/rvs-for-sale?type=Class%20A%7C198067&make=Newmar%7C8880048&condition=U

RE: Cracker Barrel

I'm surprised at all the bad pub Cracker Barrel is getting. I only ate there once years ago and it was overcrowded and food was just ok. But if you get free overnight parking I think i could eat there again :) Would you continually go back to the same gas station if they gave your bad fuel for free? I am often amazed at what people will put into their bodies and minds by eating bad food or reading ungodly books. Free parking is one thing but to eat bad food just to get the free parking? I have eaten at Cracker Barrel many times and so far the food was ok; sometimes super. I think it depends on the quality of the staff more than the actual food. It takes quality chefs to prepare a fine dish worthy of ones palate and promote good health. Any one can serve a bad meal. I have not had a bad meal at Cracker Barrel. I usually eat at CB 2-3 times a year when in certain areas of the country and meet with a group of folks for dinner in their area. Other times in other areas I meet with different group of folks at different restaurants. Some groups are a dozen or so and some 60 or more, therefore we choose restaurants that not only have food we like and adequate seating but also adequate parking. Locally, wife and I usually eat out 2-4 times a week at a variety of restaurants serving a variety of foods. My habit is I order what I want not necessarily what they bundle on a menu. Bundled meals are for the seller to make max profit; not necessarily healthy, not necessarily what I have a taste for. I usually attend a restaurant that caters to whatever I am interested at the time, if I want fish I go to a reputable fish house, if steak I go to a steak house, if country food I go to a country restaurant, if Greek I go to a Greek restaurant, if Italian I go to a Italian restaurant. It all depends upon what I have a taste for at the time. My MH and tow is 60' and when traveling in it I find many opportunities to park; coast to coast. There are some I pass because of lack of parking. Be careful what you eat. We were with another couple at a restaurant in Yellowstone and was seated and ordered our drinks. The ladies attended the restroom and when then returned they followed a waitress who came out of the stall and did not wash her hands and they told us and we all got up to leave and the manager came over and asked what was wrong. The ladies told her what the waitress did and we left. It is not safe to complain and still eat in the restaurant they may spit in your food while it is being prepared. There is bad food and then there are filthy food preparers.

RE: Welding on a 1999 spartan chassis

I have had good luck majority of time welding on vehicle frames BUT there have been time it blew light bulbs. Do you play the lottery? The safe way and not take the risk of damaging some electronic or electrical devise is to REMOVE the receiver and do any necessary fabrication and then replace the completed project. What is the time saved by not removing it worth?

RE: Camper jack torn off driving

I noticed that the camper is build out of finger jointed wood on that corner. It appears that there were three lags holding the jack from the side and three from the front. A section ow the structural wood is ripped out and needs replaced. I would use wood knives and cleanup the remaining wood and get it smooth and level and shape another piece of wood to replace what is missing. Test fit it while dry. Once it is correct sized and fits without voids go to HD and get their strongest wood glue and dab it all around into the side and then press the piece of wood that has been shaped to fit into place and secure it with a couple deck screws and allow to completely cure. Next I would begin to replace the jack using wood to metal adhesive as well as lag bolt it from the side and the front. Then work the remaining damage to repair the cosmetic appearance.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Some folks are destination people and some are journey folks. There is great joy in crafting a work of art. The process of designing and building sometimes is more satisfying than the end. The end often for a true craftsman is like coming down off the mountain it is not as exciting as the climb. It is the low point compared to the high peak of the mountain. That is the challenge mountain climbers also face. They live to reach the peak of the mountain and not the valleys. There is also joy in using and sharing the finished project. The ones that did not share the journey can not appreciate the reaching the mountain peak as much as those who did the climb. Those lifted to the mountain top via a helicopter will never understand the reward that those who choose to climb share.

RE: Class A Roadside Assistance

I prefer Good Sam Roadside Assistance. I have Platinum + and recommend it for anyone with a large coach. I have had Coach Net in the pass but one gets what they pay for and Good Sam has different options for different needs. My needs require Good Sam Platinum +.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I would think there would be more concern with what the black walnut is treated with than the walnut itself. Some finishes will off gas and are very flammable. I would think it would be a little tough to light up a counter top just from off gassing. Then again, I suppose stranger things have happened. I've used a lot of Lacquer over the years, and fortunately never had a problem, and never want to. Some of the inside will get Lacquer, but it probably won't be all at once. Murphy's Law: "If it can, it will" :B
