RE: UPDATED Coast on the uphills accelerate on the downhills

Glad you found it. Those cheap radiators are great for price, but not for proper cooling. I'm guessing the cooler was very restrictive if it loooed like an OEM cooler in the tank. I'm sure the fluid will be fine after the 2nd change.

RE: Trailer too long for truck?

I`m waiting for the 4500/5500 guys to show up and say how dangerous it is to tow anything with the puny 3500 dually! LOL a properly equipped 1500 at ???? % of max capacity is just as safe as a 2500/3500 at the same ???? % of max capacity.

RE: 4 down towing vehicles

If it has a N position on the 4WD selector then chances are good it's 4 down towable. But always check the owners manual to verify.

RE: Making Oil

If you are talking gas motors like the eco boost. They run hot and the oil can and will expand appearing over full. This is why it's best tomch ck it in the morning before you start it. This goes for any motor.

RE: Newbie trailer owner, question on water pressure pump

The pump will run till it builds pressure, then it turns off till the pressure drops, such as opening a faucet. I would leave it off till someone is using it.

RE: replacing Brake Pads

14 1/2 years and 412,924K on the odometer and it's never been changed. Kind of makes you wonder just how important it is to flush it. Very important! Bobs a great guy, but I would not recommend not doing it if you are doing brakes. As long as the bleeders aren’t frozen it’s an extra 15 minute job. I just flushed the fluid on my 12 Motor home. Has 40k on it. An engine fails you stop moving, a trans fails you stop moving. Brakes fail you can’t stop moving fast enough!!!!!

RE: Trailer too long for truck?

That trailer will weigh approx. 7500lbs with a tongue weight near 1000lbs (12%). As long as it’s setup properly you should be OK. I towed a similar length TT with a 97 Dodge conv van. The trailer weighed 6500lbs. Your wheel base is longer than mine was.

RE: That’s A Bunch Of Grass!

I’m not a farmer, but that seems awfully high for grass. But I’m guessing those bales get super compressed when rolled!

RE: Waste Tote Recommendations

I have a 10 gallon I bought 15 years ago. I’ve only used it a handful of times, while a 20gallon would be nice I haven’t had a need for it. I make 2 trips for the gray water. 20 gallons would be heavy! BTW, I wouldn’t use it for the black tank. Too much chance for a mess.

RE: Trion V10

The biggest complaints are : • Loud, because it has to use lower gear/higher RPM to climb hills • Not the best fuel economy. I experienced the opposite. I had two of the chevy chassis and then one V10. the chevys seemed to drop to a lower gear quicker and roar whereas the v10 seemed smoother. bumpy Now it's a pickup not MH but I agree compared to other pickups. If it's turning 3000-3500rpm to climb a grade, it's smooth and quiet about it. I agree. My 02 Excursion with the V-10 and 4.30 gears was somewhat loud at WOT. But I also had a K&N cold air intake on it. Now with the class A even sitting on top of the engine I can talk to my wife normally even when climbing a mountain. I do definitely believe the insulation and the way it’s built have a lot to do with it.

RE: Service recommendations near Charlotte NC - Ford V10 misfire

God job and lucky you didn't go up in flames! The lower fuel pressure definitely caused the slight misfire. How many miles? You definitely don't hear to much of those types of fuel lines rupturing.

RE: looking for info

Cape May was nice. We are going to that area of the east coast this summer. MD and DE. Lots of places to stay, but can be pricey.

RE: V6 Silverados

Is it the 4.3 Typhoon/Cyclone V6? No. The new 4.3 is a completely different engine than he old 4.3!

RE: Trion V10

Sounds like a call in show that no one should listen to. The host is uninformed and shouldn't be giving out any help. The V-10 in early years had spark plug spitting issues (fixed in late 03). After that they are the most reliable engine out three. IDE love to know which show so I could call in and let him know how wrong he is!

RE: Another Ford that needs to be bagged - or a dually?

It's lifted! The problem with lifts is that hey also level out the truck. So now when you do use it for real work it looks like it's sagging in the rear. If you want a lift on a truck that tows then you either need to keep the front end a couple inches lower or raise the rear up a couple inches, with proper springs.

RE: Snowmobile trailer tire question

I would go with the Carlisles. Their reliability has improved drastically in the last 10 years. And that 80mph rating let's you know they are built pretty well. I had them on my 32ft TT LR 'E'. Highly recommend the Carlisles!

RE: Leaving breakers in the camper on while away?

No need to turn anything off. I don't even turn off the water when I leave. At a permanent spot you will want the power to run the fridge and keep the battery charged if the power does go out. If you don't need any of that then just turn off tenpower at the pedestal. The cheap charges they put in can overcharge and boil he battery.

RE: Snowmobile trailer tire question

Snowmobile trailers are the worst! They get used in the worst possible environment, and then sit through the summer with the sun beating on them. I would just go with the middle of the road tires and expect to replace them every 4 years due to how it’s used. When I had my sleds I couldn’t believe how many trailers I seen on the side of the road with flat/blow outs. And that is not the weather you want to be changing tires in......-15 at 10:00 at night!
