RE: Mice in RV living quarters

When it comes down to mice in the RV or adversely affecting wildlife, I go with happy wife equals happy life.

RE: F150 20 inch wheels vs 18 inch

I would special order and get the HDPP package. Actually, that's what I did do, to me, its worth the wait. I rented a cheap car while I waited. Best decision I ever made, got exactly what I wanted and nothing I didn't need. P.S. The HDPP package doesn't include with 20" wheels. For some reason the most towing that you get with HDPP crew cab 4WD is 11,300lbs while a similar truck without HDPP and 20" tires is rated for 12,700lbs. Just in case that matters to you. That is really odd to me for a variety of reasons.I don't know didn't look that up. You get more payload with the HDPP. Basically because you get a beefier frame. I'm more concerned about payload. I'll never get to max trailer before I run out of payload. I could see the two trucks have the same GCWR if they are drivetrain limited but the max GCWR is 18,600lbs without HDPP and drops to 17,100lbs with HDPP. What is in the HDPP that leads Ford to reduce GCWR? That is the real mystery to me.Doesn't seem like a Big mystery to me. 20" wheels mean you can pull more, doesn't mean you can carry more. Like I said, I'll run out of payload long before I hit max trailer.

RE: enough truck ???

If the truck as you described it has the Heavy Duty Payload Package, yes, it will handle that trailer. Without the HDPP, then you really need to know what the yellow sticker says; brochure weights have to many "ifs" in them. Read up on what all the numbers mean. Clicky

RE: Tongue Weight Calculation

Its the weight of the tongue divided by the total weight of the trailer

RE: 50 AMP Tents

Maybe I'm a little dense too. Or maybe 4x4van just needs a nap. Based on 4x4van's comments in other threads, it seems to me that he/she is a little cranky. As far as 50a sites go, I'd be upset if I pulled up to a park and there wasn't any room for me because tenters took all the 50a sites. If all the tent sites were full and they just took what's left, then there wouldn't be anything for me to complain about. But if they took the 50a sites instead of tent sites, then I'd be upset with them and mad at the park. I pull a triple axle fifth wheel and my selection of spaces is limited. While a tenter could camp just about anywhere, I can only park in the long spaces (typically 50a). So if they take the 50a spaces, then I'm probably out of luck. I would never dream of taking their spaces and edging them out when we could easily all have our own spaces where they get theirs and I get mine. That's an "AND", not an "OR", which equates to an "US" and not a "ME".I reserve early, that way I get to pick the best site. When you go to the store and there are 3 pineapples, all the same price, a good one, an ok one, one and a bad one; do you take the bad one and save the good one for the next guy. Me neither

RE: Electric vehicle mandate in California

Now the president wants to repeal the rules used to achieve this goal by going back to less efficient incandescent lights and appliances.Seriously? I knew he was having a problem with his hair and toilets, but incandescent light? That's just prehistoric. Rotary phone legislation coming. MAGA. :).Rotary seems modern. We could put many to work as switchboard operators and reduce connections going back to party lines. Let's not even start with the MAGA Post Office. Pony express anyone?You guys need to start smoking crack, I hear it relieves the symptoms of TDS.

RE: Trailer length and sway

Worry more about tongue weight - both as far as payload of the truck and keeping it close to 12% of actual trailer weight when loaded and ready to go camping.

RE: You can't make me

We will call this a 'Mask' thread. And, be watching it carefully. Please stick with facts; not hear-say. Thank you.Facts according to whom? The known facts are minuscule and subject to a change daily. Real facts won't be known for a very long time.

RE: is there an easier-to-use sewer cap?

So how do you connect and disconnec the sewer hose after you take the cap off? Cause the sewer hose is going to be a lot dirtier then the outside of that cap. Try Soap and water.

Was the Valve for pumping antifreeze into the lines turned and not turned back?

RE: truck/trailer sway

Simple first step. Move some weight from behind the axle to in front of the axle (or eliminate it entirely - such as water in a tank behind the axle), which will increase your tongue weight, and see if that helps.

RE: Being hoodwinked by Store Clerks

So much for innocent until proven guilty. You we no proof the clerk did anything wrong. The card number could have been stolen by any number of people. Did that add anything to your story by blaming someone with zero proof? You got your money back - your whole - move on and stop assuming you know where the guilt lies. Could even have been merely keying in a wrong number.

There is one moderator like that in this site also, just so you know.

RE: Tow weight

Correct, J2807 is based on full fluids, a 150 pound driver, and 10% tongue weight using a flat deck trailer with heavy weights adjusted to give the desired tongue weight. It's not at all representative of what real users tow or how most of us use our vehicles. I've talked to several people in the industry about a more realistic tow test using an average family of 4 with 2 teenagers and a few hundred in the bed and a max frontal area but because it would result on smaller numbers everyone has said it would never fly as marketing would kill it. Honestly I think the test they do, especially the 11 mile Davis dam test is much harder and more demanding than the normal person would pull. Over 3000 feet of elevation over a short 11 mile stretch going a minimum of 40 mph. So for example, if the 2020 Silverado pulled the 9500 lbs through that stretch of elevation and demand without any issues, I would say that pulling 7000 to 7500 lbs would be no issue. And they actually use a 150 lb passenger as well on their runs. But they are not pulling a wall through the air. As has been said, for RVs, tow weight is basically useless as you will not hit that number before running out of payload. Tow weight is fine if you are pulling a flatbed full of lumber. Build a front facing wall from that lumber and the result is totally different.They do test the frontal area, from 12 sft through 60 sft - Read the Standard so you know the facts instead of relying on hearsay.

RE: Coleman Grill

If turning the control knobs don't adjust the flame - then you've found the problem. Call Coleman and see if they are replaceable.
