continentals look interesting.

F150 Tire time

50k miles going into winter, wear bars are a little too close for comfort. Truck came with Michelins, they are adequate. 4x4, snow, highway, rain, and towing. Fav brand and types?

RE: Visa scam

I've received legitimate calls from my bank confirming abnormal large purchases. I've always called back to the published 800 number to confirm.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th ! point of view is that a guy who 'personally' reaped tens to hundreds millions from his sale of PayPal and personally listed as worth north of $23 BILLION says he (yes, grocery/rent/etc money) has a cash flow issue and is illiquid... And his corporations a ditto in cash flow issues and may not be profitable says he shouldn't be running that corporation using other peoples money... He can burn his personal money as that is his own...but...when his corporation has IPO'd and gone through several public bond issues...he is burning other peoples money...albeit fan base who are gambling on his business acumen... I don't disagree with anything you say, but I stand by my comment. His personal liquid position has zero to do with Tesla's current position.

RE: how do you keep sewer tank clear

never use it? liquid laundry detergent and liquid water softner Formaldehyde? Never heard of anybody using that. I've been using happy camper lately, and it seems to work pretty good.

RE: Elkhart IN Show

I'm about an hour away. I was hoping that the cedar creek dealer would have the 38efk to show, they do not. So, I'm going to pass on going down there.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th ! Tusk says low on cash and is illiquid... Irrelevant. His ability to pay for groceries has absolutely zero to do with Tesla's financial state.

RE: Where do you find water

We carry a couple extra 5 gallon "water cooler" bottles. That's our drinking and wash water. Easy enough to haul and carry, and more durable than clear plastic jugs. Many Walmarts and grocery stores now have bottled water refill stations, but you can also refill at a well or spigot without needing a thief attachment. We have (6) 3.5gallon waterbrick "jugs". They stack real nice under the tonneau cover, and are interlinked.

RE: 2019 F-150

A 600 lb TW needs a WDH on a half ton? Need, maybe not... but it does make it a little better towing. I'm a little heavier, but don't have the tow package, and for short drives won't bother with WD, but long drives, absolutely. Drives better, tows better, and is a more comfortable ride.

RE: flooring

I used similar panels to what dutch used in the bedroom. I added a piece of carpet where I store the hitch.

Were they within towing and cargo capacity?

RE: Generator pros and cons

The trick to any generator being reliable is not to store them wet... I always run the tank dry until it kills itself, or use a fuel shutoff valve to the carb. Pure gasoline, or my preferred liquid, AvGas, and you don't worry about it :)

RE: Waze App

I stream the radio to my car, and Waze is forced to use the phone speaker. When I had it streaming to the car, it would mute the stream when it was making a report.

RE: Deceptive traffic citations

My tiny town has a "well marked" speed trap. It's amazing the number of local residents complaining about the speed trap. Speed goes from 45-40 and then sign advising of lower speed ahead, and then the sign going from 40-30, well in advance of the actual speed limit reduction. Police sit on the other side of the railroad tracks right next to the park and write tickets for as long as they feel like it.

RE: New 5th Wheel with 4-camera system

truck will not interact with trailer cameras... It will be looking for the WIRED Ford cameras.

RE: Walmart Overcharge

My favorite story was from mcdonalds My meal was 2.99 (yes, it's an old story) ex wifes meal 1.99 Now, I may be a bit slow and didn't learn common core math, but 3.00 + 2.00 + 6% (maybe 4% at the time) doesn't equal 7.49. Asked her to do it again, and it was like 6.20. Seriously? Went to a different cashier, this time is was like 5.80. Manager comes over and asks what the problem was, and he personally rang it up. 4.58. i gave up

RE: RV Router But I don't think it matters as long as it different from that ahead and behind I would guess that you not seeing the WRT54g because it's in client mode and not broadcasting, which it should be. When you change IP it will kick you out. I would do a ipconfig to make sure it's set for what you think it is, fat fingers can cause a lot of grief. is your gateway, or is it the subnet router address? When I redid the configuration as a bridge, I couldn't see the router and I should have been able to The intention is to have a wired client to a separate wireless router that all the devices will connect to. I'm thinking I'm getting trapped on the subnet issue

RE: backup camera on trailer

Before anybody recommends Tadi Brothers, let me the first to tell you NO, don't buy from them. After I ordered the product a friend recommended I not use them... one of those, I should have asked first. I was lied to about the product and price. Lied to about shipment. Blamed for not returning everything, even tho the box was literally opened up only to put in the return paperwork. I did purchase a camera off amazon from istrong. They claim they will send the furion adapter cable and bracket for free... they never did, but I didn't push it, my time was very limited and paid $10 to get it from someone else.

RE: An error has occurred (Resolved at last)

I just switched back and forth from General and Sports 6 times and got no errors. That is what makes some issues so difficult to replicate; and some times in is the members system and not ours. We aren't making excuses, but that also happens at times. Two different computers, two different providers, 3 different browsers, all failed on the same subforums. Didn't matter if I was logged on or not logged on. But, for me, it was always the same subforms that was an issue.
