RE: F250 3.73 to 4.30 axle ratio

The is often tricky to get shimmed and adjusted correctly. With reliability and expense in mind, I think that I would just put up with the 3.73 until time for a new truck. I can't imagine anyone as the next owner would want a 4.3 either. A friend of mine tows a rather large designer with the same set up as yours with few issues. It's no diesel, but it works.

RE: Extended warranty. What are your thoughts

Check out Lombard Ford. They offer genuine Ford coverage (that's the only way to go) for a discounted price.

RE: Loud buzzing when applying brake

I think I can speak for the majority in saying I haven’t been inside the camper when the brakes were applied.

RE: Water Heater Relief Device

Once tripped, they will often leak a bit. My trailer is an outdoor dog, so it’s not a big deal. If you are anal, replace it — and in due time, it too will dribble.

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

Fyi: I purchased a Ford ESP through Lombard Ford online for my then new 16. About $2,000 for the top plan for 8/100,000.

RE: Buying 2019 RAM 3500 DRW - discount expectations?

You should be able to negotiate at least 20% off a 2019 at this point. Remember, that in most states if you own it at the first of the year, you must pay prop tax on it. If you buy it on Jan 2 -- at least in Missouri - you don't pay prop tax on it for that year.

RE: cell phone in Mexico

We have ATT unlimited and have used it in both Canada and Mexico with no surprises. Unlimited call, text, and data.

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

A pair of good quality car dollies under the jacks on a piece of 3/4 plywood might work. I’d prob then use a come along to pivot it around where it is accessible.

RE: About painting a 5th wheel

Friend had his MH painted. About 5K. Much cheaper than trading, though.

RE: Leaving the RV World for a while

We sold our RV when the kids were too involved in school stuff to want to camp. Then, when they were 13 and 16, we threw a couple of dome tents in the van and took off on a 5,000 mile trip that they will never forget.

RE: Stuck along a fence

Re: Pulling sideways Not something I would relish. My understanding was that it was unable to be moved without damage. Pulling it a few inches sideways would likely cause no damage. I’ll admit it would make me cringe, but so does a root canal.

RE: Stuck along a fence

Pretty sure a tow company would just runs line through the wheels and drag it sideways enough to get it out.

RE: pulling fifth wheel with f250 supercab 6.2L engine

You will be fine. Diesel trucks are great but overkill with that fiver. Avoid the G rated tires, since they may induce a very rough ride on a unit that small.

RE: Let's talk generators - again.

Need to connect you with a guy I met recently. Removing his Onan due to weight and LP consumption. Sounds like you are aware of the issues going in to the very pricey purchase.

RE: Fifth Wheel Height

I haven't been able to get a good measurement on mine, since my head is buried in the sand.

RE: WONDERING,or WANDERING?

There is also a movement to mark and recognize the old Jefferson Highway "Pine to Palm," which goes from Winnepeg to New Orleans. You probably know that 66 is marked in many places in Missouri. I hope that you are able to make your journey, and that you will report back on this forum. We are always interested in a new adventure, since it's all about the journey, not the destination.

RE: Rough Ride

Thanks for all of the replies. I'm going to play with air pressure a bit, and see if I can mitigate some of the issues. Selling/replacing the tires is not a realistic option, since I don't want to throw $700-800 bucks away.

RE: Rough Ride

I agree that the E rated tires would ride better. I was just tired of babying my tires and I actually did have a blowout with the original E tires, although they were past their "use by" date. Everyone seemed to recommend the Sailuns, and I do like having a tough tire, but they may be too tough. I may try running at lower pressure, since they do provide a chart for pressure/weight. The rig can gross around 14,000, and I'm probably approaching that at times when we are loaded for a craft show. Thanks to all for the thoughts.

RE: Rough Ride

I don’t feel any vibration. It pulls sweet. It just bounces everything around. Didn’tnotice that with E rated tires at 80 pounds.
