RE: Towing with a Van

I would like to see a max tow package in the Ford Transit...give it about 10,000 lbs towing and a GCVWR around 18k..should do great with that EcoBoost. Thanks! JeremiahIsn't the Ford Transit a uni-body? Yep...it's pleanty strong enough. I think you can option the Passenger Transit wagon with close to 3000 lbs of payload. More than enough for a 1300 lbs of tongue weight and four or five people. The EB will have no issue with the trailer weight. They simply need to give a lower gear and ensure a Cooling system that can handle the weight. It would be a great tow vehicle. I tow with a Unibody on a weekly basis and am looking for a 17ft Boston Whaler Montauk to go in my stable. I will tow it with my unibody as well. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Suburban SW6P Water Heater Gas Valve Issue

You have to twist the knob a little past on to get the burner to light. There is a line next to the word ON... Twist the knob past on until the line lines up with the indicator. Not sure if that will fix the problem, but it got mine going. I hope this helps. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Towing with a Van

It's 92 inches long and 47 inches wide. My Express is 53" between the wheel wells. A golf cart would fit with all of the rear seats pulled out. You would be able to fit a golf cart behind the first row bench in a long wheelbase GM van allowing five passengers. Excellent, thank you very much for the info! Opens up some options for me. I am not really looking to upgrade from the PUP but I do want to bring along my golf cart and the bicycles. May be looking for a 5.4 E350 or a 3500 6.0 Express! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: If a tire blows.....

Find the date code on the tires and if they are over 6 years old, buy new tires. Where do I find that? the number on the tire is ST 205 75 R15 I dont know what any of this means. There is a code on your tires... it is 4 numbers. See if you can find it. It is not the tire size. See if you can find it. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Towing with a Van

I don't think a golf cart would fit through the wheal wells... Easy to measure though. If you need me to I can measure the distance between the wheal wells and you can measure the golf cart. ;) Thanks! It's 92 inches long and 47 inches wide. Appreciate that! Jeremiah

RE: If a tire blows.....

You can restore the old tires...by replacing them... I am serious about this... Dry rotted tires are dangerous on any vehicle...not just a TT... You may make it on the old tires...but do you really want to take the chance? JMHO based on experience. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Towing with a Van

Anyone know if you can get a golf cart in the back of a full size extended van? Of course with the top off. I much prefer a Fullsize passenger van to a truck...IMHO...I like driving them. All the gear is stowed away and kept dry. Drove a 5.4 E350 over 1000 miles on a trip year before last and got 16 mpg at 70....of course, not towing. Thanks!

RE: wear on WDH chains

first things first, How tight is the bottom half link with threads on it that attaches the chains to the torsion bars? There should only be 1-2 threads showing past the lock nuts. I did always grease the contact point on the snap up chains, but thats all I did. Thanks! Jeremiah

Curt Q20 Jaws Operation

I'm visiting my Mom and Dad this weekend and I created a video of my Dads Curt Q20 Jaws operation. This hitch has about 20k miles on it pulling a 14k fiver. Video Petty interesting design. The jaw on the right side of the video is "fixed" and only opens and closes. The term fixed seems to refer to the vertical position. The jaw on the left has a cam that lifts and opens the jaws when the hitch handle is opened. I have mentioned that the pivot point on these jaws is somewhat behind the jaws compared to the Reese. While this is still true... there is NO WAY for the jaws to be forced open when they are locked shut. If the handle is locked then the jaws are locked. Rough Measurement of the jaws are 1/2 inch thick... 20k miles at 14k lb fiver and there is very little wear on the jaws other than some surface rust. Hope this helps someone who is trying to understand how these things work. While I can't speak for the slide bar Curt, the dual jaw Curt is NOT junk.. this is a very solid and heavy hitch. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Reese Universal Base Rails - Questions on installation

The sheet metal on the bed floor also carries weight and transfers weight down through the hat channels under the bed. The Andersen Ultimate gooseneck version and the B&W companion do the same thing. They transfer weight through the bed to the frame. 4 bolts with the brackets is enough to tie the rails to the frame... The bed of the truck transfers some of the weight down. That's why there are spacers to keep the bed corrugations from being crushed. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Ram 1500 V-6

Well I guess you won't be passing any EB, but you just might get a chance to go around an ED. Your truck will be fine at anything up to the max capacity and probably beyond. Nice little engine. Bet it would be fun to let her scream up the hills. They actually like to scream... I pulled monteagle Mountain with my Pentastar minivan and 2700 lbs of Pop up at about 3,000 RPM at 50 MPH... That Pentastar is a great engine and will have no problem with the weight you are talking about. My pentastar is coupled to a 6 speed and does great. It would have no problem pulling 5,000 lbs plus. Been talking to the DW about buying a pentastar Laramie ram with 3.55..should have close to 1500 lbs of payload and 7,000 lbs tow rating. Should tow a light weight Apex TT without a problem. Thanks!

RE: Lost my Doohickey Bar, HELP!!

My lift bar is useless for my chain hangers! Snap over brackets didn't work for me...so had to go bolt on! http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj109/jerem0621/hitch%20stuff/2F7A661D-07F0-4657-B992-016EC9311ADC_zpsvep1sy37.jpg width=440 Trust me, no lift bar is needed if you crank the tongue Jack high enough :) I am glad you got a new one though! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Adding a transmission cooler

My minivan has a MASSIVE transmission cooler... That's what she said. Mine doesn't have one. O_o I am thinking about adding, or at least a sensor, but having trouble finding info suitable for the non-car-non-guy by just googling the model. It seems there IS a sensor for trans temp, I guess it must go into some control module. And maybe I tap into that, or add a new sensor... I guess I will just ask a mechanic, but that seems like a cop out :). What kind of minivan and year?

RE: Adding a transmission cooler

Nothing you do will ever change the capacity of the vehicle from the factory. Those ratings are fixed. No brochure or piece of paper will change if you add a transmission cooler. However, modifying the vehicle does increase the vehicles capability. Factory capacity and vehicle capability Are two different things ;) How about filling us in on some more details? My minivan has a MASSIVE transmission cooler... like 4 x the size of the cooler on my F150 rated to tow 8,000 lbs. So you may not need a transmission cooler. Thanks! Jeremiah
