RE: Trip Report: Rocky Mountain High in CO and WY

We have driven that stretch of road thru the Snowy Range many times. It never gets old.

RE: Trip Report: Rocky Mountain High in CO and WY

Thanks for the great photos. Looks like y'all had a lot of fun. I love that part of Colorado. We have a trip planned to the Silverton area next summer. Brad

RE: Torklift Stuff for 2017 Ford SDs

Anyone who loads their truck like they dumped those blocks into that ford should have a damaged truck bed. It ain't a dump truck.

... And I got my Jack Daniels Ole Number 7 whiskey..... I'm only about an hour away from Lynchburg. It was still a dry county last time I was up there.

RE: Torklift Stuff for 2017 Ford SDs

I'm thinking we will order it in Dec and it should get here in Feb.

RE: DRW vs SRW Trucks

Get the DUALLY if you want to haul a BIG camper! :B What he said. Night and day difference between an SRW and a DRW hauling a heavy high CG load like a truck camper. We hauled our 9' 10" Lance 10 years on an srw and then another 10 years on a drw. No comparison between the two. Brad

Torklift Stuff for 2017 Ford SDs

I contacted Torklift about when they would have tiedowns and receiver hitches for the new 2017 Ford SuperDuties with the aluminum beds and the redesigned boxed chassis. They said it should be about 2 months after the trucks started showing up at the dealers. So I'm guessing sometime around October. Brad

RE: 2017 F350 DRW - Anyone Ordered One?

xlt, crew cab, 4x4, manual t/c shifter, aux switches, off-road pkg, camper pkg, rear camera, 40/40 seats, 4.30 gears, probably some others I can't remember ... and not a bunch of other options I don't want.

RE: 2017 F350 DRW - Anyone Ordered One?

They are still making great deals on the '16s from what I can tell. Sure, you'll get some additional functionality that you might not want, but it may still come out cheaper than a '17. I wish I could find a 2016 set up like I want. There are so many options on those trucks, I've NEVER been able to buy one off the lot.

RE: 2017 F350 DRW - Anyone Ordered One?

Hey Boatycall! I still visit this forum occasionally. Wayne and the forum members are doing a great job keeping it going and providing a great source of TC info. I read your 450 thread a while back. I don't want to put that much money into a new truck. Below are some very rough MSRPs for 4x4 PSD XLT Ford trucks spec'ed out like we need: $42k 2006 F-350 DRW (current truck) $51k 2016 F-350 DRW $61k 2017 F-350 DRW $75k to $80k? 2017 F-450 DRW I wish I had got up off on my butt and ordered a 2016 last Fall. But I waited around too long and missed the 2016 order window. I've never liked getting the first model year, but that looks like what will happen. That 450 looks nice, but more than I want to spend. We are getting close to retiring and this will likely be our last TC and TC hauling truck. We will be doing some semi-full timing.

2017 F350 DRW - Anyone Ordered One?

We plan on ordering a 2017 f350 drw to haul our current lance or maybe a new 1062 lance. Just wondered if anyone has ordered one. I understand they are taking orders and production begins 11 July. I'm wonder what the tie-down situation will be with an aluminum bed and a new chassis.

RE: 2017 F350

Yep. Frame and the aluminum parts I would rather not have. :)

RE: 2017 F350

Hey, thanks for that link. Lots of good 2017 info over there. We had planned on order a 2016, but I ******* around too long and missed the cutoff date. We plan on ordering a 2017, but I have always been a little gun shy of new models. I guess we will get our order in sometime in the Fall.

RE: 2017 F350

The production start July 11 2017 in Kentucky. Is Ford taking orders for 2017 F-350 DRWs yet? If so, does anyone have one on order?

RE: Atwood TC Jack Rating - 3,900 lbs

http://www.americanrvcompany.com/Atwood-80417-Ball-Screw-Jack-Heavy-Duty-Remote-Control OK, looks like the 5,000 lb version are wireless.

RE: Atwood TC Jack Rating - 3,900 lbs

SCREW SYSTEM PER JACK Acme 2,250 lbs. 1,250 lbs. Ball 3,900 lbs. 2,200 lbs. Heavy Duty Ball 5,000 lbs. 2,800 lbs. Seems like all I find are the 3,900 Ball Jacks. I'm guessing that is what came on my camper back in 1996. I haven't seen the 5,000 HD Ball Jacks for sell. I assume those are what's going on the new heavy campers.

Atwood TC Jack Rating - 3,900 lbs

If we keep our Lance camper, I would like to replace the old Atwood jacks with new Atwood jacks. But all I can find have a 3,900 lb rating for a set of 4. http://tweetys.com/atwood-80488-electric-switched-ball-screw-jacks-in-polar-white---set-of-4.aspx What Atwood jacks are going on campers that weigh more than 3,900 lbs? Thanks, Brad

RE: Atwood Jacks vs Rieco titan jacks

I have a 98 Lance legend and the Atwood jacks are acting up. Would I better off to rebuild them or buy new? If I replace them is there any reason to replace them with Rieco Titan? Any comments? We have a 96 Lance Legend 500 with Atwood jacks. I too am considering replacing them. They still work, but they are pretty old and the manual crank shafts are very rusted.

RE: Lance Squire 5000

Brad - which converter/charger do you recommend? mine looks to be the original magnatek. If I was doing it now, I would probably go with this: http://www.progressivedyn.com/pd4600_converter_replacement.html
