RE: Truck towing capacity

Banjoguy, sent you a private message.

RE: Truck towing capacity

Welcome to the forum! To give you some perspective, I have the same truck, with 4x4. My fifth wheel weighs around 11.5k with a pin of around 2200 pounds. She may have gained a bit, add I haven't weighed her in a couple of years. Safe to say it's more when tanks are full, which isn't often. Truck tows it easily, with very little squat. Assuming your truck is in good shape (you have a monitor to know what's going on in the engine, right?), you should have no problems going anything less than that, as you've indicated. You've even got some cushion if you go heavier.

RE: Emerals Ash Borer

And yet there are still folks, some right here on this forum, who think nothing of, and defend, moving firewood from anywhere to anywhere.

RE: zeb vs UV

^^^^LOL...Then don't use it, folks. Several posts on this thread to the contrary. Guess you didn't see those?

RE: 2006 ford F-350 lariet dually crew cab

No DEF on the 6.0, and not as much emissions modifications as later years. Go to powerstroke.org and do a lot of research before you consider it. At that mileage and vintage I'd be more concerned about the lack of use. These engines don't like to sit. Could cause several problems. I think the price is actually a bit high as well. That one may well be available for a while. That said, if you can get it for less and figure 2-4k for bulletproofing, you could have a good vehicle. Do your homework, or keep looking, imo.

RE: Is this a proper way to hang my flag for the 4th of July?

Don't see anything, so I'd say no. Edit: Whoops. Me, not you. Looks good to me.

RE: Ford F350 crewcab

These engines aren't very fussy, but I would follow the manual, severe service table. Also change all fluids as suggested. As long as your changing the coolant, I would go with ec1 rated. Think the oe was green, which is probably ok too. Wouldn't use the gold. Congratulations! Get ready to have some towing fun!

RE: zeb vs UV

Zep/Red Max Pro looks great after you put it on but reportedly will yellow after a few years and is difficult to remove. Mine didn't, and wasn't. After several years of not doing the refresher coat as suggested, I decided to strip what was left from the front cap and do again. Old stuff came off with the BK Friend, 4 new costs have it looking great again. After stripping the old off, the original cap color was identical to the side with the old Zep (actually Red Max Pro). I was surprised it hadn't yellowed at all. Was actually easier than I had anticipated.

RE: Tires Again

I've been running Carlisle Radial Trail RH for over a year with no problems. Relatively new design that's gotten overwhelmingly favorable reviews, here and on other sites. Do a search. I think Discount Tires label them HD instead of RH. Carlisles are pretty much available anywhere.

RE: Indianapolis to Elkhart Lake Wisconsin...

I've taken the 100 mile 'short cut' for years to miss Chicago. 74 to 39 north to Beloit, 43 thru Milwaukee up to US 57, State 23 over to State 67 north to Elkhart Lake. Much less stressful. I dunno...seems like a loooong ways to go to miss 15 miles of traffic, but that's just me. Good luck with whatever you decide!

RE: Indianapolis to Elkhart Lake Wisconsin...

Don't be overly concerned about the 65 to 80 route. Major improvements with additional lanes made a few years ago. I go through there several times a year and rarely even have to slow down. Beyond the unforeseen accident or construction, traffic moves very well. Time it for midday, then take 80 to 355 (toll) or further west to 39.

RE: Trailer brakes sucks

What's your TV? Integrated braking? What are you expecting? Integrated braking is much smoother than the old brake controllers.

RE: Can we stop....

...but when someone that is new to RVing and probably this message board asks about leveling their camper and someone jokingly suggests get the shovel out without clarifying, the new RVer may take his suggestion as a viable solution. Which was, I think, the op's point. :)
