RE: Didn't Believe about the Chinese Tires

I'm guessing they were original equipment? So 5 yr old tires grenade, don't think it had anything to do with them being Chinese. Just my very humble opinion. I agree. X3. And that, friends, is how legends (urban?) are born and propagated.

RE: Dish Network loses 7 Turner Broadcasting channels

Really doesn't bother me since I rarely watch any of those. I do pay for them though. Wonder if I'll get reimbursed? :)

RE: Fireplace

I've been threatening to install a fireplace for a couple of years, and finally made the purchase. The models with the wooden mantle seem to be less expensive, so planned to take it out of that and install under the tv. Turns out the whole thing is so convenient and sits in a perfect spot, so I'll leave it portable. DW added some family pictures on top of mantle, looks just like home. Travels snugly between the chair and couch when slide is in. Love it!

RE: Repairing a Broken Sheer Pin

I did mine myself, but mine is electric. Not sure if it makes a difference, but mine was a very easy fix. Just spin the shaft until the holes match up and replace the bolt.

RE: ADCO Trailer Cover

I've had good luck with mine as well. Don't have the climate you do, but I think any Adco designed for those conditions should hold up pretty well.

RE: Maiden voyage was a success

Congrats! Nothing like getting out there with a new unit and alleviating a little of the fear! Sorry about the tire, but glad cn helped you out. Happy trails!

RE: 2006 Ford 6.0 Turbo diesel ???

Wow, where to start...yes, the engine had problems, but they've all been identified and can be addressed by aftermarket applications, if necessary. 8k is probably high, but could be up to 5k as a worse case scenario. Good thing is that they are available at good prices due to the reputation. Powerstroke.org has a huge amount of info. Easy thing to look for is whether it has a coolant filter and heavy duty coolant, which is typically red. If it does, previous owner may have addressed some issues already. Next step involves getting ahold of a monitor which will cost a few bucks, so if you're not willing to go there, the rest doesn't matter. It's a toweing beast if you're willing to do some research and learn how to recognize potential problems.

RE: Vinegar or Baking soda

^^^^ I would agree that you shouldn't use full strength bleach on toilets, etc, and I'm not sure why you would want to. As a fresh water tank and system sanitizer, in the recommended amounts, which are fairly minimal, it's effective, safe, inexpensive, and recommended. At least it is in my manual.

RE: Travel Trailer Front Cap Cracking Aluma Lite

Welcome to the forum! Are the cracks deep, to the point where water might get in, or just surface cracks?

RE: Keyboard won't type

When all else fails, or before, try restarting.

RE: Winterizing question with Antifreeze

My only question is did you run each water outlet, hot and cold, until antifreeze came out? That includes the toilet. Remember the outside shower.

RE: Best Alternative to Millenicom

If it were me, I would stay with Verizon. I'm sure the costs will go up vs. Millenicom, but V has recently taken steps to stay competitive with the others, and I don't think you'll find better coverage. See what they offer, then decide.

RE: Where can I buy large tire covers

If they fit the Adcos are fine. I've had a set for at least 6 or 7 years, year round , and they've held up well.

RE: Bully Dog and power chips do they work on gas engines

My understanding is that they will help you gain a few horses, but doesn't do much for mileage, so if that was your goal, you might save your money. Seems like alot of folks who use them don't see much of a difference. To be clear, I've not used one myself, but that's what I read when I was considering one for my v10. Ymmv.

RE: Truck upgrades

I am towing the Montana 3735MK (40 ft 5th wheel). The truck has no mods and the engine is the 6.0. We are just under 60,000 miles. Since that's the case, the most important thing you can do is get a monitor ( Edge Insight, Scangauge II, our even a smartphone app) to allow you to know what's going on under the hood. Then learn what to look for. You might consider a coolant filter and flushing the system of the oem gold coolant and replacing with coolant that is ec1 rated. Since you've got some miles on it, maybe you'll be lucky, but you can still have some of the dreaded 6.0 problems. With a monitor and knowledge you'll be able to tell when/if problems are developing and take the right action to minimize it. Let your truck tell you what you need to do. It knows better than we do. Edit: Here is a recent thread on gauges/monitors. Cheap insurance.

RE: Truck upgrades

What engine and were any mods done to that engine? That's the question...and how many miles do you have on it currently?

RE: one night stops

We do it all the time. Just to be safe, unplug your umbilical cord while plugged into shore power. :? Why? On your Ford. There is no power to or from the trailer if the switch is in the off position. Yup, knew that, Terry, but not sure what truck OP drives. I do it myself out of habit, or maybe ocd! :W

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

DW just did that to me last weekend while I was washing up before leaving. Took me a minute to figure out why the door wouldn't open. She couldn't figure out why I was calling her on the cell phone.

RE: Rodents?

Glue traps seem pretty cruel and sadistic to me. I know the object is to kill them, but that seems torturous. I use snap traps baited with peanut butter, check frequently. I know some believe that actually draws more to the unit, but that hasn't been my experience. Most important is close any small holes in the bottom that might allow access with steel wool.
