RE: 2006 Ford 6.0 Turbo diesel ???

If only it was just keeping the coolant clean...... I had issues with the FICM, alternators that liked to kill batteries and the entire front end and brakes...plus the EGR stuff. And what made it worse was Ford's attitude and the crappy dealership service. Now I'm on my second Ram/Cummins truck.

RE: Supersprings with Airbags

I've got the SS and airbags on my truck. I love the SS on there for just carrying the weight of the camper. I really don't use the airbags unless I'm towing now too.

RE: Truck for Eagle Cap 1165?

I am smiling. You're smiling now because you didn't get the gas bill yet. If you can afford the truck, the fuel bill shouldn't matter....

RE: 2006 Ford 6.0 Turbo diesel ???

We HAD!! a 2005 Ford Excursion with the Diesel 6.0..... that led us to switching to a 2005 Ram 3500 with Cummins and now a 2011 Ram 3500 with Cummins. I'd go back to a 6.0 only if the price was good enough to right away get the motor ''Bulletproofed'' or being able to comfirm that it was already done.

RE: windy towing

Hey guys, I'm scheduled to leave Mason City, Iowa today to drive to Knoxville, Illinois and it is windy. We have an F-350 dually pulling 40 feet of fifth wheel weighing 16000 pounds. The winds are from the NW at 19mph gusting to 28. Tomorrow, the winds are predicted to be 13mph and gusting to 22. The winds would be at our back most of the way. For about 20 miles in Iowa, the winds would be at the back ans drivers side when we are heading straight east. Would you pull my rig today or wait until tomorrow? We'd like to leave because this storm is bringing some cold weather. that's the typical wind on any day driving down the columbia river gorge on I-84. Wouldn't worry a bit. When wind hits 40 then I start to notice it. about 45 is time to find a place to pull off. Beat me to it. I was just going to say the Gorge, that is normal :)

RE: Need to figure out how to haul my toys and my wife.

We had the same issue, two quads and a RZR. Can't afford a diesel pusher so we went Truck Camper and 20' enclosed trailer we already had anyways. The other option is put a custom rack on the back of your pickup for hauling the RZR or quad and then go with a bumper pull Toyhauler for the other toy. Seen several setups that basically put the front tire of the RZR on top of the cab of the truck using long ramp type rack setup.

Diamondback Truck Cover - ATV Hauling

So does anyone have a Diamondback truck Cover? Want to here the good and bad. How is it holding up? Worth it? My concern has been they seem to be rated at 1600# on top. Well two full size Polaris Sportsman quads would be right at this. Also any leaks in heavy rain? For all the ads in the magazine I've yet to see one in person on the West Coast.

RE: Truck Camper Magazine

Even though we have a truck camper. We do Subscribe to Motorhome and Trailer Life. Motorhome never has a TC in it but they do have trip ideas and general camping articles we find useful. Trailer Life does usually have a Truck Camper Review maybe 4 or 5 times a year. Plus trip ideas, vacation spots, and general camping/RVing articles we find it useful. I read the mags and rip out vacation idea articles for future use. Then there is the website Truck Camper magazine and all the online forums.

RE: New Tire help...

I run Goodyear DuraTrac on my dually. I'm at about 40,000 miles on the set and should still be good for this winter. I needed traction tires with the snowflak so I choose these. We camp a lot off of forest service roads so need to be able to deal with a little mud and muck. And a lot of rock, ice and snow.

RE: Electric Heater vs Winterizing

Keizer, OR speaking here. I never ''winterize'' as we use the camper year round. I do keep the water tanks all drained during the winter. I keep the camper hooked up to electric all the time at home. If we are dipping close to freezing I set the furnace at the minimum to keep the fan blowing into the basement. I then have a space heater i set at about 55 only when its freezing at night. We freeze about 45 nights a years. A Cold streak for us is the 20s. This way i just need to add water and we can leave.

RE: Getting camper on lifted truck.

Blocks and he could also air down his tires if you have a compressor handy.

RE: Dodge 3500 steering

I had new only ball joints needed on my 2005 Ram 3500 at about 50K. Had the same issue on our 2005 Ford Excursion too. I think for a bit the big three tried to cheap out on some front end parts in the early 2000s. With the long list I'd certainly go get a second and third opinion and estimate.

RE: Looked at new F450 at our State Fair

Don't quote me on this but I am prett sure the switch from the 19.5 to smaller in the past was because of customer complaints about the truck being governed at 75 mph because of the speed rating of the tire. Some reason i thought it was 87MPG. Anyways my cruise control on my Ram 3500 will not go above 85MPG :( (Utah and ID have 80 zones) This is for not towing or hauling. If I tow I stay under 70 no matter what.

RE: Leaking window under Cab Over

We tried everything and our solution was a solid (non-opening) window. 2011 AF 1150 Closing the vents did not change anything. Driving in the rain just shoots rain at the window like a pressure washer.

RE: How often do you use your portable generator?

I have a Honda 2000 plus the built in propane generator. And I use both. Run the propane one for A/C or the push button start up ease. EI, coffee in the morning. I run the Honda 2000 sometimes in the evenings to charge up everything if boon docking for several days. But really on a local weekend trip don't need either one.

RE: Satphone experiences...

Having fun...? I've had truck campers for more than 40 years... most of them in the boonies. Never needed a cell phone or a sat phone...never been scared of the dark, that the boggie man was going to get me... nothing. Just always went with the idea of self rescue. As you get older you'll find that some of the things you enjoyed make good memories... but aren't realistic... then if your still adventuresome you'll find alternative ways to continue using your campers. Now as a lot of you get a lot older you'll still be mired in camper parking lots with creeps and kids, drunks and druggies piled on top of you... you won't leave... you have already paid for the space... Some of you will take down your flag poles and seperator fences that you have in the campgrounds and make your campers into yard orniments. There are some of our truck camper friends that do some rough country... and they post trip reports showing how remote... but there aren't many. I enjoy their reports. I don't know of any that carry sat phones... most are adept at self rescue I think that California surprised me more than any other state... high tech expectations.. but the tinytouns in the mountains aren't big enough for a cell tower. The interstate system has cell towers all across this land... most of our members will never be out of range. Once again... how much does a sat phone cost ... how many days a year will you be using it... Will you really need one for your blog about your flag pole in a campground? For that matter... do you need PVSolar in a campground? Sleep... but not afraid. How about take a chill pill.... If you never need one why comment on a forum subject regarding it? Specially when you think anyone that disagrees with you is an idiot. Just don't comment and go back to FOX news watching. And just cause I5 and I90 have cell coverage does not need we dont' need it where we are going. The posters and myself want to learn about them.
