RE: f250 VS f350

You need to look at the loaded hitch weight of that large horse trailer and then at the payload rating for the trucks. You may well be into dually range to carry that much weight.

RE: Wolf Creek Pass

West Fork is below the pass, not "up top". Agee. It is at the bottom of the pass on the west side. And there are some near the bottom of the pass on the east side. But I don’t remember any higher up. Was on top sightseeing several years ago in late June and was hit by a heavy thunder sleet storm! Got out as the roads were icing over.

RE: push back trying to get Michelin XPS RIB installed

Discount Tire put Ribs on my 5er no problem. Soon will be getting a new set as mine are past due age wise even though lots of tread left.

RE: THIS is why I have an air bag hitch (video)!

My 5th Airborne pin box doesn’t have near the travel of that hitch. But even with it I can see the trailer moving up and down independent of the truck. And removed what little chucking I had. Air bags and shocks under the trailer work great no matter the form.

RE: washer dryer

Pro - DW is happy. No need to consider any cons, if there were any.

RE: Tailgate up or down?

Try turning with the tailgate down. Or Don't. My tailgate would hit the trailer very quickly if I tried to turn with the gate down. Raise the tailgate unless you know for sure it will not hit.

RE: Which one?

The Reese Goosebox is (or at least was) approved by Lippert.

RE: Best route North thru Dallas Fort Worth

There is construction on both 35E and 35W. But I would take 35W thru Ft Worth mid day.

RE: Ford F350

You can’t go wrong with any of them. If you can’t find the GM you want, get the Ford or Ram that has what you want. Reliability, capability, features differences between the three is nil. GM dealer mad me mad 30 years ago and I bought a Ford. That’s all I have owned since and never regretted it a day.

RE: How can my mother get into our motorhome?

There are a number of options. Here is one. Google results for others.

RE: Two Monitors on One Shunt?

If you had a very accurate measuring instrument down to several decimal points you could detect a slight difference simply due to the fact of paralleling another resistance. But that difference would be so small as to be inconsequential.

RE: Park Sewer Connection Unusual

Those are normally used for cleanouts to run snakes thru to clear blockages. Is there not a "normal" one hidden nearby? Under rocks or in the grass? Behind the power pedestal? If it is not threaded, about the only thing you can do is use a donut with the sewer hose 90 degree fitting turned to the side and a hefty rock to hold it tight enough to not drip, too much, as noted above.

RE: Sequence to use to clean up "black water tank",please.

Do you have a built in black tank flush? A hose connection port labeled “Black Tank Flush”?

RE: Jacking to change a tire or service brakes or bearings?

Sorry but I place the jack directly I n the axle and lift! .......! Have put my bottle jack on the axle between the U bolts numerous times over 10 years to lift a wheel just barely off the ground. No problem at all to the axles.

The really odd thing is that while some on here get that, there are many of us who have never seen it on RV.net. :h

RE: Texas Route

You could also stay on 281 to Johnson City and then 290 over to 16 in Fredericksburg. That s all very good highway.

RE: Decals peeling

When my decals started curling on the edges I carefully trimmed all those edges away. No good. They soon started curling again. Only solution was to replace them.

RE: Benefits of a Bedroom AC Unit?

The bedroom A/C is great after a long travel day in 100+ temps to cool the whole rig before bedtime. We always turn off the bedroom unit at night running only the living room unit and a small oscillating fan in the bedroom.

RE: Dish network question

Is chat quicker/ easier than the phone call? Yes... I keep a set of pre-written text scripts on file for parks we frequently return to, along with a "Fill in the blanks" script for new locations. Having almost everything written out ahead of time saves both time and errors. And as ChinDog said, how often you change locations doesn't matter. I've even changed our location twice in the same day with no problem. I have always called. And that has never been a problem. But I am curious as to exactly what information you include when you initiate a chat to expedite the process.

RE: These unreliable new diesel engines!

2012 F350 6.7 PSD Only 56,000 miles $ spent other than routine maintenance = zero Unless you want to consider replacing the 6 yr old batteries a problem.
