RE: Four Six Volts with 300w of Solar?

Rain on this parade... It is NEVER a good idea to parallel connect any battery set, moreso high current flow sets. A single cell shorts can have an EXPLOSIVE result. Fuses.

RE: 2015/16 F150 owners, who previously owned 09 - 14 F150....

There are several different choices of springs in any given model.

RE: Rear Lockers

Just don't buy one of those cheap options to replace the spiders with a locking kit. Not strong enough for heavy loads plus undesirable behavior on wet roads. Spend enough to get an oem or quality LS if you do this.

RE: I am at my wits end on trying to give meds

Just grind it and put in the food. The dog will eat. No treats and snacks, eating is not optional. The dog is training you.

RE: long dog leashes at campsite

Please look into training. Dogs don't have to chase everything that moves. I hate to walk my dogs past a site with a "chaser" tied out and wondering if the leash will hold them. Dogs can be trained, too often they are training us! :) Your dogwill be safer if it learns to control impulsiveness.

RE: Should I change tires on my Jeep toad?

We towed a JKU with 37's cross country several times. No unusual tire wear and mpg not noticeably changed. Do watch out for front wheel bearings and ball joints, whether towing or not. Large tires = accelerated wear.

RE: Onan install... 5.5 or 6.5

It would help if you post the exact models... According to my manual, the 5.5 and 6.5 have the same engine, but with different gearing. The generator runs at 3600, but the engine runs 2400 for the one and 2800 for the other IIRC. If I were shopping fuel injection would be a bigger differentiator than 1 kW.

RE: Electric brake effectiveness

All of mine would lock up. Including brand new parts I installed myself with zero miles. Check adjustment and for grease contamination. Good luck.

RE: Ford F-150 as a toad?

Anybody towing the new F-150 and have you had any problems with it? Yes, no. Mine is the crew.

RE: My insulation theory, take a look.

There are pourable expanding foams for marine flotation applications.

RE: After oil change tapping noise

I would pull a valve cover myself, to check for sludge. Could be the engine's nasty and the syn broke some loose. How's it typically been driven? Long drives or short hops? Sometimes you can tell just by looking in the oil filler cap or PCV valve.

RE: Any "Get Your Mail" Updates Anyone Knows About???

Think about domicile in a less expensive state if you haven't already considered that.

RE: Spare fuel tanks idea

I see no reason why not. If you really want to be creative, just put a gasoline filler cap onto the propane tanks and fill them. Pump in a little nitrogen and then you can easily dispense the fuel. ;)

RE: Change the oil in the differential?

I do in all my vehicles.

RE: Diesel engines.

Just stick with the manual. Put. Down. Google. Or you'll drive yourself nuts with bogus conflicting advice. Good luck and enjoy the truck. Most people I know get around 150k on injectors.

RE: Long Box vs Short Box and slip hitch for 5th wheel

My all time favorite fifth tow truck was a short bed quad cab with a Superglide. No worries and very maneuverable. Being able to make a u-turn on a city street or two lane country road was nice. And the short truck was great off road and easy to garage.

RE: Remorse?

If it keeps you awake wondering if it's the right decision, then don't do it.

RE: Would you drive in the snow?

I have and I'm sure I will again.
