RE: Replacing coax?

My cable was connected to a amplifier. When the amp was turned off it went direct. Lots of loss through that switch. I was surprised it even worked. I just disconnected it from the switch and connected it to the input of the sat receiver, then to the switch. 3rd that

RE: What do you carry for a jack?

I have a roll on aluminum 1/4 m00n shaped device and the good tire lifts the bad tire.. I have had a chance to try it out worked great. also cart a 12 ton bottle jack with the screw center. The 12 ton will jack faster then the 20 ton (I do have them as well) and still do the job. At home I have a 5 ton and 10 ton Railroad jack the I am more comfortable with mechanical and nothing to give out.

RE: Flex Seal; As seen on TV, nine months later

Did not work on a plastic water tank for me. Not much will work on the white plastic water tanks,, But plastic welding. I made a welder from one of my dads old big soldering guns by silver soldering a copper plate to the tip and welded up my water tank so far successfully,one year and 120 gallons and holding. the only thing i would do differently next time would be to embed some metal mesh into the plastic and build it up with more polyethelene.

RE: 2013 F150 4X4 EcoBoost w/3.5L & 145" wheelbase

MY boy has that truck with rear air bags and super glide hitch and it pulls his 9k 5th wheel trailer like it is not there only ever issue was the front brakes seem to get hot on really steep grades. pulls better then my 99 dodge diesel with injectors and edge ez. He needs to adjust his brake controller, or check the trailer brakes, if the truck brakes are getting hot. The trailer brakes are supposed to fully stop the trailer by themselves. Lyle Will do that, The Ford has a unbelievable brake/sway controller don't ask how we know. BUT WE WILL GIVE THE TRAILER BRAKES A GOOD CHECK thanks

RE: 2013 F150 4X4 EcoBoost w/3.5L & 145" wheelbase

Just got back form a short 320 mile RT camping trip. I pull a 9000lb 28' 5'er with a 12 Ram 2500 CTD. No way would I want to tow it with a 1/2 ton. My pin is 1800lbs. Not much for 3/4 -1 ton trucks, but a bunch for the average 1/2 ton. Am I overkill? Maybe a little. But towing in Oregon and particularly the Cascade Mtn range, having a 3/4 ton truck makes life easy. I could easily get by with a gasser but only in a 3/4 ton+ truck. Handling and braking are far superior with the big trucks. JMO but the guys that say they tow 8-9000lb 5'ers with a 1/2 ton and feel its great aren't towing in the mtns with steep grades and tight corners. It's one thing to tow that weight with a 1/2 ton over a few rolling hills or on the flats, but put those trucks in a tight situation and the easiness is gone quickly. my boys 1/2 ton ford 2013 ecoboost has 4 wheel discs my Dodge ram diesel 98.5 has only two wheel disc up front 1 ton wheel cyl. in rear with drums.

RE: EFI Reset Location?

I have a 2004 Prairie schooner 5th wheel camper that is 31 feet long. Currently I have no power to the outside outlets to the right of the side door. I have checked fuses and none are blown and all other outlets in the trailer appear to be working. I need to find out where the EFI plug reset is located in the trailer. Any ideas? had the same problem mine was reset with one of the ground fault plugs in the kitchen.

RE: Emergency Brakes

I made that mistake years ago on a pull trailer and everything worked perfect,was leaving for vacation after the grave yard shift and left the pin out and came home and all was good. I think as long as the magnets are in contact with metal they will not get fried from the prolonged energization. The brakes themselves do nothing till the disk forces the energized magnetic puck to pull the pads open I think you are good to go amy have taken some long term life out of the batteries though.
