RE: Towing a full profile fifth?

If you are that nervous you can always go out and buy a gps that is setup for Rv's. You input the info of your trailer (height, length, etc.) and it gives you a safe route to take.

RE: Mods for 7.3 Excursion??

So I pulled the camper up to St Augustine and back last weekend, about 250 miles round trip. I definately feel the airbags helped as far as the squat on the truck, of course after I readjusted the WD system. It was certainly lacking a bit in power, even going over interstate overpasses seemed to be a little taxing. I maintained about 65 mph with the overdrive on, unless in town and stop/go. The more I pull this camper, the increased confidence helps and I feel better about it. I still can't believe how much more power it needs than the last one, which was around 6000 lbs I would guess. Pulled that to Key West and back without breaking a sweat... So the edge 15001 I was looking at, the lowest setting appears to be 60 hp/100 lb/ft. Do you all think I'd be ok at that setting, assuming I add the larger trans cooler, and possibly the intercooler and exhaust recommended? Thanks again!I have not heard good things about Edge tuners... I also recommend calling Jody at DpTuner and let him put something together for you. I have a 2001 F350 with 180,000 miles. I bought an F5 chip years ago from DpTuner with 60 hp tow tune, 80hp daily driver, and 120hp race tune .. Not a single problem and it made all the difference in the world!!!! :B

RE: Listening to the diesel hum

I didn't like my 7.3 PSD. Really loud. I sometimes drove a 7.3 for work. After about an hour the clatter hurt my ears. Very annoying. My dad has a 2000 7.3. Great truck but it rides like a dump truck and it's hard to carry on a conversation in it.Come on, stop knocking one of the best and most dependable diesel engines ever made! :B It is quite loud around town but I'm use to it. But on the highway while towing the trailer she just purrs along.. ;)

RE: Oil additive f350. 7.3 2001

I also use Power Service Diesel Kleen Additive. Usually add a little bit every other fill up.. In the Winter I switch to Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement + Centane Boost which prevents fuel gelling..
