RE: Generator propane/Natural gas conversion big sale

I see lots of questions... all I can say is I've used my tri-fuel generator for several years and I'm very happy. Including 48 hours on natural gas at my home after a hurricane. It's all about options on what fuel and when :W

RE: F250 6.2 gas Towing heavy with 3.73 rear ??

having this discussion on another forum.. about 3:73 vs. 4:30 rear gears for the Modern Super Duty Gas engines...this is a 6 speed tranny with 5 and 6 being over-drive gears. "But... once operating in a transmission over-drive gear,either 5 or 6, the torque is not magically produce by the 4:30 rear gears...right? example: 3:73 gears, 5th (1st over drive from transmission) engine operating at 2200 rpm = X torque at wheels 4:30 gears, 6th (2nd over drive from transmission) engine operating at 2200 rpm = X torque at wheels. in this case X should be equal? " What say you? The rear end gears are the last torque multiplier so lower gears will give you more mechanical advantage through all the gears. Simple example you need to torque a bolt to 1000 you use a 10 to 1 multiplier so you only have to exert 100 ft lbs to get that torque. If you go to a 5 to 1 multiplier you would need 200 ft lbs to gain the same same torque. Denny I get that, but I think that you are reducing the torque from the engine at the drive shaft with the 2nd over-drive gear, so for the same engine speed (rpm) and the moving speed (MPH) if the over all gearing is the same as in my example, then? I know it is not perfectly even in the Ford with the different rear gear and 5 to 6 gear...but just for discussion.

The cab lights came on my F250 (dealer added them, not ordered by me) only $55 option. I get more respect going down the road at night ;) Take that...light police :B

RE: "New" sine wave inverters

Many times when they design new circuits like this they do it cheaply by not using the common but perhaps more robust technology. Just because it's new doesn't mean it's better. I think another good question is; are the new inverters as good as the old ones. Bingo...proven over "new" !!

RE: F250 6.2 gas Towing heavy with 3.73 rear ??

I guess I have never thought of our 5er as Heavy! I think of a 12,000# GVWR 5er as a mid weight. I think a 20,000# Mobil Suites as HEAVY. Maybe I should have said towing near the max weight rating for the truck. Heavy was in reference to what the truck is rated for.

RE: F250 6.2 gas Towing heavy with 3.73 rear ??

You only weigh 110# :h I think you misinterpreted his posted weights. How? He says the empty truck (no driver) payload sticker says 3253#, then says with him in it and full of fuel, it scales at 3140#. That's 113# difference....unless I'm reading something wrong....? Payload on the sticker includes a standard driver, I weight more than the standard driver and have other things in the truck. Thus, my actual payload is less than the door sticker which includes a standard weight driver and no tools.. etc. Makes sense now?

RE: F250 6.2 gas Towing heavy with 3.73 rear ??

If you had the 4.30s, it would be no problem at all. If 2wd, it would not cost that much to change gearing, if you feel the need. Good luck, Jerry That would be a good plan should I see the need for 4.30s after I get the trailer. Truck is only 2 years old and 20,000 miles, so I'm looking to keep it for a while.

F250 6.2 gas Towing heavy with 3.73 rear ??

Looking at a mid profile 5th wheel: Trailer: -36 ft. -Unloaded 10,000 lbs -GVWR for Trailer 12,255 -Pin weight 1,800 unloaded Truck: -6.2 with 3.73 -12,400 limit for 5th wheel -payload per scale with me and full fuel 3,140 lbs (door jam is 3,253 lbs ) ...I will add timbrens and will be close to max payload (once I load the trailer). ...towing flat land in Louisiana 99% of the time and I'm not looking to drag race......AM I CRAZY ? :@ this should be good for 5 pages :E

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

well... a couple of points you guys missed. 1. It works during heavy rain. 2. I get a station that DirecTV does not broadcast, yet it is on the AM21 guide and can view thru the AM21. 3. I get all the sub-channels of a particular local station, and yes I know i could get this with the TV hooked to the OTA...but it is nice to have it all in one place....if you will.

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

seems like I've used the AM21 during rain fade? Using the AM21 requires a satellite connection during setup so the receiver can download the local channels for wherever you are. I believe that once that list has been loaded it doesn't really matter what happens to the satellite signal. My complaint with the AM21 was that it required a satellite connection in the first place. I don't watch OTA TV unless we're in a place where we can't get satellite so I was forever having to disconnect the AM21 so I could directly connect the antenna to the TV. Another issue with it is that the list of local channels DTV provides through the device are not necessarily all the channels in your area, but you can't add to their list. We have DNS service and hardly ever watch local channels; if we want local news or weather we use the internet. Eventually, I decided the AM21 was a couple of pounds of stuff I could be rid of and I tossed it. good info, I should have also said that use the AM21 at home with my DVR, not in the RV.
