RE: 2016 F-250 6.2L

Towing 12,000 lbs total trailer weight with 2400 lbs of that as pin weight with my signature rig. Added Timbrens and it sits level. 9000 miles of happy towing.

RE: 3/4 ton payload vs. towing capacity

this has to be one of the better, straight forward, good advice, threads I have seen in a long time...well except the part about the screaming gas engine...LOL

RE: Tembrens or Air

Looked at these Tibren things and it's nothing more than a larger bump stop??? I don't see the point or reasoning on how this "improves" your ride? I see how it can prevent you from sagging when loaded but now your just riding around on a bump stop and you lost suspension travel every time you hit a pot hole or city t i t t y. I'll look into it more but so far glad I got my truck with the auto level suspension Wrong That explains a whole lot...... of nothing. Can you do a better job than that? yep, it works like a rubber spring, not a hard bump stop. Video Link Better :)

RE: Tembrens or Air

2nd truck that I have put timbrens on. Works for me because I am either driving unloaded or fully loaded. Unloaded they are setup so they don't touch and don't change the ride.

RE: 50 amp, 240 volt hookup without equipment ground

Since we are off and on a tangent - what learjet posted is fool proof. i have one installed on my service box that is marketed by Square D, since that is the brand of my service. google them up and read. If we had a lever to work everything this world would be interesting. :W it is impossible to backfeed with the lock out device. Obviously someone can defeat almost anything, if they screw round with it enough. Thanks, a voice of reason :)

RE: Dexter HD Suspension & EZ-Flex Install (long w/ pictures)

Have some people done this with one side of the trailer still on the ground - wheels weighted- wheels weighted? . See my answer above, I think some are not reading what you are asking.

RE: Dexter HD Suspension & EZ-Flex Install (long w/ pictures)

Dumb question I just thought of. Have some people done this with one side of the trailer still on the ground - wheels weighted? Most of the (great) pics in this thread show both ends being jacked at the same time. I'm full time in a 22'TT and barely have the equipment and blocking to get one side off the ground at a time (going to buy a cheap bottle jack to go with my floor jack, and chop up a couple extra 4x4's tomorrow). I'll answer the question NO don't do it...you must have the weight off both sides of the axle or you will have problems. You'll will have the weight on the wheels on the ground and the axle spring point acting like the fulcrum point once you disconnect the opposite side. I'm talking about disconnect the spring attachments, not greasing.

RE: Refrigerator/freezer drying during storage

I can't believe that there isn't 3/4" of clearance to drop a towel in to the doors. I would believe that you could have something hitting the refer while traveling down the road. ^^^^ yes, this has to be true ^^^^ :)

RE: Refrigerator/freezer drying during storage

it only needs to be open a little...a 1/2 inch would be enough. As long as the seal doesn't touch.

RE: 50 amp, 240 volt hookup without equipment ground

interlock device for your house main panel, easy to install and safe. This is GE's device made for the panel. Turn off what you don't want to feed with generator. IF you google there are devices for just about any main panel. here is my panel http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/lockoutdevice.jpg

RE: 2017 F350 5th wheel preparation package

that is correct info, on the current 2017 super duty you CAN NOT order the factory 5th prep on the 2wd. Its in the order guide. I will not buy one until they change this :)

RE: Ford 6.2 Mileage while towing

with my signature rig Ford 6.2, 3.73 gears and 12,000 lbs FW...I'll get 8 mpg at 65 mph....7 mpg with a good head wind. I can get 9+ mpg if I go 60 mph or less. Kind of hard to do on the interstate and not get run over in 75 mph area. The key with 3.73 gears is using manual on the interstate and in rolling terrain. FYI...just got back from a 900 mile round trip and I have almost 10,000 miles pulling this FW. The next one I will order the 4.30 gear :)

RE: Trucks are too tall for fifth wheel

Wow, interesting thread. I recently purchased an 07 Ram Cummins 2500 4x4 to pull a future 5th wheel. Not only is the truck high stock, but we don't want to go over 12 ft center height to clear our current motor home cover. So, any newer fiver is already at or over the height limit. If I had to raise it to match the truck bed, there is no way I could get one under our cover. Many of the published 5th wheel heights do not include the optional front AC.

RE: Long Term Nissan Titan XD Diesel Update

It's the truck we all love or love to hate. Car and Driver has a Titan XD Diesel that they've been testing since October 2016 and here's an update. It hasn't been all peaches and cream. 2016 Nissan Titan XD Long Term Update Review ouch...

RE: XM Satellite Radio Cutting in and Out

I've Googled this issue and there doesn't seem to be a consensus on the problem or the solution. only in certain areas. But mostly in the more developed areas. Structures will block the XM signal, buildings, bridges, going under an overpass. also, if it switching between ground base, where available, and satellite, it will cut out for a few seconds.

RE: How many days to travel 1,260 miles?

I've done 800 miles in a day a couple of times. That is the limit for me. All 800 was interstate.

RE: Electrical problem with 2014 Heritage Glenn

am I the only one who thinks this should be fixed ASAP, before there is a bigger issue....like a fire. If the female end on the power cord has a melted and overheated, you need a new power cord end and the problem could be on the trailer side at the inlet. I have seen a loose inlet connection heat up and melt the inlet and the power card end. IF this is the case you need an new inlet and power card end. Please get some help and get this fixed.
