RE: Towing with full fresh water tank?

?? I don't know about the rest of you, but I only put enough water for flushing and washing hands! And I have never even thought about dropping the tank. Adding an additional 600 to 800 pounds to haul water, that I can get at my destination is to me absurd! I would rather haul something important, like Beer? "Absurd"....I don't think so, I've gotten to my campsite and had no water before...campground issue. I've also been stuck on the interstate for hours. I like at least 1/2 tank for comfort :)

RE: Failed Inspection

My questions are, could this be due to the brake controller in the truck not supplying the same power to each brake? If I were to adjust the brake controller could this fix the balancing problem or could the problem actually be in the electric drum brakes themselves? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. --Jerry No, the brake controller supplies the same power to all of the trailer brakes. 1. Take hubs off and inspect brakes and repack bearings 2. Adjust brakes 3. Check wiring and all connections under trailer

RE: Disc Brakes

I'm ready to tackle this job myself, I have never liked the brakes on my new trailer since day one. Yes, I have adjusted them with no change. What I would love to see, is more pictures of how the lines are run down the length of the trailer and to the individual brakes. I've been looking at many kits over the last months.

RE: B&W Customer Service

Best move I ever made was to dump my sloppy Curt Q16 and get the B&W.

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

The 5.0L with Ecoboost will provide a significant boost in torque and HP compared to the 6.2L. I would love to have one in an F250 to replace my V10. It will be interesting to see if Ford will put a V8 Ecobooet in the SD series. It would be good low cost competition for the diesel for those who do not need the torque of the modern diesels. yep...give me that with a big gas tank. I can buy lots of reg. gas :)

RE: Mor Ryde Pin Box Question

For me, The MorRyde placed the pin in the same spot. Depends on the pinbox you are replacing.

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

Why the EcoBoost, from my reading, has an engine oil squirt to the bottom of the pistons to aid in rejecting heat from the pistons The Ford 6.2 has oil cooling for the piston also. Just like the EcoBoost.

RE: Frame Failure

In the first picture you can see the doubler on the side of the frame starting right before the white skirt brace.

RE: Frame Failure

My 2015 Wildcat 317RL build date 11/2014 on a BAL frame does NOT have the square tube spacers between the frame and axle hangers. Also, I have a frame doubler in the area of the axles. pics: http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2591_zpsnsgghps9.jpg http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l159/Learjetpilot/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2592_zps0ehofvte.jpg

RE: Trailer Life Article about GCWR...etc.

"I see the original question got lost a bit, lets try again. Ford publishes two GVWR rating for MY signature truck 1. 3.73 axle 19,000 lbs 2. 4.30 axle 22,000 lbs" Don't think your truck can weigh 19-22K as in GVWR. If you meant GCVWR that would be more likely. Even then it's all about what your rear tires can handle. Thanks I fixed that typo...Actually GCWR in Ford's Docs

RE: Trailer Life Article about GCWR...etc.

I see the original question got lost a bit, lets try again. Ford publishes two GCWR rating for MY signature truck 1. 3.73 axle 19,000 lbs 2. 4.30 axle 22,000 lbs The only way to know this is to look at the Axle code and then look up the published information. There are no other changes to the truck that I can find beside the gear axle between the two ratings.....Don't get excited...I AM NOT TRYING TO EXCEED anything. My conclusion from reading everyone's input...thank you....is because this number is not on the truck sticker that you SHOULD be able to change it in this particular case. Once again you don't have to tell me about LEO's and Lawyers...I'M NOT TRYING TO EXCEED anything :)

RE: Trailer Life Article about GCWR...etc.

Can you imagine if Trailer Life told people how to exceed their GCWR safely? They'd take practically every bit of blame for any crash, whether or not it had anything to do with an exceeded GCW. Side note. Mods may as well go ahead and shut this one down. We know where its going. So far it seems civil, except maybe you have misinterpreted my question about "Must", which to me implies legal aspects...but I guess it can go to the authors opinion. I would have used "should not" Oh...I don't appreciate you requesting my question be shut down...like I'm trolling :h Lets focus on the question of whether or not I can change my GCWR in my example. FYI...I am under all weights and right at GCWR for my signature setup.

RE: Trailer Life Article about GCWR...etc.

Trailer Life is correct. can you give a little more information since the GCWR is not on any stickers on the truck, if I change my axle gear ratio from 3.73 to 4.30 and Ford published documentation shows the GCWR for each axle ratio why wouldn't I be able to go by the 4.30 GCWR?

Trailer Life Article about GCWR...etc.

I noticed in the Trailer Life October 2016 edition in the article titled "Take a load off": The author states about the GCWR "there is nothing that can be done to increase a vehicle's GCWR and it must not be exceeded." I don't think that is correct, The GCWR is not on any stickers on the truck, if I change my axle gear ratio from 3.73 to 4.30 according to Ford documentation my GCWR with go from 19,000 lbs to 22,000 lbs for my signature truck. Also, "must not be exceeded" ...I would think the "must" is a little strong if is not a legal limit. What say you?
