RE: Drain hose racks, a good thing?

Some places require sewer hose supports so hose is NOT laying on ground. I have never seen that requirement, not saying it doesn't exist, just saying.

RE: Differential lube

Changed mine at 50K for gas Ford RV's. It was horrible looking, which doesn't mean much but I'm glad I changed it anyway.

RE: Seeking Opinion on F53 Chassis A/C repair cost

Thanks everyone. I asked questions and got more information. The repair was completed and fixed the problem. Chassis A/C working very well now. Be well.That's great. What was broke and where did you go?

RE: Value of Used Michelins ?

Sold all my old ones to some guy who had a fiver. The tires he had were almost bald and ready to go. To him, my older tires with lots of tread were like new tires. Craiglist.

RE: Seeking Opinion on F53 Chassis A/C repair cost

My 2006 compressor sure looked bad too. Turns out it was a minor oil leak from above that collected on the bottom of the compressor. When my ac went out recently, I found green dyed oil all over the bottom of the engine area. Found a great place that specializes in air conditioning. Small lot but arranged to have my 37 footer there really early when they opened. They found a hose with a hole in it. Took them about 2 hours to repair as the fittings near the condenser were seized in the small aluminum block. Find a place that specializes in air conditioning. They can usually make hoses and have the parts needed to repair. Ford only provides the compressor in your F-53, not the hoses or condenser so Ford may change the compressor, they probably will not want to mess with anything else in the system that doesn't belong to them, which is a lot of stuff.

RE: 50 amp plug hitting power panel lip

This was at a brand new campground and I wouldn't want to hack their boxes. Plus, the "socket" area is inset so there really isn't anything to bend to provide clearance. Thanks.

50 amp plug hitting power panel lip

My 50 amp camco male plug with the large handle prevented my plug from fully seating into the female socket because the handle/case hit the panel lip below the socket. This is the first time I had this happen. Is there a small adapter I can plug to extend out the camco plug so the yellow plastic is further out from the campground panel? Thanks.

RE: DROID cellphone

I have a nexus 5. I can use doubletwist app to do the same thing my ipod classic does only on my droid phone.

RE: V10 spark plug issues?

I owned a 2003, 2005, and now have a 2009 never once had a hint of problems with spark plugs. That is not fair and you know it. The 2006 has the splitting spark plug problem. I have yet to change my plugs but am not looking forward to it. I wouldn't by anything but Ford but Ford has had their share of stupid problems. Come on, spark plugs breaking in half?

RE: Two found dead in rv

Hmm, one of the burners were left on. Seems they should have smelled it before they fell asleep. Could be the difference between when you smell something but don't think its bad enough to do something about. That is right around the area I filled up my propane tank and a couple of days later smelled a bad smell from my MH. EVERYONE in the CG was sure it was coming from my gray tank because it was more concentrated by the sink. Turned out it WAS propane from a bumped stove knob. I was to find out that there is no law in place that requires ALL propane companies to use the 'same' 'odor' additive. Every state can put whatever odor they want just as long as one is added. I KNOW what propane smell likes in Wisconsin. The smell they put in when I filled my propane tank in Tennessee did NOT smell anything like it. So if you were like me being my first time out RV'ing away from my home state you wouldn't know that. Live and learn....and I almost didn't and almost blew up the whole MH waiting for mobile repair to come out and replace gray water tank vent while the real culprit propane gas continued to come in. :RJust got home. For the last day have been smelling what I thought was negative air flow up through grey system out through kitchen pipe. It stank exactly like a grey tank. Coincidentally all day driving today, we have heard chirping sound. I'm guess now the propane detector was randomly chirping on limited propane detection. Wife and I have hearing issues and never could identify where it was coming from. The sound was random, and never happened when parked. When we got home tonight, RV was finally quiet. I heard hissing sound from stove. I'll be darned if one burner wasn't turned on low. We just picked up our 4 yr old granddaughter. Not sure if she hit it or I did. Told the wife we are lucky to be alive. Luckily we had the dash heat on all day so we were infusing the RV with gobs of fresh air. We never use the stove. Just didn't sync that the odor was propane. I think I will look for a shutoff valve for the stove if one isn't installed. This is not the first time this has happened.

RE: SeeLevel II issues

I have had nothing but great results after years of use with SeaLevel sensors. Never saw this issue come up. Call them.

RE: Why don't we have a Smart Phone app?

IMO, both issues are partly due to the current forum software, which was custom written in Cold Fusion, and outdated at this stage. It's one reason that an off the shelf solution, such as Tapatalk, for mobile apps cannot easily be implemented, if at all. There have been efforts to explore commercial portal/forum software used by major corporations and organizations as a replacement. However, these would have to be modified with custom code to include unique forum administration functions that are not available in popular forum software. I would venture to guess a replacement forum software has not been a high priority, and one under consideration of which I looked at was eventually dropped. I've not heard of any others being tested, so assuming it has been put on the back burner.It won't be a high priority until more people shift to smart phones and realize they don't have the data limits to keep reading this forum by tethering which is a data hog. I sure would like to hear about those "unique forum administration functions" that other forums don't have.

RE: Why don't we have a Smart Phone app?

Trying to use this forum with Chrome, for example, on my smartphone sucks. The type is way to small and blowing it up makes it too hard to really read without moving everything around all the time. Look at the IRV2 app. Big difference. The app is designed for a smart phone unlike still trying to access this website without an app.

RE: HWH leveler Hose burst

You do not need to replace all the hoses unless you are a control freak like me, and then it won't stop there. It will be all rubber hoses, lines, etc. Take control of it. Replace the broken line and leave it at that. No need to go further. If you can yank that line out, do it, and then get another made cheaply somewhere else. This is not a big job.

RE: Ford V10 pinging

Doesn't look like one. I would keep looking. Run the Ford vin not the chassis to find your exact year. Do you have od on/off or tow/haul on the gear shift? 1st is 2005 and below, second is 2006 later. http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=1988894&cc=1432615 Here is another hint. Go to Fordparts.com, put in your FORD vin, and it will call up your chassis. Then you can search for the part. They include some nifty drawings so you can see the part. I couldn't find the pcv valve doing that but did find a pcv hose. It appeard that the valve plugs into the hose. Maybe one on each side?

RE: Tight screws

I ended up having to buy the plenum pieces that held the screw sockets because most of mine were seized.

RE: tracfone

Same as StraightTalk. Depends on the phone as to whether or not it is V or ATT. I have a new Nexus 5 so I use ATT ST for 45 per month. Yes, I can tether but I don't do it often.
