RE: drivers side mirror loose

This happened to me. I tore that section under the window all out and rebuilt it from the inside out. Original fiberglass still in place. That section is now very solid. Original owner used bolts and metal plates to keep mirror in place and I was too stupid to realize the wall was shot. In the end, it was a bunch of work but you would never know.

RE: B.O.M.B.

I use this gizmo after I ditched the bomb. All HDMI into it, HDMI out. It also strips off audio so I can laser it to the surround sound system. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017MUWYLS/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

RE: Ford F-53 V-10 with a 5R110W 5 Speed Trans. Filter(s)

For earlier 5r100w, folks are also recommending changing the pan out for a 2008 pan which allows you then to use the good filter (FT-180). The 2006 has a screen only filter and that external toilet paper roll. When the external filter gets clogged, it just bypasses it. In reality, the 2006 only filters about 10% of the fluid. If you change the pan and put in the better filter, you will filter 100% fluid. If you don't do that, there is an aftermarket external filter that is supposed to be much better than the Ford toilet paper roll. http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/6-0l-performance-parts-discussion/1075009-08-trans-pan-filter-upgrade-quick-summary.html http://www.filtranllc.com/home/documents/ProductNewsBulletin-TheTrap-030508.pdf https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072J77ZG9/?coliid=I20PXS4DC4LLXR&colid=13FBUULZXH8RH&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

RE: Ford F-53 V-10 with a 5R110W 5 Speed Trans. Filter(s)

Your year probably does not have the external filter (I think they stopped at 2008). If you have it, it would be under the right side. Crawl under and look up. http://www.dieselhub.com/maintenance/5r110w-torqshift-service.html

Did you have to replace the entire countertop?

RE: Gas stations for Class A gassers with space

Try to look for stations that have the lanes horizontal with the station instead of vertical (if that makes sense). I have found that most Shell's and some BP's tend to have the horizontal design. I tend to avoid stations like the plague where you pull straight in. I also take the time the night before the look at my exit on google maps street view so I can see which station I want to use and how it is laid out.

RE: any experience at Wilderness Camp at Disney???

I am happy to see so many people that would prefer to stay elsewhere. WOW talk about misreading what has been posted ... 15 positives and 4 negatives out of 30 responses thus far is IMO hardly "so many people":S:E Our typical stay there for the last 10 years has been is 40 to 70 days once a year!!! Before that it was generally 2 to 4 weeks. This year will be our 21th in the last 33 years and our total nights at FW just over 650. LarryMy hard to decipher point I was trying to make was more people away from Disney, makes it easier for people like me to get in to the Fort. Stay away I say, it is horrible and overpriced. You won't enjoy it at all (as I take a short walk from my camp site to the boat launch for a quick 10 minute trip back to MK after a nap).

RE: any experience at Wilderness Camp at Disney???

I would actually like to see them expand the fort. Lots of undeveloped land around the lake.

RE: Need new front springs Ford F53

Have replaced my front u bolts twice now, both times with aftermarket because I have spacer blocks under the springs on the front axle. There was no issue having them made for the F-53. I used two different shops years apart and I believe they got them from two different sources. First set replaced because I was worried the first shop may have over torqued them after the alignment guy told me to get alignment done he just tightened up the ubolts on one side. Needless to say I had the alignment redone at a different place. For future reference, please share what shops you used to get the bolts. Gotta be cheaper than what I paid my local Ford dealer. After I had measured the original OEM u-bolts, SD Truck Springs told me they didn't have the dies to bend new ones to that measurement, and a local industrial supply store couldn't find them anywhere. Getting the proper length wasn't an issue, but getting the proper width was. On my rig, the u-bolts go around/on top of the spring and through the front solid axle, not around the axle with a tension plate for the nuts to tighten against. The buts tighten against the axle itself so they had to be an exact fit to match the holes. I just assumed that all F53s were the same. As for the end bolts, I could find the right grade and overall length, but the shoulder was too short and left threads inside the eye of the spring. Not a good idea to have threads in a position of structural support.I am not sure where the shops I used obtained the ubolts. The last place told me they got them from a place in Knoxville. These were both large truck repair places where I had the work done.

RE: RV windshield repair

Progressive recently paid for my reset with a windshield replacement though. OP, I would try calling Duncan and ask them if they can recommend an installer in your area. Call that shop then and get your estimate. I found a local installer by using a nationwide RV glass company installer locator section of their website. Dig around. Call the 1800 and tell them you want to know who their installer is before going any further. Mobile RV glass for example is not really mobile, they contract out. My local RV glass shop says he has contracts with 2 or 3 different companies.

RE: Drivers Seat

Try these. I gave away my Flexsteel seats because I couldn't in good conscious sell them to anyone. RV SeatsThanks for that link. Does their chairs bolt right up to the Flexsteel base? I looked at truck seats but too much work to modify for RV.

RE: Drivers Seat

Don't waste money on Flexsteel. Horrible seats. Even had mine removed and restuffed but doesn't really help.

RE: Fort Widerness

Blast from the past. When I first camped there the steam train was running around the campground. Told my dad how much we have to pay next month - he told me he paid around $35 when he first camped there. I remember using tickets to get on rides.

Maybe Trainer will pipe in, he eats these things for breakfast.

RE: Clicking sound in front a/c - heat pump

I wonder if it was ice buildup? The rooftop heat pumps don't have a defrost like residential. I bet it was ice. Next time take off the cover and look. Watch next day to see water running off the roof.
