RE: Ford F350 2003 - issues?

I don't know my '05' F250 6.0 PSD turned over 100,000 miles this summer on our extended trip. It seems to be running fine. We don't drive it on short trips around town. It is used almost exclusively for pulling our fiver long distances.

RE: Where to buy good semi-cheap ratchet socket set in USA?

For some who seldom use their tools go to Harbor Freight for low priced, but completely usable tools.

RE: Best or favorite type rug to put outside your door

We lay out a long roll of outdoor carpeting on our gravel pad, then a pallet covered with AstroTurf, a small rug on top of that and another just inside the door, and I'm still sweeping out pebbles and pine needles! We have no dogs or little kids either. X2 The only solution is take your shoes off as mentioned above. What we do after our long summer road trips (5,000 t0 8,000 miles) is to do an occasional sweeping or a quick vacuum when traveling. Then I do a thorough shampooing of the rug when we get home. Done that for fourteen years now and we still are using the original rug.

RE: Changing Tires to Michelins?

I don't know what size tires you require, but if they make a Michelin XPS Rib to fit your trailer I would go for that. With the Rib's you will have complete peace of mind. To use the old Timex jingle, they will take beating and keep on ticking.

RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

I started pulling a fifth wheel in 1996 and I had the same problem you are having. I had the most problems with Goodyear Marathon St tires. Then I went to Cooper truck tires load range E. I still blew tires. I tried Maxxis's and had one of these fail on me. I was beginning to wonder what I was doing wrong as I religiously looked after my tires and kept everything up to spec as you said you do. I had people telling me I was driving too fast and I was underinflating or over overinflating etc. Along about, 2004, I was at the Carriage factory with my rig to have a wheel well rebuilt from a tire blow out. A customer at the factory told me about Michelin XPS Rib tires. I put them on and my tire problems totally disappeared. I am now on my second set of these tires. I put 5000 to 8000 miles a year on these Michelin tires in the heat of summer. They are expensive to buy (over $200 a tire), but, for me, it is money well spent. Now I venture out without worrying when the next tire will fail. They just don't fail. They keep going and going. They make these tires in the 235/85 R16 size.

RE: water line leaking

It sounds to me that you may have a burst water line rather than just a loose fitting. Perhaps you should start looking for a damaged water pipe or hose rather than tightening fittings.

RE: low water pressure at CG

We have this problem a lot. When the pressure gets too low we resort to turning on our fresh water pump and drawing water from our onboard water tank.

RE: Have you gone from a larger rig to a smaller one?

In the year 2000 we downsized from a 34 foot fiver to the present 30 foot fiver we have today. We find our 30 to be just the right size for the two of us.

RE: On the road with a Keurig Coffee Maker

My wife and I just completed a 6,000 mile tour up the east coast then to mid America, down to Missouri and Texas and home to Florida. We were on interstates, US highways and state and county roads. We found the roads rougher than ever this year. We have a Keurig that we left at home. I don't think the Keurig would have survived our trip.

RE: Blocking window light and heat ?

We totally blacked out the windows in our fiver's bedroom with an opaque film that sticks to the glass. We did it ourselves, but any good car window tinting business should be able to do a good job. It does the job and looks good on the outside as well as the inside.

RE: Refrigerator

I think the fuse on the frig's electro panel may be blown. Take the cover off that panel and check the fuse. As I remember it is a 5 amp fuse.

RE: Do these temps sound right

Those temperatures sound normal to me. It is in the range of the tire temps on my truck and fiver.

RE: No hot water pressure

Have you check all the hot water faucets to see if this no hot water exist on all of them. If you have pressure at another faucet there is the possibility that a bit calcium from the hot water tank is lodge in the faulty faucet valve.

I must be getting too old. I would like to help you as we rode the train in Durango last year, but I do not know what c2c means nor do I understand your use of the word covered.

RE: Gas or Diesel

If he tows in the mountains, the diesel is nice to have. Have they fixed the exhaust brake on the Ford to work as well as Ram and GM's? I was not aware that the Ford Super Duty trucks were equipped with exhaust brakes. My truck has a braking capability, but it is with the transmission which shifts down and takes advantage of engine compression to slow the truck. Do the newer Fords actually use the exhaust for braking?

RE: Bedroom slide out leak

Are you catching the water in a plastic pan in the basement? Is the rug on the slide out floor getting wet? In any event, if it were me I would be checking all the gaskets, that seal the slide when it is closed, to see that they are in place and/or damaged.
