RE: Refrigerator

If you do not want to use the propane while driving or if the refrigerator is not cooling when on propane just run your generator while driving and leave the refrigerator on electric.

RE: early 90's C on a Ford e350 7.5l V8

Most folks never bother to change the rear axle oil, transfer case and front axle oil (if 4wd), or engine coolant, and let the tranny oil go way too long between changes. Those are things I usually do soon after buying a used vehicle, so I know I'm starting fresh with everything and I have a reference point as to when to change them in the future. I do engine oil/filters and brakes/hub bearings as needed, since most folks do keep up with those somewhat. X2 In addition check the u joints and carrier bearing. There is very little airflow up around the engine and this leads to high temperature around the engine resulting in high amounts of heat coming into the cab and contributes to shorter life of spark plug wires and exhaust manifold problems. Having a air dam fabricated and bolted to the frame immediately behind and below the front bumper will direct air up and around the engine flushing the excess heat out. If you think you are overheating measure the temp of the upper heat radiator hose. Ford used a voltage regulator for the instrument panel that when it starts to fail it will show a false high reading on the temp gauge.

RE: Wheel alignment

From our experience with alignment shops the majority are rip off artists. Had the front end inspected by a very trusted mechanic who found nothing wrong at all. Had three alignment shops state that repairs would have to be made before any alignment. Forth shop did alignment and also found no repairs needed. IMHO have your front end inspected my a mechanic you trust then only go to alignment shops that will not charge you for the initial inspection.

RE: Rving from VT to Cali

With the time constraints Google the fastest route to Denver, From Denver and explore Colorado going West on I 70. Continue on I70 to I15 in Utah and take I15 to Zion area. From Zion go to the Grand Canyon if you have time do the North Rim and South Rim. From Grand Canyon Google map the fastest route San Diego and then Google the fastest route back to Vermont

RE: Our first RV - 27.5' Jayco Class C

We do not use the cab AC only the roof AC. Run the generator going down the road the house part will be nice and cool when you stop. We do use a fan to move the cool house air into the cab and if extremely hot we close the bedroom and the over cab unit off.

Overheating on E350

If you have a 1975 to 1991 E350 and have been experiencing overheating issues you might not be overheating. Our random overheating issues were not overheating it was the instrument cluster voltage regulator experiencing intermittent failure . If your temperature gauge suddenly spikes up check to see if your fuel gauge has spiked to past full also. Then using a infrared thermometer measure the temperature of the upper radiator hose.

RE: Montana registration and insurance

It is legal to do so in Montana but more and more states are going after the citizens in there state that do this for tax fraud.

RE: Need some advice/help PRETTY QUICK Please

DO NOT hookup even just to flush. If the water is contaminated it will contaminate the lines in your RV.

Straight Talk Talking in Circles

Chatted with Straight Talk why that 5 gigabyte of service is $50 but the 7 gigabyte is $75 and because of this the cost per gig of service is higher for the 7 gig purchase than the 5 gig purchase. First thing they said was that of course that the 7 gig was higher because it had more gigs. When I finally got them to understand that I was talking about the cost per gigabyte for the 7 gigabyte was higher than the 5 gigabyte the response was that Straight Talk does not sell by the gigabyte. But there data refills start at one gigabyte. Still chuckling over this.

RE: RVI2 or Blue Ox Patriot

Have you contacted RVI on your concerns about the fit for your jeep?

RE: 1993 Ford E350 Vacuum and A/C question

We do not run the dash air. We run the roof air and use a fan to circulate the air in the cab. With the front air dam reducing the heat from the dog house we are very comfortable and take a heat load off of the engine.

RE: Wifi reception at rv parks

My 2cents worth we have a straightalk mobile hotspot that we are very pleased with. If the park has Wi-Fi I will use it. I will switch to the hotspot for faster speed or security..

RE: Hitch wobble

Drill holes in the receiver sections one on top or bottom and one on either side. Then weld a nut over each hole then screw a hex head bolt into the nut and tighten against the inserted section no slop.

RE: Built in or Portable Gen for a pull behind Toy Hauler

We have had both styles and I prefer the built in Onan. It would be easier to run while traveling so that you could run the AC so that the trailer will be cool when you stop. With out a fuel station it would be easier to go with propane and you could always go to larger propane tanks on your trailer if needed.
