RE: DEF Warning in F350

How much did you add? The tank is 5 gallons. If you used a 2.5 gallon jug it is possible that the level isn't above the sensor yet. Do as others said and fill up more. Mine resets within seconds of filling it up.

RE: gas stations

Sorry for bringing this thread back to life... We just completed a trip from Ohio to Florida and back without our trailer. Along the way in the back of my head I tried to see how many RV friendly fuel stations were along the way that sold diesel. I didn't see too many that would allow a 1/2 tank allowance for my 26 gallon tank and most if not all had their pumps aligned perpendicular to the store. Has anyone been in such a pinch that you have dropped your trailer in a parking lot just to fuel up?

RE: Car wash?

I take my '12 F350 4x4 into a 7' car wash all the time in the winter. As jus2shy said you need to bring the mirrors in. Truck also fits into my 7' tall garage with about an inch to spare.

RE: Zinger question

Maybe the time of the year it was built or a large special order from the dealer? My Zinger is a 260BH. Others say 26BH. Exact same trailer though.

RE: Alrighty gents... and a few ladies... looking at an 09 F350

Price does seem a bit high, but that is Los Angeles. I bought my fully decked out '12 Lariat with 36k for the same price a year ago.

RE: Fastway Flip Jack Foot?

What do you do when you need the tongue as low as possible and the foot gets in the way? Is it easy to remove?

RE: satelitte dish

Which box do you have? May try it again and reset the satellite settings, choose 18" dish and multi-switch LNB.

RE: satelitte dish

I use a D-12 standard definition receiver with the 18" dish. I have never tried using a high-def receiver with this setup, but it should work as long as you tell the box that you are using a 18" dish with an LNB (can't remember the exact wording but you don't want to use the SWM setup. I think it is something like multi-switch.) When I plug it back in at home, the receiver sees the SWM setup and automatically reconfigures itself for home. If you wanted to buy one you'd have to lease it from DirecTV with a new access card. I just pull one out of a bedroom that I keep around for camping.

RE: satelitte dish

Using an 18" oval dish? I have a SWM system at home and know the system needs a power injector for the LNB on the dish for it to work. I just use a standard def box while camping with an 18" dish and it works fine.

RE: satelitte dish

As Steve said that loop is there to allow your dish to hook up. The dish signal won't pass through the power injector that feeds the antenna amp. Unhook the loop and hook your receiver into one of those outputs.

RE: How would you maintain this seam?

^^ agreed. Just replace the insert. My three year old trailer's insert looks brand new. What happened to yours!?

RE: Cleaning the outside of TT

Be careful using Awesome. It is pretty caustic at full strength. I accidentally left some on my aluminum sided trailer and it permanently etched the finish in spots. If you use it, be sure to rinse very well!

RE: Dirty roof-what are you guys using to clean?

Cleaning does help keep the black streaks at bay at least for a little while.

RE: Dirty roof-what are you guys using to clean?

+1 on powder spic n span. The only place I have found it is on Amazon.com. Just got a box delivered today in fact.

RE: caulking

Either ProFlex or the non-sag version of Dicor.

RE: Ford Ecoboost gas mileage and reliability???

I had an '11 EcoBoost with 3.55 gears. Normal day to day driving I got 17-18 while towing a 7000 lb trailer gave me 6.9-8 depending on winds, route, etc. The only reason I have the rig I have now was the minimal payload I had on the F150. 1,400 lbs was quickly used after the tongue weight and family. Other than that I loved the truck and the engine was incredible. In comparison my F350 gets 18 day to day and 12 towing.

RE: Ford 6.7L Diesel Breakdown and Inspection

This guy tore apart a turbo from a 6.7 PSD. Starting at this post he tries to smash, cut, destroy a bearing from it. He never could. Not sure how they are turning to dust as stated in the video. Looks more like the races are weak... Clicky

RE: How are the new Ford diesel engines?

2012 F350 Lariat with 6.7 PSD. Daily driver with 40,000 miles. Only issue so far is a leaky main radiator tank. This seems to be a common problem with all Fords. Covered under warranty. Great truck!!

RE: High cost of caulk repairs

I'm convinced all the bouncing around these trailers do is the cause of sealant breakdown. My co-worker has a 2004 KZ that sits at a permanent site and gets moved maybe four times a year. No leaks. My 2012 Crossroads has maybe 3500 miles on it and I have had to fix numerous seals already.
