RE: Price of new Ford 3.5 EB F-150 XLT (Are they Crazy)

Come on guys....doesn't matter who it is, Trump, Hillary, Obama, Mickey Mouse or Superman.....a new fully optioned pick-up is going to cost you a ton of coin and then some.

RE: No shore power

OK, then it has to be a breaker that you missed somewhere....or....if there was a power surge before it went out, possibly it burned out your converter. Hopefully not. Try flipping off and then back on every breaker you can find....

RE: No shore power

You say "none of the breakers were tripped." Did you check the breaker at the power pole itself?

RE: NFL Sunday - My Picks/Your Pics.....

Since my guys are eliminated, I'd like to see a Brady vs Rodgers Super Bowl.

RE: Super Bowl parking?

No suggestions for your question because I have no experience going to a Super Bowl....but, how does one even get tickets for a Super Bowl?

RE: Dead mouse or something: How to find?

You are welcome...It's also got a little hook attachment in case you find the critter you can use it to pull him out.....

RE: Dead mouse or something: How to find?

I have an inspection camera....very handy and have used many times at home and in the trailer......Home Depot. You can also rent them for a couple of hours at tool rental outfits. http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/1000/4f/4f87073e-d431-4b8c-8e86-3cd23a85d6fc_1000.jpg height=300

RE: TT towing advice for the mountains

You have a good combination and should have no problems. Kind of a thumb rule: Go down hill no faster than you towed up that hill. (Living and camping where we do, it's hard to think of not dealing with mountains and steep grades). Having been to Florida a number of times I remember that the highest elevation was an overpass on the highway.....:)

RE: Robofoot reviews?

Thanks for the good info. I hadn't thought about a high angle campsite. Our trailer sits very high so I don't think that will be an issue. I'm somewhat of an accessory junky so I guess I'll give it a try.

RE: Carlisle or Maxxis

Goodyear will be replacing the Marathon line with a new ST called Endurance made in the USA. Supposed to be a far better tire if you can hold on a bit longer. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Goodyear&tireModel=Endurance These new USA made Goodyears are looking promising. They also come with a higher speed rating than the basic ST tires. I will consider them when I need new tires. I have had great service from Maxxis 8008's.

RE: first time buying a new truck

My advice from having made mistakes when buying a tow vehicle in the past is to look beyond the towing capacity and look at the PAYLOAD rating. Lots of trucks out there can pull, but what they can carry when loaded with passengers, gear, AND the loaded trip ready tongue weight of a trailer is the real issue. Good luck with your search.

RE: Carl Edwards To Retire

Completely agree with the idea of slower speeds and flatter tracks Some of the best racing in recent memory have been the road course events.

RE: Best hitch

Lots involved beside the hitch...tow vehicle, tires, tongue weight, trailer load balance, hitch properly set up - to name a few. Lots of good hitches out there. We have had 4 different ones..basic WD hitch, Equal-i-zer, Reece HP Dual Cam and Blue Ox SwayPro that we have now... All did the job, my favorite is the Blue Ox SwayPro for a number of reasons. There are also some very expensive and highly rated ones like ProPride and Hensley - I have no personal experience with these.

RE: Comparing Quality from a Manufacturer?

Certainly one thing to consider is weight for similar length rigs. Compare what you are looking at to the build on an Arctic Fox of similar size. Almost everything in the Fox is heavier build than many others. Even compare the different model lines in the Northwood lineup. There is lots of clues when you start to look hard. Good advice and exactly what we did....and then bought an Arctic Fox...It's our 4 travel trailer...all from different manufacturers. The Arctic Fox (Northwood Manufacturer) is by far the heaviest and the best... and the most expensive. Also check the CC - carrying capacity. Very lightweight entry level units generally have a very low CC.

RE: Trailmanor not winter friendly

Every manual for every trailer out there is jammed with warnings and disclaimers....Lots of CYA stuff... Warning: "Propane is highly flammable."

RE: new shocks

2005 with original shocks....probably any will be better than those....:) Replaced ours with Bilsteins...been very happy with them and they really made a difference both daily driving and towing.

RE: Los Angeles to Mt Rushmore

Honestly, driving/towing 700 miles a day really leaves zero time along the way for, "must sees." Anyway, have a good trip. Mt. Rushmore is a, "must see."

RE: 3/4 ton payload vs. towing capacity

Keep it simple....especially for a 5th wheel and for the next one you are going to buy......go with a 350/3500 (any of the big 3).
