RE: 2,000+ Miles, 10,000lb TT, F250 Gasser

Sounds like a good trip other than your mileage. I'm usually flirting with 12 mpg with my diesel. Gas is ~15% more expensive than diesel in California and my mileage increased ~50%. And diesels have a higher trade in/resale value so everything should be considered. And now I have the diesel grin. Towing is much more enjoyable.

RE: Replacement Transmission for 2000 Ford Super Duty

I used to have a 2000 f250 and it started leaking on a trip at high temp. Got home and went to a Trans shop and he said the front seal ford used was garbage. Changed it and then no problems. Probably only had 30-40k on it then.

RE: Excursion overheats&leaks tranny fl towing going 50,uphill

I had a 2000 f250 that leaked when I was towing. Made it home and went to a local transmission shop. It was the front seal. Shop owner said he got 1 ford a week with the same problem in the summer. He said the factory seals were crap. Fixed and never had another problem.

RE: Easiest route from hwy 101 to ca coast hwy

Or you can take 101 to River road in northern Santa Rosa. Then to 116 and hwy 1. That's how I would go.

RE: How Often to Pack Wheel Bearings

I go 2 years max. I had a bearing go out on me once. Slept on the side of the road and lost 1 day of our trip. Not fun.

RE: 10 weeks and done

I read the whole blog. Sounds like a good trip and great photos. I use to have a camper before our 5th wheel and love the fact you can bring them almost anyway.

RE: diesels and oil pressure

This happened to me too. Climbing a grade and then left off the throttle, Normal pressure is 23 and alarm goes at 9. I brought it to a dealer and no issue. I found hundreds of people online with the same issue. I don't think you have a problem, GM just has the alarm and operating pressure too close together and a momentary dip below 9 psi set it off.

RE: Aftermarket exhaust (electronic) brake

You should be able to activate GM factory tuning for the speed brake in the medium duty trucks. I think it works in all lbz and most early lmm motors. http://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/how-tos-diy-write-ups/321393-lbz-how-activate-factory-turbo-brake.html?nocache=1432181141678

RE: Terrible Experience

I've stayed there and I think there is a sign stating $10 pp per day for day use/visitors. Most of the park is not full hook up so they do the honey wagon thing. Great place for kids but i would go somewhere cheaper if you don't have kids

RE: Worn/broken spring shackles-word of warning

It is such a joke that the manufacturers put such junk on their trailers. I also replaced mine with the Dexter ez flex, shackles, and wet bolts.

Damaged bearing w/pic

Repacked yesterday and had to change this one out. It was the inner bearing. Castle nut seemed too loose. Would that cause this or overloaded? It was on the heavy side (slideout). The other wheel on that side was starting to do this too but not as bad and I changed it too. Had been a little over 2 years since last repacked. http://i1345.photobucket.com/albums/p678/elkhorn98/20150509_081514_zps7eek6fl3.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum recommended limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: How to set brake controller with self adjusting brakes?

I did adjust them before going for a drive and I guess I have to keep using them to get them broke in. They are now working good but can't get them to lock up. I had someone tell me with self adjusting brakes they won't ever lock up. Is that true?

How to set brake controller with self adjusting brakes?

Replaced my complete brake assemblies with Dexter Nev-r-adjust electric brakes. How should I set my controller? After installing we were going for a test drive and had no trailer brakes. Did some manual adjusting and then went and they are getting better. Will do another break in drive but don't know how I should set my controller.

RE: Adjusting Trailer Brakes

Looks like self adjusting brakes.

RE: Maxxis tire failure

Ok I always hear you need a stiff sidewall for trailer tires and st tires are stiffer. But this seems to be completely false in my experience. I switched to lt tires with a similar load rating and my lt tires have a much stiffer sidewall. The st stiffer sidewall seems to be marketing hype. Anyone else see this too?

RE: Trailer Tires

I think trailers don't come with decent lt tires because that would cost the manufacturers a few extra dollars. So we get some overseas st no name brand tires instead. And since the manufacturers got the dot to approve st tires now we have a hard time getting tire shops to put superior lt tires on our trailers.
