RE: Towing with a Ford E250 Van (4.6 liter, V8) in the mountains

I tow with a 2000 E150 conversion van with a 4.6 with 3.55 gears. I'm towing 5000#. No problem. Just keep over drive off and let that small block sing. Handels the mountains of NJ and PA no problem. I do have rear air bags and a blue ox equalizer hitch. You shouldn't need the air bags do to yours being a 250 but they can't hurt. JKaz

RE: About long-term storage of Honda eu2000i

Run it completely dry of gas. Have a 25+ year old Honda genset that starts on the first pull every time. Never store a small engine more then a month or two with gas in it. Your carburetor will thank you. JKaz

RE: Cold Air Intake

My motorhome is a 1995 Class-C Ford E-350 with a 460 EFI engine...I have upgraded the exhaust with Thorley headers following the dreaded exhaust leaks and snapped bolts...I am now ready to upgrade with a Cold Air Intake system...I'm looking for advise on options both homebuilt and ready made systems...Thanks for a great forum...John from Henderson NV How hard was the job? Power increase? Any bolts break while removing them?. I have been tempted to swap over to headers but it so tight in the class c doghouse that a broken a exhaust bolt might mean pulling the head if not motor. JKaz

RE: spark plug change 99 v10

Get magnetic sparkplug socket attached to an 8-10" extension. They can be had at advance auto and such for $12. There is a universal between the socket and extension. Makes getting by the fuel rails easy. A real time saver in removing and replacing with not having to worry about dropping the plug of losing the socket down the hole. JKaz

RE: comfort shocks

Never heard of them. Im interested, I put bilsteins in my van and MH and i'm not all that impressed definitely ride harsh. My understanding is bilsteins have a lifetime warranty. Wonder if they would do an exchange? When I bought them (e shock) they only listed one shock for my vehicles. JKaz

RE: Can Change 3.55 Gears to 3.73?

You could go with a 2" smaller diameter tire to get you near the 3.73 gear ratio your looking for. JKaz

RE: Bilstein shocks?

I put them on my 2000 E150 conversion van. Up front were I drive they feel great. But out back they are harsh. Kids complained about the ride so I aired up the rear air bags to 30# and they said it was better. Do notice alot more rattles and squeaks that where never there before. Using it to tow my car and trailer this weekend to Ohio we'll see if they are better with some weight on the. suspension. Also put a set on my MH. Took some getting use to the handeling because the old shocks were junk. They do ride harsh. Not what I was expecting consider everyone praise them. JKaz

RE: Ford 4.6 Triton

I have a 2000 E150 conversion van with the 4.6. I have towed my race car on an open car trailer (5500 lbs) for years without a problem. Handel's the mountains of NJ And Pa no problem. And yes I have towed over 70 mph. So the speed police can flame me too. JKaz

RE: Need cruise control cable 1990 E350

1990 was aftermarket cruise control. ALL the RV aftermarket cruise control makers went out of business in the mid 90's when the cruise controls became part of the Chassis equipment. SO, about the only place you may find that cable is from Winne if they still have any. Doug Are you sure? Mine 1989 MH on E350 has a stock ford steering wheel with the controls on the wheel incorporated in the horn. For the OP try car-part.com or your local junkyards. JKaz

RE: Opinion on 01-04 Chrysler Town & Country

I have a 2007 grand caravan cargo I use for work. I was a die hard ford econoline guy until I got this van. I load 1000-1200 lbs of water plus all my gear and if hasn't missed a beat. Its capable of hauling 1700 lbs. Has the auto level suspension that works great. Its got 180k on the clock and I'll get 300 out of it. I have the 3.3 and its got plenty of power. Gets 18-21mpg depending on the load. When I'm loaded I do not use overdrive. I did a lot of research on all mini vans when shopping and the caravan was the way to go. 2006 and up have better transmissions. The trans on the 2005 and below were the week link. Motors if taken care of will run forever. I would not hesitate go buy one, damm good vehicles. JKaz

RE: Donated RV

I MH was donated to the Purple Heart Foundation and I purchased it from the guy who bought it at the auction. Like you I looked it over but it was winterized so I couldn't check the water systems and the gen set would start but not stay running. Bought it anyway because the chassis was so clean and the house had potential. I guess I got lucky all appliances worked except the gen set I through a few $$ at. I later realized the frig and AC had been replaced with newer units so the rig was cared for. I guess it may depend on the charity you get it from. Some charities people use to dump vehicles in poor shape others maybe not. JKaz

RE: Best RV toilet brand

For those of you with bolt down holes not lining up, do you realize that the toilet flange is threaded into the top of the black tank therefor you can rotate or raise it as needed. I had to raise mine 1/4" when I put in laminate flooring. JKaz

RE: Oxygenics Showerhead Problem

I'm sure that you are aware of the flow-control function of the Oxygenics shower head. Make sure that it is rotated to the full open position. I tended to put my hand on it as I twisted the head to spray myself and the flow would be reduced with each twist. You might check to see that that part of the head is functioning properly. Same thing. happened go me. Didn't know the flow controler was there. I had installed an on off switch in lin JKaz
