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

RE: V-10 Radiator Reservoir

Car-part.com type in your info and it will give you a list salvage yards in your area. Ford made millions of them. Hou may need to use an E-350 for model, they used that type of overflow. Why by new when used will do. JKaz

RE: Exhaust manifold bolt ... advice needed!

I would weld a nut on before your trip. As the .manifold heats up it expands and the nut will hold it in place. You do not want it to become an exhaust leak that is right next to your spark plug wire. I had two broken bolts on mine, one was like yours that I welded a nut to and other was flush with the head. For that one I drilled and tapped it and put a stud and a nut. I do have a slight exhaust leak but it quiets done as the manifold heats up. JKaz

RE: rear Bilsteins how to tighten top nut?????

Got it. Pulled one back out looked into end of shaft and looks like some kind of torx bit. Tried a 5mm Allen wrench and if grabbed. Had to tighten with an open end wrench instead of a ratchet. But its done. JKaz

rear Bilsteins how to tighten top nut?????

Putting Bilsteins on my rig. Figured the fronts would be a pain so I did them first. When I got to the rears how do you tighten the top nut. The shaft turns as you turn the nut. The dust cover is flexible and not part of the shaft. If I could get an impact gun on them then I could just buzz them on but floor is right there. Any DIY guys run into this? Thanks JKaz

RE: Dumping tanks- Waiting lines

So got a question....... For those that are waiting in the dump line, is every site in the cg without sewer? I've only camped without sewer a few times but both times friends with me just pulled into a sewer site when the others left and were able to take their time with no lines. I have a sewer clean out at home close enough to my driveway so I just use that.+ :S Why didn't I think of that. X2 Im doing that next time great idea!!! JKaz

RE: How much would you pay for this rv?

Also have to mention that its a 2004 ford diesel. Which it probably has the 6.0 motor. It wasn't fords best diesel. Can be made bullet proof but for big $$$. If its on a 2002 1/2 chassis with the 7.3 that's a different animal. JKaz
