RE: Fiver Pin Separated From Hitch on Interstate

A lot of speculation and no return of the OP to confirm. So I will state the obvious as everyone is just guessing. Not enough truck for the load. ;) What does this have to do with the subject of a hitch dropping a trailer? :h It was just a joke. I think we have it covered in seven pages with no new evidence. Internet sarcasm is difficult to read even with the :D http://i870.photobucket.com/albums/ab265/mich800/jeff-dunham-peanut-o.gif

RE: How did this bearing get bent?

Maybe you were a little over zealous with what ever tool you used to remove the bearing hub cap? "Ditto" Sounds more like a grassy knoll hypothesis. How could one get a tool deep enough to do that that damage without completely destroying the cap? :B

RE: Twin Turbocharged 4.8L V8 Ecoboost in a Superduty?

And there lies the rub. Most of us need low and mid range torque, not high rpm horsepower which the turbo provides. We are not street racing. For heavy rv application there is no substitute for displacement ?? High rpm for turbo power? The turbo is displacement and high revs are not required to get decent power as the ecoboost shows.

RE: Ford 26 gallon tank

Got rid of the 29 gallon stock tank like AP did and replaced it w/ a 50 gallon Transfer Flow tank. Like the other poster, love it. I like the ability to go 350-400 miles before filling back up VS every 200 w/ stock tank. WOW... that's some pretty bad gas mileage on 70+ gallons of fuel. I think that would be replacement tank not aux. So 50 gallons not 70+

RE: Hand wash only, air dry...

I had the antenna snapped off my '97 F150 by a brush carwash. I learned and always remove it before going through now. I think that this has shown that maybe aluminum trucks aren't quite ready for prime time. Maybe another year or two. :) Was the other fender steel? Or just useing which facts fit the hypothesis. :B

RE: 2017 gmc

Well the front end is a bit different behind the griile, getting part changes established. Anytime there are changes it takes a bit to fix what do you mean by "fix"? "fixing" something implies there's something "wrong" or "broken" Not really something wrong. Just fine tuning the assembly process. I assume that is what he is referring to. This is the case for every vehicle when there are changes.

RE: What is with the $100.00 limit at the fuel pumps?

PIN stands for P(ersonal)I(dentification)N(umber). So saying PIN number is essentially saying Personal Identification Number Number. It drives me crazy, as does SSN number. And you see it in news coverage articles. Argh. Mainly on internet "news" articles so it hasn't spread to actual journalists. It's like the bank around here that started out as United Missouri Bank in the 60's-70's, then they used just the letters: UMB. Now they call themselves UMB Bank. United Missouri Bank Bank. What is wrong with these fools?! Don't forget about asking for the check at the end of your meal.

RE: What is with the $100.00 limit at the fuel pumps?

I had to stop using my Credit Union card for purchasing fuel. Not only would it limit me to $75, it would run a $350 pre approved hold on my account. If I tried to use my card anywhere again for a couple of days it would not authorize! Very frustrating!! The bank would blame the station and the station would blame the bank! bottom line if I wanted to use that card I would have to withdraw the amount of cash I thought it would take to fill the tank, then I could use the card somewhere else for the next few days!! I had a Chevron/Texaco fuel card but the finance charges were to high, plus most stations I have used have a cash discount! Your card is not responsible for obtaining an authorization or hold. That is from who wants the payment. This is entirely the function of the store/vendor and their merchant bank.

RE: What is with the $100.00 limit at the fuel pumps?

The banks or credit card service companies do it as a way to limit fraud or liability for lost or stolen cards. It has been this way for a long time. It was noticeably worse when gas was higher. Don't blame the station. it happens to me too and I just run the card again. No big deal.This isn't always an option. Some stations will NOT let you use the same card twice. For personal reasons, I only carry one card. So my only option If I want a full tank at that stop (I always fill it up) is to go inside..... Wait in a long line of people buying sodas etc, then leave my card with them. Go pump, then go stand in line again. Believe me, I DO NOT go back to that station again. As for the station protecting me from fraud... That is a joke. Any fraudulent charges are NOT charged to me. The card company or station pays them. I have yet to see a chip equipped card reader at a gas station. So that makes the station liable for the fraud. Bottom line.... Some stations are inconveinencing their customers because they will NOT install the equipment needed to prevent fraud. NOT because they are trying to protect me. They are not protecting YOU from fraud. They are capping their risk for a bad card in a no sign transaction. The stations or situations where I know I may go over the limit, I just go in and authorize $200 or something like that. Go pump and you will only be charged for the actual price at the pump. No need to go back in unless you need the receipt for the actual amount.

RE: What is with the $100.00 limit at the fuel pumps?

I used to have that, then I graduated from high school and my bank said it was ok to spend what I wanted.... Seriously though, all you have to do is call your bank and ask them to remove the limits. No, it is not your card. It is the limits that the specific station has set with their merchant bank provider.

RE: running lights on cars and trucks

All the vehicles I have had here in Canada have had DTRL's |They only come on half as bright as the low beam. The tail lights do not come on which I personally think they should be on as well. My 2008 F250 was originally a export to Canada so it has the DRL. But at least for this one it is just the regular low beams that come on when the vehicle is put in gear. Not a lower powered light.

RE: Didn't want to hIjack.

I don't know if this is true for all cars, but my RV, Chevy, and my pickup, Ford, have the filler on the driver's side. My Subaru has the filler on the passenger side. So in my case, vehicles built (designed) where cars are driven on the right have the filler on the left, where the driver sits. Cars from places where cars are driven on the left have the filler on the right, where the driver sits. I know there are exceptions to this rule though. Not sure about that. Our 2002 Explorer is on the right.

RE: Insurance on Rented Travel Trailer?

Maybe asking the wrong questions. Many renters insure rental cars either part of their auto policy or via the credit card that paid for it. I always decline the auto rental insurance as I am covered by my own policies and how I paid for it. If this is a towable it will be a little different but nothing unique that should create such confusion.

RE: Receiver hitch won't latch. Help!

I cannot really picture what you are talking about. But try this. When the hitch is sitting on the ball, get in your vehicle and cycle it through drive, reverse and back to park. Maybe it is in a bind.

RE: 2017 F450 shooting flames :0

I'm still scratching my head at page 1. NOWHERE in that letter does Ford refuse to do anything about the issue. In fact they expressly said they would fix it under warranty. The owner is just reacting irrationally. Rather than have this turn into yet another skewed media circus, Ford smartly reversed course and bought back the truck. The term "death trap" was probably bandied about. News flash: EVERY vehicle on the road is a DEATH TRAP. Better just stay home and hide under the covers. I agree. The letter does not reconcile with the story. Could you imagine if every warranty repair necessitated a buy back? The air bag recalls alone would be a huge buy back.

RE: What does CA Cap & Trade cost us?

Interesting. I have never saw or noticed that. Around here I believe it just states price includes all applicable taxes or something to that effect.

How do you keep track of fuel taxes?

RE: Fiat and Cummins in court

Btw, the federal reportable spill quantity for Diesel fuel is 100lbs or those that violate applicable water quality standards. Some states have adopted more strict standards, but I highly doubt the EPA is going to fine anybody if they accidentally spill a little fuel on the ground before the nozzle clicks off. Judging from most gas stations I have been to, the EPA must be taking in fines hand over fist. :D I have to be to one that did not have a little gas and a lot of diesel around the pumps. The EPA really doesn't care about that sort of thing. You're not describing a spill to the ground. That's a spill to a paved area where the runoff is supposed to be caught and at minimum run through an underflow skimmer to prevent hydrocarbon reaching the ground/water table. Canopies typically aren't installed over pump islands so the users can do their thing out of the sun and weather. The canopy is there to minimize stormwater that has to be collected and treated. I guess we will just have to agree to agree. :)
